Our real estate agent provided exceptional assistance during the process of selling my mother-in-law’s property through an estate sale. As an Estate Trustee, dealing with probate in court can be complex but she was knowledgeable about the procedures and handled everything smoothly. Her empathetic and sensitive approach to our needs during this emotional time is commendable. The fact that she sold the house within 3 weeks is impressive and her regular communication with keeping us informed throughout the process was highly appreciated. Overall, she did a fantastic job as our real estate agent. Thank you Catherine! Jamie

I was always curious about new built homes or as Catherine would say it pre-construction projects. After discussing a few investment options with my family, we decided to purchase a pre-construction home in Kitchener. I was very happy with Catherine’s approach. She met with us and explained everything, the entire process including the potential rate of return on our property in a few years. It was a lot of information and I knew Catherine had the experience. I would highly recommend her.

I used Catherine to purchase a preconstruction condo in Mississauga. I didn’t know how to buy one or what was required. Catherine was quite knowledgeable and explained it to me in simple and easy to understand words. She was very patient with me and never tried to push me in purchasing one. I finally purchased one this year and I am so happy I did thanks to Catherine because she really knows her stuff.

Our pre-construction property recently closed and my husband and I decided to rent it out. We had very little knowledge on rentals but our real estate agent explained the process very well in layman’s terms. She was also very thorough in screening tenants and provided us with documents for each tenant interested in our property. She definitely had our best interests at heart throughout the process. Thanks Catherine!!
