We are very grateful that Irene was our realtor. During house tours when we were searching for our new home, she was honest with her opinion, but also gave us space to make decisions on our own. It was also helpful when her husband was with us for a bunch of tours because of his knowledge in construction and renovation. Irene was compassionate when our offers fell through, but was constantly fighting for us to get the best house for us. She listened to us and picked up what we were looking for, even when we were not so sure ourselves! We ended up getting a beautiful home that is bigger and better than we could ever imagine buying, but it was within our price point, in an area that was even more convenient than our previous list of “ideal” neighbourhoods, and met our needs exactly. Selling was quite a whirlwind, as the previous owners of the new house wanted a short closing date. So thanks to Irene and the amazing help of her assistant (and our friend) Christine, we were able to get our townhouse ready for showing in a few days. Moreover, we got a price for the house that was higher than we thought we would get, at the closing date that we wanted. Even after all the transactions were closed and we were moved in, Irene was caring and made sure we were settled and doing all right and offered to help us in whatever way she could. We highly recommend Irene as a realtor.

We would like to take this opportunity to compliment and thank Irene for the excellent role she played in helping us find our new home in Ottawa. Her knowledge of the market and patience in finding a perfect location and property were very much appreciated. We would certainly recommend Irene to any prospective sellers or buyers for the Ottawa and area market.
I was very satisfied with my experience with Irene Bilinski. She was knowledgeable, efficient and very patient. What I appreciated most was that Irene did not pressure me in any particular direction. Instead, she pointed out positives and some negatives related to each property, thus assisting me to make the decision that best suited my situation. Irene and her team ably supported and guided me in all steps of my purchase in a city that was unknown to me.

Last year, when we were looking to purchase a Condo in Ottawa, we were referred to Irene Bilinski from ReMax / Hallmark. While we were dealing with Irene, my wife and I have found her to be very professional, well informed, and especially to be a trustworthy person. Looking back in time, we are still impressed with the level of service that we received from her. We have already recommended her to a family-member and we will continue to do so with others.

First time home buyers, our experience with Irene surpassed our home buying expectations. She guided us through every step with calm and confidence. No pressure, great listening to our needs and interests. We ended up confidently and successfully purchasing our first home with no hiccups. Her experience and understanding of the market made a normally stressful process, go smoothly.

I want to thank our Realtor Irene Bilinski. We moved in 14 months ago and every now and then we get little surprises in the mail or on our door step. This week I found a bottle of Maple syrup wrapped up in a nice Read and White scarf with Maple Leafs. Thank you again Irene Bilinski for the great work in finding us this house....in about 2 years time we may be heading out again.

Irene Bilinski and her team have been so wonderful. We were complicated buyers because we were trying to purchase while still living abroad in the UK. We had a very long list of 'uncertainties' such as our timeline, our sale of the UK property, our arrival date, and the list goes on. But Irene took us on without reservation and we have never looked back! She has responded to each of our (innumerable) queries in an efficient manner and has helped us to 'narrow' our search for a home even without us being physically present in Ottawa! Nevertheless, when she did meet us in person on a few occasions, she happily brought us from place to place and she was always very helpful, well prepared, enthusiastic and knowledgeable about various locations and schools. Over time, we got to know Irene very, very well and she also got to know our family's needs and wishlist. We finally managed to buy our dream home for our family of six and she made the process as seamless as she possibly could! We are ever so grateful to have met Irene and we continue to keep in touch because she is such a warm, approachable and helpful friend! I would definitely recommend Irene and her team. Thank you for everything!

The Mackay family has been living in Convent Glen Orleans for the past 23 years. When it came time to downsize from our 4 bedroom home, we chose Irene Bilinski initially because of her understanding that we needed time to explore housing options without any pressure before making any firm decisions. Irene sent us real estate listings according to our specifications and toured the house to offer ways of preparing the house for sale. After several months, we found our future lodgings, made the suggested upgrades and called Irene with confidence. The process for putting the house on the market was quick, painless and professional. We were extremely impressed with the services of Irene and the Bilinski team, including team administrator, stager, photographer and reception staff. We quickly realized and appreciated that it truly took a dedicated and professional team to help us navigate the complex process of selling our home. Our house sold in less than 24 hours, and we received several serious offers. Irene's expertise was invaluable when reviewing the offers. From start to finish, it was Irene Bilinski's competence that impressed us the most. We wholeheartedly recommend her services.

The Bar has been raised! The Irene Bilinski Team is the best. Efficient, Professional, Courteous, above and beyond. We have moved across Canada through our work, and Irene Bilinski is, hands down, the best realtor we have found. Irene knows her stuff, has all the right contacts, and along with the rest of her team… as we said above “the bar has been raised”. We wish she could follow us back across the country now to help out on our next moves. Thanks Irene!

It is just is not the same without a little Irene in anyone’s day! We received your gift yesterday, first off, a very big "Thank You!" from both of us. It was not necessary, working with you was a pleasure. We enjoyed the “Irene experience.” Your way of doing business is to be admired. It is so stressful to sell and purchase a home but you managed to make it fun. Both Danny and I will be letting everyone we know how professional and ethical you are, we will both ensure that your business cards are passed on and will send as much business your way as we possibly can. Again, a very sincere and heartfelt "Thank You" for being the great lady you are as well as all your help, advice and support for the sale of our home and the purchase of our dream home. Thank you for everything dear lady!

We had a unique property in Rothwell Heights and we knew we needed the right buyers. Irene Bilinski, her great team along with her extensive network found the perfect people for our lovely, contemporary home. We were downsizing and the next step was to find a condo to suit our lifestyle. At the outset, that seems pretty easy but when you look at the buildings, the assessements, condo fees, amenities taxes (and each building is different) and near misses (health issues inside old highrises), then you really need someone who knows the ropes. However - and this is what makes Irene brilliant - it's not just selling one home and buying another, it's the aftermath that showcases Irene's dedication to getting the job done. When we had questions, she found the answers. We had a schedule to maintain and Irene accommodated us. When she saw something we missed, she pointed it out right away. On our part: total satisfaction, met and exceeded all expectations. We recommend Irene. Period. And she's welcome to give out our name and number for references. Kudos to your and your team, Irene, we are very happy to add this to your awesome testimonials.

My wife and I would like to take this opportunity to thank Irene for guiding us through the entire process, she understood what we were looking for. Even after a few failed septic issues she stayed positive and always had a smile for us. We both felt very comfortable working with Irene, when we had questions or concers Irene provided sound advice, good judgement & a professional approach to each and every detail. From the water treatment system, septic inspections, home inspection, furnace repair, all throughout Irene assembled a strong team of people who more than exceeded our expectations. Big Hugs!
I would highly recommend Irene and her team. Irene is extremely knowledgeable and honest. A relationship of trust was established right from the beginning. Through the process of selling & buying, she was available to answer questions and took the stress out of the situation. You always feel like you are her number 1 client! Her patience and sense of humour were appreciated. Because of Irene, the whole process was smooth and fun! Thanks Irene!
Un excellent service! Très humaine et attentive. Je ne pouvais pas demander mieux. Bravo Irene!

I had interviewed 2 other agents. Their suggesteed asking price was $7000 below the sale price that Irene obtained. The sale took 10 weeks in a very slow market. What more could a vendor ask? I thouroughly recommend Irene!
Hi Irene, Thanks so much for the bottle of wine - red is my favourite! The new place is so peaceful, so green and the fresh air. Because I'm on a corner, there is a cross breeze right through the condo. When I turn off the lights at night, it's so dark out, sort of like being right out in the country. The energy here is so positive - so different from the inner city. I know I can start painting again. I was in a creative slump living where I was before, but the beautiful surroundings are inspiring

We Truly Appreciated Irene’s Professionalism, patience, understanding and availability during the sale of & purchase of our homes. She has a wonderful team working with her, and provided expert advice through every step of the process. We couldn't have done it without her!
Dear Irene This note is long overdue but I wanted to thank you for the time you put in making the sale of our property happen. It was stressful at times but nonetheless the end result was achieved. It is nice to have time to rest and enjoy family and friends and also reflect on the next step in my journey. Wishing you all the best.

Hi, just a note to say thanks for all you have done for us throughout this process. As first time buyers, we had a lot of unanswered questions regarding the purchase of our home. Thank you for providing the answers to many of these and giving us informed advice on the homes that we visited!
