TestimonialsHere's What Our Clients Are Saying About Us!
By: Heather and Brad
Sylvia and Stephen were excellent to deal with. They did their homework and came prepared to list and sell the property. They were equally as prepared to negotiate a good deal on a the new property. They provided a first class photographer for the excellent marketing plan initiated to sell the house. It was refreshing to deal with quality people who always had our best interests in mind. Stephen and Sylvia were also patient and supportive while we tried to figure out what our next steps needed to be. All in all, it was a smooth process. Thank you very much.

Nothing but the absolute best, from beginning to the end!!! Dont want to do it again but if I had to it would be Stephen and Sylvia...
Outstanding. Always there at a moment's notice. And always available.
You will not find better agents. They are very good at what they do and wonderful people. I would recommend them to anyone. They sell your home like it was their own. You won't regret working with both Sylvia and Stephen.
Steve and Sylvia were a simply perfect experience. We told them our interests right away and was sent available housing within our needs daily. Sylvia then set up an initial day of house hunting showing us 7 homes within our range that presented differently whether it be bungalow vs 2 story, side split vs town house, turn key vs renovators dream. Once we had discovered our actual needs in a home the Stables team focused on houses that fit our criteria finding us a home within our budget that filled all of our wants and needs within a week. This all took place during an extremely difficult period of buying in the Barrie area and we are thrilled with the results. Thanks again Stables team! We will be back soon

Since this was our first home purchase ever, we knew we were in for a daunting task and firstly want to thank Sylvia and Stephen for their expertise, patience (extreme) and professionalism in helping us through this process. Sylvia was a wonderful guide to the various neighbourhoods and her knowledge of critical information like schools and neighbourhoods in the context of our wishes was extremely helpful. Once she figured out what we were looking for, our visits to homes became targeted and high yield as she patiently supported us through our search. We searched through many homes and she was nothing but understanding through these visits also accommodating our busy schedule. Once we found a place we liked enough to put an offer on, their team put our mind at ease doing all the comparables and helping us field an offer. Stephen’s expertise really came through here and we had the good fortune of seeing some houses with him too (yes, that’s how many houses we went to). Stephen would also note things in the house that needed fixing and was quick to put such clauses in any agreement and these points, while seemingly minor, really reassured us that they had our interests at heart. This testimonial is extremely overdue (we closed at the end of March) but we want to thank the Stables for being a wonderful guide through this process and would definitely recommend their team to anyone considering purchasing a home. Thanks so much guys!

By: Warren and Cindi
Our experience in selling and buying a home with The Stables was simply outstanding. They worked with us on a very personal basis and helped us to understand what we really wanted. They are very knowledgeable about the current real estate market and trends. It was their local area knowledge and networking that enabled us to purchase our new home. Stephen and Sylvia are always available; they would always show up on short notice, take us to see potential homes and answer out endless questions. We simply could not have done this without Stephen and Sylvia. Thank you.
By: Jonah Rubin
Stephen was great to work with. He understood what I was looking for and was good at narrowing down the perfect home. He was great at giving me the full story of each house we looked at and made sure I was comfortable with my purchase. I would most definitely recommend the Stables team for your real estate needs!
By: Mike & Kari
Stephen was recommended to us by some friends, and he did not disappoint! This was our first time buying a home, and he made the whole process as easy as possible. He was honest about the market, and available at all times. We can honestly say, if it wasn't for his quick thinking and knowledge, we would not have been able to find our house for the price we wanted. Thank you so much to the whole Stables Team for your help!!
By: Abbie & Iain
Not only are they professional this team is working hard for you. They sell your home as if it was there own and are constantly ensuring everything goes smoothly. They are realtors that truly have your best interest at heart. It is not just another home for them. I would recommend the Stables to anyone, even if you are just looking to get information. They know real estate and will ensure your selling or purchasing needs are met. You would be crazy to ask anyone else to do the job. Stephen and Sylvia are amazing.
Another amazing experience with Stephen and Sylvia!! What a team! All I had to do is give them my wish list and within a few weeks I had my dream home. If anyone is looking to sell or buy a new home I would highly recommend this dynamic team.
By: Janet & Alex
The Stables Team came highly recommended and now we know why!! They were so helpful, attentive, and knowledgeable. This was a first home purchase for both of us and we had a very specific wish list! Stephen and Sylvia were patient and flexible with us as we were both living out of town during our search and trips up to Orillia were very limited. Their expertise with the area and with the specifics that come with waterfront property are apparent. Stephen worked away and we now have our dream waterfront home. Thank you Stephen and Sylvia for making what could've been a stressful process so enjoyable.
By: Joy and Len Holtzman
Sincere gratitude for the tremendous amount of work that Sylvia and Stephen put into finding us a home. It was a long process, however, it was obvious that Stephen had our best interests at heart. It is particularly refreshing to be able to count on an agent who has all the answers to the many difficult questions we had. In our initial meeting, the analysis of the market he presented raised our confidence level and demonstrated to us that we were in good hands. Given the incredible demand in the Barrie market and the limited availability of quality homes in the south end of the city, we appreciate and feel that the Stables team pulled off a miracle in finding us the perfect home. I would recommend to anyone whose looking to purchase or sell a home to utilize the experience and professionalism of Sylvia and Stephen. Thank you a million times!
Stephen and Sylvia were recommended to us by one of our friends. Once we had our first meeting we knew we were in good hands! They were so professional and knowledgeable it made the whole process seem so easy and smooth! They were always so easy to get in contact with! The video and pics of our home were so beautifully done and very impressive! And through this whole process we new that Stephen and Sylvia had our best interest at all times! We would recommend the Stables Team to everyone! Thank you Stephen and Sylvia for making this process so quick and easy!
By: Cassandra & Kalle
Stephen and Sylvia were a wonderful help to us in finding our new home and selling our current home! They worked very hard to generate fantastic interest and allow for multiple offers. We were thrilled to sell FIRM for above our asking price in only two days! They were very responsive to our many questions along the way, always getting back to us quickly by email or phone. No question was a bad question, which is nice as a first time seller. Their attention to detail and their vast knowledge of the real estate process let us navigate what would normally be a stressful experience with the greatest of ease. We would highly recommend Stephen and Sylvia!!
Good initiative and integrity. Stephen search me out on a private sale, called it the way it was, smoothed out bumps along the way and delivered what he promised. He put this deal together...

By: Sheldon and Krista Murphy
It's always a stressful time selling and purchasing homes. Stephen and Sylvia negotiated 3 deals for us in the last month. Thanks to them we purchased our dream home and sold quickly our two properties WHILE we vacationed in Florida. Emails and texts were promptly answered and we were always reassured we would be taken care of. Even from 1200 miles away they were the easiest transactions we've ever done. They've made it so easy for us to recommend them to friends and family in the future.

My husband and I jumped into buying and selling with two feet forward and we owe it all to Stephen and Sylvia. They were honest, trusting, caring, extremely aware of our needs and made us feel very comfortable and at ease throughout our process.

By: Jesse and Natasha
Natasha and I had the pleasure of having Stephen and Sylvia as our agents. We were both very nervous and unsure of everything going into the process of buying our first home. Stephen and Sylvia were absolutely incredible. They walked us through the prosess and were extremely patient with us every step of the way. What we liked the most is that they were there for us to answer any question we had with a very quick response time. They we super professional, very patient, and have a very good understanding of the market and city. We were beyond pleased when we decided on our first home. ( they suggested it for us before we even asked about it). All in all we could not have been more happy with the Stables team and would 100% recommend them to anyone looking for their first or fifth home for that matter. Thanks you so much for helping us start the next chapter in our life Stephen and Sylvia!! Cheers !
By: Rick & Angie
Stephen and Sylvia were amazing! We found a home, went to see it and immediately wanted to put in an offer, that evening we had bought a home. We put our house up for sale, they gave us some ideas and suggestions to do before we listed and within a few days we had an offer and sold! They gave us information and helpful hints to help us get through what could have been an overwhelming experience. A huge thank you to the Stables team for making this all come together so perfectly, we couldn't have done it without you!

By: Glenn & Angela
Coming from out-of-province with the intention of purchasing our next home in Barrie, Ontario, my wife and I were fortunate to have made the acquaintance of Stephen and Sylvia Stables. The Stables were faced with an unusual and what could have been a difficult and frustrating situation. Our visits to Barrie were brief and sporadic,and given our real estate needs, there was a very limited inventory. However, Stephen and Sylvia persevered, demonstrating patience, care, consideration and a good deal of sensitivity and understanding for us personally and for our real estate needs. Their attention and efforts were far beyond the norm. They made themselves available whenever we called. Extremely knowledgeable and always aware of the local market, they were able to offer us a variety of possibilities and help us refine our search and eventually find that property we were looking for. We would recommend the Stables without any hesitation to anyone in need of a real estate agent in the Barrie area. Their expertise, professionalism, warmth and kindness make them the only choice in real estate in Barrie.

We could not have had a better experience with the Stables Team. They guided us through the purchase and sale of our first home with a high level of professionalism and care. They found us the perfect house to buy and staged it beautifully when it was time to sell. This made the whole process much more enjoyable and less stressful. We feel very fortunate to have been referred to The Stables Team when we were new to the area and I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Everything was done quickly and efficiently and I was helped every step of the way. The staging was done very professional as well! I'm extremely happy with the level of service I received and have already recommended you to friends.
By: Dan & Jen
My husband and I could not be more please with the Stables. They are quick to action, take the time to explain everything and are always willing to go the extra mile to ensure our main priorities were addressed. If I ever need a real estate agent, I will be sure to use them again
Stephen Stables was highly recommended to me by a close friend when I started contemplating selling my condo in Barrie. As soon as I made contact, Stephen had the ball rolling and made the whole process extremely stress free. Thanks to technology and his superb abilities, Stephen had my listing up within an hour, showings in the first 24 hours and I was kept informed every step of the way, including feedback from those who saw the unit. I never thought my condo would sell in less than a week but that's exactly what happened and I was amazed. Stephen was knowledgeable, professional, reliable and trustworthy. He recommended other professionals when I needed them throughout the process and they did not disappoint! His responses to any questions, comments or concerns that I had were always answered promptly, whether by text, email or phone. He worked around my schedule, explained each step of the process thoroughly and kept my best interests as the #1 priority in the sale. Stephen was honest, efficient and helpful, making the whole process, from start to finish, a breeze. Thank you Stephen!

Stephen and Sylvia helped me purchase my first property. They were great to work with and very knowledgeable. They walked me through the whole process and got me a great deal. Thanks again guys!!
Stephen and Sylvia are the perfect duo for all your real estate needs. Their personalities perfectly complement each other. Sylvia knew exactly what I was looking for in my new home and targeted homes she knew were right for me. My new home couldn't be any more perfect! She also helped me make sure my old house was ready for sale by knowing exactly what needed to be done to ensure maximum showings. Stephen is an unbelievable negotiator. I couldn't believe the deal he was able to negotiate on my new property but he then surpassed my expectation with getting top dollar for my current home. Don't look any further, I will guarantee you will not be disappointed with this unbeatable team!
