Testimonials

We wanted to sell our family home of thirty years and use the sale to build a retirement home on our lake property, we selected Chantal because of her past history with us and family members (three houses sold and one found)
We knew Chantal would be the best sales professional to help us in determining the true market value for our area, staging our home to make it appear its best, and to aggressively promote the house to perspective clients.
Chantal arranged for professionals to stage and to photograph/video the house; generated an excellent sales brochure (electronic & hard copy); posted virtual tour along with the listing; hosted several open houses and followed up with potential buyers.
Chantal understood that selling the house after living there for thirty years and raising a family there was an emotional experience for us.
When considering any potential conditional offers we were very impressed with the effort Chantal had put into evaluating their home and listing.
Chantal is a true professional with an excellent reputation and sales record. The outcome was a successful sale meeting all our expectations

My husband and I sought Chantal’s services on recommendation of a friend when buying our first house, and we were not disappointed. Chantal was professional, and immediately made us feel at ease. She took the time to explain the ins and outs of buying our first house and went above and beyond what was needed of her. I have recommended her to many friends, acquaintances and coworkers and will continue to do so.

Buying our first home was a very exciting and at the same time a little intimidating of an experience. Todd and I had no idea what to expect and where to start. The very first house we decided to look at was a house Chantal was selling and we liked her personality right away and asked her to help us . After quite a few houses we found our perfect first home . Chantal doesn’t just sell you a house she took us from start to finish. What I will always remember is Todd and I had been pre-approved with 10% down so we knew that was going to be tough but again Chantal had a name for us to call and the next day we called a broker who found us a lender at 5% down….that was such a relief . I will always recommend Chantal when I hear people are looking and at this moment she is finding a friends their very first home and we have every faith that she will . You really need to find to find someone you can trust with such a big investment in life and we wouldn’t seek anyone else when it comes to finding the perfect home.

The thing that impressed me most was Chantal’s honesty with us. I had a pre-determined image that realtors were much like used car salesman and would do/say anything for a sale. This notion was dispelled with the first visits with Chantal. Her confidence and knowledge made us feel very comfortable and her advice invaluable. As this was our first purchase, she really helped to provide us with the most appropriate information. She was very patient with us and our seemingly never ending list of questions! Chantal was keen and really took the time to listen and understand what we were looking for, even when sometimes we weren’t sure ourselves. Honestly, we were not disappointed with any aspect of our dealings with Chantal.

– Judy and Phil, Barrhaven

Throughout the entire process Chantal was amazing! She allowed us to look at the homes and discuss but was always there for any and all questions we had. Working with Chantal was so much better simply because we were so comfortable with her. She was knowledgeable, respectful and organized. When making this huge decision we weren’t nervous as Chantal was there to answer all our questions and concerns. Every step of the way we were informed and relaxed. We love our new home, but we also know when it comes time to sell it – Chantal will be the obvious choice once again!! We recommend Chantal to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home.

I have used Chantal on several occasions. The main reason I keep going back to her is she is calm in the stressful situation of both buying and selling. I first used her to buy a townhouse in Carleton Place. She was wonderful when it came to dealing with a not so wonderful agent on the other end of the deal. She helped me buy the home and obtain the price and requests I had during negotiations. When I went to sell this home a few years later, after some very unsuccessful attempts with Grapevine, Chantal was able to help me sell the town home and move on to where I needed to be. She was calm in a very stressful time. And most recently she has helped with my newest home. She worked aggressively with the realtor on a deal that happened quite quick as the home was on the market for two days only. She was great in helping with other connections as well such as referrals to mortgage brokers and lawyers. In all of my dealings with Chantal she is prompt in responding to my questions and courteous in her replies. I probably would not be in my home today if I did not have Chantal to negotiate on my behalf. She knows how to push when it is required but maintains integrity and professionalism at the same time.

 I was actively trying to find my first property for investment purposes.  Since I had a specific type of property in mind and wanted representation to protect myself legally and otherwise, I was also seeking a realtor to assist me. Also, given it would be my first purchase, I wasn’t ready to negotiate on a property on my own.  As I was browsing property advertisements on Kijiji I came across an advertisement that Chantal had posted offering her services. Since I had a recent falling out with my previous realtor I was in need of a new realtor to represent me in my property search. Upon reviewing Chantal’s ad and website, I decided to contact her seeking her services.  All of my previous realtors were of an older generation and were more focused on their commission than my actual needs and desires for my first investment property. Being that Chantal was a younger realtor, I felt that she would be more open to working “with” me and taking the time to listen to my needs and take the time to truly understand my needs and help find what I wanted.  Right from the initial communication I had with Chantal I established my desires for the properties I was interested in and she respected my needs. There were some finer details that previous realtors had imposed on me (locking me to them for a specified period of time that was beyond reasonable) that Chantal did not attempt to do with me. Chantal gained my trust in her and in realtors in general again. Ultimately I was able to find and successfully negotiate the purchase of my first property.  Chantal listened to me and took the time to understand what I wanted. She supported me throughout my aggressive negotiation on the closing price and at no point did I see her waver from wanting to help find me the property that I wanted. The potential commission never appeared to a part of her equation, as was the case with previous realtors I had worked with. Chantal as also always very willing to explain things to me when I had questions and she never sugar coated anything. Chantal always provided a truthful and honest opinion in our discussions. As a result I was able to learn many things about the purchasing process as well as other real estate details.  Working with Chantal was successful because she took the time to understand a client’s true needs and does not try to tell them what they want. Chantal goes above and beyond the call of duty to help her clients and she is always upfront and honest. Chantal is also a genuine person, knowledgeable and very personable. All of which make her a great realtor.  The main thing Chantal did for me was not try to tell me what I wanted and to try to convince me to look at properties that were not what I was interested in based on my description of what I wanted. Knowing that I could trust her to respect my needs was paramount for me.  If a potential client was on the fence about whether to work with Chantal I would tell them to just talk to her. Unlike other realtors I have dealt with I could tell right away that Chantal would listen to me and take the time to understand my needs. This to me is critical in finding a good realtor.  You can tell people to call me for a personal referral (as I have already done with other people I know, 1 of which also bought a house with Chantal and are now planning to sell their current house and buy another with her.) Repeat business is the true sign of a good realtor and I already plan to use Chantal for all future real estate transactions.  I have already recommended Chantal to several people. I always tell them that if you want someone who will work hard for you, be honest with you, trustworthy and who will find you what you want, call Chantal.

I was very impressed at how much you really cared about us. It made the whole experience enjoyable and I can say that I felt my wife and I were provided with the best service.I don’t think there were any additional services that could be offered. We seemed to cover every base completely. Thanks for all the help, you were awesome!!!

– David Boileau, Ottawa

Chantal was very professional during all showings, negotiations, etc. She was very easy to work with and this made me feel more comfortable while going through all the processes of trying to find the right home. I didn’t feel pressured or pressed for time from Chantal, even though I knew the clock was ticking. She was always available to answer questions, respond to emails and give me guidance about various properties.

– Jodi, Carleton Place

I liked that Chantal was very patient with us. We looked at numerous houses, all of which were outside Ottawa, and she was always very accommodating. Chantal was a pleasure to work with. She made the whole experience seem effort less. I appreciate everything she did, and could not have asked for anything else. I especially liked that she took the time to explain everything as we were first-time home buyers!!

– Christie Vanderburg, Ottawa

We`ve been lucky to fall upon Chantal a few years ago when she was referred to us by our neighbor. This is the second home that we`ve sold through her. She is a great example of a real-estate agent that works on behalf of her customer. She`s pleasant, trustworthy, timely and very professional. We have often sent our friends her way and are always pleased to hear that she`s taken great care of them.
