This was our second time we have had the opportunity to work with Marc Parenteau and we are as satisfied this time around as the first one. His level of real state knowledge, coupled with his meticulous advise for home staging, and suggestions of home pricing at the height of the Ontario House Market, makes Marc an amazing real state agent who wants nothing but success for his clients. - Carlos Esquivel

Thank you Marc for making the selling process so easy for us! Marc walked us through the process step by step and offered sound advice at every turn -- from identifying a solid sales strategy to staging suggestions. As landlords selling an investment property, we wanted to get the best sale as possible but we were also very concerned about inconveniencing our tenants, especially during COVID-19. Marc took the reins and worked closely with not only us, but also with our tenants (yes!) to answer their questions, suggest mutually convenient showing times, and provide them with reassurance about the safety measures that he and his real estate colleagues had put in place during these unprecedented times. Not only is Marc great at what he does, but he's also a super nice and genuine guy. Recommending Marc is easy! Thanks again for your great work and amazing results. We are very grateful for making this such an easy process for all of us :) - Kristin & Eric

In the brief time I worked with Marc to sell my condo, which sold in 6 hours, he was professional and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him to anyone thinking of selling their home. If in the future I decide to purchase another home I will contact Marc - GP

We really enjoyed our experience working with Marc. He is incredibly knowledgeable and was attentive to our needs as first-time home buyers. He was very thorough and detailed at each showing and helped us understand the finer details of bidding and closing. Marc is very responsive, professional and personable and always put his client's needs first. I would highly recommend Marc as an agent for anyone looking to purchase in Ottawa. - Janessa B

Marc is an outstanding agent! Incredibly knowledgeable, extremely professional, yet so grounded and down to earth that he can naturally build connections with anyone. Marc listened attentively to our needs, demonstrated compassion towards our concerns, yet moved us all forward with such a sense of unwavering positivity and optimism that was contagious! We have sold several higher end properties in Ottawa with previous agents but now that we found Marc would never use or recommend anyone else. As a former professional footballer Marc knows what it takes to be at the top of one’s game and today, when it comes to selling real estate while ensuing a positive experience for all, he is definitely the MVP! - Kevin and Emma Morgan

Marc provided us with outstanding service, and he was always prompt to get back to us when asked questions, took the time to explained and guide us every step of the way. As for the result, we secured an offer way above the asking price in less than 12 hours. He never hesitated to work long hours or late to ensure the deal well carries without any mistakes. I am in the military, and he is well aware of any BGRS rule and provided expert guidance. I would recommend him to anyone without any hesitation. Thank you so much, Marc. - Cari Tremblay

Marc was great to work with. He was always available and prompt with communication. Marc went well out of his way to make things easy for us, and we always felt like he had our own interests as his priority. He was very knowledgeable on what we should be on the look out for when seeing houses, and had lots of industry connections like inspectors to get us in contact with. Marc was extremely helpful, open, transparent, and reliable through both the buying and the selling process. - Casey

Marc came very highly recommended by my inlaws who bought their house with him a few years ago. He did not disappoint! One of the hardest working people I've ever met, Marc really wowed us with his market knowledge and willingness to help us at any hour. Even when he was recovering from major medical procedures, he kept checking in to make sure we were well taken care of. This is someone who truly cares about his clients and does everything he can to make sure they have a great experience! - Mathew Molsberry

My wife and I purchased our home with Marc’s help in 2019 and we didn’t hesitate to contact him again when we decided we were going to purchase another property in the area. Marc’s professionalism and comprehensive knowledge of real estate are obvious and with his easy-going amicable nature, it was an easy choice to make in depending on him a second time. As an example of his dedication to his clients; he even returned queries from us on his birthday! We will certainly be calling on him again in the future when it is time to sell our home. Thanks Marc! - B. Slaney

We were referred to Marc by a friend who Marc had helped find and purchase their first home a few years ago. As a first time home buyer with no experience looking at houses, Marc was extremely helpful in showing us all areas of concern with houses we went to view and even recommendations for renovations that could be done if we ended up getting the house. Before our first viewing, I thought the experience would be very uncomfortable not knowing anything about buying a house, what that process looks like and my expectations of the house I wanted. When we went to our first viewing with Marc, he did not make me feel like I knew nothing, he freely guided us through the house and answered any and all questions that we had about the buying process and what to expect once we did buy and start living in our own home. Once we did successfully get an offer accepted on our new home, Marc sent us a follow up email a month before closing to remind us of some important things to remember to get set up for our new place, including contact information and URLs for utility companies. Overall Marc made this experience a great one! Thank you, Marc! - KO

Marc helped us find a rental in a very short period of time when we moved to Ottawa several years ago. It was a stressful time, but he made the whole experience much easier. Over the next few years, I emailed him a few times out of the blue with questions about the current housing market, and he always took the time to respond thoughtfully. When we started considering buying a home in the middle of the pandemic this year, we reached out to Marc again. Sometimes people change once they are more established and successful in their business. But with Marc, we felt that he was still genuine, helpful, and honest even years later. We were right, and it was another exceptionally positive experience for us. Sure, there were a couple of hiccups along the way, and Marc can't predict everything, but he was always willing to listen and guide us to the best of his ability and knowledge. He remained patient, prompt, and professional from the beginning to the end. We would certainly connect with him again if we ever need to sell/buy. - Claire

Marc helped us buy condos and he was always available and ready to take us on property visits. He was very knowledgeable about the locations, buildings, inclusions, condo fees of the condos we had an interest in, offering valuable advice that saved us plenty of time and energy. He was very patient, answered all of our questions, and helped us immensely with the negotiation strategy. I will most definitely do business with Marc again. - Louis

Marc is the best agent I have ever had. Marc is very knowledgeable and up to date on his listings. I would never use another agent. Marc was very accommodating as we worked long hours and had small children. When we had our inspection Marc even played with the children so we could walk around and talk with the inspector. No greater agent. - Caroline Prezio

We were looking for the perfect home in the west end of Ottawa while living in Toronto so it was important we had a hands on agent. Marc was awesome, he was on top of the multiple changes in our search criteria’s and once I came to Ottawa to see homes, Marc was great at scheduling viewings right away. He is very knowledgeable - it was great being able to focus on looking at the house (with my husband on video chat in Toronto) because I knew Marc was checking for any issues (windows, cracks etc). I would %100 recommend Marc! - Ameenah & Khaled

Marc was incredible. Professional, polite, humble, patient, kind, approachable, and understanding, everything our family needed to make our sale and purchase the easiest experience it could have been. We had such anxiety about what this market would bring, but he knew exactly what to do with our home, and not only got us the home of our dreams, but managed to get us multiple offers on our home with almost six figures above asking as our final closing one in less than a week of it being on the market. He was incredible. He's a family man with a game plan, and we couldn't recommend anyone more! - Andrew Wesley

Marc helped us sell our townhome in Stittsville. We had purchased a single home new build in the summer of 2019 to be completed in the fall of 2020. We never imagined that this meant we would end up selling our townhome in the middle of a pandemic. Marc was very professional and responsive to our many questions on selling a home, especially during these unprecedented times. He provided reassurance and consistently remaind transparent and honest in the process. In the end we sold for significantly more than we had imagined. We're extremely happy with the services and results he provided. We would recommend him to anyone purchasing or selling a home! - Jonah and Melanie

This was our second time using Marc to help us find our home and we are so glad he was able to help not only find our dream house but also helped us sell our old one. He is very patient and was able to answer all our questions and help guide us through this stressful process. We love that he also points out little things that we didn't think to look at. He also provided great referrals for inspector and legal services. Marc is professional, always ready to help his clients, super responsive, and easy to work with. He goes out of his way to make things easy and make everything go and smoothly as possible. I would definitely recommend Marc to anyone looking to buy or sell a house! - A & T

Even though the market was very hot and houses were being snatched up quickly Marc kept a cool and professional demeanor all the while giving us sound advice and providing us with a thorough walk-through that made us feel as if we were actually in the home. We were extremely pleased with our experience with Marc and highly recommend seeking out his services if you plan on buying or selling property. - Danny Brathwaite

We initially asked Marc to help us find a new home with more space for our needs. Marc spent a considerable amount of time researching and showing us many homes that we're appealing to us; pointing out things we never would have thought of or noticed. He was an asset to our journey at buying a home. Although our situation changed and we ended up selling our current home before finding our next, Marc's professionalism and understanding made it a pleasant experience. We will still count on Marc's hardwork, dedication, and down to earth demenor to help us find our next dream home! Thank you Marc! - Timothy Greer

A tireless performer he reset the bar in our area but getting us a substantial increase to our sell price from what we bought for. What an amazing experience to have him as an agent. We have relocated across the country on multiple occasions and Marc has been the most professional, honest and dedicated agent we have ever had. Thanks Marc! - Brett Perry

Marc was referred to us by a mutual friend 2 years ago. She insisted that we would like him immediately and that he would suit our requirements, she was right! Upon our first meeting with Marc, we found him to be professional, knowledgeable and calm. After a lengthy 2 year search, Marc assisted us with buying a new home and selling our current home. During this time, Marc demonstrated great patience. Whenever we would call him to schedule a home viewing, he would act promptly to make it happen. While we knew that Marc was busy with many other clients, he always made us feel like we were his top priority. Once we had made our purchase, it was time to act quickly to get our house ready to list. Marc assisted us with staging and photos. Our house sold quickly in an uncertain market and we were extremely pleased with our final sale price. Marc always stayed optimistic and calm throughout the process. Overall we were very happy and appreciative with Marc during our whole experience and would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. - Shawn and Kristy McLaughlin

As the market in Ottawa heats up, Marc was able to keep our temperament cool and give us helpful advice.

Marc was very professional and courteous. He listened to our needs/wants and showed us appropriate properties. Marc was great about advising us on a good area and what was fair pricing for the property for sale. He genuinely cared that my mother purchased the property that was right for her. When there was an issue at closing he was right there with providing contacts and checked in with us even when on his vacation. Would recommend Marc to anyone looking to purchase a property. He truly cares about his clients not just sales. This is the second time we have worked with Marc. He is not at all pushy and is very patient. We worked with him for over a year long distance to find the right home for us as we were relocating cities. His advice was extremely valuable as we didn't know areas. We are very happy in our home and the location of it. - Karin

He went out of his way time and time again, always with a bright smile and cheery demeanour. Marc is extremely knowledgeable, and honest. I would recommend him to anyone interested in selling or buying, he makes what can be a stressful process an enjoyable one. I could go on and on with wonderful things to say about our experience and time spent with Marc, because he is just that great at what he does and who he is as a person. - Jessica Ross

We were immediately at ease with Marc. He had challenges dealing with the two of us from two different cities as we were preparing to come on our house hunting trip, including last minute changes to areas of the city in which we were looking. He handled them all with grace and humour, and helped reduce our concerns along with our stress. Once we arrived in Ottawa, we were immediately comfortable with Marc. It was as if we had all known each other for years; making the entire process smoother and more fun. He understood what we were looking for, and where in the city would best fit. He showed us homes that made sense for our budget and lifestyle, and we were able to quickly narrow down our choices. Once we made an offer, he fought hard on our behalf to get us the best deal and we couldn’t be happier with our home. I feel like we gained a great home and a new friend. - Scott

I was a first time home buyer and had very little knowledge of this overwhelming market. Marc spent the time to go over the features I was looking for in a house and tailored the process to my interests. With each house that I saw, I felt comfortable discussing features that I liked or did not like, with no pressure. He was open and honest throughout the entire process, scheduling showings and meeting around my work schedule and answering any query I had. When I found my house, Marc was quick to get the negotiating process started, and stayed in constant communication with myself and the other professionals involved, making it a seamless process. Marc was professional, organized and personable throughout all of our dealings, kept the atmosphere very relaxed and open, and was always ready with a quirky anecdote or joke in the more stressful moments. I could not be happier with my new home and would recommend Marc 100% to anyone looking to find their new home - Cassie

Marc is a clear standout from the rest, literally, he is a really big guy!! I had the pleasure of first meeting Marc at an open house and he was the showing Agent. I had gone to this open house on a whim and was not really in the market for a new home, I instantly liked Marc and really connected with him as he came across very genuine and trust worthy. Marc asked if I had representation and if not he would be happy to help me find my next home if and when I was ready (no pressure). Well I took him up on that offer and couldn’t be happier that I did!!! Over the course of the following year and a half Marc work tirelessly catering to my ever changing wish list of what I wanted in a home and locations of where I wanted to settle. There were times where I would message him 4 or 5 times in a week to go see different houses and at the drop of a hat he would make the arrangements (anything from new builds, private sales, country homes to Condo’s) The thing that stood out most to me was at each home he took me to, he really paid attention to what appealed to me and he always had my best interests at heart. There were countless times he pointed out items I never would have known to think of (up coming construction, neighborhood issues/ background, foundation issues, structural damages, quality of craftsmanship, builder reputation, general wear and tear on home and appliances, the list goes on and on). This level of attention to detail and only settling for the absolute best for me is what separates Marc from the highly concentrated sea of Real Estate Agents out there. I really felt like over my time working with Marc the dynamic went from being my Agent to becoming my friend. When Marc’s tireless journey to finding the “right one” for our family finally came to an end (because he found the gem), it was a little bittersweet as it meant we wouldn’t be seeing him on a regular basis anymore. I think my mom who came to a lot of the showings took it the hardest as she loved joking around with Marc!! I have told anyone I know in the market for a house “I got the guy for you” and say that with full confidence as Marc truly deserves all the praise he receives. Since the purchase of my home I have received countless check-ins to ensure everything is going well, Christmas Cards and a present for the family, Home and Garden show tickets, Red Black tickets and congratulations on the anniversary of your home. Besides having amazing success in the CFL, I truly believe Marc has found his calling as the number one Agent in Ottawa. Thanks for all that you have done Marc!!! - Vincent ross

Always professional, Marc always kept his words. He was punctual, cordial, knowledgeable, flexible, understanding, and did not rush to close a sale. He contacted us to check on us when he found out we were in the area affected by the tornado. Truly caring. He already has my next business. - Ray

We have had the pleasure of working with Marc on two occasions. The first time was when we bought our 1st home. He strategically suggested a location which promised to gain value since he knew we planned to live there for only a few years. We relied on his expertise when it came time to sell and as planned we were able to quickly sell in an area that gained market value. He didn't stop there, he also found us a home in a great location which better suited our longterm goal. Thanks Marc! - Michael

Marc was always on time and never applied sales pressure. He wanted to ensure we were going to be satisfied with our outcome. Great guy!"  - Keith Landry

Marc Parenteau has provided me and my family (+ number of friends referred) with outstanding support and guidance during our efforts to sell our home in Kanata and in the search for the perfect bungalow for the foreseeable future. Marc's advisement on valuation, staging and house repairs resulted in a sale within my desired range. Marc was clearly willing to go above and beyond to find us our new home to the point of canvasing a particular area to seek additional opportunities that were not on the market for sale. His counsel on what to look for in aging houses and strong recommendation for inspection was invaluable. Marc is the embodiment of a skilled, experienced and dedicated Real Estate agent with his client’s best interests in mind. I have and will again refer him to friends, family and strangers alike. - Susan Sadler

Marc sold our home last year and after renting for a year, to see if we would like living in the city, Marc successfully found us the PERFECT home! We contacted Marc and within days he set up many viewings for us. We fell in love with the first home he showed us, but made sure we looked at everything before taking us back. He knew exactly what we needed, even though we weren't 100% sure ourselves. This is our second experience with Marc and it was as positive and easy as our first. Marc is an honest, knowledgeable and organized agent who will go above and beyond to find your perfect home! Thank you Marc!!!! - Tim and Erika

The reviews already on this page say it all. Marc is one of a kind. Down to earth, personable, professional, compassionate, reassuring, SO PATIENT. He goes above and beyond. We were first time home buyers with all that comes with that and he took it all in stride. His descriptor on his website is so true. He really cares about being your guide through home buying when you have no idea what you're doing. He's transparent and honest and like someone else said he really points out every aspect of the houses and what it will mean for your situation. The good the bad and the...very ugly (I made him see it all). He's super accessible and prompt. Reviews all paper work and liaisons between you and everyone. He is still helping us almost a month out from our purchase. I hope he's in business for the next 20 years so we can work together again. - Chris and Colleen Heywood

Marc was truly AMAZING with our purchase! He arrived at each showing with a printout of each property, but also included other pertinent details that are not otherwise included in a standard MLS listing. He guided us through each property with a clear intent to SHOW it to us, not SELL it to us - so he very candidly pointed out all of the features: good, bad, indifferent. Marc was also the perfect balance of aggressive and diplomatic when it came to working on our behalf - both leading into the sale, during the back-and-forth exchanges, and even well beyond the close of the sale when there were still a few items that needed to be sorted out. Marc is a true gentleman, a consummate professional, and SUPER accessible (despite the time of day, over the long weekend, or during his own family vacation) - he made sure that we were properly and thoroughly taken care of and our questions and concerns were addressed. - Cory & Julie

Marc was patient, professional, knowledgeable, and supportive throughout the entire process for us. We were on a tight timeline (wanted to get into a new house by the time school started for the kids) in a competitive, sellers' market, and Marc's guidance and expertise helped to calm and reassure us at what was a bit of a stressful time. We highly recommend Marc and would use him again in a heartbeat. (However, we love our house so much we don't see ourselves moving anytime soon!) - Steve and Erin Tierney

We can't recommend Marc highly enough! He had been recommended to us by our realtor in Victoria and he worked with us diligently and tirelessly during our short house-hunting trip to Ottawa, viewing countless properties. Not only did Marc always listen carefully to our needs and wants, but intuitively seemed to sense what area and style of house would suit us in our new situation. Marc answered questions we didn't even know we had and handled everything from start to finish with professionalism, good humour, and discretion. Buying a house can be very stressful and emotional, and Marc understands that completely. His support and consideration helped to alleviate that stress immeasurably! Trust is so important in an agent, and Marc earned ours 100%! - Rebecca & Larry Kostiuk

Despite the distance and time difference, he provided excellent service and knowledgeable advice at every step of the process which resulted in a quick and successful sale.

Marc was an outstanding realtor who provided us with insightful information on each house we saw. His meticulous awareness allowed us to consider all options when purchasing a home so that we could get what we really wanted instead of jumping into a decision we could possibly regret later on. He took the time to learn about what we were looking for, provided invaluable information about different locations and has in-depth knowledge about the real estate market. Thanks to him we found the dream home. - Carlos Esquivel

We are a military family who have moved all over Canada several times and have dealt with many realtors. Marc by far was the best realtor we have ever had. This time moving to Ottawa in such a hot sellers market was extremely challenging particularly because we were looking for a quick closing date. In just 3 days we saw 15 houses, before we found the house we knew we really wanted, and had to have. Marc waived his magic realtor wand, and we got that house! His knowledge, integrity, professionalism and ability to talk to clients in a way that is relevant to their specific circumstances make a very stressful time a little less stressful. We will absolutely use Marc again the next time we are posted, and recommend him to anyone we know buying or selling a home. Marc can simply be explained in one word - AWESOME! - Brad and Vallery Worth

Marc was great to work with. We were first time home buyers and Marc was really helpful in navigating this. He was always friendly available and very patient with us. We had a modest budget but he worked with us to find a house we love and we never felt like we were a lower priority with our budget. I can't recommend Marc enough to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home in or around the Ottawa area (We viewed homes in Kanata, Smithsfalls, Arnprior, Kemptville and even as far out as Renfrew.). - Brian

Marc was a pleasure to work with in the sale of our Barrhaven home, and we would have no hesitation recommending him to family and friends! From the outset, Marc's professionalism, personableness, knowledge, and integrity were on full display. From first meeting to celebratory handshake upon a successful sale, Marc demonstrated himself to be an agent who keeps his clients' interests in the forefront. At no point along the way did we sense undue pressure to make decisions simply for the sake of a speedier sale. That said, we were indeed surprised that our home sold, upon receipt of three competing offers, its very first day on the market! We wanted an agent who would carefully guide us through the business of selling our first home; respect our values; maintain integrity throughout the process; and, of course, represent us and our home well enough to secure it's optimal market value. We do not hesitate in saying that Marc not only met these expectations, but in fact exceeded them. If you are looking for the same in an agent, give Marc a try - and watch him score a touchdown with your own home! - Dan & Miriam

His knowledge, experience and expertise are greatly appreciated and reassuring when I was about to make the greatest investment of my life! He was a great source of support and guidance and a real friend, someone I could count on. He is not a greedy salesman, he is a role model of an agent, a guide and someone you can trust! I do not have enough words to express my gratitude to have met this professional and excellent agent to guide me in this process! Me and my daughter could not be happier! Kathy - Kathy Michaud

Marc helped us in the sale of our current home & is also representing us in the purchase of our new built, both in Stittsville area. Our situation was unique as the lead time for getting our new built was over a year. For peace of mind, we wanted to sell our existing home as soon as possible but for convenience sake give possession after moving into our new built. We found Marc after noticing his sign on two for sale properties in our area, which he sold in few days. We interviewed few agents, including Marc, & decided to seek his help as he stood out as a calm, open & honest individual with an impressive knowledge of the market. Marc is not one of those agents who will low ball your home value for a quick sale but takes time in really assessing your home condition & then recommending a fair value, even pushing the envelope. He recommended an overall approach for our unique situation & came to our home many times to advise us on preparing and staging. Despite being a seller’s market, Marc put lot of work behind the scenes into marketing and creating interest in our home. After listing, he followed-up with potential buyer’s agent after each visit to provide us with timely feedback. He stayed positive & calmly helped us in what can be a stressful time. He also encouraged us to stay on the course when we had doubts. We were extremely pleased to sell our house on our terms & close to our asking price. Marc is a true gentleman & highly reliable & we look forward to working with him on our new built now. We highly recommend him to anyone for all real estate needs. Thanks Marc! - Fawad & Farah
