A Buyer’s Guide for the Ottawa Real Estate Market
Make Purchasing Your Next Home an Easy, Stress-free & Safe Experience by Relying on Expert Guidance You Can Trust
Your Customized Roadmap to Success
Fine-Tune Your Goals
Let’s start with a consultation. That way both of us can better understand your current goals as well as your long-term hopes and dreams. As a natural born problem solver, I’ll guide you through several strategies specific to your needs, and from there, we’ll craft a personalized service plan that works best for you.
Provide Expert Service Support
Getting the best home at the best rate requires a whole host of real estate service professionals including reliable inspectors, lawyers, mortgage brokers, etc. My team and I are there to serve you and ensure the entire process runs smoothly and yields the best ROI.
Find the Right Community
To help clients unfamiliar with Ottawa make the most informed decision possible, I offer customized info packages that include school ratings, investment potential as well as proximity to restaurants, shopping and green space. I’ll even host neighborhood tours so that my clients can get a feel for different areas.
Access Off-Market Properties
I have spent years forging working relationships with other Realtors, earning a reputation as a trustworthy collaborator. Consequently, I am often privy to listings before they hit the market. For you, the client, that translates to greater buying opportunities.
Get the Best Price
As a longtime expert in the Ottawa real estate market, I have refined the art of property price evaluation. But my approach is far from cookie-cutter and experience has taught me that every transaction has its own variables. This is why I approach every offer with a personalized strategy geared toward achieving the best possible outcome for my clients.
Close the Deal Efficiently
Finalizing the purchase of a home requires a lot of coordination, with details, big and small, to contend with. That’s where my team truly shines. After the offer is accepted, my team of experts and I oversee every last step of this exciting journey in a way that’s fun, stress-free and safe for you.
Forge Long-lasting Work Relationships
There’s so much more to buying a home than signing on the dotted line. That’s why I extend my services and support to clients well after the deal has closed. In fact, clients often reach out to me years after they’ve purchased to ask for recommendations for things like trades people, painters, renos etc.
How to Choose the Best Realtor for You
It’s About Much More Than Just Closing the Deal
Whether it’s a primary residence or an income property, buying a home is a huge investment, possibly the biggest investment of your life. You need a Realtor you trust. Really trust. So, when you’re looking for a Realtor, it’s important to look at more than just the total sum of all his/her real estate transactions. Numbers don’t tell the whole story. Here then, are three things to factor into your decision-making process:
1. What is this Realtor’s sales pitch style?
When you meet with a Realtor, do they make you feel at ease or do they revert to pushy sales tactics? Is the conversation thoughtful and genuine or does most of what the Realtor says feel scripted? Look for someone who listens first and foremost.
2. What do past clients have to say?
A good place to start is by asking friends, family and trusted colleagues for recommendations. When looking to online reviews, open platforms such as Google Reviews tend to paint a more accurate picture of past client experiences (good or bad) than handpicked testimonials from someone’s personal website. Your Realtor should have no issue providing you with references from past clients who are willing to discuss their experiences with you.
3. How well does this Realtor know the market?
When it comes to making one of the biggest investments of your life, a one-size-fits-all approach won’t do. Work with a Realtor who has a deep understanding of the Ottawa real estate landscape, someone with a proven track record for coming up with creative strategies for buying homes in this city.
