“When selling my parents’ condominium, it was essential to have good advice and support from someone we liked and trusted.  For me, being from out of town, it was imperative that we hired a real estate agent that communicated with care and understanding to my elderly parents’ needs.

Karen Kessel exceeded our expectations.  Behind the scenes, Karen’s attention to detail and determination of work is what proved in the end to be the main ingredient to our successful sale.”  J.C. (Toronto)

“It was a pleasure dealing with you, you made what could have been a trying time go through quickly without a hitch.  It is now one less thing my Dad has to worry about.  Thanks again.”  M.G. (Ajax)
