Emily Blanchard was the PERFECT realtor for me and she had an extremely efficient backup administrator in Melissa judging by the speed and accuracy with which documents were produced. Emily “listened” and made me comfortable with my decisions. Given the way Kim Monkhouse stepped in where needed with energy and enthusiasm gave me more evidence of the effectiveness of this Oldford Team. From my experience Emily, Kim and Melissa are three of the best real estate professionals in the business. I hope and expect that your high personal performance standards will return a banner year to you in this insane market. Emily Blanchard heard my perceived obstacles; then removed them as non-issues via her social skills and industry experience. This Oldford Team was tops in effectiveness.

Selling our home was a first time experience for us at 70 years old. It was an enjoyable experience and not stressful at all. Emily’s guidance through the transaction was very complete and pleasant. The outcome was just what we had hoped for. We do hope the new owner will be happy and enjoy the property as much as we have.
D.K & A.K from South Mountain – July 2021
I cannot say enough good/great things about Nathan Lang and the services he has provide to us for the two separate dealings we have had with him recently. I was advised by Nathan that I should list our home for more than I had anticipated and the fact that it sold within a 2 week period proved that he was correct in advising me of this as he definitely knows the market. I was very grateful for his honesty and advice. He is a pleasure to do business with. I would highly recommend him to anyone & I will in the future.
D.M from Winchester – March 2020
Nathan was always a text away during the selling stage. He made himself available at all hours and made the extra effort to bring clients into the house. I thought that because of the location it would be difficult but the Oldford Team kept the showings going and made it and exciting experience. They took the time to explain the process and answer any questions we had.
K.F from Brinston – February 2020
Kim was extremely helpful, always available and really friendly. She knew her stuff and was instrumental in helping us closing on a property that suited us. Thank you Kim!!!
D.G. – October 2019
Nathan was professional and very knowledgeable of the area.
J.M from Kemptville – October 2019
Communication was perfect, always available to talk, Emily went the extra whenever or whatever was needed. She did what she said she would do, always dotted the i’s and crossed the t’s.
T.S from Berwick- October 2019
My levels of satisfaction on the printed feedback form were checked –all excellent – for providing clear and helpful information and advice, they listened to my questions and concerns, were constantly in contact to inform me of progress, and they were always punctual for appointments and deadlines. Overall their services were excellent and professional from start to finish!
I cannot thank Emily and Nathan enough for their guidance, professional sales approach and general interest in me as a home seller, that went beyond their own commission interest.
This team has my highest recommendation for a real estate transaction whether anyone is a seller or buyer.
M.C. from Chesterville – May 2019
(Name Removed) and I just want to say a big thank you to both of you for looking after the listings. the signage place don the lots, and most of all for finding buyers for both of our lots. Our original decision in selecting the Oldford Team was based on your experience, reputation and knowledge of the area. We were not in any rush to sell but knew all along buyers would be found by your team. We are happy with the sale prices and the smooth process the Oldford Team provided us.
P.G from South Dundas – May 2019
Everything went exceptionally well with the selling of my son’s (Name removed) house in (Address Removed), Mountain. The house was at least 100 years old – four generations of our family had lived there. Of course it needed work done. My family did a lot of work to make it presentable. Nathan advised us of things needed to be removed or replaced, this was very helpful. He took an interest in everything. Nathan was quick to explain the procedure, advise a price, and get things started. Nathan certainly went out of his way to get the house sold in 2 months. He talked to me often and kept me well informed. It was an enjoyable learning adventure for me. Thank you.
S.L from Mountain – February 2019
I would like to thank the Oldford Team for selling my home so quickly. I would like to give a shout out to Nathan Lang, this was the second property he represented in three years. Butch sold a commercial property last year for me. you guys are the greatest. Very helpful and great advice. I don’t think too many agents would physically dig up the septic to help find it as Nathan did. “Very Helpful”. Thanks Guys!
–C.F. from Brinston – July 2018
Both Nathan and Emily provided excellent information and service. Emily was particularly helpful with information and liaising with the seller. Nathan and Emily made our home purchase and transition from Ottawa to Chesterville as painless as possible. Their knowledge of the area and the market was very important to our decision making. We would highly recommend The Oldford Team to anyone looking to buy or sell in this area. Thanks Nathan and Emily.
–J.G & N.G. from Chesterville – June 2018
All I can say is thank you. The sale of my home went so quickly, I was happily amazed. Nathan did a great job presenting it to he world. Integrity was important to me, and I feel confident the house was sold this way.
–W.H. from Chesterville – April 2018
It was a pleasure dealing with Kim Monkhouse. She made the whole process enjoyable and informative. Kim was very patient with us and answered all our concerns with a smile. She made a scary process for us turn into a dream come true.
–J.B. from Oxford Mills – March 2018
Kim worked with us on and off for 3 years. She was fabulous and seriously went above and beyond what other real estate agents have done. She was very honest and kept us on track to point out important significant information and helped us not to worry about semantics. She was an absolute pleasure to work with as she knew what our needs and limitations were and found many houses to suit them. This is the second house we bought thanks to Kim. She is an awesome agent and individual.
–A.K. from Spencerville – March 2018
From the first contact a year ago to the final visit yesterday and every call and visit in between Emily and Clayton were personable, patient, and professional taking the time to clarify matters, answer my many questions and provide honest advice. We were provided with options and well guided through the process. Selling a home can be stressful but they helped minimize that stress with good advice and timely intervention and responses. We really appreciated the honest advice. The Oldford Team came highly recommended and we are happy that we chose to stay local. There was never any reluctance on Emily’s part to come out late at night to present offers and in spite of tight timelines, we were never rushed.
–T.H. & A.H. from South Mountain – March 2018
Nathan went above and beyond, he answered every question and was very good at responding to my excessive emails. During my house sale I had the pleasure of speaking with Clayton and Kim as well and would definitely use Oldford Team for any future house purchases.
–A.K from Finch – February 2018

We’ve worked with many agents over the years, but none can compare with the Oldford Team. Their honesty, knowledge of the area and attention to detail put them far above the others. We would not hesitate to recommend them or use their services again. We are very happy customers!!”

“Our house is a century home – very charming but with features in keeping with its age – e.g. wood siding, wooden sash windows, older septic field, rubble basement. The Oldford Team were able to direct people who were especially interested in an older, more unique property who would appreciate its special qualities. We thank them for their sensitivities to the situation. We were very pleased with our choice of the Oldford Team to sell our house. Everyone was easy to get along with, very knowledgeable, professional, and reliable in making and keeping appointments, etc. We would and have recommended them to others.”
–L.M. & D.M. from Inkerman – November 2016
“I didn’t have a chance to contact you previously concerning the purchase process that we have recently concluded together. I truly wanted to thank you for the extreme professionalism that you demonstrated throughout the process. I really appreciate the time and effort that you put into such a small transaction. I felt like i was a million dollar customer, and i wanted you to know that i will recommend you and your brokerage to all that i speak with. I especially appreciate the little things especially the names of the contractors, and whether i really wanted that property.”
–J.B from Bourget – November 2016
“The Oldford Team really strive to be the best of the best, not only in real estate but in being real down to earth people! Nathan and Clayton are both very friendly with easy smiles and I felt immediately at ease with both of them.
Clayton, your positive attitude, high energy, and knowledge of the business really impressed me. I enjoyed working with you. I really appreciate all the hard work that went into selling my home and realize that behind the scenes you both worked twice as hard as evidenced by the quick sale of my home. I am very grateful and so happy that I chose you for my real estate needs.
Thank you so much!”

“It is with great pleasure that my wife and I write this letter of appreciation Butch and Clyaton Oldford of Royal LePage Gale Real Estate for their efforts in the marketing and sale of my family’s home in Winchester, ON. They were more than agents. They put personal attention to the property and assisted in every facet of the sale process. I know first hand how hard they worked in making sure the sale proceeded to a successful conclusion for both Purchasers and Seller. Due to time constraints and work schedules, it was difficult for my wife and I to be available in Winchester on short notice but with the help of Butch and Clayton we managed to keep the sale process moving forward and get the home prepared for the new Purchasers. Without their help in moving furnishings to women’s shelters, food to the Food Bank and countless runs to the local dump site, we would never have met the close deadline of today.
While we worked hard at getting everything ready I’m not sure we would have survived without Butch bringing us a morning coffee from Tim Horton’s. As a Banker and Manager of Commercial Mortgages/Real Estate, I’ve had an opportunity to be involved in many real estate transactions over the past twenty five years and know from past experience the work effort and sound real estate acumen displayed by Butch and Clayton Oldford was well beyond what is delivered by most real estate professionals.
I am pleased to say Butch and Clayton became friends as well as our real estate agents. Royal LePage Gale Real Estate is fortunate to have such dedicated people working with them. I am pleased to provide this Letter and would be pleased to recommend their service to anyone requiring the services of true real estate professionals who take great pride in their work. Butch and Clayton…on behalf of my wife’s cousin, my wife, and myself – THANK YOU”
– R. C. from Toronto – January 2007
“It is with great pleasure that I write this note to you. I have been fortunate to have acquired the services of one of your Realtors. I am in the process of relocating from the Toronto area to Ottawa for work. The entire process of moving is one I have worked hard to avoid as I usually have my family look at houses and then I go in to make the final decision. So, given that I am the only one currently in Ottawa all of the searching was left to me. Not a task that I looked forward to especially after having dealt with several Realtors from the Ottawa area in an effort to find someone that understood my needs.”
– T. C. from Limoges – Summer 2007
“We wanted to extend a most sincere thank you to Butch and Clayton for the wonderful job you did selling our home. We know it was not easy, we know we were a bit stressed and we know how much hard work and many hours you put in to doing this for us. We appreciate how you both handled things so well and put up with the many concerns, questions and headaches that went along with the job.
Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts. We are so glad to have sold our home to somebody who will appreciate it as much as we do and we are so glad we had your team working for us.”
– S.L. from Winchester
