Welcome to my Ottawa Real Estate site, OttawaAgent.ca.
I created this site in 2005 and while it has evolved over the years, the focus is on two things:
- my clients’ properties
- critical thinking about buying and selling Ottawa real estate for home or investment.
When I was considering a career in real estate in 2005 after 19 years in the high tech industry, I met with a 35-year veteran Broker to talk about how the business works and to help me decide whether or not I would enjoy it, and be able to successfully serve clients. My biggest concern was that I would not succeed because I am not a sales person – I am not going to try to convince anyone to buy something, and I’m not going to do anything that is not in their best interest. In my view, a Realtor is a consultant, researcher, project manager, problem solver, advisor, advocate, and property marketing expert.
You’ll find articles in my blog that are not what you expect a real estate agent to write. I reveal to you the secrets and lore, misconceptions and tricks, pitfalls and perks of working with real estate agents to buy and sell properties. A great agent will help you achieve your objectives while saving you time and money. When you hire me to represent you, my objective is to provide you with information and insights you need to make smart decisions to help you achieve your objectives; to successfully buy or sell real estate for home or investment in Ottawa.
