“We were looking for something very specific in a home and our search went on and off for almost three years. Each time we decided to ramp up the search again, Lena Maione was there for us, eager and happy to help.
A couple of times we were so tired and disillusioned with the search that we were going to settle for something that was far from our dream. But Lena had taken the time to get to know us and she knew what we wanted in a home. She steered us back in the right direction and told us that the right house would come along. We are so thankful for her knowledge, expertise and patience. Without her re-directing us, we would have made a less-than-stellar decision and missed out on the beautiful place we now call home.
Once our offer was accepted, there were some bumps in the road upon inspection, but Lena tool them all in stride and handled them like the consummate professional that she is.
Lena is a kind, genuine and understanding person who recognized that we were not just buying a house, we were searching for our home. Lena is also fantastic with children – our kids still talk about her. Our dog loved her too!
We highly recommend Lena to anyone looking for a real estate agent in the Ottawa area.
If we were to ever sell our home (highly unlikely), I wouldn’t work with anyone but Lena. On a personal level, she won our hearts. On a professional level, she can’t be beaten!”
“Outgrowing your starter home is a very difficult situation that everyone eventually faces and it was no different for my wife and I.
What is our house worth? What can we do to be sure it shows well? What do we want in our next house? Where should we look?
Knowing very little going into this process was quite stressful for us, so it was a breath of fresh air meeting with Lena. We quickly came to appreciate her knowledgeable advise on staging, mortgages, lawyers and the overall process. Giving us sorely needed peace of mind and confidence.
Lena not only took the time to understand our family and our needs, but also how to maximize the value of our only asset, and offered very smart advice on delaying our listing to generate serious interest – which turned out very well for us.
As other agents lined up with their clients on the street to make offers, Lena calmly discussed each offer with us and never rushed us, making sure we understood every option available to us. Her strategy was brilliant and really paid off for us – insight that I don’t think you’d get from every realtor.
Throughout all this we were also hunting for a new home and Lena once again demonstrated her expertise by finding us the perfect home, in the perfect neighborhood. She took the time to understand the selling conditions, giving us an advantage during the negotiations and we again moved forward with absolute confidence in our decision.
We can’t say enough good things about Lena, and recommend her at every opportunity.”
“A few days have past since securing my home and have had an opportunity to appreciate even more how lucky I am at how well this process has all turned out. To say that I am content would be well understating things. Ecstatic begins to move in the right direction, but only begins. But very content is also a good description in this case, and will be a long-lasting feeling as well.
I did not have an easy set of requirements given my personal and family situation and have more than once been accused of having champagne taste on a beer budget, but Lena found the champagne for sure and if not on a beer budget, at least on a decent wine budget (oh, and the wine cellar will work great up against those refinished foundation stones!).
Than you Lena for all your effort, your patience and good humour. They were all very much appreciated.”
“Many thanks to Lena Maione, for her pivotal role in the purchase of our new home!
When we first met Lena she said she loved working with first time home buyers and as first time home buyers, we loved working with Lena.
Even though her portfolio includes many big budget homes, she never made us feel that our budget or needs were too small; quite the opposite!
She is full of knowledge and sound advise. We are not planning on moving anytime soon but when we do, we are planning on calling Lena again. She was recommended to us by a friend and now we recommend her to everyone!”
Thanks again Lena, you are great at your job!”
“Lena Maione did an amazing job. I felt listened to and respected throughout this difficult process and I was as relaxed as possible. I attribute the quick sale and the high price to her hard work and skill. Thank you Lena!”
“Lena, we just wanted to show our appreciation for everything you have done for us over the past month! You are a fantastic realtor and we really appreciate you. Thank you again.”
“My wife and I have had a great experience dealing with Lena Maione while selling our home. She conducted herself with the utmost professionalism and marketed our home very well, resulting in multiple offers.
She has a lot of experience and when we had questions or concerns they were addressed immediately and accurately. We felt our home was appropriately priced under her direction.
She said our home would sell quickly and it did. Lena is a quality person that you can trust. We are thankful for the great job she did.”
“Thank you Lena for helping us find a place to hang our hats. We really appreciated you taking us through the process.
Having you along for the ride and in our corner made us feel more secure and at ease. We highly recommend Lena Maione.”
“We were extremely please with the no nonsense approach developed by Lena Maione in delivering a comprehensive plan to market our house in Alta Vista.
Her professional approach was refreshing, making her easy to negotiate during the selling process.
All of the printed material produces for us by Faulkner Real Estate was top quality, informative and accurate.
We would definitely recommend Lena and Faulkner Real Estate in the selling or buying of a house.”
