Testimonials and Client References

Mary was fantastic to deal with, always quick to reply and handle any issues we had with our house. I highly recommend her for your property management needs. A++++++

Amanda Desjardins Tenant

“Prior to hiring Mary, I was trying to accomplish moving out and renting my property. With a very busy and unpredictable schedule this proved to be a bit of a difficult task. I chose The Vacancy Solution because Mary came highly recommended among my work colleagues.

I was really pleased with the results, Mary literally allowed me to focus on work and my move. She worked hard to improve the rentable status of my property and make it a competitive product. Along with advice, Mary kept me informed and educated me in the services she could and did provide. Even once a tenant was found and the lease agreement signed, Mary continued to show her dedication to providing the best service possible by doing small labor tasks around the house to ensure the best product.

As a direct result of my work with The Vacancy Solution, I found that I was able to move out and rent my property in about a month and a half. The carpets were professionally cleaned. The interior painted and small problems fixed. This was all done with a budget in mind. Never did I come close to going over budget.

I recommend Mary Richardson and The Vacancy Solution to anyone looking for peace of mind in property management. As a first time landlord, I learned a lot From Mary and found dealing with her to actually be a joy in my day.

Very professional but also personable. Mary made me feel like I was her only client. A testament to great customer service. Thank you.”
