Recent: Orleans Woods, Ottawa
Greg Hamre was our realtor on the purchase of what ended up being our "forever" home in the East end of Ottawa. We started our home search during the pandemic and in a highly competitive market, an environment that could have been overwhelming at times. However, Greg's professionalism, experience, candor, and his overall friendly and approachable nature got us through a very challenging experience. I have personally worked with two other realtor's in the past to buy/sell homes, and Greg was by far the best.
Greg not only helped us find the right home for us in the end, he also impressed us with his knowledge of the local market and various Ottawa neighbourhoods as we were looking quite broadly across the city. Greg has an excellent gut instinct about Ottawa's market, and also surprised us with how well he could read our reactions to the homes we saw. He also flagged houses for us that were outside our core search areas that seemed to meet all of our criteria, which was helpful.
In terms of communication, Greg was easy to contact and prompt to respond at all times.
Finally, Greg's negotiation skills are top notch. We would not have won our home without his expertise on this front. His ability to negotiate and figure out what the seller would want from a bid in order for us to win the house in such a highly competitive market was critical to securing our forever home. We also feel like in the end, we paid a fair price for the house and did not overbid.
I would highly recommend Greg Hamre for any real estate transaction in Ottawa, and I would use him again in the future.
Thank you, Greg!
