Avalon

As more businesses and people choose the east end of Ottawa to call home, Avalon is growing. But is it the right neighbourhood for you?

If you’re not familiar with the advantages of living in Avalon, we’ve got everything you need to know to make your decision.

Alta Vista

Do you want to live in a neighbourhood that’s never boring? Are you looking for a trendy atmosphere and beautiful houses? Hintonburg may be the place for you.

I’ve worked with both buyers and sellers in Hintonburg, and I’m excited to share with you what this neighbourhood has to offer.

The Glebe

I love the Glebe. I spend most weekends there eating, exploring, and shopping with my family.

So I thought: what better way to put my Glebe knowledge to use than to put it all down in a guide just for you?

Hintonburg

Do you want to live in a neighbourhood that’s never boring? Are you looking for a trendy atmosphere and beautiful houses? Hintonburg may be the place for you.

I’ve worked with both buyers and sellers in Hintonburg, and I’m excited to share with you what this neighbourhood has to offer.

Stittsville

In my opinion, Stittsville is the best of both worlds: set up as a suburban bedroom community, but easily within reach of amenities in Kanata and downtown Ottawa.

Barrhaven

For buyers of all budgets and family sizes, Barrhaven offers a lot of modern homes and great schools. It’s a bit spread out, so having a car really helps if you want to buy in this neighbourhood.

Kanata

When people talk about the Ottawa real estate market, they always talk about Ottawa as a whole. But within Ottawa, there are some neighbourhoods more in demand than others. Kanata is one of those neighbourhoods.

Wellington West

Wellington West is most definitely a trendy neighbourhood in the Ottawa West area, with its main amenities and resources located on Wellington Street.
