Testimonials

We contracted with Gloria and Carl to sell our family cottage last fall and were extremely pleased with the whole process. Gloria and Carl stayed in touch constantly, did a lot of great marketing and because we are residents of the United States also helped get us legal and accounting help dealing with those complicated tax laws. Carl even dd the appraisal work Revenue Canada needed. They made a multi-step process as smooth as possible. They were easy to contact, responded quickly and even was ready to chat when we were feeling sad. – Dave & Elaine

Our family has owned a cottage resort, a home and a separate cottage in Peterborough County since the 1940’s and reluctantly last year it became a priority to sell. We interviewed different brokers and chose to list with Ball Real Estate. Carl, his wife Gloria and his co-listing agent Elda worked tirelessly with a wonderful marketing plan and got the job done in exactly the way they promised they would. The process was smooth worry free and flawless. All three of the properties sold and closed within a timeframe we were absolutely thrilled with. They followed through on everything they had told us they would do and made sure it was done in a timely manner. My parents and I are out of country which made it extremely important that our realtors looked after things for us, they did an excellent job. It was only necessary for me to make the first initial trip to interview realtors. Carl and Elda communicated with me every step of the way which even included conference calls with my parents when necessary. They were very professional and very timely. – Deanna

Carl and Gloria listed our cottage and worked diligently to assist us with our sale and also the purchase of our dream property, where we will build our forever cottage. They marketed our property very well through several channels. They are tenacious, knowledgeable, experienced, easy to work with and extremely available. This latest transaction was #6 and #7 with Carl and Gloria, they always make it happen and we are grateful. They made our dream come true! – Jim & Natalie

We listed our long time family cottage with Gloria and Carl and were very well looked after. The marketing was excellent they put us in contact with a good lawyer and accountant to help with Revenue Canada’s tax laws that apply to non-resident sellers including doing the respective different year valuations that were required and we got a sale that met our expectations. This could have been a problematic process but Carl and Gloria stayed in touch and helped right thru from start to finish. – Walter

Carl we wanted to say a sincere thanks for selling our island cottage . As you know we had been approached privately by a buyer and tried to negotiate a fair priced sale but it just did not seem possible. You helped us establish what fair market value might be and you even spoke to those private buyers on our behalf but it was not to be. Your marketing kicked in and we got a sale price extremely close to your estimate plus you recommended a lawyer and accountant to close the deal and work with Revenue Canada regarding the capital gains tax calculation. Our accountant really appreciated your tax date valuation . We could not have done it without you! – Dan and Nancy.

Very helpful & knowledgeable agents. Eased the stress that came from being a first time home buyer. Would recommend to anyone in search of their perfect getaway.

We love Carl & Gloria they are so personable and straight up which was the best. They are easy to get ahold of and looked after our goal and price point. We couldn’t be happier with their excellent service. Excellent people.

Our overall experience was really good. We were kept fully informed at all times as to the goings on with the sale of our cottage. All calls & questions were answered promptly and professionally. Carl actually walked over the frozen lake with the building inspector to speed up the process at the request of our buyer. He always displayed knowledge, expertise, patience and suggestions and was always pleasant to talk to. Thank you Carl & Gloria – we appreciate your help!!

Gloria & Carl have a wealth of experience to offer regarding the sale of cottage/home properties on Belmont Lake. They realize you must advertise via several medias to draw in potential customers to achieve your best results. For these reasons we chose Carl & Gloria over a variety of other agents to sell for us. Thank you again – we will refer you to our neighbours & friends.

Carl was helpful, responded quickly and was understanding of our needs. He was familiar with the area, explained/answered all of our queries, and very professional.

Carl kept in constant touch with me. Was very prompt at keeping appointments. Overall I was very satisfied with his service at selling the property.

Hi Praise for Gloria & Carl – due to a serious health issue I found myself “laid up” in Calgary for a large portion of the listing period.

Carl & Gloria kept me advised throughout the process. They helped to ease my mind as I recovered from my surgery. Thanks again!

First Class All the Way!
