KIND WORDS

FROM OUR CLIENTS

Working with Greg Taylor was an absolute pleasure! His attention to detail, prompt service, and deep knowledge of the market made the entire process seamless. His exceptional negotiation skills ensured that we got the best deal possible. Throughout the journey, I felt incredibly comfortable with such a significant purchase, thanks to his professionalism and expertise. I highly recommend Greg and REAL Collective to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.

Adena Pinto

“This review is long overdue. We had met with other agents and just didn’t feel that they really wanted to get the best price. They just wanted their commission. Sean and his team was referred to us by a friend after sharing our frustrations. After contacting Sean he quickly responded, prepared a plan and presentation, and we retained his services. He offered the most professional, modern, and all encompassing services. A hard combo to find. They helped with staging, made an awesome video, recommended changes, proposed a solid price point, and off we went to the market in a very quickly. We were in a neighbourhood where all the houses are almost the same. We not only sold the house in a way shorter time frame than the others on the market, but also achieved a much better price – one that we never thought possible. A huge thank you for all of your guidance and work towards selling our home. We would highly recommend!”

“Elliot really knows his stuff! I’ve likely sold a dozen properties with Elliot. Since he’s an investor himself, he understand what a real estate investor needs, and even for buyers or sellers of a home for personal use, he brings a practical business sense to the transaction that helps with successful negotiation and ensuring such a large financial decision is taken care of properly.”
Luc B
“Sean and his team have been excellent partners to work with the past few years.
Sean understands what I look at in homes to buy depending on the strategy and how to sell it best too. Another reason I really like to work with Sean is that he values your business. While others are nonchalant or arrogant, Sean is polite, honest, shows gratitude in words and action and is not afraid to push the limits you ask of him.
Apart of being a realtor Sean is a very good human being too, from my personal experience in the ups and downs of life and real estate.
Thank you Sean… for what you do.”

“Greg Taylor is the agent you want representing you, whether buying or selling. He made our experience entirely positive, and we would highly recommend him to anyone. He goes the extra mile to take you every step of the way, and always with enthusiasm and a smile.”
Pam and Brian

I just bought a house with REAL Collective. I worked with Sean Tasse and Brendan McKeigan and they were fantastic. It was my first home buying experience and I felt very well supported and cared for. They are kind, caring, honest, wonderful people. I very highly recommend them!!

“Our experience working with Greg was fantastic from start to finish…we would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell. He knows the business, knows the area, and knows how to make sure your dream house is a possibility. Five stars!”

Isabelle and Donald

“I had a great experience with Real Collective. Sean Tasse and his team were simply amazing! They are friendly, dedicated, and professional. The entire process of working through the sale of my house was seamless and well arranged. I strongly recommend anyone interested in having the best real estate deal with their team.”

Jaffer and Sayeeda
“I had a wonderful experience with Sean and his team. They made the process look easy and stress free. They really know what they are doing. I would recommend them to anyone I know.”

“Sean and team were amazing! Sean worked very hard to get us what we were hoping for. Making our dreams come true!! He was super supportive and attentive. Highly highly recommend!!”

Connie Dougherty

“Brendan deserves 6 stars for his patience, great attitude and market knowledge. We had a blast working with him and Sean to eventually find our forever home. Very grateful for the support and definitely felt like we were in good hands throughout the entire process.”

Trevor Foran

“(Elliot) Answered questions about investment properties using personal experience. Pointed out flaws and features of properties we viewed. We live in another city and Elliot and his team helped us feel comfortable searching for and buying our property online and in person.”

Sean and Christine

“We have now worked with Brendan three times because he is prepared to every showing, readily available to answer all questions, and is always able to provide key market metrics. Buying and selling can be stressful, but with Brendan there’s always plenty of laughs and is all around a good time. He goes above and beyond to ensure his clients are happy, we look forward to working with him again in the future.”

Brennan and Mariah

“Sean is amazing. He was so patient with us and he and his team took us to see a ton of houses. His main goal was always for us to find a place that suited our needs. I was a bit worried that it would never happen but we finally put in a conditional offer and we couldn’t be happier with the place we found. Hire Sean you won’t be disappointed!”

Natalie Bergman
“Sean is just simply amazing! There has been times where I have struggled and he has been there answering my questions and helped me step by step. He will go out of his way to help you. He is very confident in what he does, and surely he knows his stuff very well! Would highly recommend him.”
Tania David

“Sean is the best real estate agent I have ever worked with and intend to use him again when the time comes to sell or buy new property. The most difficult quality to find in a agent is the ability to balance what you want with what is best for you – and these are not always the same thing! Sean is an expert at it. He listens to understand what is important to you and then blends that with his own experience of what he believes is best for you to come up with an exact match for your needs. It did not take long for him to find exactly what I was looking for and I am enjoying my condo ever since. Sean is honest, direct and easy to work with. Highly recommended.”

Adrian Rossi

“Brendan is definitely one of a kind. My husband and I walked into his office not knowing a thing about buying a home or what questions to ask, and Brendan took away all those worries. Within minutes we were laughing and telling stories like old friends, all while Brendan snuck in all the information we didn’t know we needed. It was a breeze!! He hooked us up with so many listings for houses with all our desired specs and price range… we fell in love with a few but finally settled on the perfect one. (Brendan was patient with me especially when I’d look at house after house and find some reason to love each one! Haha!) Now, almost 2 years after buying our home, we consider Brendan a friend. We touch base every now and then and pick up right where we left off.”

Angele and Dylan

“They say buying your first home is supposed to be stressful, well whoever ‘they’ are did not have Brendan as their agent. From our first meeting to walking into my new home Brendan made the whole experience incredible. From him amazing communication, dedication to helping me find the perfect home and his impeccable taste in beer I was consistently amazed with the level of personal service I received. During this tough housing market having someone who can make the experience not only easy but enjoyable is a game changer. My only complaint would be that I bought a house, because now I have less of an excuse to enjoy Brendan’s company, I may need to put my place up on the market soon, and when I do, call Brendan because he is going to help you buy it!”

Jenna W

“Sean Tassé is a real estate and sales genius! I bought my first investment property four years ago (with Sean), and just sold it a month ago (with Sean) for a hefty gain. When it came to buying my property, Sean was patient, educated me on up and coming neighbourhoods in Ottawa, and was able to negotiate the property I wanted for under asking. When it came to selling my property, Sean formalized a detailed plan with his interior designer given my reno budget, used his data-driven software to determine when it would be best to list my property, and expertly negotiated $75,000 OVER my home’s asking price/fair market value. I strongly recommend Sean Tassé to be your agent if you’re buying/selling in the Ottawa region. He is highly responsive in his communication, wicked smart, patient, and is an avid long distance runner! Anyone is welcome to contact me if you have questions about my experience and Sean’s excellent business practices.”

KJ

“I normally do not write reviews as I am not easily impressed by the quality of service I have witnessed from past experiences. However, during my dealings with Sean, he has only demonstrated the highest level of quality service and earned a flattering review. In my perspective Sean is one of the most driven and knowledgeable realtors in Ottawa and every chance I get I make referrals to illustrate the confidence I have in him. Sean contacted me out of the blue as did many other agents however Sean presented himself very differently; he was driven, persuasive, well organized and enthusiastic. What I like the most about Sean is his compassion; he thinks outside the box and is flexible to change. I find him to articulate, network and attend to needs extraordinarily well. He is a master negotiator and his approach always seem to result in effectively meeting my needs as well as leaving everyone involved feeling comfortable. I will continue to recommend Sean not only because he is an outstanding agent but also because he is an AMAZING person! SEAN ROCKS!”

Tina Arvanitis

“An amazing realtor. Always willing to go the extra mile for his clients, sometimes literally as I had this poor man from the west end of the city to the east! A true gem, if you want a great real estate agent, you want Sean! Not just your friend in real estate, he will make your family feel like his family.”

Jen Em

“Sean is one of the most honest and well-meaning person I’ve had the pleasure of working with. I purchased my first home through him and he went above and beyond to make sure the entire process went smoothly. He worked with my busy schedule and set aside plenty of time so we could go see homes throughout Ottawa. Never once did he rush a viewing or made me feel like I was wasting his time. In fact, he took the time to voice his opinion on properties we visited taking into account what my family and I were looking for. As it was my first home purchase, Sean made sure I was comfortable throughout the way including after I took possession. Looking back now, I realize how silly I must have sounded asking about the most mundane things, but Sean never made it seem awkward. When the time comes to eventually purchase a new property, I’ve no doubt in my mind that I’ll be giving Sean a call.”

Ashar K

“Just a note to say thanks for all you have done for us throughout this process. As first time buyers, we had a lot of unanswered questions regarding the purchase of our home. Thank you for providing the answers to many of these and giving us informed advice on the homes that we visited!”

Ann Smith

“The Real Collective is an amazing, professional, and dedicated team. I was going through a separation and needed to find a home for me and my daughter. Brendan was very understanding, patient and thorough. He made sure to give me good advice based on my needs and my budget and I was able to find a great house in the location I was looking at. I will use this team again in the future.”

MC

“Brendan deserves 6 stars for his patience , great attitude and market knowledge. We had a blast working with him and Sean to eventually find our forever home. Very grateful for the support and definitely felt like we were in good hands throughout the entire process.”

Trevor

“We’ve gone through over deals buying and selling properties with Elliot and Sean int he past few years and would recommend them to anyone any day!”
