Client Testimonials

“Gillian was my 91 year old father’s real estate broker and sold his condominium in Don Mills. She handled my father’s concerns in a patient and diplomatic way. In many ways she went above and beyond her role as realtor and did everything she could to make the whole process less stressful for my father. She has an outstanding knowledge of the market as well as a perfect balance of professionalism and friendliness. I appreciated the fact that Gillian followed up all verbal conversations with an email to both my father and me, as well as sending us both the daily reports. Since I live an hour away from my father, this helped me keep current with what was happening. When an unusual circumstance arose, she had our best interest in view and was proactive in ensuring that additional paperwork was in place for the sale to go through. I highly recommend her and would use her myself if I lived in Toronto. “

“When it came time to sell our condominium, we were almost paralysed by the prospect of all that needed to be done. That is, until we met Gillian. From our first meeting, we knew that we were in the right hands – Gillian’s positive outlook as well as her professional experience were exactly what we needed. Together we made a plan that was based on our priorities and every time we hit what we thought was a stumbling block, Gillian knew the right professional to help us out with painting, cleaning, moving, etc. The result? We sold with a week for almost 99% of asking. What could have been an agonizing and overwhelming experience was instead a series of manageable tasks executed in a reasonable sequence to get us to our goal. Thank you, Gillian!”

– N.R. and J.K., Don Mills, ON.

“Dear Gillian, we just wanted to touch base to offer a few words of thanks after the sale. It was the best real estate decision we have ever made to call you and ask you to represent us. It was an extremely fast-paced experience, but incredibly calm and focused and beautifully managed. Literally every day–as a result of your morning updates–we knew exactly where we were in the process and there was never a moment that we didn’t feel fully informed and impeccably looked after. The result, of course, was just amazing and much better than we had hoped for. But even if it hadn’t worked out quite as well, we would have been delighted still.

Many thanks Gillian, we now know where to turn for any of our future real estate needs.

Best wishes”

“Gillian provided service above and beyond. She took us through the whole sales process and provided guidance on the optimal strategy for selling our condo. As a result, the process was painless and quick. Our condo sold within weeks and we received close to our target price and a high rate of return in the current market conditions. We sold and closed much faster than other condos in our building! “

– H.P (Don Mills)

“Gillian’s knowledge and understanding of the real-estate market combined with her attention to detail makes selling your property a pleasure, ensures success. Gillian provides realistic and sage advice. In an industry typically tainted with focus only on self-gains, I found Gillian to truly look out for my interests. She operates with high integrity and honesty. Gillian can be trusted. Gillian would be my go-to person to buy/sell my next property.”

“I just want to take a moment to thank and express my pleasure with Gillian Santink, a real estate agent who represented me in my purchase of a single-family home. Gillian guided me through the entire process, from real estate 101, loan prequalification to searching for houses to making the offer and closing the deal. I credit Gillian with a smooth, enjoyable, and stress-free home-buying experience. From the moment I met Gillian, I knew she was the one and the natural choice for me (you cannot go wrong with your gut feeling). I met her in one of those days that you consider as a lucky day. Those lucky days do not happen often and when they happen they happen for a reason. I found that reason in her. On the first day she promised to me that she would get me a house, my first house that I will be happy with. Her promise was so genuine and honest. I must honestly say that if it wasn’t for her being there right with me through the entire process, I would have backed out of my home purchase plan. THANKS GILLIAN!!!

This is my first purchase, and had such a pleasurable experience because of her expertise, knowledge, and more than all her true personality, honesty and patience. Gillian is savvy, personable and knows the market inside and out. She also understood my needs and gave me the time and space I needed to shop and decide. Throughout this process never felt any pressure, but just an honest opinion. She went the extra miles in so many ways to help me to make the right decision. I am nothing but pleased with Gillian, her expertise & services. I would definitely recommend her for anyone who is looking to buy and sell a house. ”

“As a first time homebuyer, there were many questions I had. Upon meeting Gillian, I knew I was in good hands. I loved Gillian’s approach to the vast world of real estate. She told us to keep an open mind and showed us a whole range of homes. We narrowed down our search to one neighbourhood and instead of just waiting for a home to go on sale, Gillian send out letters to the neighbourhoood and even went door to door asking residents if they had any plans to sell their home. Ultimately, my wife and I found our dream house 🙂

I would highly recommend Gillian for the professional and courteous service she provides. Whenever anyone asks me for my opinion on a real estate agent/broker, I don’t hesitate in providing Gillian’s name! ”

“Buying my first house was so much easier with Gillian’s guidance. She related to me on a personal basis – gave me the guidance I needed – was honest with her input and guided we through the whole process.

– M.T (Don Mills)

“Gillian’s knowledge of current market conditions combined with her energetic attitude reassured me that I made the right choice in selecting her as my agent.

It was a pleasure working with her and I look forward to working with her again. “

“We hired Gillian to sell our family home of over 40 years. It was a stressful time in our lives, and Gillian handled everything quickly, expertly, and with compassion. We are forever grateful and would gladly recommend Gillian to anyone looking for a top professional and caring
person.”

– P.W (Toronto)

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, Gillian for the professional and caring manner that you used with my mother and myself when dealing with the sale of my aunt’s condominium. Not only were you extremely helpful, knowledgeable and efficient, you were extremely patient when dealing with my mother. She felt very comfortable with your friendly approach. As you know, people in their 90’s tend to be skeptical. You also kept me up-to-date with your daily report of previous and projected activity for the sale.

I am extremely impressed that the condominium sold in less than a week and for more than asking. You definitely know your market and how to achieve a sale quickly.

With out reservations, I will refer you to any of my friends or associates who would like to sell their properties. ”

“What can I say? It is unique, that some one does what she says, and Gillian Santink was perfect. She sold my home quick, at my requested price and was very patient in helping me find my next home. It took 16 months, and there was never any pressure. Gillian Santink truly has her clients best interest, first.
Many thanks. “

“It has been our pleasure to work with Gillian Santink during the sale of our parent`s home in Don Mills. We found Gillian to be very helpful in all aspects of the process and because of our “absentee“ status and not knowing the real estate market in Toronto, this help was essential.

She always kept us apprised of what to expect, we always had a “next steps“ agenda from her, and were kept aware of all the activity with regards to the house. We often felt that we were her only customers at the time because she was always available to us.

We would not hesitate to recommend Gillian Santink to our best friends and family. ”

– M.L. (Don Mills)

“It is my pleasure to advise that when I sold my aunt`s property at Fashion Roseway Gillian Santink handled the sale with total professionalism.

Without her, as I live in England, the sale would not have gone through. I had to change solicitors mid way and had so many telephone conversations to make this work.

She talked me through the most delicate of matters and assisted me in many other ways. She was always at the end of the telephone to give guidance, as I became quite nervous of the Canadian way of selling, very different to the British way.

When I needed to speak to her she was always available, 7:30 am Canadian time was the usual time for us to speak, or on my return home in the evenings or whenever a question dictated contact.

A very nice and caring lady who`s professional charisma concluded the sale. An introduction to this lady came out of the blue, wasn`t I lucky.

You should be proud to have her as one of your team. ”

– G.R. (England)

“I felt I needed to let Gillian Santink’s superiors know what experience we`ve had with Gillian as our agent. Last year, we were fortunate to find and use her as the listing agent for a condominium at 1 Hycrest. During the entire process, we have never dealt with a more efficient and professional agent (and we have dealt with 20+ purchases and sales in our 45 years of marriage).

As a result, we decided to call upon her again when we had an income home to list, even though it was completely out of her area. Once again, she did a magnificent job of the listing, of updating us constantly, making recommendations, and finally to get the best price possible. Her professionalism, pleasant personality and competency truly exceeded our expectations.

I know we will have opportunities for purchases and sales in the future, as well as our daughter, and we will consider no other agent for our real estate needs. Gillian Santink impressed us that much.

We will refer her to all family and friends. Well done, and many thanks Gillian!”

– L.I. (Willowdale)

“I would recommend that you consider working with Gillian Santink for your real estate needs. I have worked with many realtors, selling and buying four different homes in my life and have Gillian far surpassed all of them. She is incredibly professional, completely organized and extremely easy to work with. She knows her market and is able to ensure your home shows to gain the most out of the market. In searching she is thorough and patient.

In my case, my home sold in six days at 108% of asking. Her strategy made sense and she laid out the time line that worked with my busy schedule. After talking with other agents it was easy to see that she is outstanding and I know will provide you with a similar experience. ”

– L.P. (Don Mills)

“Thank you for your hard work, dedication and guidance through the planning, marketing and sales through multiple offer process. You were very articulate, patient, most knowledgeable and presented yourself in a professional manner.

We had met and were contacted by many other realtors, but since we met you, right from the start we realized we made a right decision to hire you as our real estate agent. And you proved it! You sold our house in a week, and not just sold, but firm sold.

We are extremely happy and highly recommend you to anyone without hesitation.”

– D.P. and M.P. (Don Mills)

“I just wanted to drop you a quick note and thank you for all your help in selling my condo.

Given your knowledge of the current market conditions and the Don Mills area, combined with your energetic attitude, I was confident that I made the right choice in selecting you as my agent. When you presented your strategy for selling my condo, I knew in my mind that it was the right way to go but it`s hard to be void of emotion when selling a home. You told me to trust the process and I did. As such, not only did I end up selling for what you said the value of my condo was, but for more!

On top of this, you provided such great value for my money – the amazing photos, the floor plan, the just listed cards, the feature sheets, the daily summary reports, and so on.

It was a pleasure working with you and I look forward to working with you again in the future. ”

– J.C. (Don Mills)

“Gillian Santink`s obvious care for her clients and her passion for the success of the transaction were demonstrated through her consummate attention to detail and timely contacts with us.

From the beginning of the process, Gillian kept us informed with the viewings and all knowledge remained transparent.

We would happily recommend her to any future clients. ”
