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."
- Leah, Ottawa, Mon May 18, 2015
"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.
What Lisa's Clients are Saying
Here are some reviews from just a few of Lisa's clients.
She made a potentially painful process of selling house and finding a rental place absolutely easy.
Mon Apr 10, 2017
My agent Lisa Boutilier was fully able to identify and meet my needs by being always responsive to any form of my communications (i.e. emails, texts, phone calls etc.) and constantly putting my benefits first when negotiating the offers as well as finding me an ideal rental property for me. She even took initiative to negotiate and lower the monthly rent for me. I greatly appreciate her service. She made a potentially painful process of selling house and finding a rental place absolutely easy.

Fantastic, 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. She also worked well on our behalf and advised on contractor, inspector, movers etc. My experience with Paul Rushforth has been very rewarding and I would recommend them (and have recommended them) to anyone I know buying or selling a home.

Our agent Lisa was phenomenal!! She explained everything very clearly at the beginning of the process and kept in constant contact with us throughout the process of selling our home.
