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.

When Andrea and I got married last year the next big step in our lives was to find a home. From the moment we were introduced to Maureen, we knew we had found someone that will help get us there. Maureen took the time to understand what was important for us, she asked the right questions, understood the market and a Professional the entire way. Maureen was always on time, easy to get a hold of and worked on our schedule.   Her expertise with the paperwork & contracts, her knowledge of financing and neighborhoods made things easy for us. Maureen has a positive energy she’s fun to be around and made the entire process enjoyable. We thank Maureen for helping finding us our new 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.
Ayana and Andrew Forward
We would like to express our sincere appreciation for Maureen in selling our home in Hunt Club Park in the summer of 2017 in a timely manner. She handled the process from the beginning to the end smoothly, making it as easy as possible. She took care of setting up our home, providing advice to ensure that the house showed well.
She was always available to respond to our numerous questions on phone, email or in person if needed, always with patience and humour. She set up signage, arranged for professional photographs and did open houses and communicated with other agents. Maureen took care of everything professionally by talking to the buyers agent, arranging for the lawyer including getting us a rental house. She was always cheerful, considerate and respectful. We always felt that she was working for us and kept our interests topmost in the negotiation process. Even after the house was sold, she kept in touch to make sure that everything was going well for us. Not just as an agent but as a friend!
Considering the pleasant experience we had with her, we would recommend Maureen to all, including our friends and family. If and when we require real agent services again we will gladly consider Maureen again. Thanks Maureen! You took all the stress out of our home sale.
