My husband and I were very pleased with how professional and kind you were with us while you handled our home sale.
From finding a qualified home inspector, to staging and referring us to a qualified contractor to handle the renovations, you were the best!
We'll definitely be referring you to any of our friends and family who may be looking for an exceptional real estate agent.

I am writing to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation for the outstanding service provided by our realtor, Maureen. Her expertise and dedication were instrumental in helping my daughter purchase a 3-bedroom condo.

As co-signers, my husband and I had the pleasure of working closely with Maureen. She tirelessly assisted us in exploring 12 different properties, ensuring we found the perfect match for our needs. Maureen's invaluable support extended beyond the property search; she played a key role in securing the keys to our new home.

Moreover, Maureen's recommendations for property lawyers and broker managers were invaluable. Her professionalism and attention to detail greatly contributed to a seamless and successful real estate transaction.

We are genuinely impressed with Maureen's commitment to her clients and her ability to make the home-buying process smooth and enjoyable. We wholeheartedly recommend Maureen to anyone seeking a dedicated and knowledgeable realtor.

“Maureen is amazing to work with because she genuinely cares about her clients, she knows the Ottawa market, and consistently provides sound advice whether you are buying or selling a residential property. The recent sale of my condo was the fourth real property transaction I’ve done with Maureen as my agent, and despite current market conditions she got it sold within a month and for more than expected. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Maureen!”
Maureen provided an excellent service in the sense that she did not pressure us, she had our best interest at heart and was patient and ethical throughout the entire purchasing and selling process.
We have been working with Maureen for a few years now and shared with her about our desire to purchase a cottage property. Maureen took all our requirements and set up an online portal for us to look at properties that matched our criteria. Even though we took a very long time to decide or commit to a property, she never lost her patience. Drove 2-3 hours outside Ottawa to accompany us for showings. And after we found the property, she accompanied us through the inspection, referred us to contractors and anything else we needed for our renovations. Without Maureen we would not have been able to move forward with our incredible property. Thank you Maureen.
Multi-plex (buying and renting)
This was possibly the best of what Maureen provides. Due diligence and advocating for her clients. We were interested in investing in a multi-unit property in Ottawa, and finally found a great one! However, the seller was being difficult and Maureen blew us away with her negotiating skills and we were able to purchase a great investment property and also able to save money as well! Post purchase, she supported us in finding tenants for all our properties and as always took care of everything (staging, photos, reference checks for potential tenants). We couldn't be more pleased.
Renting (134 York Street):
When our last tenant gave notice, we reached out to Maureen again to help us secure a new tenant, and we were pleased at how quickly Maureen was able to get everything going. And my sister and I were lucky to find a tenant for our condo right away - which meant that it was not vacant at all! Thank you Maureen.

"Ms Yates handled the sale of my property quickly and with great efficiency. She went to great effort to research property values, to provide expert advice and services such as a preliminary inspection and staging, and made what is a stressful transaction very easy.

“I worked with Charlene and Maureen to ready a house for sale by an estate.  They followed their vision and dedicated time, energy, and focus into transforming a cluttered, worn dwelling into a light and airy home in just a few weeks time. Their market analysis and guidance on sale was spot on.  Nothing phased them and they met all challenges with humour and a practical approach. I will be looking to them on future sales.”

Maureen has been my trusted agent for several years now. Her attention to detail and dedication to her clients is exemplary …I strongly recommend Maureen Yates as  a real estate professional  whether you are buying or selling.
Maureen supported us for over a year before there was an actual transaction. She stayed with us the entire time, offering insights, changing and adapting to our needs and concerns and always with patience and grace. We never felt like we were wasting her time or pressured with anything. She listened to us and our refining needs. Maureen understands the importance of relationship over a quick transaction. And post transaction, Maureen was there with her people to offer hands on help with some minor physical issues.  We appreciate what you’ve done for us Maureen. Thank you!!
"Maureen went above and beyond to help me find my first home. She was active in sending listings tailored to me and honest about the pros and cons of each home. She made the buying process straightforward and fun. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."
