The following testimonials were written by just some of my happy sellers and buyers. They have all been kind enough to
give me permission to show you their correspondence. Their letters and words are very gratifying. It seems that my
down-to-earth and honest approach has earned me many friends - I think that's fantastic!

When we were initially in the market for our first home, we were planning to buy a new construction townhouse and we were not even going to use a realtor. Sam was recommended to us by two people we trust very much, so we thought we would meet with her and see if we thought it was even necessary to go with a realtor. Within a few minutes of meeting Sam, we knew we definitely wanted to work with her. Her professionalism, caring nature and sense of humour immediately drew us in. In the months that came, she took us to many properties, sincerely exploring each place with us, always helping us weigh the pros and cons, and never pressuring us to make a purchase. She always responded to texts, calls and emails ridiculously quickly, and never made us feel like we were wasting her time with our seemingly impossible quest to find the perfect home for us. She made appointments to take us to every place we even mentioned we might be interested in, and always offered to arrange return visits if we were still unsure, never making us feel like we were buyers on a budget who were wasting her time (which we worried we were!) She didn't even flinch when, after looking at townhouse after townhouse, we decided that maybe we wanted to buy a house instead. We shifted our focus and Sam offered lots of advice and support. We looked forward to our almost weekly meetings with Sam not just to look at houses, but to visit and laugh with her too. Once we were settled in the new house Sam helped us find, we joked that we should pretend that we didn't like it anymore and needed a new one because we missed hanging out with her on a regular basis! We always felt like she made our best interests her priority and would never have allowed us to buy something that wasn't a perfect fit for us. We have already recommended Sam to everyone we know who is looking to buy or sell, and will definitely be using her again when it comes time for us to move to our next house.

Sam was instrumental in guiding us through both the sale of our home and purchase of our new house. Right from the first meeting and discussion of upgrade renovations, she gave us great advice as to what to do (and not do) to get the most out of our investment. She handled the photo's and listing herself which led to multiple offers within days of the listing going live - and a quick and easy sale of our home. Her professionalism guided us through the stressful situation of selling our "starter home". Her research found our dream home, unlisted, in our desired neighbourhood. This allowed us to make a quick and successful offer. Family members have also used her services, and we will use her to sell this home too...one day!

When we started the process of selling our townhouse and looking for a new house, we were fairly sceptical of real estate agents. We viewed this group of people as nice as most people are, but a bit of a necessary evil. Someone who knows the ropes of the housing business, but generally isn't necessary as in these times the houses just sell themselves. Now we can say we have changed our tune. Sam stepped up for us and advised in situations in our transaction as if it were her own house on the line. She was professional yet firm when needed. Now you might say "That's her job!" and you'd be correct, however she went beyond what we'd expect at all times. Our townhouse took extra time to sell since we lived in an area where everything was slow. This gave us extra time to think about the new house, change our minds, think again, and over again. Sam always took our call, looking at different properties while remaining upbeat and professional. All through the process Sam was personable and honest, funny and straightforward.
Not only is she our choice for a real estate agent, we are proud to say she is our friend. We will (and have) recommend her to anyone and will be calling her for all our future real estate needs.

Our entire experience working with Sam was delightful from start to finish. Even after we moved and settled into our new home she helped us by communicating with the developer regarding an issue that came up. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!
Sam, I want to thank you for helping me purchase my new home. I was very impressed by your attention to detail and you were a true professional at all times. You were always there to answer my calls and my many questions that I had. Often you were the voice of reason and helped me make the right decisions. It was a joy dealing with you and you had an impressive knowledge of the market and area. You truly have the client's best interest in mind at all times. I would HIGHLY recommend you to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home.
We contacted Sam when we were ready to sell our house and downsize to an apartment in another neighbourhood. Sam's professionalism, attention to detail and work ethic made it a smooth transition. She was on top of everything, all the time. She responded to our messages immediately and always made herself available for us. The best way I can describe it is like this - the manner in which Sam conducted herself and the sale and purchase of our homes made it seem like she felt privileged to have us as clients (which is funny because by the end of it, we felt like we were privileged to have her!). We can't thank her enough for all her efforts and hard work. We would most definitely use her again in the future and would recommend her to anyone.
Sam was a professional, knowledgeable and patient as we went through both the sale and purchase of our properties. We will not hesitate to recommend her to our friends!
Worked with Sam a number of times and she went above and beyond what you would expect in the sale and purchase of our houses. Would use her again and have recommended her to friends and colleagues.

You are the best, most prefessional Realtor we've ever dealt with, you're added knowledge of the law makes you more trustworthy than others who we worked with that have no clue. Thank you for making the experience of selling and buying a great time. Laughs and keeping the two of us FOCUSED.
