We always feel comfortable with your advice. Thank you”

Ronnie & Sylvianne Young
"Since the sale of our house, Ronnie & I have not stopped talking about the "Top Notch" service you provided us, always with a beautiful smile and always punctual. We admit to not having met an agent as dedicated as you. From the first day you came to our home, met with Ronnie, to the next day when I met you, we both felt the same instant connection. We appreciated your availability whenever we needed you to answer a question or settle a concern. Most of all, staging our house to make it more attractive for potential buyers was the most amazing strategy ever. We both loved our house after de-cluttering it as it looked brighter and bigger and much more inviting. Thanks Cathy for the loan of your live plant, it too made this house a perfect " buying target" We would recommend you ( and already have) to anyone out there looking at buying or selling a home"

Judy Bailey from Fenelon Falls
"Wonderful!!!!!, Selling my house was a "challenge" on many levels and emotional. You handled everything very professionally right from the 1st interview. You were a knowledgeable realtor and part counselor and became a friend very quickly. You were honest and yet tactful in suggesting a selling price as well as when it was time to reduce or try another approach. Your staging and lending your "personal effects" were above and beyond as well as the many hang-in theres!! I appreciate your complimenting me on how I was helping as I really was trying to do what needed to be done. You remained positive with any curve that came our way and never showed signs of giving up -- even when I was ready to. Maureen was also always friendly, kind and helpful. Thank you two for the excitment and support. Good luck to you and as you know I have recommended you far and wide already!!! Thank you again."
John Demspey & Stephanie Pick
"Cathy literally went the extra mile, putting on bugspray & hiking through the bush with us viewing properties. She rearranged her schedule to accomodate us more than once, and went into the office on a gorgeous Sunday afternoon to put together our offer so that she'd be able to present it first thing Monday morning. She dug around to find answers to difficult & important questions, and searched out tradespeople & services for us. All with a smile"
