Testimonials

Here are a few testimonials from some of Rod‘s recent clients.

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“We enlisted Rod Millar to help sell our home. He provided us with current market data, savvy social media skills and
a well mapped out selling strategy.  Rod communicated with us before, during and after the sale of our home in a straight forward and
clear manner.  Rod worked hard in all components of the sale and was a trusty guide from start to finish.”

“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.”

Sincerely,
Angjelo L.

“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”

“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.”

Matt and Alex 
“Rod became our selling agent in May this year.  I must say I was blown away by the conscientious way he approached the transaction. His attention to detail was admirable. He was happy to work within our parameters. He communicated every facet to us as things developed. His advice to us during negotiations was wise, and his negotiating skill was remarkable. He was able to achieve the closing price we wanted and he achieved that within fifteen days of listing. 
 
A few months after closing, we learned that, except for one other that had undergone major renovations, our home brought the highest closing price of any in our area year-to-date. 
 
There is no doubt we would engage Rod at our next sale, if there were one. In the meantime, we would and have recommended him as their real estate agent to any of our friends who want top quality service.”

“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.”

“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!”

“Rod Millar provided service that I consider to be above and beyond. I had numerous questions which were all answered quickly and in a manner that made the entire purchase process transparent and understandable. I would not hesitate to recommend Rod Millar to any family member or close friend. I would feel confident that their interests would be in very good hands.”
