Ryan is an awesome real estate professional. He's not pushy(!!!), he's patient and provides his clients with sound professional advice. I had a great experience using Ryan to purchase a home and I'm sure your experience will be the same. Thanks again Ryan!
Ryan sold my condo at 134 York quickly and working with him was great. He went above the call of duty every step of the way. He was patient and strategic for a sale that proved to have many complicated elements. I am pretty sure that if it weren't for Ryan, my condo would still be up for sale. I highly recommend Ryan as an agent, and especially for selling a condo in 134 York. Thanks for all of your hard and effective work, Ryan.

My wife and I have purchased two properties with Ryan in recent years. We have been and remain very impressed with his professionalism and dedication. He is friendly, knowledgeable and responsive and always takes the necessary time to ensure that we understand and are comfortable with every facet of the transaction. Ryan makes buying a home a lot less stressful and we recommend him without hesitation

From the moment we contacted you through to the sale of our home, we could not of asked for better! As we had decided to list our home in the late winter which is not ideal time, you were very positive about the home selling quickly and you were correct. This was not the first time selling a home for us and yet this was by far the best experience one could ask for.
Thank you so much for making this a memory that will stand out for us. We appreciate all you have done for us and would recommend you to family and friends going forward as we are certain that they will have a similar experience as we did. If we ever go to sell again we will be sure to contact you.
Again, thank you for everything and we wish you all the best!
I am writing this letter to you today to advise you of the service that we received from one of your Real Estate agents Ryan Cole. This has been my third time working Ryan over the course of the last 10 years and by far this last interaction has been the best that I have experienced so far. To add some context to why I am taking the time to write this letter today, Ryan has helped me through a difficult experience of selling a home I owned during the breakdown of a marriage. Normally I would imagine that having to navigate these waters is difficult for a Real Estate agent but Ryan acted with the upmost professionalism and objectivity that one would expect in this scenario. Ryan also was responsible for brokering the purchase of my first home so he has been a part of my life for two very big occasions. Fast forward to 2014, I am with a new partner and we have decided to take the next step in our lives and establish a long term residence. I did not hesitate to contact Ryan given the last two interactions with him and I can honestly say that it was the best decision that I made when it came to purchasing another home for the third time. Ryan again was professional and his expertise in the Ottawa market really came through. It was only a short 2 months before Ryan had found the perfect property for us. I know that in the world of Real Estate agents are forced to balance their time between both sellers and buyers and their client list can be very long and demanding but never at any point did I feel like we were not a priority. In fact I would have to say that Ryan made us feel like we were the most important clients on his list. If the service he provided us is the same he provides to all of his clients I would argue to tell you that he is one of the best Real Estate agents in your organization. Ryan possesses an ability to make people feel comfortable, to gain their trust quickly and somehow in a short period of time understand 100% of your needs and your wants. Ryan literally found us the PERFECT home, and there were many to chose from! Royal Legape and Ryan Cole have clients for life in Jennifer and I and at any chance that I get to refer business to him I will. In this day and age where good people in are a dime a dozen I can tell you that you have one working and representing you well. I would not hesitate and plan to use Ryan for all of my Real Estate needs in the future and with many of our friends and family on the verge of Real Estate ventures you can trust that we will recommend that Ryan represent all of them. I hope that these words find their way to the most senior executives at Royal Lepage and that Ryan is publicly recognized within your organization."
"OMG We bought a house!!! LOL I keep saying that. Sometimes it seems so surreal that our dreams are coming true. Thank you for being a large part of that. It would have never been as easy as it was without you. Thank you for your unlimited advice and expertise. It is one thing to have someone advocate for you, but it adds a whole other element when you trust that person to look out for your best interests. I thank you so much for taking it that one step further. I appreciate your patience with me as a first time home buyer you really helped calm my concerns and fears and made it so much fun.”
"We recently worked with Ryan Cole to sell our current house and purchase a new home, all within a short 3 weeks! We planned to interview a number of different realtors but after meeting with Ryan we knew we needed to look no further. Ryan came prepared with useful, relevant and specific information and made us feel completely comfortable. From that point on he was always accessible and was nothing but professional. He patiently brought us to several showings, offering thoughtful, pressure-free advice. Donna Cole was also an excellent resource and her staging advice added to the quick sale of our home. Without hesitation, we would recommend the Cole Connection to anyone we know looking to buy or sell a home. Thank you Ryan and Donna for making this process enjoyable and stress-free, we can't wait to move into our new home!"

"We have been so pleased with your support, guidance and attention to detail over the past several months. Buying a home can be a trying experience, particularly when dealing with specific wants within a limited budget. We extend big thanks to Ryan Cole and his team. What we appreciate most is your understanding of our needs and the professionalism you exhibited throughout the process. Thank you again for all you have done to help us find our perfect home."

"Dear Ryan, I just wanted to say thank you for your considerable time and help during the purchase and sale of our houses. We were not sure we even wanted to move, but with your patience and knowledge of the market, we found the perfect house. It was a whirlwind experience, but with your guidance and help we managed to purchase and sell an house in less than a month. We took all of your suggestions for staging our house, and it certainly paid off. Our house sold in 3 days, even before it hit the MLS site, for the asking price (the most our model of townhouse had ever sold for). WOW! I still cannot believe it was that fast and painless. We bought our first house from Bob 8 years ago, you are an amazing chip off the block. We will definitely recommend you to any of our friends looking to move or sell. Your team is amazing! Thanks for all the hard work and dedication."
"I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for your expertise, cooperation and patience. This was a pleasure doing business with you and rest assured that I will recommend Ryan Cole to my relatives and friends."
"Thank you so much for helping us find the perfect home. Andre and I are enjoying every minute here. We appreciated your enthusiasm, good humour, attention to detail and helpful nature. We consider ourselves lucky to have found you while visiting an open house! Once again, thank you!"
"Ryan, we want to say that we are SO happy with the house we have found! You had provided us with great service, really went above & beyond for us & we really appreciate that! We would recommend your service to anyone & everyone. Thanks so much for helping us find our new home!"

"Ryan, just a quick note to say thank you very much for your time and considerable effort in helping us find a home in Ottawa. Your genuine nature and sense of humour made the process enjoyable and we won't hesitate to use your services in the future or to recommend you to our family and friends!"
"Purchasing your first home can be an overwhelming experience. Ryan made our experience as stress free as possible and was always there to answer any questions we had. From the beginning, Ryan was attentive to our needs and wants in a home and played a key role in guiding us towards what would truly suit us and our situation. He presented us with various options and helped us to realize the features of a home that we would truly be happy with. Even months after, when we required assistance Ryan was there to help us out. Thank you Ryan, we will definitely be spreading the word about your outstanding service!!!"

"We will not hesitate to recommend you to any of our friends in the future. You and Ryan made a good team."

“I had the pleasure of employing Ryan when I came out to Ottawa 2 years ago in order to purchase a home. Once he was aware of my requirements and desires, he was superbly prepared for my arrival. His team presented a highly accurate market evaluation of Ottawa Real Estate, had print outs of all the houses that he felt fell within my criteria at the ready and he was able to discuss their attributes and faults at length. While looking at the myriad of homes available, he provided sage guidance and insight into some of the pitfalls and many of the brighter merits of owing a house in Ottawa. He was very familiar with all the areas of the city and surroundings that we looked in and as the days progressed recommended Orleans as an excellent place to live. On that advice we looked and quickly found a very comfortable home for myself and family. In a word, he was a superlative representative on my behalf! Being extremely pleased with the purchasing side of the house market, Ryan was recently called upon again, this time to sell my house. Ryan and team provided excellent service and outstanding advice in getting ready for the sale. He provided a seasoned and learned market evaluation that led to a reasonable price to initially start with. I would have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised when the house sold in less than 9 days and at a very fair price, higher than I really expected! To accomplish this, Ryan had listed the house on MLS as well as on his excellent website and was preparing to hold open houses as necessary to get traffic through the house. I suspect that he may have bent some ears on the phone, to ensure that they were aware of the listing, because there were always scheduled showings daily. Potential purchasers were scheduled by the Royal Lepage office, who were always courteous and responded positively to my eclectic needs (read 4 dogs).
If anyone is looking for a true Real Estate professional, who is ethical, bright, outgoing and above all, not pushy!, and will definitely work extremely hard to assist you into the house that meets your criteria and dreams, then Ryan Cole and his team should be first on your list to contact. If I ever get a chance to return to Ottawa, he'll definitely hear from me!”
I had a great experience with the Cole Connection Team. Ryan was very professional, knowledgeable, and punctual. Even though the price range I was looking in was on the lower end, he was always available on short notice and quick to act when necessary. I would definitely recommend Ryan, and would work with him again if I buy another house in Ottawa.
"My wife Amy and I had a chance to work with Ryan for our first ever home purchase several years ago. Knowing that we were new to the market Ryan was amazing at going over every aspect of the buying process, making sure we were comfortable and confident in what we were doing. It was great to have an agent that listened to what it was we were looking for and worked hard at finding options that we right for us. With Ryan’s help we were able to find the perfect spot for us and we didn’t look back. The follow up service after the purchase was great. Ryan made regular contact with us and always was checking in to see how things were going. Four years later when it was time to sell and move on to bigger and better things we did not hesitate to call Ryan right away. We were a little bit nervous being first time sellers but with Ryan and Donna's help our condo was listed and sold in a week. It was really amazing and I would recommend the Cole family to anyone looking for an agent. Thank you both for making our home buying and selling experience a great one!!"

"Working with Ryan was nothing less than an exciting experience. Ryan spoke with me and understood what I was looking for and he made it happen. Ryan selected properties that sparked my interested, viewed them with me and gave me tips and ideas that would benefit my purchase. With the limited amount of time I had to work with, Ryan was very professional and assured all deadlines were met. With Ryan’s accuracy, I was able to make a secure and comfortable purchase. If you are looking to buy or sell a home – you should not do it without consulting Ryan first!"
"Working with Ryan for our home purchase was a pleasure from start to finish. As relative strangers to Ottawa, we were home-shopping from a different city and needed to locate something in a matter of weeks. Ryan had a unique aptitude for turning vague preferences like "character," "peaceful" and "convenient" into concrete search criteria that could deliver homes that aligned with our interests. He was able to glean our specific criteria during a few short conversations over the phone, creatively suggesting options that we had not considered ourselves. He used that information to narrow our search down during our few short trips to Ottawa, helping us to avoid wasting time viewing properties that were sure to be a poor fit. Once we met in person, Ryan took the time to familiarize us with the different neighborhoods and discuss our needs further to streamline the process. From there, the process took off, with Ryan quickly honing down the search until we landed on our ideal home. We had to act quickly, and Ryan orchestrated the showing and offer in such a way that we were under agreement in a matter of days. The entire process, from initial phone call to signed offer on our dream house, took only three weeks. Ryan delivered so far beyond our expectations that we would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. In fact, in this market you would probably be at a disadvantage using another agent. Every real estate agent must have intimate knowledge of their home territory, but it is rare when an agent also has the ability to quickly and accurately understand their clients' needs and put that knowledge into action. Thanks again, Ryan!"
