When coming to Ottawa in 2019 we chose to work with Laurie by the recommendation of a friend. Being a Military family, we have worked with several agents in the past. Laurie has been the best agent we have had. When it came time to sell, the obvious choice was to use Laurie again. In buying, she took the time to really understand the key points we wanted, and she won't let you buy anything beneath her own quality standards. In selling, she was honest about the market situation and gave practical advice that resulted in a very advantages sale. There is also the BGM team that is always available for any detail you need, if in the rare occurrence Laurie, doesn't do it for you. In either side of the real estate transaction, Laurie will look after you, and ensure you are happy with the result. - Nicole Chaffey

Amazing! Laurie was fantastic from start to finish - giving us advice on how to stage our home for maximum effect, coaching us on the suggested listing price as well as helping us navigate the multitude of offers our (and her!) efforts garnered! She was very quick to respond to any question that we had and made our experience as fun and stress-free as possible. We would not hesitate to recommend Laurie and the rest of her team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Ottawa area. - Melanie F

Reply: Thanks so much Johanne! Send me a pic of the water when you get to your incredible new place!
Laurie helped us buy a house in Orleans in 2007. 14 years later she helped us sell that same house. She is friendly, professional, and a great listener. She got the job done in trying times and went the extra mile to ensure we got an extremely satisfactory outcome. Fantastic service! Would highly recommend her. - Pamela Fawcett
Reply: Thank you Pam & Fern. Truly honoured you called me after all those years!
Laurie and her team did an exceptional job. Research was first class, identification of homes in our selected zone. We moved to Ontario during Covid 19 in July 2020 and with all the challenges that caused, had to make a purchase on the first home we looked at in less than 30 minutes. That said, Laurie represented us well. Laurie came highly recommended by another agent we used previously in another province. - Janet Crowther
Reply: Wasn’t that crazy?! Thank you both for the trust!
Laurie is by far the best agent I have ever worked with. Very friendly, honest and knowledgeable about many different types of properties. Very quick on responding to e-mails and texts. Always keeps an eye for properties that may interest you. Gave great advise and guidance on the selling of our property. Would highly recommend Laurie for anyone looking to buy or sell! - Ryan C
Reply: Thank you both! Can’t wait for the first gathering around the fire Pit!

Laurie is the BEST! She always had our back with fast replies, was able to get us everything we wanted on budget, wouldn't let us compromise and she did all of this in an extremely intense market. We feel extremely well taken care of. - Kerianne & Goran - Kerianne
Reply: So happy to hear that and hope you are enjoying all the walks from your new digs!
Laurie was a pleasure to work with. We'd been looking for our forever home for just over a year and half, and we had specific requirements in what we were looking for. Laurie was extremely patient with us and did not allow us to compromise, though we were sometimes tempted to. She's extremely honest, trustworthy, hardworking and a blast to hang out with when checking out properties. We'd absolutely recommend Laurie to any of our friends and family. - M-P & Mat
Reply: So glad you found the best place! What a ride it was 😊 Miss hanging out with you both!
Laurie was great to work with during our hunt for our forever home in a difficult market (i.e., seller’s market). She was helpful, straightforward, and knowledgeable. Any time we needed to communicate with her she was responded in a quick and efficient manner. She understood what type of property we were looking for, and would set up showings for us on fairly short notice at times. I would definitely recommend Laurie as a realtor to anyone looking to buy and/or sell a house in the Ottawa area. - Vicki
Reply: Thank you Vicki! Hope you are enjoying that fabulous sunroom and yard!
Laurie Gagnier is exceptionally knowledgeable, responsive, caring and was the perfect agent to help us navigate this currently challenging and unpredictable market. We always felt that Laurie had our best interests in mind. As a buyer, Laurie helped us to find our dream house in our dream neighbourhood. As a seller, she made the process as stress free as possible. She gave clear guidance on how to best increase our chances for selling at our asking price. Our house sold quickly and at list price. Would recommend Laurie without hesitation. - Michelle Alfieri
Reply: Thank you Michelle! Hope you are enjoying that awesome house!
Laurie is a straight shooter with a keen eye for details. She will let you know if you should to avoid a property or area based on her in-depth knowledge of the area, market, and builders. Laurie was very patient with us given the market conditions (low inventory & COVID), and was willing to put in aggressive offers despite a seller's market to get us what we want. We would highly recommend her services! - Sophie K & David H.
Reply: Thank you so much! Your kind words mean a great deal.
As always, Laurie and her team have been nothing short of extraordinary, especially given the Covid situation. We have entrusted our real estate needs to BGM for over a decade and will continue to do so. Merci! - Nathalie Rochon
Laurie is very knowledgeable and honest. She is very aware of market conditions and ensures that clients have realistic expectations. She did her homework and came in with a strategy that worked perfectly. I would highly recommend Laurie and the rest of the BGM Real Estate Team!!! - Mark
Laurie helped us buy our condo and was available and responsive when we had renno questions related to resale. When it came time to sell, she came over and advised us what to finish, then helped stage for the sale. We listed and sold the next day! - David Tucker
Laurie was very patient, good humoured and extremely knowledgeable. If we had any questions she would respond very quickly I was beginning to wonder if she ever slept. In the throes of the final negotiation she provided a realistic perspective. I will certainly recommend her to my friends and family. - Frank Duggan
You can tell that she loves what she is doing. She was great to work with. She made the process very easy for us especially during this difficult time. We would highly recommend her to our friends and family:) Thank you from Ann Jeremy Lily and Jiggs - Jeremy Dawson

Laurie was incredibly patient with us, and always responded quickly to questions and concerns. She saved us from buying homes that had hidden issues and helped us land the perfect one! - Elena Sherwood
To say that I am impressed is an understatement. Laurie made the entire process of buying a home as painless as a multi-hundred-thousand-dollar purchase could be. Her extensive knowledge and connections meant that she was able to find us the right mortgage broker, the right lawyer, and the right inspectors for our new home. She coordinated everything for us flawlessly! Thank you Laurie! - Sean Sullivan
Reply: You are too kind sir! I know where to go for good coffee now ;)
Laurie was fantastic. She had excellent recommendations to stage the place we were selling. She had a great network of people that can help with any repair you may need, and for making sure the property you are purchasing won't cause any problems. Laurie is extremely responsive any day of the week at any time of the day - W

It was a pleasure working with Laurie Gagnier once again! Laurie always goes over and beyond your expectations! Professional, humorous, responsive, knowledgeable not only about the housing market but all its related components. With Laurie you not only find a house but a home. Couldn't have done it without you, Laurie! Wonderful experience! I highly recommend her!, - Mara Indri
Laurie was recommended by multiple friends and during the interview it was clear she matched with us. She was very honest and her experience and support team allowed us to buy an amazing house in a great neighbourhood in less than a week. We will be selling with her as well in the future. Her real feedback was very accurate and was knowledgeable regarding builders and neighbourhoods. It is easy to fall in love with pictures on a website, Laurie quickly commented on better and best properties and saw through the pictures. She was our best realtor yet and this is our 5th purchase. - Adam Beaver
Laurie was our agent when we bought our home and we knew, without a doubt, that she would be our agent when it came time to sell. She walked us through the entire process, explained the market trends in our area, and gave us great staging advice for our home. If we could take Laurie and her team with us wherever we get posted - WE WOULD!!! I have recommended Laurie to many friends moving to the Ottawa region, and will continue to do so. Her professionalism and integrity are beyond question, and her straight-shooter way of dealing with us was amazing! She and her team deserve 6 out of 5 stars. This is the realtor and team you need!!! - Mary Ferguson-Janes
5 Stars are not enough to tell you how AMAZING Laurie is to work with. About 7 years ago, I interviewed 10 realtors and the person who was in second place didn't even come close! Laurie's 'straight shooter' personality was a fit for us and her attention to detail and lighting fast response time is what makes her stand out to trust her with the most expensive purchase of our lives. The added bonuses are that Laurie has an amazing team, from Catherine the coordinating master and Jeff who was a great back up when Laurie was away. You also get Laurie's very well screened network of referrals to experts (inspector, mortgage, HVAC, carpet guy, painter etc...). You won't be disappointed choosing the BGM team!! - Sharon
Laurie is an amazing agent! I am relocating from Toronto to Ottawa and this wonderful woman over three days drove from Constance Bay, to Carp, to Almont, to Black's Corners, to Russell, to Greely, to Osgoode, to Kanata and all parts in between & sometimes back again - to help me find the a perfect house!! She's extremely knowledgeable and her recommendations for trades people are just as excellent as she is. I highly recommend Laurie as she made my purchasing experience super easy and very efficient. PS - I chose Laurie based on her other clients feedback on this site. - Nicole Franc
Fabulous team. Laurie was realistic and helpful in searching for homes. Her cantor and sense of humour made the process enjoyable. On the sale side of the equation she was a total professional, very accommodating of our travel schedule and well organized so we did not have to worry about a thing. We sold in 6 days! - Heather Landry
We have never been happy with realtors we have used in the past. Laurie has changed all that for us. I would highly, highly recommend her to anyone. So responsive, professional, knowledgeable and genuine in wanting to find us what WE want. She's fabulous! (And Jeff was a super back-up while she was away :) - Jacki Leroux
Buying our new home in Ottawa was an incredible experience, thanks to Laurie. Her confidence, knowledge, and great sense of humour allowed us to have a lot of fun buying a house in this hot market. We came away from the experience feeling like we were well informed and most importantly we found our dream home. Thank you Laurie, we couldn’t have done it without you! - Kim and Mackenzie
We couldn't have been happier with Laurie. Knowledgeable, affable, and determined to make sure that we found a house that we could be comfortable and confident in, we would strongly recommend the team to anyone looking for a top notch realtor. - Todd and Karen Murphy
There are not enough words to express how awesome an experience we've had with Laurie and her team. Amazingly efficient, responsive, knowledgeable, thoughtful, funny, down to earth, quick, warm and friendly are a few. Laurie made us feel like family or close friends; she was that invested in finding the perfect home for us. I would highly recommend Laurie and her team. - Mandy George
For the past few months, over emails and phone calls, Laurie has been patiently helping us SUCCESSFULLY finding our dream home! We had a very LONG list of must haves, that seemed nearly impossible to fulfill, but Laurie pulled it off! In other words, she understood so well what we wanted that if we would have built our house, it would look identical to the one we bought. She also recommended a team of highly professional inspectors and lawyer (the best we have ever worked with over many moves) to inspect with a fine tooth comb every inch of our new property, making us at ease with the biggest purchase of our life. Finally, Laurie is extremely EFFICIENT: responsive, attentive to every clients needs, and make you feel like you are her only client, even though she is dealing with many others at the same time. We strongly recommend her!!! - Michele S.
If there were 10 stars Laurie and her team should get this, from Laurie to Catherine to the dispatcher for showings they were absolutely a delight to work with and really took care of me, I would recommend them to anyone buying or selling!!! BZ to you all and I wish you the best. - Dana Buckley
To say I am impressed with Laurie Gagnier's service, is an understatement. Laurie's "Down to Earth" Personality, her ability make you feel at ease during stressful times, and her in-depth knowledge of current trends in the Ottawa Real Estate market, make her a true professional amount her peers. It is very evident that Laurie is in this line of work for the rewards of helping families vs. simply trying to make a deal happen for profits. 100% recommend this team! Thank again Laurie!! Norm & Leslie - Norm Leger
There was nothing I could complain about, Laurie is dependable, supportive very knowledgeable honest, ask a question she had the answer and if she didn't she would find out right away. Highly recommended her she won't disappoint you. - Donna
Laurie is honest, considerate, and compassionate. Within the time constraints of a military house hunting trip, Laurie discovered what we needed and wanted in our new home. She found us a home which exceeded our expectations and we signed an agreement within 48 hours of landing in the city! What an amazing experience! I recommend Laurie to all our friends and family :) - Sara Dobbin
