Irene was a pleasure to work with and provided excellent, professional service in our successful search for a home for our family. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an experienced agent to help buy or sell a home.
Jennifer O.(Buyer, 2015)
Irene went above and beyond my expectations in purchasing our first home. She is very knowledgeable and was always honest with us about pricing, neighborhoods and the cost of work that would need to be done on a home. Irene has many connections with other professionals, and arranged to have different professionals (a contractor/handyman and pet odour remover) view homes we were considering, free of charge to us. She took extra time to do a lot of research and helped negotiate with the builder on a new home purchase. Irene was quick to get us in to see homes as they came on the market and was flexible to meet us when it fit our busy schedule. Even after we committed to the new home purchase, Irene continued to follow-up and assist us until we took possession of our new home. She even invited us to her personal residence to help us choose the finishes for our new build. I would highly recommend Irene to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate. She is very professional and goes above and beyond to get to know her clients and has kept in touch after closing. Irene ensured we were well educated and comfortable every step of the home buying process. I will use Irene's services again when we decide to sell and purchase our next home or investment property, and would highly recommend her services to friends and family.
Christine M.(Buyer and Seller, 2016)
Irene is a pleasure to work with. She is attentive and take the time to learn about your needs and wants as a buyer and/or seller. Irene is honest and will give you both pros and cons to any given property so you can make an informed decision. We will absolutely be working with Irene again in future!
Marlene G.(Seller, 2016)
Irene was very helpful in guiding me as a first-time seller to understand the procedure. Suggestions for upgrading and staging were most helpful to get top price.
Charlene and Email B.(Buyer and Seller, 2015 and 2016)
Initially Irene Helped us sell our parents home, because of her excellent work we decided to have Irene help us purchase a new home as well as sell our present dwelling. She asked us for what we wanted and listened, The home we purchased Ticked off all our wants and we couldn't be happier...... Our sale went exceptionally well with a sale above asking price in less than a week. Irene is very Knowledgeable in the local market and several times steered us clear of properties she thought would not meet our expectations. She also went as far as to suggest a second opinion on financing which saved us a bundle. We highly recommend Irene, she will not disappoint!
Rebecca G.(Buyer, 2016)
Irene Szabo provided an excellent, personalized service. We were new to the region and she provided us with numerous listings online, respecting our budgets and preferences. She was well organized in planning the house visits and able to pack in many visits in the short time that was available to us and was always friendly and upbeat. She was knowledgeable of Guelph and surrounding areas and able to provide very good advice, and would seek the answers to questions when she did not have an immediate response. Her service was very well appreciated and I would not hesitate in recommending her.
Amy M.(Buyer, 2017)
In the months leading up to our purchase, we causally saw potential homes with a few different real-estate agents. Irene was by far a cut above the others. She was very professional, took great interest in our needs and always responded in a timely manner. One of the things I noticed that made Irene different is that she took the time to preview a potential home before taking us on a walk through. Any question we had, she had already researched. We encountered a few obstacles in the weeks leading up to closing. Irene was on it! She helped provide sound advice and recommendations at every step of the process. Thanks again Irene!
Chantal M.(Buyer, 2016)
As new homebuyers, we were so happy to have Irene working with us to find a house. She was very good at explaining all the details and processes when it comes to buying a home. Not only that she was always there whenever we had a question and Irene was always prompt in responding to us. She was flexible when accommodating our schedules and her expertise and experience was invaluable when we were walking through homes. She always kept our needs in mind and was very up front and honest about our options. We were so glad to have Irene help us through our decision and we ended up finding the perfect place! We highly recommend Irene for anyone who is looking to buy or sell! Thanks Irene!
Salmon P.(Buyer, 2016)
Irene has been a valuable asset for us in our home search. Since this is our first home she ensured to give us lot of information related to home buying process. Irene was prompt, punctual and flexible with her appointments. her network comprises of house inspectors, mortgage advisors and Solicitors.
Sandy H.(Buyer and Seller, 2015)
Irene was instrumental in helping us get our house ready for sale. She helped provide practical advice and resources to help us spruce up our place with minimal amount of dollars and disruption. We sold our house on the first day listed and we were ecstatic! She was very patient as we viewed many houses to purchase as this was a big decision to down size and we had to feel our way through the process. Thanks Irene for being supportive and very helpful during the whole process.
Craig M.(Buyer and Seller, 2016)
Irene has been an invaluable asset to me for both selling and buying a home here in Guelph. Her knowledge of the market in Guelph is unparalleled and her no nonsense approach to her profession is how I like to do business. I have found my "realtor for life' and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
Melissa R.(Buyer, 2016)
Irene is a wonderful agent and human! We would never have been able to find the house of our dreams (on a tight budget) without her. She is honest, hardworking and extremely well-loved in the community. We feel deeply blessed to know her. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Guelph. Thank you Irene!
Heather Y.(Buyer, 2016)
My home buying experience was so smooth and easy with Irene. I didn't have to take time off work or miss anything from my personal life to deal with the negotiating, paperwork, etc. I also felt very comfortable knowing that she was looking out for my best interests and I know she was honest about her opinions. She is full of advice for how to make this important financial decision. I wouldn't buy or sell a home without Irene!!
Nicole R.(Buyer and Seller, 2017)
My husband and I were looking for our forever home and Irene took the time to make sure we got exactly what we wanted. She was patient with us throughout the process and also guided us through the sale of our current home. We couldn't have asked for a better realtor!
Braden L.(Buyer, 2016)
Irene Szabo is a wonderful real estate agent. As first time home buyers, navigating the competitive Guelph market was very intimidating. Irene took the time to alleviate our concerns, help us find a property that worked with our financials and most importantly told us what we needed to hear. Due to her diligence and hard work, my wife and I were able to purchase our dream home. We could not be happier with the service provided and would gladly recommend Irene to anyone looking at buying a new property. -Braden and Katie
David and Joanie Mcgee S.(Buyer, 2016)
We not only received expert advice and expert service, but have gained a friendship. Irene is personable, responsible, reliable, cooperative and accommodating. Her experience and knowledge of the housing market in Guelph allowed our search to be painless, successful, and rewarding. We highly recommend Irene Szabo. D&J Slavkin
Christine G.(Buyer, 2016)
Irene is an extremely knowledgeable and honest real estate professional who will give you truthful, no nonsense answers about the houses you are looking at and what they are REALLY worth. She is patient and never pushes - 'there will always be another house for sale' as she often would say when we lost out on a bid (good thing, a better house came along in a better neighbourhood). The decision to purchase is ultimately your own, but her advice is always 'spot on' as the Brits would say. We have just purchased 3 rental properties with her expert advice and feel confident we have made good investments in all 3 of them. I would not hesitate to recommend Irene for any real estate transactions. Definitely 5 stars from us
Lori J.(Buyer, 2016)
Working with Irene was great! She was very knowledgeable about the types of houses in the neighbourhoods we were looking at and provided some great perspective on determining how much to offer. I would highly recommend her.
Harold T.(Seller, 2016)
We retained Irene's services to sell our home. Throughout the entire process, Irene was very professional and was always available to answer our questions. Updates were provided to us on a regular basis and we found that any questions we were wanting to ask, were answered by Irene as part of these updates. Irene impressed us with how she was able to negotiate a great offer on our behalf. We would highly recommend Irene to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home.
Jovet D.(Buyer, 2016)
Irene is very professional. She came prepared with details of homes she wanted to show us. We chose a home we liked, and she showed it to us, we bought it and the rest is history. Very reliable and thoughtful! You can't ask for a better agent!
Andrew M.(Buyer, 2016)
Irene exceeded all expectations I had from my agent buying my first home. I highly recommend Irene to anyone looking for an agent who is highly experienced and knowledgeable of the market, and proactively attends to your all your needs throughout the home-buying process. I am more than satisfied with my experience with Irene - she is quality.
Jennifer M.(Buyer and Seller, 2016)
