We bought our Barrhaven home from Sean when we moved to Ottawa in 2007. He provided us sound, well documented advice on area values and what we should expect to pay for the property we eventually purchased. We have had ongoing contact with Sean & his team ever since as they are very active in the community. When we decided to downsize Sean again provided sound, well documented advice on the current market and a realistic value we should expect for our home. The house was listed on a Thursday and sold within 5 days with 2 offers over the asking price. Sean is unbelievably accessible by phone, text & email. We received ‘Platinum Service’ and have no hesitation in referring Plum Realty to everyone!
Sean, Trevor, Valerie and the team were absolutely outstanding in the sale of home. Sean’s knowledge and understanding of the market and approach to selling were instrumental in the quick and low stress sale of our home. Trevor was also fantastic in helping us find our new home. We appreciate the time he has taken to help us find the right place and his ongoing support. The whole McCann team is very professional and welcoming. Thank you so much for all your hard work!
Sean and the team at Plum were amazing. This is the third time we have worked with Sean and every time we have received an offer within a week for more than asking price. Our home was sold in less than one week and we are very happy with the entire team.
We have bought and sold four houses with Sean and his team. Every home we have listed with him has sold in a few days and for over asking price. His negotiation skills are top level. His ability to help clients find a sound investment has become something we depend on. He represents himself, his team and his clients’ homes uber professionally. He and the whole team are well-respected, completely reliable, and a pleasure to work with. Truly.
We got in touch with our agent Lucy Hua via friend and will definitely recommend her to the others. Lucy is very professional, efficient, well prepared, and always enthusiastic to help through out the whole home searching process. She searched and showed us exactly the units we are looking for after short discussion about the location, type of house, and price range. She prepared detailed documents, explained everything, and was extremely helpful for sending in, negotiating, and finalizing the offer. She tried different strategies to help us saving time and money for the whole home hunting process. Lucy also offered many other helps either from her personal experience, e.g., furniture buying, or through her network, e.g., mortgage tips and legal stuff. We finished our house hunting within 3 weeks and were very happy to work with Lucy. We recommend Lucy and her team for your home hunting.
We worked with Trevor Sanna from The Guy with The Dog Real Estate to purchase our new home and rent our existing home and we are very happy with the level of service that we’ve been provided with throughout the process. Trevor’s patience, communication, organizational and problem solving skills brought a much needed sense of calm and order to an otherwise chaotic number of weeks as we negotiated both transactions to our satisfaction. Trevor is incredibly responsive, making himself available to troubleshoot issues as they arose at any hour on any day of the week. I wholeheartedly endorse Trevor Sanna and his team and recommend that you speak to him for your next Real Estate transaction.
My husband and I consider ourselves extremely fortunate to have had Sean represent us in the purchase and sales of several homes in the past. This time was no different. As a military family, we have moved many times and Sean’s expertise, advice, patience and wonderful sense of humor help to alleviate much of the stress associated with frequent relocations. For our latest purchase, Sean went above and beyond in dealing with our specific needs, our inconsistencies in where we wanted to live, and my pickiness with houses more generally. Throughout this experience, he raised considerations we didn’t think of and always had our best interests in mind. Whether it was seeing houses, taking our calls or responding to emails - Sean was always available and happy to help. Without Sean (and we can’t forget Valerie!), we never would have found the house that we did. We’re so excited to move in! They are the absolute BEST and I will continue to recommend the Guy with the Dog to all of our friends.
A HUGE thank you to Trevor and his amazing team for finding our dream home and selling our house after an incredible 3 days on the market!! We are amazed at how quickly everything came together and highly recommend their services. A pleasure to work with, thank you all so much! :)
I worked with Sean directly to sell my home in central park. I interviewed him as an agent and he impressed me with the confidence and factual numbers he displaced in what was the proper price point to sell my house. He provide excellent advise and answered all of our questions. The rest of his team were efficient. The house sold in 5 days for my asking price.
We would definitely have Trevor as our real estate agent again! Trevor was very helpful in showing us different properties I felt completely relaxed knowing the property search was in his very capable hands. I would highly recommend Trevor to our friends and colleagues!
Working with Trevor was fantastic! He was very patient and understanding of our fairly particular needs, and his calm demeanor made us less stressed out about the entire home-buying experience. He made himself available at all times and worked around our schedule. His availability was one of the key reasons we found our house in the context of a hot market, by being the first people to see it. We could fully trust his feedback when it came to making decisions. He also provided us with great contacts for the inspection, mortgage, and legal side of things. We will definitely recommend Trevor to anyone buying or selling a home!
Amazing people to work with. Your one stop point for real estate in Ottawa. They have knowledge on all aspects of real estate. As a first time buyer, Trevor has been so informative and provided guidance at each level of transaction. Look forward to keep working with them. Keep Up the good work guys
They go above and beyond to show you how much your business is appreciated... from the annual Christmas tree event to the movie morning!! It is rare in this day and age. I would definitely recommend them to my friends and family!
It was such an amazing experience buying our first home. I thought it was going to be so stressful but Trevor made it SO easy and completely worked around our schedule. He was completely honest about every home and was never once pushy or just looking to make the sale. He genuinely cares about his customers and really makes this whole process so much easier. He had great contacts for home inspections and mortgage brokers as well, which was amazing. We literally couldn’t be happier!!!! Can’t wait to move into our new home!
As a first time buyer, I honestly cannot be more pleased with the experience working with Trevor and Sean. Trevor was incredibly knowledgeable and personable, helping us find exactly what we were looking for in a house, while helping us avoid pitfalls we never would have noticed without him. Trevor helped us find the perfect house, a house that we cannot possibly be more happy to now be living in. But possibly more importantly, he made the entire experience fun. He was always ready with a joke, a laugh, or a funny story, which definitely helped our excitement going out and looking at each house that interested us. Again, I cannot more highly recommend The Guy(s) With The Dog. Especially since... have you SEEN the dogs? So cute. So fluffy. If you need a house, go with TGWTD!
As first time sellers, my partner and I had no idea where to start or what to expect when selling our home. Trevor was a pleasure to work with, as he took the time and dedication required to guide us through the entire process step by step with knowledge and expertise. He was patient and accommodating, even with our tight timeframes and hectic schedules! We took comfort in knowing that Trevor was representing our best interests and we trusted his advice. Trevor and his team turned a process that seemed to us impossible at the onset into a successful sale in which we were very happy. We would highly recommend Trevor and The Guy With The Dog Real Estate Group to any of our friends and family and look forward to working with them again in the future.
As first-time homebuyers, we were so grateful to have found a real estate agent with such professionalism and expertise. Working with Sean was a valuable experience; he was able to guide us through the entire process by breaking down such an overwhelming task into manageable steps, and by providing us with reliable contacts for lawyer and mortgage broker services. We found Sean to be very knowledgeable of the different communities in Ottawa, and based on our requirements, he provided us with great recommendations. Most importantly, he went above and beyond by negotiating a fair price on our house that had multiple competing offers; it is only because of his exceptional service that we are currently living in our dream-home! We could not recommend him enough!
This was a very great experience working with their team. I mostly worked exclusively with Trevor in finding a new investment property. Trevor dedicated the time to understand exactly what type of property I was looking for and then actively searched for me. I viewed several properties before making a final decision but i have to say that non of the viewing we went to were a waste of time. Trevor provided me with some very good supplemental documents in regards to the market and the demographics of areas we were searching in. Their team is very professional and respond to your needs and request almost momentarily. I would highly recommend them to other friends, family & co workers of mine. Great job guys!
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.
Top notch all the way! Sean and his team were on top of everything and kept us in the loop the whole time. We are very satisfied homeowners!!
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.
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!
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.
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.
Sean and his whole team have been exceptionally helpful throughout the selling process.
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!
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!!!
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!
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.
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!
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!
