Boldt Realty Reviews
Here’s what some of our customers have had to say. You’re encouraged to submit your story below.
We have had the pleasure to work with Bryony twice, first time buying a house and seven years later selling it, she goes above and beyond, she is a wealth of information always puts our needs first, she answers her phone every single time we call, very patient and answering all of our questions and giving us the best advice ever, She is the most professional realtor we have ever met, it has been a pleasure working with her, if details matter to you then this is the realtor you should contact.John & Shahnaz
Deidre Turl was absolutely amazing. She went above and beyond to help us. So easy to communicate with and so friendly. Boldt should be very proud to have her on their team. Thank you soooo much Deidre. We will definitely recommend you to everyone.Karen & Brandon D
Kudos to Melanie for her amazing work in facilitating the purchase of my dream home in three days! She toured us around to several properties, some with little notice, and had a lovely, laid back style that I greatly appreciated. If you are planning to move to the Niagara area, you need Melanie on your team. Go team M and B!Bonnie
Justin was a lot of fun to work with, and we definitely presented him with a few challenges along the way! As a large family with a unique dynamic, it’s sometimes difficult to know how people are going to receive you, but Justin was very respectful and welcomed our unusual situation with open arms. Not only did he have all 3 of our wants and opinions to consider, but we also had 4 children at home and I was pregnant with our 5th, so we needed a lot of bedrooms, in a great neighbourhood and school district. He must have showed us 30+ houses–sometimes at very random times of day just because it was the only time we could make viewings work in our busy lives. He was also helping us sell our house at the same time. When we finally found our new home, Justin demonstrated a genuine excitement and happiness right along with us. We are so appreciative of all of the work he put into helping us buy and sell our homes, and can’t thank him enough for the professionalism and inclusivity he demonstrated.Coltin, Sarah, Cass
Tara from Boldt is a true REALTOR! She found us a home and didnt play “the game” From start to finish she conducted herself like a professional. Reminded us that you can get a result when working with the right person and brokerage that backs them. 10/10.Gary M
Working with Traie was an absolute pleasure! As first time home buyers, the process was very new and overwhelming to us. Traie’s knowledge on the current market, neighborhoods and listings that he showed us really helped to make that process more comfortable and rather easy. Traie’s professionalism and commitment to finding us our first home was nothing short of acceptable. We really could not have done it without Traie and his expertise! Thank you again!Wes & Meg
What a great experience this has been! It started by off calling to the Boldt Reality Teams office after getting several recommendations from locals in St Catharines. I was then transferred to Christine Garus. As a first-time property buyer/investor I was unclear of the process and where to begin. I was nervous as well as anxious and after talking with Christine for the first time, I knew my dream of being a property owner/investor would be possible.
Christine was consistent through out the whole process; she would send me properties daily that she knew fit my needs and budget. When viewing each property (which was many) Christine was patient and very knowledgeable on what to look for and if there were any red flags and teaching me along the way. Her creative mind set help me to see the potential each property could have.
With such a competitive market I was starting to lose faith that I would be able to find a property I was looking for within my price range. Christine never gave up on me and kept me encouraged through this whole process. With her many contacts we were able to finally find a property that checked all the boxes I needed.
The entire time she was always there to take my calls and texts and help me get a better understanding of the closing process and keep me well updated. Not only did I find the property I was looking for, I found great contacts along the way that I can call my new friends. Thank you so much for all the help and support guiding me through this whole process.Anthony W
Bryony acted as our realtor when we were looking to relocate to St. Catharines from Eastern Ontario. We were very pleased with the service and advice she provided. She was very well-versed in the various neighbourhoods – the pros and the cons – and she selected properties for our viewing that she considered suitable to our needs. She was unfailingly prompt, prepared and ready to help us through the process which culminated in our buying a home in the fall of 2021. Even post sale, she has proven to be a wealth of information as we have looked to line up services or trades to put our own touches to our new home. We would not hesitate to recommend her.Louise & Bill
This is the first time I worked with a real estate agent to sell my house. Jason was a godsend. He reviewed the house, recommended things to change and things to leave. He explained the process in a clear and simple way. With the current market I was nervous about selling. He gave me 3 options on how to market my home, explaining the pros and cons of each. The plan I picked, hit a home run for me. I got more for my home than I ever dreamed possible. He never put any pressure on me and answered my questions quickly. Jason and his team stayed in contact the entire time updating me throughout the whole process. If you’re looking for a friendly, honest agent I can’t recommend Jason Wilson highly enough.Roy H
Our family had the absolute pleasure of working with Christine during a very challenging time (COVID-19 lockdown #3). We wanted to move, not just homes, but cities and weren’t even sure which town we wanted to land in. We wanted to look at homes in 3 different towns in the Niagara Region while living in St. Catharines. Christine took all of these viewing requests in stride and booked everything in the best possible way to allow us to view the most homes possible on the only day we had childcare available for our toddler. Not only did Christine find us our dream/forever home and submit an attractive offer which was accepted by the sellers with no sign-backs, but she also sold our current home in 72 hours. We did not imagine that our first home would sell so quickly or that we would receive multiple offers, all of which were over our asking price. We know for sure that without Christine’s expertise and listing skills this process would not have gone nearly so smoothly. She even blocked off viewing times to allow the process to be less stressful for our toddler and allow her to still keep a consistent nap schedule, even during the craziest week of our life with over 15 showings in 3 days. During the contract negotiations for both homes, Christine was professional, firm, and always available for my (many many) questions and concerns. She arranged all of our pre-closing viewings and attended them all to handle any of our questions with the listing agent. Christine is a true gem, incredibly kind, and so knowledgeable on all things real estate. We would not hesitate to recommend Christine Garus to anyone who is looking to buy OR sell in the Niagara Region.Sarah & Stuart C
Justin, thank you for making the sale of our home so seamless from listing to selling in a few days! We’ve never experienced this in the past. You treated us like family, not clients.Brenda & Frank A
We had the pleasure of meeting Justin in June of 2019 when we came to Welland to look at a few open houses and try to figure out if this was the area we wanted to retire to. The very first Open House we went to was hosted by Justin. He was very knowledgeable and personable and took the time to understand what we were looking for as well as our timing. We knew immediately that Justin was the Real Estate Agent for us. Over the next few months Justin kept in touch with us and just before COVID hit we arranged to spend the day with him viewing properties. At the end of the day, Justin had a really good idea of what we were looking for and what features were important to us. On June 1, 2020 Justin reached out with a new listing that he felt fit our requirements perfectly. We viewed the listing online and called him to set up the appointment for us to see it. Justin was right- it was the house for us! He made the buying process easy and seamless. Almost 2 years later, we still love the house and neighbourhood. Thank you Justin!Jackie & John
Just wanted to say thank you so much for devoting your time and so much effort on selling our house. It was a pleasure having you stand by my wife and I all the way throughout the selling process to make it easier on us. Again, thank you so much Justin Kilkenny for your knowledge and support!Doug & Maryse
Justin, thank you again so much for your help in finding this beautiful home. We couldn’t be happier. It was so awesome that we had met you at an open house by chance! We cannot say enough about your work ethic, your positive spirit, and the effort you put forward to make sure everybody was taken care of and comfortable – from start to finish. You have been extremely thorough in all aspects of this purchase, and we greatly appreciate that. Thanks for all of your hard work! We would recommend you to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home. 5 Stars from all of us!The Buchwalds & Hamiltons
I’m very excited about the purchase of our new home. I couldn’t have done it without Justin. Initially I was scared to jump back into the housing market because it had been so long since I was last in it, however, Justin made me feel like family and I knew that I could trust him. He was by my side throughout every step of the process and I am so grateful.Judy S
We were so fortunate to have found Harvin Samra when we decided to buy our first home. As our Realtor, he helped us find the right house in the right neighbourhood for the right price. He was patient as we were looking at homes all over Niagara & Hamilton for several months and cautioned us about making unreasonable offers when we fell too quickly for overpriced homes. In short, he was always on our side working to make our house purchase as simple and successful as possible. The best part about working with Harvin was that he was always more focused on answering our questions, giving us good advice, and finding homes that met our needs than he was on closing a deal. We would recommend him to anyone.A. Brar
We are pleased to give a recommendation for Nancy DenBak as a great realtor to work with. When looking for a home, Nancy regularly supplied us with listings which were in line with what we were looking for. She was always very flexible and available at our convenience to view homes with us. Nancy gave us knowledgeable and honest feedback on the homes that we were viewing. When the time came for submitting an offer, she gave us good advice on reasonable prices and conditions to put in our offer, especially during crazy real estate market situations. Never did we feel like she was trying to get us to offer higher prices in order to gain a higher commission for herself. She was always trying to get us a fair value for our purchase and had our best interests in mind.If you are looking to buy or sell a home and want genuine timely and personal service, give Nancy a call.J & B
We just recently purchased our first home through Harvin at Boldt Realty and cannot say enough fantastic things about our experience! Harvin was great to work with and really cares about his clients best interest . He was so patient and kind with us and made sure that we didn’t settle for just any house. By doing so, we were able to find our dream house and cannot thank him enough for his guidance!Sheraze H
If you are looking for a Realtor® look no further. Candice is amazing at what she does! She is friendly, very personable and really takes your best interests at heart. She takes her time explaining how things work which as a first time home buyer was really important to me, and will work hard to find exactly what you are looking for. Her knowledge of renovations and construction are definitely an asset as she can guide you through what a “fixer upper” may need and point out any issues a house may have so you are not purchasing blindly. This woman is fantastic, I 1000% recommend that you choose her to find you a house!D.T.
I cannot begin to express how amazing Jay was as our realtor! As first time home buyers, it can be very stressful and intimidating especially in today’s market. Jay made it a complete breeze and enjoyable experience. He made sure that we were able to find our perfect first home without going over budget and also, not ever settling for a house that wasn’t the right fit. We looked through many homes, and he was so patient with the process and insuring that we wouldn’t stop looking until the right one came and sure enough, we found our dream house! My partner and myself are so thankful for Jay’s kindness and knowledge throughout the whole process. 10/10 would recommend him to anyone interested in purchasing or selling a home!!Tori M
We just recently purchased our first home through Jay McLelland at Boldt Realty and cannot say enough fantastic things about our experience!
Jay is wonderful to work with and really cares about his clients as well as the city he lives in. He was so patient and kind with us and made sure that we didn’t settle for just any house in this crazy market. By doing so, we were able to find our dream house and cannot thank him and Boldt enough!Carlos L
We can’t say enough good things about our realtor Heather Toderick. We sold our 3 bedroom bungalow with her quickly and painlessly. Through every stage of the process, Heather was responsive, knowledgeable, and positive. We trusted her advice and suggestions and were very pleased with the price we got for our home. She went above and beyond our expectations and represented our home with professionalism and care.Julia D
I’d like to take a minute to thank my realtor Jason Wilson with Boldt realty. Jason was conscientious of the current market and worked closely with me to strategize a plan to sell my home. We came up with a plan and sold the home for the price we set out too. Jason went over and above the call of duty, even helping out with my dog so we could allow for more showings while I worked during the week. I moved out of province and Jason still helped with tying up loose ends while I was away, which made my life much easier. I’ve worked with some really great realtors in the past but I thought Jason did a fantastic job this time around, I’d recommend him to anyone.Mike D
My husband and I are so very grateful that we chose Jay McLelland of Boldt Realty to help us sell our family home of 30 years. His compassion, professionalism and attention to detail are second to none. When my husband suddenly took ill and had to spend 11 days in hospital, Jay made sure that all was moving forward after first checking with us. The fabulous photography, staging and marketing all led to above asking price in 5 days. in fact, the day my husband got his clean bill of health, we signed the agreement. We are definitely recommending Jay McLelland to all our family, friends and colleagues.Stella & Mario M
First off, I’d like to thank you for all you did in selling my house. You made the process very easy and were a complete pleasure to deal with. Your easy-going manner and experience made it effortless. It was so nice to know that even when things were further complicated by the COVID-19 pandemic, you were there to take care of all the details. It was great having a knowledgeable professional like you guiding me in the sale of my house. You’re a gem in the real estate profession Jim, and others would be lucky to have you representing them. To that end, please know that I would not hesitate at all in recommending you to anyone that’s looking to buy or sell. Again, thanks very much!!!Mary A
We can’t say enough about Traie. We weren’t sure if we were ready to buy but he presented us with the benefits and we started looking at homes. He was patient, thorough and very professional. Working with him put our minds at ease. Not only did he help us purchase our new home, he was also able to find a great tenant for our rental. He made the entire process so stress free. We truly enjoyed working with Traie and hope to continue our new found partnership.AH
Working with Traie was a pleasure. He was thoughtful and thorough. The thought of downsizing wasn’t easy for me. But he understood what it was I was looking for in a townhouse, and he delivered. He was patient as I viewed listing after listing to find the right one! I will be calling on Traie for my next purchase! Thank You!!!D Thomas
I highly recommend Heather. Working with her to buy my first home was a great experience! She’s very knowledgeable both about real estate and the Niagara Region. Heather was responsive, no matter the time of day, and always able to accommodate my schedule. Her connections were extremely valuable as she recommended mortgage brokers, lawyers, home inspectors, etc. After viewing several detached homes and having no luck finding one that checked off my boxes, Heather suggested I consider townhouse condos as she felt they’re more in line with what I was looking for. She was right – and once I started viewing townhouse condos, I didn’t return to viewing detached homes. Heather, thank you for your outstanding expertise and guidance in helping me find my first homeFelicia
Deidre Turl from the BOLDT Realty team was nothing short of amazing to work with. Deidre was accommodating and motivated to find us exactly what we were looking for. With a set budget and slightly unreasonable timeline Deidre worked a miracle to help us purchase our first home. As first time home buyers we felt very overwhelmed but Deidre provided us with knowledge and support that made buying our first home enjoyable. Thank you for the amazing experience of being a first time home buyer, a memory we will never forget!Emma S
After 21 years in our home, we decided to sell in order to retire & downsize. When we bought it in 2000, the Seller’s realtor was Jean Page & when we decided to sell, we kept it in the family with her son Randy & his wife Debbie Page. We were more than just a listing to them… they knew how important it was to get top dollar to finance our future plans! I’ve seen one ad where a client was thrilled that the agent “even cut our grass”. Well, how about painting, repairing, trimming, staging, etc., etc., all those things that we couldn’t get around to & didn’t even notice. Thank you Randy for pouring yourself into these tasks. Randy & Deb came up with great marketing strategies which found a Buyer within a week. We depended on them to hold our hand & keep us anxiety free during this time. From start to finish, they were true professionals who knew the market & yes, we did get the price we wanted. So thanks tons to Jean, Randy, Debbie Page at Boldt Realty. Our future begins now!Don & Maureen
Christine, thank you for helping me find a unique property that is truly me. Your knowledge of the St. Catharines area was invaluable and helped to steer me in the right direction. Without you, I may have purchased in the wrong area! As well, your bonus designer advice will go a long way towards making it into a perfectly gorgeous home! I can’t wait to see how it turns out. Thanks a bunch.Belinda C
Lisa is an amazing person and real estate agent. I’ve used Lisa a number of times and so has my family. Couple weeks ago I had the pleasure of working with Lisa again while being overseas. She made the whole process stress free and went above & beyond my expectations, like always! Under a week she sold my condo for over asking which set a new record in the building complex! We sold for more than a penthouse that sold just a few days before us! Results speak for itself and that’s why it’s extremely important to pick your agent right because it can make a world of difference. Thank you Lisa for everything you have done, you were on top of things and informed me every step of the way… you handled my business like your own and I will always be grateful that I picked you as my Realtor.Nino F
Not only did Lisa find a house that “checked off all my boxes” (which wasn’t easy) but she did it with great care and class. She too checked off all the boxes in what we all need in a real estate agent. Well done!!Pat C
Tara Sabadin from this office just sold our house. From our first meeting I was impressed with her professionalism. Tara kept us involved in every step of the process from the listing to the ultimate sale. I don’t have enough good things to say about her and this company. I would definitely list with Tara again and will convince all my friends to do so.Mary L
I had the pleasure of working with Christine Garus. Not only did she find our forever home, she also sold our house within 7 days of listing and over asking price. Her knowledge and professionalism is top notch. Christine is always available and open to any of our questions or concerns. I can’t thank Christine enough for taking most of the stress from us during this process. Her upstanding professionalism truly shined and shows how much she cares for her clients. Christine is a fountain of information, and anyone would greatly benefit from her experience. I Highly recommend Christine Garus for buying or selling any home. Christine is someone you can trust, call anytime, understand the entire process of buying or selling and get amazing results! Thank you Christine.Michelle A
Scott made buying a new house and selling our old house a smooth transition! Day or night he was available for questions, and explained everything clearly. Definitely put my mind at ease. You won’t find a more hardworking person in your corner. Thanks again Scott!Kay & Shanna
We met Jay while attending his open house and quickly realized Jay was someone we wanted helping us with our search for a home. When we found the home we wanted, Jay quickly lead the way, he did an amazing job negotiating on our behalf. Jay also helped us through the entire process, his services didn’t stop once the sale was completed. He provided contacts for various services, had all of our questions answered and guided us through the entire process. Jay is a great communicator and a pleasure to work with (and apparently he can cook too). Highly recommend!John & Ingrid
Nancy has been our Realtor for years. She is honest and works hard on your behalf, and she tells you what she really thinks. She is kind, smart, and pleasant to work with and I would highly recommend her!Kathleen N
We could not be more thrilled with the results Lisa brought us with the sale of our home. In just one week she brought in 8 offers with two offers being 100k+ over asking. She was extremely professional and made sure every detail was looked after. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking to sell their home in the Niagara region.Alicia
Jay is amazing, he truly cares about his clients. Anytime we ever had a question or didn’t understand something, he would explain it. Jay has went above and beyond for us. So thank you Jay for everything and I will recommend him 10 out of 10 times!!Val & Jason
Jay is the best! Always helpful and willing to give support with all his contacts. He answers you back within 5 minutes for even the simplest request. All hours of the day, Jay gives you his guidance and support. Moving can be very stressful but Jay is there for you from beginning to end. By far the best Realtor out there. Thanks Jay!Johnny & Hanh
I was looking for what seemed to be a really long time, months if you will, for a place my family would feel safe. Harvin gave us that. He listened to our concerns, what we were looking for and the space we needed. I can breathe a little better at night, because Harvin did his absolute best. I would recommend him to everyone and anyone, looking for a new home. Thank you Harvin, for not only my peace of mind, but for our place we call home.Candice L
Bryony made the whole process of purchasing a home so fun and so easy. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a truly qualified agent. Bryony goes out of her way to make her customers happy and satisfied. I could not have done it without her expert knowledge and professionalism during the whole transaction. Bryony is the real deal!!Matthew U.
Bryony is truly experienced, knowledgeable, and passionate in real estate. She understood this market perfectly and sold our house swiftly for over asking. She answered every frantic call or random question I had. A true pro! Thanks Bryony!The Marcella’s
I cannot rave enough about the care and service we’ve received with Tara as our agent in buying our new home. Buying a home is stressful enough, especially being hours away. But Tara was readily available to do home visits, answering countless emails, send photos/videos, and give updates throughout the whole process. Tara is above and beyond amazing! With her knowledge and professionalism, it’s clear that she knows the market, the buying trends, pricing strategies, etc. Her quick whit and kind demeanor made her a dream to work with. I am forever grateful to Tara for finding out family’s forever home.Rob & Ellen
Excellent service. Jason Wilson is an excellent agent who guided us through a stressful experience and was able to get us way over asking price. Would recommend to anyone one looking to buy or sell their home.Darren MacKenzie
Jay recently sold our family home at a time that was neither envied nor recommended. The time we chose to sell was in itself a challenge, with covid restrictions everywhere, people not working, financial institutions not lending, etc. Jay came up with a plan that resulted in a quick sale and over asking price, all with no open houses and following all covid restrictions.Jorge & Jenny Lopez
We can’t say enough good things about Jay. His attention to detail was incredible and he left no stone unturned to find the right buyers for us. He worked tirelessly and the end result was an amazing experience all around. Happy sellers, happy buyers. Thanks Jay for all your hard work and wonderful time spent with us. We have no words to express our gratitude. We would recommend Jay for all of your real estate needs, buying, selling, leasing, there’s no one better. We know that he would work hard for you too!
Bryony helped my daughter find her first home. Even in this stressful market, Bryony helped us through the frustrations of one day sales and crazy offers. She put in 100% on scheduling all our viewings and putting in offers late into the night. Thanks so much for your help Bryony!Adima D
Erik,Jay. & Jenn
We cannot thank you enough for all that you’ve done for us. You went above & beyond, helping us find our perfect home. Your patience & honesty was very refreshing as you always made our best interest a priority. We will always remember how easy you made this difficult process & will be recommending you every chance we get. Thank you so much for being so great!
All the best,
Heather Toderick at Boldt has been amazing! She reached out to me around two years ago when I first started my home search. She set me up with a special online portal to have listings emailed to me that were in my budget range. She was always available for any questions I had, and we still kept in touch when listings were slower such as during the winter months. Eventually this summer I finally found my perfect home thanks to her! She even went above and beyond to make absolute sure that the building was pet friendly (one of my non negotiables) before suggesting that I go look at the unit. It turned out to be the one, and she helped me with my offer every step of the way. She is so friendly and easy to talk to and explains everything so well. I loved working with her and felt very comfortable with her at all times. She is absolutely wonderful and will help you find your perfect home as well. I am so happy and thankful she helped me find mine.Cassandra
To say that Bryony went above and beyond would be an understatement. Making the decision to sell our home during such an uncharted time was scary to say the least. She managed to answer all our questions, even when at some points I knew they were ridiculous. Knowing we had someone who made sure our best interest was the cornerstone of the sale, made the world of difference. With the uncertainty of the Covid pandemic and having children in our home, Bryony made sure we were comfortable with the level of protection for not only my family, but the others who came through. Bryony, your love and dedication to your clients is unparalleled to anyone I have experienced within your field. Thank you for all you hard work and dedication in selling our home. My new home is a dream and none of that could have happened without you!Kristen Milligan
We had Erik as our realtor to sell our house. He was very helpful during the whole process which was very much appreciated. Erik was also very easy to get a hold of to answer questions and for anything else that came up. He also was able to find a lot of buyers and we ended up selling way above the asking price. I would recommend him to anyone.Adam
I am from out of town, and was responsible for selling my mom’s house in St. Catharines. Scott did a great job explaining the local real estate market and gave us practical recommendations about the listing price and what we needed to do to prepare the house for sale. During the last few weeks before closing, he went that extra mile such as emptying the last few items in the house and having the grass cut to ready the house for the next owner. Thanks Scott!Rob
While interviewing a few agents, we spoke with Bryony Hawthorn. She was professional, personable and prepared for our meeting. She laid out an aggressive and thorough strategy that promoted our house in multiple markets while recommending a competitive list price. We looked no more and listed that week with Bryony. With multiple offers, our house sold in four days over asking!!!
From listing to closing Bryony was on top of things every step of the way and communicated everything to us in a timely manner. We were very thankful to have Bryony in our corner, especially when the COVID-19 pandemic hit.
I would highly recommend Bryony to anyone selling their home. I can’t imagine anyone doing a better job than she did for us.Rick & Steve
We would love to thank Scott and the Boldt Realty Team.
From day one, my wife and I felt at ease working with Scott. He was a real pleasure and kept us well informed with every step we needed to take.
We would definitely recommend Scott to anyone looking to sell or buy. Thank you so much for your help with selling our home and allowing us to buy our dream home.E & M
Let me start by saying that I place a lot of importance on positive customer service and how a customer is treated. When my husband and I decided to sell our home it was put to me to find a real estate agent. I read endless reviews and profiles of local agents. I also met a few in person but left those meetings feeling like I would not be a priority. That all changed when we met Jason Wilson (now with Boldt Realty). He came over to our home to walk through and discuss our options and the process. He was so personable, friendly and relaxed but professional. He answered all of our questions and made us aware of things we didn’t even know to ask. He introduced himself to our kids (14,19) which I thought was awesome. He was a stranger in their home and it’s their move too. He managed to put their minds at ease that he was there to help. Our sale was anything but textbook. We had a buyer breach their contract. There was a lot of drama, stress, paperwork and the need to ensure our success if this went to court. Jason’s attention to detail on our contracts ultimately won our court case when we were forced to sue the buyer. He saved our purchase deal and worked in collaboration with our mortgage specialist and our lawyers to successfully ensure we didn’t breach our purchase contract. He has the patience of a saint and proved this when he showed us house after house. He was always happy to answer our questions and reassure us that it was all going to work out when the stress of our situation was becoming overwhelming.
One of Jason’s best qualities is his ability to be humble and admit when he doesn’t have an answer. We’ve heard other agents give an answer about zoning, permits, etc to their client that my husband knew to be 100% incorrect based on his knowledge as a result of his profession. I would be extremely angry if I bought a property thinking I could develop it based on the word of my agent. Although, the buyer should do their due diligence as well, some depend on their real estate professional when the agent speaks with such confidence. Jason was more than willing to ask the appropriate professional if he wasn’t sure of the answer. He always considered it a win/win situation because he was ensuring his client had the correct information and he was being educated for future reference. Knowledge is power. The ability to remove your ego from business is the sign of a true professional! Whether your house is worth $10 000 or $1 000 000, Jason will treat you and your sale/purchase with respect, professionalism and attention to detail. I never hesitate to recommend Jason. I regularly post his business card on my social media and I pin it to any public board I come across at stores, restaurants, etc. I think I have as many of his business cards as I do of my husband’s on me at any given time. Another quality Jason has is a strong sense of community. He’s always promoting local small business. There’s a genuine desire in Jason to see everyone succeed and live their passion. If we were to need a real estate professional again we would definitely secure Jason Wilson as our agent. We wish him nothing but success in his future endeavours.Bobbi and Darren M
I had a great experience working with Bryony Hawthorn on a deal in St.Catharines. She is a great communicator and kept in touch at every stage throughout the sale process. As a Realtor – I had a great experience working together with Bryony in a successful transaction in a timely manner. I know she treats her clients very well and offers great customer service. Looking forward to the next deal with Bryony! Thank you and congratulations!Daniel P.
I have had the great pleasure of working with Harvin, who represented me as the buyer’s agent. He is the perfect realtor, getting all of the information you need, taking you around, and giving you the space to make your decision.Debbie G
Thank you for your help on acquiring & selling my Niagara Falls vacation home! You put in a lot of effort to help me better position my purchase and make informed decision. Also, your help after the closure of the purchase is very warm-hearted. You made the whole process completely hassle free for us both times. I will definitely work with you going forward for my future purchase in the region and recommend you to my friends.
You are a great guy & exceptional realtor. I had wonderful experience dealing with you. I appreciate all the hard work you put into selling my property. You were always available and listen to all the concerns & helped sell the property for great price.Emidio I
Harvin You were quick to return calls and never out of reach. Your patience is remarkable. You were always on time. You made sure that paper work was in order, deadlines were met, and our closings went smoothly.
We also felt both transactions were handled in a very professional manner. Real estate information was clear and concise. Our questions and concerns were addressed promptly, and deadlines were met on time. Our closings on both properties went smoothly.
We wanted to thank you for your thoughtfulness, (going the extra mile to remedy concerns of the other party, (on your own time)). We have been telling our family and friends about the great service we received from Harvin Samara and we’ll continue to recommend you in the future.
Thanks again.Harjit/Gurdev Singh
Bryony Hawthorn was an absolute pleasure to work with . She put a detailed plan together after listening to our Real Estate needs that helped sell our house in only 48 hours! We utilized many of her connections from home staging, cleaning services, trades repairmen, mortgage broker and house inspector and she was there every step of the way to ensure we were on track. Not only did she sell our home but she found us our dream home and we moved in 22 days later. If you want your house sold – Bryony is the agent you need to contact first! Thank-you Bryony for making our families house dream come true!Tara and Brendon
Since recently getting married, we knew that the next step was to buy our first home. Bryony was right there ready to help us. As first-time home buyers, we were very new to the house hunting process but this was made easy to understand and enjoyable when working with Bryony! She definitely made sure we would be looking at houses that fit our criteria and budget and her priority was being sure the house would be the perfect home for us.
Thank you for helping us find our new home in Thorold! We are so happy to finally be moved in and very excited to start this chapter of our lives.
Thanks Bryony! 🙂Telisha & Derek
Randy and Debbie looked after an estate sale of our father’s home and provided excellent service. The time of listing to finalization of the sale was less than 2 weeks! This transaction was handled very professionally and everything from the staging of the home to the timely communication we received exceeded our expectations. It was a pleasure working with you.Bill and Don
Having never been through the process of buying a house, I found myself in the position of selling my mother’s house all of a sudden as she needed to move to an assisted living facility…and I was terrified. Tara was incredible. She assisted me every step of the way. I had a million questions and she always made me feel like she would be happy to answer a million more. She took the time to really listen and understand my concerns and offered advice that reflected that. What I particularly appreciated was her candid assessments of the different approaches we could take to sell my mother’s home and her encouragement for me to choose the one I was most comfortable with. It what could have been a very difficult process for me, her kindness, insightful advice and genuine care made all the difference. Thanks, Tara.

Thank you all for your help shining the light on domestic violence! It was an honour to partner with you for the Niagara River Lions game on IWD. Your incredible donation was a great surprise, and life changing for women and children who use our services. Women and children will be able to rebuild their lives free from abuse thanks to you and your support. We look forward to working with you again.Women’s Place of South Niagara
Thank you so much for helping us to find such a great home in St. Catharines. It was definitely an adventure, but we were very lucky to have such an amazing real estate agent to guide us through the ups and downs of buying a home.
My son introduced me to Scott last year when I was thinking of selling my home. My son was very impressed with Scott after he sold his house. I decided to see my home this summer and found out selling ones house can be a very overwhelming experience. Scott put me at ease and explained everything every step of the way. Every time I called he returned my calls promptly. I would highly recommend him without hesitation to anyone who is about to sell their home.Maureen
Jim and I want to thank you for your wonderful service and professional manner with the sale of our house. You have gone above and beyond your duties for us, and we thank you so much.Jim and Cheryl
When it came down to it and we finally decided to sell our first home, we chose the capable hands of Scott. We ended up with multiple offers and selling above list price. Being stressed comes with selling and he was with us every step of the way! His expert advice and calm demeanor puts you at ease with always being available when you’re having doubts or you’re just overwhelmed. I wouldn’t have chosen any other realtor to be batting in our corner– we trusted him implicitly. Thanks for always being straight up with us! Brian & Lindsey. Selling your house is a stressful and emotional experience. Scott made us feel that we were in good hands. His expertise, friendly professionalism and dedication provided us with full confidence in him as our realtor. We would highly recommend Scott Brenn.Victoria C and Darko M
Dear Ted, I felt I needed to write to you regarding my broker, Tara. I’ve just completed my second property closing in a year with her and what she brings to the table is really noteworthy, especially as both closings were challenging. I’ve thought about how I could best explain exactly what it is she does which is so unusual, and I think fundamentally it’s this: when I am working with Tara, in every single interaction with her I truly feel as though I am her only client, that she is as personally invested in my deal as I am, and that nothing in the world matters as much to her as getting everything exactly right for me. Every single interaction. When I recommend her to people, I don’t feel I am doing her a favour, I feel I’m doing THEM a favour by telling them about an absolute gem of a realtor. Please feel free to put all or any of this feedback on your site, social media etc. or if you’d like me to write a review on any media platform. Good people deserve to know about her! With warm regards, DawnaDawna
I worked with Tara to find my first home. She really listened to what I was looking for and we found the house that I purchased with all of the items on my must have list. As a first time home buyer Tara’s passion and experience in the industry was extremely appreciated and I can’t imagine going through this process with anyone else.Colleen Schenck
As a first time buyer my husband and I had no idea where to start when looking for a house. Tara came to our rescue! She found us the starter home of our dreams and helped in every way she could to recommend the best home inspector, mortgage company, lawyer etc. It was no surprise that 6 years later when we decided to move that Tara would be the one to list our house. She was amazing! It was like entrusting our home in the hands of a friend. She did everything under the sun to ensure our house sold and when it did, she was by our side during the buying process. Even being 6-7 months pregnant at the time did not slow her down. She met with us night after night and dealt with my constant texting until we found our perfect forever home, without one complaint! I would recommend her to everyone as the most professional and caring Realtor I’ve ever met. She was patient and encouraging during the entire buying/selling process and I don’t know what I would have done if I had someone else as my Realtor. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Tara for helping my family find their forever home.The Joly’s
I have been represented by Tara and Garden City Realty on two occasions now and would highly recommend her to my friends. In both selling my home and in helping me to find a new one she was professional and took the time to know what was important to me. She provides customer service at a very high level by returning calls quickly and making herself available on my tight schedule. Thank you Tara for being in my corner!Rick Smith
Tara Sabadin provided the type of service all first-time homeowners deserve. She took the time to get to know us, and our family, so that she could find the perfect home to suit our needs. She was quick to help out with anything we were questioning and was available whenever we needed her. Her investigations into homes of interest were thorough and informative. We found the perfect home and now have the excitement of making it ours. ReMax is a name you can trust to ensure the perfect match of home to homeowner.Katie Anne
Simply put, Tara has everything you could wish for in a realtor. She was responsive, motivated, informed and treated my home search/purchase with as much care as if it were her own. She found me my dream home and fulfilled my very long checklist even in a very hot seller’s market. She was ready with advice and ideas which ended up proving invaluable, and she made every phase of the transaction a pleasure. Top notch professional, highly highly recommend!Dawna Braun
Ted, Thank you so much for everything you did to find the perfect house for us. We could not have done this without you! You went above and beyond for us and we are so touched and grateful. We can’t wait to move into the house of our dreams and it is all thanks to you.
Beyond Grateful.Jen & Mark
I’ve known Jim Brown for about 15 years now and have found him to be a very knowledgeable, professional and caring Realtor®.Graham Ashdown – Grassroots® The Inspection Specialists
Jim’s confidence & real estate expertise is readily apparent in the needed time he takes with his clients, whether he’s explaining to his clients what it is they are buying or his thoughts as to the home’s condition or value. I know this as when I’ve done work for Jim’s clients they have already been informed of the home’s benefits along with any shortfalls it might have that require our company’s expertise. As such, Jim’s approach makes for an educated buyer and reduces their anxiety levels in what is likely the single largest investment of their lives. I am confident that Jim wants to make sure his clients get into the house that they want to live in, and not merely a house that will do for now.
It is without hesitation that I would recommend Jim to anyone buying a house!
Dear Jim Brown
I just want to say thank you very much for all the work you did on my behalf over the last year finding me just the right property
Jim worked hard and put in many hours making sure the deal I was getting was best for me. I was wanting to purchase a commercial building suitable to move my business into. An automotive shop has very particular needs and I had never purchased a commercial property of this size before. Jim has a lot of experience in commercial properties beyond his real estate experience due to his previous career in the fuel industry. His knowledge was especially helpful when it came to the environmental end of things and what to look out for.
Jim did a great job of dealing with the seller’s agent who was very lacking in professionalism. In one case. Jim ended up doing the things the other agent should have been doing but wasn’t, just to make sure I had all the information I should have.
In the end, Jim helped me to purchase a great property larger than what I required but within my budget. So, not only do I own a great commercial property, I also have great commercial space I’m renting out which helps pay for the building I’ve purchased.
Thanks Jim. I would not have gotten as great a deal without you.Stu Boyd – Boyd Automotive & Tire
Our family was in a position that we had to sell our home relatively quickly since we had already purchased another property. With Jim’s advise we were able to structure the sale at the best price for the market and have a quick sale. The expertise that Jim provided, helped us to close the deal without incident and have a stress free move. We value the time Jim spent with us preparing the sale and helping us to understand what was needed to get the deal closed. Thanks Jim! We are happy that you were there to guide us along the way.Chris Jameson
Scott really took the time to know what we were looking for, and was able to talk us through any potential house to ensure it was what we really wanted. He was prepared, and would know the available history on the house to save us any surprises, and really went the extra mile to ensure that we got just the house we wanted.JJJ
Scott is really hands on, and you will be made to feel like his number one priority.
Thanks for everything Scott – we’re very pleased!
There are countless realtors and firms from which to choose, and the experience can be daunting. This is possibly your greatest investment, not only financially but more so in terms of the quality of your family life. Ted came with the highest recommendation from two different individuals and I only had to meet him during the appraisal of my late mother’s property. It was one of the best decisions I made to work with Ted! He is highly personable, with such a positive attitude and sense of humour. He was patient and accommodating. I was especially impressed as to how well he appraised not only my needs but the style of the home I was seeking and the requisite neighbourhood. Ted was dedicated to providing the most current and insightful information regarding properties to facilitate my search. Above all else, and he consistently lent his expertise, knowledge and sage approach to the listing/purchasing process, bringing in a couple offers and enabling me to obtain great value in both my sale and purchase. All said and done, Ted is genuine and continues to be involved. You will not find a man more professional or competent and with any greater integrity! Thank you, Ted.Kelly McNaughton
My wife and I worked with Ted Boldt and his business partner, Heather, during our search for a new home. We were very impressed with how quickly they understood our needs. After one day together, Ted and Heather were able to provide a selection of additional houses to view which found our sweet spot. They are very likeable individuals which made the difficult process of house hunting fun. That said, we know we were receiving honest assessments of both specific properties and their communities in every respect. Their knowledge of the entire Niagara Region is invaluable. They were both extremely flexible and obliging, and accommodated our busy schedules and limited time to view homes. We always felt we were getting their full attention, and they followed up consistently on every commitment they made. Theirs is a business partnership that delivers effective, friendly, professional service to the home buyer. It was a pleasure working with them.Paul and Marlene
Being a first time home buyer and new to the Niagara Region I didn’t exactly have a firm understanding of the real-estate market and even where to begin. Ted was recommended by a colleague and good friend. Immediately he helped me discover the good areas of Niagara and helped me narrow down what I was looking for. I think he may have known better than I did what I was looking for and liked. He was incredibly patient with me, seeing countless homes assisting me to realize what it was I wanted and needed. After a lot of hard work Ted helped me purchase my perfect first home. I feel so lucky to have met Ted and feel a great friendship has been established. He is not only a great realtor he is a great person.Riona
Ted always made himself available. Whether we wanted to see a house last minute, or just had a random question. He was always there to guide us through the process of selling and purchasing our home. His advice throughout this whole process kept us grounded and got us our dream home! Thanks Ted!Adam and Brianna
It seemed as though Ted was always available to talk, text, and meet with; daytime or in the evening. Not only was Ted our realtor, he was a fantastic babysitter, advisor, and part-time painter. When it came time to put an offer in on our dream house, Ted did it in person. A strategy that paid off. Thanks for everything Ted!Chris and Laura
Ted is a man of his word, would definitely recommend him to anyone! Very happy to have used his services and would use him againDawn
I was a first time home buyer. I didn’t know what to expect and I was worried about making a bad decision. Ted gave me two things, his patience and his time. He worked tirelessly to help me find the starter home of my dreams. Never once did I feel pressured into buying a home. I could not have asked for a better agent to assist me with my first home. Thanks for all your help Ted! You deserve every bit of success that comes your way!Greg Pickering
As first time home buyers, we were overwhelmed by the whole process. Ted was referred to us by a very close friend and after meeting Ted for the first time we knew right away that he would be able to help us purchase our first house! Not only did Ted help us find the right house but we established a good friendship throughout the process. Ted was very patient and listened to everything we wanted. In the end, Ted’s knowledge guided us in the right direction to purchasing our first home that suits us perfectly. Thank you for everything you did for us Ted!Chris and Bailey
Working together for more then ten years, I have recognized the added values, that you bring to the table. When you are provided with a task, you are very positive and clearly responsive, not just to the task at hand, but what ever may be directly linked to the task. Over the years of networking, it has been extremely positive and a learning experience, that would only appear to get better.Kirk Fretz
When we chose Ted as our real estate agent, a lot of the stress of the prospect of selling our house dissipated. Why? We knew Ted would be thorough, attentive to detail, honest, completely trustworthy and would make our needs a priority. In other words, we knew that he would give 100% and that we would end up with the best possible outcome.Christina Durksen
Thank you Ted for selling my condo in just 5 weeks! That’s a record! I appreciate all your hard work, dedication and creativity. It certainly paid off. I will definitely be recommending you to my family and friends. All the best and many more years of success!Tara Colaneri
…Ted has a strong passion for his work that comes through when working with his clients and colleagues. Ted is very professional, and knowledgeable in his field, and will always give you 110% service. I have and will in the future recommend Ted to any clients who are in need of a Realtor…Anna Topolinsky
We have used Ted on a couple of occasions. One time was for some work, while the other time was simply for advice and a recommendation. The reason we asked for his advice was because of the trust that we had in him.Peter Partridge
I have had the pleasure to work with Ted several times. Ted is focused, undoubtedly intelligent and always thinking. His success in the past has come from hard work and great thought, and it makes such a powerful combination for someone who also has an easy smile and genuine personality. People gravitate to Ted because of these qualities. This is no small recommendation, yet I couldn’t do it any other way for him.Craig Riesebosch
Writing recommendations is not something I do on a regular basis. In Ted’s case, I could not write this fast enough. In your professional career, most of us will meet and work with only a small handful of leaders and influencers who have a profound impact on your life. I am humble to admit that Ted, to me, is one of those rare individuals who has had a significant contribution on my life. I would describe Ted as a person of character, ethics and most important, integrity. Here, in Ted, you have a person who is more concerned with your welfare than his own. I am grateful to call Ted a colleague and more importantly, a friend!Neil Thornton
