We first met Guy 30 years ago through a mutual friend. We got to know him over the years and he helped us sell our first home back in 1999, that home sold in 7 days here in Blackburn Hamlet. Guy also helped us buy this home in 1999 and now it is time to downsize so we called Guy and Romana. We decided that the kids were getting a little bit older and had moved out so we wanted a bit of a lifestyle change. Guy and Romana had stayed in touch over the years and we invited them in and they gave us some really good advice so we decided to list our home with them. We were concerned about the market in Ottawa at this time because the houses in our neighborhood last year were on the market for a very long time. We were also concerned about the price that we thought we would be getting for this house. Guy and Romana gave us a great assessment, excellent comparable and some excellent advice. We took all their advice from staging our home to potted plants being in the right spot, to paint colors. The house went on the market and sold in a just a few days over 100 percent of list price, we were just so impressed that we got more than what we had anticipated. We were really pleased and couldn’t be happier with everything they did for us. We would certainly recommend Guy and Romana to anyone who want to sell their home.

We moved to Ottawa in 2009 and Guy and his team were recommended by a coworker of mine. When it came time to sell our home now that we were ready for retirement, we knew we could count on Guy and Romana and their valuable advice to help us sell our home in a reasonable amount of time. Guy and Romana and their team helped us to price our house and gave us valuable tips to get top dollar for our house, in fact their beautiful photographs and fabulous feature sheet’s and everything else they brought to the table. We were able to sell our house in 22 days for over 101% of the asking price! We are very happy with the results. We highly recommend Guy and Romana and their team whether you are selling or buying your home. They have a lot of experience and they go the extra mile for you in helping you sell your home.

I bought a house from Guy Walker 28 years ago and decided to downsize now that I was retiring. Based on my trusted relationship with Guy over the years, I called him and his team and they came over to list my home. The problem was I needed to sell my home quickly because I had another property in mind and I didn’t want to lose it. The challenge was many of the homes that were on the market for sale in my neighborhood were up for months and not selling. So with their years of experience Guy and Romana and their team helped me price my home properly and gave me valuable tips on getting my home ready for the market in a very short time. They priced it right and my home sold for 100% of the asking price in only 22 days. Nobody could ask for better service and excellent work.
Thank you Walker Kosch Team!
A few years ago my husband and I undertook the task of selling our first condo without a real estate agent. Five months later with the condo still on the market, so we decided to called Guy Walker who took over and had it sold within 2 weeks. With this experience behind us we did not hesitate to call upon Guy and his team when it was time to downsize from our present home to a condominium apartment. Guy and Romana his team quickly and efficiently took over the process of helping us find a suitable condo and listing our property. With our new purchase closing in only 60 days we had to sell our home quickly in order not to be stuck with 2 properties. Guy and Romana and their team gave us valuable tips on how to get our home ready for the market and with their advice our home was sold in 18 days for top dollar. If you’re planning on buying or selling I would strongly recommend the Walker Kosch Team to get the job done!
Thank you Walker Kosch Team!

I would highly recommend you contact Guy to assist you with your real estate endeavours. We have known and worked exclusively with Guy since arriving in Ottawa in 2001 and he is 2nd to none. Guy has ALWAYS looked out for our best interests and regarding our current house...his infinite wisdom in the world re the real estate potentially saved us approximately $50 000.00...literally. Furthermore, Guy just assisted a colleague in locating the perfect house for them.
As first time home buyers, the whole process can be very unnerving. Guy ensured that we were well educated in the home buying process and made the entire process enjoyable. I have already recommended Guy to many of my friends and family.

We came from Germany with only one week to find a house, in the middle of winter, and with a baby. However, Guy, displaying amazing organizational skills, endless patience, and good humour, made our house-searching experience successful and even fun. At the end of the week we had the house we really wanted.

We were lucky enough to have Guy assisting us to buy an investment property. Guy was recommended to us by good friends and we were not disappointed! He went above and beyond which was no easy step as we were abroad during the whole property purchase process. Guy viewed properties on our behalf, took photos, and provided invaluable advice and guidance. He was always available – we really cannot say enough about the level of service Guy provided and would not hesitate to recommend him.
PS: Also, I have given my colleague and her spouse your contact details as they will be returning to Ottawa this summer and are looking to purchase a property.

During the high market, we took several months and toured many houses before finally deciding on the perfect one. Guy was diligent, honest, understanding and never once did we feel pressured into our decisions. He knew how to guide us through the process and made us feel very comfortable. We recommended him to family and they also found the perfect home and were extremely pleased with his determination and professionalism. We are happy that Guy is not only our real estate agent but now a great friend as well.

…we were very impressed with Guy's professionalism, attention to detail and his objectivity. Guy worked with us by showing us different areas of the city and pointing out the pros and cons of each area and individual property. Given that neither one of us was familiar with the Ottawa area, it was important to have someone who could point things out that we would be unaware of.
We eventually purchased a condo downtown and have been happy with our choice. Since our purchase, Guy has been in contact through regular newsletters. So when it came time to start thinking about a slightly larger place, we of course called Guy again. Guy once again has demonstrated professionalism, is quick to respond and takes the time to ensure he understands our needs. We are confident that with Guy's help, we will find what we are looking for in our next place to call home.

“We worked with Romana in our search for a new home. Initially uncertain as to what we wanted, our strategy was to cast a net as wide as possible before narrowing our search down. Romana patiently organized visits to dozens of condos, townhouses and detached houses in different neighborhoods and helped us identify our needs. She was also good at identifying possible renovations to bring places to our taste. When we did buy a house, she contacted contractors for us at our request and coordinated a visit to the house before we took possession. We found her competent, professional, client-oriented, courteous, pleasant and available for us, even when we made an offer on Christmas Eve. She had been referred to us by friends. In turn, we will recommend her to friends on the market for a property. "

Derrick, Kyle, and I would like to thank you again for all your hard work in finding us a home in Ottawa. You were able to find a nice house that suited our situation exactly and in the price range we were looking for.
We realize living in Toronto and communicating only by e-mails and phone calls was a bit challenging. I was actually surprised we visited so many homes in one day to get a feel for the local market conditions and that in the end we were able to make an offer the next day on two homes should the first offer not go through.
You went above and beyond our expectations with recommendations for local lawyers, home inspectors, obtaining additional property details, by picking up our son and his new roommates from the University to visit the house during the home inspection and dropping them back to the University, and again making arrangements for final viewing before the house closed.
This support was much appreciated and demonstrated your commitment in making the buying process as easy as possible for us. We would recommend you without hesitation to anyone in a similar situation.
Thank you for your professionalism and making it all look easy.
Thank you for your professionalism and making it all look easy.

The following is to express our deepest gratitude and kindest regards to Miss Romana Kosch of Coldwell Banker first Ottawa Realty.
With her hard work, determination and honesty, she advertised, promoted and sold our property in less time than our estimated targeted date. Romana has certainly reconciled us with the Profession of Real Estate Representative. She is a rare true professional and her aptitude in developing good relationship with prospects and clients is certainly an asset that we have not seen in others. Her knowledge of the market as well as her understanding of people's needs make of her a very professional and reliable resource to sell or buy a property. We will always be grateful to her for her excellent and courteous service. Romana was in all times in control and always answered to our questions. We very strongly recommend Romana Kosch to anyone looking to sell or buy a house.
From the moment I met Romana at an open house in 2006 I knew that I wanted her to be my real-estate agent. She was professional and friendly, but most importantly, very knowledgeable about house construction, as well as many things I didn’t know anything about – windows, furnaces, pipes, wiring, roofs, insulation, foundations and a ton of other important aspects about homes. When I started looking at homes with Romana (she has now been my agent for two purchases), I was most impressed by her honest assessment of the houses we saw. She knew what I was looking for and reminded me of what was really important when I got off-track by seeing a beautiful bathroom or kitchen renovation. She would always remind me that I could change anything about a house except for the lot or location. There were many houses that she knew were not the right one for me and she was quick to point out flaws or major maintenance costs that would come with a particular house. This made it very easy to know for sure when we had found the perfect house for me. Romana was also very helpful in assisting with all the logistical aspects of buying a new home, including explaining the many processes involved including offers, home inspections, closing costs, financial information and the role of lawyers. She took care of sending information to my mortgage broker, insurance agent and lawyer; she researched any questions I had about the property with the selling agent and home owners. It was a huge relief to know everything was in Romana’s capable hands. I would highly recommend Romana to anyone without hesitation as an outstanding agent.
Just a quick note to thank Guy & Romana for the wonderful service Shelley & I received. I am still amazed on how well the process went and how fast we were able to sell! I will continue to promote your services to my colleagues.
Romana was referred to me by a friend who wanted to make sure that I had an excellent realtor working for me to find a new home. Since it has been 12 years since I bought my last house, I dreaded having to go through the house hunting process all over again. However, within less that 1 week, Romana managed to get me a beautiful new home, even with a competing offer on it. As a former realtor myself, I know what to look for in a good realtor and Romana will not disappoint you! I can highly recommend her and her team to find you a great new place to live!
