Thank you for taking your time.
Dear Costa,
It was a great pleasure to meet with you the other day and I appreciate you taking the time to speak with me.

Our recent experience with your firm, specifically Buffy and Dennis Ellis couldn't have gone better. My brothers found them to be not only professional but personable as well. They handled the sale of my father's home with efficiency, respect and sensitivity. Expectations were well handled and we were kept informed at every step along the path of the listing and subsequent sale.

I know that when people are referred, you tend to put your own reputation out there as the results can reflect on you. I understand completely why you referred Buffy and Dennis to us.

Thank you for your assistance with our situation and please pass along our sincerest thanks to Buffy and Dennis. I will be sure to refer your firm and specifically this dynamic couple in the future.

Buffy's level of professionalism is second to none. She has excellent attention to detail, a quick response time and a broad knowledge base. She negotiates with ease and is quick to find amicable solutions for all parties involved. In my experience what sets Buffy apart from other realtors that I have utilized is her heart! Buffy treats clients like they are her family - she doesn't set out to just close a sale. She works/counsels her clients to ensure that not only is the right decision made for your family but also that it's in the right time. Buffy cares! I'd highly recommend her services.

This summer we decided to sell our two- storey home in Byron and Buffy & Dennis Ellis with Street City Realty were involved with the sale of our home and also helped us purchase another one floor home.
We were extremely pleased with everything they did from start to finish. They were very efficient, organized, prompt, and very professional in their approach. I would definitely recommend Buffy & Dennis to anyone considering listing their home. I know will not be disappointed.

Are you thinking about that dream home you would like to buy, but not sure how to go about it or where to even begin? What came to my mind when I thought of an agent and

Is Where the Heart Is ???
As an expat and first time home buyer, I had little understanding and many unanswered questions. Fortunately, I was able to find the answers and they also lie very near to you too. Buffy Ellis can slay all your fears and anxieties away. Dennis Ellis will walk the extra mile (literally) to ensure the key to your perfect home is within reach. After returning to London, I found the perfect area to live in; however, no homes were even on the market at the time. This team went beyond my own expectations and found a seller. Today, this gem is now mine and it is all thanks to their hard work and effort.
I had the pleasure of meeting this lovely pair in 2013 while viewing a model home. From that moment on, I knew BUFFY and DENNIS would be the agents to help me achieve my success at home ownership. For two years I exchanged emails with constant questions and concerns. Throughout that period of time, I received punctual and timely responses filled with loads of sincerity, wisdom, advice and care.
The beauty for me was that as a client I felt I was being represented based on what was best for me. Far too often after receiving daily updated listings, I would send a short email saying, “this is the place for me, I want to go ahead and buy it?” For two years, Buffy and Dennis only thought about what was best for me and the steps I need to take. For them it simply was not about making a quick sale or profit. They made it clear they were there for me and willing to invest their time for as long as it needed to take.
In August 2015 I was excited and happy to receive the keys to the dream home that best spoke to my heart. My opportunity and success at achieving a purchase came as a result of having two of the best real estate agents in London work hard for me. You too can have the same opportunity and experience. Thank you BUFFY and DENNIS! Both of you provided a positive, wonderful, fun-filled home buying adventure. I highly recommend you to anyone I know for their home buying needs.

After I had an unfortunate experience with another agent, it was suggested that Buffy and Dennis would be a good fit for me, and they certainly were. They were:
- professional
- energetic
- proactive
- enthusiastic
- willing to do anything to help with the sale.

I would recommend Buffy and Dennis to anyone who is hoping to sell their property. They suggested that I stage the property, and brought in an excellent Stager who worked above and beyond to make the condo attractive. Within 3 weeks of listing with them, the condo was sold.

We had our house on the market for three months with a different realtor with no good result or offers and decided to give Buffy and Dennis an opportunity to market our home. It was the wisest decision we could have made. They gave us expert advice on staging and marketing and marketed our home with a professional collection of pictures. They placed the house in all the right spots to get noticed and what can we say, 3 OFFERS IN 8 DAYS!! That is the kind of result that only comes from dedication to selling and knowledge of the real estate market and process. After the sale their follow through making sure we were satisfied at every stage of the selling process was above and beyond. Thank you Buffy and Dennis for making what could be a very stressful time into an enjoyable experience. We will and have already happily suggested you guys to friends, neighbors and family. Thank you so much for all you have done.

I just wanted to take the opportunity in thanking Buffy for her fabulous job. Anyone who is looking for a professional, reliable agent in selling or buying a home should really consider working with Buffy. I resently purchased a home through her and I couldn't be more satisfied. Buffy has gone above and beyond In making me feel comfortable and secure with my decision.
When I purchased my home I was on the fence about moving. Wasn't sure if this was something I had really wanted to do as I've only been in my home for a couple of years. Buffy has never pressured me into any decision. To the point where she would call to see how I was feeling about it all, and to do what was best for me. Since the purchase of the new home, Buffy has since then helped me out by dropping off boxes and even watching my dogs when I was unable to when selling my home. I am truly grateful to have met her and have her as my agent. Without meeting her and her level of expertise I would have never of moved, and would never have had this beautiful home I have now. Thank you so much for everything Buffy and for anyone looking for an agent I recommend her 100%

Just wanted to send a quick hello to say thank you for everything you helped Brent and I with. You were such an amazing realtor, professional and easy to come to with any question. We really appreciated all that you did for us. We will totally be recommending you to any of our friends/family who are buying/selling homes in the future.
Danielle & Brent
“I was totally satisfied and comfortable working with Buffy. She handled all my concerns and questions with ease. My move was a positive and stress free. I recommend Buffy to everyone!”
Julie Clayton
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank Buffy Tavares-Ellis for all her help and guidance during the sale of our house and the purchase of our new home. Buffy worked extremely hard in an attempt to find the perfect home in the perfect area for the perfect price. During this process we experienced many ups and downs. We had put in conditional offers on two separate occasions for homes that Buffy had located only to be forced by another buyer to either firm up on the home or walk away. We weren’t prepared to chance owning two homes so we walked away from these homes. Buffy stayed strong and confident assuring us that she could again find the right home for us.
Buffy was confident that she could again find us that dream home. Buffy called us a couple of days later and indicated she had located another perfect home. We fell in love with the house and again put a conditional offer in on this home. By this time we had listed our house and were in the process of commencing with open houses. Buffy again assured us that this Offer would work out and to stay positive.
Our house sold on the first open house and we were able to firm up on our new home. We have recently taken possession of our home and we couldn’t be happier. We feel that we wouldn’t have had the success in selling our home and being able to buy the “HOUSE OF OUR DREAMS” if it hadn’t been for the tremendous professionalism and dedication shown from our friend and REALTOR, Buffy Tavares-Ellis.
So, if you are looking for someone who you can count on and “TRUST” in the sale or purchase of your dream home please call Buffy.
We are extremely satisfied with our dealing with Buffy.”
Scott & Joanne Hessel
“Both my husband and I have purchased many houses over the years as we have moved to various cities in Ontario and the Caribbean. Along the way we have met many different real estate agents. Recently we had a newly renovated house to sell in London and were ready to put it on the market last summer. A friend recommended Buffy very highly as she had sold their home and they were very happy with their selling price and found the new house of their dreams. We met with Buffy and were very impressed with her knowledge, professionalism and energy. She sold our home in 3 weeks and couldn’t have been more supportive through the process. Buffy brought such a breath of fresh air to selling and is up to date with all of the marketing tools available. She created an amazing feature sheet for us, kept us informed every step of the way and got us an amazing selling price on our home. We would highly recommend Buffy to anyone who is thinking of selling their home.”
Dennis and Julia Agnew
“In performing the sale of my parents home in the Fall of 2011, I entrusted the help and guidance of Buffy Tavares-Ellis. From the initial introductory meeting to the completion of SALE, Buffy was extremely professional and courteous. She provided exceptional advice into staging the home in preparation for viewing by prospective buyers and agents and also provided daily feedback from the potential purchasers and agents once the viewing had commenced. We received an exceptional price and SOLD THE HOUSE IN 5 DAYS! I have nothing but praise for the exceptional assistance we received from Buffy during this house sale. She provided the expert advice and guidance we needed in an extremely friendly, courteous and professional fashion. I would absolutely recommend Buffy to any friends or colleagues in need of a Real Estate Agent.”
Chris Lierman P.Eng. Spriet Associates Architects and Consulting Engineers
“Over the past thirty years and across two provinces in Canada, I have dealt with in total about eight or nine realtors and Buffy Ellis in London, Ontario, ‘rose’ above them all. I would give her a twelve on a scale of ten. I was in town for only a week and had to look for and decide on a condominium. As I was searching the internet, Buffy’s picture came up and immediately, I decided this was the face that I could trust. I called her up with the stringent deadline and criteria and immediately she rose to the challenges and had taken charge in meeting my needs. She is knowledgeable, fair, ethical, sensitive to others’ needs, hard working and bends over backwards for out of town clients. I cannot say enough about her. I am just so happy that I have found her as my realtor.”
E. K. Tse August 2011
“We loved Buffy’s approach on all things: her market analysis of our home, her consulting on how to best stage our home for maximum positive impact on buyers, her responsiveness and her steadfast dedication to meeting our needs and timelines. She remained flexible as our conditions changed and we always felt that she had our best interests at heart. Our experience with Buffy Ellis’ services was nothing short of excellent! “

“October 28, 2009 As a past customer of Buffy Tavares-Ellis (in her role as Sales rep) we would like to compliment your choice in dealing with her…she is very knowledgeable, personable and does her utmost to accommodate your needs.
She was a deciding factor in our choice of builders in London, her commitment and passion are only two of her professional qualities that kept us going back.
We are confident that your experience in your association with Buffy will be a satisfying one.“
Pat & Rita Holland London, ON Jan 13-11
“After seeing a few listings this winter I met Buffy Tavares- Ellis at an open house. From the start she was polite and professional and was willing to show me condos near my place of employment. One of the condos we saw hit all the right buttons , and being a first time home buyer, she walked me through all the procedures with ease. I was thoroughly impressed with Buffy in finding my first home. Bravo Buffy.”
Sincerely Paul K.Green
“We were very fortunate to have Buffy Tavares-Ellis represent us in the transaction of the purchase of our home in Westmount recently. We found her to be very resourceful and efficient. Our transaction, including our search and purchase, was completed in less than a week. In addition, Buffy has a very pleasant and pleasing personality, she was very easy to work with, she applied no pressure on us, and in the end we were very pleased with her service. We would recommend her highly to anyone looking to buy or sell a home”
Dan and Margaret Costea
“About Buffy Tavares-Ellis; We decided to use Buffy as our Real State Agent after meeting her in a previous job and knowing she can speak our home language – Portuguese. Since the beginning of our search she showed a great dedication to help us find our home. The process did take longer than expected, and I have to say that this happened because we did changed our minds many times. Along the process Buffy kept the focus on finding a home that did fit our requirements with dedication and patience. After some time we finally found our house, I and thank Buffy for being a friend and helper during this search period.”
Daniel Ribeiro London, ON
I believe where Buffy is most valuable is not only her attention to her clients’ needs or to detail, but also her constant guidance, confidence and helpful nature. She understood that we were first time real estate investors and took the time to know what we were looking for in a property and tenant. She found us not one, but 2 properties that met our needs and 2 good tenants. She provided us with guidance every step of the way, and constantly communicated with us. We knew what was happening with the purchasing process and the leasing process at all times. She is a great communicator. Even when we were wavering on the lease amount, Buffy provided us with the background figures and of course her own assessment with the utmost confidence. We are happy investors and landlords and have Buffy to thank. Buffy continues to stay in touch and she is always ready to answer any questions and moreover, to guide us through any decisions we need to make regarding our properties. We look forward to working with Buffy in the near future.
Danny Carestia
We moved from Woodstock to London and needed a lot of guidance as to where we should look to live in the City. We met Buffy and Dennis at an open house and were immediately impressed with their knowledge of the City and their understanding of our expectations and needs.
When we made a purchase they could not have been more supportive in guiding us through the necessary requirements and after we took possession they went out of their way to ensure everything was acceptable to us. We have no hesitation in recommending this hard working couple for your respective home sale/purchase requirements.

Dear Prospective Home Owners:

It is with our highest and sincere regard to recommend Buffy Ellis as a Real Estate Agent for any individual or family searching for the ideal home. Buffy was instrumental in helping us find our “forever home” and went above and beyond; exceeding all expectations.

During the selling and purchasing process, Buffy was always there for us when needed. She always returned phone calls and emails on the same day, and was very flexible in accommodating our busy family schedule so that we could attend house listings. With Buffy’s meticulous attention to detail, diverse knowledge base and negotiating abilities, we were successful in attaining multiple offers and selling our house at above asking price in just a little over 24 hours!

Buffy is a true professional and was exemplary in assisting us with a challenge we had with our hot tub long after the closing date. I was very impressed by her dedication and commitment to ensuring our
needs were always met throughout the whole transition, from selling to buying.

We are pleased to recommend Buffy Ellis to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She is hands down the best in the business in our opinion and if we ever need to move again she will be our first choice in
Real Estate Agents. If you want to discuss our experience in more detail please feel free to contact either one of us.

Being first time home buyers, we were clueless and we're looking for an agent to provide us with some guidance. A friend who had just worked with Buffy and Dennis suggested we call them for a consult, as they had so much success working with them. We were so glad we reached out to Buffy and Dennis for their knowledgeable help and guidance with our first home purchase. From our first meeting to handing over the keys to our new house everything was so smooth and easy. I always heard buying a home was such a stressful time but Buffy and Dennis made sure that our experience was an easy and successful one. Much thanks to Buffy and Dennis with helping us find our perfect first home!

Buffy and Dennis are the best agents we have worked with in over 30 years of buying and selling houses. Professional, knowledgable, prompt, caring and understanding of each individual situation are just some of the adjectives I would use to describe them. They listen, they do not push you into a purchase or a sale. No matter how busy they are, they will always respond to phone calls or email in a timely manner.

If you want to work with great agents, whether buying or selling, first timers or experienced buyers/sellers, we give them our highest recommendation. Judi and Ed

What can we say...Buffy is the best agent we have worked with and would highly recommend her. We moved from Toronto to London and needed someone who knew the London market well and would be patient with answering all our questions.
Buffy is extremely patient, professional, knowledgeable and very customer focused. Buffy went above and beyond in her communication and made us feel comfortable throughout the entire purchasing process in a market that we knew very little about.

We have worked with a few agents in the past and what really sets Buffy apart from them is that she truly CARES about her clients - which is rare these days. She really took the time to understand our needs and made recommendations for us that helped land us our dream home.

Not only did we find a great agent here but we also made a great friend. Thank you Buffy for everything!

Thanks Buffy. You are very, very efficient. Monika and I have both commented on this aspect since we met you. We have certainly enjoyed and respected all your input relative to our New Condo purchase and we will definitely keep in touch. We would surely not hesitate to highly recommend you to anyone planning any real estate transactions should the opportunity come up.
Don Gascho and Monika Penner
“Being first time home buyers, we didn’t really know what a Realtor was going to do for us, or what was even involved when buying a home. Buffy was very helpful with answering all these questions and assisting us with our searching, even though we didn’t really know exactly what we were aiming for at first. Arranging viewings couldn’t have gone smoother – our visits were booked quickly and arranged so that we could see multiple houses in one shot – saving us lots of time in our busy lifestyle. Buffy never made us feel rushed, and never was pushy when it came to houses that we thought had more potential. Buying a house with Buffy was one of the easiest decisions we made during our first time home buying! Thanks again for all your help.”
Jason & Sylvia Dearing
“My husband and I were first time home buyers. Buffy was very patient
answering the numerous questions we had, and was always quick to
answer texts or emails. She was very thorough when going through
paperwork with us as we were unfamiliar with the process. She assisted
us in narrowing down our wants and needs in a house and made very
helpful suggestions as to what would be most beneficial to us in the
future. When viewing potential houses she gave us honest opinions
about the pros and cons of each rather than trying to talk us into a
house unsuited to us in order to make a sale. Buffy was a pleasure to
work with and I would highly recommend her services.”
Jennifer and Andrew Beaton
“We first met Buffy when she was working in the furniture industry. She was the friendliest and most helpful salesperson we had ever encountered. Not only did Buffy spend a great deal of time with us but she showed a genuine interest in helping to find the perfect furniture to fit our new home and our lifestyle.
When the time came for us to put our home on the market, there was no hesitation whatsoever to list with Buffy. Once again we were not disappointed with the quality of her service. Her winning personality and positive attitude along with her hard work resulted in our property being sold in eleven days.
We would not hesitate to recommend Buffy to any potential client. We are confident that she will show all her clients the same personalized service that we experienced.”
Linda & Dick Mills London, ON
“We had the pleasure of working with Buffy Ellis this past winter during the purchase of our first home. Buffy was highly recommended by a friend of ours and from the beginning we could see why. Buffy has a professional yet warm demeanor, which set us at ease as we navigated the sometimes intimidating world of real estate. Buffy was organized and detail oriented, yet always made the process fun at the same time. She took the time to explain the processes involved and showed genuine concern in assisting us in making the right decision for our needs. We would most certainly recommend Buffy’s services for purchasing or selling your home”
Kayla Gowdy London, ON
“When Michael and I first met Buffy, she immediately set us at ease with her friendly yet professional demeanour.
We knew she was the agent for us! Buffy was always prompt in returning calls and emails, as well as very accommodating to our hectic and scattered life. We feel honoured to have met such a unique individual. Since we have moved from the London area, should we ever move, Buffy will be a hard act to follow. We would highly recommend Buffy to anyone looking for a high standard realtor with a personal touch.”
Michael and Sherisse Turnbull Cambridge Ont.
“We were in somewhat of a hurry trying to find the right house to move into, and as soon as we sat down with Buffy we knew immediately that she was the right person for us to rely on.

During the next three to four weeks, we conducted our own searches online trying to narrow it down and Buffy was always in contact with one of us providing the details of listings. We always seemed to be on the same page with regards to the kind of house and property we were looking for.

Needless to say, we have now been in our home for 8 months and couldn’t be happier. We would recommend her to anyone. We want to say ‘thanks’ to our wonderful real estate agent and friend, Buffy Tavares-Ellis.”
Troy & Alaina October 28, 2009
“Proffessional, dedicated. efficient and kind are all words to describe Buffy Tavares-Ellis. However, we feel the most important characteristic Buffy possesses is her trustworthiness. Our lives changed last year in many ways and with Buffy’s help, we made the huge move- transition in as stress-free a way as possible. We highly recommend Buffy to prospective clients and would not hesitate to engage her expertise in the future.”
Marylyn and Bob Churchill London, ON Jan 13-11
“We feel incredibly lucky to have worked with Buffy. We felt secure in purchasing our first home with her assistance – her knowledge and experience made the whole process so much easier and enjoyable. Beyond that, working with Buffy was also great. She is very personable and we felt like she was invested in us and finding the perfect home. It was a great relief to navigate such an important purchase with the support and knowledge of a professional. We know we’re in good hands in all our home purchases.”
Kate Norton & Jamie Beswick 
London, ON
“As one of her clients, I’d like to say that Buffy is an outstanding real estate agent who brings her diverse expertise to the table and goes above and beyond to ensure her clients needs are met. You’d be hard pressed to find a more caring, knowledgeable, customer focused agent! “
