Past Client Testimonials

I highly recommend Michel if you are looking to buy or sell a house. I sold my house with Michel and he was able to get me full price with a super fast sale! He invested a lot of his time with us and I appreciated his willingness to give up his time to help us sell our home and also find the perfect new home. I wouldn’t hesitate at all to recommend Michel if you are looking for a knowledgeable and experienced realtor that pays attention to all of the details!

Fadi Abu-Ruman

We sold our home and purchased a new one with Michel. The selling experience that he provided was more than we could have expected. Michel gave us all of the tools we needed to make our home as sale ready as possible. He and his team are definite experts – even providing advice and assistance with tradespeople. He was patient, understanding, gave us excellent advice and went above and beyond during the whole experience.

Michel sold our home within the first few hours of being on the market!

I can definitely say that I would recommend Michel to any of my friends or family that are looking to sell or purchase a home! Thanks Michel!

Erin Iverson

We decided to upgrade and sell our house 3 bedrooms 1 car garage to a 4 bedrooms and double car garage. Michel listened at our needs and conditions, he got us through the all process to prepare our house for the market and to start looking for houses matching our needs. He was very professional and took care of everything. He dedicated a lot of his time to us, even some of his family time, late nights etc… the result is we found the house we were looking for and our house was sold in the same time. We got both done in the same week. Merci beaucoup Michel. I will strongly recommend you to my family and friends and other people as well. You have to try it to believe it…lol… we are now ready to move to a new chapter of our life.

Mario Formica

Excellent real estate agent. Michel was very understanding and sympathetic to our situation. He was responsive to our needs, he showed up when he said he would and he communicated well. Our pictures were done promptly and our house sold in less then a week for almost 3% over asking price. Thanks for all your hard work Michel!!!!

Terry Eix

We loved our experience with Michel Damphousse and would recommend his services to our friends and family any day.

With Michel, we have never felt under pressure to buy or sell. Our home buying search took quite some time but Michel was always available to help us when needed. During the sale of our home, he was present and devoted a lot of his time to help us get it ready.

Michel is professional, highly dedicated to his work and extremely friendly.

Thank you Michel!

Remi Bellemare

Avec Michel Damphousse, nous nous sommes jamais sentis sous pression d’acheter ou de vendre notre propriété. Nous avons visité plusieurs maisons sur une longue période de temps. Michel était toujours disponible rapidement avec un grand sourire pour nous aider au besoin. Lors de la vente de notre maison, il était présent et a dévoué énormément de son temps pour nous aider avec le “staging” et toutes les autres étapes de la vente. Michel est professionnel, dévoué à 100% à son travail et très sympathique. Nous avons adoré notre expérience avec lui et recommenderons ses services à nos amis et famille. Merci Michel!

Mireille Lacoursière

Je vous recommande Michel pour la vente de votre maison à 200%. C’est une personne très dévouée et professionnelle, toujours disponible à répondre à toutes questions. Dès qu’un pépin surgit, il est là pour régler la situation. Agent très pro-actif, il ne laisse rien à l’improviste. J’ai été plus que satisfait de ces services.

Michel est un homme très professionnel et très dévoué pour son métier. C’est un agent extraordinaire qui connaît très bien son travail et qui se livre corps et âme au service de ses clients. Il est très patient et très humoristique. Il sait s’adapter aux différentes personnalités de ses clients.

Pour la vente de notre maison, on avait peur du stress, que tout cela pouvait provoquer. Par contre, Michel nous a rassuré avec pleine confiance et il avait complètement raison. Michel est un passionné de son travail, ce que nous aimons de lui. Il n’a pas d’heures et ne connaît ni faim, ni soif. Il s’y met à 200% jusqu’à transformer la maison à son goût et au goût du client bien sûr, pour une réalisation parfaite.

Nous recommandons Michel à tous ceux et celles qui ont une maison à vendre ou à acheter. Nous ne pensons pas qu’il y a un meilleur agent au monde que cet homme. Il sait comment prendre le stress des autres sur ses épaules. Notre maison a été vendue dans l’espace de 24 à 36 heures de temps. Merci Michel pour ton dévouement, ta passion et ton amour pour ton travail.

Lucrece Jean-Charles

Michel made buying a house a positive and amazing adventure. He was fast, reliable, trustworthy, easy to communicate with, fun, and has a very warm personality. He took our needs and wants and made it into a reality when he showed us the house of our dreams in the right price range.

I would recommend him to everyone and use him again in the future.

Jessica Mazik

Michel goes above and beyond for his clients. He handled the sale of our two properties and the purchase of our forever home. We were impressed with his dedication, integrity and attention to detail. We would highly recommend working with this outstanding professional.

Matt & Agnes Warren

Our home buying experience with Michel was TOP NOTCH.

Before we began, Michel took the time to sit down with us to discuss and UNDERSTAND the type of home best for us based on the needs of careers and our growing family. With Michel, we would always know ahead of time of new listings that fit our criteria. He didn’t stop there. When the best deals came up, Michel would call us immediately and promptly booked showings. He even picked us up for a showing when our car was in the garage! Talk about DEDICATION to clients! Once we found the right home for us, Michel acted quickly to draw up the offer. He knows this process inside and out, and worked EFFICIENTLY to get our offer accepted at the right price point. Next, Michel connected us with a lawyer, mortgage broker, insurance broker and more from his VAST PROFESSIONAL NETWORK. He knows everyone, and only works the best!

It would be an understatement to say that we were in good hands throughout our home buying experience. Michel made the journey of buying our first home PLEASANT, EXCITING, and STRESS-FREE. You will find Michel’s FRIENDLINESS and PROFESSIONALISM is surpassed only by his EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE, KNOWLEDGE and EXPERTISE in the Ottawa real-estate business. I would rate 6 stars if I could!

David Dunn

If you use Michel as your Real Estate Agent you will not be disappointed!

His availability, communication, and attention to detail were top notch, and we were very impressed with the entire experience. This was our second attempt at selling our condo in what was a challenging market. He provided an accurate assessment of our property and brought out the ”A” team including a professional photographer, videographer and staging consultant. He clearly possesses advanced social media and networking skills which resulted in having our listing broadly disseminated within a very short time. We sold within days of listing… rather impressive results!

If you are seeking a personable agent who is committed to his profession, this is the guy!

Pierre Leblanc

Michel was extremely professional and resourceful and has guided my family and I through the buying process flawlessly. With Michel’s hard work, we were able to locate the exact home we were looking for and couldn’t be happier. I would highly recommend him to anyone who’s looking to buy or sell a home.

Thank you Michel!

Mohamed Faqi

Michel is a true professional. His service not only met but exceeded our expectations. Michel’s knowledge, dedication, and expertise made the process of selling our house and the purchase of another house stress free. He made sure he understood our needs, made these his priority, and was constantly in communication with us which was truly appreciated. The quality of his service was quickly apparent from his suggestions to prepare the house for sale, photos and video of the house which were well beyond the norm, and the execution of his plan to market the house. Working with Michel was enjoyable given his passion and commitment. Our decision to work with Michel was the right one!

Pierre Paquette

My mother passed away last year, and now my father 2 months ago. So now came the time to start the whole process of selling their house; a long, very daunting and stressful task I thought this would be. However, through a referral we found Michel, thankfully I must say!! He is so professional, knowledgeable and helpful to get the job done promptly and efficiently. He is also very quick to respond to his clients and keeps us updated. So easy to talk to and kind which, I find is very rare these days! Upon meeting, we knew he was the right agent for us, and we were correct! The house sold quickly and the whole process was smooth.

I HIGHLY recommend Michel to anyone who needs a real estate agent, he is the right one for the job.

Line Morris

From our first meeting to the « sold » day, Michel was professional, engaged, and fully dedicated. His attention to detail is incomparable and his service is top notch. Michel is excellent, very passionate and gets the job done! Merci beaucoup Michel!!!

Junie Grandmont

Michel is patient, knowledgeable, accommodating, supportive and has valuable, important, constructive criticism for any potential client! He exceeds the expectations of any realtor and will go above and beyond to make sure everyone involved gets the best service available. I would recommend his service above all! As far as ratings go, there are not enough stars. Thank you for everything you’ve done to make the sale of our home possible.

Melissa Oakley

I work in sales and I have to say Michel is Grade A++ material! Amazing experience and being a first time home buyer, he made the experience easy and fun. He held my hand through the process and kept me informed every step of the way. He is realistic, fun, honest, and caring for his clients. Recommend him to everyone who needs a home! Thanks for all your hard work Michel!

Anthony Bourdeau

Michel was a great help with my purchase of another home and in representing my best interests. He was also of tremendous assistance with the sale of my current home. He is very well connected with competent trades people and other services key to real estate. Michel is highly motivated and dedicated. He made me feel like a very important client. I am happy to recommend Michel as both a buyer’s and seller’s agent.

Diane Gervais

Having made the move to Ottawa from the West Coast several months ago, it was time to start looking at finding my future home. I was referred to Michel and was blown away with his professionalism, knowledge and down to earth personality from day one. Upon finding my dream home, Michel went to agent mode, with his determination and master negotiation skills, my offer was accepted amongst a competing over. He asked me to trust him throughout the process and so glad I did. He went above and beyond making the purchase of my home stress free. Michel is one of a kind, you will never regret making the initial contact. He will always be my go to for referral to anyone looking for a realtor and for myself.

Lyndsay Stark

We are very pleased to have had Michel as our selling agent. He is dedicated, hardworking, and knowledgeable. We are very much impressed with the quality of service that he has provided. Michel has gone above and beyond a conventional service a sale agent can offer. With those high quality photos and videos and diligent weekend open houses, his efforts has paid off. We had plenty of showings and most with positive feedbacks. As a result, our home has sold much faster than the average listed houses historically, and at a great price too. I highly recommend other home owners who want to sell their home to use Michel’s services. He will prove to you that you have made the right decision!

Lingqing Zhang

Having moved to Ottawa recently from Botswana and not being familiar with the Canadian market, buying a house seemed like an impossible and daunting process. Michel made everything feel so easy, he walked me through the whole process and I felt reassured and confident in my decision. He was simply brilliant, patient, knowledgeable and he constantly supported me through everything. I am very lucky to have found an agent who always had my best interest at heart and had the patience to guide me. I would highly recommend Michel to any buyer or seller for his professional service. I can proudly say that I am now a Canadian home owner thanks to Michel.

Arifa Tajbhai

Michel Damphousse offered us a service above and beyond our expectations, and in a perfect timeframe given the season.

From the moment I met Michel, I knew I was in front of a real professional and moreover a person of integrity, experience and real good values. I couldn’t have had a better experience in the process and the result was excellent.

First of all, Michel was always constructive, confident, efficient and helpful. He made the sale of my home a personal challenge, as he would have done for his own house. In my case, Michel was also able to listen and answer honestly and frankly to my interrogations and doubts, sharing his own perceptions and feelings in front of my dubious or even negative comments. It’s part of his honesty and integrity, and I am grateful to him for that. He was right each time.

Second, obviously thanks again to his personal qualities and professional approach, he has created around him an excellent team and network of top professionals that you would require in such a process, and all at an excellent price!

Finally, I highly recommend other owners thinking about selling, even distrustful ones like me, to benefit of his services. Be sure I would ask Michel Damphousse to help me sell again – or buy if I was staying in the region but that’s another story. Thanks Michel, we will keep in touch!

Franck De La Mata

Un mot pour souligner mon appréciation à l’égard de Michel Damphousse. Une personne intègre, extrêmement sensible aux besoins de son client, très soucieux de le satisfaire. Des échanges – en français (bravo pour le bilinguisme!) – toujours agréables et constructifs tout au long du processus de vente. Je le recommande sans aucune hésitation pour son professionnalisme, son souci de l’excellence, son honnêteté et son grand sens humain. Un réel coup de cœur!

Liane Renaud

Michel was the best choice I could have made when it came to a real estate agent. He was patient and persistent, he was connected and available at any time, he had many connections in the industry who made the process easy and stress free, and I felt like he took the extra time for me. He was professional in his appearance and performance, and seemed to have a genuine love for what he was doing. He gave me confidence in selling and I don’t regret my choice at all. I have recommended him to a few friends and they were all very happy with his services as well.

Thanks Michel!

Josh Macfarlane

Michel helped my boyfriend and I rent our dream apartment! We’re moving from Toronto to Ottawa so it was a little daunting for us. Michel worked with our time line and made sure he made time for us for our one time visit to Ottawa before the move. He replies quickly, and made this stressful situation run smoothly!
I really appreciated him giving us as much time and attention as he did, so when we’re ready to buy a home we won’t hesitate to give him a call!

Thanks again Michel!

David and Daniella

Working with Michel Damphousse was an amazing experience!

Michel exemplifies the meaning of professionalism and dedication to his clients. We were extremely impressed by the quality service we received from Michel. We have been fortunate to use his services for 3 properties in the last 6 months! His advice and hard work ethic assisted us in the sale of our condo in 3 short weeks above our listing asking price, the sale of our current home in only 7 days at full asking price and finally assisting us in finding our family’s next dream home. The time and investment he dedicated to us throughout the process was second to none. Michel went far beyond what we expected of a real estate agent, patiently answering questions and being available to help us at any hour of the day.

We are so pleased and grateful that we met him and had him as our agent and now as a friend! Michel, thank you so much for everything you have done for us!

Chantal & Alain Robichaud

Michel was absolutely wonderful to deal with! He demonstrated such profound knowledge within his field which facilitated the home-buying experience. He was very professional and also a pleasure to deal with in that I never felt neither intimated nor as a ‘buyer’. It was a very easy purchase experience. Michel always very accommodating to my busy schedule; he was up very early to show me some properties, and would answer all questions throughout the day in such a timely fashion (if not immediately). I can honestly say I’ve never dealt with someone as patient, accommodating, hardworking, professional, and someone who truly acknowledges all my needs and wants in a property as well as Michel. Thank you again!

Roxanne Ibrahim

Michel Damphousse is a fantastic agent, dedicated, hard working and always available. I had been searching for a house for quite a while and was uncertain of what I wanted exactly; Michel was patient and showed me many homes before I finally made an offer on a house. Even after after the closing, Michel still keeps in touch. I highly recommend him.

Marylène Gagné

I recently had the pleasure of having Michel help me with locating my new home. Michel negotiated the best deal, and showed me many different options before making my final decision. He is patient, reliable, and goes above and beyond your expectations. He was always available when needed and it was a pleasure having him work for me! He also seems to love what he does and does everything with integrity.

Thanks again!

Joe Cook

I can not say enough great things about Michel Damphousse! As an agent and as a person, Michel exemplifies the meaning of hard work and dedication to his clients and friends. The quality of service and knowledge that Michel possesses is beyond anything I could have imagined. Michel went over and above with the sale and purchase of our property and forever home. We are so pleased and grateful that we met him and had him as our agent and now as a friend! Michel, thank you so much for everything you have done for us! We will forever be grateful.

Scott Sheppard

I would highly recommend Michel. My experience with Michel was great, I am looking for a home to move in immediately. With Michel’s help I am able to move into the home within 2 weeks of my home search.

First of all he is dedicated and most best part of him is, he always tries to understand client’s requirements. Even though if client requirements are weird or else if the requirements are changed in the due course, he would just consider them without any hesitation. He puts his 100% efforts on fulfilling client requirements.

Thanks Michel!

Chandrasekhar Yarramsetty

I recently tried selling my house with the assistance of ComFree but it was a hassle trying to coincide the showings at different times of the day. After many weeks on the market, I have decided to sell with Michel Damphousse who was very professional and strategic. Within hours of listing my home with Michel, we’ve received an offer nearly full asking price. I highly recommend Michel to anyone who are thinking about selling their home in a fast time frame and with the least amount of stress.

Louis B.

We were lucky enough to ask to view a house that Michel was listing. We didn’t have an agent and our house hunting forays seemed daunting. Michel was the answer! His positive attitude and energy kept us going until we found the perfect fit. We were in good hands, whether it was identifying pros and cons or looking up the right people for legal, reno, or mortgage work. We would recommend Michel in a heartbeat.

Nizar and Aline M.

It was a pleasure to meet Michel, an excellent and energetic professional who has satisfied our needs beyond our expectations. He understands and knows the real estate market extremely well in order to assist you with the purchase of your home. Michel was incredibly patient during the buying process and his job is not just a real estate agent, its passion and dedication. Thank you Michel!

Gabriel P.

À l’écoute et disponible, Michel a été efficace pour nous trouver la maison que nous recherchions. Nous le remercions pour son professionnalisme irréprochable et surtout sa patience.

Ses compétences, son grand dévouement et ses conseils m’ont été d’une grande aide et n’hésiterai pas à faire appel à lui pour des futurs occasions.

Thank you, Michel!

Elena T.

Michel has done such a fantastic job in guiding us through the process of buying our first home! I told him that we needed him to be our teacher as well as our agent because we were so nervous feeling like we knew so little entering the market for our first time. He walked us through each step, took the time to help us figure out what we wanted and then helped us get it at a great price. We give Michel our highest recommendation! Thanks Michel

Robert B.

If you are looking to buy or sell a home, Michel is the agent for you. He went above and beyond for my husband and I to buy our first home. He knew exactly what I wanted (knowing I’m really picky) and he found it for us at an amazing price. A HUGE THANK YOU to you Michel!

Christine B.

Michel did a wonderful job helping us find the perfect home for us! It has all the features we wanted and at the price we wanted to pay. We just love it! Selling a house that I have loved and lived in for 26 years was not easy. Michel was there for us every step of the way. He helped us prepare the house for the photographer and the showings. The listing looked great. He was always available to answer our questions and was always calm and professional. That was very reassuring to me as it was stressful to put my house for sale after all those years. We were very lucky to get an offer the first day that it listed! Michel was very organized and made sure the purchase of our new home and the sale of our home went smoothly! I would highly recommend Michel as an agent to all my friends and family. He is very dedicated and is excellent at his job!

Si vous cherchez un agent qui est parfaitement bilingue, Michel est l’agent pour vous. Il est excellent et nous le recommandons fortement!

Lisette F.

Michel was very helpful in my house purchase. He moved fast and had initiation on how best to make the offers. After the deal for the house was completed he continued to help me. He handled a lot of steps for me since I live internationally. I also used his rental services and he found me a tenant that would take a 2 year lease. It only took one month to find a tenant even though it was December.

Thu Trang P.

Michel was an absolute champion negotiating the purchase of our new home. At the time, the seller had received multiple offers and if it wasn’t for his boldness and competence, we would never have gotten this house. He was also very patient with us and kept us in the loop the entire time. We are extremely picky when it comes to realtors due to some bad experiences but Michel delivered and we highly recommend him.

Amelie M.

Last year, I had an opportunity to avail services of Mr. Michel Damphousse for searching a property. I found him to be very hard working, sincere, dedicated and well versed with his work. He was proactive in his approach and guided me pretty well during the entire process. With his assistance, I was able to locate a suitable property within the least possible time. I appreciate his honesty and professionalism and wish him good luck in his career ahead.

Vishwa Nath Goel

Second Secretary & Head of Chancery, High Commission of India

My experience with Michel has been such a good one, I still cannot believe it. Buying my first condo has been surprisingly a sweet and smooth step in my life, and all of it thanks to Michel. From the first contact, he was not only professional and polite but accommodating and listening to my concerns as well. Communicating with Michel was flawless, through emails and phone, early in the morning, late at night and during the weekends (both days). Moreover, he went beyond his “tasks” and dealt with the lawyer and the home inspector. There is so much more I could say about Michel that a page would not be enough. I can truly say I am more than happy about my journey with Michel. He is a gem! Ps. Plus, he’s fully bilingual!

Sarra C.

My family and I recently moved back to Canada from overseas. Getting everything in order was quite a tall task to say the least. When we began the daunting task of house hunting, we met Michel at our second viewing. Although the home he was showing wasn’t the perfect fit for us, we were very impressed with Michel’s professionalism and honesty. We asked Michel to be our realtor moving forward and he took care of everything to ensure a smooth transition into our new home. He went the extra mile on multiple occasions and we would highly recommend his services to anyone seeking assistance to buy or sell a home.
