FINALLY MOVING ONThere 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 PandemicMaggie 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.
IT FEELS LIKE SHOPPING WITH A FRIENDFrom 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."
