After half a decade in a successful career as an Economist with a National Association, Aly took the leap to follow his passion; Real Estate. Always having an interest in it he found that research and more specifically 'the numbers' came naturally to him. However, his real passion is in helping others make sound choices when it comes to achieving their personal and financial goals. Aly has also honed his negotiation skills as a Certified Negotiation Expert®. With every transaction he makes it a point to get to know his clients and their goals and to ensure they are met before the transaction is complete.
Born and raised in Hunt Club and residing in Alta Vista, Aly has a tremendous knowledge of the city and has been fortunate to work with a variety of buyers and sellers. With an affinity for learning Aly is constantly training both inside and outside the classroom in order to give his clients 'the edge' when it comes to their next transaction.
In his spare time Aly likes to stay fit by playing squash, tennis and working out. He also enjoys reading non-fiction and spending time with his wife, Heather.
Heather holds two degrees - Bachelor of Architecture History & Theory and Bachelor of Applied Arts - Interior Design, she started her design career in Calgary, Alberta, working for a custom design firm. Since returning to Ottawa in 2010, Heather has designed hundreds of homes as the Principle Designer for Campanale Homes, and is solely responsible for furnishing and decorating all model homes. She also creates unique and functional home restorations and renovations for private clients.
Her experience working with a local builder has not only built Heather's extensive design portfolio, but also an in depth knowledge of Ottawa real estate. It was a natural fit to team up with her husband Aly to provide his clients with her perspective when buying or selling a home. Heather's staging expertise helps to strike the perfect balance of a homelike feel without personalization. When buying she provides valuable input about how the home can be modified to suit individual needs, with anything from decoration tips to full scale renovations.
