"I had confidence that you would listem to our needs, respond to communications promptly, and give us the information and time we needed to make a decision. We had a great first-time home buying experience working with you! You helped us through a process through the process and we had confidence in your knowledge and expertise."
• Dawn and Jesse, First-Time Buyers in Queenswood Heights
We had two friends that had each used Nick's services for purchasing their first homes, and he was highly recommended. When we contacted him, he replied very quickly and within days, we had an appointment to meet Nick in person. He worked with our schedule and we were able to meet in the evening during the week. That first meeting was incredibly informative! Nick walked us through what to expect at every step of the process, start to finish. Even though we had done a lot of research on the process of buying a home, we learned a lot! During that meeting, we also chatted about our must-haves and deal-breakers, but Nick really took the time to get to know us as a couple, not just what we wanted in a home. Within a short period of time, Nick set up a 5 house tour on a Saturday with homes that he felt matched what we were looking for. He really nailed what we were looking for; remarkably, on that first outing, we were so happy with 2 of the houses, and decided to make an offer one a house that same night! Nick was incredible in explaining the conditional offer process, the documentation and all the implications, and we always felt very educated and confident about what was happening. Nick was right alongside us through the rest of the process, through the conditional offer, the inspection, lifting the conditions, finding a lawyer, right through to the closing. We couldn't have asked for a better agent to have guided us through this process! Nick is extremely knowledgeable, listens carefully and has a great sense of humor on top of it all. We are very glad to have met Nick and feel confident in recommending him unreservedly to anyone looking to begin the home buying process!
• Monica and Vince, Buyers in Fallingbrook
Even with the complications that covid causes, Nick was consistently professional and responsive. He was able to put in the weird hours and one unexpectedly late night that led to the sale of our home. And he also gives his clients pies at Thanksgiving. Who can argue with free pie?
• Lindsay, Seller in Beacon Hill South
"Nick was a highly recommended referral from a close friend who purchased a house in Ottawa with him about 5 years ago. It had been a year or so that my wife and I were snooping around the market to buy a house but when we decided to get serious about it, we contacted Nick and we didn't have to call or interview anyone else! What's great about him is that he's able to relate to the needs of both new and experienced clients as the testimonials and reviews about him clearly show. He's also friendly, cheerful, and professional. When we started the homebuying process, we had a general idea of what we wanted in a house but it wasn't until we went out with Nick on multiple trips to see houses that he helped us figure out what our needs actually were. His expertise and knowledge of every neighbourhood was great and we reaped those benefits to narrow down where we should be focusing our search. In the end we found the perfect property that was the right size, location, and price. We honestly couldn't be happier with what we got! Another thing I like about Nick is that he doesn't sugarcoat anything when it comes to a property and always gives his honest opinion about whether something is worth your while or not. I've heard stories of REALTOR®s who agree way too much with what their clients think or simply say what their clients want to hear in order to keep them happy. It's not the case with Nick because he was always objective about how good a property actually was and if there was something serious to consider, he would make sure we had all the facts before making a decision. There were a few times that we saw a listing and instantly fell in love with the pictures and description but Nick kept us grounded. I think as first-time home buyers, we were incredibly susceptible to the opinion of others so it was great to have Nick's experienced word to help us see the truth about each and every listing that caught our eye. In addition, we never felt any pressure from himl. He let us take the time we needed to evaluate a listing and ask our questions before going out to see it. There was no daily email to go and look at a place and he never made us feel like we needed to come up with a reason to not see a place or not make an offer. It felt like he perfectly understood our needs and respected the way we wanted to make decisions when looking at homes. Finally, what I like most about Nick is that he always made us feel like we were a priority. As first-time buyers, we had a ton of questions day in and day out and he always made time to answer our questions thoroughly. And if he was busy or spending time with his family, we always got a quick message to tell us when he'd have the chance to get to our questions. We're lucky to have had him throughout this process and I feel like just because our deal is done, we've got him in our corner for life and we can still go to him with any questions about our house when it comes to maintenance, repairs, or even decorating! Give him a call or send him an email, you won't be sorry!"
• Mike and Chieu, First-Time Homebuyers in Central Park
Top of the line, look no further! We wanted to find something quickly and Nick made that happen. We found our ideal home and closed all within only 6 weeks of contacting him. Flexible and responsive. I had a very positive gut feeling after first interactions with him and he surpassed our expectations. Sent us a fancy gift basket too!
• Kelly and Félix - Buyers in Ottawa East
"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
"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."
• Peng and Larena, Sellers in South Keys
I would highly recommend Nick! We had a one week house hunting trip and Nick really went above and beyond to support us and make himself available. He is very experienced, knowledgeable and responsive. As first time home buyers he helped understand the whole process and reduced our stress levels. He also remained very professional and neutral in helping with the decision making process.
• Warren and Andrea, Buyers in Sandy Hill
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
"Nick was worth every penny. We encountered many difficult and unforeseen issues during our buying and selling process. His background as a teacher was evident as he broke down each step in a clear, simple, yet thorough manner. We relied on him immensely and can’t imagine having gone through it without him."
