REAL EXPERIENCES

I have recently benefitted from Shadi Bultaip's expertise in both selling a house and helping me to find a new home. From the very beginning we were impressed with his professionalism, drive and attention to detail. He was incredibly responsive any time we needed something. Shadi was extremely patient as I fine tuned what I was really looking for in a new home. He was on-time for every showing we went to (and there were many) and really took the time to know me and my particular needs. This was a very positive experience for me and I recommend Shadi very highly.

Ian Manion

Jen is an extremely trustworthy, reliable, and client-obsessed agent. She led our family through the process of finding our first home in Ottawa, organizing dozens of visits and guiding us through contract negotiations all the way to the final signature.
If you are looking for an agent that will give 150% to find what you are looking for, look no further!

If there ever was a realtor so passionate about her industry and client satisfaction, It would be Jen. She has been a guiding force for when I have had to have my investor hat on Or my regular Joe Hat. No star rating could truly encapsulate the professional that she is. She surrounds herself with quality partners who are likeminded. Anyone would be lucky to have her and her team on their side. After 4 years of various dealings, I continue to enjoy our working relationship and look forward to Ottawa's changing market with the team on my side.

Nathan Kyle

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Jen and Leo for the wonderful experiences I enjoyed while working with them over the last five years. They have been my “go to” agents for both residential and commercial properties. The Duo are honest, reliable, professional and fun to work with. It is great to see them meet and exceed my expectations every time in a crowded industry filled with real-estate agents lacking ethics and integrity.

Emad Ali

I purchased my first place with Jen. Working in sales myself, I appreciate how she made herself available whenever I needed her, followed up with me after my purchase and kept a close relationship. You are not just hiring a realtor but you are gaining a friend that is trustworthy, honest, passionate and fun to deal with. Jen's name is the only name I mention when a friend or relative is looking to be active on the real estate market.

Thank you for all that you have done. I hope I to continue being part of your success.

Christophe Mezher

What can I say? Jen, Leo and Shadi found us our “Forever home” before it even went on the market! They will search high and low for you, leveraging their contacts in the industry and even knocking on doors! They go above and beyond and have a genuine passion for what they do. Just be warned: don’t be surprised to gain some friends as part of the process!

Kelsey and Ben Mahon
