Dedication, Knowledge & Integrity: a Refreshing Approach to Real Estate
Born and raised in central Ottawa, Hugh has an in-depth knowledge and love for the city and its surrounding areas, and a keen understanding of the intricacies of each community that, collectively, make up the nation’s capital.
Hugh’s approach to real estate is simple: the client’s interests are paramount. His success is based on client satisfaction; satisfaction achieved through listening to a client’s needs, straightforward and effective communication, an unwavering commitment to honesty and integrity, and the know-how to proficiently navigate real estate transactions while keeping the client’s best interests the top priority.
His personable and patient demeanour is coupled with a professional and strategic approach to creating successful relationships with sellers, buyers, developers and peers. This approach has allowed Hugh to market and sell real estate within a wide range of prices and locations, as well as the ability to locate homes across the city that are seen as hidden gems. He thrives on getting to know his clients on a personal as well as business level, making the process of selling or buying a smooth and enjoyable one, whether it be residential, condominium, or investment properties
Before starting his career in real estate, Hugh completed a Bachelor’s Degree in Geology at Dalhousie University, and worked in the geological field in Nova Scotia. He also taught English overseas before returning home to pursue his passion; real estate, home construction and helping people in both those areas.
While obtaining his real estate license and education, Hugh worked with a local construction contracting company in Ottawa, building new homes and additions, as well as renovations. This allowed him to gain a firm understanding of the signs and value of quality craftsmanship, the associated costs of such work, and establishing a network of reliable and skilled tradesmen. This has given Hugh the expertise to see the inherent value in homes and what takes to bring a home to its full potential.
Hugh traded his work-belt for the modern tools of the real estate profession. Integrating all avenues of social media, marketing and branding, digital photography and video, he ensures that listings are given the maximum exposure to the market. This blend of abilities and depth of knowledge have set him apart, whether selling, buying or renting properties in the nation’s capital.
