They had best marketing plan 

We love Marian and Carver. They were uber professional, and really took the time to get know us and what we wanted. As well, they had the best marketing plan we saw out of any agent we knew of and it showed in the results. In a building that was undervalued, they were able to bring up the price per square foot, get us the most any unit has ever sold for and do it in the shortest amount of time. Amazing!

Would definitely recommend both of you to others who are looking to sell their home

Thank you both so much for all your help in selling my condo. I am especially in gratitude to you for getting various notes (the letter to the insurance, tax bill etc) to my lawyer Maryam Mohajer who I will have the pleasure of meeting soon. Also the emails of What Happens Next, which helped me to know what to do and expect. I am glad you were my agent again and would definitely recommend both of you to others who are looking to sell their home. I and my family are grateful to you for taking charge of so many things that would have been over the top for me. All the best and thanks again.

We always felt that you had our best interests at heart
Thank-you for all your work during our condo sale. Your expert guidance and knowledge of the real estate market made the process stress free. 
Your kindness and friendship throughout, made the journey easy and fun. We always felt that you had our best interests at heart and this was evident in each and every conversation and transaction. Your professionalism and marketing materials were exceptional. Judy was always there to support us as well and although we didn't end up buying this time, your support while we explored the option was truly appreciated. 
Emma and Ian


Over the moon happy

Many thanks for reaching out -- but we must thank you! I can't count the times Jeff and Ellen thanked us for introducing you -- they think you guys are the absolute best and are over-the-moon happy with their new home.



You did it all in less than a week

Because we are retired, this was our most important homesale. You made it amazingly worry free. It’s hard to believe you did it all in less than a week and brought in an offer well over the asking price. Marian and Carver, we could not be happier. Thank you for your warm and extremely professional help in selling our home.

Paul & Gayle


Negotiated on our behalf very professionally

My Mother sold her house recently, after her family lived there for 75 years. This was a very hard decision to make for Mom as you can imagine. However Marian and Carver made it less difficult with their caring professional manner.  We found throughout the process that they explained the process very well, and always communicated in a timely way with us. Marian and Carver proved to know the market very well and had many established connections with potential buyers. They negotiated on our behalf very professionally.  We would highly recommend this great team. We wouldn't have wanted to do this without them.



Impressed with your ability to assess the winning bid

From the very beginning, you have been incredibly helpful, insightful, personable and knowledgeable.

Carver, it was a pleasure looking at and touring houses with you.  Your knowledge of houses goes beyond real estate market value.  You helped us understand the fundamentals of structure, layout, quality of building and foundations, and ensured we weren’t purchasing a money pit.  You put us in touch with some helpful people in renovations and construction, and always followed up to confirm our satisfaction with the outcome.  

Marian, you know the market well! We were both very impressed with your ability to assess the winning bid on a house and we felt comfortable knowing that when we went in we were competitive and well prepared.

You are a great team and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience working with you.  The little touches you add are so nice.  We look forward to doing it again down the road.  We will definitely recommend you.

D Cushing and A Hope


Your strong negotiating skills

Just a quick note to thank you for all your help with the sale of my home.  It is always great working with someone so determined and professional.

After having listed with another agent, I was pleasantly surprised at the difference in marketing approach. I was impressed with your accuracy in pricing my home. Also, you realized the urgency of my selling the property and were extremely diligent and focused on accomplishing this task quickly. It sold in only a couple of days! I was very happy to see that all my terms and conditions were met, which I attribute solely to your strong negotiating skills, as well as your vast real estate knowledge and experience.

Thank you for the efforts you made in turning a stressful time into a very pleasant experience. I want you to know it was greatly appreciated. I will definitely keep you in mind for any friends, family and colleagues that may need your services.

Lesley Milano


We put more money in our pocket

Thank you for the great job on selling our house on Fairlawn Avenue.  We were very happy with the selling price you got for us.  As you know we talked to three REALTORs about selling our house and decided to use your services because of your area knowledge and experience.  It was a hard decision to make because your commission rate was higher then the others.  In the end, because of the high sale price, we feel that we put more money in our pocket then we would have if we used the services of another REALTOR. Thanks again for your hard work in promoting and selling our home.

Brian and Lisa


110% of their time and attention

It has been said that a move is one of the most stressful times for a person. After our recent move from Vancouver to Toronto, I would agree, but only on a small scale. A large part of that was due to Marian Neal and Carver Fraser. They did an outstanding job working as our REALTORs. Their attention to detail, patience and knowledge of the Toronto market were true assets to finding us the perfect home.

Marian and Carver were extremely accommodating when it came to giving us 110% of their time and attention. Their professionalism coupled with their high energy and friendliness was the right combination for us. Even after the sale went through, they remained in contact with us to make sure we were truly happy with our new purchase. We are thankful that we could have someone as reliable and trustworthy, as Marian and Carver were, to help us find and buy a home we are excited about. We will definitely use the Neal and Fraser team in the future and would highly recommend them to anyone buying or selling a home. Thank you Marian and Carver!

Jason Tingley and Kathy Wakil  


Was their negotiation skills that helped us

As a litigation lawyer, I greatly value the ability to make strong presentations and to negotiate successfully. When it came to buying a new home, and selling our existing home, we turned to the professional team of Marian Neal and Carver Fraser. They prepared an excellent presentation of our existing home, which they successfully sold at well above the asking price. And they did this in just over a week! As well, they helped us to purchase a new home that was what we were looking for, at a very favourable price. It was their negotiation skills that helped us to "buy low and sell high". What we -- a busy working couple -- particularly appreciated was how Marian and Carver worked as a team to ensure that one of them was always available to deal with any issue that arose, leaving us more time to do our own work with minimal attention to the two home transactions.  

I would strongly recommend Marian and Carver to any busy professionals who want to buy or sell a home with minimal personal effort, and with good financial results.

Our follow up

Thanks for being a hand holding agent - so few of us around these days!

Extremely experienced, helpful and supportive

I have used Marian (Marian Neal & Carver Fraser) as my agent on three occasions and always found her to be extremely experienced, helpful and supportive. She guided me through my concerns, yet was never intrusive. Her cheerful personality made her a joy to work with. They are a wonderful team, and I congratulate them on their success.

Truly a full-service initiative

Now that I have dug my way out from behind a pile of boxes (so that I can see the rest of the piles of boxes), I wanted to send you and Marian a quick note, expressing my appreciation for your service during my relocation and house-hunting excursion in the jungles of Toronto.

As a first-time buyer (and showing it every step of the way), I appreciated your patience and the time you took with me during the whole process; you made what could have been a stressful and negative experience something that I will look back on with satisfaction.

I am very happy with the area that I’m now in (survived the G20!), and also wanted to thank you for the recommendation of temporary accommodation, and for the referral of the attorney; this was truly a full-service initiative from beginning to conclusion.

Thank you for everything (including the bidding piece that night of the offers – it was an interesting piece of minor drama), and I am very fortunate that I had such professional and helpful people as yourselves advocating for me. I would have no hesitation in recommending both of you to anyone.

With many thanks for getting me into my home,

Josh Pender


Patient with me and all my questions

Being a first time homebuyer and new to Toronto, Carver proved to be a wealth of information. He was always on the ball and showed me so many different condos. But most of all he was so patient with me and all my questions. I was slightly uneasy in making this big purchase, but Carver was a fabulous guide throughout the process.

Carver showed me a broad range of places in different areas of the city and in all different types of buildings, which allowed me to get a good feel of the area I wanted to buy in. I am so pleased with my purchase and would recommend Carver to anyone.

Thanks so much for all your guidance throughout my purchasing process.

Alison McEwen  


Beyond our expectations

Thank you for taking care of the sale of our house. We are more than happy with the result and as you mentioned, you had a mission and it was well above and beyond our expectations.

France and Steve


They do excellent research

Our family seems to move every couple of years and for the last four moves we have used Marian Neal and for the last two moves, Marian and Carver Fraser as our real estate agents.  We keep going back to them because the entire process is stress-free.  Marian and Carver are very professional and thorough in their assessment of our home to market it optimally. They have good ideas and ‘across Toronto’ experience. They do excellent research and go above and beyond to help out with any concern. We feel fully confident that we are well represented by Marian and Carver.  The office staff, especially Franca, is resourceful and helpful.  Franca is diligent and thoughtful in following up with clients and other agents.

We could not imagine using any other real estate agents and recommend them, without reservation, to anyone contemplating selling and/or buying a home.

Bill and Carole Ann Alloway


A positive and rewarding experience

Marian has been involved in helping us buy and sell 4 properties over the past 10 years. Her professionalism and expertise has made our huge endeavours a positive and rewarding experience.  

We would absolutely ask Marian to help us in the future and would recommend her to anyone buying or selling a property.  

Carol Crystal and Jeff Meilach


Would highly recommend them to anyone we know

When we first met Marian Neal we immediately knew she would do a good job not only in listing our home but also selling it.  Marian and Carver, her husband, did everything possible to sell our home with the least amount of inconvenience to us.  They acted in a very professional and sincere may, which made us feel very comfortable.  Our home was sold within days of being listed and the entire transaction went very smoothly.  My wife and I cannot express  enough gratitude for the way they handled this sale. They are the very BEST and we would highly recommend them to anyone we know interested in buying or selling a home.

Hugh and Hazel Alexander


Patience, endurance and professionalism

I am writing to express my appreciation for the assistance you provided to me in both the sale of my home and the purchase of a new one.

Within one week of listing my property you not only achieved a sale, but at 3% over the list price.  And just one week later, you managed to find a suitable home for me. I can’t begin to express how happy I am with how quickly things went and with the least disruption to my life -- I think I need ankle weights to keep me down!

I wanted to mention some outstanding qualities that you demonstrated as my REALTORs throughout the whole experience - specifically patience, endurance and professionalism come to mind. Thank you, again, for all of your help.  

James Meadowcroft


Your counsel, guidance and high standard of professionalism

Now that Dec is behind us and a new leaf is turned and looking forward to the new year with a new sense of belonging in our new surroundings at Routliffe Lane, we feel that this is the appropriate time to write to you both and say thank you for a job well done.

After living at Brookdale for so many years and notwithstanding all of the problems associated with keeping and maintaining an old house that was a part of us, selling was necessary, but nevertheless, an exceptionally difficult decision and one that filled us with apprehension and sadness.

Your counsel, guidance and high standard of professionalism throughout the process from preparing the house for sale, the record time in which it was sold, to buying a new and modern townhouse, exceeded all of our expectations and we will always be grateful to you.

We have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone wanting to either buy or sell a house and I would not for a moment think of engaging any other REALTOR other than yourselves.

A. and L. de Sousa Costa


We appreciated your judgment and assistance

For someone who I had only a few telephone conversations with over a several year period, I felt that your instincts were very good as to the type of property we were looking for. We were in a situation where we had no time pressures and wanted to wait until we found the right house.

Rather than bring every house in the neighbourhood to our attention you only focused on those that were of genuine interest to us. This was something we really appreciated and it indicated to us that you really understand your clients.
Your social skills are excellent which made the whole experience very pleasurable.
We found you and your entire team to be very professional. I felt that I could always reach you and that you kept us up to date on the status of transactions, even when you were getting married. Any requests made to your staff were handled promptly and efficiently. Their phone manners were impeccable.  

We found you very knowledgeable in Real Estate matters. Because of your experience, we trusted your judgment. We noticed a lot of SOLD indicators on signs for properties that you
had listed. Also, a lot of signs in general with your name as the agent. This indicated that a lot of other people also trusted you.
The initial sale was relatively straightforward but it was afterwards that things got more complex. We appreciated your judgment and assistance with addressing the wiring situation in the house. Also, we would have sold our previous house through you except for the situation that I had unknowingly put myself in. You were very helpful and understanding relative to that complexity and again showed how professional you are.
Having not purchased a house in over 20 years and then buying a property well over a million dollars is definitely a huge decision to make. You provided excellent support throughout the process that was just the right amount without being obsessive.
We loved the "We are moving" cards that you gave us. Everyone commented on what an excellent idea they are. It was also a great way to show a picture of the house before we had moved in.
I guess most importantly of all, "We love the house." There have been some surprises... both negative and positive, but overall we are very pleased. Not quite settled yet, but gradually getting there.
We will highly recommend your team if anyone we know mentions that they are thinking of moving.
Dayle and Bill Hunt


In-depth knowledge of the market

I want to thank you very much for the excellent job you did when selling our home. As you are well aware, it is an extremely stressful time for all involved, and you made it easier. I feel we benefited from your tips on how to best show the house, your in-depth knowledge of the market and your professionalism in dealing with the buying agents. I mean, 7 days from listing to SOLD…and at $35,000 over listed price!!! It really doesn't get more painless than that!

We can't thank you enough, other than to say, if you want to use my note with prospective clients or attach it to your resume, please feel free. You were recommended to us by friends who had the same level of service (and results) and we will recommend you to our friends. We  actually enjoyed the experience! When you are in our area, please call, would love to have you over for coffee!!

Keep in touch, you'll be doing business with us again!!

Really understands the Toronto real estate market

Angela Evans, 
Manager, Relocation Services
TD Bank Financial Group
Dear Angie

I would like to sincerely thank you for recommending Marian Neal to assist us with the purchase of a new residence. As a sales representative with RE/MAX, Marian has been extremely helpful.  She has been unfailingly professional, polite and resourceful in our quest for a new home, as were Marian's staff. It is obvious that Marian really understands the Toronto real estate market.

As first time home buyers, all of our questions about the ins and outs of buying a home were patiently and thoroughly answered. Marian kept us well informed about the progress of our negotiations and made us feel she was watching out for our interests. I won't hesitate to recommend Marian's services to any interested parties.


Wendy Farnell Sloan  


No Hesitation in recommending your services

A somewhat belated yet heartfelt thanks for your help in the purchase of 125 Joicey for our son Adam.

It was quite a nerve-wracking time for us and for you too we're sure with 14 offers to cope with, however, your professionalism and wise counsel eased the process and led to a successful conclusion. We are all delighted at the result and my son and his family are now happily ensconced in their new home.

We will have no hesitation in recommending your services to our friends and others. Thanks again and best wishes.

Dyan and Ron Knight


Judgement enabled us to get the best deal

It is without hesitation that my husband and I recommend Marian Neal to anyone who is looking for a true real estate professional.

Marian Neal has been our agent for eleven years. In that time, she has represented us impeccably in the sale of two homes and the purchase of two others. In all cases, we feel that Marian's professionalism and judgment enabled us to get the best deal, whether on the buying or the selling end.  

We have also found that Marian works hard to earn client loyalty during and even long after a sale. In a recent problem with a house inspector, nearly a year after we bought our house, Marian lobbied effectively on our behalf. The problem was resolved to our satisfaction, due largely to Marian's stellar service.

I have recommended Marian to my friends and clients, and have always been thanked profusely for doing so. I am pleased to act as a reference for Marian Neal.

Joan Patterson


We had the feeling you could work some magic for us, and you did

Marian! Our gratitude to you is as big as our new lot size.

When we first met you we had the feeling you could work some magic for us, and you did. You found us a home that was everything we hoped to find and more. Then you helped us sell our home with a sincerity that could not be exceeded. Throughout all this, you have been what everyone wants in an agent but few people find: a friend.

Thank you for appearing at just the right time. For calling just often enough, persistent but never pushy.   For offering interminable patience in the face of our muddle-headedness and ever-fluctuating priorities. For helping us see that it is possible to trust a REALTOR. Thank you for your new ideas, your sense of humour, your honesty, and your dedication in sticking with us until we had the right property at the right price.

Marian, it has been such a pleasure to be represented by someone of your expertise, professionalism and personal charisma. You have won our fullest confidence.

Bill and Tracy Keenan


Your exemplary help in buying

This is just to let you know how happy we were with your assistance in selling our first house and your exemplary help in buying our second. We were very pleased with your pleasant demeanour.

You understood our needs and got our house sold in an extremely difficult market. We have recommended you to our friends and would be happy to recommend you to any potential clients of yours. We are also extremely pleased with the house that we purchased.  Without your help, we would not have been able to locate such a find.

David Hewitt and Gudrun Thomas


Immediately made me feel confident and comfortable

From the first phone call I received from you, Carver, I felt confident in my decision to work with you to sell my home.  You immediately made me feel confident and comfortable- and then to sell my house, in less than 4 days - wow!  You have been generous with your time, dedication and energy.  If I, or any of my friends or colleagues, are ever in the real estate market I will not fail to use and recommend you as a trustworthy and dedicated REALTOR.  Please also thank your assistant who also so patiently kindly settled my fears. 

Natalie Edgeworth


Always available, responded promptly

Marian was always available when we wanted and/or needed to meet with her and respectful of our time.  She responded promptly to all our questions and inquiries and always made us feel we came first during transactions.  She held open houses at our request and even assisted in preparing our home for sale.  She was very professional and accurate in setting price categories.  We value how supportive Marian was in both buying and selling.                                                     

Mr and Mr Harvey


Congratulate you on a fabulous year

Just a quick note to congratulate you on a fabulous year – those are impressive numbers representing a lot of very hard work!  It seems that Team Neal/Fraser is a power house.  I’m so glad for you on both a professional and personal level.  Long may it continue.  

Barbara Cooper


They were very patient with us

We felt that Marian and Carver were fabulous.  They were very patient with us and were always available to answer questions and take us out to see listings.  Thanks again!

Kyle and Nancy


As painless as possible

Not only would we recommend Marian Neal to friends and family who are in the market - we already have!  Thanks for making the process of finding and buying our first home as painless as possible.  We won’t hesitate to contact you when we’re moving.

Rick and Tamara Brown


They accepted my offer because they really liked Marian

I have known Marian Neal since 1985 when I was looking for a house in Toronto and met her at an open house.   

Marian worked very hard to find me a house in a safe area at a time when the real estate market was beginning to heat up.  We looked at a number of houses and finally found a semi in Leaside.  While we were making an offer, another prospective buyer was waiting outside.  Apparently, we both made the same offer and the owners told me that they accepted my offer because they really liked Marian and stayed in the same house until May of 2004.  During those years, Marian kept in touch with me.

In April 2004, I decided to sell my house and look for a condo. Carver Fraser had recently joined RE/MAX and he and Marian sold my house for well over the asking price, within a few days.  They found me a condo at a good price and I must say I was very impressed by their expertise and professional manner. Marian’s assistant, Alex Banks, was very helpful. I would highly recommend Marian and Carver to anyone in the market.

  J Cudmore  


No hesitation on our part to recommend Marian and Carver

We have known Marian for sometime and were aware of her knowledge of the Cricket Club area.

Marian and Carver were most helpful to Joan and I, and we are very pleased with the outcome on the sale of our property. No hesitation on our part to recommend Marian and Carver as capable real estate brokers.  

Joan and Grant Ince


It was a pleasure doing business with you

Ross and I would like to thank you for looking after the sale of our condo unit at The Bentley. 

You made it so much easier for us to deal by phone and fax, so we didn’t have to drive to the city. Betty called me to thank me for leaving the unit so  clean and tidy and to tell me how  much she is looking forward to living there.  I hope she enjoys it and finds it as convenient as we did during our time there.

Thank you Marian, it was a pleasure doing business with you.

Marion Thompson


His experience won us the house

Carver was great.  When push came to shove in our bidding war, his experience won us the house – without overpaying vs. the other bidders.  Your assistant was also very helpful, as she showed us a few houses when Carver was unavailable.  We were very particular in our search, and Carver was most patient!  We love our house!  Thanks.

Matt Denton and Pam Gardner


The Queen of North Toronto real estate

We owe you a huge thank you!  Wow!  Our neighbours saw the sold sign and know how much the house went for and were just stunned.  You need a tag line calling you the Queen of North Toronto real estate!  We owe you and Carver tons, it wouldn't be possible without you.  This experience was so smooth, there were no obstacles at all.  We'd love to see you guys to celebrate and meet the new couple as well.  That will be a great experience to learn about them and tell them about the neighbourhood.  We hope they will be happy.  Just let us know what works for you and your schedule in the future.  I'm returning home with the kids tomorrow, so it will be a welcome change.  Thanks again, you're awesome! 



Caring approach, were always there

Marian Neal and Carver Fraser are definitely a winning team.  Their support, help, advice and caring approach were always there.

Selling my house and buying a condominium went smoothly with their help.  They are a hard working team.

I will certainly recommend them to someone who is anticipating a move.

Patricia Hakala


Help and support with the whole process

Just wanted to share with you that Leigh and I received the keys to the condo last week and everything went smoothly. We were also very happy to see the small crack in the ceiling was repaired as well which was a nice bonus. We are slowly going to move into our new place over the next few weeks and we are both excited to make the move!

Thank you again for your help and support with the whole process - we are very happy with how it all turned out. Perhaps in five years or so we'll give you another call to help find us a proper house, in the meantime do stay in touch!

Patrick and Leigh Chappell


Making us feel very welcome in Canada

Thank you both very much for joining us. It was a great pleasure for us to chat to you and to be able to thank you in a very small way for all your efforts in making us feel very welcome in Canada and for ensuring that we have ended up in a lovely neighbourhood. We look forward to spending more time with you in the future.

Sandra, Sean and Naledi Kruger


Flawless service, excellent advice and prompt attention  

We have had several dealings with this team and in every case (the sale of my daughter’s house about 10 years ago, and the sale of 30 Joicey Boulevard in 2006) we have received flawless service, excellent advice, and prompt attention when we needed it. We can only have the highest praise for the excellent service we have received from this team. 

Dr. J. Anthony Dawson


I couldn’t have asked for more

Both Carver and Marian are very professional, organized and extremely knowledgeable about the Toronto real estate market.  Once I decided to list my home on the market, they became the facilitators to ensue that my home sold for the best price and within the shortest period of time.  In my case the result was 6 days on the market, 2 competing offers and a final price, which was over the asking price.  I couldn’t have asked for more. Comfortably, I would recommend their services.

Wendy Cheropita


You guys were awesome

Happy sellers, upon seeing their home advertised on the internet

Wow, just clicked the website.  You guys are awesome!


Giant Thank You

How horrible for me not to send you the first email today with a giant THANK YOU.

We have marvelled last night and again today about how painlessly smooth this whole thing seemed. And your professionalism is very much tied into the experience. So, many, many thanks for that.

And many thanks again. I talked to Paul and Gail next door and said I couldn't recommend you more highly.



Everything looks a little brighter today

You were fantastic through all of this, we can't thank you enough. Everything looks a little brighter today :-)


Your patience was appreciated

Thanks for your efforts Marian. I know it wasn't the easiest of situations, your patience was appreciated.


Great Job!

You guys are very special and we can't thank you enough for doing such a great job!



Your love of what you do is evident

Congrats on your RE/MAX award...saw your picture in the paper this morning!  You certainly deserve an award as you really work hard and your love of what you do is evident in the way you do your job so well!!!


We are still busy doing things to the condo, but took a break and went to Mexico for a week a few weeks ago. We needed to refresh ourselves...it's been a long stretch! We are having fun and the place is starting to come around…Carver will not recognize it!

Marilyn and Don


Everyone we have recommended loves the service

Thanks for your card! We are enjoying parenthood and being back in Ontario. Maybe we will make it back to Toronto eventually. Just wanted to let you know everyone we have recommended you guys to loves the service they get.  You guys do a fantastic job!

Hope to see you one of these days.

Catherine, Bill and Luke Deplaedt


Knowledge and professional integrity

Marian Neal offered her professional guidance to us while we were in the early stages of formulating plans to downsize and sell our family home.  Searching for the ideal house for our retirement living became more of a challenge than we had imagined and Marian was a continuing support throughout the months of assessing our priorities with the market availability.

Marian made a genuine effort to learn about our life style and personal expectations in order to direct our search while recognizing our preferences.  In addition to the many places Marian arranged for viewing she kept us routinely appraised of neighbouring sales as well as updated market information.  The months of searching developed into years during which we changed our direction several times.  In spite of these times of indecision Marian remained positive and patient and we were able to rely on her to give our concerns understating attention and priority.

We would hope that everyone with plans to sell or buy real estate would be fortunate enough to obtain an agent with the knowledge and professional integrity of Marian Neal and we truly wish her many successful years ahead.

Mariylnn and Ross Austen


Thank you for your advice and guidance

We just wanted to thank you for all the help you gave us.  Searching for our first home can be a daunting task, but you made it fun!  You knew what we wanted and delivered!! Thank you once again for your advice and guidance!

Julie “J.B.” Pool


Strong ethical values

It is a pleasure to take this opportunity to praise you for the selling of our home last March 15. Having lived at 61 Alvin Avenue for thirty years we had long been out of the real estate market experience, although we had bought and sold three houses in Toronto prior to 61 Alvin Avenue.

The prospect of selling what we knew to be our last house was daunting.  Your experience, expertise and strong ethical values guided us successfully through this ordeal.  Your instincts regarding the real estate market at the time proved to be “dead on”.  Your patience with the two of us through the “nervous times” was the right mixture of “friendship” and “business”.

You are a well-matched team and we will always think of you with gratitude, and hope for your continued success, professionally and personally.  

B and C Zaharuk


We appreciate your calmness

Thanks again for being so fair during this process. It's definitely been a bittersweet process but it went very smoothly. We appreciated your calmness and professionalism from beginning to end.  I know I am thrilled not to clean the house anymore! … I am sure we will be in touch soon with regards to closing. Thanks again for everything and we are so glad we decided to use your services.  

Robyn, Neil, Cole, Avery and Ozzi


They are the very best

When we first met Marian Neal we immediately knew she would do a good job not only in listing our home but also selling it.  Marian, and Carver, her husband, did everything possible to sell our home with the least amount of inconvenience to us. They acted in a very professional and sincere may, which made us feel very comfortable. Our home was sold within days of being listed and the entire transaction went very smoothly.  My wife and I cannot express enough gratitude for the way they handled this sale. They are the very BEST and we would highly recommend them to anyone we know interested in buying or selling a home.

H Alexander


Your service was exceptional

Thank you very much for the nice card and note you sent us. Thanks also for the Home Show passes. We appreciate you thinking of us and we will certainly think of you if someone we know is looking for a REALTOR. Your service was exceptional!

S Orford


Very calming presence  

Marian, thanks for all your work. This has been a bit of a nightmare.  You were always there and very calming presence.  Thanks to Carver also.

A and E Kingstone


Your energy, sense of humour, professionalism

Thank you very much for the generous gift today. We will definitely enjoy it tomorrow evening, our last one together for a while, as we toast to new beginnings and adventures on the horizon.

We've both enjoyed working with you. Your energy, sense of humour, professionalism, and ability to give good advice are all wonderful attributes, which we appreciated very much. We would be happy to recommend you to friends and family.  

Alanna and Dann


We hope to work with you again soon

What other agents say ...

Thanks so much for all your hard work on 454 Elm Road!  Even doing it all by fax, you were super nice and made the process a pleasure. We hope to work with you again soon!

Nicole and the Julie Kinnear Team


Our first home buying experience was fun and successful

Right from the beginning (August '09) we found you both to be extremely prompt, efficient and helpful. We never felt like "dumb first-time home owners" and we never felt any pressure to buy or look at a home we weren't interested in.

You seemed to have confidence (even when we didn't) that we would know something was right when we found it! And we did!

We appreciated you finding us another reliable agent to go through our house with us when you were away and we felt confident in all of our bidding experiences with you. Thank you Marian for being so quick on our last offer.

Overall, our first home buying experience was fun and successful! Thank you! (It didn't hurt that you two were fun to hang out with!) Thank you again!

Our property web site looks terrific

Our property web site looks terrific!  I forgot to mention -- I think it is such a great idea that you include a mortgage calculation!  (You and Carver are true professionals)

Got your message last night and saw the listing this morning.  It looks good – thanks to you and your staff for working so hard to get it posted.


Everything looks brighter today

You were fantastic through all of this, we can't thank you enough. Everything looks a little brighter today :-)

Thanks again for all of your help over the past many months!  We're really excited!


“Hail Mary” Play with the last offer

Thanks for everything Carver; especially your “Hail Mary” play with the last offer.

We enjoyed the search from the beginning


First time buyers

We would like to thank for you for the excellent job you in did in helping us purchase our condo.  As first-time homebuyers we really appreciate that you took the time to explain the process to us, and to answer all of our questions along the way. We felt that you really listened to what we wanted, and understood what we were looking for. Thank you for taking the initiative to work with the other agent to negotiate a workable compromise for us and the seller.

We enjoyed the search from beginning to end and are extremely happy with the new home that you helped us find. 

Thank you again for all the expertise, time and effort you put into our search!

Pleasure working with you

Other agents say ...

It truly was a pleasure working with you on this venture. Thanks for all of your help with getting it done.

Thanks, Carver. You and Marian deserve an extra drink tonight to celebrate a job well done!


Happy buyer

Thank you Thank you!

OMG!!!! It's spectacular. It's going to be great! Thank you! Thank you! I really appreciate all your help with this. Putting the notes on the doors was a great idea.”

We door knocked to help Barb find a townhouse. She got a lovely new home.



The Seller

Wonderful.  Thanks for orchestrating this surprising turn of events this week.

Happy buyers and sellers refer their friends to us

Mike, have a look at Marian's website, putting her name in Google brought me right there.  As I said, she helped us sell a home (in the Leaside area) and purchase (in The Beach), I can't say enough about the terrific job she did for us.  I also know Marian is very familiar with the Yonge/Lawrence areas as well.  Have a look at the website, it has interesting information about some of the neighbourhoods you mentioned.  I know you will find the right home!

I hope you are well Marian, Dave and I are still thrilled with our home on Avion Avenue!



Help us to see things from another perspective

Samantha and I wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you for your help and advice last night.  We were discussing how happy we are that we don't have agents who are pressuring us, but rather who help us to see things from another perspective.  So thank you.


From a supplier of services to the Neal and Fraser Team

God bless you for making a special call and setting yourself apart from the crowd. I will make damn sure your call gets done by day’s end.

Thanks for being so understanding of others,


Marian was a calming force

Marian Neal was a pleasure to work with in both the search for our new home, and the sale of our current.  She is extremely professional and knowledgeable while still able to maintain a good sense of humour, which is key in the stressful business of real estate.  We always felt as though we were in capable hands and often deferred to her advice in making our decisions – and were consistently pleased with the outcomes!

During the negotiations, Marian was a calming force.  Her expertise really came through as she was able to obtain maximum value in the sale of our home – an unprecedented amount for our neighbourhood. We would confidently recommend her to any of our family and friends

Wouldn’t hesitate to secure Marian for any future real estate needs

Although there were many competent real estate agents to chose from, I felt fortunate to have chosen Marian Neal to guide us through the process. She was very professional in all aspects, and promptly attentive to all our concerns. I certainly wouldn’t hesitate to secure Marian for any future real estate needs.

Whatever you touch turns to gold!

Just wanted to say thank you with all my heart for all you have done for us!

I realize the value of having your expertise

When I checked my bank balance on line yesterday I was struck again at the great price you got for us on the sale of our home.  In thinking about the offers, I realize the value of having your expertise in managing the process.  Thanks for your clarity throughout the process and for making a daunting task as quick and painless as possible.  We are very grateful!

A quick sale to a great buyer

Thanks again for facilitating a quick sale to a great buyer - most appreciated!



Marian & Carver just handle it all

Marian & Carver just handle it all. They give you answers before you think of the questions. Highly professional, genuinely sincere, great fun. I feel like I can trust what they tell me. I tell anyone that I hear needs an agent that these guys are the BOMB!



Achieved more than we anticipated

Marian and Carver were beside us every step of the way through the selling and buying process, offering sound advice based on their many years of experience. Their personal service and friendly approach were very reassuring. Thanks to their negotiating skills we were able to achieve more than we anticipated and are very happy with the result. Highly recommended.



Many established connections with potential buyers

My Mother sold her house recently, after her family lived there for 75 years. This was a very hard decision to make for Mom as you can imagine. However Marian and Carver made it less difficult with their caring professional manner.  We found throughout the process that they explained the process very well, and always communicated in a timely way with us. Marian and Carver proved to know the market very well and had many established connections with potential buyers. They negotiated on our behalf very professionally.  We would highly recommend this great team. We wouldn't have wanted to do this without them.



Tenacity and focus

In spite of a market that was spotty for high end luxury homes, their tenacity and focus allowed me to get the price that I wanted and needed for my property. They also found me the perfect property that met my needs. I would recommend the team for any residential requirements.


An incredible amount of work marketing our house

Marian did an incredible amount of work marketing our house and got as a fantastic result. We will definitely use her again!  


She was so thorough in her approach

We can recommend Marian Neal to the highest level. She was so thorough in her approach that when potential buyers came to view the house they had access to - quality photos, a video tour, floor plan, list of updates, and lot site plan. Her knowledge of real estate values in the area, resulted in us receiving multiple offers and selling for over asking in just seven days. We are so thankful for Marian's experience, quiet assurance and invaluable advice. She made it quick and painless.


Responsiveness, knowledge, professionalism and integrity

We have bought and sold many properties using Marian and Carver as our agents. They are a valuable asset in all facets of the real estate process. I can highly recommend them for responsiveness, knowledge, professionalism and integrity.


Extremely professional and very helpful

We found the realtors (Marian and Neal and Carver Fraser) to be extremely professional and very helpful in assisting us in executing our purchase of our condo. We enjoyed working with both of them.
