Testimonials

If you are looking for the ideal real estate agent in Ottawa, you need look no further than Maureen Yates. Her approach to her work is incomparable. As a first time home buyer, I was impressed by the genuine and personalized approach Maureen took to ensuring we would find a property that was no less than perfect. Her knowledge of the Ottawa condo/housing market is thorough and she worked endlessly with her team to walk me through each stage of the purchasing process in a way that made me feel heard, supported, and comfortable. I now have my perfect first "home" and I can't thank Maureen enough for that. She truly takes her clients' needs to heart and I can't sing her accolades enough. Not only is she a wonderful real estate agent, but she is equally a woman with character and kindness. Vanessa

It was an absolute pleasure working with Maureen. I felt she went way above the call of duty, helping not only with the selling my property, but also in finding what I wanted. My wants and budget were a challenge. The staging of my house was most impressive!! Helping with a failed septic system took such a weight off my shoulders! Downsizing is a challenge, and with her imagination was able to guide me in what I should keep. Her wit and humor got me through some discouraging times! Her motto " not meant to be " is so true.
I will recommend this wonderful lady in a heart beat to anyone I know who will be selling.
Thanks again Maureen .Emoji

It was our great pleasure to get to work with Maureen again. She not only helped us to find an amazing condo in the heart of Ottawa (and within our budget that ticks all the right boxes), she helped us with referrals for lawyer and mortgage broker. Maureen has superb knowledge about Ottawa neighbourhoods, condos, different builders. She ensured I was able to remotely review potential properties remotely as I was heavily pregnant and unable to go out frequently. Maureen guided us every step of the way from securing and purchasing the property and later to helping us to secure a tenant. She took the time to do the staging, taking photographs, listing our condo and helping us secure a tenant in record time even these uncertain times. This investment would not have been possible without Maureen’s time, expert opinion and guidance. Thank you Maureen for a fabulous experience once again.

Maureen was recommended to us through a friend of ours. We were first time home buyers, and she was a pleasure to work with and made the process as stress-free as possible. She was always available when we had questions (which was often!). She guided us through the entire process and thanks to her we bought our first house in an amazing neighbourhood at a great price!! We can’t thank you enough for all your help Maureen!

Maureen is very knowledgeable, thoughtful, and a keen negotiator. We have bought and sold several houses and our experience with Maureen as our agent was by far the best. Maureen took the time to understand what we were looking for and she was very responsive to our requests. Maureen went above and beyond, during and even post the purchase of our home with her many tips, insights, and excellent referrals. We highly recommend Maureen- look no further!

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!

"If you want a patient and kind realtor, stop right here!  I had just became an immigrant of Canada, new to Ottawa, and this was my first home purchase.  Maureen took the time and patience to help educate me on the geography of Ottawa.  Once she understood my needs and wants, we started looking at potential homes in the area.  She was always there, and went above and beyond through the entire process.  Let's just say, I love waking up to my view every morning no matter what the weather is like.  Thank you so much Maureen!!"

Maureen is professional, knowledgeable and patient. She knows the real estate market really well and does her research. She is passionate in what she does and it truly showed. She took the time to get to know me and my needs. She provided helpful advice, while remaining authentic, honest and impartial. She was always quick to respond to any questions and inquiries that I had, while being very patient in explaining the processes, addressing the concerns and answering questions. Even after the deal was closed, she took care of fixing some minor issues. It showed that she was very committed and caring. My experience as a first time home buyer working with Maureen was very pleasant and smooth, she is an exceptional real estate agent.

We found Maureen to be wonderfully caring, insightful, and always uplifting (even when the housing market was starting to get us down). She took the time to really get to know our family and what type of house we wanted and needed. She was realistic and honest about the houses we viewed. If it wasn't a good house for us, she was open about telling us the truth and watched out for us. We are really grateful for all of Maureen's time and extra effort in helping us finding our forever home!"
