You took me on a thorough search, and worked with me to zero in on what would be suitable for me. And we found it! Once we found the one, you guided me through the negotiation process extremely well and I'm very happy with the outcomes -- not only of the price, but the of house itself. Several of my new neighbors have welcomed me to the neighborhood. It is so good to have found a beautiful home in a good area of town. I think this will be home for quite a long time. There aren't enough words in the English language to express to you my full thanks for your help.
Rich and I are very excited about our new house. I think it’s the perfect house for us!
He was impressed with her hard work and dedication to the clients she was serving. So when the time came for us to sell our home, we called Suzanne. She has great insight for what prospective buyers are looking for, and she made our home look like a million bucks, by simply moving some furniture around. Suzanne was very professional and kept us up-to-date on the market situation in our area and in the end, helped us to get the sale price that we needed. When the time comes for us to re-enter the housing market, we will most definitely be calling Suzanne to help us find our dream home.
We became acquainted with Suzanne, when she contacted us to express an interest in our home on behalf of a potential buyer. Our home was not listed for sale but Suzanne took the initiative and made the contact. That contact translated into a reasoned, researched and very fair Offer to Purchase our home. Offer on the table, we enlisted Suzanne to help us find a new home. Fate could not have offered us a more qualified, motivated and personable agent. Suzanne connects with people. She listened carefully to our needs and swiftly, accurately narrowed the field of potential homes. She was well versed on the features of each property that we viewed, able to address the quality of local schools, the nature of the community, plans for regional development and investment potential, among other critical information. She was knowledgeable about the structural workings of a home, from electrical, to plumbing, to septic, and skillfully addressed all of our questions in relation to the same. What impressed us most about Suzanne was her willingness to go above and beyond our requests and our expectations. If we had a question, she would take the initiative, do additional research and provide us with valuable, detailed information as to our concerns. She brought great strategic insight and formidable negotiating skills to the bargaining table. Within weeks of our meeting Suzanne, we found and purchased a home that we love. The icing on the cake was that we had the privilege of working with someone who takes pride in her performance, offers exceptional service and truly connects with her clients. We are more than grateful to her for all that she has done for us.
I will certainly recommend you if the need arises. I really appreciated your honesty and the great job you did for us.
Your gift basket was spectacular and we just wanted to let you know that it is very much appreciated and everything will be used with found memories of what a wonderful job you and your team have done in selling our house. You and your team made the process if selling our home less stressful and we are grateful for this. You are a first Class Realtor and Lady all the way, it has been a pleasure meeting and working with you.
We were given a deadline to sell our home, so the pressure was immediate in this market. We had heard of Suzanne through some friends, and were told that her motivation and assistance in any market was incessant. She introduced herself not as an agent, but as part of the team that it was going to take to sell our home. Once we signed on, the flurry of preparations and staging suggestions were only shadowed by her absolute assuredness that we would sell within our deadline. A few weeks passed and two more homes were now on the market literally within steps from our own. In a rural community, that worried us. That is when Suzanne really turned up the heat. The bottom line is, our home was sold well before the other two, and well within our deadline! Her honesty, and relentless perseverance throughout the process is what sold our home...period. Again, if you really want to sell your home, and you want to see a real professional agent in action, you may want to give Suzanne a call. You will not be sorry!
You really touched my heart with the present and I am very happy that when we made the decision to sell I didn't make a mistake. I always believed in you. Thank you from Elsie and the rest of my team.
I liked the way Suzanne responded to our questions. After we had met in person, I knew she was the right person for us. We were looking for someone who would work hard and be aggressive! Suzanne sold our home in 6 days and found us our new home in 2 days later; she works late into the evening and starts early the next day. Suzanne is also great with 'staging'.
I highly recommend her!
Now came the task of finding a good realtor. Well that task didn't take long, as we met a great realtor in Suzanne Picard, and after giving Suzanne our want list she quickly went to work and in no time at all, found us the house of our dreams. Suzanne was super friendly to work with and knows the Barrie area very well. Her eye for detail and house knowledge helped us get not only the house we were looking for, but finding it in the perfect neighborhood as well. Making the biggest investment of your life, you want a realtor in your corner that is knowledgeable and caring and Suzanne was that person for us. Her level of professionalism, and customer service was amazing, we even recommend Suzanne to our family. Thanks again Suzanne.
We have had moments of uncertainty and absolute joy. We have had some quick transactions all the way to still hammering it out until the wee hours of the evening. Through it all I have to say I would trust no one like I do Suzanne. She is as understanding and patient as she is knowledgeable and professional. I would truly encourage anyone to call her and trust her with all your Real Estate needs.
We appreciated her help and her honesty. She was and is prepared to go above and beyond to help. Suzanne staged our home beautifully and worked very hard to sell out home. Thanks to Royal Lepage and particularly Suzanne. She was very aware of our situation and made every effort to be as considerate as possible.
The guidance and personal attention we received from Suzanne was exceptional and unexpected. She is truly a high-caliber realtor. Her knowledge of the local market, her commitment to looking after our interest and her passion helped us in our search for our dream home. After exploring multiple listings and patiently wading through details of the realty market with us, Suzanne made sure we got the best value purchase for our new home as well as matched our needs to the homes we viewed. We would highly recommend Suzanne to anyone with this life-altering endeavor! We could not have asked for a better realtor to guide us through the process. What better to have a realtor who is professional, injects fun into the search and is truly looking after your best interest. There are not many realtors that will take the high heels off, kneel down on a cold cement floor in her business attire to do her inspector Clouseau to recognize that there has been previous water damage! In addition, there are not many realtors that you would feel compelled to invite over to your new home for dinner and a glass of wine? Suzanne however is definitely that realtor!
When Suzanne knocked on our door to inquire about the possible sale of our home we were very hesitant, but as you will see from this testimonial, Suzanne made the whole process very smooth and easy. As skeptical as we were, Suzanne remained true to her word and sold our home within 1 week and for $10,000 more than we had originally asked for. During that week that our home was listed with Suzanne and Royal LePage, we were kept informed, Suzanne touched base with us each day to let us know what was happening and what her line of action was. We felt completely at ease and confident with Suzanne's ability to target the correct market and sell our home. I would not hesitate to use Suzanne's services again if I were to sell another home and I am confident that you will have the same positive experience as her Client.
It definitely was an uphill battle, but we honestly don't know if it would have come to fruition without your perserverance, tenacity and professional instinct. We are forever grateful to you for making our dreams come true! Warmest Thanks!
I have completed multiple real estate transactions in the past and never had the service as provided by Suzanne. I was actually amazed at her dedication and professionalism. Suzanne was always available, professional, punctual and pleasant. I was pleased with her work and will not hesitate to use her services in the future. Not only do I have a great Realtor, I have a new friend.
Suzanne was the first Agent we met with and after meeting with Suzanne we were so impressed with her professionalism and friendly approach that we did not need to meet with any other Agents. Suzanne continued to offer helpful suggestions and advise through the sale of our home. She always put any concerns at ease. We would highly recommend Suzanne's service and her abilities to really capture the qualities of our home and working with us. Much thanks!
From your first phone call through to closing the deal, the level of service you provided was excellent. The time you invested with us in fact finding to narrow down our search, personally hunting down homes you felt would meet our needs and continuous follow up to ascertain that we were on the right path all contributed to an overall exceptional experience. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to any friends or relatives in need of your services. Thanks, again. We love our new home!
Suzanne is very professional, a great communicator, provided sound advise and has tremendous knowledge about real estate and housing. I greatly enjoyed working with Suzanne and as a single mother, I felt safe in any area she suggested to me to find a home. She is a GEM!
We also had a lot of fun with you & a great experience buying our first home.
She was so professional, knowledgeable and friendly that she inspired confidence. Selling the house became a project with Suzanne as the manager. I followed her advice in preparing my home for marketing and we consulted together on the listing price. Suzanne took pictures throughout the house and prepared a full-colour brochure as well as a DVD and an on-line tour. My house was marketed through the MLS system both locally and in the Toronto area, on Suzanne's website, in the local newspaper and through open houses. I really liked the presentation. When we received an offer to purchase Suzannes advice and guidance through the negation process was bang on. The final sale price was exactly the amount l wanted and the entire process, from listing to final sale, took only 2 ? weeks. I am pleased to recommend Suzanne to anyone wanting to sell their home. Her knowledge, information and professionalism make a difficult process as easy as possible.
We gave her our wish list, our price range and the area in Barrie that we wanted to look in. She sent us numerous listing via e-mail, which was great because it gave us a good idea of what was available in South Barrie. It was also helpful in that we could easily select houses that we wanted to view. Within a week of contacting Suzanne, she found us the perfect home. As first time home buyers, she answered any and all questions that we had. Suzanne was also helpful with a list of house inspectors and lawyers to use in Barrie as we were moving from out of town. We would highly recommended to Suzanne to friends and family if they were to move.
She still managed to surprise me -- my house sold in less than a week for slightly more than 98% of the asking price. Suzanne was always available for questions, gave me great advice and her guidance concerning furniture placement, etc. was invaluable and probably instrumental in the quick sale. She is, quite simply, the best Agent I have ever had.
We came in Barrie for a house hunting trip from 1st to 7th of May 2011; she was patient, devoted and very reliable. She successfully found a suitable home for our family in such a short period of time. It was a great pleasure to have Suzanne as our realtor. We will surely consider having her as our realtor in the future.
I received great reviews about Suzanne from my daughter when she purchased her first home and I knew she would be perfect with her professionalism, “common sense approach” and knowledge that my deal would be a smooth one. Suzanne was always a phone call away if I had a concerns. My house was a rental property and extra patience and understanding had to be met. Suzanne stepped up to the plate to tackle any unforeseen issues that would affect the sale of my property. Suzanne was very knowledgeable of the LTA as well as the current market value. She gave great advice when needed and didn’t overstep her boundaries when working with other agents. I would highly recommend Suzanne to anyone who would like a positive, smooth and rewarding experience when selling and purchasing a home! MANY, MANY THANKS. L. Rossi (Barrie)
This is our first time buying a house but I think that you went above and beyond for us. I will definitely recommend you to anyone buying in Barrie.
I think our situation was difficult and extended. She was always professional and her level of service was excellent and unwavering.
ca while I was looking for an agent to sell my house in Barrie. When I first contacted Suzanne she came over right away and I showed her the house that I intended to list, she gave me some good advice and offered to finish some painting and some landscaping that I had not finished while my time why critical. She was updating me almost every day on the activities, showings and feed-back received. In fact when some other people in Barrie were looking for a house to buy I recommended them to call Suzanne because I know she can find the type of the house that they can call home. Suzanne Picard is very professional real estate agent, extremely knowledgeable, hard working and a pleasure to work with.
We were familiar with Royal LePage Realty since it has been in business for many years but we had not used them or you, their agent, for any previous sales or purchases. We have moved many times, worked with many good real estate agents, and have garnered a great deal of experience in selling and purchasing properties. Based on this, please accept this letter as an educated testament to your abilities as our agent. Not only did you provide us with realistic information regarding pricing, staging, and negotiating, you did it in a caring, non-judgemental way, always remembering that it was our home you were dealing with. You represented us from day one in a thoughtful and professional manner and we became a team focussed on a quick sale and a reasonable price. Timing and luck likely played a role in having our home sold within 10 days, but your expertise was certainly the catalyst. You produced excellent sales material, including a beautiful bound booklet and a professional DVD highlighting the features of our home. Your negotiating skills are top notch and resulted in a fair price for us and the buyer. We could not be happier with the results. We have recommended you to a neighbour and to a relative of ours who will be moving in the immediate future and we would not have done that if we were not completely confident in you and your expertise. Thank you for everything you have done for us. Good luck in your career.
Your presentation of the home and attention to detail was wonderful and I can't tell you how appreciative I am that you could work around my crazy schedule getting the amendments and paperwork completed. Your time and consideration for the needs of the sellers and myself made this big decision, go by with much more ease than I expected. It was a pleasure to work with you and I would highly recommended your services to anyone I know who is looking to buy or sell. Thank you again I wish you all the best.
She is extremely knowledgeable, hard-working, a pleasure to work with and always made us feel like she had our best interests at heart. We had some very specific and difficult criteria to meet and Suzanne found us our dream home in a timely fashion and within budget. She went above and beyond and also recommended a contractor to do the renovations we needed.
She was with me every step of the way. Suzanne is the only Realtor I will ever work with. I couldn't be happier with my home and I owe that to her that I have it!
Kids loved it and were very excited. Danny was happy too, Stella is his favourite beer lol. We really appreciate it and thank you for all that you and your team have done for our family. You all are amazing and I will without a doubt recommend you to my family and friends as always. Have a great day, will keep in touch!
She did a terrific job on listing and selling our property. Suzanne's excellent communication, presentation and selling skills where much appreciated by all parties involved especially in our case it being an Estate Sale. Suzanne worked hard at keeping a constant flow of people interested in the property, eventually selling at 98% of the asking price! We highly recommend Suzanne for all your real estate needs and we would not hesitate using Suzanne again.
He has been very pleased with your level of professionalism, the amount of research you do in determining what our needs are and what the current housing environment offers. It didn't take you long to determine what we liked, didn't like and what we would hope to have. You put yourself in our shoes and looked for houses through our eyes. We are very happy in our new home and very often thank you for going the extra mile in negotiating the deal between the private seller and ourselves. We have told our friends about the amazing service you provide and hope that they will benefit from everything that you bring to the table. We joke with you that our day is just not complete without a call or email from you, but it is this constant communication that makes you the success that you are. We hope that even though your 'job' with us is over, we hope that we can still call you a friend and keep in touch
You made yourself readily available on some very short notice calls and you always had your homework done, informing us on the property, legalities, precautions we should consider. We are grateful to you for that. Suzanne, you were also a negotiator extraordinaire! Your strong communicative skills came in handy numerous times! We are loving our new home!
The booklets that she developed for our property and the virtual tour she produced were top notch. She was open and honest in all communications with us. We felt that we received the best representation possible.
We received top notch service from Suzanne. She was knowledgeable, professional, enthusiastic and very committed to selling our home and exceeding our expectations. Very impressed! I would recommend Suzanne.
You are so knowledgeable and professional, and we would gladly recommend your services to anyone. We are so happy and excited to have found the perfect house for us. We will never forget everything you have done to help us get there.
