Client Success Stories

Steve and Kathleen

Dealing with George and his team made selling our home enjoyable.
We found George to be an easy going person and awesome to deal with. We were never under any pressure to accept an offer unless everything was to our liking; he represented our best interest and not just as another house sale. Very honest and professional.
We would definitely recommend Your Grand Team again and have recommended them to our friends. Thank you for making this experience easy and painless

Patty and I would like to thank George and the rest of the Grand Team for your expertise in selling our home in Elora. Their deep knowledge of the Fergus/Elora market was evident. In addition to working hard to get the deal done, we appreciated the value add including a staging consultation, checking the house in our absence and a snow plowing just before closing. In a challenging real estate market towards the end of 2018, Your Grand Team came through and we had a deal in less than a month. We would not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone who needs a trusted real estate partner.

George … we chose to interview you, along with another realtor, because of a friend connection but also because we liked what we saw with regards to your social media presence. We ultimately chose you because of the connection we made and the message you gave us … you were forthright in telling us the good and bad about selling in our location but you also reminded us that there were 4 parties at the table when selling/buying a home … the sellers, the buyers and the sellers and buyers agents. This gave us confidence that you, as our representative would work with all parties to come up with the best possible deal for all involved.


We truly enjoyed working with George and his team. We felt totally in charge and never pressured. They made great suggestions and left it up to us to decide when, what and how to proceed. Staging went well. Very simple, practical and effective ideas. The pace was hectic from start to finish but we did not feel rushed.  It all happened very quickly and the results were more than we ever expected. Wow.  George has a certain laid back mannerism which works well. It reassures people and sets up a very stable environment in which to proceed.

I would definitely recommend George and his team to anyone interested in buying or selling a home.

George does a wonderful job of leading you through the maze of selling and sticks with you through the buying of a place as well. We would highly recommend George and will enlist his help again. Thanks George.

We wanted a new life adventure: owning and operating a bed and breakfast. We hunted as far west as Leamington and as far east as Prince Edward County, meeting and dealing with quite a few realtors. We also looked closer to home and count ourselves very lucky that the first property we considered in Elora was one of George Mochrie’s listings. While this first house was not for us, George was genuinely interested in our quest and sat down with us for a thorough discussion of our needs and wants. After this, he was quick to get in touch with us whenever a possible property came on the market, and worked around our schedule to meet with us. Most importantly, as our bed and breakfast dreams required many properties to undergo renovations and transformations, George displayed a patience that showed no end while we measured, planned and discussed the possibilities, even offering suggestions and helping to measure. Some showings lasted a good hour or longer but George never let on that we were taking too much of his time!
In the end, after only 2 months, George let us know of a property that had been a guest house and had almost everything we needed and wanted, except a higher price then we could afford. The day of the showing we sat down and, guided by his astute advice and experience, began negotiations. In the end, we managed to successfully negotiate a reasonable final price and the Flying Leap Bed and Breakfast soon opened for business !
After-sales service was unexpected and beyond belief: a pre-booked and pre-paid vacation just when we acquired the house would have had to be cancelled if it wasn’t for George.
We would not hesitate in any way to recommend George, and do so on a regular basis to prospective home owners who visit our bed and breakfast.
Thank you, George!

It’s rare that you get excellent service, but even rarer when that service is superb, yet this is what George Mochrie and his team provided us in finding our home.
It began when upon George’s suggestion, we met over a coffee to discuss our desired type of home, budget and location. In this meeting George listened attentively, providing valuable comments on the market, where it was and what we could expect given that it was December. He assured us that even though it was not the peak time of the season, that the right home would one day come our way.
George was relentless in tracking down every possible lead. I recall more than once that George ensured we were first in line to see homes just listed.
While in each home, George listened to our feedback and offered constructive and valued information. It was clear that George did his best to prepare in advance of going into each home as such he was able to provide us with a clear and concise run-down of each homes attributes and how they aligned to our desirable features.
In each home, we felt we were being soundly represented by a dedicated professional who sincerely cared about getting us into that right home.
Even when George was on Vacation, he ensured we had solid representation through the team. George’s passion and customer dedication was never so noticeable as when he was sending follow up emails from the Airport prior to leaving for vacation and the quick check point email when he made it to his vacation destination. You have no idea how special we felt that George would take time to send us a quick note to make sure we felt well represented while he was on vacation. A very nice touch indeed!
When we finally settled on our home, George put his best negotiation skills front and centered, representing our interests better than we could have ever expected.
In every step of the process, George provided us with direct, and timely communications. He helped to educate us on the market and home buying process which gave us a strong sense of empowerment and made us feel genuinely comforted that we were all on the same team.
Once George had successfully negotiated the accepted offer he immediately went to work on the next phase which was to sell our existing home. He wasted little time in doing his homework where he researched the market, and listed our home $20K higher than we thought it was worth, and he hadn’t put the sign on the lawn longer than a few hours when we received an offer to purchase that was more than reasonable in our minds. Again George executed the role of our Agent with impeccable class and grace, again he made us feel in control, and very much in the know of all the intricate negotiations and post sale process.
If you are looking for a solid, reputable class act, we highly recommend George Mochrie and his team.

Zain & Patty

This is the site where it all began for us – see picture; our love affair with Elora.

It took a lot for us to get here, but we are so thrilled and still can’t believe that we can finally call it “our town “!
We are literally living our dream, in our dream home! And of course, none of it would have been possible without you.
We can’t thank you enough for your tireless effort to help us get this amazing property which has changed our lives for the best !
Looking forward to many years and great times as friends.

Phil and Cony

Thank you so much for the quick and profitable sale of our home!
From the beginning you were professional, calm and understanding of our anxieties – working with us to set a realistic list price for our property.
Your promise to deliver a full advertising program and work with other agents to achieve maximum exposure was pivotal to success.
The fact that you had people bidding on the house is a testament to your market expertise and ability – not only to sell but to negotiate a good deal for your client.
George, we certainly recommend you to any potential clients as the agent to sell their property!
