"This is a long overdue (3months) and heartfelt letter of appreciation for your efficient and top-notch Professional yet personable service on finding us a beautiful abode in Mississauga to lease. You were so classy and calm during this stressful time for us as it was a long distance move and another Realtor wasted two months of our time prior to being referred to amazing you! We've already happily referred a couple people to you in our first three months here and look forward to buying our first home through you.
Many thanks again for your authentic help. We really enjoy living in our new location."

“Well, to put it simply, Annette Haberling makes it happen! As a seller, Annette maximized the buyers with her large clientele, excellent presentation including a wonderful virtual tour which lead to my quick sell at an unprecedented price for the neighborhood! As a buyer, Annette capitalized on her market research, understanding my needs and wants and delivering exactly what I asked for! Annette's core strength is how she pays attention to detail and truly understands what her clients needs are. This is what makes her successful and an overall excellent person.”
“When we first met you, we were genuinely pleased with both your honesty and your enthusiasm about helping us find our first home. Any questions that we had were answered promptly and in depth and detail. The majority of the time our questions were answered without even having to be asked! It showed us that we were in good hands and dealing with a Realtor who has done their research on each and every property we were shown. After meeting us the first time, you grasped what our personalities were and what kind of property we were most interested in. In just our second outing we found and bought our ideal starter home. This shows us that you do not want to waste your time or ours by continually showing us places that we would not consider making an offer on. We enjoyed your input from home to home- as it did help us think outside the box. Seeing the home for what it could be, instead of just what it is at the time! We appreciated that you gave us your honest opinion on a property, and did not just try to make a sale. You let us know the ups and downs, and even whether you liked the place yourself! That was refreshing for us, as we do not know too much about the housing market. It was great that you let us go and explore inside the houses ourselves, as it is easy to get nervous with constant hovering! Overall, we contacted you off a recommendation, you helped us find exactly what we were looking for, and would whole-heartedly refer you to family and friends.
Thank you for all your help in finding us our first home!”

"I recommend Annette Haberling to anyone purchasing a home. Writing a testimonial is the least I can do for Annette. She is a caring person who worked long hours for me and I appreciate it to this day. I purchased my first home with Annette and I would definitely ask for her help when I am looking to buy again. Thank u Annette"

"I just wanted to drop you a quick note to officially thank you for all the hard work you did in helping us find our perfect home! You were always there, day or night to answer my questions or to take me to see a prospective home. Getting in touch with you was a breeze as you were always available by phone, E-mail or text. I also appreciated your honest and candid advice about the places we were looking at… That’s really helpful for a first-time home buyer like me, because you have a much better idea of what kind of places are out there, so we really valued your opinion, and you were right! When a house wasn’t right for us, you knew it, before I realized it! J Thanks so much Annette! I won’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone who is looking for a professional, knowledgeable and friendly real estate agent!"
Brian & Tamara Clark
"We were first time home buyers and didn't really know much about buying a home. Annette made everything so easy for us, she was very knowledgeable on all aspects of real estate and was able to locate the perfect home for us very quickly. Annette was very professional and efficient and definitely went above and beyond for us. We couldn't be happier with our new home and we highly recommend her to all our friends and family."
Courtney and Keith Randell

"I just wanted to let you know that the service you provided me in regards to purchasing my first condo was beyond exceptional! I’m well aware that I’m not the easiest person to work with considering my detail oriented nature, but you were able to make me feel comfortable and you even went into great detail with me! By the time we finished looking at the first few condo’s, I was confident that you could pretty much pick out something I love on my behalf! Your ability to recall all my likes and dislikes along with your patience were greatly appreciated by me and my family and I’m happy to hear that the people I referred to you were also pleased! Keep up the great work! You’re one of a kind! Can’t wait to work with you on my next purchase! And I would like to extend a special thank you from mom! You did an amazing job of explaining everything to her slowly and precisely considering the language barrier! Thanks"
"Time is a precious thing. Thank you for putting your valuable time into Angele and my dream home. Trust is the most important word to us in relationships and we feel that is what you give us!! We look forward to you helping us realize our dreams in the future!"
"Thank you for the outstanding service and devotion you have shown us with our needs and prospects."
"Only a few months ago owning a home was a distant idea, something I wanted but didn't really believe would ever happen. I thought that with my salary the only thing I could afford would be a tiny condo in a sketchy neighborhood and that I'd have to live pay cheque to pay cheque to pay for it. I talked to Annette about it, and a few months later, I'm the proud owner of a beautiful condo! Being a first time buyer, I had no idea what I was doing but Annette was there for me every step of the way and made it really easy. She was always available to me and worked relentlessly to make sure everything would go smoothly and that it would be a good experience for me. She paid close attention when I explained what I was looking for and because of that it only took two weeks to find the perfect place for me! Annette loves what she does and takes great pride in her work. It's not just a job to her, it's an opportunity to help people find a place to call home. She cares and it shows. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to my family and friends!"
"Annette was a miracle for my brother and I. Our father had left us his house when he passed away and after 2 years we realized it was too much to handle. I recently had a baby and wanted my own privacy for my little family. My brother was stuck in limbo wanting to sell, but also not sure what to do. We were introduced to Annette through a family member and we couldn’t be happier. Annette took the time to explain all our options, get our house ready to be sold, and sold it in a week for us. She was able to get us more than our asking price with professionalism, efficiency, and dedication. Annette always made herself available if we had a question, concern or even when we needed help cleaning up the house properly. When my little family decides to buy a house in the future, I won’t even consider anyone else. She will be highly recommended to family and friends. I can’t even begin to put into words how amazing Annette is. She knows what she is doing and does it extremely well. On behalf of my brother Andrew, Fiancé Shawn, little Memphis and I we thank you for all your hard work and dedication."
"Annette and her team are a joy to work with. She consistently kept me informed every step of the way during the entire process of the sale of my home and was always quick to respond to any questions that I had. I have no doubt that her professionalism and extensive knowledge of the market is what resulting is our getting top dollar for my home. Not to mention a very smooth process which required minimal time and effort on my part. I highly recommend Annette and her team to anyone and will most certainly work with her again for all my future real estate needs."
"Our journey began with William of the Annette Vance Team around mid September 2016. At this time, we were looking to rent a property in a very specific location. We had strong criteria that we needed to satisfy in terms of what we were looking for. When we met William, there was an instant connection. He was very attentive, listened and understood what we were looking for and was very professional yet showed a human side that was very refreshing. We all understand at the end of the day, Real estate is a business… but William never treated us like a transaction, but like family from the get go. He was exceptional at articulating what we wanted and completely understood our needs. For a week, William booked us for every showing we asked and took us around tirelessly. After a week of looking for rentals, we had decided that it would make more financial sense to actually purchase a home. It must have been 10pm at night on a Thursday that I called William and he answered his phone, cheerful as always and told him of our new found decision. That same night William had updated our Collab search to best find homes that suited our requirements. As we approach the fall season, we couldn’t be happier to say that William found us the PERFECT home for us and our family. What we truly want to express is the integrity, compassion, empathy and overall ethic that William has as an individual and as an Agent. He gave us hope when we didn’t have any, and the constant smile on his face, created a bond that supersedes a business relationship. We were able to reach out to him no matter what time of day and he was more than friendly and always professional in mitigating any of our concerns. William, you turned our dreams into a reality. Thank you sincerely for all you have done and we know will continue to do, for us and all your clients alike."

"Where to begin?!?! A month ago I was browsing through properties with no real place and no confidence in what I was doing or what I was even looking at. I thought it would be at least another two years before I would ever be able to afford left alone purchase property. After our meeting you gave me so much courage and confidence to believe in myself that I was in fact ready to purchase and able to move into a new chapter in my life. Now I am officially a homeower! You handled my first experience with such ease that I never even had a chance to worry or second guess what I was doing. You supported me through the entire process, answered my million and one questions without hesitation and helped to find me literally the perfect place! I am so happy that I had you throughout this entire experience because I couldn’t imagine going through this process with anyone else. Thank you for showing me a side of myself I didn’t know existed and helping me to branch out into not only a home owner but a strong, confident and independent woman who can do it on her own! I can't wait for property #2... so be prepared to be hearing from me again! Thank youuuuuu! !"
“I’d like to share my experience when I retained Annette Vance to be my realtor. This was the first time I had ever sold a house, so I had no idea what to expect. It was obvious right from the start that Annette was very knowledgeable and had a great understanding of the market and my area. She provided me with all the information I needed and answered every question I had with straight-forward answers and explained everything in great detail. Any issues I had, she immediately dealt with them which was extremely helpful given that it was a very stressful time. The day my house was sold, Annette conducted herself in a very professional yet friendly way which provided for a comfortable and smooth discussion between parties. When it was all said and done, I was beyond thrilled with the results! I can never thank Annette and her team enough for doing such a great job for me. Annette is truly a pleasure to work with and I hope to keep in touch with her in the future. I would highly recommend Annette to my friends and family.”
"This might not be eloquent enough to go on your website, but it is flowing from the heart. We are writing to express our heartfelt gratitude for all that you’ve done for us during our house search this summer. We gave you a very challenging task in terms of our budget and time limitations, yet you delivered. You made the long-distance house-hunt, that was no less than 3 provinces away, seem like a no big deal at all – as if it’s normal to be shopping for the biggest purchase of our lives over FaceTime! Your diligent follow up, your indispensable deep insights, and your genuine care were amazing. Your enthusiasm and energy never phased out, even during disappointments with unsuccessful offers. You kept lifting up our spirit and you kept us going. Your professionalism in dealing with some very challenging sellers’ representatives was phenomenal. We felt you deeply cared about us, and that all that mattered to you was your clients’ satisfaction. You definitely win the trophy for the most dedicated and energetic realtor in the GTA. Managing to book over 11 showings all over the GTA, and go through them in one day during the hot and humid Toronto summer is outstanding, not to mention coming over during your own vacation to personally be with us and accommodate our very tight travel schedule! We don’t think you consider your work “a job”. It is evident that it’s your vocation. You took the time to know us all and to understand our very unique family/work situation. You danced in style to our hectic rhythm, and although we know you have tons of other clients, we felt like we were the most important ones all the time – we are sure that every other client you have feels the same! Thank you so much for everything you’ve done for us. You made the move from Halifax to Toronto so much more pleasant. We are very happily settled in our new home here in Toronto.

“… I have said so many great things about “Jason’s wife”, this is how my family knows you ;) Still can’t believe how you coordinated the lease so quickly!... “
“Being first time buyers and having recently had a baby, we were a little hesitant and nervous dipping our feet into the home buyers’ market. Working with Annette and her team to buy our first place however, turned into an easier experience than we ever imagined. Annette was there for us every step of the way- every question, email, call… she was always there to help guide us and answer any and every question we had. She always made time to suit our busy schedule for showings and gave her honest opinions. Her professionalism, attention to detail and hard-working attitude made this whole experience a very positive one. Thank you Annette for “going that extra mile” in helping us find our first place! We can’t wait to buy our next place in a few years and to work with you again!”
