Nick Fairchild

Buyer Rating:

We actually looked at this property last year. It has since been relisted with Century 21. If Nick was not the listing agent, we most likely would not have purchased this property. He was outstanding in making this deal for us.

I have dealt with many realtors in the past and Nick surpassed everyone in many ways. He was there through every step and never made you feel like you were a bother. He always had the answers and if he didn't he wasn't afraid to say I don't know, but I will get the answer for you. He was the most honest realtor I have ever known. We really appreciate everything he did for us!!

Nick Fairchild is an outstanding realtor. Should we decided to purchase in the area again we will call Century 21 and ask for Nick. We would recommend him to family and friends. - Marcia Terwillegar, Ceda August 2015

Gary McDowell

We have nothing but great things to say about Gary. He made our home search easy and answered whatever questions we asked (which were a lot!) He was always quick to answer phone calls and texts about homes we were interested in. We are so thankful to Century 21 and Gary for being patient with us and doing whatever needed to make our home buying process as smooth as possible. We will definitely recommend Century 21 and Gary McDowell to our family and friends.

Thank you for helping us find our dream home! - Catherine Collins And Ch August 2017

Gary McDowell

Buyer Rating:

Working with Gary was a pleasant surprise to our moving and house purchasing experience. I can't say that it was the easiest of circumstances because we were moving from far away and I was dealing with work circumstances at the same time.Gary took care of everything that was needed without a second thought. He was willing to show us the houses that we'd been looking at online and added a few that fit within our criteria. We spent several long days driving from house to house and Gary never complained and offered sound advice when making the choice that was right for us. He is caring and compassionate about his clients and truly has everyone's best interest at heart. I couldn't say enough about the positive experience that we had with Gary. He will be my go to in the future, but I don't plan on moving out of our beautiful home anytime soon! - Christina Beck, Sault St May 2017
