We had great service from the team. We always heard back on our questions quickly. They helped us decide on how best to invest for selling and staging. They helped us monitor the showings. The final negotiations were done in real time and we got a much higher price than we thought we would get. Highly recommended!read more

I can easily recommend the services of the Geoff and Bobbie McGowan team. Jenn and Steve were the two agents I worked with and it was an incredibly smooth, stress-free, and professional experience. Emails were always answered promptly (almost instantly). The photos were incredible. Hats off to the photographer. And while I was at first confused as to why they would want to create a laser scanned virtual tour of a condo, it turned out great and really gave buyers a feel for the space. In fact, after only six days, we had had a dozen showings, with six offers, and got 85k over the asking price. I couldn’t be more pleased with the result.read more

We have retained Geoff McGowan and his team for several secondary house purchases and sales over the past twenty years … and they were definitely our go-to when we decided to sell our principal residence in Kanata to go to something smaller. The McGowan team includes a fabulous photographer who made our house look better than it ever has, as well as an excellent staging service that read the Riot Act about my needing to clear out stuff to open up room views. Jennifer Chamberlain was our point person for this particular sale and both she and Geoff were available constantly and next to instantaneously when issues arose or we had queries. This testimonial comes with our heartfelt thanks to the Geoff McGown team for our successful sale and with our sincere recommendation to prospective buyers and sellers about the quality and professionalism of their realty services.read more

I highly recommend using the Geoff and Bobby team. Our agent, Steve Burgoin, was exceptional in helping us find a home in the Ottawa area. He quickly plugged us into their Matrix system making House hunting easier. As this was a long distance move, Steve offered to pick us up at the airport or hotel and show us around. He provided all the tips and support we needed. With his help, we found the perfect house for our family and our needs.read more

The team at Geoff and Bobbie provided us clear direction, sound advice and were incredibly responsive to our questions and requests. We could not have made this move without them and we can’t thank them enough!

My wife and I were very pleased with our experience with this agency and Steve Burgoin our realtor. On first meeting Steve we were impressed with his pleasant and competent demeanour. In this insane sellers market his obvious experience and knowledge of the real estate business was evident.In my professional life I have been used to assessing people and my first impressions of a man with integrity, and honesty, balanced by grace and a good sense of humour were fully justified. His respect for the tenets of his professional and yet his ability to guide both buyer and seller to arrive at a fair deal for both was very evident.Steve is well backed by a competent office staff and ensures the paperwork is done promptly.We have no hesitation in recommending Geoff and Bobbie McGowan’s agency. Long may they stay in business!Derek and Hilary Tyrrell

Thanks also to Greg and Jessie for their excellent input – you have put together a great team. Seeing the SOLD sign up this morning made our day! Thank you again.Rick and Rebecca

Excellent Service!! A wealth of knowledge from Steve and Geoff! They go above and beyond and truly care about their clients!We moved to Ottawa in 2017 and Steve worked with us to purchase our property. It was a sellers market so we were a bit nervous as buyers. Steve kept us away from bidding wars and made sure we didn’t overpay for our house.Two years later we are being moved with our employer. Geoff worked with us to sell our house. When we first met with him and he told us the value had increased 14.8% we were quite surprised. We listed the house for what he suggested and it sold in less than one month.Karilyn is the administrator who was always available to answer any questions and ensured we had feedback from realtors that viewed our house.We have purchased and sold a few properties in other Cities and Geoff and Steve and the rest of the team are the best Real Estate team we ever worked with. We would highly recommend them!!

Our family recently had a very positive experience selling our home and buying our new home. Geoff and his team have a wealth of knowledge and experience buying and selling homes in Ottawa. Throughout the process Geoff would provide insight about how we could do things to have the best outcome, he always listened to what we were saying and helped us figure everything out with a lot of patience. We really felt that Geoff removed any stress from a normally stressful process. Now that we are done the kids still want to look at more houses with Geoff. We have worked with Geoff on previous homes and also have and will continue to recommend him to our friends and family.

Having lived in Kanata for 27 years and observed the success that Geoff and Bobby have enjoyed, they were my obvious choice when it came time to list my home. Their long time partner Steve Bergoin listed my home and it sold in 34 days. Steve is a true professional who was available whenever my wife or I had a question. He arrived at our home during the severest of ice storms to deliver important documents and always with a smile. Steve then spent a great deal of time helping us in successfully finding our new home. His advice, and depth of Real Estate knowledge was invaluable. Thank you to this great organization. Al Neill, Kanata, ON.

We were looking for an agent who was knowledgeable, professional, who had lots of experience,as well as someone we could count on from start to finish. Geoff came through on all accounts. As we were out of the country during our sale we left the key with Geoff. He told us he would take care of everything. Over and above the usual Geoff arranged to have our walkway shoveled, he even sanded and salted our driveway himself. The pictures and video that Geoff and his team produced were great – a cut above! Above all Geoff was professional. We truly appreciated his low key approach. Geoff’s expertise was in evidence when the offers came tumbling in. The house sold on the day that Geoff predicted it would. We hired Geoff McGowan to sell our house, and that he did!

Geoff McGowan was recommended to us. Our search began many months ago with Geoff, long distance. He really listened to us, was consistent and patient. When we made the trip to Ottawa, he had a large number of potential homes lined up for us to see and spent two full days chauffeuring us around to view them. Geoff was even better in person! He is professional, very informed, tuned into his clients, patient and a very nice person! Although we didn’t anticipate that we would actually buy on this trip – we found and bought the perfect home for us! We would highly recommend this real estate professional!

We recently bought and sold with Geoff and Bobbie & their team, and couldn’t have been more pleased. Searching for our new house was an absolute pleasure. When selling our house, Geoff and Bobbie offered a staging consultant to come in and suggest what should be changed. Our house was listed for just 3 days, and sold for well over asking price. Their expertise and knowledge of the neighborhood made selling hassle-free. We wholeheartedly recommend Geoff and Bobbie for anyone’s realty needs.

Geoff McGowan and his team are the best in Ottawa. Definitely consider using them…you wont be disappointing. As a member of the CAF, resale is always important…probably the most important. Geoff truly understands this and holds no punches if you are about to make a mistake. This is the second time we have used Geoff and his team to buy/sell a home in Ottawa and we will use him again and again. He is well versed in the CAF/BGRS relocation program and knows how to navigate the program to ensure you are covered. Weather you are military, a seasoned buyer or a first time buyer…call Geoff or one of his team.

When it came time to sell my home, I had heard of Geoff & Bobbie and decided to give them a try. When I met Geoff for the first time, I was blown away by his amount of experience, professionalism, & in-depth knowledge of the housing market. I managed to sell my home with Geoff within the first day of being on the market. Regardless of Geoff’s busy schedule, he went out of his way to be available around my schedule & to answer any questions/concerns I had. I would highly recommend Geoff for any of your Real estate needs.

Our realtor in BC referred us to Stephen Burgoin and we spent some time with him last fall. Steve was really gracious and generous with his time despite not having a deal in the immediate future. I got regular e-mails over the months with suggested listings and when our house in BC sold in February, we immediately called Steve. Despite having a 5 month lapse since we last met with him, he had a short list ready for us when we got to the Ottawa area. He spent almost an entire week taking us to various houses all over the Ottawa area but nothing really worked for us. When we discussed each of the properties after we finished our tour, Steve provided great insights and treated us like friends more than ‘customers’. On our last day in Ottawa, we checked one last place and it was really great. We ended up buying that house and despite having to do the transaction from across the continent, Steve made the entire process easy for us. He set up the inspections and met with the inspectors, he’s delivered deposit checks, and he’s kept us updated every step of the way. If there was a way to give Steve a 6th star, we’d do it! I’d certainly recommend working with Steve to all my friends.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

If you’re like me, the thought of putting your home on the market is an instant way to raise your blood pressure! Finding agents you trust and who are willing to cater to your needs and expectations is a stressful experience in itself.

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised, a few years ago, when we contacted Geoff McGowan. We wanted to sell our house and knew little about the market conditions in Ottawa at that time. Geoff was not only professional and attentive but he was also very knowledgeable. Most of all, he listened!

The McGowan team certainly met our needs in the past and I would highly recommmend them to my friends and family members.

Helene B.


We are very happy with the services provided by Geoff’s team.  We had our house on the market (FSBO route) prior to going with them and we were getting nowhere fast.  Even though people were coming through, they just weren’t ready to buy.  We also had a few other agents solicit us, but we were unimpressed with what they had to offer.  We met Geoff at the Home & Garden Show and liked him from the get go.  Geoff came to us with a well laid out marketing plan that left us feeling confident in our decision to go with an agent.  Kudos also to Steve and Kelly for providing us with excellent service.  The team is definitely like a well-oiled machine and was able to have our house sold in mere days!

Karen


Lisa and myself would like to extend our thanks to you for helping us in buying our house. You made the process from the searching and buying point of view very easy. Since it was our first house, we needed your assistance more than ever.

Thanks also for the nice gift and the nice letters. They are appreciated. I learnt a lot through the process. We are very happy with our new home and love the neighbourhood and being close to family. We still have lots of things that we want to do to upgrade the house – which I imagine will be an ongoing process. Look forward to dealing with you again in the future and hope to throw some business your way if friends and family are in the market for a realtor.

When we decided to sell our home, I interviewed a number of agents. Most came through, looked around and said our house was nice. They then asked me to prepare and send them a detailed list of features and builder’s upgrades so that they could put together a feature sheet. Next, they tried to have me sign with them as the listing agent. I was really disappointed with their approach. I had heard they were reputable agents, but they didn’t prove they were willing to really earn our business.

Then, Geoff McGowan walked through the door. We discussed in detail our families needs, including the quick sale of our current home in order to be in position to purchase a particular property which had recently come on the market. Geoff took the time to gain a clear understanding of our needs and then made his own list of our homes’ features. He offered sound recommendations on a plan to secure our new home and quickly sell our current home for top value.

Finally, we had found an agent who was really willing to earn the right to our business. We signed with Geoff and Bobbie the next day, as both selling and purchasing agents.

Things moved fast after that. Geoff quickly sold our current homew, at 99.5% of list price. Then he successfully secured our new homw in a competitive bid situation It was all wrapped up within a week our first meeting. Throughout that hectic week, Geoff kept things focused and on track. He offered sensible, timely advice and regular progress updates. We were confident we were getting the best representation available. I wholeheartedly recommend Geoff and Bobbie McGowan to anyone interested in buying or selling their home in the Ottawa Area

I love the no nonsense approach of Geoff and his team. It’s so refreshing to have professionals who actually give you solid advice based on years of experience. I loved working with Geoff, Kelly and Steve and look forward to more transactions with them in the months and years ahead.

Moving is undoubtedly one of the most stressful experiences a family can be subjected to. This is why we have used Geoff McGowan whenever we return to Ottawa and purchase a home. In addition to his warm personality and great advice, Geoff is a wealth of knowledge on the market, Ottawa area, and every other conceivable detail you would need to know. I would not use anyone else to buy or sell a home.

– Chris Ayotte 


It was apparent from Geoff McGowans’s candor and real estate acumen that my property sale would be handled in a professional manner by a realty expert. This was reflected in my property sale stats: days on market – 1, sale/list 99.5%.

– Daniel Lapalme 


Could not have asked for a better person to help us buy and sell 2 homes in the Ottawa region. I would recommend the use of their expertise to anyone. It’s been a pleasure working with you Geoff.

 – Peter chartier 


Wonderful team!

 – Tim Cooper 


I have known Geoff since 1992 when he was the agent my company chose to help me find a home in Ottawa coming from Edmonton. Over the years we have completed 6 buy or sell transactions with Geoff. We have moved to Pittsburgh, Seattle and Charlotte NC since and have relied on Geoff and Bobbie to find us a good ReMax agent in each of those cities. I have referred my sister and friends to Geoff over the years and would not hesitate to recommend him again. He is honest and one of the hardest working people I know.

 – Dennis Mooney & Suzanne Galvin


Geoff and Bobbie sold my home at 72 Rowe Dr in Kanata in a very soft market at a very difficult time of the year. I went through a gruelling interview process to select my agent and it paid of in spades. Geoff explained their strategy & process and they met every promise that they made. If you are looking for a full service agent with the results to back up their claims, look no further. Highly recommended!

– Keith 


Geoff has always made the time to assist my family, even if it is at the last minute. He addresses all of our questions thoroughly, and he has given us useful advice on selling our home. Now that we are at the purchasing stage he has flexibly adjusted his involvement to our changing needs and time constraints. I also like the monthly newsletters that he and Bobby send out that give us helpful tips on having a home. Bobby’s recipes are a nice surprise in the newsletter that complement the content. Thanks Geoff and Bobby!

– Jodi Lusk


Working directly with Geoff McGowan toward the sale of one home and the purchase of our new home was a very rewarding experience. Juggling the sale of our home to coincide with availability of the next purchase can be very stressful. Geoff’s calm assurance that the right home would be there for us provided by the company recommended by Geoff, our house sold and it was time to get serious about the purchase and narrow down the choices.

Geoff was always patient through the whole process, as he knew as well as (or better than) we did what would be a new home and location that would suit us, and where we would be happy for the long term that we hoped. There was never any pressure to move quickly as we viewed many properties to narrow the search. We ended up exactly where we should be.

His attention did not stop there, as we are now happily employing a contractor recommended by Geoff, putting details in place to personalize our new home. Thanks, Geoff, for your days and hours of support.

– Donna McCarthy


What impressed me the most: using latest technology (web based advertising, video on Youtube), they hire professionals for staging and video/photography (and they were very good) and they always replied to our questions or concerns in less then 10 seconds (texting). They also helped us with a very accurate market value estimate!

The house sold in 6 weeks.

– Dominic Sotirescu


I dealt with Geoff, and Kelly in the office, for the sale of my home. His comprehensive market analysis and marketing strategy was explained in detail, and was very appealing in light the small number of comparable houses currently selling. He provided me with professional staging services, professional photography and video, professional brochures, full support throughout the process, and sound advice to attract buyers. I would not hesitate to use the Geoff and Bobbie McGowan team again, and would highly recommend them for all your real estate needs.

-Don Peddle


I have nothing but positive things to say about Geoff and Bobbie McGowan Realty. We began our search 6+ months ago and Geoff was more then happy to take us out to many places to look at, despite my wife and I having no set timeline and being fairly non-committal. They were patient, helpful and adapted and worked with our changing needs and wants throughout the process.

When the time to start making serious offers and a purchase rolled around, Stephen was a fantastic help. He was patient, responsive, knowledgeable and personable. He knows the process and is great at communicating and helping us as first time homebuyers learn the process which can truly be overwhelming.

We also had the privilege of working with Kelly for a last minute viewing, and it was great to know that there is an entire team of equally dedicated, equally talented agents ready to help!

Even though we’re ecstatic with our new home, I look forward to being able to work with the team in the future and trust that I’d be in good hands.

– Zach Desai


We interviewed many Agents before deciding upon Geoff McGowan. We found that he has the ideal balance of familiarity and business acumen. The listing process was quick and thorough making good use of social media. Many neighbours and friends commented upon the professional video and photo presentations. The efforts of Geoff and his team led to a quick sale. They are good at what they do and we highly recommend them.

– Jeannie Kelly


The most professional couple that I have ever dealt with in real estate. I have bought and sold four homes with Geoff and Bobbie. They are the consummate professionals at all times. They will not show you a home that does not fit your criteria nor will they up sell you beyond your budget. All homes were dealt with professionally and easily. Quite simply if you want sleep insurance when dealing with real estate then I would go no further than Geoff and Bobbie.

-Erin Matthews


I have known Geoff since 1992 when he was the agent my company chose to help me find a home in Ottawa coming from Edmonton. It was a miserably hot July 1 summer day and he patiently showed us many houses. We drove from end to end of the city and burbs in his Oldsmobile Cutlass. We bought our first in Katimavik. A few years later Geoff sold that house for us and helped us move into a larger home. And on and on until we had completed 6 buy or sell transactions with Geoff.

We have moved to Pittsburgh, Seattle and Charlotte NC since and have relied on Geoff and Bobbie to find us a good ReMax agent in each of those cities. I have referred my sister and friends to Geoff over the years and would not hesitate to recommend him again. He is honest and one of the hardest working people I know. And when he is not working he is a scratch golfer, bass player in a rock band, a pilot and a husband and father.

But if you play golf with him be prepared for a long game because he carries two phones and a pager.

The thorough service, depth of experience, sound judgement and hard work offered without reservation by Geoff McGowan of Re/Max Affiliates Realty in expediting the purchase of a house for us in the Kanata region June 2016 was extraordinary. This was much appreciate as we were not only moving to a new city but also returning from abroad. This helped make the transition back to Canada both enjoyable and successful. We highly recommend his services.

Geoff – thank you for your patience, your honesty and your oh-so vast knowledge – great advice and thank you sincerely for not being pushy. You are just amazing at what you do!

We loved working with this team, we moved from B.C. To Ottawa. We had never been to Ottawa and only had a week to find a house. We had such amazing support, and Stephen spent the whole week showing us around, showing us houses and educating us on the neighbourhoods.
These guys went above and beyond and would highly recommend their team.

Kudos and many thanks to a most impressive team! First offer was received within seven days of listing and that one resulted in SOLD shortly after. Extremely experienced, utmost professional, and super friendly, Geoff and Steve worked at all hours to ensure a smooth process. Thanks also to the dedicated team behind the scenes taking care of marketing, open houses, and coordinating visits. Well done to Patricia from Capital Home Staging and Design – her services made a huge difference. The Geoff & Bobbie McGowan team were highly recommended to me and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to others.
