We have worked with Bess Stone for nearly three years in the hunt for our perfect future home. She was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, realistic and patient....all the while maintaining a great sense of humour. She took us to many homes over the years, helping us to define what exactly we were looking for. She kept us posted on market changes in our own area and made valuable suggestions on how to easily upgrade our own home in preparation for resale. When we finally found the right home, she helped us submit a successful offer, still under the asking price. The turnaround for the sale of our own home was fast and a bit nervewracking. With the help of Bess's staging, our house never looked so good, justifying the price we had hoped for. She marketed our home in several print publications, as well as the regular MLS venues, bringing in lots of people for private appointments, as well as the crowded open houses she hosted on the weekend. Within the week we had a bidding war and our house was sold for significantly more than asking....at a time when the housing market was down turning. We don't plan to move for a very long time, but we would recommend Bess Stone to anyone without hesitation! Marg and Jim Kuflowski

One thing we can say about Bess is that she was extremely patient and one of the most down-to-earth agents we have had the pleasure of working with. When my wife and I were looking for our very first home, we were excited, yet a bit nervous because we knew so little about purchasing homes. Bess understood where we were coming from and made us feel very comfortable during a very difficult decision, probably the most important decision we have made in our lives. Highly recommend her, she will not let you down!
We were very pleased with the effort and business acumen of our agent Bess Stone in the sale of our condominium.

Bess was great to work with and I would highly recommend her for your real estate needs.
I was in the market looking for a condo in Mississauga with some specific requirements (newer, larger, central location, amenities near by and all for under $300K). A tall order to fill!
But with Bess's help I was able to find one. I have a beautifiul condo on the 18th floor smack in the most desirable condo area in Mississauga with a spectacular view. I couldn't be happier.
Bess worked very hard for me, negotiated a fair price and made sure all the t's were crossed and i's dotted. A stickler for details, Bess proved without a doubt that she is a very professional and patient real estate agent, and also turned out to be a great person to deal with!
I have and will always highly recommend Bess for any Real Estate needs!!

We would like to express our deep appreciation for all efforts, experience and patience which Bess brought. Bess does not just help you to sell or buy real estate property, she helps to find a place which you will call "Home".

Bess had known for years that we would eventually want to put our Mississauga home on the market, so she kept in touch with us with her informative newsletters. When the time finally came, Bess was the first agent we called and were we ever glad that we did! We found her to be honest, professional, knowledgeable, and available. She gave us her time and commitment, starting from her first visit with her assessment and evaluation of our property which she based on neighbourhood and market comparisons. She offered valuable recommendations which we followed to make our house more marketable. The team of experts she advised for us were incredible, and in no time we had the house ready for our photo shoot, again done by a professional who definitely showed our property to its full potential. The slide show created was excellent – and we had numerous friends tell us that our home never looked better! As soon as the listing hit MLS, we had an incredible number of viewings even before the open house – which in itself had Bess hopping with the number of people who showed up for it – so many in fact, that we had a traffic jam on our court. We found ourselves in the enviable position of having multiple offers and sold our home in three days $10000 above the asking price! Throughout and after the whole process, Bess was approachable and communicated with us regularly. If you’re thinking of a real estate agent who has your best interests in mind, you need look no further.

We had the pleasure of Bess selling our home in April 2012. We had been thinking of downsizing for a while but decided last minute to go for it. Bess was quick to react and pointed out what needed to be done. She put together a very efficient marketing campaign and was committed to back to back open houses, staying late to answer questions and ensure every potential buyer had the details they needed. What we really like about working with Bess is that she was honest and kept us updated. She sold our house in 9 days for 96% of the asking price. Bess is professional, ethical and very thorough. When we decide to venture into our next purchase, we will definitely be calling her to represent us!

The service and personal attention we received from Bess Stone was exceptional and unexpected from a Realtor! Her knowledge of the local market helped us in our search for our first income property. After patiently going through many listings, she helped us find the best property for our needs.
Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, we would highly recommend Bess to our family and friends. We could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide us through the process.

Bess Stone isn't about the high-pressure sales pitch. While other realtors may try to rush you into buying, whisking you through a whirlwind of home tours and pressuring you to sign on the dotted line, she realizes this is a huge step for most and is patient and kind when taking you through your home-buying experience. She takes the time to listen -- she actually listens to you and your needs. It makes you feel like you're buying a home with the help of a friend, and that's a rare feeling. I bought my first home with Bess, after looking at about 30 properties a day for a good solid three weeks. Never daunted, she would dilligently search the market, always being mindful of my budget and not pressuring me to buy something outside of my means. Always professional, she's tough when she needs to be (this is a plus when it comes to negotiating prices, trust me), but otherwise lets you explore and find something that fits you -- on your own terms. If you're looking for an indefatigable, resourceful, and completely thorough realtor, Bess is the one for the job. I cannot sing her praises enough.

“I was extremely satisfied with Bess’ services as she tries to find me the right home instead of pushing for a sale. Instead of a sales agent, she was more like a house hunting guide allowing me to make my own decisions and ultimately walk me through the whole process of buying a house. As a first time buyer, I was very uncertain, especially on such a big item, but she made it easy for me and took into account different aspects of my needs and wants. I would definitely look for her on my next real estate transaction.”

It was a great joy working with Bess. Her expertise, helpfulness and wonderful, kind personality made house-hunting an exciting, joyful experience. I would recommend her to all future clients as a hard-working agent who goes out of her way to accommodate her clients' needs and schedules.
