Testimonials from my past clients!
We have know Keeley Ward for several years. She has helped us twice in purchase negotiations with new-home builders, and has recently
represented us in the sale of our home. Her competence, integrity and
grace made us feel very secure during what is, without a doubt, a
stressful and involved process. She knows her market extremely well; she is diligent, responsive, and patient. We found her to be not only very professional but also very personable. Her good humour, understanding and diplomacy made her a true delight to work with. Her insights and expertise helped immeasurably during negotiations. Keeley was able to sell our home in just FIVE DAYS, and got us considerably more than our asking price.
We are happy to give Keeley our highest recommendation for anyone
desiring to sell their property or to buy one. You'll be glad that you
chose to work with her!
-Sincerely, Sandy and Bill Hayes
Sold in 2 days for more than asking!!
We had Keeley Ward, Century 21, represent us in selling our home recently. She is strong, diplomatic and personable. So, when a particular, rude buyer's agent was here. Keeley dealt with him a very professional and firm manner and sent him on his way. This agent could easily brow beat you into a lower price but Keeley did not allow it .
Then, knowing the market, wording the listing just right, Keeley got our home into a bidding war. We got more than the asking price 2 days after listing.
You want top dollar, get Keeley Ward.
Thanks for everything!
-Erik and Susan Morke
Dear Keeley: I cannot believe the house is sold! I thank you so very much for the effort and hard work, that made t his sale possible! It is two months ago that we sat down in the dining room in the late summer's warmth and discussed the pricing of the house. I had checked with one other agent shortly afterward, and compared ideas. You were by far much more organized, and knowledgeable. I trusted your judgement in the pricing and the eventual re-pricing of the house. When an offer came in that was low-balled by some $43,000, I admit I was skeptical and upset. You were able to steer me through these tense moments, until a mutually agreed upon sale price was reached - close to my asking price! That we had less than 2 weeks to finalize and move out of the house, created more tension, and again you offered your off-time help in getting the house in order for the new owners! Without your help, this whole deal would have fallen through!
You are skilled and proficient in what you do, and it is evident that you love doing real estate work. I would hire you at the drop of a hat if a future house sale became imminent in our lives. Thank you for not only a job well done, but for a job in which you went beyond your call of duty to ensure that your client was totally satisfied with the deal. Congratulations, and please forward this letter to your Managers. You are a credit to you company! God bless!

This is the second house Keeley has assisted me with purchasing. My first house I purchased on my own and it was absolutely perfect! Not only was it perfect, she found it the first day I began looking and it was purchased on the spot. My 'wish list' for that house was challenging and everything on that list was in the house. Then, when I decided to sell, she had it sold within approximately a week and a half firm - a new record for this condominium complex!
The second house that we just purchased is for my fiance and I. We both had different items on our 'wish lists' so instead of taking one day of viewings, it took her two days (we honestly thought that it was going to take months!). She probably would have found it on our first day of viewings but it was not yet on the market. The second the listing was published, she found it and emailed me within minutes. We were the first viewing on the house and we purchased it that night. Our new house is more than perfect and we cannot wait to begin our lives together in it!
We cannot thank Keeley enough for everything that she has done for us. She truly is a remarkable person and her dedication to her clients and their needs cannot be surpassed.
Thanks again Keeley, we are now embarking on the next chapter of our lives together and we are so very happy that you were apart of it.

We first met Keeley during an open house that we went through. We decided at that time that we would use Keeley as our agent when we made the decision to purchase a home together. We seemed to "click" with her immediately. Finally about 6 or 7 months later we decided to go ahead and start the process with an agent so we contacted her and got together.
Keeley asked our likes/dislikes, must haves, don't wants, asked about location preferences, needs for our kids, etc., etc. We easily found a house to fit all of our needs. The hard part (or so we thought) was selling both of our homes with the same closing date of the new house. Apparently it wasn't all that hard! Keeley made everything easy...for US! If there was anything to worry about, she did it for us. She was knowledgeable about the financial aspect, as well as knowing a lot about the trades people to contact if/when we needed them. Keeley made the process easy and smooth for us all.
It was fun working with Keeley, now I believe we've also become friends. I would recommend Keeley Ward to others (and have) who are thinking of purchasing a home.

Kandas and I are so grateful for everything you have done for us. We just purchased our first house and it is all thanks to you Keeley. We both had ideas of what we wanted and you put everything together and found us the perfect little place we will be calling home.
- Kandas and Krista Thibault
Dear Keeley, I wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you for all you did for Wayne and me. When you told us what we could get for our house, we were skeptical, and you got us full asking. When you said it would sell fast, we weren't as positive as you, multiple offers in 6 days! You were there to help us every step of the way with what could have been a very difficult time and you made it so easy. I can't wait to work with you again, and expect to hear from us in late spring.! Thank you again for all you did for us.

Some of these will include The Motorcycle Ride For Dad (prostate cancer), the Heroes Highway Ride (Wounded Warriors fund), Realtors Care Ride which supports hospitals and care services throughout Ontario!
The Motorcycle Ride For Dad is particularly important to me as I had lost my own Dad, my Hero, to this dreadful disease. As my Dad was responsible for introducing me to the wonderful world of motorcycling at the young age of 5, I find this event, and the day the perfect tribute to my wonderful Dad. Last year your contributions helped us raise over $32,000 here in the Durham Region alone. This organization has raised more than $11 million dollars in the past 7 years and we will continue to fight this disease. I hope that you will support me with your contributions once again this year as they are all greatly appreciated!
Staging Your Home For Sale!
You can use these top 12 staging tips to ensure that your home has it's best face forward, which will encourage buyers to pay top dollar! Properly staged homes sell twice as fast as those that are cluttered or in disrepair!
- Organize or Donate: Get rid of any items that you no longer need or need to throw out! Otherwise you will just have clutter!
- Clean reflective surfaces: When reflective surfaces are not clean, the light no longer bounces off. Instead they attract the eye to the dust and grime. Clean windows inside and out, plus any other surfaces that reflect light such as mirrors, glass tables, refridgerators, counter tops and art.
- Depersonalize the space: Pare down on things like family photos, the kids' artwork, even personal hygiene items in the bathroom or bedroom such as hair products and medications. Buyers need to be able to imagine their family living there.
- Be aware of items which could cause offense: Buyer's don't want to see nude art, religious icons or even religious holiday decor. Also try to remove any pets and pet odours for viewings.
- Complete minor repairs: Missing trim, damaged drywall, chipped paint - these small repairs that can district the buyer's eyes from the positives of your home should be fixed.
- Keep it neutral: There are some beautiful colours available with which to decorate, but neutral sades will appeal to the largest number of buyers.
- Be aware of traffic flow: Furniture needs to welcome buyers into the space. Place it so buyers can easily navigate through a room, and through doors and up stairways.
- Create strong focal points: Place something on a wall opposite an entrance to draw the buyers into the room. A simple one is to create a shelf or cabinet with a piece of striking artwork placed directly over it.
- Be aware of sight lines: Be careful that your furniture arrangement doesn't stop the eye or make the room appear smaller. For example, a folding screen or tall piece of furniture in the middle of the room will block the buyers from the rest of the room.
- Use proper lighting: Good lighting can make a room. Turn on all lights in the house before showings. Use "daylight" bulbs to throw the best light.
- Be sure the room shows its intended use: If there is a room in the house being used as an office, perhaps it would show better as an additional bedroom.
- Remember to enhance the critical areas: Be sure to attend to the critical areas - curb appeal, entry, kitchens and bathrooms.
