I've done the smartest thing to reach out to a friend to ask for his advise when choosing a real estate agent. He said he had an agent who couldn’t sell his property and then he hired Patrick & Chantal. They figured why and sold it in record time. I met with them and told them I would only work with them if they promised to treat my house as if it was their very own and did they ever!
From there on it was full steam ahead and I was overwhelmed, I needed a plumber, electrician, carpenter, carpet replacement, etc. I knew different handy men who could do some of this, but there was no way I could co-ordinate, negotiate, and schedule them separately by myself while working full time and we were going on vacation! Patrick & Chantal had all the resources, preferred pricing for their clients and in a day everything was scheduled. I went away with my family for a week. When I came back and opened the door, I felt like I entered into a new house… young and fresh! Everything was done to the perfection.
Wednesday they listed. Thursday we had tons of visits. Friday they sold my house and it was a quiet market! It turned out I made the best decision in hiring Patrick & Chantal, she is a creative thinker, an exceptional marketer with superior project management skills and Patrick is a true bull fighter when it comes to listing a home, getting it ready, promoting it and negotiating the very best price! Best decision I ever made!!!!
We have worked with Patrick and Chantal on the last four of our buying/selling transactions and we would use them again in a heartbeat. Patrick and Chantal exude professionalism and empathy. Buying and/or selling a home can be very emotional and stressful. Patrick and Chantal are excellent at understanding those emotions, listening to what your needs are and ensuring that you get them.
We have also found that the relationship doesn’t end once papers are signed. Both Chantal and Patrick are very quick to respond to any questions that we may have in regards to contractors, gardeners, and general housing questions. They are never too busy to answer their phones or emails and always do so in a cheerful manner.
Both Patrick and Chantal are community and family oriented people. They really care about what happens within their/our community and always have their fingers on the pulse in terms of the housing market (and great places to eat!).
Patrick and Chantal are a dynamic team that anyone would be lucky to work with.
JANET & TIM SHEA
Because of their deep roots within the community, Patrick & Chantal have access to more real estate information than any other agent that we met. They accommodated our schedule and made the search effortless. We did not feel rushed or pressured at any point. After asking the right questions, Chantal quickly understood what we were looking for. From then on, she only presented options that included our priorities. With three kids at home, our time is very precious and Chantal didn’t waste any of it.
Their service didn’t stop at the end of the real estate transaction. Patrick has stopped by to check in when he is in the area. Chantal has introduced us to the local restaurant scene. Patrick provided us with advice on our options for hockey leagues.They recommended a variety of local service providers from contractors to lawyers to medical professionals.I would personally recommend the services of Patrick and Chantal.
Their market knowledge, communication and professional service ensured a simple and smooth transition for my entire family. It also brings us peace of mind knowing that we have two resources, and friends, who we can ask for help at any time.

Working with Chantal was truly a pleasure. We were looking for our “perfect” house in the Leaside area and were referred to Chantal. She fully understood our needs and was extremely proactive in showing us the appropriate homes and not wasting anyone’s time. She made herself available at a moments notice for showings and she was always reachable pretty much any time of day.
This was a very enjoyable experience. We found our “perfect” house and would refer any of our friends and family to Chantal. She’s professional, knowledgeable and a great person who we still stay in touch with.

"I hired Chantal recently, to help me buy a condo. I was pressed for time, had no experience in the condo market, in fact, I had no idea what I was looking for. Chantal's expertise in the real estate market in Toronto is what first made me hire her, but, it's her willingness to work around my schedule, her upbeat demeanor, her honest opinions and advice and her full service policy is what makes me recommend her over and over again!” Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity
"Thank you so much Chantal for the wonderful professional service you gave me in the sale of my house in only 7 days!
Your knowledge of the real estate market is equally matched by your honest and dedicated nature towards your clients. I could not have found a more prepared and organized agent, you're truly the best!
I am very glad I trusted you with your advice and recommendations.Thank you again for making this stressful time easy by always being available to me and walking me through all the steps involved in the process.
I will be sure to recommend you to my friends, family and colleagues!"

"Selling our family home was emotionally difficult. Our parents had bought the house as newlyweds over 60 years ago and after my mother passed away, it was clear that my father couldn't live alone. With heavy hearts we made the decision to sell the house.
At first we thought we could sell it privately. But as the days and weeks went by, we realized how difficult selling a house can be. The paperwork alone overwhelmed us so we called Bosley and that’s how we met Chantal!
Chantal is very professional, knowledgeable and thorough. She was realistic and straight forward with her plan for selling our home. At the same time she was kind, supportive of our emotional state and she always kept her sense of humour.
Chantal worked very hard to get the best possible price for our family home and she most certainly delivered on that. She clearly explained what we needed to know and ensured that we understood all our options.
Chantal took the pressure off us and sold our home in less than a week! We would not hesitate to recommend her, she is an excellent real estate professional."
As a lawyer well versed in contract law, I was not convinced that I needed an agent and moreover, I had been dismayed at the complete lack of interest any agents had shown in working with a buyer. After a couple of months, I attended an open house I knew Chantal would be the right agent for me to work with. Indeed, my instincts were right, Chantal worked tirelessly with me to find a condominium that suited my well-defined specifications. I can say without hesitation that I would highly recommend Chantal Vaillancourt as a real estate agent.
We have been happy to recommend Chantal as a valuable real estate agent to many of our friends and acquaintances and have had confidence in her hard work and warm professionalism. Chantal helped us sell our condominium in the upscale community of Le Plateau. We had been regularly visiting open houses and happened in on one of her showings. We were immediately impressed with her eagerness and knowledge of the area and market and decided to go with her as our selling agent as well as our buying agent.
Chantal always respected our needs and our immediate confidence in her was surprising even to us, but it was not without reason. The purchase of the house we moved into was complicated as was the sale of our condo. Chantal helped us eventually move into the home of our dreams even when we thought it would be impossible.
MARIA VIOLINI & JJ HEISLER
Through a friend in Winnipeg, we contacted Chantal to help us find a condo for our son. Both my wife (in Winnipeg) and my son communicated regularly with Chantal by email and telephone. Over one weekend, Chantal arranged to visit some key properties with my wife and son; she picked-up my wife and facilitated the process. With Chantal's invaluable assistance, an offer was made and accepted that very same evening. Margaret returned to Winnipeg and Chantal continued to assist my son.
In closing, we never would have found our son's condo without the help of Chantal Vaillancourt. She was extremely knowledgeable, efficient, helpful and professional. We believe she went above and beyond the call of duty to facilitate this long distance purchase and made this experience an enjoyable one. I truly believe that she is a valuable asset to the real estate industry.
MARGARET & GREG ARASON
I hired Patrick Rocca & Chantal Vaillancourt to list my downtown condo on the Monday and flew overseas on the Wednesday. I trusted them to handle everything. I had listed 3 months before with another agent and no offers, no sale!
With Patrick & Chantal's advice, expertise and professional resources, I had more showings in the first 24 hrs than the entire 2 months before. And we received an offer in the first 24 hours over asking, sold it the day after the buyer's lawyer received the status to review.
Any agent can list your condo, but I recommend Patrick Rocca and Chantal Vaillancourt to sell your condo anywhere in the city!
It was our lucky day when Patrick introduced us to you Chantal and enlisted your enthusiastic & top notch skills. As fast as we noticed another listing, you researched it and gave it your informed yay or nay; we don't know when you sleep. Your energy, positive attitude and sense of humor really carried us forward, and your expertise was essential to our purchase. And the follow up in getting information on all sorts of closing items was invaluable. We love our home and we can't say enough about you.
BONNIE & DAVE HUDSON
Gerry and I would like to thank you for your early work, the condos you showed us helped us to decide what direction we wanted to go. The excellent advice you have given us consistently and the work you did leading up to the house going on the market and while it was on the market. All of this is a reflection of the time, care and honest advice you give to people in helping them making a decision.
JIL & JERRY
In working with Chantal for our home search, we found the perfect balance in her ability to provide insight to the market while also understanding and appreciating our specific needs.
Our search was an extended one in a volatile marketplace and Chantal never wavered in her commitment to providing us the best possible service throughout the piece.
Whether booking a short notice viewing request, arranging engineer appointments, or simply asking for a point of view, Chantal was always accommodating, professional and could always be counted on to deliver.
She took a personal interest in our home search and made us feel that she always had our best interest at heart. We would not hesitate in recommending Chantal to anyone who is looking to purchase a property in the Toronto market.
DENISE & BRAD PARRY
Chantal, it has been an extreme pleasure working with you. You were so patient as I went through my "likes" & "dislikes" and what was or wasn't important to us. Your knowledge of how the housing market works gave me a sense of security, and I felt I was working with a true professional who wasn't just trying to "sell something." Thanks again Chantal for helping us find our perfect Davisville home!
CHRISTINE & ROB
I’m so incredibly grateful to have worked with Chantal as my realtor. Her service was impeccable from start to finish. It was not easy for me to make the decision to sell my home as I had listed it earlier this year with a different realtor who did not sell my property. Chantal was very supportive and gave me great insight regarding the market and her impressive track record as a realtor that netted results reassured me. Her dedication to excellence and patient service throughout the process of re-designing my home for sale was a tremendous encouragement.
Chantal went the extra mile to showcase my property in every way! Her use of industry professionals for design, photos and graphics and all of her marketing efforts ensured white glove service to me as client and gave me peace of mind in the process. Chantal sold my home in 6 days and I couldn’t be happier! I would highly recommend Chantal Vaillancourt to anyone seeking a truly committed and thorough real estate professional with a creative ability to solve any issue and be consistently available to meet and exceed all expectations. A true pleasure to work with.”
Although I'm not yet in the market for a house, I recommended Chantal to a client of mine who wanted to sell her house. I was thrilled to find out that within 7 days Chantal sold her house.
I will most certainly recommend Chantal at every opportunity I get and I will retain her services when I'm also in need of a house.
Chantal you're the best and thanks for making me proud to recommend you....
“I met Chantal by chance at the open house of what has become my dream home. The fact that it is mine, I owe a lot to Chantal. She used creativity and perserverance to make the deal happen and then leveraged those same skills to quickly sell my existing home profitably. Chantal is a pleasure to work with, her professionalism combined with genuine interest in making "the right deal for me", makes her the agent I recommend to friends.” Top qualities: Great Results, High Integrity, Creative JANE FITZWILLIAM
I worked with Chantal for over 10 years and I can attest that she is the most professional, courteous and caring person I have every worked with. Chantal listens and takes pride in getting to know what you want and need to be happy. Her business is mostly referrals because so many want her to succeed the way in which she has helped them achieve their goals. I have no hesitation in recommending Chantal to anyone of my friends and associates.
