“If you are seeking a true professional in the real estate industry for yourself or for executive staff, look no further. In April 2018 our family of five was relocating from Australia to Ottawa and needed to find suitable rental accommodation very quickly. As we needed a home to be available upon arrival, we couldn’t physically view any of the homes which we sought. However, in under 6 weeks, we arrived in Canada and had secured an executive home which perfected aligned to our needs. How did we do this? Partnering with one amazing real estate agent. To put context to this feat achieved by Nick, we had a pretty long list of ‘must have’s’ including meeting a cleanliness standard of minimal carpets for an asthmatic child. Nick has been, without any exaggeration, the most professional and extraordinary real estate person we have ever dealt with. His customer service skills or communication could not be faulted by any means. He answered our emails (which were of course not aligned to the Canada working day) expeditiously, and helped us understand the local paperwork process. When we asked Nick to view other homes, he was honest about their shortcomings against our key requirements (ie traffic noise, cleanliness etc), and replied very quickly after seeking them. His honesty from the first conversation allowed us to trust him with such a big investment decision. I cannot thank Nick enough for making (an otherwise stressful overall process) extremely easy. His friendly nature, and attention to detail, and professionalism are truly an asset. If I was selling, buying or renting, I would strongly recommend working with Nick, as he is 100% working for you. I doubt you will be disappointed if you partner with Nick.”

“Buying our first home was pretty intimidating, but because we were working with Nick, we had so much confidence by the time we made our final decision. He was extremely patient while we hummed and hawed at dozens of viewings, was quick to respond when we sent him postings at all hours, reassured us that the right home was out there for us and, when that house came along, Nick made the buying process an absolute breeze. In Ottawa’s current busy market, I think it’s a testament to Nick’s skills that we got the first house on which we put an offer. I would recommend Nick to anyone looking for a friendly, professional, reliable and knowledgeable Real Estate Agent. Thanks for helping our family find our first home, Nick! ”

“I have been very fortunate to have Nick as my agent. He is very easy to get along with. He helped me throughout the whole process and never made me feel pressured. He negotiates like no other in an effort to get the best deal for you. He is a true professional and quite knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him to all. Thank you Nick for everything! ”
“My husband and I started our home search while still living in the United Arab Emirates. While we were outside Canada, we did not encounter many Realtors who were willing to accommodate inquiries about rental homes. Nick was an exception. Nick took the time to learn about our requirements and provided us with an easy line of communication where no email was left unanswered. Knowing we are new to the process, Nick made sure we prepared documents that may be required for the background checks. Nick scheduled viewings prior to our arrival and knowing that time was of the essence, we were already viewing homes the day after we arrived. His experience, patience and professionalism came to light even more during the negotiations that eventually lead us to securing the home of our choice. After having gone through this meticulous process, I honestly believe that Nick puts the best interest of his clients first above all. He has gone above and beyond in helping us find the perfect home where we would start our new life in Canada. I could not recommend him highly enough! ”

“I used Nick Blackburn as my Real Estate Agent and I highly recommend him. He came into my home and instantly made me feel at ease. He gave me great recommendations on what sellers are looking for and I gladly took his advice. He has an upbeat positive and professional attitude. My home sold very, very quickly and it went very smoothly. He then helped me find my new home and I am extremely happy. Thank you Nick for all your help and support throughout this whole process!”
“Nicolas Blackburn is the perfect example of a Realtor who actually cares about getting what’s best for his clients. Not only did he go out of his way to ensure we were happy, he treated us as friends, and ensured that the sale of our home was completed in a timely manner. Nick is extremely personable, dedicated to his clients, and hard working; an absolute professional in his domain! It was a great pleasure working with Nick, and we would highly recommend him to anyone that needs assistance in buying or selling a home.”

“As a first time home buyer, this process initially seemed daunting. Nick was an excellent Realtor – he always made time for me, day or night, and really listened to what I was looking for. He made my first home purchase an enjoyable experience, particularly in Ottawa’s current fast paced housing market. You are certainly in good hands with Nick, and I highly recommend him. Thank you Nick!!”
“Being experienced home buyers, Doug and I were looking for a Realtor who would put our needs first, who would listen to us and get to know us. We found those traits in Nicolas Blackburn. Nicolas helped us move through the maze of listings focussing on those that met our “must have items” which allowed us to use our time efficiently. Within only a few weeks of working with Nicolas, we made a offer on a house that now feels like our longtime home. He also helped us with the logistics of finding a capable and efficient mortgage broker, lawyer, and home inspector. Even after the papers were signed and keys transferred, Nicolas continued to ensure we were completely happy and provided superb post-purchase support. If you are looking for someone who will put you first, listen carefully to your needs and who will lead you successfully to your new home, Nicolas Blackburn is your only choice”

“As a first time home owner Nick’s knowledge and experience were invaluable to me in finding my first home. I never felt rushed or pressured and felt he genuinely cared about me finding the right home for me. He was always available for questions or to bounce ideas off of. He was great in negotiating the price of the home and getting a few extras thrown in. You’re in good hands with Nick. Thanks Nick!”
“Nicolas provided me with an amazing service throughout the process. He was there every step of the way to help secure the property I was about acquiring. He was available all the time. He was always quick to reply to email, to return my calls and was great at picking up the phone to ensure understanding. Issues were addressed quickly and all the details taken care of efficiently. He was friendly, attentive, responsive, proactive and very thorough in every aspect of the process. This helped to take stress away. He researched information about the properties I viewed or was interested in and gave me feedback after each viewing for me to make informed decision. Did I say he was very professional? Nicolas ensured that my interests were front and centre in all negotiations. He suggested options to me and answered my questions. He was very knowledgeable, human and respectful. Nicolas is a stress-free Realtor. I could not have asked for better representation. He made the whole process painless for me. Thanks Nicolas, it was a pleasure working with you.”

“Our experience with Nicolas Blackburn as our Realtor for the purchase of our investment condo was very positive. He is very knowledgeable and helpful. Very patient and understanding. He negotiated the price for us and also helped us out with finding a lawyer. We did not feel rushed with Nicolas and he made sure that we were comfortable and happy with the decisions we made. He was always available by phone or email. We are happy to have worked with him during this condo purchase. He is great, we highly recommend him. Thank you Nick :)”
Anjeza S. & Olger S.
“Nicolas is a superb Realtor. I did not make it easy for Nicolas to sell my home. I made some requests with regard to the conditions that I required to sell my home. My “demands” may have seemed eccentric but they were important to me; therefore they became important to Nick. I joked with Nick that I was going to see his true sales talent if he could get my house sold under the circumstances that I presented. Guess What? He did it, Nick actually got my house sold.”
“From the very start Nick went above and beyond what we could have expected from a real estate agent. We are moving from Montreal to Ottawa. He offered to take us ‘site seeing’ in some neighbourhoods, to get a feel for them. Then when the search was officially on he was available to us on weekends. We spent many a Saturday with Nick, rain or shine. He gave us good solid information regarding areas and the houses. It was somewhat culture shock for us with the difference in houses and lot sizes from what we had. Nick was ever so patient and understanding. He wanted us to be comfortable and have the right house. Once the choice was made he was fierce. He negotiated the price we wanted and with many extras. He is amazing. He also surrounds himself with other great people that he can refer you to; real estate lawyer, mortgage specialist and home inspectors. He never rushed us and suggested that we talk with a reference person for any questions we had since the process is a little different between provinces. That helped put our mind at ease as well. He was always available to us by phone or email. Nick is very honest, hard working, dedicated and was always watching out for our best interests. We consider ourselves extremely lucky to have met Nick and to have worked with him during this big change for us. We would not hesitate to recommend him.”

“Nicolas Blackburn was both our buying and selling Realtor. Working with him was very enjoyable and also a good learning experience! He is very knowledgeable and a hard worker who doesn’t let anything slip by. At the busiest times we would be in contact several times a day, either by phone or e-mail. He always followed through on anything discussed. His good nature meshed well with ours and we spent a lot of time laughing; our visits were relaxed and we followed his recommendations/ explanations. We miss the “Gentle Giant” and are already recommending him to people we know.”
