Selling your home? I know Ottawa inside out
Are you thinking about selling your home or investment property? I have been advising home sellers in Ottawa for over 30 years – there is always an opportune time, price and approach to get you maximum value. I see it as my job to guide you through this, the paperwork, negotiations and sale with the finesse of a trusted expert.
Finding your buyer
What motivates buyers varies greatly; thorough research and my extensive experience ensures we showcase your home to make it stand out. Neighbourhoods change over time, I’ll make sure your home is ready for the target buyer whether they are a new family, a growing family or those looking to downsize and simplify their arrangements.
Home evaluation is complex – I work with my sellers to determine their ideal price, what the market will accept, timelines and other factors. A home evaluation is a great time for us to meet and discuss the selling process and marketplace. Pricing your home to be competitive depends on many factors; the time of year, what else is on the market, the economy, local developments, nearby amenities and more.
Marketing your home
I prepare a detailed marketing plan for my sellers including a combination of virtual tours, staging consultation, online and print information and marketing to my extensive network to ensure their property gets the attention and offer it deserves.

“Our family has worked with Roe for 15 years. Collectively we have bought 5 houses with her. I bought my first home with Roe's help. As a first time home buyer I had a lot of questions. She was patient, informative and result focused. I can't recommend her highly enough. I have since moved away from Ottawa but I still rely on Roe to give me invaluable advice regarding the real estate market. I am still searching for a real estate agent in my new city in whom I have the same level of trust and confidence that Roe inspires in her clients. Clients in Ottawa are lucky to have her!.”

“Roe is the best! She helped us find exactly the right house in the warmest and most caring way. She went well above and beyond what we expected and proved to be a person of extreme integrity. She has also helped several of our friends find dream homes when faced with challenging circumstances. Years, later, she is still there for us whenever we have home related needs. We love and trust Roe a lot.”
“As a single mom and working professional I found Roe to be an excellent real estate agent and a good sounding board to help me make such a big and important financial decision on my own. She never made me feel like I was putting her out looking at homes that were just possibilities and in fact encouraged me to look at as many homes as I needed to to get a feel for what was out there. She advised me on my winning bid and as a result I am a very happy home owner in a wonderful neighbourhood.”
“Thank you to Roe for making the sale of our home effortless and enjoyable. Roe made us feel confident about our decisions all the way through the process. Because of her guidance and understanding nature she will always be the one we will call!”
“Roe made selling my old house and buying my new one seem so easy and actually fun and exciting! I knew I wanted to down-size to a condo, and had some idea of what I wanted, but really wasn’t sure what was out there. Roe took the time to help me understand what the possibilities were. She has incredible knowledge of the different areas and developments in the city, and was able to answer my many questions that helped me decide what made sense for me. When I was finally ready to sell, I knew I would be in good hands. Roe’s advice and assistance throughout the selling process were invaluable, with much better than expected results! and I am now happily settled in my new place. I truly enjoyed working with Roe and can highly recommend her services.”

“We first met Roe Saikaley in June 2000 while searching for an investment property in Sandy Hill. After a few days of house hunting, Roe was able to identify the house we liked and then match us with a very similar house at a lower price. She is a great negotiator because she understands the Ottawa housing market. This knowledge helped us to offer the right price to close the deal quickly and within our price range. After this sale, we have dealt exclusively with Roe. She has helped us sell 2 houses and purchase another. With each of these transactions, Roe’s advise was invaluable to help close our deal quickly whether it was to replace carpeting; do some painting; or adjust the price. We have recommended Roe Saikaley to friends and relatives.”
“Roe is highly skilled and works very hard for her clients. We had tight timelines and the house we were selling presented difficulties. It required remediation and Roe found contractors who handled the job splendidly at short notice. Roe was also able to find a suitable buyer within our timelines despite the difficulties. I have recommended her to friends and would do so again, unreservedly.”
