It was very stressful so we decided to find an agent.  We are very fortunate to have Vera and Tom, the dynamic duo!  With their years of experience in real-estates & the metro Ottawa area, they have provided us with valuable expertise opinions in selecting & viewing houses (we love listening to them).  They work in a timely & efficient manner.  In addition, they are patient and detail oriented (their lookout to even the weather report had helped us to get the inspection done just before the big snow storm!). 

They also provide excellent recommendations for other needs to complete the buying process as well as future home maintenance services.  We are in deep gratitudes to their service for finding our dream home.  We would definitely recommend and won't hesitate to use their service again.  Many thanks!"
