You Exceeded Our Expectations
Mon Jun 05, 2017
A few hours ago, we have completed the sale of our home after being on the market for only 5 days (!) and I wanted to give feedback on the truly outstanding work your company - and especially the sales agent we have worked with: Dora Bejaoui - does.
I am a regular radio listener, so I have heard about Paul Rushforth Real Estate from the radio shows, your ads in the media, and of course I have seen your cars on the road and in the vicinity of your Kanata office. This suggested to me that you must be a top brand but we did not want to fall just for this image, we wanted to make sure, that there is enough substance behind this image. Thus, we decided to interview 3 agents, some from other well known, well advertised, top agencies in town. However, selecting Dora was a very easy choice: we were so impressed by her personality, style, professionalism and especially her factual, objective analysis of the data, that it was no question that we will go with her. Since both me and my wife are engineers by trade, - who believe in hard, objective data, - this latter characteristic was especially appealing to us. We believe that Dora's science background really transfers to her way of doing business in the real estate sector and makes her to stand out from the other sales agents. Another thing in which Dora clearly stood out was her understanding of the philosophy of our house. This means that she was able to look at it not just as a sum of elements (such as hardwood, granite countertop, finished basement, etc.) but rather as a whole, in engineering terms as a "system", in which the flow, or harmony, or interaction of these elements is more important than the pure list of them. This type of understanding of our property was clearly missing from the other agents.
The end result is: thanks to Dora we had showings on a daily basis and we got an offer on only the 4th day of being on the market. We have completed the sale on day 6 (today) by getting 98.2% of the asking price and - thanks to Dora's outstanding negotiating skills - the closing date we wanted. What an excellent work from her and what an excellent, innovative system of selling properties you have! It does truly work.
Dear Paul: I wanted to thank you and Dora for working with us and for getting our home sold at a price, timeframe and conditions, which exceed our expectations.

We Sold in 2 Weeks!
Mon Sep 19, 2016
After a long struggle to sell my property through other avenues, I enlisted the help of Dora Bejaoui at Paul Rushforth Real Estate. She was efficient, knowledgeable and went to work very quickly to get my place sold. We sold in 2 weeks and I couldnt be happier with the service that was provided to me. I appreciate that Dora went the extra mile to provide me with all the information I needed to price the property right, and get it ready for viewings. I definitely recommend Paul Rushforth Real Estate as well as endorse Dora for her great job on getting my place sold!

I also felt a warmth of her understanding
Mon Mar 07, 2016
I interviewed 6 real estate agents some of whom were asking a smaller fee. Dora Bejaoui's initial presentation was comprehensive and impressive as she outlined the prices of homes in our area and shared her track record of sales. I also felt a warmth of her understanding of how stressful it was to move houses after 30 years. I was not disappointed. She helped us with staging our house and in one week sold our house at top price and found us an afforadable bungalow in the area we wanted. Thank you Dora!
MLS on Monday, Sold on Wednesday
Mon Feb 01, 2016
An incredible experience made possible by Dora, an amazing agent! It went like this: MLS on Monday, 7 showings on Tuesday and 4 offers on Wednesday--SOLD the same day. It was that easy! Thank you Paul Rushforth Real Estate, I'd recommend you to anyone.
Fabulous to Deal With
Tue Oct 13, 2015
Dora Bejaoui is our agent and she is fabulous to deal with. We bought a condo after seeing two and then put our house up for sale and within 7 days listed on MLS it was sold. We thank Dora and we are very happy to have delt with Paul Rushforth Real Estate.

We can not say enough about our experience.
Sat Jun 20, 2015
My husband Osmel and I just purchased our first home in December 2015, Thank you to the amazing help from Dora. We started our house searching journey a few years ago (if you can actually believe that). We started with a reference from my mother, who then sent us to another one of his agents, who tried to sell us on ideas that were completely different from what we asked for. We have known exactly what we wanted the whole time. We ended up getting spammed with houses (constantly), houses that we did not want at all. So we moved on to a different agent (who was listed on a house we wanted to see). After about 4-5 agents, we ended up just spamming us with random houses that did not match our criteria at all. We felt very determined, yet no one seemed to actually want to do any work to help us find the house we wanted.
Until we called Kevin Pryce. His name was listed on a house we really wanted to see. We called him with only the expectation to see the one house and keep searching on our own if that one didn't work out. Kevin was very understanding, and not pushy at all. He listened to our needs, offered some assistance to which we were a little hesitant based on our past experience. He set up an appointment for us to see the house with Dora very quickly. I believe we saw the house only a day or two after we called. Dora was very personable and welcoming. She showed us the house and discussed with us what exactly we were looking for, she went far beyond our expectations with finding us what we wanted. I don't believe we skipped any house she sent us. She really understood what we wanted. She went through the searched houses by hand to choose only the houses she knew we really wanted. We felt valued and important, and that she actually cared about us as people. Not just customers.
She even worked her butt off for us to get a house she wasn't even going to get much commission off of (because the sellers were simply horrible). Thankfully, for us and Dora, that purchase did not go through.
We finally happened upon the house we now live in, thanks to Dora's tireless efforts.
Our home buying experience did not end there, she walked us through every step of inspections, mortgage and closing. She truly became a part of our family. To our 3 yr old, she is "The real Dora". After we finally closed, we came to the house to prepare it for moving our stuff, and found a gorgeous welcome basket, AND even a goodie bag for our daughter. This was already far from what we expected in home buying, but when she gave us an IPad, we were like little kids again. And even more, she invited us to watch a Senators game in the Suite. My husband and I couldn't believe this. How were we possibly being rewarded for receiving amazing service?
We were sad to hear that you and Dora would not be able to make it to the game. But we had an experience of a lifetime, and your family was so welcoming and friendly. We were so nervous going there, and they made us feel so normal for being so excited hehe. It was our first date night since our second daughter was born. This was not just any ordinary date night. This was a once in a lifetime experience we will never forget.
I want to thank You, Dora and Kevin, for truly enhancing our lives in so many ways.
Since purchasing our house, we have been talking about Dora to all of our friends. We can not say enough about our experience.
Thank you again so much!
