Quick answer to your question: I work exclusively with buyers and have had clients pay from the mid $400's per sq ft to $650 per sq ft for condo's in the area. It really depends on your price-band, the size of the unit, block, if parking is included and of course the finishes.
The following was just posted to Yelp by a grateful client who was very analytical in his search:
My wife and I just closed on our new home in November with Colm and really enjoyed working with him. What really makes him stand out is that he gives a rebate without sacrificing his level of service. We received a rebate of $7450 when we closed - it's a pretty hefty sum and very useful in furnishing our new home. :)
Before meeting Colm, we tried other bigger rebate realty companies like ZipRealty and Redfin. But we weren't very satisfied with their service. We got a lot of pressure from ZipRealty to make high offers and close quickly. And all Redfin would do is meet us at listed homes. They wouldn't drive us on the tours and didn't offer much in the way of advice at all.
Colm is in a class of his own - a full service broker with a rebate. He made us listings of properties he thought might be right for us and encouraged us to leave comments on them to help him better tune his sense of what we're looking for. When we found listings on our own, he reviewed them and offered his expert advice on them, pointing out both good and bad. On our tours, we also offered his advice about potential pitfalls and possibilities for improvements to boost the value of the home. We went on a lot of tours both during the weekdays and weekends, but never felt any pressure to buy.
We'd been looking for a while before meeting Colm and were getting tired of the hunt. Soon after meeting Colm, we were ready to "settle" for a condo we saw. But Colm actually encouraged us to keep looking for a few days before we jump into such a large decision. We later decided that condo would need more work than we were willing to put up with. He's more concerned about finding us a home that fits us than closing the deal and moving on. :)
When we did make offers, he evaluated the property and our feelings about it to suggest reasonable offer amounts. He never made us feel like it wasn't worth our time to make a low offer.
When we found our home, we wanted to ensure closing before Thanksgiving. Colm kept track of everything and stayed on top of it all to ensure a smooth, on-time closing within three weeks. Even after closing, he continues to demonstrate his commitment to his clients.
During closing, I selected a home warranty company. Colm suggested one, but I went with mine because of reviews that were slightly better. It turned out that my choice doesn't start the policy for a month. That's pretty significant when moving into a new home since the whole point was to cover any potential problems that might arise. Colm's out there fighting on our behalf to get the waiting period waived or get a refund so we could sign up with another warranty company.
I'm sure there're a bunch of realtors out there that provide excellent service. And there're a bunch that provide commission rebates. But I think we've been really lucky in finding Colm and getting both.
