Mario found us a wonderful, 160-year-old historical home in downtown Oakville in 2006, and 10 years later helped us again – this time with the purchase of a Bronte Harbour townhome adjacent to the lake and walking trail. He’s a very hands-on agent, meaning he doesn’t off-load the more tedious chores on junior agents - as so many ‘big-time’ realtors do. It’s a tactic that can actually hurt the seller – as one of our Bronte neighbours, sadly, has learned: Six months on the market and still no offers. Mario Basta sold our olde Oakville home in FOUR days – for a few thousand less than list price. Best of all, he was able to knock $40,000 off the list of our new home in Bronte. Mario invests a lot of energy and passion in his work. He was constantly on the phone to us, with updates, options, or just to say ‘Hi.’ He dropped by a few times, too. And, he has excellent contacts in the reno, electrical, plumbing, inspection and appliance repair fields, none of whom price gouge. We know, because we have used several of his referrals and were completely satisfied. In fact, we still call Mario when something breaks down – knowing he’ll give us a lead on the perfect Mr. Fix-it.

I am a professional home stager and I work with a lot of real estate agents, but when I met Mario Basta I chose him to sell my house, because I recognized that he is an exceptional agent. We employed him to sell our home in Oakville last year, when the market was really bad for sellers and there were many houses on sale in our area. We spoke with Mario and then met with him at our home. He spent hours answering our questions, providing objective data regarding how many homes he sells, how long listings typically stay on the market, providing tons of information about the area, and what we could expect from our situation at that time. We were concerned that our house, which was located in a neighbourhood with many similar homes, would be hard to sell. Mario made the process incredibly easy and took extra steps many other Realtors don't (but should), like having professionals come, having professional photographs taken, and a lot more. When we saw our listing we were blown away. His hard work and knowledge of what it takes to sell a home really paid off - our listing looked amazing and knocked out the competition. The second buyer that saw the property put in an offer. We accepted the offer and Mario, who was incredibly honest, friendly and helpful, walked us through every step of the closing process. It couldn't have been a more pleasant experience. We were very thankful for that, and we gave him our next property to sell. He did a very good job again and we got an offer on the first day it was on the market for the full asking price. Really what more can you ask for from a real estate agent? I've recommended Mario Basta to everyone I know. He's a true professional and a genuinely nice guy. I realize it won't always be this easy to sell your home, but I think you'd be hard-pressed to find a better Realtor.

In our search for the perfect investment property we wanted a trained and knowledgeable Realtor. We noticed how many executive rentals Mario has been doing the last few years in our neighborhood. After speaking with Mario he began his search, we bombarded him with so many listings and questions. He gave his honest opinion about them all but wasn’t 100% confident for us buying any of them. Within no time Mario found the perfect opportunity that he knew would be home run. We are so grateful!

There is no more knowledgeable agent in Oakville than Mario Basta. Having lived and worked in Westmount and Bronte Creek, his expertise in this area is unparalleled. Not only will Mario work tirelessly to help purchase or sell your home, he can handle any obstacles that are thrown in front of him along the way. I would recommend Mario for anyone looking in Oakville.

Mario looking forward for many more years in Real Estate with you.

We had been contemplating moving to Oakville from Toronto for about a year. Although we were not actively searching, we called the Glen Abbey Branch to view a home we had seen on MLS. We did not have a buying agent at the time. We had met several other agents during the past months but we instantly warmed to Mario and asked him to be our buyer agent. What we like about him was the fact that he wasn’t pushy and gave us all the information for us to make an informed decision. Mario not only would send us listings, but would include a little personal opinion of the location and the property. He is very experienced and has a personal touch that few agents whom we had met have. Within 2 weeks of asking Mario to be our agent, we bought a place thanks to his hard work. We are keen more than ever to move to Oakville and we love the area we will be located. Thank you Mario,

Mario has the professional and personal qualities that made me extremely comfortable and confident as I searched for my first home. He was very helpful and knowledgeable throughout the whole process. Mario went well beyond his role as my agent as he provided me guidance and assistance with the move. I was extremely happy with Mario as my agent and would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!

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!
