Testimonials


We met Trevor Sanna following an on line inquiry for a property listed with The Guy With The Dog (cool name). He replied right away, called to explain that the listing was already conditionally sold and offered to help us find a waterfront home. Some unique move requirements due to the move being a Canadian Forces retirement move, but Trevor was extremely attentive to our needs and sent several listings for us to consider. We met him to look at one of the listings, and frankly to scope him out as a potential buyers’ realtor - he was early for the appointment and professional in all regards. In a few weeks he did find us the house we wanted and was 100% our right hand man throughout the whole process - inspections for things such as well, septic were new to us and Trevor was very knowledgable. After the outstanding experience we had with Trevor on our team to buy, he offered to list our home. 24 hours later he presented his plan and went over market conditions, leading to a listing. We had the pleasure of multiple offers within 24 hrs and sold over asking once all the buyers’ conditions were met about a week later. Trevor is a calming influence on the emotional state people can get in when buying and selling, he is a consummate professional in all regards. I have zero hesitation when I say he has our fullest recommendation to anyone in need of the best realtor you can find.

I was referred to by a colleague to ‘The Guy With The Dog’; Sean was familiar with the areas I was interested in and had a good idea of what I was looking for in a home. After working with previous realtors, I was not optimistic, however this was night and day.

The attention to detail, my ‘must have list’ and other factors that were taken into consideration did not go unnoticed- not to mention things I never would have thought to ask or look for. Sean set up a strong customised search, modifying as we needed to, to ensure we captured the most options. Available at all times for questions (no matter how small or what seemed obscure), Sean and his team were able to help me find a great home. Lots of visits, out of regular office hours attention and superb communication made this an amazing adventure from start to end.

I would highly recommend Sean to anyone I know buying or selling. I’m thrilled with my new home purchase. Regardless of the outcome, I was glad to work with Sean and his team. My next purchase will definitely be through ‘The Guy With The Dog!

It was important to us that we invest some time in choosing the right realtor to sell our house - my husband and I both work full time, have two very young kids, and really needed a realtor who could help us make a fast and fair sale, while making the actual selling process as painless as possible.

So....because I like to do my research, I asked everyone I could think of for recommendations of realtors they had personally used, and ended up with a list of more than 35 names. I ended up interviewing 4 pretty impressive realtors - all of whom were recommended by multiple people - including Sean from The Guy With the Dog Real Estate Group. Of this group, it was still an easy decision to choose to work with Sean and his team. Frankly, he won us over in the end by showing us data from his sales results from his years of experience as a realtor in Ottawa. We could see his results consistently exceeded the sales criteria that were important to us...it was pretty clear he was very, very good at his work.

We are happy to say that our experience in 2 months following (as we prepared the house for sale and then listed) did not disappoint in any way. Sean and his team were exceptional to work with, they definitely made our lives easier during the house prep and selling process, and at the end, our house sale went faster and better than we dared ever hope. We are very grateful and are truly happy to write this recommendation - he’s a true professional, a very nice person and most importantly...he will get the job done! We would absolutely work with Sean and his team again.

Mr. Sanna was a great help to us finding a suitable townhouse for long-term lease. He listened very carefully and didn’t ignore any of our requirements, provided all necessary information both before and after signing a lease agreement, never hesitated to come in person or answer any questions. I highly recommend his services for anyone looking for real-estate buy or lease in Ottawa area.
— Boris S.

Sean was referred to me by his old clients. He has agreed to sell our condo and help us buy our new property. Thanks to Sean, we could sell our condo successfully and he has introduced us to his team member Trevor. Trevor and Sean together helped us buy a semi - detach house that is perfect for our growing family. Both our sale and purchase have gone smoothly thanks to Sean and Trevor. We are planning to live in our new property for a very long time, but if I ever need to sell/buy again, I will be a returning client. I can freely recommend the duo and their services!

Where do I start? The house hunting process did not get off to a great start for us. We had a bad experience elsewhere, so when we met Trevor, we were so pleased with his desire to find us “our” home! Trevor made the process stress free and enjoyable. Anytime we saw a home that we were interested in, he was always ready to show it to us and give us all the information we needed. When the home was not the right fit for us, he always told us, “don’t worry, WE will find it!” I anxiously waited for emails of new house listings, but Trevor actually contacted us seconds after I got the notification for our home. He knew right away it was the one for us! He worked hard to get us the home, with all the conditions we really wanted. Words cannot express how happy we are with Trevor! From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU!
— Stacey L.

I cannot begin to find the words to express how wonderful my experience was. Sean and his team were all easily accessible to answer my questions and walk me through the process. And to have the results we had speak to them and their expertise. I wouldn’t go anywhere else if I had another home to sell.
— Judy B.

My girlfriend and I had a great experience with Trevor. He was very patient with us and was very knowledgeable. Trevor always made the extra effort and went out of his way to accommodate our complicated work schedule. With this being our first house, Trevor was very informative and explained to us the whole process from start to finish and helped us throughout the whole process with a professional manner. If ever we buy another house we are definitely going to use Trevor again.
— Mathieu L.

Sean and his whole team have been exceptionally helpful throughout the selling process.
— Christine M.

Trevor was very professional, efficient and made sure to provide us all the information needed for the rental of our place! He made sure that we fully understood the lease agreement, answered all our questions and also got the info needed from the landlord! His service was excellent and a pleasure working with him! Thank you!
— Mario L.

This is the fourth house we have sold with Sean and we have only had positive experiences. In what I think is a down market right now, Sean and his team sold our house in five days. His experience in real-estate has always helped us in selling but also in buying. We are very happy with Sean and his amazing team!!!
— Steph & Phil R.

When we were looking for our new home, Trevor impressed us among other things by really listening to what we had to say, and adapting his searches and suggestions to our needs – while we ourselves were realizing what they were. He was always more than happy to show us places we had found ourselves, and to shift the geographical scope as we saw more clearly what we wanted. He was honest in his opinions on the pros and cons of various parts of the city. The place we ended up buying was listed by the same agency, so there was the potential for him to want to push us into this option. But there was never any hint of that, and all options were pursued on their merits. When we came around to this choice on our own, he represented us faithfully in the negotiations and helped us get a very fair price. Trevor was always ready to help by coming to us (we don’t yet have a car), and no request or question was considered inappropriate. You’d be in good hands if you had him as your agent.

A world class company lead by a brilliant leader. Sean’s drive to serve his clients in a meaningful way along with his commitment to achieving the best results for the families is amazing. I trust Sean, I’ve used him a number of times and I will continue to call on The Guy With The Dog whenever I need help!
— Ralph C.

We recently purchased and sold homes with Trevor and had a wonderful experience on both counts. Trevor was invaluable in quickly handling any and all inquiries we had during our house search and was extremely prompt in setting up appointments on short notice. When selling our existing home, the resources and consultation made available to us enabled us to complete the sale very quickly and efficiently. Trevor’s knowledge, professionalism and patience was top notch and made the entire process of buying and selling a home a pleasant one.
— Casey T.

I would refer Sean and his team to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. Buying/selling your house is one of the biggest decisions you can make and you want to work with people you trust and that understand this huge process. Sean is personable, professional, kind and an expert in real estate. Thank you always Sean and your team!
— Stephanie H.

We were both out-of-town and first-time home buyers so we had lots of questions. Trevor was remarkably responsive and helpful and was able to offer us sound guidance while ensuring we were in charge of the whole process. As a result, we were able to make our purchase with a great deal of confidence and arrived to town and into a home we love. We would enthusiastically recommend Trevor to anyone looking for a realtor in the Ottawa area!

Sean and the team are amazing. We have bought through them and referred friends and family as well. Awesome group!
