    I want to let Gary Glidden know how grateful we are that he connected us with Janet Pelltier for the sale of our home in Richmond Hill, Ontario. Based on how easy it was to develop a relationship with Janet, Gary did his homework; he cleared thought about our needs and determined the fit that would make for a smooth transaction. Though there were some bumps in the road (there always are), the information and advice that we received was amazing. In those moments that I felt anxious or concerned; there was a phone call, email or text that calmed my mind and allowed me to determine best next steps when information was shared. Lets face, we don't know what we don't know and rely on the expertise and experiences of others. Janet P and Gary G...awesome professionals that walk you through the real estate maze. We will be forever grateful

    My wife and I used Agent Proof Me to find a realtor to help us buy our first home. It was a smooth and painless process from Day 1. We've since referred two different friends to Agent Proof Me and they both experienced similar results. Will definitely use this service again and continue to refer.
