This has been one of my favourite adventures. In less than a month we bought and sold our home and got almost asking price!
My husband and I called Erin about the house we thought would be perfect for our family and had to have it! After our call, Erin immediately jumped into action to help make our dream a reality. Her excitement for us and every home she has sold is awesome! She gets pure joy in what she does and loved that we were able to be apart of that. Thank you for making what can be a very stressful experience, a walk in the park. Royal LePage is very lucky to have you on their team.
Erin and Diane helped us find the perfect lot in the Carp area, she was always there for us and provided great support.
I would highly recommend Erin and her team!
Thank you so much for making this purchase so easy!
We are very fortunate to have had Diane by our side in the search for our forever home and the sale of our old home. Having Diane as a real estate agent truly meant that you had someone by your side. When a new house popped up on our search, she always made herself available and made sure to get a viewing (frequently same day). She is a delight to work with and made the whole process of buying and selling a home a fun experience.
Just a short note to express our many thanks to you and Diane for making an otherwise stressful and emotional time in our lives a smooth transition. Your professionalism, knowledge, guidance, and astute sense of the market was invaluable, and I am certain, key to having ensured the quick sale of our home.
As you both know this was a very difficult decision which we had to make due to Michaels rapidly progressing Parkinson’s. Having two such kind, generous and always cheerful agents working on our behalf was a blessing. Michael joins me in thanking you both again and we will not hesitate in recommending you to all our friends (I have already taken the liberty of doing so).
We wish you both a very joyous summer.
We recently worked with Erin Phillips and Diane Hostettler of Royal LePage Realty to purchase a home in Stittsville. Erin was available to show us the property on a Saturday evening, with barely any notice. As it turned out, we immediately felt it would be a good fit for our daughter, a first-time home owner. We then worked intensely with Diane who very patiently guided us through the entire process, from the very beginning to move-in day, and continues to be of support. Diane and Erin were always available, very approachable, extremely knowledgeable, pleasant and quick to respond to any and all of our questions. We had a great experience working with Erin and Diane and would not hesitate to recommend them to others.
I am someone who never writes reviews and never uses Real Estate Agents, …until now. I have bought and sold at least five homes on my own over the years without an agent. I decided to use Erin for the purchase of my latest home and was overwhelmed at how much I had missed and lost in my previous real estate sales and purchases. Erin went well beyond what is asked of an agent by paying attention to all of the details, knowing the industry inside and out, the demographics and providing her own contacts in the industry to research and inspect property. Then there was the negotiations which were over my head in knowing the true value of the home and having an answer for every question that came back to us. I could not believe how much I learned and saved in this process. Again, I always believed I did a good job on my own until I met Erin. I know now how much money and time I lost in doing this myself. I used her again for the sale of my high end home (which I would not have done in the past thinking I could save money) which has a select target market. I know for certain I received much more for my house than I would have doing it on my own. Everything from staging and timing to negotiations. She is very educated, experienced and well connected, connecting us with the right buyers at the right time. It was just so easy. I will and do recommend Erin to anyone I come across thinking of buying or selling their home. She is the best agent by far in the Ottawa area.
I had the true pleasure of retaining Erin Phillips as my agent! All I can say is wow! I’ve used many agents on previous deals both on residential and commercial purchases, none of which compared to Erin! Within 2 weeks of retaining her she found my dream home and negotiated a great deal! She walked me through all the steps and was present during water/well and home inspection! 4 hours on site that day helping us investigate the home, she was not afraid to get her hands dirty (she actually crawled into the attic during the inspection). This girl is not only smart but tough! I will certainly use her again and again on my next projects! Thank you Erin!
We just wanted to send you a very special Thank You. With my husband being a member of the military, and posted to another station this summer, we faced the daunting task of selling our home AND buying another in an extremely short period of time. You made a potentially stressful experience painless.
In a day where agents just want to make their commission and don’t care about their clients needs, your integrity and professionalism really stood out and are a rare find in business today. We were very impressed at how quickly you got potential buyers looking at our house, especially happy to see our home sell so quickly, and for an amount that was considerably higher then our asking price. Furthermore, your advice, knowledge and amazing work ethic were essential in helping us find our our dream home at the new location. We greatly appreciated that you were always quick to answer calls & emails and instantly responsive to any concerns. Your efforts went well and above what could have been expected of an agent. We will certainly use you in our future postings to the Ottawa area, and highly recommend you to our family and friends. Royal LePage Team Realty is fortunate to have you as a member of their team.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
It has been so much fun working with you two between my house and the girls.
Working with Diane and Erin Phillips made our home search and purchase a truly pleasurable experience. Their attention to our ‘must haves’ and preferences, was met with many home options for us to choose from. We quickly found our dream home, and in the neighbourhood we wanted. The team exceeded our expectations, and made our big purchase and big success!
We cannot thank Erin enough for finding us our first home! During a time that is usually stressful and overwhelming, Erin made it exciting and effortless. Her passion, dedication and commitment made this huge decision and process so fun and great! Unbelievable value in the location we wanted. We are beyond lucky to have had Erin’s help and guidance through this whole process and can now call ourselves “Home Owners”. Thank you Erin!
Deanna and I want you to know how much we enjoyed working with you to find our home. While trying to attempt a search on our own, we realized quickly that we needed professional help as there were too many avenues to choose from.
After reading your newsletter we decided to call you and see what you had to offer us. Well, that call was the best decision we made. Your enthusiasm, professionalism along with your personality, made our venture a pleasurable experience. Your knowledge of the real estate industry, not only made us aware of the obvious items, but other items we would never have recognized ourselves. The contacts you provided for home inspection, mortgage, insurance, lawyers, etc, made it easy to finalize all transactions.
There were times we thought we would never find a home we would cherish living in. However you always found ways to encourage us to continue the search. Now we sit this morning sipping our coffee in our “dream home” that you helped us find. “Thank you” does not describe the appreciation we feel towards you and all the effort you put into our most important decision we have made together.
“We were immediately impressed with Erin’s energy and passion to sell our property.
Getting regular feedback from Erin with respect to calls, inquiries and showings was a benefit we had not received from other agents in the past.
We will hire Erin again!”
It amazes me how you go out of your way to give a personal touch to your work. I am so happy that Dee gave me your card.
I would like to thank you for the great results I got with the sale of my townhouse. Your services made all the difference and helped me go through the process with confidence and peace of mind.
I was impressed by your ability and how easy you were to reach.
Your pricing strategy was informed, inspired and right on the “money”. I was able to accept a conditional offer for 98.5% of the asking price after only 10 days on the market. I believe that the selling price we chose for the listing allowed for the optimum scenario: a quick sale at a price extremely close to the listing.
I will not hesitate to give your name to anyone looking for real estate services or expertise, as I am sure their real estate needs will be taken care of by one of the best.”
Well it’s almost one year since we’ve been our new home. It’s been great for our family and we thoroughly enjoy this house. I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your help in finding a wonderful place to share with our family and friends.
When we took Diane Hostettler on as our agent, we basically wanted the same as other sellers. We wanted the best possible price and a quick closing for our home. In addition, we only wanted to be kept informed when appropriate and involved when necessary. It was up to Diane to get our home sold. She provided good suggestions when we were listing and then worked hard for us through the marketing and sales process. She met our expectations and our requirements. Most importantly, Diane got the job done.
