What a pleasant experience in buying my first Condo to live in. I didn't even know how smooth this process went. I had heard horror stories from others but dealing with you in buying my first place was such a happy experience. Your knowledge about the market,your understanding of my goals and timeline, above all negotiating the best terms for me are admirable.
When I was referred to you by your past client, I was in two minds whether to meet with you or with other agents which were referred to me. I can NOW SAY THAT I MADE THE RIGHT DECISION by choosing you as my Realtor.
I would not hesitate recommending you to anyone who is thinking of buying.
Good Job...Well Done
Once again you have proved that you understand client's requirements and will follow through on their plans and achieve their goals. This time our goal was to buy something for our living.

We finally closed our home to live in and we cannot Thank you enough for helping us in every respect to make this our Home. Thank you for being their for us and guiding us in making right Real Estate decisions.
Sathish & Gita
May God Bless you for doing everything right for us. When we were deciding on the agent to sell our home, we had over 20 agents to choose from but myself and my husband Sam felt very comfortable listing with you. It was a hard decision but we are so happy that we CHOSE you to sell our home. You were so articulate and your guidance on showcasing our home resulted in an offer within 30 days (though the homes in our area take more than 60 days to sell) and you gave us wonderful news on a X'mas day that we have an offer. Your negotiating skill, your presenting of the home and marketing strategy and the exposure of our home...they all added up for a SUCCESSFUL SALE at the price which we were aiming at. Thank you. We will always keep you in our prayers.
We are also Thankful to you for the home you selected for us. We all love you for that. My son adores his space and so does my daughter. You were the one who made us buy that home. You really understood our requirements and what will make us happy as A FAMILY. My whole family is grateful for your sincere advise. WE ALL LOVE YOU. You are the BEST. KEEP DOING GOOD WORK.
Adriana & Sam
Being relatively new to Canada and having to sell a home for the first time was a stressful and intimidating thought. Actually I was petrified because of my previous experience with the buying of a house, the potential to incur losses, selling remotely, and the uncertainty of the housing market at this time. I thought that this was going to be a very difficult undertaking.
I want to let you know that your sincerity, amazing personality, calm and steadfast approach to the tasks at hand, your trustworthiness, and your trust in me, made my first venture at selling a home in Canada a happy, memorable and stress-free event, despite the seemingly daunting possibilities.
You are an amazing angel with a gift for helping, and I am truly blessed to have found you to help me through this.
I am extremely grateful that you were the person recommended. I want you to know that you will be my number one choice and I would recommend you without any reservations whatsoever for sale or purchase of a home to all my friends and family.
My most sincere thanks once again for the guidance, help, service and support you provided since we started our relationship. I hope we can meet one day in person sometime in the future.
Thank you … especially for smile you brought to my heart and family.
Take care, and all the best always….
Dear Maya What can I say about your service. You have proved me all the time that you go beyond your DUTY OF THE CALL. When we bought our condo at 35 Kingsbridge Garden 6 years ago you helped us with every aspect of the purchase and then you managed the property for us so well making sure to choose the right tenant and also looking after our property. In October when we decided to sell the condo, you got us the BEST PRICE in TOWN in the building and also helped us close the whole transaction and even pick up our final cheque. We didn't even have to come to get the formalities done. We appreciate all your hard work,your patience and above all your Passion for helping. We will surely refer you to all our friends, family and ofcourse when we decide to buy again we know where you are? Ofcourse this time we will make Switzerland our Home for now. Thank you once again for everything. Keep up the good work. Wajahat Zaidi

We have only known Maya Garg for 4 days because thats how long it took for her to sell our house. Due to the expertise she demonstrated in correctly pricing our property, along with her experience at the negotiating table, we not only sold our house in a timely manner but received exactly what we were looking for as far as selling price went. We found Maya warm and friendly. Her staging abilities helped her in selling our home. We have been singing her praises to all our family and friends. Thank you Maya for making us feel at home.
