We thank your firm for working with us throughout the process of our home purchase.
It's been a great pleasure working with Luc, he made everything seem so easy, seamless and professional.

The search effort was minimal. The negotiation process was carried through tactfully and successfully. Luc knew how to present our offer. He kept us informed at every step of the process.

The closing services were very good. Luc kept very close contact by email, everything was done on time.

We are very satisfied with the experience, and still processing what just happened in the past few days.

A warm thank you on behalf of Norm and myself,

Brindusa & Norm

As far as Bob and I are concerned, you and your team all earn top marks for the leadership you gave in the selling process. We were pleased with your assessment of how to price our house, the ongoing communication with you and your office staff, the quick notification of feedback from potential buyers, and the photos taken of the property. We also appreciated your firm approach during the negotiation process. The entire procedure was handled in a professional manner. Thank you!

Bob & Dawn

We are grateful to have you and your team help us sell our house.

We have been visiting your website for a few years. Your listings come and go much faster than others, because Joan knows the housing market very well. The staging and photography were excellent and made the house look bright & neat.

We would like to say "Thank You" to Victoria. She made a small change to our basement to help it look more open during her open house for us. We have a special "Thank You" for Luc as well. He was very knowledgeable about the house and it was very helpful.

We will recommend you and your team to our friends.

We could not have asked for better service and representation on the sale of our home. We are first-time sellers and had never before worked with a realtor, so choosing the top team in the area was an obvious choice for us and one we are extremely happy we made.

The market evaluation was clearly explained to us and made determining the sale price of our home very simple. The staging to our home was beautifully done and we feel made a huge impact, especially in the photos. We received 3 offers on our home during the same day, and Victoria did a fantastic job of explaining the pros and cons of each as well as negotiating with the various agents. In the end we feel we got a fair price for our home and terms that were ideal.
