“Our House Sold Quickly”

“We had a great experience working with Flat Rate. We had a lot of questions, and we were hoping the sale of the house would happen really quickly. Matt, Val, Murray and Cleo really stepped up to the plate and helped us get that done…”


Denis & Louise

“The Flat Rate team definitely went above and beyond…”

“The whole team works together, and they’re very knowledgable. They’re always there. They’re always available. I would definitely choose Flat Rate again…”


Scott & Cheryl

“They always had time for us…”

“I was impressed with how enthusiastic and helpful they are, and they actually feel like they became part of our family…”


“Working with Matt, and the FlatRate team, was an extremely positive experience. Matt’s expertise, patience, and determination make him, in our opinion, the best real estate agent in the North Bay and surrounding area. Matt always had our best interest at the forefront. He took the time to show us many different properties, which in turn helped us understand the current market conditions allowing us to confidently purchase our new home. Matt’s new aged thinking combined with Cleo’s many years of experience complement each other, and creates a unique and powerful sales team that we highly, and gladly, recommend to everyone!”

– Anthony and Candace Iati

“We had the fortunate of working with Matt and the whole Flat Rate Realty team. Matt was diligent, knowledgeable and patient with our many new homeowner questions. Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication to your clients!”

“Sold our house quickly and got us into our dream home.”

“Excellent team! I worked with Matt mainly. He was amazing, always got back to me, answered all my questions, very, very friendly, professional and easy to talk to. Sold our house quickly and got us in our dream home. I can’t thank you enough! I will recommend you to anyone I talk to that’s thinking of selling or buying.”

– Nikki and Herb St. George

“We tried to buy a property privately which was the worst experience of our life. We talked to Cleo and with his guidance and team approach we now own our dream home.”

– W & S Shank

“As first time home buyers we could not have asked for a better real estate agent than Val Beaver. Val provides an extremely friendly and comfortable environment, while maintaining a very professional relationship. With Val we had no pressure to make any decisions and went above and beyond to educate us all along the way. We have complete faith and trust in Val. We highly recommend Val Beaver to anyone looking to buy or sell.”

– Derek & Traci

“Over my 33 year career I bought and sold many houses and dealt with many real estate agents. Cleo Laframboise stood out as the best, the most professional, the easiest to work with, and the one that was clearly working for me. He has a well trained team of agents who share his high standards and ensure every detail is taken care of promptly. Cleo is a quiet, courteous listener who allows you to view the listings without constant chatter so many others seem to think is necessary. I would highly recommend Cleo Laframboise.”

“…my house sold for 25% more than I originally had it listed for.”

“I tried for a couple of years to sell my home on my own and I eventually had made a deal to sell it, but the deal fell through before closing. A friend of mine had recommended Matt because he had sold her house for her. She had her house listed for a year with an agent and another firm and she only had 3 or 4 showings in that year. After hiring Matt, she had 3 or 4 showings per week and the house sold in less than 2 months. Needless to say, she was very happy and recommended him to me. After I listed my home with Matt, he helped me with a few suggestions to help my house sell. Within a couple of months he had my house sold for 25% more than I originally had it listed for. Thanks again Matt. Keep up the good work!”

– Tony Carson

“As a senior I knew it was time to move. I decided to sell my home with Cleo Laframboise. He sold my home and cottage and I have since bought a condo, and the good part is he took out the stress and guided me through the process. Thank you Cleo.”

– B. Cotie

“Murray provided awesome service. He was very military house hunting trip oriented. Thanks to your team, a seamless move. We’ll definitely turn to Murray and the team when we sell our home.”

– Capt. Gareth Carter

“Upon notification of a posting to North Bay, I went online to solicit a realtor and Cleo was the first to reply. With his credentials, including experience with military postings, my wife and I were confident with our choice. Cleo’s focus on our needs was a priority from day one to possession of our house 3 months later. We were well served by having Cleo and his staff assist us with our home purchase and will be calling when the occasion arises in the future.”

“I’m going to miss those house-shopping days that Val made so much fun!”

“Val & Cleo walked many extra miles to market and successfully sell our home, which was not an easy feat with its location. Now that we are in a new home that we absolutely love. I’m going to miss those house-shopping days that Val made so much fun! We could tell that this team truly loves what they do and their excitement is contagious! You won’t go wrong with this dynamic duo on your realty team!”

– Amy & Glen

“I met Val a couple of years ago when I first started looking at buying my first home. At the time I wasn’t ready for that big step, but when I started my search again a couple of months ago I decided to look her up again because she made such a good impression on me. Val has amazing patience for all the questions I have had and showed me every house I wanted to see. She honestly showed me where to look for problems and what hidden assets were available for each property. I can say with absolute certainty that what I’ve learned while exploring North Bay’s real estate with Val will be something I will carry with me into any buying or selling I do in the future. She is great fun to work with and will always steer you in the right direction for your perfect home! My new house already feels like home, and I might have missed out on this great home if it hadn’t been for Val’s knowledge and attention to what she knew I was looking for. I’ve already recommended her to everyone I know that has even a remote chance of buying in North Bay and area because I know she’ll find the perfect home for them too!”

Dear Cleo,
We would like to thank you for the excellent service you have provided us on not one but two sales we have had in the past year.
Our home, which was listed for only four days, was sold for a higher price than listed, thanks to your expertise and handing of the sale.
You and your sales team are experts in the real estate market. The fact that you charge a much lower commission fee is very enticing, from both the seller and buyer’s point of view.
We have enjoyed our business dealings with you and your team and would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone looking to buy or sell their property.
Brodie & Tina
