I have been buying and selling homes with Sandy for about 8 years now and couldn't be happier! I have bought and sold a total of 4 properties including rental properties, which means looking at dozens upon dozens of homes. Sandy is always patient and doesn't stop until she helps you find exactly what you want. When it's time to sell, Sandy went the extra mile to help me prepare and sell asap. I would never hesitate to call on Sandy or to recommend her to others.
We were an Agent's worst Client...ever!
My husband and I decided we wanted a change, but we lived in a great home, large property, great neighbourhood, great everything and really didn't know what type of change we wanted. So, we had Sandra show us houses for at least a year, probably over 100 homes with no success (no fault of Sandra's we just didn't know what we wanted). We also didn’t want to start the daunting task of preparing our home to list, which is the worst for a seller - prepping, cleaning, staging, keeping everything perfect and then having strangers roam through your house with very little notice - oh and with two dogs (one with a bladder issue) and two kids, yeah not fun!.
At the same time, Sandra was working with another couple and mentioned to them that we were thinking of moving - Sandy came in an Staged our home…..Two days later, with zero effort on our part, our house was sold - and sold for top dollar!!! - no stress, no rearranging our lives, we just needed to sign on the dotted line! She even found us our new home just a couple of weeks later.
If you are looking for an agent, Sandra O'Connor is the agent you need - we would never use anyone else!
In October 2015 our family came to a very difficult decision; it was time to re-locate my 87 year old father to assisted living. Upon meeting with Sandra, it was evident we had found the right person. Her concern on a personal level to the comfort of my father were paramount, and made it as easy a transition as possible. My father is happily adapting to his life in assisted living, knowing his financial stability is owed; in part, to the hard work of Sandra O’ Connor and the investment she made in us to get the best negotiation possible!
I have had the pleasure of Sandra being there for me through 2 house sales and we are now discussing my 3rd. I don't think I could do it without her. I know Sandra will make the whole process as smooth as possible. If there's a 4th - I will be calling her again.

Comparing our numbers to the anomaly year of 2021 seems counterproductive. However, RE/MAX Escarpment outperformed month-to-month compared to our trading area by 8%. The number to really take note of is month-over-month, which illustrates a trend which is happening in the market. The proverbial spring market has been extended due to weather, mortgage rates, and economic uncertainty. Our month-over-month sale numbers at RE/MAX Escarpment and Niagara have out paced our trading areas by 13% and 3% respectively. Proving that consumers chose us over the competition to navigate through a changing market.
