Thank you Barbara for making the sale of my property an experience that was not stressful and would definitely recommend Barbara Grumme to anyone who would be looking for a realtor.
Barbara Grumme and Ashley Czinege go way beyond putting a sign on your lawn and helps you be part of their team in developing mutual goals and time lines to get the best possible sale for your home and helping in the search for a new one.

Right from the start our experience with Ashley was tremendously rewarding. Ashley went above and beyond in taking the lead with organizing and planning of the listing, getting qualified buyers into our home, setting the best price for our home and all done in a timely manner. Ashley was conscientious in keeping us informed as to our status during the short 2 weeks' listing and was always available to answer questions we had as they arose. Communication was key in our success and her calm and confident demeanor put us at ease during the progression of the sale.
As a side note : Ashley had explained how the co- listing was going to work as we had no idea what it entailed. It was a flawless process; one that provided us with even more assistance and support than we could have imagined. Together they worked closely in tandem and as you can see by the results in this quick sale. Gillian Stockdale was selected from our area (by Ashley) and was remarkable in fulfilling all of our needs and wishes with extra signage(s), looking after things behind the scenes and orchestrating open house with all the details taken care of up to and including the actual offer presentations - (all overseen by Ashley). Ashley was proficient in selecting such an amazing and professional Sales Representative as Gillian.
Another note: Barbara Grumme, Ashley's business partner, also provided special talent in staging our property. We were in awe of her work and of the foresight she had to see the potential in our property. We still speak of Barbara's exceptional work today!

Barbara Grumme was a go-getter with her plan and helped us prepare our house in the best way for selling it. I would highly recommend her everyone!!!!
I had a great experience working with Ashley Czinege. She was very responsive and available at all times. She was very patient and listens to what you have to say and continues to listen wholeheartedly even if it takes you almost a year to buy a property. Throughout the whole process I was also impressed to find out she was always willing to help no matter how long of a drive she had to make to be there for you.
Henry & Barbara K
After our experience in working with Ashley Czinege we realize that Ashley sets the bar when it comes to fulfilling our needs, great communication, competent and diligent in completing required tasks. A pleasure to work with!
I can only say how impressed I am with Barbara and Ashley’s business ethics. When I referred Norma to them, I didn't expect anything from you in return. I just knew that Norma needed a Good Realtor and you were the one to sell her house. I knew how hard you work for your customers plus you know how to handle their needs at the same time. Thank you for making the charitable donation to Ronald McDonald House in my name.
This was our first move after living in our house for forty four years. Barbara Grumme was always accessible for all our many questions and concerns. She dealt with everyone in the field with a professional and patient manner, even when the issues got difficult and were out of her control. We felt confident Barbara would handle our situation with care and concern.

Within a few weeks of asking Ashley Czinege and Barbara Grumme for help we had a contract signed and will be moving November 1st. Ashley and Barbara were very knowledgeable of the demographics of the Niagara arena and were able to steer us towards neighbourhoods that would suit our family and needs. They were also very easy to reach and accommodate our schedule. We were able to see any property I asked for within a day it was a great experience. I would recommend Ashley and Barbara to anyone looking to find their dream home!

Barbara Grumme and Ashley Czinege, we just wanted to take this opportunity to say a big heartfelt “THANK YOU!” We appreciate everything that you ladies have done from the beginning and how on top of everything you both were. When we had all the chips stacked up against us and reached a point of possibly losing our dream home, you gave us hope! Ashley once said “Barbara and I can do a lot in 48 hrs!”… And that’s exactly what happened. They worked a miracle in 48 hours and we are so grateful. We would recommend Ashley and Barbara over and over again to anyone who needs a trustworthy and hardworking team for all things real estate.
Ashley Czinege has given us a very professional, and at the same time, friendly service pertaining to the sale of our home. We couldn't have asked for anyone better.

Should you be looking for a realtor I highly would recommend Barbara Grumme.
My Husband and I had been contemplating selling our home for months and started the process of interviewing realtors. It wasn’t until we meet Barbara that we felt an instant connect. Perhaps at first it was the infinity/chakra necklace she was wearing that gave me a calm trusting feeling. Let’s face it selling a home is very stressful. Such a pleasure working with someone that has an inner sense that helps make the process more tolerable. She worked tirelessly on our behalf. One would think we were her only client and yet she has many.
My husband coined the phrase “Barbara puts the real in realtor”. That says it all.
Ashley was a wonderful agent, friendly and had great knowledge regarding all the properties we viewed. I would highly recommend her to my family and friends.

When choosing a real estate agent to buy and sell a new home, which I recently did, I am so pleased I selected Barbara Grumme from Century 21. What I liked most about Barbara is her knowledge of the Niagara Region, to start with. I believe that anyone looking to buy or sell in the Niagara Region should definitely select an agent who knows the area and the market inside-out, and she does. Her attention to detail and her energy to succeed with helping you accomplish your goals are second to none!
I believe that working with an agent who knows what they are doing should be paramount in any real estate decision that you make. Since you are putting a lot on the line financially, mentally and physically, you should select an agent that can reassure you that you are in excellent hands. Selecting Barbara Grumme was the best choice that I ever made!
Rob D & Krista C
I would recommend Ashley Czinege to anyone looking to sell or buy a home. Ashley helped us fine our perfect home and sell our home in a short time.
I grew up with Ashley. She has always been a hard worker and very knowledgeable. Her webpage showed great success in buying and selling.
She made finding the right house easy. Never pressured us and always encouraged us that we would find the right home. It was a very competitive time when we bought and she helped us through it all to find our first home. She was up to date and current and always put us first. Ashley was knowledgeable of the competitors in the area and ensured we never over payed or was taken advantage of. Highly recommend to my family and friends.
Erin & Nathan B
When it came time to sell our property there was no other agent I would have considered as our agent except for Ashley. Our property, a country location, with many different facets involved in the sale, was not your typical house sale. However, even though Ashley is a fresh face in the industry, we felt confident that she could deliver the results we were hoping for with the sale. It was an extremely emotional time for us however Ashley never wavered on her professionalism with us, all interested buyers and their agents, and was extremely supportive and encouraging throughout the process. We outlined the results we needed from our sale in terms of price, timeline, etc. and Ashley delivered. It was no easy feat and we were very demanding at times, but Ashley stayed par for the course and our results were exceptional. I cannot recommend strongly enough considering Ashley as the agent to sell your home. You will not be disappointed!
Renee & Darryl S
When purchasing our home, Ashley was on it! Once we found our home, she was quick to make appointments, gave us great advice and most of all, she kept us calm. Our needs and wants was her priority and we trusted her with what moves to make and glad we did. We were in our new home and loving it! Thank you Ashley for everything.
Clark & Fran B
Barbara Grumme, Ashley Czinege and the team were extremely professional and knowledgeable about the real estate market in Niagara Falls. My wife and I sold our bed and breakfast and Barbara was able to get us more money and sold it faster than we expected. She kept positive and helped us not to get discouraged when we had some negative feedback from potential buyers. We would happily recommend the services of Barbara and Ashley.
Thank you Barbara for leading me through the process of selling my house in Niagara and successfully selling it while I was living many miles away. From advice on staging and ensuring there were great photos to showcase the house online, to the day-to-day promotion of my home in the marketplace, to other agents and to local and out-of-town buyers - I'm so glad I chose you as my real estate agent in Niagara.
Heartland Forest is a unique natural attraction Where Learning Comes Naturally. Located in Niagara Falls, Heartland Forest is a place where all ages and abilities learn and grow while enjoying the accessible trails, gardens, ponds and interpretative areas. Admission is free and people come from all over Southwestern Ontario to visit Heartland Forest thanks to the generosity of countless volunteers and donors.
Barbara Grumme is one of those dedicated volunteers and a valued resource. We are thankful for the over 10 years she served on our Board of Directors and for the unique talents she brought to the team. Barbara was the originator of our WinterFest event – a free community event held on Family Day Monday. It has grown over the years and is now one of our signature events. Her hard working, organized approach was just what we needed.
After each event Barbara and her team would put together a promotional video highlighting the fun that was had and showing the ‘special’ side of Heartland Forest. Barbara’s passion for creatively and effectively communicating our message to the community has been a gift to Heartland Forest and an important part of our success. Thank you Barbara!
Barbara was awesome and went above and beyond as the property was not in the best of shape! Thank you! Couldn't have ask to work with a better, kind, more accommodating person!
Ashley Czinege sold my home quickly and we received over asking, definitely exceeding my expectations! It is always a pleasure to work with Ashley as she attends to my every need and even foresees my needs before they arise.
Cassie & Steve
As first time home buyers it's scary enough trying to get into the market and purchase your first home never mind trying to deal with an unpredictable housing market. Ashley has been very patient,encouraging and supportive through this whole process. She is very knowledgeable of the market and stays up to date with all the changing demands and needs of her clients. Ashley defiantly made this process easy for us and we would recommend her to our family and friends. I'm so glad we got the chance to have such a fabulous realtor and make this experience memorable for both my husband and I.
5 stars! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Buying my first house in this crazy market today was overwhelming ... but Barbara's experience and knowledge kept me calm and relaxed. Barbara found the house for me and my family!
She will be my first call if I ever buy again and should be your first call today!
Ashley was amazing to deal with. So friendly and knowledgeable. She understood my needs right from day one and was able to consistently provide expert advice and answer all my my questions right away. I'm now living in a wonderful home in a great neighbourhood thanks to her help!
I was very pleased the way Barbara Grumme took care of the sale of my house, it was not a simple sale due to the condition that I would remain as tenant after the sale! Barbara did an excellent job! The sale was only interesting for investors who would preferably live in the area. I would recommend Barbara to anybody for a real estate transaction!
Nick and Nancy D
Barbara Grumme as realtor? Definitely yes! We found her to be personable, honest and forthright. Totally there for her clients, always pleasant and helpful. Hard-working and a true professional in her field. We placed complete trust in her to help us buy and sell and the results speak for themselves. Thank you, Barb.
I was incredibly satisfied how Ashley handled every aspect of the purchase of my home. She was so helpful and knowledgeable and made the most important purchase of my life possible.
As anyone who has ever bought or sold a home knows, it can be a very stressful but Ashley made the entire experience a pleasure. She is very knowledgeable and helpful and communicated so well with every step of the way.
Laura & Dave
We had the pleasure of working with Ashley Czinege to sell our home. Our home sold in 5 days. We didn't get the asking price but it was close with a quick closing date that we wanted.
Thank you Ashley for helping us through the sale of our home. We found that Ashley is a hard worker and wanted to find the right buyer for our house. So we would recommend Ashley to sell your home.
I could not have found a better agent in respect to all my requirements previously mentioned! Barbara showed me a lot of houses to choose from.
Had my houses with another broker for 2 years. Barb had a buyer before we filled in the paperwork. Above and beyond.
Barb was amazing, I found my dream home. After 15 years of waiting, Barb made it happen once again.
Our family loves Barb! My mother listed her home with Barb, and once again, she ensured the best possible outcome!
Ashley is hardworking and is always ready to answer any questions.
Barbara, thank you for everything you did to promote the selling of my home. Your professional and personal attention was above and beyond anything I have ever had when selling a property. I would not and have not hesitated to recommend you. Once again, thank you so much.
Al & Kaye
Ms. Grumme was referred to us by a very satisfied friend who had her as a realtor, when we decided to begin the downsizing process here in Niagara Falls. Barbara is extremely professional, getting to know precisely what her clients want first and foremost, and then starting the processes. Her dedication to her profession comes through in her dedication to the clients. We could not be more pleased with the time she spent on our request and the speed with which she was able to both sell our home and find us the new one we just purchased today.
We strongly recommend to anyone buying or selling a home to contact Barbara Grumme of Century 21 Today. You will NOT be disappointed!
Kevin & Joanna
We did not think that one real estate agent was different from the other, but when we met you, we were sold right away. We could tell you were different and that you cared how we felt. We are so impressed with your genuine personality, educational background and previous experience.
Amanda & Greg
Both me and my husband were extremely pleased with Ashley's service and expertise with the recent purchase of our new home. Great advice was given and everything was made clear. Ashley was efficient and proactive with helping us find our perfect home as well as selling our current one.
We ended up finding and selling our home in a week which was all thanks to her! She had the perfect buyer in mind for us and made everything fast and easy with no worries! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy and/or sell! Thanks again Ashley for all your help, if we ever need help again in the future, we know who to turn to!
Marla & Ed O.
Barbara, you kept it organized and handled issues with ease and professionalism. We love our new waterfront dream home! Thank you.
Century 21 Sales Representatives, Barbara Grumme and Ashley Czinege's, vast knowledge of real estate in Niagara, and their professional and courteous deportment, were key to the listing, marketing and sale of my house.
Kevin & Sarah D.
Thank you so much for selling our home and helping us find our beautiful new home! You have been fantastic! Professional, reliable, knowledgeable, and now a good friend.
Mike & Alicia
Ashley made the search for our first home very simple. She gathered all of the information and booked all of the showings we wanted to see. She then helped us out contacting lawyers, inspectors, etc. She made our first experience as home buyers the best. We highly recommend Ashley to anyone.
Coral & Darlene
Barbara, we would like to thank you for all of your hard work, professionalism, attention to detail, concern for our welfare, expert guidance and support through the negotiation process. We are pleased with the final outcome and we would be happy to recommend your services to our friends and neighbours.
