Testimonials

Below are some of our Client Testimonials:

Dear Keisha, Thank you for taking such good care of us. Thanks for your always upbeat messages and talks. Buying a house can be a somewhat emotional experience. We feel that you had our best interest in mind. All the best

-Marita & Nash, Goodwood Cres.


"We had already sold two homes in Toronto in the past and both were not good experiences. When the time came to sell our home again, we had so much negative experience with real estate agents. We believed they were an unavoidable evil.
But when we hired Ora and the Mulholland & Ross Team, we found a real estate agent that was highly professional and at the same time honest and completely unselfish. She actually cared about our situation and patiently advised us of our options. After many attempts with another Realtor, The Mulholland Ross sold our home with multiple offers. We are sorry we did not meet Ora earlier and did not hired her and the Mulholland Ross Team for our previous transactions."

- Mikhael and Elena, 2


"Working with Lauren was amazing!" A long time client enjoys the special attention she deserves as she purchases a new home. Our Buyer Specialist Lauren Rhodes was her 'angel' through the entire process! Barbara and I wish to thank you for your professional assistance during our recent purchase of a condominium and the sale of our house  that has been our pride and joy for 42 years. We were overwhelmed, with the undivided attention that was given to us. The combined purchase and sale,  from the day the condo we purchased in the building of our choice, went on sale, to the day our house was sold, took only 8 days.
We had no difficulty in choosing your firm following the excellent service you provided me when I was the principal contact for  a property sold by our church several years ago.
Your presentation of our home was excellent. Your networking with other agents in this multicultural community, resulted in at least 27 agents and their clients inspecting our home  in less than 3 days, resulting in 5 offers to purchase. Thank you for your professional negotiating skills resulting in a sale well over the fair market listing price.
We  will certainly recommend you to others. Keep up the good work.”

-The Duncans, Hazelglen Avenue


“Our family decision to move was unexpected – but exciting – and the Mulholland | Ross team made sure it stayed that way. They took us through the process efficiently with great expertise. In turn they sold our house in record time – we were impressed with all of the marketing tools (client lists, flyers, web etc.) We bought – we sold – we moved – and we had fun doing it – Thanks!”
 

“When you told us that it would take more than just a sign on the lawn, you were not kidding. We knew you two sold a lot of homes in the area and we were thrilled when you brought in an offer from your own buyer, but what was really refreshing was your professionalism and total commitment to our satisfaction. You two really hustle to get things done!”

-John and Dale, Betty Ann Drive


“Perhaps your interaction with us could be summed up by such words as professional, personable and promptness.  From the first phone call to the end of the process, these three things were always in evidence and we could rightly anticipate that every aspect would be handled with thoughtfulness and concern.  This is especially necessary when older people are making such an important decision – and for all of us to feel “easy” in the midst of it all, meant that we had made the right choice.”

-The Days, Harlandale Ave.


“I was very impressed with your manner, that was tempered with patience not pressure, your real estate knowledge and your enthusiasm.  You made the whole process so much easier for me..”

-Jean G., Holmes Ave.


“Your attitude, marketing approach, enthusiasm and knowledge of the business are all impeccable.  Selling a house is a rather harrowing experience, but I must say working with you made it most pleasant.”

-LGH


“The two of you answered all of our questions and addressed our concerns.  Our house was sold at 100% of the asking price, the deal was closed on time and you arranged for us to receive our check before the long weekend.  Surprising you made a difficult and some times sad decision making process, a pleasant experience.  For all this…we thank you.

-M&K Fakhimi, Stuart Ave.


“We are writing this letter to express our appreciation for all the work you did in selling our home.  …we were unsure as to whether or not we were moving or renovating our existing home, you were always patient and returned all our calls.  You certainly stand out as sincere Realtors and make us feel confident in recommending you to our friends.

-F&A B., Florence Ave


Happy Home Sellers!

THE ORA ROSS STORY
By Sim Greene

This is the story about Ora Ross
She’s the lady, who’s the Real Estate Boss,
Who’ll sell your home & get you your price
While all the while, being so nice!
With her partner, Peter, by her side,
Ora cuts a swath far & wide.
So, if it’s the time & you’re ready to sell,
List with Ora, she’ll do just swell!

- Sim and Helene Greene 2011, Seller 123 Charlton Blvd., North York


“My husband and I have been working with Ora Ross since about January of this year. Her expertise and insight with respect to real estate in the “downtown North York” area is unparalleled. This insight, combined with her ability to market homes and act tirelessly on behalf of her clients, makes her one of the best of the business. While we always knew Ora was at the top of her game, this was proven in spades when she expertly navigated us in the preparation, marketing and selling of our home. We put up our house on the market recently, we received an offer well above asking from one of her own buyers! Wow.”

-Janet and Randy, Sellers 153 Poyntz Ave., North York


“When you told us that it would take more than just a sign on the lawn, you were not kidding. We knew you two sold a lot of homes in the area and we were thrilled when you brought in an offer from your own buyer, but what was really refreshing was your professionalism and total commitment to our satisfaction. You two really hustle to get things done!”

“We are writing this letter to express our appreciation for all the work you did in selling our home. …we were unsure as to whether or not we were moving or renovating our existing home, you were always patient and returned all our calls. You certainly stand out as sincere Realtors and make us feel confident in recommending you to our friends.

R&K N., Park Home Ave.


“My family had to relocate as a result of a company transfer, and I am pleased to report that they sold our house in a slow market within two weeks of listing at a fair market price – in fact, beating out values established by two independent appraisers!”

R.H, Silverview Drive


“We can see their reputation is very much deserved. Their thorough professionalism, enthusiasm and calming influence made not only selling our home, but also purchasing one, all in exactly one week, turn into a very rewarding experience.”

The Blairs., Acton Ave.


“They manage to combine caring and confidence while retaining a very professional approach. We have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone seeking the services of true real estate professionals.

-Don and Maureen, Park Home Ave.


“You were both very professional in every aspect of the sale and very sensitive to our situation and our concerns during the period of the sale. We were very satisfied with your efforts and would recommend you to anyone – in fact we already have! Thank you again for a job well done!

F&O Bayliss, Elmhurst Ave.


“The time that you took and the patience that you showed in explaining everything to us, and helping us to find a lawyer, was really appreciated. We were also very appreciative of the time that you spent with us afterwards on the many little details of which we were unaware.”

T&M Stewart, Stuart Ave.


“Ora was extremely professional and sympathetic. She managed to negotiate successfully between buyer and seller. Even after the sale, Ora followed up consistently until the final closing. I congratulate her on her patience and understanding. I would highly recommend Ora Ross as an excellent, professional and caring agent. She has a high sense of integrity and is sensitive to the emotional status of her clients.”

Ms. Zornada


“We are writing with regard to the sale of our mother’s house by Peter Mulholland & Ora Ross. We wish to extend our appreciation and thanks for a job well done in a very professional manner. Peter and Ora impressed both of us with their knowledge of the area and what was happening within the market.”

Sharon & Sheila


“Ora has proven to be an exceptional agent on many levels. We will continue to do business with Ora at every opportunity. She is absolute in integrity and effort.”


“Ora and her team have the three qualities essential to building strong relationships and closing successful deals: integrity, intelligence and enthusiasm.

Faroukh E. Kanga
Partner
Avenue Investment Management” October 6, 2010

“If you want a top R/E agent to help you either purchase or sell your next home; Ora is the agent for you. Ora helped us sell & buy our existing home during a time which we faced several market challenges. The element of Ora’s professionalism and perseverance is what stuck out to me most. With Ora there is no such thing as giving up until she finds that “right” house; And she DID for us! I would recommend her to work with anyone.”


“Ora helped to sell our home for us in 2005. She is a great negotiator and certainly one of the most prominent and well known agents in the North York area. She is “everywhere” and as a result, so is your home when you list it with her. She is also a pleasure to deal with.”

“I have recommended the Mulholland Ross Team time and time again to our clients and friends. She is the woman you want on your side to get the job done and get it done the way you want it. I never hesitate to recommend her to anyone who asks and I have only had happy results. Ora’s endless list of amazing qualities and experience complete the whole package.”

“I have worked with Ora’s team on two occasions, both selling and buying real estate. Our experiences have been excellent. Our latest experience was a condo purchase in Richmond Hill. It was a competitive situation and the guidance we received in a multi-bid situation was detailed, targeted and of course successful. They also found us something within a short amount of time and made sure that we were equipped with the right support team in the transition process. I would highly recommend Ora and the Mulholland Ross team."

-Keith


“Ora has a thorough knowledge of the properties which she handles and answers questions in a forthright manner. It was refreshing to deal with her.”

“Ora helped us purchase our first home, and sell it 10 years later. We found her to be very personable and to have a high level of integrity. She specializes in the North York area, and her knowledge of the area, the available housing stock and sales activity are unparallelled, allowing her to provide advice to her clients that is “right on the money”. She took the time to do things right (for example, when we sold our home, she sent the photographer over twice because a couple of photos weren’t perfect), to explain every step of the way, and to act on our concerns.
Buying and selling homes is typically a very stressful process in one’s life. With Ora and her team on board, we had confidence that we would receive full value for our home (and we did – receiving just over the asking price in a recession).
Thanks Ora & team!”


“Ora’s knowledge, enthusiasm and success is one of a kind. In my 25 years in real estate knowing thousands of realtors, I can say that Ora and the Mulholland Ross Team would be on the top of my list of the best in the business.”


“It is always a pleasure to work with The Mulholland Ross Team. Ora is a dedicated professional.”

“We’ve been down the buy and sell path 6 times working with a variety of agents. We came across The Mulholland Ross Team about 3 years ago when my family moved into North York. There is no doubt, she is extremely strong in this area. She did a very good job selling our previous house in Richmond Hill and helping us with our purchase in North York."


"We’re in the process of moving now. We didn’t hesitate to call Ora again. She is an invaluable resource who helps guide our decision making. It is important to mention that I don’t feel as though she’s trying to manage her own deal, she’s dedicated to making our deal work. I don’t feel pressured or uncomfortable with her, I feel that she is supportive and always has creative ideas that move the deal forward.
Another point worth mentioning: Ora understands what information is important to us and she is effective at filtering out what isn’t. This helps us to stay focused on achieving our goals and maximizing our opportunity.
I strongly recommend her, I feel that she is an asset to me as I look forward to future real estate investments.”


“We had the great pleasure of working with Ora over the last year as she tirelessly worked to find us our house. I have never experienced such dedication and work ethic that she displayed in helping us. Even if we changed our minds a million times, she listened and adapted, always giving us options and ideas until we got exactly what we were looking for.
If you want the absolute best agent out there, who will fight for you when needed – always with integrity and a smile, you must go with Ora -I know we will over and over again.”


“Ora is very knowledgeable about the homes in our area and she recently completed a market assessment for us in a timely and professional manner. We would recommend Ora to anyone looking to buy or sell a home, especially in Willowdale.”


“Ora is an involved member of our community and for a number of years generously volunteered her time to coach the children’s choir at Churchill Public School. As a real-estate professional I value Ora’s knowledge of the local market and her passion to understand and satisfy client needs. In my opinion Ora’s out going personality and patient low pressure style are two of the key attributes that have contributed to her overall success.”


“Ora was personable and patient with my mother, as we sold the family home that meant so much to her. Ora kept in touch for five years, and was never pressuring. She provided much-needed reassurance through this emotional transition. The family respected and appreciated Ora’s knowledge of the market and the area as the house was sold in one week, above the asking price. We were grateful to have Ora in charge.”


“The reason you see Ora’s “for sale” signs all over North York is because she’s so good at what she does. As a mortgage broker I’ve been privileged to serve Ora’s clients since 1994 and I’m always impressed at how positively her real estate clients speak of her knowledge and commitment. In any industry, there are always a few people that get it right. Ora is one of those people.”


“We have used Ora Ross to purchase 2 homes and to sell 1 house in North York (Yonge & Sheppard) in the last 3.5 years. We were impressed with Ora’s resume of experience, knowledge (both in real estate in general and in our desired neighbourhood) and her continual creative thinking to “close the deal”.
She has a very easy going personality, is very likeable and is strategic in her approach.
She exhibits a great skill set in designing a homes sell sheet in an effort to best portrait the unique and valuable features.
Ora also worked diligently to find us a home that was exactly what we were looking for and coached us through the negotiations with a recommended offer, counter offers, terms and conditions until the sale was complete.
We would highly recommend Ora if you are looking to buy a home or to sell your home in North York. You won’t be disappointed."
-Glenn & Jennifer


“We have had the opportunity to work with Ora a number of times when looking for a new house, and every time we are reminded of her professionalism, personable approach and integrity. She has expert knowledge of the real estate and provides great advice on different areas, alternatives, strategies for buying and selling your home.
Ora’s flexible and proactive style is a great advantage in any kind of real estate market, and I would highly recommend her for any kind of real estate service.”


“Ora was great in helping sell our house. She had great ideas to help sell our place faster. She always put 100% effort into everything she did and never minded us asking her question no matter what time of day. A good agent to have on your side.
Ron and Christine.”


“Ora has helped me three times over the years to both purchase and sell real estate. I recommend Ora without any question to anyone who needs assistance in either transaction. The results of all transactions exceeded my expectations. Ora is an expert in this area. Her personality and methods bring fabulous results.”


“As an Asian and first-time home buyer, I did have a bit doubt at the beginning of using Ora’s service. Her patience, her professionalism, and her approach (advising but not pressing) have proved I was so wrong. No doubt I will use her service again in the future.”


“Ora has been consistently in tune with the market and has a great personality who works well with other agents and her clients. We will certainly call her again for our next move. Her creativity and effective marketing skills ensured our home sold to our complete satisfaction within two days of listing.”

“Ora is an astute businesswoman and has an extensive knowledge of the real estate industry. Her tireless professionalism, in conjunction with her client-focussed attitude make her a smart choice to represent you in the busy world of Toronto Real Estate.”


“Ora is a great agent who treats you like a good friend. She went the extra mile in helping us with several transactions. I especially appreciated her direct, no nonsense approach.”

“Ora was very professional in all her business dealings. She spent much time with us showing us various possibilities, and she respected our choices. It was a pleasure to have her as our agent.”

“Ora was fantastic to work with on renting out our rental property. She conducted a complete background check and ensured us that we were getting the best renters. I would hire Ora Ross to sell any of my homes without hesitation! As a first time landlord renting a property – Ora made it so easy.”

“We chose Ora Ross to sell our house due to her vast experience in our neighbourhood. She impressed us from the onset – she earned our business through her knowledge of the market. She was very professional in all of her dealings with other agents. She handled a multiple-offer situation with the utmost. I would highly recommend her!”

“Ora surpassed all of our expectations throughout the recent purchase of our new and sale of our existing home. Her experience is clearly evident at each stage of the process. Through her guidance, knowledge of the market, and expertise in the industry, Ora provided us with all of the confidence and support to pursue and achieve what we have been struggling to find for a long time.
My recommendation is of the highest and without any hesitation."
-Mario De Meo.

“As a first-time home buyer, I had a host of questions and anxieties. Ora’s patience and honesty throughout the entire process was invaluable. She and her team were flexible and knowledgeable, and their New Home Guide provided great tools and resources to help with the move.
Thank you, Ora!"
-Susan Hamilton

“I have worked with Ora on several occasions. She has been very attentive and conscious of each situation. I have and still have no problem on referring her to friends or colleagues.”

“As in any profession, finding a competent and trustworthy real estate professional is hard. We hired Ora after interviewing several people with various degrees of accomplishments in our area. She was the only one who listened and answered our questions just to the point, without implicitly imposing her views over the subject. Her professionalism and expertise shone during the whole selling/buying process. We highly recommend Ora without reservations. She listens, she shoots and … she scores!”

“Ora is a seasoned professional with an outstanding track record in the Yonge-Sheppard catchment. Her sale’s approach is straight forward and up-front. Ora’s a great a negotiator who brings her years of experience to the table each time. Always a pleasure, Ora.”

“Ora is enthusiastic and professional. She projects both warmth and intelligence. I have found her to acheive consistant success while maintaining high professional standards and family values.”

“Ora and her team are go-getter Real Estate agents! Ora sold our home for a better price than we had anticipated, and within one week (we had a baby at the time and didn’t want to drag it on). When we were looking for a new home to buy, her team hung in there while we searched all over Toronto, and in the end, it was Ora herself that found exactly the house we were looking for. I would highly recommend Ora Ross.”

“On numerous occasions, while looking to purchase our “next” home, Ora (Ross) had been the listing agent.
She knows her Market.
She knows what buyers want.
She “listens” to suggestions, advice, etc.
She is very, very trust-worthy….almost to a fault.
Our present home,since June, 2001, was listed with Ora (Ross),…….and our own agent worked with Ora, in order to finalize our purchase. I would recommend Ora, to anyone, who needs a TRUE PROFESSIONAL.” (February 19, 2010)

“I’ve worked with Ora on a couple of deals over a long period of time, both as buyer and seller. I’ve found her professional and pleasant to work with on each occasion.
In my view, nobody knows the Willowdale residential real estate market like Ora and Peter.”

“We have worked with Ora on a number of properties and we keep coming back to her for the great results and professional manner in which she handles our business.”

“Ora is a very focused, goal oriented and hard working professional. As a supplier she is a pleasure to work with as you always know where you stand. Should Ora choose a company (she does do her do-diligence) as one of her suppliers they are happy to deal with her as everything is detailed and correct."
