TESTIMONIALS

"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 realtors 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!"

"You met or exceeded all our expectations. This move is one of the biggest decisions we have ever made. Nick made the sale of our home a smooth and positive experience. Nick relieved our stress and helped to affirm our decision in moving."

• Chris and Michele, Sellers in Queenswood Heights South

"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

"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

You won’t regret having Nick in your corner. He knows his stuff and you can trust his recommendations on anything that can come up during the home buying process.

• Jerina - First-Time Home Buyer in Carson Grove

"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.

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 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

I would say that you were great to work with and very easy going. You made me feel comfortable to ask questions and felt like you always had my back. It's important to feel that a realtor is working with you and to get the best results for everyone. You were so helpful and put my mind at ease throughout the process up to the point of moving into my new home:).

• Wendy - Seller in Pineview and Buyer in Queenswood Heights

"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."
