Betty was an amazing realtor to work with. It was my first time dealing with a realtor and I will never go back. Even though she was helping me with a rental at this time, Betty was professional, kind, and flexible to my schedule. She was always friendly and, most importantly, honest to me about what my expectations should be based on the housing market. She delivered to her promises and I am forever grateful for my beautiful condo.
Choosing a realtor is a very important decision. Anyone can take you to look at houses, but it takes someone with insight, deep understanding and persistence to find a home. Betty has it all. In spades.
With patience, encouragement and valuable knowledge, Betty guided me to prepare my house for resale and maximize its value. I'm thrilled to say my house sold for over asking, at a record neighbourhood price in only 5 days.
My situation was somewhat unique with logistical challenges. Betty had a complete understanding and together we were able to execute an effective and time sensitive plan to sell.
I highly recommend Betty to effectively and efficiently sell your home.
To whom it may concern,
I had the great pleasure of meeting Betty at an open house she was hosting. While the house in question didn’t work out, meeting Betty certainly did! When it came time to list my house, I certainly didn’t need to go searching for agents; Betty was hands down the only choice.
While researching the local real estate market, I had the opportunity to meet many agents, and none impressed the way Betty did. Her knowledge of the market, not only of pricing but of the factors that drive that pricing, made it clear that she had the experience and knowledge I needed on my side.
I can only say that based on my experience working with Betty, I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone buying or selling in this market. It’s vitally important to work with an agent that you can trust, and who makes it clear that your interests are paramount. Betty Bartusevicius is that agent.
"Betty is no slouch when it comes to great customer service. She knows her stuff...and she is lovely to work with. Very attentive to detail and follow-up and she very hard working. We gladly endorse her services."

Mortgage Agent at Mortgage Intelligence
We were in search of our very first home and were referred to Betty through one of our friends who had recommended her. It was a long hunting process with many different neighbourhoods in our initial search pool but her knowledge of all the areas that we were potentially interested in helped us focus our search to specific neighbourhoods that she knew would be the absolute best areas we could find at our price range.
She spent a lot of time getting to know us and what we were looking for in a house/property and we never had a doubt that she was always acting in our best interest. If we weren't sure whether it was worth looking at a specific home all we needed to do was ask Betty and she would immediately look into getting us extra information about this property, often taking a trip to the property herself in advance. She ensured that our journey was as stress-free as possible as she was always in contact, promptly answered every question we had along the way and made sure that we completely understood every single step that we were taking whenever moving forward.
We could not have been happier being introduced to Betty as we are confident that nobody else could have done a better job at getting us into the home that has ended up being so perfect for us.
-Adam & Kelsey
We bought our first home with Betty, and our second with her as well. The entire process, both times, have been very positive. Betty worked for us and represented our best interest at all times. She explained every step of the process and listened to our needs and wants. She is genuine, honest and professional, who works with superior integrity. A realtor like Betty is extremely difficult to come by. Cindy and Adrian
Betty is one of a very few award winning Mississauga Real Estate Agents who instills in her clients the confidence to make the right purchase or sale decision. She achieves this by being hands on during the entire purchase process and demonstrating a superior knowledge of real estate matters and by educating her buyers and sellers in Mississauga, Toronto, Oakville, and Burlington.
We are finally first time home owners, all thanks to Betty Bartusevicius. Although it was a long search (approx. 6 months) we found the home of our dreams. It was our first time searching for a home, first time putting in an offer and Betty made it a very stress free period for us both.
Betty always came prepared with enough detail to view a home comfortably; we always had enough background information about the general area, the neighborhood, and the home itself. We never once found ourselves questioning Betty’s opinion and always found she was acting in our best interest.
As first time home buyers, this is exactly what I expected from our real estate agent.
Finding the right home to suit our needs and our wish list, met our every expectation even then, Betty always kept in mind the future resale of the home and always had the background information for us in case we brought up any questions.
She was very diligent about the getting us the information that we needed and was by our side every step of the home buying process. Even after all our paperwork was complete, she offered her assistance to us continuously and became a friend instead of just another agent once our home was purchased.
Very diligent, detail orientated professional real estate agent. We will definitely stay in touch, thanks again Betty for finding us our perfect home.
Alice & Mike P.
My wife and I are grateful to have had Betty leading the charge of finding us a home. There are several good agents in the city and I would contend that Betty is one of the best for several reasons. She is professional, caring and well informed about the different neighborhoods in Mississauga.
1. She spent time understanding our needs. This meant showing us condos, townhomes, semis and detached homes, to get a feel for our preferences from layouts to finishes.
2. She previewed homes for us once she understood our needs. Both my wife and I work and the only time we could see properties was well into the evening.
3. Patience and experience: Betty has an uncanny ability to focus on the big picture while diving into the details when necessary. There were times, as a first time home buyer, when we were in a rush to put in an offer and Betty was always able to provide us an overall perspective to make an informed decision.
I would highly recommend her to all of our friends and anyone looking for a quality agent to find them a home. Thank you Betty for all of your efforts.
Betty was really helpful in assisting me to purchase my first house. She explained the process in complete details, making sure not to rush any parts of the decision. She was always straight forward and sincere in all her comments. She also made herself available at the last minute to visit properties, and this over and above customer service proved key to closing the house of our dreams. Betty also proved to be excellent with negotiations skills and tactics, to obtain a fair price for the house. She is also well connected within the industry, with home inspectors, etc. I would not hesitate to recommend her to any new clients.
Louis Philippe Audette, President Rational Canada
Betty was the best Realtor we ever dealt with and we were totally delighted with her services. She was always responsible, professional and competent. She is very friendly, honest and made what can be a really stressful experience much more pleasant.
It was piece of mind that we were in good hands.
She was able to answer many questions in a timely manner due to her experience in the real estate market.
She helped us find the perfect house and gave us this right advice throughout our house hunting experience.
Betty, thanks for everything. We highly recommend Betty to be your Realtor!
Dr. Khin Myat and Mrs. Thida Han
"Betty had demonstrated a lot of interest to assist us with our new home research. She is very professional and an excellent advisor in her field. She takes care of her clients and keeps in touch. Even in areas which she is not the expert, she did introduce us to her colleague, in order to get us the best advice. I would recommend Betty to anyone and definetely work with her in the future."
We met Betty in the summer of 2010 at an open house in Mississauga. This house was priced well above our budget but Betty made us feel welcome and comfortable. Before we left we told her what we were looking for and that we wanted to move between May and August of 2011.
Betty kept in touch with us and in February we decided we were ready to move and asked her to list our house. She gave us advice on how to have it ready for the market. It was sold three days after putting it on the market.
Our search for a new house began in mid March. We were anxious to find a home before going on our previously planned vacation in April. Betty’s words to us were ... “leave it to Betty; I assure you I will find you a home that you like before you go on vacation”. Sure enough, her promise to us was fulfilled.
Betty’ knowledge of the market and of our needs allowed her to find a house that was “loved at first sight”. She then assisted in ensuring that all aspects of the transaction were completed to our satisfaction. We are now settled in our new home and we are pleased to say that Betty has kept in touch and visited us regularly.
We would recommend Betty to anyone who is looking to sell or purchase a home. Betty, you are a great agent. Well done.
John and Olive
Betty was a very hands on professional that always kept my needs and wants in consideration.
I was looking for a house that needed to be near a preferred school, and Betty made that happen.
Betty made sure to remind me of details that not only pertained to my house purchase, but the school requirements as well. She was on top of every aspect of making sure the purchase was successful. And with my busy schedule, I appreciate the extra attention to the detail. Knowing that she was on my side during final negotiations made me realize what an asset she was. I am quite sure I got the best deal possible in my home purchase. I would use Betty again in a heart beat.
We met Betty at an open house on our street. I was being nosy, and if truth be told, not really interested in buying or selling a home.
But, here we are, almost a year later, and not only has Betty found, and helped us purchase our "dream home" but listed and sold our current house in just one day.
After that first meeting, I would never have thought the she would become the best agent we have had the privilege of working with. Her honesty, knowledge, and professionalism (not to mention her wicked sense of humour!) got us through the stresses of buying and selling. Not only did we find a great agent, in Betty we found a great friend.
Sarah, Dave and Andrew
I met Betty Bart as she was starting an OPEN HOUSE on Whiteoaks Blvd. We began talking and I mentioned that we might be interested in selling if we found the right house to move into.
A strong association and bond between Betty and me was forming. Little did we know how far it would take us...
Betty showed my husband and me many houses (all west of Mississauga) in Burlington, Waterdown, Oakville, Guelph, etc. It then came to us that we should be searching east of the city (to be closer to both our families).
Betty put me in touch with a great realtor in Cobourg and the rest of the buying process was history.
However, the selling process was another issue all together! For over a year, Betty was working on selling my house. She kept me informed. She was constantly showing it to prospective buyers. She walked the property with untold buyers and builders, and she checked on my house continually after I had moved to Cobourg. All the time, she called and kept my spirits up. She held my hand in hers.
Betty is a very special person and I was happy to have her as my realtor. I have recommended her to friends and will do so anytime with the knowledge that she will do a good job and put her heart and soul into any real estate work she undertakes.
Thank you, Betty
I remember meeting Betty. It was a Sunday in November at one of the open houses she had hosted in Mississauga and it was closing in 15 mins. We were not serious buyers at the time because we had wanted to check out what was in the market. We had planned to sell our home first before purchasing the next one. She had offered her services to us knowing we were in the first stages of just looking. She had told us she would find the perfect home for us and would work hard to do so even with the market being a sellers market.
The inventory was scarce. I would have hired her to sell our home in Guelph but she was honest to tell us it was out of her territory. Instead she had recommended the best agent in Guelph to help sell our home. We had sold our home in 5 days at asking price. We were now ready for Betty to find us a home in less than 45 days. The market was dry and we were about to take off for our winter vacation for a week, which was stressful on my husband and I, not knowing if we would find the perfect layout in the new home. I was very adamant to have the same open concept layout as my last home. It was important for me to find a home with a large eat in kitchen.
Betty always showed us new listings of homes that immediately came out, even with the inventory being so low. There was always something my husband and I could not agree on regarding the layout. Betty was always extremely patient, and listened to our comments. Betty worked around our hours and continued to check for new listings, with our concerns in mind. She compelled us not to settle on our dream home, as we were feeling desperate to just find a home within the time remaining. When we found our dream home, Betty worked relentlessly to make the deal happen. She always provided updates on the status of the negotiation.
Throughout the experience with Betty, she was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and had always answered her phone promptly. She is a very compassionate person and a hard working dedicated real estate agent. My husband and I would highly recommend her to our friends and family.
Michelle and Mika
We want to thank you very much for all your hard work. We really appreciate the effort you have put in to helping us find a home in Lorne Park, Mississauga. From our first meeting in June 2009 until our move in date, fast approaching in February 2010, we have been delighted with the service and attention you have provided. At no time have you pressured us or made us feel in any way obligated. We are very happy to have you as our agent and we feel that above all, you have been dedicated to representing our interests.
As newcomers to the GTA, we considered many options as we explored and slowly began to understand the housing market in this area. You arranged and accompanied us on many viewings, too many to remember an exact number. You were always patient and never tried to push us into any decisions. Your honest opinion was always very valuable and on many occasions you were able to draw our attention to things we might have missed; (pros and cons of different locations; resale potential; assessment values; comparisons; features or structural concerns; school boundaries; etc.) You scheduled appointments and took us on housing tours, venturing out on numerous days, evenings, weekends and holidays to show us a wide range of properties so that we could get a good understanding of the market.
We were able to draw on your wealth of knowledge and expertise in the Mississauga area and access a number of resources through your website www.bettybart.com , your email updates and listings, as well as your network of contacts, (agents and contractors,) all which really helped with our search. We are especially thankful for the number of times you were able to get us in to a new listing ‘first’ – ahead of other buyers. This certainly was a key factor in our final purchase.
We are very happy with the home we have bought and feel that we have done well in a very competitive market. We have everything we wanted on our wish list and we do not feel that we have over paid. At times, we felt we would never find the perfect place but you always reassured us, you would not let us settle for second best or over extend ourselves financially and when we could not find a place to buy before we had to move out of our rental property, you helped us in our search for temporary accommodation.
For all of this Betty, we are very grateful and indebted to you and we would be honoured to recommend you to future clients.
All our best wishes and kindest regards,
Wendy & Richard McIntyre
When I needed to sell my condo, I searched the internet for an agent and was quickly drawn to Betty. She had experience selling in my area so I thought I would give her a call. She was efficient in setting up our first meeting, and arrived prepared and ready to sell. I found her to be very personable, knowledgeable, and friendly, and more importantly, she knew how to put my mind at ease immediately. My condo was on the market for two days, I received multiple offers right away, and with Betty's guidance and diligence, my condo was sold on the second day! I am so appreciative of her hard work and dedication, and would absolutely recommend her to anyone!
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
In early September, we decided to move ahead on our plans to sell our Mississauga home of 29 years.
As you might expect, we were quite ignorant of all the requirements of this complicated process. We considered several options including selling without a real estate agent.
By chance, my wife dropped into an open house event in our own neighbourhood, where she met Betty Bartusevicius (Betty Bart for short), who struck a very good impression. When our final decision was made we decided to interview several agents.
Betty attended our home and in the span of one hour we were convinced to utilize her services; no further interviews were necessary.
Betty guided us through the “showing” requirements, providing her expert advice on just how to prepare. Bottom line, our house was sold in less that one week from the sign being placed on our lawn, with Betty assisting in the negotiations for an acceptable deal.
Without hesitation, we openly offer our recommendation of Betty for any real estate needs. She is a true professional and a pleasure to work with.
We found out about Betty by chance on the internet, when we first started to research about purchasing our first home, that was about 3 years ago. Three years ago does seem like a long time to find our home, but that was mostly on our end, as we kept putting it off and on. During all of this Betty was the best to work with, she never pressured us but always kept us up-to-date with the current market. Betty was very easy going, friendly and very professional. She took us to see several homes, and because we were extremely picky it did take a while for us to find a home that we truly liked, and Betty always said to us "don't worry I will find you guys a house." Betty did find us not just a house but a home that truly felt like ours from the moment we walked into it. She also recommended our mortgage broker who was excellent. In the future I look forward to working with Betty again and I also recommend working with her if you are in the process of buying or purchasing a home.
Thank you Betty for all your help, we love our new home and we are happy that we waited this long to get exactly what we were looking for.
Thanks, Julien, Vanessa and Kaden.
Working with Betty was such a pleasure and delight. From day one, we knew that Betty had our best interest at heart and made sure to assist us with getting the house that we wanted. She took care of us and made us feel 100% confident in her abilities and knowledge. Throughout the entire purchase process, she was always keeping us updated with timely responses around the clock. She not only eased the process of purchasing a home for us, she made it fun. We would use Betty again in an instant and will recommend her to our friends and families.
Adrian Pearson and Cindy Chu
To current and future home sellers and buyers,
If anyone is now involved in either a purchase or a sale, or will be shortly, then you know how potentially tiring and frustrating the process can be: a veritable emotional roller coaster! Our family recently sold our house with Betty’s help. Betty’s energy, determination, and overall positive outlook made this ordeal more pleasant than it could have been considering the hard economic times—and certainly more pleasant than when we purchased this same house nine years ago.
But more importantly than the soft skills of making the whole thing feel better, she drove to the result. Ultimately, this is what we wanted and she got it done in a respectable time frame. I would recommend Betty’s services to anyone going through this. She gets it done, works tirelessly, and has a bunch of fun along the way.
Betty was amazing to work with! She made us feel very comfortable at all times and was always there for us when we had any questions or concerns. She is also a very fun and outgoing person and that is really good when you are going through situations as stressful as buying and selling a home. With her it was very stress free as she was always there for us and we never felt like she was too busy for us or had other more important clients. She was just awesome and we look forward to working with her on our next home purchase and sale.
Brenda and Scott
Betty Bart is a diligent and tireless worker. Betty worked hard to make our deal arrive at a reasonable and fair offer in these uncertain times. She guided us and found us a lawyer that had his office open the week between Christmas and New Years. I believe that her years of experience, her ability to read people’s body language makes her a valuable asset on anyone’s team to buy or sell property. When we first met at an open house she did not know that we were experienced home buyers. She read us like a book and allowed us to explore, make us aware of the property’s fine points and the value of purchasing such a property. Her professional demeanour on our first meeting was her strongest asset and gave us the confidence to choose her as our Purchasing agent. Throughout the purchasing negotiations, Betty kept us informed as to housing market conditions and I can only assume that her professionalism played a big role which proved to be a positive result.
Betty is a hands on type of person, her warm and comforting nature makes the housing experience one that is easy to complete. If and when time comes to sell the property we will certainly have Betty on our list as listing agent.
A friend referred us to Betty and her team. We found their services to be outstanding! Not only were they professional and knowledgeable, but their patience for our needs throughout the buying process were exceptional. We are so pleased with Betty's services on the purchase of our new home. Betty was prompt, friendly, available 24/7, listened and moved quickly on opportunities that became available. As a new couple, Betty took the time to listen carefully to our viewpoints, clarifying our needs and wants in a home and was quickly able to narrow down an overwhelming selection, which had led to finding our dream home in our first visit! Today she is still in touch with us, keeping us updated on market prices as similar units in our area are sold. She made our home purchase a really nice and stress-free experience. We would not hesitate to recommend Betty to anyone in need of realty services. – Susan and Nick
It is a lot different to deal with someone so professional at work, committed, honest and least but not last, coming with good advice. When it comes to buya a property there cannot be betther than Betty and her team of friendly members. I am a first time buyer and it was like a marthon for me to go through the process of buying a house in Canada but Betty was among the ones who helped me ease my way through. I am absolutely satisfied with her services and trust me, you will have a nice surprise after settling in your home.
Though money matters for alsmost most of us, dealing with Betty brought the human touch also, which made me more comfortable and gave me time to focus on the pros and cons of each potential property.
There are som many good things to say but I would like you, future home buyers to know this: "There can be many real estate agents, but not everyone is a professional".
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Betty, Asha and Kamal. They are truly a professional team of real estate agents. You get more out of the experience than you would expect and they are accessible at anytime for your needs and questions.
The process of buying my new home and selling my old property was seamless. They got me the price that I needed on my old house to be able to afford my new home. As well, they got me a great deal on the new home for thousands less than other properties in the area. My old home sold in less than 1 month of having it on the market. They held very professional open houses for me with fresh flowers, baked goods and beverages, also, I had people coming to view my home on a regular basis throughout the week thanks to their advertising and networking efforts.
They became like family to me. I had finishing touches to make to my basement sliding doors at the request of my buyer which Betty's husband out of the kindness of his heart came and completed for me one Sunday afternoon. Since I have moved into my new home they have been very supportive, offering to bring us dinner the evening we moved and even bringing thank-you gifts to us on a congratulatory symbol. To this day, months after I have moved in we still keep in touch!
I highly recommend this team for all your real estate needs, they are not only professional but supportive and have your best interests in mind.
Throughout the entire process, Betty was supportive and always available to answer our questions. She was empathetic when we put the "For Sale" sign in the lawn of our first home and was the first one there to congratulate us on our new home. We have since moved into a lovely home, perfect for the lifestyle that my husband and I enjoy. We appreciate all of Betty's hard work in making this transition through a sometimes confusing or difficult process
Kelly McBain and Mark Ratushniak
Nick and I were first time home buyers. We were very excited to get started, however we were also very anxious and unfamiliar with the process involved in buying a home. Betty was very knowledgeable of the real estate market and was excellent at explaining all the relevant information to us. She never pressured us to find a home quickly but instead was very patient and encouraged us to continue looking until we found our perfect home. She was very good at pointing out not only the benefits but also the drawbacks of various potential properties. Betty always made us her top priority. We are very grateful to have such a personable and professional real estate agent. We couldn't have asked for a better one. Thank you, Betty, for all your hard work. We will definitely use Betty again when we are ready to sell.
With great appreciation,
Nick and Karen
Betty was instrumental in providing a competent and relatively stress-free experience as she assisted my wife and I through the sale of our first home and the purchase of our existing home in the Sheridan Homelands area. Throughout our time with Betty she remained professional in her approach to working with other agents in the transactions that occurred between houses and made sure that our best interests remained paramount in her dealings.
Betty has a passionate personality when it comes to working in Real Estate and that was evident in her daily updates and attention to detail she provided to us throughout this process. We want to thank Betty for helping us through this experience and in the future would consider Betty as an agent again.
Shawn and Cherie Lancaster
As first time home buyers, we felt very overwhelmed. Then we found Betty who handled our "house hunting nightmares" with knowledge and skill. Aside from respecting our tight budget, Betty was also able to provide us with a selection of listings and guide us through our tough decisions. What astonished us was that Betty not only found us promising homes well outside the GTA (and office location) but she went beyond her job duties solely for our benefit. Our home search took months due to the fact that we were being so specific, but Betty gave us her full understanding and we never once felt pressured to make a sale. This made us feel comfortable and, in the end, we found a home with property that is more than we could have ever imaginged.
