I want to express my sincere appreciation for the dedication of Gemma Barclay in the recent selling of my home (May 1, 2018). It was a difficult property to price with very few ‘comparables’ and a difficult time given the unpredictability of the market over the past year and a half. I had never sold a home before and found Gemma to be a very patient and informative guide into the often topsy-turvy world of real estate.In the end I was very happy with her availability, her generosity and her solidly astute expertise.I would readily recommend her services.
Thank you, Gemma!
Wow....that was easy! You guys signify what team work can really accomplish. Everything was taken care of with ease.
Definitely would recommend your professional real estate services to anyone.
Wishing you continued success.
Thank you again!
Jeff and Lindsey
Last summer we engaged Gary and Gemma
Barclay to sell our home. It was our first time selling. We had met them before having lived in the area
for twenty years and liked their straightforward and honest approach. We could not have made a better choice. Gary and Gemma are consummate professionals.
They know all the ins and outs of Real Estate and are always ready to answer
questions or give insight into the inner workings of the business. They know
the entire region intimately and have many contacts. They listen to your needs
and made the whole process feel in control. We were very satisfied with the
whole experience and have no reservations about recommending them to anyone
looking to buy or sell a home

We have worked with Gary and Gemma when we first purchased our home 10 years ago.. They have consistently kept in touch with us for all of this time. When we were ready to sell, they were top of mind for us. We listed with them and in a very short time the home was sold. It was not a stressful event working with them as they handled everything from beginning to end.
Gemma then started working with us to find us our new home , sending me new listing as they become available .We were able to go out and buy our new home within a week and Gemma handled all the details right to the end. We would highly recommend the Barclay Team for any buyer or seller that want a stress free sale.

We listed our home for sale with The Barclay Team because they were the most impressive of the number of Agents we spoke to before making the final decision to sell.
Our decision proved to be very advantageous as we ran into some unexpected difficulties in our bid to sell. Gemma Barclay worked tirelessly to resolve these problems and in the end brought us an offer to purchase for a price acceptable to us.
We highly recommend The Barclay Team for Real Estate issues.
With highest personal regards.

"Danny and I had such a wonderful experience with the Barclays.'
I initiated the call to Gemma and explained that I would like to sell. Gemma made an appointment to see me that evening. With their knowledge and expertise in the area, Gemma said if we list at a certain price we will generate multiple offers and the home will be sold by the weekend. I was quite surprised that the home will not take a long time to sell. We had so many showings that we had 5 offers and the home was sold on the Friday night for way over the asking.
The next day we immediately went out looking for a new home and after viewing about 10 homes we purchased the home of our dreams with the Barclays'.
We would highly recommend the Barclays' for all your real estate needs without hesitation."
Luisa and Danny Arreaga
"We are both very pleased to recommend "The Barclay Team", Gemma and Gary, to anyone interested in selling their home. We had our house on the market from the end of January and it was not until we contracted with them, the end of June, that we saw any interest, an offer was made and within a few weeks our home was sold! (and we live outside of King Township!).
We found them to be very professional, willing to liaison with other agents selling homes in our area, extremely well connected to the market, on top of all the high tech communications, friendly and straightforward.
This being our second home they have been responsible for selling, we do not hesitate in highly recommending them.
We would be most happy to speak to anyone regarding our experiences with them"

"I am very pleased to be asked to write a character reference letter for Gemma Barclay. In the last ten years, I have known Gemma on both a personal and professional level. Gemma has been our family's real estate agent since our arrival in Canada and has also been a close family friend. She has shown to be reliable and trustworthy, and has an excellent work ethic.
Gemma consistently goes above and beyond her duties as a real estate agent. she always takes the time to follow up with her clients after a sale, and is always ready to provide market advice when asked. Gemma has always displayed integrity in her professional decisions, and we would never consider anyone else in our real estate needs.
"It was a great last night to close the deal on the sale of our house. Joanne and I appreciate all of your effort in making this possible. We feel your help and input lightened the stress factor on all of this. From the hand out brochures to your detailed knowledge on the final negotiations showed professional team work.
It's our observation that your insight in the King City market added to the success of our transaction.
Thank you so much for all that you have done for us."
"After listing my house with another Real Estate Company for which I had very few showings, when my listing expired, I contacted Gary Barclay of Remax Realtron to come by and talk to me about listing my home that evening. I met the other half of the Barclay Team, Gemma, both my daughter, my son and myself were extremely impressed with their enthusiasm and professionalism. At that moment, I decided to list with them. I had lots of showings and within a week started to generate offers. I finally sold my house.
Gary and Gemma also helped me to find my new home.
I appreciate all the hard work and dedication they put in for me and I thank them very much."
"Way to go Team Barclay"
"Here are a few humble words of appreciation for your wonderful service..
There are thousands of real estate agents but only a very few good ones in Ontario. We were very fortunate to find Gemma Barclay and sell our house through her. We first bumped in to Gemma when we were looking to buy a house a year earlier. Needless to say to men, when buying a house, much of your decision is influenced by your wife and your family. My wife quickly spotted her real estate talent while she was showing a house to us. As a woman she quickly finds a way to the heart of the woman who wants to buy the house. She understands what women prefer and provides an unbiased and unostentatious opinion about the features in the house. As we walked away from the house my wife pointed me that we should hire her if we want to sell a house in the future. Although we didn't buy the house she showed us because of the price, we ended up buying a house in the same area and it so happened that we had to relocate within a year to the US. When the time came for us to sell the house, it was no wonder that my wife remembered her again. Things were more complicated now as we had already moved to the US a few months ago and wanted an honest, reliable, trustworthy agent and couldn't think of anyone else except Gemma. Right at the outset, she gave us the market value of the house and honest feedback about whether it is worth to do some renovation or not. She has good marketing techniques and within 3 weeks she had 2 potential buyers. Her skills in negotiating the deal and finalizing the offer is astonishing. She gives you the pros and cons of the offer and helps you to make the best decision. Without exaggeration she is a true professional of her kind that is hard to find in the real world. I would strongly recommend her to anyone who thinks of buying or selling a house.
"I wanted to express my sincere thanks for the wonderful work you did for my house sale. Your support and guidance throughout the entire process from listing to sale was very much appreciated. Your knowledge of the King City market made the difference in determining the correct listing price and offer process that resulted in a very successful sale.
I especially appreciated the complimentary session with your decorator/stager. Michelle's suggestions were taken to heart and enhanced the appearance of the house at sale time.
Again, thank you for all of your expert advice and support during this time. I would certainly recommend your services.
"Once we had made the big decision to sell our home, we interviewed three real estate agents to list our home.
From the start, we both agreed to go with Gary and Gemma Barclay.
Their initial presentation was thorough and professional.
They took note of all the relevant information and promised to get back to us soon. They kept their promise and explained to our satisfaction the reasons for the suggested asking price. A day or so after our listing appeared on line, I remarked to Trudy that, compared to other homes in our price range, our residence was well placed.
In coaching us to prep our home for a showing, the Barclays were thoughtful about their suggestions. For example, taking down some family pictures. The bottom line they sold our home in record time at close to our asking price.
We recommed Gary and Gemma without reservation: in a word professional, thorough and they know their market."
Trudy & Everett Baker
"Dear Gemma & Gary:
Nadine and I, would like to express our heartfelt thanks for the professional way you involved us in the selling of our house.
You were incredibly kind, friendly and most of all very patient with the recurring delays caused by the scope of the renovations.
Your input was invaluable through this whole process by guiding us with the do's and don'ts and the staging for the open house.
Our combined efforts paid off as to our surprise the house sold so fast and at 100% of the asking price!
Again, it was a pleasure to work with you. We will not hesitate to recommend you to whomever may seek our advice.
Danny & Nadine Landon
Very happy sellers"
Danny & Nadine Landon
"It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation for Gary and Gemma Barclay, “The Barclay Team”
Our meeting initially was a result of my seeing their listings everywhere in the neighbourhood that I decided I wanted to live.
Upon meeting them I instantly felt comfortable. They took the time to listen; they were patient and took the time to take me to properties that they felt met the criteria I was looking for in my next home. They were diligent in finding just the right property.
I have since sold and purchased 2 homes with their help and guidance.
They are everything anyone could ask for in Real Estate Representatives. They complement each other as a team, are kind, caring and listen to their clients, always keeping their clients best interest in mind.
Whether you are looking to sell your home, purchase a home, or both, you will be in good hands with Gary and Gemma.
They are not only my Real Estate Agents of choice; we have built a relationship that based on trust and respect.

"Being new to the real estate market, we appreciated the Barclay's thoroughness and patience in guiding us through the sale of our home. Gemma and Gary made the process a positive experience and we would certainly use their services for any of our future real estate needs."
John & Marilyn Caruso
"Just a quick note to thank you both for all your help in selling our farm property in King Township. The two of you did a marvellous job on the listing, promoting and selling of our rural property. Although the sale of the property did provide some challenges you helped over come all the obstacles in a very professional manner. We really appreciated your excellent knowledge of the local real estate market."
"I must describe our recent encounter with Gemma & Gary Barclay as educational and fulfilling.
Educational in that they showed us how to "declutter" our home and display it to the fullest.
Fulfilling in that they priced our home into a reasonable market for the area in which we live and assisted in the final sale of our home in one week.
The Barclays are, in our experience, ethical, aggressive in marketing (we were surprised to our our home advertised on the front page of the local newspaper), on the internet in quick time, and pleasant to deal with.
I would highly recommend Gemma and Gary Barclay to assist in any sale of real estate and will do so to friends and neighbours.
"Many thanks for the speedy, smooth realty transaction. We really appreciate your professional straightforward approach to our requirements in this matter, with your very warm and gracious personalities.
We would definitely recommend you both to anyone in King Township or beyond."
John & Kate
"We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for helping us sell our home. Your professionalism and dedication proved invaluable, especially those offers that were presented late in the evening. The efforts you showed went above and beyond your call of duty. Your personal assistance was greatly appreciated as was your sincerity and motivation.
Both Iris and I would highly recommend you."
Iris & John
"Just a short note that gives many thanks for helping to make our dreams come true.
Your knowledge of the market in King City combined with your professionalism and the truly caring team you are, made this transition most enjoyable and rewarding.
You are both most welcome to drop by anytime on any travels you may have to our new home in the great north.
You will certainly get our highest recommendation for anyone we know buying or selling a home."
Gerry & Rita
"It has been a pleasure working with both of you selling our home. You have shown that you have a good understanding of our position and our requirements and a willingness to tailor the sales plan to our desires. No doubt those requirements add to the difficulty executing the sale. Your diligent hard work has paid off for both of us.
We wish your team continued success and will be happy to recommend your service to anyone in the area."

Listing with Gemma and Gary Barclay was the best decision we made! They sold our 10 acre property in 1 week and for the asking price! It was previously listed for 2 years with other agents and it did not sell.
They are professional, do all their homework, they are very personable and are experienced in their work. When we are ready to selll our house, we will definitely hire Gemma and Gary.
Thank you so much Gemma and Gary for selling our acreage so fast!
