Testimonials

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."

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.

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.

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.

I cannot say enough good things about Maureen! It was obvious from our first meeting that Maureen is truly dedicated to helping her clients find the perfect home while making it a fun and exciting process. As a first time home buyer, Maureen was super helpful in answering any questions I had regarding the process and kept me informed of every step along the way. Additionally, I can honestly say that Maureen goes above and beyond for her clients. Even after the deal had closed, Maureen continued to follow up with me to see if there was anything else I needed. Maureen booked a painter and a handy man to work on my new home and even came to meet them on her own time while I was at work. Maureen is incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to the real estate industry and is overall a wonderful person to work with. I would recommend Maureen to anyone!

Maureen was recommended to us by someone we trust. It turned out to be a great recommendation. Our transaction was a bit more complicated than a standard one in that we were selling our rural property, moving to a downtown rental apartment, and as part of the deal we bought (and then resold) the house owned by the buyers of our rural house. Maureen guided us through all phases of this, and did so with great expertise, professionalism, and enthusiasm. If you are looking for someone who has a genuine interest in making sure your interests are looked after, we recommend you contact Maureen. She has great knowledge of the industry, and she is truly an honest broker. Charlotte and Larry, Ottawa, Ontario

I highly recommend Maureen Yates to anyone looking to buy or sell a home - you will not be disappointed! A friend referred me to her a few years ago, and since then Maureen has been my real estate agent on three occasions (twice when purchasing a home and once when selling), and I was very happy with the results she achieved each time. Maureen is fantastic to work with - she is very professional, hard-working, attentive, organized, resourceful and full of energy! She knows the market and provided me with helpful, objective guidance based on my needs, wants and budget. In my experience, she goes above and beyond for her clients and truly has their best interests at heart. Thank you Maureen, I look forward to working with you again in the future!
