I specialize in helping first time buyers get into the real estate market.

For investors I search out properties buy which can easily be rented.
For the handy man I find a property which can be fixed up and resold.
For those families being relocated, transferred to our great city, I take time to explain the different areas of the city and show houses in the desired price range till the right one is found.
I try to keep the neighbourhood in which I live look its best by always picking up paper, bottles, cans and other items that people just seem to discard on my lawn, or on my neighbours lawn or on the street.
I attend a church and help by visiting some of its members on a regular basis, especially if they can not get out much, due to health reasons. Also get together with quite a few members who are good friends for Christmas and New Years parties.

I was born in the Netherlands.
At the age of 10, I and my family moved to Red Deer, Alberta, Canada.
After 5 years in Alberta, we moved again, this time to Trenton, Ontario, Canada.
Three years later I left home to go to college in Grand Rapids Michigan, where I studied and obtained my Bachelor of Science degree, and began my career as a Med Tech.
Seven years later moved with husband John Kralt to London Ontario. There I worked at my career as a lab tech in the veterns hopital.
The next move was to Ottawa Ontario, where my husband pursued his career as a demographer in the federal government and I became a licenced real estate representative.
In this fair city we raised our two sons and continue to enjoy our life in Ottawa with friends and children surrounding us.
The children are now grown up but we are close knit and visit back and forth whenever we can
My education began in the Netherlands and continued in Canada the country to which my family immigrated in 1955. After high school I was off to Grand Rapids Michigan in the USA, to attend Calvin College. Here I received my Bachelor of Science degree. I joined the labour force as a Medical Technologist (lab tech). This career I pursued for the next 6 years. By now I had married and moved back to Canada. In the early 1970s my husband John Kralt and I moved to Ottawa ON. where my husband got a job with the federal government and I stayed home with our young children. In 1980 I went back to work, this time as a Real Estate Sales Representative, and the rest as they say is history. I am still enjoying this career and have seen it all, high and low interest rates, property price increases and price decreases. So no matter the real estate market conditions I am here to help you.
I enjoy reading books in my field of real estate.
I take seminars and courses to upgrade my real estate knowledge.
