Working with Nick to sell my home was as easy as possible. From getting everything going and setup, the sale, and even after the sale he was always responsive, honest, and straightforward. Despite all the wrinkles that Covid-19 caused, Nick was on the ball the entire time.
• Aaron, Seller in Beacon Hill South
Nick was fantastic, personable and knowledgeable. Went above and beyond in his research to provide context about the neighbourhood and similar listings, and was always available to help.

"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 REALTOR®s, 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 and his team were such a great help to us as we purchased our first home in Ottawa! Despite working with him from out of town and during the pandemic, he was able to show us multiple homes virtually and gave great advice. I would highly recommend him and his team!
• Lesley and John, Home Buyers in Ottawa East
"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
"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
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
The real estate world is crazy and overwhelming right now. But, having Nick as our REALTOR® definitely made it a super smooth process! Nick made everything so easy for us! As a busy family, with 3 young kids, he helped to keep everything super organized, was always easy to reach if we had questions or concerns and is obviously very experienced and knowledgeable!
• Courtney and Matthew - Sellers in Chatelaine Village
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?
