Lisa is wonderful to work with, very professional and warm; often felt as though I was working with a friend. She is everything you would want out of a sales representative. Lisa was aware of the stresses of purchasing a home for the first time, and was always willing to answer the many questions I had. I would recommend Lisa anyone; she made the whole experience painless.   Rebekah and Marek


Just want to drop a quick note to say how thankful and appreciative my family and I were of Lisa McDonald and her team while we sold my parents home. 

We had a very stressful situation moving my parents to an assisted living home in a matter of days and Lisa jumped in right after we called and got us in the right direction for preparing my parents condo for sale and did she sell it! 

$50k over asking, which was awesome for my parents and the financial windfall was really needed! 

Thanks again to Lisa and her team, we know we will be back the next time we need to sell a home and this is our 5th transaction with Lisa!

Ted and Michele


Lisa McDonald and Lisa Kuryllowicz have done an outstanding job helping my wife and I lease our condo for the second time now. Both times they have managed the rental of our unit in a professional and timely manner. I highly recommend their services if you want the job done quickly and accurately.

Fred & Mia Kristan

I have recently sold my house on Gananoque Dr
(In 4 days)
Choosing Lisa and the HeartNHome Team is the best decision you will make while preparing to sell or buy
Lisa is honest, hard working
An awesome representative to handle your house sale in a quick efficient manner.
I also bought this very same house 11 years ago from Lisa.

It was an absolute pleasure working with Lisa. Not only is she incredibly knowledgeable, she is always prepared, responsive, and reliable. She always made herself available to us whenever we needed her and was always cheerful, kind and very compassionate. We LOVED working with her and would do it again in a heartbeat. Lisa is totally a CLASS ACT and I don't think there is anything she can't do! LOVE, LOVE, LOVED her!


It is an honour to share our experience with Lisa and her team, including Ada. It took us many months to finally decide to downsize and Lisa patiently waited and advised. She was professional, responsive, knowledgeable and took the time to be aware of us as individuals. It is very apparent to us that experience matters. Because real estate has changed so much over the years you do require someone like Lisa who is current and respected in the field. Our house sold in a day for way over asking and Lisa also helped us purchase exactly what we wanted in a day. You will not be disappointed if Lisa McDonald is your first and only choice as realtor.

Ray and Sandra

 It was a true pleasure working with Joy, Lisa and Jurate. They were considerate, proactive and responsive. Their combined expertise and experience ensured the property was properly priced and the selling process was efficient. I would be pleased to work with the Heart N Home Team again any time.

 The best way to find a realtor is through recommendations! It worked for us!
 We placed our trust with Lisa McDonald, Keller Williams Real Estate when we decided to sell our late Mother's home!
 Lisa is unique and won us over with her personable and professional communication skills, guiding us every step of the way and informing us of every detail through this process.
 Not only is she a "people" person, she is thorough and knowledgeable of the current market with many years of marketing skills and reputable experience.
 This marketing and exposure skill on her part alone has immensely helped sell our home in a short period of time and we were very pleased with the sale.
 We highly recommend that you can put your trust in Lisa McDonald to handle your requirements when purchasing or selling your home!

Hi Team....I was not sure if this person got covered in our last message. Joy.. she was great to talk to about the sale of the TH. Her insight of the TH after she did the open house was great. She as well as all of you were always there to answer questions and guide us. So, on behalf of Bill and I .. I would as well like to thank Joy for her part in the sale of our TH.
Thanks again....You all have been wonderful...~ Susan and Bill W.

We would like to thank Joy Paterson and the team of Heart N Home for an great job in working with our purchase of our home. we were lucky to work with Joy. We are first time buyers and were guided the whole way through this crazy process with such patience and professionalism. We are so new to all this and are small beans but she never made us feel this way. Joy understood the importance of getting us our first house and followed up on ALL angles possible to ensure that we would be able to attain our new home.
I would highly recommend her to everyone....~ Tamar and Paata

We would like to thank the team of Heart N Home, as well as Lisa McDonald for an outstanding job in working with our sale/purchase of our properties.
We always felt that you all had us as a priority, and were always able to be flexible to any of our requests.
Lisa, was always present when we needed her, and supported us in every way as we transitioned into our new property. we love her personality and kindness. she truly is an asset to your company.
Jurate was wonderful to work with, and was always prompt with any paperwork we needed to obtain.
We could not have had a better team.
We would use you again, and we would not hesitate in recommending Lisa and Jurate to anyone who would be interested in selling their property.
You both made us feel relaxed, and worry free in the way that the transactions between us went.
Thank you very much....Best regards, Bill and Susan

Joy did an excellent job finding out what is that we would like and helped us all the way. She was very friendly and did everything to satisfy our needs. We are now starting to pack and getting ready to move to our new home.....Thank you kindly, Cooby

The Heart N Home Team rented our house in a very short time at the asking price due to their hard work and great presentation. Thanks! ~ Chris L ~

To Lisa, Jurate and The HeartNHome Team...Thank you for making this crazy and hectic time in our lives easier to cope with. From start to finish, you have been extremely informative, supportive and hard working. As parents of three young children, we appreciate how understanding and accommodating you have been. Thank you for not only the successful sale of our house but for genuinely caring along the way. ~Noel & Tanya~

My husband and I we were so blessed that we had our agent Mrs.. Lisa McDonald and her team to support us selling our condo. I just want to add that it was sold in one month and we have to add that in our building there were plenty of condo for sale and a lot of competition.  Her dedication and professionalism it was great . Her team was supporting her 100% of the time and all came to a successful result selling our condo.  I would like to thank Lisa and her staff for all she did for my family making possible that we can move happily in your new house that we did purchase.....Thanks again, Mirela and Kosta

Hello KELLER WILLIAMS REALTY....We had a great experience with Lisa McDonald selling our condo unit. Outstanding job, will tell all my friends about Lisa McDonald.  The same for Jurate Barry, Client Care Manager, such a professional lady.  We can not finfd right words to thank Lisa and Jurate.  Best Regard.....K Dimroci

I was very pleased with the service provided by Keller Williams Real Estate. Providing me with many different home options within my budget and all in a timely manner. As a first time home buyer this process was made very easy for me....Thank you for all your help...Karim

It was a total pleasure to work with the HeartNHome team at Keller Williams in the recent listing and sale of my home.  Their professional and enthusiastic approach led to the sale of my property above listing price and within 3 days.  I recommend them highly because they are the best!...Albert M.

Lisa McDonald and her Heart N' Home team helped make selling my home a quick and peaceful experience. The marketing materials (both paper and online) were professional and eye catching, the team answered all of my questions in a timely, cheerful manner, and the frequent activity updates keep me organized and well informed.

Lisa strikes a perfect balance between offering her professional advice, and listening to her client's vision. Thank you Heart N' Home! I look forward to working with you again....Carrie

Lisa and Jurate were unfailingly patient and helpful. This was a stressful time, and they made it easier. Thank you....Carol

Lisa and the Heart N Home team were fantastic!  From the advice on staging our home to the selling of our home. Lisa and her team did a wonderful job.  Lisa even drove out of her way to help us find our new dream home!  I would definitely recommend Lisa and the Heart N Home team to all our friends and family...Karrie & Kevin

I am very pleased with Keller Williams and team member Lisa McDonald. I felt Lisa had my best interest at heart during the sale of my property. She was very supportive and professional and continuously provided feedback on the status of my sale. Her assistant Jurate, was always up to date on the status of all Lisa's clients and was quick to answer any questions I asked with patience and efficiency. This is the second time I have used Lisa and Keller Williams in my real estate dealings and would not hesistate using them agan...Linda L.

Lisa worked with us for over a year to help us find the home of our dreams. She really took the time to understand what we wanted and needed and when we finally found it, she sold our house in record time!  Lisa is professional, knowledgeable, and caring. Thanks Lisa for everything - we would not hesitate to recommend Lisa to anyone looking to buy or sell a home....Cheers, Anne

I was introduced to Lisa from another real estate agent from Flamborough. We were thinking of selling our house at the time but with the death of my sister she ended up helping us sell her house. I am so glad I was introduced to Lisa. With everything my sisters and our families were going through, she went out of here way to help us with anything we needed. The house was sold in just a few weeks. I would recommend Lisa McDonald to everyone. Thank you from all of us for helping us get through these times....MaryAnn

Lisa came highly recommended by my broker at our Keller Williams office in Kitchener, when I had a relative who lives in Mississauga in need of a Realtor. From my first conversation with Lisa I felt completely at ease. Her words were "you can rest assured that I will take care of your family as though they are my own", and that's exactly what she did. It was a more complicated sale, as it surrounded the unfortunate passing of the seller's husband. Lisa's patience and understanding of the difficulties in letting go during such a difficult time were unwavering and heartfelt. Her systems and models in effectively marketing a home generated an offer within the first 2 weeks on the market at 99% of list price!

In our business, people don't care what you know until they know how much you care. Lisa is an experienced, effective Realtor, and more importantly, she puts her heart in to taking care of her clients. Lisa is an agent anyone can have complete confidence in. Thank you so much Lisa for all your support! Stacy Charron, Sales Representative Keller Williams Golden Triangle, Kitchener, Ontario

In today’s busy and competitive real estate world, buyers and sellers can sometimes feel as those agents are solely focused on making the sale and quickly moving onto the next opportunity. Then there are the people like Lisa McDonald, a true professional who exemplifies all that is good about working with a real estate agent.

We recently sold our house and were looking for rental property in the north Mississauga area. Luckily we came across Lisa’s website and from there, it was smooth sailing as she worked with us every step of the way. From helping to source homes and responding quickly to my countless emails, to offering advice on a particular home we liked, and ultimately supporting us as we worked through the detailed tenant/landlord agreement.

Although the financial gains on this real estate transaction were minimal for Lisa, she treated the entire process as though it was a million-dollar listing! We’re now transitioning from our current home into the rental property, and having Lisa as our real estate partner is helping to make entire process so much easier.  Thank you Lisa for choosing real estate as your career.  We couldn’t have asked for a better agent…Lorraine and Chris Willson

From the first day I met Lisa at an open house, I instantly was drawn to her fantastic personality. Although I wasn’t looking to purchase at the time, Lisa was friendly and informative. She even had the CHMC first-time homebuyer package, which was very important to me as I was a first-time homebuyer. I felt no pressure to consider purchasing or sign up for emails. She even sent me a lovely hand-written note a couple weeks later, which is practically unheard of in today’s technology driven world. It took several more months after this first meeting to be ready to make the biggest purchase of my life and Lisa was really there for me when the time finally came. As I navigated my way through the home purchase in its entirety, Lisa was supportive, made me laugh and really enjoy the experience. Additionally, Lisa and her support team were extremely helpful (and very patient) which my many questions (and believe me there were a lot).

Thank you Lisa and the Heart N Home team for making my first home buying experience as stress-free as possible!!!...Audrey

It's been our pleasure to deal with Nevin from HeartNHome Team, Keller Williams Real Estate Associates to sell our property at 189 Galloway Road #43. I wanted to let you know that from our point of view everything went smoothly. Nevin did an outstanding job handling the sale of our house. From preparing it to go on the market not only that, the support we got from Jurate your Client Care Manager that was really outstanding. Thanks for doing an excellent job of marketing and selling our property. I am also working with Nevin to get my new dream home. If I ever hear of anyone looking to sell or buy the property, I'd be happy to refer them to you….Rahul & Rajni

On behalf of my husband Ross, his brother and the rest of the family, I want to thank you for your tremendous support during the sale of my late father-in-law's home. During the long process of cleaning up and preparing the home for sale, you proved to be far more than a real estate agent, and we are grateful for all the ways in which you so willingly helped us through this delicate and extremely difficult process.

Your commitment, enthusiasm, care, and professionalism before, during, and after the sale process itself were without compromise. Your pricing was bang on; your commitment to getting exposure for the house was amazing, and the fact that we were able to sell the house quickly, and a very reasonable price, attest to your skill and dedication.

Your willingness to go the extra mile for us is truly appreciated - thank you! Without hesitation, we would highly recommend you to anyone seeking an excellent real estate agent….Andrea and Ross

A big THANK YOU to Lisa and the Heart N Home Team. Not only did you successfully help us sell our house, you have also made our dreams come true with our new home. We anxiously await our moving date!   Claire & Frank

Once we decided to sell our house it became important to find the right sales agent. In discussing our pending sale with our brother-in-law and the need to find a competent agent he immediately recommended Lisa McDonald.

Our brother-in-law had previously dealt with Lisa as a real estate client and came away from the experience completely satisfied with the professional service, patience and attention to detail he received.

We decided to go with Lisa and we can re-iterate and reinforce without any hesitation the professionalism, knowledge of the market, attention to detail, patience and understanding that we experienced in this endeavour.

The project to sell our house was well planned - Lisa allowed the stager she works with to come to our home and make recommendations to enhance the presentation of our house. She also arranged for a pre-inspection report by a professional in the field to avoid any surprises that may mitigate against a potential sale. The marketing material was extensive and was also well presented in a detail and efficient manner.

The first open house created an enormous flow of potential customers resulting in two offers on the Monday following open houses on Saturday and Sunday. Because of the tremendous job in planning our sale our home was sold in three days.

Based on our very positive experience with Lisa McDonald we are in a position to highly recommend her as the agent you should consider to sell your home.....Terence and Diane Smith

Lisa....I want to personally send you a note to THANK YOU. The generosity you've shown with your time, knowledge and experience is just absolutely incredible! You're an awesome Realtor Role Model and I am truly honoured to have been able to participate in INGITE.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!... Cecilia Dutra

On behalf of my mother and myself, we wanted to thank you for all your efforts on our behalf in selling our home. You made the process as painless as is humanly possible when dealing with the loss of a family home of 46 years. Your attitude and approach was both professional and caring and greatly appreciated by my mother as well as myself and we look forward to dealing with you in finding a new place for us. ~ Reinhard Bittner

I wish to thank you for all of your hard work, and your professionalism. You made this process so much easier for my mother.  I cannot thank you enough for the integrity you showed throughout...especially with the rocky start we had finding the right agent,  as well as the few bumps that we experienced along the way with the encroachment.

All in all, I feel that you handled the 5 offers presented to us very professionally.  Again, I wish to thank you for not only making this process so much easier but fulfilling my mother's wishes by getting a quick sale for the best price.  Sincerely,  Claudia Dale

A big THANK YOU to Lisa McDonald and Marianne Power for all their help in assisting us in the sale of our first home. Lisa's knowledge of what needed to be done to sell our home, from price to staging, and what to expect, ensured a smooth sale. Their diligence and professionalism was top notch, and made the selling experience easier than expected.  Thank You...Jennifer and Glenn

When I first heard Lisa's voice I thought, "I think I'll enjoy working with her".  Then when I saw her eagerness to help our family find the perfect house, I was even more impressed.  In three short weeks, Lisa was able to find a wonderful townhouse for our family.  And I have to tell you, she had looked at huge number of townhouses for us to find the one we may like, and the one we eventually bought.  When I think of Lisa, I think of her cheerful voice, generous giving of her time, constant encouragement, and her ability to find the perfect house for us so quickly.  Thank You Lisa!  Esther & William

I just wanted to express my appreciation to Lisa McDonald - my fantastic agent who not only was instrumental in helping my sister and I to sell our condo apartment but she also found another condo apartment for me!  My hope was to remain in the same building and Lisa came through for me and found the perfect fit - in fact it's so perfect the paint colours are almost exactly the same as my old condo.  This was a very trying time in my life and Lisa helped make onerous task of selling and buying much easier.  Thanks Lisa - for a job well done!  Suzanne

Congratulations (belated) on your sale of the townhouse!  I'm so happy to hear things went really well.  I want to thank you once again for the kindness and understanding you extended to me.  I have the utmost respect for you and know that you are, not only a great real estate agent, but also a great person.  Your sense of integrity and sincerity certainly stand out.  I will absolutely recommend you, with pleasure and confidence, to anyone I hear of looking for a trustworthy real estate agent.  Thanks again Lisa.  I wish you well in life and your career and I have the sense that our paths will cross again in the future.  I am certainly hanging on to your business card for any of my own future real estate transactions as well.  Maureen

Dear Lisa....I want to thank you once again for assisting us on the sale of our home.  You truly made this potentially stressful experience one that was very relaxed, and rewarding.  The personal service you provided, during the sale was fabulous.  You were always available to us 24/7 and educated us to become confident in our decisions.  Even after the transaction was complete Lisa kept in contact with us on a personal level.  Lisa really does care about her clients and that shows.  As long as Lisa is in real estate she will always get our business - that's for sure.  John & Anna

Dear Lisa...Thank you for helping us sell our house.  Cullen and I enjoyed working with you on this joint project in spite of the fact that your "helpful suggestions" always translated into more work for us.  Although I always knew that selling a house would be a stressful experience (from all the stories and jokes I had heard over the years) I still underestimated how stressful it really is.  I am naturally assuming the seller wants to maximize on the price and speed in selling their house, as we did.  As you know when I originally contacted you to schedule an interview about possibly using your services I told you that I would be interviewing a few different agents before making my choice.  You had some tough competition however within 5 minutes I knew you were THE one.  I immediately felt comfortable with your friendly, easy going yet professional nature.  I think this is a very important quality from both perspectives, the buyer as well as the sellers.  You listened to our wishes and our needs and immediately helped us put a plan into action that we were all comfortable with.  This, I think is another important factor from the seller's perspective: when all parties are in sync it goes a long way in making the venture seem like a partnership and therefore somehow a little easier.  I'll always remember the time I phoned you in a panic because I couldn't find the "right" area rug for the front hall (one of your "suggestions") and you very calmly told me not to worry, you would try to find one and you DID!  Thank you.  The 2 days of Open House went as planned: I did my part by staying away and I know you did your part because we had 3 offers at the end of it.  WOW.  The combined efforts of the 3 of us produced a win/win result and that just can't be topped!  Cullen and I look forward to moving into the next phase of our life as we wish the new buyer looks forward to the same in our former house.  For you, we wish you the best of luck, continued success and happiness now and going into the future.  The Simpsons

Lisa...We want to thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU for your advice, assistance and patience during the selling of our home.  Although it only took 6 days from the point in time that we listed our home until we had a firm offer - this time seemed much longer and it was reassuring for us to know that we could call upon you at any time to discuss the process.  As it was our desire to have a quick sale, your team's up front advice helped us show off our home’s greatest assets.  We know that the buyers of our home, first noticed it on the internet, so the extra effort you put in to preparing the video was also critical to the quick sale.  We were obviously ecstatic, when two offers were received above our asking price, within a week of listing the property!  It is very apparent that you really know the real estate business!  Lisa, you are the Best!  Thank you.  Crystal & Steve

We would like to say how thankful we are for your incredible service.  As a young couple, looking for the first time into the real estate market, we were not only faced with a little trepidation due to our inexperience but also overwhelmed by the realization that we really did not know what we wanted.  It seemed the more we saw the more lost we were.  Along the way we met a few agents who seemed more interested in their needs then ours.  It was then a very pleasant surprise when we met you at one o the homes you were showing.  You not only treated us seriously (which some agents failed to do, perhaps due to the fact we were young first time buyers) but you were also very effective at navigating us towards realizing what we needed.  Instead of being told by you what you thought we should do, you found a way of letting us figure that out for ourselves.  This is what I must say made the final decision not only comfortable but at all possible.  Decisions on purchasing real estate will never be easy, but you made the process actually enjoyable, something I thought I would never say.  Lisa your patience, insight, experience and sincerity left a very strong impact on us and we will most definitely seek your services when the time comes for us to make another "move", and we most definitely recommend your services to anyone who wants a difference and better experience.  Andrew & Aneta

Just wanted to say how much we appreciate all the work and advice you gave us, you are definitely one of a kind a great real estate professional along with an amazing personality you definitely made our first house hunt exciting and fun which these days is rare, more people should lead by your example.  Greatly appreciate all of your help again and a 100% guarantee that we will recommend you to any of our friends and acquaintances.  Will keep in touch.  Thank You.  Dus & Szczotka

From the first meeting with Lisa we hit it off...Did you know we drive the identical car and we have similar taste in quite a few things, including Swiss Chalet.  I found her knowledge of the area impressive, her honesty was even more impressive and her sense of humour refreshing.  The feeling that I was helped by a friend rather than a real estate agent has already convinced me to back to Lisa, when it comes time to sell the condo...Cheers Lisa.  Luv Linda

Dearest Lisa...Well, what can we both say - you are fantastic to work with!  This was our first home purchase so nerves became a typical thing for us during this process.  However, we must say, that with your professionalism and your understanding you truly made this process enjoyable memorable.  You promised us that we'd find the house of our dreams, and you delivered!  And you delivered well!  You really devoted yourself to this project, you were attainable at any hour of the day and your experience shined through with every obstacle we met along the way.  Thank you so much for all your hard work and I look forward to working with you again in the future!  Thank You!  Magy & Martin

Just wanted to drop you a note to once again thank you for all your hard work in helping us sell our home.  I would absolutely recommend Lisa to anyone that is in the market to sell or buy a home.  She is reliable, professional and someone that you can count on 110%.  She was always willing to go above and beyond during the whole process.  She promised a quick sale and delivered with flying colors!  She is someone that you can consider a friend and not just an agent!  Vesna & Nesa

Thank you Lisa for your professional approach and great marketing techniques, which not only led to a quick sale but allowed us to participate and work closely with you and your team.  All the preparation and your designers input helped to prepare a knock-out virtual tour to bring visitors in our home to be just as pleasantly surprised of model-home like looks!  All the hard work you and your team invested in selling our home has come to fruition with multiple offers on the table and a late night "battle" to the finish line!  Your office worked closely with my wife to consider our son's daily activities and schedule showings around it.  We are delighted to have chosen you and your company Keller Williams Realty to sell our home.  We found new friends!  GPR

My experience with Lisa McDonald is at the highest level of positivity.  Lisa listens well to the stated needs of her clients.  It is from this "platform" that she was able to make the viable comments and suggestions which we received from her.  We were simply overwhelmed by two aspects of her character.  She was truthful and honest without being abrasive or brash and two, her reliability was at the highest level of professionalism.  Lisa made us feel that she had only one client on her agenda and it us; that is a very special feeling.  The intensity of her sales technique was profound.  In the short space of time that our house was sold, there were more than six groups of agents on site - a couple of hundred inquiries online and well over thirty walk-throughs.  It was wonderful to meet Lisa and we will be making as many referrals to her as is humanly possible.  Thank you Lisa McDonald for all you've done.  HLBM

Our experience with Lisa was, and still is, enjoyable and entertaining.  We first met Lisa at one of her open houses...and right from the beginning she was extremely knowledgeable and had a great personality.  Soon after she began sending us prospect matches and after a few short weeks we found our house, but we knew we had to act fast!!!  Lisa got a showing for us right away, and among multiple offers we got the house, no doubt due to her years of experience and good rapport with the selling realtor.  Since we are first time buyers she guided us through everything, and was able to refer us to some excellent contacts.  We would recommend to her family and friends in a heartbeat.  We close on January second and can't wait to turn this house into our home!  John & Christy

Lisa...Hi darling.  Even though things didn't work out last night, I feel good.  I feel good for a few reasons: I didn't get into a property that was going to cause me headaches later, I'm fortunate to work with a wonderful agent that isn't pressuring me to buy (ie: may lose a commission cheque), I like that we could walk away without the emotion of the property.  No property should be a must have for me.  It needs to be a business decision and fit into our specific criteria.  Thanks Lisa, I was getting a little worried when we got into the walls, reading the moisture meter.  I wasn't sure how this was going to pan out.  I kind of thought that perhaps there wasn't enough reason to walk away.  When you put all of the problem areas together, the best answer was to walk away.  Thanks for all of your help and I feel confident that you are on my side.  I love working with you.  I feel safe.  I know you wouldn't lead me astray.  Luv Kathy

I've always said it's the little "extra" in extraordinary that makes the difference and that's Lisa!  Lisa adapts well to change and is extremely professional and polished.  She has a great sense of humour and has a contagious laugh.  She was a pleasure to work with and I will work with her again when we decide to move again back to the West end.

Lisa always kept me up to date with what was happening and did an amazing job full stop with everything!  Right from the start when she first came over to my house from creating an excellent virtual tour to the time she put up the sold sign on my front lawn.  She made an extremely stressful situation into a wonderful positive one.  I just know we will always keep in touch.

Thank you Lisa and Melody for a truly professional and well done experience!  KG

I am a first time home buyer and had no idea what to expect through the purchase process. I knew what I wanted, but instead of taking me to the best option first, Lisa help to educate me on all the steps involved in the home purchase process. With her help, I now understand what to look for in a house and what to be wary of. Also, Lisa was able to refer me to a team of outstanding professionals for all aspects of my purchase -legal, mortgage, home inspection. I had a great experience and would recommend Lisa to anyone looking for a real estate agent!  Chris

Lisa, thanks for all your help!!!!!!! I always feel and know you are working in my best interest. It's a good feeling! I know I have a Real Estate Agent I can trust. Kathy P

That is Lisa, That is Who!
She’s a real estate agent
She travels near and far
Works a full day by noon
Miles and miles on her car
Her smile says her work is rewarding
To us she’s simply a dear
And the most amazing person we met so far this year!

She became our helper
We will always remember
She worked it out so we could live…
in Streetsville by September

With a contract at Tim Horton’s and the numbers to work out
What on earth would we two so?
Who ran back and forth to Elizabeth twice?

Watch for buyer’s remorse she said
It might happen to you next
And if you cannot sleep tonight,
Then call or fax or text

Matters not that she’s on vacation
For us she seems always on call!
She could be half way ‘cross the nation
And it’s like she’s across the hall

We came home on Thursday night,
And Lisa has sent us flowers!
And this was still a few weeks before
The Tannery was officially ours!

We would like to thank you
For everything you’ve done
We look forward to life in out new home
And you've made the process fun

She just wants to see us happy
We think she’s the nest
And please remember what’s most important
You will always be our guest

For us she’s more than an agent
We’ve become more like friends
And maybe if we’re good and maybe if we’re lucky
She’s take us for a drive in her Mercedes Benz!!!..Craig and Nori

Working with Lisa and the Heart N Home team at Keller William’s has been and continues to be an absolute pleasure. Lisa’s attention to detail was instrumental in selling our unique home. We highly recommend Lisa and the Heart N Home Team’s services as they are true professionals in the real-estate field….Cheers, John and Constance

We are so happy that we walked into one of Lisa McDonald’s listings one cold winter night! Lisa’s friendly personality and honesty made us feel comfortable listing our house with her. We have an 8 month-old baby and a large dog and we were nervous about having our house on the market. Lisa was always mindful of our family situation. By putting us in touch with the right people, she helped us prepare our house to sell quickly (four days) and with multiple offers. Lisa demonstrates a great amount of patience and takes the time to answer any question. Throughout the process of selling of our house, we felt that Lisa acted with our best interests in mind. Thank you, Lisa, for helping us sell our house. We are now ready to take the next big step…Buying our new home!   Christine, Patrick, Blake & Renton

I thought Lisa was a great Real Estate Representative. She was very friendly, approachable, sensitive, empathetic and knowledgeable. Lisa was readily available for us and responded quickly to any concerns that we had and tied up all the loose ends making it more of a stress free transaction.

I would highly recommend Lisa (again) to anyone I know of selling, or buying a home.

I also received a beautiful bouquet of flowers delivered to my home when the sale went through! They were beautiful and so very thoughtful!”…Elizabeth C.

“Lisa has once again made our move very comfortable. Lisa provided great insights on how best to show our house to potential buyers and how we could get our asking price. With her understanding of our needs, finding our next home was on target in a very short time. Lisa has made herself available to fit our schedule. I am looking forward to working with Lisa for our future real estate needs.  Nyembo, Philo, Melissa & Tessia

Thank you Lisa for your professional approach and great marketing techniques, which not only led to a quick sale but allowed us to participate and work closely with you and your team. All the preparation and your designers input helped to prepare a knock-out virtual tour to bring visitors in our home to be just as pleasantly surprised of model-home like looks! All the hard work you and your team invested in selling our home has come to fruition with multiple offers on the table and a late night "battle" to the finish line!

We have found Lisa to be an excellent real estate salesperson. We have listed with her twice and been more than satisfied with her professionalism. She is up front with you and very thorough. Her staff know their jobs and compliment Lisa's bubbly personality. …Harold and Sharon

Buying a house can be quite an overwhelming experience! Especially as first time home buyers we had no idea on how and where to start our search. Luckily for us, Julia came to our rescue! My husband and I never expected to find a real estate agent as wonderful as she was to us. Julia encompasses all the qualities that an ideal agent should be…she is kind, honest, punctual, dependable and very knowledgeable. Julia always looked out for our well being above her own commissions and sales opportunity. In every open house visit while my husband and I gushed over the houses, she made sure to look for any discrepencies in the home that might cause problems, and she always provided her honest feedback as to whether the house was a suitable option for us. At a moment’s request, Julia always managed to fit in a showing for any house we wanted to see, and was always the first one on the scene ready with the all the details of the home. She was always available when needed her, that at times I forgot that she had other clients! Julia prepared us well on the buying process and always kept our spirits up about finding the perfect home. At first we anticipated the whole house hunting experience to be quite a challenging and stressful situation, but thanks to Julia it turned out to be truly enjoyable time in our lives. As happy as we are that we found our dream home, we were a little saddened that our meetings with Julia have ended. That is how great her service was for us. She was not just our real estate agent, but felt like a close friend. It was truly a pleasure to have worked with Julia and to have had her be a part of such an important step in our lives!...

My husband and I are relocating to Canada from London, England. At the prospect of our new life in a land of great opportunity, we had nothing but wonderlust in our eyes. However that excitement was soon tempered by the daunting process of buying a house in a fast-paced and process-driven Canadian property market... and all from 3,500 miles away! It became clear that we needed help. Lisa McDonald and her team came recommended as people who would not only take the time to understand our requirements (which gave us confidence that our interests would be properly represented), but also as people who would genuinely care about our goals. Thanks to Lisa's proven real estate expertise, personal skills and network of contacts, we not only found our dream home but we also saved a lot of money in the process. We highly recommend Lisa and her team…. Caroline

My husband and I weren’t sure what we were looking for when we began hunting for our first home and we had a lot of questions about the process. Ken made everything simple and painless. He was patient and professional and answered all of our questions honestly.
Ken really paid attention to what we liked or didn’t like in a house so that each time we went looking we were viewing homes that were becoming closer and closer to that perfect place for us. We are so glad to have had his support during the purchase of our home and to still have his support and friendship today. Lori & Greg B

Our experience with the Heart N Home Team has been wonderful. Knowledge of the current market conditions helped us with our recent sale and purchase.
Always been available to answer our questions as well as put us at ease with any concerns we may have had. The HeartNHome Team have made this sometimes stressful process a truly great experience. We would highly recommend the services of this team to provide to any of our friends looking to buy and/or sell their home. ..Jen and Dave

Dear Heart N Home Team. This extra special thank you note sent to you today holds more appreciation than any words can say, for you’re among the nicest people I have ever known, and you’ll never be forgotten for the thoughtfulness you’ve shown. Thanks for Everything... Sylvina S

Lisa...I just wanted to congratulate you and your very special team that I have dealt with in the course of the past few months. I don’t think any deal goes without a hitch but you and your team were more than helpful. Ken Healey is the greatest as is Chris Dixon who both went way beyond their duties to help me out. Also I would like to thank Marie and Jackie who kept me up to date on showings and helping in any way they could. I have and will continue to recommend you guys to anyone who will listen. Again thanks to all. Darlene B.

The Heart N Home Team made our first selling experience a great one. Very responsive to our needs and concerns and made the process as non-disruptive as possible on our day-to-day lives. The support from all members of the team, activity reports provided, and creative solutions to maximize exposure were all part and parcel of the successful sale in a short period to time. As well, feedback from realtor and public open houses helped us better understand the market and our position in it, so there were no surprises in the end result. Thanks Keller Williams Real Estate for your commitment to client care and your friendly and personal approach. Regards, Nick & Meg M.

Dear Heart N Home Team
I want to take this opportunity to thank you for providing such a positive experience during the sale of my home. The “Heart N Home Team” is such an appropriate term, for the Keller Williams group. I have purchased 6 homes in my life and never have I come across a group of professionals so friendly and concerned for my well being. It was obvious throughout this timeframe that the “Team” sincerely wanted to help me, not just make money.

The entire team is extremely professional, knowledgeable, and genuine. Lisa McDonald, who is in a leadership position with the team, has obviously only hired staff who will fulfill Keller Williams goals in a sincere manner. She runs the office with extreme efficiency and care. Lisa was always there to answer my questions, and to help me out in any way I needed. My particular agent, Ken Healey, went above and beyond the call of duty while dealing with me. His calm, friendly manner, helped make a stressful situation go very smoothly. Marie took care of all of my technical needs throughout this process. She too, is extremely efficient. When Ken left my house after listing, Marie had the details and pictures of my home up and running within an hour. An hour and a half after listing with Ken, I had my first showing. Three days later, my house was sold with multiple offers… this in an economy of such uncertainty. I can’t forget Jackie, who phoned me multiple times a day to arrange showings. Her bright and friendly voice, proved to me that it truly is “a great day at Keller Williams”. Thanks also goes to Richard, who on a moment’s notice, was able to host an open house for me. Last, but certainly not least, is Chris Dixon, who is my mortgage broker. Chris explained all the details of credit to me, taking the time to make sure I understood everything. His calm reassurance helped me to feel confident that all would go well.

I know that there are many people involved in this team, who help to make this company run as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Thank you so very much to all of you, for truly making this the best real estate experience I have ever had. I urge anyone who is in the process of finding a real estate company to seek out Keller Williams for representation. Thanks again Heart N Home Team!!! Wendy C

"Lloyd and myself had a great time looking at homes with Ken, he is a very patient man as we looked at a fair share of homes!! But with Ken's help, we have found the perfect home for the 2 of us, soon to be 3!! Thank you so much for all of your help, and just so you know, we recommend you to everyone we hear who is in the market of selling or buying their home. Take care." Lloyd and Jodi

On behalf of my family, I would like to take this opportunity to send a message to The HeartNHome team for their professionalism in the recent sale of our family home. The angels had called both Mom and Dad, and all their children had established themselves elsewhere. What to do with their empty nest? We called Deborah Clerk of The HeartNHome team for guidance and advice. She urged us to prepare the house the best we could and made several constructive suggestions, including a pre-home inspection. This tool was invaluable in helping the family with their decision. When we called to say we were ready, Deborah was right on it! We signed the Seller’s agreement on Friday and by Monday we had received a fabulous offer on the property! This house was SOLD!

In today’s economic arena, this is almost unheard of! Through her expertise and networking, Deborah was able to find a buyer who saw the potential in our old family home. Other members of her team were also extremely proactive. In particular, Marie, who kept us in the loop of activity, informed us of all the viewings the property had and other bits of information that was fascinating to hear. Undoubtedly, this team is one that works together towards a happy ending.

We would absolutely encourage anyone who is looking to either buy, or sell, a property to contact The HeartNHome team at Keller Williams. They were wonderful to work with and put all our concerns to rest.

And now, the empty home that served this family for close to fifty years will now have a new family, a new heart and it is our wish they too will thrive in their new home.

Thank you again, and kudos to Deborah Clerk for a job well done!...Margot D.

The Keller Williams HeartNHome Team brought a great deal of expertise to us in our quest to sell our home where we had lived for twenty-two years. It was our goal to downsize and relocate to a smaller home. They assisted us in understanding the market in our district enabling us to set a reasonable asking price for our home. With guidance, we developed a marketing plan and sold our home in eight days at over the asking price.

The HeartNHome Team was invaluable in searching the area where we wanted to relocate. We were exposed us to a wide range of homes in our price bracket. Soon we were able to select the home we wanted and again the knowledge of the market enabled us to buy our new home at the purchase price we wanted and this in the hot pre-spring market.

Once we finalized our purchase, we continued to get valuable assistance to have our new home inspected by a home inspector and prepared for us after taking possession. Continued advice and recommendations enabled us to make a seamless transition to the retirement home of our dreams.

We cannot thank The HeartNHome Team enough for their continued support.
Sincerely yours, 
Coral Sloan and Ab Habib 
Oakville, Ontario

Derek and I can't thank you enough for finding him his first perfect home. You are amazing Lisa and we thank god we were in your hands. You have made my son's future a very bright one. You are the best!

Thanks again my dear...with love Derek and Gail

Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed working with the Heart N Home team.

From the first time we met I knew this was exactly what I wanted in a real estate agent – friendly, knowledgeable and 100% helpful! Of course, I was COMPLETELY won over when after realizing that I had a 3 year old son he brought over a children's deal with a sweet, sugary treat for him. I mean, who can say no to someone who appreciates the importance of sugar!

The HeartNHome Team made the sale of our home smooth and effortless. They were always available to answer a question and they were in contact with us regularly on every aspect of the sale. When we originally bought this house 4 years ago, there were times when I felt a little lost as to what was going on and what I was signing; whereas time was always taken to explain everything that was going to happen, or could happen, and what we were trying to accomplish.

In addition, the team continue to amaze me with their commitment to us as their clients. In October, we received an invitation to a Pumpkinfest where we enjoyed some hot apple cider, cookies and a free pumpkin of our choice! They also asked for my son’s birthday so that they could keep it on file. To me these gestures show that we are not just another sale in a long list of clients. We are a valued client and that means a lot!

All in all I give The HeartNHome team an A++ for all their help and for successfully selling our home. I will certainly choose them again when we are looking to purchase our next home.
Thanks, …Lorraine and Ellis

An easy and stress free experience. I used to live in Mississauga and Lisa has helped my husband and I buy and sell 3 properties, to date. It’s always been easy, stress free, and most importantly quick!

We live in Markham right now, and as you can imagine the commute into Waterloo is killing me, so we are now moving back to the West end this month. We had a lot of showings in our house and we sold it within 1-week. We were very lucky to have Lisa represent us as she has the emotional intelligence, education, and thrive for her work, that makes every experience a great one….Kim
