In March 2010, I began searching for my first home to purchase in Guelph, ON. Being a 27 year old single female, it seemed like a daunting task. First, hoping to narrow down the type of housing I was interested in, I began filling out online questionnaires on various MLS and realtor websites. Almost instantly I had email replies from Andra Arnold, offering her assistance in my search. I agreed to meet Andra to discuss my home-hunting plan and upon this meeting was immediately filled with a sense of trust, comfort, and capability on her part. Not only was she extremely knowledgeable of the market, and market practices, but her warm and enthusiastic personality set me at ease, and provided me with a new-found confidence and excitement needed for my search. She immediately coordinated email listings sent to me daily within my preferred price range and style of property, and followed up promptly with any questions I had pertaining to the process, or becoming a first time home-owner in general. She quickly booked properties I was interested in viewing and so began my house-hunting adventures! Within one week of viewing multiple properties, I had made my decision. We closed the deal with the homeowners, and Andra was there each step of the way with me, coaching and overseeing everything went according to my wishes. Her perseverance, dedication, and attention to detail was truly appreciated, and our adventures house-hunting together will never be forgotten. For me, a first time home buyer, she transformed what seemed like an overwhelming and frustrating search, into an eye-opening and very exciting journey. Andra Arnold is a remarkable realtor, and now a remarkable friend. Blair Josey First time home-owner, Guelph, ON.
