Selling Partner/Sales Representative
Penny is one of the most knowledgeable and experienced real estate agents in the Ottawa area. Not only has she lived in the area her whole life, but she grew up in a family of real estate agents too.
Licensed since 2004, she’s equally at home with buyers, sellers, and investors. “I have an eye for up-and-coming neighbourhoods as well as excellent investment opportunities,” she says.
The fact that she sells 50 - 60 homes every year means she has more experience that some agents that only sell the usual 10 - 15.
“I love that my expertise enables me to help so many people,” she says. “But I couldn’t do it without the rest of the Paul Rushforth team. They not only share information with me, but they make sure I’m able to spend all my time taking care of my clients.”
A Personalized Approach
Penny loves that helping people find the perfect home is the focus of her day. “Because my kids are grown up now, I’m able to make time for my clients whenever they need me.”
She loves real estate just as much as she loves people, and is constantly honing her skills and knowledge. As a Certified Negotiations Expert, she’s better able to get the top price for her home sellers, and the bottom price for her buyers. “Very few people have that extra training,” she notes.
What’s her favourite thing about being a realtor? “Nothing beats the excitement on someone’s face when you help them find that dream home, whether it’s a chic little condo or a beautiful place in the suburbs.”
She enjoys helping first-time home buyers learn about the process. “It may be the biggest investment in their lives! Let’s make it count!” She is equally passionate about helping people downsize when their kids have left home. “We should really call it ‘right-sizing’,” she laughs, “Because who wants to take care of a giant place if you don’t need to?”
"We needed to sell our home quickly and Penny came to the rescue! Within the first week we had multiple showings and after one week on the market we were given an offer on our home and it sold! Thanks to Penny and all her hard work!"

"We were in a real time crunch to sell our property as well as find a new one. Our very busy lives meant that we had little time to see new properties and sell our own. Our agent Penny Kaszas was very diligent and was able to set up multiple showings for us all in the same day so we could make good use of our time. This led to us making an informed choice about what we really wanted in a home. From start to finish we were very well taken care of by the Paul Rushforth team. Our house was quickly sold and we had decided on a new one within three weeks."

It’s All About People
A true people person, Penny likes to spend time with her friends and family. Whenever she can, she gets away to her family’s’ summer cottage on Lake Muskoka. She also donates both her time and money to the Orléans-Cumberland Community Resource Centre whenever she can.
