What Out of Town Buyers Say



"Joyce's Team was super to work with.  Knowledgeable, personable, organized and attentive to details. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a home in the London area.

Thanks Joyce for all the information provided by your Team all along the way."


MEGAN O'HARA
1781B Fenwick Road
Cowichan Bay BC V0R 1N1

“A long distance move and downsizing of my ‘parental units’ was much less stressful under the guidance of Joyce Byrne. She narrowed down possibilities in several local communities, weeded through home options, weighed practicalities for ailing seniors, all within a tight timeline and a tight budget.

With the combination of her constant eye on the market, experience, articulation and knowledge she exudes, as well as her great understanding for our complex needs, (not without mention - her number-crunching mortgage broker), her team single-handedly turned my parents’ opinions of the real estate process from what were nightmares previously to a pleasant experience. That in itself is impressive!”


DAVE AND JOAN MCGLYNN
278 Walnut St.
Lucan Ontario N0M 2J0

"Moving from Toronto to London was proving to be a daunting task, until we started working with Joyce Byrne and her team.

Joyce helped us find exactly what we were looking for in a house, and at the price point we were hoping for. Joyce and her team are very connected in the community, and know just about everything there is to know about each neighbourhood in the city.

We were definitely in good hands, and we love our new house! Thanks Joyce and team!"


DAN AND LINDSAY CURTIS
6846 Raleigh Blvd.
London ON N6P 1V5

"We found Joyce through her very informative website when we were looking to buy our first investment property.  We were extremely impressed with Joyce’s experience as well as her personal reputation.  Upon getting to know her better we were also impressed with her honesty and integrity.

Joyce is a very professional agent, her accessibility was amazing.  Joyce provided us with honest feedback.  With over 30 years experience she was very familiar with the neighbourhoods and pointed out areas of concern with each property we viewed.

Joyce spent many hours with us and continues to stay in touch with us."

Thank you Joyce!


KEN AND SHAWNA KIRKPATRICK
94 Victor Blvd.
St.George ON N0E 1N0

“Well what can I say about Joyce; only that she is the best agent out there. Always available to talk; knows the area like the back of her hand. Gets the job done in a fun and professional manner.

This is our third moving experience with Joyce and we wouldn't have it any other way. Thanks again for helping us purchase our new home and recommending an agent to help sell our home in Goderich.

Your experience and knowledge is spot on and makes a potentially stressful situation an enjoyable one. Because our house sold fast we had to decide quickly and in one long but productive day we found our new home.

Once all the paperwork was completed we were dreading the home inspection but the inspector you recommended made the inspection a breeze and the few things he found you addressed to have them fixed by the seller before we took possession.

As always, we expect honesty, integrity and an agent with experience to assist us with our real estate needs. When it came time to make a move we went with Joyce and received the same excellent qualities of professionalism, feedback, skills and accessibility.

Joyce really could not have done better as she went out of her way to assist us. We have enjoyed working with Joyce and making the experience of finding a new home enjoyable!”


BRENDA AND WAYNE CHUTER
2 Suncoast Drive E
Goderich ON N7A 4W7

"Your patience and professionalism in helping us find the perfect home in South Western Ontario is greatly appreciated. The complimentary home inspection really assisted us in making the right decision.

You had patience in viewing many properties and were prompt in following up with emails and phone calls. Your Team was very helpful in printing and emailing documents for us. Thanks for everything!"


RANDY WHITE AND JOHANNA VANDORN
86 York Street
Hensall ON N0M 1X0

"Thank you once again for all of your hard work, referrals to experts and for guiding us through the process.  Short closing and a Bank Sale certainly made the process a bit more hectic/stressful than a regular purchase but everything got done and was handled in a professional manner.  

We will continue to choose you and your team for any and all real estate purchases/sales that we do. Thank you also for the gift package, and we will happily fill out the review and continue to refer any friends or family in the area to your team."


SIMON & NICOLE ESPOSITO
34715 Creamery Road
Ailsa Craig ON N0M 1A0

We used Joyce Byrne to help us locate a home in the St. Thomas area after we were referred to her by our selling agent in Brampton.
Our first meeting with Joyce took place in her office. Over the next two hours she informed us of the services that she provided and all the information to allow us to make a smooth home purchase. After outlining our requirements for a new home she began to send us e-mails containing properties which fit our needs.
Joyce was available, on short notice, to organize viewings and answer all our questions. After numerous trips to St. Thomas we found a house. That day she worked late into the evening to assist us in coming to an agreement with the owners. Joyce setup the home inspection for the next morning and also engaged a roofing contractor to check out the condition of the roof. Over the next few days she sent us documents for review and sign.
Our experience with Joyce Byrne has been very positive and productive. She is by far the best real estate agent with have dealt with. Joyce is not only very informed and professional but she is a nice person. We would highly recommend her and her team for all clients looking to sell or purchase a property.

Thank you Joyce!


PATTI AND KARL BUCKMULLER
110 Avondale Blvd
Brampton Ontario L6T1H7

It was important to us to have an experienced agent who was professional, accessible, and honest. Joyce Byrne’s gave us a unique high quality service that we did not expect.

She used her negotiating skills and also gave us ongoing feedback, which we greatly appreciated. We were extremely satisfied with Joyce and her team.

I would most definitely use Joyce as a realtor again and I recommend her to any one in need of her services.


MARK WOLFORTH AND INGRID JOHNSRUDE
4 Hillcroft Drive
Kingston Ontario K7L 4E8

"Joyce showed complete honesty and tenacity throughout the process. We knew we were getting outstanding service and representation, and feel completely confident that we got the best price on our house.  Absolutely recommended"!


PROFESSOR AMANDA MOEHRING AND TOM WINKELER
513 Canterbury Road
London Ontario N6G 2N5

“We were referred to Joyce and based upon her reputation, experience plus Joyce’s honesty and integrity we entrusted her to help us find a home for our daughter while she attends university. Upon our first in person meeting, we immediately knew we could trust Joyce.

Throughout our search, Joyce provided excellent advice and as we live in Calgary and had to conclude our transaction on the phone, this was very important to us.

We would not hesitate to recommend Joyce to anyone and will definitely use Joyce to sell the house when our daughter is finished university.”

JOE AND KERRY PAVIGLIANITI
4835 49 N.W.
Calgary Alberta T3A 0R8

Coming from Toronto we thought the search for a new home would be most challenging but Joyce made it seem very easy.

The process was made even easier when Joyce’s team provided us with complimentary accommodations.

Within two days we found our lovely new house. Thanks Joyce!”


CARL SEGAL AND EILEEN COHEN
763 Garibaldi Avenue
London Ontario N5X 4J8

"We recently moved to London from Brampton. Our agent in Brampton recommended Joyce to us based on her years of experience, good reputation and knowledge of London.

After spending a day touring London and viewing some homes with Joyce, we were veryimpressed with her honesty, integrity, knowledge of houses and unbiased advice.

When it came to negotiation time, Joyce was ethical, fair, informed, experienced, efficient and effective. We made offers on two other houses before landing at this one. She helped us get past the first two tries (an overpriced older home and a previous grow-op) to find the right home in the right neighbourhood with the right price.

If it wasn't for Joyce and her due diligence and expert knowledge of real estate law, we may have ended up in the house that was previously a grow-op and had a huge liability on our hands.

And if it wasn't for Joyce, we may have lost our minds when this house suddenly had water damage just days before possession. Joyce supported us through the whole stressful closing and made sure we were protected by providing excellent and prompt communication with all concerned (us, our lawyer, the seller's agent).

We felt comforted to know that Joyce was looking out for us when we were a 2-hour drive away with two young children. Joyce even provided information on the London Newcomers Club and other network opportunities to help us make connections in our new town.

We are very happy in London and strongly recommend Joyce Byrne for your next move!"


CATHERINE AND MATT BROWN
1707 Milestone Road
London Ontario N5X 2G1

Joyce Byrne's Team took care of us like the move was theirs!  Their knowledge and concern regarding our move and making sure we were informed about details were most valuable to us. 

The Team definitely helped us make our move a smooth transition into a different area.  Your team was more than Realtors to us; you became friends we could count on always!


JUDY AND EDDIE LIPFERT
35851 Grand Bend Road
Parkhill Ontario N0M 2K0

Joyce's Team was fantastic! Joyce kept us updated on everything that was happening with the sale of our home and gave us honest input on the homes we were looking at purchasing. Their experience and friendly nature made the sale and purchase of our homes a positive one.

Thank you for everything;


NAOMI AND ROB BESTER
44 Briscoe Street

The Team's support and advice on potential properties was invaluable. Our experience with Joyce Byrne's Real Estate Team was very enjoyable.


ART AND LAURIE SMITH

London Ontario N6K 5R3

Thank-you to your entire team for your thoughtful gestures. They've been greatly appreciated , and a bit of a treat. With this major move occurring in just over a month, we look forward to starting the next phase of our life in London.

Without your team, our buying process wouldn't have been as painless and easy going as it was. We truly do appreciate the assistance that Realtors provide, and that they made the process for us as easy going as it was.

You did an amazing job helping us find a home in London.  Your recommended properties were right on the mark, and the assistance through the process was invaluable.

Thanks again...


RUSSELL AND EMILY ARCHER
598 Classic Drive
London Ontario N5W 5X8

It's been a little over a month since the big move and we still can't believe how easily you helped us achieve our dream.

I've finally had a moment to put a few words of thanks and praise together. Thanks and praise are indeed deserved in this situation. From day one we've enjoyed your refreshingly direct approach and step by step directions.

You've made the previously perceived daunting task of becoming a first time home owner into easy to digest baby steps. We have to give great credit to your knowledge of the neighbourhoods, area's and the market which allowed us to make better decisions. The Team's patience, flexibility, expertise and good sense of humour made the long days of house hunting shorter and enjoyable. We were offered a fair and balanced opinion based on knowledge and experience.

Even though we weren't in the big spender class, we always felt that we were your top priority. Everyone was  there every time we needed a hand or advice and you  always took the time to talk to us as people... not just as clients... not just as the next sale, but as people.

We never felt pressured, we never felt like a nuisance, we always felt as we were treated as friends. I can't recommend your Real Estate team's service, approach and ethics enough. If we ever need to buy or sell again, we will be calling you. Thank you for helping us purchase our first home. It's been like a dream ever since we moved in! Thank you all again!


PATRICK AND REBECCA SITLINGTON

"When relocating, you put a lot of faith in your realtor, and your team didn't let us down.Your honesty and concern was immediately recognized and therefore our comfort level was high. Thank you all for your expert service."


KAREN AND DR. ALLAN DOVIGI



"Having never been to London, you spent a great deal of time showing me the city and provided me with a terrific amount of information including maps, telephone numbers, mortgage information, sales statistics, etc. You even showed me the route I would take from the house I was looking to buy and my work.

I can hardly wait for one of my friends or coworkers to buy a house so that I can recommend your services!!"


VERA BABIY
Regional Claims Specialist - Co-Operators Insurance



"When my family and & I elected to accept a new job and move from Moncton, New Brunswick to London, we were fortunate to find your name on the MLS internet on a listing for a house we were interested in.


You screened more than 100 homes for us before our whirlwind tour and when our first set of prospects were not what we were looking for, you quickly found us new alternatives by the next morning. You helped us with a difficult bargaining process and provided us with the names of reliable people we contacted to finalize our deal. We hold nothing but deep appreciation and thanks for a job well done."


DR. BILL THOMPSON M.D., F.R.C.P. (C)
Medical Director - H.I.V. Care Program



"After living overseas for more than 3 years, it was important for us to familiarize ourselves with London. We certainly appreciated your guidance in selecting a desirable locationand most importantly, you understood our issues concerning the schooling for our son.

Above all, we were most impressed with the customer service you provided. It's quite apparent that you enjoy working with people and it's refreshing to find someone who trulyenjoys their profession.
Should we ever decide to upgrade or sell our home, Joyce's team will be the first one we contact."


MARIANNE BELL

"Your patience, professional attitude and knowledge made the buying experience a positive one. It was so refreshing to deal with someone who listened to what I was looking for and did not waste my time looking at properties that did not fit my requirements.

It would be my pleasure to recommend Joyce's team to any prospective clients!"


ANITA GILVESY

"When the market in London started to gather steam, we were fearful that we wouldn't be able to get what we wanted for a price we could afford. Your quick responses to the new listings made it possible for us to arrive from Acton on time so we could buy the house of our dreams!"


BILL AND MARY ANN MCGRATH
17 Wychwood Park
London Ontario N6G 1R4

Your personal touches were fantastic. After we decided to build our dream home, you took it upon yourself to take a picture of the new house and mail it to us in Sarnia so we could show our friends and family. You showed lots of patience with us and our four year old son.

You educated us in every aspect of buying a home. We were very happy to deal with you from the first day we met."


ERIN TURNER
38 Cedarwood Rd
London Ontario N6H 5E7

"We needed to tell you only once what we were looking for and you came through for us. As a retired couple returning to London, we couldn't have asked for better service."

"We were impressed by your organization in developing a schedule of houses to view, all of which were in the specifications and price range we had requested, resulting in very efficient use of our time while visiting London."


FRED AND JANET BLAKE

This letter is to thank you for your tremendous help in finalizing the deal of this beautiful property at 16 Chapman Court in London . Your team did a great job negotiating on our behalf which saved us a lot of money in the cost of repairs.

 

Your prompt actions and keeping us well informed are greatly appreciated. We were also impressed with the package you had at hand such as rental applications, tenancy agreements, names of Home Inspectors and tradesmen etc...

Be assured that if anybody is interested in buying or selling properties, we would not hesitate to refer your excellent team. Thanks again! 


ARIEL & LALLY RICO
653 Caboto Trail
Markham Ontario L3R 5V8

Because we lived in a different province, I had just one weekend to find my family the perfect home. Leading up to my arrival in Ontario, Joyce kept me updated on suitable properties via email.

When I arrived in town she worked tirelessly to not only help me find a wonderful country home, but also put together an offer that was accepted with little hassle. She was always available when I had questions or concerns.

Joyce's team were also very helpful as we prepared paperwork and faxed it back and forth between provinces. Joyce's help and expertise did not end with the sale - she worked with various inspectors, collected water samples and continued to offer advice and guidance right up to our closing date.

She offered us maps, area information and even business cards of reputable area business people that might be useful.

She was a pleasure to work with. We would never hesitate to recommend Joyce to our family, friends or anyone else that is in need of a realtor.


CHRISTINE & DR.TREVOR SHEPHERD

St. Mary's Ontario N4X 1C7

Hi Joyce, it’s a voice from the past. Remember the Pereira’s? You sold 2 of our homes in London and we moved to Ohio in 2000? Well we are investigating some options, and we were wondering if you could help again? 

John & I are well and the kids are growing like weeds. I am happy to see your business has progressed well over the last 5-6 years. I just knew you would have a website and sure enough it was the #1 pick on Google search


ESTRELLA & JOHN PEREIRA

Canton OH

"Right from the beginning call we made to you, from Winnipeg, Manitoba, you made us feel welcome and that we were extremely valuable clients. You walked us through all the steps that would be necessary to purchase a home and have a successful closing.

The information package that you provided us was very helpful, as it provided timelines and lists for us to follow. We were amazed at the service you provided and the personal sacrifices that you made to meet our tight schedule for purchasing a home.

Your availability to speak to us both day and night whenever we had questions or concerns also speaks to your commitment. Your team's tremendous amount of knowledge, not only in the real estate field, but the city of London, home maintenance, home amenities that our family would need, what schools were better than others and the list goes on.

All your recommendations were extremely valuable and made what is normally a tough and stressful period into one that was exciting and rewarding. Finally it made us feel especially looked after when even though the deal has been completed, you still do follow up calls, to this day, to ensure our satisfaction and that everything is going smoothly in our new home.

It is good to know that you stand behind your work and care about those that you have served. For all those reasons and more we look forward to dealing with you in the future." Thanks again.

You are interested in meeting our needs, thorough, knowledgeable and a very pleasant person to spend the day house hunting with. Finding the right house can be stressful and we appreciate having you on our side. Calling you was the best decision we've made since we started looking for London real estate."

"Not only did you research the area for us to obtain listings to show us, but you knew exactly where to go when we got there. We were very impressed with your knowledge of the market and your honesty. Your team was extremely thorough and careful to find out what OUR needs and WANTS were before even beginning the search.

You took time to listen before coming to any conclusions. Everyone on your team was extremely personable, punctual, educated and well informed.

We were so impressed with the service we received from your team that we recommended you to another co-worker and she also purchased a home!!

From the moment I called you Joyce, and now, 10 days from closing... we still hear from your team.

You have covered absolutely every aspect of our home buying experience. We were in total awe, when you indicated that you would arrange for various banks to meet with us in our home in regards to a mortgage, then we could choose which mortgage best suited us.

Then you helped us find a lawyer, you even sent us a detailed list of who to contact in regards to our moving, right down to your hairdresser. It truly has been a pleasure to deal with a well-rounded, well-informed team."

I couldn't have chosen a better real estate agent. Your bubbly personality made us take to you immediately. It made me feel as though I was talking to a good friend rather than a just a real estate agent. The real estate career is definitely the right choice for both Lee and yourself. Pete and I both really found the entire Team extremely personable. I know that was one of the reasons that our daughter decided to use your team for a possible purchase, she felt at ease talking with everyone on the Team".

"If you are wanting to buy or sell or move to London, let me suggest you contact Joyce.  She worked very hard and supplied lots of info and work sheets, etc.  Probably the best realtor we have dealt with and we have had 6 houses.  And if I don't know customer service then who does"!!


KEN HEDGER

"No matter how many times we changed our minds about the house we wanted, you were always available and two steps ahead of us. Eventually, we decided to build a new home and you walked us through all the steps! We would never have been able to choose from all the plans and builders available without her expertise.
We are now proud owners of our dream home!"
