Buying your first home is a nerve-racking experience for anyone, but Shamir was patient, honest, and readily available for our questions. As two young people who do not own a car, location was very important but our budget was limited. These obstacles didn’t phase Shamir one bit. I would highly recommend Shamir for your next real estate endeavour.

Shamir is a home sales superstar! He guided us through what could have been the very stressful process of selling our house while being overseas. He made it easy, gave us lots of information on the process, and developed great strategies for marketing. Shamir always delivers the personal touch and has an infectious sense of excitement. If you want your property sold quickly and above asking, Shamir has my highest recommendation!

Shamir was able to do the impossible....we thought our asking price was a moon shot...he beat it by 25000. As expats who were far away, we felt secure in the knowledge that Shamir was looking after every detail. Short, painless and profitable.....is the best way to describe our experience. Many thanks Shamir!

Where do I start.... I met Shamir at an open house where I was downtrodden from losing home after home in bidding wars. He convinced me to try for the home he was selling and not give up. The best part is that I won that bidding war and was able to buy a beautiful new home. I then decided to have Shamir help me sell my current home. Within 1 week, we had 5 offers and it sold WAY OVER asking price!! His marketing was top notch and the video and photos of my home were so beautiful that they attracted a large group of interested buyers. In fact, the buyer who purchased my home found out about it via one of Shamir's Facebook ads. Overall, I am very happy and I would highly recommend Shamir if you want your real estate transaction to be seamless.

Being knowledgeable, well-connected and very smart are qualities that come to mind when talking about Shamir. However, I think anyone would rightfully expect those qualities from any realtor. What makes Shamir more than just ‘good’ - exceptional, really - is that he always has your best interests at heart. He listens, interprets your needs (in the right context), and is always in service of you. He’s the furthest thing from pushy and will work tirelessly to get you what you need. He actually said ‘no’ to us on many occasions (something you wouldn’t expect from someone in his position), insisting that he could find us a better, more affordable home. You can’t get better value from anyone. We couldn’t have been happier with the home he found for us (at a remarkably reduced price too!).

When working with Shamir, it is clear from the very beginning that he is hard working, organized, and very determined. As a first time home buyer, the idea of purchasing my first home seemed incredibly daunting to me but Shamir remained incredibly patient and supportive throughout the entire process. He worked tirelessly to help me secure my dream condo. Not only that - I got it for the price I wanted with a few bonuses as well! I couldn’t be any happier - many thanks to Shamir.

Shamir Daya has been - to be frank - a magician, a tireless advocate and a sage advisor to us. In short order he managed to find us the perfect house and worked relentlessly on our behalf to finalize it. He also championed our interests in getting one of our houses sold in a way that removed all our stress. We are very frugal with providing recommendations but we are delighted to endorse Shamir without reservation. He never stops working for you, always listens to your needs and wants, and is a top notch individual.

We couldn't have asked for a better agent. We are incredibly thankful to have Shamir help us find the perfect home through every step of the process. He is an honest, personable and knowledgable realtor that puts his clients first. He was very quick to respond, patient with our many requests and never lost sight of what our main priorities were. We highly recommend Shamir for anyone looking to buy a home!

"Shamir is a very knowledgeable broker, a true professional, a great businessman. Initially we met with Shamir, and outlined our goals: we were looking for a new home, a good investment, and we were not willing to overspend. Three things which don’t always go together, especially in a competitive market. Shamir worked tirelessly, whether it was our first offer or our last: always accessible and knowledgeable, driven to achieve the results we desired. At times when we were ready to throw in the towel, Shamir brought a refreshing enthusiasm and positive attitude to every challenge. At the end of our journey, we have achieved all of our goals, and ultimately found exactly what we were looking for. We could not be happier with the outcome, and the deal would not have happened without Shamir."

"Shamir was a great help to us when buying our first home. He kindly met with us in the early stages of just entertaining the idea of home ownership. He shared his expertise with us and gave us the tools and information we needed to decided what kind of home we were looking for. He tailored his approach to our wants and needs while remaining professional. When we were ready to put an offer on a house, he was there every step of the way."

"Shamir gets the job done. He kept the search for our first home fun, stress-free and was always accessible. I echo other's comments that Shamir has a serious intuition for what his clients are looking for. His passion for real estate and depth of knowledge of the Ottawa housing market makes him a great resource to have on your side, whether you are looking to purchase or sell a property."

Shamir is a true professional and hard working individual. His passion, knowledge, and overall drive to succeed is highly contagious. Shamir lead me through the sale of one property and is currently in the process of finding that next investment opportunity. Working with Shamir through this deal has been seamless and overall a great experience. I would recommend him to all my friends and family with confidence.

Shamir is the consummate modern professional - accessible, hard working, knowledgeable, great attention to detail, good intuition into what his clients are feeling, customer service oriented and did I mention hard working? For our first home purchase, Shamir expertly lead us through the steps of buying a gem of a property he found for us and performed brilliantly throughout the entire process. I have no reservations about referring all my friends and family to Shamir because I know they will be in good hands.

"We consider ourselves lucky to have come across Shamir. We met him at an open house and it was evident from the start that he is organized and has a great sense of style. He used our (very specific) criteria to help us find a house we love. While working with Shamir he was always quick to send us new listings and was helpful in searching for houses that met our budget and must haves. He even went above and beyond to find us expired listings as well. He was responsive to messages and was quick to answer any questions. Shamir was also willing to work with our hours and work schedule that was at times limited. One of Shamir’s great qualities is his acute attention to detail. He notices potential pain points as you walk through open houses and doesn’t hesitate to share his opinion and knowledge. Overall we would highly recommend Shamir as a professional real estate agent and a kind person. We are grateful for all of his help and support. We have already shared his business card with some friends who are just beginning to explore the market."
