Richard was fantastic. He came into a situation with first-time home-buyers who, in the current market, were having a fair amount of trouble purchasing our first home. He is very knowledgeable on properties, and was able to provide advice on whether a house would need a lot of work, on negotiation tactics with the seller, etc. We really felt like he was working for us - and trying to get us the best possible home. He was very honest, but in some cases was fairly blunt and we found it a little discouraging. Sometimes, his very honest opinion was that even if we placed an offer, we had a "snowball's chance in hell" of making the purchase (ouch!). However, I will stress that if you want a knowledgeable, honest agent who will always answer your emails in a timely manner (of which I sent plenty), this is your guy. In the end, he convinced us to see a house we had initially looked over, and we ended up purchasing it - and while remaining within our budget! Even after the purchase, he still answered my emails and random questions, and I feel that he brought us through the process in a very clear and direct manner - especially great when, as first-timers, we really had no clue what we were getting into.

We started our journey with Richard back in November 2018 and finished in September 2019. He came highly recommended from a friend. Ever since the first moment we got in touch with him he has been highly responsive. We've had the best experience working with him as he is very knowledgeable about homes, price of upgrades, location, resale,if the home is in good condition or not, etc... We were picky throughout the entire process but Richard kept it cool an s feel as though we were a bother. When we sell we will be using Richard's services again and we will be recommending him to everyone.

My partner and I had the pleasure and good fortune of working with Richard Pearce of Guidestar Realty on our recent home purchase. While the home buying process can be a stressful and daunting venture, Richard guided us through the journey rather effortlessly by identifying listings of properties that suited our needs. His professionalism, knowledge of home construction, easy going personality and focus on client care is second to none. He was well prepared, organized and patient during showings, which was greatly appreciated. Most importantly, he went to bat for us by ensuring that critical details were addressed with the sellers upon closing. I highly recommend Richard for your buying and selling needs.

As a member of the Canadian Armed Forces, I face lots of uncertainty when comes the time to pack up and move. This time around, I was set on buying my first home in Ottawa and started talking to Richard about 2 years prior to my posting. At that time, not knowing when (or even IF) this move was actually going to happen, Richard was always there to answer my questions VIA email whenever I gas something to ask (and boy did I ever have a lot of questions!). Not once did he make me feel like I was a lesser client or that I was wasting his time. He always acted professionally and was immensely knowledgeable. It was a huge relief to know that he could take away a good chunk of the uncertainty I was feeling. Once my move was set in stone, I set out to search for homes, only giving Richard a couple of days of notice after "teasing" him for 2 years! He was up for the challenge and lined up all the homes we hoped to see. We made an offer that weekend and Richard help guide us through the negotiations and purchasing agreement from A to Z. All in all, I'm very happy to have worked with Richard and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home, military or not.
