Hello! My name is Michel Brissette. I am originally from the Timmins area, but made Ottawa my home 23 years ago . I am a proud Dad & Grandpa! I have 4 wonderful children and 2 adorable grandchildren, as well as a supportive, extended family with my amazing girlfriend.

I have been selling homes since the age of 23 and I love what I do! I am a real people person and I enjoy helping others. I like to bring a positive influence and energy into the lives of everyone that I meet.

Buying a home can be exciting and nerve racking at the same time. I’m here to help make my clients real estate experience as stress-free as possible. I work hard to find the right home, secure that purchase and guide my home buyers through all the steps along the way. My satisfaction comes from the smile on my clients’ faces.

Selling a home is often an exciting venture, especially in this market. My reward is seeing that satisfaction after I help them get the best price for their home. There are times when selling a home is emotional for the seller, for example, a loss of a family member, a divorce, financial hardships, or selling for health reasons. In those instances, I do my best for everyone involved to help them get through the process as painlessly as possible. I provide recommendations, backed up by facts. I remain professional and focus on getting the best results. I am here to help – a trusted, neutral advocate. My satisfaction comes from doing the best for my home sellers, with their best interests at heart, and them being excited that they chose the right REALTOR® to represent them.

Bottom line, no matter what the situation, I like making others happy and making the best of the situation. I am very optimistic and positive.

Being involved in over 1,500 real estate transactions to date, I have the knowledge and the negotiating experience to give my clients that edge.

My real estate team has grown! My son, Nicholas, has joined my team (I am a proud Dad). My Client Care Specialist, Sandi, supports the clients and the team. Together, if you choose us, we’ll ensure that you have the best real estate experience possible. When you call me to work with you, the care and experience of my whole team is there for you.

Before choosing anyone, please let me show you what I do to get results that you will be proud of. With that information, you will be equipped to compare what others have to offer so that you can make an informed decision.

Call me today and let’s chat!

Nicholas Brissette

Sales Representative

I am all about the team and I am committed to go above and beyond to satisfy my clients!  Watching my father’s drive to help his clients and his incredible success in real estate, I know that the heart of a real estate transaction is the relationship formed between clients and their REALTOR®.  This level of commitment is my guide post in all that I do.

The drive I had during my time as a competitive hockey goalie, high level performance track running and competitive soccer player is the same level of commitment and teamwork that I bring to my clients. 

I have continued this love of sport and fitness which I believe, brings good health and positivity to my life and the work that I do in real estate.

Working on finding the right home for my Buyers and Selling my client’s home is definitely a ‘Team Sport’. It takes trust, commitment and great guidance so that the scoreboard shows in your favour.

I’m ready to join your team, call me or book a Zoom appointment to talk about your goals and let’s ‘team up’ to make them come true.
