I work mainly in the Sherbrooke, Memphremagog and surrounding areas. Having been in real estate since 2007 and after hundreds of transactions, I really have a strong feeling of helping people.
Selling the home where you spent a more or less significant part of your life is an exciting process, but it can also be extremely stressful. I have to be empathetic with my clients, to understand and help them manage the stress they’re going through. For SELLERS, my job is to help them get the most that the market can offer. BUYERS want to be sure they make the right choice. Once they have chosen a property in an area they like, they ask me “Am I paying too much?", or "Did I pay the fair market value, the right price?”
For many people, a real estate property is the most important asset of their financial portfolio. My involvement has a huge impact on people's lives and I take my role very seriously. My clients are making a huge bet on my success and what motivates me is to make a positive difference in their lives. It's important for me to earn the confidence of my clients, whether it’s to help them sell their most valuable asset or buy the property where they will raise their family or the pied-à-terre they have always dreamed to own.
I believe in continuous training and in keeping at the forefront of technology in my industry. Market knowledge, professionalism, thoroughness, and empathy are the qualities that my clients most appreciate in me.
For a transaction with confidence,
We called on Francine for the purchase of our first condo in the Townships and right at first contact, we were conquered by Francine’s confidence and professionalism. She was always a great listener and very available to us. If you are looking for personal values such as integrity, respect, joviality, confidence, efficiency and listening... well, don’t hesitate! You have found the right person to achieve your project! It was a rewarding experience, thanks to you Francine, we found our pied-à-terre in the Eastern Townships!
The sale of my property happened while we were going through difficult times. I appreciated Francine’s support and discretion. I felt her compassion through the efficiency and speed with which she moved the file forward. Francine made my life easier even though my mind wasn’t fully into it. Thank you Francine!
Buying a first home is always an exciting moment, but how stressful! We want to make sure to make the right choices and not have bad surprises! Thanks to Francine’s good advice, her support, professionalism and wonderful availability, I am now a proud homeowner!
We decided to approach Ms. Poirier for the sale of our property we had been trying to sell for almost five years (3 years on DuProprio and a year and a half with an agent representing another banner). Using comparable properties, Ms. Poirier quickly made it clear that the asking price, based on a professional assessment, was not representative of the current market situation. And after only a few months listed at the adjusted market price, our house will soon be seeing its new owners. Francine Poirier is an essential reference in real estate.
I have dealt with several Realtors in my life and never have I had better service with Francine!
I recommend Francine without hesitation! Through her knowledge of the market, she was able to target the right buyers for my house. I also want to emphasize her professionalism, availability and her great respect. After trying to sell on DuProprio during 1 year, without success... Thank you!!!
From the first meeting, I found you very professional and you inspired confidence. I had no idea that the sale would happen so fast. Barely a week, it's amazing! My neighbors were surprised to see the “SOLD” sign out front."
Put a house up for sale means leaving behind a piece of one’s life for a future that we hope will be better. Then comes the moment to put this small part of our destiny into the hands of the right person. How to choose the right broker? Which one could I put my trust into? I made the right choice! With the listing description and pictures of my house, Francine targeted the right customers. In less than two months, I had an offer. It is during the crucial negotiation period that you can tell what makes a great real estate agent. Francine offered me support, reassured me, and made me feel secure at every step of the final transaction which she handled masterfully.
What we most enjoyed working with Francine was her transparency regarding the actual condition and the sales potential of the property. At no time, we felt pressure to buy, and this sense of freedom allowed us to make an informed decision. Francine, your comforting approach transformed our apprehension of the unknown into an enjoyable experience! Thanks for everything!
From the beginning, Francine gave us great advice, partly through her knowledge of Home Staging. Throughout the process, she was there to answer our questions, reassure us in our moments of doubt. She was always available, in a good mood, positive. She put us in touch with the right people at the right time. She even referred us to a broker from outside of the region for the purchase of our new property. Thanks for everything!
I live in Montreal full-time. I contacted Ms. Poirier to sell my secondary home. What a great choice! Despite the distance, all the follow-ups were done quickly and efficiently. Ms. Poirier accompanied me throughout the process. From the property assessment to the marketing, to meeting the conditions of the purchase offer right up to the signing at the notary, she left no detail unresolved. I felt supported, listened to, and well-advised throughout the sales process. She assessed the property at its fair value and suggested sensible renovations that helped speed up the sale (5 visits in 10 days, I didn’t have time to finish some renovations before I received a purchase offer). She was a pleasure to do business with.
We were being transferred from Belgium to Quebec with our four children, and despite the 5500 km that separated us from Sherbrooke, Francine was very attentive to our needs and managed to organize our prospecting week in such a way that we were able to visit the 17 houses we had selected in just two days. Once our choice had been made, Francine gave us excellent support, considering we did not know the rules and customs of Quebec. In short, we love our home and we wouldn’t hesitate to put our confidence into Francine in finding our next home...
I’d like to thank Francine for her enthusiasm, dedication, knowledge and energy in selling my home in such a difficult market. Francine was very easy to deal with, always available for my questions, and took great pains to explain and to translate into English the many intricacies involved in selling a property. She consistently gave me at least 24 hours’ notice of any visits, and was very respectful of my wishes concerning security and access. In addition, she did an excellent job of researching the market, setting asking prices and negotiating the final sale. In short, Francine is a delightful person to work with, being very professional and with integrity, but also very personable and thoughtful. I highly recommend Francine to any prospective sellers or buyers.
Being from outside Quebec, there were aspects of the transaction that were not familiar to us, and Francine was very helpful in explaining them to us, and if she wasn’t sure of something, she quickly sought the answer. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Francine to anyone looking to purchase or sale a property. Francine’s professionalism and knowledge are abundant.
It is with full confidence and great pleasure that I recommend you without hesitation! I enjoyed your input shared with the utmost respect, your knowledge, your sense of detail and your patience! I felt you were listening to my needs and never put undue pressure. It is clear that you have at heart the satisfaction of your customers. You demonstrated great flexibility and availability and you made my home purchase a very smooth experience. A big thank you!
