“Lamoine and Garett,

It has been a pleasure having you both assist us in the challenging process of selling our home. Your attention to detail and knowledge of the market resulted in a timely sale at a price that was higher than expected. At no point in time did we feel out of the loop as you were regularly providing feedback and updates. It felt more like dealing with friends who were glad to help or answer our questions.

As a military member I have sold homes with large real estate offices before, and I never knew who would be showing my open house, answering the phone, and often I would go extended periods without getting a satisfactory response to my inquiries.

Thank you so much for all the hard work you both did, and I would highly recommend your services to anyone who needs it!”

Sincerely,

Chris Smith (2017)

“Once my decision to sell my home and move was made I contacted Lamoine without hesitation, she was there for me when I purchased 5 years ago and service was amazing then.  The professionalism and caring that Lamoine provides is exceptional.  Home sold in 2 weeks and over asking price…..could not be happier!  On to another chapter………….thanks Lamoine!!”

-Penny Van Dusen (2017)

“We had a great experience working with Lamoine.  She is highly knowledgeable, answered every question and request promptly.  Patient and very generous with her time.   Without her guidance the process of buying and selling a home would have been a lot more stressful.”

-Naomi & Jessee (2017)

“I can not thank enough Lamoine and Garett for their professionalism, their advice and their support. I had been wanting to sell my house for years but it always felt like a daunting task.

Well, Lamoine and Garett made it happen. Planning, painting, cleaning, repairing, sorting, shopping, staging and photography… We did all that in about two weeks and the house sold in less than a week at a price that exceeded my expectations. More over,  the negotiation and sale process was seamless and professional.
From the start, I felt I could completely trust my realtors. They were honest with me, told me exactly what was required to sell my home for a fair price and invested a lot of themselves in this process. They even made sure my little dog Taco was comfortable and happy when repairs were done in the house while I was at work.
Lamoine and Garett are an amazing team. I could not imagine having sold my home with anyone else. I can now move forward with my life and embrace the future. Thank you Lamoine and Garett.”

“It was a pleasure meeting Lamoine and Garett. For what may be stressful for many others relocating from Edmonton to Ottawa, they made a stress free environment for myself. The pair were very friendly and informative throughout my 7 day house hunting trip. From the moment I contacted them I was receiving properties to view virtually, that fit my criteria. They provided a reputable lawyer and home inspector for one less thing for me to worry about. They devoted the entire week ensuring I found the home I was looking for and at the right price, although it only took 4 days from viewings to home inspection. They are a very motivated pair that went above and beyond my expectations. Excellent negotiating skills were demonstrated when it came time to place the offer, needless to say I got the home I wanted, the conditions I needed for the price I wanted with a closing date two months earlier than the sellers were seeking, which accommodated a door to door move for myself. I will be using them for my next sale and purchase and will recommend them to anyone making the move to or from the Ottawa area.”

– Corey Moore

“I first met Lamoine’s following a referral from the realtor who was listing my rural property. The selling process with my country realtor was completely exhausting. While he was an excellent realtor, selling a century stone house in the country isn’t an easy task and took over eight months. The process left me utterly drained. Upon acceptance of an offer on my property, I had six weeks to pack, find a new home and move to Ottawa. The first time I spoke with Lamoine by phone, we discussed the style, price and location of properties I was looking for. She followed up instantly and provided a multitude of potential listings. She was always open to any alternate suggestions I had but was so knowledgeable about the Ottawa housing market and was able to identify the potential pitfalls in some of the other properties I had personally selected. We did however look at a mix of what I had found on my own and those she had suggested.

When we met for the first outing to look at properties, we had a list of eight homes on the first day out. This was narrowed to a choice of three the following day. With her guidance, I finally made the final selection on the third day. Yes…………the entire visiting process lasted three consecutive days. An offer was made and was accepted several days later as a consequence of Lamoine’s superb negotiation skills. Following the home inspection, which was essentially uneventful, other than a minor observation, Lamoine was still able to negotiate a slightly lower price. A thousand dollars may seem trivial in the context of purchasing a home worth several hundred thousand dollars but Lamoine never lost sight of the bottom line.

A day or two following the home inspection, I began to start feeling the effects of the anxiety in whether the property I’d selected was right for me. I recall calling Lamoine one early Saturday morning asking whether we could look at other possibilities. Without a moment’s hesitation, she had three other possibilities lined up. This after spending three solid days looking with me and after negotiation what we thought was a final offer. Never once did she show any sign of frustration or impatience. She was a consummate professional who truly seemed to have the interests of her client at heart. Following this momentary indecision, I determined that the first choice I made was the best option.

During the legal process in obtaining all the required documentation for the lawyers managing the transaction, Lamoine was constantly one step ahead of everyone and assured that all the required documentation and information required to achieve the closing date were in place. The transaction went off without a hitch. No surprises, no regrets or any misgivings whatsoever.

I would recommend Lamoine wholeheartedly to anyone considering a home purchase in Ottawa. While she has not managed a sale of a property for me, she would be my first choice in a heartbeat.”

– Scott Armour

“As newcomers to the country, we were very lucky to have had Lamoine recommended to us.  She has been exceptionally professional, warmly welcoming and fantastically helpful in our search for a new home.   Always ready to help with a smile,her eye for detail and tireless patience helped us understand the pros and cons of every property and we quickly learned to trust her experience.  She took the time to get to understand what was important to us and so was able to expand our search to include properties which we would otherwise have overlooked.  Without her guidance we would never have found such a fantastic home, or negotiated such a great price.  It was very reassuring to have Lamoine on our side, steering us through the potential pitfalls and ultimately making the purchase of a home simple and straightforward.   We would not of wanted to go through the process with anyone else.”

– Jon & Sonia

“From the moment we met Lamoine we were excited to have her involved in the sale of our home.  From the home staging, to the care she took in listening to our needs, to her expansive knowledge of Ottawa neighbourhoods and the homes themselves, our experience was fantastic.  We sold our home 2 days after listing, and above asking (while several other homes in our neighbourhood are still on the market!)  In addition, we have an 8month old at home, so we rally appreciated how quickly everything happened.  She took into consideration everything we were looking for, offered expert advice and helped us purchase our new home within a week.  Lamoine was made for real estate and we are so grateful to her for all her dedication to our family and our move.”

– Jessica and Jason

“We would be happy to give Lamoine McCune our highest recommendation for her services, to anyone desiring to sell or buy a home.  She is very professional and knowledgable about the sale of our home. She clearly takes pride in doing a superior job.  She knows our market here extremely well and is diligent, responsive and yet very patient.  Thank you Lamoine, You are the brightness in the world and we are glad to know you!”

– Iris & Fay

“I was extremely happy with the service Lamoine provided in the purchase of my new home. I found her to be extremely knowledgeable about the area, and the entire home buying process.  She dispensed good advice, and worked tirelessly on my behalf, available seemingly at any hour to answer questions and arrange viewings.  My home purchase went off without a hitch, in no small part because of the assistance of Lamoine.  I would not hesitate to retain her services again.”

– Greg

“I simply would not recommend anyone else – Lamoine is fantastic – she became a trusted partner in the process of finding my family and I our forever home in Kanata.  She brings a wealth of experience and more importantly wisdom to home viewings, issues,contorting and the small yet important details like how long a drive we could cope with.  No question was too inconsequential or silly for her to answer; especially from a UK.family that was completely new to buying property in Ottawa.  She was available 24/7 and gave 110% to make sure we found an affordable dream home.”

– James Reid

“This was our first time selling a house and Lamoine made the process easy.  Her professionalism and good advice impressed us.  With her guidance and support we were able to focus where it counts and get the house really for the market. She was always positive, encouraging, and available during the whole process, from start to finish.  She’s a team player and together we succeeded.  We loved working with Lamoine! We got an offer and sold the house in two days.  What more can we say?  99.5% of asking price.”

– Charles & Marie Claude

“From the initial interview to developing a successful pricing, and marketing strategy that closed the sale in less than two weeks, it is clear that Lamoine knows her business.   Her advice in preparing for “List Day”, and her direct involvement to help  get it done were invaluable. Her confidence, and light-hearted attitude was much appreciated.   Lamoine took care of all the staging requirements as I had very little furniture.  I would unreservedly recommend Lamoine to family, friends and colleagues.”

– Mike M

“After many months of unsuccessfully attempting to sell our own home, we became both extremely anxious and totally discouraged.   We were pleased when our lawyer recommended that we interview Lamoine to sell our home for us.   Lamoine’s professional presentation to us left no doubt that we had found the proper agent to vend our property.  From the outset, Lamoine took charge. We were informed each step of the way from preparation of the high end promotional material to the overall marketing strategy and beyond.  In constant contact with us, Lamoine kept us abreast of the real estate competition in the area, made tactical suggestions for our approval when necessary and ensured we had accurate feedback after each showing.  Lamoine served our needs successfully and in a most professional fashion.  Lamoine proved to be totally honest with a cheerful and positive attitude and most importantly exuded a calming influence over any potentially anxious moments.  We know that Lamoine could help anyone sell their property.   We recommend her highly to you because she can and will do it if you ask her.”

With thanks,

– Buck and Heather Arnold

“Thanks for everything Lamoine.   We were again very impressed with all the details/advice you put forth to get us SOLD once more in record time.   We will have you over to see the twins in the fall!”

– Roberto and Lori

“Lamoine is a consummate professional.  From our first encounter to the final close of a sale, she provided thoughtful and timely guidance, a continuous open line of communication, and exceptionally high quality work delivered at a pace that can only be described as remarkable.  I believe the speed of our successful outcome is a direct reflection of Lamoine’s skill and experience, and would gladly trust my future real-estate transactions with her on my team.”

– John S

“We had the pleasure of working with Lamoine for both looking for a home and selling our old home and in both tasks she was terrific.  When we were looking she was patient, listened well and was very knowledgable in helping us find the home right for our young family.  For selling, her genuine flair for what was needed to stage the home, the great multimedia package she put together on the internet, and her networking and wonderful people skills all combined to help sell our home in just 5 days as the list price in the tricky spring season.  Highly Recommend!”

– James & Melissa

“We met Lamoine at one of her open houses and were immediately impressed.  She was very personable and always available to answer any questions.  One of the things that we liked most about her was that she never pressured us into making any decisions that we weren’t comfortable with.  Buying a home can be a very stressful process but having Lamoine there really alleviated that for us.   She was there with us through the whole process and gave us lots of great advice.  It is clear to see that she truly loves her job and that is why she is so great at what she does.  We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to family and friends.”  Thank you Lamoine

– Kelly & George

“Selling our home with Lamoine was such a pleasant experience.  Having been listed with another realtor for 90 days without a sale, we were thinking our home would never sell.  Lamoine treated us like her top priority.  She was always available either by phone, text, email or in person.  She listened to all our questions and had all kinds of great advice.  Her knowledge, passion and enthusiasm got us our offer.   And when it came to negotiating, the options were clearly explained, making the best path easy to choose.   Lamoine will be our first choice on all our future real estate transactions!”

– Steve and Teri

“Home is where the Army send you!  Lamoine got in touch with us right away to find out what part of Ottawa we were looking to live and what our wish and must have list was.   When we came on our week long house hunting trip Lamoine was totally devoted to us, was aware of our timeline, had everything ready and was willing to show us as many homes as we wanted.  When we found our home Lamoine guided us to get the necessary inspections and things completed.  During our week long trip Lamoine was with us every step of the way and we sure felt we have made a friend who we surely will recommend to anyone making a military move.”
