Shawn Gannaw | Wednesday, October 26, 2011
With sincere thanks to Shawn Gannaw for finding us ``the home of our dreams``.  The months of house hunting came to an end with Shawn discovering the home we now own.  It was a last minute find and the first home on our list for that Sunday Tour.  After a few set-backs we finally arrived at the final stage of ownership.  Shawn never gave up once on us and stood by our side all the way.  His encouragment and kind words always put a smile on our face.  The most impressive attribute was how Shawn really listened to our concerns and our needs.  He was always prepared and diligent about what and how to show us the properties we were looking for.  So, needless to say, we extremely recommend Shawn Gannaw anytime you are in the market to buy a new home.  We ``thank you`` Shawn and if, in the future, we are in need of real estate services again, you can be sure we will be calling on you.  Always with a smile on your face - You are the Best!

Sincerely --  Jtm Pk

To Shawn Gannaw

As people who have had the pleasure of working with Shawn Gannaw as a Seller of our house, we would like to take this opportunity to assure you that you are in good hands. He is a friendly, open kind and considerate man, who we recommend 100%.

He was very helpful and full of advise in listing our house and gets the best value. Not only did he handle everything efficiently and professionally, he really listened to what we needed and helped us get exactly what we wanted.

The effort, energy and commitment he provided went beyond our expectations. There is no doubt that his diligent efforts were responsible for obtaining an attractive offer in less than 2 days after the listing was posted.

Needless to say, we were fortunate to meet him. It was a pleasure to deal with you.

Shawn; thank you again for everything!

Shawn: THANK YOU for all your help during this process. I know Mom was fretting over the house the whole time, but you made her feel comfortable, whenever she was talking to you. She spoke very highly of you!. You seemed to mesh very well with her. I will not hesitate to pass on your name to anybody looking for an agent in the future. Thanks again

Testimonial for Shawn Gannaw

We were introduced to Shawn Gannaw by friends who attended an open house that he was hosting. They were aware that we were new to Barrie, were looking for a condominium to purchase and believed that he would be a good match for us in our search.

Our friends did a mutual introduction via email, as we were travelling through the southern United States. We exchanged initial emails and Shawn was able to get an idea of what we were looking for. We were not in a rush and expressed an interest in a property that might require some work. So he found several condominiums that met our requirements in size and price and he made appointments for us to view them and to spend an afternoon looking at the best alternatives that Barrie had to offer.

He had listened to our interest in a property that might require some extra work, and as luck would have it, he had heard of such a property from a co-realtor. The listing had just gone off the Market … it was a power of sale and had been on the market for several months, currently owned by the bank that held the mortgage.

Shawn had taken the time to go into the property, draw up a floor plan and take several photos. He sent all this info over the internet to us prior to our arrival in Barrie. We sat in our hotel room and perused the photos and the floor plan and decided that this was definitely an option in which we were interested. Once we viewed the property, we were certain this was the option we were going to pursue.

And so began about 5 weeks of negotiation. We submitted an offer to the bank, which was returned immediately. We submitted a second offer, which was ignored by the bank. Then we learned the property had been “sold” to CMHC. We were then asked to submit a third offer to the bank, which was promptly returned. CMHC completed their own appraisal, and then relisted the property as an MLS listing. We submitted a fourth offer to the new listing agent, and then accepted the counter offer from CMHC.

Through all of this, Shawn answered all of our queries, provided lots of historical information on the property and similar properties in Barrie that we requested, kept in close contact with us via email and phone, kept us updated with any new developments, met us at any hour of the day or night as the process dragged on. He even kept a photo of our “new home” on his cell phone as inspiration, and offered constant positive support.

We would be pleased to recommend Shawn to anyone looking for a realtor that is professional, personable, listens to his client and goes out of his way in trying to bring a successful resolution to their search for the perfect housing match.

We are now in our new home, and love it more every day. Thank you Shawn!

I was very happy to receive the following thank you letter from a couple and I am Proud to share it with you!

May 25th

Dear Shawn:

Thank you, thank you, thank you. You listened to our needs and desires. You

provided great advice. You brought in a Home Stager and served cookies at our

open house. You gave us the ability to brag to our friends that our house sold in

6 days for 98.4% of our listing price. While others in the neighbourhood sat

or came off market ours moved quickly and that was our main goal.

I wanted to write to thank you for the above. Your guidance and professional

advice certainly helped make a major life decision a very simple and nearly

enjoyable process. This is the 3rd home we have sold over the years and this was

by far the most positive experience from our perspective as sellers.

your assistance is truly appreciated and I will continue to recommend you to our

friends and neighbours.

A Testimonial for Shawn Gannaw:

On the day that my wife and I decided to put our Condo on the market, we really didn't know which Real Estate company to list with. However, I had heard good things about Prudential LeClair Realty, so I decided to call them.

It was our "good fortune" - we were to realize from that moment until the day our Condo was Sold - that the agent who was "on duty" was Shawn Gannaw.

From the first meeting in our home, Shawn assuring us that if we went with him, he would "work for us". And "work for us" he did! From the day we agreed to go with him, until the day our home sold - just 35 days later!

Shawn applied all his multiple selling skills to the sale of our home. He constantly impressed us with his graciousness; knowledge; wisdom; patience; work ethic; availability; encouragement; listening skills; attention to details; and Keeping in Touch.

The phone call that day to Prudential LeClair Realty was surely "our good fortune".
