Below are some of our Client Testimonials

By: Bruce and Kate

Thank you, Colleen, for all of your efforts in finding us a new home. We appreciate how you kept our wishes in mind since meeting you in October, then informing us when a suitable house became available. You guided us carefully through the buying process, leading us to consider the market value of the home we wanted, helped us realize a suitable first offer, then 'held our hand" through counter offers until we and the seller reached an agreement. Your knowledge and advice on the steps in buying was invaluable. We particularly appreciated that you worked hard for US, to reach a realistic price. As the proud owners of a home we are delighted to own, we commend you for your tenacity on our behalf, your advice and your overall hard work and kindness .... especially shown during your car accident in a snowstorm!! To adapt a quote from the US postal service, "Neither snow nor sleet nor hail shall stop the US mail [Colleen!] from delivery [of documents]

There can be no doubt in Colleen's capacity to place her client's needs at the top of her priority list. Working with Colleen to purchase my home was an excellent experience. She went to great lengths to learn about my needs with great attention to detail and with every home we visited it became more evident she understood exactly what I was looking for, until she found the house that was perfect. I would recommend Colleen and would gladly work with her in the future

We were very pleased to have Colleen as a Realtor. She always made us truly feel we were her number one priority when dealing with the sale of our home. We would recommend that any one selling use her services. She is very professional and informative. She kept us appraised of any changes that came up. Well done Colleen and thank you for all the hard work!!!

My business partner and I met Colleen at an open house in the Spring of 2011. Our brief experience led us to select her as our real estate agent. Since then, Colleen has served us with exceptional service and has never let anything slip through the cracks. We have referred her to friends and family and will definitely be using her services in the future.

In life you meet a few people who love their job and provide the something extra that makes the experience of working with them enjoyable. Colleen is one of those rare people. Colleen was referred to us be a good friend and from the start she provided the advice and guidance required to make our home purchase go smoothly. Being in the military and moving many times over the years I have had both bad and good experiences but this one will go down as the best one yet. Colleen stuck with us as we learned about the Ottawa market and helped us to develop a sense of where we would finally fit in. She managed to keep up with us every step of the way arranging showings at the last minute, informing where a house we were interested in would fail to meet our needs, and providing us with new listing that would meet our needs. Even after we found the perfect house she was there through all the inspections, offers and counteroffers providing expert advice and counsel. To top it all off she hosted our house warming party. I would whole heartily recommend her to friends and family.

We weren't planning on selling our house and buying a new one but the one house that we loved came up for sale and we didn't want to pass up the opportunity. It wasn't great timing to be selling: the summer was drawing to a close and it was back to school time. We had the added stress of needing to sell quickly in order to proceed with the purchase of our dream home. Colleen's name was given to us by some friends who had used her when they were house-hunting and spoke her of her tireless energy. We interviewed two other agents and then Colleen. She wasn't off our driveway before we called her back in to sign her; we were that impressed with her presentation! What impressed us most in our initial meeting with her was her obvious passion for selling houses, her knowledge of the market and her comprehensive plan to sell our house. She had definitely done her homework before our meeting. We were also convinced of that tireless energy of which our friends spoke. Everything we saw in our first meeting with Colleen came to fruition. She had her stager at our house the following day, we had a weekend to do our part, then her photographer came in, the sign went up, and we were on the market! Our first offer came in the first day we were listed. Colleen navigated the dealing with confidence and ease and what could have been a series of complicated transactions went off without a hitch. We are now happily living in our dream home. We won't hesitate to recommend Colleen to anyone buying or selling a home.

As a military family, we typically have one week in which to find and buy a house. Colleen dedicated her time to us, listened to our needs and helped us find the perfect house in a wonderful neighborhood. Her negotiating skills were exemplary and won us the house at a price $5000 lower than we even thought possible. We would highly recommend Colleen to any of our colleagues and friends and will without a doubt enlist her expertise when it is time for us to move again!

As first time home buyers, we were very inexperience and nervous. We heard about how real estate agents can be very aggressive and quite intimidating but then we met Colleen. She was so friendly and never pressured us in the slightest. She was definitely the nicest real estate agent we have ever met. Colleen took the time to explain the steps of buying a home with us and never rushed us into things. Colleen even brought us several different homes in order to show us what to look for when buying a home. We learned so much during the process and it was a great experience buying our first home with Colleen. We would absolutely recommend Colleen to anybody looking to sell or buy a home.

I'm one happy buyer! I had the good fortune to meet Colleen after finally becoming committed about buying my first home. I was immediately impressed by her expertise and energy. It's clear that she enjoys matching people with the right house. From the first viewing, to the last signature on the purchase, I appreciated Colleen's insight, promptness, and accommodations to my schedule. Most of all, I appreciated her ability to balance between the buyer and seller's wishes so that everyone is happy at the end of the day. I would highly recommend Colleen to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. When I'm ready for my next income property, I definitely want her on my team.

I had the pleasure of working with Colleen when she sold my house. In a lackluster market with many competitively priced houses in my area, Colleen proved to be a highly knowledgeable, motivated, and customer oriented Realtor. She impressed me from our first meeting and didn’t waiver once. She brought a positive energy and drive as she focused on selling my house. She was always reachable, answered my questions clearly, and ensured that I understood every step of the house selling process. Colleen is a winner. I highly recommend her.

I would highly recommend and will recommend Colleen Lyle to everyone I know that will sell or anyone looking to buy. She was beyond amazing and made our entire selling experience such an easy and smooth ride. She is very professional and takes the time to work with you to ensure that all of your needs are met. You will always be her number one priority. She is super committed and passionate and super hardworking. I would strongly recommend her to anyone in a heart beat and will be using and working with her in the future.

By: Janine

Colleen Lyle and her team were definitely the right fit for us. They were honest, hard working, and not afraid to be tough when negotiating time came. It’s certainly nice to have a team that is not only motivated and competent in their field, but very personable at the same time. We would not hesitate to recommend the Colleen Lyle Real Estate Team to anyone for their real estate needs!

By: Renee

It was great working with Colleen, she's very passionate and knowledgeable about what she does! She sold our house in 6 days and we couldn't be happier!

Joey took the stress and worry out of finding a new place and was able to locate exactly what I was looking for, quickly and professionally. I would wholeheartedly recommend his services to anyone looking to rent or buy in the Ottawa area

By: Janine & Aaron

Colleen, Joey & Christine are an amazing team. Colleen sold our home essentially in 2 days, and went well above and beyond in that regard. Joey spent countless hours helping us to find our dream home, and Christine answered every single question we had along the way. We can't thank them enough for everything they did for us, and we'd highly recommend their services to anyone selling and/or purchasing a home.
