“…Our farm sold in just over 4 weeks…”
We first met an agent from the Signature Sold Team at an open house. He showed us some houses and was great at answering my questions. When we told him we would soon be ready to list our farm, he suggested we consider his team. Nadene came to our farm to give us an approximate listing range. She was very thorough and did her research before giving us a listing price range. She gave us hints as to what to focus on in order to list as quickly as possible.
Our farm sold in just over 4 weeks. However, just before closing the buyers asked for an extension. After several extensions, they backed out. Nadene relisted our property right away and got us several offers fairly quickly. It resold again in a couple of months.
Nadene was very kind and understanding and was very supportive during our "mess" of not closing and having to relist. We were very grateful when it did sell and close a few months later.
I would highly recommend this team to anyone with a house to sell.
We've worked with a lot of people over the years. Many of them were so happy with their experience they've even taken the time to tell you about it… have a look at what real clients think of our services! If you have your own feedback you'd like to share, submit your own testimonial here!
“Always keeping us informed…”
Highly recommended!. This team has sold 2 of my houses and were right on top of everything. Always keeping us informed of what was going on. Even with all their other listings they kept my house still a top priority. Nadine is very professional and great to work with!
“…sharp, efficient, people you want to be friends with.”
I cannot say enough about the professionalism yet friendliness of this team ... small town values, treat you like you matter, sharp, efficient, people you want to be friends with after the purchase/sale .. I think its the last point that makes this team one that I have and will keep recommending over and over again to people
“They make things happen….”
Awesome team to work with especially Nadene who I dealt with mainly while selling my house in wasaga beach. They got me the best deal financially, were very accessible and the energy and effort they put into selling my house was incredible. Home décor and presentation was very nice. They make things happen and are definitely the team to go with whether you are buying or selling. Thank you for all your help and expertise. It was fun working with you and your team.
“….. felt that you had our best interest in mind”Pat and I thought that you (Kristina), Nadene and your team were the best agents that we have ever dealt with over the years. We always felt that you had our best interest in mind. Your team would be the first that we would call if we had another deal going on.Thank you so much for all your hard work.
“She is genuine and tremendously hardworking”
This note is a little tardy getting to you since Nadene sold my father’s house a month ago, but I really wanted to let you know how lucky you are to have her representing your Brokerage.
It was an emotional ride going through the paces of selling a family home and I can’t express how lucky we were to have her on our side too.
Nadene’s energy is endless, she is always positive and her customer service is phenomenal. Not only is she extremely astute in her job, but she has the empathy to keep her customer well balanced in a process unfamiliar, especially when it comes to all the legal aspects of closing.
I have come from a highly customer oriented profession and am always looking for people like her. I know that Real Estate is very cut throat and we did encounter some very unethical situations with other agents and their clients and I was extremely impressed with the way Nadene provided resolution. I am responsible for hiring every day for my company and find it very difficult to find gems like her (I used to recruit Real Estate Agents actually in my past life). I assess people all day long and she is very genuine and tremendously hardworking. She has amazing follow up, strong attention to detail and well developed interpersonal skills.
A huge weight has been lifted from us, so on behalf of myself and my family, we want to recognize Nadene’s strong leadership and send a big thank you to her for taking such broad steps to communicate with us regularly as well as deal with the crazy going on. I have already started to share my experience with my network and hopefully will be sending more business to your brokerage.
“Thanks for the use of your moving truck…”
A quick thank you for all your help on the purchase of my new home. So far things are great, I am really enjoying it here. Thanks for the use of your moving truck, it saved me a lot of money and hassle. I can't express how thankful I am for all your hard work and dedication to finding me a place. It's appreciated. Hope to keep in touch!
“… completely satisfied.”
We want to thank you both for a job well done. The purchase of 234 Golf Course Road on April 15th could not of been handled any better. Right from the offer to purchase to the lawyer to the day of closing every aspect was handled very professional and courteous. Any questions we had were answered right away and to our satisfaction. The flowers on moving in was such a nice gesture it made us feel so good as well as our whole family which were here at the time. They were impressed as well. Nadene what you have done for us after closing has been overwhelming. To anyone that is looking for an agent we would highly recommend your Wasagalife team. Carl & I have been completely satisfied. THANK YOU again. We love our new home and our new town.
“… appreciated your expert advice …”
Just wanted to thank you both again for all your help with our move to Wasaga Beach. We really enjoyed working with both of you, as you were both very approachable, professional and were always available to assist with all of our needs and answer any questions. We also appreciated your expert advice on home staging. The use of your truck on moving day was above and beyond! Overall we had a smooth and stress-free move and will certainly recommend you to family and friends that may be listing their homes in the future. Thanks again Wasaga Life Team!
“Always there – just a phone call away …”
Nadene and Kristina two great girls… you couldn't ask for two better people to work for you. Always there - just a phone call away to answer your questions. I felt very comfortable working with them… like I knew them all my life. They are dedicated, hardworking, knowledgeable, very open and honest… it was a pleasure working with them and became great friends. I refer the girls all the time to my friends. Thanks Nadene and Kristina.
“… best-prepared broker I have ever worked with.”
I meet Nadene by chance. I was looking for a cottage in Wasaga Beach. After many months of checking the listings, the area and the different types of cottages, I picked her from many real estate people based on what I seen on the internet. I called her to ask a few questions and get some idea of what she had listed and what she might know about Wasaga.
When I started this I was thinking of using my broker from Toronto area, she quickly told me all the benefits of using a Broker in the Wasaga Area with knowledge of the area, so we set up a date to look at cottages. We looked at many from my list and many from her list, no luck the first time. After talking to her about different areas and the town, I was very impressed with her knowledge of Wasaga and Wasaga Real Estate.
We looked a few more times, then found a couple we liked. Once we knew the one we wanted it was time to go to work. I'm very hard to work for, I know what I want, I know how I want it done, I know what I want to pay. Well this is where I was most IMPRESSED, after talking to her about all this, I was very surprised to hear we would be on the same page for most things.
Now the real story - she did the paperwork up, at the price I wanted to use, she went to work on it, after about a week we had a deal.
I can't even say one thing I didn't like from our first meeting to day we got our place. She is perfect, she is exactly what I wanted in a Broker, even after the sale we remain friends.
In closing, she is the best-prepared broker I have ever worked with.
Thanks again Wasaga Life Team!
“… they got it SOLD.”
I found my way on your website and saw this - thought I would drop a line and tell others about my amazing experience with you ladies. I did not like real estate agents. I listed my home comfree. Lets just say I hired these ladies with confidence and they sold my house in very little time. They are professional. They marketed my house like crazy and with their use of technology and attracting the Toronto market, they got it SOLD.
Thanks ladies, many referrals coming your way.
“… out of this world.”
Your efforts in helping my family settle into a home were out of this world. You both have such warm hearts and were that breath of fresh air we needed during this entire process. Thank you for finding us our dream home. So far Alliston is the perfect fit for our family!
“Their prompt response to our questions was impressive.”
A thank you and congratulations to Nadene and Kristina on the sale of our Wasaga Beach home. They were persistent and innovative in marketing our home through what proved to be a difficult market at times. At all times they showed understanding and respect for our wishes and worked hard to look after our best interests. Their prompt response to our questions was impressive. Nadene and Kristina are certainly positive representatives of the real estate industry. Thank you again.
“… friendly and accommodating …”
We came to Wasaga Beach in search of a new home on April 28, 2012 and made an offer on May 1, 2012. Not knowing any of the local REALTORS®we decided to start the search by looking at the open houses around that date.
The first place that we stopped at was being hosted by Kristina. I believe that we were one of the first visitors at that location and discovered that the price range was higher than we were prepared to pay for a home and we let Kristina know that going in. She was very understanding and let us tour the home anyway to give us a flavour of that home. As we were leaving we asked her about other upcoming houses that were coming up and she mentioned a house on Woodland Drive that was going to have an open house the following day and we told Kristina that we would see her there that morning and that we were going to drive around town after that to look at properties that were of interest to us.
Long story short we went to the house and found that it had the potential to be our next home. Kristina was very helpful in answering our questions and got the answers expeditiously when she did not know. As we were leaving to look at other properties we asked if she would be interested to arrange viewings for homes that we found of interest during our drive by's that day. During the course of the day we phoned back and forth with Kristina adding and cancelling out places of interest.
The next day we were off with Kristina and toured the chosen listings. There was no pressure at any point in time attempting to steer us to one of Wasaga Life's listings, the places were viewed, questions asked and answered or answers gotten and we finished the day by agreeing that we would break off to gather our thoughts and then get back together to discuss our decision.
The end result was that we were prepared to make an offer on the Woodland Drive home and arranged a time to meet Kristina at their office to do just that. We met Nadene for the first time during the preparation of the offer and found her to be just as friendly and accommodating as Kristina. The offer was accepted and we are now Wasaga Beach residents.
We are very experienced house buyers and have to say that the experience of purchasing this home was one of our better ones thanks to the professionalism of the Wasaga Life Team during the search and afterwards. We would strongly suggest to anyone looking to buy or sell here to do it with Wasaga Life. Thanks Kristina and Nadene!
“… really know the Wasaga area.”
Its all about those signs! Noticing a cottage listed with Nadene we phoned and set up a viewing. She was wonderful and worked with us to find exactly what we wanted. Thank you for working with us long distance and making it easy. From recommending local trades, inspectors, and businesses they really know the Wasaga area. Any questions we had about our purchase were quickly handled in a professional manner. Nadene's negotiating skills smoothed the road and made our purchase a great experience. Thank you. We love our new view.
“… updated us every step of the way.”
We would like to thank you both for your very hard work in selling our home in Wasaga Beach.
We had the home listed with an alternate agent since February and by July there was no movement at all. We finally contacted Nadene and Kristina and listed our home with WASAGA LIFE. They worked very diligently and very hard to sell our home. It sold by first week of September. Nadene was wonderful. She always kept in contact and and updated us every step of the way. I never questioned what she did. I trusted her fully. She was always there for us. She continously held open houses and staged the home so that it showed very well.
I will always refer Wasagalife Team to everyone I know! These two ladies are fantastic and will always remain in my heart for their kindness and professionalism. THANK YOU!
“Their marketing skills and program were superb!”
Right from the start, we knew we had made the right choice. Both Nadine and Kristina presented themselves in a calm and knowledgeable manner. They listened, gave excellent advice and there was a comfort zone with them that we felt we were in good hands. Their marketing skills and program were superb!
So, thank you and you can rest assured that we will highly recommend your services to everyone we know.
“… a huge thank you …”
What can we say but "a huge thank you" for your patience, your time, effort and advice. The house is now a home and the renovations are nearly complete. We would recommend both Nadine and Kristina to anybody who are either looking to buy or sell. The professionalism and knowledge is awesome, Their knowledge of the area incredible. Thank you so much for your assistance in making Wasaga Beach home.
“Your passion and dedication shows …”
Its not common to meet a team of REALTORS® who work as hard as the two of you. Your passion and dedication shows in everything you both do. I had listed my home numerous times in the past and I can honestly say, every time my experience worsened. I was very hesitant to list my home on my own, but after being referred to Nadine and Kristina, I gave it one last shot. My home sold, they did an outstanding job and put a lot of effort into showcasing my property and marketing it to potential buyers. We all know the market in the local area of Wasaga Beach can take time and homes do not sell overnight. These ladies continously pushed and worked with tweaking my listing, flyers, ads, descriptions and more to stay relevant and fresh. You wont be dissappointed with these two, they compliment each other well and have a great future ahead of them. One of the nicest things about these two, they actually take your calls and provide you with updates. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, Thank you Ladies.
“… keep up the amazing work.”
I couldn't have asked for a better team. Nadene, Kristina… THANK YOU! I had interviewed several agents in the Barrie area and had been referred to Nadene and Kristina by a friend. I had thought using a local Barrie rep would be more beneficial the first time around, but it turned out it wasn't. Nadene and Kristina knew my area, and they knew Barrie. They even have an office in Barrie now - AMAZING LADIES! They took my listing and sold it fairly quickly. They even helped me find my new home, which I absolutely love. Ladies, keep up the amazing work. I will refer you to everyone- that's a promise.
“… an unmatchable team!”
It is with much pleasure I write this note…
Being involved with the Real Estate industry for many years, I had extensive dealings with "agents". I chose to sell my own properties rather than deal with these dishonest sales people. When I had to sell one of my properties in Wasaga Beach in the worst downturn since the depression (2008), I chose to interview quite a few agents which Nadene Milnes was one of. Much to my surprise, Nadene was not like any other agent I had the displeasure of meeting. Not only was Nadene refreshing with her positive nature, she was very enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable. Her marketing initiatives were, bar none, the best I had seen in the industry. She is current with social media sales and markets your home in the larger cities because she has done her research on home buyer trends.
One of my most valued things about Nadene was that she makes you feel like you are her only client! It didn't matter what time of day you contacted her, she always responded immediately. Nadene sold our house quickly and got us 98% of our asking price which was $50,000.00 more than any other agent told us we could get!
I have referred Nadene to many of my friends and they have all been just as overwhelmed as I was at her work ethic and her attention to their every need. Here I thought I was special getting all her attention, but no. She treats all her clients the same. I have never met anyone who puts in more effort than Nadene. She goes well above and beyond the call of duty. You can definitely tell that this agent is not like the rest. Her focus is solely on you and your needs, not on the all mighty dollar! She proves this again and again as she delivers staging furniture to your house at no cost if you need it. She cuts her commissions to make a deal happen if you really want that house. She has arranged garage sales and help with moving and the list goes on and on!
I recently purchased another home and hired Nadene. I had a meeting scheduled with Nadene at the new home and much to my surprise, Nadene had to cancel due to an unexpected circumstance (this never happens). She went out of her way to make sure I was still looked after and had her partner, Kristina meet me. Now, given my experience with agents, I was not looking forward to dealing with anyone else. When I arrived at the house, there stood Kristina with the biggest smile. I tried not to like her, but it was futile. 🙂 Much like Nadene, Kristina was full of positive energy and extremely knowledgeable. She couldn't do enough for me. If I had a question that she was unsure of the answer, she didn't try to fake it (like most agents). She owned it and did everything in her power to find the answer. I admire that the most in these two incredible women. They will never try and fluff their way through. If they don't know something, they tell you they don't know and then they do their research and get you the truth to the best of their abilities.
Congratulations on coming together and making an unmatchable team!
DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND CALL NADENE & KRISTINA IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO BUY OR SELL. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME SEARCHING FOR COMPARABLES… THERE IS NOTHING OUT THERE THAT WILL EVEN COME CLOSE!
“… made us feel like we were their only client.”
Our home had been listed for over a year and lots of action but no results. Our major disappointment was poor feedback or perceived effort or concern from our listing agents. As it's a buyer's market at this time in Wasaga Beach it is easy to become discouraged and frustrated.
Nadene and Kristina changed all that. Even our property description took on a new digital look with great visual photos of our home. All of a sudden constant feedback and a feeling of personal attention made us feel like we were their only client. Our home is now sold and we're still being supported and reminded what a great team approach can do.
“… reliable, trustworthy REALTORS®”
These women make things happen and also make a great team… We were fully satisfied with their services as they went above and beyond what many other REALTOR®s would do. We will continue to use them for all our real estate needs in the future and recommend them to anyone needing reliable, trustworthy REALTOR®s. Thanks again!
“… referred them to 4 people…”
Words cannot express my gratitude towards these two young ladies. They stuck with me through various ups and downs in my career and life within the past 2 years, when I was on and off the market with my listing. Anything that came my way seemed to affect decisions I made with the sale of my home and I was sure these ladies would have jumped ship thinking they would never get anywhere with my family and I.
Weeks, months went by and after continuous follow up and contact, I finally listed and sold with happiness to move on to bigger and better things. I was not another transaction, I was a friend, a client whom they wanted to help and were there for through matters that didn't even involve the shake of hands and a sold sign on my house. They are both beautiful individuals and hold true to their word when representing you. I will always and forever thank them for their patience, understanding and for listening when I needed it the most. Since I have sold, I have not only purchased with them, I have also referred them to 4 people whom have been in contact with them to buy/sell.
Hard work pays off ladies, great job! You will always be my # 1 Team of Choice for Real Estate. HUGS
“… friendly, helpful, hard working and efficient.”
We are very pleased with our decision to work with Nadene and Kristina during the purchase of our current home. We are very satisfied with the professional service provided by them. Nadene and Kristina are very friendly, helpful, hard working and efficient. Their good negotiation skills saved us money and saved the deal which was almost broken at one time. Thank you very much for your great job, Nadene & Kristina!
I thought putting my house on the market would be simple. I'm on my own so the house is always quite tidy. I was ready to put the sign up and thought it would be a piece of cake.
From the time I called in these two Real Estate Agents, to the time I SOLD I was floored. I could not believe the attention to detail, and the effort put into ensuring my home was hitting the public market with a bang. From the set up, to pictures, to presentation. I am overly thrilled to have had my first experience selling, be outstanding. I hear of stories often and a lot are very negative with their Real Estate People.
However, Nadine and Kristina put a whole different element into Selling. It's fantastic. On my purchase, they coached me through everything. I cannot stress enough how both these two work even on the Buying part of it. Its suprising that a team can work so well together. Kristina was always helpful every email I sent and never got upset at my 1am emails. *Sorry Again*. They negotiated my offer on both ends with ease and got me exactly what I was hoping for and a bit more. Good luck with business and thanks again for your help. I give you 10 stars. Highly recommend this team to anyone buying or selling a home.
“… always had our best interest in mind …”
Being first time home buyers, my boyfriend and I were a bit apprehensive and nervous at first, not knowing what to expect or how the entire home buying process would work. Matt helped us feel at ease immediately. He walked us through every step of the way, from setting up a meeting to answer any questions we had, to explaining the entire process and different paper work we would see. Matt was always a phone call, email, or text message away if we had any questions, and we had tons of them! He was very accommodating with meeting times, often working around our work schedule, meeting us late in the evening or early in the mornings.
Although it was at some times very stressful, Matt did his best at accommodating all of our needs and always had our best interest in mind. Matt was a pleasure to work with, and we will most certainly be recommending him to anyone with REALTOR® needs. Thank you for everything!
“An 11 out of 10 …”
Kathy and I want to thank you for a great job selling our house. You made us price it higher than we thought we should and then sold it for over asking. I am sure all the photos and marketing you did made it happen. If you ever need a reference we would rate you an 11 out of 10.
“Kudos SignatureSold Team!”
I wanted to take a moment to give a sincere and heart felt thank you to the "SignatureSold Team" and in particular to Kristina. From the first time we contacted you regarding a listing my wife and I noticed while out for a drive in Wasaga Beach, you have been nothing less than awesome and more than accommodating. From that first listing to finally finding the home we have always been looking for you made it an enjoyable experience. Kristina was so eager to help us as if she had no one else to look after other than us, it felt like she was our own personal agent. We would call her or email her a list of homes on a Thursday or Friday that we wanted to see on Saturday (sometimes as many as 10 homes) she would always make it happen. Being new to Wasaga Beach she directed us to areas she felt we would be the most comfortable in and we were not dissappointed.
Kristina is very knowledgeable and her easy, outgoing personality made house hunting enjoyable. When we finally found our home it was almost like the end of a relationship, as we were not going to be calling every weekend with a list of homes we wanted to see. If you are ever in the market for a new home or to list your existing home I could not imagine anyone looking further than the Signature Sold Team.
Thank you again for everything and always being there for us.
“It’s been such a pleasure dealing with you.”
We had been paying close attention to listings in Wasaga, who the listing agents were and how quickly the agent's listing would sell. From this, we realized that you girls must be doing something right, as we would see 'SOLD' signs quite often. We then decided to contact your office when we decided to list our home. Kristina - you responded so quickly to our request for an evaluation appointment, and then followed through that same day with listing the property. Nadene, you answered all my questions and concerns so quickly. We want to thank you both for an excellent job in completing the sale within such a short period of time, considering the time of year. It's been such a pleasure dealing with you.
“No challenge too great …”
Thank you to team Nadene, Kristina and Matt!! We had a challenge for you and you rose go the occasion! We are grateful for your professional solid advice and for remaining positive throughout this process. A special Thank You to Matt… who always took the time to answer all of my questions and who walked us through this step-by-step. A terrific team all around!!! We will be forever grateful.
To: Nadene Milnes and the Awesome Royal Lepage Locations North Team! Awesome JOB!!
I have a really great story to tell you about my experience. At the beginning of this year my husband and I decided that we wanted to sell our property in Wasaga Beach. Love Wasaga, but since we moved to the country as our permanent home, we found we were not using the weekend property as much. I decided I would contact one of the most popular agents in the area... this was based on all the signs I had seen in the area, I really did not know anyone around. Well…. That was the worst mistake I could ever have made. This guy was so terrible with his service it was unreal… he was obviously banking on his popular name to sell my home, don’t think he felt he needed to do any actual work. Needless to say, he did a terrible job… pictures were just terrible, some he found from 10 years ago and actually posted them, the listing had wrong information the entire time it was up even after I pointed it out several times to be corrected, they just did not care… he was too busy traveling and letting his office just deal with stuff. Lesson learned: NEVER go with the guy with the largest ego that thinks his name alone will sell! After 6 months of no performance and almost no feedback or real communication from this “apparently” top agent in Wasaga… I cancelled my listing with him and took my home off the market!! What a colossal waste of time!!
I found Nadene shortly after online, I was scared to make the wrong choice again. After I met her I could tell this was totally different… she was spending her entire time with me during our meeting explaining what she would do for me… how she would use her marketing background to ensure my property had the best visibility and she took the time to explain her process of giving me feedback…good or bad after each showing to ensure we could address any negative feedback quickly. The pictures she had done were amazing and truly showed the awesome beauty within my home. You know what… she did everything as promised!!! She was an absolute breath of fresh air, very professional and totally efficient right to the final sale of my home that only took 4 weeks total!!!
Thanks Nadene and Team!!
“… can make it happen.”
We have dealt with Elise for the past several years. She has represented us on both sides of purchases and sales. I can assure anyone who is in the real estate market and is looking for a professional agent to locate property or market property for sale; Elise can make it happen.
