I first met Brenda over 7 years ago at an open house that she was hosting. I was looking to purchase a home but was already working with another agent at that time. Even during our brief initial encounter, Brenda impressed me. She was so positive, helpful, organized, and professional—qualities that still shine brightly to this day.
Over the years, I have taken notice of how quickly her listings sell. She is a staple in our community and her listings are advertised extremely well. When my husband and I were ready to buy and sell, Brenda’s name was the first to pop into our heads. Selecting Brenda as our realtor has been one of the best decisions we have ever made!
Buying and selling a home, especially in this current real estate climate, are massive undertakings. It is essential to work with a realtor who goes above and beyond to provide you with the best experience possible. This is exactly the type of service we received from Brenda. She has been exceptionally helpful with every step along the way. She provided us with an amazing website with quality photographs. She even provided us with a stager –all on her expense. Our house has never looked so beautiful! As a result of all of Brenda’s hard work, our home was sold way over asking in just 5 days.
Brenda was also a superstar throughout our search to purchase a home. She always checked for any issues and nothing got in her way during her research. How many realtors would climb a gate to investigate a small crack on a brick exterior?! Brenda would! We were close to settling on a home that was not 100% ideal for us, but Brenda gently guided us toward other options. In the end, we found our absolute dream home. It hit everything on our checklist. And trust me when I tell you that Brenda is one impressive negotiator!
Brenda is a genuine, knowledgeable realtor who loves her job. Her passion for helping her clients shows in so many ways. Communication has been excellent. Brenda will always get back to you and find the answers to your questions. She treats you like you are her only client. She gets just as excited as you do when your house is sold, just as if it were her home too.
We proudly recommend Brenda to all of our family and friends. Thank you, Brenda! You are special and very rare. Stay who you are… always!

I found out about you through my friend Brigette. I couldn't have asked for better service and loved that you were so knowledgeable and never pushy.
I hope you continue to do what you love to do, helping people find their dream home, or selling with little stress and hassle, not to mention a warm smile.
Keep up the good work. You are a natural!

It is with great pleasure that I commend and recommend Brenda Seymour. Brenda was referred to me by a family friends when I commented I may sell my condo. The feedback I received of Brenda's professionalism, commitment and personal attributes were second to none. I liked Brenda immediately upon meeting her. She was prepared with extremely valuable information. Her skill and knowledge of the market along with some great suggestions put all in perspective in order to sell quickly and painlessly. Along with her stager, Suzy, the initial stages of the process were flawless.
From the staging, photography and listing my condo, the marketing was very successful with many showings. Brenda continued to communicate throughout the showings and always remained positive. Just a few days later I found myself going through the offer process with Brenda at the helm while she articulated each and every step. With appreciation to Brenda my condo sold over asking.
I would highly recommend Brenda Seymour to family, friends and anyone looking to buy or sell their home. I have great respect for Brenda's ethics and high energy level. Throughout the whole process from listing to the sale, Brenda proved to be simply the best. She is an amazing person!

I chose you as my Realtor as I was impressed with your previous track record of sales, and the personal touch you gave my daughter when selling her home years ago.
I loved that you were always readily available and able to handle all circumstances in a tricky market. Thank you for all of your help in selling my previous property and buying my new home!!!

We found you through your flyers and signs in the area. It was "five star" service from start to finish. You made the whole process very smooth, which resulted in a quick sale for over listing price.
Don't change anything... your service is perfect the way it is. We will, and already have, given your name to our friends. Thanks for everything! Jim and Linda

We met Brenda at an open house. She was honest with us about the market and seemed approachable. We booked a day of showings with her, and her knowledge of the area and bubbly personality really won us over.
Brenda was ALWAYS sure to answer our questions and make sure that we were taken care of. She would get back to us quickly and treated us as a high priority. Professional and available!
Thank you so much for helping us with the purchase of our first home!!

You were an excellent referral from my son Jason. Thanks for going the extra mile literally and figuratively!
August 3rd, 2015
My parents used you as their Realtor and we loved your positive, upbeat manner, along with the passion you demonstrated for your profession.
You were always quick to respond, informative, creative and imaginative when it came to unique living spaces. Honest, patient, trustworthy service! We never felt pressured. You were friendly, energetic, and fun; making our first home buying experience so amazing that we didn't want it to end!
Anyone would be lucky to have you as their Realtor. We look forward to working with you again in future!
We enjoyed your enthusiasm, promptness, and attention to detail. Thank you for all of your hard work, and helping us find a great property. We will use you again and refer your services.
Tammey & Gerry Bayer
Brenda believed in the value of our home. Her professionalism combined with her positive attitude and high-energy is a winning combination.
She was methodical and provided us with complete package containing everything we needed as Sellers.
Brenda broke the record in our neighbourhood because of her hard work and belief in the value of our home. Our example is a neighbour who sold their home with another agent 6 months prior for $60,000 less than what we sold for.
Great job Brenda! We will miss you!
980 Finley Ave
A friend recommended you to us, stating you were amazing and totally efficient. You sold their home promptly for above asking price.
The open houses were awesome and we had steady showings through our home each day. We had 4 offers and you sold our house in 10 days (above asking). You negotiated well with other Realtors.
You have an exuberant energy level and answered our calls and emails immediately.
We interviewed a number of Realtors and you were the best. You are totally professional and have an amazing work ethic. You should form your own company!!
John & Mary Richardson
You were referred to us and provided excellent service, fantastic marketing, and made the sale of our house a pleasant experience.

Our friends recommended you and we loved your attitude and included staging services.
You are the best agent to work with and we will definately use your services again!
Lance & Annette Groskopf
We met Brenda attending an open house. Brenda was the Seller's agent. We were impressed with her knowledge and customer service skills. She made us feel like a friend and you could tell she was genuinely caring and interested in finding the right home for us. We hired her on the spot!
Brenda took us to many homes we were interested in. She always pointed out the concerns she had with the homes we were viewing. It was clear that Brenda wasn't just looking for a quick sale. Brenda was patient and available 24 hours a day if we needed her.
Brenda's professional, friendly, considerate manner makes her a joy to work with. As a Customer Service Manager, I am VERY critical and expect perfection. The fact that I cannot think of anything Brenda could do better speaks volumes to anyone that knows me.
The staff at Sutton Group Realty were always wonderful to us. The Stager Brenda hired did such an amazing job. Our house sold in 4 days!!! The photos and website were top notch.
We met Brenda by chance, and within 2 months had bought and sold through her. She is fantastic at what she does and she is now considered a friend to us.
Thank you Brenda, for your hard work, patience and for making this experience (selling our first home) easy & fast!

I trust you to work in my best interests in selling and purchaing my home(s). Your honesty is refreshing. I like the fact that you listen to my need and don't try to peruade me to do something that I am not comfortable with. I really like your stager. She made my houses look like bed and breakfasts.
I would recommend you to my friends and family because I feel very comfortable knowing you would provide excellent service!
We selected you as our Realtor because you were friendly, professional, informative, knowledgeable and realistic about the real estate market in our area.
I had a very bad experience the last time I sold a house and because of that, was not looking forward to selling again. When you came to our home you were prepared, knowledgeable and professional. You knew our market and knew what we needed to do to get top dollar for our home. On top of that you were enthusiastic and caring. You were everything we were looking for!!
Derek and I would definately refer and use your services in future. You really are the best and we truly appreciate everything you did for us!
Brenda was professional, positive and hard-working. We liked that she included staging when selling our condo.
She went the extra mile and were never pushy while offering great suggestions. She was great!
Kristina and Adam
Brenda's professionalism and insight into the real estate market was unmeasureable. she knew exactly when to help guide us in the decision process and when to step back. Brenda takes the same care as if she was purchasing the home for herself. She made the experience of buying fun, pleasureable and we have recommended Brenda to friends already.
We selected you because of your friendly mannerism and a fair and honest market evaluation.
Thanks a million Brenda, for going above & beyond your job title and making the sale of my mother's house so easy and stress-free while our emotions were still running high with the passing of our mother!
Brenda has a positive attitude, good work ethic, and is very resourceful and responsive. We always are quick to recommend her when the subject of moving comes up.
Sean & Janet Morgan
I chose you as my Realtor as you were a friend since public school. You were very informative and kept in touch throughout the sale. I would use your services again and be comfortable referring you.
Thank you so very much helping me sell my property.
We chose you as our Realtor given your proven track record and professional business ethic.
It has been a pleasure to work with you during our recent acquisition. You kept the search on track with our very strict criteria and made this a fun experience, while never losing sight of our objectives.
We look forward to our next opportunity to work together.
Sapphire Developments Inc Whitby
My friends strongly recommended you. I liked your confidence and positive energy, and trusted your knowledge and track record.
In spite of the ridiculous time constraint (12 days), I knew if anyone could sell our house, you could and DID! I have already referred you.
Thank you so much, Brenda. I wish you continued success!!!
You were amazing. Everything was so smooth. The conact & communication from you was great. Not sure you could do anything to improve your service! We have already referred you!
Stacey & Mark Ainsworth
Thanks so much for everything. You made an extremely hard time so much easier. You were thorough and prepared. We appreciate that you went "the extra mile". We have already referred your services.
Tania & Jason Rock
My mother met you at one of your open houses and was quite impressed. You are very friendly & knowledgeable. It felt like we were entrusting a family member for the job of preparing and selling our home. We thought you did a great job for us, especially under the circumstances at the end of the sale.
Tanya & Mike Vander Groef
Brenda did her homework before the house was listed. She knew provided us with a complete history of sales in the area and comparable sales in Whitby. It greatly assisted us in determining a realistic, attainable selling price. She also provided superior customer service by being available whenever we had any questions and providing us with feedback after showings. Access to a stager was a service Brenda also provided which was key in making our home appealing to potential buyers.
Brenda is every seller’s dream Realtor. Brenda’s vast knowledge of the industry and current market trends along with her approachable, easy going personality took the stress out of selling our property. She went above and beyond and helped us create a show-ready home in a short amount of time. Brenda provided us with dedicated, superior customer service and promoted our property beyond the traditional real estate channels. As a result, our home sold quickly and easily. Working with Brenda was a great experience and we would highly recommend her to anyone who is thinking about selling.
Even in a difficult buyer's market, you were always optimistic and, very importantly, realistic. You gave us great advice when it came to our offers and were always flexible, understanding and wonderful to work with. Thank you! Don't stop being awesome! Kathy & Matt

We chose you as our Realtor after seeing the work you did for others. We loved your availability and friendly personality, and think you did a great job on our purchase and sale.
My dad is so impressed by to job you did that he will be using your when he downsizes into a condo.

We chose to work with you again because you are FANTASTIC!! You are prompt, efficient and very personable. Thanks again Brenda... you are AWESOME!
Diane & Darwyn Cripps
My son-in-law recommended you as you sell a lot in his area. I loved that you didn't push me to do anything I wasn't comfortable doing. You are great at listening to a client's needs, and always follow through.
You are such a nice person and never make a person feel rushed to make a decision. Thank you for all you did!
March 8th, 2018
You were recommended to me by Julie. You were always available, and we never felt like we were bothering you or that you were too busy to answer all of our questions. We were blown away by how well prepared you were at every showing.
Thank you for taking great care of us! We loved working with you, and my mother loves working with you already! Thank you!!!
February 7th, 2018
Brenda, you are a friend and have a great reputation in the real estate world. Jack and I found you to be very professional,informative, available & knowledgeable. We also appreciated the way that you respected our choices, wishes and time.
Thanks for everything, Brenda! You helped us sell our house for the price we needed and in the required timeline. So professional!!
Sharon and Jack
I selected Brenda because she and I had been acquaintances, being neighbours, for something in the order of 10 years. I also noticed her many signs on various properties in the district and concluded that she must have been very successful.
She went well beyond the service expected of a real estate agent. I felt that the took a personal interest in the sale of my property and never wavered from acting in my best interests.
I can't think of anything more she could do or could have done to improve her service. Her team (stager, photographer, office staff, etc...) worked diligently and professionally. I am sure their efforts were a large part in maximizing the sale of my property.
I would definitely call upon Brenda if I had another property to sell. I would also be comfortable in referring her services to anyone who may be thinking of selling their property.
Again, I must repeat that Brenda went well beyond her duties as a real estate agent to assist me in selling my property, and my appreciation for her efforts, advice and professionalism knows no limits.
Thanks again Brigitte for so highly recommending Brenda to me on the evening of April 11th when I was on the brink of contacting another realtor to help me sell the condo. You knew the stress and anxiety I was undergoing at the time and I just cannot stop thanking you, and I'm so so thankful that I took your advice!!
I reached out to Brenda in the wee hours of April 12th and she contacted me a few hours later arranging to meet with Ron and I at the condo 2 days later (the day that nasty ice storm was starting to sweep its way through the GTA).
I was in absolute total AWE at how prepared and organized Brenda was for our initial meeting. So much valuable information was prepared for me and Brenda took her time at explaining every last detail including her marketing strategy for the property should we decide to go with her as our Sales Rep. Well we sure did! I knew immediately after just a few minutes of meeting Brenda that she was the realtor I wanted and needed to help me during this trying time.
Things move quick and smoothly after our initial meeting - from staging (at Brenda's recommendation) to professional photos/virtual tour, then office tour, followed by listing property on numerous realtor sites, to promoting on Social Media. And just 3 days after the property's listing went LIVE on April 24, it was sold on the evening of April 27 (the night before the scheduled Open House). And on top of that it sold for over the asking price in multiple offers too!!!
Brenda, you are truly "ONE OF A KIND" and are amazing at what you do and how you treat and work with your clients no matter what their situation is! I will be so highly recommending and promoting your services to ALL my family/friends/neighbours in the future. Your slogan "SEYMOUR SELLS MORE" is just so catchy and absolutely perfect for you!! Your services, your help, and your compassion extended to me and Mom during this stressful and emotional time will NEVER BE FORGOTTEN.
Sandy & Ron
FYI, I stole one of your fridge magnets off Mom's fridge for my own!!!! ☺️

I have purchased and sold approximately 18 houses so far in my lifetime and I have to say that the last 5 transactions stand out due to the fact that I had Brenda Seymour representing me. Her motto is "Seymour Sells More" - but it doesn't say enough. During the process she became my psychologist, my financial advisor, my helper and never have I had an agent put so much of themselves into the job. Brenda does this job because she loves it and is totally dedicated to her clients. Always at the ready for what seemed like the endless bidding wars in our search, and then she was as thrilled as I was when we finally found "the one".
I would recommend her without reservation to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home, especially to someone who is new at the process. Brenda is not new at this, and it shows in her dedication and knowledge. There are lots of agents out there who will sell your house for you but if you want top dollar, a smooth and seamless move, someone to stay on the job even after the move to iron out any kinks, a positive experience and the best advice in the business - then I urge you to experience what Brenda Seymour has to offer. Hands down the best in the business!!!!
When meeting you, it is evident within minutes that you love what you do. You had somewhat of a challenge working with three people on our sale. Two that have bought and sold homes and one with no experience whatsoever.
You provided immediate response and advice as to market value and listing strategies. You were patient, energetic, upbeat, positive, very knowledgeable and always available to answer a question. Being that it was an estate sale, you understood the emotions involved and treated us with compassion during a very difficult time.
We would have no problem referring your services, Brenda. You are a real gem!

We previously used your services for the purchase of our first home and loved how easy you made everything for us. When it came time to sell, everything went perfectly. You are honest and gave us feedback - good & bad. You get to know the people you work with on a personal level, which helps take the stress off of buying & selling. Day or night - we were always able to get a hold of you if we had any questions of concerns.
Thank you for everything. You're the best!

My sister referred you because you sold her house. You came across as very genuine and client-focused. You did what you said you were going to do and put a lot of time & effort into the sale of my mom's property (open houses, to staging, to constant communication).
Because of the sensitive nature of our sale, it was greatly appreciated the delicateness of which you handled everyone. All the family was extremely complimentary!
You were referred to us by our daughter and we loved your prompt & friendly service.
Keep up the good work! It was an absolute pleasure working with you!

Our beautiful daughter had chosen your business card out of a pile that we had. After hearing your presentation, we knew your energy and professionalism was exactly what we were looking for in an agent.
We really appreciated you patience and positive attitude. The hard work you put in really shows in the results.
We had such a great experience working with you. Although we found our dream home (thanks to you!!!) and will not be moving anytime soon, we would recommend you to anyone who is buying and/or selling!!
Thanks for all of your hard work!
Sarah and Alan Persaud
I met you at an open house and you had energy and experience in cleaning up "tired houses. I liked your fabulous advice in preparing the house for sale, your prompt replies to my inquiries and your going above and beyond to help in any way you could. Suzy is a wonderful stager too!
Thank you for everything, Brenda. You made a rather painful exercise so much more bearable. I KNOW I wouldn't have been able to market the house as well without you!
You were highly recommended by my daughter and son-in-law. You made the sale of their home as fast and pleasant as possbile.
You have a great, warm personality. You were always prompt, on the ball in every way, and took into consideration the emotional aspects of my move.
I would strongly recommend that anyone considering Brenda should put his or her trust in her completely. She knows what she is doing and will have your best interest at heart. This also goes for her guidance with listing and acceptance figures, the importance of visiting other comparible properties, and staging with the amazing Suzy.
Thank you - thank you Brenda!
Excerpts from 3 page reference letter:
"Brenda exhibited a high work ethic and real "smarts". Brenda has an infectious energy level and a mind for detail - a truly rare combination in any professional"
"Brenda has made a huge professional committment to this business and it shows"
"Brenda really digs into the sale like it is her own property, truly hands on"
"... excellent grasp of the technical aspects of her profession - she has a clear mastery of real estate contracts"
"Extremely professional presentation throughout..."
"... she gave terrific guidance over the course of the process"
Brenda is one of the best professionals with whom I have worked in years, and certainly the best agent I have ever had, and I have bought and sold properties many times over the years. I can think of no areas where I was disappointed, and I am very critical typically.
I would use Brenda again, and I would be happy to speak to any buyer or seller who is considering her as a candidate.
We went to one of your open houses and kept your card because we loved your personality.
We chose to work with you because you were always available, whether through a phone call or text and always answered any questions or concerns we had ASAP.
Thanks for everything you did. Always available 24/7. Even meeting us on OUR schedule is something we really both appreciated!
We can't say enough to praise you for the job you did selling our home. We are so glad we asked you to be "the one"!
From the word go, you were amazing. Your advertising tactics are great. You are a "go-getter". You didn't just come in our home (like other agents did) and say... "You're ready, let's list and see"... you worked hard to get our house yo yhr point where it would sell quick.
You are very friendly, approachable, and get your nose out to meet the neighbours so you know what kind of neighbourhood we have.
Brenda, you were great. You know what will make a house sell. Every step was fully explained to us, great job staging, great job advertising & great job selling.
You, my dear, are awesome!!! Thanks for everything!!!

I called you because you are a good person, a hardworker and recommended. You were committed, prompt and all around great to work with.
I would use you again. You are the best!
Thank you for making our first home purchase as great as you did. Everything went so smothly & we appreciate everything you did for us.
You were friendly & got to know Jason and I on a personal level, which made us feel comfortable working with you. You always made us feel like you put us first. It was easy contacting you whenever we had any questions or concerns.
We couldn't be happier with the serivce you provided us - you were awesome :-)
We were already impressed from talking with you in the neighbourhood. Once we officially met about the sale and we reviewed all of your wonderful testimonials, how could we not select you as our Realtor?
You are prompt, concise, and honest and made the sale process fun! Loved the staging. It is a must. We will be comfortable referring your services!!!
We chose you as our Realtor because of your experience, enthusiasm & honesty. You made what could have been a stressful ordeal into on of the highlights of our move. We were pleased in every way!
Melissa & Jonathan Hirst
I was really torn in going through the home sale process again. Two years ago, I went with someone else, and I was not successful in selling my home, so I took it off the market. What really helped with the initial part of the process was you and your professional stager Suzie, coming into my home and helping me to understand the things I needed to do to get my home sold. You both made some great recommendations, and worked within a budget I could use. Making these minor changes gave me maximum benefits in marketing and selling my home.
Brenda, your skill and knowledge of the industry, and just properly guiding the home owner like me, is so critical. I don’t know anyone else who works as well or as hard as you do for their customer. You were most helpful and informative throughout all the phases of the sale.
You are truly the best! Thank you for selling my home. You have a dedicated customer – for life.
You are a one of a kind!
Brenda, it was a pleasure working with you. You were knowledgeable and prompt with information and listings. Thanks very much. I appreciate all the work you did on the condo and will be sure to refer you to others.
We chose you because of your fun and outgoing personality. You made looking for a house fun and enjoyable, and you helped us find our perfect home. We would be comfortable referring your services anytime! Thank you!
Robert & Adrienne Laforest
Thank you so very much for everything that you did for us while trying to find us our first home! Having a real estate agent that genuinely cares about your well being and just wants the best for you is not easy to come by. Thank-you so much for your honesty and compassion and for making this experience such a great one!
Kelly, Ryan & Madelynn
What we liiked best about your services was your enthusiasm, unfailing grace under pressure & your sensitivity! You simply cannot improve the best.
Brenda is the real deal. A very professional attitude combined with a keen mind and an endearing sensitivity add up to wow sales!
My wife and I have dealt with other agent's and you are one of a kind!
We called you as your advertising made you seem more familiar to us, and we liked that you lived in the neighbourhood. We appreciated your attentiveness and feel that unless you clone yourself, there is nothing you can do to improve upon your service :-)

Thanks Brenda! You put so much drive, energy and passion into not just selling my home, but ensuring I was well informed and comfortable throughout the whole process. You need to clone yourself!
Market information that we received from you over the years kept us up to date on our market. We loved that you were so knowledgeable, friendly, and very helpful in caring for our needs. We are very happy that we chose you! Great job! Keep up the good work!
