Dear Alina (Dec)

We would like to thank you once again for your exceptional work in finding just the right tenants for our duplex.

We were a little apprehensive before meeting them but we could be happier!  They do seem like such nice and respectful people.

Please thank your colleague Monique as well.

It was my first house. This is something I knew nothing about, and you provided valuable assistance.

NORMAND DESHAIES

Our search of a condo began in mid-December. After a few visits to real estate developers and reluctant to the idea of buying new, we considered buying an already built condo. Since my husband and I aren’t very confortable when it comes to real estate, we prefer dealing with an agency. On a late Sunday afternoon, we popped at Royal Lepage Ville-Marie on Monkland av. and met with Norman Deshaies. We had just tried at an other agency closed on weekends.  Mr. Deshaies helped us through the whole process of finding a new home and made us feel confident and well guided at every step. His presence at several visits was very relevant: he asked questions that wouldn’t have even come to our minds! Thanks to his vigilance, we found the perfect condo for us! We also enjoyed his presence during the home inspection, it was reassuring. We are fully satisfied with the great service we had with the agency (and our agent) and we highly recommend it!

JOANNE DE SEVE

 
I am very happy with the professional service that I received from Ms. Joanne de Seve, real estate agent.  In a very difficult real estate market, Ms. de Seve diligently persevered in getting my condo sold.  Throughout the entire process, Ms. de Seve was unfailingly honest, hard working and professional.  She had an excellent understanding of my hopes and concerns and explained everything to me in a clear manner.  I would recommend Ms. de Seve to anyone wanting to engage a professional real estate agent. ”  —   Nancy Killam

 

” I was looking for a condominium in Montreal. I had very specific needs/wants and I am very difficult to work with. I found Joanne after terminating my first two agents who I felt lacked the necessary knowledge and the level of attentiveness I was accustomed to.  I was immediately impressed with Joanne’s knowledge of the market and her ability to understand my needs. I found Joanne to be readily available and able to work around my schedule without being overbearing and “pushy”.  Most importantly, Joanne remains available to assist me with questions I have at anytime even though the purchase closed 6 months ago. Joanne is a consummate professional who I have and will continue to recommend to my friends and colleagues.”  — Michael R. Schaffler  l  Director of Operations Hapag-Lloyd (Canada) Inc.

” Hi, Joanne!
I meant to send a thank-you note at the latest by Saturday, for all your help and support during our house-buying process (and especially for the food on Friday, which was very tasty and extremely thoughtful of you!).  Of course, unpacking (and wanting to unpack everything at the same time) and grocery shopping and 700 million other details got in the way and it’s only now, on Monday, that I have the chance to send you this note.
We’ve already got the third and second floors mostly set up, not entirely but enough to live and work in, and today someone came and hooked up our washer and dryer on the first floor so that I feel I can finally start setting up that kitchen at least.  When we’re all set up, we’ll have you over for coffee or wine and we’ll show you what we’ve done!
Your help in guiding us through this complicated and especially convoluted process

Having lost my mother, the next step in my father’s life was to sell his condo. At any given time, change is difficult however, this was truly a case of an elderly gentleman letting go of the past and moving forward. Rhea had come very highly recommended but one never knows a person until they “live” with them. With that said, Rhea in her most endearing manner, took the time to clearly explain everything to my father and made it a point of making certain that he understood and was in agreement with all recommendations she suggested. She never waivered from showing the utmost compassion and kindness given the situation and only wanted him to be comfortable with any decisions ultimately being made. In my mind, this was a real testament of what a true professional Rhea was, for it appeared that she was more concerned with his welfare than she was about closing the sale! Far too often, real estate agents are only there to “make the kill” and care little about showing humanity towards their clients.

In my mind, all of the above attributes made working with Rhea an absolute pleasure and I couldn’t thank her enough for being “who she was.” I would recommend her in a heartbeat and to this day, speak so fondly of her!!

As first time home buyers we had no idea how much there is to do when buying a house. I thought we find the one we want, negotiate on the price, get a mortgage, and then set a moving date!

Much to our surprise there was a lot more, however, Rhea prepared us for what was to come and helped us through it. Rhea made us feel comfortable and always gave us all the information we needed and more!

Without Rhea’s hard work and dedication I think we’d still be looking for our first home!

Hi Rhea,

This is just a quick note to let you know how happy we were with your handling of the sale of my mom’s condo.  Your guidance of how to price the property and when to put it on the market was invaluable and enabled us to get a very favorable deal. But perhaps even more importantly, you were on top of everything and made us feel as if you were handling the sale for your own mother.  You went above and beyond the call of duty in dealing with my mom’s building and we know it was your advocacy on her behalf that finally got them to take care of the necessary repairs.

Thanks again for everything!

It is with confidence that I recommend Rhea Dichter as an experienced agent.

Rhea sold my home quickly and found the condo that I wanted.

All transactions went smoothly.

Rhea told me what to do, and what not to worry about , and she took care of the rest.

Rhea is calm, a true professional, and a pleasure to work with.

My husband and I were pregnant with twins and needed to get out of our condo. While visiting an open house we met Rhea and formed an instant connection. She knew exactly what we were looking for and worked tirelessly day and night to find us our first home. She had such a wealth of knowledge about the properties we visited and a real passion for the job. We genuinely felt how much she cared about finding us the perfect home. She became more then just our agent, she is part of the family.

Bram & Sam


Being a first time home buyer without an agent was very daunting for us. Even though Rhea was the sellers agent we felt like she was working for us as well, always having our best interests at heart. She was honest, fair, straightforward and made us feel extremely comfortable with our purchase. If you’re looking for a real estate agent who has knowledge and integrity then you need to deal with Rhea.

Dina


From the moment I decided to sell my house, Rhea was committed to making it happen. Not only did she display a professional outlook but her sincerity and honesty paved the way.Her knowledge of the market is not only informative on a business level, but her intuitive skill for the clients both the seller and the potential buyers was most helpful.The difficult process of selling, negotiating, and finalizing, was simplified and uncomplicated due to Rhea’s commitment and support on a business as well as personal level .Robin
