To whom it may concern: ....L&F listened to our needs and we ended up with pretty much the perfect house for us. In addition, we recommended L&F to my parents who had been engaged in an extensive house search. They actually had been quite disappointed with their own real estate agent and decided, after much deliberation, to switch to L&F. What left an indelible impression on me in respect of their search was the fact that my parents became overly keen to buy a house and were almost willing to take anything. L&F actually talked them out of buying two houses! In one case Les did a pretty extensive comparative analysis on the prospective house and several recently sold houses in the same area to show that the house was decidedly over-priced. This dedication to servicing a client's real needs, rather than seeking quick profit, has meant a lot to me and, not surprisingly, my parents. Gregory D. Senior Product Manager Gregory D., Toronto
To Whom it May Concern; I am pleased to provide this letter of recommendation for Fiorella Cribari and Les Raffay. I have dealt with them on both the sale and the purchase of a property. I consider myself an expert in the real estate industry, although I am not in the brokerage business. I have no direct affiliation with any company in the industry other than my consulting and my academic pursuits. Les and Fiorella understand that they are in the service business and strive to offer a level of service that distinguishes then from the competition. This service is well grounded in professionalism, trust, objectivity and strict adherence to ethical standards, qualities that do not always prevail in the brokerage business. I have recommended this team to others and will continue to do so with full confidence that I am not at risk. If you select this team you can rest assured that the responsibility you place upon them upon will be executed to your full satisfaction. Sincerely, James M.

Hi Les & Fiorella! I can't believe how quickly time has passed since the summer, but here we are, January already. Dave and I have thought of you often and feel we've been terribly remiss in our communications with you. It has been an incredibly busy and hectic last few months, to say the least. We both wanted to thank you so much for everything you did for us last year. Your time, expertise, patience and negotiating skills were invaluable. You both made the whole process so much easier for us, and we will be forever grateful. You two are a great team! We're still settling in to the new place and getting used to the neighbourhood. So far, things have been going pretty well. We have lovely neighbours and we've been pleased overall. We've made a few changes (the backyard actually looks like a backyard!) but we still have more that we'd like to do. I'm sure that will never end! I know this is probably getting into a very busy time for you both, but if you have any free time over the coming weeks we'd love to have you over for a drink and a peek at what we've done with the house so far. I hope this note finds you both well. Looking forward to hearing from you. Catherine B., Toronto
Hi, just a note to say thanks for all you have done for us throughout this process. As first time buyers, we had a lot of unanswered questions regarding the purchase of our home. Thank you for providing the answers to many of these and giving us informed advice on the homes that we visited!
