Realtors are asked a lot for their opinions – opinions of property value, thoughts on neighbourhoods, schools, home inspectors, lawyers and so on.  And this week I was asked (by my assistant, who wants me to be the best realtor I can be etc etc) to put together a list of people I like and respect, a catalogue of tradespeople and service providers that buyers and sellers can refer to.

It’s not as easy as it sounds.  I feel as if I need to explain myself in some instances, add a little colour to the names and numbers. So here’s what I’ve got so far. I’ll add to this list regularly, and perhaps I’ll subtract from it too. Feel free to chime in and tell me I’m dead wrong, or I’ve missed someone, or even that you agree wholeheartedly. I hope the comments you add to this page can be a resource in themselves.

Okay, here we go. I’ll start with house-specific trades, I think. And again, this is not a complete list. These are the people who spring to mind. But please, jog my memory.


Buyers and sellers need good lawyers.  The following have all called me to discuss recent files. I think that’s as it should be. Selling real estate may not be rocket science, and the legal bits and pieces may be mostly routine, but it’s reassuring to know that someone else is paying close attention. You might be amazed how infrequently realtors actually get to talk to a client’s lawyer

Home Inspectors.

When I bought my own home, before I became a realtor, I didn’t know any better and hired a lousy inspector. “I can see where you’ve taken some shortcuts,” he said to the owner, who’d stuck around. “But Mr. Sinnett doesn’t need to know about those.”  I was flabbergasted, and ticked off. And there were several significant defects not detected during the inspection.

Alex Campbell of Acqspec has had a look at my place too. I’ll improve my home based on his smart suggestions. And I have several deals fall apart every year because Alex has uncovered defects that weren’t obvious at the time of offering. He’s at 613.546.0677

Mike Schur (613.544.2949) has lots of experience with old homes, like the ones in my neighbourhood. His dad was a respected inspector too. And Bruce Grier works for Mike these days, and is no slouch himself.


Mortgage Professionals

The Dominion Home Lending Team has office space in our building. My experience has been with Sean Binkley mostly, but you know, all the guys (why is it only guys?) seem dedicated and professional.



Pat Powers. I like the work I’ve seen of his. And I like the way he talks to clients. 613.453.5348

Mike Sheedy. is his website. Some lovely homes there.



Jim Malekos owns Fresh Start. He’s my next door neighbour and he works harder than I do. He’s at 613.329.7789

Susan Douthwaite is meticulous and damn good at what she does. Not cheap but sometimes you have to spend. 613.453.2792



Josh Daignealt has been working on and off in my house for a few months. Just small stuff mostly  - doors and windows, mud room pegboards and shelving – but I like his work a lot. He’s going to build us a bed too.  I have Josh’s cell. Contact me and I’ll put you in touch.



Rick Leduc of Leduc Electrical has been the go-to guy. His kids used to go to the same school as my kids and, well, you know how that works. But Rick has come through on short notice and I appreciate that. 613.561.9104

I’ve heard good things in  my neighbourhood about Wisdom Electric too. 613.545.1307
