Barb & Carole

Barb and Carole are licensed REALTORS® who love the city of Ottawa and can help you make the most out of it.


Our Story

Barb and Carole met for the first time at Graffiti’s restaurant in Kanata, connected through a mutual friend and colleague whom they had previously worked with. Over a charcuterie board, Barb and Carole got to know one another and both felt they would make a great team! Bonding over a shared love of food, wine, travel and real estate, they decided to meet again.

Over the next 5 years, the two women worked together in the real estate industry, with Carole as the lead agent and Barb as the operations manager. When Barb brought up the idea of becoming a licensed REALTOR® herself, Carole was thrilled! With the support of Carole, Barb obtained her license and began working as a licensed assistant for Carole.

Since they both truly felt they have been partners from the beginning, the idea of a partnership was never far from their mind, and in 2020, both women officialized it. Barb & Carole was born!

We have worked together for over a decade, bringing a passion for life to our role as REALTORS®. It has been said ‘love what you do and you will never have to work a day in your life’, and we love what we do! We bonded over a shared love of food, music, travel and art, and for our great city of Ottawa. We both bring our own strengths to the business, providing an ideal environment for every client’s unique needs. Between the two of us, we check off every box for you.
