Past Client Comments
Len Chapman is quite simply a total and consummate professional. His straight-forward low-key style was a pleasure to work with, and made it very easy for me to completely trust him and his judgement.
He handled the sale of my Richmond Hill townhouse during November of 2014. Although that might be considered a slower period, Len perfectly understood the market, the seasonality, and the best strategy for the November-December time frame. His knowledge of the best ways to maximize the sale price of your house, whether it be recommended renovations, staging, pricing strategy, or scheduling the timing of offers, was always delivered in a candid and professional manner that was unfailingly polite and accurate.
When Len said, “I’ll take care of it”, I knew he would be as good as his word. He took care of everything, exactly as promised, and allowed me to know that, even though I was across the country in BC, there would be no hiccups and everything would happen exactly as he predicted. As promised, he delivered the offers for the price and timeframe I wanted.
I would recommend Len without hesitation (and have done so several times). Greyhound Bus Lines had a motto “Leave the driving to us”. Len delivers 100% on the motto “Leave everything to me, I’ll take care of it”.

Len helped me buy a condo in Richmond Hill, while I was undergoing major surgery at the same time. His experienced, competent, low-stress approach got me through both a real estate purchase, closing, and surgery.
All the little things he did, to facilitate the real estate process, meant the world to me. He reduced my stress, rather than adding to it, in what was already a stressful time for me.
I would not hesitate to recommend Len to anyone looking for a real estate agent. He is a modest man, but he was there to do all the little real estate things I could not do, during my surgical rehab, and it made all the difference.
Len has many years of senior experience in real estate but he really lives up to his motto of excellence, one client at a time, no matter who you are or what your circumstances.
I had remembered Len from when he showed me some homes 14 years earlier, and he is the same lovely guy now that he was then. Honest and trustworthy. I have a lot of experience buying and selling properties. I never doubted that Len would represent me well, and he did.
Thanks, Len. I still have packing boxes to the ceiling, but you are one classy guy. I LOVE my new condo. It all worked out exactly as I hoped, and you were a big part of that.

Len handled the sale of my parents house in Richmond Hill with skill and aplomb. He secured a very good price for their house - and quite quickly; but just as important, he was conscientious, efficient and very helpful in answering my parents many questions and guiding them through the whole process. His professionalism, thoughtfulness and ethics commend him! Many thanks Len!
Martin Stringer, Ottawa
Thank you for making the purchase of our home an easy and comfortable process. We appreciate that you took the time to get to know us, and the care to connect us with properties that would match our needs and hopes!
We felt supported by you at each step of the way--from our initial explorations online, days of looking at properties, the purchasing process, and even connecting us with tradespeople after move-in.
We have also enjoyed getting to know you and sharing cups of coffee at Starbucks! In this fast-paced and often heartless world it is a pleasure to connect with someone who maintains humanity in and a sense of community in business.

Tom and I would like to thank you for your outstanding service as our realtor in buying
and then selling our first home in Oak Ridges, Ontario and then finding the wonderful
Newmarket home we live in today. You're a true professional and it was a pleasure to
have done business with you.
I know it couldn't have been easy for you to deal with us when we flew out here in June
with 6 days to find both a warehouse for our business and a home in a Province we had no clue about. I really appreciate that with every showing you were able to fine tune exactly what it was that we were looking for.
Then when it came time that we were interested in moving you were right there helping us find the perfect place. Your knowledge of York region and all its amenities was truly helpful.
It is not often that we get to meet professionals who are definitely a cut above the rest and the next time we plan to sell or buy a home you will be the first person we call. We hope all is going well with you and your family.
We wish you all the very best and thanks again!!
Tom and Sharon Carroll, Newmarket
I'm writing to express my thanks for your work on my behalf in the recent sale of
my townhouse. I was fully satisfied with the process, and delighted that it had a
quick and satisfactory outcome.
It was a great personal pleasure to work with you, as well. I especially
appreciated the efforts you made to make an inevitably challenging time as
stress-free as possible.
Our association goes back many years. You have carried out a substantial
amount of work for me despite there being no immediate prospect of a purchase
or sale. I've always been grateful for that support and the ongoing interest you
have taken in my real estate 'adventures'.
Please feel free to use this letter as a recommendation to other clients -- they'll
be in good hands with Len Chapman.

Although I had purchased two homes in the past, my most recent purchase was the first on my own. Len was fantastic right from the start when I had little or no idea exactly what I was looking for, right through until finalization of the deal. He was very understanding when I was uncertain, was a wealth of information when I needed it and while providing outstanding advice, always allowed me to make any decisions required without pressure. Finally, Len was a huge help in negotiating the final purchase price.
I would recommend Len to anyone looking to buy or sell.
Gary Norris, Aurora
We asked Len to help us with the real estate moves we were planning to make because he was a neighbour and had always been helpful with advice on our community and asked for nothing in return. He is one of the few agents who never hustled us! It was easy to choose him to represent us.
Len brought many assets to the purchase of our new house and the sale of our existing house. One of the most important was his insight into the market and how our house was to be presented. As a result, our home sold within 24 hours of its listing, at a price which made us happy.
His professionalism and confidence helped us negotiate a stressful time in our lives.
