The Johnston Team” - Testimonials Video



Testimonial from Pat & Rob McGowan - August 12, 2013

Our relationship with The Johnston Team spans several years, as we (on again, off again) struggled with the decision of downsizing and selling our home of over 30 years.

The Johnston’s were patient and supportive throughout the process; always available; never pressing; and always professional in their advice related to the Barrie market.

When the decision was finally made, the transaction was handled with their hallmark grace and professionalism.

Thank you Karen, Robert and Matt.

Pat & Rob McGowan


Testimonial from Maureen & Gerry

Gerry and I would like to thank The Johnston Team again for all their efforts in selling our home, everyone did a wonderful job and it was wonderful working with this professional team.  The Feature Sheet was awesome!  I think the feature sheet sold our home!  When you look at the pictures and read the description you will fall in love with this home.  

By the way, the video tour was wonderful and Matthew and the film crew did a great job.  The tools real estate agents have now to support their business and make their job a little easier are fantastic.  What a difference 20 or so years can make!

You can be sure we will spread the word and we have already done so......”if you want results call the Professionals...... call The Johnston Team for your Real Estate needs”.


Testimonial from Michael Kidman

Thank you for your time and effort in helping me find my new home. It was a pleasure working with the "Johnston" team. Matt was very effecient in returning calls and or text messages. I appreciate the effort and time he took to show me homes even on fathers day. This shows the kind of dedication the "Johnston" team has to their clients.


Testimonial from Greg and Kim Martin

To the Johnston Family and team, Greg and I want to thank you all for the incredible job you did in selling our house professionally and quickly. Your years of experience and advice helped us to feel at ease through the whole selling process. We knew that we wanted the Johnston team to sell our house again after the wonderful job you did selling our first home.

We really appreciate everything you have done for us and you all genuinely care. It was a smooth, quick transaction. We recommend to everyone to the Johnston Team!

Thanks so much!


Testimonial from John and Mel

As far as your service, we could not have asked for more. The house was advertised professionally and shown many times and at the time we felt we extracted as much as we could get out of it dollarwise. Thanks!


Testimonial from Joe and Ramona

I know you didn't ask me to write you this letter but I wanted to because I wanted to thank-you for selling our house, and in nine days too! We didn't even have the time to get a photographer in here and we are more than thrilled in a softening real estate market to be on our way. You have helped us out of a difficult situation and we are so absolutely thrilled with the offer that you negotiated on our behalf.

Some people might be upset about paying such a high commission and for work that was only done in matter of a week. However, last Spring, we listed with a different agent and it was a waste of time (4 months of it) with over thirty exhausting showings and nothing but a few low ball offers.

With you, I felt taken care of, even cared for. We thought you were professional, easy to talk to, quick and efficient and had our best interests at heart the entire way through. You even wanted to keep negotiating when we were happy with what you brought us!

If anyone is wondering whether they should list with you, all I can say is that I wish we would have listed with you in the first place. It was well worth it! Thank-you for selling our house. Thank-you for caring.


Testimonial from Peter Lejbjuk

I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful job you did selling our house at 40 Copeman. We moved into the Newmarket home on Wednesday, finally concluding the moving process we started with back in March when you both came to visit us.

Your guidance, advise, and friendship were very much appreciated during the throughout process. We sold in less time and for more money that we had anticipated - you definitely exceeded our expectations in everyway. Your recommendation of Bob Luery was also 'spot-on'. He was very comforting to work with and did a great job finding us a home we are very pleased with.

Laura and I wish you and the entire Johnston team all the best in the future. We will be sure to strongly recommend you to anyone we encounter selling or buying in the Barrie area.


Testimonial from Gilbert and Gloria Godfrey

To the Johnston Family with special thoughts for Matt & Robert: Words can not express our thoughts and appreciation for what you have done to help us achieve finding and making it possible for us to have the home we dreamed of.

Two simple words seem so inadequate; but, we express them from our heart. THANK YOU!


Testimonial from Richard and Karen

Good Afternoon Robert, Karen, Matt and the entire Johnston Team:

Just a quick note to thank you so very much for the gift basket. We were over the moon and your generosity just confirms why we continually come to you whenever we need help in moving. It is the way that you treat us and your other customers like family that makes you so well liked.


Testimonial from Albert and Maureen Vandermey

Our experience was very positive and we would not hesitate to recommend your services. Thank you!


Testimonial from Leigh Gate

I want to drop you a quick note to say thank you very much! Not only did the Johnston Team once again work very hard to sell my house and help me find my new home, you offered advice, guidance and are great to work with!

Please pass my appreciation on to the whole team at the office. Thank you again, and I will always recommend you to anyone I know. All the best!


Testimonial from Leigh Gate

Dear Bob, Karen and Matthew,

We just wanted to take the time (now that we have found a little after the move) to say thanks so much. We are loving our new home, (I do miss Knicely at times but not so much now!) and the space is exactly what we had hoped it would be for our family. Loon is a perfect fit for us and thanks so much for doing all you did to ensure a smooth transaction for us. Matthew a big thanks to you for keeping an eye on it and for getting in touch with us again when the price became more manageable! I continuously tell people what a great job your team has done for us during both our purchases and the selling of the first. I highly recommend the Johnston Team.


Testimonial from Tyler Sage

When our family decided to move to Barrie, and we had selected the style, price and location of our next home, we realized the "Johnston Team" had 8 of 11 listings for the homes we wanted to view which suggested to us they must be one of the best. Upon our first introduction, the Johnstons made us feel very comfortable by educating us on the local housing market, shopping/entertainment/tourist amenities, and the future growth plans of Barrie which would impact the purchase and future sale of the home we chose. Through the entire transaction from the introduction, viewing, negotiating, purchase and closing, the Johnstons made us feel they always had our best interest in mind. That is why we have completed 4 transactions in less than 5 years with the "Johnston Team" and would highly recommend them to any one looking to buy or sell their first or next home.

I have enjoyed the time i've spent with you and have appreciated your knowledge, honesty and respect. I look forward to working with you all again the next time I move. I plan to continue praising your work and friendliness to my friends. Thanks again!


Testimonial from Scott Joyce

Hi Robert, Matt and Karen,

Thanks again for getting my rental property at 223 Cook Street sold last February. I am glad I did not hold out for a higher price and wait for the spring market.


Testimonial from The Laidlaw's

We would wish to take this opportunity to thank you both very much for the quick sale of our home! We would also like to express our gratitude for your extreme professionalism, and for your ability to make us feel comfortable during a time which can generally be quite stressful. Once again thank you for a job well done! We would not hesitate to recommend your top-notch services to those who are thinking of selling their home.


Testimonial from Peter, Rossana, Robert & Lucas

Thanks again for all your help, hard work & dedication with regard to the sale of our home. It was a pleasure dealing with you both and we will keep you in mind in the future if we ever decide to sell again. Your thoughtfulness is very much appreciated & thanks again for a job well done and your professionalism.


Testimonial from Patricia & Paul Babineau

What else could we say, but hands down you're the best! You're very professional people and we are so glad we got to know you! Thanks for everything!


Testimonial from Annie, Mark, Emily & Brandon

Thank you for all your hard work in getting us in our dream home. If and when we have to do this again, you will be the "team" that we contact. Thank you for all your patience.


Testimonial from Bev Browne

Just a note to say "thank you' so very much for all the help you were to me in selling my little cottage. I remember so well sitting down with you both and signing the listing paper which started me on the journey after 42 years on the lake. You guided me every step of the way and made this life-altering decision both interesting and easy and there is no question that you were certainly the right people, at the right time, for me. Thanks to you, to Matthew and the whole team who were so helpful and answered all my questions so readily - they were just so nice to talk to.
