"After a long search for a real estate agent, we came across Mathieu’s webpage. An impressive background with lots of satisfied clients and his extensive experience in real estate market caused us to schedule our first meeting with him. We also interviewed couple other agents but we decided to sign a contract with Matt. One thing that strikes us the most about him was his calm and friendly nature and his professional approach in dealing with his clients. He was always early in our appointments and he had a clear plan for his showings and he was always driving us to his showings which gave us a better chance to look at the neighbourhoods. In each showing, he asked us what we liked and didn’t like about the house and he did his best to find us our dream house. Mathieu is also very resourceful, he has a contact for anything you might need in the process and he knows exactly where to get extra information for you. He had our best interest in mind in closing the deal and his excellent negotiation skills with the seller helped us to get our dream house with an excellent price.
We had a great experience working with Matt and we highly recommend him and his services."

As first time homebuyers, we were very happy we decided to go with Mathieu Bedirian as our real-estate agent. Not only did he respond quickly to our every request, he also sat us down at the beginning of our search to explain all the steps in buying a home. Since we were new to the real estate world, he also gave us great recommendations for a mortgage broker, home inspector, and lawyer. He was able to find us exactly what we were looking for (and under budget!). We valued how quick he was able to act – getting us a showing for our house in under a day of it being put on the market, and meeting a few hours later when we decided we wanted to put an offer in. His experience was key in negotiating a price that we were very happy with. We would definitely recommend anyone looking to purchase a home to give Mathieu a call.

We were really pleased with Mathieu's service. He listened to our needs and was always available when we needed him. Even when we were changing our priorities/needs, we never felt any pressure from him. It took us some time to find exactly what we wanted but now we are glad it did as we didn't settle for something else. Even after the sale, he remains available for questions and assistance. We will definitely work with Mathieu again.

"After several efforts in trying to sell my home, I was a bit discouraged and didn’t know what direction to take. The house was an amazing, unique property with many perks, it didn’t make sense. Neighbours strongly recommended Mathieu Bedirian. They espoused his honesty and integrity and how professional he is. As it turned out, that was an understatement. Mathieu is not only professional on the highest level I have ever seen, but hardworking, positive, and willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done. He truly went Above and Beyond for me throughout the entire process. He is also an educator and takes the time to make sure I understand everything and provided me with excellent advice. This entire experience can be so overwhelming and you walked me through every step of the way. You truly are marvelous not only at what you do, but who you are. Thank you so much for all of your hard work and dedication. I will definitely recommend you to anyone I know who is looking to buy or sell."
"Working with Matt made our first home buying experience very easy. He was very helpful in explaining the steps that need to be taken in finding and finalizing the sale of the house. He was very patient and listened to our preferences and answered our many questions that came with being a first time home buyer. Matt also connected us with the appropriate contacts in finalizing the sale. We highly recommend this wonderful real estate agent!"

"We signed with Mathieu Bedirian (Keller Williams Ottawa Realty) in February 2006 to be the real estate agent for the sale of our home in Kanata. Mathieu worked with us to sell and subsequently purchase our new home, he consistently demonstrated all of the above stated qualities and more, and I heartily endorse him for any real estate business. Mathieu is reliable, dedicated and eternally upbeat. His ability to calm us when we became nervous or frustrated during this very stressful period was outstanding. Mathieu consistently met or surpassed all our requests and was very accurate and thorough."
"When we decided to buy our first house I knew that it would be important to find the right real estate agent for us. I really wanted to work with someone that would really try to understand our needs, be patient with us and really be a guide to us throughout the whole process. From the onset I was really impressed with Mathieu. He took the time to explain all of our options, the process of buying a house and then went on to spend a large proportion of his time finding out exactly what we were looking for. He was extremely patient and professional during the process and was always around to ask us lots of question. This really helped us decide what we were actually looking for. Mathieu made himself available to work around our schedule and made the whole house buying process easy and enjoyable. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mathieu to anyone looking to buy or sell property"

"Working with Mathieu Bedirian in finding my dream home was fantastic. His availability, enthusiasm and punctuality did not go unnoticed. Mathieu loves what he does, and this is clearly demonstrated through his work. I trusted his opinions, comments and concerns. I will not hesitate to recommend Mathieu to anyone looking into buying a home, nor will I hesitate to contact him when the time comes to purchase my next property."
I just wanted you to know that you made our house hunting trip a smoother than expected experience. The prospect of buying a house in seven days in a strange city that we didn’t know was daunting but your presence made me feel much more relaxed and assured that it would be successful. I found you to be sincere and professional, attentive to our specific needs, efficient and pro-active. Specifically, I appreciated how you gave us an unbiased opinion on the houses we looked at and how you showed us things that we might not have known to look for so that we could clearly consider all of the options and make an informed decision. Your attitude portrayed that you had our best interest in mind at all times and this is something that is very important in real estate or any other commission based sales. I would definitely refer you with confidence to anyone who needs to buy or sell a home.

Dear Mathieu Bedirian,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the assistance you provided me with my recent real estate needs.
I appreciate the information and advice you have given, as well as the MLS listings you provided me. Your performance, professionalism and attitude in meeting all of my needs, in a timely manner, far exceeded my customer care and after care expectations.
I have already referred you to a friend and will continue to refer your services to any who are looking for a reliable Real Estate Agent.
"As a first time buyer, I had many questions about the process and worries about finding a home for good value. Mathieu guided me through each step of the process and shared his knowledge and tips when we viewed each home. Even though I was picky and was searching for a home in a "sellers market", Mathieu was patient and reassuring. It was also very valuable that he had established and trusted contacts for lawyers and home inspectors; it would have been more difficult to find these resources on my own. I would gladly recommend Mathieu to anyone looking to buy or sell."
Letter to my boss:
Parick - I would like you to know of the awesome expertise and help that we had received from Matt Bedirian from your office. We were looking for a condo in Ottawa for my son as he will be finishing off his medical doctor intern duties for the next five years at the Ottawa General Hospital and the Civic Hospital.
We had contacted your office for assistance as we were flying in from Edmonton and Matt had responded to our call. Following our flight in early April, Matt met with us and reviewed our needs. He quickly made arrangements to view about two dozen properties knowing that we were only available for the next four days. He provided us with a variety of choices on properties based upon our needs. After three days, we made a fair offer based upon Matt's research on recent properties sold for similar type of condos. We were successful in closing the deal in four days.
Matt also made arrangements to get assistance for us in using a local lawyer to close the deal and provided guidance throughout the process.
Since we are in Edmonton and following the final possession date, Matt conducted a final inspection at our request to ensure that all of the contents of the fully furnished condo were intact using the previous photos that he had taken of the inside of the condo. As well, he made arrangements to have the locks changed for us.
I would like you to know that Matt went beyond the call of duty as a real estate agent!!!!
For Ever Grateful

Mathieu Bedirian has helped us out with our real estate needs on two very different occasions. In each case, Matt provided us with exceptional service and we were extremely pleased with the outcome.
The first time was in August 2007. We were ‘property virgins’ and we were looking into the possibility of owning our first home. We were your typical first-time homebuyers: had very high expectations, were not totally sure what we wanted, and were very indecisive. Matt definitely had his work cut out for him! As soon as we hired Matt as our agent he got to work right away. He asked us all the right questions in order to determine our wants and needs, and helped us establish an appropriate price range for potential houses. We looked at a ton of houses, and Matt was extremely patient and flexible in accommodating our busy schedules. Based on his experience and knowledge, Matt provided us with helpful observations as to potential areas within different houses where we could invest in repairs that would increase the value of the home. He was also quick to point out things that did not look quite right in certain houses. He was truly looking out for our best interest. In the end, Matt found us the right house, in the right neighbourhood, with the right specifications and at the right price. His strong negotiation skills allowed us to sign the contract for approximately $12,000 less than the asking price. We were absolutely thrilled! We feel so lucky to now be living in the house of our dreams and we owe it all to Matt.
Mathieu most recently (August 2010), assisted our family with the sale of my late Father’s home; an Estate Sale. This was a very difficult time for our family, but Matt’s caring attitude and strong work ethic got us through it. Matt offered suggestions as to what repairs we should and shouldn’t do that would increase the value of the home. He also helped us stage the home to make it seem more inviting. Matt also spent a lot of time putting together a comprehensive market analysis report, and presented his findings to our family. We then discussed with Matt various pricing alternatives and decided on a high, but fair price. Matt’s idea to have two back to back open houses as the house went on the market was excellent. We were thrilled to receive three strong offers in the first two days of showings. The house sold for approximately $10,000 above the asking price. As he drafted the contract, Matt knew the special clauses that needed to be included in order to protect the seller’s interest in an Estate Sale. One might think that selling a home would be one of the most difficult and stressful things in executing a person’s estate. Thanks to Matt, it was one of the easiest things to complete.
The next time we, or someone we know needs a real estate agent, we will not hesitate to call or refer them to Mathieu Bedirian. He is honest, professional, reliable, and not only is he a great agent, he is also a good person. This is why we call him “My agent Matt”.

When my fiancé & I were looking for a real estate agent, efficiency was number one on our list. We wanted to work with someone who would work around our schedule, who was quick, to the point & honest. We were advised to talk with Mathieu Bedirian of Keller Williams Realty. Mathieu quickly exceeded our expectations.
Our schedule was such that the only time we could look for our first home was later in the evenings throughout the week or early mornings on the weekend. In spite of that, Mathieu was more than accommodating to our schedule & happily worked around it. We were always in constant contact with Mathieu & hardly waited longer than an hour for a return call or e-mail. We know his office is successful but this made my fiancé & I feel like we were his only clients & that he was truly committed & driven to find us our first home.
In addition to him being easy to get a hold of, & willing to accommodate our schedule, he was easy to get along with & down to earth. He made our first home buying experience a pleasant & knowledgeable one. We would highly recommend his service!
