Thanks for your note! We are all happy, healthy and well settled into our cozy home on Sunset.
We still laugh and joke about some of the places we saw on our "house hunting journey."
We've finished the majority of our upgrades and only have a few items on the wish list.
Many happy Returns."

" I would like to share with you the very excellent experience I had with Judi Caplan as a trusted advisory and real estate agent for my family this past summer. I have known Judi and her husband Marvin for many years personally as clients of NetAccess. More recently I have had an opportunity to get to know Judi as an active member of the BNI corporate Executive Network which meets weekly at the Burlington Golf and Country Club. Judi's participation in this group has given me great respect for her dedication and professionalism as a real estate agent.
Earlier this year my sisters and I faced the difficult decision of having to sell the family home. This had been the family home for 53 years, and was a unique property in Westdale. The home had been a place of many happy times with my parents, and the extended family and it was difficult to let go. By including Judi in the family discussion at an early stage we were guided through the process of preparing the home for sale, putting it on the market, and have the house sold at the right price in less than a week. As it turned out, selling the house was one of the easiest aspects of settling my mom's estate.
During the difficult process of decision making, it was very reassuring to have someone like Judi Caplan take over and look after all aspects of the sale. From our first meeting until the final closing Judi assisted us at every step and managed discussions and hard decisions with a calm professionalism that brought all of the family together and made everyone feel included in the process. From practical advice on staging the home, to putting it on the market and pricing, Judi was extremely patient and professional. She answered all of our questions, was always available for calls and extra meetings on short notice. In the end we really did not have to worry about any aspect of the sale, and felt very good about the result.
When it comes to buying or selling your home, I would have no hesitation in recommending Judi Caplan as the person you should call. Judi has a calm professionalism and wealth of industry experience that makes sure all of your real estate decisions will be the right ones."
Don McNally, President NetAccess Systems Inc.
"Since the spring of 2011 I have had the privilege of getting to know Judi Caplan through our mutual participation in the Burlington Corporate BNI chapter. Over this time period I found her to be professional, reliable, diligent about her responsibilities and quite humorous.
However, recently I also had the pleasure of experiencing her true dedication to her work and her clients when my family decided to purchase a new home in Grimsby.
I expect a real esstate agent to guide me in the process of purchasing a house that is just right for our family. However, I also realize how challenging this task can be when you have a husband and wife with very different ideas of what is a 'right fit'.
Judi surpassed all my expectations of what a good Real Estate Agent should be doing for their clients. When I emailed her (several times) at 10 pm, not only did she respond immediately, she also never hesitated to question the quality of house I was suggesting we should go see because, after she did a bit of research, she would discover something about it that didn't fit with what we told her we were looking for.
When we visited houses Judi was never shy to inspect the house from top to bottom to make sure there were no hidden secrets we should know about. Then she would go back and do her research to find out the history of the house and the area it was located in. This process of research was invaluable during the offer and negotiating process.
Finally, Judi insisted on being present for the offer and negotiating process in order to ensure we stood the best chance of getting what we wanted for what we wanted to pay.
Looking for a house can be a rather stressful process. Judi, quite literally, took away any potential for stress. She was professional, friendly, honest, extremely knowledgeable and resourceful... right down to getting Timbits for my 2 and 3 year old as a means of keeping them occupied.
Not only would I not hesitate to recommend Judi's services to anyone looking to purchase a home, I will actively tell people about Judi and her quality of work.
Many thanks Judi. You saved my sanity.

"Thank you Marvin and Judi, as representatives of Coldwell Banker, for taking so much of your time to introduce and explain to us the many options available for selling our home.
You were both such a joy to work with and you always made us feel comfortable knowing what was happening along the way.
The options you gave us, the knowledge and advice, which you shared with us, was just great and we especially liked it that you always came to our home. With such busy schedules we loved that we never actually had to go to the office except to pick up the final paperwork once our house was sold.
Thanks again for a job well done. We will truly miss you both.
Levente and Joanne Janosi"
"Judi is fantastic to work with. She is professional, and she and her partner Marvin are experts in their field. Knowledgable of the market and issues facing home-buyers and very detail-orientated. Most recently, we worked with Judi in 2009 for the purchase of our home, but we have both sold and purchased a home with The Caplan team and I highly recommend them."
Anne Beattie-Bigelow and Mike Bigelow
Judi has personality, empathy, intelligence and an ability to know what our needs were and how to negoitate for them.

We recently had the good fortune to work with Judi Caplan on both the sale of our property in Hamilton and on the purchase of a new home in Flamborough. We unhesitatingly recommend the services of this thoroughly professional sales representative to anyone contemplating a real estate transaction in today’s fast-paced and sometimes confusing market. We were especially impressed with Judi’s attention to detail. She carefully guided us through all the steps of both a sale and purchase, leaving no stone unturned. Her pleasant and easy-going demeanour kept us informed and enlightened, but at no time did we feel like we were being pressured into a making a hasty decision. To the contrary, Judi demonstrated a limitless amount of patience while we searched for available properties and was always ready to make an appointment for us on short notice. With the vast amount of agents to choose from in the industry today, it is important to pick a veteran with experience and knowledge. Judi is a consummate professional in this regard and unlike many others looking for a deal at any cost, it became immediately apparent to us that she was representing no one but us while negotiating both transactions. We felt that we had employed an agent whose reputation has been built on trust and integrity. We also liked how Judi followed up on a host of details for us after the offers were signed; just another example of how she provides the full range of real estate services that one requires. Buying or selling a house today can be a harrowing and emotional experience; we emerged from our transactions with one hundred percent satisfaction thanks to Judi Caplan’s guidance.
Sincerely, Don and Susan Clarkson
"Dear Judi - Peter and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support and, most especially, your patience in working with us to find a home in Hamilton. At no point during our many visits did we feel under pressure to make a decision. To us that was most important. Important as well, was the fact that you were able to understand our needs and that you seem to look at the properties we visited with the same critical eye as we did. We really enjoyed working with you and appreciated the fact that you were prompt in drawing our attention to the new properties that came on the market. We have now lived in our home for almost six months and we just love it. It's the perfect house for us. Thank you for doing your work with such a high level of commitment and attention to your clients' needs. Please feel free to share our deep appreciation of your services with your potential clients. All the best,
Judi - This is just a brief note to express our heartfelt thanks for all the help that you have given us in our successful search for our new home. We are so pleased with our new house and feel that with your help got the best price possible. Making such a big committment as purchasing a house is not done without some anxiety as you are undoubtably aware, but you made us feel comfortable and guided us through in a knowledgeable, trustworthy and caring manner. The quickness with which the deal was finalized after only our first offer, is a testament to your expertise. Although we have known you for only a brief time, we consider you not only our real estate agent but also our friend. Now that we have settled in to some degree, we look forward to having you over soon. Thank you again for all your help.***

The process moved swiftly. Appropriate suggestions were made by you, Judi, for my benefit but my decisions were my own and I felt no pressure in the transaction. Coldwell Banker has a valuable representative in Judi Caplan. I purchased my first home through Judi and trust you to make future purchases on my behalf.
JUDI IS EXTREMELY PROFESSIONAL AND FRIENDLY. MOST IMPORTANTLY SHE IS SOMEONE I TRUST AND SHE MADE FINDING A HOUSE IN A NEW CITY (FOR ME) A LOTTA FUN!
JUDI WAS THE BEST AGENT I HAVE EVER DEALT WITH AND I WAS VERY PLEASED WITH HER PROFESSIONAL ATTITUDE, HONESTY AND SERVICE.
I feel I was provided with exceptional service and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Judi to anyone. It's nice to see that companies still employ honest, hardworking people who care about customer service. Judi Caplan is definitely an asset to your company. Thanks a million.
