The following testimonials were written by just some of my happy sellers and buyers. They have all been kind enough to give me permission to show you their correspondence. Their letters and words are very gratifying. It seems that my down-to-earth and honest approach has earned me many friends - I think that's fantastic!
"Thank you very much for the excellent and outstanding effort that you provided in the listing, showing and selling of our property. It is a pleasure to find someone as committed to their work as you are. Your commitment and effort is to be commended. I was very happy with the way that you made yourself available, at all times, in order to pursue the sale of this property. You were very communicative and kept us well advised and informed all during the sale process. The fact that we were able to get a sale price much higher than the list price demonstrates the kind of professional service that you provide. The listing, selling and completion of the sale was all done within one month. An excellent effort here.
Thank you for the excellent professional service that you provided in listing and selling of our property."

" Selling and buying a home is one of if not the major event in one's life. As my bride to be and I embark on our venture of selling our home, and move from White Rock to Toronto. We were very happy that we secured the services of Barbara Ann Kisiloski. As someone that had owned and sold homes in Oakville (more than once), Burnaby, White Rock, and Calgary, I am no stranger to the emotional and financial attachment with selling our home. For the impact of one's realty rep can and often dedicate one's financial future for years, as well as the emotional state of one's family for months? Barbara Ann Kisiloski proved to be the most honest, trustworthy, and hardworking realty personnel that I ever came across. Not only did Barbara conduct business effectively and efficiently, she cares?"

"Thank you so much for the outstanding service you provided during listing and selling my home in White Rock.
The job you undertook with my listing was much more than either of us expected; it was not just a "listing and selling". Not only did you provide the staging service to a great advantage but you were my agent in many other ways. Since I was in the United States and unable to return to Canada due to immigration procedures, you were my link with the condominium community, the endless phone calls, stops at the condominium and attention to detail that was required in our absentee owner situation. You kept the communication lines open at all tmes, you were superb?
On several occasion it was imperative to have documents signed quickly in person which necessitated us in meeting on the south side of the US/Canadian border. Through all the details and hard work, you made it appear effortless on your part and you were unfailingly professional throughout. You promised to work hard and you delivered. Thank you again for the successful completion of selling my home and for the incredible service you extended to me. I look forward to the opportunity to recommend you to others."
Sincerely, Judith Argent
"We have bought and sold many houses throughout the years. Barbara Ann has to be one of the top realtors we have worked with. She takes the time to listen to what you want and then goes out and gets the job done. She is extremely easy to work with and has become a friend. We have happily referred her to many of our friends and neighbours."
"On behalf of the Grewal family, we would like to recognize and thank you for your excellent service to help us find our first home. We very much appreciate your time, effort, and professionalism delivered throughout the whole home buying process.
It was a pleasure to work with such a wonderful and cheerful personality. Ms. Kisiloski is very efficient and dedicated; she very well understands the needs of her clientele and works hard to find the best and the utmost for her clients.
We trust her services and would certainly refer Ms. Kisiloski to our friends and family in future."

"We had originally used another company for the previous three months. My wife and I tried to work with a team to sell our home. We did everything and more to assist, and suport their efforts. Our place was in showhome condition. We had added several valuable upgrades, and of course asked for a higher asking price than other homes in our resort style community. The first thing the previous company agents tried to get us to lower our price dramatically, showing all the other sales in this area. When we would not agree, there seemed to be a lack of effort to sell our home. So we waited until the three month agreement terminated, and then we decided to interview representatives from an array of different Real Estate Companies. Although we interviewed several very professional people, Barbara Ann Kisiloski seemed to us to have superior professional approach and methods different from the others we interviewed and experienced with the sale of several other homes.
We decided Barbara Ann Kisiloski would be our agent and we were not disappointed. She is very organized, dedicated, and ambitious. There were no open houses, just appointments, and she was here to meet with the other attending agents, and to promote the quality and extras in our home, and the benefits of living in the area and community. It paid off, she sold our home in about 5 weeks, and she managed to sell it above our asking price!"

We can't say enough how happy we were with the level of service you provided as our realtor on the recent listing and sale of our home. We knew for some time that you would be our realtor of choice based on our observations of the listings and sales in our area over the years. You were obviously doing something right. Your listings always seemed to sell, and in a timely fashion, while other similar properties languished on the market forever. That being said, you even exceeded our expectations in every way. From the realistic and accurate market assessment, the professional staging and photography, the weekly activity updates, prepping the house for showings, and even providing and replacing flowers for us (absentee owners) your work ethic was astounding and resulted in the sale of our house in much less time than we had anticipated. You made what can be a stressful and emotional time absolutely pain free. Barbara you are a honest and hardworking professional, you deserve every bit of success you have achieved and we wouldn't hesitate to highly recommend you to anyone. We wish you nothing but the best in your future. Thank you!

"Buying a home can sometimes be an emotional rollercoaster, especially when it is in a neighbourhood you know nothing about. In our decision to move from Vancouver to White Rock, we came with the fear, uncertainty and dread of making a bad buying decision. But then we met Barbara and we knew instantly that we were in good hands.
Barbara knows White Rock very well and did all the research to put properties in front of us that met our very demanding needs. When we struggled with making choices, her advice and counsel were invaluable.
We are delighted to be new condo owners in this wonderful city. Thank you, Barbara, for being the consummate professional in every way. You made the whole experience easy for us and we really appreciate all your help in finding us the perfect home."

"Thank you Barbara Ann, for the outstanding level of service you provided during my sale and purchase. I appreciated your thorough market assessment and your willingness to help us find a price point that worked for our goals while still being realistic in the current market. I never felt pressured to lower the price, as I have with some other realtors, and I felt that you were understanding and supportive of my goals while providing honest feedback.
You have a definite flair for negotiating, and I was pleased with how well and efficiently you resolved any issues that arose. You really exceeded my expectations in this area!
Above all, I appreciated your willingness to listen, your honest approach, and your flexibility with the "real-life" interruptions throughout the time we were listed. It was a pleasure working with you!"

It is a pleasure to give this testimonial for Barb. We must first say that Barb is a friend and we had to seriously consider having her as our Real Estate Agent. If things went sideways, which they can, we did not want to jeopardize the forever friendship we have. We knew personally she was hard working, has high values and ethics so we also knew this would be the same in her professional work, and we were correct. From the get-go Barb was prepared; she had a complete market analysis ready to go over with us, the sales agreement ready, all disclosures, etc. We listed and Barb organized a consult with a Home Stager prior to any showings. This was well worth the money to improve the saleability of our home. Then the photographer came for photos and our listing was then live. We immediately had several showings, all of which Barb always gave us time to ensure our home was ready for viewing. Following showings she would give us feedback. When the showing agent had people who expressed interest she would follow up with them. We were out of the country when the offer came in on our home and Barb made finalizing it easy through technology and also calling us and walking through any questions we had. She was always available. We did go through some challenging times as we got closer to the closing date but Barb was patient, maintained her composure and professionalism and worked closely with the purchasing agent and our lawyer to see the sale to completion. Through all of this we believe she exceeded our expectations of what a realtor is responsible to do. It was a very difficult market (Feb/March, 2019) and our home sold in under a month.
Barb also found us our forever home. Between my husband on the MLS site, and Barb sending us links to new listings we viewed several homes. We were very specific on having a Rancher, which are very hard to find, and it had to be in a specific area. Barb understood our needs and was focused on finding us the home we wanted.
We cannot give enough praise and thanks to you Barb for your sincere interest to make sure we found our forever home.
