Heather & Wes

My fiancé and I met Joanna at an open house. She was very friendly and answered all of our questions even though we had no idea what we were doing! A year later when we were ready to start looking for a house, we called Joanna since she made a good first impression on us. From our very first meeting at a coffee shop in a snowstorm, we felt very comfortable with Joanna. She was honest, knowledgeable and upfront with us about what we should expect from the Toronto housing market. She walked us through each step of the buying process, taking the time to explain everything. Anytime we needed her, she was always quick to respond to our emails, texts or panicked phone calls! She took a lot of the stress out of the process. She is very dedicated and really cares about her clients, doing whatever she can to get them what they want. Not only is Joanna an amazing realtor, she's also a really great person to have on your side, especially if you are first-home buyers like us.

Anthony & Michelle - Joanna and Melanie are fantastic!

We met the sisters when we were thinking of selling our Toronto house. We interviewed a few agents, but the moment we met Joanna and Melanie we knew they were the ones to sell our property. It was immediately clear that they would go above and beyond to get a quick sale for the best price. The effort they put into staging and marketing our property was beyond anything that we expected. They spent many hours walking us through the process of getting our house ready for sale, and worked closely with the stagers to get the best results. They even invested their own time and resources to make it perfect. Our house looked so beautiful when they were done with it, they had to remind us that we were not keeping it! The marketing photos , flyers and brochures looked amazing! The Wilson Sisters were professional, reliable and trustworthy

We would recommend them highly and without hesitation to anyone thinking of selling their home.

Annalisa Rubinas – She made the whole family feel comfortable.

Melanie was a pleasure to work with. She is very efficient and was always available to help

us on everything. She made the whole family feel comfortable, we could ask her anything and everything that we don’t know or unsure of about the process selling & buying. She gave us good advice in preparing our houses for staging/showing, pricing and accepting a good offer. She was there with us when we were emotional about selling our house, she supported us all throughout the process. She made herself available to see as many houses we wanted, she is very patient, never pushed us to buy, she provided us with valuable infos and advise. We are happy with our new house, thanks to Melanie. I would definitely recommend her to friends, relatives and potential home buyers that I would come across with.

Thanks a lot, Melanie!!!

Sandra Drygas – The level of customer service is unmatched.

I have worked with The Wilson Sisters for more than one real estate adventure and I plan on sticking with them for years to come! The level of customer service is unmatched in the real estate world! Great work Melanie & Joanna!

Elissa & Irwin Lui – They were both really fun to work with

We loved working with Melanie and Joanna - and did so on the purchase of our condo back in 2005, as well as the sale of that condo and purchase of our house this year (2011) in Trinity Bellwoods/Queen West neighbourhood. They were both really fun to work with, patient, helpful and knowledgeable about the area we were looking in. They guided us away from questionable properties and helped us find a house we're really happy with. I look forward to working with them again when we move next!

Heather and David: The service and personal attention we received from Joanna was top notch!

The service and personal attention we received from Joanna was top notch. From the day of our first meeting through purchasing and selling, she was attentive, professional and knowledgeable. The staging consultation provided to us along with Joanna’s expertise was invaluable to getting our house ready to sell and we firmly believe these were strong factors in us receiving multiple offers on our home. Joanna was in contact with us every step of the way and continued to provide us with helpful information long after closing. We would not hesitate to recommend Joanna to any prospective buyer and/or seller.

T.H. – I am grateful that she steered the smooth sales and purchases of four properties in downtown Toronto for me.

Joanna responds to clients’ needs with the clients’ best interests at heart. Her attention to details, reservoir of patience and work ethnic have made her a joy to work with. I am grateful that she steered the smooth sales and purchases of four residential properties in downtown Toronto for me. A mid-career professional, Toronto

Scott and Jeremy (Video) – Melanie gave us great advice and had lots of expertise.

Paolo H – Mel will go above and beyond the call of duty.

My friend has raved about Melanie and referred her to me as my buying and selling agent. After having worked with Mel for several months, I can totally appreciate my friend’s enthusiasm. Work ethics, integrity, honesty, intelligence, patience, knowledge and so much more…Mel will go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure you’re taken care of. In my opinion, she’s the best real estate agent in Ontario and I will highly recommend Melanie to anyone looking to buy or sell their place.

The Maynards – We trust Mel completely

Mel was referred to me by a friend who has a lot of Real Estate knowledge. We had a bad experience purchasing our first home and thus were skeptical of the whole industry. I am extremely pleased to tell you that Mel laid all our fears to rest. Beyond the great communication, knowledge, and insight, she was honest. Mel made one action that had us trust her completely. There was a house we liked, and she gave us some valuable information that made us reconsider and purchase a place that was a lower price. I’m sure there are some agents who would have just said, “Great”, complete the paper work and taken their commission. Not Mel, she had our family in mind. In addition, she knew that we are planning to be in our new house for the long term so it’s not that she could have expected us to user her again in a few years. Mel saved us money on both the sale of our old home and purchase of our new house. We have already recommended her to a few friends and are pleased to provide this written endorsement.

Darren & Amanda Portelli – Melanie & Joanna kept us on the right track

We decided to work with Melanie and Joanna Wilson to sell our condos and buy our first home, and have no regrets whatsoever. Melanie and Joanna were very great at prepping us for what was expected ahead, and very patient with our questions and concerns throughout the whole process. Above all, both Melanie and Joanna were working around the clock for us, to suit our schedules, replying to emails quicker than we would have ever imagined/hoped for. When purchasing in a market such as Toronto, real estate moves so quickly, an efficient approach like this is more than important….as we have heard of several horror stories from different buyers/friends. In buying, Melanie and Joanna worked closely together to ensure that our goals were met. They consistently showed a level of professionalism, adapting with us through our learning curve, and used their experience/expertise to keep us on the right track. In selling our condos, Melanie went above and beyond what was expected, and was more than willing to expand beyond the “traditional” means of selling/advertising. Her personable, well researched & resourceful approach was beyond beneficial.

Anne-Marie – Melanie & Joanna made things stress free and helped me get a very quick sale.

Melanie and Joanna were great! I called them up, arranged a time that was convenient for me and Melanie came and told me what I needed to do in my home to make it more appealing to prospective buyers. Melanie took care of all the paperwork so this was stress free for me. Great pictures of my home were taken and it resulted in a very quick sale! Joanna’s services were also great, communicating via email was quick and they were able to answer all my questions. I would not hesitate to recommend them to friends and family.

Megan & Michael – We were thrilled with Melanie

We were thrilled with Melanie’s services in the sale of our home. We found her professional and personable, and really felt she put our best interests first. She gave us good advice on readying the house for viewing, and when the first set of photos didn’t turn out to her satisfaction she brought someone else in to retake them. She did a great job setting the price and promoting the house to generate a ton of interest. She followed up by proving herself a sharp negotiator, and twice used her quick thinking turned unexpected challenges to our advantage. When the buyer’s home inspector made an inaccurate claim about the property, Melanie brought in a highly-respected inspector, on short notice, with whom even the buyer’s agent couldn’t argue. With her help, we had accepted an offer within 3 days of putting our place on the market. We will definitely be calling her when we are ready to move back to the city.

Judith & David Willis – She is industrious, honest, forthright and dedicated

Melanie was very efficient in selling our property in Brampton. She is industrious, honest and forthright in her recommendations, and dedicated to her clients. Her research and the information she provided us, as well as her almost daily updates, was appreciated. Both she and Ross made the final transaction as easy and convenient as possible for us. Thank you and all the best to your whole team.

Karen & Gareth Cull: Joanna was an amazing agent and a truly lovely person...

Joanna was an amazing agent and a truly lovely person. She is professional, personable, ethical and extremely knowledgeable. She made the buying/selling process seamless and guided us every step of the way. We never felt rushed or pressured and we found a new home in the exact location we wanted. By following her lead we were able to sell our home quickly, easily and for a price that made us all happy. Joanna is a 10/10 agent and a 10/10 person to have on your side. Thanks Joanna!!

Tamara Forbes: She ensured we understood exactly what was going on.

“Our Experience with the Wilson Sisters”

My husband and I sold our condo in Liberty Village in June 2014 with the assistance of Joanna Wilson, who is part of the Wilson Sisters’ team. The experience from beginning to end was seamless. Joanna made our experience enjoyable and stress free. She was always diligent in handling all inquiries from myself or my husband and walked us through every step of the way, to ensure we fully understood the process and I truly felt she had our best interest in mind. Through this hectic time it’s easy to become stressed in a world where the real estate market can be new to the buyers or sellers who need to act to quickly to ensure deals are closed on time. When dealing with Joanna, she ensured we understood exactly what was going on, and would never hesitate to follow up with us consistently to ensure we were content with the process. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a real estate agent to contact the Wilson sister team, who exercise professionalism and expertise to the highest degree.

Thank you again to Joanna for such a great experience in selling our condo!

Tamara Forbes, Client of Wilson Sisters

William and Laura – everything you could ask for in a Realtor and more!

Selling: in 5 days the Wilson Sisters had 75+ showings booked, two packed open houses, helped us through a tense competitive offer situation to sell for a great big bunch over asking.

Purchasing: all concerns raised early, seller pushed for maximum accommodations, and all required concessions. Questions are addressed before they are asked, they are experts at generating traffic and handling touchy situations. Individually, they are everything you could ask for in a Realtor and more.

Together, the Wilson sisters bring their different approaches together to determine the best asking price, apply optimal marketing solutions, and get the very best deal done for their buyers and sellers.

Our 3rd transaction with Melanie Wilson now complete – next time we move, it will be with Melanie and Joanna by our side.

Don Antonello – Working with Melanie was a great experience.

Working with Melanie was a great experience in the sale of my condo. She had great advice in staging the condo to optimize the appeal to potential buyers. With a single blitz the condo was sold VERY quickly and for an amazing price. Melanie’s knowledge of the area was a huge asset for the sale. I would recommend Melanie to anyone looking to buy or sell in the city of Toronto. Thank you Melanie for everything.

MO – you are by far the best!

Thank you SO much. I have worked with many real estate agents in the past and I can genuinely say that you are by far the best! Your thoroughness, attention to detail and thoughtfulness in addition to your expertise are amazing. If/when my husband and I decide to move, we will definitely be reaching out to you and if anyone is looking to move, I would – without hesitation – recommend you. Thank you again and I hope to work with you again.

Katie Bainbridge: She made a potentially very stressful situation very smooth and easy. 

I was recommended Joanna by a friend in New Zealand who was looking for a house in Toronto. At the time, my husband and I were not planning on moving to Toronto but I was curious about the market and was hopeful that I could convince my kiwi husband to make the move at some point. Joanna happily sent me listings that were tailored to my criteria if I were ever to move and she checked in occasionally to see if there was any progress on the decision. About eight months later, our circumstances changed and we were ready to move. I contacted Joanna and she gave me lots of advice and carved out some time for me while I made a flying visit to Toronto to find a house. My husband couldn’t come so I had my mother and my seven year old daughter with me and less than one week to find the perfect house within a very tight budget. Joanna made a potentially very stressful situation very smooth and easy. She helped me understand the process, kept me under control when bidding, offered lots of support and was always available to answer questions. While waiting for almost two hours to find out the result of a bid on a house, she was great company too! And she found my family the perfect house well within our budget. Thanks Joanna!

Marta D: She's patient, intuitive, kind and not pushy...

Melanie is doing her job for the right reasons. She’s patient, intuitive, kind and not pushy which is really a breath of fresh air, especially when you’re a first time buyer and need to figure out the market. I met her one morning, and on the same day, I found my place – beautiful, spacious and with a mezzanine, which is exactly what I wanted. I guess the main difference is that, in no time, she listened, understood my needs, knew the market, all in all, we meshed well. She took me to my future place and it was everything I wanted. The rest was easy and I’m somewhat surprised as buying a house is far easier that I thought – you just have to surround yourself with the right people!

Dave V. – Always had a smile.

Joanna was a pleasure to work with as a first time home buyer. Every question answered, no matter how silly they seemed. Always had a smile, no matter how many places we had to see. Helped get me the place I wanted, no matter how many bidders there were. What more can I say? Thanks, Joanna!

Steve Watts – Having Mel on my side was one of the best decisions I’ve made.

If it wasn’t for Melanie, I wouldn’t now be enjoying my amazing loft at The Verve. She was super swift to respond, totally realistic when setting my expectations, and knew precisely when to play hardball on my behalf. She knew exactly how to leverage my situation to secure for me a great deal in a sellers’ market. She knows when to listen – and when to act. Having Mel on my side was one of the best decisions I’ve made, and I would recommend her wholeheartedly.

Rita Eskudt – Joanna took us under her wing, with grace and patience.

My 89-year old mother and I quite literally stumbled into Joanna at an open house. It is not often that you meet someone under those circumstances and realize that it was a relationship meant to be. Joanna took us under her wing…with grace and patience. My mother is extremely fussy and Joanna always deferred to her preferences and opinions. Over the course of three months, Joanna found the perfect home for my mother at Granite Place. She endeared herself to the both of us and did an outstanding job. Buying real estate is emotional and challenging, particularly in the City of Toronto. Her attention to detail and follow-up was amazing. I would highly recommend Joanna to anyone wanting to experience a difference in real estate.

T&V – Joanna has a talent to listen and understand your needs.

We are delighted to recommend Joanna as an effective, experienced, thoughtful and caring real estate professional who is there for you. She is very intelligent in the decision-making process being an excellent advocate of her clients. Joanna has a talent to listen and understand your needs. Her collaborative nature, patience, expertise and skills are greatly appreciated.

Tom Van Impe – Couldn’t have asked for a better agent.

I was very impressed with Joanna from Day 1. I started looking for a place to live when I was living in another part of the country, and she was very helpful, insightful, and quick to respond. I delayed my decision by about 2 years and she kept in touch, was very professional, and did not push anything on me. When I did decide to dive into the condo market, she was eager to meet and see what I was looking for, where I was looking and what my budget was. Needless to say, I flip flopped on all of those decisions over a number of months, and she was very patient throughout. I finally came to my final criteria, we met, and before I knew it she had a number of very nice properties set up for me to take a look at. Her preparation was impeccable. The decision to buy was made quickly thanks to Joanna’s hard work and thoroughness. She offered great advice that was best for me with absolutely no pressure. I love the condo that I bought, and I am very thankful that Joanna stuck with me. I would absolutely recommend her for anyone looking to make a purchase. Her dedication, work ethic, preparedness was all top notch. Thank you!!

Tamara & Brandon – They are AMAZING!

Joanna and her sister are the BEST Realtors in town! Super friendly, real, honest, NEVER any pressure to commit, patient and there for YOUR needs. Give them a shout! The Wilson Sisters – they are AMAZING!

P.O. – You made my home search a memorable, easy and rewarding experience. You’re awesome.

I’m glad to have found you to be my Realtor, Melanie. I have not only found myself a new beautiful home, I have found a friend I would like to keep for a long time! You made my home search a memorable, easy and rewarding experience. Thank you! I really cherish this home search journey and you are a big part of it. You’re awesome!

John H – If you’re a rookie home buyer, you won’t find better.

I was a first time home buyer and the most important elements of a realtor were accessibility and knowledge. Melanie was always available and paid attention to my questions and concerns. She provided solid answers in a timely manner and was a great advocate on my behalf. Melanie made navigating the confusing waters of first time home buying manageable and stress-free. If you’re a rookie home buyer, you won’t find better. Thanks Mel.

Louis A. and Eric D. – Your assistance during the whole process went beyond what was expected!

We were just going through how everything has worked out with the short timeframe that we working with and wanted to take the time to write you this note of Thank You for the job well done. We spent an entire afternoon with you to view a series of properties, put an offer in that night, it was accepted the next day and then we proceeded with moving only a week later!!! It is unheard of but you guys still pulled it off with the upmost professionalism – your assistance during the whole process went beyond what was expected. We will definitely be forwarding your name to other friends, family members and business associates. All the best and with great gratitude, Louis and Eric

Derrick & Whitney – We look forward to working with Joanna again when we buy our next home.

My fiancee and I had the great privilege of working with Joanna when we bought our first home. Her friendly manner and professionalism made the entire process worry-free. Joanna’s dedication to her clients is excellent and we look forward to working with her when we buy our next home!

Sarah & Ben Hamel – Joanna helped us every step of the way.

As first time home-buyers, we had a lot to learn about real estate before we were ready to make a purchase. Joanna helped us along every step of the way, providing a wealth of information, excellent advice, and valuable references. She kept us updated with good listings, patiently guided us through many, many properties, and ultimately led us to something more than simply a nice house in our price-range – but rather a wonderful home that our family can grow into. Thank you Joanna, we couldn’t be happier!

Thea Watson – Melanie was amazing and made the experience effortless.

This was our first time buying a home and I can’t believe how smooth and easy everything was. Melanie was amazing and made the experience effortless and completely enjoyable. Our closing was quite fast and she was so accommodating to our tight schedule. We had an initial meeting with her to get a feel of our first realtor here in the ‘big city’. Right away we felt totally comfortable and impressed with her knowledge of the downtown core. While looking for places she pointed out things that I personally would never have thought of – which was extremely helpful. She knew the buildings, new of others experiences in the buildings and was amazing at helping us choose places that hit our ‘pipe-dream’. I would definitely recommend Melanie to anyone looking to purchase a place downtown Toronto.

Jana Shingler – Melanie made herself available whenever we needed her and that right there makes for a great agent and a great experience.

When buying your first home, there are a great many details to consider, Melanie made sure we didn’t miss any of the little things. She also made herself available whenever we needed her and that right there makes for a great agent and a great experience. I will always recommend her!

Sam Fang & Minjie Wu – Joanna is the most helpful real estate agent we ever met!

Joanna is the most helpful real estate agent we ever met! She helped us to find our ideal home in a couple of weeks. I don’t think that our house hunting would have been so easy and comfortable without her help. Although we only worked together a short time, we felt like she was one of our friends. She talked to us openly and understood our preferences and needs before she made any recommendations. She’s so thoughtful and dedicated to her profession. She thoroughly analyzed about the pros and cons when we had to compromise to get what we really wanted. We knew she wouldn’t stop trying until we got the suitable property. She also has great connections to some other professionals such as mortgage specialists and lawyers, which enable her to provide better real estate solutions for home buyers like us. It was a good experience to have Joanna help us in our home search and we would love for her to help us again in the future.

Janice Perreira – Joanna was always there for me.

I was referred to Joanna by my brother Philip Pieters, who bought his first home through her. When he heard that I was looking to buy my first home, he immediately gave me Joanna’s number (he still keeps her card in his wallet even after 4 years). I was also in touch with two other different realtors, but Joanna provided me with more information than both of them combined. Needless to say, I decided to take her expert and extremely helpful advice. Joanna assured me that she was always there for me. I called her numerous times and she was always willing and able to answer my questions, or returned my calls in a very timely manner. I have no hesitation in referring Joanna to anyone buying or selling a home.

Catherine & Jeremy Lenz – Joanna calmly and skillfully navigated us through a competing offer situation and helped us land the perfect home.

As first-time homebuyers, we were nervous and unsure about the process. Joanna was very patient and understanding and ultimately found us the house of our dreams. She helped us identify exactly what we wanted, then encouraged us to take a look at a house we thought would end up selling out of our price range. Joanna calmly and skillfully navigated us through a competing offer situation and helped us land the perfect home for us. But her expertise didn’t stop there! When it came time to secure the financing, she referred us to a mortgage expert who got us a much lower rate than we were offered by our bank. She also recommended a good lawyer and home inspection company. Joanna is a full-service realtor we would not hesitate to recommend to anyone in search of a home.

Laura M – Melanie made our very first home purchase an enjoyable and exciting experience.

Melanie made our very first home purchase an enjoyable and exciting experience. She let us make our own decisions, was never pushy and gave us great advice. She is friendly, hardworking and was always available to answer our many questions. We couldn’t be happier with our new home and we owe it all to Melanie. We would recommend her to anyone buying or selling their home.

Jocelyn Edun – You made my dream of being a homeowner a reality

Joanna, you know how much I really appreciate all that you did for me within the short period. Your zeal in sending me the links almost all round the clock and your genuine interest in not pushing me to get just anything are commendable. You knew from the onset that I was a very picky person and you made up your mind to work diligently with me. Your patience, positive attitude and commitment definitely make you who you are! I could go on and on commenting on all the qualities you possess. The conclusion of this is ‘thank you’ for your genuineness and professionalism. Despite all the obstacles, you made my dream of being a homeowner a complete reality within a short period of time. I will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone I know that is looking to own their own home. Sincerely, Jocelyn

Julie Harper – Joanna took the time to really listen to what I needed.

My new home search was great. Joanna took the time to really listen to what I needed. Through the stress of trying to find the right house she was very grounding, reminding me of what I was looking for. In the end, Joanna helped me find the perfect home!

JP Anderson – Melanie has been a pleasure to work with.

Melanie has been a pleasure to work with and has made the process of buying my condo a stress-free experience. After working with Melanie once, I would never consider working with anyone else but her again. She is extremely patient, attentive, and understanding. I would recommend Melanie without any reservations to anyone looking for a real estate agent.

Dayna K – Melanie assisted me in finding my perfect condo!

Melanie assisted me in finding my perfect condo! Melanie’s attention to detail and knowledge of the condo market made the process quick and seamless. I am constantly referring her to all my clients/friends and everyone who meets her agrees that she stands in a class all her own. You cannot match her attention to detail, personality, and over all professionalism. All the best Melanie!

Bruce & Lisa Wick – Joanna displayed patience and good judgment

We moved from Calgary to Toronto and started looking for an agent and a house. Our starting area was the entire GTA as far out as Oakville! We tried a couple of agents and ended up with Joanna who helped our search as it morphed from houses to condos. We were uncertain about what and where we wanted and Joanna was patient and helpful. We originally were looking at downtown properties but happily ended up in the midtown area which Joanna thought would be well suited to us. The best attributes Joanna displayed were patience and good judgment in determining the best fit for us. I would certainly use Joanna again and would recommend her to family and friends.

Steve Fessey & Jenna Brown – Melanie made us feel so comfortable.

Melanie made us feel so comfortable. She was able to help us find our perfect house, in the right neighborhood at below list price. Melanie was great to work with, very accommodating, knowledgeable, and took the stress out of buying our first home.

Sarah S & Oliver G – The final transaction was painless

As this is our first home, we really didn’t know much about real estate and how the market worked. We had been with a few other agents at the start but none that compared in the level of expertise, dedication and patience that Melanie continuously provided us. We spent many weeknights and entire weekends touring with Melanie, comparing houses and exploring our many possibilities. In our eyes, very few agents would have given us this kind of personal attention which was greatly needed. The final transaction was painless and we are absolutely pleased with the choice we have made. We have since then successfully referred Melanie’s services to our friends/family and will happily keep on doing so.

Riika & Jason Hall

Melanie, we’d like to thank you for making our home-buying experience fun, efficient and speedy!

Maria S – Melanie was there every step of the way

Buying a home for the first time, especially as a woman, is not only exciting but also overwhelming. Melanie was there every step of the way, answering any questions that I had at any time of the day. One of the many things I liked about working with Melanie is her patience. We went to see quite a few homes together and she never pushed me to buy…she kept saying you will know when we see the right one – and one day we did. Thank you Melanie for making this important milestone in my life a positive experience!

Timur & Laila M – Melanie invested significant time and effort to get to know us and what we valued

When purchasing a new home in this market environment, one must often walk the thin line between determined, confident decision making and rash, uneducated decision making. The level of investment and emotion involved in this type of purchase makes this task very difficult. The agent is there to help the buyer walk that line with confidence and land on the right side. This can only be done through shared values and a trusting relationship. Melanie invested significant time and effort to get to know us and what we valued. She had the courage to point out the flaws in the places we visited regardless of how attached to them we had gotten. She also built relationships with the sellers and obtained information that prepared us well for several multiple bid situations. Without hesitation we would recommend Melanie to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Matt & Catherine B – We couldn’t be happier

We appreciated her helpfulness, availability, professionalism and tact. She removed the stress from our first home-buying process, providing valuable insight and advice but respecting our choices. She helped us find the perfect property for us, at the right price, and her great service continued after the closing date. She cares about what she does, and it shows; we would recommend her to anyone.

Leslie Jackson – Mel’s knowledge of Toronto areas and her keen sense of what I was looking for…

I found Melanie’s role as my real estate agent to be exceptional. From the moment I met Melanie I knew that she not only wanted to help me find a place to live, but rather to help me find a place that I would love to live. Melanie’s knowledge of Toronto’s areas, the numerous condominium buildings, the units available, and her keen sense of what I was looking for made the process of finding an amazing home effortless and enjoyable.
