May 2020 - I’m am so grateful for the Hanlon Real Estate Team during all that has taken place during this difficult time of Covid. I had made a call to Shirley Hanlon and within 5 minutes I had 10 listings to look. Over the course of 24 hours Sean Hanlon had viewings for me and today I have a new home to go to. I stand by my belief that either buying, selling or renting this is the team you want by your side My heart is full knowing that I could turn to them for help. Honestly, even during this unprecedented time they are a ray of sunshine. I’m always amazed by the Hanlon Team
May 2020 - I had the pleasure of working with Lisa Hildred from the Hanlon Team over the last few months in the search of buying my first home. She is very knowledgeable about the current market conditions and the process to go through when purchasing a home which allowed me to feel comfortable and stress free with my decision! She is easy to get a hold of and would update me promptly with new homes coming to the market. She was always available to view homes with me following my busy work schedule. I would certainly recommend Lisa to anyone interested in the search for a new home!
April 2020 - We worked with Sean over a period of 6 months, moving our family from B.C to Ontario and the service was phenomenal. He made purchasing a home, virtually, something we can do with trust and peace of mind. We highly recommend Sean to our friends and family and will definitely use him again in the future.

April 2020 We had the pleasure of meeting Lisa at a showing last year. At that time, we had just started our search and were not in any rush to purchase a home. We initially began working with another agent and when we decided to part ways with this agent, we thought back to that first meeting with Lisa and recalled how helpful and professional we experienced her in that brief encounter, so we reached out to her and we are so happy that we did. From the beginning, Lisa was open to hearing from us as to what was important for us in the home we were looking for, as well as what we needed in the buyer-agent relationship. This was especially important given the previous negative experience that we had. Lisa was knowledgeable and quick to respond to any questions we had. She did not pressure us in any way and provided advice that we felt was balanced and helped us to make the best decision for us when it came time for us to put in offers. We are happy to report that we closed on our new home a few weeks ago and we can't be happier. Pamela was also a great help in liaising with our lawyer as our closing date approached. The two of them worked great as a team to ensure that any concerns we had related to the closing were addressed. Thank you Lisa and Pamela for everything! We can't be happier with our new home!
March 2020 - A few years ago, Shirley from The Hanlon Team knocked at our door letting us know of their services and signed us up for their newsletter. This year when it was time to downsize, they were the first ones we interviewed to sell our beloved family home of 23 years. We met Trina Earle from the team, she asked us all the "hard questions" and then put a time line together for us to target for decluttering and preparing the house. All throughout this process, Trina and her team gave us encouraging words to ease any apprehensions we had. It was perfect customer service, they worked with us the whole way through without pressure. The work they did on our behalf including the staging process and the marketing materials were are all very high quality. The overall experience we had was truly positive -- and we will definitely recommend Trina Earle & The Hanlon Team to friends/anyone looking to change houses. A+++++
February 2020 - We have been using Trina Earle for all of our real estate needs going back to our first house. It was such a good experience we went back to Trina when we decided to upgrade this year to a new house in Burlington. As per usual it was a great and easy experience! Once we got the new house the team went right to work setting up our current home for sale. They took care of everything including staging, cleaning, inspection and all the other standard things. They were always very clear with timelines and expectations which took away a lot of the stress. It only took a few days before we sold our place at a very very very good price! Thanks Trina and the whole team!
February 2020 - When I decided to sell my home I was referred to Shirley Hanlon. I didn't believe listing in mid December was a good idea but she proved me wrong. Shirley gave me a detailed plan of events to expect for the following week leading up to the listing and her team went to work. Pre listing home inspection, home staging, advertising and we were done. The whole process took only 10 days. We SOLD in less than 24 hours on the market for over asking price. If you are selling or buying a home you must call The Hanlon Real Estate Team.
February 2020 - Home selling is incredibly stressful. Thankfully, we had a great real estate agent. Lisa Hildred walked us through the process and made our experience as stress free as possible. Lisa gained the trust of my family from day 1 and we knew we were in good hands. Before we listed Lisa had their staging expert make our home show worthy. Their professional photographer took amazing photos and videos for the web listing. All of this preparation helped sell our house. we always felt Lisa had our best interests in mind and we were kept informed through the entire process. We could not be more pleased. Thank you Lisa for an amazing job!
February 2020 - I couldn’t be happier with the Hanlon Team, Shirley and Pamela specifically, as they are the two individuals who have represented my parents and myself in a number of transactions. When my parents were down-sizing they interviewed several different agents and ultimately settled with the Hanlon Team. Their reasoning was simple – they felt heard and respected. My father was declining in health and although no longer able to make financial decisions on his own, they continued to involve both parents – speaking with each of them in a respectful and dignified manner, knowing full-well, the decisions would be left to my mother. There are things you can teach – like how to market a home and other things, like common sense and respect that often can’t be taught. You either have it, or you don’t. The Hanlon Team has both.
January 2020 - I recently had Andrew Burke with The Hanlon Team represent me in the sale of our family home. Andrew is a very attentive, personable and knowledgeable agent. He returned all of my calls quickly. He was always excellent at explaining all aspects of the transaction and kept me up to date. I was particularly impressed with Andrew’s networking and negotiating skills. I have valued his services immensely during this process, and I would highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home.
December 2019 - We decided to sell our home and we were referred to the Hanlon Real Estate Team. Everything from the staging and cleaning process, photo's and videos was amazing. We sold our home in less than 24 hours, over asking price. If you want to sell your home call the Hanlon Real Estate Team.

December 2019- Having to make the decision to sell our mother's house was not an easy one, and initially, it seemed a bit daunting. From the start Lisa and Trina were very understanding. They were attentive, personable, professional, informative, and made the selling process straight forward and stress free. We were very pleased with their service and would highly recommend them. Thank you Lisa and Trina, and the entire Hanlon team.
November 2019 - I just sold my home. Peter and the Hanlon Team did a thorough and professional job. Everything went well and smooth. Peter is extremely knowledgeable in the local and city market. No pain, a lot of gain. Thanks!
By: Rose & Scott
November 2019 - We would like to thank Trina and everyone at The Hanlon Team for the beautiful basket we received, we loved it! The treats were delicious. Thank you also for finding our forever home we haven't looked back and truly love it here. Thank you to everyone who made our transition flawless. We could not have picked a better team! Thank you again!
September 2019 - Sold over asking in 2 days! This couldn’t have happened without the support of the Hanlon Real Estate Team. Trina was always there to answer every question that I had. Shirley told us what the plan was and followed through on it. Elise, who did the staging, was so helpful. Pamela and Chrystallina were always supportive and answered every question that I had. The team took what should have been a really stressful process and guided us through it. This experience was so much better than I had anticipated! I would recommend the Hanlon Real Estate Team to anybody who asked. Thank you!
By: Ingrid, Stephen, Andrew & Denise
August 2019 - After 21 years in our Erin Mills home, raising our 2 children we made the decision to sell. It was a very difficult and emotional time for us - but in speaking with Lisa Banks Hildred (whom we've known for a while) our worries subsided a bit. She assured us that not only would she be there every step of the way but the whole Hanlon Team would be committed to making our transition as smooth as possible. Through the staging process to open houses and personal showings - the team kept us totally informed and considered our personal time as well. With all the care and consideration given to us and our family and helping to sell our home so quickly, we are so thankful to have had The Hanlon Team on the Brand Family Team! Thanks again for your professionalism and expertise on the sale of our home.
July 2019 - I just want to talk a little bit about my experience with Andrew Burke and the Hanlon Real Estate Team. They did an absolute fabulous job selling my home, took care of all my needs and reduced my stress enormously. The staging looked spectacular. He sold the house well above asking price and in just a few days. I am one extremely happy customer. I would highly recommend Andrew and the Hanlon Team. Thank you!
June, 2019 –I finally took the plunge and got into the rental real estate market!! I was very excited to finally have another source of income for retirement. I have been dealing with the Hanlon's for over 15 years and this was my first transaction with Sean Hanlon. This purchase could not have gone smoother. Sean knew exactly what I was looking for. He suggested that I look at a property that he thought I would like. I took a look at it and bought it. His communication throughout this entire process has been outstanding. He was on top of everything from getting me the price I wanted to pay, to dealing with all the paperwork for the lawyers and mortgage brokers. He answered questions that I had before I even had to ask them. I am so happy with all that Sean did for me. I am excited to continue to purchase rental properties and without a doubt I will be using Sean in the future. Thank you for making this so incredibly easy and for always being available to take my calls and answer questions within minutes of me sending him texts. Your client service and attention to detail were excellent.
June 2019 - A huge thank you to Shirley Hanlon and her amazing team for selling our home, which was the result of an incredible presentation. We are very pleased with the end result and know that it was your professionalism and expertise that made the difference. We thank you also for your patience and sincere interest in our wellbeing. It has been a pleasure working with each of you.

June 2019 - We recently sold our home with the Hanlon team. It was our first time selling and we are very happy that we chose them. Sean guided us through the process and helped set expectations. Sean and the team were quick to respond to any questions we had and kept us informed throughout. The home staging was very helpful for presenting the house at its best and the cleaning service was a bonus. We would recommend the Hanlon team to others looking to sell their home.
By: Alexandra and Yovanny
June 2019 - We have just recently worked with Andrew Burke from The Hanlon Real Estate Team and it was an excellent experience. As first-time home buyers, we wanted a realtor that we could trust and feel free to ask all the questions that we had. Andrew was always there to guarantee that we were comfortable with every decision and made sure to be available when we needed him. He was attentive, supportive and most importantly, he did not pressure us to make a decision. His knowledge and experience helped us through the process and we were able to find a beautiful home. We would highly recommend Andrew and the Hanlon Team to anyone, especially first-time home buyers.

June 2019 - Thank you to Lisa Hildred and the Hanlon Team for a wonderful home purchase and sale experience! It took us countless viewings before we finally found our new home. Lisa was extremely patient and encouraging through the whole process. She never let us get discouraged and was positive that the right home would come along, and it was her recommendation to see a property that ended up being the one! When it was time to sell, we got to work with a few members of the Hanlon team. Everyone was polite and courteous to answer all of our questions about the process. We were able to sell within 4 days and well over asking! It was great to work with their technology tools that allowed us to review important documents over email and accommodate our work schedules. We were beyond impressed that the team was able to work with our current condo corporation and future condo corporation to expedite processes and communication that we would have otherwise had to handle on our own. Thanks again!
By: Dianne Webber
June 2019 - A great company to do real estate with. Over the years, it was so good to know how well they knew this community as they worked and lived in it, so I knew they were the team to sell my house. They listened well to what I wanted and why, and took the time so I understood the current market and competitors. I really enjoyed my time, especially working with Shirley but the whole team was also behind her and instrumental in making my house sale happen in a timely manner. A big thank you to all of the team and I hope the buyer you found will love living in this house as much as I did.

April 2019 - When a penthouse condo unit in our building was sold at an unprecedented price a few years ago, we filed the name “The Hanlon Team, of Keller Williams Real Estate” for future reference. When the time came to sell our condo, there was no question as to whom we would contact. We contacted their agent, Trina Earle, who was successful in selling one of the condo units in the building this past January when the market was slow. And what a wonderful experience it was! We found Trina to be a top-notch sales agent. She and her team got the sale preparation rolling in matter of days, the home inspection, the staging, the touch-ups, the photos, the video, and even cleaning. The day after our condo was put on the market there were two showings and they both put in an offer, and our condo was sold in two days for above asking price! We cannot say enough about Trina. She always kept us informed or called to see if we had any questions every step of the way. She listened and gave us her opinion, was always honest and straight forward, and considerate. We found everyone we had contact or dealings with on the Hanlon Team to be first class. We would highly recommend Trina and The Hanlon Team.
By: Kim and Brian
March 2019 - We just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to Shirley, Peter and The Hanlon Real Estate Team for selling our house in only 7 days! It was a great experience from start to finish. They always kept us informed and were very professional. Shirley, Peter and the Team went above and beyond not leaving any details out. From making sure someone was here to take care of our dog Buddy when showings happened during the day to having photos of our outside done last summer. If you are looking for great realtors, The Hanlon Team are amazing and truly know their business. Thank you for everything!
By: Dave and Marcia
March 2019 - Working with Peter Scarcella and the Hanlon Team was a positive and pleasant experience. Their professionalism was evident from the beginning. My 90 year old mother was treated with patience and respect. All of her questions were answered in a thoughtful manner so she could better understand the decisions being made. My husband and I knew after our initial meeting with Peter that we had picked the perfect team to meet our every need. Peter went out of his way to show my mother kindness and empathy as she begins a new journey in a retirement community. Your level of expertise gave us great peace of mind. All of the details were taken care of in a seamless manner! Thank you for having our best interests at heart.
March 2019 - I would like to thank Sean for his attention to details and his patience in every aspect of selling my home. I never knew moving could be stress-free! Sean was always smiling, polite and very professional. He was a joy to work with. From beginning to end, which was one week (ya hoo), the efficiency and thoughtfulness was always given to me. The Hanlon Real Estate Team are some of the nicest and sincere people I have ever met. Thank you for helping me start my new adventure in a new home and location. I would definitely recommend Sean and the team to family and friends. Thanks again. Cathy
By: Melvin & Annett
January 2019 - This was a wonderful experience. Working with Peter, and the Hanlon Team has been amazing. Today, we are happy to say that we have sold our house over asking and it couldn’t have been done without Peter’s due diligence and effort. We look forward to working with Peter and the Hanlon Team in the future. In both the selling and buying process the team has made the experience special for us. We would like to thank Elise, the stager, and Pamela for their efforts in making our home look like a dream house. Peter and the Hanlon Team made the entire process smooth and stress free. Thank you for everything!

December 2018 - My partner and I recently purchased our first home under the guidance of Sean and the Hanlon Real Estate Team. Sean always maintained a professional and personable demeanor. He was an effective communicator and we were always able to get a hold of him through text messages or phone calls, at any time of the day or night. Sean is knowledgeable about the home buying process and as first time home buyers we had a lot of questions. Sean was able to provide answers and clarification whenever we needed it. We felt comfortable going to him with anything. Sean had a great deal of knowledge about the type of home we wanted to purchase (e.g., condo/townhouse), and he took the time to go through all of the necessary paperwork. We felt comfortable and knew what we were signing. Sean uses current technology tools which makes the process of offering and buying property (which can be quite time consuming) a lot more convenient and efficient. We were able to sign documents through our phones and send them back to Sean while we were on our lunch breaks at work. Sean was always flexible around our schedule and used conference calls to ensure we were both kept in the loop and able to discuss things together. He provided gave us guidance and provided us with his professional opinion when we requested it, and his experience was essential throughout the negotiation process. He is trust worthy and we really felt as though he always had our best interest at heart. Sean and the Hanlon Team have excellent professional connections. They were able to connect us with a mortgage broker and lawyer who we could trust to help us complete the home buying process in a seamless manner. We are very pleased with the service Sean and The Hanlon Team provided us and we would highly recommend them to anyone in need of a real estate agent team.
November 2018 - Thank you to the Hanlon Team and Trina for all of your hard work in selling my property. You exceeded my expectations and all together it was a very stress free experience. I would highly recommend the Hanlon Team to any of my friends and family looking to buy or sell. I wish the team continued success!
By: Bill and Norma
November 2018 - We just wanted to say thank you to Andrew and the Hanlon Team for helping us sell our current home! This afforded us the opportunity to move into our new house which is going to help us to retire. We are extremely pleased with all the encouragement and support that we received during this journey. We are very excited for the next stage of our life and we really want to say thank you to the whole team for their help. We have known Shirley and Stephen for many, many years and they have always been so kind and accepting of all of our concerns. We really want to extend our sincere thanks for this journey!
November 2018 - I have had the pleasure of knowing the Hanlons for 25 years; a friendship that grew out of babies, hockey and real estate! Over the years the Hanlons helped our family sell a starter home, buy a bigger home and sell the in-laws home after the passing of both parents. Most recently, we reached out to the Hanlons again to sell my aging dads condo. This time we enlisted Trina as our agent and she was amazing! Her expertise and patience were exactly what my 89 year old dad needed! Trina was very respectful to my Dad's feeling and needs throughout the process and made the whole experience very easy for us! All we had to do was pack up the condo and then she and the team took care of everything else! I would highly recommend Trina and the Hanlon Team to anyone!
October 2018 - I recently purchased a property with Peter from The Hanlon Team. Thank you for the great service. I thought the experience would be stressful, but it has been an absolute pleasure to work with him. I will continue my relationship with Peter and The Hanlon Team and use their services to buy other properties in the future. I would recommend Peter to my friends and family that are looking to purchase a home. Thank you very much, it has been a pleasure!
By: Devin & Tanya
September 2018 - Working with Sean and the The Hanlon Real Estate Team was an absolute pleasure. As first time home buyers, Tanya and I needed a realtor that we could trust and count on to answer our endless amount of questions. Sean went above and beyond to ensure that we were comfortable with every decision and he was available at all hours of the day/night. Most importantly, he always approached our home search journey with a positive, professional, and eager attitude. The home buying process can be overwhelming at times, but with Sean's support the process was simple. We would highly recommend Sean and The Hanlon Team to anyone, especially first time home buyers. His wealth of knowledge and experience left us with a big smile on our faces and a place we are delighted to call home. THANK YOU SEAN!
By: Landon M
September 2018 - Being a first time home buyer, buying a house can be a daunting task. But Sean made our lives sooooo much easier! He was always available to promptly reply to all our questions, and was able to book showings with as little as a days notice. Sean's positive attitude was always present, and helped us keep our spirits up as we searched for the perfect home. Overall I'm incredibly happy with everything, and I would highly recommend working with the Hanlon team!

From setting up the sign, to the final paperwork, the team showed great professionalism when dealing with us in every aspect! Thank you to Pamela & Chrystallina as well for getting everything done from behind the scenes! We would highly recommend The Hanlon Team to our friends and family!
By: David & Janet
June 2018 - My wife and I have lived in the area for 40 years, and we have been in our present home for 28 years. The process of selling our home has changed in that time. Our real estate agent, Trina Earle and The Hanlon Team provided the service and support we had hoped for! Janet and I would like to thank Trina and all the members of The Hanlon Team for a successful conclusion. Thank You!
By: Cecilia & Tony

By: Paul Richardson
May 2018 - The overwhelming task of selling our home was made so easy by Shirley and the entire Hanlon Team. All details, no matter how big or small, were covered by this friendly and extremely professional group. They had the answers to all of our questions. It's no wonder our home sold so quickly. We would highly recommend anyone thinking of selling or buying a home to contact the Hanlon Team as they will do a fantastic job for you from beginning to end.

March 2018 - We have had the pleasure of using The Hanlon Real Estate Team since 1994. We have worked with The Hanlon Team in the past. This time we had a very specific need in the house we were looking for and Sean helped us find exactly what we needed! It was quite fun going around and looking for houses with Sean. He was very professional and highly knowledgeable. Shirley handled the sale of our home and once again what a great experience we had. Talking to Shirley is like talking to one of my family members. Shirley has a wealth of experience and knowledge that she uses to make sure that the experience is as painless as possible. We would highly recommend The Hanlon Team!

December 2017 - In what is one of the fastest moving markets where rentals would be snatched up almost immediately, Sean and the Hanlon Team was able to navigate the market and help us find one of the rarest commodities: a three bedroom condo within walking distance of the financial district. Time and again, there would a deal-breaker throughout our search. At times it was price, others it would be location or amenities. Sean made sure we got them all and more! Sean went above and beyond. He made sure we were one of the first people to see a showing and filtered through the one that would not be a good fit. Sean not only helped us find this gem, he also lent a steady hand till we got our keys and were fully moved in. I would recommend him to anyone who’s looking to find a home. You won’t be disappointed!
By: Silvi Stermasi

He also did an excellent job at negotiating the best price for me. Overall, I was extremely pleased with the outcome of the transaction and my experience with the team. I would not hesitate to recommend Sean or the Hanlon Team to anyone.
By: Mary Ellen
December 2017 - When I needed a realtor, a friend suggested that I call the Hanlon Team, and now that they have handled my condo sale. I would highly recommend them to my friends as outstanding realtors. Through the process of preparing, listing, and selling my condo, their experience was evident and their advice was excellent. The Hanlon Team took care of absolutely every detail for me. They were able to present me with an over-asking offer in a very short time. I am most grateful to their team for making this such a positive experience for me.
By: Donna & Jim
December 2017 - We cannot thank the Hanlon Team enough for everything they did during the process of selling our home. They knew we were not sure if we should ‘sell now’ or ‘wait until the spring’ and they invited us to a seminar that they were hosting about the new mortgage stress tests and how that might affect our decision. They took time to discuss the neighbourhood market and helped us to come up with a price that we were comfortable with. They have the most amazing team that helps make the journey an easy one. Their support, consideration and understanding was more than we could have ever asked for.
By: Henny & Mary
August 2017 - Not long ago, the Hanlon Team organized a Neighbourhood Garage Sale in our area. We participated in the event and The Hanlon Team did a great job of promoting as we had tons of people come out. At the garage sale we met Sean Hanlon, a sale representative with The Hanlon Team. We started chatting and we mentioned that we may be planing on selling the house. He was such a pleasant person to talk to and a very good listener and not overbearing or pushy. To make the story short, we decided to go with Sean to represent us in selling our home. Now that we look back, we could not have been happier about that decision. Sean and his team organized everything so well and accommodated us in so many ways, so that we went through the process without any stress. The house went on the market and after only 5 days, we were able to look outside and see a SOLD sign! If you decide to make the big step to sell your house, we can 100% recommend Sean and The Hanlon Team without hesitation!
More than 20 years ago, Stephen helped me sell my townhouse in a difficult market. He also found the house I have called home ever since and helped me get it for a great price. Over the years I have called on Stephen and Shirley for real estate advice and they have always been friendly, responsive and very professional. When it recently came time to sell, The Hanlon Team was my obvious choice. Shirley did an excellent job of guiding me through the process and their support staff did a wonderful job of getting my house ready to list. Best of all, the team was fantastic at negotiating for me and got me the absolute top dollar for my home.
By: Pat and Brian
April 2017 - Many thanks to the Hanlon Team for taking us through the downsizing process. We having been looking at houses for a couple of years, but thanks to Sean's keen research skills, he found us the perfect bungalow! Within ten days we had purchased our new home and sold our current home. What an amazing team, they worked so hard to ease the strain during this very stressful time. Every detail was dealt with so professionally. In the current frenzied real estate market we managed to buy a our new house without a bidding war and sell our house over the asking price! A very special thank you to Shirley, Sean, Elise and the Team for always going the extra mile on our behalf. We would highly recommend The Hanlon Team to our family and friends.
By: Rafi & Hina
March 2017 - Our experience with entire team has been really wonderful. They are the best, especially in the area of Mississauga. Sean has orchestrated our buying and selling extremely well with complete professionalism. We were very lucky to choose them and consider the whole team as part of our family. They took care of our needs both in buying and selling as you will do it for yourself. I would highly recommend the Hanlon Team to our family and friends for their buying and selling needs.
By: Lisa & Asif
March 2017 - I would like to start by saying that regardless of how good or bad a product or service is for me, I NEVER write reviews. In fact, this will be my first which in itself says a lot about our experience with Sean and his team. Prior to meeting Sean, we had a bad experience with another realtor and were cautious in working with someone else but Sean is professional, hardworking, prompt, supportive and is super positive and optimistic, as is his team. At no point did we feel pressured into doing anything we weren’t comfortable with or that Sean wasn’t looking out for our best interests. Now, I’m not going to say the process of buying and selling did not come without its stresses but the Hanlon Team really made it a positive experience for us regardless. If there was anything that they could have done to make the process easier, they did. We would 100% recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell.
By: Anton & Jane
Feb 2017- Can't say enough good things about Sean and Shirley. The whole Hanlon team are super to work with. Things went very smoothly and you could tell they were working hard to get our house sold for top dollar! Thanks a bunch for everything you guys did!
By: Tanya & Bryan Hudspeth
March 2017 -From the first moment that I met Sean, I knew that I wanted to deal with The Hanlon Team. Although we were not yet ready to sell, Sean followed up with me when we were ready. His friendly and pragmatic approach was greatly appreciated. Once we had decided, I knew both Sean and Shirley were the best real estate team we could ask for in this current market. Throughout the process, everyone was friendly, courteous and understanding of our needs. They promised us “Top Dollar” and we got that plus much more. Sean and Shirley were great partners and we cannot thank them enough for the work they have done. Their expertise and marketing was Top Class and at no point did we doubt them or their plan for selling our house. Thank you very much!
By: Bill and Eleanor W
March 2017 -When we decided to sell our home after 34 years, The Hanlon Team came highly recommended by friends. It was the Best Decision we ever made. Shirley and Sean helped us through every step of the selling process. No matter how small of a detail they helped, answered and guided us through. They looked after us with an amazing team of professionals and office staff. I never knew how great my home could look after Elyse the stagger, Todd the painter and Gary the carpet guy came and did their thing. So professional but yet everyone from the beginning to the end made you feel like a member of their family. Their professionalism, nonstop amazing marketing and social media advertising, hard work and regular up to date progress was shown when we got top dollar for our home making the next step to retirement for us that much closer. Thanks to Pamela who helped us find a rental to hang our hat till we retire. Pamela you have gone out of your way and busy schedule to assure we are happy and the move will be smooth as silk. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Hanlon Team. When the time comes for you to get in the real estate market whether selling or buying, Bill and I would highly recommend calling Shirley, Sean, Pamela or anyone on their team. You will be very happy you did. They truly make this big, emotional event in your life a smooth transition. Thank you Shirley, Sean, Pamela and the Hanlon team. We are forever grateful.

March 2017 - We sold our first home through Steve and Shirley and had another great experience buying our dream home, that we still live in. It was easy to know who to get advice from when we helped our aunt sell her home after she moved into an assisted living facility. Our aunt already had someone interested whom she sold the home to privately, but Shirley and Trina went out of their way to give us great insight, information and advice to make sure she got the best outcome possible! Thank you again for sharing your expertise in assisting the process!

February 2017 - I can’t say enough about The Hanlon Team. I am writing this on behalf of my mother who has decided to downsize. Right from the first meeting in my Mom’s kitchen, I knew we were in good hands. They took the time to thoroughly explain everything to us and most importantly, listen to my mom's needs. We knew it was a good fit! The Hanlon team was so organized, and my mom didn’t have to do a thing. The Hanlon team are true professionals who sets out to do what is best for their clients. Watching Shirley during the offer presentations was another great experience….she negotiates with a no-nonsense approach and was able to get top dollar for my moms place. We were lucky enough to meet the future owners of her existing house and we couldn’t have picked a better family if we hand-picked them ourselves! I am recommending The Hanlon Team to anyone looking to buy or sell. We are not ready to sell our place, but when we do, I know who we will call without any hesitation! They feel like family to us now. A special thanks to Shirley, Trina, Pamela, and Sean (her adopted grandson) for all your hard work. Thanks to you we got the best possible offer for Mom’s house and it sold in less than a week! Your dedication and professionalism were obvious throughout the entire process.

January 2017 - Much thanks to Shirley and the Hanlon team. True professionals who understand the market and offer the best advice for a perfect outcome! With something new on the news every night about the market, you need the expertise of a an experienced team. That's why you get with the Hanlon Team. Shirley is an excellent negotiator and got us top dollar for our home. We will refer our friends and family to Shirley and her fabulous team. Thanks again, and well done!

December 2016 - The Hanlon Team was extremely professional. They provided all the necessary resources for staging, marketing, and selling of our home in an expeditious and well-thought out manner. They are a one-stop shop for preparing and selling your home. We sold much faster than expected. Shirley was extremely pragmatic and the work that she, Sean, and the whole team did enabled our home to be shown far more quickly than we would have been able to do on our own. We are grateful for the work that they did on our behalf. I would highly recommend the Hanlon Team to anyone thinking of selling their house. They know their business extremely well and provided excellent customer service. We wish we had considered and chosen Shirley, Sean, and the Hanlon Team sooner.

Professional, caring and willing to go the extra mile to help get the right home right for you. We had very tight timelines to list and close. They supported us all the way and help to make everything work out. We couldn't have done it with out the Hanlon Team!! And that is no an exaggeration.

One can sum up our experience with the entire Hanlon team in one phrase: “Complete professionals from beginning to end”. Sean, Shirley and Pam’s focus on detail, knowledge of the finer aspects of selling a home and their intimate knowledge of the neighbourhood proved to be everything one would desire and in fact expect from a Real Estate Team. They took the initiative to relieve us of many arduous tasks usually required by the homeowner during the selling process, thus reducing our stress levels. Access by the team to reputable local contractors, inspectors, etc. also facilitated a fast sale. Sean took the lead in first reviewing a comprehensive marketing strategy with us both, thus starting the selling process. He was expedient in planning and facilitating a slick web/mobile marketing strategy. Immediate development and execution displayed our house over all appropriate social media platforms – this exposure resulted in a significant number of web views, a corresponding high number of showings and ultimately resulting in various offers for consideration. Shirley’s no-nonsense approach to negotiation was a bonus – experience in spades came through clearly: she exudes realism, knowledge of the industry, confidence and emotional control all the while conveying to us a very calming attitude. The sold sign was up in no time at all. For those considering either selling or buying, engaging the Hanlon team is an easy choice to make. Being long-time residents of Erin Mills, their knowledge of the complex real estate industry, local housing market and amenities in the area will augur well for you. I know it did for us. We couldn’t have been more pleased.

We first met Shirley Hanlon about 15 years ago and since then have come to know her not only as a friend, but as the ‘go-to’ realtor in the Pheasant Run area of Erin Mills, Mississauga. So, when we decided it was time to downsize and sell our family home of 10 years, we knew exactly who to call. Shirley and the Hanlon Team made the whole experience so easy for us by providing a complete package that just took all the stress away. They looked after every detail including; preparation of the house, staging the interior, preparing a beautiful brochure with professional photographs, an online video, plus promotion via social media and managing viewings for potential buyers. We really didn’t have to do anything. A special thanks to Shirley, Trina, Pamela, and Sean for all your hard work. Thanks to you we got the best possible offer for our house that even exceeded the asking price and it sold in less than a week! Your dedication and professionalism were evident throughout the entire process. It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with the Hanlon Team and we would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in this area.

Stephen and Shirley have been handling real estate transactions for my wife and me, my sister, and my mother and father for at least 20 years. Whether it was finding a bigger home in which to raise our family after a few years in a starter home, or finding an investment property; whether it was finding a condo for my parents, who were downsizing some 15 years ago, or helping my sister find suitable renters for her investment property in Mississauga--we've always been able to count on the Hanlons. They give us straight talk about the market, provide advice about our current situation and point us in the right direction when we need help from a third party (e.g. a lawyer or more recently, a real estate agent in another city where we have an investment property, etc). We ALL feel the same way and we've never had a single regret working with them. Complete trust is not something my family and I give lightly. The Hanlons have it BECAUSE they deserve it. I can't recommend them enough.

From the purchase of my home, to the sale of it, I could not have been surrounded by a better group of people. The Hanlon Group is always professional with a side of true commitment for the very best for their clients. Simply amazing caring from beginning to end.

We would like to thank Shirley and the The Hanlon Team for selling our home. We have been in our home for 38 years, raised a wonderful family and decided that it was time to downsize for our retirement. This has been a very emotional time for us and we want to say how wonderful and compassionate everyone was in helping us through the transition. By the time our home was sold everyone felt like family. Their expertise and professionalism was demonstrated from the initial meeting through to the offer presentation and negotiations. When listing time arrived they staged our home and effectively promoted our property. The end result was a successful offer and we sold above listing price! We will be recommending The Hanlon Team to all our family and friends wishing to sell their home. Job well done! Much appreciated
Shirley Hanlon....this is not my first time using you as my rep so I'm well aware of how professional and on top of things you are. I think what impressed me the most this time was being with you on the negotiations side of it and witnessing your brilliance. When handling the sale of my family home I gave up complete trust in the Hanlon Group and you once again came through. Thank you team for making a very stressful situation much less stressful. I would recommend you to everyone!! You my friend ROCK!

We appreciate all your help with the quick sale of our home. Downsizing is some thing we were not looking forward to, but you all made the transition more comfortable than we could have ever imagined with all your valuable tips and advice. Sold within a week for 105% of the asking price! The Hanlon Team is absolutely amazing; we cannot praise and thank them enough. Their caring, kindness and support is remarkable as this is a very stressful time in your life and they take that stress away. They are very knowledgeable about the market, explain everything to you and put you right at ease, from the moment you contact them. After that it just keeps getting better and better with all of their guidance and direction. Thank you so much, Shirley, Pamela and Trina

My husband and I have bought and sold many houses over the years. Other than one disastrous sell, most transactions have been okay – just that – okay. However, our most recent experience with the Hanlon Team was absolutely fabulous!! Who ever thought selling a house could be an enjoyable process? From our very first meeting to the actual sell, we were supported in every way possible. We were made to feel confident and at ease throughout each stage of the process. AND we got 4% above our asking price!! Thank you Hanlon Team!

We were impressed with the Hanlon team approach to using social media to generate buyers for our home. The Hanlon team attention to detail regarding our home and neighborhood combined with innovative tools to market our home got us the offers we wanted to sell our home quickly!

We would like to thank The Hanlon Team for their dedication and professionalism. They were always there for us and made sure everything was taken care of. We really appreciate all your hard work!

Dear Shirley & Steve, thank you both so much for all of your time and talent through this process of selling our house and buying our new home. We are so pleased with the results! We really appreciate your guidance, your patience and all of your hard work. It was a pleasure working with you again. This whole process was more than just a move for us. You have helped us to heal after our loss and to look forward to a fresh start and a brighter future. Thank you for everything!

Hello Stephen and Shirley, we were so fortunate to have engaged you to represent us in the recent sale of our home. We have had many moves over the past 30 years but have never experienced the professionalism as well as the caring manner with which you dealt with us during the whole process. In the span of one week we had so many visits from prospective buyers and we were very impressed with the appointment process which went off without a hitch - kudos to your office staff! Not to forget the excellent input provided by your stager and building inspector as well as the impressive work of the videographer. What a team! When we visited your website we realized that you had many, many properties listed in your portfolio, yet we felt that you were always present to us, working for us as though we were your only client. Our rating? Awesome! Sincere thanks and our best wishes to you both!
I wanted to take a moment to say thank you! It was time for me to sell and after careful consideration I chose The Hanlon Team to list my townhome. I had heard good things from friends in the complex who had used them in the past. From the moment we spoke on the phone to the sold sign going up I felt that they handled all aspects with confidence and ease. The ink was barely dry on the listing agreement and the marketing efforts had already begun. Proactively looking for a buyer resulted in an offer before we even went on the MLS. I was able to obtain top dollar in a very short period of time. The prep work from the home inspector and stager helped immensely. The after sale service and follow up has been excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend The Hanlon Team to family and friends. Thanks for exceeding my expectations!

Thank you very much to The Hanlon Real Estate Team for supporting the Bread and Honey Race. I am very excited about the new water bottles this year. Can't wait to see them.
Dear Shirley & Stephen I would like to express my sincere thanks for the great job you did on selling my home and getting me this great condo that I know I'll be very happy in. Also for the kindness you have shown me from day one. Above all, I don't feel like a client, but as someone who has formed a friendship for life. Thanks again, see you soon!
Dear Steve & Shirley, I just wanted to say thank you for everything you did for me! For the tremendous support you gave during a very stressful time, and for your kindness, warmth and civility always! It is greatly valued and appreciated. I'm glad to have been led to you and to have had the good sense to sign on with you. Wishing you continued happiness and good fortune, and I hope we will stay in touch.
By: Bill & Norma
Shirley, I want to express my sincere thanks for all that you did for Bill and I. Your knowledge and expertise in the Real Estate field and your patience really helped us make a very important decision. What we really appreciate was that you were never pushy with us. I got the sense that you truly wanted Bill & I to make the right decision for us. Thank you. I hope our paths will cross again in the future.

Thank you for everything that you did on the sale of our townhouse. I didn't realize that so much goes on behind the scenes.

A great big thanks for all your patience and expertise in finding us our new home. How many did we look at; but in the end we did find the perfect one! You guidance and direction and implementation of your marketing plan ensured that we got top dollar for our home. Handling all the details took a lot of the worry and stress out of the process. Thank you!

Thanks again and we look forward to referring you to family friends.
Hi, just a note to say thanks for all you have done for us throughout this process. As first time buyers, we had a lot of unanswered questions regarding the purchase of our home. Thank you for providing the answers to many of these questions and giving us informed advice on the homes that we visited!
