We couldn’t have asked for better assistance in the purchase of our first home. Mike’s understanding of the Ottawa market was extremely valuable, which he combined with exceptional service by responding to our questions and concerns without delay. He takes a proactive approach to his work, which allowed us to anticipate and deal with any obstacles before they arose. Further to that, Mike carries a unique sense of professionalism wherein he understands and respects his clients’ needs on a personal level by going above and beyond what is required for the transaction. We’re very happy together in our new home and would recommend Mike to all of our friends and family.
We feel very fortunate to have worked with Mike when selling our home, and when purchasing our new home.
We were incredibly picky when it came to finding our dream home. We can't imagine how frustrating this must have been for Mike, but he never let it show for a second! A few times we toured homes that met all of our criteria, but just didn't feel right. Mike never put any pressure on us; he would tell us repeatedly that this is the most important purchase of our lives and we need to be sure it feels right. He always responded promptly, was flexible, did his best to accommodate our schedules, and was lovely enough to offer us rides to and from showings. We probably shouldn't say this, but it felt like he could be reached at absolutely any time! When we did find our dream home (in the middle of the holiday season), he patiently went through all of the paperwork with us, while working quickly to make sure it became our home for the best possible price!
When selling our current home, we were quite amazed that Mike provided us with the services of a stager; we didn't think that was included in the fees of most realtors. We know that this service made a huge difference in how quickly our home sold. When our first offer came in, it was very clear that Mike was doing everything he could to make sure that any deal done was in our best interest. We're sure that we would not have received our asking price after 2 days on the market were it not for his expertise.
Any issues that arose (through home inspections), Mike worked around the clock talking to contractors and other agents, in order to resolve things as quickly and as stress-free as he could for us, while making sure that things worked out in our best possible interest.
It can feel like there are more downs than ups when selling and purchasing homes. We always felt better knowing that Mike would take care of any issues that came up. He alleviated the stress and made the experiences much more enjoyable!
Hello Mike: The house is sold, there was an offer with a week . You made it seem so easy, but in reality it was a lot of work on your part. The timing of the listing, the market analysis , the fact binder available for potential purchasers to review. The home stager and photographer also played a part in the success.
The updates on the construction of my new home in Ingersoll, were well beyond the scope of your commitment and very much appreciated.
They say selling a home can be a stressful time, but with the right real estate professional it was not so. Thank you very much.
Mike, I can't find the words to say just how important a role you played in helping me make the move from Toronto to Ottawa. In truth, there ARE no words - it was such a comfort knowing you were in my corner helping me to find a new home. I can't thank you enough. You were always available to answer my questions and concerns and went above and beyond in so many ways. My family and I will happily recommend you to anyone looking for a fantastic Realtor.
When we first approached Mike about wanting to buy a new home Mike first talked to us on what we were planning with our current house sell vs rent. Once we decided that we were going to sell Mike immediately had a staging consultant come into our home. That was one of the best things that we could have done it gave us lots of time to work on making the appropriate changes.
Mike gave an honest opinion on the properties we were looking at and we felt zero pressure. It took us a couple of months until we found something that we were happy with on the market. All through that time Mike kept an open line of communication with us, again we never felt pressured.
Once we found the house we wanted negotiations went very smooth. When it came time to sell the effort we put in with the staging really put our house apart from the others on the market. We were listed for only 20 days before we sold!
We used Mike's contacts for Staging, Painting & Cleaning and we were very happy with everything. The Stager, Christine Gaudet was very professional, she gave us a plan to work towards.The painter, Brian Osborne - was very efficient. He had a crew of 4 guys paint our whole house in 2 days!!!! For the same cost that it would have taken one person 2 weeks.The cleaners made our house spotless before photos, and gave us a good base to maintain during showings.
When we were losing steam in getting the place ready Mike was there to give us a push to keep things on track. If you are looking for a Realtor for either buying or selling, I would tell you to look no further than Michael Lewicki.
"I have dealt with many realtors in a short period of time and will no longer need to search for another realtor in the future as Mike was a perfect match for my needs. Mike is absolutely fantastic, realistic and very professional. He was quick to respond to any of my questions and was available to meet for showings based on my schedule. I will definitely recommend Mike to anyone looking for a 'no-pressure' realtor. Thanks Mike - you're awesome"
Mike Lewicki recently represented my wife and I during our last house purchase. Mike guided us through the entire process making the search for our new home easy and enjoyable. Mike went above and beyond when a house our heart was set on caused Mike some concerns. Despite the guarantee of a hefty commission, Mike talked us down while showing us the potential issues with our chosen house that we were actively pursuing. Ultimately we found another house even more perfect and newer than the first, in our desired neighbourhood and for much less money.
We certainly will use Mike as our Realtor in the future and would happily recommend him to anyone without hesitation.
Mike Lewicki was a wonderful real estate agent from the get go. He worked hard with us to get to know the kind of house and neighbourhood we were looking for and used his knowledge of the market to find us the perfect home. We appreciated that he did not rush us into purchasing a home. Rather, he worked round-the-clock to find us the best fit. His dedication and commitment shone through in the little things he would do for his clients - from being present for our home inspection, meeting us at our workplace during our busy schedules, liaising with our lawyer to visiting us on moving day to make sure everything was going smoothly. A top notch Realtor!
From the time I mentioned to Mike that I was interested in selling my town house, to the eventual close of the sale, Mike did an exceptional job of listening to me, answering my questions, and providing lots of market information and suggestions to make an informed decision on how to proceed. His knowledge of the market, his network of investors, his tools to make the house show at its best helped me sell the house in the price range I was hoping for, and in a very short time with little inconvenience to our family.
He was a pleasure to work with and I always felt he was looking out for my best interests. He was always available any day of the week, any time of the day and went above and beyond to make sure the process went smoothly. He was efficient and professional. He is someone you want in your corner.
I would confidently recommend Mike to anyone interested in any type of real estate decision, whether buying, selling, or investing.
“Mike and Adam were incredibly professional and organized, but most importantly they were effective realtors that got the job done fast. My husband and I needed to get our home to market fast and with the assistance of Mike we were able to have our house market ready in two weeks. Mike was always incredibly prompt and insightful in responding to our inquiries and requests. Mike and Adam are knowledgeable and down to earth. Working with them as realtors was like working with close friends. With their help we sold our house in the tight time frame our situation required. We would highly recommend them and already have!”
