ottawa real estate: WHY OTTAWA IS A GREAT CITY FOR FIRST-TIME HOMEBUYERS - 02/26/17 02:29 PM
Over my more than 30 years as a realtor in the Ottawa area, I’ve helped many clients through the process of buying their first home or condo, and I’ve always found it particularly rewarding to see the excitement they feel at having a place they can call their own after years of renting.
Partly this is because of my expertise and longtime experience helping clients buy and sell condominium units. I’ve been assisting buyers and sellers with condo sales going back to long before the big boom in condo construction in Ottawa.
For many young singles or couples who might not have a … (2 comments)

We’re in the midst of winter, when spring and summer can feel a long way off, but if you’re considering listing your home during the most popular home-buying season, it’s not too early now to get in touch so we can start the process and be ready.
Home sellers, and particularly those who are selling a home for the first time, are often surprised by the amount of advance time and preparation we need before we can officially list a home for sale and start showings and open houses.

ottawa real estate: Thinking of downsizing to a smaller home or condo? I can help - 01/15/17 10:42 AM
One of the rewards of working in real estate for more than 30 years is that I’ve had the pleasure of helping many clients through the selling and buying process at different stages in their lives.
In some cases, I’ve helped couples with two or three young children find a big family home. Then, years later, as their children have grown and moved out to study and begin careers, I’ve worked with those same couples in selling their large properties and finding something that’s smaller and better suited to them at this new phase of their lives. Sometimes I’ve also helped their … (2 comments)
