Testimonials and Client References

“Before working with Mary we were frustrated with the rental process and trying to find something that suited our needs. It was complicated wading through all of the listings only to find that they were not what we wanted and weren’t clear in the advertisement.

“We chose Mary and The Vacancy Solution because a friend recommended her and told us what she does. We were so excited that there was a service like this available for renters and not just home buyers!

We were really pleased with the results, especially as Mary was particularly attentive and so very helpful, she even made sure our daughter could take the OC Transpo to her school and helped us make sure that all the bases were covered. We had to do very little, other than provide her with some information and a description of what we were looking for.

As a direct result of our work with The Vacancy Solution, we found a home in our budget, with a landlord who will be equally as attentive and she met all of our “must haves” and she did it very efficiently!

We recommend Mary Richardson and The Vacancy Solution to anyone who needs to rent out their property or who is looking to rent and doesn’t want to spend all their time sifting through online ads!

Grow, Grow, Grow! Your service is wonderful and much needed, hoping to see you everywhere soon!”

Good day Mary,

 I would like to thank you for all the help today and all the work you did leading up to this. 

 It was very helpful to have you at the location today to have your eyes look over everything. It was a great help to have you point out all the things that need fixing and I hope that they will get done by the landlord prior to moving in. I would also like to thank all the work you did leading up to this. I understand you put a lot of hard work into searching even though we ended up only seeing one location. Your flexibility to change as we went was awesome. 

 As I said I will be making a post on the CAF Relocation Facebook page for others to hear about how helpful you have been. This experience has been so much easier with your help.

 Regards, Chris
