In 2018, we were looking for a realtor to sell our new, high-end, custom home in the Park District of Georgetown. We believed that this would require a professional, experienced, hard-working realtor, who could offer us extensive market coverage including both TREB and the Oakville Realty Board, with an excellent working knowledge of both Georgetown and the Park District. We interviewed and considered 3 realtors. After some consideration, and after a strong recommendation from a good friend, we chose Betty D'Oliveira. We were very pleased with our choice. In addition to the above traits, Betty also showed a very positive attitude, which she demonstrated throughout the marketing and sale process. We found Betty to be strategic, that she worked well with other realtors, and was very interested in securing the sale. Liana was also excellent to work with, she enhanced what Betty had to offer with an excellent attention to detail, and enabled the Betty-and-Liana team to respond quickly and seamlessly to the often time sensitive demands required in a real estate transaction. We would strongly recommend Betty and Liana to anyone that is considering selling their home.

Betty has such a positive attitude and treats all clients like they are her most important priority. Betty searched for houses with us for months, and then went above and beyond when staging/selling our home. We will only ever use her in the future and recommend her to everyone we know. Betty is truly an expert in her field, and we miss seeing her regularly because she becomes a friend. Love her!

We decided last November that we wanted to move into a bungalow but the move was not critical so we could wait till the proper house was found. I spoke with Betty D’Oliveira who then placed me on the automatic bungalow listing emails. We received these regularly and went to see several with either Betty or Iris. Frustration set in due to the fact that there are so few that come on the market in Georgetown. Betty and Brenda went above the call and hand wrote and delivered notes to many homes in Georgetown that we indicated we liked. Unfortunately their efforts were not fruitful I went to see one 2 story home that I liked but really was not what I wanted and fortunately iris steered me way from this idea and convinced me to wait till the right home came on the market. Well on September 11th this home, which is now our home, came on the market. We saw it at 13:00 and were the victors over 2 others that evening. Many thanks to Betty for burning the midnight oil. The rest is history. Our home went on the market and after 2 competing conditional offers it was sold just before we headed on a 3 week vacation. The team of Iris and Betty is complemented by all the behind the scene work of Brenda Hamilton. Every detail in closing the deal passed through Brenda and she was invaluable in helping us with all the signing details, which seemed endless. We enjoyed working with the team of Iris, Betty and Brenda and would recommend them and Johnson Associates.

We chose Iris and Betty based on performance history, skilled sales team and the ability to make us feel comfortable throughout the real estate process. What stands out most was the level of expertise and skill at the bargaining table for both the purchase and sale of our properties. The experience was nothing but positive.

We sold our home with the team of Iris, Betty and Brenda. From start to finish the experience was outstanding. I have never experienced a better level of service in any business situation. The whole team was extremely attentive, knowledgeable and went above and beyond at all times. They made what can be a stressful situation very easy. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Most important to us was to list and buy with someone we could trust and in whom we felt confident would keep our best interests in the forefront. Iris and Betty were wonderful to deal with. They make a stressful time a pleasant experience. We were never left wondering about whas was going on with our listing and we were kept very well informed of listings for us to look at. Iris and her associate Betty are top notch agents in our opinion. Whenever we've considered an agent to assist us in buying and/or selling a home, we've looked for qualities such as sincerity, honesty, integrity, promptness, professional, knowledgeable and peronable. These ladies have it all! We have had the benefit and pleasure of working with Iris on many transactions over the last fourteen years and there hasn't been one time when we've been displeased with the service we've received. Eventhough Iris is very busy, she takes the time to listen, answer questions and return phone calls in a manner that makes you feel like she has as much time for you as you need. You become "her people" and she strives to achieve the best for you whether it is the best price for your existing home or a new residence. We would highly recommend Iris and her services to anyone requiring the benefit of an excellent real estate agent.

Both Iris and Betty were amazing. As transferrees and having never lived in Ontario, they went over and above to help us understand the Georgetown and Ontario market. In over 25 years in Canada, this was our 8th home that we had bought due to corporate transfers, and I can say without reservation that the team of iris and Betty made our whole experience an absolute delight. They, without doubt, have have been the "best" we have dealt with. In those 8 experiences, we have worked with 16 realtors. I would recommend them to anyone.

Choosing a real estate agent can be one of the most important financial and emotional decisions of your life. My husband Roman, my son Michael and I are new members of your community. We most recently lived on Moore Park and Highway 7 and are now proud owners of 26 Eleanor Crescent, Georgetown. We wanted to share with you our extremely positive experience working with Iris Irwin of Johnson Associates Halton Ltd. Iris was able to: 1. Quickly list and sell our home and secure the purchase of 26 Eleanor Crescent. 2. Meet our financial objectives. We were thrilled with the price for which we sold our house and purchased 26 Eleanor Crescent. 3. Manage our expectations for a smooth, uncomplicated and quick deal. The unexpected bonus is that Iris's commitment to her clients does not end there. The house we purchase was in a state of probate. As a result, the closing dates on both properties were in limbo. Iris stayed close to the progress of the probated will. As much as a month after the purchase of both properties, Iris was actively pushing both parties for resolution to gain commitment on final closing dates. We always felt confident that Iris was there for us in every way. Often you find that once the sale is over, the service disappears. Our experience with Iris Irwin was far beyond our expectations. We recomment her to anyone who is searching for a real estate agent who has in-depth knowledge of the market, unwavering commitment to her clients and an ability to actually sell your home, for YOUR right price.

I do not give out compliments if not warranted, but in this case I feel that both Iris and Betty are exemplary agents and I would use them again or would recommend them to others. It was important that she was knowledgeable of pricing in the area surrounding the home and I had a good feeling and rapport with the agent. She let me decide and was not pushy. Our deal closed so quickly that we have absolutely no complaints. Everything was done as stated and went very smoothyl.
o Iris, Betty & Brenda, You guys are FABULOUS!! I only have wonderful things to say about all of you. Thank you for everythingyou have done for me and my children. I know you have worked above & beyond your job duties.
Dear Iris, Betty and Brenda, I would like to thank you for making the sale of our home so painless. Having been a Realtor many years ago, many folks encouraged me to ‘do it myself’ but I knew that we were too attached to our home to be neutral. Iris, you and your team massaged us through the staging process (both of us kicking and screaming), the listing, and the sale itself with nothing less than a professional attitude. You offered your best advice based on your knowledge of the country properties in this area and you were correct. The quick sale of our home reduced the stress of our retirement move. We very obviously made the right decision when we listed our home with you! Regards,

The sale of our family home was a difficult decision. We wanted the property to go to a buyer who would care for and appreciate it as much as we did. In Betty, we found a Realtor who was able to deal with all our concerns. Three areas were particularly impressive: 1) Betty took control of the negotiation, reduced the stress at a difficult time and effected a seamless sale. 2) Betty helped us to present the house in its most attractive light and was flawless in her attention to detail. 3) Betty was constantly in touch with us, continually appraising us of developments and always being ahead of the game. We are indebted to Betty and the ladies at Johnson Associates for all their hard work!!

Through unfortunate circumstances we found ourselves in need of a new home, and at the time, what seemed to be a very stressful and daunting task turned into the most uplifting experience - thanks to you and your team. It all started with a phone call and we were off to the races. Brenda was extremely helpful and accommodating. She stopped by the house later that same day. Betty, you were absolutely amazing and understanding of our wants and needs, always happy to answer my crazy questions - and there were quite a few! In retrospect I would not look to move during the winter months again however with a little patience, perseverance and a lot of help from our friends at Johnson Associates we found the perfect home. Thank you for everything! Irene and family

The work you both put in to helping us sell our farm and home was incredible. You have a great tact to help us see what could be done for added value. In addition, the measures you took to showcase our home was incredible. I really enjoyed the pictures and videos. We are very happy with the time you gave us and the little amount of time it took to sell. Thank you both very much!
By: Mark I.
I want to thank you for doing a great job marketing our property. I think we were lucky that the "right" buyer emerged early in the process, but the video and the small things that happened along the way got us to a very satisfying conclusion.
