"After many decades away, my sister and I returned to Fort Erie to prepare our family home for sale. We asked many long time Fort Erie friends if they’d give us their lists of their top 3 choices of real estate agents. No two lists were the same except for one name that appeared on every one — Ray Rosettani.

We weren’t quite ready to list the house but we contacted Ray to begin discussions. He suggested we meet that afternoon and talk about the work we were planning to do on the house prior to listing — with his knowledge of the local real estate market, he might be able to steer us away from unnecessary projects and instead suggest crucial ones. He was right. His walk through the house was thorough, informative, respectful, and his suggestions saved us time and money. Although he met with us just a few hours after we reached out to him, he brought historical photographs of the house that we had never seen, extensive and timely information about the local real estate market, and the details of a number of comparable listings. He had done substantial homework. We were impressed but, at the time, it was easy to write this off as "agent trying to get a listing." It was after he had the listing that Ray really began to prove why he was on everybody's list of favorite agents in the first place.

I’ll skip to the end and say that our house sold, we’re very happy, the process had all of the ups and downs of a typical listing, and Ray expertly guided us through it from start to finish. None of that was surprising. What set Ray apart, however, was his 3am work, the restless brainstorming which he applied to our listing, and, I suspect, all listings. Even when there wasn’t anything pressing for him to do, he was still researching, still evaluating whether or not the listing continued to be well positioned as the market fluctuated, and still working on alternative ways to get the listing in front of more potential buyers. His use of online marketing platforms was exceptional. He kept us informed and updated throughout. We had a feeling that our 100 year old house would take time to find the right buyer, and Ray found that buyer. Rather than slap a SOLD sign on the house and move on to his next listing, he instead kept arranging showings just in case the buyer wasn’t able to complete the purchase. And when that first offer fell through, Ray already had another one ready as a backup.

In the end, Ray and his great team secured six offers on our house, all while being ever mindful of the fact that it’s not just a house, it’s the home of five decades of our family’s memories. From that first day when he arrived so well prepared, to the day the sale closed, and beyond, his approach extended well past basic professionalism. It’s the difference between somebody who just does their job, and somebody who truly loves it. In our experience, there is no mistaking that Ray Rosettani is the latter, and for that, we are forever grateful." - Kimberly Barker

 

"A few years ago I moved to the Niagara Region and Ray was helping me find a place to live. Unfortunately I ended up going with a new build and Ray was not able to help further but I was very pleased with the experience and kept his name in the back of my mind.

Recently I decided to see if I could upgrade from my current town house and reached out to several neighbourhood realtors, including Ray. While they all came by my place and did a walk through, the thing that stood out for me with Ray was that he knew the neighbourhood. A similar house to mine had sold for a very low price and Ray was aware of the entire situation even though he was not the realtor selling that property. He made it clear to me not to worry and then discussed a range of pricing that he felt I could get for my house. He discussed the pro's and con's of listing at both the higher end and lower end of that range.

In the end I chose to have Ray sell my house. He was right on time for all appointments, explained everything in detail and left me a contract upon me signing it.

Very quickly I had someone interested in the property. His assistant Holly was great communicating details with me and getting my okay for showings. I quickly ended up with an offer that Ray spent quite some time explaining to me, keeping me calm (this was my first time selling) and guiding me in a professional manner.

Ray kept in touch with me throughout the entire process, including on the closing date. Whenever I had a need to communicate with Ray, it was simple and he was quick to get back to me if he wasn't immediately available. Whether it be by text message, email or a phone call, it didn't matter. Ray was always there.

At the end of the day, my house was sold for $25,000 more than the other realtors felt I could get for my house. I recommended Ray to a friend who used him as well and sold his house within a few days for a very good price as well.

I cannot recommend Ray enough. If you want someone who tells the truth, is accurate, knows Fort Erie and is heavily involved in the community and will do everything legal and honest to sell your house, Ray is the guy!" Marcus Morton

 

"I would like to start off by saying, would never even consider using another Realtor other than Ray.  His team works so well together to ensure their clients are getting the best possible house for their family. We were first time home buyers and had millions of questions and Ray sat down with us and answered all of them and really explained everything we needed to know. We really liked how relaxed he was, he did not try to "sell" a house to us. He showed us what we knew would be a solid house that had things he knew we would like in our budget, knowing what monthly amount we could afford and live comfortable.

When we found the right home for us, we loved how he would randomly text or call us throughout the process to make sure we were still comfortable with how things were going and if we needed assistance with anything. When the deal firmed up and it was time to move
we LOVED how he was with his trailer and this service he provided. We saved a lot of money by him allowing us to use this for free. He was very efficient with the trailer, he gave us as much time as we needed to load it. He moved it for us on a weekend and 10 minutes after we told him we were ready which is amazing and within 15 minutes of us telling him we were done he removed it so it was not taking up space in the driveway.

Ray is not only our Realtor now, but a great friend to us. Thank you for everything." Dustin & Valerie Taylor

 

"Ray has been my Realtor since 1999. Selling 2 houses and buying 3 houses with Ray was the best choice we could have made. He and his team are professional, knowledgeable, friendly and always there when I need them." Candy Cochrane

 

"We are so happy with the sale and purchase of our old and new home!! Ray and his team have done a great job for us and continue to provide our family with excellent service. We look forward to dealing with Ray even more in the future." Mark & Annette Crayden

 

"The purchase of the home was not without challenges so having Ray made the obstacles seamless. Post purchase Ray went over and above to ensure things were in place and the comfort of home feeling was reached. Ray's follow up afterwards is something you can not put value to. Ray actually didn't give the feeling of an agent because his attention to details and explanations were those of a family member or close friend. I almost felt bad for the lengths I needed him to go to ensure my own opinions on things were dealt with. Never once did Ray mention the word NO or show lack of interest. An amazing agent and human being all around. My family can never thank you enough! AMAZING....." Gina Murdoch

 

"On behalf of my Family, and myself, I would like to Thank You for all the Effort, and Hard Work , you and your Team have put in to make the sale of our Home possible. The extensive advertising of our House was more than I expected and a great selling factor. As an Ex- Realtor I am fully aware of how frustrating a sale can become. Your advice and guidance was so helpful and appreciated, and it has been a pleasure working with you. Looking forward to dealing with you in the future."  Alf Crimmins


 

"As a first time home buyers, we felt in the dark when were ready to start looking for a home. We recently moved back to the area and had heard how knowledgeable you were as an agent. There were a number of questions we had and your patience with us was amazing. We are incredibly impressed and would highly recommend your services to any buyer. We are more than thrilled with the result and your advice has been invaluable." Jennifer and Robert Sabo

 

"Bottom line, if you want your house sold or you want to buy, Ray Rosettani and his very capable team are the ones you want to have on your side.  Despite being only at the precontemplative stage of relocating to a new town and just testing the waters when we approached him, Ray went above and beyond what we expected.  He provided us with the resources we needed to make the right decision for us without hesitation, and then armed with this information, we quickly decided to list our property and start seriously looking.  Ray warned us to be prepared because we would find ourselves moving quickly, and he was absolutely right!  Due to the excellent strategies utilized to market our property, our house sold within three weeks.  Ray, in combination with his very personable and competent assistant Holly, made concerted efforts to ensure that we were always apprised of the most up-to-date information and listings in our price range.  With his help, we successfully negotiated the purchase of a new property.  We were thrilled!  With Ray guiding us every step of the way, we have now moved to our new house and love it.  Words cannot express enough about Ray and Holly, as well as his proficient team, with their professionalism and knowledge.  We are very grateful to have had this opportunity to have worked with them.  Their attentiveness and constant communication were excellent.  Definitely give them a call ... you won’t be disappointed!!!" Mike and Barb Cole

 

"You really did take the hard work and most importantly the stress out of the home buying experience and we now have our home which we both love. I would have no hesitation in utilising your services should we decide to upgrade in a few years time. It wouldn't be the same without you!"  Kelsey Southerland and Matt Erikson
