My brother, sister and I recently sold our family home of 62 years in Toronto. We could not have done it so successfully and with such ease without the help of our Royal Lepage real estate agent, Patricia Connell.
At our first meeting, Patricia gave us a clear outline of the many steps involved in the selling of a house, and at the end of the process she told us exactly what had to be done for the closing. Throughout we had a good working relationship with Patricia. She willingly listened to our ideas and suggestions and we, of course, listened to hers.
Patricia had a plan of action and kept to it. This included keeping us informed of other houses in the area comparable to ours, hiring an experienced photographer who arranged her photos of the house in an attractive virtual tour, making sure that the virtual tour and verbal description of the house were readily and widely available on the Internet, contacting numerous agents, going door-to-door handing out pamphlets advertising the sale of the house, and talking enthusiastically with prospective buyers.
Patricia went beyond the call of duty! She helped us with the huge task of organizing and disposing of the contents of the house, advised us on how to make the house more sales worthy and encouraged us when our spirits were flagging or when a task seemed unachievable.
Patricia Connell is a spirited and resourceful person. She works hard and cheerfully, radiating good will and positive energy. My brother, sister and I felt blessed both to get to know her as a person and to witness her skills as a fine real estate agent. A very talented lady!
We have never encountered a realtor who works harder than she does. She continually goes above and beyond in every respect. Her knowledge, expertise and attention to detail gave us 100% confidence throughout the entire process. We have done many real estate transactions before and she is hands down the best realtor that we have ever worked with.

We want you to know how much we appreciated your help in selling our house. It was so wonderful to work with you as you were so knowledgeable and friendly. It was always a pleasure to meet with you. Selling a house is stressful so it really was important to us that we could have complete confidence in your advice. We always relied on your expertise. We will highly recommend you to everyone.

"Patricia is dedicated. She fits herself into your world and makes buying and selling a home seem like an easy thing to do on an average day. It's not work, it's fun and energizing.
• Patricia is a people person. She knows her client. She doesn't learn about you through a questionnaire. She learns about you by listening to your voice, watching your body language and asking little questions that blend in conversation so that you feel like an important friend, not a client.
• Patricia values time. Yours and hers. She makes the most of every minute, and yet you don't feel rushed. Every conversation has a purpose and you always end knowing that you've learned something new and have a goal.
• Patricia knows the market. She knows numbers. She knows value. She can read things and know what your best options are and how to negotiate to get the right price."

I needed a lease agreement written up and I was under strict time constraints. Patricia Connell knew exactly what I needed and walked me and my future tenants through the process so we both understood exactly what was happening. I was so impressed with how fast the agreement was completed. It was a stress free experience for me because I felt so comfortable with Patricia in charge. Thanks for your great work and I look forward to using your superior services again in the future.

My husband and I decided we were ready to jump into the housing market. As first time home buyers we were in need of a real estate agent who could help us find a home that met our needs and was in a neighbourhood with great schools for our children. Patricia Connell became our agent. Patricia listened to our needs and set us up with listings and contacted us as soon as a home was on the market that met our criteria. Patricia recommended important steps that we should take before making our offer and this helped ensure that our offer was taken seriously. We were ready when the right house came on the market and with Patricia's excellent negotiating skills we were able to have our offer accepted. We would recommend Patricia to anyone looking to buy a home for the first time. If you want an agent that is prepared and available and knows the real estate market then Patricia Connell is the right choice. Patricia will inform and advise you and always have your best interests in mind from start to closing. Claire Carabott
