Long overdue review! Excellent service provided by the Prior Group to sell my townhouse. Davide Augello and Michael Prior were professional, knowledgeable and patient. They guided me through every step and took all the worry out of the process. Also was really happy with the vendors they work with to prepare the sale such as lining up someone to complete small repairs and Opulence Staging to present my home. The entire staff is friendly and genuine and assist you to moving day and follow up after. Above and beyond what I was expecting :) Thank you again for taking good care of us!

Our experience with The Prior Group has been incredible. We purchased and sold with them and it couldn't have gone better. We trusted their team with our sale and purchase and they are so knowledgable, very professional, and such amazing kind people. If you are looking for an honest team to help you, this is it. Nothing compared to the service and experience we received here. We will be forever clients and can't wait to continue to build our real estate portfolio with The Prior Group!

Mike and his team were fantastic the whole way through our buy-side process. We engaged Mike nearly 3 years prior to educate ourselves on the market and process; he remained patient and professional throughout, valuing the long-term relationship over any short-term transaction pressures. Ultimately, when it came time to pull the trigger, Mike was our first call. His level of service -- before, during and post-close -- gave my fiancee and me great comfort in the purchase of our first home. His level of communication eased our first-timer uncertainties while his expertise during viewings gave us confidence on when to pass and when to jump in.

Michael and Shannon + their team helped us find our dream home. They educated us not only on the market, but on home ownership and affordability. They were patient when we were indecisive and action oriented when we were ready to make an offer. After winning our bid on the dream home, our move was completely seamless with the value adds The Prior Group provides along the way. They are highly recommended!

Amazing service from start to finish. My husband and I worked with Davide Augello to find our very first home in Toronto, and you won’t find a better agent out there. Davide is incredibly knowledgeable but very discreet, he was never pushy or anything like that. He has given us great advice throughout the process that helped us better understand what we were looking for and what our price range needed to be. We found our home in less than a month and we couldn’t be happier. My husband and I are both from Italy and buying a house so far of our home country was a scary process, especially in Toronto’s crazy real estate market, but Davide and the rest of the team at the Prior Group guided us the whole time and provided great resources to help us. We honestly couldn’t have asked for a better experience. A huge thank you to Davide and the rest of the team!

My partner and I were extremely impressed with Michael and Shannon and the rest of the Prior Group team as the assisted us in buying a new home and renting our previous one. They made the entire process easy, including helping us with the mortgage broker, finding us a renter/property management firm, the move itself, and any other issues that came up. They accommodated our busy schedules and were available on short notice. We would highly recommend the Prior Group.

We mostly worked with Davide from the Prior Group. He was very helpful, friendly, professional and very personable. He made sure we stuck to our wish list and we never felt pressured to make a decision. He guided us through every step of the way and answered countless questions (before, during and after). He was flexible with his schedule and always made time for us. The team he works with that we got a chance to meet virtually (such as Shannon, Kelly and Bonnie) are all very knowledgeable, helpful and pleasant individuals. We were referred to them (The Prior Group) and we would work with them again. Thanks again for everything.

My wife and I had a fantastic experience buying our first home with Shannon. She and the entire Prior team was there to help throughout the process and made sure we, as first time buyers, had everything we needed. Attentive, knowledgeable and honest... Couldn't have asked for better.

I found Michael Prior in an ad on Facebook offering a free estimate of what our home is worth. I completed the form and heard from Michael a few days later but we had decided to put it off so I didn't respond. Michael didn't give up and didn't harrass me ... he just sent friendly reminders every once in awhile along with tips on buying and selling. We finally decided to meet with him and he was happy to make an appointment. We found him to be friendly and professional. We told him that it would probably be at least 6 months before we would be ready to do anything and he responded, 'That's fine, I have 6 months to earn your trust and your business.' And he did certainly earn our trust and business. We decided to sell early this year and Michael was more than helpful getting us ready for that. Unfortunately, everything came to a screeching halt the week before we were going to list. Michael kept in touch with us through April, May and June and we decided to list in July. Michael advised us on the best time and price points and we ended up thrilled with the results of our sale. Michael also helped us with a realtor in Halifax that helped us to buy our home here. His team was also the best from his assistant Kelly, our stager Karina, our painters and everyone we dealt with. We have no hesitation recommending the Prior Group...a great experience!

Mike and Shannon were professional and responsive throughout the whole buying process. They were very knowledgeable and I appreciated their personal consulting session. Super happy that I engaged with them to purchase my first condo.
By: Jason C
Smooth process. Great communicator. Very knowledgeable and patient as we looked at many, many properties in Toronto. Very quick to respond. Client-first mentality. Strong negotiator, our negotiation went on for many hours, and he won the bidding war for us. Highly recommend!
By: Lou and Marta
Michael and his team are very professional and easy to talk with. I highly recommend him as he is very knowledgeable and will get the job done. Michael and his team will give you feed back on what the property needs to sell and what the buyers are saying. Straight facts and no BS!
By: Jacob K.
I would recommend Mike’s expertise without hesitation. He is a genuinely nice person with impeccable prowess at the negotiating table. Mike helped us both on the buy & sell side and we were very happy with our experience. On the buy side, he was patient as our desires were specific and needs not urgent, so it took a while to find exactly what we were looking for. When the right opportunity arose, he guided us through a successful bully offer that landed us exactly what we were looking for. On the sell side, he acted quickly to establish a plan and mapped everything out to a calendar so we could stick to it. He helped us immensely through the entire process from the initial pricing strategies to the final staging special touches. When offer night came, his strategic guidance landed us well above asking.

I hired Michael and the team at The Prior Group to sell my house and was blown away by the level of service Michael and his team provided. They were very professional, a wealth of knowledge and completely transparent throughout the selling process which put me at ease during each stage from start to end. They provided a premiere agency service that I did not know existed or was available for selling my house and included a host of tools and resources at my disposal. Their knowledge of the Toronto real estate market and ability to use creative ways to market my property allowed me to not only sell my house on our planed timeline, but set a record in my area for highest selling dollar value of all time (woohoo!). I knew I was in great hands working with Michael, Mark and the team as their responsiveness and tenacity in providing updates and ensuring I was prepared for every step was apparent right out of the gates which earned my trust quickly which made me feel that I made the right call putting the my property in their capable hands. I would very highly recommend anyone thinking about using a full service brokerage (and I mean end-to-end full service) to give The Prior Group a call and explore what they can do for you, I know it was the best decision I made in selling my house!!

The Prior Group was a dream team to work with for our first time buy! Mike helped us out in every way possible and was so informative and patient with us. Morning and night Mike was always there to answer any questions and provide extensive market knowledge. The Prior Group helped us tick all the boxes and move into our perfect home. Thanks guys!!
By: Maria and Ron
We found Michael Prior to be a very professional realtor. He really listened to our needs and empathized with our concerns about selling a family home. He developed a selling and marketing strategy which was in line with home sales within the neighbourhood but was also aligned with our comfort level. We highly recommend Michael as a trusted realtor.
By: Laura J.J.
Michael was a delight to work with! From our first meeting to well after we moved into our new place, he was an amazing resource, easy to communicate with, and fun to be around. Highly recommend him and his whole team.
By: Niamh B.
Mike and the team really go above and beyond in terms of attentiveness and client-focus, something extremely important in today's market! Expert knowledge of the current market and the neighbourhoods in Toronto allowed us to act fast and have a real competitive advantage. Mike is extremely professional and quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had throughout this process and I hope to work with him and his team again in the future!
By: Mark I.
The Prior Group is a five star real estate team. They take the worries and hassles out of the buying and selling process. They are transparent, hard-working agents who truly care about their clients needs. I would recommend The Prior Group to anyone looking to buy or sell in downtown Toronto.
By: Gerry M.
Sold our condo and bought our dream home in the same week with the Prior Groups full service approach. Michael even did some free carpentry work himself for us. Realtor for life.
By: Dave G.
Mike was extremely helpful in my apartment search. He took the time to ensure I got a good viewing of the property and an idea of what life in each area I was looking in would be like. This showed his deep knowledge of the city as I was looking in various areas, his honesty as a character and a witty sense of humor. I fully recommend using Mike to help you find a place – thanks again Mike!
By: Yuling W
Michael and Shannon from the Prior Group were so helpful, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with. They went above and beyond helping my husband and I find our first home, giving us advice about things we didn’t know about as first time homebuyers. They made the process simple and we would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking to buy a home.
By: John A.
Fantastic service from the Prior Group. Made my first home purchase easy and took much of the stress away! They take care of all of the small details so you don't have to.
By: Joseph M.
My wife and I originally chose another realtor to help us sell our condo. Michael gave me a call and insisted to let him make his pitch. It was during his pitch where I realized he was the right guy for the job. If you're looking for attention to detail, an end-to-end process that is clear, concise, easy and rewarding, then there is no better decision than to go with Michael Prior. He uses a marketing approach that spans many mediums. He has the contacts and the drive to get you the best value for your property. He's a straight shooter, and his supporting staff back at the office are top notch as well. Don't be surprised if you see his face on a billboard in 5-10 years. The billboard might be a bit of an eyesore, but at least you''ll know that he knows what he's doing :-). Thanks again Michael! And to all of you reading this, just give him a chance to make his pitch.
By: Peter J.
I would highly recommend Michael and his team at The Prior Group. Michael is a true professional...knowledgeable, patient and a great communicator. We listed our downtown rental property with him, and he was able to sell it for us while meeting all our expectations regarding price, terms and conditions. He was really on our side through the whole process, and did not pressure us to sell when the market went down. He, very unselfishly, suggested we hold off listing until market conditions improved. We did, and were able to get the price we were looking for when the market improved.

There is something to be said for people who are experts at what they do. My husband and I trusted Michael at The Prior Group from day 1 when it came to selling our house in Toronto. His professionalism, marketing approach and sales strategy exceeded our expectations - he thoroughly explained each part of our custom plan that he prepared for us so we could anticipate the steps of the sales process and the potential outcomes. What you see is what you get - and when it comes to selling your greatest asset, you want the best people behind you. Mike and his team at The Prior Group will give you the high quality service you are looking for. We couldn’t be more thankful.
By: Linda A.
Mike is one of the finest, hard-working real-estate agents I have had the pleasure of working with. Not only did Michael sell my home in south Etobicoke, in record time, he also helped me purchase the loft of my dreams, and worked diligently to create a bully offer, which was successful. All marketing material for the home I sold was top quality and made both the sale and purchase seamless with no stress. I highly recommend Michael Prior!
By: Michael M.
Hi, I really felt compelled to write a note about my dealings with Michael Prior. I met Michael over a year ago. We had gone to an open house purely because I was curious to see the inside of the house he was showing. I was honest and told Michael that yet he still took the time to completely show me the house. That really impressed me as other agents would have just brushed us off. A year later when I was ready to sell my condo and buy a house Michael was the first agent I called. I gave him a very difficult task to find me a house on a tight budget in a very aggressive market in the city. He was very open and honest along the way and helped me to refine the area that I was looking at. I had very high expectations yet Michael never got frustrated. We had decided not to look at a house that I really liked because we thought it would be out of my price range Michael continued to monitor the house and when the situation changed brought it to my attention and we ended buying the house within my budget. I can't say enough about Michael's approach, he is patient but more importantly he really cares, not fake, but truly cares. I would not think about using any other agent in Toronto in the future. THANKS MICHAEL

We purchased a condo on Toronto's waterfront in late 2016. Michael gave us great insight and solid advice regarding the condo market. Thanks to him we bought at the right time and at a great price. I couldn't be happier with his services.
By: Cari M.
Mike's professional, thoughtful, and had our best interests at heart. He asked questions that allowed us to narrow down our search, provided tips about real estate that we wouldn’t have known doing it alone, and was able to negotiate to get us a great deal. We are so grateful to Mike for helping us make Toronto home!
By: Beverley C.
Bought our first condo with Mike Prior and it was a great experience. He was always available whenever we had questions, and was very knowledgable. I'm so happy with our new home :)
By: Joe De M.
Mike is worth every cent! He is honest and hardworking, I had complete faith in him every step of the way. We just sold our elderly parents home for significantly above asking and that was thanks to Mike's efforts. Mike understood our needs right from the get go, he presented a solid plan and followed through on it, checking in with updates as necessary. He took care of everything including cleaning up and staging the property in the best possible way. He is professional and caring, and takes a genuine interest in his clients. He really came through for us and I cannot thank him enough!
By: Alda M.
Mike has been a phenomenal realtor. He's surpassed my expectations. I would definitely recommend him. If you're looking for a hardworking, dedicated realtor willing to go above and beyond for you then Mike is the guy. Thanks Mike
By: Lee P
The Prior Group is nothing short of world class. They did a fantastic job strategizing the sale of my condo, the staging was incredible and I sold it for higher than I had expected in a mere 24 hours. They communicate quickly and are on top of all the details. Absolutely recommend them.

Hi, just a note to say thanks for all you have done for us throughout this process. As first time buyers, we had a lot of unanswered questions regarding the purchase of our home. Thank you for providing the answers to many of these and giving us informed advice on the homes that we visited!
