When choosing a real estate professional, get to know their history!
RE: Letter of recommendation for Marc Bouvier as a real estate representative.
Numerous recent home buyers had counseled me that when purchasing a house, the real estate agent can make or break the experience. Therefore, I was pleased that Marc was recommended to me by a close friend who recently purchased a home with Marc's assistance.
I met with Marc on a Monday and he reassured me that despite the competitive nature of the market, we would find a great home. I had a narrow window of time to purchase a house and to take possession, but within hours, Marc had sent me a list of over fifty houses which met my criteria. We toured the top houses on my list, and by Friday of the same week, I had purchased a home which far exceeded my expectations.
Marc introduced me to a beautiful area of the city I had dreamed of living in, but had not considered due to the price and availability of most homes in the neighborhood. Marc's creativity as a real estate agent resulted in the purchase of a beautiful home below the asking price.
I felt that Marc worked very hard on my behalf and was available at any hour. He made me feel as though I was his only client, frequently going out of his way to meet at the time of place of my choosing. Even after taking possession of the home, Marc called several times over the first weeks to ensure that there were no problems with the house.
I was impressed with Marc's enthusiasm, work ethic, honesty and genuine interest in facilitating the purchase of my home. I have highly recommended him to several close friends whom I am confident will be as satisfied with his performance and professionalism as I was.

RE: Letter of recommendation for Randy Bettens as a real estate representative.
I have known Randy Bettens for a number of years now, not only at a personal level, but in a work capacity as well when we used to work for the same company. My girlfriend and I were looking at purchasing a new home in Winnipeg and after initially looking at new homes and seeing their +'s and -'s, we decided to give Randy a call one evening to see what other options there were for us in the Real Estate marketplace.
Overall, I am not exactly sure how to describe his professionalism, compassion, and work ethics in a mere couple of sentences. Randy possesses a character trait that has become so rare in today's society. He listens before he speaks. He solves before he applies, and he never stops putting his client's best interest at heart. I think it was the trust and confidence that Randy exudes that helped us through the process.
Thank you for your time and efforts in ensuring we found our dream home at this point in our lives. We will always appreciate your commitment to excellence and your desire to help.

We just wanted to express our appreciation for all your help with selling our family home. Your sensitivity, patience, and ability to deal with our old house and all its problems was beyond our expectations so thank you again.
If ever we or anyone we know needs a realtor, we will certainly recommend you and your company!

A big thank you for all your help with the purchase of our new home and the sale of the condo! Who knew it would be such an easy process?!? Your patience and expertise throughout the purchase and sale definitely made things easier and less stressful on us. With transactions of this size it’s important to be properly educated, and you were sure to provide answers to ALL our questions (and even giving us additional information). We truly appreciate the time you put in, especially when we felt nervous about not getting the house we wanted so badly or actually selling the condo. If only you also took care of the move!!
We look forward to enjoying our amazing basement and soaking the sun on our deck…thanks so much for helping us land our new home! You can definitely expect referrals from these two satisfied homeowners!
If someone’s looking for a no-pressure, no-hassle, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic real estate agent, the Bouvier-Bettens team is definitely a go-to team!!

To Whom It May Concern:
We had Randy Bettens as our real estate agent for both the purchase and sale of our home. We were very impressed with Randy's enthusiasm and his willingness to do whatever it took to assist in our search and our sale. He was always quick to respond to any question we had or to any appointment we requested.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Randy to anyone looking for a real estate agent.
Just sending you a huge thank you for your help and patience. This whole house hunting thing is not easy. And now you get to do it with Dave! I really appreciate your help and positive attitude and for convincing me to give this house a shot. Funny how this is the one I least expected to get! Pass on a thanks to the owner as well if you can. Let her know she made someone very happy in a not so great circumstance. Thanks again and we'll be in touch....to sell this million dollar mansion ;-)!
It was an absolute pleasure being able to share the experience of purchasing our first home with your assistance. Being a first time home buyer (and now owner) we had no idea how much work was included when purchasing a home. Marc assisted us the whole time, making the process easy to understand and making our experience a great one!
He helped us find a home that we love - and always assured us that we would find a house in our price range in the area we desired when other agents (whom we met at some open houses) told us that we would not. Marc found us a house that had not yet been listed, thus keeping us away from bidding wars and unreasonable prices. He had our interests in mind the whole time and made our dream of owning a beautiful starter home a reality while staying well within our budget.
From seeing the first house to many weeks after our possession date, Marc was a great help!

To Whom it May Concern:
We first met Marc when looking at a home he had listed in
Lorette, MB. He met us at the door
with a huge smile and a welcoming handshake. He was super helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. We also found him to be super
accommodating and flexible with respect to scheduling a viewing.
We also chose Marc to sell our home in Winnipeg – and we
couldn’t have made a better choice!
Not only were our expectations met – they were far exceeded! Because everything happened so quickly
– we had to act fast and get our home on the market right away. Marc was right there to help. Pointing us in the right direction, making
suggestions – every single one of his suggestions made the world of difference. He really took the time to help us
improve our home and shared with us his expertise, something not all agents
take the time to do! He was almost
always able to be reached and if we left him a message, you knew he’d be
returning your call the second he had the chance and this we appreciated a
great deal as well.
Another aspect we truly appreciated about Marc was his
enthusiasm in his choice of words when he wrote up the description of our home
for the listing. It was evident
that he truly believed our home had tons to offer and you felt that when
reading it. This too contributed
to our success. Our home sold for
over 18% asking price – during a time we thought we might not even be able to
sell – wintertime and Christmas.
Without Marc’s hard work and dedication – this would not have happened.
Marc is not an average realtor – he truly puts his heart into
his work and it shows. We highly
recommend Marc to anyone purchasing or selling a home.
