“Honesty is the best policy. If I lose mine honour, I lose myself.”  William Shakespeare

To my clients and friends whom I have had the absolute pleasure of working with in the last 16 years.  Thank you for the following kind words  - Betty Ann DeWitt

"We are so pleased that we chose to work with Betty Ann to sell our historic home. We knew we could rely on her to work hard for us and get the best deal and we knew that where many agents will grudgingly go the extra mile, Betty Ann will run it, full-pace!"

    We've had the pleasure of working with Betty Ann Dewitt for the purchase of our new home in Fox River. At every point Betty Ann was readily available to assist, honest and helpful, and extremely knowledgeable. Her pleasant personality and experience have made what could be a stressful time into a pleasure, and I would  recommend her to any family and friends.
" We bought our house at a distance - in our case from the UK - We already knew the area we wanted to purchase in, and found the property on Betty Ann's website. Betty Ann could not have been more helpful and friendly through the whole transaction and steered us through all the hurdles, helped us with  lists of lawyers etc.  Since we purchased she has been doing after sales service! Something you don't get from every realtor - in terms of keeping an eye on the house when she passes. hooking us up with someone to keep the lawn down, and providing interior shots of the house from all sorts of angles to help us choose furnishings. She has also linked me to another realtor in New Brunswick who I have  listed a parcel of land with. I am confident to ask her any supplementary questions knowing they'll be answered with charm and in detail.  I cannot recommend her highly enough.

When planning to sell our house in Parrsboro we spoke with several friends and acquaintances who all recommended that we list our house with Betty Ann DeWitt. Now that the sale has taken place, we can see why she comes so highly recommended.  We found Betty Ann to be a pleasure to work with and now we can be added to the ever growing list of those who highly recommend her as a top notch realtor.

Hello prospective buyers and sellers:  After holidaying in Nova Scotia and falling in love with the area, we decided to retire here.  We found Betty Ann's website to be clear and informative. When we phoned and e-mailed Betty Ann she was most helpful.  Once we arrived in Nova Scotia we found her to be knowledgeable, reliable, professional and most of all honest. She was always ready, willing and able to go over and above the call of duty. She always made herself available, either in person or by answering or returning all phone calls and e-mails. Therefore if you are looking for a fair and honest real estate agent who is a credit to her profession we strongly recommend you call Betty Ann first.

(p.s. after the sale you will be pleased to number her among your closest friends)

Sincerely Peter and Cynthia Curtis, New Salem, Nova Scotia (Formerly Ontario)

Your taking the time for day trips, even the perceptive you had arranging lodging out of season for us was such a reassurance! Showing us the neighbourhood from shopping ,dining, exploring breathtaking scenery to the serenity of a babbling brook on which to fish was such a breath of fresh air, that spoke "We are home!" Betty-Ann from your comprehensive website with descriptive pictures, to answering the smallest of questions, John and I had a wonderful feeling about leaving on this trip! Thank you for your honesty, sincerity, and the warm welcoming you gave us making our dreams a reality!

Having never visited Nova Scotia but keen to buy a property in Canada, from all the enquiries I made it was Betty Ann who provided us with the most help and information .  This led us to Parrsboro and a year later, when we were ready to view,  it was Betty Ann who showed us the town and area and gave us all the information we needed for us to make our choice.  Providing us with help and support right the way through and well after our purchase, I would not hesitate in recommending her to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home in this area.

Betty Ann DeWitt is the most trustworthy Real Estate agent we have ever worked with. In our 15 years of home ownership and selling , we have never come across a more honest person in the business . This is particularly important to our situation as we are buying from the United States and would not have made the purchase if we did not feel 100% confident in our agents integrity.
We looked at quite a few homes and Betty Ann was a great help in guiding us in the right direction. She knows the area and the history and was very informative about the WHERE, WHAT, AND WHY of a sale.
Once the property was chosen and the contract signed , we visited the town of Parrsboro to meet and greet our new neighbors. How wonderful and kind everyone was is beyond words. Betty Ann helped us book our  week long stay at a discount, took care of our sight -seeing agenda ,and even baby-sat our son Oliver , so we could take care of banking and city hall records! She took us to the major city ,where the big malls are and took Oliver to Partridge Island for a little fun!
 She has provided us with every need from 1,000 miles away, legal, appraisal, contracting, etc..

Betty Ann was terrific to work with - over a two year period, she consistently let me know about properties which were coming on the market. When I eventually found a property I wanted, in 1997, she was extremely industrious and helpful about organizing the purchase. Most importantly, Betty Ann is honest.  I believe that this is the most important in business relationships.  Given my high regard for Betty Ann and her business ethics, I would be pleased to personally discuss my very
positive recommendation for her, with prospective clients.  Please feel free to call me at 1-416-481-4096 or e-mail me at liz@lizyorke.com.

"Honesty, integrity and hard work is a combination which is not easily found in our day and age.

Betty Ann was a great lady to work with.  We were
fortunate to find a realtor in the Parrsboro area who
not only knows the area well but goes all the way to
accommodate her clients.

Betty Ann is honest, ethical and a true professional.
Betty Ann was not about to 'get rich' off the sale of
our property - that didn't matter to her however - she
treated us like we were the only clients she had.

We live 'way out West' and had a difficult decision to
make - Betty Ann made it a lot less difficult, and we
thank her for that. 

Thanks again Betty Ann - you are a true professional
and we would recommend you to anyone looking to buy or
sell property in the Cumberland County area.

To Whom It May Concern:
