Testimonials


 


We approached Kathryn to sell our house after Several months of trying unsuccessfully with another Realtor. Kathryn came to our house prepared with her CMA (market evaluation) and eager to sell. She suggested listing our home for $10,000 over our previous asking Price!! We were leary but had faith in her. To our pleasant surprise, Kathryn had us a deal in less than 4 days that came in OVER asking! We will ONLY recommend Kathryn in the future to our family and friends. We can't Thank her enough!

I have dealt with Kathryn for several real estate transactions over the years and have always found her to be knowledgeable, thorough and and extremely professional with a fantastic sense of humor. She is a great negotiator and absolutely the Agent that I would want on my side, representing me.  I sure would not want to be competing against her in a transaction!!

Kathryn: We were very happy with our dealing with you. Both for the buying and the selling. We feel you worked very hard for us. We also were very pleased that you were able to sell our home quickly and for the price we wanted. Our friends have had their house on the market for 5 months. Thanks for the info on the houses – so we felt we were up to date on the market, and had a proper value assessment of our home.

Thanks again for all your hard work!

Thank you Kathryn, for your assistance in selling my father's house.

Kathryn did such a great job with both the purchase and sale of my properties that I would, and have, heartily recommend her to everyone.  What worked especially in my case was the advantage of her years of business and marketing experience.

From our initial conversation right through to the negotiations on the offer, your experience and attention to detail made the whole process much less stressful than I ever imagined. Your recommendations on what to do to enhance the appearance of the house, your market analysis and evaluation of pricing strategies and the handling of the little details were first class.

 

If anyone had told me that we would have the house sold within 6 days and a price at over 99% of asking I would have thought they were crazy.

 

You made the difference!

Kathryn Bandiera made the process of selling my home much easier than I had expected.  Kathryn's comprehensive plan that included previous and current comparable listings in my neighbourhood helped me understand the environment and how she arrived at the selling price for my house.  Kathryn took the time to go through my home with me and gave me very smart advice on what to do, or not to do, to get my home ready for sale.  

The beautiful brochure, virtual tour and comprehensive listing drove many buyers to my home.  I believe that all of Kathryn's experience and knowledge, superior customer service and her sincere desire to get me the best possible deal, all contributed to the competing bids and quick sale of my home. 

 

Kathryn's professionalism, knowledge and personal touch make her an extraordinary Realtor in whom one can rest assured that she makes her clients a priority. I have, and will continue to recommend Kathryn with the highest confidence to my friends, family and neighbours.

Regarding Kathryn's VIP Home Buyer's System...I thought it was fantastic.  I loved how I could look at properties at my leisure and not feel pressured.  I also liked the fact that I was provided with all the information so that when I did go see something, there weren't too many surprises.  I also liked that fact that it only showed me properties that were in my price range, so I wasn't looking at things that were nice, but that I couldn't afford.  It also allowed me to pre-view  a lot of homes that when the right property became available, I felt comfortable making an offer, as you had provided me with research and facts, and comparatives, so that I was comfortable in the price point you were negotiating.
 
As for your services, I thought you were fantastic.  As a young first time buyer, I dealt with many agents who never returned my calls, nor did they have much interest representing me.  However, when we first met, you were immediately committed to helping me find a home, without the pressure that it had to be right away.  You were always professional and friendly as well as knowledgeable about the market.  You were also available when I needed you.   Thank you for making my first home buying experience a positive one.  I would definitely recommend your services to others.

During the sale of my house, Kathryn was instrumental in 2 big areas.  Having already purchased another home, my concern was maximizing the value of my home plus the speed that we could get an offer.
 
First, Kathryn made a big impact in getting the house ready for viewing.  Her advice:  “keep this, lose that”, “repaint the entrance way for a best first impression”, “don’t worry about that, it won’t increase your value”, etc.  created only positive responses during the showings.  In fact, I received an offer on the first day!   That was the second area where Kathryn was key.  Price negotiations were not easy.  She kept me calm during that stressful time while making sure that I was going to receive the best possible price for my house.  I would consider an accepted offer, in the 1st week, for 98.5% of the asking price more than a success-especially since it was one of the highest priced homes on the street!  Thank you Kathryn!
 
Kathryn’s negotiating skills also worked in my favour during the purchase of my home.  We saw so many places that my head was spinning.  Kathryn helped to keep the features of each place distinct and, more importantly, helped me to keep looking at my goals to become more specific on what I was looking for.  I am convinced that without her help, I would not have ended up where I did.  I am thrilled with my choice and the assistance I received getting here.

So, I learned from this experience that true success came with much more than “showing me a house and filling out the contracts”.   You will not go wrong by working with Kathryn!

When I sold my house last summer, Kathryn was instrumental in ensuring that I received the best price in the quickest amount of time.  Her initial detailed research on past sales in my area, along with what my 'competition' was offering, dramatically helped in setting the price and conditions for the house.  Kathryn's attention to the details of the sale was extremely reassuring - the target marketing and timing of the sale; the suggestions on how best to present my house;  the professionalism presented at Open Houses and showings;  the follow-through with potential interested buyers and their agents - all served in making this a pleasant experience.
 
Not only did Kathryn deliver a sale at 99.6% of asking price but she also delivered it within 5 hours of the first Open House!! ( I received $8m more than a similar home which sold month earlier on my street) That gave me a great deal of relief and satisfaction - enough to enjoy the rest of the summer before the Closing!
 
If someone is thinking of selling their home or purchasing a new property, I highly recommend Kathryn - her knowledge, experience and dedication in getting the results you want is invaluable!

 Kathryn's VIP Buyer's Program is Invaluable!  She set me up on it, and we were viewing homes that MATCHED our criteria the next day!  Not only did 'we' get to choose which homes we went to see - we ended up finding our Dream Home!! (Thank you Kathryn for your patience with us, and for not pressuring us into a sale! Your service and great attitude are appreciated.)
Thank you Kathryn for providing us with an Invaluable Service!!
