My name is Erin and I am your local REALTOR®.
I was born and raised in Ottawa. I was just a teenager when I started working in a RE/MAX office in 1997, and I was immediately hooked!
My passion for real estate and my insatiable desire for excellence translates into an ability to get my clients the very best possible outcome. Whether you are buying, selling or both, you can be sure that nothing will be left to chance.
I have invested heavily in achieving excellence in real estate by earning several important designations, attending many high-level learning opportunities, hiring the best consultants available, and leveraging my extensive experience so that I can serve my clients better.
Master Certified Negotiation Expert® (MCNE®)
The MCNE® designation is the most sought after professional designation in Real Estate. This means I am the best-trained REALTOR® to help meet your needs. I am trained in advanced negotiating tactics and approaches. Negotiation skills are fundamental to any successful transaction, and I create better outcomes for my clients with my sharp skills which will give you a significant competitive advantage in the Ottawa real estate market.
One of my favorite quotes is: “ Negotiation is the art of letting other people have your way”.
Seller's Residential Specialist® (SRS®)
The SRS designation is a professional credential recognized by the National Association of REALTORS®. I am a trained seller client advocate who knows the importance of your specific needs and is uniquely qualified to exceed your expectations. I am extensively trained in a variety of marketing methods to uniquely promote your property to the widest range of prospective buyers and will concentrate my efforts on your ultimate goals to ensure you are the center of the transaction. Also, I have a deep understanding on how to collaborate with a variety of cooperating agents of all skill levels will ensure you get the best buyer.
An SRS adheres to the highest level of professional ethics and business practices in delivering 'client level' services with integrity.
Senior's Real Estate Specialist® (SRES®)
Earning the SRES® means I have the necessary knowledge and expertise to counsel all clients, including those 50+, through major financial and lifestyle transitions in relocating, refinancing, or selling the family home.
Even if you are not in this age group, my skills may help us buy from or sell to someone who is 50+. This is a large demographic and understanding their unique needs is essential.
Retreat to the Wilderness of BC with Top Industry Thinkers
Each summer I attend a professional development retreat with some of the best minds in the industry. This is a five-to-nine day intense learning experience sharing best practices to serve our clients at the highest professional level possible. Master minding with other like-minded professional REALTORS® is invaluable.
I work closely with several advisers. One is Suze Cumming whose experience facilitating excellence in REALTORS® across Canada is legendary. With over three decades of experience in the business and a close working relationship with many of top agents across the country, she makes a valuable mentor to me in solving unique problems, negotiating tricky transactions and adapting to the changing market here in Ottawa.
In addition, I work closely with the best mortgage brokers, real estate lawyers, inspectors, and other important partners involved in the real estate transaction.
When I’m not in the midst of collaborative negotiations or taking care of my family, I’m likely enjoying time with friends, volunteering, serving on the parent council at my daughters’ school, enjoying a strong cup of coffee, or training for my next bodybuilding figure competition. In addition, I enjoy wilderness adventures, travel, and attending my daughter’s Ringette games and tournaments with the Nepean Raven’s.
This fast-paced industry is the perfect match for my ambitious and outgoing personality. The complexities and fast-paced nature of real estate can seem intimidating to some and having a competent and confident guide will make the process understandable, comfortable, enjoyable and successful. I am here for you!
Do not hesitate to contact me whether you're just getting started and are in no rush, or are ready to make a move now. I would welcome a conversation about how we could work together to sell your home and get outstanding results for you. I will always put forth my best effort on your behalf!
Experience counts. Credentials matter.
