My husband and I moved to Ottawa (Centretown) in August of 2017 and were renting for the first 10 months. Despite loving the area, we really had no plans on buying a home, and had limited knowledge of the real estate climate in Ottawa. We attended an open house in our building and, although hesitant, decided to consider purchasing. My husband and I have a fair amount of experience with real estate and with Real Estate brokers. Between the two of us, this was our 8th purchase. I must say, Jurgen was definitely the most pleasant, calming, and positive experience I've had. He is a pleasure to deal with, and we benefited greatly from his experience, knowledge, and skill with negotiations. Jurgen was open and honest, and we felt we could trust his expertise with the local condo market. He gave us wise guidance in determining appropriate purchase pricing, and prepared us for what we were going to need to do at each step of the transaction. Thanks to Jurgen, we absolutely love our new home and are thrilled with our decision to purchase it. I highly recommend Jurgen to anyone who is interested in selling or purchasing, and we would be delighted to work with him again in the future should the opportunity arise.

The process of buying a home is both fun and stressful, and until the dotted line is signed, many things can happen. I was fortunate enough to have Jurgen as a knowledgeable and professional guide throughout the 3 weeks it took to finalize the purchase of my condo. Having just moved back to Ottawa after being abroad for several years, he went out of his way to make sure I was updated every step of the way, and provided me with solutions and contacts that made my process smooth and seamless.

I have purchased numerous investment properties/condos using Jurgen as my agent over the last 15 years. His professionalism and solid understanding of the market conditions helped me in purchasing the right properties. His connection with Developers and having the inside on projects were extremely helpful and allowed me to get access to units before the main stream buyers. Jurgen is an honest and straightforward person and his knowledge of the real estate market is very valuable to me as an investor. I have referred him to family and friends and they feel the same way.

I first used Jurgen Fretschner as my agent for my 2 bedroom condo purchase on George St. in 2006 when I moved to Canada form Germany. I have since then sold and purchased two more condos and have settled in a 1 bedroom condo on McLeod St. in 2012. Jurgen has handled all my real estate dealings and was amazing to work with. I was highly satisfied with his knowledge and professionalism throughout the process. He was always ready to answer my questions and I especially appreciated his guidance and help when it came to handling the documents and closings.

I became acquainted with Jurgen in 2006 when he helped me with a condo unit rental when I moved to Ottawa. He was instrumental in the purchase of my first property in 2007. His knowledge of the condominium market, his reliability and honesty led me to recommend him to friends and acquaintances, all of whom had purchased units from him. Jurgen is sincere in fostering a good relationship with his clients. I have continued to seek his expertise in my purchases. I will not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a condominium unit.

Dear Prospective Seller/ Buyer, 
If you're thinking about listing your home or buying a new home and you're not sure which real estate agent you should retain in Ottawa, may I strongly suggest that you contact Jurgen Fretschner. While it may not appear necessary, having a first-rate agent is vital to your success! Jurgen was highly recommended to me by a TD Bank mortgage broker. From my initial meeting with Jurgen, I was convinced that he would prove beneficial in finding the right home for my family. Once I had provided him with a geographic area and price range, Jurgen promptly shared all MLS listings within my specifications. 
During the first few months, Jurgen was always available and punctual when viewing potential homes for sale. With each home that we viewed, I was always incredibly impressed by his knowledge of homes. Despite several unsuccessful attempts at finding the dream home, Jurgen always reassured me that we would indeed find the perfect home. Jurgen kept in contact with me the entire time and asked me to consider widening my search area. 
Within just a few short weeks, we found the perfect home for us. Jurgen's negotiation skills proved profitable to us during the negotiation process as we closed under the asking price in a seller's market. 
But the service did not end with the closing of my home. Jurgen made sure to reach out to me to see whether my family was pleased with the purchase. To this day, Jurgen continues to stay in touch periodically and offers excellent insight into the real estate industry. 
I have such gratitude for him helping my family realize our dream of owning a home in Ottawa. We realize what a major role he played in making our dream a reality. 

Sincerely,

I first met Jurgen in 2004 while looking for a new home for myself in The East Market Project in the Byward Market. It was a pleasure working with Jurgen and finding a perfect corner condo unit that I would call home for the next few years. When it was time to sell, he was right there with me making that happen as painlessly as possible. Over the following years I went on to purchase two condos in the Mondrian Project on Laurier Ave. West and two more in Central Phase Two near Bank and Gladstone. Jurgen handled those purchases and sales as well. He was instrumental in referring me to an excellent mortgage broker who worked miracles and a lawyer who was very knowledgeable in condo law. Jurgen also handled the sale of a residential property in Nepean which my husband owned. All in all, we have done a lot of business together and I highly recommend Jurgen for any real estate needs. He has always been extremely helpful throughout the good times as well as the tougher times. This is a five star rating.

I have had the pleasure of dealing with Jurgen in real estate ventures for over ten years now. My first condo deal in the East Market marked the beginning of our experiences together. From there my trust in and respect for Jurgen's knowledge has lead to his selling my first home, finding my second home, guiding me through more condo purchases in Central 1 and 2 as well as Hideaway and my latest purchases in Gotham and Soba. Jurgen also sold my East Market, Central 1 and Hideaway condos. Jurgen has been there for me with knowledge and advice every step of the way. He has a great eye for investment opportunities and a wealth of knowledge in the ottawa real estate market. In my opinion, Jurgen's ability to balance his straight forward approach with his patience and perseverance makes him a real estate agent who values his client's time and truly makes their best interests his first priority.
