Analena was tireless in helping us find the perfect condo. She listened to our needs and wish list, and took us out many times, until we found just the perfect condo. She showed us different areas, and different types of condos, and was always extremely professional and helpful in getting us all the information we needed to make an informative decision. When we finally found “the one” she was tireless in the negotiations with the other agent and the owner, to get us to the best final offer. During the process, due to her expert knowledge of real estate laws and her keen eye, she made sure that there were no oversights. She was always reachable and available when we had questions, and made the process so much easier for us. After we had purchased the condo, Analena helped us stage our home, had a professional photographer take photos of the home, and she then had a gorgeous colour brochure put together. The “For Sale” sign went up, and she then pursued leads, followed up with agents who brought their clients in to view the home, and, within days we had several offers. Again, in the negotiating process, she was professional with the other agents, and when it came to the final “crunch” we were delighted with the final offer! We had a chance to meet with the realtor representing the purchaser of our home, and he, on more than one occasion commented on Analena’s professionalism and what a pleasure it had been to deal with her. We are now settled into our gorgeous condo, and really could not even imagine having gone through this process without Analena’s expert assistance. She is a lovely person, she’s kind, smart, professional and is able to deal with the toughest agents. Having seen her in “action” through the negotiating process, we truly believe that she thrives in that environment. We have since recommended her to very good friends, whom she also assisted with the purchase of their condo. We have absolutely no hesitation to recommend Analena as your future realtor. She will get you to where you want to be!

Analena is a hard working individual and real estate agent. I chose Analena from the wide group of good agents available as she has the know how and drive to sell and purchase homes. She knows the market and what best to do. I used Analena in 2014 and 2015 to buy and sell various properties in different areas. She was an exceptional agent and her knowledge proved to help in many situations we ran into. People forget that transactions don’t always run easy and you want someone experienced helping you. You want the best price for your home and the best value for your purchase. I feel comfortable recommending Analena for anyone needing an exceptional Real Estate Agent.

Analena was my real estate agent of choice and I had sought her out because of her impeccable reputation and because she had written a wonderful book, “Getting to Sold”, with her views on how to sell your property, which I had the pleasure of reading. From the get go – Analena was ready to do everything within her power to make sure that the property looked top notch and that the listing was designed to be informative, attractive and compelling. She succeeded admirably in this task. The mettle of a real estate agent is tested not when a sale goes right, but when a glitch occurs which is no one’s fault and it muddies the brilliant “sold in one day with multiple offers” that Analena had been able to achieve for my property. A freak leak occurred into the den from the terrace because of a sudden thaw. It ruined a wall and a sale, which fell through just before closing. It was a heartbreaker. Analena took matters into her own hands and liaised with the appropriate parties to get the leak repaired and the property back on the market. This she did as soon as it was possible. When everything was perfect again the property went back on the market and Analena sold it in four days. The day before closing it was revealed that the mortgage for the purchaser was not in place and they would require an extension, even though the financial waiver had been signed. It took another two weeks to achieve the closing. Analena remained positive, supportive, forward thinking and followed through at every turn. She made an almost untenable situation one that resulted in a satisfied client, (myself) and a satisfactory sale to the purchaser. She really worked diligently above and beyond the call of duty. A situation like mine is not common, is not really anyone’s fault but it really showed me Analena’s true colours. She is a remarkable real estate agent who will work for you and with you in good times and not so good. One thing for sure, having the best in your court will always be to your advantage and the best is Analena Mandlsohn!

Our initial experience with selling our home was terrible to say the least! We attempted to sell it ourselves by listing with a For-Sale-By-Owner type brokerage, but after over a month of unbearable stress and frustration, we decide to list our home with Analena. From the initial consultation to the closing of the sale, Analena was nothing but amazing. The services she offered were incredible: professional cleaning, staging, photography, open houses, etc. She spared no expense to get our house ready, and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. Analena is diligent, extremely knowledgeable and authentic. She listens well, individualizes the services she provides and pays close attention to detail. We felt so comfortable with everything in her capable hands that we even took a much-needed vacation while Analena handled everything. She provided us with every resource we needed, and within a week our house sold well over the asking price! Analena’s knowledge and experience truly made a difference, and we have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her to anyone looking for amazing service and results!

While trying to sell our home on our own, Analena had called and asked if she could come and view our property without representing a client, we agreed. After walking through our home we talked at length about why we had made the decision to sell privately along with the pro's and con's. Her knowledge of the market along with her forthright honesty ensured that we would keep her name as a possible agent if and when we decided to interview for the position. We took our home off the market after 3 months, and vowed we would find someone we felt met our needs in the spring when we would try again. Analena kept in touch without any pressure throughout the fall and winter. We decided a Pre Spring market might be a good step, so called upon the "local specialists" to interview along with a few others, 4 in total. Analena's personality and honest values won the position. We knew that the market had very little inventory and homes were selling quite quickly, so Analena went to work and advised to be prepared for anything. One day on the market, multiple offers and we were sold! We were extremely elated that Analena's negotiating skills won us the price we received. So now the hunt for our "new home" begins. Prior to listing our sale, we had ventured out on our own to try and find the perfect area to resettle. Analena began gathering details, and we started the viewing process. On a number of occasions her husband Larry would accompany us and we were fortunate to be able to bounce our queries off 2 professionals. Analena and Larry partner well together while sharing the same business values. We felt secure in knowing that their combined knowledge and experience would find us our perfect fit. Though inventory was low we finally found our "new home" and in the process have been blessed in finding new friends in Analena and Larry.

The service and personal attention I received from Analena was exceptional and unexpected from a Realtor!

We were very impressed with Analena’s professionalism, personal attention, and marketing strategies. The entire process of selling a home can be so overwhelming and stressful, but she walked us through every step of the way. She was always available for questions, and we received her personal attention almost on a daily basis, which made us feel like we were her only clients. Her patience and expertise in this field are outstanding and commendable. Analena is a first class, high caliber, realtor, and it was a pleasure working with her.

Analena was the consummate real estate professional to partner with in the recent sale of my townhome. In the often extremely stressful process of buying/selling a home, Analena is a tireless advocate for the interests of her clients. She brings her professionalism, positive attitude and sense of humour to each step of the sale.
