Sellers experience with the auction of the house in Hopetown.
Sellers appreciate the effort put in by North American Auctioneers with the auction of this house and business.
I just wanted to say thanks for the excellent job you did with selling our building on Bysham Rd. Woodstock. After having the property on the market for more than a year with nothing and then auctioning it for $300,000 more than we were previously asking was fantastic! Even when we were running into problems with our own board, you showed up at our board meeting to calm who needed to be calmed and made sure everyone of us knew exactly what was going to happen step by step. I wish you all the best for the future and welcome any calls from potential sellers you may be working with.
Throughout the entire process, you and your staff were always there to answer any questions we had, and offered us sound and professional advice. You made everything so very much easier and smoother for both Lynn and me. I have been in the hospitality industry throughout my career and know what exceptional service is all about. You certainly provided us with that excellence in service.
We had the property on the market for over 12 months with a National Real Estate Brokerage and in those 12 months the Realtor did not bring me a single offer or even showed the property. We went ahead with all of your suggestions and after marketing the property for only 45 days we had 9 offers for the property and sold the property for very good price to a Toronto buyer.

Your advice about the cost of the home and your expertise on condition of the house were invaluable. Because we purchased that home before we sold the first house, we felt that we needed to sell quickly and for the right amount. You were reassuring and calm. We were pleased with the number of viewings you procured for us, and we were able to sell the house for an amount we were pleased with. Your recommendations about “staging” our home for sale were well received and very much appreciated – the house never looked so good! We would be pleased to (and have) highly recommend your services to anyone planning to buy or sell any property.

I am writing to recommend the services of North American Auctioneers and Anchor Realty / Michael Marienwald and his team. I worked and co-listed with North American Auctioneers / Anchor Realty on an Industrial property that was on the market for approximately two years prior to being listed with North American Auctioneers / Anchor Realty. Once it was listed with North American Auctioneers / Anchor Realty, they were able to sell it twice in an eight month period. North American Auctioneers / Anchor Realty has an invaluable prospective Buyers list and marketing strategy. Whether you are a Seller, Buyer, or Realtor, I highly recommend North American Auctioneers / Anchor Realty. They get the job done effortlessly and will never disappoint you.
Four years ago when you sold us our first home you had stressed that we should buy smart to ensure that we will have ample down payment when it came time to sell and buy our second home. Well it worked, you sold our 1st home for more than what we were asking and we’re left with plenty of down payment for the purchase of our new home in Dorchester. We have really enjoyed working with you and your patience and expertise has helped us make some great decisions all along the way.
Overall, I found Michael and his staff to be outgoing, friendlY, professional and very knowledgeable. I was pleasantly surprised when he also called me twice after the closing date to do a follow-up and make sure that I was completely satisfied with my purchase. I would highly recommend Michael anyone who was thinking of renting, buying or selling. He is definitely a leader in his field.
For the majority of people the purchase or sale of home is the single biggest investment made in their lifetime. It is refreshing to know someone that treats it that way and not just as figures on pieces of paper. I am convinced by the way you handled the whole process, which didn’t end once the paper was signed, that you do not look at this as just a business deal and the personal involvement you put forth shows genuine concern for the individual.

I was pleased with your quick and professional responses to my inquiries and for always being available to meet with me. This made the two transactions easily completed. My new home is exactly what I was looking for and I would definitely recommend your office to anyone interested in purchasing or selling a property.
After having our property on the market for seven years without being able to sell, Mike auctioned our property and had it sold in about 45 days for only $1000 less than what we were asking. He was able to generate interest in our house for the first time in 7 years!

Mike, I am sending this letter to express our appreciation for your services. It is evident that auctioneering comes very naturally to you. Thank you again for your services and I’d been more than happy to act as a reference for any such future endeavors you may undertake of this nature.
Thanks for all of your help and advice in selling our funeral home in Dresden which finally allowed us to start our retirement. You’ve been a professional every step of the way and we are very happy we called you.

We would work with Mike again in a heartbeat, and have recommended him to everyone that we know. In fact, our family members that don’t live in London (Barrie and Sarnia) wish that Mike could help them with their new home!! He wouldn’t have achieved that level of trust without being a genuine person, a hard worker, and a talented professional. The night that we closed on our new home, our close friends and family gathered to celebrate with us. We were honored that Mike was there -with us all the way, to support us right until the end!

Hi Mike, I just want to take this opportunity to thank you for the tremendous effort and the amazing work you put into the sale/auction of my house in Hopetown, Ontario. Since inception, we both walked into a difficult situation, both with the tenants and circumstances faced. Living more than 1500kms away from this house made managing the property difficult. After reviewing the hot real estate market, I realized auctioning off the property was the best option. I did my homework and the best decision I ever made was contacting your company North American Auctioneers.
Within a few days of you and I discussing the sale, you were in your car for a 6-hour drive to look at my property and check it out. And it was good you did. Since the tenants moved in you ,found that they had pretty much destroyed my place. So now I had a wrecked house with non-paying tenants wreaking havoc on my home in which I was 1500kms away!
Not only did you make this sale easy on me, but your determination to go out of your way to make the burden lighter was worthwhile and noted. You took it in stride, helped me with dealing with them, set up a showing schedule that the tenants agreed to and held the auction and sold the property. I was so happy that the property sold because I could get on with my life. After the first buyer didn’t close, it was a bittersweet loss because the victory was even greater! Again you took control of the situation, arranged a sale within a few short weeks, and sold it to a different buyer, for even more money with the miracle of this buyer agreeing to assume the tenants! Your service was exceptional!
Thanks again and best wishes.
Dear Mike: we just wanted to say thank you for your help in auctioning/selling our rental property in Windsor.
The auction went very smooth, we sold for more than we were expecting at the time. Upon closing time when our tenants refused to vacate the property, and would not leave you helped us take control of the situation and resold the property, yet again, to an investor willing to on take the tenants.
We appreciated all your professional guidance and advice, and would recommend you and your company to any friends or family. We will keep in touch with you also, for when we are ready to sell our own home.
Richard Mitchell and Shirely Waram
