Jolanda & Chuck S.

Absolutely amazing. Bonnie was referred by a colleague to help sell my healthy senior mother’s house. Very personable, well spoken and professional. Several years later our daughter was ready to purchase a starter home. The market was hot and Bonnie spent the time, energy and knowledge to find a suitable home. Astounding job both times. Highly recommend and will definitely use her again.

Kelly & Darren C.

In 2021 we decided to sell our home and move across the country! It was a huge decision and a very stressful one for us. We had had a very bad experience with a realtor in the past and were very hesitant to list with one again. We decided to reach out to Bonnie and see what she had to say. She understood our concerns and helped us through the whole process. She was honest, transparent and had our best interests in mind. She was always available to answer questions and keep us informed of how things were going. Her professionalism and expertise are second to none! We would highly recommend her to anyone!

Sharon W. and Ted H.

For us selling our home was a bittersweet occasion. While it was time to move due to changing needs and work demands this didn’t alter the fact that the house we were leaving had been a home and special to us. When we began our search for a real estate agent we were intent on interviewing several, and after the first five minutes of meeting with Bonnie we knew she was the right agent for us. The connection was immediate. She understood not only our goals but also the emotional challenges we faced in leaving a place we had put our hearts into. She proactively gave us all the details on how selling would work and provided us with lists and contacts that could support us to prepare everything. She patiently answered questions and emails when we were concerned or frazzled, and she kept us up to date on the progress throughout. When the offers arrived she helped us understand the benefits of one over another and helped us make a choice that was right for us. It was hard to leave our special home, but in the end with Bonnie’s help the transition was a smooth and lovely experience. Our new house opened up so many possibilities for us and it has become a home quickly, and we know our old home is now in the hands of a new family ready to make memories they will cherish. Thank you Bonnie, you are wonderful to work with!

Lukas R.

Bonnie is excellent to work with! She’s diligent, attentive and hardworking, and has been pivotal in my purchases over the last few years. On multiple occasions she helped me to find exactly what I was looking for, and made the negotiating and signing process stress-free. She has kept me informed throughout any transaction, and is always available to answer my questions. She is caring and genuine, and knows that fostering long-lasting connections with clients is the way to build their trust. I would not hesitate to recommend Bonnie to anyone looking to buy or sell their property!

Katie M. and Steve M.

Bonnie came highly recommended and we were extremely glad to have her guidance through the buying and selling process. She was professional, knowledgable, considerate and patient. She listened to our needs and concerns to make sure we found the best home for our family. Bonnie was quick to respond when we needed her, and really went to bat for us when we dealt with multiple offers. We would use Bonnie as our realtor again in a heartbeat.

Jaimy C. and Carl F.

Bonnie helped us find our beautiful home in the most ideal neighbourhood. She was a pleasure to work with, professional and very knowledgeable. Rest assured that you’ll be in great hands. She’s also a really wonderful person to boot!

Caitlin A.

When we started to work with Bonnie we knew we needed a new property, but hadn’t quite settled on what we needed. Bonnie was incredibly patient with us, and showed us a wide variety of properties to help us decide. She was knowledgeable, kind, quick in her responses, and gave us space to make decisions while remaining engaged with us. She helped guide us through a huge decision with great support and skill. Thank you Bonnie!

Lori D.

Bonnie genuinely cares about her clients! I would refer her to others in a heartbeat. A pleasure to work with!

Courtney S. and Kyle P.

Bonnie took great care in helping us find our perfect home. She was patient and very helpful in the first time home buyers process. If you’re looking for a real estate agent I would definitely recommend Bonnie. If it wasn’t for her we would not be where we are today!

Mukund S. and Sakshi S.

Bonnie was instrumental in cracking the deal for our first house. We were new to the area and she guided us well at each step of the process. She was very patient as we took time to grasp the details. Bonnie took her time in completely understanding our requirements as a family and then started showing us appropriate properties. Bonnie has exceptional communication skills and she was very empathetic to our requirements. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Bonnie. And I would like to thank her for all her help, in getting our first house in the region.

Rachel and Matt

Thank you so much for all of your help in buying our first home. Your deep and extensive knowledge of the KW real estate market as well as your integrity made us feel comfortable during a stressful process. We don’t plan to move again for a while, but won’t hesitate to call you again!

Ben and Chantal

We’ve been living in our home now for over a year and couldn’t be happier with our purchase! Bonnie supported us in navigating the competitive Kitchener-Waterloo market through giving us insight into what to expect, trends and her experience from the search through to closing. She was patient with us as we figured out our specific wants and needs in our first home. Over and above, Bonnie got to know us as a couple and was genuinely interested in who we are as people. Similarly, we got to know Bonnie’s world, her love for her family, community and country music! Thank you, Bonnie, for all your support!

Heather and Andrew

My husband and I were first time home-buyers and new to the Kitchener-Waterloo market. Bonnie was very knowledgeable on each potential neighbourhood regarding age, new developments, schools and demographics. She was very patient with us, answered all of our questions and dedicated to finding the right home for us. She is more than a realtor to us. She is truly a kind and special person – we are so grateful to know her!

Jennifer and Jay S.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Bonnie was by our side the entire process answering all questions and concerns. Very knowledgeable and has a lot of compassion for her clients and families. We are in our DREAM home because of her. EXCEPTIONAL REALTOR!

Shilpi S.

Bonnie is a thorough professional, we found her advice to be very helpful and practical. During the entire home purchase journey, she stood with us patiently guiding us through at each step. She never pushed us and gave us ample time to find the house of our choice. I would recommend her services.

Steve F.

The value that Bonnie brought to not only selling my home, but to the search for a new home is immeasurable. The service and dedication she provided made the process quick and painless, having my condo sold within 48 hours of listing and helping to get me an amazing price below asking on my new house. I would strongly recommend Bonnie Bender to anyone looking for a dedicated, experienced realtor.

Louise B.

As a new client of Bonnie’s, I was extremely impressed how knowledgeable she was of the housing market. Once we discussed what type of house I was looking for, we found the perfect one within a week. Not only is she an excellent realtor, she’s also one of the kindest people I know. I would highly recommend her to help pick your next home.

Ken and Sharon N.

When we decided to sell our house and move into a condo, we had no idea who to get. Our son and daughter-in-law highly recommended Bonnie from Re/Max. After Bonnie taking us on many showings that lasted a few months, she never once gave up on us. I’m sure she thought we would never find what we were after. Eventually she found us the perfect place. She helped us through selling our house and buying the new place, all the while being very kind and patient with us. I would definitely recommend her to any of our friends or family. She was the best and through it all we became friends.

Paula C. And Alain G.

We have bought and sold homes with Bonnie and it’s always been a delightful experience working with her.  She is a woman of integrity, client focused, experienced, and has always gone above and beyond for us.  Bonnie is extremely responsive to all our questions, replying to emails and voicemails no matter where she is or what time it is.

Karen C. and Jeremy B.

Our previous real estate agent referred Bonnie to my husband and I when he moved out east. She quickly found us a lovely home to buy, got us a great deal and helped us to figure out financing. Later, she sold our first home after we rented it for a few years. She’s so capable, kind, honest and caring. She has your best interest at heart. She works hard and goes the extra mile. We also see her at events she hosts throughout the year, a wine and cheese event with a free pie give a way, a skating party, a movie night and she’s gotten us free tickets to the home show and more. We highly recommend Bonnie to help you find your first home or your forever home. She will get the job done quickly and with ease.

Karen Cooke

Sheila and Vasant S.

When we moved to KW 4 years ago and found Bonnie to help us find our home, what a treat.  Bonnie is patient and listened to our needs. Bonnie returned all our calls and followed up with questions no matter how big or small, she made our big move much easier. We would recommend her to anyone!

Christel and Guido W.

We met Bonnie when she sold our neighbor’s house.  When we were looking to downsize, we decided to give her a try to sell our home and find us a bungalow. Bonnie was extremely helpful in giving us appropriate information for what we were looking for. She was always available when we needed answers. She is a total professional. We would definitely recommend her for your real estate needs.

Lindsay O. and Kyle B.

We were very happy with the service Bonnie provided. She guided us through our first home buying experience and made us feel very comfortable and informed throughout the whole process. She was informative, knowledgeable of the area and able to recommend local resources to help us with every step of the process (lawyers, home inspectors, etc). All in all Bonnie made the experience less stressful and we love our new home.

Quincy N. and Waheeda B.

Working with Bonnie Bender was an exceptional experience. She is a kind, warmhearted individual who really cares about her clients. During times of difficulty, Bonnie not only encouraged us, but she also provided thoughtful advice and helpful hints when it seemed as though our house wouldn’t sell. She demonstrated patience and care, ensuring that we got the best sale possible and under no circumstances did she encourage us to settle. Moreover, she was there every step of the way in the purchasing of our new home. She took careful consideration of housing prospects to ensure we received the best possible home within our budget. Bonnie remains a friend and continues to share her warmth through her charisma, positive energy and reassuring smile. It was more than a pleasure to not only work with her, but to have had her as a integral part of our journey to finding a home.

Dave N. and Kahlee P.

We have bought three houses and sold two properties with Bonnie Bender over the course of 10 years.  Bonnie has provided excellent customer service as she represented us very well and ensured our needs were being met, given our complex situation she made our dream home come to a reality.  We thank Bonnie for her time and dedication and making our last house our forever home.

Lou and Jay P.

Bonnie Bender is much more than a real estate agent. Over the years of buying, selling and referring to friends, she’s always put our interests first listening to our needs and concerns. Bonnie has become a true friend, someone I trust and rely on for her knowledge and experience.

Ray and Lori M.

Bonnie Bender is truly a credit to the Real Estate industry. Bonnie assisted us in the sale of our home and the purchase of our current home.  Bonnie is professional, personable and thorough, she went out of her way to ensure we were well taken care of.  Bonnie is our family’s Real Estate Broker, we trust her and would highly recommend her to anyone.

Kristen and Daryl B.

Bonnie has been our realtor through both the purchase and sale of our home in Kitchener.  She has always been personable, professional, and hard working for us. She takes the time to get to know her clients and their family, and helps you to find the best outcome. Our house had more issues selling than anticipated but Bonnie gave us her complete honesty and knowledge of how things could play out, and she pulled through for us. We were happy with the final sale of our house. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Bonnie or use her again in the future.

Mike and Karen L.

Bonnie Bender was very professional throughout the process of selling our house, helping us prepare it for sale to the final closing. We received several offers all over asking and sold it after the first open house. Bonnie worked tirelessly to find us our new home, working late to close the purchase. It was a positive experience working with Bonnie.

Rick and Janice K.

We have had the pleasure of working with Bonnie to both sell and buy a home. In selling, Bonnie provided great, practical advice and service during all stages of the sale –  from staging and valuation to marketing and the final negotiations with the purchasers. Bonnie then worked with us, listening carefully to our wants and needs to help us find our dream home. We will definitely turn to Bonnie again for our future real estate needs.

Marge H.

In January I decided to sell my house and contacted Bonnie Bender to help me through this huge ordeal.  She was there to help me and guide me through the whole process.  All my questions were answered immediately and she also had many suggestions for me.  In the end because of the way she advertises, I sold my house in 1 day for more than the asking price.

Dave and Angie H.

We have used Bonnie as our agent for 8 years and 4 real estate transactions and have full confidence that she always acts with integrity and fairness to achieve the quickest and best result possible for us.

Erinne V.

I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better agent! Bonnie answered my many questions, considered my needs, and made herself available at any point in time to make offers and finally to close the deal. I would recommend Bonnie to anyone purchasing property and would definitely use her services again in the future. She definitely made purchasing property seem easy and effortless.

Minnie C.

Our family received a lot of help from Bonnie even before we arrived in Canada.
We would like to ask for her help again the next time we buy a house, since she was very helpful and professional.

Bridget and Don S.

When it came to downsizing Bonnie Bender helped us sell our family home and purchase our new condo with ease and comfort. She is thorough, professional and a true pleasure to work with. The whole process from start to finish was seamless. We’ve recommended her many times to our family and friends with absolute confidence.

Leigh and Iona

We had the pleasure of meeting Bonnie Bender when our family went to check out an open house as we first embarked on house hunting in Kitchener-Waterloo. Bonnie made us feel welcome and at ease from our first introduction. By the end of that house tour, we decided to hire her as our realtor, which was by far the best decision that we made (second of course to buying our dream home).

Bonnie was very patient, kind and accommodating during our involvement with her. Our family has a very busy schedule but she always worked around our needs and available times. She helped us narrow down our family’s “must haves” and “would like” lists and was able to find a perfect home for us that had everything from our first list and most from our second one.

Bonnie was very efficient in returning messages, accommodating requests for house viewings and helping us narrow down the list of houses to see in order to best utilize our time. We really appreciated Bonnie’s in-depth knowledge of different neighbourhoods, trends in the housing markets and areas and recognizing unique or worrisome features of different homes. All of these qualities helped us narrow down our search and after seeing many houses in K-W, she found us our dream home. On the day that we viewed our dream home, Bonnie freed up her busy schedule to ensure that we could put in our offer in a timely manner, which ensured our success in attaining that dream home. She helped us navigate the home buying process, so that all the necessary legal, financial and requirements were met in order for us to be successful in our move into our new home. We could not have done it all so efficiently without Bonnie’s help.

Our family is very grateful to Bonnie and we could not have asked for a more reliable, honest, kind, hard working and efficient realtor in the Kitchener Waterloo area. We would not hesitate to full heartedly recommend her as she will help you find your perfect home.

Cheryl and Dave M.

It has been wonderful working with you throughout the journey of finding our first house. We feel so lucky to have crossed paths with such an outstanding realtor who is motivated, knowledgeable, kind and caring. Thank you for all of your guidance and positive spirit. We LOVE our new home and look forward to many wonderful years here!

Dave N.

Thank you for helping us buy our first home. You made this process easy and relaxing for the both of us!


Thank you for helping get my condo sold this summer amd making the whole process as stress free as possible. It was a pleasure getting to work with you and know you!

Angie H.

Thanks so much for all you have done for us in finding our new home. You worked so hard for us to achieve this in such a short amount of time. Thank you for the long hours and being available to answer questions and help us out. It meant the world to us in making the transition to our new place. If we ever need a Realtor in the future we will definitely be in touch but hopefully not for another 5 years!

Tracey & Steve

It was a real pleasure to meet you and we appreciate the time that you took to show us the properties. Your input and information was extremely helpful in our decision making process. We wish you all the luck in the future and would recommend you highly to anyone looking for a property in KW!

Christine B.

As a home stager, I have had the pleasure of working with many of Bonnie’s clients. I have come to realize first-hand that she truly cares about the selling (and buying) experience of her clients, and provides them with a very high level of service. Bonnie is caring and compassionate, and a real estate professional that I am honoured to be associated with.

Terri-Lynn W.

Bonnie was recommended to me after I was extremely disappointed with my previous real estate agent. I was blown away with Bonnie’s creative ways of marketing my home and the amount of effort she put into it. Bonnie was aggressive without being obnoxious. I never felt pressured and I always felt she had my best interest in mind. With every open house or viewing she would follow up to let me know how it went. I would not hesitate to recommend Bonnie as a real estate agent….Thank you, Bonnie!!

Richard, Michelle and Henry


You knew exactly what we were looking for and made it happen. Thank you so much for all of your time and help.
