Testimonals

Hello!  I am providing below a few testimonial letters that I have received

from my clients whom I have had the privilege to assist

over the past 30 years with their real estate needs 

============================================================

My wife an I have been dealing with Belle Jean for many years. As far as we are concerned she is the best realtor in the business.  Belle is always on top of what’s happening in the market. She uses this knowledge with her years of experience to advise and strategize and deliver the best in what you are looking for. In fact she has surpassed our expectations on many occasions.She understands that a satisfied customer is a return customer and manages to be professional even though you feel like you are chatting with a close friend.  We have bought and sold through Belle. She knows how to make things happen.Whenever we have any real estate needs, we just “ring for Belle”.  Raymond and Andrea B.

 

We were extremely satisfied customers of Belle, when in 2007, she helped us sell our town house in Oakville. After this, she guided us to the house of our dreams in Mississauga, negotiating on our behalf a very good price! This year (2013) we decided to sell this home to friends of ours. We thought that this would be simple enough and therefore wouldn’t need the advice or help from a professional. How wrong we were!!! It didn’t take us long to find out that we were in over our heads. We turned to our expert in real estate: Belle Jean. She immediately jumped into action and navigated us through the minefield of legal stuff and the paperwork that goes with it. She also represented us extremely well in determining the market value of our home etc. We were absolutely delighted with the price that she negotiated for us! It was far beyond what we expected!!  We therefore highly recommend Belle Jean. A true professional in her field!  Steve, Rosalyn & Mary T.

 

I am writing to express my more than complete satisfaction with Belle Jean as a realtor. Belle managed to sell my house at 98.42% of my asking price within 1 day after listing. I do not know if we broke the record, but this was quite an achievement. Belle guided me through the entire process as thought I was her only client. Her knowledge, long experience, professionalism, and award winning achievements in the real estate business are assets on which you can reply.  Belle promptly appraised my house and diligently studied the real estate market around my area and together we established a selling price which was more than satisfactory to me and met my goal of selling the house within a certain time frame.  I also appreciate Belle’s knowledge of all the documents required. She clearly explained the contents of the offer presented by the opposite party and added other documents when required.  When it came to negotiation with the opposite party, I marveled at Belle’s experience and negotiation skills. She controlled the process. She constantly looks after the interest of her client and gives her client excellent guidance and advice.  In closing I would say that if Belle Jean represents you in your real estate transaction, whether selling or buying, you get the complete package. Kim T.

 

Selling a home can be a very stressful process but you made my experience as stress-free as possible. Thank you for your understanding and respecting my wishes, and your professionalism and sound advice. I am glad to know that in you I have found not only a valued realtor but a friend as well.  Renata T.

 

We would like to thank you for all your great services in helping us purchase our new house, and in the sale of our old house.  This is the third time we have purchased a new house, and the second time we have sold our old house in the past 12 years. There were a number of agents we had been working with. Among them, there is no doubt that the services you provided to us are the best of all.  It was very comfortable working with you. You are soft spoken, you listen and respect our thoughts. This made the communication between you and us very open and efficient, and the process of buying / selling much less stressful. We not only liked your great work, we also like your great personality.  We were very impressed by the efficiency, the quality of work, the knowledge, experience and the passion you put into every step of the buying and selling process.  As we all know, it costs big money if a house is over-priced or under-priced. When we were preparing our house for sale, your knowledge and detailed marketing analysis helped us arrive at the right price recommendation. It was confirmed that the listing price you recommended was just the right listing price.  Your great taste, experience and knowledge in staging the house made such a big difference. After the staging was completed, we loved the house so much ourselves, and even felt that we did not want to move.  The high-end colour feature sheets you designed and the multimedia photos you arranged to be taken were amazing. They captured the best views and features of the house.  All of your efforts and great work made such a big difference. Our house was a hot hit on the market, and tons of showing requests came in minutes after you put the listing on-line. Our house was sold the second day on the market for over 99% of asking price. This goal would not have been achieved without your great work.  We all know that little kids have great instincts when judging people around them. My little one, who is 5 years old, told me a few times that he liked you. I asked him if he could tell me why, and he told me that he liked nice people, and Belle was a nice person. This spoke all the truth through a little one’s voice.  I would refer you to any of my friends without any hesitation. Belle, you are the best!  Jing K.

 

We approached Ms. Jean to sell our house in the midst of a very uncertain real estate market.  During the process of listing the property she listened to our input and provided excellent professional insight that helped us make the decisions needed by explaining the difficulties of setting a price for the property in the existing marketplace.  She did an excellent job marketing the property. She immediately had several open houses and kept us informed as to the progress, providing feedback from potential buyers and other agents.  When it became evident that we needed to change our approach to the marketplace, she gave us suggestions that would lead to a sale at a price that we would find acceptable. Her input was based on solid market research into recent activity in our local area. She discussed this research with us and helped come up with a new approach.  We did as she suggested and the result of our and her efforts was that our house sold immediately at a price above asking with no difficulties.  It is our belief that in this market it is necessary to select an experienced and successful real estate agent, such as Ms. Jean, and follow his or her advice, to be successful.  Hoping that this testament helps individuals who are considering partnering with Belle Jean in future real estate transactions.  John S.

 

This letter is intended to serve as a testimonial for the amazing service Belle Jean provides as a realtor as well as to recommend her to anyone considering buying or selling a home.  My wife and I were struck by the professionalism that Belle exhibited throughout the process of simultaneously buying a new home while selling our existing residence. The market research Belle conducted, and the quality advice she provided, helped us to find a new home we loved, as well as to secure it at a price that was more than fair.  Of even more importance to us was Belle’s empathy, compassion, and advice regarding the sale of our existing home. For anyone planning to sell their home, I can say categorically that you want a realtor like Belle! She understood the challenges associated with staging, pricing, preparing, and showing a home, and her freely shared expertise helped us to sell our home for a fair price in only 6 days in a market where the average house takes 40 to 60 days to sell!!  Belle has an amazing personality, and being around her makes what can be a grueling process enjoyable. She is one of those few people who I have met who genuinely loves to help people, and it shines through in everything she does.  I can’t imagine that you could find a better realtor than Belle to represent you, and therefore it is my pleasure to write this testimonial and recommendation. I hope you decide to choose Belle – you will not regret it!  Matt S.

 

Sean and I wish to sincerely thank you for all of your exceptional real estate assistance over the last 4 years. Whether it was the sale of our small town home or the more recent sale of our detached executive home, your experience, professionalism, and attention to detail were second to none and we would highly recommend your services to others who require a qualified and experienced realtor whom they can trust.  We wish you continue success in the real estate business and also in your personal endeavors. If we ever relocate back to Canada, we will most definitely give you a call.  Linda and Sean

 

You have my sincere gratitude and thanks for providing me with a successful rented property.  Your professional approach and realty marketing expertise have proven most effective in providing suitable tenants. 3 months of preparation, presentations and conducting interviews have demonstrated such persistence and patience pays off. You have now provided me with the experience and knowledge that come into effect in this type of process.  In addition to your good advice, I particularly enjoyed your positive outlook, and your consistent hard working attitude as it has lead us to a quick successful closer in renting out this property.  I will look forward working with you in the not to distant future in searching, purchasing and renting properties. Thank You.  Patrick S.

 

We wanted to thank you for all of your help with the purchase of our home. We had an idea of the type of home that we wanted, and you helped to make that dream into a realty. We appreciate your patience, honesty, and expert advice. We know that with your help we made the right decision. You made the process of becoming first time homeowners as stress less as possible.  Marko and Sandra V.

 

I am pleased to offer this letter of reference for Belle Jean. She sold our house in only 12 days. Her manner is positive and professional.  As a former lawyer, I was impressed with Belle’s legal skills in going over our Agreement of Purchase and Sale and making changes in our best interest. She definitely knows what she is doing and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for an effective real estate agent.  Sincerely,   Carolyn W.

 

I wish to thank you for the professional, compassionate and very effective approach you had with me on the sale of my home in M.  From what began as a stressful situation, your kindness and positivity made the sale prompt and painless.  It resulted in a quick sale, with a very positive outcome.  Right from our first meeting, as a result of a referral from my friends, you had done your research and were able to present me with facts and figures appropriate for the area.  As I quickly learned, any feedback from you was prompt and timely.  You readily answered any queries of mine.  You always were positive and friendly.  Once the sale and paperwork were finalized, you continued to communicate.  When I sign the papers regarding the closing this week, I need to acknowledge that it wouldn’t have been so easy, if it wasn’t for your effectiveness.  I owe a huge debt of gratitude to you, personally.  I look forward to seeing you in the future.  THANK YOU BELLE!  You are amazing!  Kathleen Thomas  (P.S  I am totally delighted with my new home in L.  It’s perfect for me.  Thanks again.)

 

We worked with Belle Jean on the purchase of our house in M.  The house was listed in her name, however she represented us too.  We found that she did a very good job in balancing the needs of buyer and seller.  Belle has certain qualities which make her different from other real estate agents.  She is a good listener and tries to accommodate the customer’s requirements as much as she can.  She is hard working, patient and has good interpersonal skills.  Her knowledge of real estate business has depth and her experience provides good support to her customers in either buying or selling a house.  Mr. & Mrs. S.

 

Hello!  If you want to sell your property quickly in M., call Belle Jean.  She estimated that our house would be sold within a month.  It did.  Not only did she provide professional services, but she also provided truthful advice on the current market.  Choosing Belle Jean to sell your property is the best solution.  Grayson and Mitsuko

 

Belle, just a quick note to thank you for professional and dedicated efforts in finding a qualified buyer for our home.  We both found it amazing that the deal was closed in less than 24 hours of our lisiting, and at 99% of the listing price.  We certainly not hesitate to recommend your services.  Once again, many thanks and continued success.  Barbara and Ted P.

 

Recently we decided to sell our condominium townhouse.  Asking Belle Jean to handle the sale was the best decision we could have made.  We have known Belle for several years.  She is well known in our community, and her excellent reputation has resulted in her representing a high percentage of the listings in our area.  We sold our unit in 3 weeks.  Belle was there every step of the way’ guiding us on the appearance of the home, the details of our listing, showings and open houses, making the sale.  Donna & Jeff J.

 

Hi Belle.  Kent and I started talking about the process of selling our house, discussing what we had to do to make it marketable and which real estate agent we were going to choose.  We interviewed another agent that day, before Belle, and we were feeling quick down in the dumps after speaking with her as she did not have anything positive to say about our house and the area we lived in.  Then Belle came into our home and it was the start of something great.  We did the tour of the house and Belle kept complimenting us on various aspects of our home.  Belle was positive, upbeat, gave us constructive criticism, walked us through the process of all details and most of all we felt we had known Belle all our lives.  When it came time for the offers, Belle was there with us every step of the way.  The property sold in 2 weeks and we got more than we thought our house was worth.  Belle was a joy to deal with and we would not hesitate to recommend her to our friends or family that might in the future be in need of her services.  Kind regards Kent & Margaret W.

 

Dear Belle, We wanted to take this opportunity to thank you so much for your professional, courteous, efficient and friendly service.  You were like a breath of fresh air.  We have absolutely no reservations recommending your services to our family and friends and very much look forward to future dealings.  We were all moved by your generous support for Alexandra’s fundraising drive, and would also like to thank your brokerage for their generous donation to the MS Society.  Sincerely, Chris B. & Sandra T.

 

Our experience working with Belle Jean has been nothing less than outstanding!  Her genuine care and consideration for her clients is so evident from the first meeting to the last.  We were able to sell our home in record time and at the highest price ever in this housing complex.  She was also able to locate the perfect new home for us within just a couple of weeks.  Belle is a true professional and a great human being.  We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone!  Stephen, Rosalyn and Mary T.

 

Dear Belle, Finding a home is not easy especially if the person is living out of town.  Browsing the internet, I found Belle’s name.  Explaining my desire to buy and home and my ideas, Belle was positive to find me what I was looking for.  Belle was always professional in her work.  I’m very thankful for her attention to me and my family.  Sincerely, Eva T.

 

Belle Jean is an outstanding real estate agent who insists on going the extra mile regardless of the effort or time required.  It is refreshing to receive such excellent customer service in the nineties.  She listens well, researches the market, provides additional background necessary to make wise decisions, and is so totally committed to her clients.  Belle’s people skills are exceptional!  She made a difficult task so much easier for us and it was a pleasure to work with such a keen sales professional.  Her positive attitude and perseverance make her a winner!  My husband and I were so impressed with her thoroughness, respect for our time, prompt follow-up and confident manner in the marketplace.  Sincerely, Rosalie W.

 

Dear Belle, Thank you for your great help in getting 67 T. Street sold in such an easy trouble free way.  Also the generous help in absorbing the new survey cost.  I guess I was lucky to get you and the fast efficient way everything was handled.  Will remember you for future recommendations when the time for new purchases comes along.  Sincerely, Derek S.

 

Dear Belle, Tom and I want to thank you for helping us choose our home in M.  Being new to the city meant that we were not familiar with which area would be best for us.  We were confident though that you would help us select the best home in a great neighborhood, and you did!  Please do not hesitate to use us as a reference if you need to.  In fact, I have already recommended you to our neighbors, Patti and Gary P., and they are as pleased as we are with your service and commitment.  Our very best wishes for your future.  Sincerely,  Tom and Shirley D.

 

Ms. Jean, I wish to thank you once again for the efforts you demonstrated in helping us find a new home.  In addition to your swift ability you demonstrated to us in assessing our need diligently, and the extra work you pleasantly agreed to put in to find us a new house within a tight time frame.  We must say that my wife and I enjoyed your company during our visits.  If the opportunity is given to us, we would not hesitate a minute to recommend you to other people who are looking to buy a house.  Best regards, Go Le H.

 

Dear Belle, I want to thank you for the successful sale of my property at 5230 G.E. Dr., Unit 120.  In particular, I was impressed with your real estate knowledge of E.G., of townhomes in this area and of the real estate market in general.  As well, I was pleased with how you always kept me informed and advised me of which steps to take next in order to ensure a successful sale.  I am pleased to recommend your services to any homeowner in need of an excellent realtor.  Thank you.  Sincerely, David S.

 

Belle Jean, Thank you for your professionalism and exceptional service during the sale of our home.  Your expertise in listing and marketing our property was second to none.  We have and will continue to recommend your services to our friends and family.  Sincerely, The A. Family

 

Dear Belle, This letter is to thank you for all your hard work on the recent sale of our townhouse unit.  You made what could have been a long drawn out affair very quick and painless (only 3 weeks!!) and that, for us, is worth a lot!!  Your knowledge of the area and recent sale prices was very helpful to us in making our decisions and getting what we consider a very fair dollar for our home.  If we are ever in the market to sell a home in the future, we will definitely be in contact with you.  Sincerely, Wendy F.

 

Dear Ms. Jean, I would like to thank you for your professionalism and expertise in selling my home in record time.  It was a pleasure working with an agent as knowledgeable and prepared as you were.  I would also like to thank you for your flexibility and personal attention.  I wish you the best of luck in the future.  Sincerely, William K.

 

Dear Belle, Henry and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the great job you did on our behalf.  Your expertise and professionalism allowed us to sell our home within one week of listing and at the price we expected.  We would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone who is looking to buy or sell in the future.  Sincerely, Sharyn & Henry L.

 

Dear Belle, Selling or buying a home is not just a transaction.  It is much more than that.  First, it is a very emotional and stressful time.  In fact doctors advise us that this is one of the highest stress times in our lives.  You are also changing a way of life that you have known for years.  Because selling is not done often, it is hard to keep up with the new rules & regulations that occur over the years.  Last but not least, there is the financial considerations that all parties have to be comfortable with.  So taking all these things into consideration, a good Real Estate Agent is required.  We feel fortunate that we found one in Belle Jean.  She worked hard for us, and was genuinely interested in all aspects of the transaction, answering all our questions, and addressing our concerns.  We know she is a very successful Agent, but at no time did we feel any pressure; just concern for us and how best to handle the sale of our home.  In conclusion, if you want a comfort zone when selling your home, we highly recommend Belle Jean.  Best regards, Ron & Joan W.

 

Dear Belle, We wish to sincerely thank you for your exceptional professional services on the recent sale of our home and the purchase of our new home.  This was our first selling experience.  Although we were excited about the prospect of purchasing a new home, we were both apprehensive about selling our first home.  However, your professionalism, positive attitude, and extremely personable nature put us at ease and made it a very short and trouble-free experience.  We truly enjoyed your visits with us.  You were well prepared, friendly, honest and sincere.  We were very impressed with your knowledge of our community and the surrounding area.  You listened to us, assessed our needs and provided personal and professional direction that enabled us to make decisions regarding the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home with confidence.  Thank you once again for all your hard work.  Sincerely, Paul and Cheryl C.

 

Recently Belle Jean represented us in the sale of our house.  Her professional and friendly manner made her a pleasure to deal with, and she helped us sell our home in an efficient and timely manner.  She demonstrated a keen knowledge of our neighborhood which helped us determine the value of our home, and undoubtedly lent her credibility when dealing with potential buyers.  We would certainly recommend her to anyone who is considering selling a house.  Sincerely,  Glen B. & Karen S.

 

Belle, I wanted to take a moment and say a special THANK YOU for all the effort you put forward in helping me obtain the quick and successful sale of my townhouse. You made yourself available at all hours of the day and your follow-up was greatly appreciated.  Not only have I recommended your services to my friends, I wouldn’t hesitate to call you again if I found myself living back in the M. area.  Best of luck to you in the new year.  Regards, Kim I.
