Selling Partner/Sales Representative
Lisa has over 12 years’ experience as a real estate agent, and is also real estate investor. She first earned her license in 2003, and since then has been keeping a watchful eye on the market for her clients, whether they are buying or selling. Whenever Paul can't host "Open House" on CFRA radio, Lisa provides her expertise to callers from all over the Ottawa area.
“As a landlord and investor myself, I know how to create a portfolio of investments within the real estate market, both as a future nest egg for building wealth, or just for having a place for my kids to move to.”
“The most satisfying deals are the ones that seemed like a challenge. Whether it was due to surprises found in inspection, last minute financing rectifications or knocking on neighbourhood doors to see if a that bungalow is for sale for my clients’ aging parents, being invested in the relationship with my clients and truly happy for their success makes for a rewarding experience.”
A Certified Negotiation Expert, Lisa says, “I love houses, and I love people, but most of all I love watching the deal come together, knowing that I ensured its success for my client.”
Why does she love working with the Paul Rushforth team? “This is a really progressive company, and I love the supportive environment here,” she says. “I have an admin team and a team of marketing experts helping me out so I can devote all of my time to watching the market and staying in touch with my clients.”
"The Rushforth Team, especially Lisa Boutilier, did a great job of selling our house. When a previous broker was unable to sell in 3 months, Lisa got the job done in 1 month! They are the best, and we highly recommend them."

"Our experience with Lisa was fantastic! She walked us through the process, answered all our (many!) questions and sold our house within 2 weeks- for more than what we had expected. Really, we couldn't have asked for more."

"Lisa is fantastic and very professional. Plus has a great sense of humor. Also was very responsive to our needs and gave a very fast turnaround time for questions and answers."

Family Life and Beyond
When she's not busy helping clients, Lisa loves spending time with her family.
“Life experiences have given me great insight to the celebrations and challenges that life brings to the table. As a mother of 4 grown children I have a deep understanding of the rituals of family life. I grasp the desire to create a home, as well as the cycle of empty nesting and downsizing, plus everything in between.”
Lisa has also learned a lot from her passion for travel. “I love exploring the small communities everywhere we go, and enjoying the lifestyle of the local residents,” she says. “But as wonderful as it is to explore, it also makes me appreciate what a wonderful community we have here in Ottawa. We have great pride of ownership in our homes overall, and take good care of them.”
Lisa is a strong supporter of all the Paul Rushforth charity events, always ready to give her personal time to ensure their success. As a mother, CHEO and the Food Bank are two of the causes that are the most important to her.
