Testimonials


My goal is to make the process of buying, selling, or owning a home efficient, enjoyable and rewarding for you.  See what my clients have said about my real estate services...

 

Hi Bev,

I just wanted to drop you a note to express our thanks for all your help in selling our home in Ottawa.  I have to first apologize for being a month late in getting back to you, along with the usual confusion of our move, I’ve been traveling all over Canada for the past 3 weeks with my work and have not had the time.  My wife Jan and I are now relocated into our new home in Moncton, NB.  Our move went very well and we are now decorating and starting our Christmas shopping.

The pressure of being relocated to a new city and leaving friends and family is stressful, but you made the selling of our home on Dewberry Crescent the least of our concerns.  We were so pleased that you took the time to meet with us on such short notice providing all the comparative sales in our area to establish the right asking price and arrange for the listing within a day or so.  We were very impressed and it made the decisions easy to make.  We were also very impressed with your home decorator who visited our home and made such helpful suggestions that helped showcase our property in its best possible condition.  We both feel this was very helpful in leaving a positive impression on the prospective buyers.

 

We were very impressed and it made the decisions easy to make.  We were also very impressed with your home decorator who visited our home and made such helpful suggestions that helped showcase our property in its best possible condition.  We both feel this was very helpful in leaving a positive impression on the prospective buyers.

You certainly helped with analyzing the offers we received and provided the professional guidance we needed in our negotiations with the successful buyer.  We felt so at ease in your newly renovated kitchen the evening that we finalized the sale of our home.  You and your husband welcomed us and made us feel as relaxed as possible.  The fact that our home sold within 3 weeks of the listing and within the slower summer season is evidence of your professional abilities.  We had no doubt that you would represent us very well after the experience we witnessed when you represented our son Mike and his wife Vera in the purchase of their home in Barhaven last spring.

Thanks again for all your help Bev, you helped us through a difficult time in our lives and you did it with charm and style.  We both appreciate all you’ve done for us and hope to stop by and say hello when we’re in Ottawa over the Christmas holidays.

Good Morning Bev, Hope all is well! I am calling to thank you for the outstanding performance you provided on the sale of my home on Flanders Street. By the time we called you on Sunday morning for an evaluation, pictures you took to show caswe our house, then to the actual listing signing on that same day, you sold the house the following day with 99.4% of our asking price within a twenty-four hour period! Thank you for explaining to me the importance of listing my house at the right price and the impact it could have on the number of showings with offers. Thank you for making the sale of my home an exciting experience and living up to my expectations in a proffession realestate agent, such as your-self. Thank you Bev for being the person you are...Great!

To Whom It May Concern:

What can we say except a HUGE thanks to Bev Thompson, again

She made the last six weeks of buying and selling extremely stress free in more ways than one.  She was always there to answer questions anytime night or day no matter how silly we thought they were and whenever we wanted to go and look at a house she made it happen almost immediately. For the last 16 years that she has been our agent she has always shown us compassion and caring each time that we have moved and made us feel like we were her only clients and for that we are eternally grateful.  If you’re looking for a real estate agent who is professional, friendly and extremely caring then we can recommend no body better than Bev.

Hi Bev,

I wanted to take a few minutes to send you a note to convey my thanks and appreciation for everything you've done for me over the past few months.  I honestly felt like I was your only client, you gave me such personal attention.  Not only were you available for all the showings I wanted to schedule, but you offered your professional and personal opinion and helped me make the right decision.  I am extremely happy in my new home and I think you're the best real estate agent ever!  Thanks for following up with me on all the outstanding issues and for keeping in touch.  All the best to you and your family this holiday season and all throughout 2006.

Hi Bev,

Rob and I wanted to Thank You for all of your time, patience and effort you gave us when purchasing our new home and selling our current home.

I never thought selling our house would be as quick and easy as you made it, especially with 3 small children. You had our house sold in days which made our move that much easier. You definitely made this our best move I would highly recommend you to anyone who seeks any real estate needs.

You will have to come over to see the house after we give it a bit of TLC.

Thanks
Rob and Karen Toffoli

Dear Bev,

James and I would to thank you for making our house hunting trip such a great success. We are so pleased with the new house and can hardly wait to see it finished! We very much appreciate all your time, patience, expertise & friendly advice, all of which made our house hunting such a pleasure. We hope to stay in touch and will let you know how the “centennial Red” turns out!

Best Regards,
James & Natalie Jonasson

Bev

We took possession of our new condo yesterday and couldn’t be happier. Thank you for all your hard work on our behalf and your unending patience with us as first-time home buyers. Your knowledge and professionalism helped us find a place we can be proud to call home.

Thank you!
Melissa and Gavriil Giorgiou

Dear Bev,

It still gives me a thrill every time I write my address. Knowing that this is my home, my first home is a special feeling that I cannot compare with anything I have ever experienced. We are so grateful to you, because it was your hard work and dedication that made it all possible. As first time buyers, I know there were dozens of things we didn't know. How fortunate we were to have you representing us. You made the process smooth and your dedication was amazing.

I don't know how many times someone asks you to find them a house in a week. Your patience was incredible. You were there for us all the time, and I know how busy you are. After all, we dragged you through twenty seven houses in a week, kept you up half the night doing an offer and had to rely on your contacts to find us a lawyer and a broker. Your knowledge of everything related to buying and selling a home, your keen eye, your appraisal skills and your dedication made our home buying experience a dream. It was relatively painless and we are so appreciative of your professional expertise. You knew what we wanted and you found it. Not a day goes by that we aren't more and more enamoured with our home. I guess that's the important thing. You didn't just find us a house, you found us a home.

When we went looking for a real estate agent, there were some who had bigger offices, or more publicity or higher sales figures. I guess bigger sometimes seems more attractive. So, we ended up getting an agent with something bigger, and that is heart. You were more than just our agent, you were our guide through the whole process. I know that anyone who is smart enough to engage your services will always be thankful that they did and I wish you much success in the future. You can be sure that you will always have our heartfelt recommendation.

Sincerely,

Kathy and Kevin Dingwell - Dec 2002

We just wanted to send a note of thanks for selling our home. At a time like this when the market is slow we appreciate that you showed our house to your clients even though it was not one of your listings, proving that you put your clients first. I would certainly recommend you to anyone either buying or selling a home.

Thank-you again for your help and professionalism in selling our home.

Dear Bev,

It gives us great pleasure to provide a most outstanding reference for Mrs. Bev Thompson as a Real Estate Agent.

Bev, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you both for the time and effort you put into the purchase of our first home. Your patience and careful attention to our particular wants and needs put into the purchase made this experience a very pleasant one. The excellent service you gave us, made us feel very comfortable with the tremendous "leap" we were about to take.

We want to recognize the good work done and without a doubt, we will be recommending you to any home buyer/seller. Your extensive experience and ability to deal so nicely with people, has made us completely satisfied with our purchase.

It is rare to have the opportunity to provide such an outstanding recommendation for an individual. In your case Bev, we do it without reservation. Once again, a million thanks.

Sincerely,
Luc & Sylvie

Dear Bev,

Just a short note to say Thank You for all the help and consideration that you bestowed upon us while acting as our Realtor.

Moving from Guelph to Ottawa and leaving our children and grandchildren behind was very difficult for us as you know, but you made things much easier and simpler for us.  You somehow found us the perfect home in an area close to Joe's work and the price was what we wanted to pay. That, I'm sure was not an easy feat considering the fast paced market right now and all the wants and needs we had on our shopping list.

We are very grateful for your help and will surely call on you in the future if need be, as well as refer you to others who are selling or looking for new homes.

Gratefully yours,
Joe and Debbie Hackenschmidt

To whom it may concern,

BEVERLY THOMPSON - LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION

1. The purpose of this letter is to express my complete satisfaction with the services provided by Bev as my Real Estate Agent.

2. I have had the opportunity to avail myself of her services both as a buyer's agent when I arrived in Ottawa in 1995 and as a sellers's agent when I left Ottawa in 1999. As my buyer's agent, Beverly demonstrated a rare ability to organize what little time I had to devote to a search for a home. From the very beginning of my search, it was obvious that she had done a thorough analysis of my needs and wishes and had put together a comprehensive plan which took into account the state of the market at the time. Her advice was invaluable during the many hours viewing the homes on the market and during the difficult negotiations that ensued. The net result of her unstinting efforts on my behalf was a home wich suited my needs and my budget.

3. More recently, Beverly acted as my agent when I was posted from Ottawa. Once again, she brought to bear the considerable skills and experience as well as knowledge of the business and the prevailing conditions of the market place to ensure that my house was aggressively marketed. My house was sold quickly and for a reasonable price. Her advice was priceless in establishing the parameters under which my house would be best marketed.

4. In both instances, Bev went out of her way to ease the anxiety and stress associated with the buying and selling a home. Having herself gone through this situation on my occasions enables her to understand how people involved in real estate search and transactions feel and how to best alleviate their fears. She made it a point of honour to make herself available at any time to answer my questions and keep me updated on the situation. Indeed all my pages were answered within a few minutes of calling her office.

5. Bev came to me highly recommended and I must unequivocally state I would highly recommend her to anyone considering buying or selling a home.
