As the COVID-19 pandemic is causing the real estate industry to explore more virtual components to buying and selling homes, we want to share our recent remote house-hunting experience working with Wendy.
We began our house search last winter, when the market was still “normal”, however, our search was entirely remote, as we were moving to Ottawa from out-of-province and had limited budget for the move. Wendy was absolutely amazing throughout the process, and we couldn’t have asked for a better realtor to help us find a perfect home, without seeing it in person!
Wendy did an wonderful job from the start to get to know us through Skype and FaceTime, as well as emails and phone calls. By taking that time, we felt that she understood us and could tell the kind of place we were looking for. It also really helped us know that we could trust her to be our eyes during virtual tours. Wendy’s commentary during virtual showings was so valuable, allowing us to visualize the houses beyond what the camera could show. We appreciated being able to trust her fair assessment of some aspects of the houses that didn't show up well on camera.
Wendy is hard-working, resourceful and responsive. She was able to quickly answer all our questions—and as first-time home-buyers new to Ottawa, we had a lot! She was a wealth of information, not only for the home-buying process, but also home ownership, renovations, and general questions about life in Ottawa.
We would highly recommend Wendy as a realtor. In our experience with a remote housing search, there is so much more to it than just holding a camera. Wendy’s experience, trustworthiness, attention to detail, and ability to understand her clients is incredibly valuable and would be a tremendous asset to anyone buying a home remotely. - Kesia M.
We would like to recommend the services of Ms. Wendy Ronberg, an exceptional real estate agent. We were a young couple looking to buy a property for the first time at a particularly difficult time for buyers (December 2019). We first met Wendy at a Sunday open-house event in Barrhaven. Even though we were not her clients at the time, she was very kind and patient to explain the basics of real estate purchase to us. She made us feel comfortable and prepared for the biddings to come. Soon we were impressed by her work ethics, her knowledge, the pleasant manner she interacted with everybody, and we formally asked her to be our buyer's agent. During the time we worked with her, Wendy was always knowledgable about the real estate market and all kinds of houses, gave us very timely information, encouraged us and took us to visit various houses in order to develop a good sense of what we wish to buy. By January 2020, we chose to settle in a different city due to personal reasons, and therefore could no longer buy a house in Barrhaven. But we shall not forget Wendy's professionalism and dedication, and would gladly choose her to be our agent again if we return to the area. Thank you so much Wendy!
