"I had a really good experience with the Rob Golfi team. I had already bought a house & needed to sell my townhouse. Rob Golfi came with Rose Martinho. They knew exactly how to price my townhouse & they helped me to stage & paint the house right. In the first 24 hours up on MLS we had 6 showings & 4 offers. Rose Martinho did an awesome job connecting with the other agents & helping me to figure out the best offer. She was also a great support when I felt stressed. Thank you so much Rob Golfi team. You got the job done smoothly."
"Natalie Hargreaves just sold my mother 's house. This house had been listed previously with another agent during a better hotter real estate market and the house sat for 4 months with very few showings. Not knowing what to do next, I reached out to Rob Golfi and his team. Rob set my mother up with Natalie Hargreaves and within 4 weeks Natalie had showings and interest in the property, enough that the house went into competition. We couldn't have been happier with both the service, the professionalism of Natalie Hargreaves and the whole Golfi Team."
"Great experience with the Golfi team. After reading their online reviews, we went with Lou and within 24hrs of listing our house we had multiple offers. We accepted one of them, left for vacation the next morning and our house was sold firm for over asking price while we were away! Perfect!"
"Hi, Rose Martinho worked with me to sell my house. From the beginning till the end she was very confident and helped me out with all the resources that I needed to prepare my house for sale. I commend her efforts and would highly recommend her services."
"We have been investigating moving to the Grimsby/Niagara area and was referred to Krista Toussaint and have found her amazing to work with.. Her love of helping us find the perfect place and her wonderful personality is really outstanding! We have and continue to recommend anyone looking to buy or sell their property to talk to Krista."
