Patrice met with us and was extremely knowledgeable, positive and upbeat from the get-go. She made us feel comfortable and confident listing our property with her. Again, an outstanding job! We felt that Patrice worked extremely hard for us. She took a potentially difficult property to sell, researched the property and marketed the daylights out of it. This enabled us to sell the property in a short time for a higher price than we first anticipated. Patrice and her team were able to take a potentially stressful situation for our family and guide us through the process effortlessly. They were constantly upbeat and positive making it a wonderful experience.

This May my husband & I had the good fortune to engage Patrice Gale of Royal LePage Real Estate Services to handle the sale of our home in North Toronto. At every stage of the sale, Patrice handled the details and negotiations with great professionalism, sensitivity and adroitness. It has been a pleasure to work with such an accomplished and experienced agent & the results including the staging were spectacular! I would highly recommend Patrice Gale to anyone considering the sale of their home in Toronto.

By: Sally and Joseph Marin (Lawrence Park)

We met Patrice when she helped our son and daughter-in-law purchase their first home three years ago. We were impressed with the professionalism and sage advice she provided to them. With her assistance, they prevailed in a bidding war without surpassing their budget. When we decided to downsize, we approached Patrice. We were initially uncertain whether we wanted a town home or a condominium. Patrice took considerable time to show us a number of properties in different areas of Toronto so that we would develop a sense of the market and our own needs. Once we settled on a particular condominium complex, Patrice notified us immediately of a unit that became available. We were able to purchase that unit at asking price and without a bidding war, despite the unpredictable and hot Toronto market. Patrice then helped us sell our home in Lawrence Park, sharing her contacts for a handyman, stager and designer. She developed a marketing strategy which was modified after discussion to accommodate our expectations. Our house sold in one day for $250,000.00 more than asking. Throughout the very stressful period of buying and selling, which for us was complicated by illness and other personal issues, Patrice remained a patient, caring and steadfast presence. Her professionalism, knowledge of the market and willingness to consider our input in decision-making was most appreciated. We love our new home and owe Patrice a debt of gratitude for helping us find it.

We knew from the beginning that we would want Patrice as our listing agent because we had met her on previous occasions at open houses and through the community-wide charity garage sales that she sponsors. As we had very little turnaround time to put our house on the market, it was important that our agent was able to keep a tight schedule. Patrice was well organized, professional and positive throughout the entire process. She really helped make our lives a lot less stressful. We highly recommend Patrice!

Patrice was a true partner in helping us sell our home. She worked with us to set the right asking price, recommended people to help bring the home up to optimum selling condition (eg. painters, carpeting, repairs, stager) and walked us through the selling process straight through the actual sale. We are completely happy with the sales experience.

We came to the Patrice Gale team based on a recommendation from friends. As a family with 3 young kids and 2 full time jobs, changing neighborhoods was a daunting task. What we found in the Patrice Gale team was deep, intimate knowledge of our target neighborhood. The content knowledge around important family factors like sidewalks, parking, house layouts, etc provided so much valuable information that we could not have discovered on our own. While we were focused on our immediate needs, the Patrice Gale team, specifically Alison Tigert, made sure we took a long term perspective and factored in what life will be like when our kids are older and considered properties where we can add value over the long run. The house we purchased could not be more perfect for us...and with the help of Alison Tigert's advice...under budget! Patrice Gale handled the sale of our home. Her army of contacts took a house that had been overrun by young children and turned into something that you would see in a magazine. We were shocked that our house had the potential to look that good! Our house was flooded with potential buyers and Patrice's team handled the influx of agents, notifications and eventually offers without breaking a sweat. On offer night we were very grateful to sit back and follow Patrice's lead as things were far more complicated than we would have thought. She was determined to get the absolute highest price for us and she did! Based on the other agents we met through this process, I can definitely say that we had the simplest, easiest house purchase and sale because we had the Patrice Gale team to hold our hand each step of the way. I would definitely recommend the Patrice Gale team!

By: Margot Melson (Davisville Village)

Patrice you did a fabulous job for us. Our mom was so pleased with the result that she burst into tears when we spoke to her afterwards. I'm so glad that you were on our side! Thank you for all of your hard work.

By: Rhonda and D’Arcy & kids (Bedford Park)

Patrice and her team found us a newer larger home in the area and sold our semi a few streets away. They are true experts in the market, giving us solid advice every step of the way. They understand the architecture and pricing of the homes in the area and guided us to what would best suit our large family. They were thorough in the evaluation of the homes we viewed and were extremely honest about the pros and cons of each home. When we sold our home they helped get us the highest price possible through staging, home preparation, promotions and negotiation. We couldn’t be more pleased with the results on all aspects of these transactions and would recommend Patrice and her team on the buy and sell side!

By: Wayne and Janette S. (Bedford Park, newcomers from Australia)

I can’t emphasise how much you contributed to our wonderful experience here in Canada. From the moment you responded to our first email enquiry you made the transition here from Australia so easy. And fortunately in the midst of all the turmoil of the job loss and then having to make the decision to sell our house etc. you were there all the way to guide us. We really value your friendship and do hope you will stay in touch and come stay with us in either Africa or Australia, wherever we are!

By: Kim and Trevor (Don Mills)

A "thank you note"....(accompanied by a beautiful bouquet of flowers) Dear Patrice, Trevor and I would just like to extend a big thank you for all of your help during our house hunting trip to Toronto last week - everything from all the helpful hints for living in Toronto to helping us find a house! Thank you again Patrice - your assistance and friendliness were greatly appreciated.

By: Analía and Guillermo Paradiso (Downtown Toronto)

Patrice sold our downtown home so fast!! We never expected it to sell that quickly but Patrice had an incredible marketing plan and it paid off. Thanks to Patrice we had great exposure in the market place. The couple who bought our home saw her Open House signs on a nearby street, came to the Open House and bought the house three days later. Open Houses work! We got well over our asking price too! Patrice walked us through the selling process with patience and great enthusiasm. We would certainly recommend Patrice Gale to anybody who is planning to sell or buy a home. It was a pleasure getting to know her.

By: Deborah and Alan Goouch

It was a pleasure working with Patrice. I owned two houses, some years ago, and the experience, when buying and selling them, was very poor compared to the way that Patrice, handled the selling of our house. Her ability to use the technology, i pad, i phone etc, made the selecting each offer, extremely fluid, and timely.

By: Cedric D’Sa & Shalini D’Souza (Don Mills, newcomers from United Arab Emirates)

Dear Patrice, We are writing in to record our thanks & appreciation for all your help, advice & patience in finding us a home in Toronto. Your professional attitude, dedication & work ethic has enabled us to get maximum value for our money. Thanks a lot for sharing with us the knowledge of the real estate business. It's made the buying experience so much fun. Best Regards,

By: The Millers (Leaside) - their house sold for more than $150,000 over asking.

Selling a home with Patrice Gale was a pleasure. She created a thorough marketing plan and executed it with professionalism in turn creating a lot of interest in our home. From replacing flowers before a showing to the incredible attention to detail with every document requiring our signatures, Patrice is honest, trustworthy and works very efficiently. Throughout the process, she kept us well informed, understanding the emotions that accompany selling your home. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Patrice to anyone seeking professional assistance buying or selling real estate. Thank you for an outstanding job,

By: Barb Lawson-Miller and Neil Miller (Leaside)

An e-mail comment from a client just after their house was listed… You are amazing! Everything looks so great. If real estate agents were all like you, I would be buying a new house every year.

By: Stephen and Whitney Kelsey (North York)

The condo is great…we’re really loving it! Thank you for all the work you did to help us find a new home! You really know this city and we were glad to benefit from your knowledge.

By: Amy Jackson & Mike Shugar (King West)

Patrice, thank you for all your help and patience. You found us the perfect condo and we just love it! Thanks so much!

By: Pierre and Chantale (Bedford Park – Yonge and Lawrence, originally from Ottawa)

We were relocated with the Federal Government from Ottawa to Toronto. Patrice helped orient us to the neighbourhoods near work and helped with school research and recreation programs for our children. We love our new neighbourhood and house and have settled in beautifully… thanks to Patrice. We would recommend her services to anyone relocating to Toronto.

By: Carol Hochu and Helmut Trupke (Don Mills)

Patrice helped us sell and purchase a new home and she negotiated very hard on our behalf in the most difficult of situations! She maintained her composure and professionalism throughout the negotiations always keeping our best-interests in mind. Patrice is a top agent and we would highly recommend her!

By: Carolyn Campbell and Fred Seymour (Leaside)

From the beginning Patrice made sure every step was done right! From advising us on home "staging" to putting together a great marketing plan, to post sales follow-up. Patrice didn’t miss a thing! We even set a price record for our street! And, she was a pleasure to work with!

By: Dr. Kambiz Kamian MD FRCS(UK) and Dr. Elaham Ahani Kamangar MD (Leaside, originally from Iran)

As newcomers to Toronto we didn’t know the right neighbourhoods, prices, schools, commute times, and more. Patrice is compassionate, knowledgeable, astute, and thorough. She helped us narrow down the right neighbourhood based on our needs and she helped us find a wonderful rental home close to a fantastic school. She helped us through mortgage financing and helped us purchase a house in the same neighbourhood so we didn’t have to switch schools. Our neighbourhood is extremely desirable and she negotiated a price at less than asking. We couldn’t be happier with her service!

By: Silvana and Andrew - Yonge and Lawrence

We wanted to move from Montreal back to our old neighbourhood in Bedford Park. Patrice educated us about the changes in real estate since we last lived here. She helped us with our mortgage requirements and counseled us as our needs evolved. Patrice’s knowledge of both the area and real estate made the search and negotiation process so much easier and less stressful! She is very professional and resourceful and made the challenge of finding our new home a pleasure. I would recommend her to our friends without hesitation.

By: S. Hoshizaki - Downtown Toronto

I met Patrice Gale when I was window shopping houses one Saturday. Her open house was one of many I visited that day. I was immediately impressed by her professional, yet friendly manner. I also respected Patrice's knowledge base of the listed house and the comparables in the area. In the past ten years I have listed and bought properties in the Toronto area and have found my experience in both listing and purchasing with Patrice as the most hassle free and focused.

By: Shane and Rebecca - Wanless Park & Downtown Toronto

Patrice helped us sell our downtown townhouse and purchase a home in Wanless Park. Patrice knew the type of people who would be interested in our home and targeted her marketing to those people. She had great marketing tactics including home staging, beautiful coloured photos and feature sheets, a pre-home inspection, advertising, signage, open houses and more. She arranged everything! With such great marketing combined with the perfect pricing and her dynamic personality – it’s no wonder our house sold so fast! On the buying side Patrice quickly figured out what we wanted and showed us beautiful homes. Now we have the house of our dreams in one of the best neighbourhoods in the city!

By: Wendy Templeton - Bedford Park & Don Mills

Patrice worked with me through every stage of the sale and purchase process. She patiently assisted me to view many properties to help me select the “right” new home. She brought in a team of experts to help ready my existing home for sale, including staging and renovating. She helped me plan a strategy for pricing and selling my property to attain an optimal price, and did a superb job of marketing my listing. She even brought me lunch on moving day! She was a pleasure to work with, and I was extremely happy with the outcome. I would have no hesitation in giving her the highest recommendation.

By: Bill and Sandra Hammond - Bedford Park.

If you are looking for that "Real Estate Agent Extraordinaire" then Patrice Gale is the one for you!! Her superb marketing skills brought prospective buyers from many different sources. She led us through the whole selling process, often holding our hands when we were not sure what to do next. She led us to stagers who in turn led us to the painter, the floor refinisher and even the mover. Patrice was always there to make sure it ran seamlessly. Bottom line, we sold very quickly and for a very acceptable price. All totally due to Patrice's many skills.

By: Justine and Michael (Listed house in Bedford Park and purchased in Cedarvale)

We were extremely pleased with the service provided to us by Patrice Gale. She was an invaluable source of assistance to us during the purchase of our new home and during the sale of our current home. In very short order Patrice was able to identify our needs and concerns and was able to respond accordingly. Throughout the buying and selling process we found Patrice to be very organized, calm, resourceful and professional. We were particularly impressed with her strong negotiation skills. We could not be more pleased by how Patrice represented our interests and look forward to doing business with her again in the future.
