If you are wondering if you should try to sale your house by yourself or with the help of an agent, I strongly recommend not to waste any time and to choose Gabriel as your real estate agent.
Gabriel knows the Ottawa market, he knows how to promote the sell of a house and he is a good communicator. He is professional and base is decisions and actions of excellent values.
My house was sold quickly and for more then what I had expected. I can just say good things about the services provided by Gabriel.
Merci 1,000 fois Gabriel et continu ton bon travail
Great service, quick response to concerns and inquires. Highly adaptable to changing wants and needs. Able to find that hidden gem. Has a vast network of skill trades. Highly recommended
Nous avons récemment vendu notre ancienne demeure et acheté une nouvelle maison, les deux transactions ayant été effectuées par l'entremise de Gabriel. Nous ne tarissons pas d'éloges à l'endroit de Gabriel, qui a mené de main de maître les étapes parfois longues et tortueuses des opérations immobilières. Toujours souriant, enthousiaste et ponctuel, Gabriel a, à son grand mérite, rendu l'aventure la moins stressante possible. Optimiste par surcroît, il a su nous soutenir le moral par sa personnalité attachante. Nous vous le recommandons comme agent immobilier sans la moindre hésitation. Que vous puissiez vivre l'aventure immobilière en compagnie de Gabriel aussi agréablement que nous.

In the last 5 months Gabriel has helped us purchase a home, sell a house (we got asking price and it sold within days!) and find tenants for our rental property. The fact that we chose Gabriel for all of these transactions speaks volumes for how satisfied we were with his services. He is knowledgeable, responsive, professional and a pleasure to work with. He has all the right connections to get your home sold or to help you make the right purchase. I can’t recommend him enough. Thanks Gabriel.

We interviewed three agents before listing our home with a realtor and chose Gabriel for his professionalism, energy and extensive knowledge of the Overbrook area. As it turned out, we definitely made the right decision. Gabriel truly went above and beyond our expectations, putting a great deal of time and energy into helping us ensure that our property would show as well as possible, and he had many smart suggestions for making small improvements that would have a big impact on buyers. He also wasn't afraid to invest in marketing (online and offline), staging and top-notch photography. Most importantly, he delivered, and we accepted a good offer within five weeks of listing, even though we were selling at one of the slowest times of the year.
The communication was excellent, with frequent updates regarding visits, open houses and buyer and buyer agent feedback. His knowledge of technology (social media, web publishing, etc.) and the subtleties of the MLS database made a big difference. Unlike other agents we've had contact with in the past, Gabriel is completely ethical and was clearly dedicated to getting the best possible sale price for us, and not simply selling at any price.
We've already recommended Gabriel to several of our friends, and will continue to do so.

For a few years I had been doing my own research on properties and was convinced I knew everything about what was required to buy a home. I never thought I would work with a realtor, but when Gabriel was recommended to me, I thought why not set up one meeting. Well, looking back now I can definitely say that setting up that first meeting was one of the best decisions I made.
From the beginning, Gabriel was an incredible realtor to work with. He would present different suggestions and ideas about properties, his "food for thought" as he called it. After looking at several potential properties, he helped me find a house within the budget and area I was looking for. He went above and beyond being available at anytime of the day, and met me for the final walk through to make sure everything was good to go on closing day.
Having gone through the process and purchased my first home, I don't think I could have done it without Gabriel. I highly recommend him to anyone as an excellent and reliable realtor!
It is with pleasure and gratitude that we share comments on our experience with Gabriel de Varennes on the listing and sale of our home.
Gabriel had an initial meeting with us and took extensive notes regarding our specific situation and expectations. Initially we were uncertain of the asking price but Gabriel diligently checked multiple sources to run comparables. He provided us with outstanding advice about how to prepare our home for sale. His marketing plan, which included a virtual tour and aerial footage from a drone, professional home staging services and high-gloss printed brochures, exceeded our expectations. Gabriel was forthcoming and honest with changes that we needed to make in our home to attract buyers quickly and his advice was spot on.
Throughout the entire process, Gabriel was professional, conscientious and motivated. He is a highly attentive agent making us feel at times like we were his only clients, which was not the case. He is highly personable with a charismatic and engaging personality. He takes the time to follow-up with agents after each showing and took the time to follow through with us as well. We never felt neglected. We managed to sell our house for an excellent price, $65K above what the first two agents we interviewed suggested we list at! This was realized in a flat market.
We are pleased to recommend Gabriel de Varennes to anyone looking to sell or buy a home. In our opinion, he is hands down a cut above the rest in the real estate business and we would not hesitate to call upon him if we ever need to move again.
Please feel free to contact either one of us by email if you want to discuss our experience in greater detail.
