Selling a house when you are not there, it is something impossible,but after talking to Raquel and explaining how works it was very easy. She help me to prepare the house and provided a list of professionals and I was able to sell my house succesfully. Raquel have helped me more than she imagine and I am very grateful! Mrs. Mackellar.

Raquel was extremely patient and provided us with excellent guidance during our house hunting days. She gave excellent direction on when to make an offer and what potential a house would give us if you changed A, B, and C. She had us thinking outside of the box by showing us properties in different areas and always had extra properties to show us for comparisons.

Thank you Raquel for your drive and thoughtfulness. We look forward to working with to our search find a boarder for our student suite!!

One of the best decision that I have made in life was purchasing a place with the help of Raquel. Her experience and knowledge about Ottawa neighborhoods, house prices and how to put an offer. Her help was very valuable for me. I feel a lucky to count on her througth all the process and I am already telling family and friends to use Raquel services. Jeff Savoia

Thank you once again for helping me to find the best investment properties. It has always been a pleasure to do business with you." I wish more agents had your ethics and values as you do" Rick

Moving from another country and trying to find a home in a new city is a challenge that my family and I faced this summer 2009. We were very lucky to find Raquel Ireta website and contact her over the internet. She was able to help us and send us all the information about the city, schools, shopping and everything we needed for our relocation in Ottawa. We received all the properties for sale in Ottawa and details about the neighborhoods. It not easy task to search for a home from another country but Raquel make this possible for us. Without her help, for us would not be possible and perhaps we might have spend thousand of dollars on renting or making lots of mistakes. She showed her professionalism and experience and thanks to her my family and I have a home to arrive when we move to Ottawa. Without hesitation, I will highly recommend her for her services helping anyone to relocate in Ottawa. She is the best person and real estate agent that you ever meet. We are very grateful with her and we are bless. If you move to Ottawa, call Raquel and she will help you.

Raquel’s patience and friendly personality shows that cares about people and not just making a sale. Her depth knowledge of the Ottawa real estate makes easy to understand all the best options available in the house market. She is logical and honest and without hesitation I will recommend her. My home buying experience was successful one. I will hire Raquel to sell my house in the future.


Moving from overseas to a new city and finding a home is not easy, however finding Raquel was a miracle for us. She was willing to help us without hesitation and conditions. Our move was easy for me and family. I will recommend her, she is our angel and she found us the perfect home. Shane.

To whom it may concern: As out of towners we had purchased a condo for our daughter to live during her studies in Ottawa.
We recently sold the condo for a very good sum thanks to the great abilites of Raquel Ireta.
I undertook the somewhat daunting task of interviewing real estate agents via email and phone. Raquel of course won our trust and confidence very quickly as she demonstrated her sincerity and skills as if we were sitting down with her in the same room.
Raquels marketing skills and abundant energy were soon put to the task as she had to manage around an uncooperative condo cooperation.She took everything in stride and managed to come up with a favourable offer in very short order.
Without hesitation we whole heartly recommend Raquel Ireta as a very honest & professional real estate agent. And of course a very kind and considerate Lady.

Raquel, Thank you! You are the best agent we have known in Ottawa.


Raquel helped me to buy smart on my limited budget, that was really appreciated. She was upfront and honest in telling and explains everything in detail and we can trust on her. She walked me through the financing and legal issues clearly and competently. Most important, She is our agent for life. We shall surely recommend Raquel to our friends and family.

Joan and Family.

Raquel made our move from the UK to Canada easy and worry free. It is hard to arrange for a decent house to rent in the right area with a young family over the internet from a different country. Raquel helped us out with her knowledge and visiting a number of houses in different area's for us (and taking extra photo's). We are extremely happy in the house that we rented and loving Canada.
I would definitely recommend her services!

One of the most important steps in life is to buy your home. The one you will call your own. Reason why having a Real State Agent is essential. But not just a Real State Agent. Raquel is a Real State Agent who understands your needs and lifestyle. No matter what is your situation financially or personal she cares about you and guide you through the process. A Real State Agent that sees what you are looking for in a house trough your eyes and guides you and advices you as if it was her own life starting right there. That is what Raquel did for me and I am very thankful I found her website and contacted her. From the very first meeting she made me feel comfortable and answered all my questions. I have no words to thank her for taking me trough this whole process and always.. Always look for my best interests as if they were her own. Raquel is a true professional and very knowledgeble of what she does. Beside the professional side, her human side takes her services to another level. Reason why, what it started as a solely professional relationship Real State Agent – buyer became a true friendship. Without hesitation I recommend her services when I know of someone looking for a house or thinking in selling a house. I know at the end they will be very pleased with the end result.

Thank you Raquel
