From the time I emailed Marc looking for an agent to sell my home until it was sold Marc was exactly what you would want in an agent. He got back to me right away and made the whole process from staging and listing and showings to the day it sold really stress free. He was very knowledgeable on the important things to do to get the house ready. His motto is "Buy and sell with a game plan" and his plan certainly works. Will recommend him for sure. - Karen and Dan

We had a very pleasant experience with Marc, both selling our old home and purchasing our new one. Although the market had very little inventory when we were looking, Marc helped us to find a wonderful home in which we are very happy. Marc was always accessible for info, or just reassurance when needed. We would highly recommend Marc for your real estate needs and would use him again without hesitation. Thank you Marc!

Marc has been so patient with us because we probably looked at over 30+ homes. He was never pushy in having us settle on a home and even encouraged us to wait for a better price and avoid overpriced homes even though we were willing to pay the asking price. In the end we found our perfect home and couldn't be happier with Marc's advice and enthusiasm along the way. If and when we decide to move way into the future we will definitely be using Marc again! - James

We engaged with Marc to help put our 3-BR townhome on rent. Marc exhibited great professionalism from day one and meetings with him were great, highly informative and with no pressure to take him on as our realtor at anytime. Marc focuses more on the value he brings to the process and how he can assist in make real estate transactions less stressful for the people involved. We got excellent results from him and our property was rented out in record time despite the tight timelines. I highly recommend his services and have no reservations in stating him to be one of the best in the field. - Jeebak and Pooja

We luckily stumbled upon Marc when visiting an Open House. Upon first impression and in speaking with him, we both felt very at ease with his approach, marketing ideas etc. He knew that we weren't in a hurry to sell and/or purchase but that it was merely a thought at that time.. We agreed to have him send us listings and periodically, would ask if we wanted to update our search criteria. We did this for well over a year (showing great patience). We never felt pressure to purchase or list. We finally gave him a call and got things in motion. We went to MANY homes and could not find what we liked. We finally decided to purchase new with Mark's assistance. Than it came time to list.and Mark came to assist with staging etc. Quite happy we didn't need to go out and purchase items to show our home. He used our own furnishings. Our home went "Live" on a Wednesday, not accepting offers until Sunday at 7:00pm. The couple who bought our home came through that Friday so, in reality, Mark sold in it two days. Second highest sell in the area since 2016! Through Marc's marketing, our home was viewed over 5000 times! Got full price and our closing date. We couldn't be happier with Mark's superb work ethic, knowledge, skills and easy going approach. We would highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you again Marc, we're off to our new adventure shortly!

I've moved six times in the last twelve years and this move/home purchase was by far the smoothest. Marc took the time to understand my wants/needs when looking for a new home. With my work, I have 5 working days to find, purchase, and close on a home. Marc wasted no time. He was patient considering the amount of homes I wanted to see since I was new to the city. The ease of drafting an agreement and closing on a home was very much appreciated. When I am due to sell my home in Kanata, he will be the realtor that I choose. He had a game plan and it was worth investing in. Thanks again. - Crystal Boutilier

I was a first time home buyer who had a less than stellar experience with my first realtor. Feeling like my interest weren't put first, I asked my friends for recommendations on a realtor. Marc was recommended to me and I am extremely grateful for having him as my realtor. Marc was very insightful when viewing homes and took the time to find the perfect listings for me. It didnt take long after Marc became my realtor for me to find my ideal home. Kudos to Marc on his negotiating skills as well, he did wonders to close the sale. I would highly recommend Marc!

Marc went above and beyond for us and we are so happy to have found him. We moved to Ottawa from another province and were unsure which area we wanted to purchase in. He spent countless hours showing us houses in all neighbourhoods and always had lots to say about each area to help us with our decision. I would absolutely use Marc again and would recommend him to anyone seeking a professional, smart and all around good person as your realtor. - Laura

Working with Marc on both purchasing a home and selling ours was nothing short of flawless. He is a professional through and through. Marc has gone more than above and beyond for us and we could not be more grateful for his knowledge and experience with the Ottawa market as well as his genuine care for everything he does. We would highly recommend using Marc as he is one of the most reliable, knowledgable and hard working people we have ever worked with.

We started looking for condos on our own and we were getting nowhere fast. A couple of friends referred Marc to us and with him our home search improved in speed and scope. Marc was always available to answer our questions and to show us the properties we wanted. I saw a dozen, maybe more, properties with him and managed to close the deal in less than two months. It could have been faster if more condos were really pet friendly (accepting dogs over 25 lbs.), but with Marc we managed to find the perfect place for us and our pooch. Marc's help was indispensable for us and we highly recommend him to any home buyers in the Ottawa region. - Flavia Campos

Marc was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. We were moving from a different city but he made the transition easy by providing us with great information on the different areas of the city as well as the subdivisions within them. We were looking for a quick turnaround on a sale as we had already sold our previous house; when we found properties that we wanted to view, he was consistently available to assist us. The information and guidance he provided on properties and the home buying process was exceptional. If you are looking for a reliable, knowledgeable and professional realtor, Marc Parenteau should be at the top of your list! - Pat & Jenn Lavoie

As first time home buyers, we were nervous about starting our search and finding an agent. Very soon after meeting with Marc, we felt much more confident in the process as well as had full confidence in his expertise. He is responsive to both questions and to our feedback on the homes we started initially looking at. We ended up finding what we felt was the perfect home, and strategically putting together an offer was greatly helped by Marc's advice and honesty. He also provided great referrals for an inspector and legal advice for closing the sale. We ended up with our dream home and he just made everything easy and straightforward. I would hands down recommend Marc's services to anyone, and look forward to being able to do so! - Jenelle Williams

We had the opportunity to work with Marc to purchase a house in Nepean. We are a military family who moved from Manitoba to Ottawa and it was our first time moving to Ottawa. Marc was fantastic. Initially we did most of our work via email and phone. Marc was very quick to answer our questions and send us updates. Marc was able to send us new listings based on different search parameters from the various sections of the city we were looking in. These small personal touches greatly assisted us with understanding the Ottawa market. Once we arrived in Ottawa Marc dedicated a significant amount of time to show us around and show us the houses we were interested in. He was quick to pass on updates on homes before they were available on the MLS site. He gave us honest advice when we decided to put an offer on a house again helping us to understand the market and not to overpay for a home. Marc was with us during the home inspection, offering us insights on what we should discuss with the seller upon conclusion of the inspection. He moderated a meeting with us and the seller to ensure we had all of the right information we needed to confidently lift the restrictions in place when we made our offer. During the pre-closing walk through Marc again made sure all of the small details were taken care of and nothing was looked over. Marc was great to work with, we would highly recommend him and when we move again our first call will be to him. - Stephen Haire

Marc went out of his way to ensure our home search and purchase went smoothly. He worked hard to ensure our offer was accepted and kept us informed of the progress with realistic expectations. As this was our 7th home purchase, Marc was by far the best realtor we have ever had the opportunity to work with. When we are ready to sell, Marc will be our only choice and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to make the transition a much easier experience. - Mark Chambers

Marc is without a doubt the best agent my girlfriend and I ever had. Courteous, knowledgeable, and he always had a smile on his face. He offered invaluable insight into every home we looked at...good and bad... he simply had your best interest at heart. If you had questions for him (and we had many), he would do his homework and give you the very best information to work with. Never once did we feel pressure from him to buy a home...as a matter of fact, he wanted you to be very sure about your decision...he reeled us in a couple of times, and because of that, we are ecstatic about the home he finally found us. We can't say enough about Marc. I recommend Marc to anyone who wants a positive, pressure-free experience. He will find your dream home that will give you that warm and fuzzy.

Marc was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was always available whenever I wanted to see a home. As a first time home buyer, Marc let me know of a new home buyer seminar. This informative seminar went over the whole process which was extremely helpful. Overall I would recommend him to any new home buyers in the Kanata area like myself. - Matthew Bastien

We worked with Marc to sell our home in the West end of Ottawa. We were extremely impressed with his calm, friendly and professional demeanour and his in-depth knowledge of the market. Despite being a sellers market, Marc put a tremendous amount of work into marketing and creating interest in our home. He answered all of our questions and calmly helped to navigate us through what can be a very stressful time. Marc was very knowledgeable about military move regulations and was always willing to fully discuss any issue. Our collaboration allowed us to sell our house on the first day we listed and for over our asking price. We highly recommend Marc to anyone for either buying or selling. - Derek and Jennifer Crabbe

We met Marc at an open house and were relieved that he actually let us look around the house without hounding us as we’d been so many times before! We then had a relaxed and comfortable conversation about house hunting in general and how we were deciding between building new or buying a pre-existing home. His confident and no-pressure attitude made us comfortable to have him follow up with property searches. He was patient and generous with his time over many months, giving us advice about both options we were considering and not trying to sway us. He was supportive and genuinely happy for us when we decided to build new and not purchase with him despite all the time he had spent with us because we ultimately found the best home for us. When it came time to sell our home, there was no question about who we would list with. Marc was great and we sold our home in 1 day with multiple offers! He was in touch right through to closing and even came to the inspection of our new build with us to offer his experience and support! The best things about Marc: relaxed and no pressure attitude, honesty, patience, genuine caring, efficiency, professionalism, accessibility and confidence. The worst thing about Marc: your time with him comes to an end! We would (and have) recommend Marc without a doubt! Alissa and Mike - Alissa Miki

June 2017- My wife and I moved to Ottawa from Winnipeg MB , I am in the military, so we had a tight deadline of 1 week to purchase a new home in a City we did not know. A friend of mine recommended Marc, from the start he understood our time deadline and that we wanted to see as many homes in our price range within a short space of time. Marc organized our home visits in a logical manner so that we were not bouncing all around the City. He was also very frank with us regarding the houses resale value, knowing that I would more than likely sale the new home in the next three years when the military posted me to my next location. When we found the right home, Marc remained in touch and arranged for some upgrades to be done at our new home while we were packing our old house up. Marc actually paid some contractors out of his own pocket while we were driving across Canada to complete the Reno's. I found Marc to be an extremely knowledgeable real estate agent who was more concerned about the well being of my family than making a large commission. Marc knew that we were going to throw away the washer and dryer in the new home, he contacted me to explain that a first time home buyer with a new baby had just purchased a home when their dryer broke down, he asked me if I would sale my dryer to this young couple. We gave them the dryer, having been in the same predicament when we were young. Again this shows how Marc goes above and beyond the call of duty to help his clients. We will definitely recommend Marc to anyone buying or selling a home and we will have him list our home when its time to move again. Thanks Marc Shane and Joann - Shane Pollock

We'd had success selling two of our previous homes privately but our last home was a bit more of a challenge. When we decided to go with a listing agent, we interviewed a few and quickly decided that Marc was our guy. Not only had he shown the house to clients while it was for sale privately and thus had no issues with dealing directly with a seller, but what struck us most was his open and honest style. Not once did we feel rushed or pressured. Everything was done on our terms but with Marc's excellent advice to help guide us along. And once Marc's sign went up on the lawn, our home was sold in 2 days! I highly recommend Marc for anyone's real estate needs. And don't forget to ask to see the Grey Cup ring(s)! - Carey Gaul

We were 5 hours out of town looking for a property with in 45 min to Ottawa. We sent Marc out many times to try and review the home before we made our travel. Marc was so pleasant to work with, his advise was solid and very sincere, he never gave up on us as purchasers. The end result was we found our beautiful Waterfront Home in Calabogie and I know this would never had happened without Marc as our team leader. Thanks Marc you are the best agent we have ever dealt with in all my years of owning and selling homes. I would have had him as our listing too but the commute would have been a little far lol. I would strongly recommend Marc as an outstanding agent. Jan Grant and Steve Milburn - Jan Grant

Marc was recommended to us through my sister and we couldn't have been happier! He replied to messages and emails as soon as we pressed 'send', was patient and always willing to go the extra mile to answer our million questions and to find new listings (even after we upped the price, downed the price, added a garage, took it off, searched for listings in the country, then the city, then the country again!!). One of Marc's best qualities is that he doesn't push or rush you into any houses, he will keep searching until you have found your dream home! - Alex and Joe Davidson

Marc was very patient with two people brand new to the Ottawa-area.

My wife and I got to know Marc very well over many months. We had difficulty selling our home due to location and it being in a niche market. Despite my occasional frustration at getting trying to get an offer, Marc always remained upbeat and very professional, settling me down with his sense of humour. He was always instantly available by phone or email, followed up leads diligently and proved to be an effective negotiator for us. On the buying end, he was equally excellent. I highly recommend Marc Parenteau to represent home sellers and home buyers. He's a true professional. - Jim Taggart
