Ross and Jenn took care of everything from painting to having cleaners in, and staging. Thanks to their time and knowledge, we were able to sell our home after only ONE day of showing. And because of Erin's keen eye on all new listings, we were able to view and purchase our new home as soon as it went on market. We couldn't have picked a better team to represent us, and they made what can often be a stressful time feel comfortable, easy and enjoyable. Highly recommended!!
By: Mike & Jenn
We were from out of town and felt some pressure to buy a home quickly. Erin was recommended to us and even though we did not know her we quickly came to realize that she was a pro. Erin has a quiet confidence that made us feel comfortable working with her. She showed of several houses in a short period of time and eventually we targeted one. Guided by Erin's recommendations, she successfully negotiated all terms and conditions for the purchase of our new home. In our absence, Erin was present for the home inspection and attended to all the conditions and details that came out of that process as well. Overall, we felt that she worked hard for us and made our transition from Marathon to Fergus a smooth one. We highly recommend Erin.

Ross Bridges was very knowledgeable about real estate in Oakville and was well prepared for any questions we had. He was also very patient and supportive during a challenging transition for us. Ross responded quickly to our desire to stage and sell our home and it was sold in less than 3 weeks. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ross and his team to anyone looking for a realtor.

I had been speaking to Ross for a number of years about moving but we just weren’t ready. He would call now and again over the years, each time remembering exactly what we talked about and updating us on trends in the marketplace & what might be ideal for us to look at. When we were ready to seriously look, although he had many clients, we felt like we were his #1 priority. We bought a new home and sold our current home through Ross. His real estate knowledge, passion and client focus is impressive and genuine. Everyone knows someone who is a real estate agent but I think Ross is different. He developed a passion for real estate early in life and you can see it. Negotiation skills is where the rubber hits the road and Ross was 'cool as a cat 'and I believe represented us very fairly, looking after our best interests. He was always patient and understanding during the stressful moments of the buy/ sell process and his sense of humour was always ready when things got a bit too serious. Most of all, what makes Ross unique is his integrity. He has a team of equally impressive resources all of whom have been amazing through the buy, sell and post-sale process…checking in, even offering to help get the house ready to sell! Our sincerest thanks to Ross, Jenn and Erin for everything and their Top Notch service!
We were moving back to Oakville after living abroad for some time, and Ross and his team were very helpful in sending potential properties to us to consider before we arrived in Canada. We were very impressed with his commitment to making himself available for showings around our timetable. He was very helpful in pointing out both the positives as well as potential issues with some of the properties and whether these issues would represent minor or major repair costs. We always felt that he was driven by finding the right home for us and not just closing a sale and we love the home he helped us find.

We purchased a house in July 2016, and Erin Rain was the real estate agent we used to do so. Our experience with purchasing a home for our son was challenging for all involved. Not only was our opinion as purchasers to be taken in account, but the opinion of our son was also important, since he was going to be living in the home. Taking into consideration the above, Erin was at all times patient with us. She communicated promptly by email and voice mail. She organized the many viewings with the most efficiency of time, and to accommodate our schedules. She behaved in a professional manner at all times. It was a happy outcome with the purchase of a home that my son and his children are enjoying. We thank Erin for her assistance.
By: Carol Clooney
I would like to express my sincere gratitude to your team for helping me with my purchase and sale. As you know, I completed a request for information form on the internet several months ago and I was contacted by Erin Rain. I outlined to her my wants and needs and she then watched listings that were in my price range and general geographic area. Some time after we began this communication, a condo listed that was in my price range and area I most desired. After receiving her email, I called and we met the next morning to view the property and by that night I had made my offer with her advice, and it was accepted. I was the proud possessor of a one bedroom plus den condo. We then proceeded to have some painting done at my house and it was staged and listed. The listing was completed on a Friday and the house sold on the following Monday over asking price. Needless to say, I was thrilled. Erin went out of her way to explain every step and bit of paperwork which made this so much easier for me. This process was not without much stress and uncertainty on my part. Both Ross and Erin were most helpful and respectful. Erin was the go-to person for all my questions and she was an absolute delight to deal with. She is compassionate, understanding and patient and she made the whole event more peaceful for me. I would recommend her highly. I ask that this letter be forwarded to the person who should know that I am so very pleased with Team Bridges, and especially Erin Rain.
I just wanted to thank you all for your wonderful help. I'm all moved in now, the boxes (mostly) unpacked and the "new" house is wonderful. When we listed the house for sale, I was very nervous - but you made the transaction wonderfully smooth. Your continued professionalism, understanding and support through the sale and subsequent purchase of the new property is greatly appreciated. You've set a new level of service for the real estate industry. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
By: Carolina & Cory
First time home buying can be a very nerve wracking process. We were half expecting a long drawn out process, and some very stressful months. But your expertise and patience helped put us both at ease. From the very first moment we sat down to begin the process, right to the very end when we found our home, we were very confident in the services that you provided for us. Instead of stress we found happiness. You made sure that our search was only for the kind of house we were looking for, and in the area that we wanted to live. You answered any questions we had, helped us resolve any issues we encountered, and gave some excellent advice even when we didn’t consult you for it. We kept saying to each other time and time again that we were very lucky to find such a great realtor. You were a big part in the purchase of our first home, and for that we cannot thank you enough. Your fantastic and professional assistance will never be forgotten.

By: Lynnette Millman
Ross and his team went above and beyond our expectations when it came to selling our home in Oakville. They were especially considerate of our son’s emotions and sensory struggles throughout the whole process which made things so much easier for us and more importantly him. On the other end, in finding our new paradise in the country, Ross’s devotion of his time and energy in finding the right fit for our whole family was outstanding. A truly amazing and professional team that I would recommend to anyone searching for a Realtor.
By: Dorla Price
I met Jo-Anne through a phone call she made to me regarding condos for sale in my building. I didn’t know of any, but I said I have a condo for sale in Florida USA and could she help me with that. She got in touch with a great realtor in Fl. which was Re/Max, and my place was sold in short order. I would highly recommend Jo-Anne for any task you may have as she goes the extra mile to get the job done. I suggest you give Jo-Anne a call. She is #1.
By: Kimberley N.

By: Laura Buzelli
Ross took the time to help me find the perfect home for over a year. He is patient, caring and easy to work with. He provided professional market advice at all times. His team is amazing and answered any questions I had during and after the process.
By: Stella Vincent
I just want to say a big "THANK YOU" to Jo Anne Adam's for listing and selling my house and also for trailing me around looking for an apartment. Jo Anne went above and beyond what was required of her in looking after me. I am happy to call her my "new friend".
By: Aaron Levy
Ross represented us both when we entered and exited the Ontario market. He went out of the way to spend a weekend with us while we were buyers on a tight schedule. Excellent market insight and tight negotiations got us the property we wanted in the midst of other competitive offers. Similarly as sellers, Ross expertly advised on staging, market position and competitive negotiation while communicating all information to us in near real-time. Quick sale at top rate!
By: Kim Gilliard
SUPERIOR customer service from start to finish. I would highly recommend Team Bridges if you are buying or selling your home. They are different from other Realtors. Its not just about the sale, its about finding the perfect home that suits your individual needs and wants. I had the pleasure of working with this team to sell my home in Etobicoke and purchase my new home in Burlington. They are true professionals who anticipate your needs and go above and beyond to deliver. Thank you to Ross and Jenn for helping me find my special home and exceeding my expectations!
By: Beth Walder
I have been working with Ross and his team as their home stager, for over 8 years now and highly recommend them. They are all very caring, hardworking, professional Realtors. They always go above and beyond for their clients.

By: Andre Forrester
Ross and Jenn are like family to us. We bought and sold our last 2 homes with them and have been extremely happy with their services. Visiting homes to buy, and scheduling showings to sell can be difficult with young kids but Ross and Jenn made it as stress free an experience as it could be. They went above our expectations to listen to our needs, to book homes matching our interests and to stage our home resulting in offers will over asking. We highly recommend Team Bridges as first class real estate agents!

Dear Brad: We would like to take this opportunity to extend our appreciation to you for the excellent service your provided to us during the search for our new home. Your professionalism and knowledge were outstanding throughout our house hunting and eventual purchase of our new home. Searching for a new home, in a new city, can be a very stressful time, your friendly and positive attitude helped to make our home buying experience enjoyable. In the future, when and if we decide to move again you will be the first and only agent we would call.
By: Darryl & Karen Didow
Thank you for going "above and beyond" in finding us the perfect home. When we sent you 17 listings that we found interesting, we never dreamed you would take the time to preview ALL OF THEM ON THE SAME DAY! Having done that, you carefully selected 10 for us to see - one of which has become our new home! You saved us time, and made the home buying process easier than we could have ever imagined. In addition, thank you for helping us hire the very best contractors to perform renovations on the home prior to us moving in. We have purchased several homes over the years - with this purchase being the easiest of all. At every step of the process, your professionalism and great service exceeded our expectations! As far as we are concerned, you are the GTA's only realtor.
By: Ed & Judy Jakuboski
Brad: Just a quick note of appreciation for all that you did to sell our home in Islington Village. When push came to shove, you kept us calm in a very high-stress situation, and we felt that you were always looking out for our best interests. The marketing proposal that you suggested for our home was thorough and comprehensive. In fact of the three realtors that we interviewed, you were by far the best prepared, and offered the most up-to-date options for the marketing of our home. Kudos to you for your efforts, as they paid off just the way we expected! Overall, we were very pleased with your professionalism and effort, and would be more than happy to recommend you to anyone looking for a great agent. Thanks again Brad!
By: Valerie South nee Jamieson
Ross Bridges and Erin Rain are the best realtors I have ever dealt with. Under Ross’ leadership, Team Bridges helped, supported, worked and paid for my home to present beautifully when listed. It sold much faster than any of us anticipated for top dollar. Ross and Erin rolled up their sleeves and worked far harder than any other realtors I’ve ever known. A joy and pleasure to work with Ross and his Team. I won’t hesitate to do so again and you have no reason to look elsewhere than Team Bridges for professional, hard working and fair agents. Thank you Team Bridges!

We have purchased our new home in February of 2007. Our agent who guided us through this experience was Brad Meadus. Brad listened to our needs and wants carefully and advised us throughout the house viewing on all pros and cons for each property we looked at. At no point did we feel pressured to make a decision since Brad gave us plenty of opportunities to weigh our options carefully. When we found the house we’ve been looking for Brad was there for us leading us through the process in great detail and with patience. When filling out the legal forms he explained each point meticulously making sure we were in full understanding. It made the process seem effortless and seamless. We are delighted by our new house, day by day we discover more features of it we love. We have everything we wanted – quiet neighborhood, lots of sunshine in the house, walk out basement and best of all lots of wildlife in the backyard that backs to a protected ravine. We have done many improvements on the home and while it looked good when be bought it, it looks amazing now! Just painting the walls a nice color changes the feel of the house completely. We can’t wait to move in and continue to add more of our personal essence to the house. Based on our experience I am thankful to Brad for all he has done and for the patience he has had with us. There is no doubt in my mind that Brad had his best intentions on committing his expertise in making sure we get what we want and not settle; and stay on the budget we have discussed. I have no hesitation in recommending Brad’s services to anyone looking to buy or sell (or both) the house of their dreams. With Appreciation,
By: Marian S.
Dear Brad, First and foremost, a huge thank you!! From our first meeting I felt very confident that we would work exceptionally well together. You were a true professional from the word 'go'. This was my first experience using a realtor for a purchase and sale and I'm delighted that you were there to walk me through it. You stayed in contact and were always available when I needed something. From our initial consultation, recommending the stager, finding me my perfect new home in the first day, getting my existing home sold within 24 hours of listing to the final negotiations, you were a true professional. You are the whole package! I would recommend you to everyone I know buying or selling. Thank you for everything, Brad. I wish you great success in the future and look forward to staying in touch.
By: Andreas Konstantakos
Erin and Ross and their whole team at Team Bridges were outstanding when it came to helping us sell our home. They were extremely professional and always available to help and answer any questions we had. They made us feel comfortable with our decision to list our home and always put our needs and requirements first. I would definitely recommend their services to any one searching for a new home.
By: Stella Vincent
I would definitely recommend Tom Blakelock to anyone contemplating buying or selling a property. Tom was instrumental in my recent sale and went way above what I envisaged he was expected to do. From giving me advice, to helping prepare my house to put on the market and making sure the garden and surrounds were ship shape. He has also helped me settle in my new surroundings. Tom and his wife Jo-Anne have now become my good friends.
By: Dave Guertin & Shelina Manji
Hi Brad, We wanted to thank you for all your help in finding us the home we have been looking for. You made our whole home buying experience very relaxing and enjoyable, from the initial contact to our possession date. Your advice was sound and honest, and your easy-going, no pressure manner and flexibility to suit our schedule made it truly a pleasure dealing with you. You were also a tremendous help in helping us find a home inspector and lawyer. We would recommend you to anyone and have already passed your card to a few friends that are thinking about buying a house. We wouldn't consider another real estate transaction in the Toronto area without you. Thanks for all your help!
By: Tonya & Bruce Redekop
As first-time home buyers we highly recommend Brad Meadus. Brad is professional, ethical and knowledgeable. His demeanor is one of confidence and calm; with Brad, there are simply no high-pressure tactics. He is so familiar with the housing market and trends and was remarkably patient with our many questions. His knowledge of the industry was apparent; when we would inspect homes he would point out areas of concern (drywall bulge indicating possible water leak, as an example) and when encountering such things always indicated the approximate cost of repair, so that we were aware of whether or not it would be worth negotiating. With Brad's broad network of professionals he was able to recommend several mortgage brokers and lawyers to select from. After the purchase, he even helped us arrange a professional painter and carpet steam-cleaner to come in and spruce everything up. Brad's flexibility in matching our schedules was incredible: on a few occasions he even met us at the airport while we were between flights! They say that buying a house is the most stressful purchase you will ever make and I must say that with Brad on our side this was simply not the case! Brad, Brad, he's our man, if he can't sell it, no one can!!! Yeah, Brad! (cue: pom-pom carrying cheerleaders doing high-kicks!)
By: Shawn & Linda McLeary
Dear Brad Just a quick note from the Mcleary family to once again truly Thank You for going above and beyond. The service that you have provided to our family has been second to none. It has truly been a pleasure to work with someone that has strong family values and takes the time to go over all the documents and fine print. Linda and I are still overjoyed on the sale of our house, selling in only in eight days at 98 .5 percent of asking price was awesome and more than we could have asked for! So Brad all we can say is keep putting your best foot forward it has sure came though for us! It's been great experience doing business with you, for your also a pretty cool guy! All the best in the future, and Thanks so much.
By: Doug & Astrid Leeper
Brad, Astrid and I would like to thank you once again for the incredible job you did in selling our home. We loved your marketing of our house and your follow-up marketing and sales strategy: the website and virtual tour were great, and we could barely keep up with the outdoor flyers! We were very happy with the effort you put forth to properly price our home, especially when you consider the different neighbourhood 'nuances' that are in play around here. A tough job, but in the end, we sold over list price...a pleasant surprise to say the least... When things got dicey at the closing date, you really came through! We couldn't believe how hard you worked to help pull the closing together. How many cellphone minutes did you use again? In the end though, it all worked out great, and we always knew that we were in good hands. Thanks for everything Brad, and we'll be sure to heartily recommend you to anyone who will listen... in fact, I think that you've already spoken to some of them! Take care,
By: Stirling Martin & Hassen Assaf
Just a quick note to say thank you for the excellent service you provided us on the purchase of our new home. We found you to be exceedingly helpful with all of the ins and outs of our first home-buying experience and knew right away that you would be our best choice! I trust you Brad as my agent and will be happy to recommend you to anyone I know who is looking to buy or sell real estate in the future. Thanks again,
