Top Class Service Amazing Leads From Website
Toronto real estate sales representative sells office towers $54,000,000
Toronto real estate sales representative sells office towers $54,000,000 (triple net leased investment) as a result of connections made through the information placed on ICIWorld. It started from a Want. Someone in the business saw this Want and knew about one for sale and contacted her. With due diligence and hard work over 8 months, she made a six-figure income in this one deal.
She has also sold several other smaller properties and businesses as a result of contacts made through ICIWorld.
$43M and easy financing
Two industrial buildings sold. Placed a Want to lease. Owner called. Retail leased.
Ramesh Shahani, Vice President, former Prudential Sadie Moranis Realty reported he had done four deals as a result of connections through ICIWorld. It was two industrial buildings and one retail lease.
The retail lease was 1,500 sq.ft. He placed a Want for the retail lease for Yonge St. and a property manager called him.
Placed a Want for development property. Sold $24M cash.
Bryon Armstrong, Sales Representative, Royal Lepage Your Community R.E. placed a want for development property. He received about 5 calls with the majority of land too small.
However one was good enough and he placed an offer and it sold for $24M cash. It was another broker on the service who saw his want and knew another broker who had some land.
He believes there is even a lot more potential for the industry than is currently being utilized. If it wasn’t for the one broker spotting the want on the service, there would have been no deal. The information helped this transaction. It is impossible to know about everything everywhere and the ideal situation would be to have it on this information service.
Many people prefer the confidentiality of marketing a property and ICIWorld is best suited to accomplish that.
I have done 2 deals recently through ICIWorld.!
Hello Gary, Just to inform you that I have done 2 deals recently through ICI! It is, no doubt, the best online site in Canada for real estate – especially commercial. I’ve already sold:
“Bargain Shop” – in an extremely remote and small Northern Ontario area through ICI – another realtor saw my posting and come up with her client’s offer that has now been accepted.
Retirement Home in Niagara Falls – I contacted the owner who posted his ad on ICI – but was not able to sell on its own – the buyer saw it through my website and the deal has gone through – that was an example of using ICI and redirecting info through another marketing source.
I also got in touch with numerous investors and realtors through your website and most likely there will be more deals as a direct, or indirect, result of it.
Real estate agent gets a buyer for a gas station, finds it on ICIWorld and sells it.

The ICIWorld connection played a small but vital role in making the connection to benefit everyone.
Placed “Want” for space. 8,000 sq. ft. leased!
Craig Bowden, Sales Representative, Mayhew Realty, works with tenants looking for space. He is what you would call a tenant rep. One of his clients was a furniture company looking for space. Craig placed his “Want” for space on ICIWorld. Another broker called him with 8,000 square feet of vacant space for lease. There was a lot of hard work by both brokers to put in place a ten-year lease. Result? Leased out space, a new business in town to serve the community, jobs for people, commerce conducted in the spirit of service and free enterprise and of course . . . income earned for a job well done. Many people do not have the time or knowledge to wherewithal to do all this themselves but with two licensed real estate brokers and ICIWorld, they accomplished their goal.
Called on a gas station. Sold him them a home.
Alam Qureshi, Sales Representative, Coldwell Banker, Pinnacle – He placed an ad for a gas station and received many calls. One call was a person who he developed a relationship with and ended up selling the person a home. This is another good example of how one meets other people to do deals.

Sold three trailer parks all exclusive.
Douglas Rielly, Broker, Empire Real Estate Service Ltd.
Has sold three trailer parks as a result of connections he made through ICIWorld. In each case, he got the buyer right by advertising on the service. They were all exclusive listings, not on a real estate board. They were all over $1,000,000. In his case, he did not get many calls but the calls that he got were serious. They averaged six months to one year to sell. Doug specializes in recreational income property, trailer parks, golf courses, marinas, mobile home parks, etc. He regrets not having gotten involved on the Internet and ICIWorld sooner, because he did not take it serious enough sooner. Now he is applying technology to his business and is profiting and serving his clients well.
