I am reading on the TD site that they have such a long list of no fee ETFs!

Be sure to check that the ETFs you already hold are on the list. If they aren't, then ask your advisor how he's going to handle them. If he wants to replace them, because they're in an IRA and you won't have tax consequences, be sure you are comfortable with the replacement. If he's not going to replace them, be sure you understand how much it's going to cost to trade.

Check the expense ratios on the ETFs. Only a small portion of their ETFs have low expense ratios. And, as far as I can tell, they don't have index ETFs, like the S&P 500 or the Russell 2000. They do appear to have some 'semi-managed' ETFs like 'Value 500', 'Growth 500' and 'Large Cap' with low expense ratios. But, as an example, they used to have IVV, which is iShares S&P 500 index, but that was taken off the list of their fee-free ETFs.
