Some of Our Client Testimonials...
By: Mike & Michelle
My wife and I have used Josée Michaud exclusively since first arriving in Ottawa. Due to the nature of my work, my family moves quite often and since being introduced to Josée and her team we use her realty services for both purchases and sales of our homes. Josée and her team are a "one-stop shop" as she knows tradesmen/repairmen/painters/etc.; (you name it) in order to get the home ready for sale and all at affordable prices. Due to Josée and her team's efforts our most recent home sold in six days at 99.5% of asking. With the sale firm we then took her and her husband to Kingston to purchase a home. With two realtors for the price of one we were able to select a new home and let Josée negotiate hard on our behalf which proved fruitful with a substantial price reduction in the purchase of our new home. You want Josée on your side of the table whether purchasing or selling a home!

They are an amazing Team. They know their stuff and they make things happen. One of the best experiences that my wife and I have ever had with regards to dealing with a purchase as large as the one that James and Josée made come true. Thank You very much and we will refer and recommend both of you to everyone that we know.

We were a little unsure on how to start the buying process for our first home but Josée was there for us every step of the way! She answered all of our questions and guided us through each step, ensuring that we felt comfortable with every detail. Thank you Josée for providing us with an exceptional service and for finding us our first home! We would definitely recommend Josée and anyone at The Quality Homes Team!
As for your agent Josée!!! I couldn't ask for better. She was always there for me, always in a good mood and of service. She knew her stuff and knew what to do next. In other words, always a professional, even when I pested her. She'll go far. Go luck for the team and may you all have a good season.

As a first time home buyer, I felt that Kristina was genuine in helping me feel comfortable about the entire process of buying a home. Her approach was honest, genuine and despite being continuously peppered with questions, she responded to each of them immediately and with a great deal of professionalism. I can honestly say that Kristina has made my experience feel seamless. She provided lots of helpful advice on possible upgrades in the home to the names of reputable local businesses that can assist us. Kristina continues to respond to any questions we have in a very speedy manner whether it be via email, a text message or over the phone. It's a pleasure doing business with her as we anxiously await to take full procession of our first home. Thanks Kristina!
Everything has gone fine with Kristina thus far. This was our first house purchase in Canada and she walked us through all the steps and responded promptly to any questions. We have found her to be trustworthy and we’re hoping things will continue to go smoothly as we approach the closing date in a month.

Being first time home buyers, we were a little intimidated at first. Luckily we found Josée and she made the process much easier than we had anticipated. Any questions we had were answered quickly and efficiently. We are both very happy with our first purchase and we couldn't be more pleased with the service. We thank you for the time and effort, making our first experience as easy as it was. We cannot wait to take possession of our new house. We definitely recommend Josée and the Quality Home Team to anyone!
By: Brian & Barb
Thanks to Kristina we were able to find the right home for our family, she is dedicated to her profession, has all the right contacts and works tirelessly, we worked well into a Saturday night to get a deal done on our purchase, this is just a small example of what Kristina does to please her customer, Thanks to her for all she did to make it happen, I would recommend Kristina and the Quality Homes team to anyone thinking about selling or buying a new home.

Our experience with Josée and James has been nothing but excellent. Words cannot describe how appreciative we are for all of their help. Their resourcefulness and knowledge of the real estate market is very impressive. Their people skills is fantastic and they are always available if you have any questions, even after your house is sold. Once we decided to sign with Josée and James, my husband and I knew we were in good hands and the worries went away. We were able to enjoy the process of selling and buying a home. I would HIGHLY recommend Josée and James to anyone. I refer to them as "the dream team of real estate".
By: Sophie & Josh
Our experience with Josée and the Quality Homes Team was amazing! We had a previous experience with Josée when we rented our first place and knew she was the right choice to help us buy our very first home. House-hunting was a lot less stressful than it could have been - we even had quite a few laughs in the process! She was very knowledgeable and resourceful. She was always available to answer any questions or concerns we had, no matter what day or time of day it was! We highly recommend Josée and the Quality Homes Team for anyone who is looking to purchase their next home:)

A big thanks to everyone there for everything done to get us a new home after all the glitches, especially James for all his hard work.
By: M. Wisotzki & L. Johnson
We are extremely grateful to The Quality Homes Team! The team sold what was our dream house and helped us purchase our forever home. Right from the start James and his team were professional...courteous and proceeded with a sense of urgency. The team was 100% committed to selling our house. The marketing through various websites, flyers, and booklets was done tastefully and professionally...they sure know how to get the word out to the various demographics! We would recommend the team to anyone who is serious about selling or buying.

I wish to inform you that my experience with Keller Williams, especially yourself, James and Josée, has been excellent. Your professionalism is remarkable, your service is quick and very friendly. Your documentation is impressive and accurate. You guys were very attentive to requests and your responses were prompt and accurate. I really like the fact that you sent an interior designer to stage the my house before putting on the market. That was a great touch to the showing of the house.

The Quality Homes team recently helped us with the sale of our home. This was our first experience with selling a home and we very much appreciated the expert advice James, Josée and Allison provided throughout this process as well as their patience when answering all of our questions. With their advice, we very quickly sold our home at our targeted price. Thanks again to the entire team!
By: P. & D. Danis
Josée and The Quality Homes Team is by far the most talented Realty team I’ve ever seen. I’ve worked with a pile of creative’ types who are driven by ego and not results. My investment in her words and strategies has resulted in selling my house within 72 hours with multiple offers above asking price as well as allowing us to find the right property at the right price for our family’s needs. On a side note, I would like to personally thank Josée for being so invested in achieving our goals, thank you for your continued prompt response and your attention to details.
By: J. Pommainville & B. Chagnon
We have been extremely pleased with the teams attentiveness, communication, honesty and advice throughout the entire process. Selling a house is a stressful occurrence for anyone, but, The Quality Homes Team helped make it as smooth as possible for us. In fact, we had an accepted offer in less then 30 days; and to add, the team also brought in the buyer, saving us on commission! We feel that the team truly went beyond the general duties of a real estate agent with thorough follow ups and reports. We would be very happy to give The Quality Homes Team our highest recommendation for anyone desiring to sell or buy a property.
I just wanted to take the time to thank James Blaskie and the entire Quality Homes Team for all your hard work in the resent sale of my home! Your team was very prompt in answering all of my questions, very friendly to deal with and assisted me every step of the way. The automated feedback reports from showings were sent right to my email, always keeping me in the loop. It was my first time selling a home and as stressful as I imagined it could be, the Quality Homes Team made it that much easier and got the job done! I would highly recommend you to any one interested in buying or selling their home.
By: D. Corrigan
I was very doubtful about selling the house that I have lived in all my adult life, but my realtor James Blaskie from “The Quality Homes Team of Keller Williams Ottawa Realty” was very patient with me, and extremely helpful with all the aspects of the listing and sale of my home, so were all the other members of the Quality Homes Team that I dealt with. James gave helpful recommendations, guided me through the whole process and seemed always available to answer or return my phone calls. I would definitely recommend him and the Quality Homes Team of Keller Williams Ottawa Realty to a friend.
By: T. King & M. Pellicciotti

Josée and The Quality Homes Team did an exceptional job from start to finish. We really appreciated Josée's patience and willingness to explain each step of the process. She was extremely accessible and worked very hard to get us the best deal possible. She was able to rapidly rent our home and keep the entire process moving, ultimately helping us find a new home and moving ahead of schedule. The free moving truck was a bonus! We would gladly work with Josée and the Quality Homes Team again for future Real Estate needs.
By: N. Lepine
I hired James Blaskie to sell my home. During this time I was out of country 1,700 miles away and felt somewhat disconnected. James kept in touch with me via text, email and phone...which eased the feeling of being disconnected. He has an amazing operation with his assistants helping him to get the job done. He sent me viewing feedback reports weekly which helped me to understand the hurdles we needed to overcome. To conclude I had an accepted offer in less than 2 weeks!!! I would recommend James and his team in representing you in the sale of your home.... I had an awesome experience!
By: P. Delaney
Josée is an experienced Real-Estate agent who can make you feel at ease each step of the way. She was there to answer my questions and support me from renter to homeowner. Her technical expertise and access to resources truly facilitated the process from beginning to end, and her professional and warm character made me feel truly accommodated as a first-time home buyer!
By: B. Bazinet & Y. Viau
Josée and James from the Quality Homes Team were very good! Always reachable via phone or e-mail, courteous service, amazing photographer, they even provide a decor expert so that you can stage your place; great team overall. They really are there for you throughout the entire process. I would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting to sell or buy a property and use them again in a heartbeat!
By: J. Richardson & A. Scheer-Hennings
Josée the Quality Homes Team were an absolute pleasure to work with. After the first consultation appointment, my husband and I immediately knew that Josée was confident and capable with the sale of our home. Our first impression of the team was fantastic. They were most importantly, up to date and informative about the current Real Estate market, diverse and creative with marketing, and overall very efficient. Our questions and concerns were always addressed quickly and honestly making communication with the whole team easy and comfortable. Selling a home is not a transaction most of us do in our day-to-day life. It can be very intimidating, leaving the home owner/seller overwhelmed with the "Unknown" that comes along with Selling. The Quality Homes Team is a very well rounded group of people, who went above and beyond any of our expectations to make the sale of our home a positive and exciting experience. Leaving Real Estate to the professionals at QHT was the best decision and outcome; SOLD in under two weeks! Many thanks to Josée, Jamie, Allison and Phil.

I found that the Quality Homes Team really put 110% into the sale of my home. Josée and James were amazing to work with and I would recommend them without hesitation
By: K. Ritchie
My experience with the Quality Homes Team far exceeded my expectations. Their professionalism and expertise made my transition and home sale a very positive experience. Their advice before, during and after the sale was irreplaceable. Should the need arise again, I would certainly rely on them again.
By: K. McElroy
I couldn't be more happy with my choice in using the Quality Homes Team when it came to Selling and Buying my house. Firstly my house sold in a week and a half- this is the equivalent of accomplishing the impossible. Why? Because I live in a two bedroom home, in the country, and it was almost winter. The Quality Homes Team provides a stager (who totally knows what he's talking about) and a photographer (who takes awesome pictures that make you wonder why you're selling your house in the first place). Their support staff (Ali the amazing) is awesome as well- got a question? She's got an answer. All the paperwork, etc., is explained and processed quickly and thoroughly. Your photos and listing are posted immediately and posted EVERYWHERE. James knows what he's doing when it comes to getting the word out, keeping the word going and then getting you what you want. And did I mention that he has a really BIG sign? Then there's Josée. If you need to go house shopping, she's that person you want to go with. She makes the tedious task of going from house to house pleasant. Not to mention, you won't end up with Buyer's remorse. She's got a sweet face and demeanour but she won't back down from the bargaining table to get you what you want. If you're Buying or Selling a house, go with the Quality Homes Team. You won't regret it.

Now that the deal is closed, I want to tank the three of you for the exceptional service you provided in the sale of our house. I knew from the start that any Realtor taking on the job would have their work cut out for them given the starting point. You all did a great job and the entire family appreciates it.
Josée is always there for her clients with what ever they need, she is always ready with all the right paperwork and is never pushy. If you don't like a house she moves on to the next. Two thumbs up!
By: T. Shortill
Thanks Jamie and the Quality Homes Team for your professionalism in the purchase and selling of my condo. You always seem to have the answer and are able to provide straightforward advice based on your considerable experiences..."I know a guy.."...who can paint, clean the carpets or whatever is needed to get things into shape. It is great that all the paperwork can be completed online to save a tree or 2! Thanks also for your efforts in finding the right tenants who looked after the place like it was their own. I would not hesitate to refer the Quality Homes Team to others.
By: V. Miles & S. Shymanski
Stefan and I have known Josée for years, but only recently did we have the opportunity to do business with her, as we decided to take the plunge and purchase our first home. From the beginning, Josée was very prompt and always ready to help us and answer our questions, no matter what time of day. Even when she was out of town she would put us in touch with a colleague in case we wanted to view a house during her time away. We were looking for a specific type of home, and she remained very patient with us during our 9 month search. After about 15 house viewings, we found THE home and we are very excited! Overall, we had a great experience and would definitely choose and recommend the Quality Homes Team again in the future
By: S. Comeau
The Quality Homes Team knocked another one out of the park!! What a fantastic experience working with them on the sale of my house, the rental of a condo and the purchase of a new build! The team worked quickly and seamlessly to put together a professional listing with stunning photos of a well-staged home. They took the time to get to know the home and used that knowledge, together with familiarity with the neighbourhood and in-depth knowledge of the real estate market, to bring in the right people to view the home. They had it conditionally sold at the asking price within 5 days and firmed up shortly thereafter. Amazing! Start to finish the team was available to answer questions, regularly communicating updates, and instilled such confidence that it really was a zero-stress experience.
By: S. & D. Bedard
A big thank you to Josée and James for their commitment and professionalism with the sale of our property, especially for their patience with us. It was such a pleasure working with Josée and James who had all the answers to our Real Estate questions. I highly recommend them and their support team to anyone who needs a truly quality agent and support team. They made it all so easy and painless. Thumbs up to the Quality Homes Team!
By: M. & A. Wallace
Working with the Quality Homes Team was excellent. Their planning for the sale was very professional, but I was more impressed with their support after we had a conditional sale. In our case an overzealous home inspector raised several unfounded concerns with out home. James and his team negotiated with the buyers to develop a reasonable approach to resolve the concerns without excessive cost. For the few items where work was required, they connected me with respectable contractors who got the job done on time and at a fair price. We are grateful!
By: A. & L. Nicolaides
Jamie has been an amazing resource for us from the beginning! He gave us feedback on what is going on in our market, he has been very flexible with timings and availability when we requested to visit properties and he answered all of our questions and concerns quickly. Most importantly to us, he always gave us his honest view which helped us in making informative decisions. We would gladly work with Jamie again and highly recommend him to anyone looking for an amazing agent.
By: Ann Smith
Hi, just a note to say thanks for all you have done for us throughout this process. As first time buyers, we had a lot of unanswered questions regarding the purchase of our home. Thank you for providing the answers to many of these and giving us informed advice on the homes that we visited!
