Testimonials

My husband and I recently purchased a condominium. John Newman acted as our agent and we were extremely pleased with the service he provided us. He was knowledgeable and conscientious and responded to any requests promptly and efficiently. We would not hesitate to recommend John to anyone purchasing or selling a home.

We hired John to sell my mother’s condo after she decided to move into a retirement residence. John was professional and friendly throughout the process, and made the whole experience stress-free for all of us. John was always available, addressed our questions and concerns promptly, and kept us updated on feedback from potential buyers. In the end, his experience and advice were key factors in sealing the deal. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home. Thanks, John, for making it happen!

This is the second time that we have worked with John on the sale of a property. In both cases, John provided us with outstanding advice and service. He made sure that our interests were protected and that we were completely comfortable with the entire process. His honesty and no-nonsense approach to the business were both reassuring and refreshing. There is no doubt that we would welcome the opportunity to work with John in the future.

We would like to thank John for all his hard work and effort in helping us sell two homes and to purchase our dream home on the water! John's professionalism and attention to detail were key in helping us through all the transactions and associated inspections and other related activities. John's in-depth knowledge and experience were obvious right from the get go - from the listings (and showings), through negotiations and finally with the closings and subsequent follow-up. Well done and many, many thanks!

John was very professional and very easy to work with during the process of selling our house. He provided us with all the information we required before the house went on the market, answered all our questions, emails, phone calls very quickly and gave us the ability to make the right decisions during the process. The photos, virtual tour and selling feature sheets were excellent. The house was shown in the best possible way with good views of the main rooms with high quality photos. As a result, our house sold within days. We would recommend John to anyone who is looking for an honest, hard working real estate agent.

Thank you to John Newman from Keller Williams Solid Rock Realty Inc. for selling our home. We sold it at very close to our asking price within two weeks of listing. Also, we found the presentation literature was excellent. If you are thinking of selling your home or condo, we would highly recommend that you give John a try!

My sister recommended John Newman to us as our realtor. John is the type of person that listened very carefully to our needs and he went out of his way to make sure he met them all. John is a walking book of knowledge and resources. His years of experience allowed him to zero-in on exactly what we were looking for and John delivered what he had promised - a new home that my husband and I love and can enjoy for the rest of our lives. Thank you so much for all your patience and your guidance. It was a real pleasure doing business with you.
Des and Johanne, Ottawa ON

We had the opportunity to have John Newman assist us in purchasing our first home. When we weren’t exactly sure what we wanted in a house, John was able to help us narrow it down and determine what was best for us. Because we didn’t have a specific location in mind, John gladly traveled to various locations in and out of the city to meet our needs. He was very knowledgeable and didn’t hesitate to give us his valued opinions. We would highly recommend John as a real estate agent to anyone interested in purchasing a home.
Hollie and Jon Mahusky

We would like to thank John for all his help in selling our house. When we listed with another agent we had no viewings but once John took over we had over 30 culminating in the sell. John worked hard for us getting our home advertised in several real estate papers as well as setting up a web site so we could have people from across Canada see it. He also held open houses whenever we requested them. He was always available to answer any questions we had. Thanks again for you dedication and hard work John.

Thank you John Newman for jumping on board and helping me find my first home. I took you all over the city and beyond. Your patience and determination got me exactly what I was looking for. I couldn’t have asked for a better real estate agent – you care about your clients and want the best for them. Thank you so very much!

John was asked to sell my elderly father's condo after he decided to move into a retirement residence.   We found John to be friendly and pleasant in all our dealings with him. John not only suggested the selling price but also recommended that the condo be staged so as to make it more appealing to potential buyers.    John was persistent in holding multiple open houses and chasing down potential buyers. We were pleased in how he kept us updated on any feedback he received from both realtors and/or potential buyers.   John provided suggestions and guidance when offers were received. When an acceptable offer was received, John took care of all the necessary details, relieving us of the much of the worry and stress usually associated with selling a property. In all our dealings with John, we found him to be both courteous and professional at all times.   Finally, my father was satisfied with the final offer received and was grateful to John for his handling of the sale.   Both my father and I do not hesitate in recommending John to any future clients.

We would like to thank you for your highly professional, but personal service you provided us when selling one of our homes. Being able to sell my property in just 3 short weeks was very impressive, but selling it for 98.1% of the asking price, was simply remarkable! As well, you went over and above what was expected of you as a realtor, ensuring our home was looked after while we were away on our honeymoon. Soon it will be time to list my husband's house and purchase our matrimonial home. We are looking forward to working with you again soon! Sincerely, Darlene and Roy (Ottawa)

We gave John some guidelines when we were looking for a downsizing condo and a change in our living style. "Buck" didn't waste our time with uninteresting properties. He either personally showed us appropriate properties or directed us to his website. In short order we found our new home. John was diligent and professional in taking care of the details and went out of his way to accommodate our available time.

My wife and I would like to thank Mr. John Newman, Sales Representative at Keller Williams Realty for recently selling our home. Mr. Newman first impressed us with his sales record, I don't know of any other real estate agent who has sold every home they have listed with most of his recent sales selling for more than 98% of the listed price. Although I have bought and sold many homes over the years, I have never dealt with an agent that provided such a comprehensive service including a professional stager, photographer, designer and printer. When we first met the stager we were somewhat skeptical of the value she might bring, however, she pointed out things we never would have noticed and offered advice that truly made a difference. The day after we implemented all of the suggestions offered by the stager, Mr. Newman arranged for a professional photographer to take pictures of our home. The photographer did a superb job and the house showed extremely well. Things happened very quickly once the house was photographed. Specifically, within a day or two of the photographer completing the photo shoot, Mr. Newman paid for the design and production of professional/full colour brochures featuring our home, posted our listing on the web and placed a sign on the lawn. He immediately arranged for several Open Houses and provided us with feedback on each visitor to our home. Mr. Newman followed up with each perspective buyer and provided us with feedback and suggestions every step of the way. We were extremely pleased when Mr. Newman presented us with a full price offer with the closing date we had requested. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Newman to family, friends, colleagues and individuals looking for an experienced and highly professional Real Estate Agent that truly is a cut above the rest.
