The spacious L’Île-Bizard house belonging to Guy Lafleur’s widow has been on the market since the end of July.

“Guy Lafleur is a Quebec giant. I find it unfortunate that no one has yet started a fire and doesn’t feel they have an obligation to sustainability,” he continues.

Over the summer, Le Journal revealed that the Blond Demon home was offered for sale for $2,499,000.

Although the plantation-style home, located on Place du Moulin, in Montreal’s L’Île-Bizard, has caused a stir, there has reportedly been no interest in it yet.

“We had a couple from Switzerland who expressed interest in buying a cottage. They ended up turning to Tremblant,” explains Ms. St-Laurent.

Back to normal

For this reason, the broker plans to discuss with the family soon to determine a new strategy.

“After two years of madness, we are returning to a slightly more normal market. Did we fall there? We don’t have all the answers, admits the experienced broker. But it is a spectacular, unique place. It takes someone who falls in love with the house. »

Guy Lafleur’s widow Lise hoped the sale would go through quickly so she could continue her grieving, she who currently feels isolated from her family, alone in this spacious mansion.

The sale of this property is also a very special mandate for the real estate agent and her team.

“We do our work with compassion and respect for the passing of the Lafleur family. Grieving in public is not easy, ”supposes Julie St-Laurent.
