Makeover Madness. This 4 level sidesplit with 3+1 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms had a complete overhaul 7 yrs ago - it's a beauty! Open concept main floor with a modern kitchen featuring an island, granite counters, stainless steel appliances & updated bathrooms, windows & doors, furnace, shingles, siding, gas fireplace, Hunter Douglas window coverings, light fixtures, electrical, high eff. water distiller system & Culligan water softener. 3 levels are fully finished - the 4th level walkout gives you extra space for hobbies and/or the opportunity to finish off for additional living space. If that's not enough, you'll love the large private lot with an inground salt water pool (18x36) & covered back patio for those summer days ahead. Loads of parking space. Don't forget the amazing Parkview P.S., the new Foodland & "coming soon" LCBO...Komoka just got even better! All appliances included, as well as a John Deere riding lawnmower & Weber gas BBQ. This one won't last long!
In our past experiences of working with various real estate agents we have been consistently disappointed with what appeared to be a lack of care and attention to detail that you would expect from somebody handling such a large transaction on your behalf. When buying with others, we felt that we were doing most of the legwork and when selling a property it felt like there was little guidance behind the pricing that was set and no selling strategy whatsoever. As a result, we had never used the same individual more than once as we continued to search for the right partner with each new real estate transaction.
We knew that we had found a different kind of team from the first time the Becketts stepped into the home we were planning on selling. Opening every drawer, looking at every aspect of the house, taking pictures and making notes…it was clear they were prepared to do their homework. After the initial viewing of the home we met for several hours reviewing the incredible amount of data they have available to them to set an appropriate selling price based on historical figures, the inventory currently being offered in the market, and the optimal price range for our target customer. There was no doubt about the reasonable selling range we could expect based on all of the information made available to us. We determined a price that was above our initial estimate and received multiple offers which allowed us to sell above our asking price along with tactical guidance from Team Beckett on how to handle each offer. We have no doubt that based on the initial feedback of other real estate agents we had talked to that we would have left at least $50,000 (12%) on the table had we not proceeded with the Becketts.
Team Beckett also took care to walk us through all potential safety, legal and procedural matters so that we had full confidence that we wouldn’t be met with any surprises. They even returned a small portion of the commission that was not spent on the anticipated marketing costs which resulted in them being one of the most competitive agents we have worked with!
We will no longer use anybody else and will insist that those we care about call Team Beckett before listing or looking for a home in Oxford County.

Dear Team Beckett,
I just wanted to take the time to share a bit about our experience with doing business with your team. You came recommended to us through a friend at work that you had helped previously. This individual was excited to point us in your direction, as he was so pleased with his experience with your team. Now that we are settled into our new home, we can easily relate.Our mission was to sell our home in Ancaster and purchase a new home in the Woodstock area. Your team agreed to help us with this no matter how long it took. Clearly, you were true to your word as it took nearly 2 years to complete this mission.
In that time, we viewed countless homes and made 3 attempts at properties of choice. Although we were not successful in 2 of our 3 attempts, I feel your team worked to put us in the best position possible for success. We found the experience of your team very well rounded. As we were unsure if we would buy new or not, it was nice to have a team with such a wide range of experience. We had Sheri who would be able to help us through a new build purchase should we have decided to go that route. We had Terry with his vast knowledge of construction, building code, mechanical systems and real estate as a whole. It was always so reassuring to have you around Terry to ensure no stone was unturned with the properties in which we showed strong interest. It was like having a top-notch home inspector with you all the time. Joy was able to help us with information and perspectives on certain areas and communities throughout Oxford County. Every member of this power ball real-estate team is a wizard in their craft and I’m sure the team will now only be strengthened with Terry JR. learning the ropes.He will make an excellent 4th member as he has great mentors and also shares the name Beckett. The bottom line is your team is very easy and pleasant to work with. Every transaction was seamless and you all did so much to ensure this was a positive experience for us. We felt that your team went above and beyond the normal duties of regular agents for us. One example of many, would be the fact that you would offer to take care of our little Nora for us when our attention was needed to complete things like a home inspection. Sheri, you truly are the baby whisperer. We were also impressed with how you would always personally sit down with a seller to present an offer on our behalf. That personal touch can do so much. We felt that your team worked with a strong moral backbone and that you valued what was right above all. This made us very comfortable and we felt that we could trust you. Trust,has got to be one of the most important things when you are making such a large purchase. In addition, the support you continue to offer after the completion of this transaction has been great. Technically your responsibilities ended with us getting our keys but clearly, that is not how your team works. It’s nice to have you check in as you have to make sure all is good with us and our new home. Thank you Team Beckett for helping us effectively complete our mission.Jenni and I would most definitely recommend your team to any of our friends and family who are looking for excellent professional help in real estate. When we are ready to look at another property, we will have Team Beckett on speed dial.
Since we have moved in, we have met some of our neighbors and have made some new friends as a result. It is becoming clear that Sweaburg is indeed a close nit neighborhood and people seem to look out for each other here.We are happy to be in a safe and friendly place for Nora to grow up. I’m sure she will make lots of friends and will be running through this neighborhood in no time. We look forward to having you all to our new home for a BBQ when the weather improves. Don’t be strangers in the meantime. You are welcome anytime.

Team Beckett, Terry, Sheri, Terry and Joy, all have their specialized work in the buying, selling process, truly a team effort, were so easy to work with. My wife and I interviewed them to see if they were the right Realtors for us. The interview lasted a good hour and within 5 minutes upon completion we knew they were the ones.
We have had several Realtors over the years but Team Beckett are over and above all of the others by far. They are honest, respectful, hard working, considerate, reliable, prompt and very knowledgeable of the market. We could contact them any time of the day and receive a quick response.
Team Beckett were willing to show us any house we wanted to see, fitting us into their busy schedules. They were very thorough in all aspects of the job from marketing your house, looking at houses, pointing out the good and bad points of the house, to filling out ALL the paperwork involved in real estate.
Buying and selling is a very stressful process but they walked us through it, making it so much easier.
We would definitely work with Team Beckett again, if and when the need arises, and would highly recommend Team Beckett to anyone that has interest in buying or selling a home.

We were looking to sell a condo we had originally purchased for our daughter and we were referred to Joyce Byrne by another agent. We were looking for experience and a proven marketing plan. We listed with Joyce and were extremely satisfied with the results! The condo sold very quickly for above asking. Joyce went above and beyond our expectations; she was easy to communicate with and gave us great feedback. We were also given helpful hints throughout the selling and after sale process. Joyce is very professional and knowledgeable. We would not hesitate to recommend Joyce to friends and family or call her for any future needs you may have.

“Bravo to Joyce and her Team!
When we decided to sell and purchase something smaller, Joyce Byrne was referred to us.
It didn’t take us long to realize we had picked the right team. Each team member is a professional in their specific area.
This can be a very stressful time, Joyce’s Team seem to have the ability to take the edge off. Every aspect of the real estate world was handled with courtesy, professionalism, knowledge and promptness.
What more can you ask for? I would be an honour to be used as references for this exceptional Team”
“YOU GO BYRNE TEAM”
