Testimonials

I have been absolutely delighted with all aspects of the service. Greg Ball knew the Lakefield market like the back of his hand. Being from out of town and selling my mom's house Greg took all of the worry out of the process. We decided together how to best prepare mom's house for sale, his marketing plan and advertising was beyond compare.
Sharon and Denise in the office kept me up to date on all showings and feedback.
The multiple offer situation was handled beautifully and in less than a week the house was listed and sold!
Many thanks to Greg and his Team.
 
Found both Greg & Judy to be very friendly & efficient.  Was not the easiest piece of property to sell but the process went very smoothly & quickly once they matched a buyer with the property.
 
From my first meeting with Greg Ball, I felt very confident with his skill & knowledge of the real estate field.
I appreciate the wonderful communication that I received from the staff.
Thanks Greg,

My son Larry recommended you to me when I mentioned putting the house up for sale. I am so glad he did, I could not have been more pleased than I am for the expertise in which my home was put on the market. Greg had such a pleasant way of explaining every detail to me. It was such an honour to have him in my home, was fun to talk with but yet very business like when it was necessary. The advertising and all the leg work he did was exceptional. Thank-you so much. I am very happy.

As usual Greg Ball was excellent for the purchase of this property.  He provided great knowledge of the area and current pricing.  He negociated a good deal for me and was fair to the seller for this double ended deal.  I will both recommentd Greg as well as hire him in the future.  Thanks.
Very Professional!
Our experience with Greg Ball went extremely well.  From the first day we met Greg, he made us feel comfortable and reassured us that he would work hard to sell our cottage.  It was helpful to receive emails with updates after each client saw our cottage.  Greg was easy to reach before, during and after the sale of our cottage.  He responded to all our questions and always went the extra mile to help us.  We will definitely recommend Greg to our family and friends.  Thank you Greg for your expertise and marketing skills.  It certainly made this selling experience that much better.  Best of luck in your future endeavours.
Greg showed great perseverence and determination in selling the three properties.  Good negotiating skills!
We were very satisfied with our experiense selling our commercial store and house.  It was a challenge but Greg Ball and his staff didn't give up.  All showings were communicated and list of marketing was provided.  Excellent experience and would recommend their services to another.
Greg was fabulous to work with.  He went the extra mile to get us the answers we needed and the deal we were happy with.  He put his family on hold to meet us at all hours.  Thanks
It was a pleasant experience from the day we listed with Greg to the day I sold my house.  Greg and his team were very professional.
I will recommend you highly to my neighbors who are thinking of selling soon.
On the day I listed with Greg (June 11/15) I asked Greg when he thinks this house should sell… He said “he said if not sold by end of September I will be very surprised…” SOLD on SEPT 15/15 and for 96% of asking price!!!
 
Greg Ball was a very informative man with alot of patience!  We appreciated his no pressure style.  He made choosing a cottage (especially from a distance) a relatively easy and fun experience.  We were well pleased with his service and would definitely recommend him to others.
We have had the pleasure of working with Judy for our real estate transactions. She is very professional and helpful.
Keith & Denise Rye
Awesome!
It was wonderful!  Any suggestion I made was acted on promptly and no one tried to hide the fact that this home would take awhile to sell.  Loved dealing with Greg Ball and would recommend this realtor to anyone.
Greg and his team were very professional and yet collegial & friendly.  We are very appreciative of their hard work and their personal correspondence.
I would like to thank you for the professional way that you conduct business in Real Estate.
Mark Round was a pleasure to do business with.  He would continually make himself available when I needed advice.  He make the "selling experience" easier for me to handle.
Thank you again!
Very Well Handled.Property sold quickly, above expected selling price.Well Done.
Greg Ball made purchasing our "dream" cottage an extraordingary event.  We appreciate his help for guiding us throught the entire process.
 My home had far more exposure on the market than with any other Realtor.  Because of this I had far more showings to prospective buyers.  It was also a pleasure talking to Sharon & Denise.  They made me feel like part of the family rather than just another seller.  Greg always returned my phone calls promptly and offered help and advice.
It has been a wonderful experience.  Greg and his team have shown me what professionalism should be.

Greg & Judy are my "go-to" Realty Agents.  They are wonderful to work with and handle the whole process professionally and effectively.  Their team provides them with impecable support services.  It is a real pleasure to work with them all! I am delighted that my property has been sold and that I have been able to purchase a new property with their help of Sales Representative Dianne DeSavoye.

This was our "second round" with Judy & Greg.  Both times we found them respectful warm and available with good sound advice.  Having worked with 3 other sets of agents, we would always recommend "The Ball's" to others.

"OUTSTANDING"

Being a widow and never doing this on my own (buying or selling) I was a little apprehensive.  Greg & Judy made me feel at ease right from the first visit.  I was impressed with the speed with which any of my calls were returned and their knowledge and genuine friendliness.  They also put me in touch with Dianne who was every bit as helpful in finding me a home in Peterborough.
Very fast and knowledgeable service.
                                               Thanks
Rather than fill out the survey sent to us, I thought I would take the time to write a note about Greg Ball.
This man has been truly exceptional in the sale of our cottage and the pruchase of another. He guided us and provided everything we needed in a professional, knowledgeable, kind manner.
During the sale, my husband was extremely ill and Greg took the reins, helped us keep it all together, led the way and handled everything for us in the most caring manner.
Nothing is too much trouble for Greg. Even after the deal was done he kept in touch to make sure all was okay. He is a wonderful person and we are so honoured to have met him.
We simply connot say enough good thing about this caring, compassionate man.
We do not hesitate to recommend him, and indeed have done so and will continue to do so at every opportunity.
Many many thanks to Greg.
Pam Dunlop.
Greg Ball is super knowledgeable of the Real Estate business. He is very personable and a people person. It was a pleaure working with him.

Greg Ball saved the deal on the place we are in now, after the deal had gone sour!!

Greg is a very motivated, professional and caring realtor and we are very thankful to him for everything.

Greg was very thorough working by phone, email and fax to complete the job.
He worked long hours because of the time difference.
He was always very courteous & patient working through all the details.
He was also very patient in dealing with other family members.
Greg did an excellent job from start to finish.

Lots of showings once price was reduced.
Great follow up from office staff.
We were prepared to wait longer for the sale - happy it sold as quick as it did!!

Santino.

The main importance is that I trust and respect Greg & Judy Ball.

Thank-you.

This was an extremely difficult transaction as there were several people involved.

Judy helped us through it very professionally to get the best value for the cottage.

I am extremely happy with how the transaction was handled, the speed at which it was sold and the price we got for the cottage.

I would certainly use her again to sell or buy property and remcommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell property.

I certainly made the right choice in hiring Greg and Judy Ball!!

From the moment we first met, I felt complete confidence they would sell my home and help me get settled in my new home.

I will gladly recommend their service to my family and friends.

Thanks - Again, Judy Ball and Greg Ball.
 


It is always a great experience buying and selling with Judy & Greg. 

In all the homes I sold and purchased they were always right with price and marketing.

If ever I have another real estate transaction, Judy & Greg will be my agent.

First Class, Excellent Service, Trustworthy!!

Ian & Mairi Anderson.

We can't wait for moving day!!

 Greg Ball is an excellent real estate agent. He understands people, he's sensitive to issues, and he's a skilled negotiator. Above all, a pleasure to work with. Thanks Greg for helping to sell my property.
Judy Steed


Judy Ball was polite, friendly and extremely knowledgeable.

Doreen Cole.
When you list a property for sale you expect a level of professionalism. With our recent listing & consequent sale the bar of competence & character was set high and fulfilled. We apprecitate all of Greg's efforts and will continue to recommend  him as an agent.

Great Job!!

Lesley Holder.

My mother thought it would be an impossible task to find and secure a buyer during the winter months for her house in Apsley.
She is very impressed with Greg's enthusiasm and energy to acomplish this in such a short time, with positive results.
I sold a house on Katchewanooka Lake 10 yrs ago with Greg and I was impressed with his professionalism and efficiency to find and secure a buyer.
I will be using Greg in the future.
Thanks.
Bill Stirton


10 years ago we used Greg Ball to purchase our cottage and 10 years later we did not hesitate to call him when we wanted to sell.
Down the road should we decide to buy again we will use Greg.
Great Job!!!

Kim & Lisa Richardson.

Efficient, Friendly, Fast.

This is the third time I've used Judy & Greg. They have been very kind and supportive and always available. They are, and will continue to be my first choice for real estate needs.


Greg was very knowledgeable with everything. He knew how important it was for us to be informed and let us know about everything as soon as he did. He was always on time, always called us when he said he would. Overall there is not one negative thing I could say about Greg Ball. I already have and will continue to refer people to him for real estate. He made something we dreaded very smooth and great.
Dave & Crystal Currie.

Both Judy & Greg were very professional.
P. Sangster. 


We were given Greg Balls name from our cottage neighbour who used his services to sell their cottage and  were really pleased. We are also very happy beyond expectation of Greg's assistance. He is very quick to return emails, questions and is very knowledgeable. We have 100% faith in him and would highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling. Best experience we have ever had with a real estate agent.
Bob & Sandra Ellis.


We were very pleased with the overall experience. We were kept informed of the progress being made.
Sharon & Denise were very helpful as well.
Don & Betty Woodman.

Greg & Judy were quick to inform me and keep me updated on over 20 properties before I purchased. The seller was difficult to deal with but Greg got my offer accepted with a short closing.
They also sold my previous house after 20 months on the market. The real estate slump in the economy for my price range was weathered.They advertised it faithfully & had 2 or 3 open houses and approx 50 private showings I sold it for about 95% of my asking price.
Mark St. Pierre.

I want to thank all of Greg & Judy's staff for being so proffessional in selling my home. Everything I asked for was always done as for setting up appointments as well as getting feed back on showings.
I would highly recommend your company and in any future sales for myself.
Thank-you for making this a pleasurable experience.
Rick Kelly.

A great, stress-free experience! Hopefully we will be back someday to buy a cottage!
Francesco Princiottz & Sara Johnston.

Judy & Greg listed our home & it sold in a few days.
We were very satisfied with the service & information we received.

Great Experience. Would highly recommend to others and would use again.
Bob & Patty Pluard.

Greg Ball has handled this and other real estate for me. I find him to be prompt,  professional and knowledgeable!!
Jody Hughes.

This is my 2nd time dealing with Greg & Judy Ball. The first time was when I bought my house and now selling it. I would recommend them to anyone. They are very knowledgeable with what they do but are also extremely nice and easy to work with. I also have to commend Sharon Avery & Denise Ball they were superb! If I ever move again I definitely will contact your company.
Carol Clarke.

Judy & Greg Ball have done multiple listings and sales for ourselves and family members. They continue to provide exceptional service and we will use them whenever the need arises.
Thank you.
J.R.


Greg has been extremely diligent, professional and gone the extra mile once again for us. This is our fourth real estate transaction with Greg & Judy and we just wouldn't use anyone else. Greg goes above and beyond the call of duty, understands the market and listens to his clients.

Thank you once again for helping us ensure the next phase of our life was a very positive move.

All The Best !!
Ian & Deb McRae.

We requested information & received it promptly so that we could move forward with our purchase. The whole buying process was painless and hassle free - before we knew it the whole deal came together as we had hoped.
Thank you!!
Bob & Joan Hill.

Nothing touched me so very much by receiving the C.D. (virtual tour) of my home.
Judy has the personal touch her honesty is so important, she is like a good friend.
Incidently the C.D. mad me cry a lot which was ok because I have been denying that I didn't care about selling. Thank you Judy!!
Cecila Siddall.

You made it almost easy. Very knowledgeable and professional. Any requests taken care of immediately.
My only regret is that I did not originally list you both. Better late than never.
We would highly recommend you. Thanks for all your good work.
Sheryl Taylor.

Appreciated having lots of notice for showing and the feed back shorly after.
Always very accessible & in touch on a regular basis.
Very knowledgeable.
Feel very lucky to have both sold and purchased in such a short time span.
Donna Parks.

Although we were merely purchasing an inexpensive building lot once we actually made personal contact things moved very quickly towards completion of the purchase. We apprecicate how busy the sales agent was it was never a factor in completing the purchase. I'am sure this didn't occur without effort on behalf of the agent. Most impressive however was his judgement in knowing when to interject in negotations & when to allow them to proceed. Just a terrific agent all-round!! Thanks Greg & Judy Ball
Judy Ball sold us our cottage 10 years ago. After the unreal service we received then, there was no doubt that if and when we sold Judy would be the first call we made.
Although Greg was just starting out at the time we bought he now complements Judy in every way and he has acquired her customer skills as well.
The speed in which things happened ie: signs, MLS, web site, showings etc was astounding.
As an ex-salesman the Ball's to me are the ultimate in what anyone would want as their representative.
Ken & Susan Masters

We enjoyed our experinece with Judy & Greg. They are very professional but always personable.

Compared to other properties in our area mine was completed faster than I expected thanks to Judy and Greg. The property was sold for close to the asking price range. I would gladly avail myself of their services again or recommend them to family or friends.
Douglas May.

I found Judy & Greg to be very friendly, courteous, informative and also very professional.
Good Job!!
Fern Fauls

As this was the first experience of selling a house by myself I found Judy & anyone that came to see the house with buyers very good. Would recommend them to anyone.

Joyce Rennie
Our experience with Judy & Greg Ball has been exceptional. They know their market and their caring attitude in doing all they can for you far exceeds my expectations.
Their sales people and associates were so positive when meeting them at open house, I was sure we would sell our house.
The support staff, Sharon and Denise always let us know what was happening. Thanks so much.
Annita Betcke
Dear Judy, Greg, Sharon & Denise,
Thank you so much for the great effort you people did after listing our residence. A special thank you to Denise who did a great job of making up the brochures ( I kept one for our album.)
Another special thanks to Sharon, who kept us well informed after each showing, I really enjoyed our conversations.
Another special thanks to Judy & Greg. It was sure a pleasure doing business with the two of you. We had a few laughs & the humour was good. Sure glad we picked your company when we listed the house. Please drop in sometime and see our new home.
P.S. Thanks for the gift certificate to Chemong Lodge. That was very nice.
Thanks again, everyone.
Jim & Bernice Jacobs
Dear Judy & Greg,

I want to thank you and your associates for putting so much effort and patience in your selling of my house. I hope the new owners enjoy it as much as I did all the years I lived there. It is a big load off my shoulders ( and Don's to ) to have everything settled now.
Good luck in your future sales.
Thank you again and God Bless.
Connie.
Judy & Greg,

Greg was fantastic!  We believe we would not have been able to purchase our new home without his negotiation skills - awesome!!
The sale of our home was also painless and well executed, we appreciate his professionalism. We are thrilled with Greg and would toot his horn to others (already have) anytime.
Ian & Deboarah McRae.
To whom it may concern:

Please accept this as an unsolicited letter of reference for Judy and Greg Ball.

We wish to highly recommend Judy and Greg Ball as Vendor agents. As property owners we cherish our home. When we needed to sell it, we wished to ensure that we had the best representation available. To this end we searched and interviewed the top representatives of the three top agencies in our area. We compared their services, strategies, marketing resources, and recent past performance.

We selected Greg (and Judy) Ball to list our home. In a positive and professional manner together we overcame some challenges. We came to an agreement on sale price based on realistic market value and experience. We overcame a misunderstanding due to technological reasons regarding posting of photos on the web-listing. Greg promptly replaced a For Sale sign that disappeared from our lot. He and his support team responded promptly and well to all our calls and requests, such as editing the listing and modifying the marketing strategy, including the creation of an additional brochure.

Although our circumstances changed and we decided not to sell our home, in the eventuality that we wish to sell again, we would not hesitate to list again with Greg and Judy.


Lisa Beauregard & Jairo Torres

 
Shawn and I have been very impressed with Greg's  service.  Like he says in his personal profile, he does give 110% and he was successful in selling our 2 lots for us! We are 110% satisfied with his service.
Even though Greg is extremely busy, he was always available, always punctual and very accomodating. We would highly reccomend Greg and Judy Ball to
everyone we know!  And if we are to buy or sell in the future there is no doubt that we would use them again. 
Thanks A Million!
Shawn & Terri Reyner.
Greg & Judy
Before working here I had often seen and heard your names as one of the most respected real estate teams of Lakefield and surrounding areas. As I worked here and got to know both of  you and understand why you are both so respected and loved. Even though I did not work here very often, when I did I knew that if either one of you were in that day I would be greeted with a smile.
Thank you for everything over the past year, the experience, the welcoming attitudes and both of your amazing personalities. I wish you both a world of happiness, safety and health.

P.S. On behalf of my parents I would like to say thank you,  when they asked for an agent who could sell their property I said Greg & Judy!!!   
Lisa
We had looked at several condominiums in Prince Andrew Place prior to purchasing a condo. We were pleasantly surprised and impressed at how knowledgeable Greg Ball was with respect to the various characteristics of each of the condos we had viewed over the previous couple of years.
We appreciated the relaxed atmosphere Greg created on the two occasions we visited the condo we ultimately purchased. There was no sales pressure; Greg sensed that we knew what we were searching for and he allowed us to look and ask questions.
On one occasion, we asked Greg a question that he didn't have an answer for and rather than try and "create" an answer as many sales people (in our experience) do, he admitted he didn't know, but would find out for us, which he did.
Greg must have very good negotiating skills along with considerable powers of persuasion, he managed to extend the closing date to better suit our needs.
We were very pleased with the professional friendly service we experience and have no hesitation in recommending Greg and Judy Ball to anyone considering a Realtor.
George & Cheryl Peck.
Very satisfied with professional approach, questions and inquiries always responded to in a timely manner. Very strong customer service approach.
Jim.
Extremely pleased with service provided. They were available 7 days a week.
John Krabbe.
Greg & Judy always great to deal with. Their service is outstanding. I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.

Answered our questions promptly and returned calls quickly.
I would gladly recommend you to our family and friends.
Tom & Linda Birch.
Greg is very prompt in returning calls and keeping appointments. He was also helpful in discussing the comparibles on Clear Lake. I appreciate his knowledge of all the property in the area.
Peggy Randolph.

Greg & Judy  right from the first moment put us at ease with both selling our home & buying our new one. They were up front and honest in their assessment & advice, which we truly aprreciate.
Adam Stibbards & Nicola Lyle
We have now done 3 deals with Greg & Judy Ball & their team, and would not use or recommend anyone else. They are always prompt, courteous, and their advertising & marketing is second to none.
Certainly the best team in this area!
