"Buying or selling a home is one of the largest personal and financial decisions you will make and you need an experienced professional to guide you through the process. When you work with me, you can count on personal, attentive, patient service, excellent knowledge of the area, great negotiation skills and expert selling strategies."

"Perry appreciates honesty and is equally honest in return. She took time to listen closely to our needs and wants and found us a home in an area we had not previously considered, but have quickly fallen in love with. When we were ready, she sold our house for 21% over asking, and we are now happily settled in our "forever house"."

"Thank you for helping us buy our first home. You did an incredible job, and were always available and took the time to listen to our questions. In the end you were able to find us a house perfectly suited to our needs. We are so happy with our new home. You are a major reason our home buying experience was a very happy one."

- Rick & Lorraine - Cabbagetown

"Perry guided us every step of the way. She started by listening, then proceeded to develop a plan. The end result was a step by step strategy for success. We sold our home for 26% over asking, and were able to leverage that incredible sale price against the purchase of a new home in our dream neighborhood."
