“Dear Leanne:

We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation for all the hard work that you have done on our behalf. You made the process of selling our home and purchasing a new one quite enjoyable. Indeed, we could not imagine using any Realtor other than you.
Should anybody come forward to us making inquiries on finding a good Realtor, we will recommend you without hesitation. Your consistent upbeat demeanor and abundant smiles helped us through the daunting challenge of finding a new home. You were patient with us as we looked at home after home, not quite finding what we wanted. You were persistent and kept looking for us until we found something perfect.
Equally, you did a wonderful job selling our home as well. You sold our home in record time for our building at a higher price than we were expecting. We appreciate all the hard work you did in following up on each viewing and always looking for more prospective buyers.
I can say with the utmost confidence, that Leanne de Souza will always put her client first and will always strive to make them happy. You will be the first choice for all our Real Estate needs in the future.”

“Dear Leanne,

Now that we are prepareing to move I thought it would be a good time to drop you a line and let you know how pleased we are with the service you have provided. We felt like we were dealing with a friend and not just a realtor. The fact that you were able to get us top dollar for our home is is very gratifying. When a person sells or buys real estate it can be a very worrisome experience. You took a large portion of that worry off of our shoulders. Your whole attitude gave us comfort in knowing that our property was in good hands. We really appreciate your frequent phone calls to keep us informed how things were progressing. We have enjoyed your pleasant personality and professionalism and look forward to seeing you in the future. We feel that we can highly recommend you and the service you provide to any of our friends and family and anyone else buying or selling real estate.
…………. We wish your every success possible. You deserve it. “

“Throughout the entire process, from filling out the listing documents, to accepting the sale, you were extremely professional and attentive. You conducted your open houses in a professional manner with good results, and always followed up promptly with feedback information from all of the realtors that showed our home. You are also very well respected by the strata council members in this building……
The listing information that you provided was very informative. We appreciated your use of the “virtual tour” as it is an excellent tool for presenting properties to buyers. We noticed that many other realtors that were selling units in our building did not even put pictures on their listings.
It was a pleasure working with you on the sale of our home, and we are very happy with the final results which gave us a sale in a timely manner at an excellent price. We will recommend you as a realtor to anyone wishing to deal with a professional and will certainly be contacting you when it is time to sell our next home.

Thank you for selling our property, and we invite you to come visit us when we finally get to our new place. ”

“I wish to take this opportunity to thank you for the exceptional job you have done regarding the sale of my home. To my astonishment, my unit was sold in less than 3 weeks from the time it had been listed. As a result of your web site exposure and the personal attention you have provided, my property sold for a larger amount than the asking price.
I will not hesitate to call on you for any of my future real estate needs and I will be sure to recommend you to anyone who may require this service. “

– Renee Dow


“Dear Leanne:
Please accept my sincere thanks for your friendly, professional help during my recent home purchase. I appreciated your down-to-earth approach to the whole process which, I imagine, could have been much trickier, especially since it was a case of dual agency.
Thank you also for your prompt follow-up on every detail. You were very efficient and it was a pleasure doing business with you! “

“To whom it may concern,I would like to take this opportunity to compliment Leanne de Souza on her effort given to help me find a home. I came to HomeLife Benchmark Realty knowing only that I would like to have a place to live, and Leanne guided me from there. My price range was quite low, but even with such a substantial restriction she was able to find multiple units in multiple complexes that were within my meager budget. I spent roughly a month looking for an apartment with Leanne, and she was very helpful and happy with all of my requests to see multiple apartments in the evenings when it was convenient for me. In the end, Leanne’s contacts in the real estate industry led us to a very unique opportunity to find an exceptional apartment at a very reasonable price that was available immediately. At that point I still did not know what to do, and Leanne assisted in every step of the purchase procedure, from analyzing the minutes ofthe strata council to finding an excellent mortgage broker. Having enjoyed my home purchase, I am now living happily ever after in my new apartment thanks to Leanne de Souza.”

“We have known Leanne for over 10 years. Leanne will be our one and only choice. Working with Leanne means you’re her top priority available for all details of buying or selling. We have never met any other realtor whose integrity and honesty come close to hers. If we were rating hotels, Leanne would be 5 star.”

– Roland & Eden Tamaray


“I know from past experience that very few agents take the time to explain all the details the way you did. I was very gratified that my wishes regarding price and what I was willling to include remained paramount importance in your negotiations on my behalf.”

– Nancy Fehr

“In September we began our search for a real estate agent. There were many unsuccessful interviews with a variety of agents who worked for numerous real estate companies. As our search continued, it was by shear chance that we met Leanne de Souza of Homelife Benchmark Realty. We had called her to view one of her listings. As we sat and talked afterwards, we realized that she was an extremely boisterous person and best of all an “honest” one. From that moment on she had won our trust. It was with great pleasure that she assisted us in the sale of our townhouse, and then with the purchase of our new home. She is a sincere, caring individual who honestly loves what she does for a living, and it shows. Never, for us, has a real estate agent worked so hard and made it seem so effortless. We never felt as though our requests were a “bother”. She will always remain our real estate agent of choice, but we like to consider her a new family friend. In the future, we will continue to recommend Leanne de Souza to our friends and family.”
