Testimonials


Dear Heather,

I cannot begin to fathom how my brother and I would have gotten through the listing and selling of our mother's house without you! From your gentle patience and understanding during the 15 months when we were just not ready to take that next step, to the confident and assured way you handled the bidding frenzy that resulted in us getting a price well beyond our highest hopes -- and every condition and clause we wanted -- you have been nothing short of amazing! The house sold in only three days!

As a former real estate sales rep myself, I was especially impressed with your knowledge of the market, the business, contract and clause possibilities and how to deal with every twist and turn that presented itself during the offer presentations. Not only that, but your professionalism in dealing with some very determined and sometimes overly enthusiastic agents was impeccable.

In telling friends the story of how the house sold I have had some people ask for your name, and one has already said she will use you when she and her husband are ready to downsize.

Thank you SO much to you and Audra and everyone at Royal LePage Connect Realty.

Dear Heather,

 

Thank you very much for helping us to buy our condo and sell our house.

 

At all times you were helpful and accessible and you gave us as much of your time as we needed. You answered our questions and you explained the legalities clearly. You helped make the process as easy as possible.

 

Because of your efforts, a steady stream of agents and potential buyers went through our house. We collected close to 60 business cards from agents. We were very pleased when the house sold within one week for our asking price.

 

We enjoyed spending time with you as you alleviated much of the stress we were experiencing. We truly appreciated your professional approach combined with your positive attitude and enthusiasm.

 

We would certainly recommend you to anyone who is considering moving.

Dear Heather & Dee,
Thank you very much for making the process of selling our old house  n buying the new one stess-free. Our house was on the market for only one week. The process was quick and your team did an incredible job showing our home. We were pleased to get multiple offers on our home and excited to get above our asking price.  You made sure we got the best price for our home. In the end we were extremely happy.  You listened to us and encouraged us when we were discouraged in finding the house to suit our needs.  I fell in love with our new home the moment I walked in. Your team was wonderful during the entire process, both personal and professional. 
Thank you so very much

Hello Heather,

The sale has gone through, and all is well.  I wanted to thank you for your many efforts to help me with this sale.  You helped me pre-sign all the necessary papers so that we could move on the listing without delay.  Then you allowed me to sell the property privately, but that fell through……….

When I did decide to list, you got me offers in excess of our listed price, and within only a few days.

You helped me to sign the offer to purchase at the office in Minden, near our cottage.  Then picked up a train set and delivered it to Aurora.

I all you did, you showed a good-natured and professional approach, and I am very grateful for your work on my behalf.

I would recommend you as a real estate agent to anyone buying or selling a property in Toronto.

Best wishes

David and Janet Metcalfe
 


Hi Heather & Dee,

 

Everyone wants the best price when selling or buying a house.  However real estate transactions are a lot more than just about the best sale price or purchase price.  You need a great real estate agent to deal with every curve ball thrown at you when you least expect it. 

A confident, experienced, skilled and trustworthy real estate agent is needed to help you navigate through every tough situation you find yourself in as part of the home buying or selling process. 

Heather Lemieux has been that real estate agent for us! 

 

Thank you Heather!

 

Shawn and JC Lee
 


Dear Heather,

We appreciated the way you walked us through this process without ever patronizing us. You treated us with respect and honored the fact that buying a house is a big deal. You handled the transition smoothly and thoughtfully. We liked the laid back & honest, yet professional approach.

I will definitely recommend you to my friends and family.

 Thank you very much

Heather...

 

We had been scouting around for homes for a number of months before making the decision to put our house on the market. We met you through a number of open houses and when it came time to list, you immediately came to mind. You had exceptional knowledge on market conditions in the area we were selling as well as buying. We found you professional and ethical in all our dealings and you took the time to explain not only the details on the intricacies of purchase and sale but why those details were important to us.

Needless to say, our sale went very smoothly, everything happening just as we had planned, from the day we listed to the closing of the deal. Our experience on the buying side was handled just as efficiently.  Your vast network of references for lawyers, inspectors, movers etc made the experience seamless and we would not hesitate to recommend you and to use your services once more when we decide to do it again. 

 

Thanks again Heather

Dear Heather,

O behalf of my mother (89) and father (95), I would like to thank you for the services that you provided in the sale of their home.

We really appreciated your approach to the sale of their home which they have lived in for over 60 years.  You were very courteous, patient and understanding when talking to two senior people whose hearing is not the best.  You explained the entire sales process in a very understandable manner and alleviated the fears that they had in the selling of the only home they have ever owned.  They commented that they found you and your services to be very professional, well organized and thorough.

We appreciated your negotiating skills in realizing us 97% of the listing price of the property.

Sincerely,

Gene Lucas on behalf of Dorothy & Percy Lucas

Thank you for all your kindness and patience.  We are eternally grateful and thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for all that you have done.

You are highly recommended to anyone we know that is looking to either buy a new home or sell their own.

Dear Heather,

We would like to convey our sincere appreciation for all your hard work in helping us find our first home.

 

Through a referral, we immediately knew we selected an incredibly sincere, hard-working agent. Since our first meeting with you, you have always shown a keen interest in helping us make such an important purchase without feeling any pressure in finding the right home for us. No matter what time of day we met or spoke with you by phone, you always made us feel as though we were your only clients.

Your professionalism, knowledge of the market and suggestions put us at ease and made us feel confident in our final decision.

Although we found ourselves in a couple of less than ideal situations before finding our home, you always put us at ease and reminded us there would be a home on the market that would better suit our wants and needs.

Thank you for taking so much time to listen to our needs and understand exactly what we were ultimately looking for.

We feel so fortunate to have found a realtor who is endlessly committed to making and keeping her clients happy.

We look forward to sharing many memories in our new home, and hopefully, working with you again down the road.

All the best. Thanks for your efforts! We would not hesitate to recommend you to our friends or anyone who may be looking to purchase and/or sell in the future.

Sincerely,

Trevor Owens and Andrea Piunno

Dear Heather,

If Barb and I had known moving was going to be this much fun, we would have moved 20 years ago.  Then 19 years ag0, then 18, then 17, right up to this move.  We would have done all of them with you.

Heather, you are an absolute delight to work with.  You are professional, thorough and imaginative.  When we saw the video you made of our home, the house looked so good we almost changed our minds about moving.  Then, you had the Open House and we came within a whisker of getting our asking price - in a heavily-weighted buyer's market situation, at a time when we didn't think we'd sell our house at all.

We can't thank you enough for everything you did.  If you ever, ever, ever need a reference, don't hesitate to send them to us.

Sincerely,

Barb & Rich

This is our second time using Heather and once again she did not disappoint us.  In a supposed market downturn, she sold our house in 4 days as well as negotiated the best deal in the purchase of our new home. The service didn't stop there, she also assisted us with movers, reccomendations and checklists to ensure nothing was left undone.

Heather is truly a great agent!!

A special "thank you" for helping us obtain our first home in Canada.  It was a pleasure to have you as our agent, you were a tremendous help.

From our first meeting you know exactly what it was that we were looking for.  You were able to answer all the different questions I asked and eventually found that perfect house which has now become HOME to me and my family.

Dear Heather,

We are pleased to offer this letter of gratitude for you.  Your work ethic as well as your expertise enabled Michelle and myself to sell our house during one of the toughest market conditions ever, with considering the failing economy as well slumping real estate market.

You were resilient in your efforts to find the perfect buyer for our home.  Your constant advertisements, open houses as well screening potential buyers enabled Michelle and myself to continue with our normal day to day activities.

Heather, you have an uncanny understanding of what potential buyers are looking for in a home.

Your experience and expertise was very much welcomed.  Your suggestions reinforced our decision making as well provided us with a realistic outlook on future endeavors.

Heather, you are truly an agent who cares!

Dear Heather,

Thank you for selling my home.  The professional treatment and the empathy you gave to my needs and feelings were exceptional.  Being a Senior and not having moved in some years I needed all the help you were able to provide.  I was very impressed by your brochure and by your photographic abilities in the presentation both inside and out of my home.

My best wishes to you for the future and I hope that my personal recommendations will be to your advantage.  Thanks again.

Sincerely,

My husband and I considered ourselves to be two of the fussiest buyers when looking for our new home and we often didn't see eye to eye when sizing up potential properties.  From our very first meeting with Heather, she was thoroughly prepared, professional and enthusiastic about the job at hand.  Throughout our search for our dream home, Heather remained upbeat, patient and tireless.

Though we know she is one of the busiest and most successful agents in our area she made us feel like we were her only clients.

Heather's incredible knowledge of the Scarborough market, her assistance previewing homes and above all, her wonderful listening skills to us helped us to save time and hone our search.  In the end my husband and I found a house we were both ecstatic about.

When it came time to sell our home, Heather again demonstrated unflagging energy and enthusiasm for the job.  She provided us with a useful information package and never seemed to tire of answering our many questions about the process.  She also gave us good advise on timing and pricing strategies, and ways to prepare our home for the best sale.  Her virtual tour and photo brochure or our home were creative and professional and definitely showed off our house to its best potential.

After just one week (that included many private showings, a well-attended agents' tour and a busy open house) we received multiple offers and sold for more that $21,000 over our asking price.

Far above and beyond the normal real estate agent's duties, Heather helped make the whole process less stressful by providing us with referrals for everything from last minute home repair to legal services.  She even introduced us to some of our future neighbours and helped us feel welcome in our new community.  Her strong connection to the Scarborough community is apparent as her love for her job.

We couldn't be more please with the result from both the purchase of our new home and the sale of our current home.  We couldn't have been more impressed with our agent.

Hi Heather,

Thanks for the moving tips I'm sure it will come in quite handy!

No words can truly describe how grateful we are to you, for helping us find our perfect home!

We knew from the minute we met you that you were the agent we wanted to work with! Your expertise in the West Rouge/Centennial area really helped us make the decision that this was the community we wanted to become a part of.

You were always so full of energy, your smiles are so infectious, and you truly never seemed to tire from answering our endless questions (which we had many)!  You knew exactly what we were looking for and no matter how discouraged we were at times, you continued to reassure us that we would find our perfect home!

We could not be any happier for the dedication and the amount of time you put into working with us and finding what truly is our dream home.  You made the whole process much easier for us, you guided us from the begininng to the end and we truly appreciated the much needed handholding you did along the way!

We would highly recommend you to our family and friends.  Thanks once again for all your dedication and support!

Dear Heather,

John and I would like to thank you for all of your help and assistance in selling our home in just a few weeks time, and WOW my Aunt's home in just over a week.  You were always ther to answer any questions or concerns we had and showed a professional approach throughout the process.

Selling a house can be very stressful but you made the process from beginning to end run so smoothly with your expertise, hard work and boundless energy.

We will gladly recommend you to all our family and friends.  Once again many thanks for your invaluable help.

We had the opportunity to meet with Heather through a family member who was also a satisfied client of hers.  We knew when it was our turn to purchase, Heather would be the only realtor we were interested in working with.

Now, two years later, we had the opportunity to work with Heather and once again we were impressed and satisfied with the great service she provided.  Heather's professionalism and expertise is everything a first time homebuyer, or seasoned purchaser would look for in a real estate agent.  Heather's expertise extends far beyond the common questions homebuyers have, she was always happy to offer up honest suggestions, advise and tips.  We would not hesitate to refer Heather as a real estate agent to anyone, based on her constant attention to detail, open availability, and honesty.  Heather's genuine care and personal investment in helping us find the perfect home, was valuable as clients and comfort as first time homebuyers.

We highly recommend Heather Lemieux as a real estate agent, and we know that if we ever grow out of our home, Heather will be the first person we contact.  We would like to wish Heather the best in future endeavors, and if you have the opportunity to work with Heather as we did, you will not be disappointed.

When our ‘in-laws’ approached the family for help selling their Scarborough home, we agreed our first priority was finding them the right realtor. As the former Director of Corporate Real Estate for an FP 500 company, I understood the value of hiring an experienced professional with good market knowledge and a proven track-record. We wanted an agent who had the respect of their peers and could effectively leverage the local realtor network for prospective buyers. We also wanted someone who was personable and had the patience and humour required to work with our committee of daughters and sons-in-law and our two octogenarian homeowners.

 

After a wide search and a thorough review of potential candidates, Heather Lemieux became the unanimous choice of the family members tasked with finding a listing agent.

 

Heather provided us clear and comprehensive market information in support of her recommendations regarding pricing and how to best prepare the house for showings. When the listing was launched, Heather hit the ground running with a well attended realtors’ open house, multiple private showings, a public open house, and within 2 weeks - multiple offers. (Acknowledging her professional skills and experience, we also learned that Heather’s success in generating high-volume buyer traffic might be due in-part to the legendary homemade butter tarts she brings to her realtor open houses.) The house was sold within 12 days, at over 98% of list with a one month closing; exceeding our expectations and beating the local MLS sales averages for ‘percentage-of-list’ and ‘days-on-the-market’.

 

Our family committee and former homeowners are very happy with both the outcome and the manner in which Heather managed the selling process. She delivered on all of her commitments and was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Heather Lemieux to anyone looking for an excellent realtor in Scarborough.

 

Sincerely,<

Ross Moore
 


When our family recently grew, we needed to move into a larger home, Heather helped us tremendously by showing us many houses until the right home came along.  Her fantastic negotiating skills helped us when it came time to close the deal.

When it came to selling our house, Heather did a fantastic job, from advice on staging, pricing our house right, and hosting extremely well attended open houses.  With small children, we hoped it would not take long to sell.  In one week our home sold for over the asking price with four offers, and our lives could get back to normal.  We would definitely recommend Heather to anyone needing to buy or sell - she will get the job done!

Dear Heather

Thank you so much for helping us find our first home!  We knew from the minute we met you that you would be the agent we wanted to work with -  you were so full of energy and never seemed to tire of answering our endless questions.  Within a very short time you seemed to understand exactly what we were looking for, and despite the competition along the way you never failed to reassure us that the right house would come along.  Your expertise in the West Rouge/Centennial area was a definite advantage and really made a difference when we were trying to make tough decisions.  Your top notch referrals on everything from inspection to financing and legal matters made the whole process much easier for us - we could not be happier with the service you provided.  The relations we have formed over the past few months will be one that lasts - we plan to return to you for all our real estate needs in the future and would highly recommend you to family and friends.  Thanks again for working so hard on our behalf and always doing it with a smile on your face.

Most sincerely,

Tanja and Cory Jones
 


Heather

Thank you so much for helping me find my first home! Your personal and professional qualities made me feel comfortable and confident as I searched for and negotiated my first home.  Your expertise in the field and your advice and guidance helped things run smoothly and efficiently.

You always made yourself available and went well beyond the duties of a real estate agent (both before and after closing).  You definitely went the "extra mile" to ensure my satisfaction and happiness. Thank you for making my first home purchase such an enjoyable experience.

I will  definitely be recommending you to friends and colleagues who are looking to buy/sell a home.

Brenda Varallo
 


Dear Heather

I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for the amazing job you did selling my dad's home in such a short time.  It's hard to believe the "for sale" sign was up on his property September 4/07 and the closing date was September 28/07.

After researching a number of agents in the area I chose you and I'm glad I did.  You carefully walked me through the sales process that would be used to sell the property, and you indeed followed the process through to completion.  Also of note is the fact that you were always available when I needed to reach you.

Thank you again for your honest professionalism, and be assured that I will highly recommend you and Royal LePage to my family, friends and acquaintances should they be selling/buying property in the future.

I know I made the right choice.

Yours truly,

Diane Letby

Dear Heather Thank you so much for overseeing the sale of our home. We knew we were in good hands right away and respected the fact that you were always working in our best interests. We especially appreciated the wonderful description of our place in your promotional material. Who wouldn’t want to buy after reading that? We are sure the new owners will enjoy our place as much as we have. Thanks again!

I couldn`t be happier with the outcome! Heather, you also brought lots of ``patience`` to what can be a pretty agonizing process! A special thanks for all your reassurance and hand-holding during the negotiation phase of the process. I wouldn`t hesitate to recommend your talents to any future sellers (and buyers!) who are looking for a hard working, results-oriented real estate professional.....

Dear Heather We would like to thank you for all of your hard work related to the sale of our home. From the very beginning you performed brilliantly in all aspects related to selling our home. Valuable advice related to preparing the home for sale, very prompt replies to any questions we had, and complete attention to detail in every aspect of the entire process has made this experience an absolute pleasure.. We will unreservedly recommend you to any and all who ask. Thanks again.
Chris & Mary Houghton
 


Throughout the process, which proved to be mercifully short, Heather demonstrated a real appreciation for our home, true professionalism at all times, and a passion and aggressiveness that melded perfectly with our own. She listened to our wishes and always tried hard to satisfy them while advising us, when appropriate, if a better alternative existed.... It was truly a pleasure to work with Heather and we wanted to ensure that you know that, in our opinion, she excels at her profession.
Larry Heide & Kathy Sullivan
 


The service you provided us was stellar! You very quickly assessed our needs and never took us to a house that didn`t possess the qualities that we were hoping for. Not one visit was a waste of our time.....After seeing many homes in the area, we feel extremely lucky to have found our terrific new home. The topper to it all was the great support you provided us in selling our house. We were hopeful that it would sell quickly, but to have six offers and have everything wrapped us in less than a week was simply fantastic. Thanks so much Heather. Both Brian and myself would have no hesitations in referring family or friends to you. You are a fine example of a Real Estate partner.
Judy & Brian Doidge
 


Right from the very beginning you were a tremendous help. From our first meeting ... it gave us a great sense of relief that we were in good hands. Thank you again for doing such a fine job.
