Before pursuing his passion for real estate, Ron had an established career in the financial service industry. He attributes his long standing success to relationship building and a non-pressure approach that is delivered with honesty, respect and integrity.
With years of experience in home renovation and design, clients appreciate Ron’s ability to quickly see the true potential in a property. He currently resides in the Civic Hospital area, where he has lovingly restored an older character home. He’s an active member of his local neighbourhood association, staying engaged and informed about the challenges and complexities facing homeowners living in an urban environment.
“Ron is a superb, professional and charming agent! He was highly recommended by several neighbourhood friends when we began to consider selling our family home of 45 years. He helped us to buy our condominium and to sell our house for an excellent price, leading us through the whole process calmly and knowledgeably, one step at a time. We can’t imagine having done it without him! He makes good recommendations, but does not pressure you, and will work with any decision you choose. Always available and helpful when you need him, Ron has a good perspective on the market and is strategic in his approach. His advice about pricing and timing was spot-on. He is also very hands-on, has an artistic eye, and staged our house himself, using our own possessions. Ron is a consummate professional with a personal touch and a great sense of humour! We have no hesitation whatsoever in highly recommending him to anyone considering selling or buying a property.”
“I was so grateful to work with Ron in the sale of my home. His in-depth knowledge of the real estate market, his wise advice, his ongoing communication, and the personal and effective attention he gave to every issue, big and small, inspired my trust and confidence. Moreover, all of this professionalism led to a result beyond my expectations! In short, I would highly recommend Ron’s services. You will not be disappointed!”
“We recently moved to Ottawa from overseas with little knowledge of the housing market in Ottawa. We could not have asked for a better agent than Ron. He is a gentleman through and through, putting all his experience and diligence to task. He took it upon himself to drive us around several neighbourhoods in Ottawa. As we drove from one neighbourhood to another, he carefully explained the pros and cons of each area, taking into consideration a multitude of factors including, our family situation, our commute to work, the quality and proximity of the schools, access to highways and public transit, street noise, potential for appreciation, and our willingness for doing major renovation work.
Ron’s no-pressure approach was exemplary. After the initial tour, we were quite specific about the neighbourhoods and types of properties we would consider. Ron suggested only those properties that would suit our needs and provided a balanced opinion. We bought our home in a sellers’ market with low inventory in the neighbourhood we were interested in. We never felt the slightest hint of pressure from Ron. All we got from him was sound, neutral and professional advice. Ron was instrumental in sealing the deal on our purchase at a good price, and protected our interests as buyers with utmost integrity. In short, Ron is exceptionally well-versed and seasoned in his trade. If we ever need to buy or sell property in Ottawa again, we know right away who to go to.”
“We were first-time homebuyers jumping into a competitive downtown housing market in summer 2020. Ron came highly recommended by my parents; as their buying and selling agent, he guided them through their move from the suburbs to downtown. From our first meeting Ron put us at ease, taking us to different Ottawa neighbourhoods that suited what we were looking for as a young family. Ron brought us up to speed with the market right away, and helped us to navigate the whole process from start to closing. Now, months later, we are loving our new home and neighbourhood, and Ron continues to help us with renovation and design ideas and recommendations.
Ron cares about finding his clients a home that meets their initial expectations but also helps them envision how a home may (or may not) grow with them. Ron is frank, patient and knowledgeable. We found Ron to be a helpful and trustworthy resource and advisor. As well, working with Ron was fun, as he kept a positive outlook and sense of humour throughout the process.”
“We would like to wholeheartedly recommend Ron to whoever is looking for a new place to live in Ottawa. We met Ron virtually in July 2020 for a house we were interested in. We instantly felt that Ron was the right person to help us in our quest for a new place. Ron has extensive experience as a real estate agent, he is highly knowledgeable about the Ottawa market, he is super kind and always ready to share some well thought through advice. He put us in contact with a lawyer, contractor, mortgage broker etc; he was also available to answer our numerous questions and shared with us very useful tips. We want to thank Ron for his help, availability and kindness throughout the process.”
“Ron demonstrated many valuable qualities as our real estate agent in 2019-20. He was instrumental in helping us navigate the selling of our family home in the suburbs and the purchasing of our new home in Centertown, a challenging endeavour during Covid times! We really appreciated his input and efforts in preparing our home for viewings. Ron was consistently upbeat, respectful and professional, and we always felt extremely well represented by his knowledge of the housing market and his expertise as a realtor. Our trust and confidence in Ron has led us to recommend him several times to friends and family.”
“One of the best decisions we made when considering to sell our house was to ask Ron to be our real estate agent. Working with him was a real pleasure. His thoughtful and creative approach made the whole sales process stress-free and actually quite enjoyable. Ron proved to be a good listener, sensitive to the thoughts and wishes of us, his clients. His keen sense of marketing, and his persuasive skills in explaining today’s realities of Ottawa’s real estate market to our buyer, proved to be highly effective. It resulted in a sale that was a “win-win” for both parties. We have since recommended Ron to some of our friends, who were equally pleased with his services.”
“We chose Ron as our agent when we bought our first home in 2014, and again when we sold it in 2020. We were extremely impressed with him both times. When we bought, he took the time to draw out exactly what we were looking for and provide tailored suggestions. It was clearly important to him to find us the right property rather than simply make a sale. We were very happy with our first home.
In 2020, we had moved out of province and decided to sell. Ron is very adept at understanding the motivations of buyers and sellers. His work resulted in multiple offers, even during the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak. Ron provided creative, professional, caring solutions to ensure open houses and showings were done in a way that kept the tenants safe and made them feel comfortable in a rapidly evolving situation. He also worked with the tenants to find them a new place to rent. We highly recommend Ron to anyone looking to buy or sell.”
“All I can say is, ‘WOW! Ron recently assisted me with purchasing and selling my first flip. He held my hand from start-to-finish throughout the renovation phase and was frequently on site with his expansive knowledge in all areas of real estate: buying, selling, renovating, design, landscaping and staging. You would be hard pressed to find another agent who would literally be on their hands and knees before an open house laying down brick and landscaping so that the house would show better. In less than a week a healthy above-ask sale was achieved. Ron continued to support me to ensures the closing went smoothly and I was primed to get into my next home. I am grateful to have had Ron in my corner throughout this process and hopefully many more to come. Thank you, Ron!”
“Ron went above and beyond our expectations of a real estate agent in every way. From the moment he arrived to be interviewed with extensive, relevant, factual information related to the possible sale of my parent’s condo, through his outstanding service during the staging process, the showings and the final sale details, he demonstrated expertise as well as comprehension and compassion. Simply the best.”
“My husband and I were really lucky to have come across Ron. We liked his style and personality right away. When we were buying, the market in Ottawa was fast-paced. Ron was always available, ready to show us the latest listing and take action when needed. He gave us honest advice and put absolutely no pressure on us. This really allowed us to take our time and enjoy the process. When we finally found the perfect house for us, Ron was an excellent negotiator and truly took our best interests into consideration until the very end of the buying process. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who is looking for an agent. Working with someone like Ron can make all the difference. We couldn’t be happier with our home and look forward to working with him in the future!”
“As we’ve upsized and recently downsized over the course of our adult lives, we have dealt with many realtors. We met Ron Boulet in our latest downsizing exercise. Ron is by far the best realtor we have encountered. He immediately understood our needs and provided sage, ongoing advice.
We greatly appreciated his honest assessment when available homes were not just right for our current circumstances. His goal was to find the perfect place where we would be happy.
He was particularly creative in staging our home for listing, and was then exceedingly patient in finding the perfect buyer. Best of all, Ron is very collegial with a great sense of humour. We thoroughly enjoyed working with him.”
Thank you doesn’t begin to express how much I appreciate what you have done for me and the kids this year. Having you as our real estate agent was literally the best decision I made.
You went above and beyond in providing the best quality of service I have ever experienced, and I know I have made a friend along the way. This is the third house we have sold, but it is the first time that I felt I had someone who really knew his business guiding me through the whole process. You helped me with every decision – big and small- in preparing the house for sale, and you worked tirelessly the whole time. It was never too early or too late for answering my questions. I felt that I made informed decisions because of your advice, and for this I am infinitely grateful.
I am also grateful for the fact that you understood what I was looking for in a new house when I couldn’t put it into words. You took the time to understand what my family needed, and found the perfect home for us. Thank you for working so tirelessly for us. I could not have asked for a better real estate agent.”
“Our experience with Ron of buying our dream home and selling our beloved family home was absolutely wonderful. Ron worked tirelessly to meet our long list of requirements for our dream home and provided us with informed and unbiased advice to help us make a smart investment decision. When selling our home, Ron worked with all members of our family including our children to showcase our home’s best qualities, and made the emotional process of selling that much easier for everyone. Ron used his superior knowledge of our neighborhood real estate values and potential buyers to position our listing as both competitive and attractive. Ron never left our side throughout the process and went above and beyond our expectations to ensure a smooth home buying/selling experience. We’re forever thankful to Ron, and would recommend his services without hesitation!”
“Ron was highly recommended by a colleague and it did not take long to realize why. He is patient, extremely knowledgeable about the entire city, and honestly lays out the pros and cons of properties of interest. He encouraged me to expand my options in terms of housing and neighbourhoods, taking the time to educate me so that I could narrow down my search and find the absolute best fit for me. He is wonderful company to boot and I highly recommend Ron to anyone looking to find their dream home.”
“We know several real estate agents, but none as personable and confidence-inspiring as Ron Boulet. When we wandered into an open house one day, our aim was to get a general idea of areas close to downtown Ottawa so we could walk to work. With much grace and no pressure, Ron offered his services and it became clear that he thoroughly knows the neighbourhoods and housing markets. We thought it would be a challenge to find a house that would meet our criteria within our budget, so we gave ourselves a long-range goal. Ron was far more positive than we were. He got to work, sending us photos of properties that matched our wishes and accompanying us on visits. He always had done research beforehand so he could answer our questions. Within two months we had found our home. And it didn’t end there! When a few issues came up with the vendor before closing, Ron was there for us with invaluable guidance and assistance. We are impressed with Ron’s knowledge, efficiency and respect for everyone involved.”
“We had a great experience with Ron. He is extremely personable, professional and knowledgeable about the real estate market. He was attentive without being pushy, and we never felt pressured to put an offer on a house or bid more than we felt comfortable with. He helped us through a tough negotiation that ultimately resulted in us buying a house we absolutely love for what we felt was a very fair price in a hot seller’s market. We would highly recommend Ron to anyone looking for a realtor.”
“Ron worked with me to sell my condo in the downtown core of Ottawa, and it was a real pleasure to work with someone who is not only knowledgeable and professional, but also patient, friendly and reliable. Ron provided me with sound advice, and he did so with the utmost care and honesty. Ron is very meticulous and attentive to details. He does not waste any time and is very efficient. I also found Ron to be fully committed to meeting his clients’ needs, and he clearly impressed me by going beyond what standard real estate agents offer. While out of the country, my property suffered from a water leak that caused significant damage. Not only did Ron help me navigate throughout the entire emergency and repair process, but he took the lead in purchasing new material and even did some of the renovations to bring my unit back to its original pristine condition himself! I have nothing but complimentary things to say about Ron and would recommend his services without hesitation.”
“From the moment we were introduced to Ron we knew we were in good hands. He immediately put us at ease regarding the sale of our home. He took us through the selling process step by step ensuring that we at all times were comfortable.
Ron is very professional and his negotiating skills proved invaluable. His ability to establish the correct price point allowed us to be successful in selling our home quickly.”
“We had the pleasure of working with Ron on the purchase of our first property together. Ron had great knowledge of the processes involved, talked us through each and every step in detail, and was able to pinpoint what we were looking for in a property when we weren’t even sure ourselves. We are immensely grateful for his generosity of time and commitment that he gave us. Ron is an absolute gentleman and we would not hesitate in the slightest in recommending him.”
“Ten months ago, we bought our first home, and thanks to Ron, it was a completely successful and exciting experience! Not only did he inspire us to look into some additional and neat areas of the city, but his vision for what might be a good fit for our young family was also bang on. We could not be happier with our neighbourhood and home! Ron is a very pleasant person to work with. He knows all the trends and history of the market, and is a wonderful advisor and negotiator, but he will never push you to make decisions. He is always on your side, which to him, means you will enjoy the search process and become educated so that you feel empowered when it is time to make your big decision.”
“Ron was the consummate professional from end to end in regards to the sale of our home. His no pressure approach and countless hours of going through room by room to ensure we were putting our best foot forward was invaluable. Ron’s knowledge of the market, buyer behavior, and renovation trends came through in spades. All of this resulted in the acceptance of an over asking bid after being on the market for only seven day’s. We are absolutely delighted with the experience and end result of the engagement and will be calling upon his services to find our next home. I would recommend Ron without hesitation for any of your real estate needs.”
“We met Ron at an open house after moving to Ottawa and whilst we were looking for our family home. We chose Ron to be our real estate agent because we found that he had understood so exactly what we were looking for, his depth of knowledge, his ability to envision what a house could become (or not) and his flexibility. With busy jobs, a young child and another one on the way, he always made sure to accommodate our busy schedule and to let us know if something interesting was coming on the market. He also proved more than once to have had our best interest at heart and one example of this is when he discouraged us to put an offer on a house because he believed that it would not meet our medium to longer term needs and he was right.
Ron is a knowledgeable and trustworthy real estate agent and dealing with him has always been a pleasure. His knowledge and advice go far beyond what would be expected for an average agent. He would answer all of our questions (and we always had many!) and on the rare occasions when he would not know the answer he would verify this for us and get back to us the same day. Anyone would be lucky to have him as a real estate agent, we wish to recommend him whole heartedly – there are truly few professionals like him around!”
“Happily for us, we found Ron a friendly, knowledgeable and very effective advisor. He was superb in guiding us through the process with patience and good humor. Ron has an amazing eye for detail in showing how to highlight the features of a home. It was a treat to have him as our sales project manager.”
“Working with Ron Boulet was an excellent experience from beginning to end.
From the moment we first met Ron at an open house, we knew he was the right agent for us. As professionals with a busy family, we truly appreciated his non-pressure approach as we looked to find the perfect home that would suit our needs. His focus was to ensure that we, as home buyers, were educated and well-informed about the housing market and our options. We looked at a variety of homes and, through Ron’s expertise with both renovation and design, he was able to help us see the potential and hidden value in various properties. When we found the right home, Ron handled the transaction smoothly and expertly. We now recommend Ron to all of our friends and family.
We have always considered Faulkner Real Estate to be one of the premier real estate offices in Ottawa. Our experience with Ron has only helped to solidify this belief. We are so grateful that we had Ron on our side guiding us through our real estate journey!”
“Ron took the time to draw out exactly what we were looking for and provide tailored suggestions of available properties. It was clearly important to him to find us the right property rather than simply make a sale. We are very happy with our first home. We were also impressed with his advice and efforts during the purchasing process.”
“Trying to find your forever house in a small niche of Ottawa can be challenging. Fortunately meeting Ron at an open house we knew that he would be the one to help us end our search. As we worked with Ron he really understood what we were looking for and was able to preview and eliminate houses in our search (saving both of us precious time with our hectic schedules). Ron understood exactly what we were looking for as we continued looking at houses, he was patient and understanding as we searched. Ron has an excellent sense of seeing the possibilities in a house and what renovations could make it more our home. With great suggestions on upgrades and the costing involved in that process we were able to know the entirety of our investment.
Once we found the forever house Ron was quickly able to review our current house and help us decide what needed to be purged, changed or cleaned up to sell our house quickly. Throughout the entire process Ron was professional, well informed and brought levity and humor to what can be a stressful time in people’s lives. We feel that we gained a friend in the process along with finding a house that we will love for many years to come.”
