Dave Otto May 2018

I recently had the pleasure of working with Mary - Jo and Leonard on the sale of my home. Initially I was just going to go with the realtor that sold me the place originally. The home behind me had sold in a very sort time frame and way above asking. I discussed the sale with the owner and contacted Leonard. He met with me and we went through the home while we made a list of what needed to be done beforewe went on the market. Now comes the amazing part. Leonard worked with me everyday until the list was complete. He then made a video capturing my home in its finest appearance. It was sold to the first couple that saw the video for full asking price. AMAZING !!! I would highly recommend the team of Mary-Jo and Leonard to list your home and realize top selling price. They are very professional and were a pleasure to work with. Dave Otto

Dear Mary-Jo,

We have had the pleasure of working with a number of realtors who have laboured on our behalf whether we have been buying or selling a home. Some of these realtors have been personal friends and

all seemed to go that extra mile for us.

By comparison, your personal attention and professional service was unlike anything we have

experienced. Your thoughtful service was so exemplary, that we are now convinced that our previous realtors actually did very little.

As you know, the property we just sold was a niche, small two-bedroom house with lots of character. It was these many small features that made the house our home. But we also recognized that for

prospective buyers, many of these features might be less appealing. This did not deter you in the least. In fact, the opposite seemed to be true and when you promised at the outset that you would work very

hard on our behalf, you were true to your word. Quite simply, we have never encountered a realtor who worked harder than you!

You were constructive with your initial suggestions, supportive throughout the selling period, and

solidly optimistic about our outcome. You kept us consistently "in the loop" on a daily basis talking on the phone and by sending emails and texts. Your communications were thoroughly reassuring as you

convinced us that you were totally on the ball and that we were your number one priority; but we suspect that is just how you make all your clients feel.

As it turned out, while you were our realtor, you were also the buyer's realtor. While such dual

relationships may be difficult for some to navigate properly, this was not the case with you and it brings to mind an episode of the TV show Fraser in which Fraser affirmed, "Ethics are what you do when no else is watching." So many times throughout the process, when others weren't watching, you made ethical decision after ethical decision. It is clear to us that you are an honest professional with the

highest levels of integrity! But more than this, you coupled these admirable character traits with exceptional advice, information, and a wealth of real-estate knowledge.

We also wish to thank you for pulling together a dream team of supports. Whether it was the

outstanding video (quite atypical as compared to most other real-estate videos), the high definition professional photographs, or the various inspectors and mortgage brokers you recommended to the buyer, you ensured our success. Quite simply, it was because of your many efforts that we sold our house.

We are truly grateful for all that you have done and should other prospective clients wish to speak with us, we would be happy to chat with them personally.

Having the chance to work with somebody that is willing to go the extra mile for you, in a business where time is of the essence.  This is one of the reasons why I would recommend Mary Jo to anybody that desires to sell or buy a property.  We had some very specific requirements on time lines to sell and buy a property, Mary Jo made it work. Her dedication to us during this process was excellent.  She made us feel important to her and not just a payday.  Mary Jo spent time teaching us all the ins and outs of real estate that we wanted to know.  Looking forward to working with Mary Jo again and her team. We would be willing to give a personal reference upon request. Thanks again Mary Jo!!!!!!!!!!

Reference Letter:

Mary Jo Braid is the kind of realtor who will be at every open house for you, listen and understand your needs, and work both hard and smartly to sell and/or find your home.  We have worked with several different realtors in the past and Mary Jo is by far the best.  What really differentiated MJ was her ability to adapt to our schedule, come up with innovative ideas for marketing our home, and knowing the local market well enough to find us that perfect place and negotiate hard for the a price we wanted.  When the time comes for us to sell our new home or make another property purchase we won't hesitate to go with MJB.
