“If you are selling your home, now is the time to be patient as days on market return to more normal timeframes. There are still many Buyers out there, but with more choice, they have less pressure and may take their time. Even though interest rates are still quite reasonable from a historical perspective, consumers are adjusting to this new reality. The rising cost of all goods means people need time to evaluate and adapt their mindsets.”

Craig Dow turned that scary first time home buying process into a streamlined process. Always prompt with a great attention to detail. Good at asking the right questions to help you understand how you really feel. Patient and willing to work with you until the right property comes along. Quickly learns what you tend to like and dislike based off of your (sometimes non-verbal) reactions to previous showings. Works well under strict timelines and takes a lot of the stress out of the situation as he is prepared for seemingly anything and everything that could come up.

Craig helped me purchase my very first condo back in 2012. He was very patient, helpful and knowledgeable as he answered any and all questions and concerns that I had. He is very prompt, thorough and diligent in everything he does. He also provided me with many options for potential homes that he thought would suit my needs, which is why I didn't hesitate to ask him to be my realtor again when I moved last year. I have thoroughly enjoyed the smoothness and easiness both times that he has helped me and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a similar experience!

Craig has gone above and beyond my expectations. From the very first conversation, Craig was intuitive, caring, and patient. He was honest and upfront about everything. Anything he didn't know/wasn't aware of, he was willing to admit, find out and got back to me very promptly. I couldn't have asked for a better Realtor and very grateful for everything Craig has done for me.

We were looking for a rural home and had Craig drive us around the Ottawa Valley for a few months, usually taking up all hours of the evening. He was incredibly patient, kind and honest when it was needed. Our time with Craig was enjoyable, and when it came time to get down to business he was incredibly professional, answered all questions we had (we had a lot as first time home buyers). Because of Craig's advice, we were able to land our first dream home. I truly believe that if we didn't listen to Craig we may not be in the house we are in now. I will thank him forever for that. Thank you for being assertive and knowledgeable. I would absolutely recommend Craig to anyone purchasing a home.
