How would I sum up my home buying experience with John Spagnoli? Fantastic, stress-free, and exciting.
My fiancee and I had the pleasure to work with John on the purchase of our first home, and as first-time home buyers, the experience is usually stressful, but not with John. He is thorough, informative, and identifies numerous things you may not think about when buying a home.
But, nothing compares to his fair and honest feedback, particularly with bidding. Given Ottawa’s hot bidding market, this is a characteristic you should not overlook in a realtor, and John’s experience in the tough world of negotiation is paramount to finding that perfect home at a fair price. If we had to start the home buying process over, I’d go with John Spagnoli without hesitation.
I just wanted to drop a little note to thank you for your excellent services you have provided from beginning to end. John, you were very professional and knowledgeable of the market. It showed that you had prepared well and that a lot of research had been done. From the beginning, I had told you that our house was a bit of a challenge with its angles and unusual settings but you went right ahead and understood that. As I said before, you were very patient either in explaining to the potential buyers the value of our home and also very patient and reassuring with our own impatience even when I vented my frustration! I am very grateful for that.
Where we were the most impressed was when time came to negotiate the offer we had received. We felt that you had our best interest at heart and it showed in the end results. All the little extras like the blown-up summer pictures of the backyard to show its full potential in the middle of March, your availability for the numerous amount of time you came to turn on the light on because we were not there for a showing were well appreciated.
All and all a fantastic service that we would recommend to friends and family. It has been a real pleasure dealing with you, Jane and anyone in your office.
Marjolaine and Phil Wilson
“We would like to thank you and your team for the great work in selling our house. You arrived for our first meeting with your research in hand regarding homes like ours that had recently sold and those now on the market. With these comparables we were able to make an informed decision about setting our selling price. You and Jane Pick quickly responded to all of our questions, always professional, always pleasant. We appreciated all of your advice in the sales process from getting it ready for market until signing on the dotted line. We are very happy to recommend you and your team to any home buyer or seller”.
Randy and Geraldine Dudding
“John and his team were a huge asset in successfully selling our home. Their extensive knowledge and experience in the Kanata market meant that we were able to sell our house quickly and for a great price. We were impressed right from our first meeting with John all the way through to closing. He was available any time we called, very responsive, and provided sound guidance during the negotiations. We will be recommending John to any family and friends in the Kanata and Stittsville areas”.
Kaetlynd and Brad
“Just wanted to say how happy and impressed we were with the service we received. The professional and efficient manner in which you helped us sell our home made us feel we had made the right choice when we chose your team.
Everyone from the stager, to the photographer, were very professional and a pleasure to work with. The way you handled all of our questions and or concerns, had us feeling we were set up for success right from the beginning and that continued right to the successful sale of our home.
After the sale of our home, you ensured we didn’t remain homeless for long. Within a week, we had finalized on another wonderful home. Exactly what and where we were hoping to be. It all went so smoothly, it was like living in a dream.
We would highly recommend your team to anyone looking for a reliable hard working pair. Jane was instrumental in keeping the lines of communication open, running efficiently and smoothly. She was incredibly informative and supportive. There was no question to small or need not met.
We can’t thank you both enough for all that you did for us!”
Kathy and Al Belanger
“Working with John to purchase our home has truly been a phenomenal experience. Moving to Ottawa from Toronto, we really had no idea what to expect in the Ottawa housing market. John was responsive, incredibly knowledgeable and worked around our schedule to accommodate a whirlwind weekend of showings allowing us to feel comfortable and confident in our home purchase. He crafted a unique offer to suit our particular situation and leveraged his relationships within the Ottawa real estate community to ensure our goals were met.
We are so excited to move to Ottawa now that we’ve purchased a wonderful home and would not hesitate to recommend John to anyone looking to buy or sell a property – we will absolutely look forward to working with John again in the future and are so grateful for his experience and attention to detail”.

Tina and James Armstrong
“Good, Prompt, Reliable Service”
“My experience with John as an agent listing my property was excellent. John had a professional stager advise me on how best to show my home and John’s photographer took photos that ensured its best features were in prime view online. This guaranteed lots of foot traffic and a very quick sale. John and his assistant were very responsive to any issues that had to be dealt with throughout the process. All of these initiatives resulted in my home selling within one week at a price I was very happy with. At the same time, John went above and beyond to help my fiance and I find the homes of our dreams. I am very grateful and would highly recommend you to any future seller or buyer. What a Team!
“I wish to thank both you and your team for your efforts in the sale of my house, in such an expeditious manner. I was impressed with your professionalism and that of your team. Your knowledge of the market and judgement in timing as to when to place the property for sale was invaluable. The stager’s recommendations were top notch and the photos taken of my house awesome, both of which created the right atmosphere and image resulting in the sale within two days of listing. Outstanding! The brochure on my property showed my home beautifully. The whole process was very smooth and I would highly recommend your services to any prospective seller.”
“It was a pleasure working with both Jane and John, and would definitely refer John on if we have anyone looking to buy or sell.”
Brian and Jane
“We were very pleased with John Spagnoli’s handling of the sale of our property. His presentation, photo’s and attentiveness were excellent. We always felt comfortable with both John and Jane who responded to our questions and concerns. We would certainly not hesitate to recommend their services.”
Doug and Miriam
“Selling our home with Jane and John Spagnoli was an easy choice. They worked with us to prepare out home to exceptional standards and we sold the home in 3 days! We have always recommended their services to friends and family, and everyone is beyond pleased to work with their team in the search and sale of their homes.”
Renee and Yevgene
“Many thanks to you and Jane for getting us here! We could never of achieved this without your advice, the professional team surrounding you and your expertise. Thanks also for your patience dealing with our inexperience in this area. I enjoyed doing business with you and I guarantee I will be recommending you to anyone looking for a real estate agent”.
Stefan and Anna
“Thank you John and Jane for your assistance in both the purchase of our new home and the selling of our existing home. Your knowledge of the real estate field and advice offered was valuable to us. After making offers on some other homes that suited our needs, and not closing the deals on any of them, we were finally able to find a home that we truly desired. Purchasing a home prior to selling your existing one is a potentially frightening situation. The advice offered on staging our home ensured that it sold quickly. I would not hesitate to recommend your services to others”.
“Finding the right representative to sell your home is essential. Finding one you can trust is worth every penny! We met with a few agents and selected John because he was straight forward with setting expectations, and responding to our questions. His experience in Stittsville was an advantage. He kept the communication open at all times and provided valuable feedback. His recommendations were not always lower the price, but what can be done to meet our price. I am pleased we have chosen John and he sold our home within 6 weeks of it being on the market. We would recommend him and would hire his services again”.
Linda and Kevin
“With your help John, we were able to purchase the home we’ve have been looking for many years. We appreciate the fact that you approached the other Realtor involved and convinced her to allow her clients to accept our offer with the condition of selling our current home. We were nervous with the entire process at first but you quickly made us feel comfortable with your honesty and excellent recommendations. We are also impressed that you were always on time at our scheduled meetings and kept us informed along the way with any new developments. In addition, we really liked having Jane as your “back-up”. She is truly a wonderful, knowledgeable and professional Realtor. You are lucky to have her on your team!! Thank you Jane. We truly appreciate your professional approach and dedication in working with us in order to sell our home in record time – 18 hours!!! Rest assured that we will continue to highly recommend the “John Spagnoli Royal Lepage Team Realty” to all our friends and people that we know that are looking or thinking of selling and buying. Glad to see your “SOLD” sign popping up on other homes in the neighbourhood. Excellent Work!”
Claude and Bonnie
“I could not be more pleased with the professionalism and courtesy you displayed during the sale of my home. Communication was excellent, suggestions and feedback was very much appreciated. The traffic and number of showings in a short time was impressive and you obviously are plugged into clientele. Thank you so much.”
“We want to thank you so much for the professional and courteous way you handled the selling of our house. We had it listed with your competitor for over 5 months with little interest and no offers. Then we called you and the house was set at a proper price, your team of professionals guided us for some effective staging. The photographer captured our house as it was meant to be and within a few weeks, it was sold. We highly recommend John and his team to sell your home. Thank you again so much”.
Tom and Heather

John and Donna
“John, I was/am very impressed with the professional manner in which my house was presented & marketed. We really did not expect it to sell as quickly as it did and right before Christmas. Bonnie and I will not hesitate to recommend you if given the opportunity.”
“Hi John, its a pleasure to write this letter to thank you for all your hard work in selling us the house. You found the way to deal with my emotions and your honesty and professionalism made me trust you. My husband and I would like to personally thank you for a job well done.

Alla & Samer
“Thank you so much John for the quick sale of our home! Having Nona (designer) come in initially was great! She was awesome! Joanne was very nice to work with. So informative & supportive! Awesome, Thanks again.”
K & M Robbs
” This is the second time John has sold a house for us in under one week-from photo shoot to SOLD sign! John and his team take the stress out of the selling process. We just get results. Many thanks again John”.
S & H Adams
” First of all… Thank you so much for all the work you did on our behalf. We really appreciated how down to earth and real you are. Very refreshing to say the least. We had every confidence in you and your team and as a result are very pleased with the quick result of our home sale. I have already referred you to some people and will continue. Don’t change a thing!! Keep up the good work and again thank you so much”.
L & J Prezeau
” I was very pleased with the selling of my condo as it was a hard unit to sell due to location and the over inflated builder’s price. I was happy with both John and Joanne dealing with not just the business of the sale but also my personal problems associated with the sale. Again thanks very much and be sure I will recommend you both to future sales of any of my acquaintances”.
“From the moment we interviewed John for a potential listing to the moment we sold, the Spagnoli team was fantastic to work with. Even though John has several listing in the Ottawa area he made us feel like we were his only clients. Both John and Joanne responded to any questions or concerns we had in a prompt and professional manner. There is no doubt that we made the right choice for listing our home in Stittsville.”
J & C, Stittsville Resident
“John was recommended to me by a work colleague and it proved to be some of the best advise I ever received. Prior to this, our house had been listed with another real estate firm for 4 very long months. Lots of interest-no offers. We were very disheartened. With John’s professional approach and years of experience he guided us in making a few minor adjustments with the result of an offer in 2 weeks. John and Joanne are knowledgeable real estate professionals who possess superior interpersonal skills. These skills are invaluable to the frazzled seller on the roller coaster of trying to sell their house. I can only say you will not be disappointed if you choose to list with John Spagnoli.”
Heather & Klaus L
” John is the Gold standard for agents. When you hire him he takes personal interest in your satisfaction. Many agents acquire your listing then move on. John Spagnoli sells your house! He stands out because of his professionalism and personal service. He cares about what is important to you. He knows how to position your home in the market. We would never use anyone else again. John Spagnoli=Results 100% ”
Sandra and Mike P
Dear John and Joanne…..”Thank you so much for helping us find out home. Being novice and out-of-towners, your patience and graciousness was appreciated. We are LOVING our house and slowly making it our own. We just wanted to share with you that finding the right place has made such an impact on having to uproot our family.”
The Watters Family
“Excellent hands on work, trustworthy-always available to answer questions-both John and Joanne are great people persons-very professional and honest-make the stressful experience less so-puts control of open houses & showings in clients hands-does whatever is necessary to make clients comfortable with the process-if we ever sell our next house, it will be with John.”
Rick & Terry
“When it came time to sell my home, I was so pleased to have the opportunity to work with John Spagnoli who is well known in Stittsville. His knowledge of my neighbourhood and detailed plans for selling my home were so professional & trustworthy. The use of photography & home staging was exceptional. John and Joanne helped me through the whole process, being so positive and confident and always kept me informed of the negotiations. My home sold in 2 weeks. I would highly recommend John & his team when selling your home.”
“We had identified John as the most prominent real estate agent in Stittsville when we first moved into our neighborhood. We had heard flattering comments from a neighbour who had put her home on Sell-by-owner websites and it didn’t sell for months. When her deadline was approaching without concrete results, she contacted John who sold her home in record time for more than they had originally listed it. John gave us extremely valuable advice and the professionals to contact to turn our builder’s white home into a warm, welcoming and professionally staged home. John, my whole family is very grateful for the excellent job you did at reducing the inconvenience of a home sale by selling our home in record time”
“From our first discussion with John, we were most impressed with his marketing knowledge; analysis of area properties and detailed plan for the sale of our home. The plan resulted in maximum exposure of the property to potential buyers through the use of professional home staging, photography and advertising. The outcome was positive feedback from the visitors and the sale of the property within a short time and at an acceptable price.
It was a distinct pleasure to work with John and Joanne in the sale of our home. Their team approach made for a smooth and worry free sale. One can be assured that this team will work hard to ensure that you receive the highest price for your property and that they will keep you fully informed at the progress and negotiations.”
Best regards, Annett and Rob
