I cannot recommend Richard Pearce enough for any of your real estate needs and transactions. I first met Richard in 2008 when we were buying our first property in the Ottawa Area. In addition, in 2019, he helped sell that property, and also buy a new home even further in the countryside.
Not being from this area, and residing overseas at the time, Richard would pick us up and show us the properties we were interested in from the list we generated the evening before. He explained the houses and also introduced us to the various areas of Ottawa. We quickly learned that we belong in Ottawa West.
It became very apparent to me that we were quite lucky to have Richard represent us on that initial property in 2008. He is a genuine, caring, and knowledgeable partner that goes above and beyond to help you find/sell your home. When we were looking, he was not pressuring for us to buy - he was actually pointing out the problems he noticed with the home and what the potential costs might be to fix those deficiencies. I noticed other realtors when we visiting houses and most did not do this. Richard's background with the construction of houses really helped in identifying problems - and he wants to share this knowledge to 'help' and 'educate' - not just have you buy. He ultimately realizes that this is a 'home' - not just a property or house, and he fully gets the importance of that.
He is a rare breed, who definitely puts his clients' needs first, and has since become a friend from that initial chance meeting in 2008. You can't go wrong if you need a reliable and professional real estate partner in buying or selling your home.
