Working with Bill to find our dream home was great! He was there every step of the way, thoroughly explaining everything and answering all of the many questions we had. Bill helped us to feel confident in all of our decisions, and iron out every last detail. He was able to accommodate our very hectic schedule, and we always felt as though we were the top priority! If we ever choose to make another move we wouldn't have to think twice about who we would choose as our realtor!

We could not be more pleased with the outcome you achieved with the sale of our house. Thank you! You are truly a "real estate professional".
Brian and Deb
Just wanted to extend a huge thank you from Barbara and I for doing a super job in nailing down the whole process, in a very tight time frame. You are a true pro! Enjoy! Keep in touch.

I just want to thank you for your commitment to selling my condominium. Your profesionalism and communication throughout the process was outstanding. Your weekly reporting kept me apprised of the activity in the area and with my condo specifically. Thank you for suggesting staging the condo...I'm still amazed it was sold 1 week after staging it! You are a pleasure to work with and I would not hesitate to recommend your services in the future.
As we slowly moving into the house, we enjoy the house more and more everyday. Thank you so much for all the work you put into this deal for us! You have taken care of everything, and also taught us so many things about buying houses. Even now, after the deal had been closed, you still help us in renovation! Also, thanks a lot for the TV, we had to bother you on Sunday to carry it over for us. Hope I'll have the opportunity to have you as my agent again!

I want to thank you for your assistance in helping me find a condo to rent that I really love. I know I was not always the easiest client but you were very patient and stuck with me until you found me just what I was looking for. I also appreciated your insights about what were good areas and buildings that I might consider.
I have used other real-estate agents previously but I have never had any one who really represented me and made sure the contract I signed was in my best interest. The fact you were still there for me after I signed the contract was more then I expected since no other real-estate agent has done this before.
The written inspection worksheet information you gave me from Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation really helped me to get prepared to do the inspection because I would never had thought of checking many of the things on their list. Your offering to go with me for the inspection of the condo I rented to make sure everything is in proper working condition, and to take pictures to insure that I would not be accused of breaking, abusing or doing any damage to the apartment shows what a dedicated, caring person you are and that you truly have your clients' interest at heart.
If I know any one who is thinking of moving I will highly recommend that they contact and use you as the agent
Thank you for everything
Bill -- Thanks for your excellent service during the entire process of selling my condo. Your helpfulness in preparing the unit for sale was much appreciated. I was also impressed with your professionalism and patience, as well as with how you kept me fully informed along the way. All in all, you were a pleasure to work with!
I was frazzled!
Here I was in British Columbia, with an offer on a townhouse that my daughter and I really liked, after looking for a year in Penticton B.C.. But, it was listed for more than I had counted on, and more than I had, and my condominium apartment in Toronto was not sold. I had bridge financing, which effectively meant, I owned two properties with less than the money for one.
So I contacted Bill Orr, ad told him our dilemma. It was in fall and the real estate market was cooling off, plus my particular condo had the view of a brick wall on the second floor. Who would buy it? Bill was faced with potential buyers who couldn't look beyond the "view" even though the unit itself had California shutters throughout, laminate floors and tile throughout as well as a completely renovated kitchen and updated bathrooms.
Bill set to work staging the unit, photographing a virtual tour and giving the unit its own website in order to show that the unit itself was very presentable. When my daughter (and anyone else) saw the virtual tour and the pictures, they thought it looked great. f
Frankly, in my opinion it showed better than the other units in my building which were currently listed for sale at the same time. My daughter wanted to move back she said, after seeing the web pictures! Bill didn't try to "hide" the view, you couldn't anyway, but he made suggestions that there was complete privacy, and he showed them the view after they had seen the unit.
I didn't like heights, so for me a unit higher up would not have been a selling point, as I would never go out to look, and as it turned out, Bill's marketing was so good that the buyer looked him up after seeing my unit on the website, and for them, the second floor was fine, as they needed quick access to emergency services in the event there was a power outage and they needed to get a family member out quickly.
So there is a buyer for every situation, but Bill's quick action and marketing got my place sold in two weeks from the listing date, and he got a quick closing as well which was important to me.
Kevin and I were quite nervous to buy a home. As a newly married couple with a baby on the way, it was nerve racking! Luckily, we had Bill Orr looking after us. He worked very hard to find us the perfect home, actively balancing our wishes and budget. We have been here for a year now, and continue to be happy with our first home. Bill, you went above and beyond and we can’t thank you enough!!!

Our experience with our agent Bill Orr was very professional and exceeded our expectations. We were well informed by him and he kept us up to speed at all times. We felt he went beyond his duties as our agent and gave us his undivided attention which we appreciated. We trusted him during our time of buying our first home which made it a great and smooth experience.
I want to thank you for making it possible for me to be in this lovely new home. The service you provided was outstanding! No detail was too small (or silly!) for you to give it your full attention. You were energetic and enthusiastic in helping me look for and find a home. You gave me excellent advice in a wide range of questions, referred me to excellent resources such as a mortgage broker and lawyer. I couldn’t have asked for any better attention and I’ll always be grateful for your help.
