Teresa was our real estate agent during our move to Ottawa from Saskatchewan. Due to the pandemic, she did video call home tours. No place was off limits or too far for her to drive to. She described the smell of the homes as well as pointed out good and bad features of the homes. When we were able to finally house hunt in person, she arranged a day of home tours. The night before our day of home tours, I saw a home that I loved. I texted the listing to Teresa and despite it being after work hours, she was able to get us into that home the next morning. Once we knew that this home was the one, Teresa got our offer drawn up, signed and sent to the sellers’ realtor. She advised us on the process and home prices. She was able to get our offer accepted before others got to see the home, avoiding a bidding war. Before this I was crying, thinking that we would never find a home that I liked. Teresa remained positive that we would find our home. Military moves are always stressful and buying a home during a pandemic and in a very hot housing market with little inventory added another level of stress, but Teresa was an enormous help. Teresa is a military spouse and understands the benefits, entitlements and process of a military move. She arranged for a home inspector who did a very thorough job. She also connected us with a lawyer. Both the home inspector and lawyer were familiar with military moves which made everything so much easier and stress free. All of these things greatly reduced our stress level since we are on the other side of the country and did not know who to use.
I will be forever grateful for Teresa for getting us into our dream home.
I just want to say thank you for helping me sell my house.You made me feel that my home was a castle, my business was invaluable and no ask was a burden! And you did it with energy, humour, respect and kindness! You really put in your all to get the job done! Simply awesome, above and beyond! Thank you.

Theresa is a exceptional! Everyone should search her out!
We were first introduced to her by a friend of whom is RCPM, and their family was being moved to Ottawa. Since we were also relocating due to a military posting, our family took their advice to tenaciously attain her as our realtor as well.
Right from the beginnings we felt very comfortable with her services and could recognize her sensibilities as a realtor. Shes very familiar with the buying process, has an eye for detail, with different fit and finish as well as function of what a home means for the patron, is very familiar and proud of her city and is EXTREMELY committed to her job and to us. She made us feel like while we were in her care, we were her primary focus. She was hardly ever distracted by other probable clients and made us feel like we were the only ones that mattered. All the while, professionally dealing with all the other sales that she had on her plate in a very respectable and tasteful manner.
We weren’t having much luck our first 2 days and were so discouraged. Come the 3rd day we were feeling defeated. Little did we know, that while we were in a panic and having a pitty party, she was busy burning the midnight oil to find us a home with the aspects we were looking for. On the final day she presented us with an option for a house we weren’t considering initially but in the end, turned out to be THE ONE!
I appreciate the fact that she can listen to our needs very attentively yet has no issues with thinking outside of the box to find options based on our likes and dislikes.
We chose the house in a matter of minutes.
Once the offer was accepted we were not surprised to know that the lawyers appointments we already set in place prior to us moving up from Halifax. She made the paperwork a seamless transition.
On the last day of our house shopping when she picked us up (as she ALWAYS did. We never had to meet her anywhere! Front door service all the way), there was fresh homemade from scratch warm banana muffins waiting to greet us and later that afternoon we all went out for a celebratory lunch!!
Even once the house was sold, she didn’t move on like we were just a paycheck. Oh no! We had a slight issue with part of our contract for an appliance. She wouldn’t take no for an answer and the issue was resolved in a flash!
Not only is she our realtor, but I’m very proud to say that she is now also a friend. We’ve been invited with welcome arms and great hospitality any time we visit her. She’s a terrific woman, who genuinely has a big heart to help not only her customers but society in general and is always giving back to the community. She’s a force to be reckoned with and someone who deserves our respect in turn. A million times yes, I would refer her to everyone and anyone. You will be please you did.
I don’t normally write testimonials but she is worth taking the time to write each word, as she has always put us first.
Teresa has been my agent for more than 10 years. She is the best in the field and for good reason. She truly takes time to understand the needs of her clients and will do everything humanely positive to sell your home. Teresa has an amazing talent to prepare your home for showings and provides great advice, shows you properties that will appeal to you and your lifestyle. Teresa is a wonderful and compassionate person who has your interests at heart and will work to get you what you want in a home. To top that, she has a great sense of humour!
My partner and I were referred to Teresa by a friend and we are so happy to have met her. We were looking to buy our first house together but were unsure of the process to buying a house and even the finer details of what to look for when selecting a house. Teresa helped us go through many open houses and remained very transparent and truthful about the houses we had shown interest in. She respected what we were looking for in a house and made sure that we would find a house that would suit our needs and our expectations and she never made us feel like we were being pushed to buy. We found a house that was great for us and she was a great help in the buying process. She was very prompt in answering all of our questions and made the process as smooth as possible.
Teresa had helped me sell my condo as well. Again, she helped make this process as smooth as can be. She was able to sell my condo extremely quick at a price above my expectation. I also felt protected as she was working with the purchaser's agent to create a fair agreement between myself and the purchaser.
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Teresa. She is so knowledgeable about the industry and has your best interest in mind!

Teresa is a consumate professional. Her dedication to the highest quality customer service translates beyond her job as a realtor, and into her passion for women’s issues at an international level.

Her leadership, expertise, and genuine care for others make her stand out as a mentor to me professionally and personally.
You helped make it happen! It is the perfect home! I now can’t wait for our eventual move back to Ottawa and to start living in our new home. Again, kudos to you for helping us through all the stress, keeping us sane and helping us secure our dream home.
I want to send a big Thank you out to Teresa Whitmore for making the process of selling my house as stress-free as possible. Not only did she sell my house ( in less than 2 weeks with multiple offers) but she also shared her resources at a moments notice. That is what I call “Great Customer Service”.

With professionalism, dedication, good humour, and the patience of a saint, Teresa helped us find and buy our first house in Ottawa. Her after care has also been fantastic. She was able to recommed “a guy” for everything which made our lives in theaftermath of the house purchase so much easier: house inspector, lawyer, electrician, insurance advisor, movers. Very helpful if you are new in town. And she has become a great friend into the bargain. We heartily recommend Teresa as a real estate agent and as a wonderful person.
Amanda Keene, Re/max Quinte Ltd
Teresa is a dedicated real estate agent with a tremendous amount of experience and knowledge of the real estate market. As a colleague, she is professional and hard working… a pleasure to work with.
Teresa is a wonderful agent. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to buy a house. She is reliable and honest, and is a caring person who find the exact house for you.
I had the pleasure of having Teresa Whitmore as my real estate agent as I was selling my property in Ottawa. Being a member of the Canadian Military I have moved every two years for the past twelve. Out of all the real estate agents i've worked with Teresa is by far the most knowledgable and well connected agent of them all. in addition to her abilities as a real estate agent, I cannot count the number of times she went above and beyond her duties to help me with the sale of my property. One such example was I had to leave early for my next posting, so Teresa supervised the pack and load of my place and insured the place was clean for the new resident. It would have required me to take time away from my studies had Teresa not helped me. These among other examples have extended our relationship from agent-client to friends. I would recommend Teresa to anyone who is buying or selling in the Ottawa area.
Teresa recently aided our family with the sale of our home. Not only does she efficiently return phone calls and emails, she arrives on time for appointments and deals honestly! In this day and age these things are valued. I must say, Teresa continually impressed us all with her care and concern for our family. Knowing my father is a senior, she checked in on him and even brought him home-made treats and meals! I've been sharing that level of care with my friends and they, too, have been most impressed. Teresa is hard working and honest. She is straightforward and to the point, which I also appreciate. I would recommend Teresa to any of my family, friends and or co-workers.
Thank you, Teresa. You really do excel going above and beyond! We appreciate all you have done!
