Testimonials

The family is absolutely tickled with the outcome and realize that it would not have been so if not for your involvement. You went far beyond the call of duty and made this process as painless as possible. I have not known anyone in your profession to do all that you have on our behalf and we are all grateful to you.

Don took us on as first time cottage buyers and we were completely ignorant of the complexities of purchasing waterfront property in the Penetanguishene area on Southern Georgian Bay. Don provided great advice and showed great patience. After viewing many properties and a lengthy education process, we settled on a property for which Don also represented the seller. He handled the conflict well and we received good advice during the negotiation. We bought a property that we love and feel we paid a fair price and Don provided us with a first rate service throughout the search and purchase. -- Kendra and Mike Neudoerffer.

Don:

My thanks go out to you for the very professional way in which you tackled the sale of this relatively unique waterfront property. Your tenacity, diligence, knowledge and patience (including that which was required in dealing with me, the seller) seemed inexhaustible, although I am sure there had to have been some tenuous moments.

In addition to handling the brokering duties you were kind enough to act as a property manager on my behalf. Any issues that arose were either handled by you personally or through your many accumulated throughout both your career and residence in the area. The way these contacts responded to you spoke loudly to the relationships you have built over time. This afforded me the luxury of not having to make the two hour plus trip each way in the majority of circumstances while the property sat empty. Your prompt availability by phone or email added tremendous comfort to the entire process.

You managed to very deftly negotiate the transaction itself while simultaneously handling my lack of familiarity with real estate in general and with this area in particular. You constantly went above and beyond the call of duty. Your patience, expertise and professionalism made all the difference Don!

I will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone interested in real estate in the Southern Georgian Bay area.

I wanted to say thanks for your top quality service that resulted in the sale of our property at this slow point in the real estate season. Clearly, your strategy, responsiveness and can-do attitude made things happen so well All the best

Hi, Don.
 
I am remiss. I had planned to send you a thank-you email on Dec. 15 when the deal closed for my property.  
You were terrific. How you managed to sell the land so quickly at this time of year is beyond me.
 
I will indeed be telling my friends and loved ones in the Georgian Bay area about you.
 
Many thanks again, and all the best of the season.

Don,
I wanted to thank you very much for your assistance with helping us find and secure the cottage.  We are very excited about the place and you have been of great assistance in making the transition as seamless as possible.
 
Working remotely from Toronto we had some concerns up front about whether or not to use a local Toronto Agent or yourself, but it soon became apparent after the wealth of information that you knew about the surroundings that this was a tremendous asset to us securing this place.  From looking at old permits with the township to helping us with contractors for a new roof, giving us advice on the plumbing and locating the septic tank, you went above and beyond the call of duty and we really appreciate that.  During all phases of the purchase, initial showing, price negotiations, home inspection and closing, it seamed you were always just a call or email away.  Your response time was fantastic and never did feel that our questions were not being addressed.
 
Your work with the sellers was also very upfront and encouraging and assisted us in making a financially sound decision that I know we will be happy with for years to come. 
 
Don, thanks again for all your help, you are a credit to Remax and the industry as a whole.  We would not hesitate to refer anyone to you, which we have already done, even those just walking by!

To whom it may concern;
 
My wife and I recently decided to sell our lakefront property and retained Don Redmond to handle the sale. From the first meeting with Don to finalizing the sale (just 2 weeks later!) he is the most knowledgeable and professional real estate person we have ever dealt with. Throughout the entire process Don offers genuine reassurance. He knows the local market and understands the peculiarities of working with waterfront property.
 
We would highly recommend Don to anyone interested in buying or selling real estate in this area.

Dear  Don

 

 RE: House locate and purchase

 

Don, I want to compliment you on the system you use to keep clients aware of properties fitting the specified criteria. But more importantly, I want to thank you for your personal diligence, your availability, your prompt responses(many), and your skill and tenacity in closing a deal!

I believe we have secured a property which satisfies every need, and look forward to moving my family on closing.

Many thanks,

Don,

 

Thanks for all the help and guidance. This was my first cottage purchase, and your patience and local expertise made all the difference. I can’t thank you enough for the extra effort you undertook to:

 

a) Bring my entire family to look at the property while I was overseas;

b) Send countless images / videos of the site; and,

c) Coordinate the entire transaction on a different time zone without ever meeting me in person.

 

I look forward to having you visit the cottage this summer and finally introducing myself. I would definitely recommend your services to anyone looking to buy or sell in the area, and will be passing your contact details onto my family and friends!”

 

Best regards,

 

Doug

Don,
Thanks so much for your help.  I'm amazed that it sold so quickly in this economic mess that we're going through.  Thanks again and I will certainly recommend you to friends and family.

Don, we want to thank you so much for all your hard work and dedication to selling our property.  You handled our special case beautifully.  Your attention to detail was much appreciated and your advice was right on the money every time.  You obviously know your market and the industry.  We’ve bought and sold many houses in southern Ontario and we’ve never worked with a more professional agent. 

I would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone buying or selling a property.

 Best regards,

 Sherry & Ash

EFFECTIVE, EFFICIENT, KNOWLEDGEABLE

We unconditionally recommend Don to expertly assist you in both buying and selling property. We found Don not only knoledgeable about the market, but also prompt in processing the appropriate paper work and and answering all our questions. More importantly, we were able to buy our property in one day, and sell our property within one week of listing. The results of both transactions exceeded our expectations

Dear Don,
Thank you so much for all of the effort and commitment to negotiate the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home.
You coached us and helped facilitate services on this end to push the sale of our home and to make it possible for us to meet our deadline on our relocating.
We really appreciate the time and effort you put in and the special interest you took to help us find something in an area that will serve our needs and enjoyment.
This is the 13th sale and purchase of homes for me, and your service tops any I have had in the past.
Larry and Tanya Snell

Dear Don:
We just wanted to send you a little note of our deepest thanks for all of your hard work, expertise and personal service in the purchase of our new home.
As you said during our first meeting, "your home is the single greatest investment that you will ever make", we now also understand that the selection of the right real estate agent is definitely second.
...It is only because of your dedication, extensive knowledge and advice that we were able to complete the sale of our home in order to meet the deadline for the new home that we had purchased through you.
At all stages of the purchase you displayed strong integrity and professionalism. When showing us the home, there was no pressure, no selling - simply "have a look and you will know for yourself, whether its's right for you, from the minute you walk in the door". You were right....
... throughout the negotiations you were supportive and we always felt that you were looking out for our best interests.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. It is because of you that we found our cute country home to raise our future family in and that will meet all of the growing needs of our home business. Truly, our doing business with you changed our lives!
