Having lived and worked in Kanata and Ottawa for many years, we are happy to share our knowledge with you.
Hello Joan, Luc, Victoria, We would like to take this opportunity to thank Joan, Luc, Victoria and the countless others who were fielding phone calls to keep the process smooth. We enjoyed forging a ‘partnership’ during the entire process of selling our home. You gave us invaluable renovation advice, excellent guidance on housing market conditions, outstanding marketing strategy, and solid negotiating skills and tactics. Throughout the process your business professionalism, discreteness, and positive attitude was of the highest standard. Many Thanks, D & S
My husband and I have bought and sold several properties over the years with the help of Joan Smith. Our grown children are now also using Joan Smith. We have always received excellent personal service, helpful advice and good results so, naturally, we contacted Joan again when we recently decided to downsize. We received two offers within four days of listing our home and accepted one of those offers which was over the asking price. Joan also helped us find our next home guiding us through the process. We have always recommended Joan Smith to others and will certainly continue to do so. Carol & Alan
Joan, In general we are quite happy with your service. Luc is very professional and also knowledgeable. Not only knowing well the neighborhood, he even knows each builder of the houses we have viewed. During the visit he would give us floor plans and point out all important details that we may neglect but on the other hand, give us space on our own judgement as well. His response to our follow up questions were prompt and clear. During our negotiation with seller's agent, he also gave us some important advice base on his good knowledge in order for us to secure the deal. We are glad to become neighbors with Luc and we are looking forward to have more connections with him and of course with your team in the future. Thanks, Wilber
Your results speak for themselves. Our house was sold in a challenging market within 45 days of being listed – at a good selling price. Your market evaluation was spot on. The house was shown to 20 prospective buyers in 40 days; a clear testament of your very effective staging, photography and marketing of the property. Negotiations for the Agreement of Purchase and Sale proceeded quickly and professionally. Your recommendations and advice were extremely valuable, and ultimately successful.
I just want to say that it was such a smooth and comfortable experience in selling my home with the Joan Smith Realty Team; I want to specifically point out the detail mark evaluation study performed by Luc, it was super beneficial for us to come up with a sell price that is in line with the current market and we are comfortable with as well, and also to Luc and Joan for their expertise in staging my home so that it looked wonderful in the photos taken, all of that definitely contributed in selling our home so quickly. In conclusion, the experience was top notch and I would not hesitate recommend your service to my friends in the future.
From beginning to end, we felt we were in the best hands for such an important transaction as the sale of our house. Joan and her team are experienced professionals, knowledgeable and friendly at the same time, and they made the whole process as stress-free as possible. Market evaluation was very thorough and spot-on. Staging, marketing and photography was very carefully done as well, with attention to detail. Negotiations and closing services: in our case, we now call Joan and her team the "miracle workers". Our house was sold in just two months, and we could not be happier.
From when we first met with you to discuss the selling our home we felt that we were working with a knowledgeable professional. You proceeded to review the steps for a successful conclusion. Everything from photos, advertising, open houses reflected you and your team's professionalism. The consummation of the sale could not have been accomplished with out your experienced negotiating and closing skills.
Selling a home is an emotional thing. Luc and Joan's team understand that and in fact took my emotional attachment to my home, put into pictures and words that captured it perfectly. I could talk for hours about my home. Luc summed it all up with a collection of excellent photos and brief description. Every step of the way I knew that I had Luc and Joan's team in my corner. Their experience and knowledge brokered a sale that I am very happy with. I thank Luc and Joan's team for their experience knowledge and understanding of not only the business but the client as well.
We are 100% satisfied with the service we have received. We tried to sell our house in the second half of November. It took only eight days to have a contract. We could not hope for a better outcome.
It is a great feeling to be able to trust the advice and expertise that you and your team provided us, particularly when it came to market evaluation and staging. As a military family, we have moved many times, and I can tell you that working with experienced realtors make a difference and reduces stress, because we don’t have to second guess your opinions.
I want to thank you, Joan Smith, Victoria, and Luc. You guys are amazing. You made us feel confident that our home would sell. Thanks for all the effort and time you guys put into our home. It was wonderful that you gave us information concerning the sale of the house as soon as you got the information and giving feedback. I will definitely recommend you guys.
The sale process was a great experience. The market evaluation based on your tremendous homework was absolutely fair and accurate. The staging was very good and there were a lot of great suggestions. The photography is professional and we love the pictures. We even felt that the pictures look better than the real house. The negotiations and closing services were also professional and helped us to release a lot of pressure during the process.
