In all of my interactions with Collette, she is always exceptionally prepared, ensuring she has all of the information based on the criteria I have presented to her, whether buying or selling a home.

Aristotle said, "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." So describes Collette
When my family and I were soon to move to Toronto, I was lucky enough to meet Collette at one of her listings in North York. After several transfers from Winnipeg, Calgary and Ottawa, our move to Toronto was daunting due to our lack of knowledge of the city and the cost differential from smaller markets.
Collette was able to expertly answer my many questions and, as a result, we chose her to be our agent in our Toronto search. I warned Collette that we would not be easy clients as we like to look at many listings to better understand neighborhoods and styles of homes. My wife, in particular, is very discriminating and wouldn't be satisfied without virtually everything on her priority list.
Collette was up for the challenge and did a fantastic job of informing us of and demonstrating the various strengths of different neighborhoods. With Collette's help we chose a home with a large lot in Willowdale and have been very pleased. Collette's assistance didn't just stop with the sale, she was able to provide advice and referrals when we wanted to install a swimming pool, build a fence and do various cosmetic changes to our new home.
Collette has also helped my retired in-laws buy a condominium in a nearby neighborhood. They were very pleased with her help throughout their search.
Collette showed incredible knowledge, patience and humor throughout the entire process. I particularly appreciated her tough negotiating skills when it came to making the plunge into Toronto's expensive real estate market.
I wholeheartedly recommend Collette to anyone in search of a terrific agent.

My two grown up children and I have been buying and selling property through Collette for the last 12 years. In that time we have found Collette to be a person of integrity, and always acting very much in our interest, never pressuring us and at times with infinite patience as we dithered in our choices!
Collette was most supportive and always responsive to our requests and all done in the most pleasant manner. It has been a pleasure working with Collette, and it is our intent in future transactions, to utilize her services once again.

We appreciated your honesty as to what we could reasonably expect to receive for our old home, as well as the efforts you put in to generate showings for the home. When it came time to look at new homes, we noted how carefully you listened to what our objectives were, as well as to what our budget restraints were. You were patient as you showed us a number of listings and guided us through various showings. Thanks to your efforts we felt well educated, and never pressured.
Collette's actions were quick and thorough. Her work was completed with our interests in mind at all times. The property sold in a very short time. I have no hesitation in recommending Collette as a Realtor.
