Testimonials

As a first-time homebuyer, Maureen helped me through the entire process, for quite a lengthy period I might add. She really understood my needs and wants. And she always had me in mind when she saw a house come on the market that would fit my needs. She was patient, kind, and a delight to work with throughout the entire process--which can be disheartening for buyers in a highly competitive market--but she was always positive, and we ended up finding a perfect home in an amazing location. I couldn't be happier. I have recommended Maureen to my friends, and I would recommend Maureen to any potential buyer or seller. She went above and beyond many times, from the start of the search right through to pointing me in the right direction when finding a real estate lawyer and a home inspector. Her communication, and explaining of things, throughout the process was also top notch. Maureen really cares about her clients, and she puts her clients' interests first. I look forward to working with Maureen again in the future.

Maureen made an overwhelming process seem easy. She was very informative, answering questions we didn’t even know we had.  She was quick to respond to all of our inquiries and very accommodating to our schedule.  We highly recommend her straightforward and transparent approach and look forward working with her again.

Please accept this note of gratitude for helping us with the most important step towards our new life in Ottawa. You exceeded our expectations by achieving the impossible - finding us the perfect home in a new city during a pandemic. We were impressed not only by your expertise about the real estate market, but also your dedication, honesty and integrity. Thank you again for taking the stress out of buying and selling our homes!

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.
