We would like to thank John for his professionalism during the recent sale of our condo. From the initial consultation right on through to the successful sale of the condo, John was extremely courteous, organized, prompt, knowledgeable and savvy. The result was that our condo conditionally sold within a week of listing at more than 97% of our initial asking price. John made the whole process painless. We would whole-heartedly recommend John without hesitation or reservation.

We gave John some guidelines when we were looking for a downsizing condo and a change in our living style. “Buck” didn’t waste our time with uninteresting properties. He either personally showed us appropriate properties or directed us to his website. In short order we found our new home. John was diligent and professional in taking care of the details and went out of his way to accommodate our available time.

Thank you John Newman for jumping on board and helping me find my first home. I took you all over the city and beyond. Your patience and determination got me exactly what I was looking for. I couldn’t have asked for a better real estate agent – you care about your clients and want the best for them. Thank you so very much!

My wife and I would like to thank Mr. John Newman, Sales Representative at Keller Williams Realty for recently selling our home. Mr. Newman first impressed us with his sales record, I don’t know of any other real estate agent who has sold every home they have listed with most of his recent sales selling for more than 98% of the listed price. Although I have bought and sold many homes over the years, I have never dealt with an agent that provided such a comprehensive service including a professional stager, photographer, designer and printer. When we first met the stager we were somewhat skeptical of the value she might bring, however, she pointed out things we never would have noticed and offered advice that truly made a difference. The day after we implemented all of the suggestions offered by the stager, Mr. Newman arranged for a professional photographer to take pictures of our home. The photographer did a superb job and the house showed extremely well. Things happened very quickly once the house was photographed. Specifically, within a day or two of the photographer completing the photo shoot, Mr. Newman paid for the design and production of professional/full colour brochures featuring our home, posted our listing on the web and placed a sign on the lawn. He immediately arranged for several Open Houses and provided us with feedback on each visitor to our home. Mr. Newman followed up with each perspective buyer and provided us with feedback and suggestions every step of the way. We were extremely pleased when Mr. Newman presented us with a full price offer with the closing date we had requested. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Newman to family, friends, colleagues and individuals looking for an experienced and highly professional Real Estate Agent that truly is a cut above the rest.

My husband and I recently purchased a condominium. John Newman acted as our agent and we were extremely pleased with the service he provided us. He was knowledgeable and conscientious and responded to any requests promptly and efficiently. We would not hesitate to recommend John to anyone purchasing or selling a home.

We would like to thank John for his expertise during the recent sale of our house. From the early consultation right on through to the successful sale of our house, John was enormously courteous, organized, prompt, well-informed and understanding. The outcome was that our house conditionally sold within 2 weeks of listing at more than 97% of our initial asking price. John made the whole process effortless for us as we were vacationing in Florida. We would unequivocally recommend John without hesitancy or reservation.

We hired John to sell my mother’s condo after she decided to move into a retirement residence. John was professional and friendly throughout the process, and made the whole experience stress-free for all of us. John was always available, addressed our questions and concerns promptly, and kept us updated on feedback from potential buyers. In the end, his experience and advice were key factors in sealing the deal. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home. Thanks, John, for making it happen!

“We had the opportunity to have John Newman assist us in purchasing our first home. When we weren’t exactly sure what we wanted in a house, John was able to help us narrow it down and determine what was best for us. Because we didn’t have a specific location in mind, John gladly traveled to various locations in and out of the city to meet our needs. He was very knowledgeable and didn’t hesitate to give us his valued opinions. We would highly recommend John as a real estate agent to anyone interested in purchasing a home.”

— Hollie and Jon Mahusky

We would like to thank John for all his hard work and effort in helping us sell two homes and to purchase our dream home on the water! John’s professionalism and attention to detail were key in helping us through all the transactions and associated inspections and other related activities. John’s in-depth knowledge and experience were obvious right from the get go – from the listings (and showings), through negotiations and finally with the closings and subsequent follow-up. Well done and many, many thanks!

— Roy & Darlene, Ottawa

While looking to purchase a home, I had the privilege to be under the guidance of John Newman as a knowledgeable and trustworthy realtor. During the process, I felt at ease with John. He patiently took the time to review several properties within my budget and gave me his objective opinion on each. His professional approach yet very relaxed disposition clearly provided me with a clear sense that he had my best interest in mind. In the end, I was very happy with John’s service and I would recommend him to anyone who is either selling or purchasing a home.

— Rocco Romeo, Ottawa, ON

This is the second time that we have worked with John on the sale of a property. In both cases, John provided us with outstanding advice and service. He made sure that our interests were protected and that we were completely comfortable with the entire process. His honesty and no-nonsense approach to the business were both reassuring and refreshing. There is no doubt that we would welcome the opportunity to work with John in the future.

— Anne and Bill, Ottawa

We would like to thank John for all his help in selling our house. When we listed with another agent we had no viewings but once John took over we had over 30 culminating in the sell. John worked hard for us getting our home advertised in several real estate papers as well as setting up a web site so we could have people from across Canada see it. He also held open houses whenever we requested them. He was always available to answer any questions we had. Thanks again for you dedication and hard work John.

My sister recommended John Newman to us as our realtor. John is the type of person that listened very carefully to our needs and he went out of his way to make sure he met them all. John is a walking book of knowledge and resources. His years of experience allowed him to zero-in on exactly what we were looking for and John delivered what he had promised – a new home that my husband and I love and can enjoy for the rest of our lives. Thank you so much for all your patience and your guidance. It was a real pleasure doing business with you.

— Des and Johanne, Ottawa ON

John was asked to sell my elderly father’s condo after he decided to move into a retirement residence. We found John to be friendly and pleasant in all our dealings with him. John not only suggested the selling price but also recommended that the condo be staged so as to make it more appealing to potential buyers.  John was persistent in holding multiple open houses and chasing down potential buyers. We were pleased in how he kept us updated on any feedback he received from both realtors and/or potential buyers. John provided suggestions and guidance when offers were received. When an acceptable offer was received, John took care of all the necessary details, relieving us of the much of the worry and stress usually associated with selling a property. In all our dealings with John, we found him to be both courteous and professional at all times. Finally, my father was satisfied with the final offer received and was grateful to John for his handling of the sale. Both my father and I do not hesitate in recommending John to any future clients.

As first time sellers of a dated condominium, John Newman gave us sound and reasonable suggestions for improvement. He listened attentively and delivered quickly on his promises. He consistently provided timely and valuable advice and feedback on all aspects of the endeavour while working relentlessly to meet our deadlines. As a result, the entire experience was worry and stress free and the condominium sold quickly. We highly recommend John to any prospective buyer or seller. Sincere thanks John.
