Hi Ted and Vicki

We wanted to thank you, it has been a pleasure working with you and look forward to our next sale!!

cheers

Keep up the great work Jackalin! Chris & Lisa Sleeman

Thanks so much for helping us find our spot of paradise! You were quick off the mark to let us know that the property was available, we are both sure, that because of this we were able to secure the land. You always seem available, not many realtors can boast that fact.

Thanks tons Jackalin. Matt & Helen MacAndrew

Jackalin is THE Best! We moved here from out of the area so alot of our trips had to be weekends (even a holiday in there) and there was always someone there to help you. Ted & Vicki would help out as well. And using e-mail was a great added bonus. We took so long in selling our home and finally buying something, I would not have blamed her if she had given up on us!! But so glad she didn’t…we are FINALLY home! (still loving it after 1 year and a bit)

Thanks Jackalin! Warren and Karen Dinsmore

Whatever we needed, whenever we needed it, Jackalin O’Brien made it happen.

Trying to make an offer, counter offers, finalizing the deal and managing the timing of a follow up visit and the cottage inspection from hundreds of kilimetres away had the potential of being very stressful. Jackalin acted as the facilitator for all of it, kept us informed constantly and took the worry out of it.

Even after we had completed the closing, Jackalin was still looking after us and arranged for removal of snow from the roof this winter on our behalf. Saying she went the extra mile would be an understatement. We realized a dream and Jackalin was a huge help to us!

Thanks again Catherine & Drew Elliott.

Just wanted to say thank you to Jackalin O’Brien. Jackalin,Ted and Vicki were always available to us and answered our questions quickly and courteously. We were from out of town and had to see as many properties as we could on weekends or days off. From the offer to the closing they made everything run smoothly. We love it here.
