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

What happy clients are saying
Donna knows what to do and gets it all done quickly and efficiently. She definitely made us feel confident that we were being served as well as could be.
Jacob was the perfect fit for our real estate needs. He was very attentive and quick to return calls and get us into homes we wanted to see. He allowed us to explore all of our options and helped guide us through the process. He was not willing to let us settle on just any house, and kept working until we found the perfect fit for us. The way he treated both of us was with the utmost of respect, while finding the perfect balance between business professional and a friend who wanted the best for you. Even with a less than straight forward transaction, he was willing to go the extra mile to ensure we had all of our concerns and issues alleviated. We have already, and will continue to, send friends and family to Jacob, as we trusted him implicitly, and know he will look after others as well as he looked after us. Thanks Floyd Team!

Hi. I can finally get to this! And I just looked at your "testimonials" page...this is not gonna make it there...tooo long. 🙂 I have been a client since 1990 - dealth with the Floyd Team on 7 different occasions: from property evaluations to buying and/or selling. Because of Glenn, Donna and Jacob, I have come to expect an above and beyond service: very professional, very knowledgeable, very honest and very friendly. And my recent experience only proved, again, why I did not even hesitate for a second to give them a call. Glenn: thank you so much for walking with me through the initial stage of looking for a house with a familiar person I have come to truly trust as my agent and as a friend, I needed this. And, at the perfect timing, you transferred me over to Jacob. Jacob: you are a welcomed and valued addition to the Floyd team! I have watched you grow up and all along one could see that you are a very intelligent person. This time, I needed to trust you with this big step I was taking and I immediately saw that you have been mentored very well - you are professional in what you do; and you truly do do your homework! Thank you for being frank with me when you thought a property would not suit my needs. Thank you also for being sensitive to my needs, wishes and fears; it really helped me to feel and know that you had everything under control. You walked with me well throughout the searching, negotiations and closing stages by good, frequent and fun communications, and you genuinely shared in my joy at the finish line. This time, I tasted from the other side the unpleasant fruit of dishonest dealings; how refreshing it was to experience that, after all these years, the Floyd Team has remained true to their original promise: an accountable and ethical business. Know that you stand out brightly! I will always cherish this overcoming experience in my life and be grateful, again, for the strong arm of the Floyd Team to walk it with! Regards and Blessings!

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.
