“Rod was incredibly helpful in finding us our new home. His attention to detail and thorough market analysis made the home-buying process as stress-free as possible. While one of the buyers was two time zones behind, the other buyer in Ottawa, and the seller 6 time zones ahead, Rod was nonetheless able to keep negotiations and closing details clear and on schedule. His professionalism and initiative were very much appreciated.”
Here are a few testimonials from some of Rod‘s recent clients.
“Rod did an appraisal on my home that I needed done very quickly. Rod came over, looked around my home, made notes, asked lots of informative questions and took photos. Within two days he came back with the appraisal that was well presented, written and very professional. A few months later I ask Rod to be my agent to sell my home. He had a wealth of knowledgeable tips on how best to present my home for selling. Rod went through my home, provided initial guidance on what needed to be addressed and then brought in a home stager to identify best furniture layouts, provide some staging accessories etc. My home was successfully sold in a few days. In my opinion l would not hesitate to highly recommend Rod to anyone looking for a real estate agent in the Ottawa and surrounding areas.”
“Rod was a pleasure to work with. He is very personable, knowledgeable and professional. He took his time to understand what our needs were and provided us with options that made sense. He was also very helpful in negotiating the sale of our property in a multiple offer situation. Rod was also always available to answer our questions.”
“From the start, Rod was actively engaged and readily available to sell my house providing the guidance, knowledge, and answers to my questions that you should expect from a reliable real estate professional.”
“When I decided to look for a property in November 2018, Rod Millar was the first person in the Real Estate Industry that came to my mind. Early in 2018, I was interested to buy a small farm and I came across Mr. Millar through his webpage. I contacted him via e-mail and his response was quick, clear and professional.
After few searches, my plans changed and as a result, I called the search off but kept receiving market updates from Mr. Millar. This was very important to me especially that he took his time with no financial gains to inform me about the market.
Then in November I decided to purchase a fully detached home and Rod Millar made the whole process pleasant and stress-free. His inside in the industry and experience, gave me confidence to place an offer on this property and one other. He was always right when it came to prices and procedures. Even after I purchased the house and the deal was closed, Mr. Millar did not hesitate to check with me to make sure all was good.
As a result of his hard work and kindness, I have already referred him to my co-workers and friends.
I will definitely use his service again the next time I buy a property in Ottawa. My only wish is that he stays in the job for many years to come.
Thank you for making this whole process pleasant.”
“Rod was very helpful in all aspects of the selling and purchasing process. He was always available to answer questions and his knowledge and expertise made me feel very comfortable with the decisions I had to make. I would highly recommend Rod for all aspects of the real estate market.“
“Rod was very personable and helpful . He treated us with the utmost respect and was always there from start to finish of finding us a rental property”
“I have only great things to say about Rod Millar. He helped me find and lease a condo in centretown Ottawa. The rental market in Ottawa is surprisingly competitive, particularly when it comes to renting condos. It can be overwhelming to look, let alone apply and be accepted by an owner. Rod made the whole process so easy. He set up a search to fit my location parameters and must haves, he arranged and accompanied me on viewings, and most importantly, he was ready with the paperwork to submit it at a moments notice. And all this in the middle of a grueling and relentless Ottawa winter!! He is a wealth of information and talked me through various options. It was because of his flexibility, his asking the right questions, and his wording in filling out the rental application that I am happy in this condo I get to call my home”
“Rod Millar is someone I would definitely recommended to anyone selling their home. Rod made the very difficult process of listing, promoting, and showing our property less complicated and much less stressful. He completed a successful sale in a short time. Rod provided us with constant updating, guidance and support. Rod worked diligently to promote the home with both our rural community and the greater Ottawa area.
Throughout the process of selling and then buying a home, Rod demonstrated professionalism, excellent work ethic and compassionate understanding of all our needs. He assisted us in obtaining a very fair price for our home and used the best strategies to find us our next home. Rod ensured that our needs, requirements and priorities were met and negotiated terms that looked after our interests entirely.
If you are looking for a dedicated, hardworking and selfless Real Estate Agent who will work, long and difficult hours to make your goals a reality, we would strongly recommend Rod Millar of Coldwell Banker, First Ottawa Realty.”
“For a variety of reasons we decided to move our family to Ottawa from South Western Ontario. To accomplish this, we needed the help of a local real estate agent. We had been working with a great lady who, unfortunately, became unavailable to help just prior to our trip to Ottawa to view properties.
After some frantic all be it fruitless contacts with other agents, Rod Millar came to our rescue. I cannot say enough about the level of service he provided. What I can say is that without Rod we would not be living in Ottawa. His willingness to go that extra mile is a rare find these days. If you’re looking for a property in the Ottawa area, I would highly recommend you contact Rod first.”
“Rod has been truly exceptional and has been there for us every step of the way. I have never met someone who is as passionate, knowledgeable and patient as Rod is about this industry. On the plus side, he as a wonderful person and always has a smile on his face. I would highly recommend him for your future real estate needs”
“We were very picky about what we wanted in a house and Rod worked tirelessly with us to find us our dream home. He acted quickly and strategically in order to close our house deal in a very competitive housing market. We highly reccommend Rod for your real estate needs.”
“We tried to sell our house on our own last year (2018). We postponed selling and rented it for another year. Meanwhile, Rod Millar gave us advice on good timing to put the house on the market and the required preparation. It took less than a week to get a reasonable offer once it was on the market with Rod. We appreciated his great cooperation to complete the deal smoothly.”
“Rod was immensely helpful to us when we bought our first home. He was knowledgeable, had great insight, and always returned our emails quickly. If we ever pay off this mortgage, we will ask him to help us buy our next one!”
“Biggest thanks ever to Rod for not only selling my house but for making me feel like I was his only client. I had tried to sell my house on my own without success. I am so thankful that Rod stepped in to save the day. I cannot comment enough about the hard work he put in to selling my house. Rod is extremely professional, yet down to earth. He went above and beyond the call of duty. He is extremely didicated, motivated, informative, kind, and an absolute pleasure to work with. I would recommend Rod to anyone thinking about selling their home. Thank you Rod!”
“I met Rod at one of his open houses. At the time I was starting to look for an agent to help me both buy and sell and several agents were “chasing me” for business rather than expressing a real desire to help, I got the sense Rod was genuine, ethical and committed and I was right. My first impressions were correct; he was extremely patient with my difficult and frustrating search and that was quite appreciated. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.”
