"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
"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!"
• Stephen and Nancy, Sellers in Beacon Hill North
"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.
"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
"You have been very helpful and we trust you. I would not hesitate to recommend you to others."
• Svetlana and Ryan, Landlords in Riverside South
"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!"
• Becky and Dave, Home Buyers in Orleans
"We had an excellent experience working with you. We appreciated your flexibility and constant availability when it came to meetings and house showings. . . and your prompt email responses. We felt very well taken care of. We couldn't have asked for a better first-time home buying experience. You took away any apprehension that we had about the process and guided us through with ease. We were 100% confident that we were working with a competent and trustworthy agent. We appreciated all the hard work you put in, including answering evening e-mails and organizing showings quickly around our busy schedules. We initially weren't sure if we wanted to work with a real estate agent, but you showed us how easy and pleasant the process could be!"
• Jen and Erin, Buyers in Ogilvie Walk Area

• David and Jeannie, Buyers in Hunt Club Golf Course Area
"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 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.
