We recently had the pleasure of working with Manuela and we couldn't be happier with the service she provided. We started planning on February 15, and everything went fast. From start to finish, she was professional, knowledgeable, and went above and beyond to ensure that our real estate needs were met. We did not expect that we will have 16 showings in just 2 days and got an offer on the 3rd day, and sold firmly yesterday! Yay! One of the things that stood out to us the most about Manuela was her attention to detail. She is very organized. She took the time to listen to what our concerns were especially in this changing market. She was great at communicating with us throughout the process, keeping us informed every step of the way. She has a wealth of knowledge about the real estate market in Ottawa. She was able to answer all of our questions and provided valuable insights that helped us make informed decisions about selling our property. Overall, we highly recommend Manuela for anyone in need of a knowledgeable and professional real estate agent. She exceeded our expectations. She really did!

Thank you so much Manuela for all your hard work and dedication in selling our place. Your staging brought new energy/vitality/lovely colour palate into our older home. I believe we held the record for the highest number of house showings during a very slow market. When it came down to crunch time, you also rolled up your sleeves and spent many days completing the house transformation! Our friends were amazed! Your knowledge, patience, transparency and helpfulness (before, during and after the house sold) confirmed that you were the perfect agent for us!
I can’t insist how lucky I was to find Manuela for my home search. I’ve greatly enjoyed working with such a professional realtor and knowledgeable person in regards to real estate in the Ottawa area. Before Manuela, I worked with a realtor who obviously cared about just making a sale rather than my happiness or liking of the place and affordability. Manuela cared for me like she’s buying a home for herself and helped me find a lawyer. She's so kind and helpful; every time I needed help with something she answered all my questions provided guidance. Everywhere there’s a discussion about buying or selling a house I talk about Manuela and recommend her to my friends and acquaintances.

Manuela is an absolute pleasure to work with. As first time home buyers, we felt comfortable and were able to trust Manuela as she was both professional and honest. She took the time to get to know us and kept our best interests/preferences in mind. We look forward to working with her again in the future and would happily recommend her to other home buyers.

Always prompt responses with well-researched and honest answers from Manuela. Peace of mind that a true professional was looking out for our interests; but at the same time genuinely personally connected. Knowledgeable, reliable, and precisely who we needed in our corner.

If anyone is thinking of selling or buying real estate in the Ottawa area, Manuela da Silva is your person. She took great care of us in our move from Sudbury to Ottawa. She is very knowledgeable of the Ottawa areas and the market. Her professionalism is outstanding. She answered all our questions, responded timely and went out of her way to make sure we got what we were looking for. She made us feel so comfortable looking for a new home. She went over and beyond any expectations and we are so very grateful to have had her represent us.
"Manuella is extraordinary. Although buying a property for a first-time home buyer is an overwhelming process, Manuella made it very smooth. Her experience, professionalism, knowledge and dedication are the greatest strengths that she has to offer to her clients. She is very detailed oriented to help her customers to make the best decision, and anyone can be sure that she will go the extra mile to help her clients through the entire process (before, during and after the purchase). Manuella builds great and solid relationships with her clients as she understands the need for each party involved in the process. I will definitely refer Manuela to anyone who is wiling to purchase or sale a property. Thank you so much, again, for your help Manuella!"

We are young first time home buyers and Manuela was wonderful in helping us through every step of the way. She was very patient with the many homes we were interested in and paid attention to detail during showings, making our final decision much easier. She is also well-informed about the housing market and helped us find a home that is beautiful and worth the price. We are so happy with our new home and we know Manuela’s negotiating skills helped secure it. Like someone else said, Manuela really gets it, real estate is Manuela’s specialty, not just a job. We will continue to come back to Manuela whenever we move/buy and highly recommend her to anyone. Thank you Manuela for your amazing service, truly a 10/10 experience :)
As a young first time home buyer in the midst of a pandemic, I could not have wished for a better realtor. Manuela's professionalism, dedication, extensive knowledge and availability made this experience so much more enjoyable. She provided support in many ways, before, during, and after my purchase. Manuela was referred to me by a friend and I would refer her to anyone looking for great advice, support and guidance throughout their house hunting or selling experience. Manuela builds a great relationship with her clients and that's what makes her exceptional at her job!

"We were really lucky to have Manuela as our realtor. She is really patient, caring and a professional agent. She worked carefully on our offers and guided us through all required steps to buying a house. She prepared us with enough information about the market and helped us to find our dream house so quick. I highly recommend Manuela for buying or selling your properties. Her service and personal attention is extraordinary. She works hard on her relationship with us and we are always thankful for her great service."
"Manuela has been nothing but exceptional for me as a first-time homebuyer, working with me within my price range and goal-set to get my ideal first home. She has consistently gone out of her way to answer questions and provide information whenever requested, and given timely advice when needed. She is thoughtful and tireless in her kindness and support, and I would gladly work with her again if provided the opportunity!"
"My experience with Manuela as a realtor has been the absolute best. As a young first-time home buyer, Manuela was able to guide me in the purchase of my first home by explaining every last detail of every process and every document so I knew exactly what was going on and what to expect. I realized I did not know much haha! She was SO helpful and attentive to my needs, she was thoughtful and extremely knowledgeable! We were able to find my home on our very first house hunting trip, which was followed by her immense support in putting in an offer, signing all the documents and going through all the needed steps to purchase the house. Manuela made me feel like her number one priority at all times, I felt safe and confident with her on my team and knew I would be well taken care of and advised. She was so good at her work and was so caring towards me, that I recommended her to my parents who loved her just as much. She was able to sell their home AND find their new dream one shortly after my move. I recommend Manuela to all my friends who are looking into purchasing their first property, since she was so supportive and helpful in finding mine. I am already looking forward to contacting and working with her again in a couple years to buy a second property."
"I was extremely satisfied with Manuela as my real estate agent when I was looking to purchase a condo. She listened to my needs, worked with my time frame and gave me excellent advice. She was professional and I have since recommended her to a family member."

We worked with Manuela to buy a property for the previous 5 months. She was extremely helpful for the entire process, starting with providing the lists, info, price analysis & comparisons, to viewing the short-listed properties, all the way through negotiations, finalizing the sales agreement, contract signing and closure. She even provided some after sales tips. I couldn't recommend her enough, and we will be happy to work with her on future buy, sales or rent."
“Manuela was such a pleasure to deal with. She always gave it her all and paid very close attention to my wants and needs. Her extensive knowledge and background was also a plus and made every step so seamless. Thank you Manuela for all you've done for me.”
“I am very thankful for Manuela’s help. As this was my first experience, Manuela’s compassion and professionalism made the journey so much more enjoyable. I couldn't wish for a better place and a better realtor to purchase my first home.”

“Manuela is a well-informed, patient, fun and caring realtor. She helped me not only find a rental unit a couple years ago but also my current house! I never once felted pressured to take anything I didn't like, and she always provided me options that matched what I was looking for. As someone who came in with little knowledge on real estate, I can safely say you are in good hands with Manuela. 10/10 experience!"
“Our family was being relocated from Calgary to Ottawa and Manuela was able to make this experience less stressful. She was able to do that by providing expert advice and by being very engaging with all stakeholders. Manuela truly cares about her clients and builds relationships that last a lifetime. She is determined, proactive and charismatic. Thank you Manuela for your great service! I will recommend them at every opportunity!"
“Manuela Da Silva is a wonderful person and great to work with. Manuela was just awesome throughout the whole process of buying and selling our home. Manuela gets it. This is a career for her, not a job. She focuses on continuing education, learning current market trends, house staging, and everything else involved with real estate. She also has a background in real estate law. The service and personal attention we received from Manuela was exceptional. She is truly a high-caliber professional and her knowledge of the local market and negotiating skills were key in ensuring that we received the best offer for our home. Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Manuela Da Silva. I could not have asked for a better Realtor to facilitate the process of selling and buying our home.”
