Finding the right realtor to sell our house was not a simple task. Only after lengthy research did we settle on Dan Moloughney. Dan’s professional, businesslike, yet imaginative approach to the task was exactly what we were looking for. We engaged him and were not disappointed. From the initial paperwork involved, to the preparation of the house, to the ultimate sale, all decisions were made in a collaborative way. Every evening during the seven-day showing period we received an update on that day’s activity and bookings for the following day. Should we ever have need for a realtor again, we would have no hesitation in signing on with Ottawa Urban Realty. We highly recommend Dan Moloughney.

Dan was indefatigable in helping me find a home during the pandemic. As a detail-oriented first time home buyer, I especially appreciated his extensive knowledge of real estate, his balanced explanations of pros and cons of different houses, and his patience in explaining multiple aspects of the home buying process.
We had Dan help us sell a place 3 years ago, and now buy one in the craziest seller’s market I’ve ever seen. I have highly recommended him to my colleagues for both buying and selling based on the critical value he added in decision making and timeliness. Dan will give logical inputs and great analytical support to the hard decisions that come with selling and buying a house and will give you great honest and data-driven feedback on your decisions. He also worked many hours over the Easter Weekend, even during his son’s 18th birthday, with immediate responses to any questions or queries we gave him no matter the time. Not only did we have to buy in a crazy seller’s market, but we also had to buy from a different province. Dan drove well out of the Ottawa area and gave us honest feedback with virtual showings, pointing out things most would skip. The trust we had in Dan allowed us to skillfully maneuver in the incredibly unfortunate situation and purchase a place at asking, while others were all paying hundreds of thousands of dollars over. They should have went with Dan at Ottawa Urban Realty!

This is the fourth house that Dan has helped us sell or buy. As always he is the perfect agent with knowledgeable, helpful, honest, and timely advice. He helps you through the whole process and presents all the options that you have in selling or buying. Very patient, with a gentle sense of humour and practical ideas. This time was a very sensitive family matter and he was a stable rock in a tornado of emotional storms. We were so pleased with our over-priced offer. Highly recommended. Sally
We did not have to work with Dan for very long, which is probably indicative of what a good agent he is in the 2020 real estate market. He was very professional, knowledgeable and was a joy to work with. He was available to us throughout the day for my incessant first time home buyer questions and acted as a great “teacher” to us throughout a process that we knew nothing about. We will definitely contact him again when it is time for an upgrade!
Thanks again, Sarah
Absolutely the best full service real estate agent. He are amazing! You won’t find a more dedicated, helpful, honest, personable, Bilingual, hard-working, experienced agent anywhere.”

“I have used Dan’s services to buy and sell a home three times. Each time was a great experience – he goes above and beyond expectations and I would recommend him to anyone.”
“Been working with Dan for over 10 years now. He is low pressure, patient and professional – helped me with at least 6 real estate transactions.”
“Very professional and speedy response. I would recommend everyone to him. Very honest experience, knowledgeable and overall excellent. Thank you so much for all your help!”
“Dan was a great help to me as I sold my family home. He put a great deal of thought into and invested his time at every step of the process along the way. I’d highly recommend Dan to anyone looking for sound real estate advice in the Ottawa area.”
“My wife and I were looking to sell our house. We contacted Dan. He was fantastic, not only did he walk us through each step of the process, he was always available to answer any of our questions. He knows what he’s talking about and it shows. He helped us with simple ideas to improve the value our home. We sold our home for more than we expected and Dan was with us the whole way. He took care of every detail and explained them clearly. Dan’s the man!”
“In the current housing market you really need an edge to get the home you want. Dan delivers. He`s savvy, professional, patient and a great negotiator. Best realtor Ive ever used.”
“I had no idea what a huge difference a good realtor makes! Dan’s experience, knowledge, professionalism and calm demeanor were extremely helpful during the sale of my current home, and purchase of a new one, especially in today’s highly competitive seller’s market. I greatly appreciated how generous Dan was with his time; he was quick to respond to questions, set up viewings, and prepare offers to purchase, which ultimately led to the successful purchase of a new home. I would highly recommend Dan. No fluff, just really good advice and support.”
I have bought 3 homes & sold 1 with Dan over the coarse to 20 years. I keep going back to him as he is professional & adds a personal touch, for example his own deep dive videos of my selling property. The buying is the easy part & the selling of a home can difficult, stressful & frustrating. Dan is extremely knowledgeable, professional & was very helpful in every regard, hence I am still married & looking forward to our new home. To sum it up, I am ecstatic with his team & would recommend him to all.
Best Regards, David Whitmore
In the video below Aaron explains why he recommends Dan for real estate services.
Aaron has used my services twice over the last 8 years to buy investment properties. He had used another realtor prior to that, but in the end wasn’t happy with the service.
Luckily, Aaron’s neighbour recommended me. I had helped his neighbour buy several properties over the years.
I really enjoyed working with Aaron and look forward to working with him again.
Aaron, thank you for the video testimonial!!!
Dan…knows the market particularly well in Centretown, Glebe, Ottawa East and Ottawa South. He is very knowledgeable, pays attention to detail, offered good advice/ strategies and is easy to get along with. I was quite pleased with all aspects of the listing and sale of my place.
Moving with the military is one of the worst administrative nightmares imaginable. You can not afford a realtor that is anything less than perfect. Dan stuck out to me in the BGRS database due to his education as a computer engineer, his experience as a realtor and that he decided to start his own business. Although I had high expectations, Dan still managed to blow them away. He paid for several services that increased the value of my property from his own pocket and was available every hour no matter the day. Based on previous experiences, I felt that realtors did barely anything and you had to do all the work – turns out I was just selecting bad ones!
I had the pleasure of working with Jean Marc on the purchase of my first home. As a first time buyer, the process seemed daunting but with Jean Marc’s help, each step was so easy. From the first call to discuss what I was looking for, to setting up visits and driving me around the city, discussing my options, walking me through all the paperwork, recommending a mortgage broker, negotiating the perfect deal…Jean Marc was there! Always professional, knowledgeable, personable, keeping an optimistic but realistic outlook on the process; I could not have asked for a better agent. I would recommend Jean Marc to anyone and will definitely look to him for help when I sell my current home and buy the next one.
Jean Marc was instrumental in helping us navigate the real estate market both as first-time home buyers and, later, as real estate investors. His keen eye for recognizing the hidden potential in properties has been honed over years of buying, renovating and selling many of his own properties. With his expertise and guidance, Jean Marc has helped us to select and purchase 3 properties, each of which were converted into successful income-producing properties. His excellent advice and recommendations were always appreciated; not just during the purchase process, but during the renovation process as well. Thank you, Jean Marc!
Rodney & Kristina
I had the challenge of finding a good family home with the potential for a rental unit, on a rather limited budget. Jean Marc came through with flying colours! Not only is he very knowledgeable about the Ottawa Real Estate market he also has extensive experience in developing properties for rental and resale. He has a real knack for identifying properties with developmental potential and then quickly sorting the good from the bad. This saved me much time, money and headache!
On the money side, Jean Marc knows value when he sees it and is very resourceful and strategic in his negotiations. He got me a great deal on a great property.
Respectful, professional, diligent and patient. Jean Marc made the experience of searching, evaluating and ultimately purchasing a very enjoyable one and I am happy to recommend him to my best friends and family.
Dan made the stressful process of selling my condo and buying a new home understandable and enjoyable. He responded to my many questions in a timely and complete manner, helped me weigh pros and cons of different options, set up viewings with speed, and reminded me of my objectives when I needed it. I would recommend Dan to anyone looking to sell or purchase property in Ottawa’s downtown.

Dan Moloughney at Ottawa Urban Realty is terrific at what he does. If you have the pleasure of working with Dan, you can rest assured you are in good hands. Dan worked with my wife and I to find our first home and it is perfect for us, we couldn’t be happier. The things that impressed me most about Dan are that he is extremely reliable. He is very smart and he is honest. He genuinely cared about our wants and needs. This being our first home purchase, we had lots of questions and it took time for us to figure out exactly what we wanted in a home. Dan took us through countless houses and always gave us his honest feedback about each of the places we visited. Dan’s many years of experience in real estate have made him an expert.
Dan answered all of our questions quickly, directly and honestly. He was easy to work with and took initiative to address our concerns. In particular, as a selling agent, the staging of our condo was exceptional and as a buying agent he would point out issues or opportunities that we wouldn’t have thought of. We would certainly recommend him
I had the pleasure of working with Dan Moloughney for both the purchase and sale of my homes.Between March and May I was able to find my dream home and sell my residence (two weeks after listed)
I highly recommend Dan Moloughney for his integrity as well as prompt, efficient client centred realty services.
Dan was a great realtor and made the stressful process of buying a house as smooth as possible. He quickly figured out what I was looking for and had a lot of knowledge of the downtown areas I was interested in. Dan has a straightforward approach and was great at walking me through various scenarios and helping me figure out what was the right house for me. Being new to Ottawa I relied heavily on Dan’s knowledge of the market and Ottawa area and have no regrets.
Jane A., Westboro
Dan Moloughney got us full price and our chosen closing date in less than 4 days!
We chose Dan Moloughney as our agent after interviewing another because we knew he would give us the personal attention and energy that only the owner of a smaller realty can provide. Dan knows the market and the neighbourhood well; proof of this is that the price he suggested provoked immediate interest and our first offer within hours!
His marketing strategies (arranging a pre-listing home inspection; hiring a professional real estate photographer; writing an appealing listing; producing high-quality flyers and photo sheets) were not even offered by another realty. We’ve a very busy household, yet Dan made selling our house easy and …. even enjoyable !
Sarah R., the Glebe
Dan is the great realtor not merely for his knowledge, patience, business acumen and common sense, although he certainly does possess all those attributes. What makes Dan a great realtor is his genuine and sincere nature – with Dan, you truly know that he is working to help you realize your real estate goals. Because he is such a genuine person, he is a realtor who is straightforward, professional, kind and always trustworthy. It is without reservation that I would recommend Dan and his team at Ottawa Urban Realty Inc. Thank you Dan!
I keep recommendations simple: Great advice, service and results. Recommended.
Our thanks for all your efforts resulting in the timely completion of the sale of our Arlington property. Your recommendations on price, your straightforward plan, and your dedicated efforts and continued monitoring clearly led to a most satisfactory result. At all times we were made fully aware of all that was happening and had complete confidence that everything was proceeding with our best interests as the priority.
After living in my house for over 60 years, the prospect of having to sell it was overwhelming. However, Dan eased my concerns. He ensured the process ran smoothly and quickly. I was totally satisfied with the results and his services.
From the beginning, we were thoroughly impressed with Dan’s knowledge of real estate in Ottawa. He took time to walk us through current market conditions, explained what we could expect, and elaborated on different scenarios. He answered all of our questions thoroughly, and was always well-prepared. He followed up with answers to our questions without fail, and provided very good advice.
As first time home buyers, we relied on Dan’s knowledge extensively and we felt we were well-served throughout the process. Dan was a pleasure to work with – always on time, and a strong communicator.
Jessica & Ross
Thanks to you and Dan for all your work. We had our ups and downs during the whole process but we are very excited with our new home and we can’t say enough about your professionalism and friendly demeanor. Next stop…. IKEA!
Dave and Nikki
As first time home buyers, we credit Dan Moloughney for a smooth, stress-free home-buying experience. He was always available to answer our many questions and took care in showing us properties that met our specific requirements. We felt expertly guided through all the specifics and processes associated with buying a home. Dan is professional, helpful, personable and knows the market inside and out. We’ll be recommending him to our friends and families.
Jana and Lukasz
Dan provided us with excellent service and representation from start to finish. He listened to what we were looking for in a home, provided sound advice when we asked for his opinion, and always kept our best interests in mind. He always followed up with us quickly and was very respectful of our time. He kept us informed of every detail pertaining to listings, and made sure to walk us through all the details of the purchase of our new home.
Dan, you’ve been a beacon of common sense in the crazy world of Real Estate.
Thank you both for your emails earlier this week, I am guessing that you know by now that everything went smoothly since you haven’t heard back from me yet! It was a great day, everything fell perfectly into place and I moved in under two hours, then went for dinner with the friends who helped me move.
Thank you so much for everything Lori, you made this experience wonderful. Your professionalism, kindness and consideration towards your clients is unparalleled. I am very grateful for all of your advice and answers to my questions throughout this process which lasted for several months, you made it really easy and enjoyable for me.
Rest assured that everyone who knows me will know who to call if they need a real estate agent!
I sincerely appreciate having had the opportunity to work with you – we will definitely work together again in the future.
All the best,
Super happy new condo owner D.N.
I wanted to thank you for all your help and patience and expertise you gave us when we were looking for our home. As first time home buyers we really did not know what we were doing or what to look for, we just knew what we wanted to have in a house, you and David helped us out tremendously and pointed out all negative and positive things in homes we went to see. We finally found the house we loved and are nicely settling in…
Mary & Jasem Khazal
I would like to Thank Dan Moloughney and Team for the wonderful service they provided to me. Gloria, Lori and David are an asset on Dan’s Team and to the company.Their professionalism, knowledge, caring approach and dedication is evident in all their actions from staging the home to selling it. I felt very comfortable and confident in their ability to sell my home.My house sold is 3 weeks which was a blessing as I was moving to Toronto for a new job. They were supportive, attentive and always available to answer questions. I would recommend Dan’s Team to my friends and family should they require such a service. I specially felt the communication between the Team members to be excellent when stepping in for a team member. Their understanding and knowledge about the property was excellent .
Dan recently represented me in both the purchase of my new home and the subsequent sale of my previous home. I was in a multiple offer situation for the purchase of my new home. With Dan’s advice and professional representation I feel very comfortable with the offer that we put forth and am confident that I did not pay any more than was necessary. With regard to the sale of my previous home, I was looking for a quick sale at fair market price. Having made the simple changes that Dan suggested to stage my home, I had an offer the day my house was listed. On Dan’s advice, I countered the offer twice and within 24 hours the purchaser accepted our offer. I would not hesitate to use Dan again, nor to recommend him to friends. He was professional, knowledgeable, helpful, gave me solid advice and responded quickly to all of my many questions.
We were always toying with the thought of buying a home, but had always dragged our feet in starting the process. Since we were first-time home buyers, we were very excited to find a home, but weren’t really sure what to look out for. When we were introduced to Gloria, she quickly explained the home-buying process, deduced our needs, and listed off an assortment of homes that we could visit the very next day. With the help of her husband Dave, who was equally informative, we managed to see 6 homes that weekend, and 6 more with Gloria the next. In two weeks time, we found the perfect home. We felt informed and extremely confident about our decision. With Gloria’s help, we made an offer and closed the deal. We didn’t think buying a home was so easy; Gloria just made it seem that way.
Ben and Melanie
I do have a little something for you too since you made this whole process a great adventure for me. I thank you for all your time, energy and patience. You are certainly an expert at what you do and you demonstrated that expertise every step of the way. I am now really starting to get excited about the move. This is a new page in my life and thanks for being part of it. I’ll pop in your office this week sometimes, or next week at the latest. Thanks again,
The prospect of purchasing my first home was a very daunting one; however, Gloria Bae’s low-pressure approach made my search for a house a very positive experience. She was very informative and attentive, and really seemed to care about finding the right house to suit my needs. I would enthusiastically recommend her to anyone looking for a real estate agent.
It was really a pleasure working with you guys; Gloria, David and Dan, you are wonderful people, My wife and I are very honored to meet and work with you, we felt safe, secure and in good hands, every thing went fantastic and up to our expectations, our appreciation and satisfaction can not be wrote, we wish you all the best in your life and career sincerely
Thank you very much for the lovely gifts. I decided to take a study break and we are currently having a glass of the nice wine you gave us! It was a pleasure to work with you and I am sure we will again 🙂 Talk to you soon,
Marika (and Mark)
It was really a pleasure working with you guys as well. I appreciate your patience with me and all of the excellent assistance you, Gloria and Dan provided me throughout the whole process. I will most be back for my next one … and recommending you to all of my friends and colleagues of course. Thanks my friend,
Kris van der Starren
Professional, attentive and client-centered … gives objective advice but lets the client decide …a refreshing contrast to the stereotypical, pushy real estate agent
Dan Moloughney made my first-time home purchase as straighforward as possible. He was always available and his honest opinons were beneficial. His dedication continues as he offers his expertise even after the sold sign has come down.
Carmen Rupp, Centretown
We found Dan to be very knowledgeable and easy to work with. Dan has a good understanding of how older homes are constructed and he knows what to look for in them. This knowledge helped us to find the home that we were after. We really believe that we would not have found our home without him and if we ever need to move for some reason in the future, we will be working with Dan again.
John Whatman, Glebe
I’ve bought two places with Dan, and looked at many, many more. Dan is very competent, knowledgeable and absolutely honest about a place. He will never put his interest in making a sale anywhere near the interests of the client. He will not push you to buy, but will offer you his advice. He is all about finding the right fit. The main reason I like working with Dan is that I completely trust him.
Stephen Wheeler, Centretown
Buying property is something most people don’t do on a daily basis. Their are many things to consider, advice to be drawn and recommendations to be invited, if you are to be confident that the property being purchased is a wise and valued investment. The use of a qualified realtor is an essential. I have worked with Dan, have been guided by his sound advice and have heeded his recommendations, particularly those in the final stages of the acquisition leading to closure. The result was my complete satisfaction with the whole process. I found Dan most professional in all aspects.
Anthony Jarvis, Centretown Landlord
Dan was very supportive, thoughtful, and conscientious. He frequently would compare the current house viewing to others that we had seen, highlighting key points that I might not have considered. As a newcomer to Ottawa, he also assisted me in familiarizing myself with neighbourhoods, profiling selling features or businesses that were in the area.
