"Michael's services were recommended to me by a co-worker for his thoroughness and professionalism. Both of these were true, however what impressed me most was the level of understanding of the current market and his strategic approach. He laid out a plan with his estimated sale price and also what he wanted to achieve. He did not wait to see what would happen. He worked diligently to achieve the best price possible for the house. I can't say enough about his approach and work effort. Thank you, Michael!"
"Recently we had the pleasure of having Michael and Linda Vadala from Team Vadala of Royal Lepage Royal City Realty list our house. We could not have been happier with the process, the effort and the results. Michael’s enthusiasm, professionalism and zeal for detail meant that we were always kept informed of the process and progress which ultimately resulted in the sale of our home for more than we had expected. We would highly encourage anyone else looking for real estate assistance to use Team Vadala. You will not be disappointed – they will get you the results you are looking for."
"We met Michael through a family member who highly recommended him to us for his success with the realty industry and family driven values. We clicked right away with his personality and sense of humor. He showed his dedication to us by making himself available 24/7, and answered our many questions in a timely manner. Michael was able to provide us with knowledge about location, comparable properties, and his opinion on whether a property was genuinely a good fit for us or not. For special circumstances if he was unavailable, his team members such as Linda, and Tracey would jump in to ensure we saw a property we were interested in right away.They were both friendly, professional and well-informed when showing us properties too. Michael and his team worked miracles, to find us a home in this insane Guelph market which met all of our needs seamlessly. We are home-owners now! We are so happy and cannot thank the Vadala team enough! If you are looking for a home during this time where it feels like buying a home is completely impossible - go with the Vadala Team and they will make it happen."
"I am writing this testimonial to thank Michael in helping with the sale of my home. After careful consideration (4 days of researching agents and weighing in on whether this was the proper time to sell my home) I chose Michael and acted quickly to get my home up for sale. He responded to my call and within 2 days my home was on the market. Within market value he listed it and I had many offers to decide upon within 1 weeks time just as he said I would. I can not thank Michael enough for his prompt and professional advice. This was my first sale and my home sold for more than the asking price. Going forward in my life I will be forever thankful to he and his team at Royal Lepage Realty.
I am a hairdresser here in Guelph and know how important it is to advertise through word of mouth. I have given Michael's name to many clients and am confident he will be there for them as he was for me."
"We would like to say a big ”Thank You” to Michael Vadala once again. Michael has done an amazing job for us with three properties. This last one, during Covid-19 he helped us out so much with everything and made it so much less stressful for Sam and I. But that’s just the kind of guy Michael Vadala is! Committed, Thoughtful, Professional, Knowledgeable, Great sense of Humour, and is like Family to us! Thank you so much Michael, you are the best!!"
"We have sold two properties with Michael in the last year. Both experiences were very positive. During the listing periods, he kept us well informed on their activity and was successful in generating multiple offers on both properties. Each property sold in the upper range of their market value for their location and condition. On the purchase of our new home, he negotiated hard on our behalf to obtain the right price and closing terms. So yes, we were very pleased with the process and outcome of each transaction."
"I was referred to Michael Vadala by a friend of mine who has used Linda and Michael Vadala for years. I am so glad I used them! Michael was easy going and really worked hard to understand what we were looking for and what we wanted in a home, even picked up on things that we didn’t even know about ourselves. Micheal was open minded and took time to get to know us. When Micheal was not available, Linda stepped in. She is very kind and they both are very knowledgeable. I was glad to have agents who knew the Guelph market very well and were able to guide us based on their knowledge of the market. Micheal made us feel comfortable and I felt that he really cared about us and our happiness with our new home. Micheal was easy to talk to and answered all of my questions clearly and promptly. Micheal was working hard behind the scenes on all aspect of the selling and buying houses and he went above and beyond to coordinate everything perfectly for us.
When we hit some snags on the day we took possession of our new house and Micheal jumped into action to fix and make plans to get us into our home on time. Without him, we would have never navigated everything on our own. Micheal kept me calm!
We made the right choice using Michael Vadala and I know I will be referring my friends and family to them in the future!"
"Linda and Michael were quick to reply and follow up on emails/texts. They have lots of experience and great at providing advice with regards to making offer. Providing guidance. Made phone calls on my behalf to get more information. Strong advocate to ensure home is left in suitable shape. Friendly. Knowledgeable worked hard for me to make things happened and get a deal done."
"You supported us through the offer process, and gave wise advice when asked for. You listened to us. And were patient. You brought a long history of experience to the table which helped us incredibly. When the rubber hits the road, Linda will stand by you and support you. Linda is sincere, and honest, and you can trust her to sell your house."
"I hope you realize just how much I appreciate all you've done for me, both with the sale of my old house and the purchase of my new one. You were encouraging about what needed to be done to help sell my previous house and just seemed to know intuitively when to remain firm and when to be prepared to re-think my position. Being on my own for the first time, I suspect that I needed more reassurance about the whole process than I might have otherwise and you were always there for me. When it was time to purchase a new house, you listened to my thoughts about location and requirements and then suggested a house I would likely not have considered but which you knew would suit admirably."
"Hello Michael, just wanted to take a moment to express to you my thanks relative to you finding me a home and working with me to ensure all my expectations were met and at times even exceeded!!! You worked with me through a very difficult time in my life and made the experience absolutely fantastic and somewhat seamless. You thought of things on my behalf that I never thought of and managed and executed all actions in a professional manner, that I have not seen matched. This was not the first home purchased by me and I have dealt with many in your field. If ever or when I decide to purchase another home the transaction without a doubt will be quarterbacked by you and your team. I have a somewhat high standard set when it comes to business and client experiences but it is without the slightest hesitation that I would recommend you to anyone in need of your services. Michael, thank you once again and I now think of you as a friend, if in turn I can be of any help to you it would be my honour, just ask!"
"This is the second time we have purchased a home under the expertise of Michael Vadala, and we would do it again! Michael takes client service and professionalism to a whole new level. He helped us clarify what we wanted in our homes, and encouraged us to hold onto our key "wants" even as searches became frustrating. Michael always managed to be available to us, and if he couldn't, he quickly found a member of his team to step in. At all stages in the process, Mike demonstrated his vast knowledge time and time again, which helped to put us at ease. Michael firmly stays in his clients' corners, always keeping their best interests in mind and really fighting for the best outcome possible. But beyond all of these skills and abilities, Michael is such a pleasure to work with and makes the whole process of buying a house incredibly enjoyable. Thank you so much, Mike!"
"Thank you so much Michael for helping us sell our home. Your compassion and consideration during this time was appreciated more than I can tell you. It has been quite a while since we’ve moved and I couldn’t believe your attention to detail. The help with preparing and staging our home was such a pleasant surprise and made all the difference. Your entire team was professional and took a great deal of pride in their work. It is very clear that you understand that helping your clients sell their home, is also helping them let go part of their history, something that is very personal, precious and emotional. Thank you again for everything."
"Michael Vadala has served as my realtor for two transactions now and went way above and beyond the call of duty when working on my behalf. No matter what I asked of him, he went out of his way to make sure I had all the information or help that I needed. He is personable and knowledgable. Michael always dealt with myself and others with the upmost respect and integrity. It was a pleasure working with Michael whose personal ability and attention to detail put me at ease. He was always available to respond to questions, whether in person, via mobile phone or email. Michael is a true professional and I highly recommend him for any real estate consideration."
"Michael is knowledgeable, friendly, and willing to help. He does an excellent job of interpreting your needs and suggestions when showing houses. When putting in offers, Michael will have your back. He does every single thing with his clients' best interests in mind and works to get the best property and the best deal for you. We can't recommend his excellent service enough and we are so happy in our new home!"
"My wife and I met Michael at an open house that we had dropped into because we were curious about the house. We felt it was initially over priced, but Michael assured us that the market was very strong and it was priced correctly. Michael was not wrong as the home sold for significantly more than the asking price. My wife stated that it wasn’t really what she wanted anyway and Michael asked her to describe her dream home. When we both described what we wanted, Michael said “I know just the property that you will love”. Boy was he right! It was amazing. Michael helped us make an offer he felt was competitive and presented our offer to the seller. They liked Michael’s presentation, but we were ultimately outbid by an out of town buyer. We were devastated.
Michael didn’t give up and kept looking for a home that we would love. He eventually showed us one that checked off all of our “wants”. At first we were luke warm to the house but the more we looked at it - we realized it was perfect for our wants and needs. Not only did we end up buying it - but Michael helped us get a great deal in a hot market.
Then we were in a situation where we had to sell our current home after buying the other home unconditionally. Michael helped us prepare for the sale with suggestions on improvements and the staging of the home. We sold it quickly and for a great price. The process was flawless. Michael truly knows the local market and is a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Guelph market."
"As a family who has bought multiple houses with Michael we can say with confidence that there will be no one else we will use as a realtor than him.
Michael guided us through buying our first home and steered us around many of the pitt falls that come with that experience. If we had any questions, silly or not, Michael answered them professionally and promptly.
As we out grew our first home Michael found the perfect fit for our next house as our family expanded. The patience and willingness to go the extra mile was extremely evident in this process as we looked at dozens of houses in multiple cities and townships.
Furthermore, Michael was able to provide us with what I feel was the best home inspector in the business. This service not only saved us from buying a potential financial devastating disaster, but helped us get to know our new home and what we needed to do to keep it running in great working condition.
Needless to say to anyone who is looking for a realtor: Michael Vadala has gone above and beyond the call of duty for our family and you would be in great hands if you had him as your realtor."
Thank you, Michael. Sincerely,
"We have recently purchased a house from Michael Vadala and would recommend him as a realtor.
We have dealt with other realtors in the past years, but our experience with Michael Vadala was by far one of the best. He was very knowledgeable and obliging to our requests for multiple, repetitive viewings. In our search, he was always prompt to set up our inspections and patient in listening to our comments and comparisons. With Michael’s help we were able to find the perfect home."
"We recently bought our first home and as first time home buyers we had lots of questions.
Michael helped us immensely by answering all of our questions and giving us advice we never even thought to ask.
He was laid back and let us go through our process and stepped in when we had a question. He had great patience as we looked at house after house until we found the perfect one for us. When it was time to make an offer he helped and advised us on how the process should go. Michael was a great realtor and we will definitely be contacting him for our future home buying/selling needs."
"My husband and I weren't the usual clients that Linda and Michael Vadala worked with I'm sure. You see, we wanted to purchase a home that wasn't for sale! However because of Linda's knowledge of the area, the community and the family that owned the home she worked to make our dream into a reality.
At first, We were a little apprehensive about Linda representing the seller and ourselves however she proved to be very fair to both parties throughout the entire transaction. Whenever we asked questions or had concerns about the property Linda and Michael would contact the sellers, the builder or the vendor that did the work to get an answer for us. They always made us comfortable that we had made the right choice in having the Vadala's represent us in purchasing our new home.
Thank you to you both, We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to our family or friends."
"Now and again you will find someone about who it's difficult to write about without sounding like overcome hyperbole; the simple truth makes them sound just too good to be true. Meet Linda Vadala. Meet her if you can stop her long enough to make contact, that is. Whenever we see a 5'6" brunette blur passing by, we assume that Linda must be in the office. Since starting in 1987, she has performed beyond our most optimistic expectations, consistently placing within our Top Ten Club for Royal City Realty salespeople across Ontario. In 1991, her peers also named Linda "Woman of the Year," our most prestigious award, in recognition of her unfailingly high ethical and professional standards. And on service surveys, clients have consistently awarded her a 98% overall satisfaction rating... proving once again that no one's perfect. Not even Linda. She's merely exceptional."
"Woman of the Year of 1991, our most prestigious award is presented to this year's recipient, Linda Vadala of Guelph's Waterloo Avenue office. Hopefully, the qualifications for winning the Man or Woman of the year trophy are well understood by now. This, just one of the many nominations submitted for Linda, and it pretty much says it all...
"She is extremely competent, courteous, helpful to other salespeople, very professional, a team player and a leader. She is also very principled. She goes beyond what is legal, ethical practice according to our Standards of Business Practice and she does the right thing in difficult situations. Simply put, Linda exemplifies what Royal City Realty is all about. We couldn't have said it better ourselves."
"Two weeks -- that’s all it took! Having Michael as my realtor was like having a best friend in the business! As I was a first time home buyer, he was there every step of the way to answer my questions. I completely trusted his expert advice. He went above and beyond in all areas from the first meeting right through to the closing. He was able to negotiate with the sellers and got a great price for me. He always had my best interests at heart every step of way, that’s what makes him the best! If you need a fantastic realtor, I highly recommend Michael Vadala."
"We have worked with Linda and Michael, both buying and selling, 3 times over the past years and cannot say enough about their dedication, attentiveness, warmth and professionalism. It was a real pleasure working with Linda, Michael and their team again.
We would highly recommend Team Vadala to look after your needs, selling or buying your next home."
"When selling our house, Mike Vadala demonstrated great leadership skills by meeting with us, doing an appraisal, taking pictures/video and getting the house listed all within three days. His solid work ethic resulted in the sale of our house within one week and above asking price. Mike has sincere empathy to listen to your needs, without pressure and complete honesty in regards to the entire selling and buying process. His excellent communication skills made it very clear that he knows how to connect with the other agents and is always available to provide great customer service at every stage. We highly recommend Mike Vadala as he surpassed our expectations, has passion for his work and took care of our family."
"Through both the buying and selling processes, Linda and Michael were professional, compassionate and provided outstanding customer service. They took the time that was needed to help us prepare our house to sell – including painting, staging and appropriately pricing. Through the offer process with the sale of our house, they were fair and honest, and truly fought for our best interest.
When it came time to buy a house, they listened to exactly what we wanted and needed, and provided us with many different properties to view and choose from. Michael and Linda provided great insight in to each home we looked at, and drew on their wealth of knowledge and experience to help us evaluate each home for our specific needs. As with the sale, Michael and Linda again negotiated the purchase with honesty, integrity and a true desire to get the best possible outcome for us.
I cannot say enough about how wonderful Michael and Linda are to work with. We entrusted one of our greatest investments with them and they delivered over and above our expectations, with professionalism, kindness and a genuine desire to deliver on our needs."
