to sell their property
TORONTO, Feb. 3 /CNW Telbec/ - According to a survey of some 5,000
Canadians1, 32 per cent of homeowners would not automatically turn to a real

an alternative to sell their homes and avoid paying real estate

consumer preference. That's exactly what we are seeing at ComFree. Our

sales services to sell their home," Sullivan said.

their home intermediary-free as well as professional advice, legal and
