Shelagh’s expertise professionalism human kindness, authenticity, active listening, active communication with both my partner and I, keeping us up to date with every step with the process of buying our dream home. Is what our family needed and wanted Shelagh has given us exactly and more what we were looking for. Thank you Shelagh for making our experience of buying a home so dam easy! We are forever grateful for all you have done for us:)
We would like to say a few words about Shelagh MacDonald, our restate agent. This was our first time selling and buying, so we were very unsure of all the ins and outs. Shelagh was very prepared from the first time she came over to meet us. She had a professional photographer come in and a stager. Well, our house sold in 4 days at asking price. We then focused on buying our dream home out in the country with some property for our 3 German Shepherds to run free. We found our home in Ashton and again with Shelagh’s knowledge she set up all the inspections and sealed the deal. We couldn’t have done it without Shelagh, she was with us 100%. We are now living the life in our new home. Thanks

Thanks again, Shelagh, for all your help through all of this – you were awesome and made everything so much less stressful!
Hi Shelagh, I just wanted to share – I LOVE MY HOME!!! I spent the day on the deck, reading, listening to birds, watching the dogs patrol the grounds, walking about to explore the seasonal changes. Inside, I was singing, dancing, joyous. I have had many residences, but none came even close to giving me the daily joy, contentedness, that this place brings me. Thank you. Saying it out loud sounds like bragging, but I hope you appreciate my joy, and my gratitude for your help in finding home. I never thought I could be so happy with a home.
I have known Shelagh MacDonald for over 10 years. I have always known her to be an honest person and an excellent listener. When I told her I needed to sell my home and purchase another one, she took an inventory of my wishes, wants, preferences and finances and immediately went searching for my perfect home. She found 3 homes that were almost perfect except for the cost. She found my dream home with the fourth home she showed me. I bought this home and I just love living here. While searching endllessly for my perfect match (she did so much searching behind the scenes), she was marketing my former home on the real estate market. My former home was the 1st to sell on my street, and she brought me only a serious offer. I would recommend anyone looking for a great agent to consider Shelagh… but be prepared, she will amaze you with her efforts to find the right home for you.
My partner and I didn’t have the best experience with nor trust in realtors in the past! However, Shelagh was a very positive and welcomed contrast! From the start she was open, authentic, organized, kind and took great pride and happiness in helping us close on our dream property. We couldn’t be happier. Shelagh was very thoughtful on a human to human level through the process and always took time to stop by and check in! She even came to visit once we got settled. Further she’s a dog lover and knows all the ins and outs of dog suitable properties and locations. If our dogs love her, she’s definitely got the thumbs/ paws up!
We used Shelagh to help us find a new house, and it was a great experience. She was very patient with us, showing us dozens of houses before we found the perfect one for us. She never pressured us to make an offer on any of the houses. When it came time to buy our perfect house her knowledge of fair prices for the area and negotiating skills were indispensable. We were thinking of buying a house without an agent, but we’re glad we hired Shelagh and we would recommend her.

I got Shelagh’s card at the PetExpo some number of years ago and, when I finally decided it was time to take house-hunting seriously, I asked for her help. I have a dog and two cats and had some unusual requirements because of them, which Shelagh was very understanding about. She was also extraordinarily patient as I considered new neighbourhoods and new types of houses, and encouraging about seeing a house’s potential even if it was not immediately apparent. I moved into my new house last month, and the zoo and I could not be happier. Thanks, Shelagh!
Buying my first home was very stressful and raised a million questions. Shelagh guided me the whole step of the way. We were able to discuss wants and not wants. Of course being a first time home buyer, my list changed at every corner! She kept me grounded and focused and best of all, answered a million and a half questions and put my mind at ease. I never felt alone during this process and I have her to thank! Thank you Shelagh for your time, your good humor, your smile and the wonderful home I now have!
I met Shelagh MacDonald at the 2012 Pet Expo. She was a vendor there and I knew right away she was a dog lover. I asked her to find a very specific property for my business and family. Working with Shelagh as our realtor was an awesome experience. She took many many hours to make sure we found the perfect house and property. It has been 7 months since we have moved into our home. We couldn’t be happier. I would recommend Shelagh for any one looking for a dedicated realtor that will find your perfect home.
When we met Shelagh MacDonald on her first visit to our house we were impressed with her compassion, understanding and kindness because we were selling our home of 43 years. She brought in a stager and a photographer who helped set up the house to show in the best way possible. As a result, our house sold very quickly and we appreciated her efforts in making this easier for us during this very stressful time.
Our journey to find a new home took us 5 hours away from our previous community so it was very important to find a realtor who really understood what we were looking for and who could help us find the right community to settle in. We were very fortunate to have Shelagh assist us along this journey. She quickly ‘got us’ and faithfully forwarded listings she felt were in line with our wants, needs and requirements but that also fit our personality. Visiting multiple properties in a day was tiring but she was patient with us when we turned a property down. And she rallied for us when we found the one that was just right. Thank you so much for helping us to find our new home! Your dedication, determination, professionalism and patient approach was most appreciated.
