buyer-eva-chasiIt was great working with Alison Scott.  When I was ready to give up or felt bad about taking her everywhere in Niagara to find a home, Alison was there to give me the push I needed to stay with it.  I found my perfect home and thanks so much to the Salisbury Team and Alison for their hard work!   I know I will be very happy here!

Buyers - Ron & Brenda StogrenIt’s been 42 years since we made a move and we thought this might be a challenge, but Timothy Salisbury and his team of professionals made all the details of the move very smooth.  From the start, Timothy explained the buying and selling process, and helped along the way by giving us referrals for moving companies to contractors for renovation work.  We are well on our way to moving into our new home and couldn’t be happier with the Salisbury Team.  Thanks for a job well done!

Ron and Brenda Stogren

Jammie and Jennifer GreenwoodThe experience of buying a home with Tim and Lisa has been amazing. We had our ups and downs, however we were taken care of from the very beginning. The love, the passion and the genuine team always made sure to have our best interests at heart and always steered us in a positive direction to find us our dream home. I would recommend Timothy and his team to everyone! One heck of a team!  XO

Doug-Barb-DunnIt was difficult to find a home in this market, but we took the best of the best and can fix up the rest.  Jim was a great help but we haven’t seen the end of him yet as we need a man who knows the area and the trades.  Everyone was great to work with, process was smooth and thanks to all on the Salisbury team!

Doug and Barb Dunn

It has been a pleasure to do business with Tim’s team. It has been nothing but a positive experience. If we would do it all over again (not that we would want to for 30 years), we would do it with Tim’s team 101 times out of 100.  We found all the people referred to help us buy a home have been excellent. Sally is professional, personable and downright nice to work with. I appreciate all that the Salisbury team has done for us and look forward to being in our new home!

Buyer - John CernacI met Mr. Salisbury a few weeks ago regarding a piece of property I inquired about, and later purchased successfully. Throughout the process he seemed very professional, all the while being down to earth and a pretty fun guy to be around.  His pleasant demeanour and patience shined throughout and I would definitely recommend him to friends and family.

When entrusting your real estate decisions to the Salisbury Team you can rely on professional and clear advice by the entire team. I have thorough confidence in their knowledge, expertise and their customer service is exceptional. Home buying can be a challenging decision with many questions along the way, however, Tim and his team make the experience a comfortable and exciting one. Thanks again Tim!

As a first time home buyer, Sally took the time to explain everything to me in great detail, and in a way that I was able to better understand how the whole process worked. My calls were always promptly returned and Sally’s open availability was instrumental in being able to move quickly on the house I ended up purchasing. Different people that I could use with regards to home inspectors, lawyers, etc. were recommended to me. I compared prices and found that not only were the people suggested competitive with others, they were often better than the rest. Throughout the process of buying my first home, I never felt any pressure. I knew very little about the common red flags to avoid with respect to houses and was given a lot of advice to help me. I can’t say enough good about the Salisbury Team and I am very excited to move into my new home.

Tom Garrity

As a first time buyer, I appreciated how the information from Tim and Lisa was presented to me in a way I could understand it.  Lisa listened to me and my housing needs and kept me within my budget.  She found me the perfect home, one I didn't even see hit the market before she contacted me about it.  Thanks so much to the Salisbury Team for meeting all my needs and being very accompanying to my hectic schedule.

Seller & Buyer - Jason, Amanda & EmilyThank you Tim and your team. You made the experience of selling our house so easy and stress free, it was awesome.

Buyer - Mike Sandercock - Testimonial

Buying a home was a great experience!  Lisa Punch prepared me with all the details to know for the buying process, then showed me homes and Timothy was in touch, answering my questions.  Overall I was very happy with the service provided and thank the Salisbury Team for their expertise!  Very excited to be a home owner!

Alex MorganThanks to the Salisbury Team for their professional friendly service. It was great to work with Jim Gifford from the team. The mortgage approval process was hard, but I was able to find a home to my liking, which made the process worth it in the end.

Buyer - Turl Testimonial

We were thrilled to have Lisa as our realtor, assisting us in finding our final home.  As a retired Navy couple, we have moved many times and now don't plan to move again.  Lisa quickly picked up on our requirements and kept us focused.  There were some tense and anxious moments, but we were optimistic.  We believe we found "the right house at the right price in the right place."  It was a joy being with Lisa as she patiently guided us along this adventure.  We will always be grateful to the great folks at the Salisbury Team for all their support.  Not that I want any of my friends or family moving to St. Catharines, (!!) but if they persist, we will insist they use the services of the Salisbury Team.

Many thanks, Nigel and Sandra Turl (Monty the Shih Tzu enjoyed the adventure too!)

Nigel and Sandra Turl

Jim Gifford of The Salisbury Team was a great sales representative.  He was very helpful and answered all the questions I had.  Jim knew what I was looking for after our first meeting and took his time with me to find my perfect home.  The worst thing was being under pressure to find and buy a home before June 1.  I close May 16th and am moving in on the long weekend!  Thanks to Jim, Timothy and The Salisbury Team – it’s been a great experience.

Thank you Lisa.  We couldn't have done this without you!

Buyer - Patrick O'Connor & Emily HuttonThe Salisbury Team simply 'works’!   We had many questions as first time buyers and Alastair was always available to answer all of them. He was honest and frank.  It's been a year already and Tim just stopped by with dog treats for Charlie. How awesome was that!

Patrick, Emily & Charlie

The Salisbury Team was fantastic, personable and accommodating. Overall this was a great buying experience! Harley Cooper explained everything so it became a learning experience I won't forget. The explanations, on and for everything, made it relaxing and fun! The waiting was hard and I was anxious, but Harley helped to keep me grounded and focused. I’d recommend the Salisbury Team to any and everyone – thank you!

Catharine Halliday

The Salisbury Team was always working hard with my changing list of wants and needs. Especially my buyer associate Harley Cooper of the team. They even kept pace working with me while I was out of the country! Thanks to the Team for an overall good buying experience.

Mark Peter

Buyers - David and Yoko HurstFrom our first discussion to the picture in front of our first home, Yoko and I knew we were working with a professional and a team that wanted the best for us.  Timothy and his team cared for each detail and were there for us to answer every question.  I was blown away with how thorough and thoughtful the team was, it was like buying a house in the care of a family member.    Two weeks after we purchased our home it was my birthday.  Timothy was thoughtful enough to check up on how we were doing with our new place and he took the time to wish me happy birthday.  Tim made my day!

Yoko and David Hurst

Seller - Frank & Jennifer WilliamsWhat a great experience working with The Salisbury Team, and especially Lisa Punch who always made time for us.   Lisa was more than willing to set up appointments and travel wherever our search took us which included pretty much everywhere in Niagara and more.  From Grimsby to St Catharines to Fort Erie to Dunnville with prices ranging from high to low, Lisa and Tim always rolled with us as our property search evolved over time.

Always supportive, no pressure, with good advice along the way, we always believed that our satisfaction was more important to them than just selling us a house....we would absolutely recommend the Salisbury Team.

 

Frank and Jennifer Williams

Buyer - Kevin Cline & Aline BeaulieauLisa and Timothy were amazing throughout our buying process. We needed their experience and knowledge to navigate through this hot real estate market. They delivered!  Lisa “beat others to the PUNCH!" got our offer accepted fast and somehow with no competition!  We would recommend Lisa and The Salisbury Team to anyone looking to buy a home or sell.

Kevin and Aline

Buyer - Domen Petrobujes2Buying a house was easier than I thought it would be, but choosing the right agent took away the stress.  It was hard to find a house that was in good shape and clean, but Jim assured me I would find something and I did.  Jim was there to teach me everything I needed to know along the way.  Thanks very much to Jim, Timothy and the Salisbury Team.  It’s all done and it all worked out great!

Domen Petrobujes

Thanks to Timothy and the Salisbury Team! Sally Dollar was a great sales representative who was very responsible and always responded quickly to our calls. She made the process very easy for us. We ran into a couple of situations - we were sick as a whole family when we sold our house and again when finalizing the purchase of our new home, and our painter told us he wasn’t able to do our paint work. Of course, being sick had nothing to do with the efforts of the Salisbury Team! And since we weren’t from the area, Timothy quickly helped us with our painting problem. Stacey, his home stager, returned a call to us promptly and gave us a couple of leads... and our painting job is now set to go! We’ve had good contact with Timothy, he runs a great Team! We are very happy with our decision and look forward to living and working in Niagara.

Rob and Sandy Appleyard

The Salisbury Team and Sally Dollar were awesome from the start! We found Sally to be knowledgeable and honest. Being first time buyers, we appreciated the fact that she knew her stuff. Very accessible, whenever we called, she got right back to us. Also, the Salisbury Team set us up on the Buyer Prospecting Program, what a great feature! It saved us plenty of time. Whenever a house was listed in our price range with the features and benefits we wanted, it was emailed to us immediately so we could preview the home and all the interior pictures. We felt we always knew what was listed because of this service. Thanks again to the Salisbury Team!

Buyer - Andy Mackenzie & Sam DoniaAs first-time home buyers we found Timothy and his team to be great with us!  They made clear every step of the process and Jim addressed any concerns we had. Exceptional individuals and exceptional service!

Samantha Donia & Andy McKenzie

Buyer -Dennis & Janet GlazebrookJim Gifford of The Salisbury Team was terrific! He was honest, a great listener and showed us some great condo's before we bought the one that was just right for us. All the connections in The Salisbury Team network were a bonus as well, since we needed to get some renovations done.

Dennis and Janet Glazebrook

We found the Salisbury Team to be knowledgeable about real estate law, protocol, etc. It was challenging negotiating with the seller, but the purchase of our home was pretty seamless and a pleasurable experience with Sally Dollar, Buyer Representative on the Team. Thank you to the Salisbury Team for helping us find the perfect home!

Ken and Jenn Mercer

Buyers - TuckwellTimothy and his team are always ready and willing to help us with any of our needs.  They were always quick to respond, efficient and flexible. They have our best interest in mind and if any kind of barrier presented itself, whether small or large, they were always there being positive and reassuring.  They took the time to learn what was important to us and supported us through our property search.

On a side note, we have been working with Timothy for 14 years now and can't imagine working with anyone else when it comes to our Real Estate needs.  He is very trustworthy, personable, thoughtful and reliable.  Any time we know of anyone looking to sell or buy we immediately provide Timothy's name because we believe there isn't anyone else that knows the in's and out's of Real Estate like he does.

Thank you for everything Tim.

Buyer - Richard Dunne

We were very impressed with the Salisbury Team.  Timothy made contact with us many times, Lisa was great to work with and really knows her business.  After looking at a few homes, we found one for us and are very pleased.  The whole experience was great and we would definitely recommend Timothy and the team to others, in fact we already have!

Richard Dunne and family.

Richard Dunne

I see the potential in my new home and look forward to making some changes and keeping up to the great neighbourhood standard! I was surprised when I first started to look at homes and saw a lot of foundation problems. I thought I might go it on my own, but I’m glad I called an agent. Sally Dollar was easy to work with and she had a big part in helping me choose the right home! I knew I had to raise my budget to get what I wanted and Sally was of great assistance. I liked the whole team concept – working with Sally, talking to Timothy and the help from other team members. I know now with my work and busy schedule, I could never have done this on my own. Thanks!

Dan Marwick

buyer-pino-alessandra-lorelliWe are very happy and satisfied with our purchase of this property.  Alison was on the hunt every single day for new listings that would match our needs, so we had quite a wide range of options before making our final decision. We appreciated Alison’s and Timothy’s advice when we asked for it.  They were both very diligent and professional.  Thank you to Timothy's team for their great work with us.

Pino and Alessandra

Buyer - Myers, Wayne & MyrtleThanks so much to Timothy for quickly picking up our referral from Barrie area and working with us here to buy a home.  Jim Gifford made the process a pleasure with his easy going personality.  We were from out of town and he was so accommodating to work with our availability.   The team’s astuteness and co-operativeness made this a simple process for us.

Wayne & Myrtle Myers

Buyers - Van GelderThanks for the great service!  Alison Scott found us the perfect house and was great to serve us quickly and efficiently.  Timothy was always in communication making sure things were going well.  In the end, it was a seamless process and we are very happy to have found this home!

David and Pam Van Gelder

We sold and bought with The Salisbury Team. They have great team communication! We have no suggestions for improvement - why reinvent the wheel? As mentioned in our overall experience, Sally Dollar is the best! She was always ready and willing to go shopping! The worst thing now - our shopping is over! Thanks to the Team!

Larry Hoffleith and Brenda Hobbs

buyer-adam-amanda-fletcherWow! They know their business! The Salisbury team just helped a family member buy their first home and now it was our turn!

Thanks

Buyer - Brad and Tiffany  (Blacklock)We are so happy overall with the Salisbury Team and especially Lisa Punch for finding us our first home. Thanks for everything guys!

 

Brittany and Brad

The best comment I can make about the Salisbury Team is the way in which Sally (the Team’s full time Buyer Rep.) exhibited a calming influence and was patient in helping to resolve my issues concerning the purchase. I was able to find a place that fit my needs, was updated to my tastes and wants and my children wanted me to buy. Thanks for everything!

Sellers - Marty & Maureen Butts 002We bought our home from Timothy Salisbury about 17 years ago and Timothy has been in contact ever since. We’re so happy that we have sold our home and moving to the northend!! Timothy along with his staff and network of professionals made this a very easy and stress free process. Overall a great experience.

Maureen and Marty Butts

Buyer&Seller - Ukroenz & KarrWe bought our 1st home just over 3 years ago so we thought it would be easier this time having experienced the process. Boy, were we wrong!  It ended up we really needed Tim and the team to walk us through both the buying and selling process.  After a few sleepless nights, we now have our dream home and have sold ours.  We really can't say enough, Tim was great, patient and took care of everything.

Lindsay Karr, Chris Ukroenz and Maeve

Buyer - Serlyn DemesaThe Salisbury Team was so helpful and provided critical information that helped me successfully purchase my 1st home. Special thanks to Alison of the team, her patience was appreciated.

Serlyn Demesa

We've worked with a few different real estate agents in the past and working with this team was completely different. We felt confident immediately after meeting them; confident that they were well versed in this competitive market, experienced as a team, and willing to devote the time and energy into finding us what we wanted right away. The process was painless and the
service was outstanding. Never did I once feel like they were in this for the commission.

Trisha Tisi and Zac Scott

I have nothing but good things to say about the experience we had buying a new home and selling our old home with the Salisbury Team. Harley Cooper was a pleasure to work with during the buying process: he listened carefully to our family’s needs, treated everyone (including our kids!) with utmost respect, gave us excellent advice on how to negotiate a fair price, and made himself entirely available to us so that the purchase was made with the minimum amount of stress on the family. Don’t let Harley’s age fool you! He is a consummate professional, a sharp observer, and an extremely caring individual.
