  • Pete was a great help in helping me sell my home in a very short time and for the amount I wanted. He supplied everything I needed to get the home ready including a professional stager. When it came time to finding a new home, He was very patient with finding just the right place that met all my needs. I would use Pete again anyway to buy and sell.

    Kyle W.  (Buyer and Seller, 2015)
  • So this is our first house and we’ve ever bought, and I thought that Pete was very honest and professional when we’re looking for a house. We put him through a lot we thought we knew what we wanted and we didn’t but in the end he helped us find our dream home and even to this day if I have any questions he’s always available to answer them for me.

    Richard T.  (Buyer, 2015)
  • Pete’s knowledge of the resale and new home construction market is top notch. His experience in the flooring industry and restoration business has given him an advantage over most realtors in the market place. His can-do attitude coupled with his easy going personality makes every customer feel comfortable from their first meeting! I would highly recommend Pete to any client, young or old to feel secure with any purchase they are contemplating.

    John V.  (Buyer and Seller, 2015)
  • My wife and I used Pete Keillor to sell our home and buy a new one. It was the least stressful real estate transaction we have been through. Pete was very thorough and detailed oriented, but with a laid back demeanor. We felt at ease because we knew that Pete had our best interest in mind. The best part is that we got a great deal on the new house and just about full price on our sale. Great job Pete!

  • 5 Stars Melissa was a great agent to work with! She helped us through a long process of searching and buying our first home. She was very patient with us and went to every house I asked even if she knew that we wouldn’t like it. We really felt that she cared about getting us the right home, and not pressuring us into buying the wrong home. We did not know anything about her, or knew anyone who used her services before choosing her as our realtor. I’m glad we did. She is friendly, calm, understanding and made the process fun. She was very knowledgeable and gave great suggestions and tips on locations and things to look for. She was always quick to respond to her messages and very reliable. We finally got the right home, in the right area, for the right price. We will definitely use her services again if we ever decide to move!

    Meghan B. (Buyer, 2015)
  • Melissa was a great agent and I would recommend her to anyone I know. My home was sold in a very short time and she sold it for the price we agreed upon. She assisted with home staging and made the whole process very smooth and enjoyable.

    Kyle W. (Buyer and Seller, 2015)
  • My wife and I found Melissa to be very accommodating with showings (since we were moving from Toronto) and quite knowledgeable in the home buying process. Would definitely use her or recommend her again. For Sure.

    Tony I. (Buyer, 2014)
  • Melissa was a great realtor to work with. She made sure we saw all the houses we wanted, while receiving her candid opinion on the opportunities and deficiencies of each house. After finding the right home, Melissa was a strong negotiator on our behalf. She was knowledgeable, and always accessible. With her help, our house buying experience was efficient and effective.

    David C. (Buyer, 2015)
  • After having a great buying experience with her in the past, my wife and I approached Melissa to help us sell our first house and also to find our ‘forever home’. She amazingly had our house sold within 2 days of listing so we were able to focus on house hunting stress free. After showing us a number of houses we really liked, Melissa suggested a model home in a new subdivision. We fell in love immediately, but the thought of building a house as opposed to simply buying one move-in-ready seemed daunting. Luckily, Melissa has plenty of experience in this area and eased us through the process. Once the builder countered our initial offer, Melissa’s negotiation skills shined as she got us a better price than I had thought reasonably possible and even got us the largest lot at no extra cost. It’s largely because of Melissa that our dream house has become a reality at a price we can afford! Melissa is always very quick to reply to text messages and phone calls. Never left us feeling like we weren’t her number one priority. Melissa is friendly, knowledgeable and experienced. We would recommend her in a heartbeat!
