"My husband and I wanted to express our sincere gratitude for the outstanding services we received from one of your sales representatives very recently. Cleo Hanke walked us through the process of buying a home in Greely and selling ours in Barrhaven. We knew of Cleo's reputation beforehand which is why we had approached her to represent us. Cleo certainly lived up to her reputation and in our minds even went over and above! Cleo's attention to detail and thorough knowledge of the areas were instrumental in our case to ensure that we both bought and sold at a very fair price. She investigated and followed through on so many intricate details which in turn made us feel very protected on both sides of the deals. We would highly recommend Cleo to any buyer or seller! Thank you Cleo!"

"As first-time home buyers 15 years ago, we were pretty much overwhelmed by the whole process. And then we met Cleo who earned our confidence right away with her professionalism and friendly manners. She made our home purchase a really nice and stress-free experience. After so many years we are still completely satisfied with the purchase. Over all these years Cleo kept in touch with us and two years ago when we decided to buy another property she demonstrated the same professionalism, integrity, dedication and attention to detail. She was at all time a good listener, pleasant, sincere and with excellent negotiating skills. Working with Cleo was a wonderful experience. We would not hesitate to recommend Cleo to anyone in need of realty services.

"More than 15 years ago Cleo assisted me in reviewing the Ottawa bungalow housing market, helping me to establish the location and cozy home attributes that I could best afford and fully appreciate. On a business trip back to my roots in Ottawa, and despite having only a few days to meet my goal, Cleo quickly gained my confidence. Together, leveraging her wide network of resources and knowledge of the greater Ottawa area, we met the challenge. Four years ago, I had no hesitation asking Cleo to assist my rather skittish, older sister with her decision to become a first time buyer, at 65 years of age. She was most patient and available to Julie throughout every step of the process. Only a couple of months ago, Cleo again helped me to secure a second property as an investment that would also align with my plan for the next stage my own accommodation needs. Cleo maintains current knowledge of condominium rules, proving she has a toolkit of knowledge and resources to tap into when providing her professional guidance on all areas related to the purchase and sale of any category of residential real estate. Having witnessed, again, her business ethics, I would eagerly recommend Cleo Hanke to any friend or family member.
" In searching for our retirement home, we found Cleo Hanke to be a friendly, professional and knowledgeable realtor. In a unique sale and puchase Cleo represented both the sellers and us the purchasers in negotiating and finalizing a time sensitive arrangement. Her commitment to both parties is a testament to her can do atitude and ethical approach to getting best deal for all concerned. I highly recommend Cleo Hanke for all your real estate needs."

"As first time home buyers, we found that Cleo was a huge help during our search. She knew the answer to all of our questions, and understood exactly what we were looking for in the perfect home for us. There is no question that we would work with Cleo again."

"We began our search for a home and were recommended to Cleo by good friends who had worked with her numerous times. She was patient with our multitude of questions, took us thru the steps of home buying without pressure and was quick to react when the right property came on the market. She was a great negotiator and made sure that we understood all the steps in the offer process, gave us great advice and treated us like family. We wouldn't hesitate to buy with her again and will list our home with her when the time comes."

         "I have known Cleo Hanke for over twenty years, and have great respect for her both professionally and personally. Cleo was my agent when I sold my first house, and when my partner and I purchased a house in 2000. Cleo is very respectful of her clients, their real estate needs and wishes. She shares her knowledge of the market; the pros and cons of various neighbourhoods; and the workings of the real estate process. Cleo is able to use her experience, intelligence, warm personality, and low-pressure approach to remove the stress of buying or selling a property. Twelve years later, we still feel that this was the perfect home for us. When my elderly parents needed to move from their condominium to a retirement residence, I immediately thought of Cleo to help with the condo sale. Cleo was very caring of my parents, strategic in her approach for the condo sale, and always very pleasant to deal with from the first meeting to the final signature. I confidently recommend Cleo to anyone looking for a real estate agent."
"Cleo came highly recommended by members of our family when we moved here 10 years ago. She dedicated herself to us for that time and made sure we found our perfect home. When a last minute transfer came through this year, we had no doubt who to call! She understood our sense of urgency, but kept us calm and focussed. Her experience and wonderful demeanor helped us deal with some of the curveballs that come with selling a home. In the end, thanks to her strategy, our house sold quickly and we were extremely happy with the results. I have no doubt who we will call when we come back. We can't thank Cleo enough!"
