Raving Fans


There needs to be a better saying than "Thank you", as it doesn't do Maggie's expertise justice!

After 3.5+ years of dealing with an uncooperative ex-husband, I have finally sold the matrimonial home that I own with my ex!

I had felt very lost and frustrated dealing with 2 lawyers that got no response or any progress with my ex. I had moved out with promises from my ex of "buying me out" of our home. When that fell through, he stopped all communication with me about the house and either buying me out or selling the home.

It was holding me financially hostage and I was beyond stressed and had no idea what to do.

I decided to reach out to my mortgage rep who referred me to Realtor® Maggie Horsburgh, and what a tremendous referral it was!!!

My first zoom conversation with Maggie was more informative than both lawyers I had tried, and any other person I had spoken to that works in Real Estate!

I found out that she is the ONLY Realtor® in Canada that is certified in Separation & Divorce Real Estate, and it shows!!

She let me know what paperwork needed to be filed in order to get funds released properly on closing day, and other details that a regular Realtor® wouldn't know.

I knew then, that Maggie was the only Realtor® I would use because of the delicate nature of selling a matrimonial home with a separated couple!

My ex FINALLY agreed to sell the house the fall of 2021. I had tried to convince my ex to go with Maggie as a trained neutral Realtor® for both of us, but by no surprise he refused. He and I both used our own Realtor®, so it was a joint listing sale.

The two in-office meetings Maggie and I had with his Realtor® showed it was clear that Maggie was much more knowledgeable about the situation, and it just reconfirmed that I had made the absolute best decision on my Realtor® choice!!

The care she took handling the details with my situation, empathy (a rare trait these days), and respect for me is above and beyond what I expect!

Now with my house being sold, I feel like I can finally move on with my plans and life!!

Freedom is just around the corner and I couldn't be happier!!

Earning Trust During a Pandemic

Maggie was amazing. Being out of town first-time ‘pandemic buyers’ we didn’t know what to expect. Maggie earned our trust quickly. Her experience, personable nature, understanding of client needs, deep market knowledge, and responsive and clear communications was a joy to work with. We couldn’t have found a better real estate agent.

Maggie educated us on the process and gave us all the necessary information to make key decisions confidently. She works with professional and trusted partners and has contacts for every need. It’s obvious that she loves her job and helping clients achieve their goals.

Maggie delivers results and surely can add value to any transaction. She is professional, highly efficient and provides an unparalleled service. If you are looking to buy, build or invest, Maggie is your ‘go to’ – you’ll be in safe hands. We feel blessed to have had the opportunity to work with her and will be back when it comes time to sell. We highly recommend her service and would be delighted to speak to anyone that may have questions about our experience.

From beginning to end, our experience searching for a new home and working with Maggie was beyond amazing! Honest and knowledgeable, looking for a home with Maggie, was like shopping with a friend. Not only does Maggie know the KW area inside and out, but her down to earth personality, practical advice and continued support throughout the process was invaluable. We’ll definitely be reaching out to Maggie again if we ever sell!

If you are looking to hire a regular Realtor® , DO NOT hire Maggie.

"To put my story in the right perspective, I will share some facts:

Together we viewed over 135 houses within 6 months in 6 different cities.

I hired Maggie after a bad experience with a previous agent, and since day one Maggie showed an amazing level of understanding of my situation and my family's objectives. She is not only a professional and straight shooter, but she possesses an extraordinary comprehension of houses and the housing market, which made my journey an educated one.

Despite the fact that it took us 6 months of weekly hustling together, Maggie never pressured me or tried to convince me to buy a house. In fact, she even refused to let me buy one because it was not the right fit for my family -- and she was right.

For the last month of our search, I insisted that she drive every weekend to St.Catharines, 1.5 hours away from where she resides, because I only trusted her judgment. We finally landed a great house - exactly what I had in mind and what I was looking for.

Maggie was not only a well-rounded Realtor® for me, she is now a member of the family."

Established GTA Realtor Never Hesitates to Refer to Maggie

“It may be unusual for one Realtor to endorse another but I am very pleased to do so in respect to providing a testimonial for Maggie. As a long-established Toronto Realtor I have had various clients who wished to relocate to Kitchener-Waterloo and local areas. I have referred Maggie multiple times and in each case, not only was she successful in finding their new home but in each case, they made a new friend. Maggie is not just about the business of real estate. She truly cares about people and listens to their needs. She always puts her clients first and it shows in her successful career. She never has to worry about seeing someone in the aisle of a grocery store and having to avoid them, that is just not her. Instead, she would give them a big smile, a hug (pre-Covid) and ask about them and their families. She is a small town lady by roots and that dominates her personality. Many agents over the years have asked me who to refer KW bound buyers and in each case I have given them Maggie’s contact information without hesitation and in return I have had great feedback. We, as Realtors are large in numbers but true caring professionals in our field are a special breed and Maggie is one of the special ones. Given without hesitation,

“Recently I had the pleasure of working with Maggie with a referral client. Maggie was an absolute professional to deal with – friendly, informative, supportive and helpful. Maggie went out of her way to ensure that everything went smoothly and we ended up with a very happy client. I am looking forward to working with Maggie again, she is quite simply the best!”

“Having wonderful and trusted referral sources in place throughout Ontario is something that Realtors® do to assist their clients in finding or selling property. In the Tri-Cities are of Southern Ontario, I can always count on and trust the services of Maggie. Just recently I sent a “Seller” client to her for the Kitchener area. Her professionalism, character and enthusiasm was a wonderful fit. She got the job done in no time, and my client was grateful for my referral and extremely happy with the transaction”.

“At first I was skeptical of the value that a Buyer’s Agent like Maggie could add to any deal. All I thought about was the commission I’d be losing. I wanted to keep everything, that’s why I went with ComFree. My house tour with Maggie and her client was the most enjoyable one I’d given. For once I didn’t feel like I was starting from scratch with the potential buyer. I could see the trust she established with her client. Maggie allayed all suspicion with clear and authoritative answers. Minor problems stayed minor problems – not deal-breakers. Bottom line: Maggie made it happen. She takes pride in the service she provides. Her high-energy, light-hearted approach fueled the momentum of the deal. She speaks well and listens better. She provided the buyer and myself with a legitimate and valuable service. I could not have done it without her!”

Starting a new life after divorce is always difficult. Discovering your independence, making decisions without a partner to run things by, standing on your own while only having your own income to depend on. Sounds exciting and frightening all at the same time.

My client was breaking out and the next step was to find a home….her home. Determined to do this one her own, without relying on the help of family or friends, she started this quest of independence. After spending time driving by home after home and checking out every safe and established neighourhood, her eyes beheld the dream!

Quaint in size, a Craftsman style 1940’s, lovingly updated while maintaining the integrity of this vintage period, she fell in love. Tons of charm and character, a park-like backyard with lilacs, forsythias and a prize-winning magnolia tree.

Her eyes lit up at the front door, growing bigger and bigger as we walked around the rooms. A detailed woman, she scratched down notes (some mentally) of all the practical things she needed to factor. As we exited through the front door, she knew this would be the beginning of her fresh start.

When I called her with the news that she got the house, and she thanked me a dozen times. Her voice was shaky and emotional. “Living here will change your life” was in the real estate ad, and she knew that it would. Congrats on your fresh start!

“I wanted to take this opportunity to express my gratitude for all your assistance with one of my best clients and friend. Your knowledge and attention to details was invaluable for the sale/and purchasing of her home and from the selection, offer, and closing processes for her as well. Since I worked in the Greater Toronto Area, I wanted to find the best Realtor® in the Kitchener/Waterloo area. You and your team were a tremendous advantage to my client and we are thankful to have worked with you. Thanks so much!”

“When we decided to move to Kitchener-Waterloo for work, we didn’t know anyone. Finding a Realtor we could trust was going to be key to making our move a success. Thankfully, we found Maggie. She helped us learn about neighborhoods and schools, before finding us the perfect home at an amazing price. We have sent her numerous referrals of friends and colleagues over the years and have always been so happy with the way they were treated. When we adopted our second child, the house just didn’t work so well for us anymore. We knew just who to call for the “renovate or sell” discussion! Maggie again gave us great advice, put us in contact with a fantastic reno team, and even brought us dinner while the construction was happening! In a few years, when it is time to sell again, we know exactly who we will be calling. Maggie is the only Realtor you will ever need!”
Nick and Josh


”Maggie helped us find an ideal property for our business two years ago and recently sold our family home for well above asking price. A veteran Realtor®, Maggie’s knowledge and experience inspire trust and confidence in the buying and selling process. Her energetic friendly personality, not to mention quick response time to all of our inquiries, made her an absolute pleasure to work with.”
Phil and Suzanne Morgan


“My husband and I have worked with Maggie numerous times. She goes above and beyond and is thorough. She listens and makes sure you purchase your home, not just a house! Maggie goes above and beyond as an agent. She was available whenever and wherever we needed her. She is professional and extremely knowledgeable and is a fully capable negotiator. Her understanding of the local housing market sets her apart from other agents. She has a heart and understands that selling can be emotional for some, but she is tough when it comes to the purchase negotiations. I would not hesitate to recommend Maggie to anybody who is looking for an agent.”

Maryann was in a bind. After an unsuccessful marriage, and years of trying to manage on her own, she was becoming overwhelmed with keeping up with the bills and the maintenance of her home. “The problem I was having (and needed to be solved) was that I stopped enjoying my house like I used to when I first bought it.”

Maryann knew it was time to sell and was referred to Maggie by someone she trusted. “She came very highly recommended, and when I met her, I could see why. I learned from working with her that I can do anything I put my mind to. The happiest thing I found was that she was so helpful and that she listened without judgement."

Maryann’s house went on the market on a Friday, received 12 offers, and was sold firm by Tuesday evening. The best news? The success of this sale means that she gets to start a new chapter in her life.

“I will definitely recommend Maggie to everyone that requires any of her many services. Her honesty is what makes her stand out from others. I wouldn't change anything about how she did her job and the awesome person that she is.”
Kitchener Resident


“Whether she has represented us as a buyer or a seller, Maggie has time and again proven her unquestionable value: first in her professional expertise, but no less importantly in her passionate dedication to her clients. Buying investment properties is different than buying a home, and Maggie understands that completely. Whether investigating a zoning classification or suggesting a home inspection, Maggie comes prepared. There are dozens of easy-to-forget details and Maggie’s thoroughness in getting us the information we need is invaluable. Most importantly, she knows the importance of helping her clients stay level-headed throughout a stressful process. While it’s her knowledge and thoroughness that makes us confident, there is one things above all others that gives her clients peace of mind, and that is her integrity. I can’t count the number of times Maggie has made us feel better informed by her honesty, and she does all this while bringing incredible enthusiasm to the experience. In short, we can’t imagine buying or selling without her!”
