Wendy Fuller’s passion for real estate was borne out of personal experience when she dreamt of creating a better life for herself and her two daughters. She grew up in West Hill and raised her family in Durham Region and East Toronto. By reading the housing market and consequently creating personal wealth by buying and selling her own homes, she discovered her knack for negotiating. Wendy understands that family is often the driving motivator for a client’s desire to buy or sell, and she has built a successful career for over three decades by applying this understanding and compassion to every client relationship. She is driven to help individuals find properties that are perfectly matched with their dreams.
Wendy’s life is full with a deep-rooted love for road trips, live music and spending time with friends and her five grandchildren. A hiker by nature, she dreams of someday spending her winters in Sedona, Arizona; exploring the canyons and enjoying the beauty of the red rocks. In the meantime, you might find her playing princesses with her granddaughters, enjoying the theatre with her teenage grandson or playing on the floor with her twin grandsons who are severely affected by autism. You might meet her special family when she hosts her annual family Open Houses at the Knox Pumpkin Farm or celebrating an Old Fashioned Christmas at Santa’s Cabin.

First Impressions Remember, when a prospect comes to look at your house, the first thing they will see is your home's front door! Make it look fresh and clean. Be sure your lawn and landscaping is well manicured and trim looking. Be sure the yard is free of refuse and leaves. If it has snowed, be certain the ice and snow is removed from walks and steps.
What You Show Is What You Get Faded walls and worn woodwork will reduce the appeal of your home. Why try to tell a prospect how your home could look when you can show them by a reasonable amount of redecoration? A quicker sale at a higher price will result. Invest in wallpaper in the kitchen or bathroom. It will pay dividends for you.
Let the Sun Shine In Open those drapes and curtains all the way, so the prospect can see how bright and cheerful your home is.
Fix That Leaky Faucet Dripping water discolours sinks and suggests to the buyer that the plumbing may be faulty or worn out.
Little Things Mean A Lot Take a few minutes to check to be sure that your doors don't stick or have loose knobs on them. Don't forget your windows and cabinet drawers. Try and repair any minor flaws since they do detract from your home's value. Safety First and Always Be certain stairways are clear and clean since this will avoid injuries around your home, as well as avoid distraction to the potential buyers.
From Top To Bottom Display your attic, basement, utility space and crawl spaces by removing all unnecessary articles. A coat of paint can do wonders if your basement appears dark and dreary.
Big Closets Make them look bigger by having them neat and well organized to show that your home has ample closet space.
Bathrooms Sell Homes Make those rooms absolutely sparkle. Check and repair any damaged or discoloured caulking in the bathtubs and showers, and be sure that the towels and area rugs are bright.
Bedrooms Shouldn't Sleep Keep those rooms bright and cheerful. Remove any excess furniture and be sure to use attractive and colourful bedspreads, and fresh curtains.
Shine On Your home's illumination can be a "welcome sign" to that prospective buyer! Turn on all your outside and inside lights when showing your home at night and they'll feel a glowing warmth as a result of your lighting.
