My goal is to make the process of buying, selling, or owning a home efficient, enjoyable and rewarding for you.  See what my clients have said about my real estate services...


I first met Richard during my house hunting trip(HHT) in January 2009; I retained Richard as my realtor after being referred by a friend. I can say with certainty I was unprepared for that HHT, especially considering I was moving to the Ottawa area from Calgary, and was looking for a house in January, a poor time to be trying to find a residence. Despite my lack of research and preparation, Richard was very prepared for us. Without delving into all the details, there is little doubt he was a big reason the HHT was successful. He always provided us with honesty and with details on each residence and on the area; he was very patient and was a great sitter for my two daughters as my wife and I viewed each house, ect.
As such, there was little surprise that, once it came time to sell and prepare for another transfer, I immediately called Richard and retained his services again. Richard arranged to meet at my house and provided a very frank, honest assessment of what needed to be done and, conversely, what shouldn't be done. I appreciated his expertise and his straight-forward manner. We then discussed in detail several topics regarding the sale; he displayed his experience and honesty with each of his responses.
We had some ups and downs with the sale of our house including the first accepted offer falling through at the eleventh hour when the buyer's financing collapsed - but despite same, Richard was always available to discuss the issues, listen to my ranting and provided options and advice. Within a few days of the collapse of the first offer, we had competing offers on the house. Richard navigated the waters like a old marine captain; he managed to broker a deal which resulted in the conditions we wanted, the irrevocable time we wanted, the conditional expiration we wanted, and the closing date we wanted. He did not manage to get the amount of money we wanted for our house, but instead netted an amount in excess of our asking price. Honestly, could you hask for any better than that?
I am a very focused person, I work my tail off for whatever I set my sights upon...I am always prepared to go well beyond the extra miles needed. I demand a lot of myself and I demand the same from others around me...unfortunately, most people tend to disappoint me as they don't manage to live up to my expectations regarding focus and work ethic.
Perhaps, then, the best compliment I can give is this: Richard is one of the few people who has managed to meet, and perhaps even exceed the high expectations I have set.
On behalf of my family, let it be known that it was been our pleasure to work with Richard and have him working for us.  L.J. (Larry) Peyton

Par la présente, j'aimerais remercier Richard Chartier pour tout ce qu'il a fait pour nous lors de la vente du condo de notre mère. Ça fait maintenant deux fois qu'il nous représente dans la vente d'immeubles et les deux fois le résultat a été le même: une vente rapide et avantageuse.  M. Chartier travaille de façon efficace, professionnelle, ponctuelle et nous fait sentir comme si nous sommes ses seuls clients.  Le feedback lors de visites étaient rapides et appropriées.  Il a sû bien nous conseiller afin qu'on puisse vendre le plus rapidement possible.  Il a été aussi très attentionné envers ma mère, prenant le temps d'expliquer et de réexpliquer les choses.Lorsque j'ai la chance je recommande  et je continuerai à recommander Richard Chartier comme courtier. Danielle Yelle
