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.

Joyce, I appreciate all your updates.
Despite the work, selling the condo has been a very rewarding experience. The making money part is also great of course; our timing was good and your expertise and knowledge of the market was invaluable.
We couldn’t have done it without you. I really appreciate your organizational abilities and all the support you provided.

I appreciated the expertise and knowledge Joyce demonstrated in selling my condo.
She used so many means of advertising; her website, extra photos on MLS.ca and more!
Joyce and her team followed up on every inquiry about my property and were most thorough and speedy in reporting back to me!
“My wife and I recommend Joyce and her team without reservations.
Joyce worked closely with us over several months, helping us negotiate the purchase of anew home (presently being built) and the sale of our current home (currently being packed!).
After we decided to work with a builder on our new home, Joyce accompanied us to meetings with the builder and kept very detailed notes that assisted with drawing up the final contract.
After our offer was accepted and we were preparing to put our current home on the market (as well as pack for a family vacation), the builder contacted Joyce to inform her of a problem with building the home we wanted on the lot we selected-it was not going to work. We were faced with the prospect of starting our new home search from scratch, putting the brakes on listing our current home, and a rough start to our vacation. Joyce worked with the builders and a few hours later called back to present a potential solution that we were very happy with! We got the home we wanted in the development we wanted, we got to list our house, and we got to enjoy our vacation.
As an added bonus, Joyce sold our house while we were on vacation.
The number of ways Joyce helped us with the sale of our home are too numerous to discuss in detail, but I will list a few.
First, Joyce showed us a number of homes in our area that had recently sold, as well as homes that were listed but had yet to sell, to assist us with establishing the price we felt reflected the value of our home.
Second, Joyce arranged for a complimentary pre-sale home inspection, allowing ample opportunity for us to fix any noted deficiencies.
Third, a Stager, that is affiliated with Joyce’s team visited our home and sent us a report with specific suggestions for how to organize and decorate our home to optimize the presentation of the property.
Fourth, Joyce contacted a cleaning company for us and provided them access to our home prior to it being available for showing to prospective buyers while we were away on family vacation.
Fifth, Joyce kept in close contact with us via email and phone while we were away on vacation, providing feedback on the open house and other showings (the house was shown about 80 times in a week). She also checked our mail for us while we were away.
Sixth, after the sale of our home (after being on the market for about 2 weeks in total) Joyce and her team have provided a great deal of useful information to assist with the closing and our move.
Overall, we are very happy with the professional service provided by Joyce and her team.”
Joyce suggested exactly how to market the property we had to sell to settle my father’s estate.
She promoted it so we could get an “over the asking price” result, & it worked!
The sale was quick and easy, as we were out of town Joyce managed the property for us.
Here experience really paid off!
