Our fantastic real estate agents David Halls and Michael Bennett not only found us our first home, they found us our dream home! It was such a pleasure working with these two every step of the way. They are very knowledgeable, genuine and kind.
Our recent move was our fourth one with Trudy! She is extremely knowledgeable and thorough! This was our first experience working with Trudy AND the Lifestyle Real Estate team. I was a bit hesitant as I really trust Trudy's judgement and didn't want to work with anyone else. However, the team works so well together and has excellent communication that by the second week I was comfortable working with everyone. With five realtors working together, someone is always available to answer questions, set up appointments, draft up letters, sign paperwork... This entire team took almost all of the stress out of the whole process of buying and selling a house. Our family spontaneously bought a home just outside of Guelph in August. There are many more things to consider when buying a country property with a well and septic and different township rules and regulations and what not. I didn't have to think about any of that because I knew the team was constantly working behind the scenes checking and double checking so that we didn't have any nasty surprises. And then there was all of the support they gave us while we rushed to get our house listed!!! Ten days to get ready, one day to sell! A plus (aka level 4+) across the board!!!

David and his team were great to work with. He helped us sell and buy eight years ago and we have done it again. David is very knowledgeable and very easy to work with.
Josh R. & Family
David was a great listener and provided invaluable advice as how to sell our place quickly and painlessly. He had a strategy, carried it out, and voila we sold the place in 11 days for over $60,000 than asking price.
I highly recommend this firm in general and David specifically.
I was impressed with the service provided by David Halls and Royal LePage Royal City Realty. David was helpful, knowledgeable and gave excellent advice. The condo sold quickly and for well above asking price.
I have been dealing with David Halls of Royal LePage concerning the selling of the my Aunt's house in Guelph, a city I am not very familiar with. David has been nothing short of excellent in the service he has provided be it: knowledge of Guelph and the real estate market, best practices for listing, showing and selling, making or arranging small necessary repairs and timing and acceptance of offers. I would certainly recommend to anyone who is looking to buy or sell. We were extremely pleased with the offer we accepted which was well over listing price. Indeed a pleasure!!
David and his team are a group of fantastic individuals! They are a pleasure to work with, have amazing customer service skills and have a depth of knowledge of the real estate market in Guelph. They really are professionals you can trust!
We can’t say enough about Brett's professionalism, true caring nature and extensive knowledge/connections in the Guelph area. Right off the bat, the thing that really resonated with us was that Brett really took the time to get to know us. He is incredibly service oriented, patient and always available to answer questions. If your looking for an amazing realtor in the area, look no further!

Michael helped my parents downsize from an executive townhouse by finding the right place for them at the right time as well as working hard to help them get their house on the market and sold in a timely fashion.
I knew when I heard that Jan went into real estate with your team she would find me a condo. She is a real go getter and an asset to your team. We will be so happy with the condo when we get settled but right now it is opening boxes and knowing where to put everything. It was the condo we wanted to be in and you folks made it happen.
Again thank you!
My sale was as an executor of an estate. David and his team were very sensitive to the needs of the life tenant who was moving out and in their answers to the questions by the beneficiaries. They relived a lot of the anxiety associated with a sale by an executor.
Brett and the Lifestyle team were very professional and helpful during the sale of our home. They even coordinated with the Realtor helping us relocate out of town to ensure a smooth transition for buying and selling. Thank you
Russ & Jan
I can't say enough good about David, Jan and how they run their business. I sold and bought my house, during a pretty down time, and they were most considerate, thorough, and caring. David went out of his way to explain all the paperwork and make all the signings work smoothly with my out-of-town sister. The house I got is perfect. David negotiated with the seller all the small details, which I had only mentioned in passing as I viewed the house. And his after-care has been great. He planned for lock changes, which I hadn't even thought of, and keeps in touch regularly. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending David and Jan for any real estate transaction you may have. He does Make Dreams Become Reality!
Dear David & Jan,
Thanks very much for your professional assistance in both the sale and purchase of the condos. The move went very well and we are enjoying the new condo. We will gladly recommend you.
Grant & Lois McRae
Brett was again successful in helping us purchase our new home in a very competitive market. He is our first choice for real estate.
David Halls has provided us support on several of property purchases. His understanding of our needs and his ability to find us appropriate sites has helped us achieve our goals. David has an excellent understanding of the market and great connections within our community that provide him early access to opportunities that arise. We value our relationship with him and his team.
We want you to know that we are extremely grateful to you for every bit of your kind and competent support along this incredibly efficient journey. Your advice was spot-on, your assistance in locating the help we needed when we needed it was invaluable and your flexibility in dealing with us at a distance was tremendously appreciated. We literally would not and could not have done this without you. Thank you very much. We will recommend you without reservation or hesitation to everyone we know who is considering a purchase or sale in Guelph or Environ. You have treated us very, very well and we are grateful.
Jim, Max and Vikki
Just wanted to thank you for all your efforts in finding us a condo in Guelph.
You were on top of every new condo listing that came on the market which resulted in us getting the condo we wanted. You are a real go getter which makes you a great real estate agent. Again thanks
Joan & Bill Micovcin
Many thanks for your help and guidance throughout my move. Your expertise made all the difference and is very much appreciated. Your attention to detail is amazing!
I used David and Jan to purchase my first house in Guelph. They were great. Very patient, attentive and flexible, they showed me many homes before I found the right match. I was especially glad to have their support when, a week before the house was supposed to close, we found it had been vandalized. They really stepped up and worked with the seller's agent, the insurance company and my lawyer to help make sure that my interests would be protected and the problems fixed quickly. I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy in Guelph. Thanks again guys!
I had the pleasure of working with Michael during my time as General Manager for the Guelph Mercury. Michael is a tireless worker, with a strong customer service focus while still keeping in mind the company's goals and objectives. Internally he worked well throughout the company helping out whenever he could. His knowledge of technology was an asset to advertising team as he shared this knowledge to make the department better. Michael would be an asset to any organization, I highly recommend him.
What can I say. Brett is pleasant, well organized, efficient, knowledgeable, and very accommodating. My wife and I (from Kenora) drove our son to Guelph on the Labour Day weekend for university. We had no intentions of purchasing a condo. We met Brett on a Sunday, looked at condos on the Monday (holiday) and purchased a condo by phone while driving back to Kenora on Tuesday. Brett helped us find a lawyer, home inspector, contractor to do some minor work and also found tenants to rent the condo for the next year. Over the following two weeks Brett was available by phone and email to finalize the numerous details that were necessary in closing. I would definitely recommend Brett to anyone who is looking at buying /selling property. Thank you.

We were very impressed with Trudy Dickinson's honesty and thoroughness as well as her hard-working approach to our needs. She strove to educate us as first-time home buyers and directed us to reputable professionals in the field. She is very accommodating to our schedule and went beyond the call of duty in every aspect. We have referred many of our friends to her for their future use.
We can’t say enough about the great service that we received from David and Jan when we decided to put our house on the market. Their expertise, professionalism and hard work made our experience stress free and helped us get great value for our house. We originally were tempted to try to sell privately but are so happy we opted to use their services instead. After experiencing all that was involved we realized that we couldn’t have done it alone and we had made a wise decision. If you are thinking of selling your house do yourself a favour and give David and Jan a call.
Pete & Jean Skov
I found, Brett is an excellent and highly professional agent. He is an appropriate agent for both buying and selling any property. He is honest, sincere, and dependable. I also now find him as a reliable family friend who is helpful in many ways. I wish his highest success in his profession and am sincere in making these statements.Thank you
Syed & Nilu
We are beyond pleased with the service provided by Trudy Dickinson. As first-time buyers, we needed honest answers to a great many questions. Someone who could understand our individual situation...someone to rally for our needs and desires... And someone who seemed to care about making our experience a positive one. Trudy's attention to detail and follow-up is exceptional and her genuine caring is so refreshing in this competitive business. She went above and beyond the call of duty when dealing with us and has made our first home buying experience more enjoyable than we could have imagined. Our experience will not be forgotten when the time comes to sell and buy our next home.
DR & SS
Hi David & Jan,
I ran into Lori A. at a meeting yesterday and she couldn’t thank me enough for putting her in touch with you for the sale of her home. It is such a pleasure to be able to refer people to you – I always know they will be very well looked after. In my opinion, You are definitely Guelph’s top real estate team! Thanks so much for always going above and beyond (and making me look good in the process)
Have a great weekend.
Brett is the best! He is super friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful in walking you through everything. He always has positive attitude which makes the whole process flow smoothly and is always a pleasure to work with. Brett is my number one go to in Real Estate. I will highly recommend his services to my clients, friends, and family with confidence that they will be working with the best
Even before I headed into my home buying adventure, you were always available to sit down and chat and figure out options to make what I had work for the time being. Naturally when it came to buying a new home to start a new life I came to you. Throughout the process you were kind, patient and I always enjoyed touring houses with you. You always provided me with the information I needed to make the right decision for me. Now as boxes begin to dwindle and my things find a spot in my new home I can’t thank you enough for finding me the perfect place to live. Thanks so much!
Brett was outstanding! He consistently went above and beyond our expectations in every aspect of the sale of our home.
Neil & Miranda
David, Jacques and I would like to express our gratitude and thank you for selling our home and helping us purchase our new home which included recommending a local agent for Dad in Mississauga for the sale of his home. Through your leadership we are three extremely happy people. David, words cannot express how you met all our goals through the process and the experience was seamless. As we reflect, there is no hesitation in recommending your services or providing a reference. Please extend our appreciation to the office team for all their support.
Jacques and Janet Roy
We were very satisfied with the service that Trudy provided. She handled the sale of our home in a caring and professional manner. She was very sympathetic and responsive to our needs and answered all inquiries patiently and thoroughly. We would highly recommend her to any of our friends in need of a competent real estate agent.
