Selling our Willowdale home of 32 years was a big decision. One meeting with Bob and we knew we had found the right agent. Clearly, this was a professional with an extraordinary depth of expertise. His warmth and understanding, unflagging good humour, remarkable depth of knowledge and insight afforded us much peace of mind throughout the entire process of marketing to final negotiations with a buyer. With his quiet wisdom and consistently prudent advice, Bob made it possible for us to move on happily. Bob is an extraordinary realtor. We are well and truly SOLD.

I couldn’t have been any more pleased with Derek. I have moved out of the province and he has looked after me and my property over the last two years as a rental and a great sale all this while I was in Alberta. I would highly recommend him.

Derek Britton helped my partner and I find our first home! He was professional, patient, and provided insightful information that helped us make the right decision for our future. He wasn't afraid to tell us that a home wasn't right for us. He listened and always came back with better offers. He always made himself available to us, at any time of day. He was approachable and confident in his work. He wanted the best for us and worked hard to ensure we got the best deal for our home. I would highly encourage anyone looking for a new home to contact Derek Britton at Remax to help you!
I would like to thank you, Bob, for your assistance in educating and guiding me through the sale of my home after 63 years of residence, and as well, your help and resourcefulness with my subsequent relocation. Your friendly, pleasant personality and dedication to your client was much appreciated. I would highly recommend you to friends and family.
We went through the sale of our home at a very stressful time and were so lucky to have Bob's support and guidance through the whole process. His knowledge of the business and the neighbourhood were extremely valuable, helping us to make important decisions with very little stress. We ended up selling our home over asking and have never looked back since. Thank you again Bob for your help.

We will keep it short and sweet:
" Finding that "perfect home" is never an easy task, unless Bob is on your side! Our search spanned over a year and, throughout this time, Bob provided not only tremendous assistance, but friendly advice as well. Our purchase was effortless as Bob stepped us through the process,providing courteous,professional, and honest support. Months after the closing date, this service continued when Bob stepped in to help resolve an issue with our lawyer. We consider Bob our realtor and our friend.

I could not recommend Derek more highly. He is definitely very knowledgeable and capable as a Realtor. His background in home contracting means that he brings a depth of knowledge when evaluating houses that few Realtors could match. He sees the little things, and he sees the big things.
I toured many houses with Derek, and was consistently impressed by his knowledge and thoroughness. He is patient, and helpful, and I never once felt rushed.
Naturally, when I tell people that I've sold my home, one of the first questions is "did You get a good price?" My answer is always the same: " I got a great price." And then I go on and tell them that I had an excellent real estate agent. There are many reasons why I consider you "excellent". Here are some of them:
You listen. I mean you really,really listen.
You know what you are talking about.
You put all the options on the table and then give the pros and cons of each so that I can make the best decision for myself.
You know the area well.
You're reliable and honest.
You demonstrate in many ways that you care about yur clients needs.
You're trustworthy and personable.
These are some of the reasons that I'll be picking up the phone to call you when I'm ready to buy again!
We recently sold our Willowdale home that had been in the family for over 65-years. Bob worked with us for a few years to help select the appropriate time to sell the property. When the time came to sell, we relied on Bob's expertise concerning the logistics of the transaction. On the date of the sale, Bob worked late into the night with us to ensure that we obtained a satisfactory arrangement. We are truly satisfied with Bob's efforts.

Since retiring, I have so far referred three former clients to you. In speaking with them, I have heard from all three of them what a great job you did for all of them. Although this is nothing less than I expected of you when I entrust my former clients, friends or family to you, I still wanted to thank you for following through and taking care of them with such commitment. All reported to me about their experience with you.
All remarked how impressed they were with your Exceptional Experience, Professionalism and your honesty in dealing with them.It's great for me to be able to refer you to my friends, family, neighbours and former clients with such confidence. Thanks Again. Your success is well deserved.
Derek Britton is a realtor who combines trustworthiness with invaluable knowledge of the industry. Wise beyond his years his background in contracting and finance allows him to competently guide his clients' real estate decisions. In addition to his knowledge base, Derek is reliable and relatable, making you feel comfortable and secure throughout the entire process. I have collaborated with Derek and am better for it. I highly recommend his professional services as your realtor.
Just a few words to express our thanks and appreciation for all your hard work and compassion in the sale of our family home.
You took the time to visit my father and explain the real estate transaction at his nursing home. This is above and beyond any agent we have dealt with previously.
We will highly recommend you to anyone looking to sell their family home.
You made a very difficult transition as easy as possible with great communication
Thank you again Bob,
I was concerned that selling my parents home would be a stressful ordeal. With Bob's help, the whole process was seamless from beginning to end. And the end result was very favourable for my parents with their house selling for well over asking. Thank you Bob for your personal and professional support.
I hope this letter comes under the "better than never" category. Bob, Ann and I would like to express our heartfelt thanks to you for your outstanding sales effort on our behalf at 20 Grantbrook Street. A week ago, I was sitting in my dentist's chair, listening to her tale of woe about the house she had been trying to sell. Her house, a good one in a good North York neighbourhood, went on sale in February at approximately the same time ours went up for sale. My dentist's house just sold about three weeks ago, for less than the asking price. What a contrast to our experience, Bob. Thanks to your professionalism, outstanding sense of the market and most of all, to your ability to work closely in a team relationship with us, the whole sales process was a pleasure. Our house was the second one you have sold for us in eighteen months at considerably above the asking price, in less than two weeks time from beginning to completion of negotiations. The entire process in both cases was a pleasure to participate in. It goes without saying, Bob, that Ann and I very strongly recommend you and your team to our friends and colleaques, and will continue to do so. Bob, Ann and I would like to wish you and your family a safe and happy summer.

When it came time to sell my mothers house of 65 years, one of her neighbours recommended Bob to us. It was a tough decision to sell, but Bob's friendly down to earth personality helped us get through the process smoothly. It was great to deal with an agent who knew the area well and he provided a clear explanation of the paperwork and steps involved. Bob was prompt at returning phone calls and always kept us in the loop on what was happening. The house sold quickly and we would like to thank him for all the work he did to make it a positive experience.
