Testimonials

It was my first time working with Maureen, and my sister’s third time working with her. She helped us find an amazing investment condo in  downtown Ottawa. She took the time to understand our requirements and budget, and provided a lot of insight on current market value and the various neighborhoods in Ottawa. Not only did she assist us with the purchase, but she also assisted us in getting the condo renter ready, staging it, taking photographs, advertising it and securing a tenant. Working with Maureen made it a very smooth sailing process and we really appreciate all she has done. If given the chance, we look forward to working with Maureen again!  Rotbah and Rubama

We've been working with Maureen for over four years now - through two home purchases and renting out one of them - and we can't imagine a better person walking us through the process. She has always been forward thinking and never fails to offer sound advice when needed, specifically in terms of our rental and ensuring an always smooth transition between renters. We've been lucky to work with her and to now call her our friend.

Maureen -  Thank you for all your efforts over the last few months.  I understand that many of the tasks you accomplished (paying for leaf removal, chimney repairs, visiting on closing day, .....) go beyond the duties of a typical real estate agent.  And let's not forget the housewarming gift - which will be put to good use!!!  I can only conclude that during some of our extended conversations, I had mentioned that my quality of sleep could be better.  Well done!! -Paul

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!
