Not only do we operate in Ottawa and the surrounding areas, but our staff members live in these communities for years, giving us an additional edge in helping you make the right decision about your residential real estate requirements in Ottawa. Furthermore, our team members’ involvement with numerous organizations & sphere of influence helps us generate more leads, price more accurately, negotiate with greater leverage, and give our clients the edge.
Our team is made up of buyer’s agents, listing agents, investment coordinators, rental agents, admin staff and in house marketing and professional photography. Just a few years ago we knew that the future of real estate was going to be run by real estate teams with technology and now finally the future of real estate is here and we are leading the way.
On the Home Guyz Team, our associates work together as a true team. They meet together multiple times per week; train together; specialize in areas of our city while sharing information and business; participate in group mentoring. In addition, tasks that typically weigh a Realtor® down are handled by team staff so they continually remain focused on matching up buyers and sellers.
We get our Buyers in front of potential Sellers before anyone else. We use a unique way for our buyers to advertise their wish-list and have sellers come to us.
Our commitment is to quality and a five star service. We are motivated more than ever to provide you with the best possible experience when it comes to selling or buying your home. Clients want to deal with Realtors® that have honesty, integrity, knowledge, expertise, and are committed to providing the best possible result for them. They want to deal with real people – our focus is on creating a relationship of trust and respect with all our clients. We’ve found that this philosophy is great for achieving personal satisfaction, high morale and continued success.
We work with a myriad of professionals to help clients from beginning to end. Marketing, administrative, technology experts, lawyers, home inspectors, mortgage brokers, photographers, home staging consultants, painters, electricians and handymen are all a part of our support team.
5 Star Response Time to Buyer Leads
According to a study done by MIT, the odds of contacting a lead more than 5 minutes versus 30 minutes drops 100 times. From 5 to 10 minutes the odds decrease by 5 times. Is there any wonder why the average single agent misses so many opportunities to convert buyer leads for their sellers? At The Home Guyz we have a dedicated inside sales team whose sole job is to respond to and convert buyer leads for your listing. The statistics are clear– the modern internet consumer moves fast, and expects us to do the same.
Professional Photography & Tours
The photos you use in your marketing matter! Buyers are browsing hundreds of listings and you have less than 3 seconds to grab their attention. We use a professional photographer and utilize every tool available to us that will make your listings pop! Our tours focus on your home in glorious full screen HD slideshows and 360 degree panoramic views. Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Qualified homes receive a complimentary home staging consultation from www.propertystaged.com – Property Staged helps you prepare your home for either living or selling by providing you with creative and functional solutions that best suit the property, budget and goals.
Fewer and fewer real estate agents are becoming skilled at the art of pro-active prospecting. A dirty little secret is that most agents fear rejection and that keeps them from picking up the phone and prospecting for their sellers. Agents like this rely on other agents working through the MLS® to sell their listings for them. Home Guyz Team agents work toward the rank of Master Salesperson and receive constant coaching that helps them overcome self-limiting behaviors. What all of that really means is that the Home Guyz Team doesn’t just sit back and passively wait for buyers for your listing to come to us, we fearlessly and pro-actively go find them.

The Price is Right!
We can establish a competitive price for your property by doing a comparative market analysis, the method used by lending institutions when approving or rejecting financing on your property. Research has shown that prospective buyers are knowledgeable, looking at an average of 12 homes. A property priced in line with its competition will receive all the benefits of proper pricing.

Our Easy Exit Agreements
As you undoubtedly are starting to see, whether or not your home gets sold depends heavily on the agent you choose to hire for the job. And choosing the wrong one can be extremely costly. One of the most common concerns we hear from sellers who have been through a negative experience previously is that they don’t want to be tied down into another lengthy listing contract with another agent. We think that makes complete sense. You could be locked into a situation for months with no recourse if things go awry.
Knowing this, The Home Guyz proudly offers a cancellation guarantee through our “Easy-Exit,” no questions-asked listing contract. Either you are completely happy with our services, or you can terminate the listing agreement at any time. There’s no gimmick here… It’s plain and simple, and most importantly, in writing.
