I hope this is useful. Thank you again for the lovely cutting board.
I am happy to recommend Sepehr's services to anyone looking for a real estate agent. He gave me excellent advice on preparing my house for the market. We had two offers on the first day it was listed. He was on top of the various offers and kept the potential buyers aware of other interest, resulting in improved offers. When we ran into problems with issues around inspections, he was there to assist me in resolving the issues. While we had a number of bumps, the sale was completed relatively quickly, resulting in limited disruption to my life. My home sold for just hundreds under asking.
I was recently confronted with the task of selling my mother’s condominium in Ottawa - a city in which I did not live, work or play!
My mother is elderly and was ill-equipped to take care of the many details involved in selling the property herself, so naturally, the task fell to me. I was, to say the least, a reluctant candidate as I too was in no way willing or able to deal with the many aspects that such an adventure demanded.
The prospect was daunting, until Sepehr Safaee came into my life. I’ll make a relatively long, yet very enlightening story, short. Sepehr came, he saw, he evaluated the situation and then proceeded to give me some much needed, relevant advice.
Firstly, he talked me out of spending money that I had anticipated would be necessary to “stage” the condo in order to eventually sell it. He explained his pricing strategy, structured to suit a city in which condos are not scarce and continue to be constructed as we speak, and then – he delivered!
I followed all his recommendations, saved my money and within 10 business days the condo was SOLD, at the price that we had initially agreed upon!
Sepehr Safaee came highly recommended to me by a friend, who told me that he was an exceptional agent. I can now confidently testify that this is indeed so.
He understood and tailored his approach and expertise to accommodate my unique situation, something that I consider a true sign of professionalism as well as an undeniable symptom of humanity.
I wish everyone involved in any real estate transaction the best of luck – but luck alone has never successfully bought, sold or negotiated real estate deal. On the other hand, a gentleman who also happens to be an exceptional agent and who has your best interest at heart can.
Thank you Sepehr, I wish we could have spent more time together, but I guess that’s the price we all have to pay for you being so good at what you do:)

My wife and I had one week house hunting and Sepehr was the prefect agent to find us what we want in such short time. Sepehr was very organized, patient and helpful, he planned more than 30 visits, and we never felt rushed. Sepehr covered all the buying process from a to z. It was a real pleasure to work with him and we strongly recommend his services.
My Brother and I have been working with Sepehr for few years now , we are pleased with the services he offered us for buying, renting and managing our Condominiums. He has found good tenants in a very short periods of time. He is very energetic, honest and punctual. I would highly recommend him to anybody who wants to buy or sell properties in the Ottawa area.
Sepehr is truly one of the most genuine and hard-working agents I have ever met, and he knows the Ottawa market! He sold my condo this summer, many months before I expected it to sell. My unit was in a high-rise building under a special assessment, which is a red-flag condition for any buyer and made it difficult for all owners in my building to sell. In spite of this red-flag, Sepehr was relentless in generating interest via the web, magazines and his professional network, and he got me an offer I was happy to accept. I am so glad I chose Sepehr to represent me.
Sepehr is a true, kind, and hard-working agent. It was our first apartment that we had purchased and Sepehr helped us rent it out very quickly, and that meant a lot to us. We thank him for helping us in the busy market of today.
My home was sold this spring and Sepehr was my real estate agent. It was my first time going through this experience and I could not have asked for a better agent to help me survive it. He explained the process thoroughly and was transparent, engaging, and professional in his dealings with me throughout. He also did his research meticulously before providing advice to me. Sepehr also provided excellent support and client service. If you are looking for a top notch agent with lots of integrity, look no further. Thanks Sepehr.
Sepehr Safaee has been my rental agent and property manager for about two years. I currently own two properties in Ottawa which he has been managing ever since I moved to another continent for work. He has been reliable, honest and very hard working. He has consistently been renting them out and resolving any issues which arise in relation to the tenants or properties without taking up any of my time. I couldn't be happier to have found him. He is the perfect property manager and I will continue to work with him as long as possible.
Sepehr was great for us. We were looking for our first home and wanted something just right. We were not in a rush and Sepehr was very understanding and patient with us. We never felt pushed and he listened to our comments. His knowledge and guidannce were exactly what we needed to narrow down the perfect home for us. Thanks Sepehr!
-D. Surette & A. Smith
Sepehr was a pleasure to work with in finding our new home. We were first time buyers and didn't know anything about the process. Sepehr patiently walked us through every step. He was very quick to find properties that suited our needs and help us finalize the sale promptly. We would happily recommend Sepehr's services to anyone looking to buy a home!
-Mr. & Mrs. Sabet
Sepehr is a thorough and personable real estate agent. Step by step through my condo search he provided me with his expertise, but at the same time ensured that I was comfortable and happy with the choices in front of me. My needs were specific, as I was only interested in a very small geographical area of the city. Sepehr understood my needs and focussed his energies in finding the condo that I was looking for. Sepehr doesn't have a one-size fits all approach- He provides expert and personalized service.
-Mr. A. Hashemi
Mr. Safaee to be honest is one of the best agents I have worked with. I had a downtown condo listed for rent with another agent, it had been on the market for over 2 months and the agent kept telling me that the "rental market" is slow. I finally had given up on them and had heard great things about an agent called "Sepehr Safaee" with Sutton Group Realty, so I decided to give him a chance. Literally within 1 WEEK from signing the contract, Sepehr had my condo rented on a 4 year term to a family of diplomats. I would highly recommend him to anyone I know and will definitely use him again in the future.
-Mr. A. Samini
I just bought my first investment property through Sepehr. He is very knowledgeable, honest, resourceful and thorough. He was available to answer my questions promptly and without any delays. He also put me in contact with people who helped me enormously with my investment needs. He was even able to find me a suitable tenant for my property within 30 days of purchase! I greatly appreciate your excellent service and professionaluim.
-Mrs. M. Eshtiaghabad
Sepehr must have shown my husband & I more than thirty homes before we finally settled on the house we decided to buy. He was quite knowledgeable about different neighborhoods and always gave the pros and cons of any given property.
Sepehr's relaxed mannerism and easy attitude helps the clients feel at ease and not feel pressured to make a purchase they are not sure about. He is also quite punctual, respectful and flexible with his clients.
-Mr. & Mrs. Stephens
My wife and I needed to buy a house. In one month, everything was done! Mr. Sepehr is a very patient person. He explained to us the different options which best corresponded to what we were looking for.
He is very punctual and respectful. We really appreciated our experience with him!
-Mr. & Mrs. Desir
I had only 2 weeks to buy an apartment and go back to my home town in US. Mr Safaee with his professional ethics made what seemed impossible to me at the beginning possible. He gave me accurate information on history of purchasing apartment in Ottawa and educated me on different neighborhood and prices and showed me exactly what I was looking for. He not only helped me purchase the apartment but he is also managing it for me. He found me a tenant in no time! Mr. Safaee is energetic and has a positive attitude and made the process easy and pleasant.
-Mr. A. Rahmanian
I'm grateful to have had Sepehr as my agent. From beginning to end, he has always held my confidence, and his integrity and honesty are priceless. Sepehr is careful to put his clients' interests above his own, and I appreciated his open advice. He's an agent that doesn't push you just to make a sale. I'm grateful that despite a strong seller's market, he was able to find what I was looking for.
-Mr. J. Mostaghim
Mr. Safaee is a great agent and served us well. He rented our apartment quickly and at 10% higher than what we had asked for. He was very responsive, punctual and organized. We have no hesitation recommending Mr. Safaee and could be contacted if needed.
-F. & Z. Ziaei
I would like to thank Sepehr for the outstanding professional service he provided me during the sale of my home in Kanata. I am also very grateful to him for helping and advising me in the purchase of my current home in Kanata. I was impressed by his extensive knowledge of the housing market, pricing expertise, and professionalism. Throughout the process of showing appointments, open houses, negotiation and the sale completion, I found him very organized, proficient and thoughtful. During the purchase of my current home he understood my needs, and his excellent advice guided me through the process. I am a very detailed person with many questions; Sepehr always patiently provided me an honest and professional answer and advice. I am glad that I listened to his advice! Without hesitation, I would be pleased to recommend his services to any of my friends who are looking to sell or buy a home.
-Mr. Z. Hashemi
This was my first home purchase so the entire process was somewhat overwhelming, and at times frustrating. Sepehr provided sound advice and useful insights into the buyer/seller/legal areas which allowed us more time to actively search for homes as opposed to dealing with all the legal aspects. We enjoyed working with him and would highly recommend Sepehr to any prospective property buyer/seller. It was also nice to be able to exchange information in both official languages as Sepehr is fluent in both English and French.
-D. Syme & N. Fleury
We loved working with Sepehr in our endeavour to find and purchase a new home! Sepehr carefully listened to and respected our unique needs as he gently guided us through the entire process. We really appreciated his very patient and ‘non pushy’ approach. He show us a variety of different properties until we found the one that fit us and openly shared objective insights into potential positives and negatives for us to keep in mind. He stayed by our side until the end to make sure that everything went smoothly and even checked in after his formal work was complete to ensure that all was okay. Although he is very patient with his clients, he is also a very a shrewd negotiator and produces real results! We are very happy to have done business with Sepehr on our side and would definitely call on his support and services when we look to buy/sell again.
-A. Khatamian & M. Turbide
Sepehr Safaee helped us greatly buying our first home. It was a long process as it was our first home, Sepehr was very patient and helpful. We always felt reassured, he kept in touch with us frequently giving us suggestions and new listings. He gave us very useful hints and suggestions during our search and was always there when we had questions. He was very reliable in setting up appointments and we always felt like Sepehr had our best interest at heart.
-N. & D. Edwards
Sepehr is an agent that you can TRUST. You can count on him to be professional and attentive. He is available, serious and dependable.During the entire process I felt that he was honest, sympathetic and in control. I would gladly recommend him to my friends and family.
-Mr. G. Pynn
Sepehr is a great agent and a great guy. He helped me find my current residence and helped me look for an investment property. He was always knowledgeable about the properties we looked at, the neighbourhood, the market in the area, and was quick to point out when something wasn't a great investment. In the end, I didn't end up buying an investment property as nothing that was on the market suited my needs. Having a real-estate agent that is honest enough to tell you when not to buy/sell a house is a rare-thing and in my opinion, priceless.
-Mr. M. Derakhshan
In general I am cautious of sale’s men/women as often they appear to have one thing in mind:"to sell". Sepehr, however, managed to have a pleasant balance in his attitude towards "selling". He asked me precise questions to learn my taste, and what best I can buy with my budgetary limitation. Although he was attentive to my plan of buying he gave me "space" to think and decide. I find him to know when to give a gentle push and when to give space to his client.
He was always available and responded to my numerous questions and worries with patience and honesty.
He created an atmosphere of courtesy, trust and honesty which is most appreciated.
-Mrs. M. Rouhani
Sepehr Safaee helped my mom and I buy our first house. We each had specific requirements and a defined budget range. M. Safaee did his best to get a good overview of our needs and then patiently explained the different options which best corresponded to what we were looking for. The on-site visits were planned in an organized way. Sepehr was always punctual and all appointments were confirmed with the other agents.
Our experience with Sepehr was a very positive one. We feel that he was very respectful, polite and professional. It was a pleasure having him as our agent!
