Testimonials - Royce Finley | Winnipeg REAL ESTATE BROKER


We help buyers & sellers everyday.  We're grateful for their feedback!


Well, what do you say about a guy who just changed your life? After having our current home 35 days on the market with another brokerage, giving us little to no action or interest, and a looming deadline to close on our dream home ahead, my husband and I decided to take a chance and ask Royce to help us. You know the expression “calling in the big guns?” Well, that’s exactly what happened. What an incredible turn of the tide! Within one day Royce had new signage up, a new lock box up, a new Open House scheduled for the upcoming weekend, sent in a PROFESSIONAL photographer to take new photos of the house the following day (what an amazing difference having a pro makes), all the new photos were up on all the website listings and new professionally designed full colour sell-sheets were delivered by his assistant that SAME DAY. Within only a few days we had 6 showings booked (more than we had seen in 6 weeks with the previous agent). We had a record 16 families out to our Open House! While that may not seem like much to the average seller, we are located in the 4A region of the city, Winnipeg’s north end. While our previous realtor gave us excuses for little interest on our home like, “it’s summer...everybody’s on vacation”, and “Open Houses aren’t really worth it...I showed a house last weekend and only one couple came out”, (like that was testiment to what was happening across the whole city) and “It’s a beautiful house, but it’s the area...if it were in Wolseley I could sell it fast”, Royce didn’t shy away from the challenge or make us feel hopeless that nobody would buy it within our timeframe. Have you ever felt completely hopeless, knowing that your dreams were resting in the wrong hands? That’s how we felt before we asked Royce to help us. I was a basketcase for 6 weeks, trying to do anything I could to help our realtor out. You shouldn’t have to be holding your realtor’s hand to guide you through the somewhat scary and daunting process of selling your home, they should be holding yours and letting you rest securely in their professionalism. That’s what Royce did for us. He sold our house in ONE WEEK, and also within one week of our target deadline, securing our dream home and we could not be happier if you dipped us in tequila!! We will recommend him to everyone. Forever.

Jeff & Lorraine Farmer

Royce is incredible to work with. His energy and enthusiasm is only surpassed by his professionalism. When he says: TRUST is in the Details, you can count on it!!! Thanks Royce for all of your help! I highly recommend using Royce for your Real Estate needs.

I met Royce when he was helping my daughter and her boyfriend find a house and liked him right away. He's friendly, knowledgeable and very accommodating. He went above and beyond any other agent I have ever dealt with. I've never seen so many signs out on the boulevards when he had an open house for me. Some people came to the house because of the signs. Perfect!! His For Sale sign on the property lights up at night so no matter what time anyone went by, they could see the house was for sale. He has a van I can use to move items. As you can see, I can go on and on. He's the very best. If you are looking to sell your home, call Royce!! You won't regret it!

Cathy Rollo

I would like to thank Royce for all the great work he did to sell my house. He knows his stuff regarding selling and buying a house. I will recommend him to all my friends who is in need of selling or buying a house. My wife and I were shocked when the house sold in only 1 day after it was on the market. Royce is a professional person in all ways and is very polite and helpful too. Well done Royce and thanks for your help in selling my house!

Jack & Doreen Fotheringham

It was a pleasure working with Royce. We worked with him as the buyer agent for the sale of our home while out of province. As a result of our sense of his honesty, business integrity and solid work ethic, we engaged him as our buyer agent to find us a new home. We arrived in Winnipeg and gave him 1 week to find us a new home in an extremely limited inventory. This guy never stops working! He is extremely responsive and gets things done! He quickly digested and understood our needs and challenges and worked hard to meet them. We moved into our new home 6 weeks later.

Rolly & Heather Perreaux

Royce was friendly, approachable, and built a strong baseline of communication in order to find out what it was I was looking for in the pursuit of my first home. He always had my best interests in mind, and provided me with information on new homes that fit my specifications as soon as they hit the market. He was someone I could trust and was always certain we would eventually find the place for me – and we did! He made the house hunt fun and stress-free. I am not only glad I had him as an agent, but also that I got to know him as a person. Thanks Royce!

Sean Cruickshank

Enlisting the professional help of Royce Finley for his realtor services as I did was a most remarkable experience. While I could write at considerable length of how he '...went the distance...' with respect to my own humble listing, I would like to summarize my own experience working with Royce as follows: - Royce has life-experience beyond his youthful years and an engaging down-to-earth personality that made it a real privilege to enjoy knowing, and not just working with; & - Royce has both the focus and vision to help bring a successful conclusion in his work. He sets a performance-standard that I wish could be more apparent in so much of our regular daily life. There are other great realtors to consider, but Royce will be my choice.

Randy Chan

I would like to thank Royce for his good advice and support in selling my condo. Because of his recommendations my condo sold very fast. Royce and his assistant Chantel are really working for their clients. They were always available to answer my questions. They offer an excellent service. If I ever need an agent I would definitely call Royce.

Francine Perreault

Royce Finley did an outstanding job selling my home. He helped guide me with what I needed to do on my end to prepare my home for sale, and provided me with an awesome team of professionals to do the banking and lawyer side of the deal. I would recommend Royce Finley to anybody buying or selling their home. Once again, thank you Royce for absolutely taking care of every angle.... you are successful for a good reason!

We sold our home at 238 Royal Mint Drive 12 days after listing. Royce did an initial inspection and suggested some modifications. Following this, he sat down with both my husband and myself and gave us an honest appraisal of our home and the homes in the area. 'Do not overprice', he advised. 'We will sell your home.' We had an illuminated sign on our front lawn. There were two other signs leading into our development on a busy street directing potential buyers to our home. This is the first time I had seen an illuminated sign. Prior to the house going up for sale, attached to our illuminated sign was a notice 'Coming to Market'. Again, I have seen this notice once before. A photographer took several pictures to put on the website. (We heard from two potential buyers that the photos sold them on coming to see our home.) Both my husband and myself were impressed with these innovative methods of sale, right from the market analysis of the area and giving us an honest idea of what we could potentially get for our home to the marketing strategy advising the public that our home was for sale. We had two Open Houses that attracted a lot of potential clients to our home. We received advance notice that there were buyers who wanted to view the home. Through marketing strategy, we had 1 to 4 viewings each day (except for two days). There were attractive colour brochures that were available for potential buyers. Royce was readily available via phone or text and extremely knowledgeable about the process. He liaised with our bank, our lawyer and the other agents. To say that I am impressed with Royce is an understatement. His relaxed approach to the whole process which is life changing for us helped us tremendously.

Barbara and Don Hooper

We can't say enough good things about Royce. He spent a lot of time with us in selling our house. He spent most weekends personally doing our open houses, kept us updated regularly about everything going on and was always very prompt at replying back to any questions we had. He is very knowledgeable and personable. Royce is a fantastic realtor and we would highly recommend him. Thanks Royce!

Dave & Rhonda Bjornsson

After talking to a few realtors and being told that our home could be 'challenging' to sell, we weren't feeling very optimistic. We talked to Royce, and his positive energy, honesty, professional marketing plan, and useful information helped us feel more confident. We were amazed that in TWO days, our home was sold. Never did we think things would go so smoothly. I don't usually write testimonials, but I am making an exception in this case. Royce knows his stuff, and we truly felt that he had our best interests through the whole process. Highly, HIGHLY recommended for all your real estate needs!!

Alana and Jerry Price

Thank you for exceptional service and negotiating skills. You did a great job selling our house and getting me into another one for a great deal. My comfort level dealing with you has been like a friend. Thanks again!

Don Mccrimmon

I stumbled upon Royce's real estate Facebook page just after I fired my long time realtor. I was sad and angry and Royce came to see me ASAP and went out of his way to make sure that honest and caring people were looking out for me while acting as executrix for my father's estate and for the sale of my primary residence. Anyone can sell a house and anyone can show a house, but it's worth it to choose Royce because he's kind and honest and it's hard to come by sales people with that type of integrity.

Kristen Cress

We would 100% recommend Royce to anyone buying a home. He is up front and honest about everything and works extremely hard to find you what you're looking for. He would never recommend that we overpay for something that wasn't worth it, and gave great advice. As first-time home buyers, we were very happy with what Royce had to offer, and in the end he found us a perfect home, and made our home buying experience a great one.

Morgan Rollo

From the beginning, we were very confident that Royce would get the sale complete in the short time frame that we had. From the listing day to the finalized sale day was a quick 11 days...... with $5100 above listing price! A Huge Thank You to Royce and His assistant Chantel.

Glen & Joan Miller

I was nervous that my first home buying experience would be an awful one. You guided me through everything, making this a stress free experience. I love my house and have zero regrets! Thank you.

Made our first time buying a home completely non stressful

Jesse Martin

Working with Royce on this past renovation project has been absolutely amazing. He delivered on his promise to locate me a deal. He not only did that but worked with me by providing referrals to other trades while the project was going on, answering my questions when needed, sending me comparables of the project through the time I held it and much more. He was professional, reliable and did a great job selling the house for top dollar. I am looking forward to working with him and his team again.

Cass Nicole You made our first time home buying experience TOO easy!! I thought it was going to be one of the most stressful times, but you made it so enjoyable. It was a pleasure to get to know you & have you guiding us! You went above & beyond and we are so truly grateful! Can't thank you enough... Thank you!!

Cassandra & Troy

Please see our testimonial below: Royce was an absolute pleasure to work with. He made the process of selling our house easy and painless - selling it within days of being on the market. He also made the process of buying a home a lot of fun - helping us to find a new home that is perfect for our family. Royce was very responsive to all of our requests and patient with all of our questions. He listened to us whole heartedly and was unfazed by several changes we made regarding what we were looking for along the way. Royce was very professional, never put any pressure on us and always responded to us quickly. He is highly knowledgeable about real estate and the ins-and-outs of buying/selling homes, and he always made himself available. It's evident that the happiness and well-being of his clients is #1 to him. We can't imagine having a more positive experience. We can't recommend him enough!

Brett & Kristin Napier

I've been working with Royce for just under a year and can't say enough about his work ethic, tenacity, professionalism and client servicing. As a real estate entrepreneur my needs are often different than that of the average home-buyer. Notwithstanding those differences Royce is able to meet all my needs and has consistently exceeded my expectations. He is truly invested in the long term relationship not just the transaction. This is evident in every aspect of his business and the counsel he provides to his clients. I would recommend working with Royce on any real estate opportunity. You won't be disappointed!

Derek Loepp

First time home buyers, and the process couldn't have been easier! From the moment we met Royce, we could sense that he genuinely cared about what we wanted and making us happy. Royce was always there to answer any questions we had. He had our best interest in mind and gave great feedback and insight to make things more understandable for us. He pays attention to the details and does not overlook anything. We would recommend Royce Finley to anyone either buying or selling!

Jordan and Samantha

My story with Royce.....my plan was to get a local realtor in to price my house and probably put on the market. I was 'very shaky' about the whole buy and sell situation. Everything was happening to fast for me. The person that was selling the condo to me, suggested Royce. I couldn't get my local realtor to my house till the next day, so as a quick thought decided to give Royce a call. Now it doesn't hurt to get a couple estimates does it? Royce arrived and it was 'love at first sight' I knew immediately that I liked this man real well and if my home was going on the market it would be with him. Royce made me feel very comfortable, was able to answer mega questions that I had. Everything seemed to fall into place for me, where I was so difficult hours prior to this. As Royce was leaving my house he asked if I would consider using I'm as an agent. I knew already that he would be 'the man'. I called my local realtor and cancelled his appointment, had Royce come the next day and the rest is history!! I was going away for two weeks vacation leaving Royce in full care of my home and any agents coming through the house. During my vacation time away, I felt very comfortable with somebody I really never knew to well with the keys to my house. Everything in good order upon my return, and a couple days later I was greeted with five offers on my home. Royce handled everything with friendliness and professionalism. I couldn't of asked for a better and nicer person to work with.
