As we have never sold a house before, we were not aware of all the details and intricacies involved in planning before our house was put on the market, pricing, timing, the actual selling process, negotiation, and closing the sale. Nick was very helpful in guiding us in every step, patiently explaining the issues involved and answering all our questions. We appreciated his professionalism, client-centred approach, and his emphasis on relationship-building (not simply there to do a quick sale). He was quick in responding to our phone calls and emails. His advice on every dimension of the sale was sound, based on good knowledge and experience on the housing market in our neighbourhood. As a result, we sold our house in ten days, at the price we had wanted! Thank you, Nick!

My husband and I had many issues selling our Ottawa condo for quite some time. We went through 2 agent but neither of them produced results which was quite frustrating. Nick on the other hand, is a superstar and is an agent that produces results. He made sure to give us weekly updates, he researched the competing condo units in our building, and actually sold the place. There were obviously hurdles in the way with some buyers trying to lowball us but Nick was willing to spend the extra time to help us get the place sold by hosting open houses often. His work ethic and his honesty is something rare to find these days. I definitely recommend him for home sale and for home buying. Like

"Nick was referred to me by a colleague. I liked him because I felt he really cared about his clients and would focus on our needs. I was new to the Ottawa real estate market having recently re-located without my husband and this was my first house. I felt he was willing to educate me while at the same time listening to our needs. It also helped to know that he had re-located himself from overseas; I felt he might understand our challenges! Buying your first house with your partner overseas, with a new job in a new city is not easy. Nick’s experience, patience and dedication were critical in helping us found our perfect little house! A great listener, he was able to identify the best neighborhoods for our needs and price point. His smile and good humor made the entire process enjoyable, and most importantly his ability to deal with difficult situations was amazing. Indeed a week before closing I was overseas and while Nick did the final inspection for us (this shows how much we trusted him!) he found some issues and immediately dealt with the seller to find solutions. I came back to Ottawa and only had to sign papers; everything was resolved in a matter of days! I am truly grateful for the peace of mind and dedication Nick gave us throughout the buying process."
• Marie-Caroline, First-time buyer in Overbrook
When it came to list our home and to choose an agent, we didn’t have to look around. We knew Nick was our only choice. We’ve known Nick for over 10 years and knew we could trust him with our biggest financial investment and ultimately, with our financial future. He’s dedicated, knowledgeable, and most importantly, caring and compassionate. We knew he could help us through the stressful process of selling our home on a timeline and that he would look out for our best interest and provide us with the best advice for our situation. We especially appreciated Nick’s commitment to open houses, his staging and photography services, and his use of social media advertising. With a young child at home and our busy work and home lives, Nick made sure our schedules and needs were always put first. Nick found ways to make the process better and put our situation in perspective. When it came to negotiating our closing, we were glad to have him in our corner. We’re convinced we couldn’t have sold our home without him. And we wouldn't do it without him if we had to do it again!
• Rob and Colleen, Sellers in Orleans
"Nick got recommended to us by friends and he made a good impression on us during our first encounter. We liked Nick because he was not pushy and took the time to listen to us. Working with you was a pleasure both on the buying and the selling side. Your patience during our search for a new home and all the previews and leg work you did was appreciated. With two small children our schedule is often hectic and you were always able to adapt. All the comments you did on the interactive search page were quite helpful. After only a few visits with us you were quite accurate in pointing out the houses that we would like (and dislike). As for the selling, all the ad material was well done and we were also fortunate to get a conditional sale quickly!"

"Both Jeannie and I were very happy in our dealings with you, Nick. You are a very professional realtor who can get results! A real pleasure to deal with you."
• David and Jeannie, Buyers in Hunt Club Golf Course Area
We are incredibly happy with the quality of service Nick offers. He's professional and personable. We've already purchased two homes with him and should we need to make another purchase or sale in the future, there is no doubt who our realtor will be. Nick's attention to detail really makes him stand out. He is organized, punctual, and follows through. He was quick to answer emails, set up show times, and answer any questions we had about a property. We appreciated his honesty when trying to decide if a house was a right fit, and we never felt pressured to make an offer or decision. Nick is an exceptional realtor and a great person. Thank you Nick, we appreciate everything you've done for us.
• Elena and Peter, Repeat Clients
"I appreciated the knowledge of Nick as it regards pointing out positives and negatives that I as the buyer did not know. Nick was very much aware of our needs and aimed to see them met. Working with Nick was a great experience! He was personable and very knowledgeable in the housing market. Always pleasant and very respectful. I would have no problem recommending and the great service you provide!"
• Vaden and Judy, Buyers in Half Moon Bay
"Nick was an excellent realtor. As first time home-buyers, Dave and I were both anxious about the home-buying process and with Nick it was a breeze. In fact, it was even fun! He was very patient with us, professional, knowledgeable about homes in all of the areas we looked, and was able to work around our schedules. Plus, he always had a smile on his face! In the end, we ended up buying a house that Nick suggested and are very happy in our home. Five stars! "
