My greatest pleasure in the real estate business is welcoming a new friend into my family of clients (now friends) so I can help them make their dreams come true.
I do this by listening carefully and thoughtfully to what motivates my clients, understanding their hopes, wishes, frustrations and dreams for their respective futures, I am able to ensure their real estate transactions consistently reach a happy and satisfying conclusion. When my clients are happy, this makes all my efforts so very worthwhile.

Gib sold our business property in the town of Zorra in Woodstock, ON on Aug 27 2015 . He did an amazing job and also did more than he was expected to. We felt that he had our best interests in mind and was really looking out for us.

Gib help us to be in our new home. Not only did he sold our previous home at good price but helped us an easy move in . We found both Gib and Mary very helpful .

We are returning customers of Gib's. We were so pleased with our first experience - we used him the second time the need came up. We have also referred him to family whom was also very happy with his efforts and results. We will never look for another Realtor, as long as he is working...we are working with him!
Ryan A.(Buyer, 2015)
Excellent. Committed. Informative and knowledgeable. I feel like he is genuine in nature and has the best intentions for his client.

We recently bought and sold our home with Gib and Mary Heggtveit. It was a very time sensitive transaction and we were concerned as to how long the process would take. Gib immediately did a cost analysis of our property and arrived at a price that put our home at the top end of the scale for the area. Even so he was committed that our property would sell quickly and began his program of staging, advertising, listing and sign exposure. The result was a showing on the first day of listing, and an accepted offer two days after the sign went on the lawn. Gib and Mary were a pleasure to work with and always took any concerns we had and addressed them accordingly. We were always kept updated and any advice or insight they gave us from their years of experience was always correct and appreciated. Knowing we were dealing with professionals like Gib and Mary was comforting, but they made us feel more like friends that clients, and made a stressful time much easier to deal with. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an honest, straightforward and dedicated Real Estate Team. Don and Arla Turner, London

Gib understand your needs and work along with you get the best possible house you want. To me he was approachable and understandable. He is honest and works hard for you to get the deal done. In short a reliable sale person. I would rate him 5 stars
Diana and Endel H.(Buyer, 2012)
We really appreciated Gibb and Mary's caring and attentive approach to working with us when we purchased our home and an investment property. They listened to what we were looking for and showed us homes close to our specific requests until we found the one we purchased. We love our home and thoroughly enjoyed working with Gibb and Mary!

We listed our house twice, each one year apart with the same real estate agent that we purchased our first home with. While this agent did her best, we had no results. We were ancious to sell our home and needless to say, were feeling a bit discouraged. When we discussed re-listing with Gib after our first listing agreement had expired, we were blown away by the professionalism, expertise, and hard work you put into re-listing our home. Between the home-stager, the road-side flyers and the marketing assessment, we knew right away that we were in good hands. The experience of Gib’s sales effort was superior. He always ensured we had effective, quality showings and he always “went to bat for us” when it came to our tricky schedule. It is not always easy to show a house when you both work full-time and have two noisy dogs who don’t like strangers in their house. Most of all, we appreciated his knowledge and confidence throughout the process. He always stayed positive and re-assured us that while it may take time, things will fall into place. After two years, countless showings and some sleepless nights, we finally sold our home for a price that we were very happy with. Now, we can move on to building our forever home. While it might not seem that who you list with to sell your home matters – let us tell you – it does! This we highly recommend Gib for real estate needs and if anyone ever asks us if they know someone, he can count on us for a glowing recommendation!
Azaz and Maria B.(Buyer, 2014)
I know Gib Heggtveit for over an year now. He is a very nice person who is knowledgeable in real estate market and help his clients to choose the right home which in one hard pleasant to live on and which also have a great re-sale value. Gib has a very good sense about the structure of a house and how can you alter to fulfill your need. He advised me at every step on my buying and selection process of my home. I am highly grateful for all his effort towards his clients and I hope him all the success in his career.
Don and Rosemary W.(Seller, 2009)
Gib and Mary are truly personable and professional people and they did everything they could for us to sell our home but were unsuccessful in doing so. Gib and Mary keep in touch with us all the time, which we appreciate – how many agents would do that!!! You have the feeling that Gib and Mary are your friends but work so hard to get the job done. If we were to list our home again we would more than likely contact Gib and Mary. Absolutely no complaints in dealing with Gib and Mary. They were so respectful of us, which is a great asset. We would give them a 4 and definitely 5 if our home had sold.
Terry H.(Buyer and Seller, 1961-2015)
Yes, I have worked with Gib since we were in High School in Ottawa.. He is an honest, trustworthy friend and believes in all the good qualities of relating to customers and others he comes in contact with. I believe. In his opinion and love discussing good and bad situations. in the world. He is one of those people you enjoy seeing and talking with about life in general. I will be selling my house, soon, as I am looking to downsize. Gib will be part of my transition plan.
Dan V.(Buyer and Seller, 2015)
Gib and Mary are the ultimate realtor team! They make you feel at ease through the whole process of buying or selling a house. When I first met Gib, he seemed like a professional, making my wife and I feel welcome and taken care of. Both Gib and Mary really wanted to get to know us; making us feel like valuable clients. Now that we have gone through the process with them, I tell all my friends and family to call Gib and Mary if they are buying or selling. You won't regret it!
Holly and Yuhai Z.(Buyer, 2015)
Gib is the most professional realtor we ever met. In the process of buying our house, he always gave us constructive suggestions, explained the policy clearly, made objective comments on houses we were interested, and did work for us. We trust him very much. If somebody asks us to refer a realtor, we will not think of other people besides Gib.
Bob and Val T.(Seller, 2003)
We worked with Gib for the first time in 2003 when we were trying to sell a house across the street that we had completely renovated. With all the real estate agents in Woodstock, Gib was the only one who came forward and offered us advice on selling a house. When we were not successful in selling the place ourselves we put the house in Gib's hands and he very soon had a sold sign on it for us Gib was also instrumental in selling a vacant property in town for us a few years later. We would certainly give Gib a five star rating for all his work and efforts on our behalf. Not only are Gib and Mary great real estate agents but we are proud to have them also as friends.
Brian H.(Buyer, 2005-2015)
Gib understands my needs . He also understands business in general so he's a great resource for me . I live 2 hrs away , so I count on Gib to cover the local side of my needs . He's very hard working and always willing to jump in as needed . I've bought several houses with Gib's help and continue to count on him for a current purchase we're working on .
Jon and Daniela V.(Buyer and Seller, 2015)
Gib went above and beyond to help us not only find our forever home but also sell our home. Gib took our ideas an wants and the first home he showed us we bought and purchased within our budget. He worked his magic and got the price down. His fantastic advertising helped us sell our home in 24 hours. He is a dedicated and honest realtor and we could not have asked for anyone else to represent us.
Tammy V.(Buyer, 2011)
I met Gib and Mary Heggtveit over four years ago when I was looking to buy a house in Woodstock, coming from Paris, Ontario. They were very personable, friendly and knowledgeable upon first meeting them. I was really impressed with their level of knowledge and expertise in the real estate business and found that they both went ‘above and beyond’ the call of duty. I eventually started to work with Gib and Mary doing home staging and to this day, continue to have a great working and personal relationship with them. Their greatest strength to me, was the way they both make a conscience effort to build ‘strong relationships’ with their clients. They invest countless time and energy getting to know their client’s, and their specific needs or interests. Gib and Mary are continually looking at ways to ‘rise above the rest’, and always try to go beyond the task of ‘just selling houses’. They support, clients, mentally and emotionally when needed, include free staging to their clients and provide constant guidance before, during and after the process of selling or buying a house. They also provide clients with wonderful follow-up emails or mail that provide great, advice, knowledge and inspiration. They really are in a league of their own, I highly recommend them as agents and consultants when looking to buy or sell a house!
Rene and Charlene L.(Buyer and Seller, 2013)
There are many qualities involved in the selling of a home. Notice I said Home and not building, house, abode, dwelling. Sure all these are appropriate in circumstances but one thing they all are when it is occupied with love is HOME. Mary and Gib Heggtveit, were persistent. Our home was high end for the area we were in. It was a buyers market. We were intent on (as most) getting as much as we could but not be priced too high. My wife and I weren't the easiest to get along with and were too stubborn. But Gib and Mary were patient and showed their professionalism to the max by gently leading us through the turmoil that is involved in selling. They took us around to show us the competition at our price level, showed us the advantage of staging the house for best appeal. Mostly though, they were persistent. Their patience paid off and though it took longer than we'd hope the home was sold and a great burden lifted. We are ever so grateful for them and value them as important in our life and through the process they've also become part of our life even after the sale. We are proud to call them friends.
Winnie and Karen A.(Buyer, 2004)
Being a very particular buyer, searching for a home that would incorporate moving my mother in with my husband and I, made for what might have been a very frustrating experience for Gib; however, he displayed amazing patience and made us feel totally comfortable with what turned out to be a rather long drawn out affair. Gib never once made me feel pressured to make a decision or tried to rush me in any way. We found that Gib's patience and understanding quality were just what we needed in an agent as we pursued this search.
Moe and Chaza Zeaiter C.(Buyer, 2015)
Since we were new to London and as first-time home buyers, we were pretty overwhelmed by it all. However, our experience was a pleasurable and stress free one all because of your guidance through all the steps and your patience in explaining all the details to us. It sure helped us to feel more confident and take the right decision. We just wanted to thank you again for all of your help with the purchase of our new home. Thank you Gib and Mary for your kindness and professionalism, we will definitely recommend you to people and suggest to anyone that is looking to buy or sell that they contact you two wonderful professionals to help them achieve their real estate goals
Doug and Deb S.(Seller, 2003)
Gib came looking for us first. We were trying to sell a home on our own. Without much luck Gib contacted us and we have dealt with Gib since. We sold the first house and two more. Making money on all three.
Kate G.(Buyer, 2008)
I met Gib & Mary in early 2008 as I was looking for a home in Oxford County. Mary and myself spent many hours driving around many small towns within the county and found my perfect home in Ingersoll. Gib and Mary are a great team and are always available to answer your questions or any concerns you may have. Mary was great, trekking around with me to find my home, an all brick bungalow that I still reside in today. Gib is great with the numbers and an expert on the market and trends. I would highly recommended them for all of your Real Estate needs.

unbelievable performance, top shelve service
Carrie and Tyson K.(Buyer, 2005)
Gib is a big guy with an even bigger heart! We we referred to Gib by the agent who sold our home in Kitchener-Waterloo. Gib made the home buying process very easy for us considering we were from out of town and expecting our second child. We found him very knowledgable, easy to work with, and we really appreciated all his advice and observations on every property we looked at. Gib went out of his way for us by finding us a home that fit almost everything on our wish list!
Nader A.(Buyer and Seller, 2016)
Gib and Mary have great experience and made the process fast and achievable. Many thanks for him and Mary
Catherine H.(Seller, 2014)
Gib and Mary have been an absolute delight to work with while selling my first house. They are extremely knowledgeable and patient when answering all my questions (and with it being the first house I have sold I had a lot of questions!) and they were very flexible in terms of when they were available to have meetings. Gib even crawled into a giant snow bank to put my for sale sign out front! I have no doubt without their team of recommended professionals and everyone’s suggestions for preparing and staging my house for sale, my would not have sold within two weeks of listing it on the market. I would highly recommend Gib, Mary and their team to anyone who is looking to sell their house or purchase a new house. They spend as much time as you need to be comfortable and understand the process and they are always available to you throughout the process being just a phone call away.
