Testimonials

We are extremely pleased with the service we received from Nina in the selling of our home. She was always professional, enthusiastic and cheerful in all our communications. She was very knowledgeable about the market and priced our home at a fair price which allowed for a quick sale in a down market. She was very patient and understood our needs with regard to the sale of our home. She was always available and went the extra mile to look after our home for us. She absolutely is a first rate realtor and we highly recommend her.

Nina is a true professional, providing excellent service coupled with a good balance levity, during an extremely stressful period - selling a house and moving. She ensured I had all the information I needed, when I needed it and provided feedback at the right time. With her diligence and commitment my house sold in a very short period of time and a very difficult market at a fair price.

We have just sold our first home with Nina Tachuk's help and would like to express our appreciation for her outstanding services. We couldn't have asked for a more knowledgeable, efficient and fun to deal with agent.

After listing with another realtor and nothing happening, we contacted Nina. A couple of days later, we saw the results - we were amazed with her staging and showcasing of our property that was already vacant at that time. We received an offer, that led to the sale, within 1 day (!) from the listing date and very close to the asking price. Nina's creativity with emphasizing all of the upgrades we put into our home showed potential buyers the real value of the property. She not only marketed our home the way it deserved to be, she was also excellent with advising on legal matters during our closing negotiations.

We will highly recommend Nina's services to our family, friends and neighbours (and have already done so) and wish her all the best.

Sincerely,

Barbara and Edgar Cadonic

 

My husband and I had the extreme pleasure of getting to know Nina in November of 2009. We met at an open house in Manotick. We had no intentions of buying a house at that moment in time - we were only just looking!!! We both found Nina to be open and forth coming - characteristics we both admire. On our way home we decided two things - one - we wanted to buy this house and two - we only wanted Nina as our agent. Nina guided us through all the ups and downs of the negotiations and then helped us sell our own home (36 hours on the market - in mid-December - and it was sold at full asking price !!!).

But what showed us the really FANTASTIC agent she is came to light while she was selling my father's home. He had passed away in September of that year and my brother and I had not yet met Nina so we had chosen another agent. While this agent had our interests at heart - they seemed not to be overly motivated to ell the home. We waited out the contract and asked Nina to see what she could do. Nina went above and beyond by researching the area - speaking with neighbours, the neighbourhood association, and the City, as there was still building going on in the area. Any questions that there may have been, she had answers or solutions for and within a short time she had the house sold and at close to full asking price. I feel lucky and privileged to know Nina and to call her friend.

We simply could not thank you enough for all the help, advise and guidance that you have given us to this point. You've been both patient and understanding in helping us find a place we can now call home. I realized something this morning on the way to the dog park..."a house is a building, a home is who you share it with... Thanks again for everything

Moving from out of town, we were unfamiliar with the house rental market in Ottawa. Nina's knowledge of the area, her professionalism and commitment to helping us find the perfect home was clear at our first contact with her. She went above and beyond to ensure that we got exactly what we were looking for. We cannot recommend her highly enough!

We would like to thank Royal Lepage Gale Real Estate for the successful marketing of our home and the purchase of a new home.

In particular, we would like to commend Nina Tachuk for her tireless work to bring our dream to fruition. Her marketing skills and boundless energy resulted in a very quick sale of our home at our full asking price. At the same time, she negotiated the purchase of a newly-built home when timing was extremely important. Her knowledge of legal matters also played an important role.

We do hope you appreciate Nina’s marketing knowledge, dedication, and drive.

Once transferred to Ottawa, we started our search for a place we would call home. After searching for over six months, we got lucky. We walked into an open house, and found the ideal real estate agent we would be working with and that was you.

Your professionalism and ethical approach along with your genuine care towards our need was second to none.

The fact that you listened, understood what we were looking for as far as our family needs were, is what set you apart from other agents we had come across.

In a short period, you helped us find where we call home. It is important for us to always share our good experiences with others, therefore, you have become a household name for us and we continue to tell all those we meet of how blessed we truly were.

You are a true gem and we hope to work with you again in the future.

We were selling our house at Christmas time. We were trying to buy another house so we had to sell our house before we could buy the one we wanted. We listed our house with Nina. Nina helped with staging the home. We sold our house within 3 weeks. Nina was there when we needed her. She got the job done!

It took a lot of time to choose a real estate agent that we could trust and connect with. Nina was open and very knowledgeable in what she does. Her never ending energy to find the perfect house is amazing. She would check out the houses prior to us spending precious time and tell us if it was worth a visit. She told us the truth on what to expect and what the cost would be to upgrade. I appreciated so much her honesty and she would not let me purchase a house that would be a big regret. I wouldn't hesitate at all to refer Nina as a real estate agent because at the end of day she became a great friend.

Nina did a great job helping us find our first home at a great price. She put in a lot of time and was friendly, knowledgeable, and professional throughout the entire process. She's the first person we'll call the next time we need an agent!

Nina was my real estate agent during a very difficult period in my life. I had to quickly sell a large home (that was in need of "upgrades" to make it more appealing for sale), and she had to get the best price possible (without those upgrades) and then she had to try and find a smaller, more affordable house, within Manotick! Quite a task!!!! Well, Nina rose to the challenge. She accomplished EVERYTHING and yet did it with such kindness and patience and never lost her compassion for myself and for my children. It was such a difficult time for all of us but Nina truly made it easier - my children still speak of Nina with warmth and gratitude. Nina is confident, caring, warm, fun and yet also has the necessary "savvy" to survive in the world of real estate. Nina will get the job done the best way possible - on that you can count!

Nina helped my husband and I buy our first home. This was a new and scary experience for a young couple but Nina walked us through everything and got to know us personally to help us find the right home for our needs. We are so happy with the out come. Thank you Nina!!!

"Because we've lived all across the country we've worked with agents in four different provinces. I would certainly put Nina at the top of that list. She spent a lot of time with us but we certainly felt no pressure to buy right away. She was more interested in finding the right house for us than in just making a sale. Nina very quickly was able to differentiate between our needs and wants - something so important in a real estate agent."

Evan Purchase

 

Your energy and your service oriented communication through sending us, on a continual basis, information on units in the location you knew we were looking for! Your personal touch and honest sharing with your clients was much appreciated. Overall, your service oriented approach was great!

Nina is a very friendly and dedicated Real Estate professional. She is detail oriented and always willing to go the extra mile for her clients. Our transition from a large home to a townhouse was very smooth with her constant efforts.

I just wanted to send you a little note thanking you for the amount of time and effort that you put into my listing. You are very good at listening to ones needs and putting together the best action plan in order to get positive results. You went over and above the call of duty to make sure that my property was properly showcased and you always dealt with me in a respectful, patient, pleasant and professional manner. Because of your personal attention, the dedication with which you handled my listing and your personable manner, you have gone from being an agent to becoming my friend.

Nina is helping us find the home of our dreams. She is extremely knowledgeable and very accommodating. Her positive energy and belief in getting things done just makes “good” happen. She's friendly, hard working and professional, yet she makes you feel like an old friend from the first time you contact her. Nina really takes the guess work out of buying and is honest in her opinions making sure she has all the correct facts. We are enjoying the experience with her very much.

Nina helped us buy our first home in Canada. As immigrants from the UK we were fairly naive not only to the housing market but also the complexities of how homes in Canada are constructed...what adds value...what to look out for in a home etc.

Nina patiently and diligently explained all the subtle nuances of home buying in the region and helped us view countless properties.

We would recommend Nina in an instant. Not only is she extremely astute when it comes to her profession and the market, she is honest, dependable and cannot do enough for her clients....just as importantly she is great fun to be around!! When you view as many homes as we did....the importance of a friendly realtor / client relationship is priceless. She is a star!
