I have taken great pleasure in working with these wonderful people and am very honoured to post their positive feedback regarding my services and business relationship. Should you need any references please feel free to contact me and I will be more then happy to supply you with a list of satisfied clients.
We purchased our first home back in 2012 with Rosemarie Wallace and Mary Ann Stokke in the Meadowvale, Mississauga area. Because we had such a positive experience with the purchase of our first home, we decided to contact them again this year with regards to selling our house in Mississauga and purchasing a home in Oshawa.
From the initial meeting to go over the state and value of our home to the home staging, 24/7 availability and negotiations, they far exceeded our expectations thus making our experience a memorable one. We ended up in a bidding war situation just days after our home went on the market and the outcome was outstanding (plenty of private showings and a very busy open house). Both Rosemarie and Mary Ann took control and advised us of the best strategy in dealing with multiple offers, reviewed all offers thoroughly with us and were extremely friendly and professional.
Had we used a different agent/agents we don’t think our house would have shown as well and sold as fast as it did. We never realized how hard this whole process would be, especially because selling and buying a home is so emotionally draining and there are so many factors involved when trying to sell and buy a house so close together. Again, Rosemarie and Mary Ann worked collaboratively to provide us with the best options and recommendation that were suitable based on our Life & family needs.
We are confident that choosing this great duo will be the best real estate decision you will ever make when it comes to buying and or selling your home.
Thank you for everything and we hope to keep in touch!
Keep up the GREAT WORK

The process of selling and buying a home is a constant push/pull of emotions – a real mix of excitement, anxiety, fear and ultimately joy. To sell and buy is one of the, if not the, biggest decisions you can possibly make in your life. The key is to find agents who will guide you not only through the business process, but the emotional component as well.
Rosemarie and Sandy came to us almost through random chance and have reaffirmed our belief that good people will come into your lives at pivotal moments – all you have to do is open the door and trust.
Throughout the entire selling process Rose and Sandy went above and beyond all expectations – they demanded much of us but we trusted their judgment and guidance. They instinctively knew the key things that we needed to do in order to put our house on the market and it sold quickly.
Immediately we began to look for a new home. We were in constant contact with Rose and Sandy and they worked tirelessly and with great effort to help guide our decision making process, offer advice and, most importantly, ensure we did not compromise and got the home we had only dreamed of.
When we reflect back on the past few weeks, we don’t remember the anxiety, the nervousness, the sleepless nights and the stress. We remember their care, their humour and their laid back nature that put us at ease and made the process fun and enjoyable.
Those are the kinds of memories that we will cherish and carry with us forever.

“When we found out we were expecting our first child, we decided it was time to sell our Toronto condo and look for a more family friendly home and neighbourhood. This should have been an exciting time; however, after having endured an extremely negative experience with our last realtor, my husband and I were dreading the endeavour.enter Rosemarie Wallace, who came highly recommended by my sister (she had just sold her condo with Rosemarie and bought her first house with Rosemarie). Our eyes have been opened and we have seen the light!!!
My husband was reluctant to follow Rose’s advice regarding the staging of our condo at first, but when we sold in the first week of listing with multiple offers resulting in a sale price of $20,000 above our asking price, you could say he was a little more than converted into a true believer of the “staging to sell” process and Rosemarie’s expertise. Rose made the entire experience of selling and buying pleasurable, exciting and fun. Her professionalism, integrity, proficiency and straightforward honesty were a welcome change from the pushy, arrogant and insincere breed of realtors we had dealt with in the past.
Above all, Rose made it very clear to us that finding our perfect home was an important priority to her.she truly cares about her clients and their well being. So here we are living happily ever after in a beautiful home in a wonderful neighbourhood, and we have Rosemarie to thank. Not only are we her biggest fans and promoters, we are clients and friends for life.Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Rose!”

“As first time homebuyers Rose was the best Agent we could’ve asked for. She has a great knack for helping people identify what they’re really looking for in a home. She walked us through the whole process of home buying, really taking the stress out of it. Her dedication, no nonsense attitude, diligent searching, and anytime-availability made buying our first home such an enjoyable experience! We’re so happy we found the perfect house! Thanks Rose!”
“Rosemarie has my business for life! Although I was only looking for a condo rental, she was kind, patient and unbelievably responsive. A mere condo rental was not a significant piece of business but she treated me as if I were buying a multi-million dollar home. Rosemarie understands that when buying a home, be it very large or very small, it is still the client’s home and it is extremely important to them. She made a challenging process both simple and fun. I can’t recommend Rosemarie enough. When I buy next, she is my first call.”
“Rosemarie made the job of buying and selling my house exceptionally easy. She represented my interests to the fullest and got 100% of my asking price on my home sale. 10 years from now I’ll be calling on her services again!”
Happy New Home Owner
“Rosemarie was a stranger to us 6 years ago when we met her at an open house. From that day on she provided us with sound and honest advice on both purchase and sale of our homes. In a market where integrity has become a rare commodity, Rosemarie has demonstrated that she would be unfaltered and provided us with remarkable service both times which makes it easy to recommend her to friends and family.”
“From the moment we met you at an open house, it was evident that you “loved” your job! Your integrity, passion, dedication, and knowledge about real estate made the entire home-buying/selling process appear seamless… From your research, home staging and design advice, to your professional marketing pieces, your professionalism is outstanding. Thank you for doing what you do so well!”

“Rosemarie Wallace demonstrates professionalism and is a top-notch real estate agent. Her knowledge, attention to detail and ease of accessibility made me relaxed and very comfortable when dealing with her. Besides being a great real estate agent, Rosemarie is a true community philanthropist. She and her family are actively involved in the community and volunteer countless hours to assisting a variety of organizations. Add Rosemarie’s bubbly personality and never-ending energy level and you’ll find Rosemarie to be one of the best, dedicated real estate agents in the business.”
“Buying a home is one of the most important decisions any family will make. The right neighborhood, schools, future development and many other factors go into this difficult decision. Choosing the right partner to work with is the key in making this a positive experience. Fortunately for our family, we found Rosemarie Wallace. Rosemarie has worked with us in buying three homes now and we cannot thank her enough for the guidance, support and now friendship she has provided through the years. She is a professional in her field and we would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone making such an important decision for their family.”
“Rosemarie has been our agent through all of our buys and sells, and has always represented us with the utmost courtesy and respect. She is exceptionally hardworking and always put us first, ensuring we make the best decisions in trying to reach our home buying goals. We highly recommend Rosemarie & we value her judgement, work ethic and friendship.”
“Rosemarie is very professional. Goes the extra mile for her clients. Although I originally was not ready to buy a condo, Rosemarie had me on the backburner and still emailed me the latest real estate info to view. With her patience and diligence, she not only found the right one for me, but guided me as a first time buyer.”
“Rosemarie you did a wonderful job … patient, professional, and provided the kind of advice and guidance we needed in order to find the perfect house and neighborhood for us. What I was also struck by is that you weren’t selling us a house, you were helping us relocate to a new community. That meant touring the neighborhood, pointing out things of importance to use (like great restaurants, grocery stores, etc.), providing information about utilities, and directing us to trades (painters, etc.) that are reliable. Overall an outstanding home buying experience.”

“In our move to Mississauga. Rosemarie provided exceptional help. She patiently helped us understand the local market and effectively narrow down our choices to the home that was right for us. Rosemarie ensures she really understands what is important when it comes to picking your next home. She is both professional and easy to work with, We would sincerely recommend her.”

“I was thoroughly impressed with the way Rose handled the sale of my condo. It was staged to sell, then listed on the market for less than one week when an offer to purchase (above asking price) was presented. It was a smooth and flawless transaction that happened in a blink of an eye. Next on the agenda, finding our “perfect” home, that was going to be a challenge. Ron wanted “new”; I wanted an established older property. A double car garage was his priority, and at the top of my list were mature trees and a spacious yard in a community oriented neighbourhood. In the end Rose managed to find us our perfect home. Furthermore, she helped us figure out what was most important about purchasing our first home together; this set us free from getting hung up on minor details and saved us from a lot of arguments!!
Working with Rose was such a pleasure that we now refer all our friends and family to her. Ron and I truly believe we’ve found a great friend as well as someone who understands what a home really means to us. We feel 110% confident in her abilities to find the perfect home for our friends and loved ones, and recently Rose did just that for my sister and her husband, two more happy clients for life to add to her long list! Rose, thank you for all of your hard work and your invaluable advice!”

“It is now eight months since we moved into our new home. The home has more space, privacy, and a beautiful neighbourhood. The family is excited and feels more energized to face the challenges of settling in Canada as new immigrants.
Rosemary, we want to thank you for enabling us to start the process of searching for the right home with your help and your company, Re/Max. Before we met you, we had met a number of agents who were only after serving their own interests. When we first met you in your office, you gave us a straight talk and an honest advice on the process of acquiring property and the services that you provide as a realtor. You were quick to understand our needs and circumstances as new comers to Canada who had limited financial resources, insufficient credit history little knowledge on how to identify a suitable home.
Thank you for your guidance that enabled us to assess our financial ability and identify a home that was suitable for our needs as a family, and successfully go through the steps necessary to close the purchase.
During our several visits to prospective homes that were on sale, we never felt pressured towards making decisions. Your straight talk and honest advice enabled us to make the right choices. Now we are comfortably settled in our new home and every member of the family is happy.
We trust that your professional experience as a realtor and your great ability to understand the needs of your customers will continue to be a source of hope and inspiration to home buyers, particularly to new immigrants to Canada who have to face the challenges involved in acquiring a home as the try to satisfy their Canadian dream.
Rosemarie, thank you again for being our star.”
