As first time home buyers the Hamre team really took care of us and exceeded our expectations! Our questions were always answered quickly. Would definitely recommend the Hamre team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!
Lisa S - Buyer
We purchased a home in Ottawa, while living in Toronto. Karen made the process very easy and provided us with a FaceTime walk through of the home to help us better visualize the space. She was very knowledgeable about the neighbourhood/area we were looking into and was able to answer every question and address every concern - no matter how small. Karen returned my calls and emails right away and was in touch with me almost every morning throughout the process. I would definitely recommend Karen to anyone looking to buy a home in the Ottawa area.

Barbara Daniela Gandolfo - Buyers
From the moment one meets Greg Hamre, you instinctively know that he is looking out for your best interests. He is extremely personable, friendly, caring and reliable. Very quickly you realize that Greg has a solid understanding of marketing real estate. His stellar presentation of our home and property by scripted video attracted much attention. He exudes optimism, confidence and portrays true professionalism. He is one who plans his work and works his plan, until the job is done. We highly recommend Greg Hamre.
Wayne and Deborah McCuen - Sellers
We were able to buy the house of our dreams, and it was all thanks to Chelsea. She was patient with us and listened to our needs and wants. We were very confident in our offers because of the professional advice we were given by Chelsea and her knowledge about the market and the neighbourhood we were buying in. She made sure that we were getting the most value out of our offer based on the house, its location, and the items to be included with the house. We would be very happy to work with her again in the future
Nyssa & Alexander, Rockland - Buyers
Steve was professional throughout the process. He had a professional stager come into our home before the photographer. He checked in and stayed in touch with us before the house became active and during the showings.
Cindy + Dave - Sellers
Chelsea is an absolute pleasure to work with! She was very knowledgeable about the area and was able to answer all of our property questions! Keeping a professional approach, she was still very friendly and comforting throughout our first ever home purchase! We would be more than happy to work with her and Hamre Team at RE/MAX Affiliates for our next buy! 
Chanelle & Trevor - Buyers
Greg was an important part of the buying of our new home and the selling of our current home. In this extremely unpredictable market, Greg’s professionalism, experience and dedication allowed us to sit back and enjoy the process without any major stress or worry. He was always there for us when we wanted to view a house, and knew enough to sway us away from places he knew wouldn’t be a fit for our family. A Family first man who during this whole process made us feel like we were his family. Greg is a true gentleman, honest and tells you what you need to hear not what you want to hear. We truly appreciated that about him.
Steve Bisson - Buyer & Seller
Greg exceeded our expectations, by securing our dream home, and selling our existing home during a pandemic! This was a major logistical challenge, as we were operating under very tight timelines, however, Greg's in-depth knowledge of the Ottawa market, along with his experience and savvy negotiation skills made our dreams become a reality! In both instances, he had a specific strategy, and executed it flawlessly. He communicated his plan clearly, and he was able to answer all of our questions in a timely and efficient manner. He kept us apprised of new developments and explained the possible outcomes at each stage of this process. We extensively researched numerous realtors, however, Greg's reputation and experience convinced us he was the professional who could make things happen. His firm's social media footprint is extensive, which is so vital in today's market. He was able to create tremendous exposure for our existing home, which created a multiple offer situation. He was able to highlight the key features of our home in a clear, concise manner. Our home ended up selling for over asking, in less than 48 hours! My wife and I would highly recommend Greg to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a property in the Ottawa region! You will not be disappointed! From a customer service perspective, we cannot stress how happy we were with this experience!
Brad - Seller & Buyer
Chelsea helped us sold our condo in 5 days. She is professional, she knows her business and responds quickly to questions or concerns. The video she makes to present the home is above expectations. Thank you Chelsea and long life in your career. 
- Elaine et Luc
It was a remarkable experience working with Karen. She was available to answer questions or concerns and booked showings on a very short notice. She is professional, very good at communication, understood my requirements and worked accordingly. I will for sure be recommending her to my friends and family!!!
The Hamre Team is the most knowledgeable, professional Real Estate team in Ottawa. They really made the whole process simple. They addressed all of our concerns in a timely and efficient manner. They arrange the staging, met with us to discuss a marketing strategy and really made us feel safe and in good hands! Their use of new technologies really sets them apart from the others in the area. I would strongly recommend everyone use this team if you are even considering selling or buying a home in the Ottawa market.
Steve really does know Ottawa!
Rob & Karen - Sellers
She was nice, knowledgeable about the area and things to look for in the specific types of listings we viewed. Also very accommodating! 5-star all the way. 
Greydon - Buyer
Steve and his team were indispensable in the sale of our home. This was our first time selling and the attention to detail from Steve and his staging team were critical in the quick sale and fantastic closing price!
Brendan + Jessica - Sellers
What can I say more, The fact that Greg is so knowledgeable about the business side of the process when buying, selling and renting, it makes the transaction seamless. Greg knows every region of Greater Ottawa area and was able to guide me and provide insight on my next home. What I love the most about Greg is his friendly stressless approach even when things get complicated needing to consider many factors to make the best decision for you. Also, Greg is extremely well connected and can provide professional references to all services required when moving. 
Jean D. - Seller/Buyer
Chelsea was a pleasure to work with! She made our first-time home buying process so seamless and easy. Chelsea always made sure to explain everything to us in a comprehendible way which made the process a lot less daunting. Chelsea definitely knows Ottawa which really helped us narrow down our search and find the perfect home! We would definitely work with Chelsea again!
Ben & Lindsay
"We Know Ottawa" is a perfect advertisement for the Hamre Real Estate Team. Steve was outstanding from the first time we spoke with him, up until the time he sold our home and he even helped us find a new property!! Steve was very professional, knowledgeable, and eager to help. If you are looking for a real estate agent, look no further than Steve Hamre!!!!
Randy & Lorraine
I'm so thankful to of crossed paths with Chelsea! I expected it to take a while to list my home, but she was so quick in every aspect! My house was staged, photographed and listed within a matter of days. The best part? There was then a SOLD sign, again, only a few days later. Chelsea was extremely professional and supportive during the entire process, as selling a home can be quite emotional! I really appreciated the fact that Chelsea included a stager before the photographer came in and the fact that she (Chelsea) showed up every day on social media platforms until my home was sold. Chelsea was constantly sharing my home and every time I turned to an app, I would see some type of sponsored ad or video she created herself. I have sold a few houses before and I've never had an agent provide me with the apps Chelsea did! I was given a Showings app that allowed me to easily confirm showing times, read feedback from those coming through and more. Though my home is now sold, Chelsea is still in contact with me to set up movers, change addresses, etc! All of this is done with her online platform, very user-friendly. It's no secret that the market in 2021 is next level insanity so having a knowledgeable agent with an actual game plan was a huge advantage! Knowing the market is crazy, and that my house would sell, I was actually considering selling it without an agent. However, I'm beyond grateful to of hired Chelsea as she brought in HUNDREDS of thousands of dollars more than I would've been able to achieve on my own as I was going to undervalue my property on listing price, simply because I wasn't educated about the current comps. Thank you Chelsea for all of your hard work, patience and understanding during this pivotal time in my life, my son and I are very excited for our next chapter!
Chelsea Mason - Seller
I was impressed with Karen from our first introduction right through to the purchase of my new home. She is very responsive, knowledgeable and a real pleasure to work with. Karen is very organized and helped us to view many homes in a short time. I was able to find and purchase a home I love in 5 days! I would highly recommend Karen for your real estate needs.
Sue - Buyer
As first-time home buyer I could not have asked for someone better than Chelsea. She was always available to us and would answer all are question at all times of the day (Very quick to reply as well). Chelsea is not just great at her job but is an awesome person! She made our search easy and was able to find something we loved in this crazy market. We highly recommend her !

Martin, Bianca et Louca - Buyers
Greg help to make selling a home a pleasant and efficient process. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to other buyers or sellers. He has an excellent understanding of the local market values.
Scott - Seller
Greg Hamre has sold our homes (x4) over the past decade or so. Always for top dollar and in relatively short order. He is very professional and quite knowledgeable about the housing market and its trends. I trust him fully and highly recommend the Hamre Team! Greg is always very available and most helpful. He is not just the best "agent" out there he has become a trusted friend!
Stephan - Buyer & Seller
We have had the pleasure of working with Greg as both a seller and twice as a buyer. Throughout each process, we were truly made to believe that we were the focus and that Greg was working for us to get us the best deal in all transactions. Greg's thorough knowledge of the Orleans market made the experiences painless and simple and helped us get the best price on our sale! Greg took us to a new area where he knew we would be happy for the foreseeable future - and we re delighted with our purchase. Professional, personable and knowledgeable - simply a few words that describe Greg Hamre. Thank you for helping us in our journeys.
Stephen - Buyer & Seller
We were about to list our house for sale in Orleans when a good friends of ours recommended Greg Hamre to us as they were very satisfied with their recent home purchase using him. We used Grg to list our home and also for the purchase of our new home. Both transactions went smoothly and we were completely satisfied with the Hamre Team. If Greg wasn't available he always ensured that Steve would deal with any questions or issues we had. We eventaully sold that house and purchased another using the Hamre Team. Again both transactions were seamless. Gregs knowledge of the area and market saw us sell for the highest price to that date in that subdivision. Several neighbors commented on our selling price as they hadn't realized that homes in the neighbourhood has appreciated that much. Three years later we were transferred to the Vancouver area and sold our house in Orleans through Greg. We still have occasional correspondence with him as we have developed a great working relationship over the years. In the Fall of 2018 an employee of mine was tranferring to the Ottawa area. He and his wife were corresponding with a realtor there and they were not satisfied with the service they were receiving. He knew that I had lived in the Ottawa area and wondered if I could recommend a good realtor. I advised him that we had used Greg Hamre a couple of times and that we were very satisfied with the results. My employee used the Hamre Team and was also pleased with the service that they received and sent me a thank-you message advising the same. I would have no problem recommending the Hamre Team to any friends, family or colleagues as they were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable of the markets in the Ottawa area.
Terry - Buyer & Seller
I have had the pleasure of working with Greg for both a sale and a purchase of homes over the past few years. For both experiences, he demonstrated exceptional expertise. For the sale, I had an asking price offer before the house went on the market. For my purchase, even though I had limited time to search and purchase, Greg found exactly the house I was looking for in short order and assisted me in negotiating a fair price. It is clear to me that he has a vast knowledge of the real estate market in the Ottawa area. Additionally, he was always available to respond to my questions and provided me with accurate assessments which greatly assisted me in my decisions. I have been extremely satisfied during my experiences. Without hesitation, I would recommend Greg and the entire Hamre team
Pete - Buyer & Seller
Greg Hamre has helped me purchase 2 houses while I am living in Shanghai. He was always available to help me out whenever I needed. He is very knowledgeable about the Ottawa area and he never pushed me to purchase a house unless I was completely comfortable with it. Greg is extremely professional and I would not hesitate to recommend him as a real estate agent
Kirk - Buyer
Greg was great very patient in showing us Numerous houses until we found the right One and the purchase went very smooth As did the sale. Very professional and Friendly and would not hesitate to Recommend him to our family or friends.
Larry - Buyer & Seller
We are a military family so we move a lot. Our experience with Greg Hamre was by far our best experience ever with a realtor acting for me as vendor. Greg’s attention to detail knowledge of the local market and strategic advice were excellent. He referred us to an excellent stager who helped us prepare our home to show and his photographer aptly captured our home inside and out permitting us to show it in its best light. The Hamre’s online presentation of our home was impressive and effective, allowing us to receive multiple offers in a very short period of time. Greg’s effort generated an excellent result, as were able to conclude a purchase and sale at asking price five days after the house was listed - an excellent result thanks to the work of the amazing people at team Hamre
Martin - Seller
Steve was my agent on multiple houses and it was evident he was concerned with what was best for my family of 4 and got us into our dream home while making the transition as effortless as possible. Thank you Steve and the Remax team.
Chris - Buyer & Seller
Greg and Steve were true professionals assisting us with selling and buying our houses in 2014. They were there for us every step of the process both before and after the closings. Their experience and expertise cannot be duplicated!
Sabrina - Buyer & Seller
Greg and Steve were true professionals assisting us with selling and buying our houses in 2014. They were there for us every step of the process both before and after the closings. Their experience and expertise cannot be duplicated!
Karen & Robin - Buyer & Seller
Greg Hamre was a lifesaver!!! My home had been listed with a different agent with no luck for nearly 8 months. I was going through a divorce and keeping the home was adding stress. Greg stepped in and did an amazing job!!!! He not only helped me make difficult choices, but he guided me through it all and took all the stress off my plate!!! I totally trusted him to have my best interests always and he definitely went above and beyond to get this done in a timely manner and for a good price!!! He is extremely professional, very honest about your property, excellent and efficient at communicating and even added the personal touch of letting me cry about it all over a coffee meeting!!! I really thank Greg for helping me get through selling that home and will definitely use him again if the time comes to sell again!!! I would highly recommend him (and his company-they were all so helpful) as a buyer or seller agent as he really puts the customers needs first!!!!
Melissa - Buyer & Seller
Greg is so professional, very attentive and responsive to any questions or concerns, and negotiated well on our behalf to ensure our house sold. He is an honest and hardworking gentleman who can be trusted to work with your best interests in mind. He also has a great support and office team.
Sharon - Buyer
The difference between Greg Hamre and other agents is they sell you a house and Greg will help you purchase the best home for you. House hunting with Greg includes information about the neighbourhood and stopping to experience local cuisine. Greg is always honest and upfront about what to expect and what is achievable when buying or selling. He is very responsive to his clients needs during and after the purchase or sale. He is a very polite and customer satisfaction oriented agent. Greg has helped us buy four homes and sell two homes which resulted in us being very satisfied with each experience. We have lived in many places in Canada including Halifax, Nova Scotia and Victoria, British Columbia and we have never had an agent that came close to the level of outstanding service provided by Greg. We have recommended him to many friends over the last 19 years and all have thanked us for the recommendation.
Kristina - Buyer & Seller
I could not be happier with Greg’s services and I am incredibly glad I chose to use his team. It was easy. I always felt like the sell of my house was a priority. He provided me with the comfort I needed in an otherwise stressful transaction. Everyone that visited the house or was interested was contacted directly by Greg who then provided me with feedback that made me feel that he was always engaged and eager to see the transaction through. He answered all my email and called me personal to discuss options every time we had feedback. I had an offer in 48 hours and closed in 30 days. His enthusiasm to sell my house allowed me to focus on other things and relax because I felt that the listing was in good hands and he will do what needs to be done every step of the way. I would never use another team and highly recommend him.
Mira - Sold
We have used Greg for our real estate needs on more than one occasion. He has always been professional and knowledgeable and extremely helpful! He walked us through the purchase of our first house and has been patient with us as we have considered (multiple times)moving from a home and neighbourhood we love to something a little bigger and possibly more appropriate for the next stage of our lives. I would recommend the Hamre team to anyone.
Liz - Buyer & Seller
Very knowledgeable about the area. Made the process stress free. I wasn't expecting to enjoy the home search/buying process but I was proven wrong in a very good way
Nicole - Buyer
We have had Greg Hamre as our agent 5 times and will again as the service level provided is absolutely the best. We have recommended him to many of our friends and they too are impressed by his knowledge and dedication. Prior to moving he provides up to date listings, informs you on market trends and ensures that the type of home you are looking for is what he is preparing for. On arrival he spends time with you to confirm what you are looking for and your areas of interest to live. After the sale Greg always comes by to see if you have any questions and if there is anything further you need. Due to moving frequently for work reasons, Greg is always prepared for our return and the relationship we have with him is easy, as he takes the time to get to know his clients there is no time wasted looking at homes that do not meet our needs and our within price range. You can never go wrong working with the Hamre team!
Angie - Buyer & Seller
Greg was very helpful when we were looking for a new home and ready to sell our house as well. Very polite, helpful and knowledgeable in the market trends and neighborhoods we were looking at.
Marshall - Buyer & Seller
In selecting a Realtor, for the sale of a Parents house, we selected 3 Realtors to interview.Greg Hamre provided the most professional approach, and provided a level of personal comfort to help us through a difficult transition for our aging parent.He provided a realistic assessment of both the real-estate potential of the neighbourhood in general, and the prospects for this house, which had not undergone upgrades. He identified those elements which would provide a positive return on investment, and cautioned against those that would simply result in unnecessary expenditures.Greg recommended a sales approach, advised on how to best present the house, and provided an apppropriate pricing and marketing strategy. The House sold within the agreed sales price and time.We used him again to assist with the sale of a property for a friend of ours.
Gwen & Laura - Seller
My husband and have had great experiences selling and buying with both Greg & Steve Hamre. They are there for any concerns, they answer all your questions, very patient as it took us awhile to find the perfect home and the most pleasant realtors you will ever meet. I would definitely recommend the Hamres if you are looking to sell your home :-)
Natalie & Denis - Buyer & Seller
I have been working with Greg for 18+ years and have found him to be extremely reliable, honest and knowledgeable not to mention that he is just a fun loving person who can brighten anyone's day. Whether listing or selling, he draws from his vast client list to find the perfect fit for his clients lifestyle and needs and gets them into their new place to call home. I would not hesitate to refer friends and family to Greg and his team ..... as a matter of fact, I already have on several occasions and he has never let me down. If you want peace of mind when buying or selling your home, The Hamre Team is exactly what you are looking for.
Sharon - Buyer & Seller
We had heard through friends and acquaintances that Greg was an excellent agent. Greg went above and beyond to find the perfect home for us. He understood our needs and delivered. Greg also sold our house. Greg’s team made sure that our house was properly staged, we had many visits, one every second or third day. The house didn’t take long to sell. Afterwards Greg’s team always kept us informed of the next steps, referred us to a real estate lawyer . The transition was smooth. We cannot say enough about Greg and his team, if we ever move again you can be sure that we will be calling the Hamre team.
Kim - Buyer & Seller
Greg and his team at Hamre Real Estate were wonderful during the sale of 2 homes for us. Their knowledge of the market led to our home being priced right and this quick sales.
Lucky - Buyer & Seller
Having dealt with the Hamre on over half a dozen deals, we would highly recommend. The knowledge, passion and preparedness that they bring to every deal is invaluable. They are always well informed, educated and prepared for every meeting and showing. We believe that Greg and Steve truly get a kick out of, and thrive on seeing their clients so happy and satisfied. You will not be disappointed with these agents.
Shawn - Buyer & Seller
Steve was very easy to work with and offered lots of positive and helpful advice as to preparing our property for sale. He also found lots of properties for us to view and ultimately found us our current family home, it was exactly what we were looking for.
Scott - Buyer
I'm happy to have the opportunity to express my thoughts regarding the Hamre team and particularly Greg Hamre. Greg has managed a few real estate transactions for me. I keep coming back because the service is consistent and outstanding. I truly see the value in the service that's provided. I find Greg goes the extra mile to understand the market, his client's objectives and expected outcomes. I recently downsized with Greg's assistance through every step of the process. His recommendations, attention to detail,negotiation skills and contacts made the transition as smooth as possible. I highly recommend the Hamre team.
Mark - Buyer & Seller
Greg was SO helpful. His team really does Know Ottawa! Because he lives in the Cumberland area, his network of contractors was quite vast. Amazing. He know everyone. As a result, this saved us +++time when it came for the inspection and completing repairs on our current home for staging. Furthermore, his knowledge and passion for the area really came out in such a genuine manner. A very positive individual. I highly recommend Greg's and his team to any seller or buyer
Leigh - Buyer
Greg talked to me for a while, got to know my interests, concerns and what I valued in a property. I’m still extremely happy with my decision to purchase a property in what I consider to be the best part of town, and am quite sure I’ll turn a profit when I go to sell down the road. Outstanding performance by Greg.
Travis - Buyer
We hired Steve Hamre to help us sell our house in Orleans - he is very knowledgeable about this area of the city and was the best choice for realtor for us. Although it took longer than we expected to sell, Steve was always there to answer questions and address concerns. We also hired him to help us buy our next house. We had a specific budget and wanted to live in a very popular neighborhood. He gave us great advice when we ended up in a bidding war with 2 of the houses we had put offers on. In the end we ended up exactly where we wanted to be, within our budget (thanks Steve!). I would describe him as a confident, knowledgeable agent who remains calm and collected in all situations. I highly recommend him!
Wendy - Buyer & Seller
We used Steve on several occasions, to sell three properties and buy one.Steve was very informed and pleasant to deal with. Our calls were answered in a timely fashion, after everything was said and done he was available to answer additional questions and provide us with names of other professionals to deal with.We would not hesitate to use Steve in the future should the need arise.
Ray & Wendy - Buyer & Seller
Greg was confident and professional, clear detailed explanation. Was very knowledgeable of the market trends, excellent marketing skills with his video to promote the house. Great service would highly recommend to anyone buying or selling their home.

No question about it, we would definitely use the Hamre Real Estate Team if the need arrises again. The sale of our house in Ottawa was so easy. We sold very quickly and the sale price was higher than we expected. I’ve already told friends and family about the Hamre Real Estate Team at RE/MAX Affiliates and the level of service that we received since day 1. Greg Hamre was always there for us and took the time to implement the perfect plan and strategy. The staging and the assistance to organize for the professional pictures and narrative video was so helpful. The entire team should be commend and please keep doing what you are doing. Don’t change a thing.
Sue & Terry - Seller
We had a terrific experience buying and selling with the Hamre Real Estate Team. There is nothing more they could have done for us. We really appreciated that they are quick to respond to our phone calls, text messages or emails. We sold very quickly and then bought much faster than expected. Greg Hamre understood exactly what type of condo would work for us. We found Greg to be caring and not at all pushy. Very professional with a wealth of knowledge on real estate and great advice on where to buy in Ottawa. The entire team makes you feel like you are their only clients. We are so happy with our new style of living. 
Linda & Henri - Buyer & Seller
Steve Hamre did a great job at marketing our home. He was attentive and thoughtful concerning our needs and concerns. We were very happy with the pictures including the drone pictures. Beautifully done. The staging was a worthwhile touch. We both think the service was really well thought out and really there is nothing we would add. My husband and I are very happy with the service we received.

Mavis & Geoff - Buyer
We have bought and/or sold 8 times during out lifetime in four different cities and have never/never experienced such professionalism, competence, and support from other realtors. We have retained the services of Greg and his Team 4 times and have never been disappointed. The entire Hamre Team deserves to be commended. "Keep doing what your doing." They are excellent at being available, approachable, accommodating, friendly, providing real time information, managing and supporting client’s anxiety and expectations, especially being one step ahead of the game with respect to the other parties responsibilities. 
Denis & Darlene - Buyer & Seller
Everything was so professionally done in a very timely and friendly manner and compassion for our acute medical situation. Greg pushed me when I was exhausted to secure our new home and I am so grateful for his foresight. He attended all my meetings with the new home builder. His expertise is so evident! The team was in touch with us constantly and then set us up with a moving concierge! Does’t get better than this!
Mary-Ellen & Peter - Buyer & Seller
Just wanted to say thank you for everything you and your team have done for us. Very professional and personal makes for a winning combination.  Who knows we may be back in a few years as we loved living here and if we are we will definitely be looking you up.

We contracted with Greg Hamre on two separate sales and in both cases he delivered as advertised. The sales and purchases were smooth and incident free. Very happy with the care and attention we were given.
Shane & Rosa - Buyer & Seller
Greg Hamre was wonderful to deal with in the purchase of my first home. Greg was very attentive to what I was hoping to get, and went above and beyond to find me a wonderful home in the neighbourhood I absolutely love. I appreciated his guidance, expertise and knowledge that he shared every step of the way.  I couldn't be happier with the experience of purchasing my new home. Thanks, Greg!
Jen - Buyer
Working with Greg Hamre has been a charm.  Here is an agent that truly works with his clients to fully understand their needs before viewing houses and then adjusts himself to further refine home viewings during the first few visits.  A true professional where client satisfaction is number one on his priority list, Greg Hamre goes well beyond showing used homes and will, if required, show new homes in newly developed areas to ensure nothing has been left out as a potential option during a House Hunting Trip. The Services you receive with Greg Hamre are outstanding and proceed well after the purchase agreement. Our Experience with Greg Hamre and the Hamre Real Estate Team is such that we would highly recommend him and his team to others who want a pleasant house hunting trip experience with reduced stress levels.  Thank you Greg
Steeve & Darlene - Buyer
Greg Hamre of the Hamre Remax Team is a superb real estate agent. This is the second time we have bought a home with Greg, and the first time we have gone through the selling process. Greg listened to and advised us on our 'must-have' list, and was ready and willing to show us numerous properties that met our projected needs. His extensive knowledge of the Orleans area helped guide us to appropriate neighbourhoods and builders. In the end, his diligent work found us a home that absolutely fit our requirements list.

Selling our home through Greg was as stress-free as such an endeavor could be. He made himself available on numerous occasions to walk through our home and provide advice on renovation ideas that would see the greatest return for our investment. He shared his network of contacts with us, allowing us to complete multiple renovations in a short time span. Most importantly, when it came time to list our property Greg came over with five years’ worth of comparables, and we used this to guide us in pricing our home. This approach proved to be successful as we were able to close on the sale almost immediately after listing. We would absolutely and without hesitation recommend Greg and the Hamre team to anyone looking for a real estate agent in Ottawa.

Greg thank you so much for your support and patience in helping ‎us find our new home and selling our home for a price that we were thrilled with. Your level of customer service has been top notch - your experience and knowledge were invaluable. 
Duane & Kristen - Buyer & Seller
Due to a personal health situation, my wife and I needed to sell our home and thanks to Greg and Team Hamre, we accomplished this in a short period of time.Throughout the process Greg understood, and was compassionate about our situation. His guidance and recommendations, along with the assistance of a great stager, made our selling experience one with minimal stress. The communication channels were wide open and we were kept up to date throughout the whole process.We would like to extend our sincere appreciation to Greg and we HIGHLY recommend others to first consider Team Hamre if you need to buy or sell.
Gord & Sherry - Seller
We just sold our fourth home through Greg and his team. We keep going back to Greg because we appreciate his advice, all the services and exposure he provides, and the fast turnaround on the sales. With our most recent sale, Greg took the time to meet with us a few times in the months leading up and was helpful in identifying what we should focus on to get the house show-ready. It worked and we had many visits in a short time and an offer within ten days on the market! He also included the services of a stager this time and she made such a difference to the flow of rooms. The photos and video they produce to market the house are high quality and promote the best features giving it great exposure. Selling a house can be a stressful experience but Greg and team make it less so by all of their support and helpful services.
We highly recommend the Hamre team to family and friends.
Christine & Patrick - Seller
Without your help we would not have been able to find such a beautiful home that fit our wish list of requirements.

Hugo & Denise - Seller
A huge thank you to Steve Hamre and the Hamre Real Estate Team for making our home selling experience remarkably easy. The professionalism and resourcefulness demonstrated by Steve provided us with an immediate sense of confidence that was unmet by any other sales team we'd previously considered. Our home sold in three days for higher than our listed price! When it comes to realty, it pays to know a ninja in a blazer (in Steve's case, it's usually a suit!)
C & J - Seller
Simply greatful for people like you. You made the selling of our home a seamless and efficient process. We truly appreciated the dedication and top-notch professionalism put forth by the Hamre Real Estate Team. Many thanks and keep up the excellent work.
Adamaley Family - Seller
When my Sister called me to express interest in a house on our old street. She then asked for advice on how to proceed as a next step and I told her to get a realtor. She asked me who and the Hamre Team immediately came to mind. Having gotten to know you over the years and seeing how professional you are, I felt very confident in referring her to you knowing she'd get great service. Greg, you your Team came through on both the purchase of her new place and the selling of her old one, what a feat! Thanks for serving her so well and rest assured I will refer others your way in the future should the opportunity arise. 
Vinette - Buyer
Just wanted to send you a quick thank you for selling our house. We don't think it would of went so fast without your tenacity to get it sold. We thank you for advising us to list it at the right price and therefore bringing us two potential buyers. With our busy work schedules it was nice to have a professional we had confidence in which released most of our stresses in the process. Your extra help in getting the conditions all met was greatly appreciated as well.
Joanne & Allan - Buyer & Seller
My wife and I would like to express our sincere gratitude to the Hamre Team for finding us our dream home. We engaged Steve Hamre early in 2011 to find our family a home on a quiet street for our two children to play without worries, a good size lot, ravine if possible and with 4 bedrooms. We are happy to say that they found us everything we looking for and well within our budget. We were very pleased with the professionalism and attention to detail from both Steve Hamre and Shirley Hamre. As this was such a positive experience, I have recommended the Hamre Team to many of my friends and they have all been very successful in finding the right home for their families. Both Julie and I would like to personally thank Steve and Shirley for their hard work and dedication to our family and enabling us to find our dream home. Thank you Hamre team!!!
Mark & Julie - Buyer
We were very fortunate to have found our dream home with such ease, in no small part due to the efforts of Steve and his staff... Moving into the Springridge community has truly been a wonderful experience for our entire family, and it became quickly evident why this area is so sought after! Thanks again to the entire Hamre team!
Dr & Mrs M - Buyer
Thank You to the Hamre Team for going above and beyond in helping my family find a new home. Steve was involved more than is normal in all of the little things, (from financing, inspecting the home, sharing your wisdom etc). I am pleased that I recommended your team to help out my neice & nephew and knew from my own personal experience that the Hamre's would make sure they were taken care of. Look forward to dealing with the Hamre Team in the future and will continue to recommend your team.
Stacey - Buyer
After a frustrating experience with another real estate company, Greg quickly understood our relocation circumstances and needs. He was able to find just what we needed and understood our comfort requirements. Being totally new to the area, it was helpful to have a reliable source of good contacts for legal and renovations purposes. Sean Cassidy installed a 3 season sunroom on the back. We are really excited about our new home and the community. Thanks to the Hamre Team at RE/MAX. You work well together. We feel very comfortable in recommend you to our friends and family. 
H & R McMillian - Buyer

Cynthia - Seller
I found the entire Hamre Team to be compassionate and they listened to my concerns. Greg was very challenging and made sure my house was given the top priority in showing it as much as possible. He showed dedication, is driven to work and he loves his job. Was a pleasure working with Greg and the Hamre Team. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend them!
Pauline - Buyer & Seller
We met a lot of real estate agents in the search for our next home. When we met Greg Hamre both my husband and I felt a relaxed level of comfort and assurance that we had found the agent that we wanted to work with. The Hamre Team’s approach was different, more professional and they listened to us. It was simply about us and our lifestyle need. These guys get it. They reacted quickly to our every request and followed through with every detail. Thank you so much for everything the Hamre team has done for us. It was a pleasure working with you. A special thanks to Karen as well. We will certainly recommend Greg and the Hamre team to our friends and colleges.

It has been an amazing experience again for us.
Julie & Dan - Seller
"We were fortunate to deal with the founder of the Hamre Team -Shirley Hamre- in 1987 when we relocated to Ottawa from Winnipeg. After raising a family and an enjoyable twenty four years living in Convent Glen, we decided to simply our lifestyle. Sue and I knew who to contact when we decided to downsize and relocate-the Hamre Team. Throughout the listing period Greg Hamre displayed professionalism, energy and passion. His ability to utilize innovative marketing techniques which aided in promoting our property to a vaste interactive community. We will not hestitate to recommend the Hamre Team to individuals in Southwestern Ontario who look to move to the National Capital. In conclusion, our sincere appreciation and thanks to Greg Hamre and the Hamre Team (including the Founder!) for making this emotional and stressful time a rewarding experience! The loop has come full cirlcle and is now closed.
S & C Forsythe - Buyer & Seller
Greg is a fantastic listener. He knew the situation of the sale and was on my side. I never felt “rushed” or “pressured” to make a decision on the spot. I would highly recommend the Hamre Team a 1000% to anyone buying or selling! Everything went smoothly and in a professional and friendly way. Thanks to Karen too, our client care representative – She was of great support and communicated very well with our every request.
D & A Ellis - Seller
Thank you Greg and the Hamre Team. We appreciated your efforts and knowledge of the area. Your knowledge of real estate, Ottawa and contacts (broker, inspector and potential trades people) makes your business a "one stop shop" and a valuable asset to us and in the field. You're also very personable and customer oriented which makes you easy to work with and ensured we bought the house that was right for our family. Thank you so much! We will be sure to refer you to our friends, family and colleagues in the future. 
Alice & Bruce - Buyer
Just a few words Greg to let you know that dealing with you and your team was a real pleasure. It's not often you meet a realtor who has his client's best interest at heart. From the moment you walked in - to the moment the sale was finalized your professionalism was flawless! We greatly appreciate the role you played in selling our property on its first day of showings! Awesome! We are proud to have your SOLD sign on our property and hope many more listings will come your way because of it. Thanks a million!
C & F Allard - Seller
Thanks Greg and the Hamre Team for being so patient with us...great work, we had total confidence in you for finding the perfect home for us...Our dogs will enjoy this immensely & of course us !!!
Larry & Sabrina - Buyer & Seller
It is incredible what a few changes and a bit of tweaking can do to a room and more importantly our home......With the non related disaster we lived through last summer, my husband and I just wanted to sell our home with the snap of a finger.....but now after listening to your marketing approach and with the assistance of your Accredited Home Staging Team, we understand the big picture and see a huge difference of opportunity. We are now excited and proud to be showing our home. Your Team was quick to start the process and within a few non stressful days our home has taken a new shape at no extra cost to us. Staging the home really has made a difference! Thank you so much for "opening" our eyes.
R & G Normaoyle - Buyer & Seller
I have met a number of sales people throughout my career but I have to say Greg and the Hamre Team are the MOST client-focused sales people that I have ever met, a pleasure to work with.
B & J McLean - Buyer & Seller
Thank you Steve for all your help with buying and selling our house. You have made this process easy and stress free, you reassured us with your knowledge and constant availability. We will definitely use your services in the future and recommend you to people we know. 
L and P Archambault - Buyer & Seller
Selling one's home ha s great emotional, as well as, financial significance. I chose Greg Hamre as my agent because of his passion for his profession, his deep knowledge of the market, his innovative use of the internet and video, and most of all because he would be personally involved. It was a very smart decision on my part. Greg and his team provided me truly excellent service.
P Fenton - Seller
Steve was very helpful, knowledgable and patient, I was beyond nervous about buying a house. In the end Steve put things into prespective for me and made me feel less anxious. Thanks so much.
M Seaver - Buyer
I just wanted to say thank you for both the 67’s tickets and the Christmas wreath. The wreath was especially appreciated. You probably do not remember but when I moved in here Dec 2004, you had put a wreath like that on my kitchen counter so when I arrived it was there waiting for me. It was a very difficult time for me and Nathan my son and that wreath just said welcome when I needed it. I refer all my Friends and Family to the Hamre Team.
Sarah - Buyer & Seller
Passionate & Understanding....thank you for everything. The Hamre Team made our hectic & stressful experience a great one. No pressure - pleasan and courteous at all times. Never met a real estate agent so curtious and efficient. We got the price we wanted and Greg was there at all times when we called him. I have recommended the Hamre Team to several people.
S & J Thompson - Buyer & Seller
Very efficient and professional. We loved the taped clip on the property as part of the HAMRE website. The team was very professional for all administrative matters, showings and final sale paperwork. The Hamre team made our house selling a wonderful experience.
M Villeneuve - Buyer & Seller
The Hamre Team was terrific, very knowledgable, professional and so friendly. They offered all kinds of professional advice. They went beyond, working late into the evening to make sure we acquired the property. They exceeded our expections. We love our new home. Thanks so much.
N & H Finlay - Buyer
Greg Hamre and the Entire Hamre Team handled the Sale of our home with the utmost professionalism. The Hamre Team is a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend them to others Buying and Selling as well as relocating to the Ottawa Area.
S & J.P Bernais - Buyer & Seller
As Tina Turner would exclaim, "(You're) simply the best!"
M & E Clark - Buyer & Seller
As a relocate to Ottawa, I had no specific knowledge of the city. You took the time to truly understand the criteria to apply to our search for a new home and although the criteria were not easy to match, you helped us find a great home within 3 weeks of my arrival date. You provided sound and honest advice and were completely responsive to our queries. Although I undertook this relocate for a great job opportunity, the relocate for my husband was particularly stressful. We have very quickly come to love this city as it has an endless amount of fabulous activities to participate in. Our main challenge is fitting everything in from festivals to biking on the wonderful Ottawa River path to hiking trails to fine dining, etc., etc., etc.. I understand that there are amazing golf courses and we have yet to find time to get to them. We love it here and are very grateful for your support in welcoming us and finding us a wonderful home. One further thing – for relocates you provide incredible support in recommending all of the other necessary support services needed when purchasing home. The Mortgage Specialist and the Law Firm that you recommended really came through for us. Thanks so much for attending to all of the details – it made the entire experience much less intimidating.
S & J Reiber - Buyer
We just wanted to express to you how great it was to have you as our agent and how much of an advantage it was to have you and your team in our corner. Your knowledge of the Ottawa area and your instincts are just remarkable! You were relentless in your search to find us ‘our home’. And your keen eye and experience was instrumental in helping us avoid paying TENS of thousands more than we had to. We were equally impressed when it came time to sell our property. Your hard work and extensive network made sure that our listing was viewed by as many people as possible and generated offers within the first 24 hours! We are still blown away by the final selling price – a full 15% over any unit that has ever sold in our building! Through it all, you made sure that our needs were put above everything else. We’re so glad we had the _Team HAMRE Advantage_ on our side!
Huge & Cheryl - Buyer & Seller
Your expertise in the housing market is so impressive and accurate. It will be my pleasure to recommend you to my friends whenever I have a chance. Thank you very much for helping us. We appreciated all your time, energy and knowledge.
M Cheng - Seller
The Hamre Team was recommended to us from the RE/MAX realtor selling our home in Victoria, and from the outset he provided top-notch professional and motivated service. The Hamre's quickly found us a beautiful home with everything on our wish list and more. Their wealth of knowledge of Ottawa and the housing market is exceptionally helpful. In fact, their contacts with other service professionals continues to help us as we furnish our new home. You won’t be disappointed when you call the Hamre Team!
Phil & Rhonda - Buyer
John and I just wanted to send the Hamre Team a big thank you for all you did for us during the selling process of our home. As I mentioned last week, we have bought and sold about 6 homes during our married life together. Consistently they have been bad experiences, due in large part to realtors who didn't know the market, didn't understand our needs and, to be blunt, were in it for the money. We wanted to thank you for being so different than the rest of them!Your team was professional and you know this market better than anybody we could have imagined. We constantly felt that you were in our corner, doing your best for us always. We really appreciated the fact that you always followed up with us after showings, gave us feedback and always offered encouragement. Selling a house with four small children is not easy, but you took away a lot of the anxiety and made this a very pleasant experience. If we could, we would buy and sell every house with you! Thanks again, you were incredible!
John & Nikki - Buyer & Seller
Your professionalism and expertise has made our home buying experience wonderful. You truly surpassed our expectations! We were concerned that our tight time-lines for buying would not facilitate finding a home. However, with your help we found and purchased our home with 36 hours! We will recommend you to all our friends. Thanks again!
Warren & Debbie - Buyer
We would recommend the Hamre Team to anyone looking to purchase a new home or investment property. They always go that extra mile for their clients. Their experience in the Ottawa market is second to none. They always has that great "bit" of advice to ensure you get the house you want at the right price.
Tanya & Mark - Buyer
We'd recommend the Hamre Team very highly for your friends and family whom ever needs to buy a house or want a sell a house. They are the best out there with no doubt. A specially for Military postings, as you know we've got no time to waste.
H & A Coben - Buyer
The Hamre Team explained the various tools that they would use to market our property which made us quite confident that our house would sell very quickly. A simple Google Search of our address immediately came back with many different websites with the details of our house displayed. We had a conditional sale within 72 hours of listing our house with the Hamre Team. Our Neighbour's listed their home for sale two days before us and for less money. It is still for sale.
Jason & Julie - Seller
My wife arranged to purchase 690 Mathieu Way this week and the extra information you provided about this listing through YouTube and other sources made it easier for me to participate in the decision to offer on the property from my remote perch in Nova Scotia. I love to see intelligent innovation in real estate. Creative agents like those on your team are making the whole experience of buying a house less stressful, more informative and more interesting.
Will & Rose - Buyer
I was at the Remax & You conference in Missisauga in February 2010 and listened to you speak on the panel. Of all the panelists from Trading Secrets, your team really stood out. I would really like to follow your lead in respect to how I practice real estate going forward. I just wanted thank you for your insight. I really enjoyed your passion for the business.
Nick M - Realtor
Thanks so much for speaking at the seminar in Calgary this March. I definitely look at things differently now that I’ve heard from you and the other guys! I really enjoyed the technology aspect of your presentation and how your team drives business through your web site to your listings. Your teams exposure is awesome.
Harry - Realtor
I just wanted to thank you for coming all the way to Calgary to speak at Ken Eddy’s "Mastermind Style" seminar. It was a thrill to hear someone so enthusiastic about their business. It shows that you can love what you do and do it well. I’ve come back to Edmonton excited about technology and not as scared. Thanks for sharing your great marketing ideas.
Christine - Realtor
TURNING SOMETHING INTO THE MOST POSITIVE EXPERIENCE OF 2020! (and quite an experience it was!) We live in West Carleton and the family had a house in Orleans they started to consider selling away back in January 2020. We knew no real estate agents in Orleans. Greg Hamre and the WEKNOWOTTAWA.COM

Hamre Real Estate Team was actually found on the Internet earlier this year by a family member who lives in down in Maryland USA, with the help of his wife who has experience with U.S. Real Estate. They both did their due diligence from Maryland USA, on the Best Canadian/Ottawa Real Estate Agents and decided to forward their recommendation to us in Ottawa. It was Greg Hamre. Boy did he knock it out of the park. Top ten! Back in March, this house sale looked like an extreme challenge as it currently had tenants till July 1st and a Mortgage due June 1st. Plus COVID-19 was just happening.

One could have expected many an agent to simply say call me when you are ready. Greg was there all the way. Greg worked with us starting about March/April to help with advice in preparing the sale. As a result of Greg's knowledge of real estate and his experience, we were able to breeze through required situations including Timing ( COVID-19 had a big impact), Banking, complete Mortgage renewal June 1st, (saving us thousands), Property clean up planning, and so on. One-stop shop- Greg covered all our needs and requirements. We received such first-class service I was actually outright impressed that Real Estate Technology has advanced so far and in the right hands can be so incredibly beneficial to people buying or selling. It certainly was in the right hands.

When we finally listed the house in July, and I tried to follow the listing on the Internet and had a hard time keeping up. The house was all over the Internet. Even on YOUTUBE. Everybody was listing it. The house sold in 7 days, with multiple offers and a large physical showing. People in the know will know what a "Gretsky" is regarding showings... All while ensuring COVID safety rules were strictly adhered to all the way. We were extremely happy with the final far exceeding sale price, beyond our wildest expectations.

This to us is what excellent service can accomplish. We have never been so impressed by the level of service we received. I highly recommend you review Greg and his Team FIRST when you are looking for a Real Estate Agent. You won't be disappointed, you'll be extremely impressed! That's OUR opinion.
Chelsea helped me find my home for myself and my kids. She was always so helpful and informative with what our next steps should be during a sellers market. She helped us find out home and I would recommend Chelsea to all my friends and family!
Kim - Buyer
I believe it is very important to pick the right agent as buying or selling your house is a big deal. Karen is a good listener and very easy to get along with. Very prompt with getting back when I had a question.
I would highly recommend Karen for the job.
Gerry - Buyer
We just purchased our condo and we are extremely pleased with how easy the process was. As first time home buyers, the housing market can be very intimidating but Chelsea helped us out throughout the whole process without any worries. She was always professional, quick responding and considerate to our wants and needs. We loved working with her and highly recommend her to anyone!
Kelly - Buyer
Karen was great to work with. As a person without a car she helped me to get around and see not only the house but some of the areas around it to get a better feel. She was very helpful in the process of making offers as well.
Jenna - Buyer
Extremely kind, friendly, and efficient in meeting our goals. We got along with Chelsea immediately, and found she exceeded our expectations, even the ones we did not even know we had! Outstanding, in a word.
Mack - Buyer
This was our first time working with Steve as we had recently moved here from out of Province and it was a great experience. Steve was diligent and patient. We had a very specific taste and viewed at a lot of houses before we found the right one. He knew a lot about the different neighbourhoods and schools in the area. Steve did not pressure us in anyway, and always said “there will always be another house if this one does not check the boxes”. He worked with us until we found the right one. He was always available, and listened to our perspective on what we wanted in a home. He knew a lot about the real estate market and provided us with accurate information. His ability to suggest pricing and valuation was dead on and was right in all his recommendations. He was able to spot potential issues with a home and helped us make the right decision in purchasing our new home. He offered property evaluation and potential future value appreciation when we were faced with competing choices. He continued to assist us after the deal was signed, and even put together a post-purchase list to assist with the move. Thank you so much Steve for your support and assistance throughout this process. We appreciate your expertise and patience. We will definitely use Steve again on our next purchase and recommend him to others. 
Tee & V - Buyers
We appreciated Greg’s patience and knowledge as our family navigated through the purchase of an estate lot for the first time. This purchase was very important for our family for many different reasons and Greg quickly picked up on that. He was extremely responsive and made this important purchase an absolutely wonderful experience for our family.Mark Review
Yanik & Jessica - Buyers
On-Point! He’s the agent that I’m putting in the game to make the winning goal or shot! We trusted his approach and strategy. We enjoyed the whole process (the staging, personalized video of our house, showing requests and end result)! Greg is great at what he does. Superstar!
Annie & Martin - Sellers
Karen was attentive, and so in tune with our needs as first-time home buyers. She provided fantastic insight and knowledge, and ultimately found us our dream home!
Chelsea & Daniel - Buyers
Karen was very attentive and always there to answer my questions.She did her best to négociate the best price.She was punctual and polite.I would recommend her to my friends or anyone that want individual attention
Celine - Buyer

Amazing knowledge of the Orleans area, house was priced right, staging experience was excellent, pictures were professional, recommendations for repairs/pain were effective, communication was excellent and home sold within 6 days. Very satisfied!
Imraan - seller
Chelsea was always professional and courteous. She was quick to respond when I had concerns or questions. She always had a positive attitude and made the experience of buying my first home a great one!
Teshauna - buyer
I heard a commercial on CFRA and made a note of the phone number. I called and was connected to Greg Hamre. He was very attentive and took over the situation of selling my late cousin's house. I met him at the house, he evaluated the house and we came up with an estimated value. The house was listed and showed for one week. There were 10 viewings. The following Monday, the bids were accepted and we chose the winning bid. Working with Greg was very easy as an executor. I have never been through this before. He made everything simple for me and the house sold. I am very relieved. Greg was a great partner in this deal.
Chelsea Hamre was an amazing real estate agent. While looking for a house for my daughters, Chelsea was very helpful and knowledgeable. She took initiative to help find a neighbourhood that was safe to live in for two young girls. She kept regular contact with us and was very easy to get a hold of. We were very pleased with our experience with Chelsea and highly recommend her as an agent for someone who is new in the area.
David - Buyer
I was trying to purchase a home at the worst possible time (COVID-19) and Karen was patient and understanding of my needs and at the same time worked to understand me, my family, and my expectations. I definitely posed a challenge to her which she continually made me feel was not unusual and I found it easy to speak honestly with her. During the purchase, she gave me sound advice for and against the purchase that was valuable. My family is now anxious to move into our newly purchased home!
Cheryl - Buyer
Chelsea was amazing. She was quick to respond and was extremely helpful in finding a house. Even when I was in Toronto she would face time and tell me her opinion regardless of price. She spent time looking for places and made sure I got a good house in a good area. Thank you so much! You were absolutely wonderful, really made my first time home buying experience amazing! Will definitely contact in the near future and highly recommend
Dilesia - Buyer
Steve Hamre is a true real estate professional. Over the past few years, he has helped us to secure a condo and then our first family home when we were expecting the arrival of our first child. From the outset, it is was very clear that he possessed an uncommon level of market knowledge in the Ottawa area. This was subsequently demonstrated throughout the viewing process of homes where he provided knowledgeable and impartial advice. Finally what truly impressed us was his follow-through after the deal had closed as he made a deliberate effort to guide us through the process. Above all else, he is incredibly responsive and pleasant in his approach to customer service. I would strongly encourage anyone searching for a real estate agent to use Steve Hamre.
Mike - Buyer
Greg and the team did a great job for us during trying times. Constant communication and great results. They provided a lot of options for us and also helped us pick the right one.
Jane - Buyer
Chelsea was absolutely phenomenal to work with. She was very easy to get in touch with and always offered knowledgable advice and support. She went the extra mile to ensure I was fully satisfied with my purchase. As a first time home buyer, all my stress and concerns were alleviated through Chelsea's outstanding service and attention to detail. I will definitely be working with her again in the future!
Sydnie - Buyer
So I bought a house during COVID.... Where to begin? I had worked with Steve before when I bought my first property a few years ago and it was a great experience, so I didn't hesitate to call on him again for my next purchase. In fact, more than a year out, we met up with him to get the lay of the land again and to renew our communication and indeed, he started sending us info and options right away, patiently waiting more than a year before we indicated that we were ready to take action and start viewing properties. We started viewings in a tough market: low inventory and bidding wars. We could at least feel confident in the insights Steve was sharing. He helped us understand neighbourhood values, property attributes which do or do not justify pricing, preliminary insights into observations that nay come up in home inspections, etc. I really liked that he was sure to highlight any risks or downsides when we may have gotten overexcited about a property, indicating absolutely no pressure to rush a deal. Conversely, he also pointed out value-driving aspects that we may have overlooked in other cases to give us a real shot at making a great evaluation and decision. We made two offers, one at asking and one over asking, and were unsuccessful- not surprising given a statistic of multiple bids per property over the last several months! As much as it was disappointing not to get them, we actually were not upset because we felt confident in our value assessment and would not have wanted to pay more than we offered. Then... COVID happened. In the middle of our search. Steve adapted to these crazy times by immediately implementing safety measures such as bringing gloves to showings and maintaining distance, but all the while keeping things moving for us... We have reasons compelling us to purchase a house now, so we just could not afford to wait COVID out. Most importantly, his fact-based perspective and measured communication style allowed us to keep calm and just trust the process. So we carried on, and by our third offer, we were successful and it's the best of all the houses we have seen, and at the best price for the value, we have seen (in this case, asking). We are thrilled! He set us up with an amazing, thorough inspector and happens to be interested in design as well and has generously shared ideas and great contacts for certain reno/design jobs. Oh, and The KICKER: I have a property to rent out! Also during COVID! That has to happen at the same time! I was STRESSED out! I was going to go with a property management company to list my condo but Steve mentioned he did that too, so I thought why not. 11 hours after my listing was posted, I have a signed lease, and I'm now an investment property owner. Steve is quick to be in touch, by text or email, doesn't forget things or let things slip through the cracks, really help you navigate the waters and make the process simple and since you end up spending a certain amount of time with your agent, it's good to know that he can hold a conversation and he's really easy to get along with. For 1 million % sure, m buying a house and renting mine out during COVID was looking pretty risky for many, m many reasons, but Steve turned out to be my one-man risk mitigation plan. Thanks to two great deals with Steve over the years, I'm sure I'll be doing more business with him in the years to come when I buy my third property to add to the portfolio. THANK YOU STEVE!!
Allison - Buyer
Karen was great to work with. As a person without a car she helped me to get around and see not only the house but some of t he areas around it to get a better feel. She was very helpful in the process of making offers as well.
Jenna - Buyer
Absolutely recommended!! Greg helped us out for both buying and selling. Enthusiastic, optimistic and great to work with. Always available and kept us well informed of all developments. Extremely knowledgeable about the real estate situation and led the way with safe procedures and adaptations during the COVID crisis. Listed and sold quickly thanks to staging and virtual tours and on-point pricing! Stellar support and advice during unprecedented times
Pam & JM - Seller
Overall outstanding and exceeded all expectations. I highly recommend the real estate agent Chelsea Hamre. Well organized, structured and professional. Ms Hamre marketing for the property was well presented. Video, pictures, staging and the MLS listing was impeccable. Property was on the market only for two days. Ms Hamre communication skills is indeed an asset. Great job.
Stephane - Sold
This is the third time I have worked with the Hamre real estate team and have always been extremely satisfied. Chelsea is a dedicated, knowledgeable and professional agent. She provided me with the name of a painter and I was very satisfied with the timeliness and quality of work. Chelsea communicated often explaining the impact of the Covid 19 virus was having on buyers and reassured me that there was a lot of online activity with my property and that showings would be the last step in the buying process occurring after the buyer had done all their research on line and obtained financial approvals. I highly recommend Chelsea. Thanks for making this a seamless process
Louise - Seller
We had an incredible experience working Karen MacDonald . From the purchase of our new place thru the sale of our existing place she was professional confident and easy to get ahold of . She kept us calm during some very uncertain times and quickly changing conditions of Covid 19 . She stayed one step ahead of the game from the staging to pics to getting offers to present to us . In a matter of a week she had the job done . Can’t say enough on how appreciative my wife and I were of her being on our team . A highly recommend agent
Rob & Leanne - Buyer & Seller
Every element of the process worked really well. We especially appreciated the fact that we were able to deal with the agent we knew and with whom we had signed. Greg's responsiveness was timely and greatly appreciated. We have already referred the Hamre Team to people, including someone on our street. We said that Greg had a great plan to sell our home, and he activated it perfectly.
Valerie & Robert - Seller
Chelsea Hamre was very professional and very knowledgeable. We visited many properties to find the exact home I was looking for. Extremely helpful when it came to the negotiations and I feel I got a great value in my purchase. The thing I am impressed with most is the after purchase follow up and attention. There were a few items that needed to be followed up with the sellers agent and Chelsea took care of them with ease. I highly recommend.
Mike - Buyer
Karen helped us find a great home to fit our needs and wants. She was quick to help, friendly, and put in the extra effort following up with us during the move
Aloysio - Buyer
I had an awesome experience! I recommend Karen to anybody especially if you are insecure, she's always available to answer questions and reassure you. i'm very satisfy with my new place and the ones she suggested me. She knew exactly what I was looking for.
Elaine - Buyer

Greg always had time and answers for us and our questions for the vacant property we purchased were somewhat intricate. When we needed him, he was there. Always showing integrity and kept things real. This is my 12th property purchase and by far, my best transaction to date.
Adam - Buyer
While I was trying to find a place to move to with my two young boys, I was not sure what I was looking for or what will work. I changed my mind so many times and through out the process Karen was nothing but supportive and empathetic to my struggles in making a decision. Moving a family is never easy, and with her support I was comfortable telling her what was working and what wasn’t and why. She listened to every word and kept me positive and open to options as they came up. Finally, two months later, we did find a place!!! She was as happy as I was, I think even happier maybe. Lol. I am so happy to have worked with her and would recommend her and the Hamre team in a heart beat. Thank you Karen! So glad you were there with me for the big change in my families life.
Mira - Buyer
It was a pleasure to work with Karen on the purchase of my home. Being new to the area she was able to give me insight into the areas I was considering. Karen is excellent in her service in helping me to find and buy my dream home. I would highly recommend her to anyone who's planning on buying a home, she's kind, friendly and helpful, Karen was very easy to communicate with throughout the entire process
Daryl - Buyer
This was an easy and pleasant process and exceeded all my expectations. There were many questions and uncertainties on a variety of different aspects and Karen was able to help and guide us through the whole thing.
I will recommend Karen to others in the future.
Jeremy - Buyer
We first used this agent when we transferred to Ottawa and were so happy with his level of professionalism and knowledge that we did not hesitate to call him when selling the home we bought through him. Russell had a solid plan for marketing our home and as a result we sold our home while we were in Europe for above asking in four days. I highly recommend him for his knowledge of the market and his cheerful demeanour.
Ruth - Seller
Greg helped with many aspects of home purchase including recommendations on lawyers, home inspectors, and painters. He made us feel at ease that everything was being done that needed to be done. Very professional and extremely polite and knowledgeable.
Merrick - Buyer
We can’t say enough great things about working with Steve Hamre. He is a consummate professional and helped us throughout the process, even afterwards when our home closed, he went above and beyond what we expected, to make sure that we were happy. When we presented concerns, he was quick to respond and presented solutions every time. We had to sell our home in order to take possession of our current home and Steve made it happen! He sent a stager to the house and the house sold in a week! You’re getting the whole package when you work with Steve. Thanks for helping us close our forever home.
RK - Buyer & Seller
Greg was awesome to work with on our military house hunting trip. He has excellent knowledge of Ottawa neighbourhoods and the local market. He helped us in so many ways in finalizing our purchase. We would highly recommend him as a real estate agent.
Tracey - Buyer
Steve Hamre was very friendly and professional. As we were on a military house hunting trip, his efficient style of working was greatly appreciated and successful. He truly goes above and beyond to make his clients happy. He is well connected to other professionals in different industries, which is helpful if you are looking to do any renos. We would not hesitate to recommend him and would definitely work with him again.
Nina - Buyer
I would strongly recommend Steve Hamre. He is extremely professional and helpful. He replies to your questions and concerns immediately. He sold my house in no time and I am very pleased with his service.
Julie - Seller
Steve and his team are true pros, they are very efficient and get things done in a very timely manner. They went above and beyond to showcase our home in the best of light, it sold super quickly and the process was so smooth! I highly recommend!
Chantal - Buyer & Seller
Greg was outstanding as my agent in the selling process of my house. He exceeded my expectations, answering my questions, available at all times and very knowledgeable about the market. His video of the house was an excellent marketing tool, but more important was the fact that he felt the character of the house and it transpired through the video. He is more than an agent, he cares. I would highly recommend him.
Denyse - Seller
Karen is wonderful ...she did an amazing job ...highly recommend ..felt very comfortable during the process ...thank you Karen for all the hard work you did for us ..very much appreciated
Stacey - Buyer
Karen was very attentive and timely in helping me. She had great advice, was knowledgeable, was very warm and personable, and overall a pleasure to work with. I would be happy to recommend her to anyone.
Tara - Buyer
Steve was very responsive and did a great job setting expectations and outlining next steps. He was never impatient with my endless questions and made the purchase process very smooth.
Rebecca - Buyer
Steve was very easy to work with. He is very knowledge and definitely has his finger on the pulse of the market. He provides plenty of useful advice and things to consider while viewing homes. For a military family move, he struck a nice balance between expediency and understanding, and he ensured that everything was lined up in advance to make the whole process as smooth as possible. What I appreciated the most was the after-sale work that he did. Since we were gone so soon after making the purchase, Steve was instrumental in doing the leg work on the ground, organizing a time for letting in contractors and facilitating renovations prior to our arrival.
Steve - Buyer
Steve was very responsive and extremely helpful. He made everything as easy as possible. He was also very knowledgeable about the area. I would highly recommend him.
Trevor - Buyer
We had a very good experience with Greg. He always responded quickly to our email or phone calls. His kindness, patience, enthousiasm, and encouraging words made us feel good. The whole process of sellng went smoothly, and we were very satisfied.
Rosalie - Seller
Steve has a lot of experience and is very familiar with the market. He listened to what I wanted/needed and tailored his approach accordingly. He is confident, thorough and set me up for success.
Nadine - Seller
Greg went above and beyond expectations to ensure we found the right house for us. He made the process as stress free as possible especially considering our compressed time line with only a week available for our house hunting trip. Greg has been our agent for both buying and selling and we highly recommend him as an agent.
Lisa - Buyer
We have bought 2 houses with Greg Hamre in the last 4 years. Greg was really helpful both time and we knew we were in good hands with him. He was there to works for our interest and I would recommend him without hesitation.
Gen - Buyer
Steve is a great guy and has lots of contacts in the orleans area. He was quick to respond and made the time for us.
Andrew - Buyer
Steve was very good at listening to our concerns and managed to ensure our stress level was low. He explained what was going to happen and provided us updates as needed. He understood our needs as we moved forward. He provided us with help when required and ensured that our home was picture perfect. His assistants were generous with their time and energy and made us feel that they cared. Everything went smoothly and his strategy gave us fast and excellent results. We are completely satisfied with our experience in selling our home with Steve. We would highly recommend Steve and the Hamre real estate team to anyone. Thank you very much.
Linda - Seller
It was an abolsute pleasure working with Greg Hamre. The entire process was a positive experience. Greg’s knowledge, experience and professionalism is exceptional. He provided us with all the necessary details to make informed decisions and always returned and answered our emails/phone calls promptly. I would not hesitate recommending Greg and will be using his services again for our next sale. Thank you Hamre Team!
Nicole - Seller
Chelsea Hamre made my first home buying experience a breeze. Not only is Chelsea fortunate to have excellent mentors as her guiding figures in the industry, she’s also quintessentially proactive in all aspects of her role. When I initially approached her to undertake this next big step in my life I was unsure as to whether my idea was a good one. However, Chelsea made me see the true value and potential of my future investment and found something that doesn’t only suit my needs but makes me feel confident. I could not have asked for a better experience!
Cedric - Buyer
Karen was an absolute joy to work with during my search for my first home. Going in to this I had very little idea of what to expect and she provided so much guidance throughout the whole process. She gave very helpful comments about the various properties I was interested in and was quick to point out all kinds of things (both positive and negative), both from online listings and during actual viewings. She was patient and seemed to be very honestly interested in me securing a home that I would be excited with, not just something to close a sale. Her personality is great and she's quick to respond to communications. I asked so many questions and she always gave me thorough and thoughtful responses. This having been my first experience with a realtor I can say that I wasn't really thinking about how important personality would be. You end up spending quite a bit of time talking with this person so it's really great when you find someone like Karen who is so easy to get along with. I would 100% recommend her and will definitely be a return client someday when it's time to buy my second home.
Stacey - Buyer
Greg & the Hamre team really do know Ottawa. We bought our house through Greg & sold it 12 years later making both transactions the easiest we’ve ever had (family have also used Greg’s team). They are focused and driven to sell your home or help you find the one you’re looking for, relieving you of the stresses of moving. Greg & his team go out of their way to make sure all of the little details are taken care of (legal, staging, closing, etc) and are always a great help when you have questions or need recommendations for contractors, movers, cleaners - anything you need.
S & D Moser - Buyer & Seller
Greg Hamre was recommended to us upon our initial move to Ontario. Our most recent purchase and sale are the 4th / 5th time we have used his services. It was without any hesitation that we contacted him for these transactions. We find him very professional and personable. We knew that we could count on him to guide us with patience and expert knowledge to ultimately lead us to our next home. He has a passion to help families find their best next move while achieving it at the best value. Greg also has many wonderful people who work with him. I have to commend his stager, Alexis, the photographer, his office staff who set up showings and the effective communication of his Client Care Manager, Karen MacDonald. Collectively they are an amazing team. I would highly recommend Greg Hamre to be your relator.
Catherine - Seller
Chelsea has been a great agent. She was able to help me out last minute after I decided to purchase in Ottawa rather than GTA. She was attentive and very knowledgeable with everything I needed, especially with me being a first time home-buyer. She provided recommendations and advice when needed. Thank you so much, Chelsea.
Kayde - Buyer
Chelsea was an absolute dream to work with. As first time home buyers, my fiancé and I had no idea what to expect and were extremely overwhelmed by the current real estate market. Chelsea was patient as we looked through homes and figured out our wants and our needs. She was incredibly responsive, always messaging back within minutes, and was always positive and encouraging in our interactions. Chelsea always kept us informed and ensured our comfort throughout the entire process. From our experience, it was clear that Chelsea cares for her clients and wants nothing but the best for them. We are very lucky to have been able to work with her and would recommend her to anyone looking in the Ottawa market. Thanks a million for helping us find our perfect first home!
Lisa & Alex - Buyers
Greg was very knowledgeable about the properties and areas he showed me. He made sure I was in a good neighbourhood and surrounded by lots of amenities. He made my purchase as smooth and as possible by keeping me informed throughout the whole process. Greg posesses great communication skills and is very courteous. I highly recommend Greg as a real estate agent. He helped me find my new home and a new beginning closer to my children and grandkids
Estelle - Buyer
As a military family, we have moved around Canada and the U.S. quite extensively and have bought and sold quite a few homes. Our most recent purchase in Ottawa was our third in the past six years. All that to say, we have a fair bit of experience with housing markets and realtors and can honestly say, without hesitation, that we have dealt with none better than Greg Hamre. In a very tough market, with a severe inventory shortage and bidding wars, he really came through for us by finding us a house in the neighbourhood we really wanted, and for what we felt was a very fair price; we couldn't be happier. In all respects, Greg was an absolute pleasure to deal with and we would highly recommend him to anyone needing a realtor in the Ottawa area.
Paul & Billie - Buyer
Based on prior experiences (buying and selling) with Greg Hamre, we did not hesitate to once again count on his services. And again, he exceeded our expectations. Our house was sold in 2 days, and above asking price. He is always available, and is a true professional. He loves what he does, and it is evident in the way he cares for his clients. I would highly recommend his services to anyone, without any reservations.
Pierre - Seller
Greg Hamre was the agent we had when we moved to the NCR in 2011; we were so pleased with his professionalism and knowledge of the market in Ottawa that when we were being posted out in 2019, we knew that we would retain him once more. We could not find another realtor who is more fluent in the CAF move policies, entitlements, etc. He assisted us in all our queries with the utmost respect and professionalism. We will highly recommend him to not only all of our military friends who are being posted in and out of the NCR; but to all of our friends and family who are looking to make a move. Thank you Greg and your team and if we are ever moving back to the NCR, you will be the first we contact.
Charlene - Seller
What we appreciated most about Greg was his honesty. He was genuine and he gave us great advice for the sale and purchase of our home. We really appreciated how he always followed up with any questions in a very timely manner and also helped put our minds at ease when activity was slow. One saying he used that helped through the process was “quality over quantity”. We put our trust in him and he delivered! He is also connected so we had a very reliable home inspector do the inspection and he will give us contacts for the renovations we have planned for our new place. We were very satisfied with Greg and his team. They were professional, courteous and reliable.
Allison - Seller
Steve did an excellent job looking out for my interests. Happy with the thoroughness and timeliness of his support in getting the property listed and getting the word out.
Nick - Seller
I would highly recommend Greg Hamre to anyone looking for a real estate agent. Knowledgeable and very professional. I had interviewed another agent for this listing and I could tell right away that they were not experienced in selling a home that was on well and septic. The Hamre team gave me all the help and information I needed to make the selling process as painless as possible. Greg sold this property quickly, priced fairly and was there to help when a problem came up on the purchaser's side. He's the type of person you'd want as your next door neighbor!
Ron - Seller
Great experience, Greg and his family bring years of real-estate knowledge at your service. Even though the seller threw us a curve during the negotiation, our situation was quickly and efficiently resolved by Greg. In any negotiation there are high and lows, having Greg in our corner and looking out for our personal interest was vitally important to us. The experience was positive and I would strongly recommend Greg.
Denis & Monique - Seller
Steve provided outstanding services for our relocation to Ottawa. His knowledge of the area is so extensive it was real value added in the decision making process and was integral in purchasing a great house that suits our family needs. Communication with Steve were very easy, he was prompt in responding to every questions and even used FaceTime to show us houses before we arrived on our house hunting trip which was an advantage in a fast moving market. I will definitely recommend him to friends and family.
Alex - Buyer
Steve Hamre is excellent. The sale went extremely quickly and we received more than expected. He is very knowledgeable. Pictures and video were extremely well done. Staging advice was valuable. Website is fabulous. Highly recommend.
Jessica - Seller
Greg Hamre was highly professional, thorough and always managed to make us feel like we were his highest priority. He responded to every inquiry without delay and provided sound and objective advice. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to others in the future. The entire Hamre team made the experience as easy and smooth as possible. Thank you!
Louise - Seller
Greg laid out a tailor-made plan for our home that resulted in a stress-free sale. We knew right from the start that Greg was on our side and understood our unique needs. His wealth of experience and deep level of commitment led to a sale within 3 days and WELL above comparables in our neighbourhood. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Hamre team to anyone. They are organized, responsive and most importantly we could tell that the whole team cared about us and our home.
Jeff - Seller & Buyer
Our house resulted in two offers on the day it was listed. And we sold it for thousands of dollars more than the list price. In addition, he negotiated a closing date that matched the closing date of the property we had purchased. What more is there to add, given that specific factors such as knowledge of the market, communication skills and follow-up are covered in the questions listed above.
Ron - Seller
Greg Hamre and his team are the consummate professionals. My wife and I have used Greg as our agent on multiple moves over the past 15 years and we trust his knowledge of the real estate market and very importantly, his instincts and negotiation techniques. In our most recent sale, we were unfortunately handicapped by two townhouse units in our immediate courtyard community that were never updated or renovated and drew list and sale prices that we felt did not reflect the true market value of our home. These units were sold a few months before we listed with Greg. Thankfully, Greg could immediately see the love and care that we put into our townhouse/condo and listed our home at a considerably higher value than the other two units recently sold. He brought in a photographer in the late summer knowing that we were interested in selling in the new year and then the photographer took inside photos closer to listing in February. The stager he hired was exceptional and our house looked spacious and prestine. Greg then parlayed his marketing skills into social media and virtual magic. In four days on the market we had 11 in-house showings during a pandemic in the dead of winter. We got an offer immediately that was without conditions and exactly on our list price. We received a letter from the buyers through Greg demonstrating how much they loved our property and we had no choice but to sell to this wonderful family. Horror stories of selling one's house are all too familiar. We did not want that to happen to us. This is why we have used Greg again and again. We trust him and he delivers every time. So should you.
Bruce - Seller
I came from the GTA and Greg is very knowledgeable of the Ottawa market as well as the GTA market as he always drew comparisons for my understanding. Greg demonstrated that his focus was not to close the transaction, but to get the right property for us. He would take us to several properties and when we think we liked one of them, he would tell us the things we may not like in this particular property. Greg quickly learned our preferences and although he took us to see any property we requested, he told us ahead of time the properties we would like and the ones we would not like. The Ottawa market was very dynamic and houses were sold in hours after they were listed, thus, we were kind of frustrated, however, Greg always assured us that he would get for us a house that we would LOVE, and indeed he did. We are very grateful to him.
Warsame - Buyer
Steve was amazing. He was professional and knowledgeable and made selling my house and buying my new house stress free. He has excellent advice and is definitely a top agent. I would use him as my realtor again in a heartbeat!
Lori - Seller & Buyer
Steve is a consummate professional and outstanding communicator. He kept in close contact with us throughout the selling phase even when he was on vacation out of country. Truly an amazing real estate professional who is knowledgeable, respectful, honest and trustworthy. We would not hesitate to recommend Steve and his team as our experience was truly exceptional.
Maria - Seller
Greg has assisted us through 3 home purchases. His knowledge of the real estate market is outstanding and it is clear that he has a lot of experience in the business. Each time we have met with Greg, he went above and beyond to find us the perfect home, even if it meant that it was for sale by another agent (thus having an impact on his own commission). His level of customer service is beyond reproach, and continues years after you have signed the agreement. He is honest, responds quickly to questions and is excellent at managing expectations. Throughout the process, he provides you with a range of options that are based on your needs and within your budget. We highly recommend Greg's services to anyone who is looking to buy, sell or rent
Nancy - Seller
Greg and his team made the stressful time of selling your home as easy as possible. He had the house staged beautifully for a very prompt sale of our home. He also was there to help with every step of the purchase of our new home. The video he made of our home was excellent and reflected the beauty of our home to potential buyers. Our home sold in 3 days!
Mary Ellen - Buyer & Seller
Steve Hamre has been my agent for 6 separate real estate transactions and had been exceptional in his professional service. I suffer from major anxiety disorder and can be a challenge to deal with but Steve treated me in a respectful way and was patient with me when necessary.
David - Buyer & Seller
Greg Hamre has been and continues to be an extremely valuable resource for our family not only in the purchase of our home but in many aspects of our lives. He not only steered us toward the perfect neighbourhood for our family but recommended an awesome school, provided information and contacts to help us carry out most of the other tasks necessary when moving long distance. Greg goes beyond what you would expect from a real estate agent he really seems to listen to his clients and knows what they need and makes sure to find it for them. Greg is always there when you have a question I just can’t say enough about him to explain. His Knowledge and resources are limitless, he’s so friendly and easy to talk. We feel as though Greg has set our family up for an amazing future! We moved from a city quite far away and knew very little about Ottawa and it’s communities, we have been in our new home less than a year now and we are all so happy here words cannot describe just how much! Thanks to Greg Hamre!
Suzie - Buyer
Steve Hamre is top tier agent with decades of experience in the Ottawa market. His understanding of the region allowed my home to be accurately listed, negotiated and closed above listing price. Steve is always accommodating and works tirelessly for his clients. A consummate professional with an over reaching network, Steve Hamre will make it happen and ensure your real estate experience is smooth and advantageous.
David - Seller & Buyer
Steve showed great awareness of the market and developed and communicated a strategy regarding pricing and timing that worked out better than I could have hoped! It was a pleasure to work with Steve!
Jon - Seller
We were very happy with the outcome and all of the support we got from Steve. Steve was very knowledgeable of the market and proposed an excellent strategy to sell easily and quickly. I highly recommend him
Jennifer - Seller
Greg Hamre went well out of his way to help me make important decisions about my home.He was knowledgeable and even referred me to his own contacts who helped with legalities/quotes/contract work.He's never too busy to answer his phone or respond to a tex
Sophie - Buyer
You will not find a better agent than Karen! She takes time to understand your requirements and works tirelessly to ensure you find the best available in the market suited to your budget. Easy to work with, very open, honest, and professional. Who would have believed buying a home during the pandemic would be so hitch-free. We are thankful to have worked with Karen and will definitely recommend her to any potential buyers
To sum up what is great about the Hamre Team and in this instance, Greg Hamre, is the attention to detail. From start to finish, he advised, confirmed, anticipated our questions and guided us whenever necessary. He knew the community we are currently living in and the one we are moving to. We are repeat customers but he took nothing for granted. He took the time to make valid comparisons. Our neighbourhood is not a suburb where all the homes are variations of other models in the community. Each one is unique and as a result, direct comparisons are more difficult, His knowledge of the community resulted in us getting a better price than we had anticipated. He advised us of changes in marketing and selling our house since we purchased this home. And most importantly, he priced the home correctly and worked hard to ensure that we sold at the right price. In addition, the Hamre Team works like a Team. The Stager, the Photographer and the marketing done by Greg exceeded our expectations. We have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who is looking to buy or sell their home in what can be a stressful and challenging experience
Dave & Betty - Buyer & Seller
Chelsea had this on lock. We looked at 4 houses and we had our dream home within 2 weeks of starting our search and in a market like we have in Ottawa right now, that blew our expectations out of the water. Chelsea was very knowledgeable and guided us through the process with ease. I give her a 5 out of 5 all the way!
Charles + Kelly - Buyers
Under promised and over delivered is the sentiment that comes to mind when I think of the Greg and Steve Hamre Real Estate Team. We have been involved in multiple listings over a great many years and I can say with complete confidence "this team is the best"!
Jennifer - Seller
I have use the Hamre team for two sales and three purchases and highly recommend them for their professionalism and genuine care for their clients. Their knowledge of the housing market and particularly the Orleans area is second to none. The selling and purchasing process was seamless.
Pierre - Seller & Buyer
We have used Greg to sell and buy a home. In both processes, he was more than great. In helping us finding a house, he said one sentence that proved to us how attentive he was to our needs and desires: - I will not show you 30 houses, I know what you are looking for, and I will not waste your time seeing houses that I know won't be to your liking.- He was very selective. He did his homework and he was bang on! All the houses we saw had something that we liked. When we settled on one in particular, it was magical, those are the words used to describe the house. Greg is an awesome person as well as awesome real estate agent, and we would highly recommend him to anyone.. If ever we sell our home and buy somewhere else in the area of Ottawa, he would be our first and ONLY pick. We feel very lucky to have met him.. Thank you Greg..
Andre - Buyer
Recently, we had the good fortune of retaining the services of Greg Hamre, Remax Affiliates Realty, for the sale of our home in Cumberland. We found Greg to be highly motivated, very knowledgeable and well informed on the market conditions in Cumberland as well as the trends in the surrounding areas. As the first step, he provided us with a detailed evaluation that reflected the market. This evaluation was used as a guide and followed in the preparation of his marketing strategy. The advertising and media exposure were solid and value was added to the strategy by the team approach. Greg was always very positive and readily available to provide advice on related matters. All appointments were kept with our best interests in mind including the staging. He was an Agent you could trust and listened closely to our needs and what we had to say. His response to any concerns we had was very professional. We have no hesitation to recommend Greg to anyone who might be selling their home in Cumberland or the surrounding areas.
Gordon & Charlotte - Seller
Our house went on the market on a Friday, 5 showings later we had an offer. The house was Sold by Monday afternoon. It takes an experienced and professional team to get this result. We were very happy from start to finish with Greg Hamre and his team. We would highly recommend Greg Hamre.
Nancy - Seller
Mr Hamre was at all times present during the selling period for my house.He was very professional, and both gracious and personable throughout the process.I would highly recommend him to any individual about to enter the real estate market.

We have worked with Steve Hamre in the past both buying and selling and we have always enjoyed a great working relationship. When selling our home, Steve provided us with excellent help in preparing our home for the market (ie staging and repairs). When buying, Steve was extremely accommodating to our schedule and found us the ideal house before it came on the market.

What can we say... Greg Hamre sold our home in one day! And that is thanks to his staging experts, his market knowledge and his ability to properly showcase our home.

We would recommend him in a heartbeat to everyone.

We would recommend and have recommended Greg Hamre to others. He has extensive knowledge of our neighborhood and promotes the area with prospective buyers. The Hamre Team provided a home stager, drone pictures and videos of our property. His response time for inquiries and feedback was very quick. Greg Hamre is an honest professional and we appreciate his guidance through the sale process.

Penny - Seller
Outstanding experience-- Greg was able to not only sell my home under challenging circumstances - but was able to find me something that fit my needs very quickly and without hiccup. A truly caring person- he is about making sure you get what you need -- he isn't just about the sale. Highly recommend Greg and his team
Ed - Buyer & Seller
I was very anxious about selling my home and moving during the pandemic, especially since I wasn't going to be in Ottawa for viewings, the close date, etc. I really needed to work with someone I could trust, and who could take the lead each step of the way. I found Chelsea's bio online, I was looking for a young, female, professional like myself, and she was that and so much more. She provided excellent advice and guidance and it was a joy to work with the contractors she recommended. In every case, they had worked with her and her family since the company started. It made me feel like I was amongst friends and that I could be honest and transparent about any nerves or concerns. My home sold immediately and well above asking, all while I was out of town. We met via phone, Zoom, and Chelsea's video updates were a unique and thoughtful touch. I have only positive things to say about my experience, reach out to Chelsea, you won't be disappointed!
Meghan - Seller
Chelsea was a pleasure to work with in the sale of my downtown property. From the outset, she showed a strong understanding of both the market and my priorities. She outlined a detailed and tailored strategy for pricing, marketing, and showings. For example, she developed a unique “story telling” video specific to my property. The video highlighted the features of the property in an impactful way to attract the ideal buyer. The story telling video made my listing stand out amongst others. I appreciated her innovative approach to real estate and client services. Chelsea’s friendly personality is complimented by her professionalism. She kept me well-informed throughout the selling process with her clear and responsive communication. She did not fail me when I said I wanted my property sold in a week for top dollar. She made it happen. I would recommend Chelsea without reservation. She is a dedicated and innovative realtor who will work hard to get you the results you want.
Andrea Seller
Chelsea was pleasant through the entire process. From the minute she walked into our home to the sale of our home she was always professional. She was very respectful and was there to answer all of our questions. I was very impressed with her posts and virtual tours for our home. She really highlighted how great of a home and neighbourhood we live in. She definitely made the process of selling our place less stressful. Chelsea came into our home with a plan and executed 100%. Would highly recommend working with her. Thanks again.
Amanda - Seller
Steve is easy to work with and an honest agent. He found our house and when we weren’t keen on the area he told us all the pluses. When we saw the house we fell in love with it. He was right on all counts with the neighbor hood and house. Thanks on all counts!
Mike - Buyer
In selecting a Realtor, for the sale of a Parents house, we selected 3 Realtors to interview.Greg Hamre provided the most professional approach, and provided a level of personal comfort to help us through a difficult transition for our aging parent.He provided a realistic assessment of both the real-estate potential of the neighbourhood in general, and the prospects for this house, which had not undergone upgrades. He identified those elements which would provide a positive return on investment, and cautioned against those that would simply result in unnecessary expenditures.Greg recommended a sales approach, advised on how to best present the house, and provided an apppropriate pricing and marketing strategy. The House sold within the agreed sales price and time.We used him again to assist with the sale of a property for a friend of ours.

As first time home buyer I could not of asked for someone better than Chelsea. She was always available to us and would answer all are question at all times of the day (Very quick to reply as well). Chelsea is not just great at her job but is an awesome person! She made our search easy and was able to find something we loved in this crazy market. We highly recommend her !
Martin - Buyer
To say that Chelsea exceeded our expectations would be an understatement. From day one of our search for our first home to grow our family, Chelsea was responsive, knowledgeable, professional and friendly. With a particular location in mind, Chelsea was patient in helping us find the perfect one, and then helping us navigate the competitive market once it came time to place our offer. We are so grateful to have worked with Chelsea throughout this experience and we would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home. Thanks so much, Chelsea!
First Time Homebuyers
Greg really knew the area and help us select a great property not only for our family but a great investment too! Greg is our agent now and forever!
Colin - Buyer
Greg was extremely responsive throughout our search and eventual purchase. Not being from the Ottawa area, we found him to be very knowledgeable about all neighbourhoods across the city. He has always been efficient and pleasant to deal with. He has gone above and beyond with follow ups and additional support and assistance since we have moved in, to ease our transition into our new city. We would not hesitate to recommend Greg to anyone.
Mavis - Buyer
I cannot begin to express how much I appreciated Greg’s assistance during the purchase of my first home, and then the sale of that home a few years later. What I appreciated the most about working with Greg was always knowing that he was looking out for my best interest. He is a very professional and honest person, whom I trusted and would highly recommend to anyone in Ottawa who is looking to buy and / or sell their home. His expertise and years of experience combined with his professional approach made the experience very pleasant.
Jenn - Buyer
As the selling agent Greg made the deal happen even when I thought the deal was dead after negotiations stalled. He worked hard to get the buying party back to the table and negotiated the selling price of our home to our liking. As a buying agent Greg was very efficient to get us to look at potential homes and didn't waste our time showing homes we weren't interested in. We bought the house we really wanted at a fair price. The Hamre support team was great at helping us with referrals for movers etc.
Rob - Buyer & Seller
Please note that greg is very professional in all he does from advice to home staging to home searching. We were nervous due to the market at the time but he kept checking in and letting us know what was happening on his end. Thanks a bunch!
Danielle - Seller
Fantastic support throughout the whole process from accomodating our schedules to finding the perfect home to a smooth negotiation! We were always well-informed and loved the online transactions!
Pam - Buyer
Steve was very knowledgeable and professional. He took care of both selling our home and finding our new home. I have recommended him to my family and friends and continue to do so.
Karen - Buyer & Seller
I would definitely recommend Chelsea Hamre to family and friends trying to find their dream home in a competitive market such as this one. Chelsea has the tenacity and persistence to get the job done. She is very responsive, having answered all our calls and texts promptly, and was always able to quickly find out the answers to our many questions regarding specs on listings of interest to help us make an informed decision. She got us into viewings very quickly, usually same day. Thank you Chelsea! 
Chelsea is everything you could ever want in an agent. She’s polite, professional, and goes above and beyond. Responds in timely manner, flexible in showings and meetings.

Carey + Christopher
“We are moving from New Brunswick to Ottawa and due to pandemic limitations, it was essential for us to have a realtor we could depend upon.
 Greg offered us outstanding service at all parts of the purchasing process. His knowledge of the properties we were considering was invaluable as it enabled us to make a decision on the right property that met our needs. 
We were unable to physically view the property and Greg accommodated by doing a video walkthrough on Facetime, which allowed us to see the key features of the condo and immediate area. 
We would highly recommend Greg and his team and have appreciated their professional and caring approach in helping us secure our new home. Thank you !! ”
Tom Black - Buyer
Chelsea is a wonderful agent. She is caring, knowledgeable and supportive every step of the way. I was lucky to have a family friend refer Chelsea to me. She was quick to contact me and answered all of my questions before, during and after the deal was made. I am extremely lucky to have met Chelsea and to have worked with her. If you are looking for a home and need someone that cares and is knowledgeable, contact Chelsea! Thank you, Chelsea, and the Hamre team for making my first home buying experience a wonderful one. Looking forward to working with you in the future.
Buyer in Downtown Ottawa
We found Greg Hamre by doing a search for reviews of real-estate agents in Ottawa and I was struck by the quantity of ratings he and his brother have and the detailed positive comments from their clients. They have nearly twice as many reviews as all other agents on this site. From the moment I reached out to Greg, the outstanding customer service began. He followed up on our call immediately with a video thanking us for the opportunity to present their approach and touched base by text a few more times before our actual meeting. Greg showed up promptly and was well prepared with history of sales in our area as well as other properti es for sale in the area. He spoke about their approach and gave us solid advice on how to price and approach the sale of our house. His professional stager and photographer came in and subtly did their magic to make our house look amazing. The showings went efficiently. We were kept abreast of every visit in advance and received feedback afterwards. We were astonished at how quickly the sale went. The negotiation was smooth and efficient and Greg led us through each step. To further complement his professional service, we received recommendations for bankers, lawyers and movers as well as a link to a site to help us manage our move. We are thrilled to have worked with Greg and would happily recommend him to anyone seeking an agent.
Helen & Bob
This was our third transaction with Steve in two years and every time he exceeded our expectations. The last one was exceptionally smooth since we were not even in town during the showings and sale. Steve expertly set up the sale for competing offers and and the sale price exceeded our expectations by far. Steve then referred us to an excellent real estate agent at our new location in another province.  
Martina - Seller
We had a great experience buying our first house with Chelsea as our agent. We had recently moved to Ottawa and she was able to help guide us through the process with her knowledge of the various neighborhoods and market trends. Chelsea has a great positive energy, which is awesome when going through the stressful process of buying property! She would always respond very quickly to our emails or texts. Couldn’t recommend Chelsea enough! Do yourself a favour and get in touch with her!
Sebastien - Buyer
“It was a pleasure working with Karen. She took the time to understand my requirements and provided the guidance and advice to navigate the stressful process as a first time home-buyer. She provided prompt responses to any inquiries and was flexible to accommodate my schedule. I would highly recommend Karen.”

Francis - Seller
From day 1 it was a pleasure working with Greg. He respected all the Covid-19 protocols when visiting our house. He took time to listen and answer all our questions and explain how to get our house to market. We were especially impressed with the pictures and video he created, that helped explain and visualize the highlights of our property. He definitely helped make the process of selling our house less stressful for us. Thank you and your team Greg. 
Dan - Seller
In the last 20 years, we have made fifteen real estate transactions, each with a different real estate agent. When we decided to sell our custom home on a rural property in the east end of Ottawa, we knew we wanted to work with the best. So... we called Hamre Real Estate Team Re/Max; known as a powerhouse in Ottawa real estate market. Every single interaction with the Hamre Team was professional. Steve Hamre helped us understand the current market conditions. He explained the value of our home and the listing price. He recommended strategies to suit our needs and aimed for top dollar. And, through it all he was patient and sensitive about all the stress and emotions that come with selling a family home. Steve was kind and sincere. He cared about more than just the business of selling a house; a rare find in the real estate industry. And when it came time to shine - Steve and the Hamre Team were best in class!!! The full suite of services (staging, photography, the mix-media advertising, and the technology (e.g. apps for managing house showing schedules, buyer feedback, 3D floor plans) were absolutely outstanding. We sold in record time for above asking! And to sweeten the deal, the offer hit all our preferences without us having to negotiate. Steve had worked with the buyers agent ahead of the offer to make sure our closing date, exclusions and conditions were closely matched! Thanks Steve! Would I recommend the Hamre Real Estate Team to friends and family? You bet! I already have! We are so grateful to Steve for looking out for us! To the whole Hamre Team - a huge thank-you - I know it takes each one of you to make this kind of magic happen! 
Craig + Heather -Sellers
Greg was wonderful! He was always available for any questions I had and very patient. He was very polite and respectful of my feelings and worries. I felt like I was his priority I will definitely recommend Greg to everyone who is looking to sell their home. P.S. I even wanted to buy my house when I saw the virtual tour that Greg did !!!
Camille - Seller
We have worked with Steve before as he sold our house when we were going overseas. Steven was a great help to us especially because we are overseas. He was patient with us and always accessible when we needed advice or just a quick check in.
Kasia White - Seller
I enjoyed my experience with Chelsea! She was very attentive to my needs and made recommendations accordingly. She was quite communicative, time conscious and reachable. Chelsea advised on when to step away from deals either because she didn’t want me to over pay more than the actual value, or because the neighbourhood wasn’t right. My advice for homebuyers, trust the process and the right property will come!
Mike - Buyer
Greg provided outstanding customer service from start to finish. He has excellent contacts (painters, stager, etc) to get the house in the best showing condition. He is very knowledgeable about comparable properties. This was my sixth real estate transaction with Greg and he has produced outstanding results each time. I am always happy to recommend Greg to friends and family!
Kristina - Seller
Chelsea is hands down the best agent out there. She made us feel so comfortable with the whole process as we had no clue what we were getting into, being first time home buyers. She took the time to answer all of our questions thoroughly and made sure we understood everything. With her professionalism and great advice we were able to score our dream place! Would absolutely recommend Chelsea to any new home buyers, looking forward to working with her again in the future! 
Tanya & Patrick - Buyers
