When someone takes the time to recount a positive experience, it speaks volumes. Whether it’s a recommendation for a restaurant, a vacation spot or a doctor, I have always felt that the testimonial is a powerful indicator of excellence. I strive to provide such excellence with each and every transaction, and below you will find the experiences of some of my happy clients!
Charlene helped us sell our house and purchase our dream house in 2017. Charlene was extremely attentive and paid very close attention to detail when helping us search for our dream home. My wife, kids and I had a very specific list of wants and needs, all while trying to maintain a budget. Charlene not only heard what we were looking for, but also provided us with ideas and thoughts we hadn’t considered. Charlene spent countless hours both searching for homes to present to us and taking us to see potential properties. Every property shown to us was within our budget and crossed most, if not all of the items on our list. Charlene was extremely patient with us and our two young children as we looked at countless properties. Eventually, we found exactly what we were looking for and Charlene made the negotiations seamless and stress free. Charlene was extremely knowledgeable and we trusted her completely.
Now came time to sell. Charlene assessed our property and priced it appropriately. Our house was priced perfectly and sold within a matter of days for more or less asking price in a very unstable market. This was a direct reflection on Charlene’s expertise, experience and knowledge. We were provided with a great website/virtual tour that truly spoke for itself. We’re convinced that the level of professionalism Charlene demonstrated and put into listing our house that it directly translated into buyer interest and a quick sale. We were nothing short of thrilled on our purchase and sale. We loved working with Charlene (and our kids did too). On top of her experience and knowledge, Charlene has a great personality and she’s really easy to get along with. We would absolutely work with Charlene again and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking at buying or selling a home.

When my husband and I decided to downsize, we didn’t know which realtor to go with, as we knew quite a few. Then we remembered a prior pleasant experience we had with Charlene and decided to go with her.
It is a decision that we have not regretted at all. Charlene advised us on when to put our house on the market, when to start looking for a new home, pricing, location, etc. The part that impressed us the most was she really took a deep interest in what we wanted, was always respectful of our needs and not once pressured us into any decision.
Her people skills are incredible, in a matter of weeks Charlene knew exactly what we were looking for. Her knowledge of the housing market is incredible, and since we were sellers as well as buyers, we relied on her immensely. Charlene not only sold our home for a great price but found us an amazing place we now call home.
Because Charlene found us our ideal home, we hope to not move again, but if we have to, then Charlene is who we will turn to without hesitation. She is not only a great realtor, but an amazing person and my husband and I thank God for her!

As first time buyers, my husband and I were looking for our own place and we didn’t have a Realtor to help us yet. Charlene came to our rescue and found us the perfect condo in Oakville. It took us some time to find the right place, and Charlene was very patient with us, we looked at both condos and townhouses from Binbrook to Oakville. She was very knowledgeable and always honest with her opinion on the property which we truly appreciated.
We weren’t very flexible with our availability since our work hours were very sporadic, but Charlene was very accommodating and always found time to meet us. Charlene will be our Realtor in the future when we are ready to move into something bigger and start a family!

Charlene was a great real estate agent to work with. My favorite part of working with Charlene was her instant communication skills!! No matter when or how I tried to get in touch with her, she would call or text or email instantly with a response; and if she was busy she would let me know when to expect a response or answer to my inquiry and would always follow up as promised.
I always felt confident in Charlene. She is personable, professional and pays attention to detail. I would definitely recommend Charlene to anyone looking for amazing prompt service coupled with in-depth knowledge of every aspect of buying a home
Searching for a new home is stressful and overwhelming. When my partner and I started looking, we chose Charlene because we knew we’d be in great hands. Charlene puts so much effort and focus into finding the place that meets all of your criteria, and she won’t let you settle. Throughout our entire search, it always felt like Charlene was available to us night and day at a moments notice to book a viewing or answer one of our silly questions.She made the entire process manageable for us, she’s phenomenal.
We recommend Charlene to any of our friends who are looking for a new home without hesitation. You’re in good hands.
Charlene was absolutely amazing to work with! She is very knowledgeable, helpful and accommodating. It was my first time shopping for a property and she made the entire process simple and enjoyable. She helped me pick out a condo that fit my needs in a short period of time.
As soon as we started the process, she was able to send me a lot of listings that fit my requirements. She was then quick to schedule viewings for the properties I was interested in. Whether through a call, e-mail or text, she was quick to answer any questions I had (no matter how silly).
I would definitely recommend Charlene as a realtor whether you’re a first time buyer or not
We would like to thank Charlene for the expert handling of our recent sale and the purchase of the perfect condominium. Talk about being in the right place at the right time! It was almost like it was too good to be true. She showed her street smarts and she knew the market. We were always well informed every step of the way and Charlene transitioned everything as if it was nothing at all.
This is a huge change in our lives as Charlene knew, for our family, in a very positive way. Thank you again for applying and sharing your knowledge and expertise.

We found Charlene to be incredibly knowledgeable about the industry and we felt confident that we were in great hands. She worked with us to pull together a fair offer and negotiated on our behalf to ensure our best interests were met.
We are very happy with the result and are now happily living in our first home!

My wife and I contacted Charlene when we decided to purchase an income property earlier this year. I sent her a listing of the kind of house we were looking for. A couple of days later she set up a viewing of the house and a few of her own choices. We ended up purchasing HER first choice. It was the best house and would generate the best return. I could tell she did her homework.
Charlene was very easy to work with. She was prompt with responding to phone calls, text and e-mails. We only had to meet a few times to close the deal and she always met at a convenient time for us. I felt that she had our best interest in mind rather than ‘just making a sale’. After the deal was done and we had tenants move in she contacted us to check up on the house and to make sure everything was in order. Charlene is one of few people who still have a passion for their career. She gave us a lot of personal attention and is genuinely a good person. I would recommend her to anyone purchasing a home and will definitely work with her again.

As first time home buyers, we weren’t sure what we were doing and had a lot of questions. Charlene was so supportive and made sure we were comfortable throughout the entire process. She showed us a quite a few condos that varied in size and layout, allowing us to figure out what was going to be best for us. But what we were most impressed with was that she took the time to get to know us on a personal level, to better understand exactly what we were hoping to find in our first home.
When we found the perfect condo, she took our calls late into the evening, coaching us through the offer we should make to ensure we were successful. Charlene made the home buying process fun and exciting and we absolutely love our beautiful new condo! We would highly recommend Charlene for any other first time home buyers and can’t wait to call on her again when we’re ready to make our next move.

As a builder, I expect a high level of professionalism and knowledge of the market from my Realtor. Good properties do not last long and it was of utmost importance that my agent be on top of the market and proactive rather than reactive when good properties came available. Charlene far surpassed my expectations and was able to secure the perfect property for my next project within less than 24 hours of it coming on the market! She always came prepared with knowledge of the street and area and never wasted my time taking me to areas that were not worth while.
Charlene is confident and knowledgeable yet not afraid to admit when she does not have the answer. She is honest, trustworthy and a fantastic communicator. Her professionalism and happy demeanor made her an absolute pleasure to work with and I will continue to buy and sell with Charlene for many years to come.
Charlene is a phenomenal Realtor! When my fiance and I wanted to take the first step into condo living, Charlene very graciously accepted to help us find our dream “home”. Having moved to Toronto less than two years ago, Jeff and I were not sure about where to start the search. Charlene was very knowledgeable about what each neighbourhood has to offer and quickly narrowed it down to what would best suite our must-haves, budget and most importantly, lifestyle.
Charlene constantly kept us in-the-loop of things. With her high level of commitment and determination, Jeff and I felt very assured and at ease throughout the whole experience. We would recommend Charlene’s services to anyone looking for the “right” place in the GTA and wanting a professional realtor to help find it. She will be the first person we contact when we decide to start looking for our forever home.

The first time we went house hunting with Charlene De Silva, we were terrified and apprehensive. As first time home buyers, we were completely clueless about all things having to do with real estate. Charlene was able to put our mind at ease, and show us quality properties that each peaked our interest. She narrowed down the long list of properties we had viewed online and wanted to see, to a short list of quality properties that fit all our criteria. A lot of time and frustration was saved, and we were able to find exactly what we wanted after only a half dozen outings.
Charlene’s know-how, expert advice and guidance made the process of buying a house comfortable, and exciting. She is honest, patient and always willing to go above and beyond her call of duty as a Realtor. What makes Charlene a great real estate agent is her ability to communicate effectively; she always kept us well informed and up to date through each step of buying a home. Buying a home is a life changing experience, and words can not express how excited we are to have found our dream home. We are so thankful and grateful to Charlene for all she has done. Charlene is a real estate agent you can trust to look out for your best interests, and find the home you’ve been searching for!
-Lindsay, Ryan and Zoe, Milton
The service and personal attention we received from Charlene De Silva was exceptional. She is truly an outstanding Realtor. Her knowledge of the Mississauga condo market and her willingness to go above and beyond helped us in our search for the perfect condo. Charlene is a great listener and will only supply listings that exactly match your criteria and budget. After patiently going through many listings and touring many units, Charlene made sure we were able to get the place of our dreams!
Regardless of whether you are buying or renting, I would highly recommend Charlene to help you in this life changing move. We could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide us through the process.

We are delighted to speak on our experience working with Charlene De Silva over the past 2 years. We were first referred to Charlene when we needed to rent out our house in Oakville while living overseas. We were concerned about having to work with someone from out of country, but during our first phone conversation we heard the professionalism and sincerity in her voice and were instantly put at ease.
Charlene went far beyond our expectations by helping us secure trustworthy renters within a month of posting. She also ensured the house was well looked after before the renters took possession including arranging for snow removal, professional cleaning, picking up our mail, etc. She even helped us once the new tenants were in by acting as a local liaise and fielding any questions or concerns and then relaying back to us. We were so fond of how Charlene took care of our rental that we spoke to her about selling our home earlier this year.
We no sooner asked Charlene about selling than received a call from her stating she had someone interested in purchasing our home. She literally sold our house within a week of discussing selling our house…is that even human? Charlene was able to negotiate a great price, and even better closing date to accommodate our needs.
If you want a real estate agent with a great sense of humour, keen insight into the housing market, extensive knowledge on home construction, extremely good negotiation skills, and just all around nice person, then call Charlene De Silva. If you don’t want any of these things, you shouldn’t be selling or buying, plain and simple.
