There are many things that we can say about the high quality of service that we provide to my home seller and home buyer clients, but probably none would be as credible as testimonials from some of our recent clients themselves.


So please take a moment to read the following testimonials. We hope they indicate our experience and integrity, as well as make it clear how much we enjoy helping people with their real estate needs.


We would be happy to email you additional testimonials if you are interested.

I have known Dawna Hamilton for 18 years and throughout that time she has demonstrated an incredible passion for her work as a real estate broker at Modern Living Realty. When it came time to sell my home, Dawna encouraged us to ready our home for the market with several ideas and suggestions as to staging and updates. As a result, we were able to make double what we initially paid for the home. Her calm manner made negotiations at a stressful time more bearable when we had little time to purchase our new home. She worked with tenacity selling our former home in November (an off-season time for selling) enabling us to breathe a sigh of relief knowing that we no longer had to carry the responsibility of two homes during the winter months. Dawna is warm, kind and yet capable of negotiating the real estate world with determination and savvy given her many years of experience.

It is with great appreciation I write this letter of thanks. Our home was on the market for only eighteen days and due to your superb negotiating skills sold at 98 ½% of our asking price. When it came to our condo purchase approximately ten days later you listened to our specific requests and went beyond what any realtor is required to do. As this is our first time being condo owners it was a learning experience and your knowledge of how the process works was most beneficial.


Therefore I would highly recommend you to any owner looking for results and to any buyer searching for a realtor who is really in tune to their client’s needs.


You personify professionalism to the highest degree and your ‘smiley face’ along with your humour and understanding during such a stressful time made both these events most memorable for my sons Kent, Kevin and myself.

Over my lifetime I’ve purchased and sold numerous homes and you by far are a five star performer.


Once again…….thank you Dawna


Paula & Kent

I was very impressed with how quick Dawna sold my house in Russell. Thank-you for all of the hard work and dedication that you put into everything that you do. Whenever I need to make another move,, I know who I am calling!



"Brenda is a miracle worker! Not only was my home small and in a rural area, but I needed to sell quickly. Brenda priced it perfectly, placed the ads where they needed to be and it *SOLD* with time to spare. I can't thank her enough and would (no WILL) recommend her to anyone looking for a truly professional agent who knows her stuff!"

"Dawna helped me purchase the house of my dreams. She was very professional, caring about my needs and extremely patient with my difficulty in making the right decision. I would recommend Dawna and her team to my friends and family. She is great at what she does."

"The thought of selling and buying a house caused Rod & I considerable amount of anxiety as we were unfamiliar with the real estate process. After our first meeting with Brenda we realized with her experience and commitment she would make this process as worry free as possible. Brenda’s confidence and no-sense approach ensured us she had everything under control. When an issue or concerns did arise she dealt with it quickly and efficiently. Brenda interfaced with inspectors, lawyers, agents and home owners in a very professional and friendly manner.


We listed our house and sold for a higher then listed price in less than a week which was very exciting. We were able to buy a beautiful new home in the same time frame for the right price and in the location we desired.


Brenda continuously emailed and phoned us keeping us informed all transactions. During this time she went beyond her duties and even looked after our little dog to make sure he was kept happy and stress free.


Rod & I not only had received excellent service during this time but we also gained a friend, enjoying Brenda’s out going nature and good humor.


Thanks Brenda for everything; we love our new home and you are welcome to visit anytime."


Rod & Jen Willows

It is with great pleasure that I recommend the real estate services of Dawna Hamilton.


My wife and I had listed our home through Comfree on two different occasions with no success. We decided to list through an agent and interviewed several real estate sales representatives before choosing Dawna.

When we met with Dawna, she took the time to go through our home and gave us the positives as well as the negatives that could be improved upon. She also showed us direct comparable of homes in our area. The difference with Dawna is that she knows our area and wasn't just comparing our home to just any home, but with comparable neighborhoods which is information that only someone with direct knowledge of Osgoode could provide. We felt comfortable signing with Dawna right away and it didn't hurt that she has over 30 years’ experience, owns her own brokerage and is a licensed appraiser.

We immediately had several showings and within a short time, had an offer on our home. She also went above and beyond by finding a builder and negotiated a fantastic price on a new build for the home we wanted.

I can't thank Dawna enough for all her hard work and would gladly recommend her services to anyone looking to buy or sell a home
