My success is measured by results, the most important being how my clients feel about their experience in this process. I listen to and learn from my clients; a fact reflected in the client reviews below.
My wife and I were very pleased with our recent purchase of our cottage. The areas that I found most helpful and you are not always aware as a buyer what is required include your help as a real estate agent in getting the conditions fulfilled.
Everything from home inspection recommendations, water testing and inspection of the home was very much appreciated as you Neil assisted and made easier the process. The offer process was simple with your assistance and we even met the vendors which was very helpful.
Neil you were up front on all issues and our purchase was made easier because of your expertise and friendly personality.
We took a somewhat unusual approach in selecting someone to sell our home in Greely. We prepared a series of questions and assigned a value to each answer and sent the questionnaire to six different agents. Through this process we selected Monique as the most qualified agent for our requirement. What a great decision!
Monique arranged for a stager and after we had completed “staging” we went to Florida for the winter with the understanding that we would put the house on the market in early March, a month before our return.
After listing, Monique worked very professionally to advertise and show our home. When we had an offer that was at risk of falling through, with the buyer walking away, Monique, through extra effort on her part, revived the offer and ensured successful closure. Thanks to her we were able to sell our home in a short time period.
We were extremely pleased with Monique and her friendly, professional approach and highly recommend her for anyone buying or selling their home. ~ Thank you.
Last summer I was buying a house in the Greely-Metcalfe area. I enlisted the services of Monique Vandewint as this was my first time purchasing a home. Monique was very pleasant and professional to work with, and helped me find several potential homes with all the features I wanted that were also within my price range.
Monique was always very responsive to my needs, and scheduled home visits to suit my schedule. Monique was invaluable while viewing homes - she used her vast experience to point out items of interest that I might have missed on my own.
Overall, working with Monique demystified the entire process for me, and I have ended up with a house that feels like a home. I would highly recommend Monique to any prospective buyers!
I was pleased to have Neil handle the sale of our family home on Foley Mtn. last summer. The house is unique, so the property needed to be presented in a special way. He was able to attract interest in the house when the local real estate market was slow.
We appreciated his personal attention and his interest in the property. Our experience was very positive and I would not hesitate to recommend Neil's services to anyone looking to list their property in the Rideau Lakes area.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Monique Vandewint for the professional manner she demonstrated in the sale and purchase of my homes.
Monique is a very knowledgeable, kind and caring agent who goes that extra mile for her clients. Monique's attention to detail makes the seller or buyer feel instantly at ease knowing that she has your best interests at heart.
When I settled on the home I wanted to purchase she worked hard to close the deal quickly for me. My experience working with Monique was like working with a loving family friend who only wants the best for you.
Without hesitation I will recommend Monique Vandewint to friends and family when they are looking to purchase or sell their homes.
My real estate experience with you, Neil, was an exceptionally positive one. Your professionalism, effort, humour, ability to get the job done stand out in my mind. Neil, you sold my island property while dozens on the lake remain unsold to date.
You simply could not improve in any way except perhaps to stop by this summer and have a beer on the veranda. I ABSOLUTELY recommend you to anyone even thinking about selling. You are simply just the best.
During our home buying experience, Monique was always there to make sure everything was in order and that we had everything done and ready to go at the right time. It was nice to know that if I ever needed anything done promptly that I could just call her up and it would be done
in a matter of minutes. She was very patient with our objectives and never let us go through with something that she felt wasn’t right for us.
Without her organization and personal opinion I feel we wouldn’t be getting ready to move into our first home. Thank you so much Monique!
My experience with the sale of the log house with timber frame addition was very good, and I knew that selling this rural property might be challenging as it needed some work. Your extensive local knowledge and experience, plus friendly willingness to work with and for me and keeping me informed and updated was particularly helpful as I am no longer resident in the area.
I always felt your responses to questions about process etc were useful, open and honest. Your efforts with potential buyers and the ability to help me understand and work through the actual process of completing the paperwork, (at a distance and while we were traveling), at the required times and with the necessary promptness, are key attributes of an effective real estate agent.
All these things saved me a great deal of time, energy, travel and worry and I am quite sure made the difference between selling and not selling the house in a timely fashion. The buyers are still there and love the place. Yes, I would definitely recommend your services to others considering buying or selling a home.
We have two daughters who have used Monique's services. Since they were first time buyers, Monique took the time to explain the many details involved in purchasing a home.
At no time, did our daughters feel rushed to make a decision. In fact, Monique advised them not to buy homes that they liked; she found flaws that we, as a family, did not notice.
In the event that either or both of them decide to sell and purchase another home in Ottawa, Monique will be their representative. They have told us that they would recommend her highly to their family and friends. As parents who have seen how Monique works, we would also strongly recommend her as a true professional.
From the moment we met you we found you easy to talk to, personable and above all honest in all your dealings with us. You got our house to market quickly and brought showings right away. Your photos were well done and the house was advertised widely.
We were impressed with your knowledge of the area and we felt this was an advantage that would benefit us.
I used the services of Monique to sell my house and to purchase a house. Throughout the whole process, Monique was extremely professional and demonstrated a thorough knowledge of the real estate business. I found that she did an excellent job in pricing my house to sell. However, I was particularly impressed with how Monique ensured that my interests were well protected when purchasing a home.
I would recommend Monique anytime and will definitely seek out her excellent services again when it comes time to sell and purchase a home.
After 4 other realtors and 6 years of listing, you sold my property.
The reason being you put your whole effort into what you do. I found you to be easy to talk to and felt your honesty in all dealings.
I would not hesitate to recommend Monique Vandewint to friends and family when looking to purchase or sell their homes. Being a first-time home buyer I had many questions and concerns regarding the purchasing process and procedures.
Monique was very patient and open to all our questions. She took the time to explain the buying process to us and made us feel very comfortable in our purchase. I'm happy to say that after many visits to homes in and around the Ottawa area we were able to find our perfect home thanks to all Monique's efforts.
I would love to comment on the exceptional service that we received with you through the purchase of our home in Canada. We feel that you went above and beyond what a realtor usually does. You are very friendly, knowledgeable of the properties and surrounding areas, and were very quick to respond to any questions that we had.
You referred us to the inspection company, home owners insurance company, and even the attorney's office that handled our closing. We would definitely recommend you and your company to others that are looking to sell or buy a home. With your wealth of knowledge and years of experience I wouldn't change a thing except to just continue to excel in your profession.
In todays world there are not too many people that you come across that go the extra mile and we feel you did. We not only consider you our realtor but our friend as well!
I was referred to Monique from friends who had sold and bought a house through her. Yes, I was very impressed with the professional way in which Monique found the perfect home for me, many months of searching and looking! Combined with her referrals and booking house inspections, Hello Robin!, found for me the ideal house in the area that I had wanted to be located in. I would not hesitate to recommend Monique to my friends when they are looking to sell or buy a home.
I can’t thank Monique enough for all that she has done for me. Many thanks Monique (given with pleasure to reflect the great services you have provided)
We were able to sell our 8 year old, custom timber frame home through the persistent efforts of our realtor, Mr. Neil Scott. This was a high end home, located on a private 3 acre island, so we knew from day one that we needed someone who had the skills, resources and positive attitude to teach the niche market of potential buyers for our home.
Neil called in a professional photographer to create a fantastic color brochure that caught all the beauty of our home and property. He then generated a sales listing that hit both local, as well as the major metropolitan areas, and even some special online locations that targeted world class vacation homes. Neil was always ready and able to get potential buyers to our home, and the fact that we were located on an island never deterred him.
We never wavered in our confidence that we had the right man for the job, and in the end, Neil was able to find buyers and broker very favorable terms for us. We have spent over 40 years in the real estate business and found that Neil Scott was about as good a realtor as there is. He gets the job done.
When we decided to move from Cornwall to Greely, we chose Monique Vanderwint because of the wide range of homes she has sold in the area, in addition to the fact that she has lived in the surrounding area for quite some time. Not knowing the area, we wanted someone like Monique who was familiar with the Greely housing market and its amenities to represent us in buying our new home.
Monique did not let us down. Her professionalism combined with a friendly, courteous, and patient personality allows her to gain her client's trust. Her knowledge in building materials and construction quality sets her apart from the rest - knowledge that cannot be attained in general real estate courses.
We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking at buying or selling a home in the future. Thanks again Monique!
We were recommended to Monique through friends and once we listed we understood why , her dedication and professionalism was outstanding. I would not hesitate to pass along her name to anyone looking to sell or buy real estate.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Monique Vandewint for going above and beyond the call of duty with respect to the assistance she gave us in purchasing our new home in Winchester, Ontario. In July, I was relocated from Nunavut to Ottawa and Monique assisted us with our search for a home that would fit our every need. She accommodated our busy and unusual schedule and demonstrated advanced knowledge of the market and an incredible amount of patience and dedication to her work. When we finally settled on our current location, she worked hard to close the deal quickly and with our wishes in mind.
My husband and I both found her a real delight to deal with which is evident in the fact that we now consider her to be a trusted friend. I would recommend Monique to my friends and neighbours for all their real estate needs in a heartbeat. Thanks Monique!
Monique Vandewint listed our home in Sunset Lakes and was successful in negotiating the sale within two days. In addition to achieving a successful result, in all of her dealings we found that Monique was prompt, professional and thorough.
The market value assessment of comparable listings in the area was very complete and gave us an accurate understanding of competitive listings. Her suggestions to us for preparing the home for sale were excellent.
Monique responded to our requests promptly, including the difficult task of negotiating an additional deposit. We have no hesitation in recommending her services.
We would highly recommend Monique when buying or selling your home. Her highly professional approach and attention to every detail, no matter how small, is very evident in her approach.
Exceptional, family centered customer service is clearly something that Monique values and does well.
When it was time for us to sell our home we decided to go with Monique Vandewint. We had considered selling our home for sometime as we reluctantly needed to downsize. During a period of time we had had the opportunity to observe Monique at a few open houses and got to meet some of the other agents in the area. When we found a house that we were interested in there was no question, we wanted to list with Monique. Why?
Monique is professional, knowledgeable and caring. She provided us with quality service and always took the time to ensure that our particular needs were addressed. Monique provided us with advice when requested yet she always let us make our own decisions. She was never pushy but at the same time was no pushover. One thing we particularly appreciated was that once we signed with Monique, we got the services of Monique, rather than pawning us off on an associate like so many other agents. With Monique her clients really matter.
Thanks to Monique’s efforts we were able to sell our house in a reasonable timeframe and for a reasonable price and get the house that we were interested in.
We really recommend Monique.
