Buying a home can be fun and exciting, but it can also be stressful, regardless of how prepared you are. It’s an emotional journey with the potential for unexpected twists and turns. Having a solid plan can help reduce those potential stressors and set the right expectations for your home buying experience.
While a real estate purchase is never easy, we can certainly make the process more streamlined. We will address any questions or concerns upfront to be on the same page every step of the way. It starts with a detailed consultation and ends with keys to your new home.
We have some of the best tools to ensure that you never miss out on your next home – from our Collaboration Centre to real-time market data to quick and convenient electronic signatures. We have experience and strategies that have been proven to help our clients achieve their goals.
Sometimes it’s not all about a stunning kitchen or updated ensuite. You want to know the facts, the good and the bad. You want to know of any issues and/or hindrances that may affect the home. When you work with us, you can guarantee honesty and integrity. We want you to make informed decisions, and we will provide you with all the information needed to do so, including potential “deal-breakers.” We want you to know exactly what you are buying. It’s our reputation, and we stand behind that.
Just like a well-oiled machine, our team dynamic works together to achieve your real estate goals. Our sales team makes sure you are always in good hands and that you never miss an opportunity at your next home. Our administrative support staff ensures you and stakeholders have all the documents and information promptly. They can assist with transition details such as utility service changeovers, mail forwarding/ID address changes and moving details. In addition, we have amazing relationships with some of the best mortgage representatives, home inspectors, lawyers, insurance agents, contractors and other industry professionals needed.
We are always looking out for your best interests, including your home buying experience with us. Our process is based on trust; there are no obligations or commitments. We don’t want you to feel like you have to use us; we want you to feel good about it. There are no contracts until we find your home.
Jordan is one of best realtors I have dealt with. He is very professional, smart, honest, helpful, and not pushy at all like some realtors tend to be. When I wanted to buy a house, I contacted Jordan and I told him the requirements of the house I wanted to buy and he was able to find the ideal house I wanted at a very good deal. I would definitely recommend him to any friend or family member. Thank you Jordan.
Thank you Jordan for helping us with our first home purchase!
We whole-heartedly recommend Jordan if you are looking for a real-estate agent. We felt that he took the time to get to know us as a family so he could help us find the perfect house; even when we did not know what type of house we wanted. We started looking at one type of house, and ended up wanting something completely different – I suppose that’s what happens when it’s your first house. Jordan was very patient with us even when we changed our budget and wish lists. He showed us many listings, adding in valuable information about the house, features, and neighborhood. We found his insights very useful in making our decisions. There was never any pressure to move too quickly; if anything, he would stop us from time to time to ask whether we were sure (in case we let our emotions get the best of us). He was very helpful in navigating the closing process. We would otherwise not have known to have the septic tank pumped, or the well inspected and tested. He is personable, and the only problem with having closed on the house is that our 4-year-old keeps asking when he will see Jordan again. Even now, after we had settled into the house, he still is helping us with questions about our new home.
We have referred our parents (who are looking for a house in this area) to him, as we are sure he will take great care of them.
Jordan’s expertise and guidance through the entire process of selling my home was phenomenal. Despite the current situation, social distancing guidelines and unpredictable market, Jordan was able to accommodate and adapt very quickly, all while getting top dollar for my home in less than a week!
I would highly recommend Jordan to anyone looking to buy or sell a home and I look forward to working with him again in the near future!
We loved working with Jordan. He was so helpful, accommodating and knowledgeable. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate agent here in Kingston. We plan on using him again when we go to sell.
Jordan helped us sell our current home and find our dream home. He was fast, efficient and on the ball. Couldn’t ask for a more honest and reliable real estate agent!
Jordan was an absolute pleasure to work with. He is incredibly knowledgeable and always made himself available. What I valued the most about Jordan was that he tried to find the perfect home for us, not just any home to sell. He would highlight all of the good and bad features to make sure that we were satisfied. After 2 weeks of shopping, he knew what we wanted more than we did.
I would highly recommend Jordan to anyone and I will undoubtedly use him again in the future, to buy and/or sell.
He is very smart , patient and good looking too!!!
He sold my condo so fast, I was so worried before.
Very professional and reliable! Jordan was available 24/7 to answer any questions up to and after closing. Highly recommend!
Jordan is smart, knowledgeable and extremely patient. He has helped my husband and I buy and sell three times now. Jordan always takes the time to understand what we are looking for and never once pushed any ideas on us. He was always supportive and respected our decisions which makes him very easy to work with. You can’t go wrong with Jordan, we highly recommend him!
Jordan was great to work with and he made the home buying process easy and stress free. As first time home-buyers he helped to educate us on what to expect, he kept us up to date on the latest market trends, and he equipped us with all the knowledge and tools we needed to find our dream home. We would highly recommend Jordan to anyone who is looking for their next property. Thanks Jordan!
True professional, very knowledgeable. Goes above and beyond. Truly knows how to guide you.
As a first time home buyer Jordan provided me with all the information I needed to know. Jordan worked diligently to find the house I wanted. While I was out of town, I trusted Jordan to find a house that met my needs. Overall Jordan was very accommodating and helpful throughout the home buying experience.
I worked with Phil threw the pandemic to find my first home. He was fantastic to work with.
He went above and beyond to help me and my family and his communication is excellent
10/10 would work with Phil again.
Jordan made the experience of selling our home feel like a well executed plan, taking away the stress. His professionalism, patience and integrity went a long way in taking us through the process. Can’t say enough about Jordan!
Solid good work and dedication to get the job done. Thank you again, Jordan.
What a great agent. We were referred to Jordan by a family member that highly recommended him. He took care of everything. Very knowledgeable and goes the extra mile for his clients. Thanks you Jordan for finding us our dream home.
During our first meeting with Jordan, we were very impressed with his presentation as to the services he would provide in helping me sell my home. We felt very confident in choosing him as our sales rep. His charisma and friendly personality made a stressful time in my life so much more tolerable.
Jordan is awesome!!! He found us exactly what we wanted and with his connections made the whole process go very smoothly. I’m not very good at writing these things so I’ll borrow from other reviews the words that best describe Jordan: patient, kind, understanding, accessible, very responsive, exceptionally friendly, hard-working, accommodating, intuitive, provided good unbiased opinions and guidance. It was truly a great experience and we are so happy with our investment!
Bought my first home with Jordan’s help! He was always available if I had any questions or wanted to look at a listing. Jordan provided comparables which were very helpful in making me feel comfortable with my offer. Thanks Jordan.
Phil was extremely helpful in helping me find a place that was suited to all my needs and in my budget. He was very easy to get in contact with whenever I had questions for him and responded very promptly! I enjoyed working with Phil because of his friendliness, professionalism, reliability, and ability to help me with my housing in such a great manner! Excellent.
I was referred to Jordan through a friend many years ago. I have since sold two homes with him. I can’t possibly say enough good things about Jordan. My last sale was complicated due to a separation. Jordan went above and beyond in managing the sale of this home. He expertly and professionally managed differing opinions in the sale process, keeping conflict at a minimum and meeting the needs of both my ex and I while accommodating potential buyers’ requests and providing sound advice on all fronts. I went back to Jordan for the second home that I was selling because I loved how he managed the listing of my first home and because he was always available for a discussion or comment any time of day. After experiencing his professionalism with the sale of my second home I can honestly say that he’s the best agent out there and I will strongly recommend him to anyone interested in selling or buying a home.
Choosing an estate agent can be a difficult first step when buying/selling a home. Jordan became my choice after “cold-calling” him regarding a property he represented. He offered sound advice, good feedback…and never once played the ‘salesman’ game by pushing to be my agent. It didn’t take long to determine that Jordan is knowledgable, thorough, and certainly takes note of your concerns and requirements. I will recommend Jordan to anyone looking to enter the real estate market. He will no doubt be my agent of choice when it is time for the next investment.
Jordan took care of everything. He is knowledgable, hard working & patient. Couldn’t ask for a better realtor.
We sold a rental property with Jordan. He kept us in the loop every step of the way! He does his homework and is very knowledgeable about what is and was on the market. It was a very smooth and easy process with Jordan. We would recommend him to everyone!
I had a great experience working with Phil; he was always very professional and quick to respond to any questions I had.
Truly cannot think of enough great things to say about my experience working with Jordan while purchasing my first home! I had a very specific list of what I knew I wanted, and what I didn’t, and Jordan was incredibly patient and supportive while we made our way through numerous listings. I always felt like he had my best interest in mind, and would not let me settle for anything less than what he knew I was looking for. He is not only very personable and wonderful to be around, but also extremely knowledgable about the real estate market — a real 10/10!
Jordan is friendly, hard working, thoughtful, and patient- and above all he loves what he does! He is easy to reach and very accommodating to requests and schedules.If you’re looking for someone who genuinely cares about you then you can count on Jordan to go above and beyond before, during, and after you buy/sell your home.
We have contracted with Jordan to assist in finding a condo for my dad and then selling his house. We were very picky about location, but he got the job done and done quickly. He was so accommodating that he made us feel that we were his top priority.
We found his knowledge of the real estate market was spot on and was extremely professional.
We have recommended him to my daughter to help find her first house so that says a lot on the respect we have for him.
Jordan was recommended by a friend. Very accommodating, and no pressure at any time to buy, unless it was exactly what we wanted. Very professional, knowledgeable, and I would recommend Jordan to anyone looking to purchase a home. Thanks!
Jordan was referred to us via a friend who was very happy with his work.
Jordan is an exceptionally friendly, hard-working, intuitive, and patient realtor who made our first home purchase as easy as it could be. He made the whole process of finding and seeing listings easy, whether this came from his own website, or from our own search. He was very responsive and accommodating to our schedules. He provided unbiased opinions and advice (e.g. Pros and cons of each listing) without over-selling his own properties/firm. He would make suggestions tailored to our needs and wants, picking up on discussions between my husband and I. He also has a network and connections (e.g. Contractors, lawyers, home inspector) necessary for the entire home purchasing process. His construction background also provides a unique insight into structural elements of existing homes, or proposed renovations.
All in all, Jordan stuck with us through the ups and downs of being first time home buyers, and we would absolutely recommend him to others looking to buy or sell a home.
Working with Jordan has made the process of buying our first home a very simple one. Ever since he came out to meet us on a Sunday evening we knew he was gonna always be there for us. He is very knowledgeable and knows exactly what you have to do and how you have to do it, and if he doesn’t know he will definitely find out for you. He is the most professional, attentive, understanding realtor we know. We only regret not having enough money to buy another house from him!
Jordan recently assisted us with the purchase of an investment property in Kingston. We found him to be professional, pleasant, and very accommodating. Jordan helped make the process of selecting the property quick and easy, Definitely would recommend!!
Phil was super helpful in getting me into my new place. Very accommodating and flexible on meeting times. Went above and beyond to get me what and where I wanted to be. Thanks Phil!
Just wanted to say thank you again, very happy with the house. Cheers!
Great to work with. Very patient with his clients and very honest when viewing houses. Very knowledgeable. Explains everything step by step and truly helps you at every step of the way.
He has exceptional knowledge of the housing market.
he is always available to answer all questions and concerns at any time. I felt confident and very satisfied with purchase of home.
Simply awesome. Jordan was super informative, provided his thoughts and suggestions on my many questions. He had no issues driving almost 1 hour away to look at houses, on multiple occasions. I highly recommend Jordan, you will not be disappointed.
Jordan is fantastic and I would recommend his services to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
I have requested Phil’s help to find an apartment in Kingston. Quickly he answers and asked me the right questions regarding my needs. prior our fist showing, he sent to me many apartments that were booked for a visit. During the visits, he was very helpfull by heping me to ask the rights question regarding the potential lease. Unfortunatly, some apartments were not available anymore and quickly, he was able to propose and book more showing and finaly, Phil found for me the right apartment perfect for my need.. Definitely, I wish recommend Phil Willemsent to anywone who is looking for an apartment or a house.
Phil helped me find the perfect place for my need in these hard time with the covid-19. He was always polite, on time and professional. He got back to me quickly by phone, text or email. Overall very satisfied and happy with his services.
While planning to purchase our first home Phil has been super helpful and approachable with all of our questions! He’s professional but very easy to talk to and accommodating while navigating the real estate market!
My husband and I have used Jordan for several years as we found our perfect home. He was never impatient with us and never made us feel like we were a bother to him. He never once tried to talk us in to writing an offer we weren’t happy with. Throughout the process of buying and selling our house, he made us feel like we were his most important client – always available to us at any time of the day. I would highly recommend Jordan whether buying or selling. The customer service you will receive is second to none
Phil was extremely professional and knowledgeable of the real estate market in Kingston. He was very helpful during every step of the process and made it an extremely easy process to deal with him. He always went above and beyond with everything he did.
My husband and I are lessons on what not to do when selling a home!! After trying to sell our house ourselves and failing miserably we had to leave the country and needed someone we could trust to continue to tru and get the best price for our home. Jordon was that person and set up multiple open houses and viewingsand was able to secure us a buyer. And the best part is he was able to do it all with us in another country! Well done Jordan and Thank you
Thank you Jordan for expediting the estate sale of my parents house in Glenburnie. Your attention to detail and advice helped us prepare for the sale, and we appreciate all that you did to get the house sold in a weekend for more than asking price ! It was fantastic when you called and said, ‘We’ve got a couple offers on the house!’ We are very pleased with all you did for us. Your patience and sincerity were greatly appreciated at a most difficult time for our family. I highly recommend your services to anyone seeking to complete a real estate transaction
We have buy and sell with Jordan. He is very professional and easy to work with. Highly recommended and will definitely work with him in the future for any real estate need!
Patricia and Ryan would like to send a huge thank you to Phillip Willemsen and Jordan Quaresma at Remax Rise.
What a time to sell a house! We sincerely appreciate the hard work you and Jordan at Remax Rise put into selling our home and making us feel safe during this difficult time. Your professionalism, enthusiasm, and guidance were beyond appreciated and we will never be able to thank you enough. They sold our home in the thick of the Pandemic this spring. If you are lucky enough to have Phillip or Jordan represent you then you are in good hands.
Patricia and Ryan
Jordan was extremely helpful in our search to find a home when relocating to Kingston. He was always available for any questions we had, he was honest about properties and never pushed for a sale. Jordan is also really well connected in the Kingston area and had a contact for just about every service we needed. I highly recommend working with him!
A realtor that we would recommend in a heartbeat!
Jordan worked tirelessly for over one year to locate our dream home for us. We had very specific requirements and Jordan provided an unbiased opinion to ensure we had an honest and informative review of each property he showed. He is enthusiastic, punctual and personable.
We had the pleasure of working with Jordan.
He helped us navigate through a competitive market with confidence. His skills and competence were so reassuring.
We were very happy and satisfied with his work (his work ethics), guidance and by his availability. We highly recommend Jordan for his dedication. He is a highly focused and hard working realtor but also pleasant and positive! Thanks for everything Jordan!
Jordan is the best. He accompanied our family through every step of the selling process. He communicated daily and negotiated the sale masterfully. Thank you, Jordan!

Jordans colourful socks aren’t the only thing that stand out about this man! I was what some may call “difficult” with an unrealistic wish list for a first home. He is a lovely person, very knowledgable, and extremely patient.
Needless to say, we highly recommed him !
Thank you Jordan for all of your help and patience !
Thank you so much for buying the house.
I am so appreciative of your support
Looking forward to seeing you again soon!
What a great agent. We were referred to Jordan by a family member that highly recommended him. He took care of everything. Very knowledgeable and goes the extra mile for his clients. Thank you Jordan for finding us our dream home.
Jordan is a true professional, his knowledge of the market and honest feedback made every step of the process seem easy. The personalized listings and flexibility with showings made me feel like I was always top priority. I would recommend Jordan’s services to anyone looking to buy a home.
He is always quick on responding. Amazing! And always try to find a solution for you.
Jordan is an amazing real estate agent and I would recommend him to anyone I know. This was my second time using Jordan in the house hunting process and he never fails to succeed. He truly puts his best efforts forward to ensure his clients are happy. If you want to find your dream home, this is your guy!
Jordan helped me navigate my first home purchase! I had to find a home in a short amount of time, yet didn’t know exactly what I wanted, so Jordan was responsive to the time crunch as well as patient in helping me narrow down the type of home that would suit me through process of elimination. Jordan was also helpful in referring me to a lawyer in his network that complemented his services well in that they were also responsive and professional in getting the job done. I will definitely be using Jordan for future real estate needs and referring friends and family over. Thanks for everything, Jordan!!
As a tenured Mortgage broker I can attest for Jordan’s level of expertise in the real estate market. He is a true professional and very dedicated. He communicates well with everyone involved in the process (such as but not limited to the lawyers, home inspectors, insurance companies etc.) but more importantly is very attentive to the home buyers and will always has his client’s best interest at heart.
Jordan Quaresma is warm, professional and in a word – AWESOME! He did an exceptional job preparing and recommending selling strategies and he sold my mom’s home in only one week. Since my husband and I live out of town, he helped us above and beyond. Highly recommend working with Jordan if you have the opportunity – he delivers!!!
Well done Jordan – Thank you so much on behalf of our family.
You will have to hire more Jordan Quaresmas!!! I am very impressed with his courteous professional presentation of your company and of course his integrity – the best!
Jordan did a great job of negotiating the sale of my house in Kingston. He was always professional and always reachable. He answered all my questions as well as patiently clarifying my concerns. He kept me informed throughout the selling process which I really appreciated.
It was a pleasure working with Jordan and I recommend him to anyone looking for a great realtor.
Jordan was upfront and honest with us throughout the whole process, a valuable asset when buying or selling.
Jordan Quaresma is very professional , knowledgeable, dedicated and very responsive. Thank you Jordan for accommodating all our needs and helping us every step of the way. We are extremely satisfied with your service. Keep up the great work that you do to make your customers dream come true!!
Jordan was excellent. As first time home buyers we had many questions. Jordan always answered promptly (anytime night or day) and never made us feel like we were bothering him. He took the time to understand our needs and contacted us if a house came available that he thought we would like so we wouldn’t miss out. He told us exactly what he thought about different houses and helped us see the flaws so we would know what we were getting into. He helped find and buy our dream home. If we ever buy/sell a house again we will 100% be going with him!
I’ve bought and sold many homes, and this is the first time I’ve written a review for a realtor. Jordan went above and beyond in helping us find our home. The Kingston market was hot – competitive, priced for multiple bids, and homes were selling almost immediately upon listing. Jordan helped us get our perfect home with his knowledge of the market, tireless work ethic, and commitment to sterling client service. After we got our house Jordan helped connect us with excellent professionals to help us finish our home just as we want. We highly recommend Jordan, and will be using him for all our future real estate transactions.
As a first time home buyer, we searched quite a bit to find a real estate agent that we trusted and who we felt comfortable with. From the first time we met Jordan, we were instantly at ease and felt that we could trust him completely to find us the perfect home. Jordan was very attentive to what we were looking for and made sure we were happy and content every step of the way. He patiently explained and clarified the entire process which made it really easy for us to trust his opinions and advice. Jordan was always so accommodating and easy to reach at any time and was always willing to answer any of our questions, even if it was out of his scope. We felt that Jordan was a friend and was truly looking out for us. We are extremely happy and we highly recommend working with Jordan!
Can’t say enough about Jordan and his support, guiding us through our first home purchase. He was professional, informative and attentive throughout the entire process. Jordan provides top notch and friendly service, which naturally puts you at ease knowing you’re in good hands. His knowledge of the local market and trends is outstanding, which was a great asset to our decision making. We look forward to working with Jordan again!
Jordan was amazing to work with. Selling and buying is very stressful at the best of times let alone in the middle of a pandemic with three kids under 4! Jordan was very confident and knowledgeable walking us through different sales strategies and helping us pick what was most comfortable for us. He was able to guide us on what details we should focus our energy on for staging the house and never once made us feel like we were pestering him! My oldest daughter was disappointed when we sold and wouldn’t see him as often! Highly recommend.
Jordan was referred to us through our mortgage broker, and we are so glad he was. Jordan is a great real estate agent who was constantly on call and would never hesitate to adventure out to any type of property. Jordan excels in his field of work, and it’s easy to see his dedication to his clients. I would recommend Jordan to anyone looking for a real estate agent, and i can guarantee you will not be disappointed. Jordan’s patience and complete honesty was much appreciated through out the entire home buying process. Overall, he made what could have been a stressful process as simple as possible, while even making it a little bit fun! Thanks again Jordan!
Jordan helped us buy our first house! a friend referred him to us and we are totally happy with all the help he gave us. we bought our house in only 7 days and that’s because of him! he was always available and that was really important because he worked with our schedule and made things easier for us. highly recommended!
We have buy and sell with Jordan. He is very professional and easy to work with. Highly recommended and will definitely work with him in the future for any real estate need!
Jordan was great! He is very attentive to detail and he was great with working around our schedules. He worked very hard and kept his ear to the ground to help find our first home, which we are very happy with. He helped explain the whole process step-by-step and made it easy to understand. We were very happy with his services
We recommend Jordan to all our friends and family in Kingston.He exceeded our expectations and did it with a smile. Jordan negotiated on our best behalf to secure the home we wanted, with the conditions we needed, at a price we could afford.
It is not easy to get your first home in today’s market. Jordan made it easy for me. From viewing to closing, Jordan has been prompt, patient, detail oriented and resourceful. Jordan gives good advice when it comes to the value and potential of a property. Definitely will work with him again in the future.
Jordan is an excellent agent! We had the best experience with him as he kept us up-to-date over a few months (prior to our sale) on changes, etc. We highly recommend Jordan to others. He is very professional & charismatic.
Jordan helped us find our first home and was an absolute pleasure throughout the process. He was extremely patient in sifting through all the lemons in search of the perfect house. Jordan took into consideration all our needs and wants all while juggling within our price range. His overall knowledge and advice when looking at houses calmed our “first time home buyer” nerves. We would highly recommend the Realty Source team and more specifically Jordan with all your home buying and selling needs. Thanks again Jordan, Cheers pal.
