“Bruce Johnson is the consummate realtor, and his lovely wife Mary, the ultimate staging professional. Together they make a powerful team!

From start to finish, Bruce’s vast experience and knowledge, along with his accurate and honest assessment of property values provided an invaluable source of information. He knows so much about the area, other comparable properties for sale and quality home construction. He expertly guided us through the challenging process of preparing our home to be sold, placing our house most advantageously on the market at the best price, and assisting us in finding and buying our beautiful, new home. While we were away on vacation, Bruce swiftly and effectively negotiated a deal on our house and had it sold in one week at full asking price! We were absolutely thrilled, as he sent us the papers to sign, helping us every step of the way over the phone, and making the whole process so easy, even from a long distance. He even arranged for a local RE/MAX in California to help with the signing process.

We were worried that we would not find the right house in the short amount of time available before closing. Bruce reassured us that the right house would soon present itself, and soon, there were two we could not decide between. Bruce goes the extra mile. He stayed with us until later at night, accompanying us as we drove miles between our top choices of houses, sitting with us in each home, and patiently going over the pros and cons.

If you list with Bruce, you are very lucky to receive free staging. Mary Johnson truly has a gift, when it comes to professionally staging a house. She completely transformed the space and lifted the energy through her knowledge of the ancient art of feng shui to a peaceful, relaxing, spa-like feeling. Mary spent a great deal of time preparing an extensive list for us that looked daunting at first glance. However, we are glad that we followed it conscientiously, because in the end, it had a huge impact on selling the house so soon. She chose neutral, uplifting and calming paint colours to brighten up key rooms, pointed out where repairs were needed, and guided us with great sensitivity and care in finding beautiful and elegant accent pieces, which now adorn our new home. She also found the perfect front door and garage door colours, and offered valuable tips on sprucing up the outside. There must have been over 100 emails exchanged, mostly initiated from us, as she thoroughly and thoughtfully answered all of our questions in great detail. Our home looked like a cover shot in a Better Homes and Gardens magazine spread and so serene, that we questioned whether or not we really wanted to move out. We are having Mary stage our new house, just to make sure our new home becomes as gorgeous a retreat as our last. She calls it, “Staging for Living.”

The greatest part of this amazing real estate team is the people they are. Bruce and Mary are so engaging, fun and positive. But what is most appreciated, is their sincerity and honesty, which are indeed rare in today’s world. Your life will be richer for having known them, and their professionalism is unsurpassed.”
