Working with Ian has really transformed my experience searching for a home! After 3 major relocations (Edmonton, Calgary, Saskatoon, and now Toronto) in a span of less than 4 years, I've had our fair share of working with real estate agents. I've never worked with a more genuine guy ready to fight for what's best for his clients. He's truly passionate about his work and goes above and beyond. He really listens to us and makes the effort to build a relationship with us resulting in him being able to know exactly what we're searching for in our dream home. I've never trusted a realtor like I do Ian. He's a hard worker, persistent, professional, trustworthy and sympathetic. He's prompt with his replies, organized and his attention to detail is phenomenal! Ian is extremely knowledgeable about the housing market and an expert in his field. I can't praise Ian enough and highly recommend him for all your real estate needs!!

We could not have found a more phenomenal agent than Ian Luz!! He was absolutely incredible from start to finish and helped us find our dream home! He made sure he understood what we were looking for and knew us so well that he could automatically gauge if a home was going to be a fit for us at each viewing! We were so impressed by his professionalism, his ability to get things done quickly, and flexibility. We probably saw him almost every day for a few weeks and he was always able to get us into a listing right away! He would look out for listings for us and would even take the initiative to book us the viewing before we got back to him! He's patient, very enthusiastic, and an all around incredible guy! We loved how he fights for his clients best interests and his honesty. We are so thankful for everything that he has done for us and truly appreciate his over and above efforts! We could not recommend a better agent! Go with Ian- you won't be disappointed!

Wish I found Paula Dorion and the Johnson Team sooner. We would not have stressed as much about finding a new home! It's the biggest purchase that we'll make in our lives and Paula always focused on our best interest. What sets Paula Dorion and Team Johnson apart is that they are personal, caring and professional. They did a great job at helping us buy our home and sell our condo. Paula always had time for us and even after the transactions! She still drops us a line to see how we are doing. With Paula Dorion and Team Johnson, you definitely would be in good hands. WOW! If I ever decide to do another move, no question it will be with Paula. Kudos to being a different kind of agent.

My wife and I were looking for a new home. We weren’t having any luck finding a home even after a couple of months of searching. Feeling frustrated and debunked, we felt as though we were never going to find a home anytime soon. Because we weren’t working with a realtor, we were contemplating on hiring one but that is when we met PAULA DORION. We were going through our rounds on a Sunday trying to see as many houses as we could during the 2pm-4pm window. After rushing through 4 houses, we had only 15 minutes left but decided to go to one last open house not expecting much. As we entered the house, we were greeted warmly by Paula. She told us to take our time and to ask her any questions if we had any. She did not probe to see whether we had an agent and she did not try to tell us all about how great the house was. In fact, she said nothing! She let the house speak for itself. After going through the house, there was a moment when my wife and I looked at each other and said, “This is the one”! We decided to put in an offer but had a few questions about the house. Paula answered all the questions that we had without looking at the time even once. She took the time to really listen to us and put us both at ease without even knowing at that point that I would place a bid. It being well past 4pm, we decided to let her know that we wanted this to be our home. We asked Paula to represent us but for this offer only which she gladly accepted without any fuss. I did not want to retain an agent at that time. My wife and I personally know many real estate agents so we were keeping our options open. By 6pm that evening, we were sent the papers to sign electronically and by 7pm, we were on our way to meet Paula. It was about 7:30pm that Paula came out of the building where we were to meet with a “thumbs up” and a huge smile! Our offer was accepted and we had a new home! Many of you may say that maybe Paula Dorion was the lucky one! I know that my wife and I are truly blessed to have found Paula. Her enthusiasm, her calm, her honest and her dedication in that one transaction made our decision to have her sell our condo, easy. We hope that people don’t leave it to chance like we did to meet this wonderful lady. We made an appointment to meet with Liz Johnson and Paula (Team Johnson/ReMax Professionals) a few days later to go over the sale of our condo. They came prepared and they certainly did their homework. Again, Liz and Paula put us at ease right away. They were confident in their approach, not making any promises while making us feel like we were in good hands. Team Johnson staged our condo and in just one week, we had an offer. Paula was instrumental in helping us get the maximum amount of money by giving us advice while negotiating with the buyer’s agent. We got the deal signed and done that same night! Paula genuinely cares about people and that is what separates her from the rest of the pack. Of course there are duties that a Real Estate agent needs to do for their customers but Paula is what a real estate agent should be. Paula always had time to speak to us without ever making us feel like she was too busy for our petty questions. Even after our transactions, Paula takes the time to call us to see how we are doing – that is going above and beyond in my books. Sorry for the long story and believe me, I can go on and on. Paula Dorion has made a connection with my wife and I. Kudos to Paula Dorion and Team Johnson for the greatest experience for my greatest purchase. I could not be happier for the effort put forth by them. Other realtors have much to learn about true Professionalism! Thank you Paula! From Frank & Stella

"Normally selling a house is a stressful experience filled with constant second guessing of, "Did we price it right? Did we put it on the market at the right time?" From the initial meeting with Liz (who was completely prepared), through the staging, through the waiting to hear how the open houses went, we were impressed with the calls returned immediately, the willingness to listen to our suggestions and all the follow ups. This experience in the end turned out to be actually fun. Without hesitation, we would recommend Liz and her team to anyone selling their home who wants honest feedback and someone who puts even more effort in AFTER she has the listing! Thanks Liz for a great job!"

By: JIM F.

"Liz and The Team did a great job in making us very comfortable and did their best to reduce the stress involved in selling our home. They treated us with the utmost professionalism and yet made us feel like a family member. The effort provided after the sale was to say the least unexpected, but greatly appreciated."

By: JOE B.

"Thank you for making the first and only time my elderly parents will sell a house a very easy experience. Your professionalism, sensitivity and patience really helped to make what could have been a traumatic experience, very enjoyable. Your free staging service made all the difference in helping to sell their house in 5 days at a price over listing. I would recommend your services to any one looking for a real estate team that provides excellent personal service."

We knew that we made the right choice in choosing Angie Johnson as our realtor. We decided to us her services to help us buy a new home and sell our existing one. We found Angie to be knowledgeable about the real estate market and she answered our questions and addressed our concerns with patience. Angie, along with The Johnson Team, provided many services - a home stager, a photographer and a home inspector, to help us prepare our home for sale. Their attention to details was impressive. The home we bought more than met our wishlist. And our home that we needed to sell, sold quickly and commanded a very good price. It was a pleasure working with Angie and The Johnson Team. We would highly recommend them to anyone buying and or selling a home.

"If you are planning to sell or buy a house or condo, you will need a reliable, hard-working, disciplined and efficient real estate agent who will meet your expectations. My husband and I highly recommend Rita Moore of The Johnson Team. Rita was referred to us by a close friend whose house Rita sold in less than a week at over the list price. Soon after Rita helped my friend find a suitable condo in the same area. Recently when my husband and I downsized from a home we had lived in for 47 years, we chose Rita Moore as our agent. Working with her team she promptly prepared a very descriptive brochure of the interior and exterior of our house, beautifully photographed. The listing appeared on the Multiple Listing website and hard copies were available for prospective buyers to peruse after viewing the property. Rita wisely suggested an early date for offer submissions to encourage prospective buyers to view the property during the allotted time span. Our beloved home sold at a very favourable price with an ideal closing date and we were delighted. The condo Rita found for us soon after perfectly suits our needs and we have nicely adjusted to our new environment. Rita Moore is very well informed about the fluctuating real estate market. Her tireless dedication to her clients is admirable and her sunny disposition is a welcome plus."

"Being first time home buyers, Mark Jones made the experience easy and enjoyable. He was very personable and reassuring along our journey. Mark was more than willing to accommodate all our needs and even drove us to see every house. He was even willing to come last minute to bring us to see properties as soon as we saw them available. Mark gave us great advise during the negotiations and we ultimately got the house we wanted the same day! Our experience using Re/Max Professionals and The Johnson Team has been remarkable. It was also a wonderful surprise to receive a gift basket for ourselves and our son upon moving in. Thank you for all your help and support with purchasing our first home!"

By: INGRID M.

"Thanks Liz for representing me in the sale of my home. Your guidance made the entire process easy and understandable. You were professional and patient through the offer presentations and your input was invaluable! I would not hesitate to recommend your services and I look forward to dealing with you in the future. "

By: BELLA AND RAY H.

"Liz and Jeff are the only agents our family will use. It all started three years ago when Jeff helped me look at homes for our daughter and her family relocating from BC. He went out with me for days and then took them to see homes. The result was they found a wonderful home for their family. Since then we have listed our condo with Liz, and Jeff has worked with us to find our new home. These are two real estate agents who work hard for their clients, stay in touch, and approach their work with enthusiasm. Their level of integrity and dedication cannot be matched!"

By: INGA J.

"Our real-estate agent, Theresa Keates was incredibly supportive and patient in helping us find our first home. We couldn't be happier with our selection and her professional and prompt service."

By: PAULA D.

"Liz helped sell our home quickly, and not only is Liz professional and knowledgeable - she's fun! Liz has a great breadth of business expertise, and is very familiar with the Alderwood community. I value my time with Liz, and appreciate the time she spent with my family."

By: KEVIN & CANDICE C.

"Liz and Jeff were and still are a great team. They sold our house and made sure we found one that we wanted and didn't quit until we were satisfied. They took us around week after week until they found the right house for us. They went that extra mile to make sure we got that house we wanted. I would refer them to all our friends and family without thinking twice!"

By: WAYNE & LYNN L.

"We found the Johnson's to be very personable, professional and forthright in all the dealings we had with them. From the initial evaluation of our home to the follow-ups after we accepted the offer to purchase from the new owners. We wouldn't hesitate to call upon the Johnson Team in the future should we decide to make another move!"

By: TRISH B.

"Liz is a true professional: knowledgable, courteous, kind. Her committment to selling our home was obvious and appreciated. Thank you Liz!"

By: RALPH S.

"Liz and Jeff are comsummate professionals . They represented us well, listened to our needs and dilemas. They were always approachable, never impatient and extremely understanding of our situation. They know their business inside and out, and represent their clients with pride and true integrity. We have used them twice now and would not hesitate to use them again, and we highly recomment them. They are not just realtors, they have become friends who care! These people are honest and completely trustworthy. They are a joy to work with! The world is a better place for having these folks in it. Do you want to sell your property? Then listen to them! (they know what they are talking about!) Even if you don't agree with some of their ideas, but really listen to what they have to say. You hired them for their knowledge, advice and experience - so listen and use it!"

By: BERT S.

"We experienced prompt and efficient service from the very first day we made the call about the sale of my dad’s home. They were patient with us; they listened to all the details and answered all questions we had about the sale. They’re a realistic and down to earth team who worked with us to stage the home. We are truly grateful and appreciate their professionalism in their work. They took the time to do the ground work like the open house and the advertising. We were blown away when the home was sold in just eleven days! We will happily recommend any of our friends and family to them.”

By: LESLEY S.

"Liz Johnson helped us conclude the sale of our home with professionalism, and friendly and reassuring presence throughout the process and wonderful advice. We were very impressed with her comprehensive marketing approach cross a variety of media. The photographer she recommended did a wonderful series of photos that displayed our home beautifully. We found that the office staff in general and Elice in particular, were excellent at monitoring activity on the property & keeping us advised of viewings and feedback. From our first meetings with Liz through to the post-sale special and unexpected considerations, Liz Johnson has made what could be a very stressful experience, much easier. We would recommend Liz and her team of assistants in the most high manner possible."

By: BOBBI & MICHAEL O.

"Liz went above and beyond our expectations to sell our condo and find us a new place to live in the hot GTA market. If Liz was unavailable Jeff was there to fill in seamlessly. Their dedication, hard work and professionalism was evident from the beginning and greatly appreciated. Having worked with many realtors in the past Liz and Jeff Johnson are second to none! Thanks again for all you've done for us."

" .... you don't just sell homes, you help people!"

By: GEORGE & MAVIS C.

"The sale of our home and downsizing to another was a very emotional and somewhat frightening process. Liz & Jeff Johnson calmed my nerves and won over my skeptical husband. The process was relatively smooth and swift, remarkable considering the hot market in April and early May. We are very grateful for all their help...We are settling into our new home and have already recommended Liz and Jeff to our family and friends."

By: GERRY & THERESA D.

"Back in 2002, Jeff was our agent and helped us purchase our first starter home. The experience was pleasant and the service was excellent thereby making our first big purchase a smooth one. Not only that, Jeff appreciates us every year even after the business was done. We sought his services again this year as we bought our second home as the family had grown. As expected the purchase and moving into our second home was smooth. For the sale of our first starter home, Liz acted as our agent. We were first time sellers and Liz made the experience less stressful as she was very attentive to our needs and requirements. She had a professional stager and photographer and marketed our home excellently that our home was sold as quickly as it was put up on the market. Thank you to this dynamic husband and wife team!"

By: KILBY & MARIE P.

"It is with great pleasure that I am able to write this testimonial to tell you how wonderful both Liz & Jeff Johnson have been throughout this entire experience....Both have shown so much patience, compassion and understanding to help us find our ideal home...Their negotiating skills, their expertise in pulling up comparables and having the knowledge in the areas was of tremendous value. They made us feel like they took our wants and needs and somehow made it part of their own, and yes, they found us the perfect home. They stayed within our price range, got us the location and had our "backs" at all times...They sent us these beautiful "Moving Cards" so we could send to our families/friends. They went over and beyond. They have brought us so much happiness to our lives and for this I say "Thank You"."

By: ZEKE & MIRJANA S.

Liz & Jeff are a very pleasant couple who listened carefully to our needs and acted accordingly. They kept us updated with market statistics, they provided us with useful information before the 'sale' and were available for assistance after the 'sale'. Their skills were very noticeable during negotiations. As a team they are very powerful and especially with the support from their office assistant. We have interviewed many agents for the sale of our home and decided on Jeff for he was natural and real. He did not use pressure to get my business. I would use Liz and Jeff again for my real estate needs. Thanks Liz and Jeff and the team behind them.

By: DAVE & KATY T.

"Liz is a true professional. We had no worries selling our property. Good research beforehand with finding comparables really helped our negotiating power. I liked how Liz wasn't pushy about us putting the property on the market. She was sensitive to our timeline - not always the case with other realtors! If we ever move back to Toronto, we will look Liz and Jeff up. Thanks again for everything...!"

By: ANDREW & LINDSEY J

"It was great working with both of you. We always felt very comfortable throughout the whole home buying experience. We never felt pressured or rushed, and it really seemed as through you would take us out as many times as we needed to look at houses and never got frustrated with us! The wealth of knowledge that you both have regarding different areas of the city is amazing, and you pointed out many important things that we had never even considered. The level of customer service you provided was beyond our expectations and we will not hesitate to recommend you to our family and friends (in fact, we already have)!"

By: JACK G

"I have used the services of Jeff and Liz Johnson over the past ten years and found them to provide superb customer service. They are extremely personable and knowledgeable in real estate transactions. I have referred several family and friends over the years who were also extremely satisfied with them. Jeff and Liz provide honest and reliable advice which helps a buyer or seller make the right decision. Having been both a buyer and seller, I have benefited from their expertise. They are true models for other realtors to follow and I look forward to continue using their services for future real estate transactions."

By: TRISH & CHRIS B.

"Liz was very reassuring and knowledgable about every aspect of our move. With our chaotic lives, it was nice to know that everything about our move was under Liz's guidance and more than capable hands. Liz had our home sold in 2 days!"

By: BOB & VICKI M.

"No one could receive better service. Liz and Jeff made the sale and preparation for the move easy. They covered all areas of concern for someone who had not moved in 30 years!!! I would recommend Liz and Jeff to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling a home."

By: JENNIFER

"As first time home buyers, there was a lot about the process that we did not really understand. Jeff and Liz Johnson took the time to walk us through every aspect of the process with patience and helped us make informed decisions. Their experience and knowledge made us both feel comfortable that we were in good hands."

By: MARK & STEPHANIE F.

"Jeff and Liz have patiently worked with us for the better part of a year to help us find our next home. We looked to them for their experience in the area we were looking and they came highly recommended. Jeff really went to work for us through the negotiation stage and got us the house for our price. Thanks for your hardwork and dedication!"

By: ANNE C.

"Liz, you were very helpful and resourceful to us throughout the whole transaction. You were professional and convincing during the closing negotiations with the other Broker. Thank you for your service!"

By: JEFF C.

"After working with another broker (and losing a home we thought was "the one") we switched to Jeff and Liz, and went from disaster to smashing success. Their years of experience and providing a service-oriented approach was immediately apparent in their rapid communication, incredible depth of knowledge, availability and professional service. More than once, Jeff Johnson sacrificed his own interests (in terms of making a quick, easy sale) by steering us away from properties which would not have suited our future family needs. Ultimately, we found our dream home and won out in multiple-offer situation thanks to Jeff's experience in competitive situations. We have found out that real estate agents are NOT created equal. Our home is our most important financial asset so we feel very fortunate that we were able to work with the best real estate team in the GTA - Jeff an Liz Johnson."

By: ALBERTA S

Liz, you always go "the extra mile" for your clients.

By: MARILYN V.

"I wanted to thank you and Jeff for all your hard work in helping us sell our old home (which I still drive by once in awhile) and getting the home of our dreams. Not only that, I appreciate your help after the sale with the hot water, paint and everything else. It wasn't necessary, but you did it anyway, which is consistent with how professionally you handled everything throughout. I will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking for a real estate agent."

By: CHARLENE V.

"When we started planning the sale of our home we actually considered going WITHOUT an agent or using a discount broker. Now that we have successfuly sold our home with Liz and Jeff, we realize how much time, stress and money we have saved ourselves by working with such a dedicated, service-oriented team of professionals. From the moment we met until the deal was closed we felt fully and completely supported by experts who truly had our best interests at heart. Their strategy, support, communication, availability, provision of extra services and overall performance were flawless. We have seen other homes in our area languish on the market or sell under-value. Our home sold like clockwork in one week for more than any other comparable home in the history of our neighbourhood. Most importantly throughout the process we always felt that Liz and Jeff truly cared about our situation and did everything in their power to make the experience of selling our home a successful one. If you work with Liz and Jeff you will have a positive experience...take our word for it."

By: MONIKA P.

"Liz did a wonderful job walking me through the process of selling my home, such that it was done with grace and ease. I would highly recommend working with her to anyone."

By: Ann Smith

Hi, just a note to say thanks for all you have done for us throughout this process. As first time buyers, we had a lot of unanswered questions regarding the purchase of our home. Thank you for providing the answers to many of these and giving us informed advice on the homes that we visited!
