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.
