We wanted to thank you for your time, insight, encouragement and loyalty in helping us find a wonderful home. As first-time home buyers, we were both nervous and excited and definitely particular! It was reassuring to know that we had a great team behind us.
If we could sum up our experiences working with you, we would have to say that it was like spending time with old friends. We laughed, we winged, we debated and we discussed.
You quickly learned what we desired in a home. We stood in many foyers, kitchens, bathrooms and basements, and it didn't take you long to know whether or not it was a contender. We didn't waste time viewing options that didn't make sense for us. You and Pat were professional and exuded a sense of ease. Your patience with us shined.
When we began the purchase process, we spoke to you more than we spoke to anyone else. "Wheaton" trumped family and friends! You were quick to respond (even at odd hours, and even if we spoke just moments before). Thanks for that.
What a relief it was to move into our new space. We are very happy. We love our home. We thank you for your guidance.
Leslie and Pat — thank you very much for your commitment to helping us reach this milestone. It is simply perfect!

Where to begin with our thank you for your assistance in the purchase of new home! As first time_ buyers Scott and I had a Multitude of questions and concerns regarding purchasing a home, you answered them all with honesty and sincerity. You always explained the process so we,never felt overwhelmed, and showed us so many homes, that we are certain'that we have the best one for us!
One of the greatest joys of working with you is that you consistently went out of your way for us. Whether it was picking us up at home, giving us references, or finding answers to questions that only Scott could come up with! You made-the whole process a positive experience, even after losing the first home we bid on
It was a pleasure to work with you and we wish you the greatest successes in the future.

Dear Leslie, I want to thank you so much for acting as my agent! I found you to be extremely focused, dedicated and thorough in all the fine details involved in my house purchase. You went above and beyond to help me acquire the right house, at the right price, and for the right financing.
The property I have been so fortunate to have purchased was a complicated, unique opportunity which proved to be fruitful in the end. You were instrumental in coordinating the complex financing behind this country property. You ensured that all key administrative tasks were handled and I had nothing to worry about. You negotiated reasonable terms and price point for me. I feel that this deal is a win-win for both me and the seller.
The peace of mind I had while working with you on this deal ensures that I will procure your services again for the next house purchase.
Your ability to finesse a complex deal gives me further confidence that our next deal together will be soon!
Thank you so much!

I have to admit when it came down to trying to sell our home for the 3rd time, the lead up to it was very stressful. Then you came in and made everything so much easier to manage. To think it would sell the first day was the furthest thing from our minds! We contribute all of this to your hard work, market research and professional expertise.
You helped us overcome our doubts and fears and helped tremendously to get our home prepared for those initial showings. We are thankful for your advice and tips on getting our home in the best saleable condition and for your patience, understanding and personal friendship.
You got us through the couple of small hurdles and kept us calm and confident.
We have a lot to think about now but having this first hurdle accomplished is a big relief. We will definitely be recommending you to everybody we know that is thinking of selling or buying a home.
Thank you again and let's keep in touch!

Dear Leslie, cannot express how grateful I am to you for all your help getting me through an unusually difficult process in purchasing my first home. There were extreme obstacles that I had to overcome but your professional expertise and support got me through it all. I found my dream house and made a good friend in the process. I could not imagine going through this purchase process with any other agent.
All the best to you to the future and get ready for referrals to come your way!
Funny to think that Stewart and I thought it would be fun to go "look" at open houses one day just for a laugh. I'm glad we did because it lead us to you.
I was a big fan of yours immediately because when we told you what we were potentially looking for you said "this house isn't for you". I knew you were going to help us find exactly what we wanted and in the area we wanted to live. Plus Boris loved you, and I knew that was a fortuitous sign.
Now less than 2 months after that fateful meeting we weren't even anticipating moving this year, we have a wedding to plant), you've helped us purchase our first house together and sell our condo for much more than we anticipated. You went above and beyond in so many ways and you made the experience so easy and enjoyable for us. We honestly cannot thank you enough.
My wife and I would like to tell you how thankful we are that we fell into your professional hands. Being first time home buyers we thought we were in for a painful and confusing process. However, you made everything so simple and clear and were always there to answer our endless questions that we quickly realized there was nothing to worry about.
From the time we started looking at homes you gave us all sorts of advice and accommodated all of our "must-haves" with patience. We are specially grateful that, once we found our dream home, you fought for us the whole time and worked hard at getting all issues straightened out before our closing.
Finally, we would like to say "gracias!". We couldn't have asked for a better real estate agent to help us buy our house and if we were ever to require the assistance of another real estate agent you would be, without a doubt, our first choice.

After finally moving into our dream house this weekend, Frank and I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for all your help.
When we first met with you a few weeks ago, we were new to this entire process and really had no idea what to expect. Your hard work and dedication was apparent from the very beginning, and you went over and above to make sure that we were never lost, or overwhelmed in the crazy real estate world!
Not only did you happily answer all of our questions (at all hours of the day!), but you were both always honest, which was greatly appreciated. You were also very accommodating to our ever changing idea of what we wanted, always willing to show us everything and provide valuable feedback and insight.
When it came to actually bidding on a property, your experience was evident, and you were able to talk straight with us about the process and what we could expect. You advice and guidance managed to suppress any fears or trepidations we felt about making such big decisions.
We would highly recommend your services to anyone looking to buy a house. Please know that we cannot thank you enough for helping us find our home!
Frank & Rebecca
It's been almost eight months since we took possession of our new home, and every day I'm thankful to you.
Thank-you — for helping Ken and I find our first home together. Ken and I dreamt of the day that we would have a place of our own, where we could share happy memories and build our new life together. You helped that dream come true. You not only helped make it come true, you made it awesome!
Remember when we first started looking for houses, we gave you all our criteria, we voiced our concerns and likes and dislikes. You took it all in and patiently listened....but then you also used your knowledge of the market to evaluate our situation and you encouraged us to look further a field, areas we weren't familiar with from EAST to WEST. One of the best decisions you made for us! The home we ended up getting was the second one we saw in the area...when I saw it I knew straight away...this was the one!
Ken and I were so ready for the change and you were there, right beside us (keeping up!). You are very professional, you helped us through the whole process with patience and you really care. You don't find that combination in realtors too often, and that is what tells you apart.
Everything about our place is so positive — the neighbours, the size of our place, the price was brilliant, the timing, the space for the kids, the location is unbelievable....THANK YOU! You don't know how much this has changed our lives.
So basically you rock!
Thanks again for all you guidance and support in this very big decision in both our lives. I will always highly recommend you to anyone needing a realtor.
Ken & Kathy
We met Leslie at an open house and her enthusiasm for real estate was immediately clear. We began working with Leslie that day and were very confident that she would be committed to finding us the perfect home. Over the next few weeks, Leslie sent us many listings, took us to several showings, and was always available to answer our questions. She took great care in learning what we wanted in a home and also opened our eyes to other features and great neighbourhoods that we may not have considered on our own. Not long after we met, Leslie found us our first home and it's absolutely perfect for us! Overall, working with Leslie was very easy - she was organized, thorough, and very flexible, not to mention extremely friendly!

Rideau Finishing Services is an established contracting company, partnered with Benjamin Moore Painting and Decorating Services Incorporated. As the owner, I have had dealings with dozens of real estate brokers over 20 years. Many have impressed me and several have become friends,
When it was time to sell my own home/offices however, I chose Leslie Wheaton to represent my interest,
chose her because she is thorough, eager and a consummate professional, Her market evaluation proved correct as the property sold quickly ror 97% of my asking price. Further, she was invaluable at inspection time when the buyers hesitated. Her mediation skills ensured that the deal went through as originally agreed.
I have no hesitation in recommending Leslie Wheaton as a valuable ally in any real estate deals.
What a ride eh!!? What can I say, I finally own my own piece of industrial real estate and have a place in which to fully function as an automotive performance shop in the city of Toronto. We are cleaning up, setting up and getting ready for a serious automotive shop up here in the North end of Toronto. I can't wait to start turning a wrench!
My old shop was crowded, tight, not really a shop and just plain no room for improvement. I needed to get my butt out of there and into something more professional: Leslie to the rescue!
Not only were you there every step of the way, but there was no time too late, no time too early and let's just say that you lent an ear on more than one occasion under less than hospitable conditions © Your drive and determination to keep me happy, satisfied and level headed is just unheard of in your business from anyone that I know. You kept me informed and that just fills me with so much confidence as I write this.
There were times I didn't know this was actually going to go through, but you kept reassuring me that everything was going to work out and it did! Your steadfast mentality and attention to detail made easy work of the difficult situations we encountered.
I'd recommend you to anyone in a heartbeat as they will be impressed with the amount of knowledge and professionalism that you will bring to anyone who is selling or purchasing real estate.
Genuinely, Thanks a million for everything,
Thank you so much for all of your work helping us buy our first home. Leslie, if it wasn't for meeting you that day at the open house, we truly don't think we would have been able to get our home, especially considering all of the other people who submitted offers.
From the moment we met both of you, we could tell that you were knowledgeable, professional and very well organized. This being our first time buying a home, you took the time to explain all of the important details in a clear and meaningful way. Despite the multiple offers, you helped us feel calm and came up with a winning strategy to seal the deal.
After our offer was accepted, you helped walk us through all the other necessary steps for purchasing a home. You made the process easy by answering all of our questions clearly and efficiently. You accommodated us so well when it came to booking a home inspection and other access visits. Furthermore, you helped us get an excellent mortgage by connecting us with Alain Lavoie.
Working with you from start to finish was a distinct pleasure. We would be more than happy to provide a reference for you. If any of your potential clients are looking for a reference, please feel free to give them our contact information.
All the best to you in 2015!
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation for Ms. Leslie Wheaton.
During our dealings with her as our Real Estate representative, she conducted herself most professionally at all times. She proved to be resourceful, informative and obliging. She also took great care to arrange private viewings around my schedule, as I have a young baby. My husband and I felt that Ms. Wheaton's work surpassed the support that most Real Estate members offer. She produced very innovative pamphlets for our open house and even hand delivered flyers to our neighbours within a 5 block radius.
Ms. Wheaton was reliable and punctual and took a very personal interest in our well being.
For these reasons, I have no hesitation in recommending Ms. Wheaton as she would be an asset to any homeowner when buying or selling property.
Mrs. Shona Mindzak
It has been a crazy few weeks since we've moved but I wanted to take a moment to tell you how you've made a great difference in our lives.
When we decided to move, I initially wanted to sell our home myself. I just couldn't imagine paying someone else to do it, but I quickly realized that we needed professional help to sell the single most valuable asset we owned to get the best price.
The moment we met you I knew you were different to the other realtors that we've used before. You really took the time to understand what we wanted in a home and when we found it you helped us prepare our home for sale. I must admit, at one point — I thought, "Leslie's too nice to sell houses!" but then... I saw you negotiate with a potential buyer and my concerns were quickly quashed, as you were very impressive!
Leslie, you did a fabulous job of selling our house. Our home sold for the highest price in our neighbourhood and for 97% of the listing price!
Dennis and I will wholeheartedly recommend you to all of our friends and acquaintances because we have confidence that your professionalism and dedication will impress them as much as it impressed US.
Thanks again for your guidance and support. It was greatly appreciated. Please, let's keep in touch!
Dennis and Sam Cooke
P.S. Leslie, on a personal note - I must also add that I found buying and selling a home a huge emotional thing to go through. What made it easier was having you to talk to — at anytime. You saved me from going insane and you truly cared about us. Thanks for being so supportive.
This letter is to thank you on behalf of the entire Goodyear family.
Selling my parent's home was at times emotional and very stressful. In preparing the house, there were occasions when many of our fondest memories were brought back. Your professional help, open manner and personal approach were exactly what we needed to help us through this difficult time.
As you were aware, there were at least five agents willing to take on the challenge; however, there were none willing to take the time to understand the situation and to provide the help and guidance in preparing our home for sale. We truly appreciate your efforts in researching the market, developing awareness around the neighborhood and providing the right analysis for the selling strategy.
Your help with the details associated with presenting the house and your additional help with maintaining the grounds were truly appreciated. Your enthusiasm, interest in detail and drive to accomplish results are what made this a better experience for Marilyn, Donna, and I.
Lastly, when it came down to the short strokes of deciding when best to let go, your manner and negotiation skills help immensely.
Thank you again for your professional help as well as your personal friendship.
Thank you so much for helping Tvrtko and I find our first home. It's everything that we hoped it would be. After just a brief discussion, you knew what we wanted and that's exactly what you gave us! Its crazy how you did that! We saw only One house and it was THE ONE!
With a baby on the way, our apartment was going to be a tight fit and we didn't know if we could make die leap into a house, We are truly grateful for how easy you made it for us. We didn't know anything about buying a house and your suggestions and advice were so supportive.
You made our dream come true and we plan on creating many memories for our family here, I will definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a realtor. We wish you all the best.
Andre and I just wanted to say "Thank you" for the tremendous effort you gave in finding us the house wc wanted! It has been a couple of months since we took possession and every day we are more convinced that we found the perfect place for our first hornet
lAre sincerely appreciate the dedication, time and patience that you invested in us.
