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.

Richard was my realtor when I purchased my condo back in 2012, I also used his services when I decided to purchase another condo as a rental property. I recently decided to sell both properties with Richard and was pleased with the listing prices he suggested. I thought the listing prices may be high but to my surprise we sold both properties quickly and at near listing price. One condo had 3 offers in 1 day and was sold after 5 days of listing it! Richard knows the market well and also negotiates for your interest in mind. He also works with a great photographer, which is key if you want visits. His suggestions were spot on and I found him to be very patient with my numerous questions and delays of deciding when to sell. I was also grateful that he was able to work with my tenants and organize everything without my presence, since I now live in Montreal. Highly recommended, he is a true pleasure to work with.

I have been a Real Estate Broker/Agent in the U.S. for over 25 years in three states and I know what it takes to obtain, retain and satisfy clients in a busy real estate market. I am moving back to Canada with my wife and from my first contact with Richard via email and phone, I found him to be personable, knowledgeable and thorough. We were in Ottawa for only a couple of days and Richard met with us in his office at a moment's notice, providing information and setting up appointments to view homes the next day. He is flexible and accommodating and was instrumental in finding exactly the kind of home we were looking for and within 12 hours, we viewed the property and wrote a contract on it. Richard went out of his way to make this happen for us, including showing us the home on a Sunday in a blizzard! We had to go back to the U.S. and he has taken care of everything he can in our absence and I have no doubt that he will continue to do whatever possible until and after closing. Unlike many realtors I have been in contact with, Richard was diligent in communicating with me, via phone, text or email to keep me apprised of what was happening with the purchase of our home. I would highly recommend Richard to list or buy your home!

We have hired Richard on 3 purchase transactions and 1 sale transaction over the past 16 years. In every transaction we found Richard knowledgeable, helpful, professional and realistic. Like us, Richard is also a real estate investor. As a result he understands the needs of both investors and home owners. In our most recent transaction we sold one of our rental properties through Richard. He brought recent comparable sales for the neighborhood to help us determine an asking price and provided input to explain 2 outliers. One that sold quickly for way over the historical selling price of any other property on that street and one other that was sitting on the market for quite a long time. He was also very helpful with listing and pricing strategies an advise on what work to put in to the house to get it ready for sale without spending too much. He was also helpful in recommending reliable contractors to get some of the work done. In the end we sold the house in 4 days after listing for over asking. We intend to hire Richard for future transactions and would highly recommend him to anyone and everyone who is looking to buy or sell for your principle residence or investment properties.

Richard was a fantastic agent. He worked tirelessly to ensure we had many potential buyers touring our home. He handled the sale of our home as well as the purchase of our new home professionally and accurately. We would use home again in a heartbeat.
