Dear Prospective Homeowners:
It is our immense pleasure to recommend Dixie Macdonald as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for the ideal home.
Dixie had an initial meeting with me and took diligent notes regarding our specific needs as well as our budgetary expectations. She is highly talented technologically and made excellent use of the relevant search engines and real estate databases to quickly find us a variety of homes for sale in the best area, focusing on Ajax. She did not waste our time with homes that were not in line with our needs.
A master with the contract negotiations, Dixie came up with a deal that was excellent for us. She strategize way beyond what we had expected. When I became discouraged, daily she would send positive reminders to re-encourage, especially me, that my perfect home awaits. There is nothing that escapes Dixie’s attention when it comes to property for sale in Durham. The Lady is a genius.
We found Dixie to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were her only customers, although we know that was not the case. She returned all phone calls, texts and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. She is also highly personable with an engaging personality. Dixie was honest about some minor changes that we needed to make in our offer presentation to make it more attractive to the seller quickly, and her advice worked like a charm.
We are pleased to recommend Dixie Macdonald to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She is hands down the best in the business in our opinion and if we ever need to move again she will be our first choice in real estate agents. SHE IS THE BEST! THANK YOU FOR ABSOUTELY EVERYTHING DIXIE…..Jae & Bobby!
"Dixie is so fantastic. She was there for us every step of the way. She has so much knowledge, great commuication skills and not to mention her funny personality! " Laura and Sam
"Well prepared with information and strategies to best sell my mother's condo. I have a marketing/consumer behavior background and chose Dixie from a group of agents that a request on strategy for selling sent out to. Dixie was the best prepared and most strategic in illustrating goals and tactics to achieve them in her response, so was chosen as listing agent. No regrets! Dolores Smith, Erin, ON"

Thank you, thank you, thank you. And, not just for finding our ‘dream home’ but somehow managing to get us a 2-week close, devising a negotiation that ensured our bid was presented first and acceptable to the seller, and arranging the home inspection on a public holiday 2-days later!
This was our 4th home purchase and 2nd home sale, and never have we had such a pleasant experience. Your honesty is accelerating, and positive approach to everything made this fun. We loved the fact you researched our absolute criteria (gating & fencing) for every home you showed and thank you so much for urging us not to settle.
We didn’t think you could impress us more then you did when you sold our home. You did. Please post this and feel free to offer us as references for
potential buyers and sellers.
Thank you so much,
Dixie MacDonald is a great agent to have by your side. She is very knowledgeable and skilled. She really knows her stuff and she always did her research! She was wonderful about getting back to me immediately and she was always prompt, friendly and professional. She made me feel like I was the most important person in our transactions. I will certainly be recommending Dixie to all my friends, family and co-workers. Thanks so much Dixie! Rick Alexander
The end of November I received a confirmation on a job relocation that had to happen as soon as possible. One of the major items that this would entail would be the selling of my townhouse which required finding a real estate agent. This is where Dixie came into the picture. I had known of another person that recently used her services but I was concerned as Dixie's office was in Scarborough and my townhouse was in Newmarket, but I quickly discovered the distance was not going to be an issue!
My other concern was the time of year that my property would be going on the market - December, when most people are more concerned with the holidays than they would be in purchasing a home.
As this was my first sale I did not know where to start and this is where Dixie assisted me in not only dealing with the paperwork but also in ensuring that the house was staged properly before she came in and took the pictures for the MLS listings. She scheduled open houses as well as with the agents in the area and my house was on the
market after Christmas and was sold within 9 days. By this happening it made my transition to a new city a lot easier, not having to worry about when my house would sell.
Thank you Dixie for making the whole house selling process easy and for being so kind and pleasant throughout the process!
Thank you Dixie, it was a pleasure to work with you. I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your hard work and good humour while selling my home for 98% of list price. Your ability to generate so much interest in such a short time was amazing. I know an empty home is harder to sell but in light of the activity, viewings and open houses, I was glad that I was not in residence.
I did want to let you know that I am available as a reference but doubt that you will have any difficulty getting or keeping client's.
I appreciate Annie
Thank-you for your: Committment, Professionalism, Caring, Warmth and Honest Goodness! Fondly" Joan
We cannot thank you enough for the wonderful support and services you provided to us in the purchase of our first home! We were about to give up on looking for a home until you came into our lives! Your level of knowledge and experience is unparralled to no other! We found you to be attentive and supportive to all our needs. We never once had any trouble getting a hold of you - more importantly, every time you dealt with us you were prompt, effective, courteous and professional. To add , we found you to have an amazing personality and demeaner! It is with all these traits and your kind patience that you were able to negotiate the purchase of our home - you were absolutely BRILLIANT! We will indeed use you again for the sale of our home and refer you to all our family and friends! Once again Dixie, Thank you, and great job!!

Thank-you so much Dixie for helping us buy the perfect house! You were so much more then an agent. You were an advisor, a sounding board and a friend." Yvonne and Vinnie

We wanted to take a moment to thank you for the effort and professionalism you provided in selling our home. To do so this quickly, 4-days, and in this market at 99% of asking was beyond anything we imagined. Our scheduling and open house restrictions we’re sure, posed challenges. Your consideration of us, our home and for our neighbours was greatly appreciated. You’ve taken something we’ve been dreading and truly made it a wonderful experience.
Now we are excited to be working with you to find our dream home.
We offer our contact information to be available to potential clients that wish to confirm our experience and urge you to use us as an attestation to the quality service fulfillments of Dixie macdonald (Agent), Royal LePage Connect.
Thank you so much,” Sherri
Just wanted to say thank you very much for finding our first house together, it was easier but also harder at the same time. I think you were such a great person to talk to, very knowledgable and caring about our needs and helped us understand how the whole buying process works. Tiffany and I are very glad we met and became such great friends with our house. Anyone who needs a reliable agent should contact you and only you, always being by our side ever step of the way, and guiding us towards our dream of home ownership. Thank you again Dixie, you are the best!! Kyle and Tiffany :)
Dixie is the absolute BEST realtor you could ask for. Really! She goes above and beyond the call of duty and provides staging ideas, gives you a comprehensive view of what's on the market, and makes you feel comfortable at all times. Never before have I worked with an agent who spent so much time making sure I understood everything about the house, the neighbourhood and the deal. She wants her clients to be informed and empowered and she really adds a qaulity of service that is a rare find these days. I will use her for all of my deals going forward. Sarah
We had the opportunity to work with Dixie in February & March 2012. We first met Dixie in 2011 as she was selling another unit in the condo we live in. After speaking to her for just a brief period we found Dixie to be very knowledgeable. She seemed to really stand out from the other agents. We had spoken to and met with a number of agents as deciding whom to buy/sell with was not a decision me made lightly. We had listed the condo for sale the previous year, and wanted a better experience.
Dixie really went above and beyond while working with us, she had a very keen sense for picking up our individual character and was very attentive to our demands. When contemplating things, wondering ‘how to ask/tell our agent’.... Dixie ‘figured us out’ and addressed our concerns herself. Dixie was very easy to work with and very quick to respond in our times of need. She took the time to walk us through neighborhoods, answer questions, explain things in a manner in which inexperienced first-time-home-buyers would understand. Dixie explained the difference between what a house was listed for, and what the value should be.
Thank you Dixie for your patience, great work with selling our condo and helping us to buy our first House. Daniel and Trisha
You are not a person who sells and buys houses, You are a professional Real Estate Agent who works, educates and assist clients to realise their dreams. You make them the centre of the process. It is truely a moment of human connection and not a monotary transaction only. Thanks so much! Cathy
Thanks so much! Cathy
