“I had the great pleasure of having Joanne as the real estate agent for the sale of my parent’s home. First, I should state that I did not know Joanne prior to this experience. Joanne was recommended by my sister. Joanne was interviewed as well as two other very experienced agents. Initially I did not believe Joanne had any chance of getting our business. Joanne impressed me with her energy and willingness to put in her time to deal with the many issues involved in making the sale happen, and she won the job. In the past, I have dealt with 5 commercial real estate purchases, 4 commercial sales and 2 residential purchases. The agents in all of these cases did a least an adequate job. Joanne was by far the best agent I have dealt with. Joanne is a very honest and a very hard worker. She promised much and indeed did what she promised and more. Joanne impressed me as she is very good with customers and very insightful in looking for ways to increase our sales opportunities. Joanne kept me informed of all details as we went along, and discussed with me the pros and cons of what we were doing. Joanne made many good suggestions during the process period to present the house in a better way. The sale was completed in 3 weeks with better terms and at a better price than we had hoped for. I would unconditionally recommend Joanne to anyone looking to sell or purchase a property. I enjoyed working with Joanne and would use her if I were to purchase or sell a property in the future.”
“Joanne Batchelor recently sold our house – a challenging property for a number of reasons. I would strongly recommend using Joanne to market your property because: Knowledge: Joanne had a detailed knowledge of our neighbourhood – the sales history of properties in the area, the type of buyers looking for properties in the neighbourhood and, very importantly, the market value of local houses. She also had a roster of prospective buyers to provide an initial list of potential buyers for the house. Dedication: Joanne worked very hard to maximize the marketing profile of our house. She was prepared to spend whatever time was required to obtain a fair price – she was not prepared to entertain offers that did not approach a realistic market value just to make a sale. Joanne was working for us to get the best price possible, not to a make a sale at the earliest opportunity. Experience: Joanne demonstrated her considerable experience as a realtor in guiding us through the sales process and the related maze of regulatory requirements. Personal character: Joanne at all times was fair, open and straightforward in her dealing with us and the agents of prospective buyers. In all transactions, she protected our interests and ensured that all dealings were beyond reproach. In a field which has recently been subject to considerable criticism for questionable practices, Joanne’s integrity and ethical grounding were outstanding and much appreciated. The bottom line: throughout the whole process of selling our house, we were very comfortable working with Joanne and appreciated and enjoyed her professionalism and personality in helping us achieve our sales target.”
“Words can’t begin to show my gratitude for everything you and your husband have done to help me through this process. Over and above the sale of the house, you helped me pare down to fit the new apartment, managed the garage sale and Kijiji sales. You even helped and did the bulk of toting everything away. Most of all through this stressful period, you have been there to support and guide me. It has been so reassuring to know that I have someone in my corner. In addition to having an amazing agent, I feel that I have a new friend. Once again, thank you so much!!
“As a single person with no immediate family in the area to help me, I greatly appreciated Joanne’s assistance in downsizing and preparing my house for showing. I found her energy, dedication, real estate knowledge and knowledge of the community invaluable. She also helped me sell items on Kijiji and found recipients for many of my donations. I would highly recommend her to any person wishing to buy or sell a home in the Ottawa area.”
“I am sincerely grateful to Joanne Batchelor for all her help in the staging, preparing for sale and the selling of my parents’ home. This was a home that my mother had lived in for more than 65 years (my dad until he passed away 17 years ago) so it had contents reflecting this. It was a difficult and very emotional time for me and Joanne certainly made the task a lot easier. I don’t know how I would have managed without her help. I would tell Joanne that my parents would have really liked her because she did not believe in throwing anything out if it could be used by someone. She organized several estate sales and attempted to sell all that she could. She also has a great knowledge and connections with several charitable organizations that benefitted from many items. Joanne has a very personable approach, respectful of belongings and highly energetic with a wonderful positive attitude. I knew I was in good hands with Joanne from the start as she demonstrated her professionalism and knowledge as a real estate agent. THANK YOU Joanne!”

“Right from the very first day we felt we could totally trust Joanne. And we were right. Joanne did everything she could to sell our condo and find us a new place quickly. Throughout the whole process Joanne was there to help and reassure us. She is very knowledgeable, professional, and caring: You are the BEST, Mrs. Batchelor. You are a godsend. May you continue to help people by putting their interests first. May God richly bless you and your family!”
Mrs and Mr Steve M
“Joanne has been a godsend for us. We had some difficulty with some projects and she stayed with us the whole time until we got our result. She never lost hope and gave us hope also. We couldn’t have done it without her help. She helped us with selling our house as well as articles that needed to be sold. It didn’t matter if she was busy, she always made time for us. She is also devoted to whatever she does. I would recommend her to anybody who needs to sell their house. Joanne, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your help and devotion. May God bless you with love”
“Joanne went well beyond her job as a real estate agent. Living 200 km from Ottawa where I had to sell my aunt’s house, I could not easily be there. Not only did Joanne keep an eye on the house, but mostly she was of enormous help to empty the house, which by the way was full with over 60 years of life. Through her extensive network, she either sold the contents or donated to charitable organizations, and organized garage sales, which really corresponded to my and my aunt’s values. We were glad that some items would serve others. Joanne is very energetic, enthusiastic, experienced, well-organized, cheerful, honest, among other qualities. She also has a very big heart: she often offered to take care of my aunt who now lives in a residence or do whatever to assist her or me when I could not be in Ottawa. Many thanks Joanne for all you did. No doubt I highly recommend her.”
“Thank you so much for all of your hard work, energy, good humor and unfailing optimism! I really appreciate and admire your efforts to sell not only the house, but furniture and other belongings. You perform a very valuable service for your clients (especially those of us who have difficulty parting with all of their “stuff”!)”
“There are no words to adequately communicate the comprehensiveness of the service Joanne provided, nor the great heartedness with which she took care of everything. Our mom was a pack rat. Neither my brother nor I live in Ottawa. I can’t imagine what the sale of mom’s house and contents would have been like with anyone other than Joanne. I’ve had some wonderful agents in the past, but Joanne’s logo “Here to Help” says it all. She not only said “I’ll take care of that” often, but followed through with relish, keeping us informed, consulting where necessary, and otherwise taking care of details large and small. Joanne was proactive, creative, knowledgeable, energetic, thorough, enthusiastic, a good listener and a great problem solver. And I still haven’t come close to describing how truly amazing she is. Joanne Batchelor is to real estate what Gretzky is to hockey.”
