"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
"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
"Ce fut un plaisir de travailler avec Nick! Courtois et rapide dans ses réponses à nos (très) nombreuses questions que ce soit par courriel ou par téléphone ou en personne. En tant que premiers acheteurs, nous avons réussi grâce à son aide à rapidement trouver une première maison de rêve! Nous avons tellement hâte de déménager."
• Isabelle and Stephane, First-Time Homebuyers in Orleans
"My fiancée and I just used Nick's services to help find and purchase our first home, and we couldn't have chosen a better agent! When we started to look for a house, we were complete beginners. We really didn't know what to expect. We met Nick at our first showing, and he immediately helped us feel comfortable with the home buying process. He was always available to answer our questions honestly and accurately, even the ones we thought might be silly. Nick also showed his teacher side: he went the distance to point out potential questions or issues about which we hadn't even thought! And when he did, he was able to explain himself clearly and in a way that helped us think more intelligently about what to look for. Thanks to Nick, I can now explain what 'efflorescence' is, along with a whole slew of other home-related terms. Overall, from beginning to buying, Nick was reliable, knowledgeable, dedicated, and friendly. We are delighted with our new home, and have Nick to thank for helping us find the right one."

"Fenna and I want to thank you for the excellent way that you handled the sale of our property. You were thoroughly professional, you certainly went the extra mile to accommodate us and our circumstances. We would be happy to recommend you to anyone seeking real estate services."
• Bill and Fenna, Sellers in Katimavik Area
"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!"
• Bruno and Claudia, Buyers and Sellers.
"If it's not inappropriate, here's a great big virtual ((hug)) -- you are most wonderful !! I am so very grateful all your help/assistance and patience in dealing with me -- both re my first ever buying and selling experience over the past few years. You have always gone well above and beyond for me. That is why I consistently promote you to everyone that I know !!! I want people to know that when they get Nick, they get superb, personal, client service. You are quick to respond to every email/call and it's clear that your client's needs/concerns are yours as a real estate agent. When I first met you, as a first time ever home buyer, you walked me through every step. No question I ever asked was too silly or trivial. I was nervous and you guided me with no pressure to buy. Without a car of my own, you even took time out of your own schedule to drive me around town to view listings. When I sold my condo, years later, you took the time to do and send me complete and comprehensive analyses re whether I should rent or sell. And when I moved to Europe, you again went above and beyond to ensure that I was able to meet a tight closing date when I decided to sell. I cannot thank you enough!"

"Let me start by stating that Nick is a gentleman and a scholar, and he proved it through the trial that was our house search. We gave Nick a difficult task, on a tight timeline, and demanded that he deliver, and he did. In January 2019, I saw a mouse in my apartment and made the decision that I needed to move, and my wife and I were getting married in April 2019 and wanted to start out our life together in a place we owned. We interviewed several realtors, and informed each one that we were shopping around, we then went out on a couple of viewings with our candidates to test them out. Nick passed the muster each time, and with a smile. When we told him our timeline he was honest noting the difficulty, and describing a timeline and point of no return when the search would no longer be viable prior to the wedding. We estimated that we viewed 30 houses with nick, often seeing three to five in a two hour stretch. Nick took us out to see houses in record snow storms, drove us across the city, took our calls at all hours, and was patient along the way. As first time buyers, it was especially valuable to us that Nick made the time to explain each step in the process, and support us along the way. This combination of dedication to us as his clients, calm zen-like patience throughout, and personal charm made the stressful process of buying a house, and moving in (Nick was able to provide contacts for reliable services along the way) easy. The results are apparent, we closed on a house in a great location that met almost every criterion we set by March 15, only two months after launching our search. I don't have a comparative realtor for this process, so I am not able to say if this level of service is average, but what I can say, anecdotally, is that not every realtor we interviewed return our calls, was willing to compete for our business, and came through for us every time. Nick did and that speaks volumes for him both as a realtor, and more so of the quality his character. We are able to recommend Nick without reservation."
• Justin and Gurwinder, First-Time Homebuyers in Beacon 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
"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!"
