"Thank-you. Thank-you. Thank-you.
We decided to hire you to help us sell our home after you came highly recommended by Jason McCaig. It was one of our best decisions…ever.
Our past experience with Real Estate agents was not super-positive so we approached our initial meeting tentatively. It became obvious during our first meeting that you had extensive knowledge and experience, and you shared your wisdom and opinions with us to help us set the right asking price for our home.
What set you apart during this process was the gentleness with which you dealt with us. Although selling and buying homes boils down to doing business, there are many emotional undercurrents that run throughout the transaction, from setting the right asking price, to discussing ways to make the home appeal to a wider pool of buyers, to negotiating through the offers. Knowing that we could trust your experience and opinions on the business side was a huge source of comfort, and the delicacy with which you handled some of the more emotionally charged moments really deepened my respect and appreciation for all that you do. I would recommend you to anyone who was selling their home. Your professional expertise, and calm, soft-spoken demeanor made a world of difference right from the time we first shook hands. I also deeply appreciate how available you always were – either by phone or email. I felt supported 24-7.
When it came to buying a house, I was confident that I would find what we wanted by surfing the mls and I invested hours doing just that….wasted hours. After visiting some of the homes that I “found” you suggested visiting one that you had found…and that was exactly the perfect home for us! You knew exactly what we were looking for and found us the ideal home, in our price range. There is nothing that you could have done differently to make the transaction more smooth or pleasant.
I have deepest respect for you and what you do. Your incredible wealth of knowledge paired with your warm, generous and truly caring personality makes for a winning combination for all of your clients.
I am truly happy that we had the opportunity to work together and look forward to doing business again in the future.
You rock Grant!"
"I would just like to say a public thank you to Grant who made the quest for my first home as painless as possible. Here were some of the advantages of having had Grant as my agent: he's patient and he's not pushy, he responds quickly to his messages, either e-mail or voicemail, he makes himself available for home visits and sometimes on very short notice too.
He's very thorough in his search for "your type of house in your price range" and won't push. As a first time solo buyer, I had many questions (and
worries) - he answered them all very knowledgeably. He also gave me excellent references in regards to home inspectors and mortgage brokers."
"We can't thank Grant Staley enough for all of his help and guidance in the purchase of our first house. When we first started our search for our dream home(within our budget) we were not sure where to even start! Grant had helped my parents find a house when we relocated back to the west island from Vancouver in 1998. My father insisted we contact Grant!
Grant really helped us every step of the way. He was very professional but not intimidating. He made us feel very important and we never once felt pressured. Even after a disappointing inspection on the first house we had put an offer on, Grant continued to arrange visits for us and soon after we found our new home.
Thank you Grant for all your time, support and kindness. You have really helped us make a dream come true. We continue to recommend you to everyone who is in the market to buy or sell a home!"

Grant has all the qualities you could wish for in an agent. He takes the time to listen carefully to all your needs, present and future, and doesn't stop until he finds exactly what you want. He answers all your questions clearly and ensures that you have all the information you need before you begin the process of buying. He truly understands and respects how important (and sometimes how intimidating) buying a home can be and he sets your mind at ease every step of the way.
One doesn't expect to find that kind of integrity, experience, and trustworthiness very often these days but we found all those qualities in Grant. He made our home - buying experience as stress - free as possible and sometimes, even fun and we couldn't be more grateful.
I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you for everything you did for me during the sale of my home! You made it a pleasant experience, right from the start; your patience & empathy were sincere, your explanations of the selling process very clear and understandable! Even when you sold my house so quickly, you were able to find me a new one which I absolutely love! You were always there with a solution to a potential problem, not that we had any, but there was nothing that you couldn't solve.
All the special things you did helped to make this experience a pleasant one for me. Your professionalism and attention to detail is extraordinary, please don't change!! You truly are an exceptional person to work with! You will be highly recommended to all my friends and colleagues.
Thank you again!
"We met Grant while searching for a home by the lake. We were so impressed by his professionalism,his knowledge of the market that we made sure he took care of the sale of our former home."
"WE decided it was time to downsize and like so many others we also ventured into the world of sell your own home. After an enormous amount of curiosity seekers, useless visits, loss time and bargain hunters, we decided to get a real estate professional.
We requested one agent from each of the best known real estate organizations. Presented our home to agents that came as interested parties to represent us in our sale. Filtering one professional out of the 5 different candidates was really quite simple.
Grant came back with his proposal and recommendations that truly seemed personal and not only professional. Everything we had requested was very clear, concise and inclusive. He was the only one that came back with comparables of value.
The sale of our home was a relaxing experience. Grant provided feedback as frequently as needed. An excellent communicator who truly understands his business and the market variations. Grant was outstanding in closing; an experienced negotiator , we believe we truly got the best value for our home.

"Enjoying life in Sudbury. Work is hectic, challenging and rewarding.
The move from Pincourt went without any flaws. Appreciated all of the regular updates on the sale and interest in our previous home, as well as the timely sale. Would definitely use your expertise again should we move back to the Montreal area.

"We just wanted to drop you a short note to thank you very much for your excellent service with our recent move. From the moment we decided to put our house up for sale, you guided us through the process in a very professional manner and you knowledge of the market helped sell our home much quicker than we could have hoped. We counted on you through the steps of listing, open house, reviewing offers, acceptance of the offer, and the signing of the documents at the Notary's office.
Thanks you also for putting us in contact with Sue Driver, our agent in the Whitby area. Through your contacts at Royal LePage, you put us in touch with Sue, and very much like you, she was very professional through the whole process of searching for our new home in the greater Toronto area.
Your guidance through a rather stressful part of our lives was one that we will never forget, and we have nothing but good things to say about the experience and would recommend your service at anytime.
Thanks again, and if fate decides that a return to the Montreal area is in the cards in the future, we will definitely be in touch.

"I and my family would like to thank Mr Grant Staley of Royal Lepage whose support was extra ordinary since we contacted him in Oct 07 from Singapore till we purchased a house through him.
The day we landed in Montreal he had arranged a hotel as per our request and in addition he had already arranged a few viewings since we were in constant contact with him from Singapore matching our preferences.
We purchased a house within two weeks of our arrival as he showed us the houses as per our liking and we were comfortable to make a purchase decision accordingly.
Beside buying a house through his outstanding support he also provided information on all the other matters as we were new in Canada including admission of our two daughters in the neighborhood schools.
Now Mr Grant is more like a friend to us and we still are in contact from time to time and seek his advice on different matters.
We highly appreciate his assistance and positive attitude in all matters we dealt with him and we highly recommend his services if someone is looking for a Real estate."
