Nancy was recommended to us by virtue of her reputation in the residential real estate market. We needed to move swiftly to sell my parents' home to help fund their care. Nancy quickly pulled together a market value and encouraged us to put the house on the market quickly to beat the spring rush. The house sold in 2 days -- with multiple over-asking offers. The offer we accepted ticked all the boxes in terms of deposit, closing time, and no conditions. Nancy streamlined the process and delivered speedy results. We are grateful to her and her team.

Nancy was fantastic to work with, she sold our house in 3 days, while we were away enjoying our honeymoon, need I say more! Yes I do. Nancy worked with us to insure our house presented as great as possible, then after the sale stayed in touch through the entire closing process. Not only is Nancy an expert in real estate, she is also such a warm and pleasant person.

The Festarini Team, We all know how stressful selling your house can be. Well, Nancy Festarini and her team made our sale as stress free as possible. From signing up, to preparing our house for sale and finally putting it on the market, they helped us all the way along. And our house was on the market for just one day before it sold!! Thank you Nancy and your group of professionals.

Never had a more hands-free experience. Nancy and her Team made the sale of our home smooth, professional and without any stress. They were very caring, engaged and sincerely demonstrated that they had our best interests as their priority. More like family than business partners. We can´t Thank you enough.
The Festarini Team did a great job in selling our house. Nancy had lots of ideas on selling which helped us to stay positive and was always of a sunny disposition. She kept us informed all the time on what was happening throughout the whole selling process. The whole Team from Day 1 was there for us and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you Team Festarini for helping us achieve our dream of moving to Vancouver to be closer to our son and his family.

Our experience with Nancy Festarini and her team was wonderful! Their professionalism during the entire process was outstanding and they made us feel like selling our home was a top priority. Nancy definitely exceeded our expectations of a real estate agent. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable, she is realistic and grounded, which helped guide us in the right direction to sell our home as quickly as possible. Nancy and Rita were always available to answer our questions and made us feel at ease during what could be a very stressful time! From offering staging services to creating very professional-looking flyers at no extra charge, we felt like we were in good hands right from the start. I will definitely recommend The Festarini Team to family and friends!

The experience we had for selling our house was AMAZING ! Nancy was so knowledgeable on exactly how everything had to be done to get our house ready. She offered several different services for us to use at no charge. She was always checking in to see how I was since it is a very stressful thing to go through. The flyers of our home were very Professionally done. She went way beyond the average level of customer service to make sure we were very satisfied with our listing and the sale of our house. I will highly recommend her services to any one that will be selling their house.
I was recently at your pumpkin giveaway, and was thanking you for allowing us to take 2 pumpkins as our street was going to be having a halloween themed event, which included pumpkin carving. You then astouned me by not only offering an additional 10 pumpkins, but delivered them to my house! Thank you so very much I will be letting everyone know of your generosity! Thanks again!

It has been a pleasure working with you Nancy regarding the sale of my house. You put up the sign on my lawn on Friday evening, a sign I might add is a real eye catcher. Phyllis Nicholson is a charming lady who took the people through to view, along with others, some from other real estate companies. Several families went through to view on Saturday and I believe two offers were received by you after that. I received a call later on the Saturday from you asking me to come to your office on Sunday at 11a.m. After negotiating, the offer was accepted by me. Thanks to both you and Phyllis, everything went really fast. Now we wait until early July for everything to be final. Many thanks.

We chose to work with Nancy as we were familiar with her and her wonderful family as we reside in the same neighbourhood. When we first contacted Nancy about selling our rental property, there was absolutely no hesitation with her quick response to all of our questions & concerns, which she presented with her vast knowledge. Also, we had an awkward situation with our tenant, and Nancy didn't blink an eye as her huge ability to work in any situation was demonstrated with class and professionalism. Nancy advised us to list at the accurate market value and we had our property sold within 10 (?) days at the price we wanted. Nancy called us with updates and to see if we had any questions or concerns daily. We highly endorse Nancy as a top Real Estate Agent and have recommended her to friends/family and they have thought her to be outstanding as well. Our family would not hesitate to contact her again.

We want to thank you for your exceptional help, attitude, knowledge and personal support. After approx 26 transactions, we feel these have been the best two we have experinced. Greg and Linda Taylor

As a relative New Comer to Canada who had very little knowledge of the Real Estate Industry, it was a pleasure to work with Nancy. Her Professional approach, her knowledge within the industry along with her desire and commitment to succeed in selling the property was more then I expected. Nancy provided excellent advice on how to prepare the property in order to get it saleable, which I found so useful. After this, she worked endlessly on viewings and open houses and throughout this, she kept us informed at all times. Her negotiating skills are second to none and I have no doubt that she had my best interest at heart. After an offer was accepted, Nancy continued to work on my behalf ensuring that everything was OK until the closing date. I have no hesitation in either using Nancy again or recommending her to my friends or family.
By: Sandie Smart
I just wanted to say that Nancy is amazing at what she does. She got my house listed and sold in a very short period of time. Her expertise is unsurpassed. I needed things to happen fast & they did. I would highly recommend Nancy to all my friends and family. Job well done! Thank you so very much.

Nancy showed herself as a caring professional from day one. On the selling side, she sought to understand what my wife and I were looking for and respected our decisions when we felt we should not move on with a deal. On the buying side, she advised us meticulously on the steps to get the best value for our old house and quickly updated her strategies in response to market movements. We ended up getting a good price for our old house and acquiring one that was better than our expectations. I cannot thank her enough for her dedication and would certainly recommend her to anyone looking for a new home.

As you know, we had been in our house at Springbrook Crescent for the past 16 years. During that time, we had tried several times to sell the house. We used different sales agents, even dealt with brokers directly and also, tried to sell the house at "rock bottom price" on our own, through private sale - without any success. I, personally, had made up my mind that this is going to be our house and we should give up on the idea of ever moving away from it. Then, you came along and you must have guessed from the way I spoke to you, that I was not serious about selling. I refused to look at any other houses, since I knew deep in my heart that you would not succeed in selling our house. What a surprise it was for us, when you actually brought in an offer and not just an offer, a pretty good one that we could deal with. You gave us no choice but to sell it, since that was what we had demanded in the first place. You have throughout been very professional and helped us turn this house that we thought was going to be our "retirement" home, into a house that could be sold and allowed us to actually move into our dream home. I would highly recommend you to all serious sellers or buyers. Serious, because God knows, you make it happen! Thanks and best regards.

As first-time homebuyers in Canada, my spouse and I were unfamiliar with the process involved in buying a house in Canada. Nancy was very informative in explaining the steps involved and what to expect. Since we also had the task of selling our current home in the US, Nancy worked closely with our real estate agent in the US to coordinate everything so that our transition was seamless. This is not an easy task, but somehow she made it happen. The amount of time and energy she spent on our behalf was quite remarkable. Nancy was always available no matter what day of the week or time of day. She made every effort to acquaint us with all homes that fit our needs and budget. We had very specific criteria and location requirements for our home and Nancy was determined to find the perfect home for us. She used her time and ours efficiently, yet we were never felt rushed or pressured. Nancy always had our best interests at heart. The result was that we purchased what we considered the best house for us. We are very happy with our new home and we love the neighborhood. We would definitely use Nancy again in the future.

Thank you for all your help in purchasing our new home. You made a very stressful time easier with your flexibility and reassurance. Our work schedule was very busy but you made every effort to accommodate us. Even after our home was purchased your support was excellent with contacting us to see if we had any special needs and responding to them as necessary. We would gladly recommend you to friends and family.
By: Ian & Nicole - Oakville
Nancy Festarini acted as our Realtor on our first home purchase. With my wife and me having limited knowledge about the process of buying a house, Nancy was able to assist us from start to finish, from finding a perfect home to signing the purchase agreement. Nancy’s knowledge of the locations we were interested in was superb and proved very beneficial during price negotiation with the vendor. Nancy looked after our needs without delay, answered all of our questions, (which were a lot) and helped us find the perfect house. Nancy mentioned to us when we first met that she always made it a point to “match the house to the people” and to this end she was absolutely perfect, as my wife and myself love our new house. Nancy was very personable and professional. Her vast experience was obvious to us very early in the process, and we would recommend her to anyone wishing to buy or sell a home.

Since moving to Oakville from Montreal, we have moved 5 times. We had been working with an agent to sell our last house who had suggested a selling price. We went to Nancy for a second opinion when we realized that her market knowledge was far superior to any agent we had worked with in the past. Her suggesting selling price was $20,000 above our original consultation. Furthermore, Nancy negotiated multiple offer s and sold our home above our increased asking price. Nancy was thorough, hardworking, extremely professional and a pleasure to deal with. Her pricing was aggressive but she possessed the negotiating and market savvy to bring it all together. We have recommended her to friends who were as impressed as we were. From our experience, Nancy Festarini’s market knowledge and negotiating skills are far superior to anyone we had dealt with in the past.

We want to tell you how happy we are with our new home. You were right; the neighbourhood is the perfect place to raise a family. The house is just perfect for us in more ways than one, and we simply could not have made the deal without you. Your negotiation skills, perseverance, and ability to understand both sides turned a problematic situation into a win-win one. You truly did an amazing job, and we particularly appreciated how you made your schedule flexible to accommodate the demands of showing us around and making the deal work. Thanks again so much Nancy for all your had work and also for going the extra mile in everything. We'll recommend you very highly to family and friends. Please Keep in Touch

We are very grateful to Nancy for helping us find our new apartment. Having just lately moved to Canada, it was extremely helpful for us to have someone with her experience help us through the difficulties of finding a home here in Oakville. Her advice and support during the process of dealing with the owner of our apartment was a great help. She helped us to get the apartment we fell in love with , though there were some difficulties due to our status as newcomers to Canada, which would have been hard to overcome on our own. Thank you so much.

What a gem Nancy is! Although we had not had a lot of experience with house hunting and with moving, we knew we were engaged in something pretty terrific when partnered with Nancy. Nancy made us feel like we were the only clients of hers (when I know this just wasn't so!). She understood our needs, worked well with our timelines, did her homework so we wouldn't be trotted out to places that may not be suitable, and was caring, lively, personable and fun! Nancy certainly graduated from Customer Service School with honors! I certainly wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone I know buying a house in this area, and just maybe they should think of moving here just FOR the experience! Nancy is the best, bar none!

We just wanted to thank for you everything you have done in selling our home and in getting our new dream home. You were always available to answer any question and offer support. I have enjoyed your super pleasant manner and upbeat attitude. It has been a pleasure working with you and I would definitely recommend you to anyone. You are amazing at your job. Thanks!
By: Jane and Mike Adamyk - Oakville
It was a pleasure to work with a professional like Nancy. She provided sound advice and counsel as we worked through all the details and challenges of buying a new home and selling our old home. She provided lots of opportunities to look at homes that fit our criteria, helped us narrow our search, and was enormously successful in effectively profiling our house for sale - we sold in under 12 hours from time of listing! This was an important decision for our family and it was so helpful to have a trusted advisor to work through the issues and excitement.
By: Teresa & Graham Western - Oakville
Nancy is a very warm, enthusiastic individual whose professional approach shone through every aspect of the work she undertook for us. Through careful listening, she quickly understood our "real" needs in both purchasing our new home and also in the sale of our present home. She was tireless in her efforts to meet our specific requirements and we greatly appreciated that she lived up to every commitment she made in terms of marketing and keeping us informed at every step of the way. Nancy, our sincere thanks for all that you've done - you were terrific.

Tough Times When I think of you and your service I can see a huge basket of fruit on my counter so I wouldn't starve, I can see you out in the rain trying to soothe my dog who had never had to stay outside before, I can see you trying to comfort my son when you hammered the sold sign into the lawn of the only house he'd ever known, I can see you trying to talk me back from the ledge as the home I built with my own to hands slipped through them, and I can remember a spa day that made me feel like all things were possible. I don't know what I could write that would work well on a pamphlet or a sign on the back of a bus but I knew from the start I was in the best of hands. I know you are a matchmaker extraordinaire, people to houses, and homes to lives.

We made the decision to move from Brampton after 25 years to the Burlington area and we had no idea where to start, what the prices were or who we should call. Through a family member we were introduced and recommended to Nancy Festarini of Royal LePage Oakville. We called Nancy and told her of our plans and made sure she knew that we were in no hurry. She suggested that we be put on her Burlington alert email campaign which meant that every time a condo in the area came available we would receive an email. This was a great service as it allowed us to review what the area had to offer without any pressure. When the time was right, we asked to see some of the pending properties. We met her and she was very well prepared with several listings for us to visit as well as price comparisons for the area. She quickly honed in on what we were looking for and didn’t waste our time on properties that we didn’t want. On the second visit to Burlington we found our dream condo. Although we were going out of the country in a few days she encouraged us to put in an offer. Nancy is a true professional, she expedited our offer and we closed hours before we left. She ensured that the deal went through without a hick-up and she was there to support us on the move day, Nancy was 100% committed to our customer satisfaction. Nancy is a wonderful and I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants professional real estate support. Thank you Nancy for all your hard work, you made the transition a pleasure from start to finish and we love our waterfront condo in Burlington.

Nancy is a true professional. Nancy made the whole transition very easy for us. Nancy was always in touch with us. Always there when we needed her. Nancy has a real passion for what she does. She cares about how you are feeling and she definitely stays in your comfort zone. Nancy always followed up on everything she said she would do. We even got a beautiful huge popcorn bowl with all the trimmings right after we moved in. What a nice touch. Nancy also made us moving notices for all our family and friends. If you want the best, then Nancy Festarini is the real estate agent for you. She certainly was the best thing to come our way! Thank you Nancy for all your hard work and dedication. We very much appreciated all you did for us.

On the buying side, she advised us meticulously on the steps to get the best value for our old house and quickly updated her strategies in response to market movements.

Professional, personable, knowledgeable, and incredible follow-up are just a few words to describe how Nancy approaches her work and her customers. Her attention to detail and professional approach helped sell our home quickly and with ease. She is a top-notch professional, yet she makes you feel that you've known her all along Thanks Nancy for all your hard work.
