My wife and I met Michael at an open house that we had dropped into because we were curious about the house. We felt it was initially over priced, but Michael assured us that the market was very strong and it was priced correctly. Michael was not wrong as the home sold for significantly more than the asking price. My wife stated that it wasn’t really what she wanted anyway and Michael asked her to describe her dream home. When we both described what we wanted, Michael said “I know just the property that you will love”. Boy was he right! It was amazing. Michael helped us make an offer he felt was competitive and presented our offer to the seller. They liked Michael’s presentation, but we were ultimately outbid by an out of town buyer. We were devastated.

Michael didn’t give up and kept looking for a home that we would love. He eventually showed us one that checked off all of our “wants”. At first we were luke warm to the house but the more we looked at it - we realized it was perfect for our wants and needs. Not only did we end up buying it - but Michael helped us get a great deal in a hot market.

Then we were in a situation where we had to sell our current home after buying the other home unconditionally. Michael helped us prepare for the sale with suggestions on improvements and the staging of the home. We sold it quickly and for a great price. The process was flawless. Michael truly knows the local market and is a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Guelph market.

As a family who has bought multiple houses with Michael we can say with confidence that there will be no one else we will use as a realtor than him.

Michael guided us through buying our first home and steered us around many of the pitt falls that come with that experience. If we had any questions, silly or not, Michael answered them professionally and promptly.

As we out grew our first home Michael found the perfect fit for our next house as our family expanded. The patience and willingness to go the extra mile was extremely evident in this process as we looked at dozens of houses in multiple cities and townships.

Furthermore, Michael was able to provide us with what I feel was the best home inspector in the business. This service not only saved us from buying a potential financial devastating disaster, but helped us get to know our new home and what we needed to do to keep it running in great working condition.

Needless to say to anyone who is looking for a realtor: Michael Vadala has gone above and beyond the call of duty for our family and you would be in great hands if you had him as your realtor.

Thank you, Michael. Sincerely, The Kollee Family

We have recently purchased a house from Michael Vadala and would recommend him as a realtor.

We have dealt with other realtors in the past years, but our experience with Michael Vadala was by far one of the best. He was very knowledgeable and obliging to our requests for multiple, repetitive viewings. In our search, he was always prompt to set up our inspections and patient in listening to our comments and comparisons. With Michael’s help we were able to find the perfect home. Thanks, Michael, Brittany, Steph, and Bill

"We recently bought our first home and as first time home buyers we had lots of questions.

Michael helped us immensely by answering all of our questions and giving us advice we never even thought to ask.

He was laid back and let us go through our process and stepped in when we had a question. He had great patience as we looked at house after house until we found the perfect one for us. When it was time to make an offer he helped and advised us on how the process should go. Michael was a great realtor and we will definitely be contacting him for our future home buying/selling needs."- Lindsay Auger

"My husband and I weren't the usual clients that Linda and Michael Vadala worked with I'm sure. You see, we wanted to purchase a home that wasn't for sale! However because of Linda's knowledge of the area, the community and the family that owned the home she worked to make our dream into a reality.

At first, We were a little apprehensive about Linda representing the seller and ourselves however she proved to be very fair to both parties throughout the entire transaction. Whenever we asked questions or had concerns about the property Linda and Michael would contact the sellers, the builder or the vendor that did the work to get an answer for us. They always made us comfortable that we had made the right choice in having the Vidala's represent us in purchasing our new home.

Thank you to you both, We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to our family or friends."- Ron & Christina Flannigan

"Now and again you will find someone about who it's difficult to write about without sounding like overcome hyperbole; the simple truth makes them sound just too good to be true. Meet Linda Vadala. Meet her if you can stop her long enough to make contact, that is. Whenever we see a 5'6" brunette blur passing by, we assume that Linda must be in the office. Since starting in 1987, she has performed beyond our most optimistic expectations, consistently placing within our Top Ten Club for Royal City Realty salespeople across Ontario. In 1991, her peers also named Linda "Woman of the Year," our most prestigious award, in recognition of her unfailingly high ethical and professional standards. And on service surveys, clients have consistently awarded her a 98% overall satisfaction rating... proving once again that no one's perfect. Not even Linda. She's merely exceptional." - Murray Taylor

"Woman of the Year of 1991, our most prestigious award is presented to this year's recipient, Linda Vadala of Guelph's Waterloo Avenue office. Hopefully, the qualifications for winning the Man or Woman of the year trophy are well understood by now. This, just one of the many nominations submitted for Linda, and it pretty much says it all...

"She is extremely competent, courteous, helpful to other salespeople, very professional, a team player and a leader. She is also very principled. She goes beyond what is legal, ethical practice according to our Standards of Business Practice and she does the right thing in difficult situations. Simply put, Linda exemplifies what Royal City Realty is all about."

We couldn't have said it better ourselves." - Royal City Realty staff

Two weeks -- that’s all it took! Having Michael as my realtor was like having a best friend in the business! As I was a first time home buyer, he was there every step of the way to answer my questions. I completely trusted his expert advice.

Through both the buying and selling processes, Linda and Michael were professional, compassionate and provided outstanding customer service. They took the time that was needed to help us prepare our house to sell – including painting, staging and appropriately pricing. Through the offer process with the sale of our house, they were fair and honest, and truly fought for our best interest.

When it came time to buy a house, they listened to exactly what we wanted and needed, and provided us with many different properties to view and choose from. Michael and Linda provided great insight in to each home we looked at, and drew on their wealth of knowledge and experience to help us evaluate each home for our specific needs. As with the sale, Michael and Linda again negotiated the purchase with honesty, integrity and a true desire to get the best possible outcome for us.

I cannot say enough about how wonderful Michael and Linda are to work with. We entrusted one of our greatest investments with them and they delivered over and above our expectations, with professionalism, kindness and a genuine desire to deliver on our needs. - Stefan and Sabrina Oland
