We’re your neighbourhood experts
The Ottawa region is divided into localized communities starting in the urban areas and moving outwards into the suburbs and rural areas. The Greenbelt, which was created in the 1950s borders much of the urban parts of the city and contains 20,000 hectares of green space. The wetlands, farms, forests, streams, and trails were originally purposed to prevent urban sprawl. Today, it continues this function along with sustaining biodiversity and ecological health in Canada’s capital.Learn more

Amazing to have complete trust in a real estate agent! Donna treated me like a friend/family member and was always there with information and encouragement when I needed it. She asked a much higher price than I expected and succeeded in attracting and negotiating two excellent offers in a short time. She has extraordinary ability to network. I loved the email notification and feedback for showings and felt supported throughout. Donna listened to my needs and put my interests above her own.
We want to say that Jacob is an exemplary agent, very mature, competent and modest. A very professional young man whom we would recommend to anyone as an excellent all around agent. Thank you!

We were quite impressed that you researched the markets thoroughly, and your commitment to communication with us was top notch - you always kept us in the loop! Also, thank you for giving us the experienced perspective on many matters related to neighbourhoods, home ownership, and even gardening! 🙂 It was a pleasure working with you! and we are happy that Susanna recommended you as well. Based on our experience, we would gladly recommend you to others as well. Thanks again, and we wish you all the best in your future endeavors!

Jacob is unbelievable! He was indefatigable at finding just what we wanted. He pointed is in the right direction when we were headed down the wrong way. I could NEVER have done this so easily on my own. As first time home buyers Jacobs advice and service were invaluable! You need to clone that guy pronto!
