Making your house a home!


Hi folks.

Welcome to my website. Not a fancy one. Pretty basic. Just to introduce myself, offer you a few options and provide an easy way to contact me. Real estate is a relationship business. It is not a transactional business. I need to get to know you and you need to get to know me. What better way than to talk. So give me a call or fill in the contact form and I will call you. Whatever you need to know about real estate sales, how to go about buying or selling, or investing, or just to discuss real estate in the Ottawa market. Give me a call.

Who Am I?

My name is Bill Switzer and I am a proud native of Ottawa. I attended Lisgar Collegiate High school and went to Carleton University and graduated with a degree in Engineering (Civil).  My wife and I chose Kanata to raise our family. I have lived in Kanata for the past 37 years  (previously Nepean and centre town Ottawa) and I am very familiar and knowledgeable about not only the west end areas, but of the greater Ottawa region.

I am the proud father of three children, all of whom have also decided to raise their families in west end Ottawa. I have two sons and one daughter and together, they have blessed my wife and I with seven grandchildren. When our children were young, I was a Beaver, Cub and Scout leader. Later, when my son played soccer, I was a soccer coach, convener and registrar. Today I am a member of the Kanata Hazeldean Lions Club and have held executive and non-executive positions in the organization. My specific projects in the Club are the Kanata Holiday Santa Claus Parade and our annual Winter Festival pancake breakfast.

I have over 30 years of customer service experience to bring to my third career—Real Estate. I had a very successful career in the Public Service working for the province of Alberta and the Federal Government. My second career was in Ottawa’s Hi Tech community. I worked for Bell Northern Research, followed by Nortel Networks and finally a computer services company, Computer Sciences Corporation. When the painful death of Nortel, I decided to pursue a career that would allow me to utilize the skills developed leading scores of people, managing and negotiating large dollar value agreements and providing excellence in customer service. I choose to be a Realtor®. I choose to help people with one of the most important financial decisions of their lifetime—buying or selling a property.


Why Bill? I have had a long and successful career managing and leading large organizations which requires significant trust, integrity and service excellence built upon a clear understanding of clients’ needs. I bring these attributes to the table when I come to help you meet your real estate goals. Whether you are selling, buying, or are doing both, I am here to help. Experience in dealing with large contracts and negotiating a “win win” has been a part of my culture. Let me use that experience to your advantage as your partner in Real Estate.

Whatever your real estate needs are, I can help you.  I have extensive knowledge of the area and the services including shops, schools, medical, dental and clubs and organizations. I provide service that you can trust and bring my knowledge to help you make this exciting journey a happy and successful experince. I am here to help you find your house so you can make it a home.

Whether buying or selling, I can help. Contact me today for your FREE home evaluation.
