Many Thanks NancyIt is with sincere professional intent that I want to send my grateful recognition to Sotheby’s regarding the recent sale of our home at 169 Gate Street in Niagara on the Lake.
We were represented by Nancy Brazeau who introduced herself as an incredibly respectful individual in the real estate market where we had come to know a number of agents in this area. Nancy’s initial meeting struck me as professional and warm from the beginning as delicate decisions were being made for a change in our lives with the hopes of a successful sale after being on the market for 18 months previously.
In every viewing and consideration for that particular client Nancy was clear and attentive to time of showing and review of comments thereafter while always paying cautious attention to everyone’s wish list and privacy of information.
Upon viewings that could possibly and did turn to offers, Nancy demonstrated noted tact and patience for all parties in consideration to bring our sale to a close. Questions regarding necessary steps we all needed to take to secure our wisest acceptance was informative, well researched and always redirected with a plan to return with further details if Nancy did not know the definite answers to potential challenges.
With sincere pleasure and privilege,
Lori BisbackLori and Al Bisback, 169 Gate Street, Niagara-on-the-Lake
Fantastic AgentI wanted to take the time to thank and express my gratitude, respect and admiration for Nancy Brazeau of Sobethy’s International Reality Canada. During the course of just under a year Nancy Brazeau has been involved in three different real estate transactions for my family. During this time she has consistently displayed professionalism, determination and thoughtfulness in all facets of my dealings. The level of integrity, honesty and hard work she demonstrates is nothing short of excellent and I would most definitely recommend her and her team with any serious real estates needs.Faye Patan & Family, March 22, 2016
A Note of AppreciationThis purpose of this note is express my appreciation and respect for Nancy Brazeau, the managing broker for Sotheby’s in the Niagara on the Lake Office.
Nancy has been involved in four different real estate transactions on my behalf (three residential and one commercial property) since 2012.
In each instance she has shown a high level of knowledge of the area and the current market conditions. She provided excellent advice on pricing and marketing programs to help me with buying and selling decisions. Her knowledge of zoning, planning, financial and other technical issues related to commercial properties was especially valuable. She has a very extensive network of town government officials, lawyers and other knowledgeable people to draw from when necessary.
Nancy is determined, and personable and operates with a high degree of integrity. I would recommend her services to anyone serious about selling or buying real estate in the Niagara region.
