About Matt Goyer

I love condos, lofts, floating homes, new construction and mid-century moderns so much so that since starting this blog in 2006 I've written over 2,000 blog posts about them!

For years I resisted becoming a real estate agent preferring to be a marketing executive at Redfin but after leaving Redfin (after seven years!) I caved in the spring of 2014 and became a broker. So if you need help finding that "Urbnlivn-style" place or selling your home email me at, I'd be happy to help you.

Prior to Urbnlivn and Redfin, I worked at Microsoft after graduating from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Mathematics with a major in computer science.

    Here's the 'weak' part I discovered after seeing this unit.

    #1 It's not a penthouse. It's on the 4th floor of 7 floors. It's a middle floor at best, not an 'upper floor' as claimed in the listing.

    #2 It's not 2000 sq ft as listed – it's only 1657.

    #3 This would be the most expensive per square foot ever sold in the Banner Building, even at the new reduced price, despite the fact we are in a huge slump.

    I think the market price is $800k max given the Banner Building is coming up on 20 years old and has limited amenities compared to new condo's.
