Thanks for being an excellent real estate agent, from start to finish. Simon & Sayaka truly understand the meaning of excellent customer service and that is a hard “quality” to find these days with people in any industry. I can assure you when I sell my apartment in the future or hear of anyone who is looking to buy or sell their property, your name will be at the top of my list. (Buyer: D. H.)
I found that Simon was easy to work with. His honesty and hard work really helped when it came to selling my Condo. He was precise on the pricing and accurate with his timeline from the time the home hit the market. I found that he put in a lot of effort to communicate with me and often checked in to make sure that I was comfortable with everything that was going on and if I ever had a question, he gave me all the time I needed to help me get an answer. I would highly recommend Simon as your Real Estate agent. (Seller: K. M.)
Words can’t describe our first time home buying experience. Without such professional, courteous and knowledgeable realtor, Sayaka Takahara, our journey would not have been such a fantastic time. Sayaka made us feel like we were her top priority. She educated us about the differences first time home buyers are facing and guided us all the way through to help us find our dream house. We recommend Sayaka Takahara to anybody that is in the market to buy or sell a property. You will not only be super satisfied but also receive the feeling of being listened to and a top priority to her. Thank you so much for helping us find our first home!. (Buyer: Daniela & Dawid & Teddy）
Simon is an excellent realtor. As a first time home buyer, he educated me on what I need to know about the buying/selling process, identified what I was looking for and ensured I got the best deal. He was very knowledgeable and very patient. He worked hard to find me a place which suited my needs. I would recommend anyone who is interested in buying or selling a home to Simon. (Buyer: Louisa L.)
For those who do not know, Sayaka handled the sale of our old place as well as the purchase of our new place. Minoru, Kiki-chan (the cat), Nero (the ferret) and I are delighted with the way things went, and we’re very happy in our new home.
Simon is a hard working realtor…he is down to earth and knows he is working for me and makes it a point to remind me when I forget…I highly recommend his services to anyone looking for an honest, knowledgeable realtor who will value your opinion while working hard to sell your home. (Seller & Buyer: M.C.)
We called Sayaka on 26th September, 2012. We were in our new place on November 23rd. That’s what I call “service with a smile.”
If you are looking for a realtor, call Sayaka. She is the absolute best.
Thank you for everything, Sayaka. （Seller＆Buyer: T.D. & M.F)
Simon is a professional at what he does. His exceptional knowledge and experience in the real estate business is only part of what makes him a great agent. When called upon to deliver on deadlines and product knowledge, he has always met and exceeded expectations. With the market fluctuating the way it has been, it’s easy to make emotional judgement calls and find yourself constantly worrying about what is the right decision. Simon provides a very comfortable and informative environment where he makes sure that you understand where you are in your decisions and provides ample information to help you make the right decision for you and your family. There is no pressure, but lots of support. Simon will work hard to help you achieve your goals. Thank you for putting me first.(Seller & Buyer: W. H.)
Please trust this young woman. She is the most patient realtor I have met since I came to Canada. Also, her professional knowledge can help you reduce your expense when you are going to buy a property. She deserves your trust. (Buyer: L.F)
Sayaka is one of the most professional realtors one could ever hope to meet. She made the entire process of selling our old place and finding a new place easy. She not only managed to get us well over our asking price for our old property, but also managed to find us a new place which was perfect for us. And she did all of this in only 2 months! Sayaka knows her business very, very well. She is well-prepared, efficient, and always willing to go the extra mile for her clients. She gives good, timely advice, is easy to communicate with, and great at solving problems. I have already recommended her to people whom I know who are thinking of buying or selling. She really cares about her clients. When you deal with Sayaka, you are dealing with a person who considers you a “life-long” client and friend. She is a first-rate realtor and wise counselor. I highly recommend that prospective buyers/sellers give their business to Sayaka. They will be pleasantly surprised at how smoothly the process can be accomplished. Thank you for everything Sayaka. yours, tom (Seller & Buyer T.D.)
Thanks for all of your help Simon. I really appreciate it and based on the way you’ve treated me during this process, I would refer you in the future. (Seller: Rory H.)

Hope we have more deals in the future. See u around!
(Fellow REALTOR: A.S.)
Hi Simon, I’d like to take this opportunity to express my deep appreciation for all your help. You are very professional, very friendly and very diligent. I certainly will keep in touch with you not only as my realtor, but also as a good friend. If any of my friends want to buy properties here, I definitely will refer you to them. Again, many thanks! (Buyer: J. & M. W.)
Thank you, Sayaka! My girlfriend and I have been helped by you with your professional advice and guidance. You have tremendously devoted quality time and effort to this pair of first home buyers through the whole buying process. That really helped us to eliminate the frustration most first time home buyers would encounter. Besides, you have helped us to negotiate a good deal by lowering the seller’s proposed price by almost 5%! My girlfriend and I have finally found ourselves a new home for starting out our new page of life within our affordability. We definitely will not hesitate to recommend you to our relatives and friends when they need helps for finding new homes! (Buyer: L. L.)
Simon helped me purchase my first home. Simon was honest, knowledgeable and industrious. I appreciated his dedication and friendly approach in educating me in the buying process, making the process less stressful. Simon got me the place I wanted and made sure that I was making the right decisions each step of the way. I could see the extra effort he made to ensure that I was a satisfied client at the end of the day. I would refer or use Simon’s services again. I have already referred a friend. Simon – Thank you again for helping me happily meet my home buying objective. (Buyer: A. B.)
My house was sold in a week’s time at over 98% asking price and I am very pleased with the result! Sayaka works extra hard and made it a point to represent me like she was the one selling her own house. Sayaka is not only knowledgeable but also attentive to my concerns and was prompt in providing me with updates. Sayaka will do what she can to exceed your expectations. More power to you Sayaka and I will definitely recommend my family and friends for house sales and purchases over to you!
(Seller: M. A.)
Simon was very good to us. He sold our house with no problems and for a very good price and found us a replacement that works with our needs in a very timely manner. No complaints. I am very picky and a bit difficult to deal with but Simon did a good job! Thank you for everything you have done for us. I would recommend Simon to anyone for their real estate needs (Seller & Buyer: Linda & Kerry C.)
Sayaka sold our home for about 99% of our asking price and in like less than a day!
She is also amazing with her follow-up work.
Any risk we were concerned about, she would already be working to eliminate them.
THANKS Sayaka! (Seller & Buyer : D.C.)
My family has already moved into our new home on June 19th. We are all very happy about it. Without help and assistance from you, this would not happen this fast. On behalf of my whole family, I want to thank you again for everything. (Buyer: Yvonne & Jay M.)
