ABOUT YOUR TOTAL REAL ESTATE PACKAGE
Heath and Tammy enjoy living on the lake in this beautiful part of the country. Heath built their log home and they cherish every moment in it. They have a sugar shack on their property and the family is actively involved in making maple syrup during the spring season. During the rest of the year, they enjoy boating, swimming, fishing, and enjoying nature! Heath and Tammy enjoy working in cottage country and helping people with their real estate needs – whether it is selling their home or finding that special property. Their office in Westport is a busy place and tourists often stop in to see the large wall map showing the many lakes in the area.

Tammy attended Queen’s University and graduated with an Honours Bachelor of Science degree and Bachelor of Education before becoming a teacher with the Limestone District School Board. She joined Heath in real estate and became a licensed real estate agent in 2013. Heath’s background in the construction industry as a carpenter and as a Residential Appraiser gives him a wealth of knowledge to draw upon in the real estate industry.

“Heath and I have always enjoyed working together – in business and as a family. We enjoy helping people and feel that we each have different skills that are a compliment to each other, as well as, providing a caring and supportive relationship with our clients. As a teacher, my concern was always for the students and how to best support them. It is a natural progression for me to do the same for our clients. My experience as a teacher provides me with organizational skills and high standards of excellence in all aspects of negotiations. Heath and I provide honest advice and offer service you can always trust. “
“As an appraiser, I was in contact with banks and mortgage companies a great deal of the time as these agencies were my clients. Helping people had always been a part of my career and I missed this while working as an appraiser so I took the next step and became a licensed real estate agent. This is truly the best fit for me as I am now in the business of helping people in the housing industry. Whether it is helping a client find a home, build a home, or sell a home, Tammy and I are there for our clients every step of the way.”
Norman brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the team. Born and raised in Ottawa, he enjoyed a successful 33 year career in finance with the Federal Government. With retirement, came time for a second career – studying for and receiving his Real Estate Licence as a Sales Representative in 1999. Since he had purchased a cottage outside the Village of Westport on McNally’s Bay of the Upper Rideau Lake in 1968, he decided the Westport area would be a good spot to enjoy retirement and purchased a year round residence in 1991. Having lived in the area for close to 50 years and being a real estate agent for over 16 years, Norman offers extensive knowledge of the area and assistance in real estate transactions. He still keeps a hand in finance as Treasurer for the Rideau Pastoral Charge, the local Masonic Lodge, Eastern Star Chapter, and the Westport Food Bank.
