Royal LePage Lannon Realty Ltd. - Thunder Bay, Brokerage Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

On behalf of John, Matthew and I, thank you for the excellent service and hard work!

As before, it has been great working with you.

Mary

Excellent young lady.

Very well spoken, experienced, detail oriented. She is extremely professional and business minded, but also humorous. I was impressed. Vanny was referred to me by a colleague, she sold a vacant lot for her with great success. I decided to give her a try. She met me at the property, already had researched the property, boundaries, and knew everything about the history, etc. Again, I was impressed. I cannot say enough about her. She has a bright future, and would be an asset to anyone prospectively looking to sell.

John P

We worked with Becky to find our new home, and she was awesome to work with.

She had a great eye to help us find the right style of home for our growing family. Becky was helpful, personable, and quick to respond to our questions. She’s super knowledgeable, hardworking and was always prepared. Thank you Becky for helping us find our forever home!

Steph & Henry

Vanny and Carrie were so kind, energetic and easy to work with!

I was a wreck and had no clue where to start...they took the wheel and I felt so safe and secure with their knowledge and expertise. From the moment I did find my home, the were able to point me in all the right places to get it done smoothly! They checked in , made sure my stress was minimal. I couldn’t recommend these two humans enough. Do yourself a favour and put your real estate needs in their capable hands and sit back and watch them make it happen for you!

Selling the family home filled with wonderful memories was an emotional endeavour.

Carrie and Vanny were sensitive to this and really listened to what was important to us. They guided us through the process with understanding, patience, and sound advice. I highly recommend them, not only for their outstanding knowledge of real estate, but for their warmth, kindness, and integrity. Thank you Co-Stars!!

Susan Mundy

Vanny acted on my families behalf for two separate transactions.

Her experience and professionalism were absolutely top-notch. I was working with her as a person that made the experience truly enjoyable as well as successful. She is friendly, a great listener, a fierce negotiator and always helpful. She went above and beyond, and took care of all the details on both transactions. I would recommend her to anyone.

Dan TBay

I was looking for my retirement home this year and Christine Lannon was the agent that I called to help me find it, this was the second home Christine had help me buy.

Christine is the type of person who takes the time to find out what " you" are looking for in a home. She will work with you and for you. Thanks again Christine, for helping me find my forever home!

Mina MacDonald

Alex T

Thank you!

Not sure if you will ever read this Vanny but you are a lifesaver. You always returned my messages within minutes, even when you were on vacation! Selling my house was an emotional time, and you helped me during each step. I couldn't have survived it without you! Thank you!

Cathy

Knowledgeable, reliable, friendly, and a real shark when needed!

Highly recommend her.

JC

My boyfriend and I just sold a home with Vanny after having her recommended to us by a friend.

We are very happy that we listened to that recommendation. From the beginning Vanny was always prompt. It never felt like we were sharing her time with other clients as she was always able to fit our requests into her schedule quickly. She is honest, and hardworking. Highly recommend!

Kry Lee

In 2014 two exciting events happened.

The birth of my third child, followed by the realization that we had outgrown our home. We listed our house through a local agent however I truly credit the sale to Christine Lannon. I was introduced to her initially at an open house while we were house hunting however we later reconnected at a mutual friends Christmas Party. We had been struggling to sell our home, and in fact had already purchased our next home. We were spread thin. After explaining this to Miss Lannon she immediately was able to connect one of her clients to our residence and with ease secured the sale. Where I personally feel our agent hadn’t tried, Miss Lannon went the extra mile for not only her client, but also us. I would highly recommend her for any of your real estate questions, consultations and transactions. She is knowledgeable, professional and also extremely invested in her clients and their well being. Through Miss Lannon, I have also been connected to some amazing community charities in which she works directly with. Her ability to not only sell your home and help you purchase a new one, combined with her strong moral character and humanity make her the only clear choice. She is absolutely a superior agent.

Sarah G

Things are starting to come together room by room !

!! To be honest it is still sinking in that I actually own a house. A huge thank you to ⭐️Christine Lannon, Broker - Royal LePage Lannon Realty Brokerage ⭐️ for all her expert advice, patience, and guidance through this emotional experience. Being a first time buyer and a complete newb to even the basics of home ownership I needed a lot of direction and Christine Lannon went above and beyond for me from start to finish. Throughout the entire search (which was over a year) Christine was friendly, energetic and professional which made me really look forward to each interaction with her. Armed with Christine's knowledge, recommendations, and intuition I was able to make confident decisions/ offers and avoid being deceived or pressured by unethical sellers (Piece of advice: Be extra cautious when it comes to private sales 😅). The benefits from working with a creditable realtor are undeniable. 👍👍👍 Christine truly has her clients best interests at heart. She has my highest recommendation. So happy with my home sweet home 💕 🏡.💕 Shaya Meilleur “

Vanny is a fantastic, genuine, and trustworthy real estate professional.

She helped me find my first home. The process was overwhelming at times, and her knowledge and experience made me feel so much better. She is literally an amazing agent!

Rebeckah W

Becky is a class act.

Highly dedicated to her clients and always goes the extra mile. Thank you Becky!

Tara Rowe

She sold our home (over asking), and found us our new home.

Letting go of our family home was a very emotional experience, it was originally my parents place, Vanny was sensitive to that and helped us cope from the onset and throughout. I was a wreck and she spent a lot of time with me on my front steps, allowing me to cry and reminisce. Words cannot express how grateful we are.

T&E

Takes the time to get to know you and listens to what you want and need.

A step ahead of all other realtors.

Olivia B

Incredibly hard working, honest, and dedicated.

The only thing better than one amazing Costa?? Two! I would 100% recommend to anyone buying or selling their home. The Co-Stars are the best Realtors in town!

Jes M

Jes M

I’m currently working with Vanny Costa.

I’m a first time home buyer and my mortgage person recommended her to me. I really like her! She is smart and easy going, she is probably super busy but I never feel rushed by her. I was working with another agent before, but I always felt rushed by that person and Vanny is the opposite. She always makes it seem like we are buying a house together, she looks at everything so critically, so different from the other agent. Maybe she will help me pay for the mortgage too! lol. If you every read this Vanny, you are awesome!

Marcy C

Ms.

Costa sold my mothers estate. She was referred to me by my lawyer. She worked quickly and had a very calming presence, which was greatly appreciated as I mourned the loss of my mother. Thank you.

Karen M

Vanny is the best!

!! She successfully sold our house (for over asking), and found us our dream home! There were four other offers on our dream home, and she fought hard to get it for us! She goes the extra mile, she is very knowledgeable about home construction, mortgages, and has an awesome personality! She kept us laughing throughout the entire process. We are so pleased with her service and will be recommending her to everyone!

M. Bates

There are so many realtors in Thunder Bay, and I have worked with over a dozen of them in the last 40 years, hands down, I would work with Vanny every time moving forward.

She is thorough, mildly anal retentive (which I appreciated greatly!), well mannered and spoken, knowledgable and friendly. She cares, and it is evident, unlike the numerous money hungry realtors in the city. Out with the old, and in with the new!

AP

It was an absolute pleasure working with Vanny!

From start to finish, she made the processes effortless. I told her what I was looking for and she found me my dream home within my budget! It was so wonderful getting to know you this past year and thank you for putting up with all the emails and texts! Ps thank you for all those coffees! I will recommend you to anyone I know who is buying or selling! THANK YOU!!!

Ashley

Once again Becky has knocked it out of the park.

.. another beautiful home for our family! Becky actually listens to what you are looking for when looking for a new home and gives you honest and productive feedback when selling. After going through a new purchases and sales with her, I can’t imagine finding or selling a home to anyone else!

Ellen

Vanny was very professional and cares deeply about her clients and what they are wanting to accomplish.

We never once felt pressured and she allowed us to work at at a pace we were comfortable with.

Frank

The Co-Stars are the best!

They will roll out the red carpet for you and do a wonderful job! I always felt comfortable around them, and trusted their suggestions and guidance. No other realtor in Thunder Bay does what these girls do. Thank you Vanny and Carrie!

We loved having Christine as our realtor.

She is the right balance between laid back and “on the ball”. She knows her stuff and she’s super fun to be around and work with while you’re house shopping. She’s very responsive and is always easy to reach, which matters a lot when you’re working within a certain time frame. We highly recommend her.

Rachael Giesbrecht

Kathy was fantastic to work with!

We were buying our first home and had no clue how to go about it. Kathy was there every step of the way. She made the process quick and easy, was very knowledgeable and was always there if we had any questions. I highly recommend her as a realtor!!

Jasmine Wilson

What an adventure it was working with The Co-Stars!

They are both very knowledgeable, creative, funny, approachable, calming. We felt at ease the moment that we met them. I can honestly say that we will never use or recommend anyone else other than Vanny and Carrie. They both bring something to the table and balance each other out. Thank you!

The Co-Stars took all of our needs into consideration - and pointed out some other things we should be considering when purchasing our first home.

They had a great knowledge of the area which helped since we were new to town. If you are shopping for a home definitely call them! They turned this scary process into a fun and rewarding adventure.

Jackie

Her professionalism and knowledge of the market is invaluable, both with buying and selling.

Highly recommend. An agent that goes the extra mile and truly enjoys what she does.

Donna V

Thank you for helping me throughout my journey.

Vanny is the quintessential agent: professional, warm, patient and attentive. She brings an approach to the profession rarely seen in the market, that of an agent whose bottom line is the well-being and care of her clients rather than 'making the sale'.

Dominique

Vanny & Carrie made my partner and I feel like their only clients!

From checking the insulation in the attics during home inspections, to advocating for us to get our forever home, they truly go the extra mile every step of the way. They could give us the inside scoop when we needed to know a home’s background, they drafted our offer in a timely fashion, booked showings in no time at all, pointed out things we didn’t even know we were looking for during showings, and always advocated for our best interests. In the end we got the perfect home for a great price. Truly the best realtors in Thunder Bay.

Hayley Yorke

Jaq W

I called Christine with very short notice To assist me with a very quick purchase Of a home.

Christine worked tirelessly to find optimal solutions to make my dream home a reality. Christine was able to assist me with things I could not do while I was at work and this allowed for successful follow-through of the deal. Christine has proven liaison with para professionals in the community and I would recommend her to anyone As a consult or agent in either a buy or sell situation. Christine is a pleasure to deal with easy and comfortable to talk to. Christine was also happy to help both in the day and throughout the evening until the requirements of both the buyer and seller were met. Thank you! For everything ! L Biniaris.

Vanny takes all the guess work out of making your biggest investment - your house!

! She knows all the right questions to ask and has such a fantastic group of professionals she works with from home inspectors to lawyers to mortgage advisors to make your purchase as pain free as humanly possible. She is FAR more interested in getting you the right property for a great deal than she is about making a commission. I will forever recommend her to everyone in Thunder Bay.

Vanny was referred to me through a mutual friend.

I moved out west, and needed to sell my home in Thunder Bay. I reached out to her via email, and within 4 minutes she wrote me back, we booked a FaceTime meeting, and Vanny had my house on the market the next day, and sold within 5 days. I was shocked, and so pleased! She did EVERYTHING!!!! A+++++++++++!!!! She also mopped my floors, like who does that?! Top notch!

What you need in a realtor is that they understand what it is you are looking for, they make themselves available, they are knowledgeable or make themselves knowledgeable by asking the right people the questions that matter to you, they are honest and professional.

Vanny & Carrie are all of those!! Best Realtors in town!

Vanny was the agent for us!

She sold our house quickly, paid for all of the marketing fees, kept us in the loop, and was enthusiastic the whole time. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you! ❤️

Moe helped us purchase our first home.

We came to Thunder Bay from Southwestern Ontario for a week to house hunt and Moe truly made us a priority during our limited time. She was very honest in providing us with her professional advice.

Kathy is very professional and family oriented.

She had our families best interest at heart. She always went above and beyond to support us on our journey of being home owners. We seen her at an open house and instantly said she was going to be our realtor. She’s very responsive and has always answered our questions and if she didn’t know, she would find out. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor who has a great attitude and great ethics. Even after getting our home she continued to support our family and my kids in their fundraisers and a beautiful housewarming gift for us to share as a family.

Ryan Pepe

Making the decision to sell your home is huge.

..choosing the right real estate agent is even bigger. I chose Moe to list my property because she is dedicated to her clients and understands the real estate market. Moe never left me hanging, followed up on every lead, and reported back to me so I always knew how the showings went. Moe's honesty helped me better show the property and her commitment closed the deal. If you want an experienced sales person to list your property and a seasoned negotiator to close the deal...choose Moe! Florence MacLean

Carrie and Vanny Costa really live and breathe real estate.

This dream team was recommended to us by several of our friends. My partner and I texted Carrie on a Saturday afternoon hoping to start viewing some houses. Less than a week later they had helped us view and put an offer in for our dream house! These ladies are super responsive, really knowledgeable and have great connections with other people in the profession. And they both are a hoot to work with! We could not have had a better first time home buying experience and I highly recommend others reach out to this team for any of their real estate needs--you will regret not doing it sooner!

Patricia Vo

With Christine's help, we are now proud first-time home owners 😊 She was our rock and deftly helped us maneuver every obstacle that popped up throughout the process.

Without her, we would have literally had no clue what we were doing. Her help went above and beyond what we could have hoped for or expected, she really truly puts her heart into her work and cares about her clients. I will be recommending her to anyone I know looking for a home !! Thank you Christine 💙

Jamis Hall

We first met Christine 4 1/2 years ago after lengthy research to find the right Realtor to market our dream home we had designed and built on Lake Superior.

It was important to us to find the right salesperson with fresh ideas as well under stood the new technological tools available today to market unique properties. We weren't looking for the same old salesperson that was just looking for another listing to brighten their resume. Christine jumped to the challenge and delivered us a perfect marketing package very quickly that resulted in a sale of our property. Christine was able to deliver us a very great offer within 1 day of our listing going public and a signed offer within 3 days. We were totally shocked and extremely happy as we were expecting many months of potential anguish as we put our lives on hold waiting for a potential sale. We thank you again Christine for your great work. Val & Robb

Robb Strawson

Vanny is an extraordinary realtor.

She is kind, fun, honest, and knows whats she is doing. She cares and listens to what your needs are, and BAM! she gets it done. She's always available when you need her and she is very trustworthy and professional. I would recommend her to anyone, and i will be a client of Vanny's until i have moved for my last time.! Thanks again for everything Vanny! Marc

Marc Larocque

Excellent Service!

! A wealth of knowledge from The Co-Stars! They go above and beyond and truly care about their clients! We moved to Thunder Bay in 2017 and Vanny worked with us to purchase our property. It was a sellers market so we were a bit nervous as buyers. Vanny kept us away from bidding wars and made sure we did not overpay for our house. Two years later we are being moved with our employer. The Co-Stars worked with us to sell our house. When we first met with them and they told us the value had increased 32% we were quite surprised. We listed the house for what they suggested and it sold in less than one month. We would highly recommend them!

L&B

Vanny has the patience of a saint.

My extremely picky girlfriend could not make up her mind, Vanny showed us over 35 houses. 35! Her attitude was always positive, and we felt like we mattered, like we were not a pest. She has a really cool app that we used to share houses back and forth.

Joe

Christine has helped me buy two homes and both time she provided excellent help.

The second time Christine helped me buy a home I was living out of town and had to do almost all my house hunting from out of town. She was able to set up virtual tours along with giving us and overall feel for the home. She would help direct our attention to things in the home that does not translate well in video. Buying a home with only virtual tours can be weird but Christine was patient and accommodation to all our ridiculous requests and questions. Christine never made us feel guilty for asking to many questions which made the process much less stressful Most importantly Christine is trustworthy and will make sure she is setting you up with a home you and your family will enjoy!!

Dan D

Vanny takes care of business!

!! She’s very resourceful and knowledgeable; Quick and efficient and brings realty to the next level!! We loved having her take care of our buying and selling

Amanda Corbett

Vanny and Carrie helped us find our forever home and sold our home.

They produced 7 offers on our house, we feel their marketing and overall strategies caused this to happen. There are many agents in the city but they are by far the best. We highly recommend them! They are passionate and caring women that know how to get it done!

Meg

Selling the family home filled with wonderful memories was an emotional endeavour.

Carrie and Vanny were sensitive to this and really listened to what was important to us. They guided us through the process with understanding, patience, and sound advice.

Susan Mundy

"Shumsun and I were looking for our first house in late 2019 and went to Moe for her expertise.

Within a month, after having a successful negotiation, we owned our very first house. We are really grateful to Moe for her professional as well as caring approach. She literally walked us through all the processes to purchase a house. It was a great experience. Wish her all the best." Best Regards, Syed Ahmed,

Shumsun and Syed

I was clueless when I started thinking about buying a house.

I picked Vanny because she looked like someone that I would get along with. I texted her and we met for beers. I was nervous but as soon as I saw her walk through the door, she smiled and I knew she was cool. She took care of everything, from start to finish. Like I said I was clueless, and Vanny went slowly with me and made sure I understood. I will recommend her to all my buddies. Plus, she always picks up the tab when we go for beers and wings! haha sold!

Chris G

I have heard nothing but amazing things about Vanny.

I met her at a local sports event that she was sponsoring. She was so chill and has a real ability to connect with people. She took so much time to sit with me, to make sure I find the perfect home for me. Thank you.

Dan

We highly recommend Vanny Costa.

I purchased a house this year with the help of Kathy Ulakovic.

She is a hard working, smart and informative realtor. She answered all my calls with enthusiasm. Kathy has no problem going above and beyond when doing her job. It seemed to me she takes a personal interest in helping her clients. I believe Kathy did that with me. I highly recommend calling Kathy when buying real estate. Because of Kathy I am a happy homeowner.

Carrie and Vanny Costa really live and breathe real estate.

This dream team was recommended to us by several of our friends. My partner and I texted Carrie on a Saturday afternoon hoping to start viewing some houses. Less than a week later they had helped us view and put an offer in for our dream house! These ladies are super responsive, really knowledgeable and have great connections with other people in the profession. And they both are a hoot to work with! We could not have had a better first time home buying experience and I highly recommend others reach out to this team for any of their real estate needs--you will regret not doing it sooner!

I recently came to the decision to sell my country home .

I enlisted the help to sell with Royal LePage Lannon Realty with the sales broker expertise of Becky Forrester. Becky made selling my home very easy with her knowledge and expertise from start to finish. She took care of every detail with perfection. It was a great experience and Becky made it happen in a very short time. I am so thankful I chose Becky as my sales broker. I would recommend Becky and Nadine Friday ( associate ) for anyone who is going to sell their home. They did a tremendous job and I am very grateful to Becky and Nadine for all the services they provided.

Carrie and Vanny were amazing to work with!

! They helped me every step of the way and were there anytime literally to answer any questions or my million texts!! Buying a house is a huge event and I truly believe without the support of Carrie and Vanny this experience would not have been as wonderful or went as smoothly as it did! I love my house, the process was so easy having Carrie and Vanny there to support and guide me!! Truly an amazing experience!

We found Vanny on Facebook.

She has a very active social media presence, and her posts are informative and also very funny. We reached out to her and she took us out for coffee, and the rest is history! She listed our house, sold it quickly and found us our forever home. She is not your typical agent. She spent so much time with us, and we know that she had a million other things to do but she always took the time and made us feel special. Her duty of care cannot be beat!

We met Vanny at a baseball, she was very approachable from the onset, friendly and funny.

She listened to our needs and found us exactly what we were looking for. She always got back to us quickly, and showed us houses right away, even though we knew house busy she was. She always made time for us, and we never felt pressured. She made everything run smoothly. Most agents just want to show you a house, we often forgot that she was getting paid for helping us as her only focus was us. We did found a house we liked, but after Vanny voiced her concerns (she pointed out problems in the basement, and in the attic. She actually went in the attic!!), we decided not to buy it, it was a lemon. She is honest and extremely knowledgeable about the inner workings of a house, we were so impressed!! Highly, highly, highly recommend! She also sponsors the Thunder Bay Border Cats, and gave us free tickets for the whole family!

The Co-Stars helped us to stage and prepare our home for a quick sale.

Ultimately, our home sold in 8 days during a global pandemic which is remarkable. We are thrilled with the results and would highly recommend this team for anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home in Thunder Bay! Thank you Vanny & Carrie Costa. - JW

What a great agent!

! Vanny is well spoken, and charming. She truly cared about me and what my needs were. There are so many agents in Thunder Bay that simply just sell your house or find you a house. Vanny takes the time. I would highly recommend her.

Look no further, Vanny Costa is the real deal!

! I would definitely recommend Ms. Costa to anyone who is serious about buying their dream home!! She is courteous , knowledgable, intelligent, warm, charismatic, the list goes on and on , she is truly a gem!!! Mark my words, this young lady is going places!

Polly

Vanny was an extremely informative and helpful realtor!

She assisted me in finding my dream home within my budget and we had a lot of fun in the process! Thank you Vanny, it was a pleasure to work with you!

Christine is simply the perfect combination for a real estate agent.

I have to acknowledge her for being so understanding throughout almost 6 months of continuous searches for a suitable house for my family. When I came to Canada, I thought that I would not need any help from a real estate professional, especially since I am an engineer and work in the real estate business for almost 8 years. Her support and knowledge was invaluable. You can simply feel her care and concern to the extent that I was able to do all the purchasing process from outside of Canada! I really cannot think of a better real estate agent who precisely understands the purchasing process and provide you with the adequate information to make an informed decision in purchasing a suitable house for you and your family.

From start to finish the Donatis brothers sales team were there for us.

We are from out of town selling a home in Thunder Bay and they worked with us and for us in a very thorough and professional manner. We first called about an appraisal and they came and did an evaluation of the house that was extremely helpful with getting the amount we wanted. I can't even put it into words on how helpful they were. They really went above and beyond for us. It seemed like they had every facet covered and made the process so stress free and easy. They sold the house in just one week for above asking price! We've had a few realtors in the past but nothing like these two! Thanks again a million times over Jake and Zac!

Thomas Whately

Vanny & Carrie conducted two assessments for my grandfathers estate.

They approached it with professionalism and sensitivity as they knew our whole family was very emotional. I was extremely impressed. Their assessments were very detailed and our estate lawyer was very impressed too. I cannot say enough positive comments about them. Anyone who chooses them will be in excellent hands! They are both Realtors who will stand the test of time! Thank you for taking care of our family affairs.

Vanny is very knowledgeable and patient.

She answered all of our questions from the start and we felt that she was always there and in control of the situation. She was always a step ahead of us! She had a great plan to sell our home and she did exactly what she promised us and then she helped us find our new home. She is very transparent and you know what is going on with her. My wife and I will not hesitate to call her again and to refer her to everyone we know. Thank you again Vanny for your great work!
