Our mission is to empower consumers with information to make smart decisions. The "Watty Way" is a real estate team dedicated to helping homeowners, home buyers, sellers, renters and agents find and share information about homes, real estate and home improvement.
Darryl and his team were friendly, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable, and we would definitely reccomend them to anybody looking to purchase a home in the Waterloo region. At each showing, Darryl would provide extensive information about the neighbourhood, ideas for future improvements, and a heads up on potential issues. When it came time to offer on a property, he gave what we believe were accurate estimates of what it was worth and what it would sell for, and when we found the one we really wanted, we were confident about our offer and are now very happy to call it home! If you're looking to work with an efficient team of good people with your best interests at heart, give Darryl a call! - Quinton and Kateryna
Darryl was professional in every way. The video he created to sell my home was inviting to the sellers and boasts all the positive details in buying my home. Would recommend him to all buyers and sellers as their representative. - Roberta Jean Ness
Reply: It was a pleasure working with you Roberta! Happy to hear you enjoyed the video and congrats on the successful sale!
Darryl and his team were knowledgeable and personable. Together we came up with a selling goal and plan and it was quickly and professionally accomplished. Darryl knows his business and treats his clients with respect. I would recommend the Watty Way to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. - Jennifer Lacoste
Reply: Hi Jennifer, I appreciate you taking the time to write this and I'm so happy your experience was satisfactory. You and Marc are awesome!
Absolutely fantastic. Very thorough, and knowledgeable, explained paragraphs to me in the offer and what they mean to me. He is not in a hurry to make a sale like most realtor are...more interested in getting me the price I wanted. - Yolanda Pingos
Reply: Thanks so much for the review Yolanda. I'm so happy to hear you had a good experience with us, you were a joy to work with!
Daryl was recommended to us by my cousin who is also a realtor in Toronto and from the moment my wife and I met with him virtually we knew we were in the right hands. I jokingly told him that we would only need to search for houses for one day. Well, one the first day we saw a house we liked, Daryl put in an "exploratory" offer (under asking) about 7 pm on the same day, and the following morning we woke up to an email saying "congrats, the seller accepted the offer." And that was it. It was a flurry of activities that Daryl assisted with for the next 60 days; guiding us through the downpayment, inspection, walkthroughs, and ensuring we got some updated appliances before closing. Overall, his guidance made the process that much easier. If you're still on the fence, make the decision--do things the Watty Way! - Clive Forrester
Reply: Thank you so much for the kind words Clive, it was an absolute pleasure working with you and Natasha. I'm happy I was able to make the process easier for you guys, congratulations on the new place!
Working with Darryl was great. He was really easy to work with, knowledgeable about the area we were looking. Personally, I liked that he acted as a sober second look while looking at houses helping find potential areas of concern. - Mirko
Reply: Hi Mirko, I'm happy to hear you had a good experience. You were great to work with as well and I'm so glad we were able to find the perfect spot for you!
From start to finish Darryl and his team were wonderful. Very professional to deal with, always available for any questions or concerns with a great response time.

Darryl and his team came to us via recommendation from a friend. He was very friendly and knowledgeable, and we felt comfortable working with him right off the bat.

Reply: Thanks for the review, Brandy! It was great working with you two to find the right home for your family. All the best settling into Woodstock!
I have bought and sold with Darryl twice now. I wouldn't work with any other agent. When selling he provides reassurance, knowledge and understanding of the market, your house and goals. When buying he really listens and makes sure he finds a home you will be happy in and that will provide your next goals and dreams. Darryl is extremely easy to work with, is very responsive, knowledgeable, patient and gets the job done effectively and smoothly. I highly recommend Darryl Watty when buying and selling a home! - Emily Melissa Schacht Doherty
Reply: I'm honoured by such a great review, Emily! Thank you for your kind words, they are so appreciated. Excited to see the new place come together!!
Darryl was an absolute pleasure to work with. We worked with him in the past when we purchased our first home and were so impressed with his skills that we asked him to be our realtor when wanted to sell the house. He was knowledgeable, efficient, and passionate and we never felt left in the dark about the process of listing, staging, and selling our home. We would highly recommend Darryl to anyone looking for a reliable realtor. - Ashley Bell-Limisis
Reply: Thank you Ashley for taking the time to write a review! Whether buying or selling a home, it is always a pleasure working with you.
We've known Darryl since we randomly walked into one of his open houses four years ago and liked him so much that we stayed in touch. It was clear immediately that he was the agent for us. He is knowledgeable, practical, and works hard at everything from relationships to hands-on help getting ready to list. He has excellent taste, and a great team supporting him. We had such a good relationship with Darryl that we recommended him to friends years before we'd ever completed a transaction with him. Now that we've sold our house with Darryl, we're even more certain that we can't recommend any realtor more highly! - Jennifer Smith
Reply: What a lovely review - thank you, Jennifer!! It was a pleasure working with you guys, and I am delighted that my team and I were able to help you with the sale of your home. Enjoy the new place in Hamilton!
Mr Watty is a highly knowledgeable, professional, and reliable Realtor. He was flexible and amenable to customize his service to meet our family’s unique needs, in a challenging and unprecedented housing market. Darryl Watty helped us to find, and acquire, the perfect home for our family. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to secure the best home for their real estate needs! - Christine Thornton
Reply: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review, Christine! It is very appreciated. All the best to you and your family, enjoy your new home.
My wife and I found our experience with Darryl to be professional, very friendly, charismatic and very fun to work with! From first meeting, to placing the successful offer, Darryl was excellent at evaluating our needs, suggesting great potential properties to view (including relevant background on the area in terms of amenities and the communities), and really just educating us about what to look for when searching for and viewing a house. He did all of this, while making us feel like he was a part of our family/priority whenever we met or spoke with him. We really felt more confident in our knowledge/experience and happy at the end.. we would definitely recommend him and work with him again in future. - Marlon and Lieanna
Reply: Thank you so much for writing a review, Marlon & Lieanna! I'm delighted that we were able to craft a fun yet educational experience for you, while also locating the ideal home at the end of our search.
As first time homeowners, we were scared and nervous about getting into the market. Everyone my partner and I had met with about potentially buying a home told us we weren't quite ready yet. Darryl Watty really took us under his wing and taught us everything we needed to know about buying a home, while making it fun and exciting. He pointed us in the right direction and explained all the details in ways that made sense to us. We didn't have a big budget to work with, but he made every effort to find a home we would be happy with. We ended up purchasing a home that we wanted, and we're so grateful we didn't have to settle for something else just to break into this crazy market. Watty is hands down a wonderful person and a top-notch realtor. If you're looking for an amazing realtor who also has your best interest at heart, you'd be crazy not to work with Watty and his awesome team! - Cristopher Corson
Reply: Thank you for such an awesome review, Cris!! Working with you was a great experience, and I'm so happy we were able to help you two find the perfect home.
If I could rate higher than 5 stars I would! Darryl was so passionate about our home and selling it at the best price for us. He did 2 open houses when open houses weren't popular, and that is what eventually sold our house. He even took our dog for a walk during a showing when we were out for the night. Service doesn't get better than that! Thank you Darryl for all of your help. - Tammy
Reply: I'm delighted I was able to help, Tammy! Thank you for writing such a lovely review, and as for walking the dog, the pleasure was all mine.
We had the pleasure to deal with both, Darryl and Jim. They are an excellent team and great real estate agents. They helped us with three transactions so far and always struck us as being very knowledgeable, professional and honest. They were always available to address any of our concerns from staging, pricing and market analysis to property maintenance and general construction. If you want a real estate agent who will give you a knowledgeable advice on the property, point out pros and cons, rather then just unlocking the door and nodding to everything you say, they are your guys. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking to buy or sell in the Kitchener-Waterloo or Guelph area. - Aygul and Amer Almani
Reply: Thank you so much for the review, Aygul & Amer! We greatly enjoyed working with you guys too - enjoy the new home with your family.
I would use Darryl to sell any of my homes or condos in the future again. I gave him a five star rating all around he’s very professional and he knows what he’s talking about when it comes to selling a home in today’s market. - Esan Howell
Reply: Working with you is always a pleasure, Esan! Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.
Darryl and his team are a dream to work with. Darryl has a great eye and made a few suggestions for staging. He personally installed light fixtures to upgrade those on my main floor! He sold my house within hours of it hitting MLS. Could not be happier with the service and professionalism! - Lianne Smith
Reply: Greatly appreciate the review, Lianne - thank you! I'm so glad you're happy with our level of service.
Darryl has great attention to detail, knows the industry well, thinks strategically, is a strong negotiator and provides useful advice. Overall, he was very professional, experienced and helpful throughout the whole process. - Solmaz Vakili
Reply: Thank you so much for the review, Solmaz! It was great working together to find the right home for you guys.
It has always been a pleasure working with Darryl and he has aways had our best interests in mind. He went above and beyond to ensure that we found the perfect property. Darryl is extremely knowledgeable not only about the housing market but the ins and outs of houses themselves. I feel better with his insights because we could not conduct a house inspection in this market. We had very specific requirements about location and style of house. He was VERY patient and worked diligently with us for a period of 6 months in this tough market to find our forever home. We are extremely happy with this whole process from start to finish! - Pj Lowe
Reply: Thanks for the review, PJ!! It is always awesome working with you guys in either purchasing or selling a property. So glad I could help you find the perfect location for your forever home for the family. Can't wait to see what it looks like after the reno!
Darryl was suggested to me by the agent that Iwe bought our next house with. He promptly visited and then it was sold. Multiple viewings. He did more than I expected. Highly recommend Darryl Watty and his company. Thanks again Darryl - Jan Gregor

My son recommended Darryl Watty as a real estate agent . Darryl helped him to sell house in Waterloo and buy new one in Stratford. Darryl Watty is not only an amazing realtor but a fantastic person. He always has an upbeat positive attitude. His knowledge of the market, professionalism I would put on the highest level. Darryl with his amazing Team made great job! We will definitely look forward to working with Darryl Watty again in the future for our next purchase. We would highly recommend Darryl to anyone. Thank you very much Darryl and Team, we very appreciate your job! - Guennadi and Irina Martchenko
Reply: Thanks for the review, Guennadi & Irina! Thank you also for trusting us with the process with listing your home - very happy with the results obtained.
Darryl was wonderful to work with, from the moment I first landed on his website to get a sense of how he works, through the initial interview, the listings, the viewings, all the way through closing. Between he and his partner, Jim, and their industry contacts who helped me with all the other aspects of buying a house, it was just about as easy as buying a house can reasonably be. Darryl's expertise and experience with the market, the timing of things, and prices really helped me keep calm and through the disappointing months and ready to pounce when my dream house went up for sale. I'm thrilled with my new home! - Maddy Currie
Reply: Thank you for the review, Maddy! So happy for you, and glad we could assist you with purchasing the perfect home.
Darryl Whitey was extremely helpful and understood the nature of my century home in promoting its unique attribute add location. I would recommend him to anybody because he goes beyond the normal expectations of any agent. I highly recommend that you choose Darryl as your agent you will not regret it, I was completely satisfied with the way he handled the sale of my house. - Evelyne Lord

Reply: Berkeley, thanks for your review! Always a pleasure working with you, sir.
Darryl was so easy to work with, he went above and beyond of what we needed. He answered all our questions, helped with professionals we needed for some work needed to be finished to put our condo for sale, even went as far as doing a few things himself to make it more attractive. - Majda and Gunther Mai
Reply: Thank you for taking the time to write this, Majda & Gunther! I truly appreciate the review.
Darryl was an amazing help in finding our home. Setting up eligible homes, taking us around the homes and the communities and keeping us informed at every step were just a few of his great traits. Darryl offered honest perspectives on homes, their upkeep and possibility of sale price and always listened to what we felt. He was a true asset and we would never would have found our place without him. - Steven Jackson
Reply: I'm delighted I was able to help you two find the right home, Steven! You guys are awesome - thank you for the review, and all the best in your new place.
Darryl and Jim are a fantastic team and I highly recommend them for buying or selling. As a first-time home-buyer Darryl helped my fiancée and I understand the market and get into our first home. I would recommend them for other first time buyers as their knowledge and patience are invaluable to buyers (especially in this market). We will definitely look forward to working with them again in the future for our next purchase. - Tori Kozma
Reply: It was great working with you and Nick! Thank you for the review, and all the best in your new home.
Darryl Watty is not only an amazing realtor but a fantastic human being. He treats you like family and goes above and beyond. When we needed help he rolled up his sleeves and came over to help us move furniture and arrange things the way we needed it. He always offered insight and was willing to help out however he could even if it meant having to paint a room. Communication was never an issue with Darryl. He always responded promptly and professionally as was always there for you when you needed him. I would highly recommend Darryl to ANYONE. I have had my fair share of experience with Realtors in the past but none of them hold a candle to Darryl. - Joe Soares
Reply: Thank you for such a glowing review, Joe!! Working with you guys was a pleasure, and I'm happy we were able to help you sell your house and find a new home.
Darryl and his team have been very knowledgeable and provided excellent advice regarding preparation and execution of our Sale.

I couldn’t have done it without them! - Chantal
Reply: Thank you for your kind words, Chantal!! We definitely enjoyed working with you too.
Since day 1, Darryl and Jim have helped us find exactly what we were looking for. Providing guidance in what we should and should not look for, helping us understand the risks and benefits of each one of the houses that they’ve shown to us, including decoration tips! :) Besides it, they took the time to answer all the questions that we had, with no exception. After the deal was made and we got the keys, they still assisted us, helping us overcome issues that all home buyers might face during the first couple of weeks after moving into their dream house. To summarize, it was a pleasure and a 5 stars experience working with them, during the process of finding our new home in a region that we were not living in before. If in the future we decide to pursue a new home, Darryl and Jim will be the first ones that we will reach out to! - Guilherme Brondi
Reply: Thank you so much for the review, Guilherme, I really appreciate it!! So happy that Jim and I were able to help you find the right place to call home in Waterloo Region.

Reply: It was a pleasure working with you two!! Thank you for taking the time to write a review, Alex.
My husband and I first started working with Darryl back in 2016 when we were first time home buyers. We knew when we started thinking about selling and buying our next home in 2021 that Darryl would be our number one choice. The energy and expertise Darryl and his team bring to the table is unmatched. It really doesn't matter how big or small your question or concern may be they are quick to respond with all of the detail and more. Darryl has made the process of selling and buying a new home in todays market absolutely stress-free. We really couldn't see ourselves working with any other team. If you're looking for someone to help buy or sell your next home, I would highly recommend the team of skilled professionals at The Watty Way. - Jenny Quinlan
Reply: Thank you for the review, Jenny, I really appreciate it. It was wonderful to work with you guys again!
We came into our home search like most people do - confused and terrified - but from the moment we met Darryl, we knew we were in safe hands. His knowledge of the area and of the factors that go into what would make a property perfect to us made us feel confident in our ability to find our dream home. What really blew us away was his knowledge of structural and technical issues. He was able to identify where problems could lurk and warn us of where we could anticipate future repair costs. On top of all that, Darryl is so fun to work with! His sense of humour and positive energy made the entire experience great, and we would recommend Darryl to anyone looking in Guelph/KW. - Christine & Ashley
Reply: I'm so happy I was able to help you find the right home! You guys are awesome - thank you for the review, and all the best in your new place.
Absolute pleasure! Darryl takes away all of the anxiety and stress you may feel before, during, and after the selling of your home. If you appreciate open, honest and efficient communication, Darryl and his team are a fit for you! There is no guessing on next steps or feedback during the entire process. The marketing plan for our home was spectacular! Professional photos, 3D imagery, exposure on multiple social media platforms, and to top it off, a fully customized video walkthrough showcasing the best our property had to offer; Cineplex style! A++ experience! Thank you, Darryl and Team! - Greg Brooks
Reply: Thank you so much for taking the time to write this, Greg!! I really appreciate the review, and we greatly enjoyed working with you too.
Darryl's help in selling my home was invaluable. Initially, he explained the whole process from preparing the house, to pricing, receiving offers and accepting an offer. His knowledge and professionalism led to it being priced effectively, thereby, resulting in a quick and successful sale. Darryl's commentary throughout the video emphasized the features of my home, as did the aerial view of the of the area surrounding it. Additionally, the two booklets compiled by the team contained clear, concise checklists for preparing for the sale and for the inevitable move following. They simplified the process and contained important information I might otherwise have overlooked. I would definitely recommend Darryl to anyone considering selling or buying a home. - Helene Bindseil
Reply: It was a pleasure working with you, Helene! Thank you for taking the time to write a review.
Darryl was fantastic all the way through the stressful process of selling our home, He gave us great advice for prep prior to listing to maximize our value, solid lead generation and fantastic presentation of our property on multiple platforms. He was responsive and dealt with all of our questions and concerns. He has a superb ability to navigate the market. He also gave us great advice when we bought our new home. Our first offer was successful and in this market, that is not typical. We will definitely refer him to our family and friends. Thanks Darryl! - Karen Choonoo
Reply: Thank you for your kind words, Karen! Helping our clients move efficiently and happily is what makes real estate so awesome.
