Selling Partner/Sales Representative
Equally at home as a buyer’s agent and a listings agent, one of Alec’s best skills is his ability to listen. “Everyone client is different, so you have to listen in order to help them get what they need and achieve their goals.”
Born and raised in Ottawa, he knows the region inside and out, and he likes working with the great variety of people and homes available in the area. Alec is not only a licensed real estate agent, he is also an Accredited Buyer’s Representative.
Alec is patient and down to earth and is known for doing what it takes to help his clients. Being honest is very important to him. “I will tell you what you need to hear. I won’t exaggerate a potential selling price just to get a sale.”, he says.
“... We had an offer immediately. We sold our house almost before we realized what had happened and had an offer in and then accepted on the new house in a matter of days.
“ Alec did a great job of negotiating on our behalf getting more for ours than we had realistically anticipated and lowering the price on the new house to a price that was well within our comfort range and far below what the home owners had originally hoped for….”

“ In respect to my personal agent Alec Schneider, I appreciated his straight forward approach to answering my questions and providing advice where required. At every aspect of the selling process to closure of the sale of my house, Alec was there to guide me through the process and provide advice on how to close the deal. It was very much appreciated.”
- G. Klausmann, Ottawa
His previous experience as a Sales Manager with Saturn gave him a chance to work with a wide variety of people, learning how to provide great service - no matter what that means to each individual. “Saturn was a fixed-price seller, so we relied on our ability to provide great value for our customers to earn their business.”
His favourite thing about being a realtor with the Paul Rushforth team? “We all love to help people. That’s why we do what we do.”
Married with two boys, Alec’s home life is full, as they also have a dog, cats, and guinea pigs in the home. He loves to socialize with family and friends, especially when there’s a friendly card game of euchre or poker going on. He also loves the outdoors, particularly spending time with friends at their cottages and out on the water.
Alec has a soft spot for helping those who have no home of their own. On the cold winter days, he buys dozens of Tim Hortons gift cards and walks around giving them to the homeless. He also keeps lots of warm hats on hand in case anyone needs them. “Every night I get to come home to a full fridge and a warm bed. Not everyone has that.”
Alec and his wife also give to a variety of cancer charities.
