TESTIMONIALS from TAMMY & HEATH’S REAL ESTATE CLIENTS
“…Comprehensive Marketing Plan…”
When we came to the decision it was time to sell our waterfront cottage, we researched our options for realtors. We selected Tammy and Heath because of their obvious knowledge of the market in their area and ability to manage expectations. They were honest about what we should expect in every aspect from number of showings, available purchasers and what the value of our property was. They guided us in what we should do to ensure it showed well and they put together a comprehensive marketing plan. We were impressed by the efficient feedback we received and monthly updates explaining what the responses were from the various media advertising that they underwent. The entire experience was organized, efficient and easy. And, we got exactly what we expected, so absolutely successful. We would recommend Gurr team and certainly use them again.
“…Honest and Helpful Advice…”
Tammy & Heath Gurr are exceptional realtors! We have bought and sold homes in several different areas throughout the years and have always looked for competent, trustworthy realtors with integrity. Tammy & Heath exceeded our expectations. They listened and understood our needs and desires as retirees and offered honest and helpful advice. The extensive advertising throughout a large geographical area and their understanding of the market were beneficial in the sale of our property in the village of Westport. Their friendly, attentive office staff reflects their own attitude towards their clients. We highly recommend them to anyone looking to purchase or sell their property.

“Attention to Detail and Great Communications…”
Appreciate the big effort from all you folks at the office in getting our property onto the market at short notice and sold/closed by the middle of August. The professionalism, attention to detail and great communications from all at the Westport office were instrumental in getting the property sold. Kudos to all the front line staff at the office who were always courteous and maintained open and detailed communications with us during the process. Again, many thanks to all of you.

“…Execution was Flawless…”
Dear Tammy & Heath: Should anyone inquire as to the satisfaction of your recent customers, you can pass along my name. We couldn’t have been more pleased with your company’s professional handling of the sale of our Rideau Lakes property. The execution was flawless from the advertising, to the brochure describing the home, to the aerial photos, to the showing. It is no wonder that the house sold in one day…..and for more than we were asking. GOOD WORK! Best future success to you both.
Sincerely, Jeff Holmquest
“All in all, a Great Experience…”
It was a real pleasure to work with Tammy and Heath and their staff. Everything went so smoothly and efficiently when I listed my cottage with them. Getting the needed paperwork done to list was easy and the listing with photos was on their website in a day! They and their staff were always professional, prompt and helpful with feedback after showings. They had various ways (website, magazines, cottage shows etc) to market the cottage which gave it great exposure. All in all, a great experience and I will certainly recommend them to others.
We have been vacationing in the lake district for several years, and have always kept an eye out for a cottage property that would meet our family’s wishes. When we identified the perfect property for sale this summer, we made an appointment with Tammy and Heath for a visit. From that visit, through the offer process, inspection and the finalization of our purchase, the Gurrs were a tremendous help. Our purchase was handled with great responsibility and terrific communication with the sellers, including the diplomatic handling of a misunderstanding. We highly recommend Tammy and Heath!

“…Loyal and Trusted…”
We have used Tammy and Heath for two sales and a purchase and they both worked relentless in meeting our desires and needs. Always available for consultations and advice, they constantly proved to us that they were exceptional at what they do. We will definitely use them again and due to their determination and tireless efforts, we highly recommend them as loyal and trusted Real Estate Agents.

“…Above and Beyond the Call of Duty…”
What to say about the Gurr team? They go above and beyond the call of duty. They have restored our faith in real estate agents. They bring their expertise and knowledge of lakefront properties to the table at all times. No matter what issue might appear, they always have a plan B… All that with a smile and a friendly handshake. We bought and sold a few properties in the past, but our latest experience with this real estate team was the best. We highly recommend Tammy and Heath to anyone who wishes to buy or sell a lakefront property. It has been a most pleasant experience.
Stephen and Monique
Beyond professional and on to helpful and full of useful information has been my experience with Tammy and Heath. I needed an appraisal of a jointly owned property that I was considering selling on the open market, but ended up selling to another of the owners. Even though it was unlikely that I would sell through them, they did a prompt, complete and thoughtful appraisal.
“…Knowledge of the Market…”
Tammy and Heath Gurr sold our lakefront property this year, completing the entire transaction from listing to final occupancy by purchasers, within six weeks. Throughout the entire process they impressed us with their professionalism, knowledge of the market, effort in showing, marketing and advertising of the property. We’ve bought and sold many properties over the years, and Tammy and Heath were by far the best realtors that we encountered. What set them apart was communication following each showing and their knowledge of the features of our property. Should we have future purchases and sales of property, Tammy and Heath will be the first realtors we contact.

Hi Tammy and Heath, This is just a note to thank you for your invaluable help in finding the perfect waterfront home for us. We don’t know what we would have done without your help as issues came up. You are both professional and knowledgeable about your market and no doubt prevented potential problems before they happened. We are truly indebted to you for your kindness and caring.
Gary and Dianne Toniolo
“…Patience and Helpfulness…”
“Heath and Tammy went above and beyond what we expected from real estate agents when we were purchasing our first home! Their patience and helpfulness was amazing. Their tireless efforts landed us in the perfect home, while at the same time alleviating the stress involved in the process.”
Caleb and Nancy Bell
“…Couldn’t Have Been More Pleased…”
With Tammy and Heath our experience searching for our home was very enjoyable. We were first-time home-buyers and fairly new to Kingston, so everything was new to us about the search and the ensuing process once we found the house we liked. We had lots of questions and we also wanted to take our time and make sure we found the right fit. We really couldn’t have been more pleased with the service Tammy and Heath provided. They are very experienced and knowledgeable in complementary ways: Tammy immediately retrieved all available information on houses we were interested in and helpfully kept track of useful information for us. Heath was great at critically assessing houses with us during showings, flagging and informing us about any potential issues with whatever house we were viewing. Tammy and Heath’s availability was excellent – they booked and guided us through many showings at our request, several times with very little notice from us. We liked that we never felt pressured or rushed to come to a decision over the duration of our search. On the whole Tammy and Heath made us feel completely at ease in what could easily become a stressful endeavour. They gave sound advice whenever we asked for their opinion, and we felt that they were working for our best interests. They strike the perfect balance between professionalism and friendliness. Tammy and Heath helped us find a first home that is perfect for us and even played a part in our move going smoothly. We recommend them as realtors without hesitation. If we ever wish to move in the future we will certainly be calling on their expertise again.

“…Professional Job Well Done.”
To Whom it may Concern I would like to thank Heath and Tammy Gurr for a professional job well done. My mom recently moved into a retirement home and I had the job of selling her house. Having not done anything like this before, I was not sure what to do. Heath and Tammy helped me in ways I never thought possible. They assisted me every step of the way. They handled me, themselves and my mom with top professional attitudes and service. I could not have done this without them. I couldn’t believe how everything went so well and so smoothly. Tammy and Heath, I can’t thank you enough for all your hard work and what you have done to make this work so well. I will have no problem recommending your services to anyone who needs to sell their home or property. Thank You Once Again.
“…Attention to Detail…”
We have known Heath Gurr for many years and he has done most of the renovations in our home – his work is excellent. He would not only do the task at hand, but often was able to give us suggestions on how to accomplish the look we intended. When it came time to buy a rental property, we were pleased to find that Heath was a registered real estate agent. He showed us as many houses as it took for us to find the perfect combination of location and price. We were very pleased with his attention to detail and he even offered his help in fixing up some of the deficiencies of our new property. We highly recommend him, for his honesty and his strong work ethic as well as his excellent workmanship.

“These are the agents for you…”
I first met Heath and Tammy Gurr when I started searching for a cottage with my wife Tandy. Heath met us in Westport and took us out for the day to see a variety of places. When I found the one I wanted, he and Tammy were instrumental in helping me close the deal. We selected an amazing 4 season home with over 1500 ft of shoreline and its own island. We enjoyed the place for many years. When we decided to sell, we put it on the market with Heath and Tammy. They deployed a website for the property, including aerial drone footage and had the property sold in 3 days. If you need to buy or sell a property anywhere in the area they serve, look no further. These are the agents for you.
When we started looking for a lakefront property we knew nothing about the area, we just knew we loved it! When we had questions on properties and lots that appealed to us we got very little response or help from anyone we called, until we called Tammy and Heath. Tammy was extremely helpful, patient and genuinely interested in us and what we were looking for. Once we were ready to purchase our dream place, Heath helped us navigate the area and showed us various places so we could really determine what was best for us. Heath and Tammy were both instrumental in helping us negotiate our closing and understand life on a lake with a septic tank and a dock etc.! They both have been expert advisors, caring, knowledgeable, beyond helpful and above all, there for us. We are very grateful for all of their efforts on our behalf. We highly recommend Tammy and Heath.

“…Unwavering Focus and High Energy Level…”
After 22 years in our home, Heath and Tammy, through their guidance and expertise, gave us the confidence to move to an area we have always admired. With their unwavering focus and high energy level, our home sold in a week! Thank you, Heath and Tammy!

“…They Know Their Market…”
My wife Edith and I have been using Tammy and Heath Gurr’s service for the past 3 years. We sold 2 cottages, 1 piece of vacant land and purchased a house through them at different times during these 3 years. When listing a property, their team comes as prepared as can be. They know their market, they know the neighbourhood, they present to you all the sales and ongoing listings in your area. They study and understand your property. They offer the most professional service anyone could want. Up to and during the listing period, their service exceeds any expectations that I ever had of an agent. Heath came on several occasions to help me perform repairs that were beyond my expertise, and if unable to do them, referred qualified professionals that could get the job done in a timely and efficient manner. Their listing presentation was flawless and pricing was always in accordance with the chosen strategy (either priced to sell at a fair price, or potentially taking more time and maximizing selling price). They listened to what Edith and I had to say offered pointers, gave their honest opinion and let us decide our own course of action. When we purchased earlier this year, they again listened to our needs and specs, they showed us properties that, in each case were relevant to our circumstances, and let us decide our own course of action; without pressure but again giving the right pointers. They were very helpful with paperwork, and worked diligently with our lawyer to ensure a smooth completion. The staff at their office is friendly and attentive; they gave me leeway and help in the office at a time when I really needed both. Heath and Tammy’s marketing skills and dedicated staff ensure the greatest amount of advertising to a diverse clientele over an extensive geographical area. (ie: we met Tammy and Heath on several occasions at the Toronto Spring Cottage Life Show). A long testimonial, but one that is well deserved by a hardworking and highly competent team. Edith and I would very much recommend using the services of the Gurr team for any real estate needs in the Westport/Kingston area.
“…Total Real Estate Package…”
The thought of selling the “Alward cottage” after 51 years on Buck Lake was extremely difficult but thanks to Tammy and Heath Gurr of Royal LePage the whole real estate experience proved to be painless. Their professional advice and guidance with selling and purchasing a home for amateurs like us was priceless. Their likable personalities is just icing on the cake. Our sincere appreciation to Tammy and Heath Gurr, you truly are the “Total Real Estate Package”. Tammy and Heath, thank you so very much for everything you did for us.
Errol and Christine Alward
Our place at 18 Bedford in Westport sold yesterday, in no small part… because of the excellent communication skills of Heath and Tammy who resolved a serious problem created by our former agent. We have bought and sold a dozen fixers in the last twenty years and Heath and Tammy are the best agents we have known. They do everything to sell a property, sparing no expense and put in extraordinary time and effort to promote and communicate with all parties involved. Thanks Heath and Tammy, we will always be grateful for your excellent representation.

“…Personable, Helpful and Professional…”
Tammy and Heath helped us to sell our cottage recently, July 2014. They work so well together, and are the dream real estate team. They are personable,helpful,and professional in every way. We had confidence in them from the beginning of our relationship. They both work very hard to get the desired results. A big thank you!

“…Excel in Advertising…”
We felt very comfortable under the care of the Gurrs who excel in advertising and getting a large flow through of potential buyers. Competent and always willing and available our property was moved faster than expected at a reasonable price. They also suitably arranged our replacement purchase.
