a little about Ann Jensen

I grew up living in different cities all over Canada and Europe before I settled in Ottawa to attend nursing school. After 15 years in nursing, I owned and operated a women’s clothing shop in Manotick for 12 years. I was actively involved in the business community and I served as President of the Manotick Business Improvement Area. I now live in Riverside South with my husband and we enjoy spending time with our two children and three grandchildren who all live in the Ottawa area. I love to golf in the summer and curl in the winter.

Living in many cities and all those moves fostered my interest in real estate at an early age. As real estate was always a passion I finally decided to pursue my dream job. It’s never too late to start a new career! I strive to bring a positive and encouraging attitude to everything I do, and I look forward to working with you through every step of the buying or selling process.

Testimonials

“As a first-time seller, Ann was very good at guiding me through the entire process.  She offered great services in advance to ensure the house was looking its best for sale, gave great advice and information throughout the selling process and was quick to respond during the follow-up and back and forth that happened leading up to the closing date.  Everything ran smoothly and felt super easy and stress-free thanks to Ann!”

Catherine

“Our experience with the Ann(e) team was enjoyable from beginning to end.  This was our first time selling a home and Ann was key to making the experience simple and straightforward for us.  She answered all our questions and provided support beyond our expectations.  I would gladly recommend Ann to anyone!”

Keri and Brendan

“Working with The Ann(e) Team was a wonderful experience.  Ann Jensen took the time to get to know not just Brad and myself, but our family as well.   Ann genuinely took interest into what kind of home we were looking for as we had outgrown our starter home. When our current home became available, she immediately thought of our family and our needs.  Ann quickly guided us through the process of making an offer and ultimately the purchase of our wonderful new home.  Expertly, Ann then helped us ready our former home for sale, navigated the multiple offers and facilitated the final sale.  During the period that we were listing our home we received tragic news about a family member’s illness. The compassion Ann and Anne showed our family went well above the relationship we expected a realtor to have with a client. We cannot thank Ann enough for her support and patience during a very stressful event in our lives. Without reservation, we highly recommend The Ann(e) Team to anyone wishing to buy or sell their home.”

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you once again for listing and selling our home in under a week.  This is the second time in two years that you have made us feel confident that we had chosen the right Realtors.  We would not hesitate to refer you to friends and neighbours.

Thank you again.”

In the end, selecting a realtor is much about trust, trusting that they always have your best interest at heart. With Ann and Anne, we definitely made the right choice.  We would recommend their service to anyone looking to purchase a home, and will without a doubt, return for our own future housing needs.”

 Stream and Stephanie

“It’s been a while since the sale of our Riverside South home. Upon reflection, I  now appreciate much more  your expert  research in finding the real worth of our home and in tracking the market trends. We were grateful to you and your many experts  to  mend, polish and stage our home for the sophisticated Ottawa buyers. It was heartening to know you and your team were always available. Your support all through the showings and sale process made the business seem easy.  Thanks to the Anne team for everything.”

“Thanks so much for such a great experience in buying our investment property. The location and home are spot on to the type of rental market we were interested in becoming a part of.

You are the best Realtor we have ever met with regards to genuine warmth, interest in our search, professionalism and calmness. We felt very comfortable with you acting on our behalf.”

Laura & Paul

“Now that things have settled a bit we just wanted to thank-you for all of your help and support with our move. I never would have thought it was possible to buy a home, sell a home and move a home within a one month period, but you made it happen. We love that there was absolutely no pressure from you at any point during the process…from our first meeting at the open house to our last meeting over final paperwork. There was lots of encouragement and support when needed, and you seemed to know just what to say and when. We love our home and are so very appreciative of your help getting us here. Thanks so much”

Rob and Tracy

“Selling a home takes more than just putting up a ‘for sale’ sign on the house. Your experience, professionalism, positive attitude and encouragement helped not only sell the house in ONE week but also helped me through the process. Simply Amazing Ann! Your dedication, commitment and helpfulness are things that I will never forget. Because of you Ann, the experience was not stressful and you were able to make great suggestions and provide great support. I am truly blessed to have had you represent me as my real estate agent. You are not only a knowledgeable agent but someone who makes people feel at ease and comfortable within the situation. I highly recommend calling Ann if you require any help selling or buying a home. She is efficient, knowledgeable, and an amazing person who will look out for you and help you achieve your goal. Thanks so much for everything.”

What Buyers & Sellers are saying about working with Anne:

Hi Anne,

For a long time we had heard our friends and neighbors talk about the wonderful moving experiences they had with you as an agent. Based on this alone we had already decided that when it came time for us to do the “Riverside South Shuffle”, we were going to call you first. There is no way we could possibly communicate how thrilled we have been to work with you during this move. The window of time between purchase, sale and move was so small that we had to rely heavily on your experience and networking to get everything done on time. You knew who to contact, which paperwork to complete, and the most efficient way to make things happen. We also greatly appreciated the fact that you were easy to find if we had a question and were always able to keep things upbeat. We had no idea that there were still real estate agents like you out there: people who genuinely want what’s best for their clients. We love our new home and are so very appreciative of the excellent service you provided.
Tracy and Rob

Hi Anne,
Finally had a moment of rest from the packing and decided I needed to let you know how much I appreciate all you did for me during the “for sale” period. You surely know the business and your clients well. When my optimism was sagging, your enthusiasm and support kept me focused and positive. You are the only realtor I would trust to sell my house – thank you for being a true professional and a wonderful person!

Just a note to say what a great real estate agent you are. We really appreciated the fact that you did not pressure us and just went with the flow.
As I told you – we both (especially me) hate buying a house or a car because of the back and forth carrying on and the strain. There seemed to be none of that.
You are good at your job – way to go.
Ray & Judy

“I always knew that when I sold my house I would want to sell it with you. You have an amazing reputation for going above and beyond for your clients and we were thrilled when we worked with you and discovered that all the wonderful things that we had heard about you were true. You gave us great advice about what needed to be done in our home to have it sell and sold both of our homes quickly and for top dollar. I was very overwhelmed when we first met, having found the house of my dreams and needing to get my house on the market in a matter of days. However, you walked me through each of the steps in the process and I felt very reassured to know that you were in this adventure with us. You went so much further than we expected, always making yourself available and taking the time to address our questions and concerns, and this great service continued even after the houses were sold. We always felt like your number one priority even though you had many clients. So our very heartfelt thanks go out to you. We have no hesitation about recommending you to all of our friends. With thanks,”
Sarah and Benson

“After 2 months listed with another agent where we experienced limited viewings and no offers, we were frustrated and anxious! Friends referred us to you and promised that you were understanding, supportive, honest, caring, matter-of-fact, realistic, and that you would take the time to get to know us as people. They also told us that once we met and worked with you, you would be in ours lives forever.

Everything they said was true, and more! You kept us focused on the goal; you gave us permission to let you stress about selling the house and you told us to relax and focus on other important life events (which was important as we had some difficult family events occurring at that time); you always checked in with us to see how our family was doing; when we were discouraged you were empathic and caring yet you also grounded us in the reality of the situation; when we got an offer you expertly mediated to get us on the same page; you were in touch with us via phone, text message, or email every step of the way; you kept us calm in the midst of chaos when the offer was pending; and you celebrated with us when the “sold” sign finally went up!

Since our home was listed with you for 3 weeks prior to selling, we only had the pleasure of working with you for a short period of time. However, we know that you will be a part of our lives for many years to come, and we are singing your praises to everyone we know! We are so thankful we made the decision to have you as our real estate agent! You are truly a gem! With the utmost respect and appreciation.”
Ellen Waxman-Caron and Adam Caron

“I want to let you know how much I truly appreciate all your help dealing with Mom. I didn’t think she was going to stay in the residence. You’ve come through again helping us to sell our second house. I thought that this trans Formation was going to be harder because of the time constraints. I don’t question your skills when it comes to knowing what sells and how to present it to sell. You know how to stage, that’s why I came back.

The painter loved the colours you selected, actually everybody loved them. My personal taste is so far from the final result and yet, I loved it! It all happened in record time. Thank you Anne.”
Elizabeth Anne Mercier

” You are a life saver! After having my condo listed with another agent for almost 9 months and no luck in selling it, you had it sold in less than a month and during the month of December! I know my condo was a beautiful home, which made it all the more frustrating to understand why it was not selling! You came into my home and told me that yes, it was beautiful, but if I wanted to sell it quickly, I needed to take out the (NEW and upgraded) carpeting and put in hardwood floors. You also asked me to replace any light fixtures I planned on taking with me so that when people came to view the condo, they knew exactly what came with it. Highlighting all of the features in my home with feature cards was very impressive and ensured that nothing was overlooked during showings. I followed all of your suggestions and within 3 weeks, you brought me not one, but two offers! The condo is SOLD at a price I am very happy with and I can now breath easy. You obviously know the market and what buyers are looking for. Thank you so much for your honesty and encouragement. Please feel free to use this letter for any future clients who may ask for past references. Sincerely,”
Lori Hewson

“Wow – sold in 5 days – amazing!!! We want to Thank you for a wonderful experience. This was our first time selling, it was so stress free I would do it again with you in a heart beat. I just have to convince Nelson, and let his back heal! You made us feel so at ease with your knowledge, advice and confidence, you always kept us well in Formed, and were very reassuring. You came so highly recommended, so we were not surprised by the pleasurable experience we had with you. Your friendship has become a true blessing. Thanks for everything”

“Results speak loud and clear for Denise and I after our home was sold in just 6 days. Your expert guidance through the process was what made the “Steinberg Difference” stand out from our past experiences selling properties. Thank you for all you have done for us and I can assure you we will be more than happy to recommend you to our friends and family. Kindest Regards.”
Rod Prosser & Denise Maccio

“What can I say? You are very, very good at what you do! We were negotiating an offer within two days of listing! The entire process was handled so professionally and stress-free! As first-time home sellers we appreciated your knowledge and experience and the personal attention you gave us. Thanks for everything Anne.”
Amber & Brent

“Thank you again so very much for everything you have done for us in the transition to our new house. We were grateful to have you by our side as first time home buyers guiding us through the process and have been equally appreciative to have you by our side again. This second time around buying and selling a home has been such an involved process and we certainly wouldn’t have wanted to do it without you. Thanks to all your hard work and attention to detail everything went smoothly and we can now focus with peace of mind on making our new house a home. All the very best,”
Scott, Yvonne and Theo

“Once again a great experience working with you! Thank you for making this experience stress free, quick and fun!! Cheers”
Ann & Charlene

“Life has finally calmed down enough for me to sit down & let you know how much we enjoyed working with you on the purchase of our home. You were fun and upbeat which I personally found great given the two failed offers we went through. You helped answer all of our questions, and we were both pleased with how fast you’d get back to us. Now we are pretty much settled in our home and love it more each day. We would love for you to come and share a glass of wine with us! Thank you so very much.”
Alicia & Derek

“You are now known in our circle of friends as our “Miracle Worker”. You turned a very difficult and emotional downsizing event into a stress-free, exciting process that could not have gone more smoothly. It seemed unbelievable to us that you immediately found a buyer who loved our home and met all of our conditions. We were very impressed with your expert business knowledge, your attention to detail and your friendly, personal touch that kept us calm and in Formed, every step of the way. Thank you for your outstanding service and for making this move happen so effortlessly. We will now be highly recommending your services to anyone we know who might be contemplating a move.”
