Testimonials

I would highly recommend John to anyone as he goes above and beyond what is needed to buy or sell a house/property.  John listens to your needs and helps to guide you through the process of your transaction.  He responds to your questions by email, text or phone quickly and always keeps you up to date on the market.  During your search to buy a home, he is great at keeping you grounded as he does not like to see his clients buy on emotion/impulse.  He is a professional, who is punctual, knowledgeable, reliable, honest, and thorough.

John truly cares about his clients and makes sure everything is up to par even after the deal is done.  He can connect you to people in the trades if you need to fix or make changes to your home and you can call him anytime for a recommendation – even years later.    His clients become his friends, whom he cares about deeply.  I cannot say enough to express how competent, personal, sincere and understanding he is to work with.  He is better than a 5 star!

We met Collette during a showing when we were looking for a house in Guelph. Although we could not buy that house, we were very impressed with Collette’s professional knowledge and demeanour. So, when we found another house we requested Collette to represent us. That deal went very well. After the purchase, Collette never lost touch with us and her advice came very handy in the settling process. 5 years later, when we decided to sell our property, Collette represented us again and through her guidance we were not only able to avoid steps that would have taken undue time and cost but also do things which really added value for the prospective new owner. We were able to sell our property quickly at a very satisfactory price. We have and would always recommend Collette to our friends and family to seek Collette’s help if they are looking to buy or sell a property in Guelph and adjacent areas.

Gina and I were just talking about this whole experience of moving from our home that we built 31 years ago. Bringing up our kids and all the memories of exciting things that we shared over the years.
We really wanted to thank you for helping to make this whole experience run so smoothly. With honesty and good solid advice, you and your team assisted us along the way.
It is so great to know that there are still good people out there in our community, as Guelph has always been my home but is growing so quickly and just not for us at the retirement stage of life.
Thank you for the lovely personal gift for us to enjoy together and celebrate our new adventure.
Wishing you and your team all the best in the years to come!

Thank you again for helping us find our home! It was a long 8 month journey and for that we appreciate Owen’s patience, persistence, and his calm attitude despite an often stressful market. Owen helped keep us level headed and reasonable throughout the offers and contracts. And now we have a home! We are so happy with what finally became our house and are glad we waited, and for Owen’s encouragement all along the way.

Nick and Jocelyn F.

The first few times that we met with Owen we weren’t even sure that we wanted to buy a house. Having not ever bought a house in Canada before we did not even know where to start. Owen explained everything very thoroughly to us, ran us through every step as we went, and narrowed our choices down to find exactly what we were looking for. We went to many different showings and throughout the whole process, Owen was very patient, kind, and told us everything we needed to know about each house. He walked us through all the paperwork and every contract that we had come by. After a couple of months of searching and figuring out what exactly we were looking for, Owen found us our perfect home. We are so thankful for all the hard work he did and feel so lucky to have worked with such a devoted individual. We highly recommend Owen to anyone looking to buy their perfect home!

This was our first home, hence we had lots of questions and wondered if our interests will be protected.  Owen was very professional – he knows his way around the contract documents and is a very good communicator.  He guided us through the entire process  – always keeping us in the loop of things and giving us regular updates even in the period that nothing was happening. We were continuously educated especially as the market conditions changed and we never felt like our interest was being jeopardized in any way. Throughout the process, he demonstrated his concern to ensure we got the best deal possible. Also, he was always ready to discuss what we wanted to do as things changed and he ended guiding us to a home that we love.

Owen and Lorna were great! They offered great advice and were always very accommodating to our needs which were often very short notice. They helped us find our new home and walked us through the process as first time home buyers. They were with us at every milestone from viewing, inspections, and the final walkthrough. They were kind enough to keep in touch after the purchase to make sure everything was going alright and would link us in with resources (plumbers, home inspectors) when we needed them. We are very glad that they were with us through the process.

Henry L. and Sheila L.

As a first time home buyer, I was unfamiliar with the entire process. Owen was extremely helpful in not only the purchase of my home but also taking me through the entire process of working with the bank, lawyers, moving, etc.. I would definitely recommend Owen to others as his professionalism and commitment were above and beyond my expectations.

We couldn’t have asked for a better realtor to guide us during our first home purchase. Collette was very professional and experienced, but also acted as a friend and supporter through the ups and downs of our search. In this competitive market, it is important to have an agent you can trust. Collette is someone you can absolutely rely on and her team at Royal LePage made the process stress free. Our first home ended up exceeding our expectations and feels like it was meant to be.

Emma T. and Taylor B.

Buying a new home can be a challenging experience but it was made so much easier thanks to Collette! Her experience and extertise was invaluable especially as first time home buyers. With her constant support and guidance we were able to find an amazing house that was within our price range and we couldn’t be happier with the service that she provided. After going through all of the ups and downs of the home buying process, we don’t just see Collette as our real estate agent but also as a close friend!

Teri and Scott O.

My wife and I were nervous when buying our first home, but then Collette came to the rescue! She answered the questions and concerns that my wife and I had, she gave us the information we needed and dedicated so much time to us to ensure we were comfortable in making a decision. She was always there when we needed her. Our experience with Collette was wonderful, her friendly and professional interaction with us was excellent. She made us enjoy the process of purchasing a home and if I ever need to use a real estate service again, she will be the person I look to every time. Thank you so much.

Israel and Marilu S.

Collette was fantastic to work with. She was very professional and knows the Guelph area very well. Collette helped us every step of the way and helped make our first house purchase a breeze. She took into consideration our likes and dislikes to make every viewing enjoyable. Collette was able to make this entire process stress free. Thank you again for all your help!

Emma M. and Joel H.

Owen was a pleasure to have as my real estate agent. Owen never left any questions unanswered and always responded promptly. This was not my first buying of a home but was the first time I really felt comfortable with the agent. Owen was always available and on time. Never rushed and was always honest. I highly recommend Owen as an agent and will be passing his name to family and friends.

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.

Kate and Daryl

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.

Mandy and Rory M.

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.

Bruce and Nancy K.

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.

Rhonda B.

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!!

Scott & Peter M.

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!

Jay M.

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!

Jenna T.

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.

Garry and Melissa

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.

Ron

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.

Alayne and Jesse T.

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!

Greg and Kelly

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!

Meagan and Jason S.

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.

Heather and Roger

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.
