The Path Home


                              Buyer Representaion

                              Seller Representation





We were relocating to the Ottawa area from a different province and Mike was recommended to us.   We made contact and informed him of our requirements from which he compiled a list of properties that would suit our needs.  He had all of the details in place before our arrival in Ottawa, which ensured our limited time here was well utilized viewing homes.

His professionalism, his relaxed and friendly demeanour as well as his attention to detail took the stress out of the whole process.   He represented our needs extremely well.   Even as we returned to our home province, he continued to work here on our behalf, keeping us informed of all details and progress.  This continued on during and after our move, making our transition to Ottawa a smooth one.

We would highly recommend Mike for any real estate needs!

“My wife and I are relocating to Ottawa this summer and to get a head start on the process, decided to look at the condo market as prices were still quite reasonable. A friend of ours recommended Mike as very knowledgeable, personable, and sensitive to his client’s requirements, so we looked him up. Within a day of making contact and a quick email exchange, Mike already spotted several good listings and by week’s end of arriving in Ottawa for our house hunting trip, we found an ideal condo apartment in a very desirable neighbourhood that fit well within our budget. I wholeheartedly recommend Mike’s services as his dedication to his client’s needs will find you the ideal home  at the right price.

"As someone living and working abroad and trying to find a builder and a suitable house plan as well as a good location, Mr. James jumped in head first and went well beyond the normal service by contacting the agent for the builder, visiting the site outside Ottawa, providing guidance and advice on all aspects of the purchase and the build.  The home was completed on time and I was able to move in on the planned date.   I was always confident his advice was sound.  As a first time home buyer, Mr James showed lots of patience and tolerance when responding to my many questions about the process.  I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mr. James to former colleagues and friends.     A.

"Michael, I wanted to thank you for your patience and persistence in helping us find the right properties.
I know it is a challenge to satisfy one client let alone the six of us.  I especially appreciate your calm demeanor when working through the speed bumps to making a satisfactory deal.  Particularly the “property lean” issue.
I expect many others would have walked away in fear. Your professionalism and initiative in getting the correct information was, I am certain, a major factor in our getting clear title and a great value.
We look forward to working with you on the next one.
Thanks again."                 C. Dunn - Ottawa


Mike-All went well with closing. Thank you very much with your assistance in helping us locate our new home in Ottawa. We will definitely recommend you to our friends and many colleagues who will be relocating to Ottawa.

Best regards,

D. Gautier & E. Shalita

Professional background


As a professional - I enjoy the learning process.  Continuing education allows me to always be on top of my game.  When buying or selling a home, the right step is to work with an experienced professional.  Who has the understanding and know-how to help you have a smooth transaction and get the best resultsout of each opportunity.  I possess the technology, personality, people skills and business management to market and attend to all of your real estate needs.

Most of all I feel the key to my business is establishing relationships with my clients.  These assets, in combination with experience and my attention to detail allows me to make sure your home purchase or sale goes as smoothly as possible.  Strong follow-up ensures you know what's going on during the entire process. 

I am patient, persistent and committed to helping you achieve your dreams. There are aspects of real estate sales that seem pretty simple. There are many elements of a smooth transaction, however, that are complicated and daunting.

I can help you with every aspect of buying or selling your home because I'm experienced, because I'm professional...and because I care to  provide the best quality service to my clients.
