Making the decision to use Grape Vine was an easy one for us; we always knew we wanted to go the for-sale-by-owner route but this was further bolstered by the fact that two of our most immediate neighbours had previously sold their homes via Grape Vine in record time. When the time came to list, I attended a free private sales seminar the company hosted where I learned more about the process from listing to staging and doing open house etc. as well as the fantastic packages and offerings available and within a matter of days I registered online. Soon after, I set up an appointment for a home visit with a Grape Vine representative who took professional-grade photographs of our property and together with our carefully prepared script our listing went live on Grape Vine.ca in no time. To our pleasant surprise we had begun fielding calls within hours of going live.
Long story short, we sold our property within 3 days albeit conditional and the sale was firmed up a few days afterwards. The icing on the cake was that we did not have to do a single OPEN HOUSE!
Using the Grape Vine platform met all of our expectations; the staff were very pleasant to deal with, efficient, highly professional, timely and nothing short of awesome. Special shout out to Ryan Rogers for his excellent guidance throughout the process, the incisive pep talk he gave us as well as the quality pictures he took of our property. He also handled the listing online to our utmost delight and appreciation.
We highly recommend Grape Vine and will certainly use them again if and when the need arises. Most definitely!
Our experience working with Grapevine was great! The practical advice we received was not any less than what we obtained in the past from real estate agents. Grapevine helped make the selling process smooth and effective.
SOLD!!! We listed our home with Grapevine using the Ultimate Package with the Enhanced Exposure Bundle and had showings and offers coming in the very first day!

It worked brilliantly – the house sold in a week! Thank you Grape Vine!
This is the fifth home we have sold through Grape Vine and we have always found them to be responsive and very helpful with whatever questions came up. Twice we have dealt with multiple offer situations which can be quite stressful but the realtor assigned to us helped to guide us through an open, honest and ethical negotiation.
This time the proof was in the pudding…three offers in hand just twenty four hours after our posting went live…Painless!
This was my first time selling a house and using Grape Vine. I sold my house in 6 days! It was nice to be in control of everything and be hands on. Saving on large amounts of realtor commissions allow you to be more flexible with your price while saving thousands of dollars. Why not give it a go!
I used Grape Vine for the sale of my home. Grape Vine provided very friendly and knowledge staff to assist with the sale of my home. They were very responsive from the moment of my first phone call, and helped me quickly list my home for sale. They took great photos of my home which further highligted it qualities and value. I am very satisfied with the services offered by Grape Vine.
I listed my house with the new Grape Vine Hybrid package. There were a
dozen showings the day the listing went live and multiple offers that
evening. The house was sold within 24 hours! Great result!!
We listed our house through Grapevine realty on April 7, 2017. We were little bit apprehensive as we were one of the earliest users of their newly introduced hybrid package. To our surprise the listing went on smoothly thanks to Ryan (our assigned realtor) and the office staff of Grapevine. Ryan and the office team organized the showing in a clock like precision. Our house was sold in under a month and we are thankful to Grapevine realty/staff.
We would like to thank the entire Grapevine Realty team for all that you have done to help us sell our home. It was an absolute pleasure working with you. We so appreciate how encouraging you all were - especially those calls from Andrea on the weekends. And how organised and on top of all those showing requests by Jenna and Andrea.
We also really appreciate how available you all were to answer our questions and guide us through the process, Shelley and Jeff. It was so nice to know that you were looking at comps and getting all the feedback from the millions (yes, it felt that way at times) showings we had.
And of course Jeff, you were fabulous! Very patient, understanding, knowledgeable, and encouraging. You can tell that you really know your stuff and have a wealth of experience.
You are a great team! We were very impressed. And overall felt at ease trusting your knowledge, professionalism and expertise. We would not hesitate referring people to the hybrid option - which I am so thankful for, I would have hated doing the negotiations myself - this service is a keeper.

During the in-house consultation the Grape Vine representative took very nice pictures of our home for listing on Grape Vine and MLS web sites. He explained selling prices in our neighbourhood and advised how to properly price our house in order to sell quickly and to the right buyer. The best help received was the understanding of the selling process; he explained the steps one by one and handed us a package that explained the process in more details. We felt we had all we needed to help our potential buyers to smoothly write an offer while feeling confident they were doing the right thing. Our home listing went live a Saturday afternoon and I hosted an open house the Sunday after. I was not expecting many visitors since there was no time to promote it, the listing was only live for 24h and my home did not have the “For Sale by Owner” sign yet because it was the weekend… Soon I realized the great reach of Grape Vine web site! With just the online open house promotion I got 6 families visiting my home and 5 of them came with no realtor. The next day I started receiving showing requests, negotiation phone calls and written negotiation worksheets. I was surprised that it all happened so quickly… I ensured that each potential buyer was provided with the negotiation package and step by step instructions about how to put in an offer. Within 3 days of listing we got the written negotiation we wanted and contacted our lawyer to officially communicate to the buyer’s lawyer to receive the official offer. In the mean time grapevine kept contacting me for more and more showings. We received a total of 14 realtor’s visits and 7 private Grape Vine visitors. I found that people who came directly from Grape Vine with no realtor were highly motivated and since their questions got answered immediately they wanted to start negotiating on the spot. Realtor’s clients on the opposite waited for realtors to contact me for answers to their questions and were much slower at starting negotiation; sometimes realtors explained their clients were very interested in my home but wanted to see multiple homes to compare… 3 of the 7 Grape Vine visitors wanted to start negotiation on the spot and 5 of the 14 realtor’s contacted us interested in putting an offer for their clients. We quickly knew who was the right buyer and only accepted their offer. We contacted Grape Vine with the update and they put the “Conditional Sold” update on our listing. The deal was finalized in less than 2 weeks but mostly due to satisfying the conditions and the production of official documents with lawyers.
Now that I know how easy it is, I will never stress about selling my home again because Grape Vine makes it all easy for me. Thank you for such a good job Grape Vine team!
We couldn't be happier with our experience using Grapevine to sell our home. Our home received a conditional offer within 6 days of being live and we were sold within 2 weeks! We are also happy with our decision to choose the Hybrid package. We received many of the same benefits of having an agent at lower commission than traditional Real Estate competitors. Jeff and the team did a great job helping to field calls for viewings which would have been time consuming on our part. Jeff was able to provide beautiful photographs of the home, advice about our pricing, and ultimately helped us to negotiate and close the deal. Thank you Grapevine team! We would certainly recommend you to anyone who is looking to sell or buy a home.

We are thrilled to have sold our condo so quickly! Thanks for your help.
Recently we sold our house using Grape Vine. I wanted to personally thank Grape Vine for a professional and efficient service. We are very pleased! Selling a house was a big challenge for us, we didn't know what to prepare or how to communicate with potential buyers. Grape Vine supplied everything - from a Home Marketing Manual to information for buyers. Grape Vine has obvioulsy put a lot of thought and expertise into their service package. Our House ver smoothly and fast.
Overall dealing with Grape Vine consultants was a great experience and they have great customer service. We would be happy to recommend Grape Vine to people who are looking to sell their property on their own.
Thanks Grape Vine!
Your service made the process easy, everything happened so fast! I am still in shock, I sold in just 10 days!
Our house was listed on a Friday and we had a final sale 10 days later! We estimate that we also saved more than $50,000. in real estate commission fees! We worked hard to prepare our home for sale and were absolutely delighted with the team at Grapevine. Their professional support and customer service was first class! The team was always friendly, helpful and easy to reach. It was a great experience from start to finish!
Our agent, Erin, was a consummate professional throughout the sales process of our home. She priced our house strategically for the market and had it sold in less than 30 days. She handled difficult negotiations on our behalf, arranged for multiple showings, and closed the deal promptly with the desired outcome when qualified buyers presented an offer. The impressive result from this experience stems from the fact that the home had been listed for 4 months previously with another agency, but had not sold despite high traffic volumes. Once Erin completed her homework on the market analysis, the house moved quickly and closed at a higher price point than received from previous offers. The Grapevine experience has proven to be both effective and efficient in moving our home to a status of SOLD. Thank-you! Thank-you!! Thank-you!!!
Grape Vine works! I sold my house within 2 weeks! I will use it again in the future.
It's been a pleasure and will gladly use Grapevine again!
Grapevine made it easy to sell our own home by providing lots of information. Having one of their associates come and explain the process in our initial visit was really quite helpful. And we sold in ONE week!
