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.” tab_id=”1450384110559-1″][/testimonial][testimonial title=”Testimonial” id=”1422396028091-0-8″ name=”Alex & Paul ” quote=”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.” tab_id=”1450384110935-8″][/testimonial][/testimonial_slider][divider line_type=”No Line” custom_height=”25″]
