CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

"Allison helped us find the perfect property for our needs. We found her to be very knowledgeable about the buying and selling process and really helped us narrow down what we were looking for. Allison was professional and timely in all her communication with us. We also appreciated her critical eye when visiting properties to help us identify potential issues or concerns."  - Michael Grieve & Jennifer Ley, Newmarket (Sale & Purchase)


"As a first time home seller, I was overwhelmed with the thought of wading into such an abyss.  I was grateful Allison was there to gently guide me through all the nuances of negotiation, and around any pitfalls related to buyer relationships.  In the end, I am confident I received the absolute best deal possible thanks to her experience and insight."  - Chris Tolley, Aurora (Sale)


"Allison provided invaluable knowledge and expertise in selling my house.  It was an unusual property, but she guided the entire process smoothly, from advice on staging to completion of the sale - and she did so with incredible patience and good humour.  I would recommend her highly."  - Dr. John McIntyre, Aurora (Sale)


"We contacted Allison while planning a move to Canada.  She was handling the sale of the home we ultimately purchased.  She made herself available by phone and email, often well after regular business hours due to the time difference from where we lived.  She was professional and incredibly knowledgeable about the market and had a lot of referrals to other service providers that got us through the purchase.  After purchase, Allison remained engaged and ensured we transitioned well into the area.  I highly recommend her for home purchases in the North Toronto area.  She is a top notch Realtor!"  - Audrea Golding, East Gwillimbury  (Purchase)


"I would certainly recommend Allison.  She is very professional, hard working and diligent in her work.  Great communicator and kept us informed each step of the way.  Definitely someone who was a great partner in helping us to sell our home.: - Len Jillard, East Gwillimbury (Sale)


"My fiancee and I recently hired Allison to help us find a home in Toronto.  We really felt she was in our corner through the entire process.  She toured countless homes with us and always offered (solicited) advice on everything from location or work to be done in the home to improve it, to long-term value of the home or even how we might lay out furniture within.  She also helped us keep our sanity through multiple losing bids and in the end, helped us find a home we are very happy with.  I would hire her again or recommend her in a second." - Anthony Sapp, Toronto (Purchase)


"We called Allison after a disastrous experience with other agents.  Allison has given back our faith in the process, both as sellers and buyers.  She was wonderfully professional, knowledgeable, thorough and accommodating, and a pleasure to work with.  We can not recommend her more highly, and in face we already recommended her to other people.  By the end we came to think of her as a friend more than our agent." - Marta & Gene Tomory, Stouffville (Sale), Toronto (Purchase)


"Allison is simply amazing.  She was the reason we have our dream home and for that, we are forever grateful.  She maintained professionalism throughout our search and gave us accurate insight for each home we visited.  She made what could have been a stressful process, a fun and educational one.  We would not know what we would do now, if she wasn't there to guide us.  We have recommended her services to friends and family, and they too have had the same positive experience.  Thank you Allison!" - Kristen & Ryan Cosley, Toronto (Purchase)


"Allison provides a sense of comfort that overcomes the stresses of buying and selling a home, due to her competence and availability at all hours to answer any question.  We thoroughly benefited from her expertise and her tireless effort to understand and achieve our objectives." - Abe & Dana Khademi, Richmond Hill (Sale), Aurora (Purchase)


"Since we met Allison Parent it's been a joy to work with her.  She guided us through to the successful sale of our house and her patience and advice was always remarkable.  Allison was not only our listing agent but also assisted us with the purchase of our new home.  She was always very professional and gave the importance and attention to our search as if she were purchasing her own home.  Thanks to Allison's wisdom and vision we found the right house for us at an excellent price.  We will gladly recommend Allison Parent to anyone who is planning to buy or sell a property." - Aldo & Olga Fernandez, Newmarket (Sale), Georgina (Purchase) 


"Coming from Montreal and not knowing what to expect, Allison made us feel confident that we would find what we were looking for.  She looked out for our best interest and was always there for us.  She treats her clients with professionalism, and we wouldn't hesitate to use her again, or recommend her to a friend." - Mike & Darlene Connolly, Mount Albert (Purchase)


"We used Allison to sell our executive home.  She did a fantastic job with great results.  SOLD.  That's the result.  She is personable, knows her business, and is meticulous in the details!  Great job - if you need a good agent for an executive home sale, she's the one!" - Alf Stutzmann, Niagara (Sale) 


 "...Found me the best and most suitable property for our family home in Caledon. Allison is modest, personable, multi-talented and a delight to do business with." - Paul Weinzweig, Caledon (Purchase)
