Dee blew me away! Before I met her, I didn't think very highly of Realtors. Dee broke the mold. It was her and me together as a team searching for the perfect home. We visited every home I asked to see, and more, and together we looked for any possible issues. One Realtor at an open house actually thought we were business partners! When we found the right home, she went out of her way to meet me at work to sign paperwork and she was there for the home inspection and all the walk throughs. The service she provides is above and beyond the call of duty. I wouldn't use any other Realtor.

I'm sure all realtors dread getting to work with a first time buyer, with typically high expectations, minimal reason to move out of the 'parental basement', and low budgets. That was me. Dee was recommended to me via a friend, and I quickly discovered what a solid recommendation it was! Dee didn't treat me any different than any of her clients as a first time buyer. Dee was able to walk me through the offer process 3 times in 3 months, without feeling rushed, or pressured, and I knew that Dee's advice could be trusted. She went the extra mile ensuring I felt comfortable, and confident after one offer fell through in a 'multiple bid situation', and the other offer failing a home inspection. She offered solid advice, while listening to my concerns, and fought for my requests. It's hard finding a realtor that you know will act on your behalf at the negotiating table, while being relaxed enough to not feel like you are dealing with a used-car-salesman-type. But Dee is the real deal, from first showing, to house-warming party. Highly recommended.

Buying our first home, my wife and I were obviously nervous, but Dee is a delight to work with. She is warm, attentive, professional, extremely knowledgeable and made the entire process very easy. All of the homes she found for us met our desired criteria and any of them could have been the one for us, but the one we chose was perfect. Her negotiating skills and persistence were very helpful in achieving a purchase price within our budget. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home.

I never expected to be writing a recommendation for a Realtor, but what Dee did for me was exceptional.

My initial contact with Dee was through my interest in one of her listings, before my previous house was even sold, and my initial impression was that of a professional, but very personable realtor who gave me some sound advice on getting my property sold, even though it was out of her “area”.

When it did sell, it was with a very tight close timeline, and I was now in a situation where I had to find a new home in an area I was unfamiliar with, and fast. No stress at all- just call Dee and say “go”!

She went to work for me, around my tight timeline, when I could schedule to go looking. Showed me the area, all the way in to Peterborough, and since my number one concern was finding a house in the right area for a small child, was able to use her local knowledge of the schools and neighbourhoods to narrow down to the right areas.

There were early starts and late evenings, that required stamina and patience from her that I might not have had.

When we found the house, a modest property on a great lot, which I saw as a “project”- that’s when it really got interesting. Through a great home inspector, again an introduction by Dee, there were issues found- nothing disastrous, but potentially expensive fixes.

I don’t know how she managed to negotiate the terms she did for me. Realtors work on commission, so one would think negotiating the final sale price down so much would be counter-productive for her, but she did it anyway- and how! That shows somebody working FOR their client, not just facilitating house sales. She also managed to negotiate the tight close, which kept me out of a storage unit/double move.

She also went out of her way to look after me on moving day, when a moving truck breakdown made me impossibly late.

So now, we’re in a house we love, in an area we love, and looking forward to showing Dee and John what this home looks like once its potential has been brought out.

If you’re looking for a top Realtor who really works for their client, I’d recommend Dee every time.

Thank you, Dee!

John and Dee did an excellent job in selling our house, communicating frequently with us and keeping us aware of what was going on at all stages of the selling process. We were very pleased with the professional brochure they produced which showcased our home’s features and they were familiar with, and used numerous on-line sites where they were able to advertise our house to a wider market.

We were so impressed with their work it was not a difficult choice to use them in our search for a new home. We were not disappointed as we found our new home four days after the sale of our old home finalized.

All in all it was a great experience dealing with this team who we felt were sincerely motivated (both personally and professionally) in selling our home and finding us THE place we wanted to move to.

Dee Girdler provided exceptional service when it came to selling our house. She truly went above and beyond our expectations in order to sell quickly and at a great price.

Dee showed us that she is extremely knowledgeable in this business and provides a refreshing outlook. While Dee resides in Lindsay, Ontario, and our house was located in Tottenham, Ontario, the distance did not affect our partnership in the slightest.

I highly recommend Dee to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. You will be very pleased with the
top notch service you receive.

Thank you John and Dee for the professional manner in which you handled the listing and sale of my home.  No request was too large or question too small.  Your brochures did an amazing job of depicting the house.  I am so satisfied.

Dear Dee and John

WOW! You know how to sell a home!
I had so many things to worry about, starting a new job, finding a new place to live, packing, moving...and selling a home. I was overwhelmed to say the least! After researching and interviewing a few prospective realtors, I picked your "team" to sell my home. This was the first and best decision of my new adventure!
From our initial meeting, you were prepared, professional and showed genuine concern for my needs. Dee showed me how you were going to sell/promote my property & John "showed me the money!". Dee's gorgeous Feature Sheets caught my eye immediately. Then John shared comparables that made coming up with an asking price easy. What I appreciated most, was that you did not ask me to sink more money into my home, just let it sell it with its current upgrades in a clean and tidy state. Not feeling pressured to fix things eased my mind
Right from the get-go I liked your style! No pressure sales tactics, you let your previous sales record speak for itself.
Thanks again for selling my house in less than 2 weeks so I was ready/able to buy my dream home!

"We recently bought and sold homes using John Beukeboom and Dee Girdler as our realtors. We have had numerous experiences with the purchase and sale of eight homes using a variety of real estate agents. By far, we feel that John and Dee stood out amongst them. We found that they were knowledgeable and honest. They were always available at any time of the day. They treated us like family not just like clients. We highly recommend John and Dee and would have no hesitation using their services again."

I had had occasion to employ John Beukeboom in an earlier real estate transaction so I had no hesitation in calling upon John to help me sell my house in Lindsay. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I was going to be represented not by John alone but by a team of John and Dee Girdler. In very little time I was given a suggested selling price and my team put together an appealing presentation of my property which quickly appeared on several Internet sites. Rather than waiting for advertising alone to find a buyer, John and Dee early on had two Open Houses which were well attended. In a matter of just a few weeks. John and Dee brought to me an offer for the full asking price. I'm moving in less than a month.

I would highly recommend John and Dee to anyone seeking to buy or sell a property,

Bill Richardson

 We found John and Dee to be very efficient and a pleasure to work with.  They sold our home rapidly with little inconvenience and we would highly recommend them.
