My experience with buying my home was very positive in every way. You were always at the ready to see to my every need. It was especially helpful to someone who was a first time home buyer. You were very helpful in directing me to the people I needed help from ie: lawyer, Ins. agent, contractor and so on. You even suggested places to buy furniture. Thank you for being there for me. You were very important in making my life here in Almonte a positive transition from living in busy OTTAWA.

Thank you so much.

During the process of selling our home, Joanne kept us up to date on the action taking place. This was most reassuring. It was a pleasure working with her.

Larry and Margo Smith, December, 2016

 

I have purchased several homes over the years, in several cities. My last experience with a realtor has by far been the best. My wish list for my home in the part of Ontario was unorthodox, incorporating some unusual spaces. Joanne's gift is her ability to listen and to present homes that were not only in my price range but also could potentially meet my requirements. She drove me from town to town, always patient and generous with her time, and realistic in her assessments of each house. She made it clear that there was no hurry, whether we had to view one house or one hundred, we would continue until we found the perfect home.

I would recommend Joanne to anyone without hesitation. She made the stressful house buying process a pleasure.

This past year, my wife and I had the very good fortune to meet Joanne Beaton and to work with her as our Realtor in our search for a new home.  As a retired couple, we were interested in leaving the growing congestion of urban life in Ottawa and moving to the relatively quieter environs of Almonte.  Joanne knows Almonte and the neighbouring communities, having lived and worked in the area herself for over thirty years.  This knowledge and experience is something special that she was able to draw on to assist us in defining and refining our housing goals, and then helping us to find the home and location that best met our needs and desires.  Patiently, and with a good deal of professional insight into the pluses and minuses of the listings that attracted our attention, Joanne guided us through over a dozen houses before we finally found the home of our dreams in Carleton Place.  At this important juncture in our search, Joanne was effective and efficient in helping us to negotiate and finalise the sale, and to provide us with a referral to a local real estate lawyer to complete the necessary legal documentation.  Typical of Joanne’s genuine concern and care for our needs, her assistance has carried on well after the sale and we have benefitted greatly from her reliable network of connections with local tradespeople and services as we settle into our new home and community.  We would without a moment’s hesitation highly recommend Joanne Beaton to anyone looking to buy a home in Almonte, Carleton Place or any of the surrounding towns and villages She is dedicated, competent and personable — all the qualities you want in a sales representative

Joanne went above and beyond the call of duty right from the first meeting. As first time home owners (buyers), we were conflicted, apprehensive and unsure of the buying process. Joanne put us at ease and made us feel comfortable through each step of the process! We could not have asked for a better or more informed Realtor. Thanks to Joanne we are now in a home we love and in a truly fabulous neighbourhood.

Cynthia McBride & Marco Durepos, November 2016

 

I had the pleasure of meeting Joanne while searching for my first home. Joanne helped to make the daunting experience of being a young first time home buyer much less stressful. As I was looking for an older home, her knowledge of the area and its homes was of great value. She took the time to really understand what I was looking for and helped me to find exactly what I wanted.

Thanks Joanne!

Seamus McManus, October 2016

We met Joane at a house she was selling. We didn't have a realtor at the time. Once we met her she seemed like she really wanted to help us find the perfect home for us. She's a very caring person and was willing to help in any way she could! The area we were looking at buying was a bit far from her home base, but that didn't stop her. After a few visits to homes, we finally found one and kept comparing other homes to it. Joanne was very helpful in guiding us through the buying process as it was our first time. She put the ease in of a potentially stressful process. To this day (a year later) we are still chatting and keeping up with each others busy schedules. We would recommend Joanne to anyone looking to buy or sell. Thanks Joanne!

Lindsey & Justin Corkum, October 2016

 

Joanne was a  wonderful help to us as we had never bought a home before. She was SO patient at explaining everything and found us our perfect retirement home. We gave her a long list of "must haves" and she delivered 100%.  Joanne worked very hard for us and we couldn't be happier.

Deb & Dale McVean, September 2016

 

I have worked with many Realtors in the past and by far Joanne Beaton has been the best. She is patient, kind and gets to understand your needs in which home suits you best. She makes sure she has enough time scheduled for each client, never rushes you. There is never pressure to buy a house quickly. We would definitely use Joanne again and will refer her to any friends or family to buy or sell.

Ruth Burgess & Eric Bylow, September 2016

 

We had the pleasure of working with Joanne Beaton for both selling our home in Franktown and buying our new home in Almonte. We got her name from our niece who said she was amazing to work with. So we thought we would give her a try.

We previously had our house up for sale with a different realtor for about six months and it didn’t sell.

Joanne sat down with us and explained everything very thoroughly as to what she does to make us happy and satisfied. She always kept us informed about every little piece of information she received. She had lots of open houses, and even posted pictures of our open house on facebook. She was very patient and understood when we had a few hiccups along the way.

She was always happy, honest and always had a smile on her face.We would highly recommend Joanne and have already given her name out to several people looking for a realtor.                                                   Andrea LaBelle, June 2016 

We have moved 26 times in our married life and it is a pleasure to have worked with Joanne Beaton as our real estate agent. Marlene and I were away in Florida when the purchase of our condo in Almonte was transacted where our daughter represented us. We had no apprehensions at all due to her competence, loyalty to the client and open disclosure of potential conflicts of interest.

She knew the condo well and provided unbiased honest advice and assistance. A true professional!

Having Joanne as my exclusive Real Estate Agent has been truly wonderful.  She understands what her clients want and she strives to please her clients  For my case, she has been an inspiration, mentor and guides me on my journey to become a successful Real Estate Owner. I am so glad that we met by chance and am looking forward to working with her for many years to come.

Andy Swant, November 2014

 

As as a first-time home buyer I was both anxious and intimidated. I came into contact with Joanne through a friend living in Almonte, who gave me her contact information. I contacted Joanne and we exchanged information. I gave her the broad strokes on what I was seeking, and within a day she had an amazing line up of properties for my consideration. I was picky, so I made arrangements to see some, but again was nervous due to this being my first home. Joanne listened attentively and noted likes and dislikes and was involved to the point as if she was the making the purchase. She made me super comfortable and was not pushy in any way. We scouted properties, she listened and with every view, drew me closer to the home for me (which I purchased and am extremely happy and thankful!)  I have and would recommend Joanne Beaton to anyone interested (first time or not) in purchasing a home as their perfect choice.

I was a renter and found I had to move.  Panic set in, but a quick call to my bank and Joanne Beaton quickly had me on track to buy in the condo where I rented.  Within two days, Joanne had located the perfect space for me, and whizzed the right offer to the seller which was immediately accepted.  So, here I am, six months later, settled into my forever home.  Never happier.  Thanks Joanne for bringing your smarts, tenacity and attention-to-details skills to my quest.

Susan Gibson, November 2014

JOANNE BEATON should be your next Realtor because…

Quite honestly…

When it came time for us to downsize and sell our family home of 25 years we were given the advice to find a local realtor.  We set up a day of meeting several to talk to them about their approaches, expectations and methods to selling homes.  Some seemed disinterested; one was entirely aggressive while others all seemed to follow similar practices.  However, there was one in particular that did stand out from the others.  Joanne Beaton.  During our meeting with Joanne she was very personable and we felt an instant connection.   She took very detailed notes not only about the house but about us, as people with feelings about our home and what we wish to happen.   She was refreshingly encouraging with honesty and a frankness we sometimes needed to hear.  

During the months of listing she remained in continual communication with us, thinking outside the box and trying new ways to show our home and have others see it the way we do.  Joanne never tried to over stage or over sell us or others.   She has a welcomed calm demeanour that I needed to tap into on more than one occasion.  She walked us through the many steps, gave us sound advice and was an excellent resource throughout the entire process.  Our home sold when the market would have said otherwise.  We never thought it would sell that year.   She is one of the most conscientious working individuals I have met in a long time.  Her dedication to us and her field is commendable in itself. 

It is our pleasure to recommend Joanne Beaton to be your next realtor.  Quite honestly, our gratitude and this letter does not seem to be enough for everything she has done for us.  Quite honestly, she is a breath of calm fresh knowledgeable air in the midst of what can be completely unpredictable, emotionally draining and utter chaos.  Quite honestly, you would be very fortunate to have her on your side.

Marcel & Theresa Robillard, December 2014

 

I had the pleasure of working with Joanne Beaton when I sold my condo in Almonte. Pleasant to deal with, Joanne was professional, ethical & had my best interests at the front of all our dealings. She was always available when I had a question or concern.  Between the "agents open-house" & the many viewings I felt that my property was getting excellent exposure, and was very satisified with the closing contract.  I would not hesitate to recommend Joanne to anyone who was in the market to buy or sell their home.

Barb Fitzpatrick, December 2014

 

Not for a second do I hesitate recommending Joanne Beaton as a Real Estate Agent. In 2014 she has helped me in my move from B.C. to Carleton Place into a condo, unseen by me!  Joanne did a lot more than required and is competent, kind and very thoughtful.  I will be forever grateful for all the help and thank her with all my heart.  Thank you Joanne!
