Four bedroom, 2 bathroom 1.5 story home on approximately 15 acres. Plus Barn and detached garage. This home has been in the same family for the last 60 years. There is oak hardwood floors on the main floor. The second floor has cushion flooring covering wood floors. Original hardwood trim. There is a stream that crosses the property on the east side. The electrical panel has been upgraded to 100amp breakers. There is still some older plumbing. The natural gas forced air furnace is approximately 12 - 14 years old. The septic system is older and condition is unknown. This is a great property and close to Owen Sound.
We really were impressed with the professionalism and how well it all went. I really can’t think of anything that you need to do ‘better’. I know you are looking for ways to ‘improve’, but we really were highly satisfied with how every thing went from start to finish.

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.

“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”

“I can’t begin to thank Joyce and her Team enough.
I had my home on the market for over 6 months with a different agent. I took my home off the market in December and when I relisted, I went with Joyce Byrne.. this was the best decision that I have ever made. Joyce connected me with her Team of professionals that helped me prepare for the sale of my home. Once my house went on the market I had 2 offers within 4 days and one of them was $5000 over asking. I then had to purchase a new home and again Joyce and her team were amazing. I found my new home in no time with their help.
I have never known a real estate agent that dots their I’s and crosses their T’s and does it all with such friendliness and professionalism. I would recommend Joyce and her team to anyone who wants to sell or purchase a home. Top rate service! Thanks again to you all.”
I would like to take some time to thank you and your team in helping us with our rental property. Right from day one your professional guidance lead us to believe we made the right choice. You and your team communicated well with me and my wife and lead us to our new tenants.
The information on the computer was easy to read and very descriptive. The contract was written up to our standard and the transaction to meet our new tenants was comforting and certainly felt that all had been looked after.
High five to all that worked on this project and we will certainly refer your business to all. Thanks Joyce!
