Customer Testimonials

 

"Stephen George provides excellent advice to help you sell your home and negotiate a really fair deal for your next purchase. He provided us tips to prepare our home for sale and an educated view on what buyers are looking for. Stephen was able to sell our house within hours. He provided trusted trades and recommended inspectors and followed up with us. He was there through the process and even came once we moved in and provided further advice on paint colours he has seen and interesting ideas to solve some of the minor issues. I feel so confident in his expertise; I referred him a friend and he also was wonderful to her! I can’t thank you enough Stephen! Another very successful almost stress free move thanks to you!"

He knows his stuff, and is there for you for any questions and concerns you may have. He really goes above and beyond to ensure that his clients are happy!"

"Working with Stephen was reassuring. We knew he understood what we were looking for in terms of our purchase and respected our choices and price range. He was very knowledgable regarding the community, the house itself and the renter/buyer's market. He quickly found us a renter as promised and took care of all the details and documents. We were guided by his expertise and trusted him to the point that we found this to be an easy-going transaction. Stephen guided us every step of the way and ensured every detail was taken care of. We certainly will be recommending him to friends and family and we will not hesitate to work with him again. Thank you, Stephen, for making this transaction a smooth and easy ride!"

Susie and Robert Baron (Buyer)

  • "Stephen is an amazing realtor. He is friendly, knowledgeable and honest. He pays attention to your interests and that shows in the selection of houses he chooses for you to view. He also knows Ottawa like the back of his hand and is able to tell you the plus and minuses of an area."

  • John - Orleans (Buyer)

"Stephen George's best quality in my opinion is that he was respectful of our needs and wants. He listened to us and even though he knew we could purchase a much more expensive property, he didn't try to steer us towards higher priced homes. We bought at a time where there were few properties on the market and we had to act fast. Stephen was very flexible, accommodating our last minute requests for showings and making himself available when it was convenient for us. He also negotiated well for the sale of my property and I was very happy with the outcome of the sale. I recommend Stephen George whenever someone mentions they're looking to buy and/or sell !"

No complaints he was always accessable when needed at anytime

Thanks for the great service that you have provided me"

Michel HERMIER (Buyer)

"From previous business dealings, Stephen George always honed his skills to become an effective leader in his profession.

His advice to effectively sell our house was very successful for us as the selling price was above our asking price and over the average in the neighbourhood. 
Stephen kept in touch letting us know what was happening in the local market and always alleviated our concerns. As well he was always available by phone anytime we called.

The office personnel's performance certainly supported the organization and Stephen's commitment to his clients.

A True real estate professional and compassionate man!"

"I have known Mr.Stephen George for years and I have many friends who have used his services in the past and I myself have referred others to him based on personal dealings and positive feedback from others. Stephen really cares for his clients and always goes above and beyond to ensure the needs of his clients are met. When I first moved from Denver CO, Stephen met me at the airport with car seats for my two kids so I did not have to go through the haste of checking extra baggage.When it came to selling my current home that Stephen helped me buy in 2011, there was no hesitation in who I was going to choose to be my agent. Additionally when I chose to build a new home, I chose Stephen to represent me as we navigated the complex waters of going through the process. Immediately I felt more at ease and armed with the required knowledge to get from commission of build to getting ready to move.Even when I was experiencing difficulties with my build, Stephen was always close by to provide direction and valuable advice. Regardless of time of day, Stephen was quick to answer my texts, e-mails and phone calls while providing exceptional guidance and advice regardless of the situation. Stephen introduced me to his extensive network within the Ottawa community who can assisted with everything from Mortgage advice/applications, home repairs and upgrades at a professional and reasonable price. He is not only concerned the the sale or purchase of your home, he cares enough to point you in the direction on how to solve you other housing needs/wants. A total professional, I would recommend Mr. George time and again if someone is looking for an agent who is always willing to go the extra mile.

Thanks Stephen, especially for putting in the extra work despite having a very busy family life of your Own.

"Met Steve by chance in a sports environment. Realized that he was a great guy, great family, that he was truly interested in the best interest of his clients. Have since recommended Steve to both my boys and parents who utilized Steve in their real estate transactions. Steve gives fantastic advise and works tirelessly for his clients. Steve honestly does what his best for his clients. I recommend Steve to all my friends when I learn they are in the real estate market.

It ended up being a complicated sale for reasons unrelated to Steve. He did a fantastic job working through the issues for us to get a positive result."

 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.

 

Buying

 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.

 

Selling

 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!
 
Best Regards,
Peter and Melissa

 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!

Hi 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!

Take care,

Kamran and Shermeena

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. 

Sincerely,

 

Krista and Aaron 

Stephen George
