Chez Piétine - Key informations

An Outremont institution

Nearly 40 years after their opening, Chaussures Piétine still retains its loyal clientele in the Outremont neighborhood, while also reaching out to fans of the shoe store concept for young children, who travel from all over the city to receive the judicious advice of the owner, Nadielle Kutlu, regarding their little ones’ needs.

Located on the charming Querbes Avenue, near the Laurier West intersection, Chez Piétine offers a concept and exclusive products that have been delighting consumers for several generations now. It is with a real passion and contagious joy that Nadielle welcomed us in the boutique she now owns, to share a little piece of her knowledge.

Renowned brands

Offering high quality European brands such as Ricosta, Pom d’Api, Petit Nord and many others, Chez Piétine takes its mission to heart to offer children quality shoes, comfortable and above all, adapted to kids’ little feet! Without being trained podiatrists, Nadielle and her employees are passionate enough about the field to advise parents to the best of their knowledge when they are looking for an adapted and comfortable model… while being, let’s face it, very cute!

Even real estate brokers are shoe lovers

Danièle Papazian, a real estate broker on our team, is an avid fan of the boutique where she has brought her children since they were very young in order to offer them shoes that are adapted to their needs, and of a style that is both sought-after and unique in its kind. The great attention paid to the choice of products and the materials used to make them is one of the points of differentiation that Danièle mentions when she talks about the Outremont boutique. Apple leather, recycled materials, soft, comfortable and non-toxic, the employees at Piétine make it their duty to select items whose materials are suitable for the particular needs of infants whose first steps are an important stage of development, as well as for children of school age.

Rain boots, sandals, booties, athletic shoes and slippers, Piétine offers a wide selection of carefully chosen products that meet the highest standards of comfort.

Innovating through change

If the pandemic was a brake on the development of the business model of many, this business, which has become an institution in the Outremont neighborhood, took advantage of it to reinvent itself, while continuing to offer the outstanding service for which they are known to their loyal customers.

In the summer of 2021, the store installed a large outdoor carpet to accommodate customers in a sanitary manner, while allowing toddlers to enjoy the space to walk, run and try on their new shoes! Nadielle Kutlu also offered its in-home services to customers who needed precise advice on the size, style or comfort their little ones needed, a problem exacerbated by the closure of physical stores, leaving parents with no option but to order their toddler’s first pair of sneakers online.

If you don’t know this charming neighborhood business, which has become a real institution over the decades, the boutique Chez Piétine is definitely worth a visit for all new parents and lovers of quality and adapted products who want to spoil their little ones with original shoes of unbeatable quality.

The Piétine boutique is located on 111 Querbes Avenue in Montreal.

Buyer's Guide - Key informations

First purchase in real estate

Are you looking for a property? You are getting ready to make your first real estate investment and are looking for information and advice on the steps and procedures to follow to complete this major project.

Our team of real estate brokers has prepared a summary document, inspired by the OACIQ Buyer’s Guide, which outlines the main steps to follow in order to carry out your project in complete confidence.

Here is a summary of the main topics covered in this buyer’s guide.

BEFORE: The search for the perfect property

The first important step is to establish your budget. Indeed, it is important that it takes into account your lifestyle, your daily expenses, your payments, your debts, while taking into account your medium and long term objectives.

This way, you will know exactly what budget you can allocate to the purchase of a property, in addition to directing your search in the right direction, towards homes that respect your budget limit.

Mortgage pre-approval

It will then be important to have a mortgage pre-approval that assesses your ability to borrow from the bank. This document will be given to you by a mortgage broker, who will probably use one of the following two ratios :

ratios en immobilier

Down payment

You will then need to determine the amount of your down payment, which is the amount you will have to pay when you purchase the property. This amount will then be deducted from the purchase price of the property. This amount will depend on the type of property you are purchasing (divided co-ownership, undivided, income property, etc.).

Additional fees

As a real estate buyer, you should also set aside a preventive amount to cover the inspection, notary fees, transfer duties and all other expenses related to the acquisition of a property, as well as any unforeseen circumstances that may arise.

HBP – Home Buyers' Plan

Also note that if this is your first real estate purchase, the HBP (Home Buyer’s Plan) may be of interest to you! Consult our guide to find out more about it.

Research criteria

Also, be sure to define your search criteria, the geographic area you are looking for, the type of neighborhood you want to live in, your needs, restrictions, etc. A detailed sheet in our buyer’s guide will help you narrow down your search criteria.

Contact one of our real estate brokers to help you establish your criteria.


If you wish to do business with a professional in the sector, discover our real estate brokers in Montreal who will be pleased to accompany you in your steps. Real estate professionals are protected by the Real Estate Brokerage Act, which, as mentioned by the OACIQ, will help protect you during your transaction.

In addition, real estate brokers generally have a network of contacts that will allow you to surround yourself with the best experts in each of the fields necessary for a successful transaction: mortgage broker, notary, inspector and others.

The Seller's Declaration

The Seller’s Declaration is the document in which the seller records all the information he or she is aware of about his or her property that may help future buyers make up their minds about the property, including any defects or irregularities in the location.

The Promise to Purchase

Have you found the perfect home? Now it’s time to write the Promise to Purchase (PTP), the official and mandatory document that tells the sellers that you want to buy their property. It is in this document that you indicate the price at which you wish to purchase the property as well as the conditions of your offer. The Promise to Purchase is a negotiating tool between the parties and is therefore negotiable.

The inspection

Although you may decide not to ask for a building inspection before signing the promise to purchase, your broker must recommend it! More information on this subject can be found in our guide for buyers.

AFTER the acceptance of the offer to purchase

The transfer of the property

Once the Promise to Purchase is accepted, the next step is to formalize the transaction. The two main components of this step are the title examination and the deed of sale. The transfer of the property requires the involvement of a notary. Again, your real estate broker plays a crucial role in ensuring that the required documents are available.

The deed of sale

The final step in the transaction is the drafting and signing of the deed of sale, in order to make the purchase of the property official. The notary will specify, among other things, the clauses and conditions essential to the protection of your rights.

5 tips for the sale of your property - Key informations

The sale of a condo, house or plex is an important step for anyone and requires preparation. Indeed, a property must be well prepared for sale in order to arouse any interest: the first impression counts. After all, buying a property often goes through a lightning bolt or falling in love with different characteristics of the latter.

With the arrival of Valentine’s Day and the current real estate bustle, our team got together and spoke with the Metro Journal to establish 6 practical tips essential to seduce potential buyers. These tips have the specific purpose of achieving the desired effect, namely the sale of the property. To discover these 6 tips, consult the Petit Guide de Séduction immobilière.

In order to further entice potential buyers when visiting your property, we have established 5 additional tips. Here is their overview:

Practical tips for the sale of your property

1. Clean up the property

Cleanliness is an important determinant in the success of selling your property. A clean property is more attractive. Every room should be carefully cleaned. You have to be sure to empty the garbage cans, clean the floors, make the beds and dust the furniture. Closets are not to be neglected either, as potential buyers could be curious and open them during visits.

In a property, the kitchen and bathroom are rooms where extra attention should be paid. These pieces are naturally more ‘combed’ because of their utilitarian character and must then be immaculately clean.

Cuisine lumineuse et moderne Montréal

2. Depersonalize spaces

To seduce a buyer is also to make sure that he/she can imagine living in said property. Depersonalization is essential and refers to removing elements that may harm the sense of belonging of the potential buyer. For example, remove family photos or travel souvenir frames from walls. Your clothes or shoes should not be lying around the property either. It is then important to create a neutral environment where the buyer will be comfortable and ‘feel at home’.

Salon lumineux à Montréal

3. Focus on home staging

Home staging is a method to improve the ergonomics and aesthetics of a room. This technique includes moving furniture, adding decorative elements to the room or rearranging the entire space to make it more welcoming. Your real estate broker has the knowledge in this area and can help you to carry out an efficient and attractive home staging for the buyer. Don’t hesitate to ask your real estate broker for advice!

4. Offer a haven of serenity

The seduction of a buyer also depends on the calm he can experience during his/her visit. Make sure the windows are properly closed, the radio is turned off and your neighbors are not undergoing major renovations. A calm environment inspires trust and is then much more seller for a buyer.

5. Have your pets looked after

Pets are very cute, but they can sometimes create unfortunate situations. For example, during visits, a potential buyer may be uncomfortable with the presence of an animal or even allergic. Whenever possible, keep your pet with a loved one or bring it with you during visits to avoid unpleasant situations.

With these 5 handy tips for selling your property, the seduction of your buyers is almost guaranteed. It is now the turn of the expertise of your real estate broker to ensure his/her love at first sight!

Our team has established 5 practical tips to seduce potential buyers during the sale of his property: do the big cleaning, depersonalize the spaces, bet on elements of home staging, provide a tranquil environment and if you have pets, if possible, have them kept. For tips inspired by Valentine’s Day, we invite you to read our article published in the Metro Journal!

Why buy with a real estate broker - Key information

Why deal with a broker for a real estate purchase

The purchase of a property is without a doubt a very important step in the life of many people. Visits, offers, counter-offers, negotiations, legal paperwork, etc., the purchase of a house is a complex process that requires a lot of time, research and energy.

Indeed, finding the property that will make your heart beat faster while meeting the criteria, desires and needs you have set for yourself can be a considerable task. Working with an experienced real estate broker who is an expert in the areas you are considering for the purchase of your property can be a smart move that will not only reduce your mental load, but also put part of your real estate project in the hands of a seasoned expert and enthusiast.

A well regulated profession

It should also be noted that real estate brokers in Québec hold an official permit issued by the Organisme d’autoréglementation du courtage immobilier du Québec (OACIQ), which provides them with guaranteed expertise, in addition to requiring them to abide by strict rules governing their profession and protecting you as a consumer.

Project of law 5

Finally, with Bill 5, amending the Real Estate Brokerage Act, a broker can no longer represent both the seller and the buyer. This double representation could indeed lead to certain problems, notably major conflicts of interest. With the amendment of this law, the buyer benefits from greater protection and guaranteed loyalty on the part of his broker as well as a better defence of his own interests.

But in concrete terms, why do business with a real estate broker for a purchase?

1.   As an expert in the real estate market, working with a real estate broker will allow you to buy the property you are looking for at a fair price, according to the state of the market, thanks to the comparative analysis of the property carried out beforehand by the broker.

2.  A real estate broker working with a team of industry experts will also be able to assist and guide you in completing the various legal documents required to purchase (and sell) a property, including the Promise to Purchase, the Seller’s Declaration and the Notarial Act.

3.  In the same vein, your real estate broker will be able to accompany you and advise you with the professionals you will meet along the way, notably the mortgage broker, the inspector and the notary, in addition to having a negotiating strength that will set you apart from other potential buyers.

4.  Your real estate broker’s references and contacts, regarding the professionals mentioned above, could also be useful to you. Indeed, depending on the sector you are looking for, your broker will be able to recommend experts whose specific knowledge will make the difference (especially regarding the inspection of the property) in the buying process.

Finally, doing business with a real estate broker is free for the seller since the fees paid for his services are assumed by the seller of the residence the buyer is purchasing (to pay for the services of the listing broker and the collaborating broker. The amount of the commission is included in the Promise to Purchase, which is signed by both parties to the transaction).

Are you looking for your dream property? You wish to sell your home to start a new chapter in your life? Do not hesitate to contact one of our real estate brokers, it will be our pleasure to accompany you and guide you through the different steps of your process!
