When my wife and I decided it was time to sell our home, we interviewed several realtors. We went with Wayne Schilstra and his Team and it was instantly obvious to us that he was confident that he could sell our home quickly and for top dollar. That is exactly what he did! In just 3 days, we had 15 showings and received 5 offers. Our home sold for $31,100 over the asking price. Wayne guided us every step of the way - he negotiated, he brought in his stager to help us prepare the home, he brought in his professional photographer so when our home went on the market it looked amazing. Thanks Wayne for helping us achieve more than we expected. You are a true professional that does exactly what you say you are going to do. My wife and I have already recommended you to others.
- Sincerely, David McCulloch
Wayne Schilstra was very reliable and we were able to ask him many questions and there was always an answer found if not ready to be provided.

We will definitely be using Wayne Schilstra for all of our realtor needs as we are beyond satisfied with his performance. K&B

We listed our house in Smithville with Wayne Schilstra based on a recommendation from a friend. He and his team were professional, upfront, thorough, and well in tune with the market. He went over and above to market our house to clients well outside the West Lincoln area, knowing the type of clients that would be interested in our house, and because of the higher price range it was in. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Wayne to any of our friends and family.

My experience with The Wayne Schilstra Team absolutely exceeded my expectations! I was undecided about selling my property for a very long time. Even once I made the decision to sell, I wasn't sure if there would be buyers and expected it to be a difficult sale. However, Wayne assured me that my property would sell and he was right. Within two weeks Wayne had two competing offers and I accepted an offer for $10,100 above the asking price. This was more than I expected. What I thought was going to be a difficult process was fast and worry-free. Thanks Wayne!

In early 2015, we decided to sell our home in Smithville and move to Stoney Creek. As we weren't in a rush to sell, we chose to take the time and have different brokers meet with us in our home. Due to familiarity with the market on the region we chose to meet with Wayne first. He was very accommodating to our schedule and when we met he quickly displayed the characteristics of honesty and frankness to my wife and I. We could instantly tell that he would be a good fit for selling our home. Regardless of that fact, we met a few more brokers from the Niagara Region. It was pretty obvious to us that our best choice was Wayne so we moved forward.
Upon signing, Wayne immediately put his plan in motion, reviewing the house and providing feedback through his team members. Based on his team's recommendations, we did a small amount of staging and our home was on the market within a week or so. Wayne provided updates to us on a very regular basis and stayed committed to selling our home.
Our home was sold within a couple of weeks and Wayne was instrumental in assisting us with negotiating our best deal. As it sold a lot earlier than we expected, it was important for us to negotiate a closing date that would accommodate our new home closing. We had a very serious offer, it would have been easy for Wayne to recommend the sell but instead he supported our every need and remained a big part of our team negotiating to our best interests instead of just considering his.
Overall, working with Wayne was a pleasant and very successful endeavor and we sold at 98% list. I would recommend his services in a heartbeat and will most definitely contact Team Schilstra if I were to sell again.
