seamless relocation to Ottawa

It was a big step for us to move to Ottawa, we hardly knew anyone. We contacted a few Real Estate agents, and Rebecca was the first one to respond. It became very clear to us from the beginning, that she was going to work hard for us. She gave us courteous and professional service, along with lightning speed responses to our questions. She patiently walked us through numerous houses, and never pushed us to make a decision. She genuinely cared for our best interests. If you need a home that’s right for you, Rebecca is the one to help!

Finding the right home for us

I just wanted to express my appreciation for your assistance in finding a home in Ottawa. While having spent a fair bit of time in Ottawa over the years, I did not know the housing market or many of the neighborhoods and options available. Your patience and persistence as we experienced different types of housing and communities in and around Ottawa was instrumental in finding the home for us. If ever we were to move again in the Ottawa area, I would certainly call on your services.

dedicated and friendly service

As we are approaching the happy conclusion of our adventure, I wanted to take a minute to thank you for your dedicated and friendly service. While selling my own house proved longer and slightly more difficult than we all envisaged, you remained focused and provided helpful guidance and wise advice throughout the entire process until our goal was reached. You certainly went the extra mile to find information, arrange visits and make the experience as painless as it possibly can be! Your great patience and sense of humour certainly did enhance the proceedings. You can rest assured that I will gladly and unreservedly provide your name to anyone looking for an agent and, who knows, I may call you back again in a few years!

wealth of experience, professionalism, and unlimited optimism

Recently our home was sold after one day on the market. We received excellent and generous help from Barb Keen along with her daughter Rebecca in the staging of our home. Barb has such a wealth of experience, professionalism, and unlimited optimism. We greatly appreciated her quick response to our enquiries and concerns. We were extremely fortunate that 33 years after Barb was our agent in the purchase of our current home, she was again available to provide us with her expertise in the selling of this home. Having the Keen Team in your corner is very reassuring.

offer during our first open house!

I lived alone in Barrhaven and was looking to downsize.  I received a card in the mail from Barbara Keen for a free home evaluation. That was a year before I actually decided to sell my home. Throughout that year, Barbara was on the lookout for my next home. She sent me emails and links to places for sale that she thought met with my criteria and when my criteria changed, she helped accommodate there too. Barbara always offered up her professional and honest opinion. When I finally found my next house, she was there and my  offer was promptly accepted and the paperwork completed quickly and efficiently. Next, she guided me through the renovation stages and packing stages of the home I needed to sell. She even chose and brought me paint samples for walls, trim and doors. Barbara and her daughter, Rebecca, brought some of their own items into my home for staging purposes and rearranged furniture to give my home that “model home” look and feel. A photographer was hired and the house was placed on the market. We had an offer during our only open house. My home sold within 8 days of being listed on the market! Thank you Barbara for guiding me through this process from beginning to end and no matter what, always smiling and having patience!  I love my new home.

Great attention to detail

My wife and I have used the services of the Keen Team three times already. First in 2006 when we moved from Edmonton to Ottawa and in 2016 to sell a house and buy our current home. On every occasion, Barbara took the time to understand what we wanted in a home, our budget and selected only houses that would fit those criteria. Attention to details meant that we could focus on houses that were within our reach.  Another interesting approach was to involve our daughter to make the house selection more a family affair. As a selling agents, Barbara and Rebecca ensured we got top dollars and gave us sound advice on every offers submitted. Working with the Keen Team is like taking a load off your shoulders when it comes to making one of the most important purchase you can do and we ended up with a place we can call home, not just a street address.

thorough and realistic

I met Rebecca in May, 2017.  She had been recommended by a family friend.  I engaged her to assist in selling my mother’s house, as my mother had moved into a retirement community, but was no longer able to manage her affairs.  Rebecca  was very thorough and realistic in her assessment of the property, and had excellent suggestions.  She listed the house promptly.  It sold in one day and well over asking price! I am very thankful for her help, and would recommend Rebecca to anyone!

A big and heartfelt THANK YOU!

a team you can count on

The house officially closed a few hours ago.  Mike and I wanted to thank you and your mom for all of the assistance in selling our home. We also wanted to thank you for being available for all of the appointments with the new home owners. We will definitely recommend you to our family and friends

We never felt pressure

Thanks so much, Rebecca!  We’ve said many times how fortunate we are to have you as our Realtor. We never felt pressure from you and you always acted on our requests.  We are gradually getting settled and enjoying our new home!

knowledge of the market

We met Rebecca years ago when we were looking to sell my in-laws condo and she won us over right away with her knowledge of the market. She came prepared with local pricing and statistics as well as ideas for staging. More importantly, she came with patience and took the time to explain to both my husband and I as well as my in-laws what to expect throughout the process. To this day my mother-in-law still asks after the lovely young woman who sold their home and to this day she remains my first choice and recommendation to all my friends and family who are thinking of buying or selling a house or condo.

sold in less than a day!

Thank you for selling our house in less than a day! Rebecca and Barbara made a great team, they staged the house beautifully and took care of all the little details. They were the reason we had multiple offers the same day the house went on the market.

When we went to buy a house, Rebecca and Barbara took the time to understand what we were looking for. We visited multiple houses and when we found the one that was for us, they ensured that our bid succeeded. It is a lovely home that works well for our family.

got one more than one good offer

Barbara was the realtor we chose to work with to sell my mother’s condominium.  Mom was being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, and had an urgent need to change her housing situation.  Thankfully, Barbara understood this and proceeded accordingly.  She was a patient guide through the whole process.  Within a couple of weeks, we ended up getting more than one good offer, and we got very close to our asking price.  She would be an asset to anyone needing to sell or buy property.
