"Dear Mr. Bosley,
I wish to take this opportunity today to commend one of your agents, Donna D’amico for her utmost professionalism during the recent sale of our home on 9 Highland Drive, Grimsby, Ontario, and purchase of our new home in the downtown core.
My husband and I have spent the bulk of our lives in Maritimes. I cannot overstate how different the real estate market is between central and eastern Canada; so the process of buying and selling a home can be overwhelming to us. I interviewed many agents from several companies; some key qualities I looked for in our agent were respect, knowledge, and a strong work ethic; and I needed to hire someone we could trust completely. Donna exceeded each and every one of these virtues.
She was professional from beginning to end. There have been some homes in our neighbourhood that have been sitting on the market for a very long time. This concerned us greatly; we did not want to become a stale house on the market. Donna priced our house right; the list price was not only good for us, but fair for the client too. She marketed to the right prospects; and arranged many showings for a house in this price range. There was an illness in our family shortly after we listed, and we needed to stop showings abruptly and indefinitely. Donna completely respected this – no questions asked. We always felt she had our backs, no matter what.
Once ready to do showings again, Donna picked up where we left off. We had some early feedback that clients did not like our basement, and I considered hiring a staging company to assist with this. Donna said to save our money, and that she would happily come over and work with what we had. She arrived one afternoon, rolled up her sleeves and helped us rearrange furniture, lighting, and accessories in a way that would appeal to a buyer. Well it worked, the new feedback was excellent, and the interest in our house increased greatly. She was able to sell our home shortly after, with ideal conditions at 97% of the asking price! ~smile~ What should have been a stressful time, was actually a lot of fun. We really enjoyed our working relationship with Donna – she was always the calm in the storm, and we had many laughs on the side.
Once our house was sold, we advised Donna that we wanted to downsize to a smaller house downtown as our son is off to university in the fall – we wanted very specific neighbourhoods where there is no inventory on the market. She went to all of our desired streets, knocked on doors and sought out prospects. Many homes in these areas are selling for above asking price, have wait lists, and are engaged in bidding wars. We found a house in one of our desired streets and Donna was able to negotiate a deal that was not only $10,000 under asking, she was able to move the closing date to one month earlier that met our needs best. We are sooooo happy!!!!!!!
Now my husband and I are so excited about the future and renovating our little dream house with walkability to everything. Donna continues to be an excellent resource for any questions we have on the new property, sourcing out local contractors, re-sale considerations, etc. I realize this is way above and beyond – but we really trust her advice. We are truly having the time of our lives – and have Donna D’amico to thank for making this such a smooth transition. It has been a true pleasure working with Bosley Real Estate and especially Donna. Kudos to you Mr. Bosley for hiring rockstars! Can you please give her a pat on the back for us? Thank you so much."The Robichaud Family

"It sure was a pleasure working with you Donna. I felt that you understood me at all levels. You are a credit to your profession and Bosley is lucky to have you. Cannot wait for my neighbours to see the 'SOLD' sign. I am sure you will be getting other clients from Beamer Avenue! Thank you so much again."
