  • «Bonjour M. Lafrenière,
    La présente est pour vous remercier de la vente rapide de notre propriété à Repentigny. Nous ne regrettons en aucun cas d'avoir recours à vos services très professionnels. Vous avez su du début nous démontrer les points forts et faibles de notre demeure. Comme tout était clair en partant, nous n'avons pas eu de mauvaise surprise, sauf quelques lois qui ont changé avec le temps mais tout s'est fait dans l'ordre.
    Merci M. Martin Lafrenière pour votre bon travail, je vous souhaite beaucoup de succès dans l'avenir et nous n'hésiterons jamais à vous recommander.
    Sincères salutations»

    Mme Folco, M. Chartran, octobre 2016

  • «J'ai contacté Martin pour l'achat d'une propriété au moment où ma maison avait été vendue. Il m'a beaucoup aidé à faire le tri dans les nombreuses annonces qu'il y avait dans le marché en rafinnant graduellement les critères de sélection. Au début il s'est rendu compte que mes critères étaient plutôt larges mais il a été très patient et m'a fait visiter toutes les propriétés que je voulais voir. Jamais il n'a tenté d'influencer mes choix même s'ils me donnait des conseils ou son avis sur des questions précises que je lui posais. Lorsqu'on a finalement trouvé la propriété qui me convenait, il m'a accompagnée à toutes les étapes, que ce soit lors des inspections, lors de l'offre d'achat et des contre-offres et lors de passer chez le notaire. Cela m'a beaucoup rassurée. Tout au long du processus, il a gardé une attitude polie et souriante. Nous avons trouvé la bonne maison en peu de temps ce qui m'a permis d'éviter d'être obligée d'entreposer mes meubles. Je suis tout à fait satisfaite de ses services et le recommanderais sans hésiter.»

    Mme Sosa, Repentigny, mai 2016

  • «Bonsoir,
    Par la présente, j'aimerais remercier Martin Lafrenière, pour sa précieuse collaboration et son dévouement, dans notre projet de recherche de maison.
    Ce projet, qui à la base n'avait rien de concret pour nous, est devenu un projet réel avec l'aide de notre agent Martin, qui a su bien répondre à nos questions, bien nous rassurés dans les moments d'incertitudes, bien nous conseiller et faire preuve d'une grande patience.
    Tout au long de ces démarches Martin a toujours fait preuve d'une grande disponibilité, d'une bonne écoute.
    Nous avons beaucoup apprécié être inscrit aux nouveautés du jour, ce qui nous a permis de voir notre futur maison rapidement lorsqu'elle a été mise sur le marché.
    Notre maison a été mise rapidement en vente, et grâce aux photos, à la publicité faite par Remax, nous avons vendu notre maison en 1 mois seulement. Encore une fois, l'aide précieuse et conseil de Martin ont été appréciés.
    Que ce soit pour l'achat d'une maison, ou pour vendre, cela fait parti d'un grand processus et implique beaucoup de temps, énergies, émotions, stress. Nous sommes heureux d'avoir eu Martin à nos côtés pour franchir toutes les étapes.
    Nous nous apprêtons a entreprendre un nouveau départ dans notre vie et nous tenons à remercier sincèrement notre agent: Martin pour son beau travail!»

    R. Lajoie et Y. Morin

  • «Nous sommes hautement satisfaits du service professionnel et toujours très rapide obtenu par Martin Lafrenière. Car c'est après avoir passé 6 mois sur le marché (sans succès) que nous avons fait appel à lui pour la vente de notre condo. En seulement 1 mois, la vente était chose faite et notre famille pouvait enfin passer à une autre étape. Martin a agit en véritable porte-parole, et ce, aussi bien pour «nous les vendeurs» que «nous les acheteurs». Son côté réactif nous a aussi permis de trouver la maison souhaitée au moment souhaité.»

    V. Goyette et F. Gosselin

  • «C'est simple, rien de compliqué, toujours là quand tu en as besoin, très dévoué! J'ai maintenant deux maisons et quand l'heure sera venue, c'est le joyeux Martin qui va me les vendre!»

    Michel Lapointe

  • «On profite de ces petits mots pour te remercier pour ton excellent travail! Professionnel, déterminé, optimiste, chaleureux, voilà quelques qualités qui font de toi une personne unique et qui inspire confiance dès les premiers instants. Merci surtout pour ta grande patience.

De plus, on tient à remercier l'équipe complète de RE/MAX Des Mille-Îles, en particulier le bureau de Lachenaie. Bon succès à toi Martin Lafrenière.»
