I have had the pleasure of working with Ben now in 3 different scenarios. He helped find me my first home, then helped me sell it, and buy my second home. His transparency and honesty is refreshing and throughout the process he always made me feel secure in my decisions. He was always available and willing to accommodate my less than ideal schedule. It is because of all of this that I have recommended Ben to many friends of mine and will continue to do so. Thank you, Ben!

Best in the business. Ben is awesome. If you’re looking to purchase or sell a home Ben is the man. Ben made our first home buying experience so easy! His knowledge, flexibility, & attention to detail made us feel confident in our decisions & ultimately scored us our perfect home! We couldn’t be happier. 10/10 would recommend him to everyone I know.

Lucas Hailu and Alexa Maimone


We hired Ben for the second time to help us sell our house and buy our new one. The entire experience was great and the result was even better. Don’t be fooled by his laid back approach in the beginning as when the chips are down and it comes time to do the best deal possible he turns into a totally different person. And boy did he deliver. His advice is always sound and backed by clear data and reasoning and his team makes sure that all the right things happen when they should. He isn’t happy with good, he pushes for great. We got more than we wanted for our house because of him and we would recommend him without hesitation.

How can I put my experience into words. Hmmm….Working with Ben Wightman and his team has been the most painLESS pleasant, easy, stress FREE, wonderful experience EVER! I have sold two homes and have never had an experience like this with a realtor. I would sell 10 more houses with Ben in a heartbeat! When we met, he asked me to trust him and told me he would look after me, and he did! He took care of EVERYTHING! Honestly a white glove experience! He helped me with contractors, his stager Nona was amazing! His assistant Bailey was great! Ben is the most kind, polite, honest man. A man of his word! (never seen that in a Realtor until now) A rare gem! But a shark in his field!! He worked crazy hard for us! There were many obstacles in selling my place, MANY, but because of Ben and his team, the experience was effortless on our part! But great effort on his part 110% !! Thank you Team Ben!! Thank you!

My wife and I had originally met Ben through a referral from a close friend. Over the last 8 years, he’s helped us navigate through the intense housing market here in Ottawa and has seen our family grow and move through 3 different homes all in which he was apart of. We have developed more then just a working relationship with Ben as our families have also grown close. He’s not only great at his profession, he’s a fantastic person to be around and always wanted the best for us which really means a lot these days. Thanks again Ben for the smooth quick sale!!

Geoff Compton


Ben is a fantastic realtor. We’ve used his services for three transactions now, and have recommended him to everyone we know. He helped us get top dollar for our properties, including more than a hundred thousand dollars over asking for our most recent sale. Ben also has a very keen eye for value-priced properties in the Ottawa area, and knows the market extremely well. If we buy in Ottawa again, we will 100% utilize his services again.

Matthew Daluz


You are in good hands with this realtor. Ben has acted as my realtor for several properties, and each time he has blown me away with his professionalism and ability to get the job done, no matter the obstacle. You can tell that he cares about his clients and works round the clock to do his best for them. He has an amazing team that also exceeds expectations, from the stager to the photographer. He really takes care of everything so you don’t have to. If I could add another star to this rating, I would!

Renate Anna Kandler


Ben was amazing at helping us buy and sell a home. He reduced the overall stress with the entire process. We were worried at first at the suggestion of buying first and selling second but he was absolutely right on all of his advice. His strategy has adapted to the current real estate market and he keeps on top of current trends.His best advice was making sure we were well informed with our offer price. We went in fully expecting to have to go through this process a few times. We won our first bid due to Ben’s advice. Ben set great expectations on what a home would sell for and what to expect from competing offers.His skills at selling a home were perfect as well. He timed everything well and pushed to list before the spring rush. He set up the connections for getting the home staged and getting some minor repairs done. His reassurance during the showing process eased the stress and in the end we were happy. His confidence in suggesting a sale price and getting interest was key in getting multiple offers.

Tim Mok


Ben was recommended to my boyfriend and I by a family member when we were looking to purchase our first home. We were told that he is the best all around: professional, responsive, knowledgeable, detail-oriented, honest and easy to work with. Needless to say, he did not disappoint and lived up to every one of our expectations. He is willing to go the extra mile for his clients and it’s so appreciated. I would most definitely recommend Ben if you are looking for your perfect home. He made our first home buying experience nearly effortless.

Rielly Riggs


Ben was amazing when it came to the sale of my condo. He was able to effectively evaluate the market and take advantage of the fact inventory was very low. He also did a phenomenal job managing the sale while the unit was tenant occupied. He managed to work well with the tenant and his concerns while simultaneously ensuring my needs as the owner were met. This was especially impressive considering staging the unit for sale, and getting the unit freshly painted all needed to be done in a very tight window of time. Two thumbs up, I would highly recommend Ben for your real estate needs.

Tavis Austen


Ben made the sale of our home/purchase of our new home extremely quick and painless, and was always available to talk. He marketed our house perfectly, and found us exactly what we were looking for. He is definitely who we’ll be looking to for any future purchases.

Mark Laberge


From our first interaction we knew this team was for us. Professional team with expert guidance, Ben and Cydney helped us through every aspect of the process. Resulting in a very quick turnaround with an excellent offer, exceeding all our expectations. We highly recommend Ben and Cydney.

Randy and Colleen


From our first meeting with Ben, we knew that we could trust him with the sale of our home. He is friendly, experienced, efficient, and a great communicator.His team gave us great advice and direction on how to prepare our home for sale. We were downsizing and we needed to do quite a bit of decluttering. Ben and Cydney brought in a team of kind, trustworthy people to help us with that process. We couldn’t have done it without them.From day 1, Ben had a complete plan for our home sale. He quickly understood our circumstances and was very knowledgeable about the market so he knew how to price and time the sale accordingly. We appreciated that he answered all our questions, and made us feel comfortable during the sale process.We were working with a very compressed timeline. With Ben’s support, our home was listed quickly (with gorgeous photos courtesy of his photographers). Our home sold in a matter of hours. We were very pleased to work with Ben. A friend recommended him to us, and we will recommend him to all our friends.

Bernadette, Greg and Janina


We recently just purchased our first home with Cydney’s help. We were referred to Cydney through a family friend and we are so thankful for that. From day one Cydney was upbeat, cheerful, kind, caring and professional. She kept us calm through the stresses of buying a home and always made us feel like her number one priority. She knew exactly what we wanted and never fell short of making sure that is what we received. She went above and beyond to get us into our forever home and we couldn’t be more grateful for her. Thank you Cydney from the bottom of our hearts we couldn’t be happier at our new farm and we highly recommend you to anyone looking to purchase a home.

Kevin, Lauren and Colton Fitzpatrick


We recently had the great pleasure of working with Cydney Green to sell our home in Richmond. We have lived in the same home for over 25 years making the decision to sell difficult and the experience an emotional one. We have known Cydney since 1994 and value her experience and integrity. Our decision to work with Cydney to sell our home was a very easy one to make.Cydney came highly recommended to us and she successfully helped us find our new home too. You will be our first choice next time too. Thank you again Cydney.

Bruce and Barb Nairn


I recently worked with Ben to sell my Mom’s home; a difficult and emotional experience for me. From the beginning and throughout the process, Ben was compassionate and professional.Ben provided excellent end-to-end service including, but not limited to, a home assessment, the development and evolution of marketing strategies and the sale of the home.Ben is very personable and knowledgeable and has great negotiating skills; assets in my view that are essential when working with a real estate agent.I always felt Ben had my best interests at heart and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a class-act realtor.

Kim M.


Ben Wightman took care of the sale of our home in an extremely competent and professional manner. First and foremost, we were impressed by his genuine nature and personable approach. We always felt he had our very best interests in mind. He utilized the latest technological and innovative methods to help promote the sale. His vast experience and expertise were consistently displayed as he seamlessly overcame problem areas thoroughly and expeditiously. We have sold a number homes over the years. Ben is a man of integrity, and is clearly in an exalted league of his own in comparison to all other sales representatives we have experienced. He is the best of the best in our opinion. We would give Ben the highest possible recommendation to anyone planning to sell a home.

Jerry Mayer


I worked with Ben to purchase my very first home and he was incredible! He helped me every step of the way, in a tough market and we found my dream house! He is so knowledgeable, thorough, and an absolute pleasure to work with. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Hayley James


Ben was great and helpful in all the steps of the process of purchasing our house. Definitely recommend.

Peter Goddard


As being someone who has not been involved with the house market for twenty five years, right from the time of our first meeting, Ben and Cydney were honest and direct. They explained to me how the process would unfold so l wouldn’t be surprised, and recommended things that l could do to help with the sale. When it came to setting an asking price, they always listened to my thoughts. In those discussions it quickly became obvious that they knew their market and the players in local real estate. Their numerous showings of the house were comprehensive and beneficial in making this sale happen.It was during this time, the sudden outbreak of the coronavirus happened, they explained the shift in the market and the possible delay in selling. It is no exaggeration that selling a house is a stressful endeavor both emotionally and fiscally. They provided the support and confidence needed to know things would work out. Through it all they were Realtors who were clearly a partner and a friend. For all of these reasons this is why l can unconditionally recommend Ben and Cydney to my friends and acquaintances.

Alan Roberston


My family recently chose Ben to help us sell our parent’s home and the experience was wonderful from start to finish. It was a stressful time moving my parents and preparing the house for sale but Ben helped immensely by organising painters and a stager, both of whom did a spectacular job. He had an impressive marketing plan which resulted in a very successful open house and a full price offer. We are more than happy with the results and highly recommend Ben and his team.

Heather Knight


Unwaveringly present, competent, and effective. I was blown away by Ben’s professionalism and attention to detail throughout the whole process. I have total confidence in my realtor and his ability to follow through. An absolute pleasure to work with!

Matthew and Renate


It was a pleasure having Ben and Cydney represent us through the process of selling our home. Their market knowledge and advice from our first meeting through the final offer was incredible. Ben and Cydney and their team helped with renovations, staging and recommended a good real estate lawyer. The sale was incredibly quick and we received a great offer. Selling a home can be a stressful time and Ben and Cydney were there every step of the way to ensure we were as comfortable as possible.

Darren and Tanja O’Connell


Ben helped me sell a townhouse and purchase a condo. The condo purchase went really smoothly. I was worried about the process of selling my house as there had been some issues to address. Ben laid out a reasonable set of fixes to make and coordinated all of the work.He was able to reduce the overall stress involved in the process a lot and gave what I felt was very reasonable advice. The house also managed to sell for a good deal more than I had been expecting based on comparable properties and I attribute that to Ben’s efforts.I will definitely recommend him to others in the future!

Brian Fetter


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.

Brian Woodland


Congratulations Ben, another successful sale for the Scott’s. Your strategy was perfect and we were able to sell our home in one day, above asking, with all conditions removed in ten days….incredible. You asked us to trust you and are we glad we did. Thank you again for making the process so easy and painless. You are a true professional.

Mary and Rob Scott


We had a fantastic experience working with Ben, who supported us for almost 5 years of searching for the right home in the right neighborhood. He is very knowledgeable of homes and the market, and was quick to give us information on upcoming properties that might fit our criteria. When we found the right house, Ben guided us through the best approach to be the successful buyer in a competitive situation, then quickly turned his focus from buying to selling our existing home, which was accomplished in 5 days at $20k over asking. We highly recommend Ben and his team!

Stephen Larock


I was so nervous about selling my house but Ben made sure everything went smoothly. My house was only on the market for a couple days and it sold for a much higher price than I expected! I couldn’t have asked for a better Realtor!

Lynn Sheppard


Ben was amazing to work with. He’s very organized and knowledgeable with respect to the City and it’s neighborhoods. Most important to us was how responsive Ben was during our search. If ever we had questions he would respond quickly with a clear and meaningful answer. He made our search for a new house in a new city stress free.

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.

Jordy + Sara


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.

Jonathan


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.

Sarah


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.

Anita


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!

Diedre


Amazing service, Ben is very helpful and knowledgeable.

Deb Murray


Ben is completely approachable with a fantastic wealth of knowledge. Totally recommend him and his service couldn’t be more impressed.

Colin Beaudry


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.

Jordan Bennett


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!

Peter Nasr


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.

Patrick McNairnay


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.

Penny White


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.

Lindsay Robinson


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.

Bev Lasalle


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.

Rachel


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.

Jamie K


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+

Alexander Hernen


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.

Rosemary & Peter


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.

Colin Pritchard


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.
