Don't take our word for it, hear it from our students

I want to write a testimonial about Maureen as a landlady but that doesn't do her justice so I am going to tell my story instead. I was an international student at the University of Toronto who was new to Canada. I had moved into one of Maureen's rental units just two weeks after I immigrated to Canada. I was young, naive, nervous and home sick because I had moved from my home country at a really young age. Maureen realized this and took me under her wing in every sense of the phrase. She gave me a place to stay in her home, brought me into her family and provided me with guidance and support when I needed it. I lived with Maureen for just about 5 years and in that time had grown from that naive boy to a graduate and a new home owner. Maureen had a big role to play in that. Maureen is not just a great landlady she is an amazing person who continually does for others. We have kept in touch till today.  She is as I say to everyone my 'Canadian Mummy'. - Jimi Olu-Ayeni (Nigeria)

Thanks Moe for all the thoughtful ways you give from the heart.  I felt at home, especially when you showed up with muffins and chocolates for us. You are awesome and I would definitely recommend this place to my friends. - Sharon Barceló (Montreal)

I stayed at Maureen’s house for 4 years.  When I came to Canada as an international student, it was overwhelming and I just wanted a safe, quiet and nice place to stay.  Maureen’s house was the best choice for me.  It was always clean since we had a cleaning lady and my four years of university went by fast since the place felt like home.  Maureen is a very good person, she helped me a lot since I was new to the country and the culture was different.  Maureen always cared for me and made sure I was happy in the house.  Thank you Maureen for being an awesome landlady!  I enjoyed living at Dover Crescent. - Shena Neermul (Mauritius)
