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.
Ben is fantastic, this is the 3rd time we have used him to buy or sell and we have no need to consider anyone else! He is very knowledgeable, does a great job of explaining the pricing of your property compared to the market, and works hard for his clients. He really did an amazing job getting us top dollar on our recent sale. We highly recommend Ben to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Ottawa.
Ben was a pleasure to deal with! He went above and beyond and was able to sell our condo in one week with no conditions! He made the selling process painless and we will definitely be using him again! We really feel from the first meeting with him to the final deal everything went smooth and the communication was A+
We recently sold our Richmond house through Royal LePage’s agent, Cydney Green. We couldn’t have been happier with our choice of realtor. Her organizational skills are top-notch. She has a knack of simplifying tasks inherent in selling a home. Tasks like preparation of it for actual sale including necessary repairs, disposal of unwanted furniture, garden tidying,etc. She eased us into the leave-taking of our home of 44 years with minimal stress. She got things done for us with great ease and grace. Thank you for the beautiful bouquet. As I continue to elevate my leg, looking at it brings me so much pleasure and contentment.

Ben was very helpful in helping me buy my first house. He was patient in the search and knew exactly what to look for when viewing the homes. The whole process operated like clockwork, I was pleasantly surprised how simple and efficient it was. I recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a property in the Ottawa area.
My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Ben this summer (2017) to find our new home in Ottawa. His easy going manner, excellent knowledge of the Ottawa market, and attention to detail were impressive. Since we were new to the Ottawa market, he patiently familiarized us with potential locations that matched our criteria. As he learned our specific requirements, the search narrowed until the perfect site was discovered in record time. Securing the property could have presented a problem due to the hot market and multiple interested parties, but Ben masterfully navigated us through the process. The perfect home was ours within 24 hours. We are grateful to Ben for making what can be a stressful time so easy, and would highly recommend him to friends or associates.

Ben helped us find the perfect house to start our family. As first time home buyers we had lots of questions, and he always had the answers, or knew where to find them. Awesome communication made sure we were always on top of things. Was great to have Ben on our side during all aspects of the buying process. If we ever decide to sell, Ben will 100% be out first call!

Cydney Green was amazing to work with. She knew the time was right to sell our condo and she had it staged and ready to hit the market within two weeks. She brought in a few key furniture pieces and artwork from her personal collection and our place looked fabulous! The condo sold in less than a week and we truly believe the staging and marketing were huge factors. We were then ready to find our dream home. After hearing our must-haves, Cydney gave us amazing options and was very patient during our hunt. We ended up in a wonderful neighbourhood in a fantastic house! Cydney made sure the conditions were met and price was right! Cydney is incredibly knowledgeable and easy to work with. We’d recommend her in a heartbeat!

“Ben stands out as a professional in a market flooded with unpredictable realtors. After having a number of bad experiences, we were referred to Ben and decided to give him a try. I’ll never go to anyone else. He is accessible, has a clear head, and can negotiate skillfully. I never once felt out of the loop or concerned about the process of selling. He made it painless. Ben has it under control. He is creative and not afraid to get dirty. He takes the time and care needed without making you feel rushed. Ben is a class act and the best realtor I’ve ever met. You will not be disappointed if you give him your business.”

I have known Ben for 5+ years and met him at an Open House. Since that time, I always felt comfortable connecting with Ben whenever I had a real estate-related question, concern or request. When making the decision to sell my home in Kanata, Ben walked me through the initial steps to prep my home and discuss the realities involved when selling a property. He was most professional and honest about what was required of me and what I might expect in the coming weeks. Ben’s knowledge of the various steps in selling a property were most helpful and provided me with a realistic approach and outcome. Furthermore, Ben’s calm demeanor helped maintain my own cool, as I knew I could trust his word. All concerns and offers were brought to me quickly and accurately. Ben explained each issue in a manner that was easy for me to comprehend, which enabled me to make sensible decisions. I truly felt like I was part of Ben’s real estate Team. Ben, I can’t thank you enough for making this experience seamless. I would recommend you to my friends and family, without hesitation. In fact, I referred my daughter, Sarah to Ben and she couldn’t be more pleased. I wish you all the success, Ben with thanks and blessings,
I would highly recommend Ben Wightman to my friends, colleagues and any homeowner wishing to sell their house, anywhere in the city or countryside. Ben is very knowledgeable, thorough and efficient. He communicates extremely well and is focused on making the process as smooth and unobtrusive as possible for the homeowner. During my sale, we had a few challenges, and throughout, Ben was always calm and patient, and displayed his professionalism. The house Ben sold for me had many non-standard elements to it. Ben took his time and effort to investigate various options for potential buyers. He never wavered on his commitment to sell the house as requested. He sold my house and I am a very happy client. Thank you Ben for the way you sold my house!
