Helen Burton is a very knowledge real estate agent and will provide you with great advice to sell or buy a home.  We all know that selling and buying a home is a very emotional and stressful experience.  So imagine having an agent that has compassion, devotion and loyalty while going through that experience.  This is what Helen offered me during that experience.  Helen has shown rigor in preparing all the documents and agreements for buying and selling your property to ensure maximum security for her customer.  She also has strong marketing skills in creating promotional documents to showcase the best attributes of your home.  Helen's determination is definitely an asset to review your marketing strategy to get the best results of selling and buying a home.  Finally, selling and buying a home is one of  the most important decision that you will make in your life, and Helen is very accessible outside of meetings and showings to help you make that big decision. 
Helen, Thank you for all your work, devotion and support through this stressful experience but very rewarding having you alongside in making the best decision.  I strongly recommend Helen.

"One word describes Helen very well: dedication. As we look for a house in Western Ottawa, Helen has tirelessly offered her kindness and professional assistance. Quick to reply to emails and various requests, she does not only reply to your emails: she replies in full details. Helen does not give up, does not abandon you once the house is found or bought: she will accompany you through the whole process with patience and kindness – explaining in full details all factors to be taken into account. Helen offers a support and constancy far beyond what most realtors are willing to offer."

I recently had the pleasure of working with Helen, whom I have known for many years, to sell my aunt's property. As it was an estate sale, we encountered many different issues to which Helen responded quickly and her advice, knowledge, and guidance to me was invaluable. She went above and beyond what one would expect, and as I do not live in Ottawa, she took the extra time to make sure that all was in good order. Her professionalism and integrity, together with her friendly and approachable personality, make her an excellent real estate agent! I don't know what I would have done without her, and in my case, the fact that she was bilingual was very helpful, too. Thank you very much Helen! You are a wonderful asset to your profession!! I highly recommend Helen to anyone who is looking for a real estate agent.

One thing that we really appreciated about Helen is the speed in which she would reply to emails or phone calls. As a family searching for a house from out of town, it can be quite painful waiting for responses when every minute counts. But Helen makes you feel like you are her first  priority and is "on call" 24-7. While signing our purchasing offers and knowing that we were a large family, she was happy to meet us at a hotel lobby, local swimming pool and a grocery parking lot, instead of asking us to come to her office. She also provides you with information that other realtors may neglect. We were impressed by the way that she called a local school on our behalf in order to acquire some pertinent information. We appreciated those sorts of extra steps that made a house hunting trip go easier. Thank you.

I had previously worked with Helen in the high-tech sector, so I already knew going in of her professionalism, attention to detail, and her congenial personality. Helen shows those same attributes as a real estate agent. Helen and I discussed my requirements, and she quickly located several potential homes for purchase. We had a great time visiting these homes on a cold January morning. Once I had made my choice, Helen thoroughly and carefully walked me through the next steps in the purchase process, and followed up with the home inspection and reminders of my tasks and responsibilities. Helen is organized, responsive, and stays on top of things extremely well. I don’t think the process could have gone any smoother. Thanks again, Helen – it’s been great working with you again!

Helen Burton recently sold our home, in less than two weeks. She helped with staging advice, flyers, open house invitations and much more. In short, she went above and beyond what I would have normally expected from my listing agent.  Helen is a hard worker and a great asset to Royal Lepage. I highly recommend her.

With a in-depth knowledge of military postings, Helen was able to guide us through a myriad of housing selections and options. Amazingly, we found our dream home on the first day and quickly closed the deal. Her market knowledge, availability, and understanding made our house hunting trip that much easier.

Helen was recommended to me by my broker. Upon my first phone conversation with her, she knew how to make me comfortable and it was evident to me just how organized and professional  She is. As a first time home buyer, I could not have found a better Realtor. Helen's approach is very supportive, patient, honest, loyal and professional.  Since day one, she has provided me with excellent advice; She would listen to my needs, provide mountains of information based on experience, and  countless tips that I (first time Home buyer) would have never thought to take under consideration. She then, would let me take the time I need to make up my mind, while standing by me all the way.
Helen's  knowledge is truly second to none and she knows who to recommend (inspectors, lawyers, etc.) to make the whole process as seamless as possible. She is very detail-oriented and takes the time to explain the confusing elements of real estate very clearly. She will also ensure every “i” is dotted and every “t” is crossed with respect to all the contracts and negotiations.
Helen, I want to thank you for all your help in finding and getting my place.  I am truly grateful. I thank you for your patience and willingness to show me so many properties without pushing me in any way to take a rushed decision, it’s also great how you managed to give me enough information about the Home purchasing  process and in the same time keeping it simple enough for a first-time Home buyer like me. THANK YOU!

Helen’s high energy and enthusiasm for real estate in general and decorating in particular were evident the first time we met with her. Her attention to detail ensured that nothing was overlooked. She was always positive and cheerful while guiding us through the process. She went the extra mile with staging our home for open houses and marketing it widely within and outside our neighborhood. Her efforts paid off and our home was sold in only four days. We would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a dedicated, professional real estate agent.

Helen is a fantastic agent and I was very lucky to find her.  Her dedication and hard work are evident in the results she earns for her clients.  I was nervous about selling my first home and but Helen helped me through every step, making even the offer and negotiation process smooth and pleasant.  She is energetic, organized, and proactive; because of this, my property sold in 48 hours above the appraised value - in a buyer's market.  Many thanks to Helen for her professionalism, diligence, and good guidance.

My husband and I recently bought a home in the Sandy Hill area in Ottawa. Helen Burton was our agent. We were most impressed by her knowledge of the market, both from the perspective of buying and providing insights into resale potential should we consider ‘upgrading’ or moving within the area at a future date. This was important as it gave us a sense of confidence that the purchase we were making was the right one for our needs.
The seller of the home we purchased was selling privately. There were several instances during the negotiation process where Helen demonstrated to us that her expertise is much more than putting a sign on the lawn and completing a sale. Issues relating to legal documents, requirements and responsibilities on the part of the seller which needed to be provided or arranged prior to closing were issues that Helen dealt with on our behalf – to protect us! We are most grateful for this expertise! I even suggested to the seller that he consider using Helen’s services should he be looking to purchase another home!
Helen’s attention to detail, knowledge of the market, her friendly attitude and availability to ‘be there’ when we needed her all contributed to a very positive buying experience for my family. Helen demonstrates professionalism, integrity and business acumen – all key ingredients to closing the sale!!!
We highly recommend her services to anyone looking to buy or sell their property. They will not be disappointed!

We really enjoyed having Helen as our real estate agent! She was patient, helpful and knowledgeable, and she truly looked after our best interests. She went above and beyond to make sure we bought the right house for our family and our specific needs.
We first met Helen at an open house and were drawn to her because she had lots of information about the real estate market and especially information for people like us: first time home buyers. Helen put together packages of information for us pertaining to both condos and rural properties. That was important to us because at the time we weren't’t sure if we wanted to buy in the country or the city. Once we started looking at houses, she was willing to look at a wide variety to help us narrow down the area and type of house we were looking for.
Our search took us to a few different places that we thought we liked and even so much as to put an offer on them. Helen was very helpful and thorough when it came to doing all the paperwork. She also helped steer us in the right direction in terms of the offer to make, by doing market comparisons and taking into account any issues that had turned up on the home inspection.
All her help and guidance eventually led us to the home of our dreams and we couldn’t be happier! We bought a house in the city that backs on to acres and acres of green space. We were able to have some country living while also being close to shopping centers and work. We have been very pleased with the trust and comfort we felt while working with Helen. We know if you choose Helen she will do everything she can to make sure you have the happy ending that we did!

Working with Helen was a pleasure.  She was highly motivated, energetic, and knowledgeable making the sale of our house quick and effortless.  Our house sold in a matter of days with only one open house.  We have Helen to thank for ensuring that all the details were handled professionally and with minimal intrusion to our daily routines.  Thanks very much Helen and I look forward to working with you on my next purchase.

As a first-time home seller a friend recommended Helen Burton as a Real Estate Agent. Selling a home can be overwhelming and challenging, but Helen guided me through the procedure and successfully sold my home within weeks.
Throughout the entire process, Helen was highly dedicated, reliable and trustworthy. Her outstanding professionalism and expertise in the Real Estate business was tremendous by always being available to answer questions or concerns.
It was a pleasure working with Helen and I highly recommend her services to future clients.
