Irina is not just your average real estate agent… She is a home-selling machine. Irina’s clients love her enthusiasm for the business, prompt service, and expertise in the field.
Originally from Siberia, Irina moved to Ottawa when she was 14 years old and immediately fell in love with the city. Ottawa offers an exciting and always-evolving market; being a part of its development, as well as her passion for client care, is what inspired Irina to become a real estate professional.
While real estate is Irina’s main focus, there is another passion in her life – she is a member of a 7-piece Motown band, The Hornettes, and has been playing shows in Ottawa for many years, including the Ottawa Bluesfest and Jazzfest.
“My philosophy is simple: to always keep my clients’ best interests at heart and to use my professional knowledge of the real estate market to ensure their success.” – Irina
Bruce grew up in farming country just outside of Ottawa, which allowed him to enjoy the sense of security and freedom that comes with living in a small community while also being able to experience all that the city had to offer. Later in his twenties as a musician, Bruce toured with his band and recorded in a variety of cities in North America, however, eventually Bruce grew weary of the nomadic lifestyle on a tour bus and came to realize the value in being part of a greater community that fosters a feeling of home.
Where you choose to live allows you the opportunity to nurture everything that is important in life: family, friends, pets, love, self-expression, and life’s trials and tribulations; it’s all cradled and grown within a home. Bruce understands the importance of finding a place to cultivate that feeling. As your real estate agent, he will be a steady hand and voice of advice, advocacy, and reason when helping you list or find your home.
