Testimonials for Bud & Diane:

Carl Lucas, RIM & Bev Lucas – We came to KW with a long list of conflicting requirements for our dream home that we needed to close in 60 days. Through the expert advice and abundant patience of Bud and Diane we quickly homed in on where we wanted to be relative to work, shopping and play, shown the perfect house on day two and guided throught the offer and closing periods without a hitch. Nine months later we could not be more satisfied with our decision- in realtors and in home purchase.

Geoff Mcmurdo, RIM – Diane, Thanks for your help in finding the perfect house for us. We had a challenging situation with a tight closing on our Toronto home but somehow you pulled it off.
