Un très gros merci encore une fois pour tout! Ton experience et professionalisme nous ont été très utile lors de la vente de notre maison. Ce sera un moment que nous n'oublierons jamais!
...thanks for all of your help over the last few months.... I was certainly expecting the search to be a daunting preposition but you made it fun and informative. Your expertise and enthusiasm were appreciated!
he found us a qualified buyer in less than a day, and worked with her agent to agree on a price that we were very happy with. Two other homes on our block were listed before ours (one by owner and one with a different agent) and they were both still on the market after ours had cleared all conditions.
high level of professionalism, knowledge, integrity and work ethic made buying a new home a very efficient and relatively stress-free experience. We were very impressed by his ready availability to answer questions. We would highly recommend Ray to anyone buying or selling a home!
It was great working with you on getting the house. Really appreciate your work ethics.
An extremely knowledgeable and all around good person. He is also a fantastic real estate agent! He sold my house for its asking price on the first day of showing. His knowledge of the real estate market in Ottawa combined with great marketing skills and technological savvy make him extremely effective as an agent.
Thank you for all of your terrific assistance in finding and purchasing our first home. We could not have found a better realtor, and your knowledge of Ottawa's real estate market was a valuable asset.
Thanks for all your help. The time and effort you invested helped make our first home purchase a fun and enjoyable time.

Please accept our heartfelt thanks. We greatly appreciated your assistance with the sale of our house. We have dealt with a number of real estate agents over the last fourty years. From our experience with you, it is evident why you are one of the top-rated agents in the region.
You are THE best!
Thanks again for all your help in buying our new home and selling the old one. I would never buy or sell a house without a real estate agent (don't know how private sellers do it...) and that agent would have to be you.
Ray, we really appreciated your honest opinions, prompt responses and guidance for both the purchase and the sale of our home. Having you leading the way made us more comfortable and helped us to better understand each step of the process. Thanks!

Thank you Ray! Your friendliness and dedication was refreshing in a world where customer service is not always apparent. You really knew how to set our minds at ease with the time consuming process of buying and selling a house.
Ray's wealth of knowledge, combined with a sincere dedication to his clients, proved invaluable to us throughout the home buying process. He took the time to understand what we were looking for and tailored his service to meet our specific needs. In the end, his expertise and excellent advice gave us the edge we needed to obtain the home we wanted. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone we know.

Thanks Ray. Everyone should be lucky enough to have you as their agent
It was so comfortable having you as our real estate agent. We felt absolutely no pressure at all. We will recommend you to anyone we know that's in the market for a home in the Ottawa area.
I would like to thank you once more for providing us with excellent service. Be assured that we will recommend you to our friends when they are in need for a realtor.
I am superglad to have you on my side!
We found Ray to be very friendly and easy to talk to. Right from the very first day we felt very comfortable expressing to him our needs and wants.
We wanted to thank you for making our home buying experience a truly wonderful experience. I have dealt with other real estate agents before and their service pales in comparison to yours.
He was always available and able to accommodate my very busy schedule, very prompt with emails and phone calls, and seemed to intuitively know what I was looking for. He was extremely pleasant, and truly surprised me with the amount of knowledge he had about all the homes we viewed.
He seems to love his job very much & will go the extra mile for his client. I would definitely recommend his services and return to him should I be in the process of buying again.
You made the whole process run very smoothly. In short, excellent service.
We can't thank you enough, Ray you have definitely outperformed any real estate agent we have known or dealt with. The service you provide your clients is outstanding. We will be recommending you to anybody we know who will be looking for a real estate agent. We will definetely be dealing with you again should we deceide to sell or buy.
You won't be forgotten! Your a great agent always quick - Johnny on the spot!
Michael, Sarah and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you so much for all the hard work you did for us. I remember the first time Sarah talked to you on the phone, she said "Mom he's so nice and pleasant - can't wait to meet him." I must say Sarah was right, you were pleasant, patient and really helpful throughout.
It is definitely well worth the effort of cleaning and repairing your home in order to be sure of making a faster home sale in Ottawa at your desired asking price. This is because first impressions are very important – you want potential buyers to be attracted to your property right from the start.
In our experience the homes that sell fastest and most easily are always those that appear to have been well looked after. For this reason it is very important to take a long and critical look at your property and try to spruce it up as much as possible prior to inviting potential buyers to come and look.
Buying a home or other real estate in Ottawa is probably one of the largest financial transactions you are ever likely to make - which is why you want to be absolutely certain of getting all the details right.
