We approached Marc with a specific house in mind after having a bad experience with another agent. He was professional, direct, knowledgeable, responsive, and helpful without being pushy. He didn't try to upsell us or doing anything dodgy. He helped us successfully buy the house we wanted within our budget. I would definitely work with Marc again! - EH

We moved from BC to Ontario in late 2023 and were recommended Marc as our realtor. We were unable to visit Ottawa before our move, so Marc's advice and services were invaluable in securing the right home for us. He not only found us a lot of potential options, but also viewed on our behalf and provided us with videos of the properties to view later. It meant that we got to see all the houses as if we were really there - these were very useful. Marc's advice was second to none, and he has gone above and beyond providing us with support during our move. I would highly recommend Marc as your realtor. - EM

We bought our house 7 years ago through Marc, and we did not even hesitate to use Marc again when we decided to sell. Even though we decided to sell during a slower time, Marc knew exactly how it was going to go and his optimism kept us calm. When we couldn’t decide where we wanted to live, he showed some houses. The work he puts into finding out about the place before we get there is outstanding. I still remember when we rode around with him 7 years ago. We looked at several house in one day. I don’t think it was 20, but boy did it feel like that. He had each showing confirmed and we hit all of our timings. He had all of the house information sheets printed off in a folder, in the order of seeing them. We worked with another realtor in a different city soon after working with Marc 6 years ago and I actually messaged him and told him he had set the bar so high. We found out the hard way not all realtors were like him. Whether you are buying or selling a house, using Marc is the only way to go. He is honest and knowledgeable, and in the end you have not only bought or sold your house, you have made a friend. - Gisele

Marc was a big help in selling my previous home out in Arnprior. Things weren’t selling as well at the time and he did a great job getting the home attention. It sold very quickly and the process was nice and easy with Marc’s help. He also helped us to find out new home also in Arnprior. We looked at so many different options. This was our first time purchasing a pre-existing home and we were nervous but Marc helped us through the entire process. - Melissa

While our list of musts and wants was changing as fast as the internet provided new options, Marc kept up with it, patiently advising and pros/cons of the market, locations, school zones, etc. What details he did not know or was not sure about, he timely looked it up and always followed up. He was flexible to accommodate visits when it worked for us, and even entertained the kids at times when they joined us for visits. He was always kind, available, and above all, honest and realistic in his comments with a "No BS" approach that made us feel confident with this important transaction. It will always be easy and enjoyable to work with Marc! We strongly recommend him to all buyers and sellers alike! He will work hard for you so to meet YOUR goals and desires, the best way he can. Merci encore pour tout! Max D - Max D

Marc was excellent, he showed a wide array within our criteria then narrowed it down as he saw what we wanted. Then still dropped everything and drove to the opposite side of the city because of a stray listing we saw. Cleared his whole schedule on a weekend with less then a week notice to accomodate our house hunting trip. I'd recommend him to anyone, and military personnel should absolutely go with Marc. Knows all the inspectors, lawyers, procedures everywhere in town. Honest, clear, no bullshit. Fantastic agent - K M

In the last 7 months, Marc tirelessly showed us close to 75(!!) houses (in person and video tours)and quickly responded to all of our texts and emails. He was able to work through our different time zones. He was very knowledgeable on everything! He knows the different areas of Ottawa, house details and history, septics systems, wells, and everything one could know about houses! Thank You Marc for helping us find our long term home! - S&M

Marc has once again ensured that we got a great price for our home, even when selling in the slow season. He not only made sure that we had all the knowledge and information we needed to prepare and stage the house, but was with us, guided us, through the entire sale. He will always be our #1, favourite agent. - Scott Marshall

Without hyperbole, Marc is the best realtor I have had the experience of working with. Both his professionalism and market knowledge were superior, and his quick action in lining up our showings was excellent. What I also appreciated, was his knowledge of home building and structures, which allowed for a mini pre-inspection, providing us with good information about the property before making a decision. Lastly, any communication via text or email was incredibly responsive. I would highly recommend Marc for buyers or sellers of/for property in Ottawa. - Agnes

Mark is as advertised! It was relieving to work with an agent that was truly willing to invest the time to view as many properties as it took to find the right one. As out of town buyers, Mark helped relieve a lot of the pressure associated with buying in an unfamiliar market. We found him to be engaging and responsive with a short turnaround on calls/texts/emails. He was objectively focused and not dismissive. He listened intently to our wants/concerns and wasn’t afraid to ask clarifying questions. He uses his foundational knowledge of HVAC/structure/electrical/plumbing to point out potential red flags for further scrutiny by certified professionals. He is comfortable commenting on these aspects to the depth of his knowledge and will not pretend that he knows more than he does just to close a sale. Mark is connected with and enjoys learning from the myriad tradespersons that can help identify/rectify deficiencies or carry out renovations – both minor and major. We would not hesitate to work with him on future transactions. - B & J

This is my second time using Marc. Both experiences, buying and now selling, were very positive. Marc provided recommendations to prepare the unit for listing, including considerations for price points and list timings. He answered all my questions and made sure I was well informed when making decisions. Finally, Marc is excellent with communications. He ensured I was up to date and informed on all aspects of the sale. Marc is a true professional and I highly recommend using his services for your next real-estate transaction. - Kreager Graham

Marc was extremely professional and responsive from the beginning. My wife and I are in the military and so the initial communication with Marc was done remotely while we were living in Manitoba. During our house hunting trip Marc cleared his schedule for us and showed us 14 homes in two days. He was very knowledgeable with respect to the different neighbourhoods and had a good grasp of current market trends. We were confident working with Marc every step of the way and he did an excellent job getting us into our dream home. Thanks Marc - Paul & Jane

This was my second time working with Marc for buying a house. Marc set up a portal with houses within the parameters I was looking for very quickly. Marc is very responsive and flexible for scheduling viewings. As we tour the houses, Marc points out areas of concern and important details about the houses that I don't know enough to look for. His guidance and recommendations have been extremely helpful to me. When it came to making an offer, he took a look at comparables for the area for me so I could make an appropriate/informed offer. I would highly recommend having Marc as your realtor! He's definitely someone you want to have on your team helping you with this process! - KO

It was a pleasure working Marc to find our first home. He proved very knowledgeable in telling us about the homes we viewed, such as how the piping material in some of the homes could impact the cost or acquisition of insurance, and potential claims in the future. He was very detail orientated, and made sure to point out any potential issues we may have with the homes. He was very responsive to questions we had, and promptly scheduled appointments for us. He did not try and push us towards any purchase, and we always felt that he just wanted to help find the right home for us. When we did find the home we loved, Marc was very diligent about the paperwork, and made sure our interests were covered in the offer. He was very helpful during the closing, was prompt in getting the inspections completed, and guiding us through the process. Thanks again Marc, it was a pleasure working with you!! - Alan & Kiera

Having seen Marc's sign on a recently sold house on our street, I made a cold call to Marc, indicating our possible intention to list and downsize. Marc came over, assessed our house, and constructively suggested possible value-added retrofits etc. which would be worth addressing before listing. We discussed the Ottawa housing market, a target listing price, timing and marketing strategy. I could see right away we would be getting much more than just a listing agent. Marc committed to staging the house; he recommended and helped coordinate a trusted local contractor to work on the retrofits and upgrades; a cleaner to ensure the house was looking spectacular for showings and a photographer for the online listing and marketing material. Once listed, Marc effectively managed the sales process, including hosting a very successful open house; he skillfully managed the incoming offers and subsequent counter offers, and successfully negotiated and closed the sale in a timely and mutually successful manner. Marc is an excellent communicator and regularly provided updates during the entire sales process and was always quick at responding to our questions. With dedication, focus and persistence, Marc exemplified his related experience, knowledge, skills, determination that makes him an all-star realtor and I highly recommend him to anyone who is currently thinking of either buying or selling their property. - Brian M.

Marc previously helped us find our home, so we were happy to hire him to help sell it. His advice, experience and professionalism are all top qualities that I’m sure assisted in the sale. We appreciated his record keeping and memory of the original purchase, that really helped us prepare the listing, while his team did a great job with photos and video - made our place look amazing. Finally, when it came to reviewing offers and understanding all the details/lingo, Marc was quick to call and explain everything clearly. All in all, every aspect of the sale process was just so easy on us, and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a knowledgeable and reliable realtor. - A. C.

I really enjoyed our experience with Marc! He is very knowledgeable and gave us very honest reviews of the home. He was able to give us both the pros and cons of the home so we can make educated decisions. He is very responsive and reliable! Everything went very smoothly in the process. He also gave us very good recommendations for other related services (inspector, lawyers etc) everyone that works with him also provided excellent service and I think that's a reflection of him and his work ethics. - JY

Marc was a pleasure to work with. He was very forthcoming with all information required and or desired, and was very quick to respond. He handled our sale with great professionalism, and equally kept both my wife and myself equally informed. Marc provided us with all the contacts that we needed to get our house ready for sale quickly, which included a stager and a general contractor ( both of which were also wonderful to work with). He has a great sense of humor which further helped put our minds at ease throughout the process. - Craig Alliston

Being first time home buyers, my husband and I were overwhelmed by the amount of information we need to keep track of as we were looking for our first house, but Marc made sure that he explains every single detail to us, clearly and patiently. No matter how trivial or simple our questions were, we would write an email to Marc, who would respond promptly with very clear answers and great guidance. We were very specific about the area where we wanted to own, and Marc helped us buy a house that exceeded our expectations. He's patient, knowledgeable, smart and very genuine. He made the process feel effortless to us, and we are very happy with how things went. - MayaJ

This review is to celebrate Marc's exceptional skills, dedication, and ability to deliver outstanding results even in the most difficult circumstances, solidifying AGAIN his reputation as an exceptional selling agent. Our house, located in a very challenging area and during a difficult market period, sold remarkably fast, exceeding our expectations. Marc's deep understanding of the house market, of buyer preferences, pricing dynamics, and timing allowed him to position the house effectively and attract qualified buyers. By showcasing the house's unique features and highlighting its value, he captured the attention of potential buyers. He demonstrated again a high level of expertise and proactive dedication to us as a client by being always ready to address concerns in timely manner, answer questions and provided guidance at every step of the selling process by making it so seamless and stress-free experience. Without a doubt, Marc is an asset to the real estate industry and a true supporter for his clients. YOU ARE A BLESSING MARC!! 😊 - D.R

We were planning on renting out our home without the use of an agent. We figured we could take pics, put it on Marketplace and Kijiji and other sites and attempt to screen applicants ourselves. Then we changed our minds and decided to hire Marc. It was 100% the right decision. We couldn't be more grateful or thankful for all his help as we didn't realize how much work went into renting a home (prep for pics, home showings, the legal aspect, screening applicants and more). He clearly explained the process and we found his knowledge extremely helpful. He brought things to our attention that never crossed our minds. Marc made the process so easy and painless. We had showings right away and we rented out our place within a few days. It was a huge relief and we would recommended Marc to anyone who is renting or selling their home. - Pat & Marissa

Right from the beginning Marc proved to be a very dedicated and professional agent who truly cares about his clients. His first rate knowledge of the market set us up for success in the guidance he provided in preparing our house, determining a listing price and developing the selling strategy. He was extremely responsive in replying to questions and would stop by for in person meeting whenever we asked. We believe that having Marc as our realtor was far and away the most influential factor in the quick and stress-free sale of our home. - Rollis Lawrenz

We had the pleasure of working with Marc as we successfully bought our first home! We saw such great reviews about his work online and, after one meeting, decided that he was the best fit for us. For a process that can be stressful and nerve wracking, Marc was able to guide us through the process effectively and answered all questions that came up. We were able to purchase a house that fit all our desired wants. We’re very happy with Marc’s services and hope to work with him again in the future! - James

I had the pleasure of working with Marc to help facilitate the sale of my home. Throughout the entire process Marc was patient with our questions, was knowledgeable of all areas related to Realtor regulations, and very organized with providing guidance on next steps. During a stressful time of having your home listed Marc was available and communicated promptly. The house sale process went incredibly smoothly working with Marc. Added bonus the playful banter on group text helped put any uncertainties to rest. Cannot say enough good things about Marc! - NA

Marc Parenteau is an excellent real estate agent that I would highly recommend to anyone! As a military member, Marc understood my unique needs. This was the second time that Marc has represented my home. Marc is a highly experienced agent who I found to be extremely personal, professional, knowledgeable, and very reliable. He was there every step of the way guiding me and made the whole process of buying and recently selling my home, an absolute breeze. Within hours of my home going on the market I had numerous showings, and the home was sold within 24 hours! If you are looking for a real estate agent you can trust, who will meet your needs, and exceed your expectations, Marc Parenteau is the real estate agent for you. - Katarina

Marc is an incredible agent to work with. He was very prompt with texts, calls, scheduling and flexible having to work around a working family with lots of children and a puppy. The kids actually called him "Super Agent" Marc - he treated the kids with just as much care as he did us. Always honest with his perspective of the market, he gave clear answers without beating around the bush. Having Marc as our realtor was easy and enjoyable. This was our second time having Marc represent our home. I will refer him to all of our family and friends needing a realtor. He helped us navigate the stress as we worked through the prepping, listing, and selling our latest home. He not only cares about making the process easy for you as a client, but he genuinely cares about getting you the most for what you deserve - not wasting time and not feeding you only information that you may want to hear. Straight up gentleman and hard worker. Merci encore pour tout Marc! - C&M

No words can express Marc's EXCELLENCE. He has a fantastic skill to make the selling process so seamless. We still can't believe to our eyes when we see the "Sold" sign in front of our door. We were expecting to sell in 3-4 months and Marc magically beyond our expectation with his extended network sold it in 3-4 weeks. Marc is like you're having a friend inside working for you. He deeply cares about his clients and he is an honest man. We highly recommend Marc, it's a blessing! - DT

This is the sixth time we have hired Marc's services and he continues to provide superb service. He is always available to answer all the questions that we have, and does so in a very friendly manner. While he offers excellent suggestions, he is always respectful of our choices and always acts on our behalf. Hi is extremely responsive and and has excellent knowledge of the market. He walked us through the rental process (something we do not too much about), and we felt like we were in very good hands following his advice and guidance. He also helped us negotiate a better agreement with the third party which saved us a good amount of money. I highly recommend Marc to anybody looking to buy/sell/lease/rent a property. You will not regret it. - Louis

We've known Marc for almost ten years since he helped us sell a former house and buy the one we're in. When we needed to quickly find an agent in January to list our home, it was an easy decision to sign with Marc. He's extremely easy to work with, highly dependable, very knowledgeable on the Ottawa real estate market and outlying areas, and is excellent at knowing how to list and stage your home, as well as selecting the best price point to list. We sold our townhouse in nine days at 99 percent of the asking price. We had numerous viewings, starting within hours of our house hitting the market. Marc's professionalism and easy going personality made our selling experience a less stressful one. We highly recommend Marc to sell and/or buy a home. - Jim Taggart

This is our second time working with Marc (first time was a purchase, now sale) - he's very knowledgeable, and always remembers small details from previous meetings that help save time/energy in the long run. I appreciate his confidence in himself, and the support team he works with (back up agent while out of town, photographer, etc.), that instilled confidence from us in him as well. Marc gave great advice/tips throughout the process, even with things not technically related to the sale, but just "good to know/remember". I would honestly recommend Marc to anyone - we've had great experiences on both occasions. - Jess Manley

We found Mark to be very professional & patient as we went through the process of narrowing down our target area & eventually finding the house for us. He was very thorough in pointing out the pros & cons of each house he showed & because we were from out of town he was very accommodating with times for showings. We appreciated his hard work in searching out all the listings that met our criteria. - TAN

Marc Parenteau is a top real estate agent, he assisted us with the purchase of our first home and we were very satisfied with his services. As first time home buyers, we had a lot of questions related to the process, Marc took the time to respond to all of them and he went above and beyond by providing us tips/advices to keep in mind during the whole process. Marc is very professional, knowledgeable, reliable, responsive and patient. We will definitely use Marc’s services for our next real estate transaction. Thank you so much Marc! - Hassan J.

My husband and I were ready to purchase our first home. When you are a first homebuyer the process can seem very overwhelming. We have picked Marc as our realtor, and we’ve never regrated it! Marc has supported us throughout the whole process. He took his time to answer all our questions (and we had a lot of them) and was very attentive to all our needs and preferences in terms of our perfect home. Marc was proving his suggestions and recommendations along the way. What we appreciated the most about Marc is that he was very patient and never tried to rush us into purchasing something we were not 100% happy about. We recommend Marc to anyone looking to purchase a home and we will definitely contact Marc again for our next real estate transaction. Thank you for everything Marc! – Anna Stepanova - Anna Stepanova

We were introduced to Mark by a friend of ours who was very happy with him in an earlier transaction, and we can confirm that Mark has done a truly excellent job for us. Our case was not a standard case but he delivered above our expectations. During the pandemic, we were still in Belgium, waiting for our Permanent Residence (PR) to be approved. At that early stage, Mark started to work with us via remote calls to identify our needs and guide us as to what we could reasonably expect in terms of price, house quality, regions, and so on. When we landed in Canada for our PR at the end of 2021, we had only one week here. Mark had set up two appointments and one was our dream house. Whilst driving back to the airport, we called Mark, told him our bid amount, and even though it was a Saturday, Mark had all the paperwork ready by the time we arrived at the airport where we could sign it electronically just before we flew back to Belgium. When we landed in Europe, we received news that the offer got accepted. It was at this point that Mark clearly went above and beyond the call of duty. Not only did he organise everything for us, such as inspections for the house, well and septic, but he also drove out to Balderson to be there on site as the inspectors were visiting. In addition, when a small water leak was identified in a downstairs room, Mark added a condition to the housing transaction that was reviewed and labelled as "excellent" by our lawyer. This clause saved us a lot of money in fixing the problem and restoring the room. We were abroad for the whole of this period and landed only on 3 April, just in time for the closing on 7 April. During this period, we were very dependent on Mark, but he performed brilliantly: he was honest as can be, protected our interests, found us dependable house inspectors, coordinated everything for us, guided our thinking as to what was realistic, wrote excellent legal amendments, and so on - all the while being friendly and responding quickly. Without exaggerating, I can say that he was the rock upon which we built our early life in Canada. He was instrumental in making our international move a success and for that we are eternally grateful to him. - Katrien

Marc assisted us with both the purchase of our new home and the sale of our old home. He was adept at navigating different areas, in our case rural and urban. We're grateful for his unwavering patience as he showed us many homes before finding "the one" Marc's extensive network of professionals and trades people, proved very useful to us in both sale and purchase. Working with someone who was both professional and down to earth helped make the entire process very smooth. Rest assured, you're in good hands with Marc. - Patti Sloan

My wife and I met Marc viewing houses with friends. He was great to chat with at that time and really seems to have an understanding of what our friends wanted. A little later we asked Marc to represent us for the purchase of our home and later still the sale of the same home. Marc always listened to what we were looking for and had a unbeatable knowledge of the housing market and home ownership. While searching for our own he offered us an unbiased opinion and wasn't pushy. He clearly cared about our happiness and wasn't just trying to push a sale. I would recommend Marc to anyone, he is a great Realtor and person! - Justin Adams

First and foremost, I'd like to Thank Marc for his diligence and hard work over the course of our house purchasing experience. Moving to Ottawa for the first time it was difficult navigating where to buy a home suitable for our family’s changing needs. From the moment we reached out to him, Marc demonstrated his expertise and ability to understand and recognize our needs. As we were a family preparing to downsize, Marc consistently proved his knowledge of the real-estate market. He was both professional and insightful about the homes he showed us and made very honest recommendations of potential improvements needed to satisfy our wishes. Marc was efficient, and demonstrated integrity every step of the way. Throughout our time working with him, he genuinely cared about our feed back and ensured we had everything we needed to make the right choice for us. What stands out even more about Marc is his after-sale care. Marc provided invaluable advice, knowledge and experience on issues ranging from city and municipal to dealing with home related improvements. He is an exemplary realtor and I would highly recommend Marc to all of our friends and family moving to the Ottawa area. - Carmen Pacheco

As a former Realtor myself, I have crossed a large number of Realtors - some bad (many), some better (fewer) and some good (rare). Marc is THE BEST Realtor I have had the pleasure to work with. We moved from Toronto to Ottawa and Marc was our eyes and ears from a distance. Marc is always looking out for his clients’ best interests — not just a quick sale! Marc is knowledgeable in all aspects of a house, not just the aesthetics! Realtors are a dime a dozen! If you want the best, hire Marc Parenteau. Nicole - Nicole Poirier
