Lisa has had the privilege of calling Ottawa home for more than ten years. She first came to the capital to pursue an Honours BA in Psychology at the University of Ottawa and very quickly made a home for herself here. She especially loves the city for its cultural diversity; easy access to the beautiful Gatineau Hills; the burgeoning culinary scene; the abundance of green space and stunning architecture; and most of all, the real sense of community that comes from living in a smaller city.

Lisa is passionate about working with people, listening to their stories, and finding ways she can help. And what better way to help than to find someone their dream home where they can happily envision starting a family, growing a home business, or perhaps retiring. Lisa’s strength lies in understanding how emotional of a process it can be to buy your first home, or relocate to a new one. A fresh start can certainly be exciting, but change can also be met with unexpected emotions. Lisa is confident that she can guide you through that process in a delicate yet professional manner. It is a truly gratifying feeling to come home to space you enjoy and Lisa looks forward to helping you achieve that.
