“Bruce, you did a brilliant job in assisting us in the sale of our home. Thanks to your detailed market review, recommended timing for listing, and pricing strategy we sold for almost exactly what we expected in less than a week. Your marketing program was equally impressive. The pre-listing home inspection ensured no surprises and a fast firming of our sale and the use of a home staging expert ensured that our home had a broad and current market appeal – in fact we received nothing but compliments on its presentation. The marketing brochure presented our home and neighbourhood beautifully and your hands-on promotion and stimulation of demand proved exceedingly effective in generating such a quick sale in a deteriorating market. In fact, our home sold much more quickly and at a better value than an identical model listed on our street that had a larger lot, several unique upgrades and a finished basement. You are in a class of your own. The real estate board should create a special designation such as Real Estate Consultant to describe the full breadth and professionalism of your service. We would be pleased to recommend you to others.”

SALE & PURCHASE: Freehold Detached / Freehold Townhouse with Condo Elements
“We found your services to be very professional and you provided a comprehensive level of service to us at all times. You were extremely knowledgeable and were able to keep us well informed. We found you attentive to our needs and extremely timely in your response to any and all requests we made of you. You, personally, went the “extra mile” many times to satisfy us. The purchase and sale negotiations were handled by you extremely efficiently and effectively while at the same time reducing our stress level to a minimum. Overall, it was a pleasure working with you, Bruce. We felt very much at ease in being able to rely on your work. We have already recommended your services to others and would have no hesitation in doing so again in the future.”
Paul & Chris Oliver, Markham-Unionville
SALE: Freehold Detached
“You asked us if the sale of our home met our expectations. It did not — it exceeded them! We did what you recommended to properly prepare our home for going to market, you arranged for a Realtors’ open house, and we sold that same day for $20,000 over asking. What we liked about your service was your great advice on the upfront preparation of our home, putting the right price on the listing to encourage an offer, performing an upfront home inspection to eliminate a potential condition on the sale, and placing a warranty on our home’s systems and appliances to minimize risk to the new homeowner. As you said, “Everyone wants to make a great sale, but few of us are willing to do the preparation to make that sale great”. Would we use you again? In a heartbeat.”
Larry & Linda Chester, Markham-Unionville
SALE: Freehold Detached
“You took the time to get to know our family and neighbourhood which was not only thoughtful but it helped properly place our home on the market. Throughout the sale process you demonstrated your market knowledge and took the time to explain and guide us every step of the way. Your creativity and suggestions on how best to prepare our parent’s home for sale and your ability to introduce us to home service providers who could help us in that preparation were invaluable. During the course of the sale we had positive comments about your professionalism from our neighbours and from our own lawyer who was amazed at your level of commitment right up to the day of closing. Thank you for a job well done in a very timely manner – we’re forever grateful.”
Jamie & Judy Butler, Toronto
SALE: Condominium Apartment
“We wanted to write a short note to thank you for all your help with the sale of our first home. Many people find real estate transactions a tiresome and cumbersome process - but ours was fantastic, due largely to you. We were able to get top dollar (the best sale price our condominium building has ever seen - and we're only on the 5th floor!) and in a very short period of time. We attribute our success to your efforts. From pricing us properly to marketing our home perfectly, you took care of every detail we could think of (and a few we hadn't). Your excellence and professionalism are compounded by your energy and good nature. We very much enjoyed working with you and would eagerly recommend your services to anyone. Great results and great attitude made it great to work with you!”

SALE & PUCHASE: Freehold Link / Freehold Detached
“You were an invaluable resource and provided exceptional service in both purchasing and selling our homes. We found you to be hard working, personable and professional, and appreciated your follow-up with us after each purchase/sale was finished to ensure our complete satisfaction. Your home marketing buyer incentives and home purchasing peace-of-mind coverages were wonderful bonuses to your service. We have had a positive experience utilizing the Home Buyers Protection Plan to assist with unforeseen issues that arose after our home purchase was complete. We highly recommend you to others for all of their Real Estate needs.”
Rob & Debbie Carlyle, Markham-Unionville
SALE & PURCHASE: Freehold Detached / Condominium Townhouse
“Everyone commented positively on the quality of your professional marketing materials, the neighbourhood open houses, and the home warming party you hosted on our behalf in our new residence - great marketing plan. Our working relationship was open and forthright - the right decisions were made at the right time. You provided us with all of the relevant market comparables for the proper positioning our home in the marketplace and we were glad you were on our side when negotiating price. This was done well. Having an overlap between the sale closing and that of our purchase was great as it made for an orderly move. Susan and I thought the whole process went extremely well and would recommend your services to sellers and buyers.”
Wayne & Susan Fisher, Mississauga
PURCHASE: Condominium Apartment
“Buying a home should be an exciting life event. No doubt, there is a great deal to know and plenty of issues can arise to complicate the home buying process. Your no-nonsense, professional approach to real estate provided us with incomparable personal service and a smooth transition into home ownership. You are highly knowledgeable about the real estate market. Additionally, your high level of personal service and commitment made us feel as if we were dealing with a member of the family. You met all of our home buying needs promptly by offering up a diverse network of professionals and packages, which made house hunting, decision making, the home inspection, financing and legal process a breeze. Moreover, we were very impressed when you were able to secure us a purchase price below asking and before the vendor was officially accepting offers in a situation where multiple offers were almost certain. We have and will continue to refer you to all of our family and friends for their home buying needs.”
Patrick Fisher, Toronto
SALE & PURCHASE: Condominium Townhouse / Freehold Detached
“I was thrilled with the sale price of my townhouse – highest price ever paid in the complex – and was also pleased with the purchase price we were able to negotiate for my new home. I found your home sale and purchase programs, marketing materials, attention to every detail and follow-up to be outstanding. I particularly appreciated your taking the time to fully understand my specific needs, your management of the sale and purchase processes in a manner that minimized the disruption of my personal life, and that you kept me informed of the local market conditions and our progress on an on-going basis. The professionalism and ease of your collaborative approach made our working relationship an enjoyable learning experience. I will be recommending your exemplary real estate services to all I know.”
Sue Dickens, Stouffville / Mount Albert
SALE: Freehold Detached
“Without hesitation, we'd recommend your real estate services. You addressed our every concern and guided us through the step-by-step process of preparing our home for sale. We appreciated the benefits of your arranging and paying for a pre-listing home inspection, the insurance backed warranty on our major appliances and home systems and the home stager. We also appreciated yout referrals to friendly and competent handyman and legal services.
Your business experience was best exemplified by the superior quality of your marketing material with its extremely detailed description of our home and property. The fact that we sold our home in just a few days at what we considered to be the right price and you were able to negotiate our closing to dovetailed exactly with the closing of the home we purchased in Kingston was simply the icing on the cake.”
Edgar & Dorothy Mills, Unionville
SALE: Freehold Detached
“You have indeed looked after our best interests in the sale of our home in a most sincere and professional way. Working with you Bruce was a distinct pleasure to be sure. Having had little recent experience in such an indertaking, we especially apprecaited your sage advice and methodical approach to selling the place we have called home for over 50 years now. We would be most pleased to provide a personal recommendation to anyone considering the use of your services.”
Glen & Charmion Henderson, Newmarket
PURCHASE: Freehold Detached
“We wanted to take a moment to thank you for helping us with our property search. Over the past number of years we have been involved with several real estate agents and while each has treated us well, we were most impressed with your approach. Throughout our search we perceived that you were not trying to consummate a deal simply to get on to the next client but that you genuinely had our interests in mind, researching each home we looked at and offering useful information that helped us in selecting the home we eventually purchased.
While you have an impressive list of supporting tools and services that you use to promote your business and which brought you to our attention, at the end of the day it wasn't the tools but rather the man behind the tools that we apprecaited the most.”
Dan & Janna Johnstone, Richmond Hill
