Ottawa is the capital city of Canada. It stands on the south bank of the Ottawa River in the eastern portion of southern Ontario. Ottawa borders Gatineau, Quebec; the two form the core of the Ottawaâ€“Gatineau census metropolitan area (CMA) and the National Capital Region (NCR). As of 2016, Ottawa had a city population of 934,243 and a metropolitan population of 1,323,783 making it the fourth-largest city and the fifth-largest CMA in Canada.Founded in 1826 as Bytown, and incorporated as Ottawa in 1855, the city has evolved into the political centre of Canada. Its original boundaries were expanded through numerous annexations and were ultimately replaced by a new city incorporation and amalgamation in 2001 which significantly increased its land area. The city name "Ottawa" was chosen in reference to the Ottawa River, the name of which is derived from the Algonquin Odawa, meaning "to trade".

With the assistance of a co-worker, and her trusty Smart phone, she negotiated the doubled-ended deal, ensuring both buyer and seller were serviced in a professional and swift manner. This commitment to client services extends to the four-legged members of a clientâ€™s family as well, as she once volunteered to walk a client's dog while an agent from another agency showed their house, as her client couldn't make it home in time for the showing.

After suffering a personal loss, Nancy was there for me not only professionally but she showed compassion. I’ve used Nancy’s services for both selling and renting properties. She works hard and all her work is professional from paperwork to photographing the home to closing the deal. She provided me with sound advice and guidance and she doesn’t miss a detail. I highly recommend Nancy as a kind and professional real estate agent.
Nancy was fantastic throughout the entire process of purchasing a home - very knowledgeable, attentive, kind and flexible. I got transferred from work in Toronto to the Ottawa office. Nancy was able to accommodate to my limited schedule with me living and working from Toronto, while only for a limited time I was in Ottawa for house hunting. I was thinking house hunting would've taken me a few months, but with a bit of luck and Nancy's help, I was able to find my dream house in a few days! I don't think everyone can expect such a quick find, but you'll know that with Nancy you'll have a wonderful agent. She will work tirelessly to help you find your dream home and work with your availability. Would recommend her to anyone in the Ottawa area!! Also, she has many great referrals for other professionals needed in purchasing or selling a home, who have been very professional and helpful as well.
Early spring 2020 I decided to sell a house in Ottawa and Nancy was my Realtor. I have been very impressed with the way she managed the selling process. My house was sold in less than 2 weeks. I really appreciated Nancy’s personality and professionalism. She has an excellent bilingual communication skill and made all possible efforts to make my husband and I feel comfortable and relax throughout the selling process, providing guidance and advice. She always returned our phone calls within less than 3 hours and provided answers to all of our questions. She prepared and proceeded with all paperwork on time and made sure we got them on time for signature. Nancy facilitated the signature process with a friendly user electronic tool. She was very care, meticulous and never missed or forgot any detail or clarification to insert in the documents. She dealt with the lawyer, buyer’s Realtor, property manager or any other involved party. She handled all challenges and issues, sometimes with her personal involvement in order to protect us. Everything went so smooth that since the closing date I received no complaint from any party. Nancy was also very efficient in finding a tenant for my other rental property. The rental process was so well managed that I got the price I was asking, with a serious and well organized tenant with whom I am very happy, stress less and in good relationship. Without any hesitation I would strongly recommend Nancy as a Realtor for any Real Estate transaction.
“We couldn’t have made it without you Nancy! So thankful for the great job you did for us. You helped us all along the process, always kind, patient and with very good professional advices. You understood smartly what we were looking for so you could match us with our perfect home. To anyone who is seeking for an agent: we highly recommend her services. Nancy, without you all along the way, we’ll never have been to get THE ONE! Thank you.”

Simple and effective is how I would describe the process. Honestly I was worried about selling my house in the middle of a pandemic lockdown. However, Nancy is very knowledgeable in combining of the use of technology and the good old art of reality that greatly made the process enjoyable. Everything from staging, photo taking, agreement signing, listing, offer considering to completion of the sale were all accomplished in the comfort and safety of my living room. There were showing(s) everyday and several offers to finally have an enticing offer accepted only 5 days after listing. Nancy continued liaising ensuring all needed documents were obtained until the handing over of the keys only 3 weeks after the house hit the market. I would definitely have Nancy as my agent as long as I am still in Ottawa.
I met Nancy for the first time about 4 years ago when I was looking for a rental unit for myself, my daughter and our two dogs. Not only did she find a place for us quickly, it met all our requirements and within my budget. Fast forward 3.5 years and we were again looking for a place to move to. Our criteria was not easy to match but she found us the perfect place to call home. We are very happy here and Nancy could not have made either one of these rental units, easier. The second move was during COVID 19 and the added stress was alleviated in great part by Nancy, despite the fact that she had just had a baby. I could not ask for a more dedicated or pleasant real estate agent, whether you are looking for a rental, a home to purchase or land to build on. You are always in good hands with Nancy Pugliese.
