My chief objective is to prioritize and safeguard your interests in the home buying and selling process.


Real estate is a perfect fit for me. I love homes, both old and new, and I understand the diverse needs of my clients, whether in buying your first home, listing your home for sale, downsizing or acquiring an investment property.


Listening to the views of my clients is important to me. I understand that buying or selling a home can be a stressful experience and I aim to put your mind at ease by answering your questions and tailoring your home purchase or sale in a way which is responsive to your individual needs.


My energy and enthusiasm for all things real estate fuel my passion and desire to be an advocate for my clients.  I value my honesty and integrity in acting for you above all else as, for me, working in real estate is about building lasting relationships with my clients founded on exemplary customer service.


I also understand the importance of community and neighbourhood and my approach to real estate strongly reflects these values.  I was born and raised in Ottawa and I am personally familiar with many of the city's fantastic neighbourhoods, including the local merchants, businesses and attractions that make Ottawa one of the best cities to live in Canada.


I grew up in Westboro and I now call Hintonburg home.  I have painstakingly restored two century homes and I am a great resource for home decorating and design and renovation ideas.


I look forward to personally meeting you and assisting you with all of your real estate needs.

We had the pleasure of working with Melanie for both the purchase and sale of our homes. We were searching for an older home in a sought-after neighbourhood and she was incredibly helpful throughout the entire process. Her experience with home renovations and extensive knowledge of the neighbourhood was invaluable. When it came to making an offer we felt supported and knew our best interest was top of mind.

After purchasing our new home Melanie was able to get our current home listed for sale very quickly. She was critical in negotiating and ensured we got the best possible offer. We were very pleased with the outcome. If you’re looking for trusted partner in your home search and/or sale I highly recommend working with Melanie.

Melanie helped my wife and me purchase our home in Ottawa. She made the whole home-buying process seamless, and her extensive knowledge of the Ottawa market was extremely helpful. She was wonderful to work with, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Melanie was helpful beyond what I could have expected. She took care of all aspects of the sale of my house during a time (Covid) that requires extra steps, care and attention. She offered sound advice and was comunicative throughout the process. The listing looked great and the response just as much so. Most importantly, she sold the house in no time at all. Couldn't offer a higher recommendation.

Our experience with Melanie was nothing short of amazing. My fiance and I were referred to Melanie through a work colleague who made the move from Toronto to Ottawa just like us, and her experience was exactly like ours...flawless. Melanie's level of professionalism, attention to detail, patience, and genuine care for our first home was above and beyond what was anticipating. Especially with everything happening with COVID, and our lack of knowledge with the process and the distance. She really showed she cared and did everything she could to accommodate us.

We found our first dream house all because of her and we could not be more thankful and happy about everything she's done. There aren't enough stars to give, but I would strongly recommend Melanie for those looking for a new home. Especially Torontonians like ourselves who are considering making Ottawa their new home. Thank you so much, Melanie :)

Melanie helped us buy our first home and we couldn't have asked for a better real-estate agent to guide us through the process. She was honest and upfront about her assessments of a property's value, and she never made us feel pressured to make a decision. She took us to visit over 20 homes (we were really picky) so her patience is commendable! And she's lightning-fast at answering texts, phone calls, and emails. Highly recommend her services!
