Success Stories

Our success is driven by our client’s passion for great service.

awardDear Mary Lou, A big and sincere thank you for all your help and encouragement in selling our home. You provided us with such a degree of comfort and positivity. I thoroughly enjoyed our visits and regret all the trips to the city that you so graciously made! But, they sure paid off. Once more a big and sincere thank you from both of us. As ever. – Ray and Claudette

awardThank you all for all your work and support in getting us to this point. You have made the whole process very smooth and thank you for the calming phone calls and emails when John and I have been a little stressed. Now to find somewhere to live! – Lisa & John Bailey

awardAfter 25 years, we decided to sell our house and downsize.  This was a very stressful period for us.  We were really grateful to Mary Lou and Cuyler for helping us through this process.  They were honest and straightforward as to what we could expect.  They worked hard on our behalf within a reasonable time period particularly because our house was just above the average home price.  We highly recommend Mary Lou and her team to prospective home sellers or buyers.  – Judy & Kerry Maki

awardWe have bought and sold multiple properties through Mary Lou and her team.  Mary Lou provides top notch professional real estate expertise and advice.  She is truly one of the top agents in Ottawa.  We have recommended her to many friends and family. – Jackie & Sylvie

awardWe did not have an agent when we first started looking for our first home. Julia happened to be showing one of the homes we looked at. And after spending a bit of time with her we were so comfortable that we decided we would like her to continue helping us with our search. Super helpful and down to earth people. We were extremely happy working with Your Distinctive Homes Team. We recommend Julia to everyone and will continue to come to them for any of our real estate needs. – Kirsten Gutri & Sarah White

awardIt had been over thirty years since we had sold a home. Mary Lou and her team went our of their way to help us through this process by giving us detailed advice and guidance and sometimes holding our hand. Mary Lou’s constant grace and professionalism were greatly appreciated during this transition.  – Susan & Roy


Sylvie and I would like to express our thanks to you and your team for a job very well done. You did make it happen and there were no false promises. Thank you for your professional work and your kind words when it was necessary. – Sylvie & Louis

awardThe Distinctive Homes Team… they sold our home in 8 weeks and then sold our cottage in 2 weeks…first class photos, marketing and results….what more can you say… thank you ! – Michael & Elizabeth Davies, Dunrobin

awardI had the pleasure of working with Mary Lou and her team to sell my house this summer. They are an extremely professional bunch who took the stresses of selling a home away. Always available and offering sound advice in dealing with any issue that popped up. They even helped me find my new home. If you’re looking for a professional quick, stress-free sale of your home, I highly recommend them! Top notch all around. – Marcel P.

awardWe had an absolute wonderful experience working with Mary Lou and her team. She took the time to explain anything we wanted to know, was extremely accommodating on meeting times, is very honest, and you don’t get that “I really just want to sell you something” kind of vibe. Mary Lou is extremely knowledgeable of the real estate market, and if she doesn’t know an answer, she will make sure to find it. We have recommended Mary Lou and her team to any and everyone we know who is in the market for buying a home. Two couples we referred to Mary Lou have bought their homes and also couldn’t be happier. We are so very happy in our new home and could not recommend Mary Lou and her team more! – Jennie & Keegan

awardThank you to Mary Lou Morris and her team for their dynamism, professionalism, and efficiency during all the steps involved in buying a new house! No surprise, no bad news, no stress! A very pleasant experience! – Diane & André
