Client Testimonials

Francis was recommended to us through a close friend and this is our way of thanking him for all of his hard work and help in buying and then selling our first home. His real estate knowledge is remarkable! In searching for our first home he was pivotal in helping us purchase a good quality home for our growing family, and he taught us what to look for along the way to make it a great investment as well as a great home. His customer service was outstanding, he always got back to us within a timely manner, which helped keep my stress level to a minimum! And when it came to selling that home 6 years later he was just as great! Especially at helping set our expectations and teaching us what selling our home was all about. He is an absolute pleasure to work with and my husband and I would confidently recommend Francis to anyone looking for a great realtor who is really there for the customer. Thank you for everything. ~ Allison & Owen
With Francis' help we have bought two homes - sold one, and if and when the time comes to buy or sell, there's only one number that I would call. Service ... Fantastic service. Responses were always timely and always made himself available when necessary. Comfort ... Francis never tried to influence our decisions during the whole process and offered great advice relating to every property seen. He took the time to fully understand what we were looking for through discussions and over multiple viewings. Knowledge ... He showed in depth knowledge of the market, various city wide locations and it seemed as if he had researched the properties viewed prior to taking us there. Seldom could he not answer any questions relating to the property or location. Referral ... During the complete process from property searching to final sale we felt completely comfortable that we were dealing with someone that had our best interests at heart, aggressively trying to find the right property in the right location with no application of pressure on us until we felt absolutely sure it was what WE wanted. Attention to demands and responsiveness at any time only helped to add to the impression we were dealing with someone ultimately trying to find us the perfect home. ~ Jamie Merritt

As a director of a fast paced machine shop I had found it difficult to find a realtor I could rely on for my needs personally and professionally. Francis met both requirements head on, he was there when I called, had answers to questions needing them, and all in a very comfortable way. While I was on holiday in Australia he finalised the purchase of my current house and completed the selling of my old property while I was in the US on business. This was never viewed as a hindrance for Francis it was taken in his stride. To me, that makes the difference in selecting the right guy for the job. When the time came we called for his assistance with our Daughter and her first home purchase, again Francis came through, anytime night or day. On a professional note Francis has gone above and beyond in taking overseas workers around the city for me, in his time and on his dime. Another reason he is my go to guy when it comes to real estate. ~ Martin Usher

We had been looking for a home for quite some time (we were very specific in what we were looking for) and had contact with a couple of realtors. We went to see one of Francis' listings and although that one didn't suit us he asked if we were working with another realtor and if not, would we like him to help us. We gave him some detaials of what we were looking for and from then on it was so much easier. He only showed us homes that suited our needs and requirements. He actually made the process 'fun'! It took a couple of months to find "exactly" what we wanted, but we could always depend on him and never felt rushed to buy something. I did recommend Francis to a couple of our friends and would do the same again without hesitation. ~ Denise Kennedy
Francis was our realtor when we purchased our home June, 2010. He made the huge decision of buying a home feel very relaxed, simple and easy. He told us that we would look at as many places as it took to find what we needed. We gave Francis a list of neighbourhoods and from that point we just trusted his knowledge. He took the time to research exactly what we were looking for. We felt very comfortable with him and there was never any pressure to buy a certain house. Francis was always there for us when we had questions and he always got back to us with answers. My husband and I would highly recommend Francis to friends and family looking to buy or sell a home. ~ Nicola & Derek Hutchins
