Testimonials

As first time home buyers, it was important to us to have a realtor that we trusted and that we could rely on. Kim was responsive, professional, and friendly. She went above and beyond to answer any questions or concerns we had. 
 
We ended up in a multiple bid situation for our current home. Kim went the extra mile to support our offer and to communicate our values to the buyers. We feel that because of her knowledge and skills, we were able to put forward the offer that landed us our dream home. We will be 100% recommending Kim to our friends and family

Kim LaRiccia came highly recommended to me by friends of the family when my private sale disappointingly fell through the cracks!!
 
Kim took the time to listen and reassure me that she would work really hard to market and sell my house as soon as possible.  And she did just that…her commitment never wavered and she delivered by selling my home within 3 days of listing! She did everything possible to represent my best interests and sold the house at a price, timeframe and conditions that exceeded my expectations. You have been super throughout all of this particularly navigating through our sensitivities, stress and strain of the whole thing. I appreciate your patience.
 
Thank you Kim. I’m very grateful for all your support and dedication that you provided throughout the entire process.  Now it’s my turn to pay it forward to recommend you to my family, friends and others as a highly trusted and respected Real Estate Agent.  Cheers, Maria.
 


Kim was highly recommended to us through friends, when we were faced with doing a Military Relocation move.  From day one, we know we had the right choice.  Kim is not only a very knowledgeable about the Ottawa area and market, but she understands the demands of a Military Relocation.

Of the many attributes Kim possesses as a Realtor, the following come to the forefront and would be the the reason that we would only recommend her as a Realtor, and will definitely work with her again on any future real estate transactions:

1-Highly professional-she was always engaged, prompt and courteous.
2-Knowledge of the area-she provided valuable information about the various areas to live, which was greatly appreciated for out of town buyers such as ourselves.
3-Outstanding communication skills- Kim listened carefully to our needs, responded immediately to all our questions, offered solutions where she could.
4-Most Importantly - Patience! Not once did we feel rushed, during what could have been a very stressful period, faced with only 5 days to find a home in a unfamiliar city, with a hot housing market: she made the whole experience extremely pleasurable.

Thank you again Kim for your incredible service, your hard work and above all your support and kindness!

“Kim helped us find the house that met our specific price and location needs. Throughout the home buying process Kim provided us with excellent advice, worked with our schedules, and thankfully never seemed to tire of our first timer questions or concerns. When we found the perfect place we were disappointed to find out that there were already three other offers. But we had Kim on our side and she gave us the tools to close the deal. Thanks for everything Kim.”  
Janette and Matt Rutledge


If you are looking for an amazing real estate representative with a huge heart I recommend Kim. We were blessed that she came into our lives when she did. We needed to move to get Justin in a certain school. She had a house for sale that no offers were to be taken on but heard our story and made it happen the same day then sold our other house in no time. We are forever grateful to you and love that we keep in touch. Our story is a special one in my heart.

Real estate agent extraordinaire. Look no further. This is a late thank you to Kim LaRiccia. She helped my daughter Kristina find the perfect starter home. She treated her like her own and made the house hunting a fun and memorable experience. Secondly, Kim looked after the rental of my parents home with the utmost care and professionalism. Listening and understanding to my parents concerns were second to none. She is exceptional and great at what she does because she cares. And she is an agent that after the deal is done still makes sure everything is going well. Thank you, Angela Lewis 


We as a family introduced to Kim by a coworker, for relocation. I worked with her for more than 3 weeks over the phone without meeting her in person to find appropriate property for my family. She was very keen and patient with regard to our needs. Very genuine and sincere with advising for the best choices and avoiding a bad decisions. I was in a very tight timing for browsing and scheduling house seeing. She did a great job to make this thing happened within no time. Upon meeting her in person, she was very friendly and caring for our needs. She picked up what we want within no time. And after we decided the property, she was in continuous contact even after the actual physical move. Kim did a great job by organizing everything and by expediting the paperworks and putting everything in order for a very smooth move. She was dealing with us as close friends or family. Never regret at all dealing with her, and I’ll strongly recommend her for everybody I know. She is very skillful and with high and great communication skills. She is true lady with great personality.

Kim was recommended to me by my neighbours who were selling a home for the first time and were very impressed by her guidance and the speed of the sale of their home. As a ‘seasoned’ seller I was impressed with her communications skills, professional assessment of the market, and willingness to go above and beyond through all the phases of the home sell. I highly recommend Kim to anyone selling a home and values team work!

 Kim was a fantastic agent and made the process of both buying and selling easy for us. She is a skilled negotiator and we felt she represented our interests very well in both transactions. She kept us informed at every stage of the process, and was available whenever we needed her. She gave us great advice on how to prepare our house for sale – she advised us where we were best to spend our time and money to get the greatest return for our investment. She’s knowledgeable, experienced, genuine, and always goes the extra mile for her clients. We felt she truly cared about our family and our needs. I have recommended her to friends, family, and colleagues.

“J’ai eu le plaisir et privilège d’avoir Kim pour l’achat de mes 2 propriétés.  Kim est une femme professionnelle et dévouée qui a plusieurs atouts dans son répertoire et les utilise de façon efficace et parfois de façon rapide lorsque nécessaire.  Je crois que Kim possède une très bonne connaissance du domaine de l’immobilier et je n’hésiterai pas à communiquer avec Kim pour mon prochain achat.  De plus, je recommande Kim à toutes les occasions qui se présentent.  Merci beaucoup Kim .

We’ve met Kim just by chance, and when she offered help, we said OK, nothing to lose. Yes, we lost nothing, in the other hand, we gained a lot, we gained a good friend. Kim guided us during our long journey for buying our first house in a pretty nice way. She was there always whenever we needed her, she never cancelled a phone call or didn’t answer an email. She gave us an impression that we’re the only clients she had got, I’m very sure that’s the same impression of all of her clients. Indeed, she was more than just an agent that wants to finish her work and run away. She searched for us a house as if she was searching for her own family. Kim was always honest, patient, and hard working in a way that we couldn’t even dream of. Finally, we’re very happy with our new house as well as our new friend.

My husband and I had a tricky relocation: we were moving from another country back to Canada and we had 8 days to find a new home. Before we even left for the trip Kim was organized and reassuring, helping to put us at ease in a very stressful situation. When we arrived she had booked off plenty of time for us and had a great line-up of houses scheduled for us to see, keeping in mind the constraints we were under travelling with a one year old. Kim knows the city well and she did extra neighbourhood research since location was so important to us. When we found a house we liked Kim was an excellent negotiator, keeping our best interests at heart, and going above and beyond to assist with the home inspection and communicating with the lawyer and bank to ensure that everything got done on time. On top of all this Kim was warm and professional and embraced having extra family members around during the process. We are so lucky to have had Kim help us find a home!

Testimonial for Kim St-Denis – Relocation

I’d like to take this opportunity to highly recommend Kim as a relocation agent. After two years of working in the United States, my employer relocated me back to Canada. I only had a few days to find a home in Ottawa and from my first contact with Kim she was excellent in setting up the essential steps that led to a very successful house hunting trip. She quickly established my requirements and preferences, researched and presented options leading up to my house hunting trip and then once on the ground in Ottawa she efficiently led me to view dozens of potential homes. By the end of the first day, I had found the perfect home and with Kim’s research and negotiating skills, I got it for a great price. Further, Kim was excellent in handling all the many items that followed the acceptance of offer. In summary, Kim St-Denis is a highly capable and personable agent with the skills and experience to manage complex relocation.

Kim, we would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the unbelievable service you offered us. We interviewed several real estate agents, and knew pretty much instantly that you were the right one for us. You never pressured us, you were straight forward, friendly and approachable.

You assisted us in preparing our home for sale, helped us in arranging minor renovations, and guided us through the process calmly and confidently.

I was initially nervous because we would be out of town for over a week while our home first went on the market – but you handled everything well, and ensured we could relax on our vacation.

In a market that wasn’t terribly strong, and with other houses on our street on the market for around four months, you managed to sell our home (at a price over what we had expected) in a little over two weeks. Absolutely amazing!

I also know I wasn’t an easy client – anxious, nervous, and emailing you constantly. But you never batted an eye – you gave me the support and answers I was always looking for. We definitely chose the right realtor.

You blew our minds. I would never hesitate to recommend you, and thank you to the moon and back for your patience and guidance.

Thank you for helping us move forward, and for making this as easy as possible, and ultimately, a very enjoyable experience.

In the summer of 2013, I hired Kim to sell my 3-storey Glebe home that had an income generating apartment in the basement. It was a tough market for sellers and an unusual property. Kim took on the challenge with the same tenacity and energy with which she embraces her volunteerism and athletics.
She filled my house with her personal staging tools, throw pillows, artwork, cases, centrepieces, lamps and turned my busy family home into a showpiece. The buyer later told me that it was the presentation of the house and won her heart. As any agent will tell you, staging is an important tool in getting top dollar. Kim poured herself and her possessions into my house.
Her analysis and honesty never left me doubting that she was on top of every market nuance and would adjust her strategy accordingly.
Quite frankly, Kim didn’t wait for a buyer, she hunted one down — in the nicest possible way!

I can’t begin to express my deep gratitude for everything that Kim did to help me buy my first home. She was recommended to me by a colleague and I still thank my lucky stars for the level of support, dedication, responsiveness and advice she offered me throughout the process. Kim is a power-house of knowledge in the real estate business. She was extremely competent, professional and insightful, and when things were not going as expected, she went way beyond the call of duty to personally make sure that issues (that seemed like mountains to me) were resolved. Thankfully, due to Kim’s expertise and remarkable dedication, the issues were resolved and the accelerated closing went through without a hitch.
I’m thrilled with my new home, and I was very happy to have Kim by my side to buy it. I would recommend her again and again.

 

Melanie Poulin-Delisle


Our home in Barrhaven was on the market for a year with no offers, first with Grapevine + MLS, then with an agent. Then we listed with Kim, and in three weeks we had three offers and a sale. Kim was amazing to work with. She had great suggestions for staging, was proactive in getting quality showings and followed up promptly to address concerns and reinforce positive impressions. At the end, her skill in closing with two competing offers was really impressive, and resulted in us getting a good price for the property. Kim’s personality and great people skills made it a real pleasure to deal with her. She is easily the best agent we have dealt with, and we would highly recommend her services to anyone.

 

Martin and Joyce Lax


Dear Kim,
My wife and I are adjusting well to our new home that you were no small part of in making it a reality.
The personal touch you have to make people comfortable and your knowledge of the Ottawa area was always evident in every step along the process.
The schools were very important to us and you were very much a part of that decision as well, helping us to locate to a neighbourhood that we like.
You have made our transition to Ottawa a pleasure. We wish you all the best.
Sincerely

I am writing this in appreciation to Kim for the wonderful professional service she game me in the purchase of my 2nd investment property.  She particularly impressed me with her attention to detail and she literally babysat me every step of the way.  She is the type of person that takes her job very seriously but also provided us with an unforgettable enjoyable experience. Many thanks and I have already recommended you to my friends. I can’t express my gratitude enough.

Kim helped us with selling and buying a home. She made the entire process smooth and we are very grateful for that. Working with Kim you can count on her to keep you informed and she knows the market and the Ottawa area. Thanks again for everything and being patient and helpful at times with our boys.

 

Nadia and Mario


It was a pleasure working with Kim. We found her very knowledgeable about the city and helped us narrow down where we wanted to live. Her positive attitude and dedication was an asset to us. We found our dream home and couldn’t be happier. Thank you for all your hard work.

 

Mohamed and Saima


We have worked with Kim on buying and selling our current house, aprox 3 years apart. As well as working like a busy bee to progress the purchase and the sale, Kim has always maintained a warm personal relationship with us, taking an interest when our baby girl was born and generally checking in with us from time to time. We always felt comfortable and secure and that we had someone on our side who really knew their way around the system and who would navigate safely us through the dangers and potential pitfalls of real estate as well as genuinely caring about our interests. The bottom line was that we did really well financially in our property transactions but equally as important was that the processes were more or less stress free thanks to Kim’s competence, confidence and assertiveness.

 

Simon and Crystal Furgeson


I highly recommend using Kim’s services. She helped me buy my first house and it was a dream working with her. She answered all of my question and made me feel ready for taking the plunge, even if I wasn’t completely sure. Not only is she competent, she’s also a very friendly person, which makes a big different in sometimes stressful situations. Again, thank you Kim for making it so easy!
