We would like to say that we are very happy with your help and service in the selling of the family cottage due to your experience in real estate in particular for cottage sales in the area.    You were very knowledgeable and helpful in finding the right buyer for Hans' cottage. Thank you.

Many thanks Lee for all your work in finding us our ‘classic cottage’ in Minden.  You were very patient with us as we refined our search on a budget, and learned the realities of the market in 2016/2017.  Your advice was clear, honest, and very much appreciated – we were supported with integrity and strong knowledge of the area and the business of real estate.  We realize that you put in a tremendous amount of work in order to get us to properties, and support our offer on the final, successful bid.  Thank you again – we would recommend you to anyone looking for a property in the Haliburton Highlands!

I have known Lee for 18 years since she sold my wife and I this home. She has just sold this house for me and I can attest to the fact that her work ethic is beyond reproach and her knowledge of the Haliburton real estate market beyond question. She has great integrity, is dedicated, hard working and approaches her work with a positive and encouraging attitude. Lee will not be satisfied until she meets your needs. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home.

We asked Lee to come to our cottage in 2009 for advice. We had some major foundation work to do and wondered if we’d get our money out of our property should we want to sell it in the future. On her expert advice we went ahead with renovations in 2010, and called her in the fall of 2015 in preparation for selling in the spring of 2016. She listed it in late March and in early June our cottage sold for close to the asking price. The closing date was also arranged so that our family could enjoy it for one last July. Our cottage had been in our family for 69 years and it was a big, and sad, decision to let it go. Lee has a knack for putting the right properties and people together. We had the opportunity to meet the new owners and we know they will love our cottage as we have. Lee helped us transition through a difficult decision and come out happy on the other side!

After making the decision in May 2016 to move to British Columbia, we contacted Lee about listing our Haliburton property. Lee gave us excellent advice on how to ready our home for sale and listed our property at the beginning of September. Lee advertised our home in the local papers, held an Open House and gave us prompt feedback on all viewings. Our home sold within 3 weeks with a closing date perfect for our BC plans. We found Lee to be very efficient, knowledgeable and pleasant in all our dealings and would not hesitate to recommend her to prospective buyers or sellers.

This past summer <2015> I was looking for a property between Haliburton and Bancroft.  I contacted Lee after reading her profile on her website and I was not disappointed.  Despite my small budget, Lee was most attentive to my needs and very details oriented.  I felt she was more concerned about finding a house that I would love and not just about making a quick sale.  If you want truly personal service with an agent that really listens and understands your needs, I highly recommend contacting Lee to help you find your next home.

In 2010 I had the pleasure of working with Lee when buying a lovely property on Halls Lake. When it came time for me to sell the property in 2015 I had no hesitation in going back to Lee to list it.  Lee was extremely professional and very patient with the prospective buyer who was highly detail-oriented and new to life in the country. She is very knowledgeable and ethical in all her business dealings. I would not hesitate to ask her to list a property or represent me to buy a property in the future.

Dear Lee & Dagmar

We have always dreamed of owning a piece of "heaven" but thought it wouldn't happen for a few years yet.  This summer we stopped by your office to inquire about a place we saw.  you sat and listened to all our requirements and made some suggestions.  After touring a few properties, we figured we would have to wait a few more years.  Dagmar was great, showing us a couple and agreeing with us when we were not too keen on them.  No such thing as pressure sales with the two of you.  Much to our surprise, we got a phone call, asking us to view one more property.  Driving up the long driveway I had my doubts.  It turned out to be just what we wanted and in our price range.  We now own that piece of paradise.

Lee and Dagmar, you guys went above and beyond.  Even introducing us to previous customers that live nearby, welcoming us to Carnarvon.  Thank you again for making our dreams come true.  We tell our friends of your dedication to your profession and your friendly manner.

Dave & Laura
