We were thrilled with how the sale of our sister's, Amy, house went! We knew she was in great hands with Judy and Dan and we will gladly continue to recommend Grindstone Realty to anyone we know who is looking to buy/sell.

We used Grindstone Realty to sell our cottage this summer. Both Dan and Judy were a pleasure to work with. They are very professional, provided excellent support and service, our questions were answered promptly and they always knew what to do when an unexpected issue arose. The sale went very smoothly and we'd like to thank Judy for making the process so easy for us. We would certainly recommend your services to anyone that is interested in selling or buying a home.

Dan and Judy Corriveau, owners of Grindstone Realty, did a spectacular job in the selling of our home. We can't thank them enough for all they have done. They were very responsive to our questions and comments, and showed incredible patience and professionalism. Judy and Dan were absolute pleasures to deal with.ith Judy and Dan, buying our house became a wonderful journey. We were looking for a house for a long time and Judy and Dan didn't rest until they found a perfect house for us. We felt that they were watching out for us every step of the way. They were the first ones to point out anything that wouldn't work for us in a house, and I've never met agents like that before that clearly cared about us making the right decision.
After so many homes,Judy and Dan still never pressed us to make a decision that wasn't in our interest, and they kept supporting us in every decision we made. They provided us with a wealth of advice on just about everything, and as this was our first house we sure needed it!
Judy and Dan are incredibly professional, reliable, and they add that special touch of giving it their all to find you exactly what you are looking for.
When we finally found our home, Judy and Dan took away all the stress related to selling our condo on a very tight deadline. They took care of everything and sold our condo on the first day! In the end of our journey, Judy and Dan got us exactly what we wanted! Judy and Dan made a potentially stressful situation into a wonderful experience and we couldn't be happier with our new home. If we ever would need to do this again, we would choose Judy and Dan in a heartbeat!

When it came to pricing our house it seemed that Dan and Judy really gave it some thought and took into account what was happening in the market, the condition of our house, the upgrades we made, etc. It was like they were pricing their own home! Compared to the other realtors we met with Dan and Judy, by contrast, were smart and on the ball. They priced our house above the other realtors' quotes we had received and yet we ended up selling our home on the first day of showing it.
We felt very comfortable with Judy and Dan. We immediately could see that they were bright, enthusiastic, straightforward and personable. A difficult and stressful time was made easier with Judy and Dan’s patience, support and sensitivity to our needs. As they continue building their new business, we have no doubt that other clients who sign with them will be completely satisfied with the services they provide. We found them to be experienced and smart professionals. We highly recommend them whether it is for selling or buying a home. They make a great team!

I was an out of town buyer and my relationship with Judy and Dan started remotely, with Judy doing the preliminary legwork for me. I felt through our initial phone/email conversations that she really understood my needs and presented me with properties that best suited me. I was impressed when we finally met and started viewing properties, she was able to read my mind, telling me what I thought of them before I provided feedback. So after a brief shopping trip in Ottawa I headed out of town for work and Judy & Dan continued the search. Now condo shopping remotely, I was confident in their understanding of my requirements and finding the ‘right’ property for me. All aspects of the transaction were facilitated and no stone was left unturned. I never felt like a number, or a client....more like a trusted friend, appreciated and understood.
“We recently had the good fortune of working with Judy and Dan of Grindstone Realty in the selling of our home. We were very impressed with their services, from our initial meeting with them to discuss our needs, to the successful sale of our home.
Judy and Dan took the time to explain their business and what they could do for us, and made us feel comfortable. They were always available to answer our questions and offer great advice on staging, during the months leading up to the listing of our home. They also took the time to walk through our home, taking into account the upgrades and what it has to offer, and did the necessary research in order to come up with a fair evaluation.
When it came time to list, they explained the process in detail and answered all of our questions. The listing looked great and very professional! The little amount of time we spent on the market went seamlessly – Judy and Dan took care of everything and we had nothing to worry about. They sold our home within a week and we got the price we wanted – we couldn’t be happier!
Overall, what is normally a very stressful experience was made so much easier because of Judy and Dan. They were a pleasure to work with – honest, straightforward, professional and knowledgeable – we would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking to sell or buy a home!"
