Testimonials

"Buying a house is the largest purchase of most people's lives. The process is daunting and often unguided and misinformed. When we hired Meggi Byers all that unease disappeared. Not only is Meggi knowledgeable, intelligent, and savvy- she is warm and kind. She is understanding and always available..."

Welcome to this very special home with so much to offer. No need for a cottage, you can escape daily stresses in your own home. City living at its best.

In words of the Sellers:
" I will fondly remember being surrounded by various seasonal highlights: from the white flowering of the front yard apple tree and the sweet smell of lilac trees, to watching the swans swimming by on the river, from the colourful changing of the leaves in the fall to the witnessing of the freezing and thawing of the river announcing the changing of seasons. The most magical moments are the peaceful mornings after a snowfall and seeing the thick snowcaps on the numerous trees surrounding the house or witnessing stunning sunrises."
