WELCOME! Thank you for visiting our site. 
We’d like to share a little bit about who we are….. 

As lifelong residents of Kitchener-Waterloo, we have both had the privilege of being raised and educated here and we consider ourselves fortunate to be able to raise our three children here as well. Our genuine love for people produces a passion and enthusiasm for helping our clients achieve their goals and dreams of home ownership. At the core of our strong business ethic are the fundamentals of hard work, honesty, integrity, and professionalism along with a friendly, positive, winning attitude. We enjoy meeting new people and strive to be good listeners as we identify the needs and wants of our clients so that we can then guide and direct by providing essential information through the real estate process. 

Our hope is that our clients will feel confident that they are making a wise, informed decision whether it be buying or selling a property. We work by referral and want to become your “realtors for life”. Our network of trusted professionals – lawyers, mortgage brokers, home inspectors, tradespeople – are there to assist with whatever needs you may have through the process. We have built many strong, long-lasting relationships and are highly respected in the area through years of service and putting other’s needs first. Tap into our vast knowledge of the Waterloo Region and surrounding areas by putting our sincere, down-to-earth, hardworking service to work for you! As a husband and wife team, we aim to not only meet your expectations but exceed them by bringing our individual strengths together so that you are getting two agents working diligently on your behalf! 

We are “the KEYES to your new home”!
