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

Marc is an excellent real estate agent and I would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home! We (my husband and myself) read great reviews about Marc and he was top rated. We emailed him and got a response the same day. Marc is really nice and patient. He really took the time to listen to our needs, in order to show us homes that met our requirements. Marc is flexible; we lived in Montreal and were only free to see houses on Fridays. Therefore, Marc accommodated us; met with us on Fridays to show us as many houses we could see considering our time restrictions (in Ottawa and surrounding areas). Also, he is very knowledgeable and detail oriented; he informed us about so many things regarding properties, that you would not even think of. He responded to emails in a timely fashion and sent us listings regularly for review. Also he has references available if needed, for needs that arise when purchasing or selling a home, i.e. contractor, etc. With Marc as our real estate agent, the process of purchasing a home was pleasant and easy!

Marc was a delight to deal with, throughout the entire home search process. Marc listens to the needs of the client, and then caters home suggestions to each individual.

Working with Marc was awesome. We decided to start looking for a home in a very difficult time, mid pandemic, as the market was quite tricky to navigate, and we ended up seeing many houses as this was our first home and we did not know what we liked. Marc was relentlessly patient and approached every showing with an unmatched amount of support and knowledge. I will admit, whenever I thought of working realtors before beginning this process, I thought I was going to feel pressured or persuaded into making a decision, but I could not have been more wrong. Marc made my partner and I feel extremely relaxed and comfortable throughout the process and we did not stop seeing homes until we found the one we truly loved, and we have Marc to thank for that. He is a truly a professional! - Cole MacPhee

J'ai contacté Marc, qui m'a été recommandé par mon patron, afin de m'aider avec l'achat de ma première propriété. J'avais très peu d'expérience et était très nerveuse d'acheter une propriété dans un marché immobilier complètement fou et surévalué. Malgré tout, Marc a toujours été patient et serviable, a répondu à toutes mes questions et a partagé des conseils très utiles sur les conditions fluctuantes du marché. Il m'a fait visiter plusieurs propriétés â travers la ville. Marc a toujours été à l'écoute et n'a jamais mis aucune pression. Lorsque j'ai finalement trouvé mon condo de rêve, Marc m'a guidé tout au long du processus d'achat. Son expérience, son professionalisme, sa rapidité à répondre, et son calme ont vraiment fait la différence. Merci pour tout - Vicky

After living in a rural estate lot for 13 years we made the decision to move back into the city and look for a home downtown where we could walk to amenities. Marc was recommended to us by our sister in-law who had used him to find their home. With a crazy housing market and some specific things we were looking for, it took us around 18 months to find the property we wanted. During that time Marc was always patient and helpful, showing us properties as well as dispensing advice on the fluctuating marke conditions. At no time did we feel pressured to make an offer on any property and when we did finally find the right place, Marc guided us quickly through the process, including lining up a inspector to help us make our decision. As the market was changing again, we wanted to sell our house quickly and with Marc’s help, we had it on the market within a week, with multiple offers to choose a week later. Buying and selling a house is always going to be stressful, but Marc’s experience and calm demeanour really made the difference. He was even able to help secure contractors for some last minute rennovations. Thank you Marc. We hope not to move again for a long time, but when the time comes we will be in touch! - Rob Sloan

As a military family, this was our fourteenth move - hands down Marc has been the best agent we have had to date. Given we were coming from an overseas posting, Marc made accommodations to deal with associated stressors. During the house hunting, Marc easily acquired our home interests and needs, highlighting only the properties that would be of interest. During each property viewing Marc ensured that we were aware of the essential elements with the houses focusing on major interior aspects such as windows, furnace, and appliances. During the closing of our transaction, Marc made the process effortless; concentrating only on details. Marc has an abundance of integrity and honesty treating his clients the same way he would want his family treated. Marc will be our agent for move 15 and will be highly recommended to all our friends and colleagues moving to and from Ottawa. - Paul and Carmen Payne

We have used Marc's real estate services several times over many years, originally with the sale of our home in Kanata for which Marc provided an incredibly professional, honest and invaluable service. While our most recent dealing with Marc involved finding a rental as a second home in Kanata (we have built our dream home in cottage country), Marc had us view an ideal rental home and had an accepted offer in place literally within one day! This was the quickest and easiest real estate transaction we have ever been through and we would highly recommend Marc's services to anyone! - Carey Gaul

We didn't know anyone in Ottawa when we started searching for our first home. Marc was the top-rated realtor I found in Ottawa and I am glad we reached out to him to help us find our first home in Canada. As first-time home buyers, we were not confident in making the right judgments on the quality of the house, the background of the builders, and neighborhoods and school considerations, but Marc was always there to guide us throughout this whole journey of the house hunt. He ensured we stayed calm, and didn't make any hasty wrong decisions out of panic in a seller's market like this. Marc is very responsive, informed, always prepared professional, and highly proactive. He informed us upfront about all our past house visits, how did it go and what to expect in the future. He has been a great support during this process and we could totally trust and rely on him. We highly recommend Marc and will definitely be looking up to him in the future as well. Thanks a lot, Marc for making things easy for us and to help us find our first home :) :) - Shubhangi

We worked with Marc when buying our home six years ago. Marc made such a strong impression that we have always kept him in mind for the day when we knew we were going to sell. He was always punctual, professional and organized. He would even call us when major storms swept by the area to ensure we were fine. That kind of after-sales service is rare these days. Fast forward to recently, we recruited Marc’s help to put our house on the market. His consistent attention to details, organization and initiative that we have come to know as his trademark once again delivered just as impressively. It is such a breath of fresh air working with Marc who has delivered without fail and always stayed on top of his game. Whether buying or selling our experience working with Marc has been just as wonderful. We recommend Marc to our family and friends with applause. - Raymond Liew

We bought with Marc in 2015, sold with Marc in 2018, and bought with Marc in 2022. We are a military family and have moved 10+ times. Hands down, our experience with Marc has been the best real estate experience we have had over 22 years. He is highly knowledgeable, well researched, well connected, honest, transparent, polite, tactful, and a delight to work with. Marc will go the extra miles to ensure he represents your interests and make sure you are well informed. If you are going to invest in a home, you should strongly consider investing your time with Marc Parenteau! We look forward to working with him again on our next posting. - Joel

Marc was recommended to us by friends who had bought their own house through Marc and highly recommended him. We concur. We started our Canadian home search from abroad in the middle of the pandemic. Marc took the time for a video call, listened carefully to what we were looking for and kept us informed of interesting properties. In a later stage, when we were visiting Canada for a week, he helped us identify our top priority targets to visit and also filled us in on some realities of the Canadian housing market to manage our expectations. With his help, we whittled our visit list down to two, and sure enough, one was our dream house. We had to fly back to Europe but even under those challenging conditions, Marc took us through the entire process of bidding, added rock-solid amendments to the purchasing agreement, was present at the property to let in the housing inspectors as we were unable to be there, and he was available at all times to answer all our big and small questions. From start to finish in this process, we were truly happy with his honesty, transparency, efficiency, and detailed knowledge of the housing market. A very strong point is also the way he communicates accurately, succinctly and clearly about complex topics.

Marc made the process of buying a condo in this unforgiving market seamless. He always had great tips and insight, and on every occasion was absolutely helpful during my search. He knows the market extremely well and is constantly aware of the situation and trends. I was also impressed by how hard working he is. Never a day went by where I felt Marc wasn’t trying his hardest. I truly appreciated how, for my first purchase, Marc took the time to explain all the procedure carefully. Even if my questions might’ve appeared “dumb”, he always explained everything in a very clear and simple way. Communicating with him was also extremely easy. He was always quick to respond to my text messages. I felt like I was just texting a friend while looking for a condo to buy. Finally, I truly recognized that Marc wanted me to be happy more than anything. He genuinely wanted what’s best for me. I appreciated his kindness and his patience very much. I felt like I simply was one of Marc’s family members, and I’m very thankful for that. If it weren’t for him, I would probably still be looking to buy. I would recommend Marc to anyone without hesitation. Thank you for everything, Marc! - Adrien Adam

Marc provided me with the necessary information in our first meeting, and he was professional, resourceful, and knowledgeable. I gave him my key before I left for my vacation. Five days later, I got an offer. He was very experienced and strategic about the process and approach, which helped me immensely. - Sandra YS

I have bought, sold and rented with Marc and he helped me in all three transactions. He is knowledgable, committed to doing a good job and never let me down over the years. I will never use another realtor in Ottawa, and if I leave the city, he will be my first call to find a referral agent as I trust his opinion and judgement - James Dickson

Found Marc on this site and contacted him late 2021 to help us find a home in the Ottawa region. Our plan was to give each person a day to reply before moving onto another realtor (using that as our "how fast does this individual reply" type thing). Marc replied that same day with questions and set-up a time to have a call to discuss further. Great start to this process. As we are hailing from Montreal, it limited us to visiting once a week to see homes, which made it very hard in todays market to find something and have the time to bid. Thankfully Marc dedicated that one day/timeframe to us and took us to numerous places and gave us valuable input throughout the visits. Extremely happy we went with him. Successfully got our home and ready for the next chapter of our lives. Thanks Marc! we really appreciate it. - Soheil & Kathryn

Marc is one of the best agents we’ve had the pleasure of working with. When we needed to find a house in Ottawa I was asking around for recommendations and we feel lucky we ended up with Marc. No matter how much experience you have buying and selling houses, with each transaction there’s a lot to learn and Marc is an excellent guide. He listens well, he sticks to the facts and he has the experience and professional self-confidence to tell you what you need to hear. When we got caught up in the over-heated Ottawa market, Marc gave us solid, balanced advice to help us make our decisions in a calm and level-headed way. When we finally took the plunge and there was a last minute problem on the Sellers side, Marc was sympathetic without adding stress to the situation and he was quick to assess the problem and quick to act - he was on the phone right away trying to help us move things forward. With Marc you feel you have someone in your corner who is looking out for your best interests. He has a great mix of genuine love for the job and lots of experience. He’s responsive and detailed in his communication and somehow was able to make us laugh after 11 hours in our packed-to-the-gills car with 2 kids and the very real possibility of no house for the night. We really appreciated his down to earth attitude - he was consistently friendly and approachable and made us feel we were his only clients. - Anne Samulevcius

Marc was our realtor when we bought this property and now six years later when we sold. Both times Marc has provided exceptional service. In between, we were looking at other properties in the Ottawa area. Marc helped us with our search, set up showings and came with us. He was always willing to accommodate our schedule and travel well outside the city. Any time when we would email, text or call Marc, if he did not respond right away, it was within a very short period of time. Marc really knows the Ottawa market. He provided us with sound advice in a respectful manner. His use of technology to set up showings and review offers made it very easy for us, regardless of where we were or the time of day. Marc is also knowledgeable on the Federal government relocation programs. We highly recommend Marc for any of your real estate needs in the National Capital Region. - Michael and Sara O'Malley

This was our third time contracting Marc's services and he once again lived up to his reputation. He was extremely responsive, knowledgeable, patient, kind and most importantly available. He diligently accompanied us through the process, providing valuable advice about the market and area of the property. We received the price that we wanted and this is largely because of Marc's professionalism and advice. You will not be disappointed if you hire Marc for your buying, selling or rental needs. - Louis

We interviewed Marc based off of reviews we found online about his services. Not only was he knowledgable but very hands on and responsive. Marc did not let us down. With the current unpredictable market Marc was still able to predict the value of the sake of our house. He went above and beyond. He was able to get offers over asking. If you are looking for an agent while will be honest, who will respond when you ask questions, who is organized and will keep you up to date on every move of the sale and I am sure of a purchase of a home Marc is your agent! We can't thank him enough for his welcoming services and for making selling with a dog and young toddler absolutely a walk in the park :) - C & G

It was a very positive experience having Marc as a real estate agent. I recently needed to move from Manitoba to the Ottawa Valley without knowing much about the surrounding area. Marc was very helpful setting up search criteria, providing advice and discussing what options may suit me best. When I was finally able to visit the area for a short time period, Marc planned around my schedule and arranged multiple showings, quickly adapting search criteria to changing needs. Finally, Marc was with me for every step of the property closing, helping to insure the entire process was smooth as possible. Thank you Marc for being responsive, thorough and accommodating. It's been a pleasure having you as an agent! - Kreager Graham

Marc did a fantastic job! His knowledge of the market, resourcefulness and nimbleness played a fundamental role in selling our house in this tough market. We had lots of questions, and since day one he always took the time to teach us and guide us with great advice, helping us make educated decisions. He goes above and beyond in order to help his clients to make the whole experience a stress-free success. He gave us some great recommendations to get the house ready for marketing. The listing photos and video production were top notch. Working with Marc was a pleasure, he was very responsive, always had our back and was very effective in dealing with interested buyers. What a truly great person we had representing us! We couldn't have asked for a better realtor than Marc! If you are ever in the need of a Realtor, don’t think twice because you found the best one! Thank you, Marc! - Dritan Tabaku

We are beyond happy to have Marc working with us towards our homeownership. We are first time buyers and also new comers to Canada and Ottawa. The amount of info and knowledge Marc shared with us through the viewings helped us adjust our expectations based on our budget. The most specific thing that made us felt super comfortable working with Marc was that we never felt that we were in any way pushed to commit to something we are not absolutely convinced with. The relationship were absolutely professional, and Marc always amazed us with how responsive and efficient he was with the communication. He truly made us feel that our needs in the house market were heard, cared, and supported. I recommend ANYONE who's looking for an agent to reach out to Marc, you will be really well taken care of! - YH

Marc Parenteau came recommend from a friend when I moved to Ottawa, And it was obvious to see why. He was knowledgeable, responsive, and exceeded all of my expectations. Despite having moved about a dozen times before, all over the country, Marc stands out as the agent I would most readily recommend. His knowledge of the market, his knowledge of structural and design issues, his connections to every needed professional made the process effortless, stress free and successful.

Marc came recommended by a friend who also completed a military move. Marc is super responsiveness and really pays attention to the details that matter to you the most. With a military move, you are on a VERY short timeline to find a house (roughly one week) and Marc understood the pressures that come with that timeline. He helped us narrow down our options in an incredibly competitive market and maximized our limited timeframe to find the house that is absolutely right for us. Marc demonstrated patience and provided sound advice during the buying process. It doesn’t stop there, he provided us with helpful links for closing, offered (and we accepted) recommendations for other service providers and arranged for our walk-throughs at times that were convenient for us, always cognizant of the fact that we were moving from outside the city. Marc is a true professional and an exceptional realtor. - Kay & Tee

I would highly recommend Marc. He was extremely professional and found us the absolute perfect property in a very tough market. We had very little time to look at properties as we were coming from out of town, Marc was very accommodating to this and helped us maximize the little time we had. I especially appreciate Marc having great connections with inspectors and trades people during and after the purchase. For example, he was able to have a pre-offer inspection organized for us within 12 hours so that we could quickly put in an offer on our dream property. He really goes the extra mile to help make the transaction as seamless and stress free as possible for his clients. He is also responsive and thorough. Marc has everything you would want in a top agent! - MMD

As first time homebuyers in this wild real estate market, Marc was there for us every step of the way!! From day one Marc was working hard to help us to find a home in our budget and navigate this market.  Marc was always quick to respond to our (many) questions and every property we visited Marc pointed out anything he thought might be a red flag. Marc genuinely wants the folks he works with to be happy with their home purchase and understand the commitment they are making to a property and as first time homebuyers we really felt like he had our backs. Marc was there for us every step of the way and truly delivered when it came time to negotiate, his expertise was invaluable; we were able to find our first home.. in this market.. all thanks to Marc's guidance and experience!! 10000000000000% Recommend!

Moving from a different province we needed a realtor that could help us find the perfect home for us without us being there to actually see it. Marc was knowledgeable, professional, calm and directed us to the best areas of the city. Many things had to be considered as we were not able to to visit Ottawa due to Covid-19. Marc was always available on the phone , text and emails. every question we had got answered. We knew what style home we wanted and Marc gave us tours via camera phone. Marc also connected us to tradesmen, the lawyer and resources that we needed to complete the transaction. We are very happy with he’s service and we would use he’s services in the future. - Mike and Hanni

Marc helped us out to quickly find and check out potential properties throughout Kanata. He was incredibly kind, patient and knowledgeable about the places we saw, what to look out for when walking through a home and answered every question we had. If he didn't know, he was quick to find out. We felt very confident and blessed by God to have Marc as our realtor. Because of the crazy buyer's market at the time of writing this review, we unfortunately were unable to find a home in kanata... but thanks to Marc's humility, advice, connections and experience, he actually saved us from making a huge financial mistake and directed us on a path that eventually aided us in purchasing our first home elsewhere. We're very thankful to Marc and highly recommended him. We hope that this review helps in choosing him for a realtor. - Steve & Jess Padmore

Marc is the epitome of a professional, honest, and knowledgeable agent. He goes above and beyond to give the most detailed inspection of a home to the potential buyer, which in todays market where home inspections are few and far between is a godsend! Marc is extremely prompt when attending showings in addition to investigating as many details about the property he can prior to meeting with his clients. I was able to conduct both in-person and virtual tours with Marc and in both cases, he answered all of my questions and went into as much detail as possible, as well as provide close-ups and accurate descriptions of areas during virtual tours. Marc is the best agent I have worked with and I would strongly recommend him to anyone who is in the market for a knowledgeable, honest, and hard-working agent in assisting in the purchase of a new home or sale of your home. - Jeff
