Andrew helped me find and sell my first house.... The process was super straight forward, he made everything simple and less stressful than it needed to be. The guy puts so much effort into helping us, I even recommended him to my father, who sold his house through Andrew. If I moved back to Brantford, Cambridge or the surrounding areas, I would recommend him and his team.read more

Andy was a great asset during the sale of our... home. He came prepared with numerous comparable properties to explain the market to us and offered different strategies to get our home sold at a price and timeline we were comfortable with. Him and his team always kept us up to date and informed during the viewing process and responded to all of our questions thoroughly and in a timely manner. As a first time home seller I highly recommend Andy and his team.read more

One of the best decisions we have ever made was... to list with Andrew and Kate. They are very knowledgeable about the local market we were in and were extremely thorough and detail oriented during the listing of our home of 35 years. Kate and her team were in constant communication with us for entire process. We had a few requests as to potential buyers and Kate checked all the boxes and brought us multiple offers. We could not be happier with the end result which exceeded our expectations .. We would highly recommend this dynamic sales team to anyone who are buying or selling.read more
