Testimonials

A few CLIENT TESTIMONIALS ________________________________________________________________________ "Marion and I would like to thank Lorraine and her team for the excellent advice and care she gave us when selling our house. We really appreciated her hard work, long hours and friendship." Marion & Russ __________________________________________________________

"Lorraine really went above and beyond for my family and during my most stressful moments (and there were quite a few) she always, always calmed my fears. She understood and took into consideration not only my concerns and my husband's concerns, but also the concerns I had for my children and their feelings about selling and relocated to a new area. I cannot say enough about the wonderful service, respect, and attention that Lorraine showed to myself and my family. Thank you Lorraine." Ben & Denise --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“We thank you for your work on selling our house. We appreciate your commitment to not just getting it done but to get it done in such a professional way!! We would be happy to be used as a reference for you and /or will most certainly send referrals your way! Thanks again and likely see you soon!” Sandra & David _________________________________________________________

"Lorraine's motto should be if you want to sell your house choose Lorraine! I had chosen Lorraine as I noticed that she does a wonderful job with marketing. There was not a week that went by that I did not see our home in two well circulated real estate magazines (one in our area and another that is circulated in many different areas). From the beginning Lorraine was helpful - she viewed our property and made invaluable suggestions on improvements we could make to make our home more saleable. She was right on the money with the figure she came up with, knowing what price range houses tend to sell at in our area. Lorraine was always positive during a very stressful time. We had purchased a house in Lakefield, before we had sold our house in Marmora, so we stood to have to carry two mortgages. But thanks to Lorraine she sold our Marmora home!” Happy Couple in Lakefield, George and Diane _______________________________________________________________________

"Lorraine Kuschmierz is more than just a realtor; she is a caring, friend with professional expertise bar none. Lorraine recently held our hands through the sale of our family home and the purchase of a little retirement home in the country with all the right guidance and advice needed to make the right decisions. Lorraine, showed us the real value of our home and then showed it to the world, finding us the right buyers. She guided us on our presentation of the home and helped us during our final decisions with care and concern. Lorraine brought something special to this very emotional time in our lives, she brought the human touch and we will be forever grateful." Peter and Laura ________________________________________________________

"Lorraine was amazing when we bought our first house and again when we sold it and bought another house. The first time we only looked at 3 or 4 houses and the second time we only looked at one house! She really listens to what you want and doesn't try to show you things that are way out of your price range or something that you just would never be interested in. She's really understanding when it comes to the stresses of purchasing a house and even called our bank when they were taking too long with the mortgage information. We were so lucky to get Lorraine to help us with our first purchase and wouldn't have had anyone else take care of our second move.” Sarah and Matt _________________________________________________________

“We would like to thank Lorraine and her team for the excellent assistance in selling our Belleville property quickly and efficiently and to our satisfaction.

“When we read the testimonials on Lorraine’s web site we wondered, ‘Can Lorraine be as good as everyone here has said?’ Well, thinking back on the events of buying a house in Belleville in January while living in Kincardine, the land of closed roads in winter, I have to say ‘yes’ these testimonials are accurate and some even understated. We couldn’t have bought the house without Lorraine’s help and encouragement. For this we want to thank her from the bottom of our hearts. Her professionalism is what we first noticed about her and the effort she puts into her web site reflects that as well. Lorraine’s love for her job and for people shows by the results she gets. We can see why many of her clients also become her friends. What more can we say, except ‘Thank you Lorraine K. ” Gary & Joanne ______________________________________________________

. “We met Lorraine and knew quickly she would take great care of us. She quickly learned our personalities, likes and dislikes, and knew what would be perfect for us. Her outgoing, positive personality, dedication, exceptional knowledge made our experience both smooth and exciting." Bonnie & Graham _________________________________________________

“Lorraine works so hard and has taken such great care of us throughout this stressful experience. We are so grateful for all the little extras she does. We will be recommending her to all our friends." Diane & Wilf ________________________________________________

"I am just writing to thank you, on behalf of myself, Jennifer and Brittany, for your services in not only finding our new house, but in selling our old house at a moment’s notice. Listing on Tuesday and selling to one of the first couples who came through the house that day was something we didn’t expect would happen. You made the process of listing and selling somewhat trivial for us. You helped us set a price and a marketing campaign that pretty much guaranteed our house would sell. Your help with the final house staging was a perk we didn’t expect and your attention to detail is something we all appreciate. On the first day of showing, we had a large mirror and a large piece of artwork we had planned on putting-up but did not have a chance. When I came home that night I realized that Bernd had taken the time to not just hang the artwork but install the necessary anchors and hardware so they would be secure. This type of concern for the homeowner is definitely why our house sold as quickly as it did. Without your help in preparing our offer to purchase, I believe we would have lost the house we now own as there were multiple offers to compete with. You selected a house which we might not have considered on our own based on ‘specs’ and outward appearances. If not for taking the time to get to know us, to know what we were looking for (even if we didn’t) our new house might have slipped away from us and we would still be looking. We are really enjoying our new house. But not for the garage, the extra rooms, or my new office, not for the neighborhood, the view or the double-car driveway, we are enjoying the chance to make this house OUR HOME. Again thank you for your time, energy and patience." Michael, Jennifer and Brittany ____________________________________________________________________

“A simple thank you is not enough to express our true appreciation for all of your hard work & patience! We would not be in our new home if it wasn’t for your unending help and support! Lorraine works so hard and puts in endless hours taking care of ‘her people’! You guys are the Best! Thanks again." Tyler, Sarah, Abby, Jeramie & Julianna Layman ________________________________________________________

“You all worked so hard for us to be able to buy and sell it such a short time. We really appreciate it! Thank you so much.” Jeneanne & Jamie _____________________________________________________________

“The only word to describe Lorraine is AWESOME. We couldn’t be happier.” “Thanks so much and may the phone calls never end!” Trevor and Shelley (This client had a complete stranger approach them and ask about Lorraine as a realtor. This client highly recommended Lorraine to this person and has now listed their home with Lorraine.) __________________________________________________________

“I am pleased with the service and dedication I received in listing, marketing and selling of my house and the assistance and guidance in the purchase of my new home. Lorraine exceeded my expectations of a Real Estate agent… Everything I asked for was done without hesitation, and what was promised was done promptly and things I never thought of were done to assist in the marketing of my home. I want to extend my appreciation for all your efforts and that of her team.” David (This was in a letter sent to Mark Rashotte of Royal Lepage ProAlliance) ___________________________________________________________________________

“Lorraine made us feel very comfortable and confident…. Not like working with a Realtor, more like being with a friend. Thanks again." Claude and Theresa ________________________________________________________________

"Hi Lorraine, just a short note to express our thanks and appreciation for your efforts in the purchase of our new home. It was clear very early on that your knowledge of the local market and realty law is profound. That was comforting feeling for us as we could count on you to ensure that we’d get the best home possible while ensuring all proper procedures were followed to safeguard the purchase. Your assessment of our needs was huge in ensuring we selected a home that matched our requirements and lifestyle. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to others in their efforts to buy or sell a home. On a personal level, Anne and I have to regard you and Bernd as friends. Your continuing offers of advice and support while getting settled in is comforting to both of us. Your recommendations for trades people to assist us in upgrades to the house were very helpful. It is our sincerest hope that we keep in touch and can get together once the “crazy” season cools down in a bit." Warmest regards, Rick & Anne (Dupuis) ____________________________________________________

"Lorraine, I wanted to send a little thank you note to let you know how much Eric and I appreciated your help in purchasing our “New” home on Wilson Road. You and Kelvin made the process quite easy. Also, without your help and a lot of patience I probably wouldn’t be living in that house right now. You went over and above your “duty” as a real estate agent to get my house sold at the other end, even though you were not the listing agent. As you know that process was extremely difficult for Eric and myself….the market took a shift for the worse at that time, and the agent that I was using to sell my house in Pickering was not very helpful at all. All I had to do was make a couple of phone calls to you and you just took over and made her understand what was happening. And, because of those phone calls you made to her, “you” made our house sell. There is one thing that you do that other agents don’t do and that is to keep in touch with people after the process of buying and selling their home is over and done. On the day of closing Bernd dropped by with your 2 daughters with some food, like he knew we would be starving and needed nourishment…what a kind thought. We will never forget that. Also, on a personal note I wanted to thank you and Bernd and your family for your continued friendship and support. We are still friends and that means a lot to me." Sincerely, Lucy ___________________________________________________________________________

"Lorraine and Sydney, it has been such a great experience working with you in both the sale of my old home and purchase of my new property. As someone who is very inexperienced in real estate, you had the patience and expertise to walk me through everything involved in the whole process. You both were extremely helpful in negotiating the sale of my home. I was able to get full price after having it on the market for less than a week, although it was a long night of negotiations with the other realtors. Lorraine was incredible at going through the offers and finding clauses that were not in my best interest and changing them. I felt so comfortable having someone with so much knowledge and experience on my side. Sydney has been very helpful in finding me my very first investment property. I have read books on a real estate investing program and when I mentioned that to Sydney I was very pleased to find she has extensive knowledge in that program. We searched for properties that fit the system and she walked me through everything I needed to take into consideration. Lorraine was also very helpful in this area with her experience in real estate investing. Overall, I just felt that they genuinely cared about me and it showed through all of the extra work they put in for me. I would strongly recommend (and already have) Lorraine and Sydney to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a property." Greg Gaylord
