In February 2010, we decided to sell our home in Kingston and return to Nova Scotia to retire.
Having made the decision to sell our home, we were now faced with the prospect of finding a real estate agent to represent us. Past experience finding the right agent was not positive so this time, I was determined to find an agent that would represent us in a fair, professional and results-oriented fashion.
Rather than pick an agent as we had in the past based on recommendations from others or the number of sales, we decided to pick an agent after having an opportunity to observe this person first hand. We attended a number of open houses to observe how various agents represented their clients and presented their houses for sale. Initially, I was discouraged to find mediocre results from many of the agents we observed.
We then came across Krishan Nathan. Almost immediately I sensed a different approach. His manner was both professional and sincere. He was very well prepared to answer any questions we posed and pointed out positive features of the house he was showing and acknowledged some not so positive points as well.
Krishan had done his home work and had prepared financial models that would allow potential clients to understand what it would take to own this property.
Krishan became our agent within 5 days of our first meeting. Our home sold approximately one month later.
I would recommend Krishan Nathan as an above average realtor for the following reasons:
1. His ability to listen to what his clients are actually saying.
2. His ability to offer informed and objective feedback.
3. His ability to talk about the difficult things in a respectful but realistic way.
4. His ability to try different things…things are not always what they seem so the need to be flexible and agile is key.
5. Krishan made us feel like we were his very best customers. He had respect for our time and was never late for any appointment. He followed up with questions or issues that we raised and got back to us very quickly.
6. High degree of trust. Krishan looked after our best interest whether that involved discussions about correct pricing, showing our home or hosting an open house. I do not give letters of reference for average work.
In this case, both Charlotte and I feel we were very fortunate to have Krishan represent us on this most important business.
Best of luck Krishan. I know you will do very well in the real estate business.

As first time home owners my husband and I were unsure of the steps to take to sell our home. When we decided to sell, we were looking for an agent who listened, understood our needs, and would help us make a decision that we could be comfortable and happy with. Krishan was amazing; he helped us make critical decisions, always had our backs and worked extremely hard to meet our needs and deadlines. He kept us informed on a regular basis and always responded to calls and emails quickly. Krishan was such a pleasure to work with and handled the sale of our home beyond our expectations. We are so thankful we chose to work with Krishan Nathan and would highly recommend him to people when buying or selling a home. He truly was our ‘Sold Solution’.

I met Krishan in the fall of 2010 when I was one of three executors for an elderly friend and we were ready to list her Allum Ave home. He presented me with a folder of information on Krishan Nathan and Royal LePage. This package consisted of his Property Evaluation, his “plan” to sell, advertising on the internet on multiple sites, having a professional photographer do pictures for the websites and having a professional stager come in. I was very impressed with how thorough and professional he was.
The house sold within 3 days of the sign going up after multiple offers were presented. Even when the deal fell through, after the buyers job relocation was cancelled, Krishan remained positive, active and sold the house again very quickly.
Krishan had not only me to keep informed and contact for showings and signing of papers but two other executors that lived in other cities.
It was a pleasure dealing with Krishan and I would highly recommend him when either buying or selling.

Alex and Miranda are really enjoying their new home. Thanks for all the hard work getting them there.

We recently purchased our second home through Krishan Nathan. Not a doubt in our minds who we would call when we decided to upgrade our home several years after buying our first. Krishan is approachable, thorough and very adaptable. He actually listens, and wants to do his best for his clients. Thanks for TWO great buys Krishan! We'll be in touch when we're ready for our third :)

Chantale and I wanted to thank you for being so efficient, patient and helpful during what was a very intense experience of finding a house we can now call our home. You have gone above and beyond to help us to make one of the biggest and important decisions of our life. We appreciated your honesty and encouragement, and in the end you found us our first home which we absolutely love!! It is a great feeling to know that you had our best interests at heart. I would not think twice about recommending you to anyone I know who is interested in purchasing a home of their own. Once again a BIG Thank you!

As first time home buyers the whole process was very overwhelming, we feel Krishan made this experience a lot less stressful than it could have been. We met with Krishan and told him what we were looking for; within a day we started receiving listings that suited our needs. We were very eager to find a home but Krishan made us realize that we would know when we found the right home for us, and that we did. Krishan was very professional, friendly, and understood what we were looking for. He was available at all times to answer any questions we had. We will not hesitate to recommend him to our family and friends.

You can trust Krishan Nathan. This is the 2nd house I have bought in 13 months and his knowledge and contacts have ensured that I have had an excellent purchasing experience each time.

I would like to say how much I appreciate the work of Kristan Nathan. He sold my house in a very timely and efficient manner and did everything to look after all details necessary to expedite the sale. I would not hesitate to recommend him - and would use his services again for anything in the future.

Being a first time home buyer, you never know exactly what you’re getting yourself into. Krishan was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the whole process. He made buying my first home very easy and I plan on working with him in the future. I couldn't recommend a better real estate agent in Kingston.

Mark and I would like to thank you for your outstanding service in helping us with the purchase of our first home! We appreciate your immediate response and your ability to make the necessary viewings within our time frame. You listened and really heard our needs, making this an enjoyable experience.
— Mark Rundle & Cara Wilson
I would recommend Krishan to all of my family and friends. Krishan took the time to show me numerous houses before I found the right one that suited my needs. I have used Krishan for several purchases and will continue to use him for my future real estate purchases. He is a skilled professional.
— Michael Edgley
I recommend Krishan to others and would use him again in the future when either buying or selling. The challenging transition from one part of the country to another was made much easier as Krishan efficiently worked to market and sell our unique real estate assets.

Krishan Nathan was our agent for selling our four bedrooms, three bathrooms family house in the Winston Churchill area of Kingston during the summer of 2012. He demonstrated a very high level of professionalism and was central in achieving great and speedy results for us. From the first time he came to our place to discuss our selling price, to helping us seriously prepare our house for visitors, to managing the visits, he was a great help to us. But, mostly, what impressed us were his human relation and bargaining skills when the time came to react to an offer and arrive at a satisfactory closing. He has experience and a great feel for all the people involved. Good work, Krishan, and thank you so much!

Krishan was great at walking me through my first home buying experience. This process prompted many questions and Krishan was always there to answers them for me. I was so impressed with him that I recommended his services to my mother. He was able to find her a great house and was able to help me come to the decision to build a new home for myself. I would work with Krishan again and would recommend his services to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
