On a card from a Registered Real Estate Salesperson

Fortunately I did find the Cadillac of agents -- in you ! I can hardly wait to do another deal with you.


I am very pleased with all the pictures. You do a fabulous job of doing that! I think it's a good representation of our condo!

Jane and Brian

We looked at the “inthebeach” website and wow our house looks absolutely amazing!

Really appreciate your feedback – very encouraging to know people like our house.

Thank Christine once again for her great work on the website and brochures!


I’m sorry I missed your call with the wonderful news! I am so pleased that this sale has worked out so well.

Johan and Colette (writing from Mexico)

Hi Nick and Christine, Fantastic News ! ! ! Thank you both for all the help and advice and congratulations to you on a job very well done. There is a bottle of Tequila out there and we are going to nail it tonight ! !

Andrew and Debbie

We just wanted to drop you a belated note to say how grateful we have been for your help with our sale in the Beach and purchase in Downtown.

Both transactions went very smoothly, but where there were bumps in the road you always took action to ensure everything stayed on course.

You have also been most pleasant to deal with and have gone out of your way to help in matters that we overlooked (e.g. the meter readings).

We will (and already have) recommend you to friends looking to buy or sell in the Beach or Downtown. And we will of course be in contact when it is time for us to move on again!


I was very impressed with the outstanding work Nick Boothby, his partner Christine De Merchant and Lainey Bonsell did on my behalf to sell my condo at 35 Boardwalk Dr. Lainey did the staging ... She did an exceptional job with the help of Nick's pictures and accents. Christine did a wonderful layout of the information sheet, with coloured photographs and Nick's detailed description of the condo and facilities. Her web-site is amazing and easy to navigate. Also the virtual tour provided a great presentation of the whole condo. Nick was so helpful and pleasant and interesting to talk to..... I have recommended him to everyone I came in contact with at 35 Boardwalk.


OH MY GOD the house looks fab...does not even look the same...the photos are beautifully done! And the overall look of the pictures, lamps, ornaments is also great..kudos to Lainey's staging. Thanks to you and Christine for raking the gardens...they also look very clean and tidy. Again let me say that everything looks wonderful..and we are more than pleased with what has been completed so far... Of course we have the BEST in the biz looking after us !


I am stunned by the work you guys have done. Thank you very very much.

John and Jo Gribben

It was what I thought it would be, a comfortable business relationship.

You worked hard at the ... open house each week-end and as a result the house sold in only 3 weeks, a record for a high priced home.

You deserve all the success you are having and I know it will continue for you.

(Nick sold this home in the $850K to $875K range)

Phyllis Jessop

If you want to sell your home quickly and with success, the best tip I can give you is "bet on Nick Boothby!

It doesn't matter who you are, or what your house is worth, Nick treats you like you are worthy of his enthusiasm, integrity, passion and talents.

His upbeat attitude is contagious & uplifting, making selling your home a positive experience.

(Nick sold this home in the $350K to $375K range)

Dave McKee Colleen Burke

This is an overdue note to thank you for all your help with the purchase of our first home.

We really appreciated your enthusiasm and patience, and we always felt that you had our best interests at heart.

(Nick helped buy this home in the $150K to $175K range)

Lewis and Vicki Rusen

... it sold in just one week* ... certainly quite an accomplishment! (*Actually 11 days to offer - Nick)

Your attention to detail in every aspect of the sale was impressive.

We have not seen this level of focus and energy from any other realtor.

You were also a pleasure to work with.

(Nick sold this home in the $1.1 to $1.15 Million range)

Richard and Linda Moy

We asked you to sell our house in one week ... you did even better ! You sold it in 4 days !

In these 4 days you were able to list ... on MLS and prepare feature sheets for maximum exposure, arrange for photographs ..., arrange lunch for the open house, knock on doors personally, show ... to your clients, and - we must mention - you shovelled our walkway yesterday during the storm... you also brought in the purchasers to buy our house so quickly at a fabulous price !

We really appreciate your hard work and dedication.

You are truly an asset to your profession... Once again, we want to thank you for the tremendous job you did for us."

(Nick sold this home in the $475K to $500K range)

Michael Oldfield and Sylvia Carriere

We employed Nick Boothby in the purchase of (address given) and as the vending agent in the sale of our property at (address given).

In our dealings with Nick our this period we found him to be consistently hard working, ever mindful of our wishes and concerns during the selling period, and in particular highly trustworthy in all aspects of our relationship.

We feel we were well served by him as our agent [and] would not hesitate in seeking out Nick to represent us in the future.

(Nick sold in the $450 to $475 range, and helped buy in the $475K to $500K range)

Gerd Robertz, President, Doubleday Canada

As an American moving to Toronto with no true knowledge of the city, you came through with our request to locate a residence in a wonderful, family oriented neighborhood.

Your helpful and cheerful nature left us with a much less stressful transaction, and gave me the peace of mind that things would not be left undone once my family arrived...

(Nick negotiated the lease of an executive home)

Adam Santavicca

You made this not only a pleasant experience, but also an adventure with your wonderful upbeat personality.

We were most impressed with your dedication and commitment to us. You made us feel like we were your only customer.

Kristine and I highly recommend you to anyone either selling or buying. You are, without exception, the best real estate agent we have ever worked with.

(Nick sold this home in the $725K to $750K range)

Ross Strain

Your experience and professionalism, and your guidance to us in preparing our house for sale, resulted in reaching a completely satisfying sales agreement on the fourth day...

This sale has been the most amicable real estate deal in my experience, obviously a reflection of your civilized and good humoured approach to people and business.

(Nick sold this home in the $575K to $600K range)

Donna and Gerardo Capelli

I believe Nick did more than his job required in order to sell our house.

Nick gave us some good advice to help us make the house "show" better. He also loaned us over 15 pieces of artwork, 8 area rugs, vases, lamps... and cushions.

All these extras and advice made the house show well, and in the end we received several offers that we were extremely pleased with.

(Nick sold this home in the $600K to $625K range)

Paul S. Reidstra Xiao Li Quin

We feel fortunate to have you as our real estate agent.

Your professionalism, market knowledge and patience--particularly with our sometimes challenging criteria--were key.

Your ability to listen to us well, and understand our house-hunting criteria, were particularly important , and perhaps more so, your tactful help in defining our true needs...

(Nick helped buy this home in the $550K to $575K range

Alvin Choi

Just a note to thank you for all your hard work in selling my home so quickly, and so successfully, at full listing price.

What a contrast to last year, when it was listed elsewhere for less money, and still did not sell after three months on the market!

Beginning with your... spending hours and hours to personally stage the house for the professionally photographed feature sheet [&] professionally drawn floor plans [&] detailed description of all my upgrades, you left no stone unturned to get me the best price!

(Nick sold this home in the $625K to $650K range)

"Nick has shown outstanding skill and expertise in his field... but most of all... compassion and sincerity..."

"My only complaint was that the house sold too quickly,..."

"Your attention to detail was very much appreciated."

" are truly an asset to your profession."

Chris Tait and Kim Magee

Nick made selling our old home a simple, profitable and altogether pleasant experience.

Nick was also essential to our search for the perfect new home. He was patient, understanding, and took the time to listen.

Nick gently but forcefully steered us away from one un-suitable home despite our having fallen for its charms.

His foresight in ensuring we had the right-sized home has paid off in double... we're now expecting twins before Christmas !

(Nick sold in the $250K to $275K range and helped buy in the $475K to $500K range)

Tim Coughlin, Director of Operations, Nestle Canada Inc

You were the only person to deal with. Your "shoe leather" approach to selling a home was what we wanted.

Your knowledge of the neighborhood, pricing analysis, research and approach made all the difference for us.

You have consistently worked harder than any agent we have seen in this or any other neighborhood.

You clearly detailed what you were going to do, and then you executed flawlessly. You will get our business again.

(Nick sold in the $725K to $750K range)

Ben & Emilie McAllister

Your suggestions, work and assistance with staging the house made a huge difference.

When other homes for less money were not selling, you managed to sell ours for a record setting price... in just 10 days.

It was your hard working attitude and passion for what you do that convinced Emilie and me that you were the right agent to go with.

From what I have seen, no other agent does as much to sell a house as you ... From one Salesman to another, my friend, you know how to sell !!

(Nick sold this home in the $750K to $775K range)

Didi and Sheri Elkhadem

We are overjoyed and deeply indebted to you for all your marvelous efforts on our behalf.

We had no idea just how hard and tirelessly you would work for the sale of our house.

Your advice on how we should present the house was absolutely invaluable.

We wish also to thank you for being so exceptionally pleasant and delightful throughout the entire process.
