The Hills Team was truly outstanding! I would recommend this team to everyone!

By: Rebecca and Derrick Fulton

Matthew was refered to me by a friend at work who assured me that Matthew Hill could make the selling of our Brampton home and relocation to Halton Hills completely "stress-free". I had been warned by other people that buying and selling a home is one of the most stressful ordeals that a family will undertake. So after a skeptical snicker, I thought well I'd better at least give this Matthew Hill guy a call. I'm sure glad I did! After taking the time to really understand the needs of our family, Matthew began showing us some homes. After viewing many homes, my husband and I ended up finding our dream home, a NEW home, instead. I was worried that this might alter the relationship I had with Matthew. To the contrary, he was just as helpful as if he was the one selling us that new house. With no monetary gain for him, Matthew helped to keep me informed, answer my questions and offer guidance and reassurance as we went through this buying process, the whole time not knowing if we would even list our current home with him. Needless to say we did. Our home in Brampton sold within a week! He skillfully negotiated the deal up to 98% of our asking price with the long closing date that we needed. We are now happily settled into our new home in Acton, nerves still intact. Yes Matthew you've achieved the impossible. This really was stress-free. I rave about this experience to all of my friends and colleagues. I am so glad I made that phone call that day and that our family had the opportunity to share this experience with you Matthew! P.S. Matthew, a special thanks for coming with us for our pre-delivery inspection at the new home. It was so reassuring to have you there.

By: Gordana and Jason

We chose Glenda Hughes to sell our home because when we met her we immediately liked her and felt that she would be the agent who would ultimately sell our home. She took beautiful pictures for our MLS listing and created a lovely brochure on the features of our home. On our first day of showings we had an offer and we accepted. The inspection was a week later and our home was sold. It doesn't get any better than that. We also used Glenda's services to purchase our new home and she was quite helpful. Glenda is very professional and very warm. When you speak with her, you feel as if you have known her for a lifetime. We would definitely use Glenda again for buying or selling a home.

By: John and Gloria Wilson

Dear John and Matthew, We want to thank you for the way in which you guided us through the house hunting and through the process of purchase and sale. We greatly appreciated your friendly and considerate manner; how you sought to understand and accommodate our needs and desires; and your patience with us while we looked at many properties and throughout our ponderous decision making. We are glad that we decided to enlist your help. Your intimate knowledge of the area made the process easier. We came to trust you completely when you said, "This one's not for you," or "Don't even look at it." Thank you!

By: Michael Hauver

After assisting our parent company Hauver Development Inc. in finding a property to build its new Tayden design home a full year ago, Matthew has been diligent in keeping up with the progress of the property. He took the time to assist along the way with building suggestions (2 car garage instead of 1, for example). Once we were comforatble with a price on the property Matthew already had a buyer lined up and within 24 hours the property was sold at 100% of the asking price. Matthew was informative, knowledgeable and eager to help with our real estate needs! I recommend Matthew and his team without any hesitation, and will continue to use him as my realtor for both personal and professional transactions.

By: Candace, Dave and Nikki

Matthew & John, Couldn't have done it without you. (Well, we could have but it wouldn't have been the same-not nearly as much fun or exciting.) It's been great working with both of you. Matthew special thanks for all the conversations and all the contacts for everything. You are great and we hope to see you and your family in the neighbourhood. Sincerely,


We just want to say we are really thrilled with how everything has turned out! We can't believe how efficient and helpful you were! You made everything incredibly easy and pleasant. We are so glad you were our realtor! We love our new place and are super excited.

By: D. and N. Shoebridge

Hi Matt I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you for all of your time and expertise on selling our property. Your staff have been so great to work with. They were there to help any time we called, and they did it with professionalism and caring. I have to tell you also that our lawyer was impressed with the package you sent. They commented on how quickly it was sent and how everything that was needed was there in that one package. We didn't have to do a thing. What a great team of people! We look forward to completion and we will definitely be telling all of our friends on how good it was to work with you and your team at Halton Homes. Many thanks


Anita seemed to have a good understanding of what I was looking for after showing me only a couple of places...and boy did she get it right!..It was all so effortless, I thought it can't be this easy.

By: Lori and Errol Paraskevas and Family

When we first started looking for homes in Georgetown, we were casually looking and already had a real estate broker that we had used in the past for our transactions in Brampton. At this point, we had not decided whether or not to call this broker again. We met John Hill at an open house one day in Georgetown and immediately felt a connection with him. It was most important to us to feel comfortable with our agent and to feel like we could trust them fully. From day one, John (and later on , Matthew) made us feel like we really mattered in this process. Everything they did was based upon our requests and concerns. Never once did we ever feel pressured by them. They were outstanding. We do feel that the service we received from John and Matthew Hill was exemplary. John is a very patient man who takes the time to listen to your needs, wants, nice-to-haves and puts them all into perspective. His extensive experience in the business and particularly in the Georgetown community really shines through in the service he provides. He worked with us to help us decide what type of house would work best for us and took us only to homes that made sense. Never once did he take us to a house that was outside of our price range or that was not up to the standards we had set out with John. John was able to make us feel comfortable on even the craziest of days. Matthew is definitely on his way to a lengthy, prosperous career in real estate. He has the patience as well but also has the "go-getter" attitude and outlook to help us make quick decisions when necessary. The response time when we placed a call or sent an email to either Matt or John was almost instant. They were always available and willing to accomodate our requests. Even after the closing on the new home, Matthew was right there to guide us around the new neighborhood, providing dining suggestions, local hot spots, and even some lessons on how to operate a water softener! At first. we were only intending on using John and Matthew for the purchase in Georgetown, however once we got to know them better, we knew for sure that we also wanted to take advantage of their experience and professionalism to sell our house in Brampton. We could not have asked for a more professional, personal or satisfying experience! I would not hesitate to recommend John and Matthew to whoever I know may be looking for a real estate agent. I am convinced that there is no way to beat the service they provided so why try!


Chris helped us with the purchase of our new home. Being first-time home buyers, we were not quite sure what to expect but Chris walked us through it every step of the way. I was astonished at how accommodating he was with his time. We found our dream home in no time at all and the whole process was so quick and painless! It was nice to know that he was just a quick phone call away whenever we had any questions. The Pavacic Family, Orangeville


I was referred by a mutual friend and was new to the area. Matthew came highly recommended. What stands out most is the positive and prompt responses , his excellent strategy suggestions for buying our new home and selling our existing properties. The Real Estate experience could be more positive if all rea estate agents were as great as Matthew


Anita Huggins was a pleasure to work with. Thanks!

By: Roger and Gail MacKay

Dear Matthew: Roger and I would like to thank you and John for your professionalism and personal help in selling our home. You became part of our family with your encouragement and sincere interest in our house selling. You also took interest in our needs. When our house did not sell immediately you very wisely brought Savvy Home Stagers in to give us advice on what to change and how to stage our home to bring about a successful sale which helped us receive the price we wanted. After our home sold we started looking for a new home in the Muskoka area. This is when we realized even more what a superb job you had done for us. We met up with realtors that very clearly were not at all that interested in helping us find a home. They would say look at our listings in the office, and leave it at that. We are clients who need a home, would put in a firm offer with no financing. We thought that any realtor would be anxious to help us. It took us a month before we finally found one that would actually give us the personal service that we needed. She is very much like you and we are thankful for that. When we went into houses that are for sale we found that there was no staging and obviously they had not been given the advice that we had, which was to get rid of clutter, keep bathrooms clean, get rid of a lot of personal items and pictures, tone down the bright glaring wall colours and make a home that the client could see themselves living in. Thanking you once again, we wish you continued success in your future with Johnson Associates Halton Ltd. Yours truly,

To Whom It May Concern: It is a pleasure to write this recommendation of Matthew Hill as a realtor. We recently needed to sell our home in Georgetown quite quickly. We knew Matthew had sold other homes in the neighbourhood and contacted him to work with us. Right from the start, Matthew came fully prepared and was both extremely professional and personable. His ability to assess our needs, pay attention to detail and keep a sense of humour in a potentially emotionally demanding time were all strong attributes. We always felt that he had our best interests in mind. Matthew demonstrated a comprehensive understanding of the Halton region and an up-to-date sense of real estate trends. In particular, we appreciated his ability to coordinate good contacts in the trades community to help with finishing touches before we sold. Telephone calls and emails were always responded to promptly and thoughtfully. Most importantly we felt we could trust Matthew to work hard for us. We have been very pleased with the result as our home sold in only 7 days! The entire experience definitely exceeded our expectations! We highly recommend Matthew Hill as an excellent realtor and most importantly a great person to work with. Sincere thanks,


The deciding factors in choosing the Hills Team were simply: they were local to us and were recommended. We were thankful that the sale went so fast and that they understood our challenges with our work schedules and worked around them. Three words that describe them would be Quick, Service and Availability.

The deciding factor for choosing the Hills Team to represent us was due to our fantastic experience with Anita in 2014 as the buyer there was no no hesitation to work together again as the seller in 2016. What stands out in our mind was how well organized, helpful, friendly and always ready to answer any questions! Our staging was awesome as well! A positive experience....Keep doing what you are doing!


Anita, We were initially interested in working with you from your past experience working with my father, you continued to keep in touch even years after working with him. As our agent you kept us up to date on everything and we were able to see properties of interest very fast. Having you help us find a new home was exciting, informative and just plain awesome! Keep doing what you are doing, it worked for us and we were very happy to have you as our agent. Thanks you again Anita, You Rock!!

Matthew Hill was simply great! Even my daughter Claudia enjoyed his company. I would recommend Matthew Hill to Anyone!


We have used the Hills Team multiple times and every time we decide to come back because they are incredibly friendly and very committed to making our experience of buying and selling a home a great one. We continue to recommend you to others. Keep up the good work! Loved the experience yet again.


On a scale from 1 (horrible) to 5 (Great) we rated the Hills Team 5's across the board in respect and courtesy, needs and interest put first, professionalism, knowledge shared with us, concerns and challenges, communication with us, and last but not least the confidence we have in referring the Hills Team to others. We chose to work with the Halton Homes team because Anita Huggins, our agent, was a childhood friend. We value her ethics and professionalism and thought of Anita first when we decided to sell our home. The Halton Homes team provides a lot of expertise and experience. The interactions with agents, office personnel and open house reps were very positive. Continue your excellent level of expertise and care. It was greatly appreciated we definitly recommend Halton Homes. Thanks everyone!


The deciding factor in choosing the Hills Team to represent us was our past experience. We bought a house with Matt and he has been a good resource in our years in Georgetown. There really was no one else considered. He has offered his advise/opinion over the years. We can't imagine what the HT team could do any better. Matt even offered to help move boxes to storage. I can't recommend Matt highly enough!

By: Jamie, Susie, Allana and Ethan

Sir, I just wanted to pass on to you my most recent experience in dealing with one of your agents, Matthew Hill. I was transferred to the Greater Toronto Area from Northern B.C. by my employer, and although I was born and raised in Southwestern Ontario it had been about 20 years since I lived here. A decision was made by our family to choose Georgetown as the starting point of our house hunting. Fortunately, a colleague provided us with Matthew's name. I contacted Matthew through his service and within minimal time Matthew had called me back. I had discussion over the phone with Matthew in which he asked me several questions regarding not only our housing needs but also made inquiries into our family needs. Matthew then sent us several houses that he felt would meet our needs via the internet. This was extremely helpful as we had minimal days to find a new house after traveling across the country. Matthew met us on a Sunday with a list of houses to look at. As we drove from house to house Matthew made sure that he identified various school locations, parks, shopping and access to the highway. If we had a question regarding activities for our children and Matthew was unsure he was on the phone making inquiries for us. As we looked at houses Matthew continued to make inquiries about what we liked and disliked with various houses. Matthew drove us through some neighbourhoods that we planned on not looking at but he felt that we may after listening to us. Finally after two long days of looking at over 20 houses, we were ready to make an offer. Matthew was very helpful in this process. He was realistic and honest in dealing with me. He was great in dealing with home inspectors, lawyers and insurance companies. By far it was the hardest home purchase I have made to date because of the distance, but it was also the easiest. Matthew made himself available for any questions that I had when I returned to northern B.C. as well. Once again he would return my calls in short time. I am employed in a business where communication is an importaht skill, as I believe it is in real estate. Matthew has excellent communication and people skills. As I have had the need to buy and sell houses across the country I have had many dealings with agents, and none have been as positive as this. My only concern is that my wife enjoyed the experience so much with Matthew that I think she wants to sell so we can start looking again. Great experience Matthew, thanks.


Anita Huggins was our sales representative working with The Hills Team. Anita along with Matt maintained a positive attitude throughout our selling process; understood our individual needs and were always respectful and courteous. They kept us informed each step of the way. As a result of their work we finished well. Thank you Anita and Matt!

By: Joanne & Rob

Hi Matthew- Just wanted to let you know that everything went smoothly on Friday, and we started our gradual move into the house over the weekend. Rob and I sincerely appreciate all your help and work, you made the experience very positive and fun for us.....we're so happy with our house! We also appreciate the contacts you recommended to us,Carolyn, Mike and Yves. We met with Mike on Saturday and really liked him. What a far cry from my crazy insurance brokers! We are so happy with how awesome everyone has been, from you helping us find our home and Carolyn helping with Mortgage issues and Mike with insurance and Yves with the thorough inspection... Thank you so much - I hope to never move again, but you never know....if we do we'll certainly give you a call! We will also highly recommend you, Carolyn, Mike and Yves to friends and co-workers :) Have a great day and thanks again for everything-


To prospective home buyers or vendors, I had the pleasure of working with Matthew Hill of The Hills Team when purchasing my home. After meeting to discuss what type of house I was looking for, Matthew first gave me an indication of which areas of town I would be able to look at in my price range and proceeded to show me a range of homes in as many different styles as possible. When I was ready to make an offer on my chosen house, Matthew worked behind the scenes to negotiate the best deal possible for me, including a purchase price which was more than 10% less than listed, and many other complex issues. Matthew and his support team were available by telephone or email throughout the process, guiding me through each step and letting me know well in advance what to expect. Matthew found time to visit after my closing date and view the subsequent improvements to the property. I would feel very confident in recommending Matthew or anyone on his team when buying or selling a home in Halton Hills.


Chris...this has been an awesome experience, from our initial meeting, with tips on staging our home to the final steps when it was sold,and all our questions in between. We felt we were working with very knowledgable representatives in yourself and Matt. It was a seamless process. Your calm,patient approach, and prompt followup was amazing....We would recommend all of you to any needing any type of real estate service. We are truly grateful. Gail Gault
