"Jurgen Fretschner started selling condos in my Ottawa projects in 2000 at the East Market. He ended up selling almost 10% of phase 1, our first building. Since then, he has become an integral part of our selling team in Ottawa. He has been very active in all of our projects including East Market, Mondrian, Central, Gotham, and the latest project, SoBa. Jurgen has also been a contributor in my real estate investment seminar workshops and offers a real estate investment mentorship program to his clients. He is a top realtor who has a solid understanding of the market conditions and a detailed knowledge of the City of Ottawa. His extensive knowledge ensures that his clients are in capable hands. He is a trusted sales tool and we will continue to involve him in our projects."
"Jurgen is a very knowledgeable, reliable and trustworthy Real Estate Broker. I met him back in 2000 when we launched our first Ottawa project (The East Market). He would bring his investor clients into our sales office on the weekends and sold our units preconstruction. He sold 10% of our first building and continued selling numerous units in the remaining two buildings of the project. Since then he has been a big part of selling pre-construction and inventory units in my Ottawa projects, East Market, Mondrian and Central 1, 2 and 3 (Hideaway). Jurgen's extensive knowledge and understanding of the condo market are very valuable to me as a developer."
Jurgen introduced me to the phase 1 Central project assisting with the purchase of a unit at pre-construction prices. Sold the unit 3 years later for a profit. Jurgen's advice on the process allowed me to invest with my eyes open to the risk and return trade-offs.
I have since then also used Jurgen and his expertise to purchase my personal residence.Bryce Cooper
Daniel and I started our life together last year on a wonderful note with the purchase of our « Gotham » Condo, a trendy development downtown close to both our jobs, all credit to Jurgen. It was exactly what we were looking for!
We appreciate his counsel and his patience.Yana and Daniel Couture
Dear Prospective Seller/ Buyer,
If you're thinking about listing your home or buying a new home and you're not sure which real estate agent you should retain in Ottawa, may I strongly suggest that you contact Jurgen Fretschner. While it may not appear necessary, having a first-rate agent is vital to your success! Jurgen was highly recommended to me by a TD Bank mortgage broker. From my initial meeting with Jurgen, I was convinced that he would prove beneficial in finding the right home for my family. Once I had provided him with a geographic area and price range, Jurgen promptly shared all MLS listings within my specifications.
During the first few months, Jurgen was always available and punctual when viewing potential homes for sale. With each home that we viewed, I was always incredibly impressed by his knowledge of homes. Despite several unsuccessful attempts at finding the dream home, Jurgen always reassured me that we would indeed find the perfect home. Jurgen kept in contact with me the entire time and asked me to consider widening my search area.
Within just a few short weeks, we found the perfect home for us. Jurgen's negotiation skills proved profitable to us during the negotiation process as we closed under the asking price in a seller's market.
But the service did not end with the closing of my home. Jurgen made sure to reach out to me to see whether my family was pleased with the purchase. To this day, Jurgen continues to stay in touch periodically and offers excellent insight into the real estate industry.
I have such gratitude for him helping my family realize our dream of owning a home in Ottawa. We realize what a major role he played in making our dream a reality.
Sincerely,The Genest Family
Jurgen helped us transition from our starter home in St. Claire Gardens to our dream home in Ryan Farm. His attention to detail and professionalism was very impressive. We appreciated all his advice and the results were amazing. We were able to negotiate a great price on our home and we sold our first home in a short time at the right price. Having been a former realtor myself, I resisted the urge to handle the process myself and trusted someone who had current knowledge of the market conditions and of the local real estate market. My wife and I were able to dedicate our time to our clients knowing that Jurgen would take care of things. We recommend Jurgen to all our clients and trust him for all our future real estate transactions.Nat Busa, Financial Security Advisor
I first used Jurgen Fretschner as my agent for my 2 bedroom condo purchase on George St. in 2006 when I moved to Canada form Germany. I have since then sold and purchased two more condos and have settled in a 1 bedroom condo on McLeod St. in 2012. Jurgen has handled all my real estate dealings and was amazing to work with. I was highly satisfied with his knowledge and professionalism throughout the process. He was always ready to answer my questions and I especially appreciated his guidance and help when it came to handling the documents and closings.Uwe Stickel
I have purchased numerous investment properties/condos using Jurgen as my agent over the last 15 years. His professionalism and solid understanding of the market conditions helped me in purchasing the right properties. His connection with Developers and having the inside on projects were extremely helpful and allowed me to get access to units before the main stream buyers. Jurgen is an honest and straightforward person and his knowledge of the real estate market is very valuable to me as an investor. I have referred him to family and friends and they feel the same way.Bruno Paravan, Mortgage Broker TD Canada Trust

We purchased a condominium as an investment property using Jurgen Fretschner as our agent. His friendly approach and professionalism put us at ease from the beginning. He was very easy to deal with and explained everything to use, from numbers to potential tenants and what the potential risks could be depending on what unit we choose. We are very happy with our investment and the guidance we received.Louis and Maria Paravan | Unit 901-360 McLeod St. (Central 2)
My wife and I have been dealing with Jurgen for over 15 years. We've completed several transactions both for our homes and some investment properties. We wanted an agent who would be honest with us, even when the truth wasn't good news, so we could make the best choices based on real information. That's why Jurgen is our guy. If you are looking for a "yes" person look somewhere else. If you want an experienced, accomplished Real Estate Professional who's not afraid to play devil's advocate, and help with consultation on some of the most important financial investments of your life then I highly recommend Jurgen Fretschner.Robert and Brandie Hill
My husband and I moved to Ottawa (Centretown) in August of 2017 and were renting for the first 10 months. Despite loving the area, we really had no plans on buying a home, and had limited knowledge of the real estate climate in Ottawa. We attended an open house in our building and, although hesitant, decided to consider purchasing. My husband and I have a fair amount of experience with real estate and with Real Estate brokers. Between the two of us, this was our 8th purchase. I must say, Jurgen was definitely the most pleasant, calming, and positive experience I've had. He is a pleasure to deal with, and we benefited greatly from his experience, knowledge, and skill with negotiations. Jurgen was open and honest, and we felt we could trust his expertise with the local condo market. He gave us wise guidance in determining appropriate purchase pricing, and prepared us for what we were going to need to do at each step of the transaction. Thanks to Jurgen, we absolutely love our new home and are thrilled with our decision to purchase it. I highly recommend Jurgen to anyone who is interested in selling or purchasing, and we would be delighted to work with him again in the future should the opportunity arise.Michael and Miriam Dickson
I became acquainted with Jurgen in 2006 when he helped me with a condo unit rental when I moved to Ottawa. He was instrumental in the purchase of my first property in 2007. His knowledge of the condominium market, his reliability and honesty led me to recommend him to friends and acquaintances, all of whom had purchased units from him. Jurgen is sincere in fostering a good relationship with his clients. I have continued to seek his expertise in my purchases. I will not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a condominium unit.Kate S.
Jurgen, I can't say enough of all the hard work, dedication and time you spent on our condo. You never left any questions unanswered and always responded promptly. I most definitely will suggest you to anyone we know who is selling or wanting to purchase a home. "You are an expert in your field!"Lou Lavolpicella
I first met Jurgen in 2004 while looking for a new home for myself in The East Market Project in the Byward Market. It was a pleasure working with Jurgen and finding a perfect corner condo unit that I would call home for the next few years. When it was time to sell, he was right there with me making that happen as painlessly as possible. Over the following years I went on to purchase two condos in the Mondrian Project on Laurier Ave. West and two more in Central Phase Two near Bank and Gladstone. Jurgen handled those purchases and sales as well. He was instrumental in referring me to an excellent mortgage broker who worked miracles and a lawyer who was very knowledgeable in condo law. Jurgen also handled the sale of a residential property in Nepean which my husband owned. All in all, we have done a lot of business together and I highly recommend Jurgen for any real estate needs. He has always been extremely helpful throughout the good times as well as the tougher times. This is a five star rating.Lita Edwards & Ron Whitehorne, Almonte, On
We purchased a condominium in late September 2018 through the friendly and professional services of Jurgen. His knowledge of the market, attention to detail and assistance in all aspects of the purchase, including offering suggestions on intended renovations, were extremely helpful. We highly recommend him!John and Sue Airey, urchased at The Riviera condominium complex 1480 Riverside Drive. Ottawa
Jurgen's experience and professionalism were invaluable in helping me buy my first condo. I had a lot concerns and questions and he was able to provide me with all the assistance I needed.

Jurgen has been my go-to agent who I rely on for my real estate investment for the past five years. He helps me navigate Ottawa's rental property market, particularly with regard to condo buildings. He has always been approachable and diligent in guiding me through the purchasing process. I appreciate his professional insight and unique perspective on real estate investment which helps me make informed decisions, especially at times when I needed help to resolve issues with builders. As a client, I also benefit from his extensive network of quality legal and financial services, as well as his access to initial purchase opportunities that may not be available otherwise.

My partner and I were looking for a condo downtown Ottawa and Jurgen helped us find the perfect spot for us. He made himself available to our schedule and visited multiple places with us until we found something we loved. His knowledge of real estate and of the market was a great help to us. Thank you Jurgen!Neeley & Philippe
I Would Highly Recommend Jurgen; He Completely Earned My Trust & Respect
Many thanks to Jurgen Fretschner for guiding me through the sale of my 1-bedroom unit located in The Gotham condo development (224 Lyon St) about 3 years ago. Not only did Jurgen put together a marketing plan that included professional photographs, he also assisted me in staging my unit! His responsiveness, attention to detail and thorough understanding of the condo market in Ottawa made for a pleasant experience! Every step of the way, Jurgen ensured I was informed and he answered all of my questions. His calmness, honesty and transparent approach is what sets him apart. I would highly recommend utilizing the services and expertise of Jurgen!Chris Lafrange
We have known Jurgen for several years. He assisted us in selling our first house and finding our next home which was a significant upgrade. The selling process was quick and easy and he helped us to take the emotion out of the deal which, if not done, can often lead to unintended results. When searching for our new home, Jurgen knew exactly what we wanted and what would be a good fit for us and our new young family. In fact, after seeing the first house we insisted that Jurgen take us to about 10 more homes, only to go back to the very first one he showed us and we ultimately made that our new home for the next 21 years (and counting). Jurgen displayed tremendous patience during this process and made us feel great about our new purchase.
After paying off our mortgage we retained Jurgen again to help us purchase some investment properties by using the equity in our home to support our investments. Again, Jurgen's professionalism and "client first" attitude has been second to none. Being new to the real estate investment market can be intimidating, but Jurgen made it all look and feel very easy. Not only was he helpful with the actual transaction, he did everything he could to help us to understand the process of securing and retaining tenants. And his connections with the various builders in the city are a distinct advantage.
We would not hesitate to use Jurgen again for any transaction involving real estate.Barry and Jose Wilson
The process of buying a home is both fun and stressful, and until the dotted line is signed, many things can happen. I was fortunate enough to have Jurgen as a knowledgeable and professional guide throughout the 3 weeks it took to finalize the purchase of my condo. Having just moved back to Ottawa after being abroad for several years, he went out of his way to make sure I was updated every step of the way, and provided me with solutions and contacts that made my process smooth and seamless.Carl Janzen
I have had the pleasure of dealing with Jurgen in real estate ventures for over ten years now. My first condo deal in the East Market marked the beginning of our experiences together. From there my trust in and respect for Jurgen's knowledge has lead to his selling my first home, finding my second home, guiding me through more condo purchases in Central 1 and 2 as well as Hideaway and my latest purchases in Gotham and Soba. Jurgen also sold my East Market, Central 1 and Hideaway condos. Jurgen has been there for me with knowledge and advice every step of the way. He has a great eye for investment opportunities and a wealth of knowledge in the ottawa real estate market. In my opinion, Jurgen's ability to balance his straight forward approach with his patience and perseverance makes him a real estate agent who values his client's time and truly makes their best interests his first priority.Mark Carey
My wife and I have used Jurgen Fretschner as our real estate agent in both, purchasing our personal residence, as well as purchasing investment condos. We appreciated his straightforward personality and honesty. Jurgen's knowledge of the real estate market helped us make informed decisions. Especially when choosing the right investment properties. He has a great professional network and we benefited from his relationship with developers, as we were able to pick our condos prior to regular buyers at the launch of the project. We highly recommend him for your real estate needs.Vince & Alexandria Sacca
