We have just sold our home with Mary Ellen Weatherhead, Makey Real Estate Inc. Brokerage. Greeting Mary Ellen at our front door she instantly became like family with her friendly smile and knowledge of the real estate business. From coming in with her crew painting and staging our home and putting all the final touches in place our home sold in a few short days. I have never had a realtor offer the services that she offered. Mary Ellen is truly one of a kind, not only as a realtor but as a kind caring woman. She will have only you in mind when you list your home with her. Be sure to enlist her as your next real estate salesperson. As her slogan says “The Weather You Can Trust”. A special thank you to her lead painter/designer, Neta Wilkinson

As many know, selling your home is a stressful process. The stress level we had anticipated we were going to go through was brought way down by Marry Ellen’s attitude, kindness, friendliness and desire to really help. When we decided to sell our home we were very apprehensive with the prospect of getting the wrong realtor. After we had talked to two realtors, although very professional, we were not sure they were right for us. By chance, we had decided to call Mary Ellen and asked her to come and see our home (we had already done the same with the previous two realtors) and, to discuss with her our options and selling strategies. While giving her a tour of our home, Mary Ellen was quietly making mental notes of all the features of the home and how they should be presented to potential buyers. When the tour was over she sat down with us and once she started explaining how she intends to present our home and what her strategy would be, we knew that with Mary Ellen we had made the right choice. Starting with her ideas for timing on the market, agreement negotiation, commission and ending with the online media presentation and home staging, everything seemed to come together and everything just simply made sense. Mary Ellen exceeded all our expectations in the selling process of our home, she went over and above her responsibilities and saved us thousands of dollars. She works with a team of professionals and it shows in how your home will be presented on the market. She is a professional that adds to her portfolio honesty and kindness attributes that are rare to find. Communication between you and your realtor is very important and with Mary Ellen you will understand the dynamic of the market at the time of your listing. We could not be happier with the result of our collaboration with Mary Ellen and we strongly recommend her to everyone that is looking for a fantastic realtor. Although we had sold our home, which we really loved and where we had made so many beautiful and loving memories, we are very happy we chose Mary Ellen to help us through. Thank you Mary Ellen for everything you have done for us!

Thank you Mary Ellen for your professionalism and support with selling my home. You made the whole process seamless especially during a Pandemic lockdown! From our initial visit, you had a plan in place. Your assistance in staging and marketing my home paid off and my house sold successfully in less than 3 weeks at the best market price. I would highly recommend Mary Ellen as your Realtor – she will not disappoint!

Mary Ellen is an absolute dream to work with! We were nervous entering the market during such a busy time (and with a baby on the way!), and Mary Ellen made it such an enjoyable process. We had no idea what kind of a market we were getting ourselves into. Finding a house turned out to be a longer process than we originally thought, but Mary Ellen kept us laughing and our hopes high that we would find out perfect home (and was she ever right!!). You can tell right away that Mary Ellen has a passion for what she does, and she goes above and beyond. Mary Ellen staged our house beautifully before pictures and walk throughs began. Throughout the entire process we felt safe and taken care of by Mary Ellen. We trusted her and often asked for her opinion on what she thought a house was going to sell for, and if it was worth it. I couldn’t imagine going through this process with anyone else! We are so happy that Mary Ellen helped us find our forever home to raise our family in.
By: Mark & Kelly Gale
As we all know, moving is a highly stressful time in our lives and Mary Ellen helped us through it every step of the way. Her willingness to go above and beyond will never be forgotten. Not only did Mary Ellen provide us with a storage unit and U-Haul for our use, but she also staged our home beautifully to appeal to today’s market. She consulted us as a family and made sure that we were comfortable with any suggestions she had for improving the value of our home. She explained her reasoning and let us have the final say in choosing Plan A, B or C. We still felt like a huge part of the process entrusting our home to Mary Ellen and her expertise 100%. We understood we had to leave our emotional connection to our home “at the door” and let the professionals do what they do best. This meant Mary Ellen was able to sell our home to the right person, for the right price at the right time! (Only 8 days on the market!) Now we can move on to the next exciting chapter in our lives and a young and growing family will occupy this home and we couldn’t be happier ??

Mary Ellen provides excellent service, along with going way beyond what is required to help sell your home. She provided painting, staging and use of a storage locker for three months in assisting us. A dedicated hard working individual who really cares about her clients, who will go that extra mile for you. We sold our home above list! In this crazy market we were able to purchase a home on the first attempt to offer and we were happy with the price we paid. We would not hesitate to recommend Mary Ellen Weatherhead to all our friends and family. Highly recommended!

I have just arrived in Canada and I lack a lot of experience and Canadian records that allow me to open doors with banks and in this case with real estate companies that allow me to rent a comfortable house or apartment that meets the conditions to host a family of 4 members, thank God we found the service of Nesar Ahmed who helped us find a home with these characteristics, he also has a great gift of service, has a vocation of service. We will always be grateful for the support received from Nesar and blessed will they be what they can count on in the future with this support from Nesar. Thank you Nesar and congratulations on the quality of your work.

After close to 15 years of relying on Mary Ellen for my taxes and other business matters, I was positive she’d be just as diligent in real estate ! After 25 years of being a landlord it was time to sell and it was pleasure to place that sale in her hands. I cannot say how out the park she hit the ball for me. Not only did she stage my somewhat dated duplex, she had some extra painting done, added high-end linens and even brought it many of her own personal items to really show the potential to the over 25 viewings! She only once mentioned the amount of behind the scenes work she put into the sale answering over 75+ inquires online. On a personal note, Mary Ellen is very pleasant to deal with... and she smiles. A lot. Lol. Several times I texted her at somewhat odd times and she always got right back to me with an answer. After one week on the market, under her command and expertise, I had several offers above asking price. Her negotiating skills were a huge asset, gaining a price that I never would have thought possible... and that’s a pretty amazing feeling !! I cannot say how pleased and grateful I am for Mary Ellen’s knowledge, experience and ease of salesmanship... all for 1.5% commission ! I highly recommend her for all of your tax needs and all real estate inquiries. Extremely happy client here!!

When Mary Ellen came to give me an idea of what I could sell my home for I knew I had found someone I could trust to take care of the sale of the home I had lived in for 32 years. She was extremely professional and competent but with the compassion that helped me navigate the emotional turmoil that came with putting my house on the market. She went above and beyond what most realtors do. She arranged for a dumpster, rented a storage unit, purchased paint, and arranged for inspections that would cover any possible delays in the sale. She had a vision of what the house could look like at its best and made simple suggestions that would enhance the flow of each room. She helped pack and rented the truck to transport everything to the storage unit. Mary Ellen along with her very talented stager brought all the items needed to show my home in the best possible light and staged it beautifully. She then worked with me to arrange showings around my work schedules. Mary Ellen worked tirelessly to set up appointments for the showings and answered all my questions with patience and understanding. When it came time to sit down and go over the offers ( there were multiple) Mary Ellen did not do anything to influence my decision but allowed me to ask the questions that I needed answered for my own peace of mind so I would make the right decision. Mary Ellen does all of this for a listing commission rate of 1.5%. I would highly recommend Mary Ellen to anyone who is considering selling their home. She’s a very rare find and I now consider her not just my real estate agent but also a friend. Thank you Mary Ellen for all you have done for me. Jennifer Tyrrell

Mary Ellen is not only a top notch realtor, she is one of the nicest people I have ever met. She truly cares for her clients, is always available to answer questions and concerns. In preparing the house for the market there is no detail too small for her attention. She is a hard working and honest person, and I felt very comfortable leaving everything in her capable hands. I would strongly recommend her if you are ever in need of a realtor.
By: Ava, Mia and Denise, Woodstock
My girls and I are so grateful for having Mary Ellen work with us to find a home. Mary Ellen is attentive to detail and left no stone unturned in our search for a home. She tailored our search to exactly what my family needed and anticipated other details in a home we would want. She is a very caring individual and made my family a priority. She was very efficient and was on the ball when it came to viewing listings that would suit our needs. You will not be disappointed working with Mary Ellen. She runs her business with integrity and puts her clients first.
By: Samantha Foster, Tillsonburg
Our experience with Mary Ellen was absolutely fabulous. I have known her for all of my life and when it came time to look for a house she was the obvious choice for a realtor. I recently moved back to Woodstock after years living on the East Coast. I couldn’t believe the cost to buy a home and the competition involved. Mary Ellen was patient, present and always listened to understand. Her expertise assured me that obtaining a home in such a market as this, was going to be achievable. She always made herself available regardless of the time of day. She was quick to secure us viewing on homes we were interested in, and always advised usfrom a logical perspective. Rather than trying to push us towards a home, she took the time to ensure we found the right home for us, that would fit our long term goals. I am grateful to have had her by our side throughout one of the biggest milestones in life. We would absolutely, without hesitation, recommend Mary Ellen.

She was very open, forthright and caring. Mary Ellen even went so far as to come to my home to pick up Isla (Border Terrier dog) and take Isla back to her place to babysit while other agents were showing my home!

"What can I say about Mary Ellen that probably hasn't been said already a thousand times over. Amazing is the first word that comes to mind. From her professionalism in how she treats her customers and clients to her kind and caring personality, Mary Ellen did her best providing us with her knowledge and enthusiasm. She not only met but exceeded our expectations when it came time to sell our home. Mary Ellen goes over and above any other real estate agent I have met to help her clients get the most selling value. The extras she includes - such as helping with the cost of painting, pre-home inspection, storage to declutter, staging - doesn't even come close to the effort she puts forth into building the relationship with her clients. We still can't believe the amazing job she did. We kept joking with her to "she me the money" and guess what.... she did that and more. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."

“We are both first-time sellers. Mary Ellen was fantastic at outlining the process, offered realistic assessments of the market and of both houses. She went through with clarity of all the potential fees, obstacles and expectations. That is when we knew we had the right person for the job, that the sale of the house would be smooth, efficient, and successful with Mary Ellen. And it certainly was. Mary Ellen brought to our homes; Honesty, experience, professionalism, knowledge, kindness, and diligence. Whenever we had a question, Mary Ellen was readily accessible and willing to talk, offering many valuable suggestions. She went out of her way to be helpful. She was quite flexible and willing to work around our tight schedule, too, which made things so much easier for us. Our house sold with an amazing offer all because she was on top of the pre-building inspection, staging, appropriate listing information, photos and videography. The number of showings we had in 9 days exceeded expectation, over 50. The entire time it was a real pleasure to work with Mary Ellen. We would strongly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a truly outstanding real estate agent."

My experience with Mary Ellen was nothing short of spectacular! I have, over the years, dealt with a number of real estate agents, and I can honestly say that Mary Ellen’s care and expertise were on a level I have never experienced. 10+++++++!!!!! Mary Ellen listed my mother’s house, who is in care, and within a week it sold over asking price. More than just that… I live out of town, and Mary Ellen and her husband were amazing in their assistance for every step, including little fixes in the house! Outstanding, absolutely exceptional attention to every detail. I know that people often wonder if testimonials are accurate, so I will stand behind these words and tell you, ask Mary Ellen for my number if you want to hear it straight from me!

"Buying a home in Canada was a dream with my financial constraints. Brother Nesar gave me the right directions and kept updating with the market state, which triggered me to take a decision and act on the right time. He helped me to view the properties in various places (Welland, St Catherines, Hamilton and Brantford) and offered a good insight about each property that I am interested, Thank God, I am able to buy the house. Without the limits, he offered the additional help for other services for my home. I wish him all the best and be a very successive realtor for Canada"

After struggling finding a suitable apartment for many months in a different city without a mode of transportation, it was a blessing crossing paths with Nesar Ahmed. It had become crunch time as our current lease was ending, Mr. Ahmed worked quickly, and efficiently finding us multiple, more then suitable rental options. He was a pleasure to work with throughout, always reliable and ready to answer questions and take action where needed. I would definitely use his services again as well as would recommend him to anyone looking for excellent services. Salwa Elsaigh

After a few months of searching for an apartment, for me it was a blessing from the Almighty. I received an unexpected call from a real estate agent named Nesar Ahmed. He offered me his services to find a rental apartment and thanks to his dynamism, energy and gift of service I was able to visit around 15 properties, all in excellent condition and high standards of habitability. Since he contacted me, he has been there providing solutions to my needs. His hard work, kindness and dedication allowed me to find a beautiful place to live comfortably with my wife and two children. God bless Nesar for his excellent gift of service and caring with which he does his work. Congratulations and big thanks to Nesar.

Makey Real Estate Inc., Brokerage – what can I say? Nothing short of a game changer. I was naturally hesitant switching brokerages. Would this brokerage meet the needs of both my clients and me? Would the Broker of Record provide me support, possess superior knowledge and impeccable integrity? Would I obtain support with social media, technology, etc.? Well, I can assure you that moving to Makey Real Estate Inc. has surpassed my expectation on all fronts. I highly recommend Makey Real Estate Inc., Brokerage to any new or seasoned realtor looking for a supportive environment. I was first attracted to Makey Real Estate Inc. because of the commission split offered. I’m now fully committed to Makey Real Estate Inc. because ofthe commission split and, more importantly, support that I’ve never experienced before. Call me if you are contemplating a move to Makey Real Estate Inc. I’d be happy to share my experience.
