This is a one-of-a-kind team. We are so happy we chose Kurt and Joanne!
We met Kurt a couple years ago when we tried to sell our house with another realtor, a friend. Things went sour really quick with our friend realtor as we were promised the sky and the moon and we got nothing. So we pulled the house off the market and we tried to sell it a year after on our own for a very short time while in town. That didn't turn out as we expected either. We tried Grapevine and that was another disaster! Grapevine kept misplacing our sign, then the phone numbers were not ours etc, a nightmare! So you get the picture. Saving money is not always beneficial if you want the house sold, we learned that the hard way!
So this time we wanted someone professional, that knew our area, Kanata. We just fell in love with Kurt the first time we met him, he made such a wonderful, professional and honest impression on us when we met him. He was one of the realtors that brought buyers to our home when we trying to sell it on our own the first time around. Of all the realtors that showed up with clients...Kurt was the only one we kept in mind and on facebook for when we were someday ready to try selling again.
We are so very happy we did, Kurt and Joanne are such a hard working team , quick, responsive, keeping us all the way informed, weekly reports, feedbacks, reassessment of the market price, aggressive if needed and we definitely needed that after hurting ourselves in the market by placing the house multiple times for short period. They were there night and day replying to any of our questions/concerns, and we truly feel that we couldn't have chosen a better team than these two wonderful people.
Our house is officially SOLD! Go with this team you will not regret it! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts dear Kurt and Joanne!!!

Joanne very readily and capably responded to our initial inquiries, based on a friend’s personal reference. Her manner was then-and has remained ever since-genuinely friendly and engaging. She was knowledgeable and professional in every way, yet always managed to explain information to us, her clients, in clear and uncomplicated language. The sense of trust that must, of necessity, exist between agent and client very quickly established itself, thanks in very large measure to Joanne’s reassuring ways.
Joanne puts forward a perfectly credible and trustworthy presence-one that we found immediately made us the entire focus of her efforts. On several occasions, such efforts also went well beyond what we would consider her obligations as our real estate agent, and her advice on the those occasions was appreciated and put to good use. The care and attention that she put into the offer which we eventually presented to purchase a new home in Stonebridge demonstrated a skill and marketing sense that achieved exactly what we required, and probably saved us money we would have otherwise been willing to spend to obtain the home we wanted.
In closing, we can state with confidence that Joanne has very simply help us achieve our dream. We will, without question, be recommending her to friends and acquaintances for years to come.

I needed my house sold as soon as possible. Around xmas time is never the best time to put a house on the market. Had no fears as I was told Kurt would work very hard to find a buyer and he did. Fabulous job Kurt. I couldn't have asked for better. In the future if I need to buy or sell. Kurt will be the first person I call!
Without a doubt, Joanne, you have exceeded all of our expectations in an agent. Your personalized approach, extensive knowledge and professionalism, combined with your strong commitment to truly understanding your client needs, truly sets you apart from the rest.

I can speak from experience...Kurt listed our home this week and so far he has been amazing! He brings enormous energy, enthusiasm and life experience. He has made us feel we are in very capable hands. Best of all, his positive attitude and sense of humour are contagious!
Given the stressful nature of choosing the perfect house within a limited timeframe, our choice of Joanne Hutchinson as our agent was not only extremely positive but instrumental in choosing the ‘right’ home for our family.

My wife Erin and I would like to thank Joanne for her supreme effort and for sincerely going well beyond the call of duty! Joanne helped us sell our home as well as purchase our new home. As soon as Joanne knew we were ready to sell, she had our home ready and on-line with pictures within hours. She made herself available to us, no matter what the hour, to make our purchase and sale a priority. Not only did she make the process simple and enjoyable, but she put us in contact with all the people we needed to connect with in renovating our new purchase! Well beyond the job description Joanne. We’re so happy with our new purchase that I doubt we’ll be calling on you any time soon, but when it’s time, that decision is already made! Our very sincere thanks for all of your help Joanne!

Joanne worked with us to sell our home and buy a new one. She was not only competent and professional but made the whole process enjoyable. We looked forward to hearing from Joanne as she kept us up to date through all the steps involved in buying and selling. We always felt we could call Joanne at any time if we had any questions. Joanne has a very friendly and approachable manner and we feel she really cares about the people she works with.

From the outset of our relationship with Joanne, we knew we had made the right choice of realtor to assist us with purchasing our first home. Joanne was able to quickly have a comprehensive understanding of the type of home we were looking for. In a matter of 3 days we reviewed listings, toured homes and made an offer on a home that was accepted. Joanne always went that extra mile…literally, as she drove half-way to where we were staying outside of the city to meet us to sign papers so that we would not have to make a long drive into Ottawa. As well, she toured us around the neighbourhood so we could have a sense of where our children would go to school, what amenities are available in the area, and even where our son would play hockey once the season began. It is without hesitation that we would refer anyone to Joanne!

When faced with the enormous task of selecting our new home, there was no question that without Joanne’s dedication, we would not have found our dream home. Thanks to Joanne’s understanding of our family’s space requirements, a strong market knowledge of home selling features paired with current real estate availability and tireless efforts to show us many, many properties and give sincere and concrete guidance every step of the way, we were able to land a home in our desired area that had all the amenities on our wish list. Joanne not only helped us make a real estate transaction – she was instrumental in helping us select a home that is a haven to retreat to at the end of the day and one that will furnish many family memories for years to come. In the future we would not hesitate to team up with Christine and Joanne again and we highly recommend them for all your real estate endeavours!

Joanne agreed to become our real-estate agent after one long distance phone call. Based on that call she developed a thorough understanding of what we were looking for in a home and immediately began forwarding vetted MLS listings for us to consider. When the time came to view properties she proved to have a deep knowledge of the strengths and weaknesses of the various builders in the area, the history of the neighbourhoods and the details of future developments that might have an impact on our decision. In short, she was able to do more than find us a house, she found us a home, a school and a neighbourhood – and she did most of this on a long weekend. She is a great realtor.

Following a years’ worth of looking on our own for a resale home with the right criteria, we began working with Joanne following an open house we attended. Joanne listened to what we had to say, we built a relationship with Joanne and she grew to know exactly what we were looking for. We continued to look for the right home together. Joanne found what she thought was the right fit, we looked, confirmed that it was and closed the deal in a very short amount of time. Joanne was working with many potential buyers and found a buyer for our home in hours! A very positive experience, dealing with professionals that understand the market and could make things happen.
Kerry and Derek
We cannot say enough good things about Joanne. She was an excellent realtor who honestly answered our questions and made us feel at ease with our purchase decision. She took the time to show us the neighbourhoods and point out the location of amenities she knew we were interested in. After looking at a few houses, she had a good idea of what we wanted from a house. Joanne showed us other houses on the market that she knew we would like even though we did not place them on our short list. One of them was the perfect house for us and we bought it. Joanne was professional, friendly and knowledgeable and we would definitely work with her again.
