I am a full-time and full-service realtor. My “raison d'être”, in real estate, is to see that my clients achieve their real estate goals and objectives. This could include helping a listing client get the most money for their property, assisting a buyer client in finding excellent value in a new home, or getting a deal completed in a limited amount of time. Clients are all different with varying goals. Your objectives become my objectives! My “Mission” is to help my clients achieve those goals. I work for my clients, and that is job #1. I have assisted clients all over the Ottawa region to buy and sell properties.
My approach is to
1) Listen to my clients to understand their objectives,
2) Counsel them on how to achieve their goals,
3) Work with them to create a plan to achieve those goals and objectives, and
4) Execute that plan.
This is not always the typical approach taken by the average Realtor; however I do not consider myself to be average. This approach works. Communication is key. I have made the process completely customizable to my clients, their needs, their time horizons, and not my needs or timelines.
After buying and selling homes since 1988, I can appreciate the emotions involved in a property purchase, or sale, as well as the magnitude of the investment. For most of us, it is the largest financial investment we will make in our lifetime. I fully understand this and I will work tirelessly to help you achieve your real estate dreams.
My wife and I own a couple of cash flow investment properties which have helped to diversify our retirement portfolio. We are very comfortable being landlords, and we understand the financial, mental, and physical effort required to be investors and landlords. I am always willing to share our experiences to help others thinking of taking the investment plunge.
I come from a military family; I was born in Nova Scotia, and moved between Ontario and Quebec throughout my youth. I met and married my wife in Kingston in 1983. We moved to Ottawa in 1984 and began to raise our family here. We have four wonderful children. I worked for years in the high tech industry at Cognos and IBM. My hobbies include downhill skiing, golfing, softball, and real estate investing.
After living in both the west and south ends of the city, we made Orleans our community. We have lived here for close to 25 years. It is a pleasure for me to recommend this part of the city to anyone looking for a terrific place to live, but I do buy and sell all over the Ottawa Region. As everyone who resides in the Ottawa area already knows, Ottawa is a great city, and I look forward to working with people who share the same sentiment.
I am extremely proud to be a full-time, full-service realtor, ready to help you achieve your realty goals.
It does not matter where you want to buy or sell a property in Ontario, I can help you achieve your goals and objectives.
