If you are in need of realtors who truly put your best interest first then look no further.

Highly recommend Don and Jen if you are looking to buy or sell a property. They showed excellent attention to detail, expert knowledge of the area, and will put your needs first. It was refreshing to work with a realtor who is professional and always makes you feel like a top priority. Both Don and Jen were very sensible with the listings they showed me because they had a clear understanding of my financial situation and before everything we sat down and spoke about what my main ending goal was. They really made the experience so much better and so stress-free for me! Thank you both for everything!

He goes above and beyond for his clientele to ensure their best interests are the priority. Always will be the first name that pops in my head when I need a Realtor.
By: Andy M
We have purchased two homes with Don Lea, but I must say that Jen is the woman behind Don who makes things happen and they make a great team. Don is the techy guy who is on top of the newest way to promote your home with drones, videos and special effect photos. He is well liked and connected with many other agents because of his service to that community and his dedication to his family. A well rounded agent.
By: Paul B

Don took the stress out of selling our family home that we had been very emotionally attached to. He’s kind but professional and really knows his stuff! I wouldn’t trust anyone else to sell my home
Don was Professional and dilligent with our requests. He was so understanding through the selling and buying process of what we wanted, and was patient with us. He is Knowledgeable and informtive- he was very helpful with answering questions, and was very much so an advocate for us as his clients.

If you are looking for someone who will help you get top dollar then Don is definitely the guy you will want to use!! After 2 days on the market we got a offer way over asking I couldn't turn down, Don convinced me that he thinks I should wait it out. After a few more days we had reveived 10 offers and got wayyyy over the offer I didnt want to turn down. Don is definitely the best in the business.

He knew about all the surrounding areas . He is from Brantford , but knew everything he needed to know about Port Dover, Simcoe , Langton , Port Rowan and Delhi that was in our points of interest . He was up on everything there was to know on laws , building and codes and so on , the list goes on . Even thought Don is very professional in his job we formed a bond of friendship and trust with Don . Walter and I would recommend Don for your buying and selling needs .

By: Natalie P
I can’t say enough good things about Don! During the nerve-wracking time of selling our first home, Don was the one who always kept us informed, and well taken care of. He knows the true value of customer service and treats his clients like family. I knew I could trust him with this process and we couldn’t be happier!
By: Ms. Poulin
Second time using Don Lea. He explains everything well, gives me the autonomy to sit in the drivers seat....yet led the show when I did not have the capacity due to work (ie: virtual permit inquiries & home inspection visit). Buying a home during the pandemic was flawless with Don.
By: Jennifer Y
Don goes above and beyond for his clients! He’s very knowledgeable and always has his clients best interest in mind. Don sold our house a few years ago and it was an absolute pleasure working with him. I highly recommend him! We are clients for life!
By: Ground2Air Media
I've had the opportunity to shoot photos and video for Don for a few years now. If you're looking for someone who goes above and beyond on their marketing then look no further. Don takes social media marketing very seriously and is always looking for ways to get your listing the most exposure possible. Great guy and a great friend!
Don sold our first home last year in less than 5 days and helped us find our new home. He was always available to answer any questions we had along the way and took the time to explain next steps in detail. Don is very knowledgeable and professional and I would highly recommend him to our friends and family. Thank you Don!
By: Saffi H
Don sold our house and helped us buy our dream home. He was a seasoned negotiator and helped us get the best possible price for our home and helped in all areas of our new purchase. He is very detailed oriented, knowledgeable of all areas of the real-estate transaction and connected in the community. He helped get a house inspector, and even helped get into the new home when the movers showed up early. He is consummate professional that will go out of his way to ensure your purchase or sale meets and exceeds your expectations.
By: Nicole L
Don Lea is truly amazing to work with, from the countless hours viewing houses, to the exceptional advice on both buying and selling. It goes without saying that “it’s got to be Don Lea”. We are forever grateful for the time and patience that Don has continually offered. If 100 stars were an option, it would not be enough to express how much I truly appreciate all the time you put in, and all you do to have helped our dream house become a reality. Forever grateful.
By: Cheryl V
About a month ago I contacted Don to start the process of acquiring a new home. Since then, he not only found me the house of my dreams, he made it a reality! Don worked tirelessly and strategically to sell my current property in less than 2 weeks for full asking price, and made sure I got a great price on my new home. I think what sets Don apart is his one of a kind strategic approach. This requires a degree of trust, but I can promise you - if you put your trust in him you won't regret it! I was very impressed by not only his knowledge of the market, but his savvy use of technology and social media to reach buyers well beyond the standard listing on MLS. If you're looking to buy or sell in the Brantford or Norfolk area, this is 100 percent the guy you need for an outcome above and beyond your expectations!
By: Jessica F
Honestly, we can’t thank Don enough. All of my fears and sleepless nights thinking about the hassle of putting our house on the market went right out the window the second we decided to list with It’s Gotta Be Don Lea. He is so honest and down to earth and definitely went above and beyond in order to sell our house in a timely manner. He sold our house in 2 days for well over asking price! It was a better outcome than I could have ever imagined. I’ll be recommending Don to anyone who will listen!
By: Emily H
I have been wanting to sell my house for some time now and Don encouraged me that everything would work out great! Don was more than amazing. I could write a review for an hour on how happy we where with Don, but we will get to the point fast. Don is one of the most patient, kind and understanding realestate agents we have ever encountered! He found someone to take amazing pictures for us of the house! And of course Don sold my house! Don is very knowledgeable, full of great ideas, and an expert in his field!!! . If you looking for the absolutely perfect realtor Its Gotta Be Don Lea would be the greatest and smartest choice!
By: Jen D
Don Lea is one of a kind! Our family was lucky enough to have his guidance and expertise while looking for our rental property. Don explained purchasing processes extremely well and his knowledge and swift actions has left our family of 5 more than delighted. We highly recommend Don Lea!
By: Dan B
Anyone looking for a realtor needs to use Jen!!! We've done numerous real estate deals in the past with other realtors and some were really good while others we wouldn't recommend but Jen stands out above them all. The thing with Jen is that there really wasn't any incentive for her to perform as well as she did, BUT SHE DID!! She listened to our wants and needs while continuously suppling us with listings. Also, she was available for discussion at all times and met numerous times with my family and I to look at houses knowing that we were only going to rent. We just sold our house and want to wait out the pandemic to see how the market will play. So because of her amazing efforts, she now has new buyers in the future. 10/10!!!!!!
By: Johnathan S
Came across Don Lea back in August, set up a time to meet and view a property. Don was able to accommodate my schedule and set up a appointment with in a couple of days. Don worked with me on a unique family situation, could not of asked for a more professional and compassionate Realtor that understood the sensitivity involved. Don was able to work around all the obstacles and set backs with a smile on his face. Don explained everything clearly and simply. Don was able to closely predict the rough outcome (month before it went on market, Don was right ). Don worked endlessly over the week the house was on the market with what seemed like endless showings. The home sold in one week and 9.8% over asking price. Could not be happier with the out come , as I have never work with any Realtor I,can say this was a walk in the park. I would 100% recommend Don Lea to my friends and family , could not asked for a better experience. Thank you again Don, you're amazing.
By: Ryan P
Don always goes above and beyond for my listings. Always a positive attitude and straight forward, he doesn’t hide anything. We always bounce ideas off each other and that’s important in my books. His videos and photos are some of the best in the business. Thanks again Don.
By: Stephanie and James C
Amazing to work with. Excellent with his clients. Knows what he is doing. Truly knowledgable. Professional. 100% recommend working with him!!
By: Eric A
We’ve dealt with Don for two listings in 3 years. Both times Don was able to manage our marketing to generate huge interest. With both sales we received multiple offers in within days of listing. Don went over all of them, weighed in on pros and cons, and helped us to reach a decision we felt great about. He is quick to act, easy to get a hold of, and pays attention to all the little details that a professional should. I would recommend Don to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Brantford area.
By: Cindy V
Don Lea and his wife, Jennifer Babister, have ALWAYS been our go-to, when it comes to buying, and selling our homes! We’ve used their services for a number of years. They are both very honest, straight forward, knowledgeable, and informative people. What more could you ask for? We will always recommend them both to our friends, and family, and will continue to do so. #itsgottabedonleaandjennyb. Check out their Instagram and Facebook. The proof is in the pudding, people! Even their videographer is amazing. I swear my house sold over asking because of how he captured it! What a great team. Thanks so much, Don Lea and Jennifer!!!
By: Sue V
Many thanks to Don for his expertise and knowledge in dealing with the sale of our mom's house, recently. He was very accommodating in his work and handling of the conference calls with our family members who live hours away. Don in very down-to-earth, patient, kind and attentive and genuinely cares about his clients and their happiness. We would highly recommend Don.
By: Mike P
Selling a home can be an anxious endeavour. Doing so during COVID-19 can be downright nauseating. But thanks to Don Lea, he kept us calm during the whole process. He would call to check in on us daily (often times more than once). We were always aware of what was happening at each stage of the process. His dedication, professionalism, and communication are second to none. He treated us with the utmost respect and always gave sound advice for any decisions that had to be made. We trusted him throughout and that trust was well placed. I would highly recommend Don if you are selling your home. We are certainly happy and grateful that he was with us when we did.
By: Tammy R
Choosing Don to sell our house was the best decision we could have made. Selling during this pandemic was an emotional roller coaster and Don was with us every step of the way. He was very supportive and ALWAYS available to us. Answered all of our questions ASAP and always called to see how we were doing. We would definitely use Don again and would highly recommend him. Thanks Don ツ

What an absolutely amazing experience. Don made listing and selling our house a very easy and comfortable transaction. We received multiple offers within a week of listing. He is incredibly thorough, dependable and reliable! We HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!-
By: Bill T
Don Lea was very helpful with every aspect of the sale of my home. It all started from the first meeting when Don explained the process of listing the property and how the process of showing the property would be done as well he was comprehensive on the details of how offers were given and clear explanations of the steps of closing. He was easy to understand with clear, concise details as I was new to this process. I would recommend Don to anyone thinking of selling their home. He was very professional and made me feel at ease through the whole process. Thank you very much Don
By: Nateara W
In the beginning of fall 2019 Don helped us both sell our home and buy our current home that we will be in forever! In selling our home, Don helped us sell within 48 hrs (with an over asking amazing offer we couldn’t refuse) and in buying our current home Don had great advice, told us of some cautionary items and was full of encouragement and confidence! We trusted in Don to get us what we wanted and needed and he did -he listens to us and our ideas, wants and needs. He goes above and beyond, answers all questions and all the questions we still have for him today. He is always willing to lend an ear and lend advice as he sees fit! We highly recommend Don Lea! It’s GOTTA be Don Lea!!
By: Eric G
Don went above and beyond to help us with the purchase of our first home (which we thought would not be possible in a time like this). He is very knowledgeable and continues to respond to any questions or concerns we have and always follows up to see how things are going. It is without doubt that Don truly cares for his clients and ensures that the process of purchasing/selling a home goes as smooth as possible. We HIGHLY recommend Don and he deserves more than 5 stars ! Don, we can't thank you enough for all the work you have done for us !-
By: Yukari C
Don and Jeniffer😊👍 They are a phenomenal! They are super friendly and comfortable to work with. They helped us to purchase and sell the house with their magical power! I really recommend them!!! Their service is above and beyond.
We have had the pleasure of working with Don for our last two house sales/purchases and each time he has hit a home run. Don has never steered us wrong when it comes to this very fast pace market. Don has shown time and time again that he is amazing at what he does. I know there are a lot of agents out there, but if you want the best in the business, do yourself a favor and call Don Lea, you wont be disappointed.
By: Jennifer C
Both Don and Jenn are amazing people and great at what they do! Jenn helped me find my last home when I was under significant time pressure. Then less than a year later, they again helped my sudden “maybe I should consider selling” idea come to life! They both worked with my crazy schedule and in just 2 weeks had sold my home for significantly over asking, and found my perfect new home in my perfect location! Thanks for everything guys!! Again!
By: Gerald S
Don and Jen are an amazing team, they listened and understood our concerns and expectations. They did their homework, delivered and put in place their marketing strategy for our home. During the sales period they kept us in the loop and provided updates that eased our minds during a stressful time. Our home sold well over asking in a matter of days. Professional from start to finish and a pleasure to work with, I strongly recommend anyone looking for Real Estate representation call Don and Jen
By: Darryl M
We are first time sellers. Our experience with Don And Jen was flawless. They were there every step of the way answering any questions we had. We truly felt supported throughout the entire process.
