I would highly recommend Sylvie Bégin's Home Team at Keller Williams Ottawa Realty... Sylvie listed my house in Beacon Hill North and as soon as the listing appeared on MLS, it sold in a matter of 8 days ....
Her staff kept me appraised on a daily basis of all the showings... Even though the team had a busy workload in dealing with all their clients, they handled the sale of my home with utmost professionalism and dedication.
I felt special and they treated me as such... I would not hesitate to deal with Sylvie's Home Team again... " Lynne Boily
We are writing to express our complete satisfaction in the help you provided us in the selling of our house. We especially appreciated your level of professionalism, your degree of organization, and how you made the entire process look so easy. From the time you walked into our home and made your presentation, we knew immediately you were the person for us.
We also want to congratulate your "team" who throughout the selling/showing process made themselves very accessible and supportive. From picture taking to providing timely feedback, we were impressed with the level of promptitude and the courteous manner with which we were treated. In short, having put such a great team together only proves your excellent leadership skills.
We will not hesitate in recommending your services to our friends and our clients.
Once again, thank you for everything!" Jeanne d'Arc and Raymond Doucet
Nous aimerions te dire combien nous avons trouvé ton énergie et ton enthousiasme contagieux, et que ta façon de travailler contribue, de façon significative, à donner une excellente image aux professionnels de la vente immobilière.
Nous avons été convaincus de tes capacités dès notre première rencontre et tu ne nous a pas déçus, bien au contraire! Tu nous as tout expliqué, clairement et franchement, en te basant sur une recherche du marché très approfondie, et, facteur très important pour nous, en tenant compte de nos attentes. Par conséquent, quand nous avons pris la décision de vendre notre condo, cela a été en bonne connaissance de cause. Et cela a été une excellente décision, puisque, notre condo s'est vendu en un temps record - quelques jours - exactement comme tu le prévoyais!
De plus, tu as su t'entourer d'une équipe très efficace et professionnelle; Wendy, Martin et Linda nous ont traités avec courtoisie et gentillesse, et ils ont répondu à toutes nos questions. Voilà qui a contribue largement à diminuer le stress qui, normalement, fait partie des transactions immobilières!
Si jamais nous avons besoin de tes services à nouveau, nous n'hésiterons certainement pas à te faire signe. encore une fois, merci!" Marie-Josée et Simon Piché.
These Sellers tried to sell their home privately... then they found Sylvie...
Professional and Thorough
"... we were impressed with your drive and your track record. We found that you had determination in your approach to selling a house, but remained tactful and polite. These were qualities which we were looking for, as we did not wish to engage the services of a realtor who was too "laid back", nor one who was aggressive to the point of being "pushy". You had the balance of qualities which we were looking for in a realtor." Monica & Ardavan Tajbakhsh
"... Your professional, thorough and cheerful approach to real estate has left me with good memories despite some difficult negotiations. Even my lawyer commented that he can not recall a more difficult real estate transaction than the one involving the purchase of my current home. You shielded me from the unpleasantries while keeping me abreast of all developments. The final outcome was what I wanted and I thank you." Russ McMurchy
Sincerity, Honesty and Enthusiasm
"We would like to thank you and the team on successfully selling our home on Uplands Drive. In particular, we appreciated your sincerity, honesty and overall enthusiasm throughout the task. We believe we got a fair price, thanks to your diligence in surveying the market in our area. George & Alanna DaNova
