A great communicator with an outstanding work ethic and commitment to exellence, she made my selling experience smooth, enjoyable and stress free. I highly recommend Angela for your real estate needs”.
– Greg H., Ottawa
“David and Angela are an unbeatable team. Extremely satisfied with their service.”
– Tina, Kanata
“As first time buyers in Ottawa we were very fortunate to get Angela and David’s real estate services. They were amazing in accommodating our schedule and making our buy as smooth as possible. Also they were incredible in coming up with quite an amazing amount of viewings in the short time they were given. We are very happy with the purchase of our first condominium in Ottawa and we will not hesitate to use their services again and recommend them to all our friends”.
– Mimi and Dorin, Ottawa
“We purchased our first home with Angela and David and are happy to have worked with them again to sell and purchase our family home. They made the process so easy for us and were always available to support us in making such a big decision. Thanks again for everything”
– Maria and Majdi, Ottawa
“We were extremely happy with the real estate services provided by David and Angela. They are both very positive individuals and super pleasant to work with. They conduct themselves professionally and the advice they provide is first rate and grounded in reality. We were first time sellers and they took additional time to ensure we were satisfied with the selling strategy and the list price we settled on. When we had questions they responded quickly and we always felt confident in the answers provided. Best of all, the result was very good. Within a few months the house was sold for what we felt was the best price the market could offer. We strongly recommend David and Angela as real estate agents and would definitely seek their services if ever we are in the market to buy or sell again.”
-Vern and Barb, Dunrobin
“Angela and David were wonderful to work with! They provided excellent service, both friendly and professional. Their dedication and expertise made the process of purchasing our first home pleasant and stress free. They really took the time to understand our wants and needs, and offered great guidance. Would highly recommend them to anyone!”
-Kristy and Brent, Kanata
“I was a first time home buyer looking to buy a home for my girlfriend and I. We are both quite young and had very little knowledge on the process of buying a house, what to look for, what’s normal, what’s problematic, etc. Angela was referred to us from a friend of ours and she was immensely helpful. She took the time to explain everything thoroughly to ensure we understood all the procedures and fine print involved with contracts, and knew exactly what we were signing. She was there for us every step of the way and we couldn’t have done it without her.”
“I purchased my house with David and Angela 6 years ago and was lucky enough to have their services for the selling of my property this month along with the process of finding a condo rental. The service and attention they gave me was exceptional and precise to my every need. The advice and guidance they provided me throughout my experience of a first time buyer/seller was amazing. I will be taking andy and all of my future real estate needs directly to them, I highly recommend their services. Thanks Again!”
“Given the slow condo market, I tried selling my condo privately to save money on commission. After the condo sat on the market for some time, I decided to seek the help of a professional. I enlisted Angela Augsbury’s help, and it was the best decision I ever made. I only wish I had sought her out sooner! Angela’s professionalism and expertise was evident from our first meeting. Her attentiveness to my needs and to my sale put my mind at ease. I was able to focus on the other things knowing that my sale was in very capable hands. Angela sold my condo quickly and negotiated a fair agreement despite a very difficult market. It is obvious that Angela is extremely competent and skilled at what she does. But beyond that, she is also a caring and thoughtful person. Not only did I make a profit on my sale, but I also made a friend. I highly recommend Angela to anyone who is looking for an agent (as well as to those who may think they don’t need one!)”.
“As first time home buyers we weren’t really sure what to expect. We knew there would be a lot of stress involved but after meeting with Angela that all went away. She really listened to our needs and requests and was able to show us a great variety of houses that were suitable to our budget and needs. Angela was friendly, honest, and professional and always available no matter what. We really felt like we had a tight bond and she was able to make this whole experience more enjoyable than we ever imagined. We can’t thank Angela enough for helping us find our home. We would highly recommend her to anyone selling or buying a house.”
Shaun and Alison, Orleans
“We had total trust working with David and Angela, and were not disappointed. We had bought another house and needed to sell our town home in a short amount of time. There were several other town homes like ours for sale in the area, and my husband and I were worried we were going to have to take a hit on price for a quick sale. We listened to David and Angela, and their experience, dedication, and sheer knowledge lead to us selling in a matter of days for a price we were very happy with. In addition to their professional abilities, they are just such a pleasure to work with. During what can very easily become a stressful experience, Angela’s warm support and David’s humour kept us at ease and laughing through the entire process. We would never dream of working with anyone else should we need to buy or sell again in the future. Thanks David and Angela for a great experience!
Laura Hillary and Kyler Buck, Ottawa
“My wife and I have been very pleased with the wonderful service that both Angela Augsbury and David Sugarman were able to provide for us. Even though we currently are in a slower time for the sale of condos, they were able to find a buyer for our condo. As well, they gave us excellent advice in the purchase of our new home.”
Greg Labonte, Ottawa

“As a first time home buyer, I couldn’t have asked for a better duo!! Angela and David were nothing more than fantastic!! They wanted to make sure I got the best deal and the right home for me! Very friendly and professional service! Their passion for real estate was executed in every meeting we had. They really had my best interest on their minds at all time! Thanks again guys – this won’t just be a one time thing, I’ll see you in a few years on my next purchase!!”
Fadi Daniel, Kanata
“Angela and David took the time to really understand the type of house we wanted and what we were looking for. They were always available to show us homes and were patient with us throughout our search. In the end, they helped us find the perfect house
Their expertise and professionalism when negotiating the sale of our house ensured that we received the best possible offer. They always had our best interest in mind when dealing with other agents. We would highly recommend them to anyone selling or buying a house.
Lisa and Cory, Orleans
“I became the executor of a family estate that owned several real estate properties in Ottawa. Seeing that I reside in Vancouver I thought it would be a difficult task to sell them. We have contacts here in Vancouver that highly recommended that I call David and Angela. I flew to Ottawa and met with them. After just one meeting I knew I had made the right choice and handed them the keys. They were both very knowledgeable about the Ottawa real estate market, probate laws and estate sales. They stayed in contact with me constantly, with weekly updates and progress. The properties were sold within one month of listings. I am so very happy with their professionalism and compassion for the situation. I highly recommend David and Angela to others in search of competent and trust worthy real estate agents.
Forever grateful to you both!”
Julia, Vancouver BC
“David and Angela were excellent to work with. They were incredibly knowledgeable about the housing market. They helped us get the house we wanted for the price we wanted. The level of service was more than we could have asked for – always available for showings and to answer our questions. Highly recommended team of professionals!”
Megan and Matt, Ottawa
“Angela & David are great real estate agents and went above and beyond the usual services for the sale of my house. I had to move to another city so they helped with tasks I couldn’t manage out of town, such as coordinating repairs and keeping an eye on things in general. They also gave helpful and balanced advice. Angela and David were a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend them to friends and family.”
Deena Padamadan, Ottawa
“David and Angela have truly been a blessing in our lives. It was pure chance that we were referred to them by another realtor we also did not know personally, and we are so thankful that things fell into place that way. When we speak to people about our experience buying our first home, we cannot stress how this experience was made so great by the realtors who were helping us every step of the way. Angela and David were friendly, caring, supportive, experienced and very respectful to our needs and situation – and not too mention extremely easy going, even with us changing our minds once or twice. We will always go back to David and Angela in the future, if and when we feel it is time to move on from our current home. For now we just look forward to enjoying our home thanks to these wonderful people, and staying in touch with them because of the great people they are and the personal impact they had in our life.”
Jon & Amy, Kanata
“Angela and David make an amazing team. We truly enjoyed working with them and highly recommend their services. As first time sellers, Angela and David spent a significant amount of time sharing their experience and expertise all by being attentive to our needs and desires. They are approachable, friendly and available. We could not have asked for more.
Thank you for all your help!”
Marie & Sylvain, Ottawa
“I had met David socially and when the time came to sell my mother’s house on the Ottawa River he stepped in to help. The house was a challenge for anyone to market, as it needed significant upgrading and those buyers who would be inclined to take on such a task are not prevalent. The family’s wishes were that that the property was to be passed on to someone who would enjoy the house and grounds as our mother had for decades. The waterfront property has a wonderful view of the Gatineau hills and the typical buyer would tear down the structure and put up a mega-mansion. David, with his vast list of contacts, knew of someone with the skills and drive to go ahead with restoration and over the summer months he negotiated the agreement.
We couldn’t be happier with the outcome. David and Angela guided us through the process with sensitivity and a dose of reality from time to time when needed. It is notable that of the twenty or so waterfront properties for sale along that stretch of the Ottawa River this summer, it was one of two that sold. A highly recommended team.”
Bill Hillary, Dunrobin
“This was not our first time buying a home, it was our fourth, so we have been through the process before. The service has always been professional and amiable. Yet Angela and David as a team provide more – I could draw on a thesaurus full of words to describe the excellent service. We had a fairly lengthy process buying a second property, and they did everything possible to make it seamless, less stressful.
I don’t think I can begin to tell you how impressed I was throughout the entire process with both Angela and David. They are very committed to providing exceptional service. Suffice to say, our experience was so positive that they are the only real estate team we will recommend to friends and colleagues in Ottawa. If we do buy/sell again, they will be the team we would choose to work with. My only regret is that we hadn’t had the opportunity to work with them for any of our previous home sales or purchases.
Arlene F., Ottawa
“Angela and David are an amazing team. Both of them took the time to understand my struggles in locating a house that I was happy with. It took longer than we anticipated but they were patient and completely understanding. They made the whole process easy and stress free. I am so happy that I met them and I would never use another real estate team! Thank you so much.”
L Belmore, Ottawa
“Thank you very much Angela and David. It was truly a pleasure dealing with you! You made this process very pleasant and quick. We hope to stay in our new home for a long time, but we would definitely give you guys a call if ever we need to move again. We would and will recommend you to everyone in need of a friendly and efficient team of real estate agents.
We wish you luck in all future business!”
Dr. Craig Kuziemsky, Ottawa
“This letter is to describe the process of selling our home, through the services of David Sugarman, of Coldwell Banker Rhodes & Company. We retained the services of David Sugarman, a real estate agent who came highly recommended as a selling agent.
Our house had some difficulties, and this was not an easy, straightforward sale, because of outstanding construction issues, an in-process Variance application, and even legal issues with the City of Ottawa. Throughout all of the steps required to sell our home, David Sugarman worked tirelessly and acted with utmost professionalism. David constantly conferred with us the sellers, as to what steps to take to ensure a sale despite this house’s quirks and idiosyncrasies, and how to get the best price for this house. As well as giving us his valuable professional input, David also listened to us and accepted our direction.
Throughout the selling process of our home, the co-owner and I would very often remark on the quality of David Sugarman’s services, how hard he worked – including his retention of other professionals and consultants to gather information that he conveyed to us, and to potential buyers in order to better inform their buying decisions. Throughout the selling process, we were constantly reminded of David’s honesty. We could not be happier with the service and hard work and professionalism exhibited by our real estate agent, David Sugarman. We are very pleased with the results of the selling process of our house. We would be more than happy to again procure the services of David Sugarman and the services of his office at any time in the future.
I will highly recommend David Sugarman to anyone looking for a hard-working, honest, positive, effective, approachable real estate agent.”
Dan Roy, Ottawa
“David’s services were recommended to us by a friend. We were selling our home and had interviewed a number of potential Realtors but until we met David and Angela, none had the qualities that we were looking for. David and Angela are personable yet professional. We especially appreciated their attention to detail and suggestions for making our home more appealing to potential buyers. Every time a potential buyer visited our home, Angela followed up with them and/or their agents to get feedback and passed the information on to us. She made sure we were fully informed of the progress throughout the time our home was for sale. I would recommend them to anyone looking to sell in Ottawa and wouldn’t hesitate to contact them again if we are ever buying or selling another home. Thanks Angela and David!”
PJ Vankoughnett-Olson and Randy Olson, Ottawa
“Now that I am well on my way to making the transition to the new home, I wanted to say this about my experience with the David and Angela team. David was referred to me by a trusted colleague, specifically because I was looking to purchase on the outskirts of the city. David’s professional, and comprehensive knowledge of real estate, the geographical landscape of this region, and his honesty, wonderful humour, and generosity with all of what he knows made the jump start to buying outside the city very easy for me. He was ready to help at every corner. He was easy to trust from the get go.
Angela’s knowledge, tireless efforts, patience with showings, open houses , the trips out to Arnprior with me, along with her amazing positive spirit, and all the phone calls, kept me from giving up in following through with this process. This team of two were so attentive to me as a client, and, clearly love what they do, they made the process fun, even with all the stress. I felt very well taken care of and a felt a deep appreciation and trust for their confidence as they walked me to the very last minute to close this deal. I know I could not do their job as well as they do. I would refer them to anyone in a heartbeat!!”
Christine Belleville, Ottawa
“We really want you to know that we appreciated all your patience and professional service in finally
purchasing our very much loved home. Many times we think back about the whole experience and
even through many of the frustration and uncertainty at times, David, you were all ways positive
and uplifting. It was also very reassuring to have Angela help us out from time to time. David, Angela, a very big thank you to you both again for your dedication during all that time.”
Kayvan and Bess Amjadi, Ottawa
“Last December we started looking for a property to purchase. Luckily a close friend introduced us to David. Subsequently David introduced us to Angela. The rest, as they say, is history.
During the last twelve months we have been extremely fortunate to have David and Angela work their professional magic – not only once but three times. After they facilitated our originally intended purchase unexpected events required us to further challenge David and Angela. We needed to sell an estate property and, concurrently, find another home to purchase. Suffice to say David and Angela found the perfect property to buy while they proceeded to sell the estate property. Their expertise, guidance and advice over the past year has been invaluable. David and Angela exceeded our highest expectations.”
Keith McDonald, Ottawa
“I was extremely pleased with David Sugarman and Angela Augsbury throughout the entire process of buying my first condo. Their commitment to their clients is evident, and their attention to detail is amazing. Working with them is both fun and productive. David paid close attention to my requirements and price range, and respected those requests throughout the process.
I highly recommend David and Angela as agents and would use them again in a heartbeat.”
Highly satisfied condo buyer
“Being first-time home buyers, and on a timeline, we were extremely stressed out about the process of home-buying. That is, until we met with David and Angela. They made the whole experience so painless, with their dedication, knowledge, and extreme attentiveness to all our needs and questions.There is nothing more we could have hoped for from our realtors; they surpassed all our expectations by a very wide margin. We recommend them whole-heartedly to any friends and acquaintances who have expressed any interest in buying or selling a house. We feel very fortunate to have been referred to David, as his straightforward and personable manner put us at ease right from the start. Also, Angela’s attentiveness, and attitude made us feel like we were their number one prioity at all times. All we can say is Thank you!”
Ivan Campos and Catherine Rousseau, Ottawa
“We were first time home buyers looking out on the country side of Embrun. As the whole process was very new to us, Angela and David took the time to walk us through every little step of the process. They were both very patient and extremely helpful, while Angela was sure to have all of our numerous questions answered in a very timely manner. Their combined knowledge and expertise helped us feel exceptionally confident in our decision making throughout the whole process. Although we believed we were very particular with our wants and needs for our first house, especially when it came to our lot size and location, within two weeks they had helped us find the perfect house. We would definitely recommend Angela and David to our friends and colleagues.”
Hayley Greene and Charlie Sabourin, Embrun
“We recently bought a home in Carp with the help of David Sugarman and Angela Augsbury. This team is fantastic. From the word go they worked incredibly hard to find us the home that we are currently in. We were moving to Ottawa from another province and had no idea of where to look or what to do. David and Angela helped us narrow down our search options and made the selection process so much easier. We made two trips to Ottawa and each time David spent the better part of a day showing us around. David is incredibly personable and very knowledgeable. We were helped and guided through the process of the actual offer and purchase of the home and they organized home inspections, appraisals, lawyers and so forth all as part of a fantastic service. We cannot say enough about how impressed we have been with this team. They have been prompt, friendly and kind in all the dealings we have had with them. We can highly recommend them.”
Robert and Kimberly Stecher, Carp
“We needed to sell our house and make arrangements to leave the country, and in the midst of all that turmoil, David and Angela swept in and helped make it all happen. Not only were they completely professional, thorough and effective, but acutely aware and sensitive to all the stress and emotions connected to the event. We would highly recommend them to anyone who needs to buy or sell a house, and is feeling overwhelmed by the enormity of the task.”
Judy and Edan, West Carleton
“David Sugarman made selling our property a pleasure. The whole process from start to finish only took a week. David is truly dedicated to his clients and all I can say about him is he’s WONDERFUL.”
Karen and Richard Roy, Ottawa
“I am a returning client of David Sugarman and once again, he has proven to be an outstanding Realtor. His dedication to his clients is unparalleled. He is kind, courteous, conscientious, a skilled negotiator, and most importantly, he espouses the highest ethical standards. David interacts with his clients with as much attention and care as he would with a family member—he will move mountains to resolve any issue that may arise. I have already recommended David to many friends and colleagues, and I will continue to do so in the future. I couldn’t imagine being in better hands when it comes to buying or selling Real Estate.”
Silvia Bonaccio, Ph.D., Ottawa
“I was very delighted to have David complete the sale of my home at 342 Freedom Private. His tone is totally professional and courteous. His service to customers is excellent! I will refer him to all my friends and will use his services again!”
Frank Dimech, Ottawa
“David Sugarman is a phenomenal real estate agent who is very professional! He paid attention to our needs, and also brought lots of laughter during our search! He resolved any issues that arose quickly and professionally. We would highly recommend David to anyone that is selling or buying a home!”
Stephanie Rodrigue and Joshua Kaulaity, Stittsville
“We are returning clients of David and once again he has proven that he excels in his profession and stands a head above other realtors. He was truly professional and ethical throughout the entire buying and selling experience and treated not only us as his clients with the utmost respect, but also the other parties involved in our dealings. We recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate agent with integrity and fantastic customer service.Thank you for all your help once again, David!”
David and Catherine Kozera, Embrun
“Meeting David and Angela (David’s Office Manager) happened through a series of fortunate events. We were looking for someone easy to get along with, fun yet smart and professional. All of this and more was found through David Sugarman and Angela Augsbury. The Coldwell Banker Rhodes are lucky to have them. Finding the perfect home felt so simple and they were so accommodating… It really is the little things that matter, like a jerry can or pie! Lots of love goes out to those special people who I now call friends.”
Lauren Reeve and David Horwood, Kanata
“I was seeking to buy a home in the west end of Ottawa and was introduced to David through friends. I liked David and felt his knowledge and insight into the market would give me an advantage in buying a home. David offered unbeatable rates and Buyer incentives as well. I am very happy with my home purchase. Thank you Dave!”
“David is a true professional in the real-estate market, he represented me very well on the purchase of a property in Dunrobin with out any waste of my time. The same goes for Angela (David’s Office Manager).”
Jim Davies, Dunrobin
“David was recommended to us for the difficult task of selling two rental properties in addition to our residence over the winter months from December to February.
As it turned out, while we expected a long and painful process with many showings and open houses, the two apartments were on the market for no longer than a week and our residence went in one day. David was very busy in the meantime but always appearing like working exclusively for us and displaying extensive knowledge in technical matters related to his real estate activity.
His dynamic yet pleasant personality, in addition to the helpful and amiable attitude of his co-worker, Angela, has made the whole experience easy and enjoyable.”
Giorgio and Nella Comino, Kanata
“Only one word comes to mind for describing the experience of having David Sugarman as my agent, Outstanding.
From the initial quest for a new home to closing the deal he provided in depth knowledge, guidance, experience and an unwavering commitment to ensure that I as a buyer got exactly what I was looking for at the best possible price. As for selling my property his outstanding knowledge of the current market and his huge repertoire of skills ensured that my property sold within a week of being marketed.
If I was to buy or sell tomorrow, I cannot think of anyone that I would choose other than David Sugarman to be my Realtor.”
Thomas France, Orleans
“We want to thank you so much for your help with the purchase. You were extremely helpful in getting us through the real estate, legal and banking lingo, most of which was foreign to us. Also you did amazingly well in recommending and arranging the property and septic inspections. In short your support, professional knowledge and rural property familiarity/know-how were invaluable assets to us as buyers.
We are extremely pleased with our new property.
Thanks again for your help!!!”
Susan Hempinstall and Charles Saunders, Ottawa
“David Sugarman was referred to us by some dear and trusted friends. As it turns out other friends were ready to recommend him as well. With friends from different ends of town willing to recommend him so enthusiastically to us to help us with our search, this collaboration bode well from the
schools and recreational opportunities for the kids while living in Ontario were also an issue to consider.
search and each negotiation.
Assistant Professor, Stagecraft.
Theatre, Fine Arts, SWGC
“Being a Real Estate Agent is not an easy job, but David does it with style and assurance. It requires being skilled in various areas, such as the ability to assess properties, see and request changes that need to be made in order to make a sale, knowledge of staging, being a good negotiator, being in constant contact, and the ability to close the deal with favourable results, to name but a few skills. All the while being a good communicator with the client. David accomplishes this and more. I liked working with David because he knows his “stuff”, is more than willing to explain the process (even recounting interesting stories to make a point), and above all made me feel comfortable with the whole process of both buying and selling. It also helps that he has a great sense of humour.
“We were completely blown away! David Sugarman was absolutely the best!We decided to go through him when my fiancee met him at Future Shop- his personality is so positive & upbeat and he drew us in.We did not consider Coldwell Banker until meeting him…out of a ten he is a twelve.”
“David made me feel comfortable, cared for and I always knew that he had my best interests at heart. I would more than happily recommend him to anyone buying or selling their home.”
