Coldwell Banker First Ottawa Realty, Brokerage

Who We Are

We may have the advantageous of an International Franchise Brand - but we are Seriously Local.

One of the few larger brokerages in the Ottawa area that remains a locally owned and operated business.  While some brokerages are now being run by out of town owners, our Executive and Management Team are all local business people with a combined 100+ years in the Ottawa real estate market. We have been in Ottawa for over 25 years now and you won't find us managing any offices outside the Ottawa and Eastern Ontario Region.  Why because this is home!

What does that mean to you?

It means we understand the uniqueness of the local Ottawa and area real estate markets and work closely with all our Realtors to provide experienced guidance and support to ensure you receive the best real estate support &  service in town.  It means that we have the backing, tools, services and relationships with Coldwell Banker offices from around the world.  No matter where you go, you will see a Coldwell Banker sign on lawns from Dubai to Indian to France to Vancouver and right here at home.

This is a People-centered business - why does that matter to you?

Our objective - to give you a real estate experience like no other.  We provide our clients with the full-service guidance and support that they need whe buying, selling or leasing a home or property.  Our agents are thoughtful, knowledgeable and understand their role in making your real estate experience the best it can be.   We never forget that real estate is a people-centered business where making connections and building strong, long-standing relationships with our clients and customers is our primarily objective.  It is about our clients needs, not our own.  

We are a new generation of Realtors...where technology is key

Years ago real estate was fundamentally the same, but nowadays we market very differently than we used to. The introduction of new technologies, the internet and social media have provided new avenues for Realtors to keep connected with their clients and use these technological tools to help market your home or property, and also find you your dream home. Technology is ever evolving and our agents stay at the top of their game to make sure they are using the best tools and resources at their disposal.

Wow Service

Everyone talks about service....but we are not afraid of putting in a little extra elbow grease. Our agents understand that buying or selling a home, investment property or leasing property are all important milestones and require extra attention.  Our agents recommend professional stagers, getting mortage pre-approval, providing market education for home buyers.  Our goal is to make the whole process more enjoyable and less stressful for our clients and customers.
