TESTIMONIALS

 "I worked with Bill to sell my house in Sault Ste. Marie in the summer of 2015.  I had to sell my house in a hurry in order to relocate for work.   Bill very enthusiastically took on marketing my house, giving me ideas about how best to present it,  and providing me with reference material that made me comfortable with setting an asking price.  Bill actively engaged in finding buyers, and promoted my house at every opportunity. The house sold at the price I was hoping for, and all completed within a few weeks. I was very happy with how things turned out and would not hesitate to recommend Bill to my friends." — Rian Schwarz

"We have never made a testimonial like this before but we would like to share our experience anyway. We were living in an apartment for years and found ourselves in a unique situation for us. A combination of our small savings and our income tax return opened a door of opportunity to put together a down payment on a house. We started looking at the listings online and one that was really outstanding in content and appeal was by Bill Montague. We didn't know him but, first appearances showed him to be kind, knowledgeable and sincerely interested in his clients, and it was all true. We contacted Bill and he came right over that same day. He talked to us about our circumstances, we explained what we wished we could get in a home and our budget. And Bill was very helpful. He helped us understand exactly what was involved in buying a house. He went out of his way to make us feel important. We looked at homes together and we found him to be very professional. He even helped us get an inspection done on the house! Bill helped us find exactly what we were looking for in a home. Every step of the way he was with us and gave us confidence that we were making the right decision. Now we have a new house and we love it! Looking back on the whole experience, I have no regrets. When and if I need to upgrade to another house or simply move, I will only call one person, Bill Montague." — Pat & Amy Dawson  

 

"Bill had the task of selling a very difficult property for us. It was a nice home with a beautiful interior, however it was in a difficult location with a stone basement, no yard and undesirable neighbours.  He was unrelenting.  He did not lose interest in our property. He held multiple open houses, he worked from his vacation in Florida, he ran social media and print ads and he had an endless number of people come through to view it. He believed that there was a buyer and he worked tirelessly to find one for us.  It did not happen overnight but he did find a buyer who offered us our asking price and facilitated a quick and trouble free closing.  Bill was new to the role but worked with passion and commitment and we will always be grateful that he helped us find the perfect home for our family." — Kim Boudreau

 
"I was fortunate in engaging Bill Montague to be my real estate agent in September of 2015.  Bill took my "wish list" to heart and did not show me properties that were outside of this as well as being considerate of my budget.   He was professional, courteous and in particular timely.   He had the ability to show me houses at my convenience.  Negotiation was fair with my best interests at heart.  All of the paperwork and assistance with the whole process was smooth! Bill also assisted my brother in the sale of his home.  He obtained the highest sale price in that neighbourhood  in over three years! If you are looking to buy or to sell Bill at Century 21 is the Man!" — Lori Reed 

"Bill was referred to me by a friend in Sault Ste. Marie. I was relocating, and needed to sell my house in a reasonable period of time, in what was not the best market. Bill and I negotiated a selling price and he consulted with me frequently during the process. I will say that he put a lot of people through the house, and the result was a sale at a fair price in a reasonable time. You wont find a harder working agent than Bill." — Dr. Anthony Hopkin,Victoria BC
