“The House History book Robin produced for us far exceeded our expectations. The cover illustration is beautiful, the binding classic and tasteful. Inside Robin laid out the fascinating findings of the people who once lived in our home and the development of our neighbourhood over the years. The depth of research was extensive and impressive. Robin’s house history’s are great value for money and well worth every penny.”

Sarah Pointer

“Robin presented us with a final product that well exceeded our expectations. Not only were we pleased with the depth of research and the attractive and professional presentation of the work, Robin also made the process of uncovering the history of our home both fun and exciting. She put us in contact with the grandchildren of the original owners, for example, who shared stories, told us interesting details of the house, and graciously supplied family photographs that were included in the book. Overall, I would say hiring Robin was extremely worthwhile and we were very glad we did it.”

“We know this [regarding the Maple Leaf Gardens time capsule mystery] thanks to the sleuthing of “ACE” Toronto house historian Robin Burgoyne of housestories.ca”

“The book and the painting brought me to tears last night, I was so overwhelmed by the story and the artwork.  It is simply gorgeous, thank you for putting this together. The watercolor is also perfect and exactly what we had been looking for. It’s a wonderful memento of our first house together and our years on Aberdeen. Best of the holidays to you.”

“Working with Robin on the documentation of our home in historic Cabbagetown was a wonderful experience. We learned many of the secrets to our old house and…through Robin’s tenacity, got to meet a former occupant – who lived in the home as a boy. It was a great treat! The end result was a beautiful hard copy book which we often share with family and friends.”
