Congratulations to all of our fantastic sellers and buyers! We wish you much joy, happiness, and wonderful memories in your new homes.
“Starting in March 2019, my husband and I worked with Martin to buy our first house. Marty was a wonderful agent who went above and beyond to help us understand the market and what we could afford, and to get us into a home that fit our needs within a fairly tight timeline and in a very competitive market. He has been in the biz for a while and it’s clear that he knows houses – his eyes were able to see things we were not. And in a market where people are tripping over themselves to bid way more than a house is worth, Martin helped us understand when it was best to just walk away. On top of that, we sincerely looked forward to each time we got to meet up with Martin – he’s an incredibly charming, warm and witty person who made a stressful process entertaining and fun. When we eventually found our home, Martin moved quick to help us successfully put in an offer. he was considerate and helpful to ensure we had everything we needed up until closing, putting us in touch with professionals such as lawyers and home inspectors, and explaining everything each step of the way. Martin also managed to help us get into the home without a bidding war, and we didn’t have to pay over asking - a rare thing in this sellers market, I'm told. Not to mention he did all of this in our ideal timeline of 90 days. Amazing! We will definitely work with him again in the future - hopefully not any time soon, because we loooooove our new home - and would recommend him to my friends and family.”
“Lorie Ann Warren understands her clients and has a vision for the sale and/or purchase of their home. Lorie and her team take the reins from staging, to providing great advice, to knowing the market, to negotiating with her contacts to get the job done. She strives to find the perfect fit during the house-hunting. Her experience and personality shines when suggesting improvement or decorating possibilities for the new space. Hands down the best realtor!!”
“We are so impressed and grateful to have Michael Warren as Our Realtor. He went over and above for our family. Michael’s integrity is a part of this Man’s personality which is so impressive and shows true leadership. As out of town buyers, we had a short window and Michael and the Remax Team found the perfect home. We must also add that He has a wonderful and genuine sense of humour. We will always work with Michael, Lorie, and the Remax Team and will absolutely recommend them to friends and family. Thank You Michael.”

"My experience with Martin was nothing less then amazing. My first home buying experience, I was nervous going into, as anyone would be. He made the entire process as comfortable and transparent as possible. Every step of the way he was helpful, communicative and positive. whether offers were accepted or not, he was always in my corner, and made the process comprehensible. I would highly recommend Martin, to anyone, whether it’s your first home or your 5th, he has the experience and knowledge to make the home buying experience as comfortable and easy as possible"
“Buying and/or selling your home is stressful: there is no way around that. Unless of course you have the Lorie Ann Warren team representing you. This is not our first rodeo, We’ve purchased a property before and have multiple friends and family who have also gone through the same process. None of their realtors, nor ours, were as prepared and as driven as Lorie was. The two biggest things we noticed about Lorie and her team, was her knowledge of the industry and market, and her passion for helping people.
Throughout the process of selling our home and finding a new one, Lorie always made us feel like a priority. She was always reachable, and reliable, and offered valuable advice and solutions that best fit our situation. As the market changed, as it does constantly, so did she, to keep ahead of the curve. We never felt rushed or pushed in a certain direction. Lorie’s patience allowed us to have piece of mind throughout the process, and that’s invaluable.
Lorie’s team professionally staged and photographed our home and really pushed the advertising to create awareness of our presence on the market. There were other similar properties on the market in the area, but not as popular as ours. With over 40 showings in a week plus an additional 50 couples on open house day, we ended up generating over 10 offers! Our house sold for 30K over asking and set a new market record for the neighbourhood.
When my wife and I first purchased that home, we looked at well over 50 houses. When looking for our new family home, Lorie nailed it on the first try. We fell in love with the first home she showed us. She really listened to our needs and didn’t stop until we were happy.
We still keep in touch with Lorie whether it be a text, a call, or a pop in, just to make sure we are still satisfied. She only wants the best for others. With Lorie, you don’t just get a professional, dedicated and hard working realtor, you gain a friend to guide you through the whole process. Go with the Lorie Ann Warren team, and let them take care of the rest.”

“We sold our last home with Marty Oswald and bought our new home with him as well! He was an absolute pleasure to work with. Super patient, knowledgeable and so calming through this sometimes stressful process. We couldn't thank Marty enough! My kids are already asking why we don't see him anymore :)”
Namrata & Alex
“Lorie and her team go out of their way to make sure you find the right home. Her knowledge and experience is unmatched. She never gave up and worked day and night, it seems like she never sleeps and is always there for you. She truly cares about her clients and it shows.”
Craig & Sara
“I recommend everything about Lorie Ann Warren and her Team.
They have, once again, guided us to SUCCESS with
a seamless approach.
Every time we deal with Lorie we have FUN
and enjoy a STRESSLESS experience with
an EFFICIENT and PROSPEROUS return.
If anyone is looking for the right team to
get the job done, look no further!”
“Michael and Lorie are a highly skilled team. I was referred to them by a military colleague who had worked with Lorie and Michael for several purchases and sales of properties and had great things to say about them. Needless to say, they surpassed my expectations. When it came to us relocating to Ottawa in fall 2018, with Michael and Lorie’s help we were able to purchase a house in the heart of downtown Ottawa UNDER asking price, in a time where houses are consistently selling over asking. They have continued to be a part of my life even since buying our house, and I look forward to working with them on future real estate transactions. Michael and Lorie, you are welcome in our home any time!”
Jana & Gilda
“2018 the year that took me to a very interesting journey. I was in the market to purchase a house in Ottawa, but my family is not living in that area. For that purpose I went online & hand picked an agent to work with. We don't know each other, but over the weeks & months of search we developed good friendship & she provided assistance in such way that I feel in debt to her. Although I am living 300 miles away she made the search & acquisition so smooth that I did not have to go there at all, I ended up going once just to please my wife. The excellence of the service provided by LORIE ANN Warren of Remax is next to none. She went the extra mile in every possible direction to help & to make life easy for me & my family. She is an agent with over average analytical skills & her knowledge of the market has benefited me so much that I would not hesitate to recommend her for any Real Estate purchases within the Ottawa area. She is genuine, she lives up to her words & she really looked after my interest. She could not earn my trust any other way & in my book she is # 1 while she is easy to get along with.
If further info is required, do not hesitate to give me a call & I'd be more than happy to talk to anyone.”

“We had an excellent experience with Lorie and her team from our first meeting to well after the house sold. The house sale was a very emotional time for us, and Lorie and her team were always there to help and to make suggestions to make the process easier for us. She used a number of different strategies to advertise the house sale, to reach as many potential buyers as possible, and was always available to us whenever we had questions or concerns. She guided us through every step of the process to ensure that each was addressed properly and to our satisfaction. With her help, the house sold well above asking price. We heartily recommend Lorie and her team to anyone who has a house to sell. Thank you!”
Walter, Paula and Nick
"Great experience! Honesty, attention to detail and service from the entire team! They all helped me stage the house and the photos and media were amazing. People couldn't believe how nice the house looked, were impressed with the video and the pictures looked real and did the house justice. Lorie, Michael and Rebecca were very attentive, always answering my emails and calls in a more than timely manner. Definitely a great experience and would absolutely recommend the team to anyone!!!"
"I can not say enough about Lorie Warren (Home With Lorie) and her Remax team on the approach for selling our home. She went above and beyond in helping Sheila and I to get the home ready. From finding and purchasing our beautiful new home to staging our home she tirelessly helped throughout the whole process. Organizing the inspections(home, septic, water) and a lawyer...she did it all....an absolute amazing job and I highly recommend her to anyone going through this process. Thanks again Lorie Warren Team for a spectacular job....."
"No matter how you cut it, selling your home is not fun or easy! Lorie and her entire team, both internal and external, work so very hard to make it easier and the result worth the pain. Or as they say in the Fitness world (both financial or physical) "No pain, no gain!"
Over recent years I've enjoyed the professional Realtor's TV ads with the SWAT team and the motorcycle gang, etc. and I was likely pretty sceptical about the real value and differentiation that an agent provides. I can unreservedly say after working with Lorie and her team not a shred of scepticism remains. she went above and beyond to get us the best price she could, she understood the market and the buying mentality, she invested time and money into the process, she handled every curve thrown her way with calmness and aplomb (and there were curves) and as my wife, a woman of few but profound words, says "we chose the right realtor!"
Thank you Lorie, Michael, Rebecca, Sharon. Your work is appreciated and heartily endorsed."
Bruce & Barbara
"There are seminal moments in every lifetime. I remember my mind being filled with the ideals of being ethical. Fortunately, my wife Sheila and I share these same principles and we expect others to treat us with similar respect. It is profoundly refreshing when we meet and/or work with people who exemplify ethics. We are both thrilled to have worked with Lorie Ann Warren over the past few weeks as she planned; executed and sold our home with her own high ideals of integrity! 3 days from listing to closing at a price well beyond our expectations! Our relationship could not have been better. We are proud to call her more than a business acquaintance; she has become our friend. You can't beat that! Thank you Lorie Ann!"
Owen & Sheila
"I have used Lorie to both purchase and sell a house, and I am glad I did. She is both very professional, yet personal. She educated me, in detail, about the processes and set very reasonable expectations which she surpassed. Her attention to detail, knowledge of the markets and purchasing/selling strategies are amazing. Trust is something i don't take lightly, especially when it comes to our most important investment, but I in-equivalently trust Lorie, and will contact her again for future real estate transactions."
"We got in touch with Lorie Ann when it was time to sell our current house and buy our next home. From our first meeting to signing the offer papers, Lorie Ann, Michael and their team were knowledgeable, efficient, supportive and creative in their approaches to selling and buying. Our home sold in five days, and a day later, we had purchased our dream home. Not only did they make the buying and selling process easy and less stressful than anticipated, they made it fun and memorable. They take their sellers' and buyers' goals at heart and make them their own. We would highly recommend the Lorie Ann Warren team!"
Renee & Tyler
"There aren't enough words to describe how thankful we are to have Lorie as our realtor. She has been there from the beginning, from the purchase of our first house, to selling it.
When we told her that we were selling, she came over right away and took the time to go through our house. We were blown away that she noticed every upgrade and feature we added to the house, considering it was 8 years since she last saw the house. She also, took the time to explain to us the current housing market in Ottawa. We talked strategy and came up with a plan. If it wasn't for Lorie, my husband and I would still be sitting around our house discussing what we should be doing to get our house ready. Lorie came in with a plan and set dates. She recommended an amazing affordable staging person who just helped make our house look that much more inviting. Lorie gave us that push we needed and because of her, we sold our house in less than a week and for way more than we could ever imagine.
Now we will be taking this next step with her and buying the house of our dreams for the next chapter in our lives. We are so grateful and thankful to have such a wonderful and genuine person as our realtor.
Truly from the bottom of our heart, we THANK YOU!"

"Michael was awesome with helping us find a home. We were very demanding and impatient but he kept up with us keeping us calm. Moving to a new place not knowing the market, he was very knowledgeable and helped us win in a bidding war for the perfect place!"
Holly & Tim
"We just bought/sold our house with Lorie and Michael over the last months, but they have been patiently working with us for the last 3 years. They are an amazing team - we feel quite lucky to have found them. Thanks soooo much!"
Kirsten & Karyn
"My husband was thinking of selling his house and our Financial Advisor referred us to Lorie Ann. The first time we met Lorie, she made us feel at ease. Her professionalism and understanding of her trade made us wanted to know more about her expertise. We also needed to sell my parents house and was very happy to have Lorie’s help. She did an exceptional job by selling the family house in a week. She was there for us day and night as this was a very emotional time. Lorie Ann is a people person and has a special bond with her clients.
My husband and I are looking forward to working with her in the summer as we will be selling his house.
I would HIGHLY recommend Lorie and her team."
"I give a Lorie and Michael a 10* review. Friendly, patient and honest people. I bought a house from them and sold one with them and I was very pleased with both experiences. They have surpassed my expectations every time - they are always 10 steps ahead of me. Very professional people that go above and beyond and put their heart and soul in their work. I recommend Lorie and Michael very highly and wish them all the best! Thank you so much for helping me."
"Lorie Ann, You are a truly wonderful agent! Thank you for all that you have done for us. We appreciated your honesty, integrity, your time and knowledge. And Thank you for seeing our vision, I would have never thought a house could sell so fast. We will recommend you to all our friends, as you came so highly recommended to us!"
“We are delighted and impressed with the level of service provided by Lorie Ann Warren of RE/MAX Hallmark in managing the sale of our two residential properties (a triplex and a four-plex) in Ottawa.
With the marketing resources of ReMax, and the selling skills of Lorie Ann, we were able to list, market, and close the sale on both properties within two weeks of the date of listing. And also, most impressively, we were able to sell one property at 100% of the listing price, and sell the second property at a negotiated price above the listing price. In short, we were wowed by their selling skills and personal touch service."
Jim & Helene
"If you want to sell your house quickly and at a great price you can do no better than to work with Lorie Ann Warren and her team. We have found that working with her is rewarding because she will work as hard as you will on selling your house. In our case, Lorie arranged to have our house professionally staged, we had comparable prices for all sales in our neighbourhood, information about our house was sent immediately to all agents in the Ottawa area as soon as it was listed, and all leads were quickly followed up with by her and her team. The results were very impressive - our house was sold within four days of being on the market and at a price we were both happy to accept."
Don & Joan
"We have dealt with Lorie several times over the years and would never dream of trusting our single largest investment with anyone else. Not only is she professional and extremely knowledgeable in her field, she is an amazingly warm person who works hard for all of her clients. If you have a property to sell or need to buy a home, we would strongly recommend you put your trust in Lorie as she will always have your best interest at heart!"
Danielle & Allen
"Loved working with Michael and Lorie! I had to find the perfect house, in a week with quick closing and they took away all the stress of it and made it so easy! They were with me every step of the way and went above and beyond to help me. Thank you and I look forward to working with you guys again!"
"The Francis family has nothing but the very best to say about your professionalism, work ethic and dedication to your line of work. It was indeed a whirlwind experience, all wrapped up from start to finish in just over 2 months! We truly appreciated all your expert help and advice throughout the process, including all the folks you put us on to, such as Jesse and Bob.
I told you before, if our neighbours had used you as their realtor, it would certainly not have taken them 3 years to sell their house, after a substantial reduction in asking price.
Our house sold in less than 3 weeks!! Sadly, we have no more houses to give you to sell ... Lol
Thank you for making the process go so smoothly, it was indeed a pleasure working with you. Laura sends her best regards. And Philip says to tell you he's truly sorry he never got to meet "The Beast!"
Kathryn, Philip & Laura
"Working with Lorie Ann and her team has always been an awesome experience. My most recent experience was met with professionalism and patience! What do they do? Everything!! From making sure we saw the properties that we wanted to see and finding the home that was perfect for us. On the flip side in selling our home, they had excellent marketing, helped staged the home to make it sell quickly, having multiple offers over a couple of days, all while making you feel less nervous about anything you were nervous about! If you needed anything, they were a quick text, call, or e-mail away. Thanks to Lorie and Michael for everything!"
"Dear Lorie, I wanted to thank you and your team for the excellent customer service that you have provided through this home sale journey! You were always available when needed and quick to respond to any questions and in providing showing feedback. Your attention to details and superior customer-orientedness and flexibility have made this experience enjoyable and easy. Thank you so very much for your unconditional support in this adventure.
I 110% will recommend your team in the future to my family members, friends and coworkers."
