Testimonials

Hiring the Goodale Miller Team will give you a competitive edge over other listings in your neighbourhood. We appreciated the team approach to evaluating our home’s value, preparing our home for sale, and ultimately marketing it effectively to sell in just 9 days. The entire team, including the appointment desk, worked hard to guide us through the selling process, making the journey as stress-free as possible. If you are serious about selling your home, hire the Goodale Miller Team and put their resources to work for you. ~ Luan and Steve Attridge

We are so appreciative that Bill was able to share his exceptional knowledge and expertise with us throughout the home buying process. Always the professional, he consistently demonstrated a high level of integrity, and his patience and accessibility were invaluable during this venture. His insight and intimate knowledge of the individual neighbourhoods made it possible for us to ultimately find our dream home. ~ Lisa and Cesar Mendez

At the beginning of our decision to list our house we had three of the better-known real estate firms come to our house to discuss what they each would do to sell our home. We went with Bill Goodale and his team from Century 21 because we were impressed with their presentation. Their detailed Comparative Market Analysis which compared our house to others in the area and their friendly, personable, confident team approach made our decision to select them as our real estate agents very easy. Once that decision was made, the Goodale team went into high gear. We sat down to discuss all the stages of the selling process. We used their stager to advise us on how our house would best present to the public and received excellent advice which we followed to our advantage. The photographer and videographer then came in and captured our home wonderfully. The brochure and video depicting our house was exceptional. The “for sale” sign was put in on a Monday and we sold on Wednesday. Wow! Three days and at more than we listed. Bill and his team did a wonderful job handling the various agents and their competing bids. We could not have been happier with the final outcome. Bill and his team took a potentially stressful process and took us through all the stages, calmly and confidently. We cannot say enough about Bill and his team approach, other than try it! We don’t think you’ll be disappointed. ~ Arden and Gary Menard

Both Ellis and I have enjoyed the processes through this purchase with your help. We found that you have been very patient and trustworthy. None of our friends thought that it would be  a good idea to share the same agent with the seller, but we found that Bill was such a great person who we could trust and did not feel pressure at all. When Bill sent us the first draft, one of our friends referred his friend, also a real estate agent, to be our agent. He said he would refund his commission as a buyer’s agent to us. However, we had started the process with Bill and did not feel it was right to switch the agent although nothing was signed at that time. Until now, we are 100% satisfied with Bill's professionalism. Thank you! We would once again like to thank you for your help. ~ Richie and Ellis

In Nov. 2011 we engaged Bill Goodale of the Century 21 Goodale Miller team to sell our home. After interviewing a variety of potential realtors, we decided to go with the Goodale Miller Team based on Bill’s professionalism, understanding of the local market dynamics, and realistic approach to marketing our home.  Rather than attempting to upsell the value of our home to get the listing, or focusing on downsizing our expectation to enter the market with a low ball price, Bill provided us with a pragmatic assessment of the market potential for our home. Early in the process we knew we had made the right decision, as the Goodale Miller Team engaged to provide us with high quality marketing program to showcase our home. Their web presence and their creative presentation of our home successfully drove significant activity, resulting in over 70 showings of our home over a fairly short period of time. However, what impressed us the most was the fact that Bill personally stayed completely engaged in the sale of our home and ultimately brought us one of his own clients as our home purchaser. Not satisfied to be either a listing agent or a selling agent, Bill demonstrated the breadth of his expertise, providing us with outstanding service and value on both sides of the transaction. My wife and I would recommend Bill Goodale and the Goodale Miller team to anyone looking for a real estate agent and brokerage team that met and exceed on the expectations they set and who deliverd the results. We would not hesitate to use them again in the future. ~ Robert Logan, 2187 North Ridge

A quick note from Sandi and myself to thank you for your help and assistance is selling our home at 466 Falgarwood. This is the fourth real estate transaction we have participated in over the years, and once again you and your team did a fantastic job. Your opinion for current market conditions, recommendations to prepare our home for sale, listing price, and negotiations with the offer were dead on, and appreciated from our end. Our home hit the MLS listings Tuesday afternoon, three showings that evening, and six the following day, with an offer received and accepted on Wednesday evening. These events are a testament to your understanding of the real estate business, and this expertise was truly appreciated by Sandi and myself. We wish you continued success in your future endeavors. ~ Best regards, Bob and Sandi

致读者:

您好!购置房产对每一个家庭而言都是一个重要决定,在作出这个重要决定的同时,一个有经验、了解当地房产、有责任心、很诚信的购房经纪一定会让您事半功倍。在此,根据在Oakville的购房经历,我诚意向您推荐Bill Goodale作为您的购房经纪。

认识Bill缘于我们一家决定从大西洋边搬到Oakville,在准备购房时朋友为我们介绍了他。异地购房是困难的,我们对这个城市的房产市场几乎一无所知,且因并不住在安省,实地看房成了最大的难题,大多数情况下Bill与我们通过电子邮件和电话联系,他给我们发来房产的信息让我们在网上初步挑选,在我们选好日期前往时为我们排好看房日程,仔细为我们介绍市场情况,耐心解释我们所提出的各种问题,并且给我们提出中肯的建议。经过了四个多月,我们终于签到了心仪的房子。在下offer时,Bill不时地提醒我们在offer中加上一些被我们忽略或者因为缺乏经验而根本没有意识到的细节要求,以防止我们自身的利益得不到保障。此外,由于我们居住地不在安省,不便实地验房,他毫不犹豫地代劳了,而且当我们收到验房师给出的报告后,他通过电话细致地向我们解释验房报告中的一切细节,并给出要求房主的整改建议。然后当offer终于确定时,他全力配合律师和银行为身处异地的我们提供了很多方便。

在我们购房的这四个月中,Bill和我们一同经历了许多事,让我们慢慢认识并最终真正信任了他。其中不得不提的是那个抢offer的经历:在竞价过程中Bill对我们说:“你们双方现在已经进入非理性竞价,我觉得你们的出价已经高出它的市场价值,除非你们觉得非它不可,要不就应该收手了,否则,将来如果你们想卖的时候会亏本的!”我们听从了他的建议,这个房子最终被对方买了。事后,我问他:“如果我买到这个房子,你就可以拿到佣金,为什么要阻止我们?”他的回答是:“我可以由着你们去出价买它,但是这会令我失去让我们成为朋友的机会!”

我们很庆幸认识了Bill并由他作为我们的房产经纪,从他所为我们所做的点点滴滴都显示出他是一个值得让人信赖的经纪......或者说朋友!相信他也不会令您失望。衷心祝愿您早日购得心仪的房产!~ Grace

Sue and I are pleased to provide you a very positive letter of reference. We find you to be conscientious and thoughtful. Always listening carefully to understand our objectives and concerns. Your firm's advice on how to prepare our home for showings was insightful and beneficial. The calibre of the marketing materials, brochure and video are top-notch and portray our home well beyond our expectations. Our discussions about strategy and your execution of same enabled us to accept the winning offer with confidence and at a price very acceptable to us. We would not hesitate to recommend you to friends and family. Well done, Bill! ~ Rusty Baillie

We are writing this reference letter as a testament to Bill Goodale and the Goodale Miller Team. After thoroughly investigating all top performing real estate firms in Oakville and specifically the Glen Abbey market, we chose Bill to represent us based on his knowledge of our neighbourhood, years of experience, professionalism and proven results. Prior to listing, Bill provided us with a thorough and well-supported market analysis along with a detailed marketing plan which included advertising to the GTA, Canadian and international markets. A complimentary staging consultation was provided which gave us the opportunity to have our home looking its very best. Yes, it was a lot of work to get the house ready, but we are certain it was worth the effort. There are only a small percentage of real estate agents who dedicate themselves to their profession 100% of the time. Bill is one of them. He provided excellent customer service along with the most professional marketing available today, including an impressive brochure, on-line video, pictures and floor plan. Bill gets results, he delivers. We recommend Bill Goodale without reservation to anyone selling or buying a house in Oakville, particularly Glen Abbey. ~ Robert and Susan Bruce
