WELCOME Thank you for stopping by my website. I hope you will return often for information on properties for sale, interesting neighbourhoods and resources for buyers and sellers.

I have a long-standing interest in real estate but I initially chose a career in public sector administration, training and project management. Now I can combine those many years of experience with that passion for real estate for your relocation project and to help you manage transitions in what is probably your largest investment. I have also been an executive, fund raiser and events coordinator for several non-profit sector organizations, mainly in the creative arts field. Real estate is all about connections such as these and about networking to find buyers and sellers for you.

I have handled all sorts of properties – downtown, suburbs and rural, and from starters to custom luxury homes. As you can see from my testimonials, I know that a sales representative has to go beyond merely shuffling the paperwork. I have worked with families and singles, seniors and first-timers. Just about everyone needs some help to avoid surprises or cope with them. When you are interviewing realtors to help you buy or sell, ask them if they have

  • held a garage sale to help clients de-clutter,
  • seen through asbestos remediation,
  • had a septic system fixed,
  • dealt with aluminum wiring,
  • handled a chain of conditional buys and sells,
  • stored clients’ furniture in their garage,
  • used their own van to move clients’ stuff,
  • negotiated with clients 12 time zones away,
  • sold stuff for clients on Kijiji and Craigslist,
  • found a reliable handyman for last minute repairs,
  • coordinated out of town adult siblings selling a parent’s home,
  • lent clients furniture and art for staging or
  • found high-potential homes for flippers and helped them sell after renovations?

In other words,  are they really “full servce”?

As a life long resident, I know the Ottawa area well and can give you accurate information on real estate values, taxes, utility costs, services and amenities. I am an experienced negotiator and will work for you to get you the best possible price. My goal is to provide you and your family with the best possible service and experience.  I look forward to hearing from you.
