Resale and New


My quick action philosophy allows you to receive new listings as soon as they become available, and sometimes before they hit the multiple listing system. You will be contacted promptly (you choose how you want us to reach you) with new listings that match your needs to give you the best opportunity to buy the perfect home.My Buyer Program is comprehensive and includes a glossary of terms that you may not be familiar with. It outlines the steps we will take with you to achieve your goal.

As an accredited Buyer Representative with extensive experience in buyer representation, I will provide a buyer program which clearly outlines our obligations and our commitment in representing you.At the outset, I will discuss the procedure of representation and the nature of the agent/client relationship. I want to ensure that you understand the process and are entirely comfortable with us as your agents from the start.

One of the most important aspects of a successful relationship is openness and trust and we strive to maintain this aspect at all times. As your agent, I will ensure that you are familiar with the full range of available properties meeting your criteria – not just our listings.

You will receive objective advice on the factors and features influencing your selection of a home.


We can assist you in your purchase of a new home from a builder.

The procedure is as follows:

1) first and foremost let me accompany you on your initial visit to the builder’s sales office to formally register you with the builder and 2) consult with you throughout your subsequent dealings with the builder especially prior to selecting a particular lot location and finalizing your list of upgrades.

These aspects have important implications for the future value and marketability of your home.

If you want to see any of the new home sites and wish me to assist you, please discuss your requirements with myself ahead of the builder visits. Remember builders’ policies generally require that you register at their sales offices with your agent present, if you wish to have a REALTOR® represent you.

Be Informed Before You Sign

"Call me for detailed information on the various Builders with current sites in the Ottawa area. I visit Builders regularly and I am familiar with most site locations. I can also give you a copy of our Guide to Buying New Construction before you make that major decision to buy."
