Andrea Pierce, MBA
Executive Director at Carleton University Entrepreneurship Hub
I highly recommend John Castle, he is a person of integrity and has a long term view of the client relationship. He has deep knowledge of Ottawa’s real estate market.
I’m a graduate of Carleton University and of the Certified Management Accounts (now CPA) Accelerated Program. I’ve worked in investment real estate in Ottawa since 2003.
I focus on the acquisition, and disposition, of, real estate investments, and development land, suitable for private investors and developers.
Generally, my clients are professionals, business owners, and developers who invest in, or develop, real estate in order to build enduring wealth for their families.
My practice is about long-term relationships. Each founded on trust – cultivated through actions and advice that evidence my adoption of the client’s interests as my own.
Leverage my professional network and my penchant for cold calling to find hidden opportunities.
See the financial performance of your prospective investment in high resolution. As an accountant by training, thorough and thoughtful financial modeling is second nature.
Beat the Crowd
Get on at the ground floor. From five years of mentoring with a notable planning consultant, I learned how to predict where developments are likely to congregate
Profit from a specialist’s insights. I know more about Ottawa’s investment properties because I work exclusively with the people who own and build them.
Take advantage of my deep professional network; penchant for cold calling; and proficiency with digital, and traditional, marketing to get more investors thinking about your property.
When a broker neglects leads you receive fewer offers and have fewer options to sell. That’s why I diligently track every lead and steadfastly maintain contact until I receive a definite no or a written offer.
I give you access to your property’s sales pipeline. Monitor progress: see leads in the pipe and how they’re progressing; check in on follow up activity and out-reach.
Want to sell off-market? I’ll personally reach out to the hundreds of qualified investors in my database to find you a buyer.
