"We’d like to thank James for the hard work that he put into the preparation and successful sale of our Ottawa family home. He has an excellent handle on the local housing market and quickly established a genuine and personable relationship with us. All of his professional advice and practical, hands-on guidance showed us that James is a trustworthy and caring realtor who we would highly recommend."

"It was an excellent experience selling my house with James Stewart. James made me feel at ease with the entire process.  He was hands-on from start to finish.  He took the time to assist with all aspects of getting my house ready for sale and did more than I would have ever expected from a real estate agent. He kept me informed, always made himself available and, in the end, helped me navigate multiple offers. Because of his efforts, the house sold quickly and above my expectations."

"James recently helped us negotiate and close on a private sale. Buying our first home and knowing little about real estate, we looked for help from someone with knowledge and experience, and James is that person. He helped us navigate all the intricacies of the negotiation and buying process. Working with him was a pleasure - he is patient, attentive and timely, and we got a deal done in short order, with no detail overlooked."

"James, from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU. As I couldn't make it to Ottawa to look at properties, I relied completely on your detailed descriptions and recommendations. Your 'local knowledge' found me the perfect new home, in a community that is perfect for my lifestyle. I have been in my new place for over a month now and I cannot thank you enough for helping me find 'home' in a new city. I have already recommended you to friends and wish every real-estate journey was this positive! "

"We bought in Ottawa from out of province, site unseen. James helped us understand the Ottawa market, looked at multiple houses, was always available and worked tirelessly which is why we own our house now! Even after we bought, he was very invested in seeing our project through and helped us link up with trustworthy local businesses to have renovations completed. He really went above and beyond!"

"I’ve used James’s services on two occasions now for family estate sales. James is amazing! His handyman skills and endless amount of energy helped us prepare for listing and his honest, considerate personality was so welcomed during such stressful periods of time. I can assure everyone who reads this that James Stewart will always be my choice for a realtor. Thank you James from my entire family."

He has excellent people and client service skills and was calm and supportive through all the phases of buying our house from the search and viewing comparables through to the final negotiations with the seller.

"James' level of service and dedication was exceptional. We had one week in Ottawa, a city we were unfamiliar with, in which to find our family a new home. James dedicated his week to our search, and ultimately helped us find a beautiful home that we could not be more happy to live in."

"My wife and I are a young couple that were moving to the Ottawa region for work. James made us feel at home in Ottawa with his extensive knowledge of the City and the surrounding region. His professional and good-humoured approach made buying our first home an enjoyable and stress-free experience. James truly goes above and beyond to match you with the right home. He welcomed all of our questions, and his sound counsel gave us confidence as first-time home buyers. James made our future happiness in Ottawa his priority for which we will be forever grateful. If you want the peace of mind that your family and friends will be well cared for then James Stewart is the right person for the job."

"From the first meeting with James, he was extremely helpful and supportive. He took all the stress out of the process and I’m so grateful for all the extra time and effort he put in to sell my house.

"We chose James to assist us in finding a home within a short three day time window. During the entire process, we found him to be extremely accessible and available - even following up with us on weekends and late evenings. His knowledge of the local areas and market definitely helped us in finding the right home to purchase and we were able to view nearly 15 properties and have the purchase and inspection completed within our time limit. We found James to be very committed - despite what could be considered a gruelling task. Thank you so much James for your help!"

"James was a terrific agent.  He sold our house quickly, and for a very fair price due to his skillful negotiations.  He was always available for us, arranged all vendors (home stager, landscaper, etc.), and even did some odd jobs on his own for us.  We thought it would be painful to sell our house while living in another city, but James made it easy and trouble-free.  His follow-up was fantastic.  We would definitely use James again and would highly recommend James with confidence to all our Stittsville and Ottawa friends."

"We decided to call upon James when it was time to sell our home and find one that was more suitable for us. We wanted him to represent us while both selling our home and buying a new one because of his professionalism and his knowledge of different neighbourhoods. In all aspects of both the selling and buying process, James went above and beyond what you would expect of a real estate agent. He took a hands on role in helping us prepare our home for sale; creating curb appeal and getting repairs completed. He was realistic when he discussed with us the comparable sales in our neighbourhood and guided us with his experience in the Ottawa market, his attention to detail and enthusiasm. If you want a great realtor who will work for you and with you, we highly recommend James!"

"Although we were unfamiliar with the house buying process and the world of real estate, James Stewart exceeded all of our expectations in terms of service, honesty, and commitment to our search. Not only did he take the time to coordinate a ton of showings for us, but also took the time with us in every single house, helping us analyze and envision the space. He went that extra mile by working some very late evenings (including a late night on Valentine’s Day) to finish up paperwork before we left on a trip. He was accommodating, flexible, very easy to work with and we would both highly recommend James if you are considering buying a new (or first) home. We couldn’t be happier and more pleased with our house."

"Selling my house was not going to be easy but James negotiated to get my price, worked out all the details and closed the deal quickly. He found my new home too … it couldn’t have gone any better!"

"We contacted Royal Lepage as we wanted to sell our house and James became our realtor. James went overboard to sell our house and helping us with our big move. FIVE offers and the house sold well above the list price. What would we have done without James’s help, support and advice is impossible to imagine. This man has been a godsend. Thank you James."

"James made our first-time home buying experience easy and stress-free. This was a new process for us and James was always there to guide us through it. He got the lay of the land, answered all our questions and his relationship management skills and confidence put our minds at ease. He was fantastic to work with and we look forward to working with him again in the future."
