Your Referrals mean the World to Me!
Thank you for doing business with The Tulip Team.
I really appreciate all your business and the referrals of your family, friends and associates. I am pleased I was able to help you with your real estate needs and will treat every referral you give me with the highest level of service.
How did we get buy the perfect home during a pandemic, through crazy bidding wars, and as first-time home buyer? I have no idea... but Reed Allen and Tim Connolly do! Through the whole process, Reed knew exactly what to do, when to do it, and had an answer to every questions we had. He has great connections for other services (like home inspectors) and made arrangements for them seem easy. Very patient, efficient, and definitely a vocal advocate for his clients (i.e. a group of buyers were trying to squeeze into our viewing time slot, when they were told to bite the dust in the most professional and polite way I've ever heard). I would definitely recommend the Tulip Team!

We can truly say that Kayla made the entire process as easy as it could have been. She was fantastic from day one to way past our closing day. She genuinely made us feel that she had our best interests and was keen on developing a connection to help us better understand what we were looking for. As first time buyers, we did not make the search easy but she was so great that we never felt pressured to make an offer on a place we visited nor did she make us feel we had to make ridiculously high offers. She is very knowledgeable and advised us on trends in the neighborhoods and guided us realistically within our price point. We highly recommend Kayla, she helped us find a great first home!

Ryan is an absolutely incredible agent with so much knowledge. He helped with the purchase of our new home and the sale of our current home. He was so patient throughout the entire buying process and stuck with us through many showings until we found the exact right home for us. He knew what it would take to make our dreams a reality and did just that, within our budget. He also sold our house through a very busy time for us and made it all very simple. He was in communication with us through the entire weekend and in the end, sold our house for a great price! He’s quick to reply, always quick with answers to any questions and was very helpful with neighbourhood knowledge. We can’t speak highly enough of Ryan. If you’re looking for an agent with good values and morals, high knowledge of real estate and someone who always has your best interest at heart, Ryan is your guy.

Kayla was very helpful in finding a place for me. She never pushed me to make a decision on a property or a price, and I am grateful for that. With Kayla I found what I was looking for, I found my home!
By: Hamideh Raissadat
Saiedeh was one of the most kind, helpful and reliable person I’ve ever seen. Without her help we couldn’t find our beautiful house. I highly recommended her to anyone looking for perfect realtor and friend ?? Wish her the best
We were directed to our agent Alex Wickham by a friend and are so pleased with the results, as we had a wonderful experience buying our first home through Alex, along with the entire Tulip team. During our initial meeting, Alex got to know us and the list of essentials we wanted in a home. Alex used terms that were easy for us to comprehend and made sure all our questions were answered. He was prompt and available, day and evening, throughout our entire search, as well as the buying process. He made sure all the properties we wanted to bid on were placed on time and were competitive, which was very important as the market was moving quickly. Alex was very knowledgeable about each neighbourhood we visited and was always on time for our meetings When showing us various properties, Alex pointed out highlights of each place and things to look out for. Alex had great connections and rapport with professionals we needed during our buying process, such as a mortgage broker and lawyer. Thank you for finding us our first home Alex! We would be delighted to work with Alex again in the future.

Kayla is a real estate professional with excellent communication and people skills. Buying a condo (my first!) in the pressured April real estate tsunami was not something I anticipated doing. Kayla listened to my specific needs and wishes regarding location and type of dwelling, mapped out areas and sent listings, promptly set up a few viewings which helped me to better refine what I wanted. When I had to return home to Vancouver, a condo came up which seemed to fill all my wishes, so I viewed it following her IPhone. We promptly put in an offer and she guided me through this especially nerve-wracking process from another city and three time zones away, while she gave me the factual details of the process and encouraged me to listen to my own intuition. I was successful and I’m in the process of moving in. She was able to refer me to an excellent painting team and is a source should I need other tradesmen for refinements. Her natural easy-going communication style, energy, and confidence along with her knowledge and professionalism makes her a real estate agent I would not hesitate to recommend.
By: Diana Mroue
Keith was a pleasure to deal with from the initial meeting to the closing of the sale. Always available to answer our questions, obtain information and provide advise backed with statistics and from past experience. We really felt he made the whole experience of selling our rental property as sound as possible and we were so grateful for that. Strongly recommend him and his team!
By: Sarah Parker
Kayla is a fantastic real estate professional. She was super responsive from day 1 and a great communicator. She was very flexible in meeting our needs and specific timelines as well as understanding when things had to shift due to our new baby! The marketing was professional, efficient, and required very little work on our part :) At the end of the day, she negotiated a far higher price for our sale than we expected.
By: Kate D
Alex was very helpful and always available - he was good at getting details on the area / unit and gave good advice. He had lots of thoughtful little touches that really made the experience great. Would recommend to others!
By: Mohammad Zein Aghaji
Saeideh is one of the most helpful and reliable person I've worked with. She helped me a lot from the beginning of the process. I am so happy to work with her and highly recommend her service.
By: Krista Broeckx
As first time home-buyers, my partner and I really had no idea what we were getting into with such a tumultuous real estate market. Kayla helped guide us through it by answering all of our questions and sharing resources that helped us to understand the process. She was an exceptional communicator- easy to get ahold of, and was always able to get showing set up in a timely manner. She is professional, kind, and extremely knowledgable. Kayla helped us find a home that hit all of our must-haves within 3 months. With her guidance, we successfully purchased the first house that we bid on- a true feat in this market! We absolutely loved working with her and will definitely do so again in the future.
By: Richard Parfett
Ryan was very easy to work with a very forthcoming with the information I requested as the process of selling the property moved along. Overall, a very satisfactory experience, and I would recommend him and the entire Tulip team.
By: Liam Farrell
We can't speak highly enough of our experience with Reed Allen!! We found our first house with Reed during the peak of the housing price boom of the global pandemic here in Ottawa! Without Reed, we would not have been able to do as well as we did!! Reed has a fantastic down to earth sense of humor which made the house hunting process so much fun for us. I HIGHLY recommend Reed if you are looking to buy or sell!
By: T A
Ryan is an amazing real estate agent to have by your side when going through the process of buying/selling a house. He was readily available every time I required his assistance and worked very quickly and efficiently. The entire process felt very smooth as Ryan was a step ahead the entire time, making sure that nothing was overlooked. Ryan definitely went above and beyond to ensure that every question I had was answered and every concern was addressed. With his help, I was able to wrap up the entire process of purchasing a new home in 7 days. Thank you, Ryan!
By: Berta Prelaz
Reed was GREAT. When we decided to list our condo oud daughter recommended Reed as she and her friends (all buying first houses) used him and raved about how hard he worked on their behalf. Immediately after agreeing to list our property he and his team took professional pictures and then did staging pictures. We laughed that we wanted to move back in they were so good. As we live 8 hours away we were able to do everything by e-mail and electronically. Reed kept us up to speed on showings and on offers. The condo sold quickly and we feel that it was because we had Reed as our agent. Would use him again for any real estate dealings we consider.
Some context: We were first time home buyers in a new city and in an incredibly difficult market. Kayla was able to give us great advice on the best neighborhoods for our needs and clearly recommend a property when it was a great find! At the same time, she was respectful of our decisions and supported us in every way she could by giving us advice at every step. She also recommended brokers and lawyers that made the whole process very simple. Overall, we managed to find a home in a month's time, when we had been expecting to be looking for months. I am wowed by her service and her friendliness. I cannot recommend her more
By: Heather Kirk
Truth be told, my husband used to be a real estate agent so we actually weren't planning on using an agent to help us buy a property in Ottawa. We ended up changing our mind after seeing how hot the Ottawa market was getting and realizing how difficult it would be to handle on our own all the way from Toronto. Looking back, thank goodness we did because reaching out to Ryan was definitely the best decision we could have made! We are so thankful that we found Ryan because he helped to make what could have easily been a nightmare into the best experience you could possibly ask for. My husband and I were moving to Ottawa from Toronto so we definitely relied on Ryan for his opinion and guidance since we weren't able to view most of the properties in person ourselves. Buying a new home sight unseen might sound like a crazy thing to do when you're spending hundreds of thousands of dollars, but we found Ryan to be extremely knowledgeable with a good head on his shoulders so we absolutely trusted his feedback when he visited properties on our behalf. Although we encountered a few bumps in the road during our search - lots of rejected offers or getting outbid - Ryan was always so upbeat and positive which helped us to keep moving forward without getting too discouraged by the market conditions. Ryan was constantly in touch with us, giving us his opinions on our always-adapting strategies and, when it came time to make a move, Ryan always had everything prepared and ready to go for us. In a single word, Ryan is exceptional. We were so impressed with the job he did that we wished he were licensed in Quebec as well so that we could use him again to buy another property in Gatineau! He has definitely set the bar very high and the next agent we work with will have some very big shoes to fill! Thank you so much Ryan for everything you did to help us!
By: Scott Lecy
As out of town buyers we relied heavily on Reed's service and real estate knowledge. During the process he provided updates of properties within the area and our price range. Reed visited the properties, took video's and gave honest assessments as to the suitability of the properties. In the end we wound up with the perfect unit for our son. We highly recommend Reed Allen based on our experience with him and would definitely utilize him again.
By: Brittany Gordon
Our experience with Kayla Meyer was an absolute pleasure. Her professionalism, knowledge and support was amazing. We had never sold and purchased a home at the same time before and we couldn’t be more happy to have had Kayla to help guide us through all of it, especially in the current market.
By: Kevin N
From start to finish Alex was quick to answer questions, give updates, and relay messages from other agents. We had a tenant as well and he handled the communication with her which made our lives easier. Overall I would recommend Alex and the tulip team to anyone looking to sell their property.
By: Jayda S
We recently bought and sold a house with The Tulip Team. Keith and Ryan were very patient with us. We looked at many houses (over 6 months) before we found the house that ticked all the boxes. They were very prompt in answering all our questions and providing us with all the information we needed to feel comfortable making a competitive offer. Ryan provided just the right amount guidance, when prompted, to inform our offer strategy. During the selling process Keith was in constant communication with us. The support of the Tulip Team during the listing and showing of the house was outstanding. Audrey was available at all hours to assist with the flurry of bookings. On offer day, many Tulip Team members made themselves available to help sort through the 17 offers we received on our house.
By: Trevor Thomas
Bill was very professional and able to meet me at a moments notice to purchase and scoop a house. Very happy with his services.
By: Carole B
I absolutely appreciated the professionalism, advice, and honesty throughout the entire process and the candid and truthful conversations particularly when the offers arrived. You explained every detail and the pros and cons of each offer presented which helped us and allowed us to make the appropriate decision.
By: Busy Bee
Bill handled our "family drama", for lack of a better word, with patience and professionalism. We didn't make it easy, with multiple people needing to sign documents in several very different time zones. I would hire him again in a heart beat.
By: Amir Sabri
Saeideh changed my whole perspective about realtors! I was looking for an investment property to buy. Saeideh defined a realistic strategy based on my plan and budget and patiently walked me through. She generously introduced me to relevant people who had similar experience to get a clear picture. I had bad experience with realtors in the past that has changes thanks to Saeideh.
By: Anthony W.
We were looking for an investment property. Kayla helped us consider and evaluate a number of different options (condos, single family homes, multi dwelling units, urban vs. rural) and listened to what we were looking for. Her market knowledge and experience also helped identify additional things to consider as we went through the process. She was always prepared for our meetings and patient with us when were not as prepared. Very happy with the end result!
By: Jocelyn B
I had a fantastic experience working with Owen Kennedy and his team on both the sale of my house and the purchase of my new home. Owen is extremely knowledgeable in the Ottawa area and market. I was looking to purchase a home on the outskirts of Ottawa, somewhere where I can work remotely but still have the atmosphere of a town. Owen knows the pros and cons of every area and was always prepared at each showing with research. He is always able to give great advice and you can count on him to give you an honest opinion. He made the home buying experience fun (which is difficult in this market)! I was able to find my dream home with-in a few weeks of looking and I truly believe that the 'offer accepted call' had a lot to do with Owen's communication with the selling agent. I most definitely recommend using Owen in the Tulip team to anyone looking for a positive buying or selling experience.
By: J. Sadocha
Ryan did an outstanding job meeting our needs for finding, buying, listing, and successfully selling our home. When looking at prospective homes, Ryan gave us a great perspective of the market and set out realistic expectations on how to approach offers. With his strategy, we were able to find and close on a house within the first month of our search in the midst of busiest and most competitive housing market Ottawa has ever seen! When my wife and I went to sell our home, we were pretty nervous as we had a pretty unique property. Once again, Ryan was able to find comparables in the area, give us a proper market outlook, and created a masterful plan. The whole process was SEAMLESS and you couldn't ask for anything better (especially for a family with two kids under two). In the end, we got way over asking in less than a week. I would recommend Ryan to anyone looking for their first house, forever home, investment property, cottage, or anything else. He doesn't just meet expectations, he exceeds them. I've worked with numerous agents in my line of work but none that I trust as much as Ryan.
By: Norris Ali
I was referred to Keith, and I am so glad I was. He was extremely responsive and very pro-active on communicating with us. He was very knowledgeable and honest with his opinions about all the homes we viewed. We highly recommend Keith.
By: Nicholas Crouch
Sylvie represented the seller on a transaction where I represented the buyer. She was extremely helpful in answering any questions that I or my buyers had and was also very quick to keep everyone informed of what was going on with offers. Looking forward to our next deal together!
By: Fiona Hills
Bill Meyer was instrumental in selling my rental townhouse property located within Glabar Park in the west-end of Ottawa. Bill lives not far away and his knowledge of the joy and convenience of living in this area was highly noted within the listing. Although my property was certainly a "diamond in the rough", Bill's strategy to test the waters by selling it as-is or doing a reno and then listing turned out to be excellent advice. As we were heading into the Fall and with supply change issues on renovations items being a possibility, we sold as-is for over asking in a multiple offer situation. The real estate market is always changing, and I certainly appreciated Bill for his experience and key understanding of what can be a difficult market to read. Both Bill and his team are highly organized and responsive. This was literally one of the easiest transactional experiences of my life. Thanks, Bill, for the great service!
By: Rebecca MacLeod
Buying a house with Tim was a great experience. I could not have had a better agent to guide me through buying my first home. He helped me set realistic expectations and listened to my wants/needs and concerns. Tim was available and worked with my schedule. He also made sure to answer all my questions quickly and reassure me through all steps of the process.
By: Ian Leslie
Sylvie was a pleasure to work with. She knew our area very well, and her advice was very helpful. Her arrangement for staging and her presentation and photos of our property was great and resulted in many showings. She kept us informed up to date re showings etc. Her efforts resulted in our property selling in a week for over listing price.
By: Dave B
Thank you Ryan Brown for all your help. You were able to explain everything to me You were able to keep me level headed throughout the process from day 1. I highly recommend Ryan Brown's services for buying your home . Ryan did a fantastic job in a very professional manner. I will be referring him to friends and co workers
By: Nick & Natalie
We first met Alex when he found us a home to rent. Years later we followed up with him to buy our first home because of how well our experience was the first time. It was just as we expected, Alex guided us through the whole process with no issues. We would recommended Alex to anyone, and will be using him in the future!
By: Andrew Mullin
Tim has helped me thought one of the biggest decisions of my life the purchase of our first home. I will be forever grateful to have had someone guide me thought this experience with the care and compassion he has exemplified. Tim had kept constant tab on me, giving advice and potential homes that at first glance I would have skimmed over helping broaden my perspective during the home search discovering what is truly important to us. His knowledge of the areas I was looking at and narrowing down our results gave me guidance in what seemed like overwhelming amount of choices. I will be sure to use Tim and would recommend him to anyone who would want a personable experience who acts with honesty and respect.
By: Alex Martin
Flexible, no pressure to buy. He'll show you as many houses as you want to see until you find the right one. Doesn't know the answer to one of your questions? He'll be honest about it and will find out the answer for you.
By: Mohamed Zourob
Alex is the man. I had a great experience working with him on multiple occasions, from buying residential and investment properties to advertising and finding tenants. Very professional, experienced and always available to help. I highly recommend him.
By: Lili Miveh
I worked with Kayla recently and the experience couldn’t be better! She was professional, quick to respond, and addressed all my questions and concerns. Kayla is always professional, responsive and honest. She is an amazing agent. Highly recommended!
By: Alex Hein
Alex was responsive and helpful to our unique needs and situation. We required our agent to engage in a negotiation with the seller over Easter weekend and we came out with an excellent deal.
By: Dino Quinlan
Reed was a great choice for a real estate agent. He was very patient with us being it was our first home purchase. Communication was great and he took the time to explain each step of the process. I would highly recommend Reed for any or all your real estate needs.
By: James Salehi
Kayla was super nice and awesome! Was really helpful & knowledgeable as it was my first time buying a home and understood and respected mine and my partners stresses! We were super active lookers and she always accommodated us which was awesome and even gave us some helpful tips when we moved in. Also was very good at the negotiation process! Great realtor if you’re looking for someone nice, relatable and knowledgeable!
By: Rick & Treena
We knew Alex was a great musician and, as it turns out, he is a great realtor also! He and the whole Tulip Team were a pleasure to work with from initial consultation to the end. Alex's marketing strategy worked perfectly, the staging advice was excellent and the photos & video really showed off our house. Many thanks, Alex and team.
By: James Buell
Kayla was an awesome real-estate agent. Highly professional, she is extremely knowledgeable and very easy to work with. Her virtual tour video was particularly impressive and undoubtedly brought potential buyers to our condo. Our condo sold in one day at well over asking price. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
By: Michelle Foy
If you told me that we would buy our forever home via videos and facetime last year, I would have told you you were crazy. But travelling 5 hours there and back to see houses in a pandemic just wasn't realistic. So, we did it, and couldn't done it without Reed. He was exceptional at getting to know our family and our needs. He took detailed videos to clearly highlight the pros / cons of each house He provided great advice, timely communication and immediately gained our trust We made the trip to see our home this weekend, and there were no surprises - just lots of smiles and excitement - Reed you are truly amazing, thank you for making our dreams come true!
By: Ioana Dim
Excellent service once again! I appreciate the prompt and highly professional service provided by Alex and The Tulip Team. A very responsive, dedicated and hard-working agent who goes the extra mile to guarantee customer satisfaction. Well informed and always able to find solutions. Communicates clearly and sets realistic goals. I highly recommend Alex.
By: Narges Gheisari
She is so patient, supportive, professional, reliable and honest. We really enjoyed working with her as she knows what she is doing. The most stressful thing in every one's life is to buy a house, so the role of agent is significant, Saeideh is the one who can help you to make a right decision. Saeideh we get to live in our dream house!
By: Julia Holuj
Alex was really great to work with for buying my first home. He was very knowledgeable and helpful with the buying process and was always available to answer my questions. It definitely made the process so much easier and less stressful and I can't thank him enough for that! I would not hesitate to work with him again.
By: Bibi Ebel
Reed is an exceptional agent. He goes above and beyond for every client. We bought our house with his help being out of Canada and our hopes were not high. But Reed made it possible. He found time to respond to every email we sent and provided us with great advice based on knowledge and experience. Our family is very grateful to Reed for all the support and help, his professionalism and accuracy. We would recommend Reed without hesitation. If you are looking for a great agent, Reed is the one. Thanks again!!
By: Lauren Giandomenico
We are so glad that we decided to work with Kayla in buying our first home. Kayla helped ease our first-time-homebuyer nerves by answering all of our questions. She kept our expectations in check by using market data to guide our offers, though she always encouraged us to view any house that we expressed interest in; if we liked a house, we should give it a shot. She happily took us to six homes for viewings, which helped us make an informed and decisive decision about offering when we fell onto the house that we loved. Kayla was available around the clock to support us through the home buying process, whether it was via email or at last-minute showings. In fact, Kayla's swiftness on booking showings for us is probably the only reason we ended up with the house that we did. Her quickness in booking showings , organizing/submitting the paperwork, setting us up with a great mortgage broker, and in facilitating all the behind-the-scenes work that goes into purchasing a property, are the reasons why we secured a home within this piping hot seller's market. We owe it entirely to Kayla for securing this property for us and for helping us avoid a price war as best as possible. We never felt pressured by a multiple offer scenario because we trusted Kayla's assessment of the market and of property values. Kayla never pressured us to offer above what we were comfortable with, and always laid out her best estimates on what a strong, fair, reasonable, and ultimately successful offer would be. In our time working with Kayla, she was right about every single offer she suggested for the properties we viewed. Her strategy throughout the offer process is the reason why we didn't overpay for our home, but still walked away with the home we loved. We feel incredibly lucky to have had access to Kayla's guidance and expertise.

Saeideh is an incredible person with beautiful personality; patient, kind, friendly. She is passionate about her job and is reliable to work with. My husband and I both were very concerned about the housing market and in general about going through this stressful process of selling and buying a new house. However, having Saeideh as our agent helped us a lot because of her knowledge and skills. She patiently showed us so many different houses in so many different areas all over Ottawa and more importantly, prior to each single showing, she looked up all the details about not only the houses, but about the neighborhoods as well. We appreciate Saeideh's honesty and hardworking. Many new house. However, having Saeideh as our agent helped us a lot because of her knowledge and skills.

I cannot say enough great things about Ryan. Very professional approach to the type of home and area I was looking for as well giving me his insight into what his perspective was in the market. Always prepared when he showed up and when was sharing my concerns on every property for potential re-sale in the future. When I found my dream home the stat's showed this was way over my budget however with someone else putting in a bully offer Ryan suggested to try and I WON! Great advice from one of the best.
By: Andrea & André
Alex gave us good guidance by reviewing options and strategies before listing our home. He wanted us to be completely comfortable with our choice. Once that was made, he moved into action with a complete scheduled timeline of steps and actions for the whole Tulip Team to work on for our preferred closing date. Alex is a very professional and knowledgeable agent. We found him to be very positive, calm and a very good communicator. Alex answered any calls and questions we had immediately and resolved all issues that came up in a timely manner. We would not hesitate to recommend Alex Wickham to assist you in selling your Wicked Home. He knows the market and has a great team behind him in the Tulip Team at RE/MAX Hallmark Realty Group.
By: Lisanne B
Sylvie was fast and effective in her sale of my condo. She is very organized and had done her research prior to our initial meeting. She met with me to discuss comparables, her assessment of my condo unit and her work plan for the sale. If you have a tenant, she will meet with them to go over the logistics. My condo sold for over asking and I would definitely use her services again to sell a property.
By: Nina Yunusova
It has been a pleasure to work with Kayla. She found a best house for me with right price, great neighborhood and quick closure date - All I asked for. Upon closure i got comprehensive instructions about moving which was really helpful as i didn't know much about hydro, water etc. She was very supportive and available any time for me even on weekends and picking my calls late evening. I highly recommend Kayla and would buy/sell with her again in future.
By: Khadija & Stephane
Keith has helped us purchase and sell three different properties over the past eight years. He has always been 'cool, calm, and collected' during the searching, buying, and selling process. His knowledge of the housing market in Ottawa is fantastic and his professionalism is top notch. We will continue to use Keith for all of our real estate needs as well as refer him, and his team, over and over again.
By: Queenie N
Reed is a fantastic agent that helped me sell my condo and buy a home. I contacted Reed as many of my friends and colleagues have had great experiences with him. Reed took the time to visit numerous houses with me (even on short notice) to understand my likes and dislikes and he would also point out details in the houses that I would have missed. After the purchase of my new home, Reed worked with his team to quickly put up the listing for my condo. Reed was optimistic, knowledgeable about the current market and was able to negotiate very effectively to get a good price, in both buying and selling. Whether it was through text or call, Reed would get back to me very quickly and keep me up to speed in the negotiation process. I would highly recommend working with Reed and hope to work with him again in the future.
By: Mreza Aziziyan
Buying a house could be very frustrating and stressful process, but, thanks to Saeideh, we had an incredible experience for buying our new home. She has a super nice personality that will capture during the first interaction, and she carries an extraordinary experience and invaluable knowledge about the Ottawa market! She patiently walked us through the process, which will seem super complicated, especially for first-home buyers, and she was very flexible during the entire process. All in all, we could not wish for a better realtor, and because of Saeideh we get to live in our dream house!
By: Ahmed Kashef
Ryan has been very informative and responsive throughout the process. He provided valuable advices to best understand the market trends, pricing strategies and enable success showings. I would use his services again and would definitely recommend to others.
By: Matthew Gayford
Alex was exactly what my wife Melissa and I wanted in an agent when we were looking for our first house. His knowledge of the different neighbourhoods we looked at, the Ottawa housing market, and issues to watch for in houses was extremely helpful. Additionally, he was very responsive to all of our inquiries, quickly identified houses that would interest us and passed them on to us, and was friendly, professional, and thoughtful in all of our interactions. Alex was available when we needed him and seemed to always be on the move helping his clients. He ended up helping us to secure an amazing home in a great neighbourhood for significantly less than we had expected. If we are ever buying or selling in Ottawa again, we would not hesitate to work with him.
By: James Guest
Sylvie did an excellent job. As Winchester is outside here normal area, she spent the extra time getting to know the area to better advise me, and together I think we did an outstanding job. She was very good at explaining everything up front, preparing me for future decisions and providing the absolute best support during the whole process. I have used her expertise before and I am very glad I decided to trust her again.
By: Bartosz Nowak
Kayla was super supportive, and her understanding of current market trends were invaluable to us. Most impressive were here instincts and judgement in determining values during a very chaotic market season. We had tremendous success listing and selling our home (in 2 days) and finding our forever home with Kayla, without whose sincerity and advice along the way this would not have been possible.
By: Adnan Khatib
Our experience with Keith was great. He is a professional and hard-working agent. We highly recommend him for purchase of property in Ottawa or in the suburbs. His advice was good and he was honest when he dealt with us.
By: Royden Moran
As estate trustees, my sister and I were in charge with the sale of my mom's home. My sister had a worked with Reed previously. I interviewed two top performing agents...What differentiated Reed was his knowledge of probate requirements. Reed is a very good communicator. He was available to consult with us throughout the process and provided detailed answers to our questions. As we prepared to go to market, Reed was very precise in laying out our options. During the sale period, Reed skillfully negotiated a preemptive offer, and the eight offers we received on closing day for a grand slam sale price. We chose the right agent to represent us. No regrets. Thanks Reed
By: Behnaz Alimardani
Saeideh is a very smart and knowledgeable real estate agent you can work with. She passionately helped us find a place where we shall soon call home. This was our first home purchase experience and all thanks to Saeideh who made it very easy for us and lead us from day one. She has been with us from the first day we started looking for a house and we are very very grateful for her.
By: Donalee Anderson
If you need an agent to help you sell your house or condo, Reed Allen is your man! He is a very thorough and professional, but personable, agent who gets the job done fast. Reed and the Tulip Team even went the extra mile and found an electrician for me to handle a last-minute detail that was overlooked. Reed kept me informed prior to listing my apartment and during negotiations of the sale and was always available to respond to a message or phone call no matter the time of day or evening. My condo listing went live on a Friday morning and by Sunday, my place had been sold for more than the asking. No glitches or problems whatsoever. So happy I chose to list with Reed Allen and the Tulip Team, and I thoroughly recommend his services whether you are looking to sell or buy. Thanks Reed!

Kayla is one of the best realtors in Ottawa. She is helpful and always ready to listen. She worked hard to find me a home. I recommend Kayla to everyone looking for serious realtors.

Alex was an outstanding real estate agent he was very professional and helped us navigate buying our first home in a very difficult market. He made the process a lot less stressful for us by doing a great job of helping us identify the correct prices for various properties and managed to find us an excellent deal on a house before it even went to market! Would definitely recommend working with Alex.
By: Zora Hirbodvash
It's hard to put into words how excellent Saeideh is. Saeideh went above and beyond to ensure we can find a home that suited our needs. She is always available, professional, honest and upfront. Saeideh continued to help us even after our deal was done. I couldn't have asked for a better realtor to take us through the process.

Dès le premier contact avec Keith, nous avons apprécié son écoute active et surtout sa connaissance du marché à Ottawa. Bien entendu, le tout s'est déroulé en français. Keith a pris le temps de fixer une rencontre virtuelle afin de nous connaitre et de cibler nos besoins. Il a toujours été disponible pour répondre à nos questions de dernière minute et à tout moment de la journée et ce, même la fin de semaine. Son écoute et son dévouement pour nous aider à trouver LA maison idéale pour notre famille est sans doute ce qui fait de lui un « excellent agent » pour vous aider à trouver VOTRE maison.

We had a great experience buying our home with Tim. He was always available and would get back to us promptly with any questions we might have about the properties we viewed. Tim worked with us to find a home in our price range and made us feel very comfortable through the home buying experience. Despite the challenges of a very competitive market Tim helped us find a lovely townhome that backs onto a park that our family is very excited to move into shortly.

I would highly recommend Alex as a realtor, he's very knowledgeable and made the process of buying our first home much less stressful than it could have otherwise been! Alex was also a very friendly guy, very approachable which made a world of difference. Alex was also really great about working to get us a good bargain, with his help we were able to see and buy our home before it even hit the market.

We contacted Sylvie Begin when we wanted to sell our condo. Sylvie came and did a thorough inspection of the place and brought some comparable to show us. She suggested a price (which we found to be very high) and were not really comfortable with this price. But, in the end, we thought: she is the pro, not us! So,it was put for sale at this price and needless to say that we were crazy happy when, 8 days later, we received an offer at 10%+ over our asking price!!!!! Thank you soooooo very much Sylvie! You really know your business and the market! We mostly appreciated your words to calm us down when stress was getting the best of us. You can be sure that we will think about you every time someone we know is looking for a real estate agent! If we'd have to express our experience with you with only one word: Remarkable!!!! Merci!
By: Mahdi Parvizi
Keith is very nice and helpful. We used his services to buy a new house. He is aware of market trends and also knowledgeable about home improvement costs.
By: Kyle Stepa
My wife and I went into the home buying process with very little knowledge. Reed guided us through every step and was a wealth of knowledge about what to look for when choosing a home. He wasn't pushy and he explained things clearly so that we could make an informed decision. We would definitely recommend him to others to help them with their real estate needs.
By: Amber Lawlor
Kayla helped us with both buying and selling, and it was smooth sailing on both counts. Kayla took the time and care to help us prepare our home and did an amazing job marketing it. Even with a crazy and frustrating market she was not only patient and supportive but we really felt she had our best interest in mind while we were trying to and successfully bought new homes. We really appreciated her quick communication and guidance as we were new to the process. We highly recommend her!
By: Reuben Nashali
Saeideh Shabani is a 10-star Real Estate Agent in Ottawa. She understands the Ottawa market and she is an excellent price negotiator. She helped my girlfriend and I buy our first home in a great neighbourhood, at an excellent price and we are very happy and grateful for her hard work. She worked with us with immaculate professionalism.
By: Charlene Laporte
We first met Sylvie back in 2017 when we were deciding whether to rent or sell our Quinterra home. Out of the 3 agents we interviewed, Sylvie’s experience and knowedge clearly demonstrated to us why she is the “Queen of Quinterra”. The other agents didn’t have an appreciation for our neighbourhood and how unique our house was. Even though we decided to rent our home in 2017, Sylvie stayed in touch until we decided to sell in late 2020. We were concerned about selling during a pandemic, and had no idea what to list our house for. Sylvie handled everything. She explained the extensive Covid protocols required, and knew exactly wha t to list our house for based recent house sales in Quinterra and the current seller’s market. We received feedback that the price was too high from some other agents, but Sylvie stood by her research and our house ended up selling in a bidding war well over the asking price. We were also very impressed with marketing materials and extremely high quality photos and video tour. The entire team supporting Sylvie was very professional and prompt. We highly recommend Sylvie and the Tulip Team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Ottawa!
By: Chris and Josée
We have sold our house and purchased 2 others homes for our family in the last 3 years and Keith has surpassed all of our expectations. He is professional, available, bilingual and most importantly he communicates very well. We were informed of all the details and he was letting us know what we could expect. His advise was based on prior experiences and very useful but were never to influence us into something we weren't comfortable with. He worked relentlessly for us and with us. It is a pleasure to deal with Keith and the Tulip team! You can't go wrong when you choose Keith Bray. He will go over and above for you.
By: Paige Marie
We had a wonderful experience with Ryan from The Tulip Team as our real estate agent. As first-time home buyers in a hot Ottawa market, we were very anxious and had lots of questions about the process. Ryan delivered an excellent starting presentation to familiarize us with the process and answered our questions right at the outset. When it came to looking at potential homes, Ryan was incredibly responsive and provided great information on neighbourhood comparables as well as how best to position ourselves to make a successful offer. His list of inspectors was high-quality and also great to deal with. We were able to find our dream home quickly and at the right price with Ryan's help, which was extremely impressive! We only have great things to say about Ryan's communication, attitude, and ability to find us a house we love. I'd highly recommend him as an agent in Ottawa's hot real estate market!

Sylvie Begin is an extraordinary professional. Beyond all expectations. We are very satisfied. She is always smiling, available, interested and always looking for the best for her clients. We strongly recommend her services.
By: Sonia Gasparini
We have worked with Alex to purchase properties and also as our selling agent. Alex is knowledgeable, listened to our needs and was professional and had our best interest in mind. I highly recommend Alex.
By: Sandra Valeri
Excellent, Sylvie has been my agent before in renting the unit. She is very professional and goes out of her way to please her client to achieve the selling or buying of properties.
By: Neil Sauve
I initially contacted Kayla to inquire about renting my condo and Kayla suggested that it is actually a great time to sell. She walked me through why it was a great time to sell as well as the listing process. It didn't take too much convincing for me to list the condo. The listing process was transparent and effortless. Less than a week on the market Kayla brought me an offer well over asking with a quick close and zero conditions. The overall experience and outcome could not have been any better! I look forward to working with Kayla again!
By: Michelle A
I just wanted to reach out to you personally and say thank you for the great care you are taking of my parents. They aren’t always the most trusting but they are so happy with how honest you are with them and that you focus on the details they may overlook. It makes me feel so much better knowing they have an agent that cares about where they end up, so thank you.
By: Nicholas Coleman
My homebuying experience with Kayla was excellent. She was very responsive a great communicator. She had a ton of knowledge with the neighborhoods that I was considering and provided lots of insight. Kayla helped me navigate the process and provided excellent advice on how to best position myself to get the property I wanted and did everything she could to reduce the stress of the situation. I would definitely recommend Kayla, and would not hesitate to look for Kayla's assistance if/when I need to go through it all again!
By: Igor Karapas
As we first arrived to Ottawa area, we were not aware about specifics of buying home. It is obviously different than in area we currently live. We were very fortunate to choose Reed as our agent. Reed was always responsive to our requests and every time we required his help. His recommendations were helpful and in the end - productive. We thank Reed for helping us with purchasing our home, and will recommend him in future.
By: Sarah Hurman
Sylvie is down to earth and practical. She knows the market. She is also very supportive and a great source of information to help with repairs, showings and moving.
By: Ann Smith
Mme. Begin was recommended to me and my family by friends who had benefited from her services as a Real Estate Agent. Her work with us amply justified their opinion. Mme Begin's professional approach combined with her patient, sympathetic appreciation of her client's advanced age and limitations made the process less stressful for me. Her practical advice regarding staging, repainting and overall presentation of my condominium, combined with her proven marketing expertise, resulted in a prompt and problem-free sale beyond my expectations. Mme. Begin showed a thorough knowledge of the area in which she was working on my home, which would be valuable to prospective buyers. Mme. Begin is credited with a most successful transaction and I fully endorse the recommendation which I myself received from my friends.
By: Ruth Berhane
Bill is the man of his word. Bill sold our home quick and with price more than expected. He is real, genius enough, trustworthy, dependable and very knowledgeable. Bill thank you! For everything you help us buying and selling. We look forward to the next adventure.
By: Shane Vanier
I have dealt with many real estate agents over the last 40 years, both in Toronto and here in Ottawa. Three agents in all this time have stuck out in my mind - two in Toronto and ONE in Ottawa. The one in Ottawa is Keith. So what is the best part of an agent you want to know... COMMUNICATION. Keith - unlike many others, handled my sale directly and was ALWAYS available. That is the biggest perk in my mind, having an agent that does not desert you to a team the minute you sign a contract. Keith is simply AMAZING for this. He stays in contact...PERSONAL ATTENTION, not just someone on the team. When will other agents learn this...You deal with an agent because you want THEIR service, not someone else on the team. Keith respects you, his client. He is fantastic at this and he is fantastic and letting you know answers to your questions - always the same day. It was a pleasure dealing with Keith and I am sure for anyone else that wants an agent that truly respects and communicates well with them, they should be dealing with Keith too.
By: Pam Andrella
Alex was great in keeping me updated and keeping in contact with me during the whole process. I couldn't have asked for more! He also was great in setting up viewings, especially during this difficult time.
By: Mary-Theresa Okoh
Keith helped me with the purchase and sale of my property in 2017 and 2020. Both times he was extremely professional and made the experience seamless. He provided me with updates every step of the way and was very transparent in his dealings.
By: Gaston Segakiga
Keith is professional, punctual, and always available to answer questions via emails, text message or phone call. During the visit, he is able to guide people, to answer to their questions, and he gives enough time so that clients can make their decisions.
By: Danielle M
Alex did an outstanding job representing us and selling our condo, he was attentive and responsive, knowledgeable, and consistently went above and beyond our expectations.
By: Elyse Gravel
Kayla was the perfect realtor to help my partner and me purchase our first home! As first time home buyers, we required someone who could take the time to thoroughly explain the process and answer all of our questions and Kayla surpassed our expectations! She was very reliable and communication was very prompt - she was always available when needed to chat. Kayla is so relatable and kind, it was truly a pleasure to work with her. Thank you Kayla!!
By: Jeffrey Platt
First time home buyer, and Owen made it comfortable and very secure. No pressure to put in bids or up bids and always felt very honest. Owen provided us with lots of options, walked us through different choices and pros and cons. Personal and friendly would definitely recommend!
By: Chelsea Young
We hired Alex to help us purchase our home. As relatively inexperienced buyers, Alex put us at ease right away. He prepared a PowerPoint presentation for our initial meeting where he walked us through an analysis of the market and what we could expect during the process. This level of preparation and client care was consistent throughout the entire process. Alex made himself readily available at all hours to answer questions and schedule viewings, often in the same day on evenings and weekends. He was incredibly prepared for each of these showings, always preparing a list of comparable properties and providing his analysis prior to th e showing. Each time, his analysis and predictions on what the homes would sell for were on target. During the showings, he provided helpful insight on the condition of the homes. Alex really listened to what we were looking for. We never felt overwhelmed or pressured in anyway. The experience he created never felt like he was trying to sell us a home, but more like we were searching for a home with a trusted advisor and friend. When we found a home that we wanted to put an offer on, he developed a strong strategy that was catered to the seller, and we were successful in securing the winning bid. Alex continued to help us through the purchase process, recommending a mortgage broker and providing next steps the entire way. I would highly recommend Alex to anyone looking to purchase or sell your home.
By: Deborah Nyman
Saeideh is amazing! She helped us with both the purchase and sale of our house. She was extremely professional. She worked tirelessly helping us find the perfect home. She answered every question, was available whenever we needed her, was knowledgeable and friendly. We were so impressed that when we suddenly were put in the position of needing to move out of the province, she was the first person we called. The sale of our home went just as smoothly. We would not hesitate to recommend Saeideh to anyone.
Alex is pro, fun, and knowledgeable. My purchase was handled with ease. He got me the place I wanted, at the right price, and facilitated the transaction quickly. After sale support was incredible. I highly recommend him!
Had many obstacles to overcome to have the home emptied due to Covid restrictions. Throughout the process, Keith was respectful and understanding. Once ready to list everything ran smoothly and was quickly sold. I would recommend Keith Bray if anyone is looking to sell. Thanks Keith!
By: Stephanie Griffin
I have used Bill as a realtor for the sale of my home (4 years ago) and the recent purchase of a condo townhome. Bill is an experienced, professional realtor with strong knowledge of the Ottawa housing market. It took me almost 1.5 years to find the right property to purchase. Bill was patient and encouraging throughout this time. I never felt pressured and he provided valuable insight into a few of the properties I was considering. I strongly recommend Bill as a realtor for those buying or selling.
By: Peter Bailey
Having read the previous reviews, there is very little I can add. Ryan is a pleasant, dedicated, thorough, accommodating, prompt and patient, knowledgeable professional. In fact I am unable to provide criticism. I believe I was very fortunate to become one of Ryan's clients. Thank you Ryan, for successfully negotiating a market value home purchase, for my partner and myself, during a soaring seller's market period.
By: Andrew Rudkevitch
Keith was very helpful helping us find an purchase our house in the neighbourhood we desired. His insight during the purchase offers help us secure the winning bid. He was always available at arranging viewing quickly even during the recent restrictions. His knowledge and professionalism is why we chose him as our agent and we are very satisfied with his work. We appreciate all the hard work Keith did to help us during the finding and purchase phases.
By: Karin Em
First and foremost thing that I like about you is that you are calm and patient. Moving, buying and selling is very stressful and somehow you exude calmness in your manner that makes the whole process much more pleasant. You always take the time to answer questions and answer back phone calls or e-mails in a timely manner. This is my second time around dealing with you so you know that I was happy with your services the first time. Your entire team is professional, reliable, on time, swift and pleasant to deal with. Thanks for a job well done and would definitely recommend you to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
By: Habib Johnson
Reed made our house hunting experience so easy! After we found the home we wanted, Reed set us up with an inspector, lawyers, mortgage broker and all other services we needed before our closing date. Reed was professional and efficient throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend Reed for anyone who plans to buy or sell their home. Thank you for everything Reed!
Keith is very knowledgeable, honest and accommodating. We got fast results from him as well as a detailed walkthrough of our options. We will be happy to work with him again in the future.
By: Maxime Dea
Merci pour tout et pour ton excellent service. Tu as vraiment livré! On ne va pas hésiter à te recommender à nos contacts et voisins.
By: Ian Rintoul
Since our search was during covid we didn't have daycare for our children and couldn't bring them into viewings with us. Keith graciously watched our kids outside while we viewed several homes, going far above and beyond what I would expect from any agent, and the kids loved him! He gave honest opinions on homes, even after we'd viewed more than 10, helping us to make an educated decision. Selling our home was fast and simple, the free staging service gave us great pointers on how to maximize the look of our home for a quick sale. The strategy of selling worked extremely well with more than 30 viewings before accepting offers and selling without 1.5 hours of opening to offers. I've already recommended Keith, Ryan and the team to others and would continue to recommend without reservation.
By: Andrea Diaz
I had the fortune to have met Reed in 2017 when he helped me find a home in Ottawa after one year of living in the city. In June 2020 my ex partner and I contacted Reed once again as we truly enjoyed working with him. This time Reed helped with both, selling my house and finding a new home. His advice from the very first conversation was outstanding. Reed made himself available right away to our convenience and he prepared a very detailed presentation about the status of the market, comparable houses and potential strategies to be used in the marketing process. He is remarkably knowledgeable and yet kind to hear all your concerns and respond to every single of your questions. Reed was also very thorough when providing direction and guidelines on how to proceed along the process. He guided us in the best direction in every single step and after using his suggested market strategy we got to sell our home for a completely unexpected price. We couldn't have obtained a better outcome and that was thanks to his vision and professionalism. Our house got sold in no time and $50K over the expected price. His negotiation skills were remarkable. Reed shows that he truly cares about his clients and makes sure he listens and addresses all of your concerns. His patience and positive attitude as well as his confidence in how to move along the process let you rest assured you will get what you want. This was also the case when he helped me find my new home within a very tight deadline and with plenty of criteria that I set up for my search. When I was stressing out or feeling frustrated because I couldn't find the place I truly wanted, he made me believe again in the process and assured me we would find my home just in time. And it happened! I'm asked Reed million questions and he was always there to respond in the most friendly, professional and timely way possible. I haven't met any other real estate agent to be able to see other traits, but after working with Reed in these three processes and seeing the exceptional process and results associated to working with him, I will continue without a doubt to happily rely on his advice in future opportunities. I will certainly recommend my friends/colleague to go with the best real estate advisor and great person they can get, and that's Reed!!.
By: Christine Seguin
As a first time home-buyer, Keith was able to explain the process really well and I felt completely comfortable throughout. Would definitely recommend Keith to anyone looking for an agent in Ottawa!
By: Catherine Ferrarotto
Sylvie was our agent of choice after meeting with two others. She was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. We never felt like just a listing to her. She knew the area and the market well. Professional, timely and friendly, we could always reach her with any concern. From initial contact and first meeting we never felt rushed in any of our discussions. Through picture taking and movie making during these trying times, to selling and signing, a truly pleasant and highly successful experience with Sylvie.
By: Parniyan Tayebi
Working with Saeideh was an absolute pleasure. I recommend her and Tulip team without reservation. When my husband and I decided buying our first home, it was in the middle of the COVID situation and our first meeting with Saeideh was through a video call, her professional behavior and her honest words made her the realtor of our choice instantly. During this journey, she provided us with exceedingly valuable insight. More than just being skilled, she is dedicated to her client. I loved that I would always get a quick response to my questions. She was on top of everything before I even asked! Even through all stressful situation, her calm and caring manner directed us to the best results. We could not be happier than this!
By: Kaveh Shakouri
Buying and selling a property is one of the most challenging and stressful processes in life, and when it comes to go through both at the same time, you definitely need someone dedicated and committed; who has expertise you can count on in every step of the way. Saeideh Shabani is dedicated , trustworthy and cares a lot about her clients. During this challenging and uncertain times, Saeideh did an amazing job, she went above and beyond to make sure we have everything we need in place and she managed to sell our house over asking price in a week and helped us buy our dream home stress-free and with peace of mind. I highly recommend Saeideh and The Tulip Team if you are looking for your dream home or trying to sell your house. You can be sure that you are in good hands.
I was in great hands with Ryan and Keith. They were always available to answer any questions that I and and they took every measure to reassure me during these uncertain times. They went above and beyond in their service and I will be forever grateful!
By: Mohamed Zourob
I had superior service from Alex and would gladly recommend him to anyone. He is very honest and knowledgeable about what he does, and assisted me with the full process of buying a house.
By: L. Mohd
Thank you Reed for dedication and professionalism. Reed did very excellent work and he is very helpful, a wealth of knowledge. We would highly recommend them!!
By: N. Bakht
Reed is a phenomenal real estate professional. He is knowledgeable, thorough, an excellent communicator and most importantly, kind and thoughtful. We have turned to him for advice even after he helped us purchase a condo. We recommend him highly. You will not be disappointed.
By: Z. Cai
Reed is a very passionate agent, providing professional services and advices. He has done a great job on negotiation and comparison of pros and cons of similar properties. He is also very timely and courteous during the transaction.
By: R. Trudel
Reed was filling-in for another agent on vacation when we called him to buy a condo. We found him to be very knowledgeable and professional. Would not hesitate in recommending him for a real estate transaction. Thank you Reed.
By: W.A. Safadi
I believe that i was so fortunate to work with Reed. I felt 110% confident by partnering with him. He keeps his client’s best interests in sharp focus, he is a skilled listener and negotiator. It was a seller market; we went through some tough bid wars. Reed remained calm and confident through all of the bumps. He meets all expectation and he is definitely has “got your back”
By: L. Patterson
Reed is a dedicated professional. He is a tactful but forceful negotiator who worked tirelessly to ensure that I got the best deal possible for the house I wanted. Since closing the deal, he has stayed in touch to see how things have worked out with the new home. He's highly motivated and serious about his work yet also quite personable - highly recommended.
By: D. Wang
Reed is a fantastic buying agent who impressed me with his confidence and resolve. He's not afraid to really go for it when negotiating for his clients' best interests and does his utmost to make sure you don't have to settle for any less than his best effort. I had a small budget and so it was harder, less lucrative, and much more time-consuming for him to help me find a home, but he never made me feel like I was taking up too much of his time, and was never anything less than patient and optimistic. He's also very approachable and easy to talk to. I'm a ridiculously curious and detail-oriented person and he was always enthusiastic about answering any questions I had or finding out what we wanted to know. If you're looking to buy a house, I would highly recommend him.
By: A. Rai
Being an impatient man myself, little did i know that house buying cannot be done in a month or so and Reed gave me assurance that we'll find a suitable spot sooner than later. He took the time to evaluate my needs and never let me rush into the decision of buying the property. We kept the search active for couple of months until we hit the bulls eye. His knowledge about the neighborhood, house evaluation, honest opinion and most importantly what i was looking for made this process go smooth in casual and professional manner. Reed knows the property as soon as he opens the front door :) He's well verse with property info on all the neighbourhoods in Ottawa and he got a great sense of humor too. I am already recommending him to my friends & family and you just cant go wrong with this guy.
By: B. Natividad
We were fortunate to have Reed as our agent when we decided to list our condo and search for a larger, but low maintenance property. Reed lined up many showings and helped guide us to a property that was a perfect fit for us. He listened to our comments and showed endless patience and positivity during our search. Although he acted as our purchasing agent, I know he was instrumental in the timely sale of our condo at asking price. I would not hesitate to recommend Reed to anyone who needs an honest, hardworking and dependable agent!
By: S & N
Reed was fantastic in the process of helping us purchase our first home. We initially met with him a year before we were ready and he took the time to explain the whole home buying process to us. When we were ready to start looking he was eager to listen to our ideas and guide us in the right direction. It was a great experience to work together.
By: M. Tesfumrim
Reed is a man who cares about his client's expectations and dreams home. He has the ability to read one's needs promptly. Even though I had a hard time to negotiate and explain my desire home because of my lack of communicating the English language, Reed made things look much simpler and insignificant. With his hard-working and dedication, I really wish him success in his new promotion and hopefully succeeds. Melake's Family
By: H. Goulet
Sylvie is honest, energetic, hard-working and has a social conscience, helping less fortunate people with some of her fees. She is very accurate when it comes to advice on sale price and best times to list. She follows up on every visit for feedback which she shares quickly. She has assembled an excellent team who assist her efforts in marketing, social media, administrative duties and has buyers’ agents on the team. She is fluently bilingual. I would highly recommend Sylvie and her team.
By: A. Mongane
Owen has not only been my agent, but he made me feel special as a person seeking to get a home in Canada. He's very open and trustworthy. Was able to tell me what was good for me and my family. Regarding communication even outside the country, Owen was outstanding in using all means of communication to keep me informed about all the process. I will highly recommend him to all my friends.
By: M & S
Keith offers you honesty and year of experiences in Ottawa real estate market. he has a very good knowledge about neighborhoods and share it with you even if it end up with cancelling the deal. this is the most important thing you expect from your realtor. I saw many realtors that are cheap and just to earn their money faster, they encourage you to buy something that is problematic. but with Keith, you know that you are not missing anything that might affect your decision and it is late to realize after closing the deal. I highly recommend Keith and his team as I have very good experience with them in my last 3 house purchase.
By: J. Hopkins
Keith made the whole process easy. The photos, videos, showings, feedback from prospective buyers, weekly reports on the interest in our home... loved it all.
By: S. Carty
I was told by both the agents and the lawyers that I had the hardest sale ever. Turns out my existing house and garage are on separate pins. That said, on title, I owned my house, and the two times previous owner owned the garage. It was never registered in my name. I don't think I have sworn out loud as much in the past 2 weeks as I have in my lifetime, The thought of losing the sale of my existing house, and the purchase of a new house for an issue outside anyone's control was real. Thank you Re-max (and Title Insurance) for being supportive, understanding, and a great go between in order to keep me sane and ensure the sale and purchase was on track. Picked up my keys today!!! Keith was professional and to the point. Ryan, his partner was patient during the house search and put up with my indecisiveness. This is a team I highly recommend. Keep up the good work!!
By: S. St-HiIaire
Knowledgeable, experienced, takes the time to clearly explain the market. I have been dealing with Keith for a few years now and would highly recommend him.

Excellent services!!!Keith Bray is the best! He has helped us a lot of buying our first house and he keeps updating the market information for us.
By: L. Chiew
Keith is a great real estate agent. He has been very helpful to us with finding our investment property and we thoroughly enjoyed working with him.
Keith went far and beyond on helping us to find our future house. He is knowledgeable on the market. For sure you will make the right choice with his guidance. He is actively making sure you don't miss any datelines, always on time for all meetings, and shows that you, as a client, is the most important thing for him.
By: J. Sprinkle
I highly recommend Alex, as a first time home buyer he was able to guide me through the process and answer all of my many questions in a very timely manor.

Our biggest fear was, and is the actual move. After 31 years in this house, there is a lot to do. The house isn’t perfect, naturally, so there is the work to make it ready to sell. There is the work of decluttering and getting rid of “stuff” so that we can downsize. There is the sadness of leaving neighbours who are such good friends, and a neighbourhood which has so many good memories. And it’s a neighbourhood that we would have liked to stay in due to nearness to so many amenities and convenience. It has a high walkability score. But there are very few bungalows in this neighbourhood and fewer still have been for sale over the past three years. And we need to make this move sooner rather than later. We can’t keep procrastinating! You gave us timelines to prepare for showings, which helped us prepare mentally and physically for selling our house. You called the new house our “dream house”, which helped put it in perspective as a good choice, or actually a near perfect choice for us. Writing out the letter for the seller was helpful in making all of the attributes of the house real. After 3 years of looking at options, there has never been one that met all our wishes. We are confident that this is a good choice for us. We met you during an open house at another house on our street and we’re impressed at your promptness at following up with us and providing us with information. Your emails with listings helped us to learn more about the availability of bungalows in this community. Every question we had was answered and you actively helped us search. It’s been many years since we bought or sold a house, so we’re not sure your methods are different from other agents, but you were never pushy, never impatient, and always ethical. You have responded whenever we had an interest in a home, and gave us prompt replies to questions. You also went door to door looking for potential sellers in our neighbourhood. I would hope other agents are like this! Your team is thorough, and experienced, always helpful. We would be happy to recommend you to others.
By: J. Cole
Reed and his team at The Tulip Team, RE/MAX Hallmark did a fantastic job negotiating a price for our new condo and selling our home in Orleans. Reed was always available to answer our questions and explained the buying and selling processes. He put together a great strategy for selling our home and was available through every step of the process. I can't say enough good comments about Reed and his excellent team.
By: M. Sohrabi
Keith is an expert agent. He knows his job and respects your decision. He is also very patient and lets you find what you are looking for. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a REALTOR®.

Simply put, Reed is awesome. Can't ask for a better agent. His passion, knowledge and all around professional, yet friendly approach makes for a great real estate partner to work with in finding and closing deals!

Sylvie Bégin is a friendly and very experienced REALTOR® who understands very well the real estate market. Her passion combined with her experience and team work resulted in a very positive outcome for us. She understands very well her clients needs, so that she may always exceed their expectations.
By: J. Hopkins
Keith made the whole process easy. The photos, video, showings, feedback from prospective buyers, weekly reports on the interest in our home...loved it all!

Sylvie a travaillé fort pour vendre ma maison et l'a vendue en 4 jours. Elle est très professionnelle, connaissance de mon quartier, Sylvie a travaille avec moi pour plus d'un an à l'organisation de ma maison pour un bon succès. Malgré que je suis triste d'avoir vendue ma maison avec 20 ans de bons souvenirs, je suis heureuse que le tout s'est déroulé comme un charme. Je vair redemander Sylvie à l'achet de ma prochaine maison, c'est certain.
By: J. Horner
Keith represented me extremely well throughout the whole process. Took the time to explain and coach me, which made things go very smoothly. I would have no problem referring Keith to friends and family. Thanks Keith for your professionalism, patience and understanding.

Reed is a professional, always on-time and is pro-active. Reed comes prepared and always does his research. He provides a buyer and the seller with all of the requires and researched information to make a well informed decision.

Sylvie is an exceptional, highly professional real estate agent. On top of her outstanding professional skills, we appreciated her warm personality, which really helped to make the home buying process much less stressful. She prepared a thorough snalysis of hte market in the area we were interested in. This, and her excellent negotiation skills, allowed us to purchase the house at the price close to 10% lower than the asking price, in the hot 2019 Ottawa market! Always available, always helpful. We would recommend Sylvie, without hesitation, to any prospective buyer or seller.
By: J. Kaur
Keith and his team were awesome from start to finish. I, and my family were provided with great details of the city and surrounding areas to aid in determining the best places to search for our home. We were accomodated with our tight schedule to find a home within a week, and were shown all of hte homes that we wanted to see in a very timely manner. Once we found a house that fit what we were looking for, Keith's team was there for all steps of negotiating an offer, arranging and being present for the inspection, and finally seeing all final details. As well, what was most appreciated was the extra resources such as MoveSnap, as well as promptly helping with referrals to other professionals who were also great, such as a lawyer for the purchase, home insurance agent and specialists such as a pool inspector. Overall, we were very happy and satisfied with the expertise, professionalism and personal touch that Keith and his team brought to our home finding journey. We would definitely reach out to him again when the need arises, and refer him to others!

Before buying a home, my wife and I were concerned that we'd end up paying more than we wanted to; and that our house purchase may not include some of the features we were looking for. Reed addressed our concerns with his extensive knowledge of the housing market and he was confidant we would find a house that met our price point and would meet all of our needs. He kept us informed throughout the house hunting process, was always available for a quick question, and was a calming presence. At different points, we found ourselves feeling rushed to find a home, but Reed reassured us that other exciting homes would soon be available. This put our minds at ease. Reed also made sure that the house we bought was right for us. Before we jumped into any viewings, we met for nearly two hours to discuss everything that we were looking for and Reed helped us refine our idea of what was realisticnfor our budget when it came to location and features. As first time home buyers, we expected the process to be long and complicated and this turned out to be somewhat true. Fortunately, Reed prepared us by clearly communicating important steps and timelines in advance so that we were always prepared to make the right decision. Additionally, Reed was always available to respond to questions or prepare necessary documentation, regardless of time of day. We found this really great because we often thought of questions after regular work hours and Reed's timely texts or emails allowed us to relax before bed. In the end, we ended up buying a home for less than we expected and it checked all o fht eboxes that we'd prioritized. It's also really close to family, which is a bonnus. We highly recommend Reed because he's knowldgeable, personable, reliable and hardworking.
By: E. Bertrand
My wife and I had outgrown out rental house with our growing family. We were in the market for our first home and Alex was so patient with us. We had a lot of questions and he helped us through every step of the way. I can't thank him enough for working so hard and helping us find our dream home. We had met a few REALTOR®'s but by far Alex was the best, he really cared about us, and our needs. I highly recommend him!
By: M. Moradi-Haghgoo
Saeideh was very kind, hard working and caring throughout this process. She was always smiling and giving me alternative solutions. She always put her clients first and would work after hours to make them find their dream home. I can not thank her enough. She is a great agent, and a true friend!
By: C. Hupé
Sylvie was referred by a friend. I interviewed her and a couple of other agents to make my choice to sell my condo. Sylvie stood out with her communication skills, her professionalism, listening skills and honesty. Throughout the selling process she always kept me informed by phone and by e-mail. My condo was sold within a month a my asking price. I was very satisfied and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.
By: Majed & Sanaz
Keith offers you honesty and years of experience in Ottawa real estate. He has a very good knowledge about neighbourhoods and shares it with you, even if it cancels a potential deal. This is the most important thing that you expect from your REALTOR®. I saw many REALTOR®'s that are cheap, and just want to earn their money faster, they encourage you to buy something that may be problematic; but with Keith, you know that you are not missing any information that might affect your decision. I highly recommend Keith and his team as I have had a very good experience with them in my last 3 house purchases!
By: S. Blair
Alex did an amazing job helping me find and purchase my condo! He has integrity and I would highly recommend him to anyone!
By: T. Lavigne
Looking to upsize from a condo in this sellers market can be intimidating, but Keith and his team kept us feeling confident that we would find something that fit our needs and wants while staying within our budget. We looked at a number of houses with Owen and Saeideh before finding the right home at the right time, and with their expertise and guidance we were able to get an offer in that was accepted without having to stretch our budget. For experience, expertise and the flexibility to work within your schedule this team can't be beat! I will definitely recommend Keith, Saeideh and all of The Tulip Team to all of my friends and family!
By: C. Fournier
Dès les premiers instants de notre recontre initiale avec Sylvie, on savait qu'on avait affaire avec une professionelle expérimentée. Elle étair préparée, avait fait toutes les recherches appropriées au sujet de notre demeure et conaissait bien le marché! Tout au long de notre processus de vente, la communication a été claire et cordiale. Sylvie nous a référé à d'excellents professionels pour des travaux s'appoimt. Sylvie est chaleureuse, amicale et prend à coeur nos besoins. Elle s'est investie pour nouse et en sommes vraiment reconnaissants! La vente de la maison de notre mère avec Sylvie a été un charme. Je vous la recommande chaudement!
By: Anonymous First Time Home Buyer
My partner and I were in the market for our first house, and we had little knowledge about the buying process going into it. We ended up speaking to a few REALTOR®'s, and even meeting with one at a house that we were interested in, before deciding to work with Reed; who we felt would not only be good at advising us and negotiating on our behalf, but would be doing so with our best interests in mind. It turned out to be a great decision. Reed was knowledgeable and extremely helpful throughout the buying process. He was always quick to reply (we texted regularly, which I found to be a good way to communicate effectively in a market where it pays to be quick!) and got right on top of whatever was needed. We got a house we love, and are excited to move into, and I think Reed's quickness in acting to get us to see it, submit a bid, etc, combined with his advice, helped us get it for much cheaper than it seems would have been possible if we had delayed even a half day more. Overall, we are very happy with the experience and would recommend working with Reed to others wholeheartedly!
By: R. Salehi
Saeideh was so supportive during the process of buying our town house. We visited many properties and she was always so patient. Even when I was away from Ottawa, she visited different properties on my behalf. She was professional, knowledgeable, honest, straight forward and very kind. We are so happy to work with Saeideh and highly recommend her service.
By: W. Titcombe
Bill Meyer was instrumental in assisting in selling our home for more than the asking price. Bill was very efficient in returning and acknowledging any communication. We were particularly impressed with his marketing technique and with the fantastic result. We would highly recommend Bill Meyer and his team to any of our friends and would certainly use him again. Thanks, Bill, for great service!
By: Justin Mondoux
Keith and team provided me with great support and advice throughout a recent townhouse purchase. This included detailed market analysis and providing amazing client service, including; quickly answering any and all questions, giving advice re: how to gauge the level of expertise my banker has, and making sure I was being well looked after even while he was away on vacation by regularly checking in. He made a tough moving situation smooth and stress free, great to deal with!
By: T. Annable
Alex was great at helping me get my first home. He was always very fast to respond, and was able to get me in to view properties very quickly, often the same day. If Alex happened to be unavailable for any reason he always ensured that another agent was able to help us, or show us properties. Unlike other agents, Alex was honest and knowledgeable about areas that would be suitable to my need. I would certainly use him again to find a property. Thanks Alex!
By: W. Titcombe
Ryan Brown was very helpful in getting a visit to the property we were interested in purchasing. We knew the area and when we saw the listing we were excited to visit the property. Ryan was available on our terms, as we were preparing to leave town for a vacation. His responses to e-mails and texts were prompt and he acknowledged the communication even if he did not immediately have the answer. Knowing the communication had been received helped to ease our minds. We are continuing to use his services as we prepare to move into our new home and would certainly recommend Ryan to our friends!
By: M. Khorami
Ms. Shabani recently helped our family purchase our home. She did an excellent job of listening and identifying the properties that would best fit our needs. Saeideh was understanding, patient, and accommodating of our limited time for viewings. Saeideh went the extra mile to arrange as many viewings as we did ask to see. She exhibited expertise and professionalism as a REALTOR. We felt well represented and obtained great advice through the buying process. We are very happy that we could get our home in the desired location and within our budget and expectations! We highly recommend Ms. Shabani as a Professional Real Estate Agent!
By: Sandra Weston
Following our initial meeting with Sylvie it took us no time at all to decide to list our condo with her. Not only is she very professional, but her pleasant personality, enthusiasm and energy made her the obvious choice. Being first time sellers we were totally unfamiliar with the process and had lots of questions. Sylvie answered them all and throughout each phase kept us involved and informed through visits, emails, and phone calls. She s very easy to talk to, was always on top of everything that had to be done and her cheerful and friendly nature made working with her a real pleasure. Sylvie and her team handled all of the details making the whole process a very simple one for us and we couldn't have asked for a better outcome. Thanks to her and her team we accepted an offer on our condo in just 3 days and would highly recommend them to anyone considering selling their condo or house!
By: E. Matos
It's not often that one finds a fantastic agent like Reed. He was one of the most patient, kind and knowledgeable agents that I have ever dealt with. He showed me several properties and was always available to accommodate my schedule. He took the time to explain the layout of the properties and advised me through the negotiation process. He is definitely an expert in his field. If you are looking for the absolutely perfect agent; Reed Allen would be the smart choice! Cheers!
By: Yousef Pourang
Alex was very helpful throughout the entire process. Alex responds very quickly, and he is ready to talk. It was our pleasure having Alex as our agent. I highly recommend Alex to everyone. Thanks Alex!
By: I. Dim
Alex has been very prompt in getting all of the information that I needed. An excellent negotiator, he handled all the details with professionalism. He provided me with honest and realistic advice.
By: C & B McMeekin
Owen was outstanding from the very beginning. We started off looking for a rental, but decided to switch gears and buy a house. Owen kept all doors and options open during the whole process. He was very professional and made every attempt to keep in communication with us through the whole experience. We ended up buying a home in Embrun, Ontario. Throughout the buying process Owen met us at several rural locations, sometimes within hours of a property being listed. He offered advice and solutions to all of our needs. I would recommend Owen to anyone looking for a realtor, and use him for any sort of future transactions. Thank you Owen!
By: Melanie H.
Ryan was fantastic to work with for the purchase of our new home. He conducted himself in a professional manner, was honest with his advice and expertise and was very knowledgeable for the entire process. We were lucky to have Ryan on our side when a house we had previously loved was sold conditionally and then came back on the market. Ryan got us in quickly to see the house, and was ready too start making offers on our behalf. It was a pleasure working with Ryan and I would definitely recommend him in the future.
By: W. Leung
I had been looking to downsize into a condo apartment, it was difficult to find an ideal one due to working on a budget. Saeideh was so patient and understanding of my concerns. She took me to countless showings, was always punctual and pleasant with a smile on her face. She negotiated well, always in my best interest and fully understood the properties. I would not hesitate to recommend her service.
By: P. Cuoto
Alex was a great REALTOR® for us, as first time buyers. I remember him meeting us at the drop of a hat, and driving far distances to view homes with us. He is genuine, and knowledgeable. We follow him on social media and he has become more stellar of an agent. I particularly enjoy his market update videos.
By: C. Youmans
This team had the utmost professionalism. Sold my home quickly at a good price.
By: D. Ogiemudia
Ok here we were, first time home buyers excited about the prospects of owning our first home. We were certainly not prepared for the surprise that followed! The intricacies of searching for the right fit, negotiation, bidding wars, closing the deal and moving were going to dampen out high spirit but for the skill, experience and professionalism and constant reassurance of the The Tulip Team. We got the home we wanted because of their dexterity and understanding of the market and the entire home buying process from start to finish. I will highly recommend!
By: A & H Rashad
Keith helped me choose my second home in Ottawa last month. He is very professional and has provided all of the tools and information that was required for me to make a decision about the home that we purchased. He has also shown great talent in negotiation and managed to prepare an offer that was accepted among a total of 12 offers on this house. I want to thank you, Keith, and your lovely team member Saeideh for helping me and my family all the way. I will indeed use Keith's services again on our next home purchase.
By: R. Burge
Reed was recommended to me and has exceeded my expectations. I am a first time home buyer and he helped me understand the process by answering all of my questions about closing costs, Ottawa Real Estate and neighbourhoods. Reed was easy to contact, knowledgeable about the market and about the options I had within my budget. Reed worked with his team to accommodate viewings during long weekends and during the week which was awesome - I always felt confident I would get a quick reply. During the bidding process, his advice helped me make a competitive offer that was within my budget. Excellent service all around!
By: K & A
Keith has made our move from another city and province a breeze. He worked with us efficiently even though we would consider ourself far less than ideal customers. He was understaning when we gave him an initial list of 150+ properties and helped us narrow it down to a manageable selection. He provided extremely valuable input in form of market trends and historical knowledge of city and its ongoing development. He remained patient and helped us adjust our target list, even after we've scopecreeped into a different area of the city and different price range. He has scheduled over 50 and he visited 48 houses with us prior to finding the one we are happy to call our forever home. Coming from another province he has taken time to explain us the transaction process thoroughly and connected us with other experts. He scheduled all external visits, such as inspections, and made recommendations that saved us valuable time and in the end of it, money. By leading through the entire process he took the burden out of property transaction entirely. Bottom line, I doubt that a better agent exist in Ottawa.
By: R. David
We had an excellent experience with Keith. As first-time home owners, we had a lot of questions, were very nervous buyers and knew very little about the entire process. Keith was there for us every step of the way and provided great advise. He was always very quick to respond to all our questions and was very understanding and patient with us. He was always very thoughtful of what we wanted and mindful of our unique situation. We wouldn't pick any other realtor to work with us in the future!
By: J. Wallace
Sylvie was very professional and very supportive during the entire sale process. She worked very hard with her photographer and videographer to showcase our home in the best possible light. Sylvie worked really hard with showings to make our sale happen in a timely manner.
By: Debbie & Wayne Nyman
Thank you so much for all of your help and hard work in finding our Ottawa home! We have been so happy with your patience and flexibility. We are very grateful to have met you and to have you as our REALTOR®!
By: Andi Balla
I met Keith in August 2018, and since the first time I met him I have had a great experience. As a first time home buyer you can sometimes feel insecure and Keith was very helpful by explaining everything and making everything seem clear and easy. Every time I asked him he never hesitated, and never postponed showings. As a newcomer here in Ottawa (April 2018) he gave me great info about all of the neighbourhoods and houses. I really apreciate the fact that he kept me updated all the time, and I am also very happy that I purchased the house that I was looking for. Both Keith, and Alex were very helpful and very nice, and the process went smooth and everything was fine. I strongly recommend Keith to all of my colleagues and friends!
By: Guy Lacroix
When it came to buying a new home my fears were rooted in all of the work that was involved in researching properties and then not finding the one, and/or settling for one that is not the best option. Reed helped us by taking care of most of the research and leg work. We saw many properties with Reed to no avail - they just were not up to par - and Reed never lost patience , but kept working to find us a property which would fit our requirements. We were finally lucky enough to acquire a nice triplex - which was not even on the market yet! How many exclusive properties had we possibly missed while not using an agent? Working with Reed will save you time and labour which might be the difference between the perfect purchase, and no purchase at all, or a purchase that is not the right fit.
By: Joanne & Giulio
One of our biggest fears about buying a home was the rising house prices. Alex made sure to show us homes within our price range. He is very courteous, patient and well informed. He kept us up to date about new properties by email - which was very helpful and much appreciated. The entire process was very well handled. Alex made a number of suggestions and helped us to find a home inspector. Not to mention being very resourceful in locating our lawyer during the holiday season. We will definitely recommend Alex to our friends and colleagues - your customer service was excellent!
By: Joyce & Lee
Sylvie, We want to thank you very much for a job well done. We would not hesitate to recommend you. You and your team worked very hard to get us a good price in a short span of time.
By: Dawn Abercrombie
The Tulip Team at RE/MAX is an excellent choice for a realty team. From start to finish this team was professional, experienced and knowledgeable. Beginning with preliminary discussions with real estate agent, Bill Meyer, his extensive experience in buying and selling homes put me at ease. This is the second time I have hired Bill Meyer as my real estate representative and I have been very happy to have him on my "team". Suzie, the team's home stager, wrote a detailed list of staging tops geared specifically for my house. The team's photographer took excellent photos and the entire process of buying and selling was so easy!! Thanks!!!
By: Kevin Ladd
Keith, You and your team did a great job. Selling a home for someone who has lived in one's home for a many years can be a more than a bit overwhelming and I would be lying if I said it was devoid of emotion. Keith and his team were patient and understanding with me whilst focusing on the common goal of getting the house sold for the best market price. Very professional, understanding and focused on the objective!!
Keith is an excellent professional : patient, respectful, he understands quickly the needs of his clients. He perfectly knows the real estate market in Ottawa. I appreciated a lot his quick feed back, reliability as I was not based in Ottawa. Moreover he is bilingual. To sum-up : an excellent professional. He is not going to waste your time ! Special thanks also to Sylvie whose vibrant description of the condo I've just bought thanks to her video posted in KIJIJI site.
By: Régent Henrie
Sylvie est une agent avec beaucoup d'énergie et se dévoue a 100% pour ces clients. Dans mes deux dernières transactions Sylvie a vendue dans un temps record de 4hrs. Et m'a deuxième vente dans 4 jours. Cela est exceptionnel!
By: Elizabeth Kostash
Hi Sylvie, First of all I want to tell you that you did a wonderful job. My major fear was that I wasn't planning to move this year so I was not prepared nor was the house. I chose you because you were the agent for the seller of this house when I bought it nineteen years ago, and then you sold my house on McLaren. You offered more services than other agents. The number of times you and your team were here to offer advice and set the house right. Finally, the house sold very quickly and you were really knowledgeable about the asking price. Thank you so very much.
By: Sherri L. Nipius
I initially met Alex a couple of years ago after my separation and he was the agent involved in showing me the condominium unit that I have been renting. I found him to be extremely pleasant and professional. He assisted me quickly with the required background check and completion of the paperwork to ensure that I could secure the lease within a tight timeframe. When I recently learned that my landlord had decided to put the property on the market and I was subsequently informed by my family that I could have some assistance with a down-payment to purchase a new place of my own, I contacted Alex immediately to help make this new dream a reality for me. Alex is an excellent listener and he expertly took all of my financial and personal “wish list” items into account to assist with my search. Thanks to his extensive knowledge and good business sense I was able to find the perfect stacked townhome that I can now call mine. I am also appreciative of all of his time, effort and dedication (available daytime, evenings, and weekends – by telephone and E-mail) which includes “walking” me through the various stages of the buying process, sound advice regarding negotiation of the sale, and even offering to attend the meeting with the buyer and her agent to ensure that the deal was successful. Without hesitation, I would recommend that others contact Alex for their real estate needs. I am most certain that they will be grateful to receive the same superior service in order to achieve the outcome that they want.
By: Chris Hein
This was my second time working with Keith to find a house and I was highly satisfied with both outcomes! Keith is very knowledgeable and easy to get ahold of. I would use Keith in the future and recommend him to anyone.
By: Doug Little
Bill Meyer did an incredible job of communicating and meeting with us several times during the process of listing, preparation, showing and selling our property. He literally held our hand through the whole process. His professionalism, the marketing of our home - pictures and a great video - produced almost instant interest and a sale within days. My wife and I thank Bill and strongly recommend Bill Meyer as a real estate professional.
By: Melissa McKinnon
***** 5 Star Service! This was my first time buying a house and Reed Allen made the ups and downs of all the searching for the perfect house amazing. He really listened and understood our very unique needs and wants. We thank you so much!
By: Lucie and Marc
Yahoo!! Awesome job Keith and Alex, everything went so smoothly! We felt in really good hands with all of you throughout the process. Great job everyone! We finally have our Dream Home!

Reed: Thanks for getting us over the first few hurdles of purchasing our next home! We appreciate your time during this process - especially over the Victoria Day long weekend. Thank you for your reassurance that our dream house neighboring our family is still secured for us!

By: Jane Yardley
Bill Meyer was excellent in helping me with my slightly different situation. I live out of province and was trying to sell my rental property. He nailed the timing of the sale and the pricing of the property. It sold above asking price almost as soon as it was open to offers. Bill was very flexible in his communications with me, and handled a lot of the back and forth with my tenants. He is very pleasant and easy to work with. I would gladly recommend him to any of my friends.
By: Claudette Hupé
Sylvie Begin was referred by a friend. I interviewed her and a couple of other agents to make my choice to sell my condo. Sylvie stood out with her communication skills, her professionalism, listening skills and honesty. Through out the selling process she always kept me informed by phone and by e-mail. My condo was sold within a month at my asking price. I was very satisfied and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.
By: Gilles Courtemanche
The zeal, enthusiasm and professionalism she displayed to sell my condo were outstanding. Her expertise to prepare the publicity campaign and her negotiation technique were key elements which contributed to achieving the goals I had set for this transaction. I would have no hesitation to call on her services for an eventual transaction in the future.
By: Laurel Bouskill
There are no words for how amazing this man is. He is a superhero who went the distance for my family and I. He kept us positive when we could not find the right house to move into and when we did finally find one, he made it easy to negotiate the extremely challenging hurdles that kept cropping up. Keith's smile and positive attitude was what kept us going at our bleakest moments. Thank you, thank you, thank you Keith!
By: Laurel Bouskill
Sylvie just makes things happen! Her experience and expertise are unparalleled. Thank you Sylvie...again...for another successful outcome. Your hard work and willingness to work hard for us made our dreams become a reality. We've sold and are moving back to the country.
By: Jason d'Eon
Keith is a smooth operator. He never looses control during negotiations and gets the results we wanted! He is also fully aware of the pros and cons of the properties and fully discloses them to you! And he knows the ins and outs of military moves! And all-around cool dude!
By: Gilles Ciurtemanche
L'ardeur, l'enthousiasme et le professionnalisme déployés par Sylvie Bégin pour vendre mon condo ont été remarquables. Son expertise pour préparer la campagne de publicité et sa technique de négociation ont été des éléments-clés pour atteindre les objectifs fixés dans un délai très court. Je n'hésiterais pas à faire appel à ses services à l'avenir.
By: Tricia Murray-d
We sold the house!! Time to celebrate a job well-done! Keith Bray, thank you once again for being the best Realtor in Ottawa. I cannot believe how easy you make this process. You've talked me through the chaos on several occasions now and I thank you so much! Next step: buying a house in Halifax!!
By: Zohrab Ismail
Keith put my interests first. He is very knowledgeable and a great adviser. I was 500km outside of Ottawa, Keith went out of his way to view properties for me and worked with me to find the one that best met my needs, not the one most lucrative. I would highly recommend Keith to anyone looking for a home in the Ottawa area.
By: Laura Donato Milito
It was an absolute pleasure working with Sylvie the Queen of Quinterra for the listing of my home. She was well prepared, very professional, eager and her attitude made this experience great! My home was sold in 14 days thanks to her team. Thank you REMAX!!

Bill made the whole process of selling my mothers home painless. It was a pleasure working with Bill. He was able to sell the unit when I needed to have it done. Great work Bill!!!
By: Marie Mudenge
Keith was an amazing realtor. As a first time home buyer. There is a lot we did not know. He was very knowledgeable. He was very professional and so patient with us. Always Kept an eye out for us when there was new house that met our criteria that was on the market . He would send us an email to see if we would like to go visit. He always responded when we had any questions. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a house .
Wow, I am so pleased with the speed (4 days) and results (99% of asking and 6 week close) of this very clean (home inspection and nothing to fix up) sale of my home. Sylvie is a true professional, knowledgeable, persistent, and has built up a great team to support buying and selling homes. I thought about Comfree but believe it would have been more frustrating, stressful and in the end would not have gained very much. Congratulations on sale 1801….
By: Sandra & Bruce
Hi Keith, Thanks for taking good care of us in finding our new home. Bruce and I have thoroughly enjoyed having you as our agent. We will definitely recommend you to anyone we know who is searching for a home.
By: Laurier Piquette
My experience with Keith was fantastic! He knows his stuffs. Often I had questions difficult for me but he's just like a mind reader he will give you an answer then you are speechless because you know he s got the experien ce and it works. He always ahead of the game and he will help you no matter what. Anyone looking to buy a house do not wait ask for Keith he will help you out. I am a very busy person as a trucker and he did some of my work at times which I appreciated big time. Keith knows how to read your mind and very intelligent person and above all respects your decisions but he will put his tips to you if he think you are off track. He saved me a lot of time and money.

Keith, Thank you very, very much! We are delighted with our first home purchase. We keep saying to each other how lucky we are because you are so amazing at your job.

We will definitely spread the word and highly recommend you to our friends and family. We know for sure we could not have found a better agent than you! We appreciate everything you've done for us. Thanks, Louise & Eric

As first time home buyers, we had such a positive experience with Keith. He was patient, attentive and thorough. He understood our needs, gave us plenty of his time and ensured that the biggest transaction of our lives would be a stress free one. We love our new home. We'll be back when comes the time for an upgrade!

We would like to thank Reed Allen for his professional attitude and dedication in helping us with the purchase of a condo unit at Botanica Private. Reed was also very helpful in helping us navigate through the requirements. We are approaching closing day on this transaction with the confidence that all will go smoothly. Thanks again Reed.

This is a three/peat....third time really is a charm. Bill sold our first condo in 1 week, sold our second in 1 week + 1 day...so now we challenged him with our larger house, in rural water, on the Ottawa River, and he & his team outdid themselves, sold full price in 3 days. Professional, organized, honest, direct, knowledgeable, the traits of this well put together team led by Bill. What is especially great about this team is that they have each other's back when one is away or not available, you always feel like they are all working for you together. When the negotiations get tough, you can always count on Bill to bring quick resolution to any issue. We have had the misfortune of working with other agencies in the past, and there is no doubt in our mind that the best in Ottawa is this team. Thanks Bill & Team.

Thank you Sylvie for your hard work in getting our house sold. We are so glad we saw you sign on Trenton back in April and gave you a call! We appreciate how you instigated, then navigated through multiple offers on Saturday. Thanks also for all of the following up you have done in the last couple of days. We are grateful!

Keith, Acheter à l'étranger est une expérience enrichissante, excitante mais un peu stressante aussi. Alors, un grand merci pour la relation de confiance que vous avez su installer et pour votre aide précieuse dans l'acquisition de cette maison. Nous sommes certains qu'elle abritera beaucoup d'heureux moments en famille et entre amis... Au plaisir de vous revoir et encore merci.
I would like to thank Keith and his team for all their hard work and success in helping me find my first home. Buying a home can be an overwhelming process but Keith made it less stressful and enjoyable. He was always available to answer my questions promptly and kept me up to date on the upcoming steps and decisions. Keith was always extremely flexible whenever I was interested in seeing a home and is very knowledgeable on the details of the home. Keith is a very friendly and courteous professional and he made me feel comfortable from day one. I thank Keith for his amazing service and I am 100% satisfied with my first time home buying experience. I strongly recommend Keith as a realtor and will definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Thank you Keith!!

We would like to extend our sincerest thanks to our real estate agent Reed Allen for helping us find our first home. Reed was the second agent that we had used after a difficult experience with another real estate agent. We had our backs up a bit going into our initial meeting with Reed until we started talking and we immediately recognized a difference with Reed from our first agent. He was very engaged in what we were looking for and what our priorities were in a house. As we moved forward in our house search we found that with each place we saw our priorities and requirements changed and Reed was accommodating. During viewings he allowed us to get a feel for the house on our own without proving a lot of his own input until after we looked through the house. We really appreciated this because we found that sometimes agents can provide too much input that distracts you from developing your own opinions about a house. Reed would provide knowledgeable input when needed and made sure that potential issues with some houses didn't go unnoticed. We had lots of fun looking for our first house and we are really excited to move into our new home in May. We would certainly refer Reed's services to anyone looking to buy a home in Ottawa. Thank you very much Reed. E & G

This is my third real estate transaction with The Tulip Team and it was another huge success! Even though the property was a tough sale, Bill keep plugging along and pushed me not to give up! I relied and his confidence and previous success's to handle this transaction and he came through! All with a pleasant and professional manor along the way. I would HIGHLY recommend Bill, and Keith Bray who did my previous transactions, to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Ottawa area! Thanks again!
Dear Keith, I was very impressed by your professionalism and availability to provide concise information during the whole process. I was impressed with the presentation of the first day we met, it helped me take a good decision as it provided. Your availability, openness to keep update the client/customer is worth noting and keep it up! It was a pleasure having as a coach and would be delighted to doing again business with you and your company and/or recommend to other friends/relatives All the best, Christian

What a pleasure it was to have Bill Meyer as our Real Estate agent. The whole process was thorough, fun, and very professional. Bill's team was outstanding in assisting us with selling our home; especially the staging phase; exemplified by the fact that our home sold in only 7 days and above asking price. We would highly recommend Bill to anyone in the real estate market and look forward to dealing with him again in our next venture. Cheers, Jamie Hurlow

Bill Meyer did a great job for me in selling my house. He had the open houses, plenty of attractive advertisements in various spots and get me up to date with personal communication. The Tulip Team also impressed me with their weekly report on showings, communication with potential customers, and other information that showed me this is a hard working group of people who know what they are doing and how to get your house out to potential buyers. I would highly recommend Bill and his team to anyone thinking of putting their home on the market.

Bonjour à toute l'équipe, C'était un réel et profond plaisir de bénéficier de vos services si professionnels. Vous avez été constamment et à n'importe quelle heure (même tard les weekend) à notre écoute, toujours attentionnés, soucieux de nos préoccupations. Vous avez été des supports particuliers qui aviez su nous encourager au moment de notre premier échec d'acquisition dû aux documents administratifs exigés. Vous nous aviez encouragés à garder le moral au beau fixe. Nos démarches étaient les vôtres, vous poussiez d'ailleurs plus que nous pour que nous puissions avoir une propriété. Au four et au moulin, vous contactiez le broker financier et la banque pour vous enquérir de l'état d'avancement du dossier. Bref, sans votre équipe, nous croyons sans nous tromper que nous aurions abandonné la quête du Graal qu'est notre première maison au Canada. Professionnel, humain, chaleureux vous l'avez été avec nous et nous vous encourageons à le rester pour toujours. Ce sera avec joie que je recommanderai toute personne en quête de propriété à vos services. Merci, Merci et encore Merci. Salvator et Denise

We are so thankful to have had Keith Bray as our Real Estate Agent. To anyone that has a family I highly recommend choosing Keith as your agent as well. He was extremely helpful in every area and was extremely patient and was quick to respond and communicate. We couldn't imagine anyone better to help us on our journey of finding our first family home. We hope to work with you again in the future and will to quick to refer anyone we know to you as well with full confidence that you will give them the best experience. Thank you so much for everything!
Hi Sylvie, I wanted to take this moment before I get too far into packing up to say thank-you. I have worked with you and your team on 7 transactions over the past 20 years and I think this one was the most difficult. Throughout the process you remained positive and thankfully, tenacious during the negotiations while trying to get the best price you could for my home. I believe I still have a couple of moves in me in the future and I hope to find us working together again. Merci, and all the best, mon amie!

Bill, a big thank you. All we can say is positive in our dealings with you in selling home in such short order. It truly was a pleasure to have you as our agent & it would be our pleasure to recommend you to anyone who might be considering buying or selling there home. Again Thank you for all your assistance.

Our family would like to thank Sylvie and Bill and the rest of the team for all their help during our buying and selling process. This is the second time we have had the opportunity to deal with Sylvie and her team and once again, we were not disappointed. Not too many people can say that they sold their house on the first showing for the asking price. Sylvie helped this happen by providing us all the resources we needed to have the house ready and in shape to sell and by choosing a sale price that was spot-on with the market. She has amazing enthusiasm and knowing that we had limited time to complete the sale, she accommodated our time-constraints and put in a lot of effort towards getting our house “out there” and in the spotlight. She really has a wealth of knowledge and knows how to prepare a house for listing, including providing us with all the resources for staging it and recognizing what features to highlight in our home to get it ahead of others in the market. Bill is probably one of the most patient agents we have met. We were having a really hard time finding something we liked and even though we went back to see the same places multiple times, he never rushed us. We are very detail-oriented, picky clients and he was not only patient, but actually provided hands-on help when needed (e.g. measuring areas to visualize a room or helping us think of layouts to make a particular room work). He gave us great perspectives, pointing out the benefits and drawbacks of properties that we may not have realized. He was able to recognize what we needed in terms of layout, price, size and location. In the end, he helped us find the perfect place that we LOVE. Without his help, perseverance, patience and knowledge, we probably would have been stuck renting a place. Again, he knew we had very limited time and put in a lot of effort to accommodate our needs. We would not hesitate to recommend Sylvie, Bill and the rest of their team to anyone looking to sell, buy or both! They are very positive, genuine and trustworthy individuals with remarkable experience. Thank you for all your help!
