“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.
