Patti Vaisanen changes Careers - Joins CENTURY 21 John DeVries Ltd.


Patti Vaisanen - Sales Representative



Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.


- Harriet Tubman


I don’t necessarily want to change the world, but over the past year I have begun the process of self development, and to that end my world is changing.

Since my first daughter was born, I made a decision to make a career change that would allow me to be at home and support my family. Now my family is at a point where I am making another change in my life. I am re-entering the workforce in an exciting career of Real Estate.


I am a devoted and driven individual, who works hard, and plays harder.  I enjoy spending time with people and take pleasure in spending time with those close to me. I am very personable and can relate well with others. I am respectful and highly loyal, two traits that I value greatly. I can be depended upon and take my responsibilities seriously, and will work hard to accomplish goals. 


I have a wonderful and supportive family consisting of my husband Len, and two daughters, Isobel and Emma. We enjoy spending time outdoors at the family cottage, or camping.  I enjoy playing softball and have played on a few teams around the city. My children are involved in a variety of sports and activities which keep us all busy. We are involved in karate and competitive Highland Dancing. Finding that balance of work, family, and personal time is always an enjoyable challenge.  Although we are a very busy family I thoroughly enjoy spending time with them, no matter what we are doing.


I attended Carleton University and also have a diploma from Algonquin College. Recently I completely my courses at OREA. Early on in my professional life my main focus was on teaching, and early childhood development. After that, my career focus changed, and I began working from home running my own business. I started to develop an interest in sales and while running my own business I began working as a sales consultant part time. Also, I have always held an affection of real estate and have had the pleasure of acquiring several properties. Over the years I have enjoyed working with real estate agents in the purchases of our properties. At the same time I feel that I have a keen eye for design, and thoroughly enjoy making my design visions come to life.


Entering the world of Real Estate was an obvious transition for me. It allows me to combine my passion for design, interest in the real estate market, and experience in sales. Hopefully I can use these skills to help my clients, and provide for them the greatest service and experience when buying or selling their properties.


How I chose CENTURY 21 John DeVries Ltd., I know several real estate agents in the Ottawa area, and they have all been supportive of me. It was a difficult decision on what team to join and what direction to take with my real estate career. In order for me to be successful I wanted to find an office where I could be myself, and have the professional support to allow me to realize my full potential. I feel strongly that working as part of the CENTURY 21 John Devries team will allow me to accomplish this. I would like to think that I can pass this directly to my clients and help them to feel comfortable, relaxed, and at the same time supported in the most professional manner.

We at CENTURY 21 John DeVries Ltd are confident that Patti will be a huge success in real estate and encourage you to contact her through her website or at 613-836-2570.
