Every real estate company has a boilerplate statement about how and why they offer the best solutions for clients. The same can't be said for client testimonials. These statements are indicators of service and quality, which is why they've become so popular in helping future customers make decisions about who to choose. It's raw feedback in the customers own words - so you don't have to guess what other people experienced before you make a final decision about who will be in your corner.
OVER AND ABOVE - "Gary was more than helpful in the purchasing of our new home and the selling of our home. We couldn't be more pleased and would recommend him to anyone looking to sell or purchase."
- Marilyn Vanlaar
WONDERFUL HELP IN DOWNSIZING - Almost one year ago Gary Bain helped us find a villa to down size to from our old home. We had been in our home for 41 years so it was quite an undertaking. He encouraged us and we had bought the villa of my dreams in a day. Then listing our house he had a buyer for us in 3 days. He encouraged us and helped us in so many ways and was always available to take our calls and lead us through paperwork that we were really not familiar with. He explained things to us that we really had no knowledge about and we know now that without him things would have been much harder. We are so happy in our villa and consider ourselves very lucky that Gary was there to make this transition so much easier. The whole process was a happy one and we look forward to many years in our new home.

UP TO UNIQUE CHALLENGES - "We would like to extend a note of thanks and acknowledge the exellent service you have provided in both the sale of our Wentworth hom and the purchase of the Pt. Mckay Condo. The Wentworth home presented a very unique marketing challenge that you managed in such a professional and competent manner (from listing to sale). The condo purchase was also a pleasant experience from initial offer to closure. We would be happy to share our experience with any future clients and will certianly refer any Real Estate business to your company."

SOLD WITHIN DAYS - "Never in our wildest dreams did Mary and I envision our house being sold within days and suitable housing being found in that same short time span. We would once again like to thank you for making all this happen. The professional manner in which you handled everything that goes with selling and buying certainly made this easy for both of us. When friends heard how quickly our property sold and that you had found us the perfect place to move into, we naturally gave you as a reference. It is our hope that you will be hearing from them in the near future."

We would recommend Mr. Bain to anyone selling or purchasing Real Estate."

THE NEGOTIATOR - "It is with great pleasure that we have the opportunity to offer a letter of referral to Gary Bain and GM Bain Real Estate Services Ltd. The Real Estate market is not something that one can navigate easily, and having someone like Gary Bain act on your behalf is the first and best decision you can make. In September 2008 we contracted with Gary Bain to conduct the marketing and sale of our Scenic Acres property. We had the choice of other realtors, both friends and strangers, but choose Gary based on his apparent real estate knowledge and friendly style. At that time, the real estate market was under going severe and dramatic changes in market conditions. Had the needs of our family for a new home been so great, the market trends alone would have convinced us not to seek a new property at that time. My wife and I met with Gary. We learned of his experience, expertise and knowledge in the real estate market, then decided to contract with him to sell our Scenic Acres home. Gary took the time to assure us of his ability and forecast what he saw as the future in the real estate market. He offered us some expertise on how we should conduct ourselves in regards to first selling our house, then seeking al new home following the sale. He accurately predicted the way the market would react, and how e could best benefit from the expected activity surrounding its behavior. He was realistic and accurate in his appraisal of the sale value of our home and the market conditions as they evolved. Gary put together a vigous media campaign alone with a series of open house events and showings to market our property. He was able to find the client that would eventually wish to own our property. At the close of the sale on the Scenic Acres property, he was able to secure multiple clients which to our good fortune ended with a bidding frenzy. With the successful sale of our property, Gary continued to labour towards discovering a new home for us. We had been searching for a property during the sale of our existing home against Gary’s better advice. When we discovered another property that we had hoped to purchase, all manner of unexpected issues cropped up. This was probably when we realized how essential it was for us to have Gary operating on our behalf. Legal issues, tenant issues, and market timing were against us in this potential purchase. It was only with Gary’s skilled negotiation that we were not homeless on the street – or stuck with a property and an unwanted tenant. Gary or a member of his team was available at a moments notice to help us with quick decisions and short deadline dates. Thank you Gary, that was a close call. With the time to move rapidly approaching, Gary was confident he would find us the new home of our desires. With the home I had hoped we would purchase now off the market, I was convinced that Gary would find us a suitable replacement. After taking us to a number of showings, and re-examining a host of listings. Gary was able to find us a better home, and negotiate a better price with a more workable possession date than we thought possible. The home Gary suggested contained a few more amenities and better features that we had desired. Had we not lived through this process, I would not have thought it was possible. For those prospective home sellers or purchasers, we would like to offer a word of endorsement for Gary Bain and GM Bain Real Estate Services Ltd. Gary offered us outstanding and exceptional service. Finding a realtor was easy, finding the BEST realtor is as easy as calling Gary Bain. One last word; GM Bain Real Estate Services Ltd, also has the staff to help you in securing a mortgage or other banking expertise if you so desire."
