I am pleased to attach my short testimonial. I so appreciate your patience and kindness throughout this long process in finding me a new home, somehow this short testimonial doesn't seem good enough. My daughter, Karen, thinks you are pretty terrific too.
I met Yvonne, almost 2 years ago, while I was helping a friend find a Condo after just selling their home. During this time, my friend and I decided it would be great to live in the same building during our golden years. Since then, Yvonne has sent me many suitable listings and I called Yvonne several times, sometimes on short notice, for an appointment to view a Condo. She was extremely patient and helpful throughout our search, taking the time to understand our changing needs. After finding a suitable Condo for me, she was very helpful in the price negotiations and recommended someone to assist in my financial needs as well as sell my then current home. I have dealt with several real estate agents throughout my lifetime and I am happy to say that it was a pleasure dealing with Yvonne and I wouldn’t hesitate recommending her to others looking for a great real estate agent.
Working with Yvonne was both pleasurable and profitable.
Her pitch to win representation was smart, succinct and full of the passion I was looking for in an agent. Her diligence and dedication to pricing and showing made an incredible difference in a tough market resulting in getting 98% of asking price in just four days. As important, her caring approach made the personally difficult circumstances of selling my home much less difficult. The process was professional and seamless.
Without question I will work with Yvonne again on my next real estate transaction.
We interviewed several real estate agents but chose to work with Yvonne, who came to us highly recommended. We were first time home buyers and Yvonne always took the time to answer our numerous questions and find out all the information we requested on properties and neighbourhoods. She has an incredible energy and actually made the process fun for us! Yvonne would often take us to view properties after we only gave her very short notice of our interest; she always made time for us and helped us in any way we requested. We ended up winning a bidding war on our dream home without having to go over our budget – we were very comfortable throughout the whole process and are happy to have worked with her. We would recommend Yvonne to anyone!

Our search for our first home didn't start out well -- we ended up firing our first realtor midway through the hunt because she was pushy and unprofessional. That's when a friend recommended we meet with Yvonne. Her knowledge and personality were immediately apparent, and we knew we were in good hands. We never felt pressured to bid, but Yvonne had a great sense of what we were looking for; she steered us away from money pits and added value to our visits by advising us on a home's potential for renovations and rental units based on her own personal experience. She's also simply a good person and fun to spend time with as you're driving around looking at places -- which doesn't hurt! We have already connected her with friends, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to others looking for a great realtor.

Selling my mother's annex family home after thirty years was an emotional challenge for our family. I needed a trusted professional who would ensure we got the attention, advice and expertise required to ensure a smooth sale. Yvonne spent time with me to make sure I understood exactly what was happening during the entire process, worked tirelessly behind the scenes, and helped us negotiate a sale price that exceeded all of our expectations. I look forward to working with her again.
We met Yvonne while we were viewing a home. She was selling the home for the owner. We were looking for recommendations regarding the market area and being so approachable we began talking. She was very encouraging and made us feel comfortable answering the many questions we had. Her extensive knowledge and genuine enthusiasm came through immediately. We ended up calling her to help us purchase our home in Toronto and would've looked her up regardless to befriend. In the end, we found a friend and a very effective real estate agent. Working with her was informative and fun and we bought the house that we had envisioned in a short time despite the tough economic timing!

As we began pouring over MLS in search of our first home, we visited dozens of open houses and developed relationships with other real estate agents interested in offering up their services. After looking for almost a year, we met Yvonne by chance at an open house - she was the selling agent and we were still searching for our dream home.
My husband and I left that open house knowing that Yvonne was the agent we wanted to work for us. Not only is she knowledgeable and competent, but personable and easy to talk to. Her hard work, flexibility and persistence was second to none. After 3 years, she continues to check in on us, see how we are doing, and send us listings in our immediate neighbourhood. She made the purchase of our first home a wonderful experience!

It was a great reassurance to know that Yvonne took the time to understand our particular needs, and that she went above and beyond to achieve them. She was very patient throughout our search and is definitely a results-oriented person.
