I am thankful I went with Martha Whitton of Royal Lepage Locations North, Brokerage in selling my condo. I had planned on selling the unit myself because I knew of investors that would have liked it. I paid for my own appraisal and would have sold the property at the price the appraisal came in at. I changed my mind and phoned Martha whom I had done a couple real estate deals in the past with. Martha came in with a strategy and evidently it worked; my place was sold in 6 days at 19% over asking, and 26% over what I would have taken for it if I sold it myself. There were 23 parties toured through the property in 6 days and 17 offers were placed on the table. It was very amusing. Thank you Martha.
Today we received the lawyers statement covering the sale of the farm in Loree and I would like to extend, to you, my thanks for your kindness to me re: your visits to Toronto and keeping me up to date covering the procedures. We were always confident our interests were uppermost in your mind and for that we were very thankful.
We sold our house under rather trying circumstances this past year and throughout the process Martha Whitton was an empathetic agent with strong negotiating skills. Our first buyer’s house inspection turned up a thoroughly unexpected buried oil tank in our front yard. Legal issues, second offers, and a lot of digging later, we then unexpectedly found ourselves in a multiple offer position. Martha remained a place of calm which helped us to successfully ride out the storm to a successful sale. Martha’s persistence, relationship skills, and negotiating capacity were much appreciated. Kevin and I were both very satisfied with Martha’s service as a realtor.

I have worked with Martha Whitton as my agent on three real estate transactions in Collingwood over the past five years. The greatest advantage to working with Martha is that she has always looked after my best interests. Martha kept me on track to meet my wishes within my firm spend thresholds. She arranged for me to view a good sampling of properties to show me the options available to me and gave me her valuable honest opinions. After house inspections were completed, she arranged for professional consultations of the issues highlighted during the inspection. Martha also provided excellent post-sale service by providing contacts in Collingwood for various services and renovation work. She has made these real estate transactions pleasurable and stress free. It has been a true pleasure to work with Martha. I will continue to recommend her to friends who are considering a purchase in the Collingwood area.
My husband and I were referred to Martha and have had the pleasure of working with her on three occasions. Martha found and helped us purchase a property in Collingwood about 7 years ago. She was a pleasure to work with, extremely knowledgeable about the area, patient, and provided terrific advice. When we were in the market again this past year we called Martha right away. Again, she provided invaluable advice. She also hired a fantastic photographer to really showcase our property for sale. We sold and then bought our new property shortly thereafter. With Martha’s expertise what could have been stressful, was a terrific experience. Thanks Martha! We could not have asked for a better Agent and highly recommend you to anyone in the market.”

We have worked with Martha on the purchase and sale of two country properties. Her experience with rural properties as well as her knowledge and recommendations regarding the experts in wells and septic systems, has been invaluable.”
We have had the pleasure of working with Martha on five separate real estate transactions, and were very satisfied with all. On one particular transaction, we must have been one of her more “challenging” clients of all time due to multiple direction changes – but, Martha remained calm, professional and supportive to the very end. Martha delivers the full package of knowledge, experience and connections combined with the “soft side” of supporting clients through what can often be a roller coaster of emotions. We don’t plan on moving again anytime soon, but if we do we would work with Martha again without hesitation.
