Testimonials

We cannot say enough good things about Maureen!
As a young family and first time home owners, we were apprehensive to start looking for a home when the time came. We also just moved to Ottawa recently and weren't positive on what area we wanted to buy into. From the very beginning we felt comfortable with Maureen, and have always gotten straightforward information and answers from her. At no time did we feel like she was trying to do anything but help us find an amazing home in a great location. Maureen was able to point us in the direction of an neighbourhood that we hadn't considered before, and we are so happy with the decision we made. She has visited on several occasions to check in and see how we are doing, and has been very helpful in recommending contractors to help us in our renovations. We would reccomended Maureen to anyone who is looking to buy or sell, and we would also reccomend her contacts for anything house related!

Thanks again Maureen!

As a first time home (condo!) buyer it was so important for me to work with someone who would take the time to walk me through the process and who wouldn’t rush me, since I really like to take my time to figure things out! Maureen was incredibly patient and understanding, and she really challenged me to look beyond what I thought I wanted and to find something that would make me happy every time I opened the front door. I’m so happy to have worked with her and would highly recommend her to anyone else looking for a home (and I do!).

Maureen was extremely generous with her time and expertise during our months of home hunting. She connected us with an incredibly thorough home inspector and saved us from committing to a couple of houses with structural issues. Her patience paid off and we found a home that fit our needs perfectly in a neighbourhood we love.

Who would show you homes for 11 months? Maureen was kind enough to spend all this time with us to make sure that we found the right place. Her dedication, patience and willingness to answer all of our questions helped us find the right home. We can’t thank her enough and we highly recommend Maureen Yates!

Maureen was a pleasure to have as our real estate agent. We were new to Ottawa and had no idea about where to start. Maureen took her time in helping us review different neighborhoods, helping us first learn about Ottawa and its neighborhoods. She was incredibly flexible as she took her time to help us look a wide selection of houses before we finally selected the home we live in today. She gave us time in the evenings and on weekends so that we didn’t have to adjust our own work hours. Maureen is also incredibly patient – she answered our numerous (and sometimes repetitive!) questions promptly whether it be over phone or email. When we needed expert opinions – she found the experts for us so that we were able to make informed decisions, right from the very beginning and even after we had moved to our home. The way Maureen supported us not only demonstrates her excellent skills as a real estate agent but also her dedication and kindness as an individual. Thank you Maureen in helping us make Ottawa our home!

"Maureen Yates skillfully supported me and my spouse towards buying our first home. She was professional, attentive, and very quick to determine our needs, ensuring that we were completely happy. At no point did we feel pressured to make a decision. Ultimately we got a truly fantastic home. I could not recommend Maureen Yates enough, and when we eventually move, we will be seeking her expertise again."
Derek and Annie
I was referred to Maureen by a friend when I was just starting to get serious about buying my first house. Maureen took the time to sit down with me and get to know my wants and needs when it came to my first home, and she quickly arranged viewings of a wide variety of places within my budget, which helped further narrow down what I was looking for. She happily took me back to places I wanted to see again on short notice, and responded to my texts and emails at all hours of the day. She deftly read my reactions to places that weren't quite right (or not right at all), and made sure we didn't waste time on lost causes. I really felt that Maureen understood me and my vision for my first home. I never felt pressured or rushed, and she had a great way of asking the right questions to really get to the heart of an issue. When I decided to put an offer in on the home I ended up purchasing, she was on the phone with me, and back and forth with the sellers' team, until past midnight, making sure I understood what was happening at every step. When it came down to it, Maureen always had my back and did everything she could to make buying my first home the best (and easiest) experience it could be. It's clear that Maureen cares deeply about her clients, and I'm so happy to have had her on my side when I was taking such a big step in my life!

Maureen walked me through my first home purchase and was fantastic throughout the journey! She is knowledgeable about market trends, incredibly professional (always on time and respond to questions very promptly), and offers candid and insightful advice. As a first time buyer, I had many questions throughout the process and Maureen was always very patient with me. She made sure that I did not rush into decisions that I would regret later, and took time to go over the pros and cons of each option with me. She is personable, full of energy, and enthusiastic about her work. I highly recommend Maureen! She is someone who will go above and beyond to help you find the perfect home.

Maureen gave a tremendous effort when helping my husband and I purchase an investment condo in Ottawa. We were very pleased with the results and it was a pleasure working with her. We will use her services again in the future.
