To whom it may concern…
It was a very big decision to sell our family home after living in it for 53 years. But it was the right decision to make as we were still capable of doing the downsizing and packing by ourselves. Putting it off and waiting until you have to rely on someone else to make the decisions of what to sell/ keep/ or give away is more stressful that doing it yourselves.
We are extremely pleased with Mira and John Marion’s service and expertise and help for the recent sale of our house. They gave us helpful suggestions for preparing the house for showings. They brought in appropriate workers to do some repairs before putting it on the market.
They presented the house fabulously on the MLS listing.
This was a tough market in the Christmas holiday season, in which to sell our house. In spite of the season, Mira and John brought in many interested buyers and had two open houses and a deal was struck early in January. Your negotiation skills are terrific.
Thank you both for selling our home. We are very pleased with the end result, and know that it was your professionalism and expertise that made all the difference in bringing in the right purchasers and then closing this deal. We couldn’t have done it without you and all your hard work.
It has been a great pleasure working with you, and you can be sure we will recommend you to friends and family.

**** Dear Mira and John:
Thank you for your assistance in helping my younger sister and I purchase a
house in Winnipeg.
To find a house, from first viewing through to the final offer of acceptance -
in four days - was truly remarkable...that took organization, patience; and a
full knowledge of the real estate and financial world.
In a professional and efficient manner, you stayed in touch with us and kept
us up to date during the process. Your assurance that the right house
was out there, was of comfort to us.
Your communication by phone, e-mail, and texting with our financial advisor
at the Royal Bank was fantastic. Everyone was kept in the loop in a timely
Extraordinary, only begins to describe the type of service offered by you,
John and Mira.
Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for finding us a house we can call home.
Mira and John provided outstanding advice, service and support as they worked on selling our house. From the initial discussions about price, staging and marketing of the property, Mira and John exhibited extraordinary skill in delivering the best print and media exposure possible. It sold fast and that was a big relief for us it was a smooth process thanks to their ability to handle things professionally.
My Husband and I also found our new house thanks to Mira, if it wasn’t for her suggesting to take a look at the house we are in now we, wouldn’t be living in a our beautiful home. We felt like we could trust them, they are honest and kind people. I would recommend them to anyone who would like the real deal kind of people you can count on to get the job done!
Thank you Mira and John on a job well done!

**** One greatful customer
Who do you pick when you want to sell your house? There are so many realtors to choose from.
I was so lucky to go with the people who sent me their yearly calendar with a nice picture of my house. Apparently they liked and appreciated what they saw.
Mira and John Marion have made the sale of my house a great experience.
They stood by me with professional and solid advice.
And the ad that Mira wrote was just amazing, including the pictures!
All in all the whole process was short and sweet because the house sold within 6 days with $25,000 over asking price!
Thanks Mira and John! I would recommend you to any one!
If you are looking for a real estate professional to help you find your new home, you won't find anyone better than Mira Marion. Mira represents the best that can be found in a real estate professional. Honesty, integrity, dedication, and knowledgeable are words that best describe my view of Mira as a person. Mira helped me find my new home. She can do the same for you.

**** Dear John and Mira;
Darlene and I would like to take a moment of your time, to express our deepest gratitude for the way you handled the purchase of our new home and the sale of our present home! The constant assistance and the way you always assured us that everything was on track and would work out fine, was tremendously appreciated by us. The time you spent, answering all of our questions, and showing us all of the options open to us, will never be forgotten.
The fact that you found us our new home as quickly as you did along with the fact that this
house sold as quickly as it did and for over the asking price was a delight we can only
attribute to your professionalism and hard work on our behalf.
If any of our friends, neighbours or family, is ever in a position to buy or sell a property we will
highly recommend that they get in touch with you, as we are sure in our minds, that they
would be in excellent hands.
Once again our sincerest thanks for all of you extra efforts and the way you made, what
could be a very stressful time, into a real pleasing event.

**** Dear John and Mira,
Thank you so much for assisting and helping myself and my mother with the selling of her condo. John and Mira you went well above the call of duty. I can't begin to explain how much I appreciate what you have done for us. Mira, the kindness, patience and gentleness that you showed my mother only shows what a wonderful warm and kind heart you have. John, your sincerity, honesty and especially your knowledge only proves how lucky we were to have had you as our agent.
When I first met you, I knew instantly that I had chosen the right agents. Not knowing where to even start in selling a home, I was very nervous and anxious. I still am very amazed and impressed that you sold our condo in six days and even better that we received more than the asking price. You truly are amazing agents and a pleasure to know.
Thank you both from the bottom of our hearts. It meant the world to us.
Your new friends,
Suzanne and Matty
**** Dear Mira and John,
Please accept our sincerest thanks for all of your extra efforts and the way you changed what we feared would be a very traumatic and trying time into a real gratifying experience. Your assurance that all would be OK and the complete confidence and professionalism you showed us put our minds totally at ease.
The timing of the sale and the arrangements for viewing the house that you suggested worked out to our best advantage as you had predicted. We particularly liked the way you stayed in touch with us and kept us up to date on how things were progressing.
The sale of our home of 50 years was completed in a very short time and problem-free thanks to your expertise and patience.
Be assured that if and when any of our family, friends and acquaintances is in need of a real estate representative, you will be foremost in our recommendations.
Ron and Marina
**** Dear John And Mira,
Roger and I just wanted to say a huge ‘thank you’ for the way you both handled the sale of our home. Over the years we have sold several homes but the process has never been so stress free. Your professionalism made us feel assured that we were leaving the sale of our home in excellent hands.
We were impressed with the time you took to make us feel comfortable and with the way you marketed our property. The fact that from the day you listed to the date of final sale was a mere seven days absolutely amazed us. Even more amazing was the fact that we received offers well over the list price.
Thank you again for making such a difficult time a real pleasure. If ever we sell our home again you will be the first realtors we contact, and we will be sure to recommend you to any of our friends and colleagues.
Roger and Diane
**** Dear Mira,
We would like to express our sincere gratitude for all of your help and expertise during our search for our first home! We were recommended to you by a friend, and we can certainly see why he recommended you. You helped us first figure out what we were looking for, and then were by our side during dozens of home viewings. Your experience and knowledge of homes and the Winnipeg market were beneficial to have, as it taught us what to look for when viewing a house, and helped us prioritize what we wanted. Your advice during the offer process was accurate and thoughtful, and in the end we found an amazing home! We are very happy with our purchase and are very happy to have you as our realtor. Thanks again!
Alex and Janelle
**** Dear John & Mira,
My husband and I would like to express our most sincere thanks for your excellent, friendly, and professional assistance in selling our house. It was such a pleasant experience to sell our house with you help.
We would like to provide a testimonial about your service as following:
My husband went to Ottawa for his new job in November 2009, since January, we had been trying to sell our home at 188 Renfrew St. for $200,000 privately. But it turned out to be very frustrating after almost 2 months of showings of the home. Particularly, I have two kids (one is just 7 month old baby) to take care of. People came to look at home just like doing window shopping, most of them are not serious buyers. After many weeks of showing there was no offer and I was exhausted. Kids had no fun at home because I need keep home tidy and clean all the time.
So we decided to list our home with the help of professionals. We chose John & Mira of Re/Max to sell our home. They were very patient to answer all the questions we had and suggested to replace the damaged kitchen floor and even brought in a very good handyman for us. The handyman did an excellent job. The next day, they brought two offers to us and one of them offered us $213,000 without any conditions! My husband and I happily accepted the offer and was so excited that night.
We are so glad with our decision to list our house with the professionals and would highly recommend John & Mira of Re/Max to everybody without any hesitation. We also realized later that private sale puts us in a potentially dangerous situation because you never know who is knocking at your front door.
All the best wishes for your future business,
188 Renfrew St
**** Dear Mira and John,
Our mother home sale has been finalized, and we are most appreciative of the professional and efficient way you handled selling our family home. Ours was a emotional sale, moving my mom from a home she had lived in for over fifty years due to ill health brought with it a range of emotions.
Living in the United States and having no knowledge of the market in Winnipeg we relied on your experience in pricing our home to sell in an atmosphere where the market is not at its best in a stagnant economy.
All of your recommendations on repairs as well as providing us with a qualified handyman to accomplish them were most welcome and your personal efforts in preparing the home for open house was most appreciated. Helping to dispose of many personal items and donating them to charities was a welcome helping hand.
You were there in an ongoing manner actively representing us and sold our home in two weeks and also worked with worked with our lawyer in our absence. All of this leads me to say when people contact you for the sale of their home, they get a team that is there all the way and you both provide service above and beyond to your clients.
I would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to you both. I will always recommend your team for future sales or purchases to all my friends. If we need any assistance regarding real estate, you are the only team we would call.

**** Dear John and Mira,
Carmen and I would like to thank both of you for all your hard work in facilitating the sale of our home. You were very patient and helpful meeting with us prior to us listing the home with you. Your guidance and suggestions were much appreciated and, I am sure helped us to get a quick sale and maximize the price we were able to sell for.
We would not hesitate to contact you again when we decide to list other properties. We will definitely recommend your services to anyone we hear about that is considering listing their home for sale or in the market to purchase property.
**** In late October of 2013 we decided to move. It’s not the easiest time of year to sell a home and move but that’s what we were working with. We contacted Mira and John and they were fabulous! They gave us helpful information as we prepared the house for sale, they kept us informed of all the developments and they guided us each step of the way as we worked through the final negotiations of the sale. They were on top of all the details in a very professional way.
Details are an important aspect in selling but, at least for us, Mira and John’s warm personalities created a trust that made this a wonderful experience for us right from the start. Their professionalism coupled with their engaging personalities make them a dynamic and successful team.
We have recommended Mira and John to friends and even to our work-places because we were so impressed by them and by their work. And, the great part is, even in a late October market, Mira was able to negotiate a sale above our asking price. What could be better than that!
We highly recommend Mira and John to anyone selling their home; at anytime of the year.
Janet and Rick
**** Dear John and Mira,
As a first time prospective homeowner, I was as expected, very nervous and unsure of what to do or even where to really begin. But, the real estate team of Mira and John Marion made the entire process of purchasing my first home very easy and pleasant.
Their years of expertise and knowledge of the market is exceptional and was evident throughout my entire home buying process. Their kindness, excellent communication skills, scheduling flexibility and commitment made me feel my needs and concerns were important and they did their very best to meet them.
Mira and John took the time to explain all the steps necessary in the home buying process and answered any questions I had. Mira was quick and diligent in finding properties that I would be interested in and is very knowledgeable. The property showings she scheduled for me were always convenient and efficient. She would point out the pros and cons or flaws in a property that I may have missed and handled everything in a professional manner.
Mira and John Marion are both very approachable, pleasant, friendly and polite people. It was very comfortable and easy to work with them and it would be my pleasure to work with them again or to recommend their services to anyone that is considering selling or purchasing a home in the future. Thank you for all of your help in buying my first home!
**** From the moment we met Mira we knew that we picked the right agent to help us find our first home. Mira's joyful and upbeat attitude and her knowledge and expertise of real estate is evident from the moment you meet her. Mira was flexible and accommodating to our schedule, it felt like we were her only client. Thank you Mira for your help, we love our home!!!
Lori & Andrew
**** John and Mira's help made it possible for us to achieve our big dream, on a tight budget. They patiently worked with us over several months until we found the home that worked for us. They also brought a family perspective that helped us think about our needs and desires.
Another important quality of their work is honestly. No matter what property they showed us, they were sure to point out the good and the bad, to help us make an informed decision. For us to be happy with our decision and our new home was more important to them than anything else.
**** Dear John & Mira,
I would like to start off by saying thank you so much for making this happen for me. I am very excited about this purchase and very proud to be a first time homeowner. I am very thankful for having you guys looking out for my best interests, and for being so warm, friendly, professional and most of all, very patient. As we all know, buying a house can be exciting, but it is also a bit nerve-wrecking. With you both on the job, the whole experience has been so much more smoother and not very frustrating whatsoever. I will make sure that if I find people who are on the hunt for a condo/house, I will point them in your direction.
Again, many many thanks and I do look forward to seeing you both again.
**** Hi John,
John Marion went well above and beyond his duties as a real estate agent. Being so busy and not having a car, getting from viewing to viewing would have been difficult on feet. But John went out of his way to pick me up on his way to the viewings - making my life so much easier!
As a first time homeowner, I had no idea what to look for in a house. John took the time to get to know me, his client, and was able to find the perfect house that met my needs and that I love!
John wasn't interested in simply selling me a home. He took the time to answer all of my questions and to educate me about things that I should be looking for in a home. John was also very flexible - he worked around myschedule when viewing houses. John is honest, professional, reliable and gracious. I would eagerly recommend him to anyone seeking a house in Winnipeg.
It was indeed a pleasure meeting with you and John during the month of February. My little experience as a first time home-buyer was somewhat difficult until you started helping me.
I am very pleased to write this “Thank You Letter” because your experience, courtesy and professionalism guided me to find the right place for me. You considered all my requests, like neighborhood, school and most of all, the right price.
Again, thank you for taking the extra time, effort and consideration to make it happen.
