Bill Brouwers & Deanna Ditner – South Bruce Buyers

We were very happy working with Tone. He was very knowledgeable and thorough with what to look for when buying. He helped us tremendously with time sensitive matters, and always available for questions. Thank you!

Sarah Ces – Brockton Seller

I knew long before I listed that I wanted Tracey and The Kirstine Group to handle the sale of my home.  When I contacted Tracey months prior to ask for help finding a home out of the area, she immediately put me in touch with a great realtor and checked in with me to see how the search was going.  When it finally came time to list my home I was very nervous because we were already a couple of weeks into this quarantine craziness.  Tracey handled it all in stride with a professional and caring approach that helped my children and I feel safe throughout the entire process.  Her dedication and advice paid off in no time and we ended up with multiple offers to choose from.  We are extremely happy with the entire process so far and can’t wait to begin our next chapter in our new home! 

Andrew & Anita Ball – Brockton Sellers

Taking a chance to try and sell your home during a Pandemic was a huge leap of faith. Add in 2 essential working parents on shift and 3 kids at home – makes things interesting to say the least. Jeremy was fantastic to work with. He was very accommodating to our family life and worked fast! Jeremy made sure we were always kept up to date and our questions were answered very quickly, any time of day. Jeremy and the Kirstine Group were able to advertise and find our buyer within days of listing! Selling our home so quickly has been a complete dream come true which has allowed our family to move onto the next chapter in this crazy life. We are forever grateful and would absolutely recommend Jeremy and the Kirstine Group! Professional, enthusiastic, and good at what they do! Thank you!

Shawn Kieffer &  Christina Emke-Kieffer – Hanover Sellers & Buyers

When Shawn and I decided to list our home it was a very difficult decision. This was our first home together and we have made many happy memories here. We worked hard fixing our home up and it was difficult to let go, but we decided it was time to move on and make new memories in a new home. We listed our house only a short time before the world fell into chaos, making it extremely stressful. The team at The Kirstine Group went above and beyond making this as smooth as possible under the current circumstances. Our health and safety was of upmost concern to them and they took all necessary steps to keep our family safe. We were all working in unchartered territory and they did everything they could to ensure a happy result even during this time. “Big thanks to the whole team for all they did. ”

Danielle Hilborn, Travis Thompson and Trevor Thompson – Tiverton Buyers

After having a hard time with the market in our area, we were sent a Facebook link from a friend to a great property that had just been listed. When we contacted The Kristine Group about the property, we received a response almost instantly. Christine was right on it and advised she was available for any questions we had, and asked us about setting up a time time to view the property at our convenience. Christine was very thorough with us, friendly, professional, confident and informative. She went above and beyond with us.

Thank you Christine and The Kristine Group, you made the experience of buying a home smoother then we thought and more enjoyable. If you or anyone you know is in the market to buy or sell a home, we highly recommend Christine Brandt and The Kristine Group. They take pride in what they do and to them, you are more then just a another sale, you are a valued client.

Zach Girdler – Cargill Buyer

Jeremy helped me search for and find my first home! He was professional, upfront, and gave me his honest opinion when I needed it. I would highly recommend Jeremy if you are in the market to buy or sell a home. You won’t regret it! Thank you Jeremy!

Kerri Messerschmidt & Greg Leliever – Walkerton buyers

As first time buyers, Christine was professional and answered all of our calls, texts and many questions immediately. The entire process of buying your first house is a bit overwhelming, but she helped, without hesitation, in any way that she could. She contacted us regularly to see how everything was going and she even went out of her way to wish Greg a happy birthday! Christine walked us through the entire process and kept us up to date with anything house related. We were even able to sign everything electronically due to distance. She was very helpful and we would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell! Thank you, Christine!

The Koller Family – Mildmay Sellers

Jeremy gets the job done! Jeremy made selling our home as stress free as possible. Jeremy was always available to answer our questions and was dedicated to selling our home quickly. We would recommend Jeremy 110% to our family and friends who are thinking of buying and/or selling.Jeremy had a no pressure- positive perspective that made this whole process enjoyable.

Thank you, Jeremy, for all your hard work selling our first home!

Troy, Sheena & Adaline Bohnert – Walkerton Sellers/ Hanover Buyers

Erin & John Mackey – Dankert Lake Seller

In a word: WOW! Tracey and Neil were absolutely fabulous to work with! From their comprehensive marketing plan and extensive knowledge of the market, to their impressive list of connections and genuine care, the Kirstine’s level of service blew us away. They drove traffic to our property and sold it for over asking in under a week! We would strongly recommend the Kirstine’s to anyone buying or selling a property. Call them first; you’ll be glad you did. Thank you Neil and Tracey for making the sale of our cottage so pleasant!

Tracey, you are exceptional! ❤️ I have already passed that on to so many friends! I could not have asked for a better agent in a mixed blessing time!

Working with the Kirstine group was a pleasure. It was a stressful time for me but they were right on top of my concerns. They could not have been more accommodating!
>> Even after I sold they helped me find a rental.
>> Their professionalism was evident in all they did! I would not hesitate to highly recommend them.

Katie & Zach MacKenzie – Hanover Buyers

As first time home buyers we were fortunate to have Tracey by our side. Tracey was so flexible while working with us over the Christmas season as well as when she was on vacation out of the country. She answered all of our questions and made buying our first home an exciting and stress-free process.


Kayla & Mathew Tuttle – Hanover Buyers

Huge shoutout to Jeremy and the rest of The Kirstine Group! Jeremy has been great through the entire process of selling one house and buying another all in one day! He was always available to answer questions and get back to us promptly. He made time for us and helped ensure this was a smooth, easy and fun experience for us! Jeremy really got to know us and what we were looking for, finding homes for us to go through and pointing out things we may not have noticed! Jeremy is definitely someone you want working with you as you move onto the next adventure of your life! 5 stars!


Rachel Schuett & Ryan Mercey – Hanover Buyers & Sellers

When we decided that we were ready to purchase a new home to better suit our growing family, we weren’t exactly sure what we wanted which must make it difficult for a realtor. Tone was very patient and helpful through the entire process, always quick to respond to our inquiries and set up viewings. Once he got a feel for our likes and dislikes, he was especially great at touching base regularly to ensure we hadn’t missed anything that came up that could possibly meet our search criteria. Through his dedication over the past 6 months, we finally found the one! Our current house was then sold quickly, and we are so excited to move into our forever home this fall. Thank you to Tone, and the entire Kirstine Group, for their knowledge, insight, and assistance; we would highly recommend them to those looking to buy or sell in this whirlwind market.


Clare and Nancy McGarvey – West Grey Buyers

Thank you Tone! We purchased a side split home March 2 from Tone Valeriote. From the time we started to view the home till the end of the deal we found Tone very easy to work with and very professional. He goes out of his way to help you. We found it to be a nice refreshing pleasure that he didn’t pressure us…just gave us the facts and info we required. We enjoyed our dealings with Tone and we would highly recommend him to anyone we know.
Thanks again Tone!

Megan and Blair with children Nathan, Callie and Violet – Walkerton Buyers

Jen & Jeremy Lueck – Chesley Sellers

Fun, knowledgeable, caring, patient and totally awesome! There are not enough stars to rate this amazing team of professionals! From the moment we met Tracey and Neil we knew we were going to be well taken care of. Tracey has been there for us every step of the way as we begin a new chapter in our lives including making sure we are in good hands as we relocate out of the area. We cannot thank them enough for their help and support through this amazing journey.


Mark & Lori Law – South Bruce Sellers

Neil, Tracey and co. are GREAT people to work with, professional, efficient and most of all caring for their clients! HIGHLY recommend them for your home selling and buying experience!


Vince Yenssen & Jenna Pratt – Arran-Elderslie Buyers

We started out only casually looking at properties with an interest in maybe buying someday and Tone never pressured us to be more than that. He worked with us every step until we found our new great home. Tone gave us great advice and always had our best interests in mind. He is the best and kindest realtor you will ever meet and is very knowledgeable. If you don’t believe us just ask our little Chloe as she’s Tone’s biggest fan. Thanks Tone for helping us find our perfect home!

Jeremy & Lila Druce – Lake Rosalind Buyers

We just bought our first home on the lake and can’t thank Tracey and Neil enough for all their help! We have been looking at properties on Lake Rosalind for a couple years since our friends moved there and we are so happy that the Kirstine’s were able to find our family a home. Tracey and Neil are always quick to answer our questions and respond to our emails, and were a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend the Kirstine’s and are looking forward to meeting our new neighbours on the lake!

Bob and Danielle Palsa – Hanover Sellers and Buyers

When our family needed to sell for a bigger house we were very unsure about what we were getting into. The Kirstine Group was there for our family and we couldn’t be happier with the purchase of our new home! We were very nervous and Tracey made the process a breeze. Between the countless texts after-hours and the never ending guidance, Tracey made the whole process stress free. I would HIGHLY recommend The Kirstine Group if you are looking to sell or buy. Their knowledge, honesty and attention to detail will make the process easy. We like to thank The Kirstine Group and Tracey for everything they have done for our family.

Nick and Rose Lawrence – Durham Sellers

Neil and Tracey were great to work with. We had such a positive experience selling our home. Tracey was very focused on details and was fun to work with. Both Neil and Tracey were very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. We felt like we had known them forever. We highly recommend The Kirstine Group. Wow our house sold in under a week!! Thank you Neil, Tracey and Christine for all your hard work. All the best to you!


Claire and Derek Wettlaufer – Walkerton Sellers & West Grey Buyers

My parents recommended Tracey and Neil Kirstine as agents to sell our first home. Within hours of emailing Neil, he called to set up an appointment to meet with us. They came with a plan and we listed right away. After 24 hours of listing exclusively online, through social media, we had four showings and an offer! Five days later we accepted an amazing offer and were on our way to finding our next home. Tracey and Neil were always quick to respond to texts and emails, set up showings within the hour and quickly found us a home that checked all the boxes. Throughout the process of selling and buying, Tracey and Neil always gave great advice and expertise. Selling our first home and buying our second was a piece of cake as Tracey and Neil took care of everything! We are so appreciative of all their hard work and dedication!


Rick and Deb Deschamps – Chatsworth Buyers

We would like to share our experience with anyone looking to find an awesome realtor with not only expertise but compassion and reliability. The Kirstine Group posted our now forever home on Facebook exclusively and that was our beginning. We viewed the home immediately. We put in an offer and from that moment our experience started…..our offer was accepted…many forms had to be filled out for our insurance etc over time….questions we did not have the answers to and The Kirstine Group, being Tracey, Neil and Donna, assisted in making sure documents and questions were properly answered and forwarded to all concerned. We never once felt too many questions were asked from us and always always felt confident. There was a long closing date agreed to by both parties and even during that time The Kirstine Group would check in with us to see if we needed ANYTHING. In our opinion, it doesn’t get any better than that.

Nicolaas Smit & Natalie Kitts – West Grey Buyers & Sellers

From countless emails back and forth, a number of formal visits, phone calls, and accommodating all his other clients, Tone made the selling of our home happen quick and easy. With having some renovations to complete, we were greatly appreciative of his time, commitment and enthusiasm in the whole process!

Not only did we sell our home with ‘The Kirstine Group’, we bought our dream property listed through his colleagues, Tracey & Neil, who made sure we had all necessary questions answered, making the purchase of a new home that much easier.

They are called ‘The Kirstine Group’ for a reason – although you have one agent you’re mainly working with, you also gain the strong support and assistance of the rest of the team, Tracey, Neil, and Christine! They truly do work as a great team to accommodate all of their clients.

Five stars to The Kirstine Group, we would have you as our first recommendation to anyone buying or selling their home!
Thank you so much Tone!


Stefan & Sheri Brandt- Walkerton Buyers

Thank you Tone for helping to make our long-distance moved to Walkerton as smooth as silk. Your sense of humor, and easy going but professional demeanour was appreciated – and encouraged – during this stressful time. You always answered our texts/emails/calls ASAP and followed up promptly with any concerns and questions we had. We felt very well taken care of and had every confidence that you were in our corner every step of the way. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone in need of an agent!


Carolyn Albright- Walkerton Buyer

Tone Valeriote of the Kirstine Group worked tirelessly with me, not just to find me a house, but a home. He’s very knowledgeable, informative, and always truthful. If you are ever looking to buy a home, or sell your home, I highly recommend Tone Valeriote of The Kirstine Group!

Ryan Wilhelm- Walkerton Buyer

I can’t thank Tone Valeriote nearly enough; it was an absolute pleasure working with him and the Kirstine Group. Tone always kept an open line of communication and ensured to work around my schedule. He made certain I was comfortable with every decision I had to make, making buying my house a very enjoyable experience. Tone is an all around great guy and I would recommend his services to anyone.
Thank you Tone, for going above and beyond.

Jay & Jen Kennedy- West Grey seller/buyer

We really enjoyed working with Tone. He was always great fun to house hunt with, and any time we had a question, it didn’t matter what time of day it was, he would do his best to find out the answer quickly. He devoted lots of time to us and always did his best to accommodate our schedules. Thanks for all your hard work!

Sarah and Wil Hurlburt- Hanover seller, Dunganon buyer

Bev Galbraith- Hanover Buyer, West Grey Seller

It has been a wild ride since I listed my property with The Kirstine Group. I contacted Tracey to show me a few houses in Hanover and because of her positive, upbeat personality I made a snap decision to list with her. The For Sale sign went up June 7th, late afternoon; less than 24 hours later I had my first showing, and they just kept coming. Tracey was a joy to work with, never any pressure, she offered valuable advice on how to best present my property. After each showing, within minutes, Tracey would update me on how it went. (Even when she was vacationing in New York.)Tracey goes “above and beyond” to make the process run smoothly. It is now July 26th…the SOLD sign is up. (Tracey deserves Sales Rep of the Year Award) Although most of my contact was with Tracey, I must add that Neil and Tone were also a pleasure to work with.
P.S. Neil & Tracey also found me the “perfect place” in Hanover to relocate.

Maria and Michael McMurtrie- Buyers- Mildmay

It would be difficult to find an easier path through a real estate transaction than working with Tracey Kirstine. Her thoughtful attention to details and the professionalism she exudes are exemplary. She manages real estate deals deftly, always charming, gracious, honest, and an absolute delight to work with. We truly can’t imagine anyone we’d rather work with. And really, why settle for less?


Maddie Hawkins-Doerr & Nic Dales- Buyers- Brockton

We would like to thank Tracey of The Kirstine Group for all of her hard work in helping us purchase our home! Her flexibility and attention to detail is second to none. Tracey made this entire process painless, and we look forward to working together in the future!

Rudi Spruit and Samantha Lynch- Buyers- Riversdale

As first time home buyers we were not really sure what to expect or how to go about certain things. It would be an understatement if we said Neil helped us through the process. Neil, from The Kirstine Group, literally walked us through the whole process and was there every step of the way. He found us exactly what we were looking for and offered his advice to us to help us make the big decisions. Two words: Too Easy. We would highly recommend using The Kirstine Group and in particular Neil for any home purchasing or selling you are doing. We would for sure use them again.

Heather & Shookie Helwig- Seller- Brant Township

We would like to thank Tracey from The Kirstine Group for the sale of our home! She was very caring and understanding throughout the selling process. Always making effort to work with our schedules and finding time to complete our sale! We couldn’t be more excited!!

Bev Dyck- Seller – Walkerton

The Kirstine Group presented themselves in a professional and knowledgeable manner. I had the pleasure of working with Tracey to sell my home. She was hard working, efficient, and kept me well informed, thus making this experience a positive one. Tracey, thank you for selling my home

Erich Noonan & Heidi Gushue- Buyer- South Bruce

I would like to thank Tone Valeriote from The Kirstine Group for helping me from the very start in purchasing my first home. Being a first time home buyer, I was looking for someone who was knowledgeable and could work around my busy schedule. Communication was above and beyond – emails, texts, phone calls, and even Facebook messages, were answered within minutes it seemed. Everyone at the Kirstine Group made me feel like they were on my side, and would fight to ensure that my purchase went smoothly. I would recommend anyone selling their home, or looking to buy, to contact Tone Valeriote or anyone at The Kirstine Group.


Melody & Steven Peckford- Buyer/Seller- West Grey/ Hanover

We are extremely happy with our recent experience with The Kirstine Group! Tracey was always there to answer any questions we had. I would highly recommend Tracey and her team for buying or selling a house. They went above and beyond to help us out!

Rory Chappelle- Seller- Walkerton

A big thank you goes out to Tracey! From start to finish, she was always able to make this process as smooth, relaxed, and worry-free as possible with her hard work and great communication.

Tamara & Ken Brown & Family – Buyers – Teeswater

Looking to buy a new home? Don’t need to look any further. The Kirstine Group is a one stop shop to help you with this most important purchase.Buying our first home seemed overwhelming at first. We had dealt with a few realtors in the past that didn’t seem interested or motivated enough to make things very comfortable. Once we contacted Tracey, the process become informative and very simple with what steps we needed to take next. We never felt pressured in anyway and Tracey was available to answer any questions we had at any time, which made things more relaxing and easy to understand. After many, many viewings from Durham to Wingham and everywhere in between, she helped us find the perfect home for our family. Tracey Kirstine and The Kirstine Group were more than just realtors, they were friends looking out for our best interest with the biggest purchase of our life. We would like to thank The Kirstine Group for making our experience one of the best.

Brenan Senra & Alisa Lieber – Buyer –  South Bruce

Some may say that, as a first time homebuyer things are a little scary and overwhelming. From the first time we started working with The Kirstine Group and more specifically Tone Valeriote, we realized that he and their team were there for our best interest. Tone has been such a treat to work with and has made our house hunting experience very relaxed and enjoyable. Tone was able to find us everything we asked for and locate us the perfect home. Thank you for all your wonderful and good-natured help, we truly appreciate it. If anyone is looking for an amazing agent Tone and The Kirstine Group are the way to go!
