By: Carol and David K. State St Central Park – Sold in two days way over asking price!

We listed our home in the Central Park area of Ottawa with Franco because of his proactive, professional approach. He had a clear marketing strategy, acted quickly and the outcome far exceeded our expectations. Franco is knowledgeable, responsive and friendly and he made us feel our listing was his top priority. Thank you, Franco!

Franco is a highly experienced real estate agent with sharp business acumen and a sound understanding of the Ottawa real estate market. Consequently, he was able to answer all of my questions, allowing me to make informed decisions with confidence. One aspect that I also very much appreciated is his responsiveness. He always responded to my calls and emails within minutes and was always available to meet up to discuss our approach to preparing and putting the house on the market. This includes making his network of service contacts available to me to help me get my house ready for fetching the highest price. I would not hesitate to recommend Franco to any looking to buy or sell a property, and would myself use him again.

I recently purchased my first property and it would not be possible without Franco. When looking for a real estate agent, I wanted someone who was honest and who was willing to put the work in to find the property that was perfect for me. That is exactly what i got with Franco. I never felt pressured to buy anything if I didn’t feel that it was the right fit. Franco took the time out of his day to help me understand how the buying process works and what to expect. He helped me get a fantastic deal on a property and he continues to check on me to see how things are going. I could not of asked for the buying process to have gone more smoothly, thanks to Franco. Franco is everything that you want in a real estate agent. He’s honest, caring, and knows how and where to find the best deals. He will make sure that you are completely satisfied and will never try to just make a sale for his own benefit. I not only found a fantastic agent in Franco, but a great friend as well. I look forward to our next deal!!

“As first time home buyers, Jen and I felt extremely fortunate to have teamed up with Franco. Franco was with us every step of the way; we benefitted from his experience, positive demeanour, and his tireless efforts. Jen and I truly feel that our favourable home-buying experience, is a direct reflexion of the care that Franco Ippolito has for his clients – for best results, go with the best!”

Being a first time home buyer is a very overwhelming experience. My fiancé and I wanted a realtor, who was with us every step of the way, involved, understanding, and educated us on what to look for in a home. Franco made it easy for us since day one, he answered every question we asked, was incredible flexible, and was very knowledgeable. When we had a moment of panic wondering if we could really take on this big responsibility, he talked the two of us off the ledge. I am very thankful; I love our house and couldn’t imagine ourselves anywhere else. I will be recommending Franco to all my friends, and family. If I have to do this again in the future, Franco would be the first person I’d call.

We are incredibly grateful to Franco for helping our family with the sale of our home. Having gone through a difficult and unsuccessful experience of trying to sell our home ourselves last Summer (for sale by owner), we were dreading to go through it again. But, we decided that if we are to enlist the help of a professional, we should choose the person who is the best in this field – an agent with the most sales, experience and positive reviews. This person is Franco Ippolito. Franco’s wealth of connections to potential clients, incredible negotiating skills and passion for real estate are just some of the qualities that left my husband and I so impressed. More than that, his eye for detail and aesthetics in a home were truly educational for us. We listened to all of his advice and got things done exactly to his recommendations. Our home was sale-ready and proved to be quite a hot commodity with the many offers we had received. Thank you Franco for making this experience for us not just successful but also fun and enjoyable!

This past fall and winter our family bought a new house and sold our old house. We feel so fortunate that we had Franco’s expertise and support throughout the process; it is thanks to his talent and dedication that everything went so smoothly! This past October we found a detached house we loved in a perfect neighbourhood…but there were already two offers on the home. Franco was undaunted. His approach was perfect: We won the sellers over and they accepted our offer without any further negotiations. We moved into our new house over the holidays and then turned our attention to preparing our old house for sale. Again, Franco’s enthusiasm, acumen, and knowledge of the housing market were indispensable. Franco used social media to create an interest in our home and then listed it at a fair price. This was a winning strategy: We got eight offers all above asking price, and sold the house in less than three days with a short closing date. It was a joy getting to know Franco and working with him. He is personable, thoughtful and clearly loves what he does….and he excels at it! We highly recommend Franco. He shows exceptional commitment to his clients; throughout the process of buying one house and selling another, we always felt that we were in good hands!

When you are buying a house one needs to surround oneself with true professionals, people you can trust and totally rely on. People you can call on at almost any time of day. My wife and I were very fortunate to come across what we consider a rare breed in the real estate world : Franco Ippolito of Re/Max Hallmark Realty Group Franco Ippolito is a totally dedicated, honest, knowledgeable and reliable real estate agent superior to many we have come across during our many real estate transactions throughout the years. What we enjoyed and appreciated about Franco was that he knew this particular house listing very well. He was candid and up front when we bombarded him with concerns and questions we had about the house, guiding us through the process of making an offer which eventually materialized to a mutual satisfaction. My wife and I have no hesitations whatsoever in recommending Franco Ippolito to anyone wanting to purchase, sell and/or rent a home. Franco Ippolito and ReMax are true champions of professionalism, honesty, flexibility and availability! Together they make an unparalleled team!

We bought our first Dream Home through Franco. He was very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. Franco made our buying experience seem very easy and straightforward. He was always available for any calls, questions or concerns we had. We highly recommend him.

Franco was highly recommended to us and we were not disappointed. He is a real professional; he knows his business and took the time to ensure that we were at ease throughout the process, answering all our questions and putting no pressure. The whole process went extremely smoothly with great results for us as sellers; the advertising material was excellent (pictures and 3D video) and obviously attracted a lot of interest quickly. Within a week the condo was sold. It is now our turn to strongly recommend Franco.

In 2017, Franco assisted our family to buy one house and sell another. We so appreciated his professional support and attention to detail in these real estate transactions that, when it came time to move my parents to a new condo building in May 2020, we knew, without a doubt, that Franco would make the whole process achievable and stress-free. My mother had a stroke in March 2020 and could no longer navigate the sunken living room in the condo she and my father shared for nearly 25 years. Our family had to face moving my parents to a new condo during the Covid-19 pandemic. Franco was undaunted. He and his real estate brokerage implemented health and safety and physical distancing policies seamlessly. With his characteristic positivity, Franco took us to see several condos until we found one that was perfectly suited to my parents’ new requirements. As in my family’s previous experience working with Franco, he was conscientious, patient, diligent and professional. We purchased the new condo in early May 2020, and, within a week, my parents’ previous condo was sold at a higher price than what we had thought possible considering the economic situation caused by the pandemic. Working with Franco we always feel that we are in good hands and that we can trust his approach and his advice. I continue to recommend Franco to friends and family and I always hear positive comments back from everyone who has worked with him.

A l’hiver 2021 j’ai eu besoin d’un agent bilingue pour vendre ma maison du Glebe. Franco m’a été recommandé et je ne regrette pas du tout mon choix! Dès ma première communication avec lui il a été efficace, rapide, professionnel, extrêmement respectueux et surtout rassurant! J’avais des travaux à faire et seulement 2 semaines pour les réaliser. Il m’a mis en contact avec des contracteurs afin que les taches soient exécutées rapidement et que je puisse obtenir le meilleur prix pour ma maison! La vente s’est fait en 24 heures et il m’a soutenu tout au long de cette transaction avec les conseils que seulement un agent de son expérience peut donner! Depuis la vente, j’ai eu besoin de son aide pour faire des changements et aussi obtenir des documents. Franco est toujours disponible pour répondre à tous mes besoins et me fourni son aide la journée même!! Je le recommande à tous et n’hésiterai pas à le recommander aux membres de ma famille et mes amis chers car je sais qu’il leur donnera un service de très grande qualité!
