Sold a large house & bought a bungalow
"Rose Swann did a wonderful job in both selling our former home and assisting us to find a perfect home that met our current wants and needs. She was patient and helpful yet mindful of our desires. We've used other agents in the past when trying to sell a home, and found that they spent too much of their time trying to convince us to lower our price instead of on marketing. Rose was not like that. She respected our price and worked tirelessly to successfully obtain a good price. The proof of her abilities is how much we are enjoying our new home. We have already recommended her to friends and feel that we started with a realtor and ended with a real friend."

Moved to a smaller home
We want to sincerely thank you for all you've done for us during the process of buying and selling. Making the decision to downsize was an emotional one for us as our home holds so many happy memories and its definitely more difficult to lose space than to gain. Within two weeks you listed and sold our home and we were able to very close to our asking price. We were concerned about listing our home without having purchased a home to go to: however we'd lost out on a purchase because we had the "condition of sale of your home". You reassured us that you would work hard to find what we needed once our house sold and you definitely did that! Your honesty, professionalism and commiment to helping us find a new place to call "home" is so very much appreciated. Rose, we couldn't have asked for a more dedicated person to act on our behalf throughout this entire process and it would have been so much more stressful without you. Thankyou, from the bottom of our hearts, for all you've done for us.

Second home buyers
"Jeff and I would like to thank you for all your help during the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. We are both very happy with the expert advice you gave us when listing our house (which sold in one day on the market) and even more so in the effort you put forth in listening to and meeting our needs and concerns. Your integrity, honesty, professionalism, and dedication are greatly appreciated by both of us. You made the entire process an enjoyable experience. Thank you again."

First Time Sellers
"We would like thank you so very much for all of your help when it came to selling our home. You went above and beyond answering all of our questions, most of them repeatedly, and making sure we really understood the process. This was the first time I have had to sell a home and I feel we made a fantastic choice having you as our Real Estate Agent. You do your job so professionally that I would recommend you to anyone selling or buying a new home. There was not one time that I could not call you and find out the status of our home. We would also like to say, how often you went out of your way to show our house when at times it was a bit difficult for us, do to our schedules and our dogs. You made sure it happened.
Once again Rose thank you a wonderful job and patience with us while we went through this exciting time in our life."

Tried to sell privately
This year we decided to downsize our large home in Winona to a small bungalow. After being unsuccessful in trying to sell our home privately, we enlisted Rose Swann and are happy to say, that we did sell our home at a very good price. We credit our sale to Rose who was professional, personable, understanding and always available when needed. Rose always returned our calls promptly; gave us honest feedback after every showing and discreetly suggested staging which obviously helped sell our home. She believed in our home being worth the price we wanted and stood by us to the end.
We again used Rose to help us find our new home. She showed us homes that we wanted to see, which often required her to drive as far as Oakville. She had a good idea of the kind of house we wanted and sometimes had to steer us in the right diredction, when we were getting off track.
We are very happy and satisfied with the services Rose provided and have recommended and will continue to recommend her, to our family & friends.

Quickly found the right home!
We looked for the right home for our family for several years without success, before meeting Rose Swann. To start, she met with us at our home and did a full market evaluation of the house we were going to sell and assessment of our needs for purchase. Our needs were quite specific in the location, type of house and budget. Soon after meeting us she took us to look at the first home with her. The house was priced above our budget, and needed some work to make it "our home" She helped us determine the right purchase price for the house, which would be within our budget. We took several weeks and several visits to decide to make an offer on the house. During that time, she answered our many questions and put no pressure on us to move forward.
When we were ready to make the offer, we were faced with another offer in competition. Rose worked her magic to convince the sellers to accept our offer. We then had family members come forward and ask to purcahse the home we were selling. Rose worked with us and our family members in this unique situation. Throughout it all, she was very professional, helpful and even arranged for a trades person to help with some work in the new home. Her many years of experience and knowledge of the area are invaluable. We would definately recommend her to family and friends. Unfortunately, we will not be able to use her services again in the near future...... we love our new house too much!
