Knowledge you can count on!
Experience you can trust!
Our goal: To make your real estate experience memorable and profitable.
When it comes time to buy or sell your home, you need someone to represent you who has proven real estate knowledge, experience and service.
We are dedicated to serving you with integrity and honesty. We believe you deserve the best in service. We are customers too. We need and want services just like you do and we know how it feels to be disappointed, shuffled off to someone else or ignored.
Knowledge – We have extensive knowledge of the Ottawa real estate market – selling and finding homes all over the region. We have help clients from Orleans to Barrhaven to Kanata to Kemptville and points in between. There are not too many areas that we have not worked in.
Know-How – What’s knowledge without the know-how to get the job done! With many years of combined experience, we know how to get your home sold or find the right house for you!
Experience – Mindi (1987) and Irwin (1992) bring you many years of full time real estate experience. In their careers, they have seen it all and know the right way to handle any situation. They have both had other successful careers in the past. Irwin has managed several retail store locations for a local Ottawa grocery chain and owned his own retail business. Mindi has been an assistant to two Members of Parliament and has been a legal secretary in a large well-known Ottawa firm.

Roots – We have lived in Ottawa since 1974 and in the Barrhaven neighbourhood since 1989. When Mindi started her real estate career in 1987, the first neighbourhood she cultivated was a small bedroom community with four or five small strip shopping malls, four schools and almost no restaurants or major shopping. But it was a safe and upcoming community. We fell in love with it and moved our young family, our two daughters Robin, then seven years old and Leah, then two, into their new home.
Community – That was Barrhaven back then. We have watched this community explode with activity. Today, with a population approaching 75,000, you can have anything from fast food hamburgers to fine dining Italian food. There is shopping galore and the plans for the future are wonderful. There are bountiful medical services including walk-in clinics, dentists, eye specialists and more. And schools! You’ll find full French schools, Separate Board, Public Board, elementary, middle and high schools.
Surrounding Areas – We are by no way limited to the Barrhaven area. With such vast experience we have listed homes and helped buyers buy homes throughout the Ottawa area. Kanata, Orleans, Richmond, Kemptville, Greely and as far away as Castleman are some of the areas we have developed a good understanding and knowledge of.
Understanding – Having owned several homes of our own, we know the stresses of buying and selling real estate FIRST HAND! That’s why we have always had the philosophy that we will treat each client as we would like to be treated. It’s the guiding principal behind what we do!
Service – Personal team service! You won’t be put through the real estate express lane. We and the dedicated Royal LePage office and administrative staff will provide that personal touch. When selling, we offer extensive advertising of your home in print, Internet and through our network. Our full screen 360° virtual tours with professionally taken photos are available on several real estate websites including this one! We offer service and products you just cannot be without in today’s real estate market.
When buying, you have our years of experience and knowledge to guide you along the sometimes tricky path of real estate. Knowing the market values, preparing a solid well written offer to purchase and making sure you understand every step of the buying process is what we do best. We offer instant notification via email that will let you know as soon as the home you are looking for is available and on the market. It’s fast and it’s easy!
Military and RCMP relocations in one of the areas we excel in. Over our careers, we have helped numerous members of our military and RCMP relocate to Ottawa and help many others to relocate out of Ottawa. The members of these organizations have very special needs and we are there to provide them with the top quality service during their extremely time sensitive and stressful period.
