What my clients are saying about me!!
Many thanks, Roger and Chereen
People often use the phrase, "words cannot describe" in an attempt to describe just how fantastic something or someone is. Stephen George is certainly a person to whom that phrase can be applied. However, we believe that there are some words that can describe just how wonderful Stephen is and how happy we are to have had him as our agent.
In our quest for a new house there were many trips to see many properties. There with us each step of the way was Stephen, travelling from Orleans to Stittsville or Richmond to see a property with us. Often he did this knowing that the house wasn't right for us because it was either not within our budget, did not meet the features we were looking for, or required immediate renovations that were not in our plans. Nonetheless, he let us do the visits and come to that realization on our own. After what seemed like an eternity, but was probably only a few weeks, of this we starting getting anxious. We wanted to view anything that was even remotely attractive. Stephen was a calming influence, ensuring us that more properties would be listed in the coming weeks and that we would find the house we wanted. He was right. We found a place that had everything we wanted and more. Patience paid off and Stephen ensured that we stayed committed to our budget and desired features.
Months before we even listed our house Stephen willingly visited us and made suggestions on little things we could do to make the house "pop". We didn't do everything he suggested, but after doing a lot of what he suggested we were asking ourselves, "why didn't we do this sooner so that we could enjoy it too?”. Stephen’s suggestions made a huge difference. When a neighbour listed their house on the same day as us, but for less, we were a bit worried. Our worries were soon put to rest. The day after it was listed, our house was sold (for 99% of our asking price) to a couple who had also viewed our neighbour's house. The neighbour's didn't use Stephen George and their house took almost six weeks to sell.
You will not be disappointed to start a relationship Stephen. You will make a friend who knows the market, cares deeply about your unique situation, respects your budget, is always available (early in the morning or late at night), and goes above and beyond to ensure your happiness and satisfaction.
Stephen; you're the best!
Warmest Regards, Shawn & Erin Grant

Steve, we just wanted to say THANK-YOU for the OUTSTANDING service you have delivered in representing us as our Real Estate agent on the six, yes six, real estate transactions we have closed with you. Your prompt follow-ups and your keen sense of understanding to just what we were looking for each and every time we purchased or sold real estate has been most appreciated.
In each real estate sale, our homes have had tremendous success in selling in very short order and always above our expectations with regards to the prices obtained at closing.
Your attention to detail in helping us stage our home has been one of the main reasons why the sale of our homes were so successful.
When it came to purchasing, you took the time to understand what we were looking for and narrowed down the searches based solely on just what we were looking for.
Your professional service in keeping us up to date and always making yourself available made us feel truly confident that we were in great hands.
Being a family man yourself, you really understand what is important for other families. The fact that you came to all our home inspections and wanted to ensure we were getting the right home for our family always added to our confidence in you.
Lastly, you make clients feel as if they are your only clients and you always make time to answer questions whatever they may be.
Thank-you again and we continue to highly recommend you for someone looking to buy or sell real estate.
We look forward to working with you on our next real estate deal!

We would like to acknowledge the excellent service provided by your realtor Stephen George. From the beginning Stephen showed determination, professionalism and encouragement. Stephen was always in contact with us regarding feedback after showings and open houses. We appreciated all his hard work from listing the house to the closing. We have been and will continue to recommend Stephen to our friends and colleagues.

It's definitely true that buying or selling a home can be one of life's most stressful experiences. And, I speak from personal experience when I say that Stephen George cut that stress with his attentive, professional and no-pressure nature. Even in uncertain economic times, Stephen guided me though the quick sale of my home with his sound marketing advice, accurate assessments and effective negotiation skills. Trust me when I say that there is more to selling a home than just posting a sign on your front lawn...go with an agent like Stephen who knows his community, is available to answer your questions, and can also be trusted. Thank you, Stephen!

We just wanted to drop you a quick email to thank you for all of your help with the sale of our home.
From the start of this whole process to the end (which was less than a week!) we have felt more than comfortable with you at the helm. This has been effortless for us and we are so happy we made the decision to go with you as our real estate agent. From the listing of the house, to the showings, you have always considered our needs first and made sure that we were completely comfortable with every direction you were taking before actually doing it. I will definitely recommend you to all of my friends and family and if you ever need someone to assure a potential client that they are making the right decision, don't hesitate to ask!
Best of luck in the future and I hope we get a chance to see each other before we leave!

Attention: Mr. Ricciuti (Broker of C21 Action Power Team Ltd.)
This letter is to compliment Stephen George for the outstanding work he did in assisting us with finding our home in Orleans. Because of our jobs we had to relocate from Saskatchewan to Ottawa. Both of us did not know the city or anyone who lived in it. We were referred to Stephen by another coworker who also relocated to Ottawa.
For six months leading up to our house hunting trip Stephen provided us with updated listings pertaining to the type of houses we were interested in. The thought of having only five days to come to Ottawa and find and buy a house was extremely stressful. The actual trip couldn't have been more smooth thanks to Stephen. He dedicated his entire week to assisting us in any way possible. He assisted us in every facet including getting a car seat for our child after the one from the car rental company had broken. He had contacts in every type of service that was needed for purchasing a house and getting established. Being that we didn't know the place and didn't know anyone this type of assistance was more valuable then you will ever know. Stephen instilled us with confidence through his knowledge and savvy business skills through out the entire process. We completely trusted in Stephen and in the end had a successful house hunting trip.
I will be recommending Stephen to everyone that I know, and for that matter I would recommend Century 21 if this is the type of professionalism that is instilled in their employees.
In closing, I would like to restate how pleased we are with the service and continuing treatment we have received with moving to Ottawa.
