John has been our realtor for close to twenty years. We have found John to be extremely knowledgeable about the local market. He does his homework, and as a native of Guelph, he knows the region inside and out. He has a good working relationship with other local realtors, developers and tradespeople. In fact, when we were selling our first home, John was able to arrange for us to have a small repair job on our roof completed immediately when we were struggling to find a roofer who had any interest in completing such a small job. His attention to detail is impeccable. This has been invaluable when searching for homes to meet our needs, during house viewings but also when putting together an offer to purchase. He is also one of the most honest individuals that I have ever met. He holds himself to a high standard of morality and honesty which are traits that are a must in a realtor. I never hesitate in recommending John to friends, family and patients.
Lorna was a very pleasant and friendly person to deal with. She was enthusiastic about selling our place. She took time to explain everything to us before we listed with her and she was always patient when answering our questions. She had a clear marketing plan for selling our house based on her proven success record. She showcased our house in multiple medias and after just one active week we had three offers from which we could choose a buyer. Lorna was a pleasure to deal with and we would gladly recommend her to family and friends. We would give her a 5 star rating.
I have over the last number of years dealt with John Clark on numerous real estate matters. John has that rare combination of being both very personable and professional with his clients. Moreover he is quite competent in the intricacies of real estate matters. Every real estate matter is different and yet he is quite able to anticipate issues and help you deal with those issues in advance.
We worked with Collette to purchase our first house. We were moving from our condo in Toronto. which sometimes made things difficult in the process. Collette was very flexible with showings and worked around our schedule when we could be in town. We had purchased a condo before but never a house. Collette was always reminding me of the important items while I was thinking about decorating 🙂 She had pointed out a number of issues with a few houses that we did not catch (roof, old furnances etc), She was always very honest about what she thought of the condition of the house and the price, We had very short closing on the our condo and our new house but everything went very quick and smooth. I hope we are not moving again soon, but if we do we will use here again! I have also recommended her to a few friends and wouldn’t hesitate to do it again.
We have found John Clark and his team to be very professional and straight up. They are driven to get results and at the same time are also very detail oriented. We have referred them to friends who like us have had a high end experience.
With-out a doubt I would strongly recommend Collette Aeschlimann as your real estate agent. It was Collette that truly gave us the feeling of a good personality fit. Her warmth and honesty was hands down the selling factor of why we chose her. She worked with us for one year of looking and bidding on many houses. The 3 of us found and my wife and I finally found and bought a great house in a great neighbourhood. One year of looking, over 100 homes. Collette was there and she never once faltered to provide to us her honest view of the home and if it would fit our comfort. Her patience, by far, is only one of many attributes she possesses. Attention to detail and great advice on what to look for, and of course to not get caught up in the craziness the Guelph market is. Thanks Collette – your truly are a star above the rest.
I was surprised and very pleased with the excellent service that Collette provided in helping me buy my first home. I work in the real estate industry and possessed certain biases before purchasing my home. I was humbled with the insight, expertise, and knowledge that Collette provided. For my purchase in particular, Collette made the recommendation that I obtain financing pre-approval and arrange a home inspection prior to making my offer. As Collette said, “In a very competitive market like Guelph, you gain a strong competitive advantage when you have the ability to submit a condition free offer”. Needless to say, I ended up winning the house that I wanted. Without Collette’s recommendations and insight, I cannot say I would be enjoying the home I am living in today. I would highly recommend Collette to anyone mindful enough to use the services of a Realtor.
I have obtained John Clark as my realtor for many years. He has provided excellent and HONEST service. Just recently he sold my parents home and he went above and beyond his duty as a realtor. He even helped my elderly Father shovel the driveway one day when he was over to the house. I would highly recommend John Clark and his team to anyone, buying or selling a home.
John, thank you very much for the superb level of service that you provided in selling our home. You did a fantastic job! We really appreciate the care you took in explaining everything to us, and your very honest and straight-forward approach. You were obviously on top of everything from start to finish and always kept in touch with us throughout the process. You are the best!!
Our first experience with Collette was amazing! She genuinely cares about you as a person and finding you a home that suits your specific needs. We must have went through 20-25 homes before we found the perfect fit. My favourite part of the experience was Collettes honesty. She would let you know if the home was overpriced or if there were problems with the home…. which certainly was appreciated. I would recommend Collette to everyone!
Our experience with Collette was excellent. I was a first time home buyer and Collette took the time to explain all aspects of buying your first home. She came to countless house showings and was very flexible in working with my schedule. Collette was very personable and knowledgeable throughout the whole process. I will definitely use her in the future and would recommend her to all!
Lorna was the perfect agent for my fiancée and I. She had worked with my fiancée in the past (long ago) and he knew she would be the right fit for us. Lorna has a keen sense about her clients. Is able to quickly determine what is right or not right for her clients and even offers suggestions that we didn’t think of without compromising our needs. Lorna is highly motivated and to the point — which was perfect for us. She is very familiar with the Guelph neighborhoods and is able to pinpoint homes that fit our needs. Her knowledge of the industry is very apparent and we appreciated her expertise. She walked us through each step of the process with patience and kindness. In turn it made this experience easy and dare I say fun. I highly recommend Lorna if you are looking for an agent that will be honest, motivated and dedicated to finding the right home….not just any home!
John has managed several real estate transactions for us over a number of years and we have always been very happy with his level of professionalism, honesty and integrity. His knowledge and vast experience of the industry and market ensured that we were well represented. We have also referred friends and family to him and always received positive feedback. He is an excellent communicator and negotiator who provides sound advice.
We have turned to the expertise and thoroughness of John Clark from Royal Lepage Realty multiple times for both residential and commercial real estate purchases. We wouldn’t put our trust in anyone else after seeing firsthand the level of professionalism and courtesy of Mr Clark.
Our experience with Collette was a very positive one. Collette is well researched, knows her area very well, and has a firm grasp of real estate law. She is not pushy and never overbearing. She will take the time to find you a home that meets with your expectations and preferences and takes pride in finding the right house for you. Her genuine interest is to marry you with a home that suits your needs and lifestyle.
John is an excellent realtor. John has helped us immensely over the years. Before purchasing our first home he was patient in showing us several different properties until we found our perfect house. 6 years (and four kids later) he helped us find a bigger forever home. John not only listed our home within hours of our wish, but sold our home in four days. While purchasing our new home he was professional, polite, organized, and provided a service that was definitely above average. We have recommended John to friends on several occasions and will continue to do so! Thanks for making our experiences so easy and fun!
I worked with Collette to sell my condo and purchase our current home. Collette made the transactions seamless and efficient. She is very knowledgeable in the competitive marketplace, valuations, marketing and at all times exudes professional conduct. She makes selling and/or buying a positive experience. I have recommended Collette to many friends and will absolutely use her again!
In the last 5 years I have bought several homes with Lorna. She is one of the most honest and ethical people I have ever met. What a great combination to find in an agent ! She has the experience and support staff needed in this highly competitive market. I have and will continue to recommend Lorna!
I have known John Clark for 11 years over which time he has helped me purchase four homes and sell three homes. I was referred to John through a family friend and I am so glad that I was able to have John by my side throughout these events in my life to help guide me in making the right choices in real estate. John is very honest and straightforward and always has his customers best interest at heart. He is very patient, and understanding when it comes to making the best choice for my family. His knowledge in the marketplace as well as general inspections of homes always made me feel confident with his recommendations. I have also had the pleasure of working with Lorna Ronald and Collette Aeschlimann as part of the Royal Lepage team and the quality of service and support was always amazing. John has become a great friend and someone who I trust completely, and I recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
John Clark has provided exceptional service for our real estate needs over the past few years. His professional approach and quick responses to any questions or issues that arise make the process seamless. John’s many years of experience in the business are a tremendous asset to have on our side.
