I have done 2 deals recently through ICIWorld.!
Hello Gary,Just to inform you that I have done 2 deals recently through ICI! It is, no doubt, the best online site in Canada for real estate – especially commercial. I’ve already sold:
“Bargain Shop” – in an extremely remote and small Northern Ontario area through ICI – another realtor saw my posting and come up with her client’s offer that has now been accepted.
Retirement Home in Niagara Falls – I contacted the owner who posted his ad on ICI – but was not able to sell on its own – the buyer saw it through my web-site and the deal has gone through – that was an example of using ICI and redirecting info through another marketing source.
I also got in touch with numerous investors and realtors through your website and most likely there will be more deals as a direct, or indirect, result of it.
