“I have known John Castellan as a real estate agent since July 2010, when he represented me in the purchase of my first home. Given my provided criteria, John found a perfect place, at a perfect price, and I could not have been happier with his friendly, approachable demeanour, and assertive business strategy.

John recently represented me again as a selling agent. From start to finish, John ensured that the entire procedure was stress-free, while maintaining a courteous, optimistic perspective. He was patient and available to answer any questions, and enthusiastically provided reports outlining showing feedback and activity about the listing. His thorough knowledgeability concerning the Ottawa real estate market inspired a profound sense of trust and confidence in me as a client. Without doubt, John is the most competent agent I have ever dealt with; despite what was considered a ‘soft market’, the property was listed and sold within 16 days, at an extremely competitive price.

John is the epitome of class and professionalism. He is an exceptional real estate agent, and exceeded every expectation I had with regards to communication, expertise, and proficiency.

It is without hesitation that I strongly recommend John Castellan as an agent for buying and selling in the Ottawa region.

“Hello John,

I would like to THANK YOU for the exceptional service that you provided in helping me with the purchase of my new home. In particular, I immensely appreciate your patience, guidance, and good counsel that you provided me as I navigated the condo market of downtown Ottawa. Every single action that you took was timely, and performed with an appropriate combination of a high-degree of professionalism and friendliness. I was truly impressed with your wealth of knowledge of the condo market in downtown Ottawa, as well as the psychology of sellers which is current and profound. I have no doubt that all of this was collectively instrumental in helping me with the purchase of my new home, and within my criteria.

I will certainly count on you if I ever need to make changes to my current status associated with my new home.

Best wishes for continued success, and I am sure I will see you in the neighbourhood!

“Hi John,

Thanks so much for your help with that purchase. Your expertise of the market and purchasing procedures have allowed me to find the perfect place and get a very early closing date in so little time! I will certainly recommend your services to friends and family looking to buy or sell a property.

I’m going to sign the papers tomorrow at 4pm for the sale and purchase of the properties. Everything is sorted out !
