To all those concerned about selling your home. My wife & I contemplated listing with one of the discount real estate firms in the hopes of saving on the commission fees and were prepared to list our house at $589,000. which the agent representing of a discount company agreed was a good number according to her research of homes sold in our area. Bill Rayson who has been selling homes in our area for many years advised us that this was way to low and suggested we should be at $650,000. and the result was that we got $675,000. So while Bill's commission is higher on this transaction, we are well ahead of our expectations as a result of Bill's knowledge of the current market. Bill & Maria Rayson are knowledgeable & diligent agents you can trust and less is not neccessarley the best. Thanks Bill & Maria

My wife and I want to thank you for helping us find a beautiful home. You listened carefully to our needs and requirements and you managed to find us a property that suits both our needs and budget. Being first-time homebuyers, we were quite unfamiliar with the entire home purchase process. Nonetheless, you explained the process to us in a clear manner, and you provided us with accurate initial costs estimate. You made the process straightforward and stress-free. We also wish to thank you for your patience and efforts as you took us to see different properties. You were very prompt in dealing with our inquiries and in returning our phone calls. You made yourself available at times that were convenient for us. We were especially pleased with the way you handled our purchase offer in a multiple offer situation. Your expert advice and professional handling led to the acceptance of our offer. Overall, we felt very comfortable dealing with you. We find your experience and knowledge of the real estate business to be at the highest level. The entire experience has been positive and we are glad to recommend you to any prospective home buyer.

Please forgive me for not writing before to thank you for all the time and especially the patience that you extended to my sister and myself in helping us find our new home. We had viewed so many places that there were times when I had lost all hope and my only crutch was your confidence and reassuring words that you would find us a home, and you were right. We like the apartment very much, it is airy and has a lot of light. In particular, we enjoy the morning sun streaming into the rooms, the plants love it and our friends like it too. The building itself is quiet and quite clean, that pleases me very much. Mr. Rayson, I have no hesitation in saying that it was a pleasure dealing with you. You were always so calm, reassuring, and willing to give direction and advice. During a showing, you never rushed us or made us feel tense or pressured to buy. Your interest and behaviour towards us was more like that of a friend than a real estate agent, so we felt confident relying on your knowledge and good judgment for as long as you were there we would not make a bad decision. Your service even extended to choice of movers, advice on financing, reminder to book the elevators and to advising the Post Office of our intended change of address. You thought of everything, I was impressed. I would never hesitate to recommend you to anyone, the service you provided was exemplary. I would like to wish you good health and continued success in the real estate business. Remember, as I have told you several times before, because of your patience you have a place reserved in heaven. Lastly, I would like the thank you very much for assisting me in resolving my recent dilemma; that was really appreciated. Thank you again and my best wishes.

Dear Maria, I would like to thank you for your excellent services in the recent sale of my Aunt's house. I was very impressed with your professional conduct throughout the whole process beginning with your initial presentation, to the completion of the very quick sale. Not living in the area, I thought I would experience some difficulty with this sale. My concerns were quickly put to rest by your positive attitude and your attention to detail. I believe your knowledge of the area and the current market conditions were instrumental in the quick sale of the house. You made it much easier than I expected. As the house was not occupied during the listing, I really appreciated your security checks of the house and taking the time to confirm this with me on a daily basis. I would not hesitate to recommend your services. It has been a very positive experience and I enjoyed working with you.

Dear Mr. Rayson, We would like to thank you for your professional and also personal service in selling our apartment at 10 Dean Park Rd. The apartment was for sale for at least seven months before we switched over to you as our Agent. You sold it in a relatively short span of time. Your personal service even included cleaning my mess in the apartment, leftovers from painting and you vacuumed the place when I was not able to do it myself. Should we ever be in need of a real estate agent, you can be assured that we will seek you out and ask you to be our representative again. This is a thank you letter to you personally, but if you want to use it as a reference you are welcome to give your clients my telephone number at your discretion. Thank you again for your services and all the best in your future endeavors.

Dear Bill and Maria, I just wanted to take this time to say Thank You. When it came time for my brother and I to sell our mother's condominium earlier this year, I told my brother that I had heard of you from friends of mine. They said you take great care in making sure the best is done for your clients, and were they ever right! It was a difficult time for my brother and I, but you made it easier. Your knowledge, patience, and your willingness to go the extra mile to do what was best for us, made us relaxed and the whole situation easier. When it came time to look at an offer, you surprised us. After you explained the offer to us, you gave the other agent a chance to say what she wanted. Little did we know that you were learning about the buyer and how you were reading the agent. When she was finished, you took us aside and made your suggestion on what we should sign the offer back to get the most money. You then told us what the agent would say, and asked us to just follow and agree to what you said. You also reminded us that the other agent was working for the buyer. We did as you asked and to our amazement, the other agent responded exactly as you said. Even though we were willing to take a lower price, you held firm and later that evening we learned that the buyer accepted the higher price. What you did made us extra money for our mother and got us top dollar for her condominium. What I heard about you was definitely true; you do take care of your clients in a fair, professional manner - always polite and with no pressure. It is hard to impress my brother but you sure impressed him. You also impressed me so much that when my son said he wanted to buy his own place, I told him to talk to you. He is now in his new condominium, very happy and impressed at how you walked him through his purchase from start to closing. Bill and Maria, if at anytime I hear of someone thinking of buying or selling a home, I will tell them to go to you. I know from my experience and my son's experience, that they will have the best experience possible.

Dear Maria and Bill, Please accept this letter as an expression of my sincere thanks for all your help and advice in purchasing my first home in Canada. As a new immigrant to Canada, I knew little about the house buying process in Toronto and had little knowledge. As the recipient of your realty services, I consider myself very fortunate to have been given your names as my Realtors. From the beginning, you explained in detail the process and outlined both the mortgage and hidden costs involved in the purchase of a house, enabling me to accurately budget for my new home. You listened patiently to my requirements with regard to the type of house I wanted and my financial constraints and provided me with invaluable advice on locations. The latter was particularly helpful to me as a newcomer to Toronto. Your willingness and patience to show me the houses I requested at my convenience is greatly appreciated. During these viewings, I never once felt pressured and came to rely on your knowledge and honesty. When the negotiations for my new home began, I had every confidence you were acting in my best interests and trusted your judgment completely. Once the deal was completed, you continued to assist me by recommending reputable and reliable contractors and service providers for which I thank you. Finally, I would be more than happy to be used as a reference for your realtor services with future clients. I will also happily recommend your realty services to friends and family. Thank you again for all your help and for the lovely housewarming gift, and I will definitely use your services when the time comes for me to move again.

Hi, just a note to say thanks for all you have done for us throughout this process. As first time buyers, we had a lot of unanswered questions regarding the purchase of our home. Thank you for providing the answers to many of these and giving us informed advice on the homes that we visited!
