|... your strategy in marketing our house was unique and well planned, and during the time that it was for sale, you were always there to answer any questions we may have had. When it came time to negotiate with possible buyers, you were extremely thorough and informative in helping us achieve our ultimate goal.

| ..... The two transactions
provided some complexities; your calmness and perseverance was much appreciated
when the “first” sale of our home collapsed. You deserve a lot of
credit for not rushing to get it sold again “at any price”. The way
you handled the remarketing saved us several thousand dollars.
Finally, the extra effort you devoted after the transactions were firm to finally get the bridge loan approved in the bank’s faceless back office, after I had given up, was truly unexpected, and will give us that precious time to make our new home prepared for a smooth move and a joy to finally occupy.
We are so happy with all of the work you have done for us, and have no hesitation whatsoever recommending you to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home........
Richard, thank you again for all of your work and understanding. And we both wish you the best of success in all of your endeavors. In the event we decide to move again, rest assured that we will be in touch with you.
|Anyway, Richard, I'd like to say with regard to your acting as our agent ... that "my dad and I are very pleased with the way you have handled the selling of our home. You were available when we needed your advice, always exhibited a most courteous and friendly manner, and demonstrated a professional demeanour that is second to none. I also admire your involvement with the needy - which suggests to me a side of your person that enhances your image to the community."|
|We were very pleased with the attention and dispatch ... we told you we wanted an agent who would "hustle" -- and you certainly did that! ... Thank you, it was a happy experience all round.|
