Our Process: Every Listing is Different
This is one of the key reasons that I never get bored! We sit down each week and review the market and how it relates to the sale of that particular house. While the process that many realtors have is to do a price-reduction of x% after 2 weeks on the market and X+% after 3 weeks and so on…..our approach, meaning myself and Barbara, is to assess the analytics and the market in that area each Monday. What do the numbers say? What does the feedback say? How do we address this? Then we implement a plan for that particular week for that particular property. This could include social media advertising, adjusting MLS information, agent tours, automatic confirmation days and more. That being said, we are consistently coming up with new marketing ideas to keep our marketing fresh, current and appealing!
Never hesitate to ask us if you have any questions about the selling process and the listing of your home.

VanKleek Hill is the Place to be for Events
VanKleek Hill is one of our favourite spots just outside of Ottawa Proper and one of the biggest reasons is the sense of community that is so apparent and the events that the community organizes together. Here are some of the upcoming ones we are really looking forward to:
Window on the Past – Taking place on July 29 at 10:00 am and July 30 at 6:00 pm, this event gives you the opportunity to relive the colonization period, the spirituality and the values of the half-bloods ancestral traditions. Take part in many activities, view exhibitions and taste delicious food!
The VanKleek Hill Fair – Beginning in about a month and running from August 17 to 20th, this traditional county fair offers all that you would expect and more…a midway, vendors, horse shows, petting farm and much more! On top of this there is loads of entertainment and a demolition derby. If you’re a fan of fairs be sure not to miss this one as it is one of the oldest agricultural fairs in the province!
Beau’s Oktoberfest – A great event to attend come the fall on September 22 and 23, people wait all year for this amazing event. This award winning event celebrates the delicious craft beer and food made at one of Ottawa’s most famous breweries. Grab your Lederhosen and drop in for a stein!
Why do we know so much about events happening in VanKleek Hill?? Because we have a beautiful listing just a minute outside of the town centre. It is a lovely Century home on 111 acres with stables, dressage ring, paddocks, hay barn, hay field and even an airplane landing strip. In fact…you can even walk from here to Beau’s for Oktoberfest…or just a nice lunch or dinner every day of the year! This is a wonderful opportunity to live in an area with a huge sense of community, an hour from Montreal and an hour from Ottawa but surrounded by so many amenities such as great restaurants, boutiques, schools, greenspace and more.
