Keith G. Military Relocation from Pembroke

Chris Scott is a fabulous realtor who knows the Ottawa market very well. As a military member, we have asked Chris to help us with three separate houses, all with excellent results. We will no doubt use Chris again if we sell.

Heather and Alex

 

The Ottawa housing market is ridiculous right now. Add the extra pressure of finding a house in one week during a house-hunting trip and it’s insane! Luckily the Chris Scott team (Chris, Stephanie, and Colin) are all up to date informed, knowledgeable, honest, and hard-working. They took a very stressful week and made it a positive experience. Highly recommended as it is an absolute pleasure to work with all of them!

Heather and Byron, Military Relocation from Nova Scotia

As a military family relocating to Ottawa, we couldn’t have asked for a better agent. Chris’s knowledge of the whole posting process was truly invaluable. Right from the initial contact I knew we were in good hands. Chris took the time to really get to know us and continually catered our online search to our changing situation. He always responded to our questions quickly and thoroughly. His knowledge of Ottawa, from Orleans to Stittsville, was very helpful in narrowing our search. When we arrived in Ottawa for our House Hunting Trip, he made us feel like we were his number one priority. He had a substantial list of properties for us to view, even in this tight market. He and his staff made themselves available at all hours, which is very important on a time-crunched house hunting trip. Chris even had a home inspector lined up for the fourth day of our search (military families would appreciate the convenience of this). Chris’s insights into the current state of the market helped guide our offers and, after being outbid on our first attempt, we made a successful offer on a beautiful home in Stittsville. Fast-forward to the moving preparation phase, where you are provided with a personalized profile on a “moving concierge” service, which was super helpful in keeping track of all the administrative details that can sometimes get overlooked in a move (setting up utilities, changing addresses, etc). Even now, after a few weeks in our new house, we still feel comfortable contacting Chris with any questions – from where the best pizza place is to who he recommends to fix our brick. This was our fourth? fifth? military move, and Chris really proved himself an expert. Chris is hands down the best realtor we have worked with and we will without hesitation be recommending him to all of our friends, especially those in the military.

J. Baker, Military Relocation from Kingston

I received excellent service of Colin Raines and his team from start to finish. Very timely and responsive to all my queries and requests. Highly recommended!

H. Tong, Military Relocation Client

This is the fifth time I’ve sold/purchase with Chris Scott. His knowledge of the market is phenomenal and always up-to-date. The resources he has to accompany your needs are more than adequate and relevant. He’s a truly understanding individual, he’s always had my family’s best interest at heart and adapts to any situation easily. I would recommend Chris to my family and friends without a doubt.

C. Morin, 5 Time Military Relocation Client

Had a great military relocation experience with Chris Scott and his team. As first time home buyers doing our first relocation, my husband and I were thrilled with the level of service provided. Chris was really attentive and responsive, provided really honest feedback about houses, neighbourhoods and resell potential, and has a really calming attitude that put me at ease through a process that can be stressful. We had a really great outcome, purchased a house under listing price and for less than we had budgeted, all with great guidance from Chris. Would definitely recommend him and his team for any CF relocation.

A. Morden, Military Relocation from Quebec

Our experience with Chris & his team has been very pleasant. Chris is very knowledgeable with the military relocation process and the Ottawa market, he has been patient with our concerns, answered all our questions and sold our house quickly at full asking price. We will definitely contact him once we are back in Ottawa.

Meyrav B, Military Relocation

 

We worked with Chris’s partner Colin who exceeded all our expectations as a realtor. Our situation in the midst of house shopping was very chaotic and I don’t think it would have been possible without Colin’s skill, professionalism, attention to detail and his ability to adapt help us with absolutely anything that came up. When our next military posting comes up, we will definitely use Chris Scott Team to sell our home.

Meaghan and Anthony, Military Relocation to Ottawa from Ashton

Colin and my family have struck up a great working relationship filled with lots of great memories and laughs during the home viewings. The extended move situation was stressful and the quick close requirement was not easy – Colin took the stress out of the home buying experience and gave us lots of superb advice. Overall a great asset to the team, and a great advisor for us.

G. Parsons, Military Relocation to Ottawa from Nova Scotia

Chris did an amazing job helping us find our home! His experience with military moves showed. We felt no stress with the purchasing process and he went above and beyond to get us into our dream home. Its a perfect fit for our family.

A. Brule and S. Brule, Ottawa Relocation from Washington, D.C.

Chris Scott is an amazing realtor. He is not like any other realtor, he is committed and dedicated and he puts his heart in helping choose a home that we love. He helped us during our international deployment, he didn’t care about the time difference and made himself available to accommodate our situation. He helped us choose a house that we love and never gave up on us every time we weren’t interested in one. We love the house we live in because of Chris Scott. I have never seen a realtor go beyond the expectations to assist a buyer. Thank you Chris and Team.

P. Rajagopal, RCMP Relocation

Chris was our agent when we relocated to Arnprior. He was very patient when we switched our town preference after showing us many houses. His whole team was a pleasure to work with. They answered all our questions in a very timely fashion. Would totally recommend him to all our friends and family.

P. Simon, Ottawa Relocation

We had an absolutely amazing experience working with Chris and all his staff. They were always there to help when we needed it and Chris was 100% the reason why our offer was accepted on our new house, he definitely went the extra mile for us! Wouldn’t hesitate going back to them when/if we have to buy or sell another home in the future!

K. Courtney, Ottawa Relocation

Great realtor and person. We had an excellent experience moving to Ottawa from Nova Scotia a couple years ago. Chris is knowledgeable, provided sound advice and was always available to ask questions or look at another house. His continued client engagement and care, long after the purchase was complete is exceptional. Can’t recommend him and his team enough.

M. Tutton, Ottawa Relocation from Nova Scotia

Chris recently helped my fiancé and I purchase our first home in Ottawa. We received excellent service from the very beginning. As a military couple, we had one week to buy a house in a city we were unfamiliar with. From our long distance phone calls about what we wanted in a house to helping us navigate a new city and ultimately finding the perfect place for us within the first afternoon of house hunting, Chris was there for our every need! A celebratory champagne bottle even found its way to our hotel. We definitely recommend Chris and his friendly and knowledgeable team for your realty needs. We will be seeking them out when it comes time to sell!

S. Doucette, Ottawa Relocation

Chris did a fantastic job as my realtor, both when I moved to Ottawa and purchased a condo, as well as when I sold it. He knew the areas of the city very well and understood what I was looking for and helped me find a perfect match. His customer service and effort to keep his current and past clients informed regarding the real estate market in Ottawa is excellent. No other realtor I’ve worked with makes this kind of effort.

E. Smith, Ottawa Relocation

Chris was excellent!

Finding out that I was posted while deployed made the challenges of moving ever more daunting; however, Chris put our concerns to rest and hand walked us through the first time home buyer experience/military move with ease. The portal he created for us allowed us to view beautiful homes from afar until we were able to come out for our quick house hunting trip. From our discussions, he knew exactly what we would want in a house, and was able to find us a house within the first day of viewings. He then walked us through all the steps of purchasing the house along with providing recommendations for our home inspection, lawyer, etc.. which were all also fantastic.

Since moving into our home, he has checked in with us to ensure that we were settling in fine. Our overall realtor experience has been nothing but exceptional. We will definitely be seeking out Chris if we ever need to sell or if we have friends looking for a realtor in Ottawa.

M. Kerr, Ottawa Relocation from Nova Scotia

Authentic, professional and knowledgeable. Can’t say how much we enjoyed our experience of home buying with Chris Scott. We appreciate his commitment to helping us find a home in a tight time frame.

C. Richard and M. Savard, Ottawa Relocation from Nova Scotia

We were a military move and I would highly recommend the Chris Scott Team for this type of move. They were knowledgeable of the timelines and so accommodating with tight schedules. If we had to move again tomorrow, I’d call this in a heartbeat. Special shout-out to Colin who was amazing to work with! 

J .Whyte and R. Dunphy, Ottawa Relocation from Nova Scotia

We had Chris for our House Hunting Trip to Ottawa this year. We were extremely pleased with his services. Very professional and efficient team with excellent supporting tools. We definitely recommend Chris and his team to handle the particularities associated with a military move. Job well done!

A Garant, Ottawa Relocation from Kingston

We used Chris Scott for the purchase of our home in Ottawa after relocating from Vancouver. We selected him because of his experience with relocations in general. Being less versed in Ottawa real estate, Chris carefully helped us navigate our way in to this market by addressing our questions about neighbourhood qualities, market trends, and even down to the details of specific home qualities and attributes. Chris always considered both homes that met our basic criteria and ones that he considered good long term investments which we really appreciated. Leaving no rock unturned, Chris patiently helped us find our beautiful home. I would recommend Chris Scott to anyone.

J.S, Government Relocation from Vancouver

My husband and I relocated from Colorado Springs to Ottawa this year. Moving with the military and having never lived in Ontario, we had high expectations. We were impressed with the service Chris Scott provided! He promptly answered all of our inquiries; via email, phone and in person. He was well informed about the Ottawa real estate market and provided us with a lot of useful information. Most importantly, we ended up buying a home we love! I would recommend Chris Scott!

D Mcdonald, Ottawa Relocation from Colorado Springs

 

We moved to Ottawa few year ago in the Ottawa Area. We Seek Chris Scott Services. He was able to pinpoint exactly which area and house we were looking for. He makes sure to keep in contact with his customer. If you ever need help to buy or Sell a house please seek Chris Scott Service and you will not regret it.

Denise D, Relocation home buyer – Kanata

Chris was very accommodating to us throughout our long process of finding a house in Ottawa! His patience, professionalism, and reassurance kept us confident that we’d find a place after 7 unsuccessful offers. I’m very glad we had Chris to navigate us through the Ottawa real estate market. Thanks Chris!

D. Pickering, Ottawa Relocation from Petawawa

Chris was very helpful and patient throughout our house hunting/purchasing process in Ottawa. He was very accommodating and dedicated to finding us a home. He quickly responded to all of our questions and concerns, showing us many homes in a timely fashion. We truly appreciate his professionalism. Thanks again!

Carla, Ottawa Relocation from  Petawawa

We were a military move, closed on our house this past July. Chris was fantastic through the entire process and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Mike Tutton, Ottawa Relocation from Nova Scotia

Chris did a great job matching our family with the right house. We were moving from another province and he did our walk through so everything would be right when we moved in.

Dawne Jones,  Ottawa Relocation Buyer

Chris’s professionalism, particularly his capacity to ensure Military families have a smooth and successful HHT was beyond and surpassed our expectations.

Marc and Sherry, Ottawa Relocation from Winnipeg

Chris Scott knows the challenges of a military family.  He far exceeded our expectations.  He was prepared for the fast pace of an HHT and understands the unique nature of a military move. Thank you for everything and we will be back during posting time.

Angela and Andrew, Ottawa Relocation from  Kingston

Everyone we met so far near our house said that we got a steal of a deal!  Thank you, even if we were unsure of the west side of Ottawa, I want to say you steered us in the right way.  I would definitely recommend Chris Scott as a Realtor, your knowledge of the market and professionalism was over the top!  I will definitely pass your name around.

Annica and Kenny, Ottawa Relocation from  Edmonton

Chris is an excellent Realtor who is very familiar with Military moves. He was instrumental in finding us a home in a very short period of time. He is a wealth of information about Ottawa and is an absolute pleasure to deal with. We will use him again next time we move.

Lisa and Mike, Ottawa Relocation from Winnipeg

Very knowledgeable of Military moves and Brookfield Relocation Entitlements. Highly recommended. He was prepared when we flew in from Yellowknife and and we found our place. Helped be at the house for inspections when we couldn’t. Thanks Chris.

G. Campbell, Relocated in 2015

If you have been looking for a great realtor do not look anywhere else. Chris Scott helped us find our house when we moved to Ottawa. Before, during and after Chris is only a call away.

M.D’Astous, Ottawa Relocation from Barrie

When we heard we were being posted to the NCR, we were initially overwhelmed with the prospect of picking the “right” neighbourhood when considering commute times to downtown. We also struggled with making the leap into a more expensive market, coming from Greenwood. Chris did an excellent job of detailing the merits of the various communities and was very agreeable to switching gears mid-week and broadening our showings to include our new choices. He was able to get showings very quickly, which really impressed us. Chris was very understanding of the “sticker shock” we were experiencing and assured us most people posted to Ottawa feel the same way, especially those of us coming from the east.  We felt no pressure from Chris and he was very patient. Before, during, and after the sale, Chris continues to respond quickly to emails and is very professional. We would highly recommend him to any family relocating to Ottawa and would definitely use his services again.”

  Carolyn & Thomas Hines, Military Relocation to Ottawa

Upon meeting Chris, we felt more like friends than strangers, or just clients. His honesty and genuine concern for our best interest made this potentially stressful move easy and even fun. Being from out of town, Chris had become our “go to guy” for all things Ottawa. So thankful for his Representation as our Realtor!

N.Mackay and B. Mackay, Military Relocation to Ottawa

Chris provided me with a stress-free House Hunting Trip.  He was well prepared for my short window to purchase and had a list of inspectors, lawyers, etc lined up for me.  I was doing this HHT on my own so Chris’s opinions mattered a great deal.  He was always tuned in to my needs, budget and timeframe.  Chris’s before and after service was priceless.  We love his magazine and the little gifts that come throughout the year – they make us feel that Chris did not “leave us” after the purchase.  Not enough military people know about Chris and how great he and his team are.  If more realtors were like Chris, there would be no need for Duproprio or Grapevine!

Vicky and Brian Cox, Relocated from Bagotville

If your looking for a real estate agent in the Ottawa area who is proactive, intuitive and resourceful, Chris Scott is the professional to contact. Having to adapt to a quick changing circumstance we contacted Chris and gave him very little notice and we had little to no knowledge of the local area that we would want to call home. Before even seeing our first home, Chris knew we had a tight schedule and to our surprise had pre-arranged additional house viewings as well as a tentative house inspection at the end of the week. It is without a doubt that the success of our move and our high level of satisfaction with our new home is completely attributable to the work done by Chris. If your move is for work, personal or family reasons, Chris has proven to have the contacts and the resources to work with you

Janet and Chris Moyle, Relocated from Petawawa

Chris was exceptionally personable and made our Ottawa HHT an outstanding success! New to the NCR, we were very uncertain where to live and had no idea what traffic and commute times would be like. Chris had all the answers and great insight into the schools, transit system and the IRP process. He even worked closely with a fellow Quebec realtor so we could explore the Gatineau market as well. Bravo Zulu Chris.

Derek and Dee,  Relocated from London, England – CAF Member

Chris Scott is a highly professional Ottawa Realtor with integrity and compassion for those buying a home. Chris helped by asking the questions that needed to be asked while still respecting our choices and wishes. I have already recommended Chris and urge anyone who is posted to Ottawa to make him their choice.

Ken Hall & Kathryn Knight, Relocated from Angus, ON

Chris is extremely knowledgeable and professional. He helped prepare well for an efficient and effective Ottawa house hunting trip by supporting our online research with listings that met our needs. Most of all, during the trip he quickly learned what we wanted and needed and adapted his search recommendations to meet our expectations. The best agent we worked with so far.

Ryan & Monica Johnson, Military Relocation from Germany

We love our home! Your professionalism, advice, and support made our Ottawa house hunting trip a pleasure. We were impressed by the time you spent with us and the time you spent getting to know us and what we wanted in a home.

Denise & Thomas McCombe, Military transfer from Angus, ON

Chris Scott played an extremely important role in our move to the Ottawa area. As this was a military posting for us, neither my husband nor I knew exactly which part of the city we would be working in and therefore had no idea in which part of Ottawa we wanted to live. Chris rose to the challenge of the limited time we had for our house hunting trip to find us the house we wanted. We travelled from one end of the city to the other…Kanata to Orleans and everywhere in between. Chris truly wasn’t satisfied until we found the house that would work for us. He is a knowledgeable, patient and kind realtor who definitely has your best interests as his top priority.

Mandy and Erick, transferred to Ottawa from Edmonton

Chris is a truly devoted agent who takes the time to listen to your needs. He helped me find the perfect home. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Simon Poudrier, transferred to Ottawa from North Bay

When we learned in 2007 that we were posted to Ottawa, a good friend of ours recommended Chris as a real estate agent. We sent him an email and right away, he contacted us to discuss our needs and he started to send us listings. We made three trips to Ottawa before we found the perfect house. It was clear that Chris’ priority was to provide the best service possible. He was attentive to our comments, our likes and dislikes and his no pressure approach really made us feel comfortable working with him. Chris stayed in contact with us throughout our stay in Ottawa and he was an invaluable resource whenever we had questions about our house or the housing market in our area. We were so impressed with Chris, that we did not think twice when came the time to move again in 2011, he was the man of the situation. He did an in depth study of the market in our area and hired a professional home stager and photographer to prepare our home for the sale. The results were so good that our house sold in half a day! Chris’ professionalism, attention to details and his commitment to provide the best customer service possible, makes him the best real estate agent we met in our military career. If we are ever posted back to Ottawa, we are definitely retaining his services again.

Anny and Martin Houle, transferred from Ottawa to Quebec City

Having worked with numerous real estate agents across Canada, I believe that Chris is one of the very best. He demonstrated an excellent knowledge of the Ottawa market, was incredibly patient during the search for just the right house, and consistently provided outstanding advice and guidance. He understood the military moving process and was very accommodating. I have worked with Chris three times, and will certainly use his services again for my next posting.

Heather Morrison, transferred to Ottawa from Edmonton

Chris dedicated the entire week we were booked to come down. Before actually arriving in Ottawa Chris discussed the housing market, and asked us questions to better understand what we were looking for. We had a full day of viewings booked every day we were their, and we were able to get a real good grasp of what the Ottawa market had to offer. We found the right home for us and Chris followed through with his contacts and made all the arrangements for the home inspections required to close the deal. We could not of asked for a more complete service and we will not hesitate to use Chris’s services again. I highly recommend Chris for anyone needing a realtor.

Philip Joseph, transferred to Ottawa from Pincourt, PQ

Be sure to know the service we got from you was the best we ever had with an agent.

Marco Dallaire, Military transfer to Winnipeg
