Michael was instrumental in helping us sell our home quickly and above our asking price. From sign up to sold, our house sale was completed in under 48 hours. From sign up to closing...17 days. Thank you Michael for your help, advice and for making the transition a smooth and efficient one. I would definitely recommend Michael. - Debbie Imboden
Michael Lederman is absolutely amazing to work with. As first-time buyers, we were full of questions and insecurities. Before finding Michael, we had worked with another real estate agent who seemed uncommitted, was hesitant to answer our questions, and whose answers were often incomplete when he did reply - before literally giving up on us without the courtesy of even letting us know. Everything changed once we started working with Michael. He spent time talking us through everything, never hesitated to answer our questions, and was thorough, timely, and understanding of our needs and situation. His friendliness, good nature, and industry experience are unmistakable qualities. He’s a professional with integrity who values you as a person instead of a number. It’s obvious that he loves what he does, and we found his passion reassuring. It seemed like an impossible task - finding the perfect family home at an affordable price, in the middle of a pandemic, and in time to have our kids registered at their new schools. Michael jumped to the challenge and laid out all of our options and the potential paths we could take. He built us a plan that made sense. He found suitable listings and used his connections to get us in for visits with almost no notice. Michael walked us through the entire process and never hesitated to answer our many questions, providing valuable clarification and insights at every step. He also recommended (at our request) a broker and home inspector who both came through for us as well. Michael prioritized our circumstances and needs over his bottom line. We were interested in several homes and it would have been very easy for him to push us towards the most expensive ones (which would have meant a larger cut for him), but he consistently reminded us of what our initial spending target was and kept us to it at a time when we were getting desperate and could have been pushed into spending more than we initially wanted to. We had little-to-no prior real estate experience, we were rushed, and we could have been influenced easily. Michael could have taken advantage of that, but instead he used those factors to reassure and guide us. We found our family home, within our intended price range, and in time for our kids to be registered at their new schools. We couldn’t have done it without him. Our entire family is beyond grateful. When it came time to make an offer, Michael really shined. We were competing with other buyers, but his communication skills and industry knowledge got our bid accepted, despite the seller receiving higher offers. The seller even made a point of telling us that our agent was amazing and that his savvy was the primary reason our offer was accepted so quickly (literally less than half an hour later – and without cutting any corners or skipping on conditions)! If it wasn’t for Michael, we would have either had to pay a lot more than we did, or would have had to settle for an inferior home. We cannot recommend Michael enough, but will continue to at every chance we get, and will definitely go to him for any future real estate needs we have. If you’re buying or selling a home in the Ottawa-Gatineau area, Michael Lederman is the guy you want! Give him a call - you’ll know you’ve struck gold within the first few minutes. His communication skills, honesty and integrity, industry knowledge, and passion cannot be overstated. Michael seems to live and breathe real estate while keeping client satisfaction his genuine priority which, in this industry, seems to be a very rare combo. His humour and personality made him an absolute pleasure to work with, to the point that while we’re very happy to have found our home and be done with the market, we miss our chats and visits with him. Working with Michael is like working with a friend – a friend with more experience and passion for his trade than you’re likely to find anywhere else. Michael, if you read this – thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! - Josh

And thank YOU for having trusted in me...that's another major plus that just makes the entire experience a little easier.

We seriously have to stay in touch, and I'll bring a few things over to the house for a house warming. I am actually speechless... I really am at a loss of words of how to make a worthwhile reply to your compassionately written review. Speak soon and thank you THANK YOU. Enjoy that lovely home of yours...you picked it well!

Michael Lederman is the best at what he does. He has excellent interpersonal skills, understands the market very well, and takes good care of his clients. He also gets you in touch with highly competent people to look after your mortgage, home inspection, and legal documents. What I found impressionable with Michael is that he keeps up with you. He listens attentively to what you need and adapts to your needs as you go along. He is always in communication with you, keeps you informed about updates, and wants you to update him. He is always available when you need him most. He truly cares about the people he represents and works very hard to provide top-notch service. I don't know what I look forward to more, moving into my future home or the day where I will go through the process with Michael again. - Grant
Reply: I cant believe I overlooked your review here, Grant! Your review is so genuinely written, thank you so very much for taking the time to specifically highlight what aspects of my service were important to you. Hopefully you wont have to go through the process with me again for a very long time hahaha! God forbid! Remember all the small obstacles administratively we had to navigate and go through at the very end at closing? Those are always tough during a Covid 19 era of slowed down processes and a little bit of chaos mixed in....but you made it okay out on the other side. Bravo! Wishing you both a terrific new life at that beautiful house and I might drop by for a hello drink soon.

Michael is an excellent realtor, he is very professional and effective! As a first time home buyer he was able to answer any questions that I had. He was always available, not matter what time! We purchased our home during a global pandemic, and Michael made sure that all the necessary precautions were taken when completing the home visit, he even supplied us with the proper equipment (gloves, mask, shoes)! He works 100% for his clients! Thank you Michael for all your services, guidance and advice during this time! If I ever need a realtor again, I'll be sure to call you! - Kimberly

M. Lederman m'a semblé très professionnel et expérimenté. J'ai été en confiance avec lui. Il est dynamique et ne ménage pas ses efforts. Il m'a aidé à faire la part des choses devant trois bonnes offres en posant les bonnes questions. - Dallaire
Reply: J'avais la chance d'avoir un client assez gentille qui a suivi mes conseils. Gros merci France d'avoir confie la vente de votre belle maison! On se verra en avril !
Thank you Michael for your endless assistance in answering our questions, providing valuable advice and even for being a pain at times when you had to remind us what we as seller's needed to get done and why. You were there for us 7 days a week and from early morning to evening. Without all this our home wouldn't have sold as fast as it did. - Sandra Commanda & Serge Riel
We have just sold a house with tenants using the services of Michael. He sold the house in less than 2 months, which was well beyond our expectations since the house was rented with a long-term lease so a limited market. It was difficult because tenants were not cooperative at all for the visits and not keeping the place very clean and he managed really well with them. Very patient guy! Anyway, he managed to sell it quickly and all negotiations took place while we were in Europe with time difference and he was always responding in a timely manner. A big thank you to him and I would recommend him anytime. - Martine Letellier
Reply: I could not have hoped for a more patient and persévèrent home owner seller client given the complexities of the varying dynamics at work. Thank you very much for your patience and having entrusted the sale of the house.
With Michael's advise we were able to sell our condo in not even two weeks. The process was smooth and he was able to calm our nerves in the process (first time seller). We kept Michael's services for our purchase and he had visits lined up and help us purchase our new home. Thank you Michael for your patience and great advice - Christine Beaudouin
Reply: Dear Christine and Ron, thank you for perservering through what was a testing of nerves experience due to the circumstances that were due to outside factors but you made it to the end. I really admire your courage throughout the unknowns that - together as a team - we were able to manage . Thank you immensely for your trust and confidence in both Selling and Buying. Speak again soon.
