We cannot speak highly enough of Ben. Our process to buy a home had every possible obstacle. My wife was commuting by plane each week from Mississauga to Ottawa, we were having a hard time selling our Mississauga home, we had only ever lived in the suburbs, we had no idea of Ottawa neighbourhoods, and we had to squeeze home viewings into very tight windows when I could fly down. Luckily, Ben overcame all of these and helped us-with knowledge, patience, kindness, guidance and expertise-to find the dream home we did not know we wanted ! Right on the canal, close to downtown, a beautiful Georgian style townhome that we love. All the while, we had total confidence in Ben. He took the time we needed to look and decide, he knew the neighbourhoods and their strengths and weaknesses, he was a skilled negotiator and a great person to see homes with. No hard sell, he always made us aware of things to consider when we fell for a home that maybe wasn’t the right fit. He was available at all times and went above and beyond to take care of us. We have recommended him to others without hesitation. Especially since after the sale he was there to help us with spot on recommendations for services like storage and contractor. If you want to buy or sell a home, and you need an expert agent who you can trust completely, Ben is who you want.
When we started our search, we weren’t really sure what we were looking for. Within the first few house visits, Ben was able to navigate the things we liked and the things that we didn’t – and very quickly we were seeing houses that started to line up with our interests.Ben was very patient throughout our 10 month search, and always willing to answer all of our questions in a speedy manner.The final property we saw, was one that he thought would be perfect for us, and he was right. We toured the property and fell in love with the house.He was incredibly helpful throughout the sale and closing process – and represented us with full transparency, and with our best interests in mind.We recommend Ben very highly to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, professional, and friendly agent.

Ben just completed the sale of our daughter’s house due to a marriage breakup. The house was quite a sales challenge due to its size & layout. Ben was very patient & understand dealing with a generally difficult situation all around. We are very pleased with the end result getting the house sold on a timely basis & our target sales figure. We look forward to working with Ben in the future & would certainly recommend him to friends & family.
We had been searching for a family house for a while, when we decided to contact Ben. We had worked with many agents prior and we were a little unsure how it would turn out. However, Ben instantly understood exactly what we were looking for. We appreciated his honesty and advice while he patiently helped us search for what we were looking for. When we flipped around to sell our house, Ben supported us through each step of that process making it very simple for us (which was key when selling with young kids!). We highly recommend him. He’s patient, honest, and personable.
Ben had an offer for my asking price within 4 days of listing with him. He also shepherded the closing process with great attention to detail. I highly recommend Ben for both sellers and buyers.
I have known Ben for 5+ years and worked with him when I purchased my present home. Ben also sold my home in Kanata when I decided to make the move closer to the country. It only took 2 weeks!! My daughter and I found a property, Ben prepared the Offer and then my house was put on the market. It took only 2 days to get an offer. All conditions for the purchase of my new home and sale of my present home were satisfied in 2 weeks. Recognizing that we were selling late the season, Ben was quick to get everything in place so we could get the house on the market and prepare for an Open House. The offer came in before the Open House! Ben’s attention to detail and expertise made this process seamless and more than comfortable.I would not use any other realtor, as Ben is not only an expert in his field but he is also an honest and caring individual. Thanks Ben for taking the worry out of this process. You’re awesome!
Amazing service, Ben is very helpful and knowledgeable.
Ben is completely approachable with a fantastic wealth of knowledge. Totally recommend him and his service couldn’t be more impressed.
We recently worked with Ben to sell our home. He is incredibly personable, friendly, and easy to talk to and work with. He is always quick to respond to questions and easy to get ahold of. This was our second time working with Ben and we would unreservedly recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor.
There’s no better agent in Ottawa. After working with less experienced realtors who didn’t make great suggestions or we’re really knowledgeable about the work we needed to do to a home before we moved in, a close friend Recomended we see Ben. We ended up buying our starter home and then our second home from him and referred basically everyone we know whose buying or selling a house to him. Bens knowledge of Ottawa, homes and home renovations and negotiations were absolutely invaluable to us. And he makes it an issue to still help us out in finding good people to help in our renos. Bens absolutely awesomene. No need to look any further if your buying or selling. Thanks again Ben!
Ben patiently worked with us for over two years to help us find the home that met all of our many wants and needs. He was very accommodating to our schedules and promptly responded to our many (many!) questions. His advice was honest and always took into account our best interests, while his knowledge and keen eye for the strengths and weaknesses of a house and its neighbourhood were an invaluable asset. When the right house came up Ben moved at light speed to arrange for us to see it within two hours of its listing and came prepared for us to be able to make an offer that same evening, allowing us to purchase a home without a bidding war in a heated market. We would wholeheartedly recommend Ben to our friends and anyone else.
Near the end of April my large country home was listed For Sale. After only three weeks of effort, drama and decision-making, not only was it sold but also I had bought a moderate sized bungalow in an admired part of Suburbia. Every day was an exhausting nail-biter of detail! By my side throughout this journey was Ben Wightman, the real estate agent I’d chosen a year ago to represent me when the adventure would begin. And THAT was my best decision of all! Ben was innovative, supportive and incredibly hard-working. He believed in my home, advertised it brilliantly, and knew how to navigate shoals that can accompany country selling. He was always there to address endless questions and provide intelligent & sensible answers. When I found another home, he helped me buy it, in a competitive and scary-busy market. My closings haven’t happened yet, and there is still Work to do. But I have faith in Ben and I KNOW he will continue to guide me and help confront what occasionally seems confusing. I cannot recommend this agent highly enough. He is making achievable what appeared impossibly challenging, and with good humour, loyalty and plenty of ‘smarts’. Bravo, Ben. Thank you for being my helmsman as I sail into a new life.
We just purchased our home with Ben and could not be happier with his service. Ben was very patient as we visited home after home looking for the right fit, his knowledge of home renovations and Ottawa’s neighborhoods was invaluable. He was always available and even came to meet us on a holiday with 2 hours notice at a home that turned out to be the one! Once we decided to put in an offer, Ben arranged a home inspection and was able to have a roofing trade check out a potential issue and offer advice within 24 hours. We will 100% enlist Ben’s service in the future.
This was our 1st experience, As green horns we had a lot of questions for Ben in regards to the sell of our home. Ben is very knowledgeable, he did a great job explaining the selling of our property. He worked with us in getting our home ready for sale. His expertise got us above asking price on our recent sale. We highly recommend Ben to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
We spent a year and a half looking for the perfect house for our family and Ben was our agent from day one. We probably visited around 30 houses! Ben is knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and patient. He also has excellent connections in the industry for home repairs/renos. Ben went above and beyond to help us in the process of buying a house.
