Rick and Sandy worked hard to sell our home and were always available to answer any questions. They have a positive attitude and are very good at what they do. We would recommend Sutton Choice to anyone who has a house to sell.

Dear Rick and Sandy,

Rick: Scott Cooper (The One Group – Barrie) referred you as a knowledgeable and professional realtor in the North Bay area; and you did not disappoint.
Throughout our house shopping experience you were able to accomplish the following:
- Able to remark/comment, or find out, various attributes from each property visited.
- Detail the history behind each place.
- Make it to each place…snow/blizzard or shine!
- Provide value with you past construction experience.
- Effectively organize visits.
- Come prepared for each visit.
- Most importantly: be patient and understanding with both Kathi and I under the circumstances we found ourselves in – living in different cities etc.

Sandy: You were the glue that put this together. Behind the scenes there must be a knowledgeable and well-organized person to help things run smoothly; and you did. Thank you for accommodating, and putting together the final offer that got us the house we wanted. Both Kathi and I could always count on you to get things done.

You both are a great team together, and it was a pleasure working with you. Thanks for all your help and advice, and thanks for helping us secure the house of our dreams.

Best wishes,
Phil & Kathi
 
A big thank you to Rick and Sandy of Sutton. We had the pleasure of selling our home on Thelma Ave here in North Bay with them.  They worked very hard to get the job done! Open houses where held every 2 to 3 weeks with continuous feed back on the results of showings and open houses.  When our home sold before 2 other neighbours, they both decided to list with Rick and Sandy.Not only did Sandy and Rick sell our home but they sold both of our neighbours' homes  a couple of months later. They are two homes that had been on the market for almost a year!

We had decided to buy again about a year later (could not stand renting) and Rick and Sandy put their skills in action again. We looked at so many homes but they just didn't have the feel we wanted until Sandy calls with a listing that hit the market that day.  We saw it that afternoon and Sandy was so sure this was the one that an offer had been written up before we even saw it and poof that was the one!

Thank you so much Rick and Sandy! I believe that things worked great because you really listen and took your time to get to know us.  Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

We were very pleased with Rick and Sandy's professionalism at Sutton Choice when we recently sold our home. They were diligent in keeping us up to date with any information required to complete the transaction and ensured that we understood the many details so that both the buyer and seller were happy with the outcome. We would recommend their services to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

Rick and Sandy Sanderson are "real" real estate agents. You can count on them to do what needs to be done to sell your home. They do their job and do it well. I would highly recommend them when choosing to buy a home or sell your home.

This letter is being sent to you in appreciation for the successful sale of my home. Thank you for your hard work, dedication and guidance throughout this process.

We first met Rick Sanderson over 12 years ago when looking to buy a house on the lake. After speaking with him on a few occasions, we selected him as our real estate agent. Rick quickly impressed us as a hard working, diligent worker. He sold our home and found the perfect house for us on the lake, all within a relatively short period of time.

Twelve years later, circumstances were such that we needed to move back into the city. Having faith and confidence in Rick, we enlisted his services again, and once more, Rick got the job done. By this time, Rick, along with Sandy Thompson had established their own office with Sutton Choice. Both Rick and Sandy are competent, knowledgeable, ethical, and committed to serving their clients in a professional yet personable manner. We would not hesitate to recommend to anyone wanting to sell or buy a home.

Sandy Thomson and Rick Sanderson thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the kind words and encouragement throughout this big adventure. We could not have done this big move without the both of you. I would highly recommend Rick and Sandy for all your real estate needs, I know if we ever need to sell and buy again, we will definately be working with these lovely people again.

Thanks for everything :)

Thanks so much for your understanding Sandy! As you can imagine these last few days are very stressful with calls to make, appts, getting everything out on time and cleaning staff etc etc. Thank you as well for the good wishes. I would like it very much if you and Rick would drop in for a visit at any time on your way to Toronto or simply in the area. You have done a wonderful job for me with advertising marketing etc. and I have already recommended you to several people that I know. I feel that in the process we have become friends as you have been so helpful in every way not only in the process but in your understanding of my situation.

We had always dreamt of country living, close to the lake, in the peace and quiet. Being a young family, we never felt this was in the cards for us. Thanks to Rick & Sandy's hard work and dedication, we are now living in our dream home where we plan on watching our young kids grow up. Many thanks! :)

After moving my mother into Marina Point Retirement Residence, I needed to sell her house.  Naively, I had thought that it would sell easily and I selected a property sales service to accomplish this.  I was wrong.  Despite the house being affordable and in good shape, 2 months passed with little activity.  It seemed nobody shared my view that the house was a good buy.

Through his own initiative, Mr. Sanderson contacted me and indicated that he could sell my house.  He was flexible regarding commissions and confident that he could obtain the funds that we needed.  While I admit it took some convincing, I eventually agreed to have him list the house.

Immediately, he arranged a number of back to back open houses and, as a result, there was interest and in a numer of cases, offers.  Within a little more than a month, he obtained an unconditional offer of 98.8% of the asking price which we accepted.

The sale of the house takes a burden off my mind at a time when I have other more important family matters to deal with.  I am grateful for his help and would recommend him to anyone needing real estate services.

Yours truly,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Rick for his excellent advice and service on the sale of my home.  I had my home listed on Property Guys for 6 weeks.  I followed their recommendations and had a home appraisal done.  I was assured if I priced my home according to the appraisal, I would receive an offer between 90-96% of the asking price.  7 weeks later and over 2000 hits on their website, I had 2 people come and look at the house and no offers or any feedback on what was wrong.

I received a phone call from Rick asking if he could sit down and talk with me.  I agreed and he told me the reason I was not getting any response was that the house was over priced for the market and if I was willing to list it with him for the price he recommended he would get results.  He was a man of his word.  He sold the house in 4 days for more than the listing price.  I would highly recommend Rick for either buying or selling a property.  He works hard for you and looks after all the small details so you don't have to.

Rick sold us our home a few years back so when my wife and I listed our house for sale in  2013, we asked Rick to help us have a quick sale.  He certainly did that! When I wanted to put conditions on our first offer, he advised me that it might not be in our best interest and he was right.  When there were probliems, he was right there to look after them.  And Sandy, the other half of a great team took really great pictures of the house.  My wife and I will always be thankful to Rick and Sandy for the great job they did.

We recently listed our property on Lake Nipissing, Sturgeon Falls ON. Rick Sanderson was working closely with us from the beginning making sure that we understood everything in the sales process. Rick was very honest with us, explaining what was realistic and what was not in selling our home.

He is highly knowledgeable and a very enthusiastic agent. He is competent and dedicated with excellent people skills-all the qualities to be the best in real estate sales. Rick's excellent strategies in sales not only helped us get the best possible price for our home but the house was sold in one week!

In addition to representing our interests with utmost professionalism, his friendly manner made it a pleasure to work with him. We fully trusted him and what should have been a stressful time for us was instead very pleasant.

It is without hesitation, that we highly recommend Rick Sanderson to any prospective seller or buyer of property in the Nipissing area.

Sincerely,

Rick has served us well on 3 different properties in 2006.  I decided to hold mortgages and Rick worked hard to find a buyer for each property.  The benefit of being with Rick is he knew how to do all the paperwork and did extra footwork to bring a good deal to closure.  We will use Rick and Sandy in the near future and we would definitely recommend Rick to anyone else looking for a real estate agent.
