First Time Home Buyer

The early stages in the process of buying my first new home was a scary thought in itself to not make the wrong choice. However after I met Vanessa my anxiety in the process decreased  drastically, and the more I spoke with vanessa the process became much more enjoyable and exciting. I  was worried i couldnt afford the location or the square footage  I wanted. The process continued and with Vanessa skills and knowledge  we found my first new home. During the bidding process vanessa's  experience and skills in negotiating  really shined through. End result I bought the home I absolutely  love  and in a great location  that works perfectly  for me.I'm so happy that I trusted in Vanessa in the process  and everything  turned out perfect! 

Thanks again,

As first time home buyers, my husband and I wanted to work with an agent who we felt comfortable with as well as someone who was ready to work with us to find our perfect home. After interviewing several agents, without any doubts, we chose Julie. We were so impressed with her professionalism, enthusiasm and motivation and was very knowledgeable about the market and what to expect. She was very patient with us since we had tons of questions about the market, different neighborhoods, schools, etc.  We are thankful for her expertise and willingness to work with us!

What can we say, Diane and her team did a great job during a very uncertain time. We did a fast turn around to get our house on the market and her team did an excellent job staging, advertising, and showing.  We have a toddler and both work full-time, so Diane and her team really stepped up to help and get the job done. It was incredible how even though they staged the home, it still felt like our home (only 100 times better). We had over 100 viewings and sold over asking after only being on the market for a week. We also purchased our new home through Diane, during the beginning of  COVID outbreak, when competition was still high and restrictions were just coming into play, complicating our ability to see prospective homes. It was an adventure, but Diane worked with us through the whole process and we got the home that we wanted. Thanks so much Diane!


Julie Lang from Tobias Homes helped my husband and I sell my condo, and purchase our very first home together in December 2019. We just had a baby and it was a challenging transitional period for our family. It was only after a few months of communication and preparation that we were finally ready to list my condo and look at properties. She sent us relevant listings for months to get a feel for what we were looking for, but never pressured us to move forward until we were ready. When we finally gave Julie the go-ahead, she and the team staged our condo beautifully. We accepted an offer way over asking, and 24 hours later our offer was accepted on the purchase of our first family home! I would like to thank the entire team at Tobias homes for your expertise and guidance through the experience. With special gratitude to Julie Lang for her hard work!

"The best part of working with Diane isn't her amazing personality, professionalism and negotiation skills (which she possesses in spades), but her team approach to the real estate process. In our experience, we weren't just working with one amazing agent, but Diane's entire team. What this meant to us is that we had access to an amazing, dependable, savvy real estate service around the clock. Diane hand picked and personally trained her team and we were truly supported throughout the process. What's more, Diane got us an exceptional price for our home; over and above what we expected, and it all happened quickly and smoothly."

“Vanessa was able to help us find our ideal home in record time! Amazingly she sympathized with our requirements and thoughts and in her first set of proposals we got our stunning new place. She also helped us find the best financing and legal solution, we loved working with her”.

"As first time home buyers, Diane was a great match for us. We felt we were looking for a needle in a haystack and to some extent we were. Diane was very patient and never pressured us into anything. She picked up quickly on the types of properties we were interested in and made accurate/relevant recommendations for us to see and consider."

"Vanessa was in our corner every step of the way. We came to her with ideas and a dream and she made it a reality. Being first time home buyers Vanessa guided us through this whole experience and made it as smooth as possible. We had a budget that seemed impossible in this sellers market. But Vanessa still managed to find us not only a great place, but in an amazing neighbourhood. The idea of moving further out of the city center wasn't an option for us. Vanessa found us a home within an area be both felt was in great proximity to everything we need. We would strongly recommend her to any friends or family looking to buy!"
