Brian was instrumental , from the start to finish, in making the sale of my late Father's home as seamless and enjoyable as possible. The home was "lived-in" for 30 years , and lot's of work was needed to get it sale ready. My daughter and I were overwhelmed with the amount of work that was needed, however, Brian eased our minds from the beginning. He gave practical advice on what exactly was needed to prep the home for sale; over the course of several weeks, Brian was present every step of the way, answering questions and providing helpful oversight/guidance. His strategy worked, and the home sold within a week. We are so incredibly grateful for Brian and his expertise, kindness and efficiency. Thank you Brian!
Deborah Kelly, Ottawa
Brian was recommended to me from colleague of mine at work. He came across as a very honest agent and we appreciated the fact that he didn't try to oversell us with some pie in the sky overvaluation of our home. Brian's strategy worked for the sale of our home. We ended up getting many offers after being on the market for one week. We were happy with what we got for it and I would not hesitate to use Brian again.
Brian Darmanie, Orleans
We first started working with Brian long before we decided to move. At the time we were contemplating a major renovation, but thought that we should consider the option of moving as well. Throughout our decision-making process, he was always eager to arrange showings of prospective houses, and took lots of time to guide us through preparations to market our current home, in the event that we found, “the one.” Brian always made us feel like his most important clients, even though we weren’t sure that a move was actually going to happen.
After a few quiet months with very low inventory across the region, Brian flagged a promising listing - it was in the right price range, the right neighbourhood, and with all the work that we were considering for our current home already completed. We decided that this one was worth a second look. Long story short, Brian made the submission of our offer his top priority. With multiple offers pending and leveraging Brian’s experience, we were able to secure our agreement to purchase. Brian stayed closely involved through to the closing of our deal, helped ensure our inspection findings were addressed to our satisfaction, and made sure everything was in order as we moved into our new home.
Once our purchase agreement was set, Brian provided us with excellent advice and guidance in marketing our current. His online marketing, video and the materials prepared for our showings were all top quality and did an excellent job of showcasing our home. This transaction also had multiple offers on the table and we were very pleased with the outcome and grateful for the service provided by Brian in managing our sale.
If you’re looking for an agent who will take the time to understand your needs, represent you with integrity, and strive to provide the highest quality of service, we would not hesitate to recommend Brian to any of our friends or family.
Dave and Karen, Manotick
We had worked with a few agents before we met Brian and just couldn’t find the right fit..... until Brian came along. We were so thankful to have Brian as an agent in not only selling our home but purchasing our forever dream home. It was very emotional for my husband and I to sell our home but Brian made the transition so easy for us. His professionalism is beyond appreciated and as well, he is a very empathetic individual that is not in this industry just solely to make money. He makes it quite clear through his words and actions that he does this for his clients. To see them happy is his number one goal. Wow did he make that apparent. He was always easy to get a hold of day or night. Was quick to get back to with any info he may have received. We saw so many homes within and out of our budget. His philosophy on seeing homes in and out of budget is that, the client gets to envision themselves in something they may not have ever seen themselves in (Which happened for us) and or see themselves not in something they actually thought they wanted (Which again happened for us). Brian treats his clients not only as his clients but as if we were friends for years. It was so easy from the start for my husband and I to like him. He’s the type of person that draws people in. Very easy to speak with, explain your wants, needs and dislikes too. Sometimes in their industry, agents can be a little pushy and not make you feel like you’re in this adventure together. Like I said, Brian is the complete opposite and made selling and buying such an enjoyable and exciting time for my family and I. Thank you for the opportunity in not only meeting you Brian but thank you for making it so easy to put our trust into you to sell our home and sell us our forever home.
Chels F, Manotick
It was a pleasure working with Brian even with the unpredictable market. He helped navigate offers on a few different homes and encouraged us to make offers within our means. He was always available to us for viewings over the course of a year long search and helped us land an amazing home which, on paper, did not meet our search criteria but had everything we were looking for. We are very happy where we landed and highly recommend Brian for your own house search.
Stephen S, Stittsville
Brian recently helped us to buy and sell our home, and previously in the purchase of a cottage property. His calm demeanour and straight forward approach is really helpful in today’s uncertain real estate market. He took his time to help us properly price our previous house and put together a strong, but reasonable offer on the home we recently moved into. Buying a home can be an emotional experience and Brian ensured we didn’t over-invest ourselves and make any rash decisions while balancing our needs and ensuring we found a place we would love for years to come. As our selling agent, he created a strong plan of action that generated a lot of interest and ultimately led to us selling for a price that was easy to accept. He is extremely patient and takes on a lot of the stressful aspects of selling and buying a new home himself so we could focus on our family during a very stressful event. When you use Brian as your real estate agent you are getting a fair, transparent, and reliable partner in the entire process. My family and I have and will continue to recommend Brian to anyone looking to buy or sell their property.
Katherine & Tyler, Richmond
We went to Brian Kusiewicz to help sell our 85-year-old fathers' home. Brian was excellent. He gave us great advice to properly stage the house prior to listing and a few other surprising tips! The professional photos and drone footage for the property not only showed the house in the best possible light but also the surrounding neighborhood. Brian was there every step of the way and was always in constant contact with everyone involved. There were plenty of showings and offers on the property. Brian was great and very patient explaining everything to our Father, so he fully understood everything in the offers. We could not have had a better experience with Brian and would recommend him to everyone. What could have been a very stressful time for my father and the rest of us, turned out to be very smooth and professional. Thanks, Brian, for everything!
Kevin C, Ottawa
We used Brian to help us sell our house in Ottawa. Brian came highly recommended by friends that used his service. Brian did an amazing job of providing great information to get our house ready with his ideas of what the market is looking. Brian helped every step of the way as we got ready to sell. He was there to answer all our questions and provided us with a great service. I would and have recommended his services to friends who are looking to sell or buy. Thanks again Brian for all your hard work. I would highly recommend his service
Scott and Maureen, Carp
House hunting in general can be daunting. Here we are anxious, nervous and looking for our first home all while in a global pandemic was one for the books. That's when my sister Bridgette referred us to Brian. We were so nervous, full of jitters and had a long list of questions. Brian patiently listened, answers all our questions and phone calls. He listened to all our wants and needs taking everything into consideration. We're so happy to finally find our family home. Thank-you so much Brian for fulfilling our first home dreams

Chelsea & Stephen Fulton, Manotick and Woodlawn
I was very pleased with Brian Kusiewicz both times we bought our places. He came highly recommended and he was very available and knowledgeable in the different areas around Ottawa and the prices as well. We moved here from the GTA and had no idea where we wanted to live when we moved here 2 years ago. Brain sent me listing while we were in the GTA and went to the listing for us because we were not there to go many times. Brian always asked and listened to what we wanted in the price range and space we needed.
We recently bought and sold our property again and thanks to Brian he kept in touch with us and updated us that our condo went up in price and selling would be beneficial to us at this time. Brian sold our property very quickly and we bought as well in good timing.
We were very pleased with his service and knowledge and availability and most of all his Professionalism especially during the pandemic and he followed all the rules to keep us all safe. Thanks Brian!
Tracey and Joe, Riverside South
We have had the opportunity to work with Brian on more than one sales transaction and also recommended Brian to our daughter for her first home purchase. Brian provided professional advice and ongoing support that resulted in a smooth process for all of our transactions. We would choose Brian again and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone with real estate needs.
Greg and Donna Sarrazin, Richmond
Brian was a pleasure to work with in the stressful experience of buying and selling a home. His knowledge of the market and honest thoughts helped in making the experience much easier and enjoyable. Brian‘s commitment and exceptional marketing skills resulted in multiple offers and our house sold in six days, for over asking. Although we were unsure about whether we wanted to buy a house to renovate, a turn-key property, or a new build, Brian took the time to look at all of our options and provided us with advice and guidance on what would be the best fit for our family. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Brian to anyone looking for a positive real estate experience.
Katy and Luke, Stittsville
We recently used Brian as our realtor during a move across Canada from BC to Ottawa. I was referred to Brian from a future coworker and I'm very glad we chose Brian to assist us with purchasing a home in Ottawa. Before we came to Ottawa to look for a home, Brian was supplying us with listings, and answered all our many questions either on the phone or through e-mail. We only had 5 days to find a home which is very stressful, Brian was a great support to us and helped reduce the stress for us in a huge transition to another province. During our house hunting trip he was absolutely excellent, he promised he would dedicate his time to us during our house hunting trip, and he was true to his word. During our house search he was always available to answer questions, book last minute showings, booked our home inspection, and provided valuable information about real estate in Ottawa. Brian is very knowledgeable about Ottawa and really helped us focus our search as we knew very little about Ottawa. We love the location and home he helped us find. We found Brian to be very easy to work with, he is professional, honest, and he worked very hard for us! We would highly recommend Brian!
Dorothy and Paul, BC and Orleans
Brian made the process of selling our house a breeze. He provided us with open, honest feedback and communication. With prompt responses and a friendly demeanour he made the entire transaction seamless. Our home sold within 36 hours of being listed and we were thrilled. On top of that, Brian managed to work with us to find the house of our dreams. We couldn’t be happier with the service we received and would gladly recommend him to any of our friends and family.
Fiona and Nick, Richmond and Munster
We had the absolute pleasure of working with Brian when we were looking to purchase a new home and to sell our old home. He took a stressful situation and made it enjoyable! He gave us great ideas on how to get the most for our house, gave us contacts for little things that needed doing and was always there when we had questions. In the end, we received an offer we couldn’t refuse. We highly recommend Brian and he will be the person we call if we move again!
Cheryl and Shawn, Kanata & Merickville
As our family was looking at settling into our next house, Brian was key in helping us find the perfect home. He was with us every step of the way, making sure we were comfortable with the available properties and helping us identify the options that would be ideal for our family. We can't thank Brian enough for taking care of us and making sure we found the perfect home for our family. Thanks Brian!
Michelle and Tom, Rockland
We were your typical Love it or List it types, unsure of whether to take on a significant renovation project at our home, or move to another house that checked all the boxes for us. Thankfully, we had Brian in our corner. Throughout our decision-making process, he was always eager to arrange showings of prospective houses, and took lots of time to guide us through preparations to market our current home, in the event that we found, “the one.” Brian always made us feel like his most important clients, even though we weren’t sure that a move was actually going to happen.
After a few quiet months with very low inventory across the region, Brian flagged a promising listing in Manotick – it was in the right price range, the right neighbourhood, and with all the work that we were considering for our current home already completed. We decided that this one was worth a second look. Long story short, Brian made the submission of our offer his top priority. With multiple offers pending and leveraging Brian’s experience, we were able to secure our agreement to purchase. Brian stayed closely involved through to the closing of our deal, helped ensure our inspection findings were addressed to our satisfaction, and made sure everything was in order as we moved into our new home.
Once our purchase agreement was set, Brian provided us with excellent advice and guidance in marketing our home in Osgoode. His online marketing, video and the materials prepared for our showings were all top quality and did an excellent job of showcasing our home. This transaction also had multiple offers on the table and we were very pleased with the outcome and grateful for the service provided by Brian in managing our sale.
If you’re looking for an agent who will take the time to understand your needs, represent you with integrity, and strive to provide the highest quality of service, we would not hesitate to recommend Brian to any of our friends or family.
Karen and Dave, Osgoode and Manotick
It was a pleasure to work with Brian. He was always available to hear our questions and concerns about the purchase of our new home and the sale of our previous house. Brian was also kind enough to take some of his weekend to accommodate us and come with us to visit house in deep in the eastern country part. He was there too to guide us in our property choices, always professional and he knows is stuff. We would definitely recommend him at a 100%.
Thanks again for everything you did for us. We really did appreciate to work with you. 🙂
Gilles and Melissa, Plantagenet & Casselman
I was new to the Ottawa area & didn’t know where to start with regards to a new home purchase. Luckily my brother in law had met Brian through his place of employment and referred me to him. I’m glad he did. Brian went the extra mile for me & used his connections to help find me a mortgage broker as well as a home inspector. It was a rocky start at first as I looked at multiple homes and placed a couple of bids on a few properties only to be outbid. I was getting pretty discouraged but Brian stayed positive & helped me stay positive too. Eventually he found a property to my liking & within five minutes to my work! I was very pleased by the service Brian provided & highly recommend anyone looking for a knowledgeable & diligent realtor to go with Brian. You won’t be disappointed!
Todd S, Kanata
Brian, thank you for assisting us in finding the perfect home for our family. Your dedication, commitment and personal knowledge of the area made our journey to finding a home possible.
Ken and Tammy, Barrhaven
"In September, my wife and I sold our home in New Brunswick with the intention of purchasing a home in the Ottawa area to be closer to family. The company handling our relocation referred us to a buyer's agent in Ottawa. Short story--two months later after something less than a professional effort on his part, we were still without a house! At that time our son recommended Brian Kusewwicz at Coldwell Banker; within two weeks Brian had negotiated a good deal on a house in Smiths Falls. What a pleasure dealing with a professional who was personalble, focused, and absolutely determined to find us what we wanted--and delivered."
Wayne & Ann, Smiths Falls
"We worked with Brian in the summer to help us find a house in Kanata. The style of housing we were looking for was very popular and they were selling very fast once they were listed. Despite this tough environment, Brian was able to help us find the exact type of house we were looking for, all within our budget. He went the extra mile in taking us through potential houses and explained in detail the pros and cons of each, ensuring we made the right decision at the end of the day. We were very happy to work with Brian and will use him again if we ever move in the future – we highly recommend him!"
Gavin & Laura M, Kanata
"Brian was a terrific support through the entire process of selling our home as well as finding a new residence for our family. From the initial consultation and research on the market value and tip for how to best prepare to show the home, to being there during the inspection phases and advice along the way. The honest, straight forward conversations with Brian were invaluable when making such important lifestyle and financial decisions. I truly believe our family was guided safely and happily into our new home by him. We would and have recommend him to anyone seeking assistance selling or purchasing a home, a sincere thank you Brian for your professional and friendly support."
Donna & Family, Barrhaven
"We were first time home buyers, which can be pretty scary. Brian reassured us with his professionalism and his dedication to helping us find our forever home. He is a family man and understands the want to plan for the future. He helped us find a home that will allow us to grow into, instead of settling for a home that would be only good to us for the first few years. If it wasn't for his help, I don't believe we would've been able to find the house we now call our forever home."
Bridgette and Steve, Smiths Falls
"We want to share a bit about our experience when we purchased our home last year. Brian was our real estate agent. He did an excellent job for us. We gave him a list of the criteria for the home we were looking for, and the areas of the city we were interested in.
He provided us updated listings and allowed us to look online at all the photos and details, and gave us the opportunity to choose which ones we would want to pursue. Even for some that maybe we weren't sure of, he encouraged us to go with him to see them and made us feel comfortable and not rushed. He knew our situation well, and helped us with whatever we needed.
Negotiations with the selling agents, were always business-like, yet cordial. He always listened to any concerns and questions we may have had. Giving his opinion only when we asked. We have been in our new home for awhile now, and couldn't be happier. We would gladly recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate agent - buying or selling!"
Wayne and Marilyn, Kanata
As a military family moving to Ottawa, Brian was able to assist us with our search for the perfect house in the perfect neighbourhood. Being knowledgeable about the local area and the real estate market helped us tremendously narrowing down our house hunting. We appreciated Brian's no BS approach so much that we hired him to sell our house when we were posted out of the NCR. We highly recommend Brian to anyone wanting to buy or sell.
Francois and Stéphanie, Kanata
"This was our first interactions with a Realtor, and must admit that though we were originally hesitant, Brian made our experience quite memorable. He helped us navigate through the whole process with unfailing patience, and a tremendous amount of expertise. We were quite pleased with how quickly and smoothly our house went on the market, how it sold within six days at almost asking price, and how we purchased and moved into our new home within a month of putting in an offer. We would highly recommend Brian to anyone who is looking for an agent who is professional, knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile!"
Kris and Patricia, Orleans and Rockland
"My experience working with Brian was truly a positive experience. Brian was always punctual, professional yet down to earth, sociable and honest. My house was sold in 11 days and during that time I was out of province having my final visit with an ill family member. It was a stressful time, but Brian eased all the stresses I had about selling my house. He was compassionate to my situation and went above and beyond to make the process easy, fast and painless. I am thankful for choosing Brian as my realtor and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. Thank you and great job Brian!"
Sarah, Riverside South
"When we first met Brian at an open house a couple of years ago we had only just started toying with the idea of selling our home and buying something new. Patiently, over the next 2 years, Brian showed us many homes in and out of Ottawa until finally this past spring we found the home we were dreaming of!
Since we wanted to sell our house first and buy after, we had to do it quickly so no one would put an offer on our future home. Brian helped us come up with a price that would help sell fast and still make us come out on top. Within hours of putting the sign up we had our first showing, the following day we had another and 2 days after that we had an offer. In a little over a week our house was conditionally sold!
Once our house was sold we put an offer on the new one and though things got a little difficult with the purchase, Brian was very calm and professional throughout the whole process. He helped guide us and was present for all the inspections required (home, septic, well & WETT) and was always available if we had any questions or paperwork that had to be signed. He really stepped up to the plate for us on numerous occasions so we could finally buy our dream home! We really enjoyed working with Brian and would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home."
The Browns, Nepean and Carleton Place
"Like all of us I think I would have preferred to sell my house myself and keep the commission, with a career and children it is just not realistic. Having said that, working with Brian Kusiewicz on both the finding of our new home and the sale of our existing one has changed my perception of Real Estate Agents. Brian patiently showed us many new homes as they came on the market and after months of searching we found our dream home. At this point he worked closely with us to complete all the due diligence required. On inspection day he spent the whole day with us at the new property helping with any questions we may have not considered to ask. Once complete he immediately took action on selling our current place. The pricing, listing and presentation of our house allowed us to sell in three days and receive over our asking price…we were so pleased.
Brian has a comfortable, low pressure style that worked perfectly for us and we would enthusiastically recommend him to family and friends. If you are worried about the complexity of buying, or concerned you don’t know the right questions to ask when you find a property you love…please call Brian. He will make you feel at home, finding your new home.
Scott and Tasha, Manotick
"It was around this time last year that I began a new career path which would potentially require me to move away. Brian Kusiewicz was my immediate choice to use as my realtor because I have seen how successful he has been as a realtor in such a short time. We immediately sat down and discussed all the possibilities that could occur based on my new career. He outlined a plan for all contingencies and made sure I understood all of my options.
It was in late May when I found out that my new career would require me moving to Southern Ontario and with that, Brian's plan was put into action. He looked at all the comparable properties in my neighborhood and the historical pricing over the past few years. He came up with a very aggressive listing price which concerned me at first with several properties in the neighborhood up for sale at the same time. I trusted his experience and it paid off. Within one week, we had multiple showings and an offer. We sat down to discuss the offer and options and we came back with an aggressive counter offer which was accepted.
In just over a week, Brian listed my house and it was sold before the scheduled open house!!! With the stresses of starting a new career and moving to a new city, Brian made that transition seem effortless from start to finish. Also, Brian went the extra mile by spending time with me showing me properties online in Southern Ontario and setting me up with a realtor in that city to help me find a new home. I would recommend Brian Kusiewicz to anyone who is looking to buy or sell real estate, you won't regret it!"
Jeff L, Ottawa
"We had a tough job for Brian when he agreed to work with us – sell two homes and find a new one that fulfilled a big wish list for our newly blended family. His knowledge of the Ottawa real estate market was fantastic and far reaching which was very important for us as we were buying and selling in completely opposite ends of the city. We really appreciated his ability to see beyond the four walls of a house to show us how it could be our home. Brian is very approachable , very patient and very professional. We enjoyed working with him and have no problem recommending him to others. Thanks Brian!"
Lynne and Don G, Ottawa
"Being first-time home buyers, my husband and I were initially intimidated by the process, but when we met Brian, we knew we had picked the right agent. Throughout the entire process, he was patient, knowledgeable, and very professional! Over four weeks, we saw a large number of rural properties and in the end, Brian was able to help us buy a house that we absolutely love. Brian did an amazing job negotiating a price that we could afford and I would recommend his services to anyone looking to buy!"
Casey & James H, Ashton
"I have known Brian personally and professionally for many years and did not hesitate to hire him when I made the decision to start the search for my new home. Brian kept me up to date on all new listings and always made himself available when I was interested in viewing a house. It didn't take long to find my new home and, once again, I didn't hesitate to hire Brian to sell my current home. Brian always had a good attitude and remained professional during this process. Brian successfully sold my home and made the process of buying and selling a lot less stressful and intimidating than it could have been. I would absolutely recommend Brian to anyone looking for a realtor."
Jenna N. and Scott A, Ottawa
"I had a great experience with Brian as my realtor. It took less than two months for him to sell my home and he kept me up to date on all the details every step of the way. But the best part about working with Brian is how personable he is. Not only did I make decent money selling my home, but I also had a lot of fun just shooting the breeze with him."
Dave L, Kanata
"We were VERY fortunate to meet Brian! After noticing his advertisement of a house that was for sale in our neighbourhood (Orleans, Ontario), we spontaneously decided to visit the house without representation from a real-estate agent, and prior to deciding it was time to sell our townhouse – Brian was the agent representing the seller. Although that specific deal did not go through, seeing the house made us excited about the prospect of moving! And since we were so impressed with Brian’s calm and down-to-earth personality and approach, we asked him to be our real estate agent and help us find our single family home. Brian coached us through the process of preparing our townhouse for sale, provided excellent advice on the market value of our townhouse and the best sale price, and ultimately helped us solicit multiple bids and a final sale that was above asking price! Following the sale of our townhouse, Brian worked tirelessly to help us find our new home knowing that we were on a tight timeline of 3.5 months. Over the course of a few weekends Brian took our family to countless house viewings, demonstrating great interest in finding the house that was the best fit for our family. Once identified, Brian guided us through the making-an-offer and inspection processes, and helped us purchase the house before any potential competition had the chance to submit a competing bid. Past moving day Brian has maintained casual contact with us. He is an amazing real-estate agent and our family really appreciated his help purchasing our forever home!"
