More About the Professional:
I'm Eric, an Ottawa gay Realtor. My partner Steve Langlois and I have been together since 1979. We both worked in the high tech field for many years and in our spare time we bought, moved into, and fixed up many houses and condos. We also developed real estate web software and websites for many realtors.
Because we had so much interest in the real estate field, I decided to get my real estate license in 2005 and joined the excellent firm of Royal Lepage Performance Realty. Within the first year I was doing it full time and moved away from the high tech field. Two years later Steve also got his licence to be able to join me in the business. We've been working as a team ever since and loving it.
It has been a great pleasure to assist so many great people with the most significant financial transactions that most will make, and we're happy to be able to leverage our contacts and high-tech backgrounds to achieve superior results.
Our expertise and procedures result in our sellers consistently selling for a higher percentage of asking price and in less time than the average in the Ottawa market.
In addition to being awarded the Royal LePage Lifetime Award of Excellence, I have received recognition for being in the top 3% of Royal LePage agents in the Ottawa market.
I am a member of many professional organizations including the Ottawa Real Estate Board (OREB), the Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA) and the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA), plus the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and NAGLREP, the National Association of Gay and Lesbian Real Estate Professionals.
These contacts, ideas, and resources are invaluable for me to provide excellent service to both my Seller and Buyer clients. They are also useful in building referral contacts for clients transferring cities.
Our tech knowledge has proven very useful for creating and managing our own websites to ensure that the properties we sell for clients appear prominently in the search engines. I also continue to support several other websites for friends and non-profits, including a site I created years ago when my mother moved to town. All of my real estate listings are automatically displayed on that site in addition to my real estate site, giving them that much more exposure, which results in all listings showing high up in Google.
Being involved with the seniors site has also given me the means to build up a network of complementary services that I can direct to those who need them, particularly when it comes to downsizing.
While having the web knowledge certainly helps when it comes to marketing properties in today's fast-paced market, it's really the personal service and interaction that's the more rewarding part of this business. If I can be of any assistance to you in planning your next real estate transaction, or answer any questions for you, please give me a call today!
