Ray and I don't know where to begin to thank you for all your hard work and dedication in listing and selling our house (in 3 days). This was all very new to us, after living in our house for 32 years. We had concerns and never once did you make us feel uncomfortable. You worked for us 100% plus.
We also want to thank Jolie for all her help - the phone calls to Florida, the faxes, making arrangements for the property survey. We have recommended you to friends and will do so for years to come. When the day comes to sell our new home in Barrie, we hope you will still be selling homes, as you will be our agent.
All the best in the future as you are truly a very dedicated and sincere person. Thanks again for everything.
Ray & Doreen
Thank you very much for handling the sale of our house so efficiently and professionally.
We appreciated your honesty, energy, expertise in rural properties and also your promptness in presenting our house to all the agents and placing attractive colorful advertisements in the local papers. Because of this, we received and accepted an offer within two weeks.
We are very pleased with the offer and, especially, with the proficiency of both you and your office staff. What could have been a very stressful time turned out to be an extremely easy endeavour.
Thank you again,
Jim & Bernice
I am writing to let you know that my wife and I were very satisfied with your services as our real estate agent selling our home. You were very professional in all your undertakings and I was impressed by your honesty and integrity.
We did not know a real estate agent when we had decided to sell our home. We interviewed four agents and decided after careful considerations to list with you. As it turned out, you were the right choice. You marketed our home well and because of it we sold quickly at a good price.
I can recommend your services without hesitation.
