"Our success is based on your happiness"
Over 95% of our business comes from referrals and repeat business.
Here's just a bit of what our clients have to say about us:
"Dear Adrianne & Johanna,
We would like to thank you for all your hard work, dedication and most importantly professionalism that you have demonstrated prior, during and after the sale of our home. As you know you were one of 3 agents that we have interviewed and you have impressed us the most. Not with big editorials, statistics or any other sales tactics, but by being very honest and up front with us.
From the very first day we felt that you had our best interest at heart! This was our 4th home and we have never felt so comfortable with any other agent before. You truly demonstrated what it means to "deliver on your guarantees and promises". It really was the first time that we have not felt any stress or pressure to sign on the dotted line.
We are convinced that it was your dedication, pro-activeness and excellent service that sold our home in 4 days and for FULL price!
We would definitely recommend you to our friends and family and we would be happy to give references if anyone asks for them.
Thank you again to you both and we are sure we will work together in the near future again."
- Bozena & Shane G., Markham
"We'd like to extend a sincere thanks for helping us sell our place. It was a really smooth experience, and you were really integral to the whole process. Where to begin? You prepared a very thoughtful analysis on the pricing, which was great. It wasn't ridiculously ambitious, but it didn't underestimate the market value either. It's a tough market to price things, and you did a great job. In terms of staging our place, you couldn't have done a more fabulous job. The amount of care and attention you devoted to getting it ready for sale was amazing. Special thanks for resolving the whole rug saga! It was a tiny but important detail, and you resolved the problem for us so that we didn't have to worry. Our place couldn't have looked better. (Sadly, it has gone back to kid-central, but at least we have the pictures as a keepsake!). If someone didn't know any better, the amount of care you gave it was as if you were selling your own personal property.
Your responsiveness and steady stream of feedback during the whole process was fantastic. I loved that we could e-mail you anytime, and you always responded so promptly. You didn't even get irritated when we continuously harassed you about the status of the condition on our offer! Seriously, you kept us in the loop on everything that was happening. I also felt that you were realistic about feedback and didn't "sugar-coat" the negatives. But you were also reassuring. That was extremely important to us.
Finally, we are very happy about the price that we received. It really boiled down to the initial sale price, and the second offer that you helped bring to the table. You handled it strategically, and we trusted you during the process - especially one that was new to us.
We'd recommend you in a heartbeat to any of our friends and colleagues. And I hope that you get a million calls from our building who are looking to sell their properties soon!
I'm sure I'm missing more feedback, but I think you get the gist.;-) Thanks again from all of us."

"We have been dealing with Johanna and Adrianne Parker for a few years to handle our real estate transactions in purchasing, selling and renting our properties and have been very pleased with the services they provide. Not only are they professionals in their field but they are conscientious, efficient, trustworthy and ethical agents.
Johanna and Adrianne have provided us with consistently high quality service and followed up on our queries in a timely and efficient manner. They are always there for you, working on your behalf.
They seek to understand their client’s requirements and work hard to achieve the best results. Last spring they marketed our home and we were delighted with the final outcome. There were multiple offers which turned out to be better than the asking price and our home sold in 2 days.
We highly recommend Johanna and Adrianne and certainly plan to continue doing business with them."
-Margaret & Jacques DeMontigny, Markham/Toronto
"We would like to take this opportunity to thank you both for your hard work, professionalism and dedication in helping us sell our house and purchase the home of our dreams. Johanna, our two plus year journey started with you suggesting improvements to our home that would bring us our greatest return. Then we set out to find just the right house to satisfy our many and unique needs.
During this lengthy process you were always cheerful, positive and patient. Finally, we found the perfect house and you were instrumental in our purchase of this home both during the negotiations and home inspection.
The selling of our house was a whirlwind. Receiving three offers over the asking within one day was more than we could possibly have dreamed of. We attribute this to the suggestions made to upgrades, a terrific MLS listing on the web, a quality brochure and listing at the right price. Adrianne, your professionalism, assertiveness and friendly smile afforded us a very positive outcome.
We have recommended your services to family and friends. Again, thank you for everything. All in all it was a very pleasant experience."
- Sincerely, Rick and Linda Chase, Markham
"When we were just starting to look for a house, Johanna instantly took us seriously, and set up a sequence of relevant viewings in the weeks to come. She was ever the professional; making time, setting up appointments and understanding our interests. Having found one to our liking, Johanna and her associate, Adrianne, marketed our house such that we had competing offers with a week of listing. They were wonderful people to work with."
- Kim & Gail Aagaard, Stouffville
"Adrianne had made buying our first home such a pleasant experience that we didn't think twice when it came time to sell our house and find a new one. Over a seven month period of searching, she worked hard for us and maintained a professional and positive attitude, even when we changed our minds about what we wanted. More than just marketing our house and doing research on the area, she got to know the people on our street so well that she was able to identify the best potential buyers at our open houses, based on how their goals and personalities matched up with our neighbourhood. From her advice on how to stage our home, to baking cookies, to charming the visitors with her natural enthusiasm, Adrianne got us well over our asking price in just 2 weeks.
We then needed to get a house within a month. Because she had spent so many months working with us, she recognized the perfect house the moment she saw it, before it was publicly listed. On the offer night, there were 8 'bidders', and her down-to-earth and warm personality helped make our bid the winning one, despite the fact that our offer was almost identical to another.
Adrianne displays excellent judgment, knowledge and negotiating skills. But what sets her apart from other agents is her passion, her intuition and her true focus. Her goal is simply to find the right solution for her clients. Adrianne will always be successful, because she does what she loves, and she does it for the right reasons. Working with her made us successful, too!"

"We received excellent and above & beyond efficient service - more than we had expected. Johanna & Adrianne are two agents that are not only super at what they do, but go far beyond in their caring & thoughtfulness. Jim had a recent heart attack and they did everything they could to keep the stress at a minimum, bending over backwards, keeping in constant touch... we both felt so confident that our goals & dreams would be reached. Nothing was too much trouble for either of them. We and other family members have worked with Johanna before and now we are just as impressed with Adrianne. What a team!"
- Jim & Brenda Penny, Markham
"At all stages of the process, we felt comfortable speaking honestly and respected and appreciated Johanna & Adrianne's professionalism. It was clear that they had our best interests in mind - an enormous comfort when the financial (and emotional!) stakes are high.
Johanna and Adrianne went above and beyond the call of duty to help us find a temporary home before our new house was ready. They are a strong and classy team and we will think of them in the future when friends & family are in need of agents."
- Drew & Angela McNaughton, Markham
"We were living in downtown Toronto and had been looking for a new home in and around Unionville for several months, before we met Johanna. Her diligent and consistent follow up, personal touch and patience in taking the time to understand our needs, led us to purchasing our current home. Along with our two boys, we moved into a great 'pocket' where we've settled and made more friends with the surrounding neighbours than we ever would have dreamt. We would happily recommend Johanna to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling their house."
- Debbie, Rudi, Jared & Reece Bester, Unionville
"We have experienced a longstanding relationship with Johanna Parker in both buying and selling our residences. Most recently, we sold our home through Johanna and Adrianne Parker in May 2004. As always, we were more than impressed with their impeccable orientation to all details, extensive knowledge of the Markham real estate market and professionalism.
Overall, our experience with Johanna and Adrianne is one that is both genuinely personal and very businesslike. They seem to balance these techniques artfully and without effort. We would not consider using any other agents for our future transactions."
- Tony Smith and Lori Berenz, Markham
"Words are not enough to say 'thank you' for all of their patience and hard work. Johanna and Adrianne are amazing. I appreciated their honesty, organization & negotiating skills."
- Ms. S Scott, Markham
"Johanna has walked us through a couple of moves. She was always responsive to questions and issues that arose in the sale and purchasing of our homes. She took the time in helping out in anyway that was needed. She made helpful suggestions about things we might do to make the house more attractive to prospective buyers. Both times the homes were sold in a matter of weeks and we were satified with the prices received."
- Naomi & Bill Yuille, Markham
