About Michel

Guidance with your best interests at heart

My name is Michel Brissette.

I am an award-winning Ottawa real estate broker specializing in homes in Alta Vista, Old Ottawa South, Elmvale and the Glebe.

I have 30 years of expertise, and have overseen more than 1,500 purchases and sales throughout my career.

My goal is to provide personalized service to every single client I work with.

Most importantly, I take immense pride in ensuring my clients’ happiness.

About me

Real estate has always been in my blood.

I first entered the industry as a real estate salesperson in my early 20s, when I lived in Timmins, Ontario.

In my first two years of selling homes, I had saved enough money to purchase in partnership one of the very first Coldwell Banker real estate franchises in Canada.

By age 25, I was the top real estate salesperson for the city of Timmins based on number of transactions. (At times, I was making as many as one sale per day!)

Around that same time, I purchased a Century 21 franchise.

Twenty years ago, I made the move to Ottawa to pursue residential real estate in the nation’s capital.

Several awards and hundreds of transactions later, here we are today.

My approach to customer service

Attentive. Honest. Ethical. Go-getter.

These are the words my clients have kindly used to describe me.

Why? I believe it’s because I am consistently there for them.

I don’t take a pushy approach. Rather, I see my clients through every single step of their purchase or sale, ensuring the smoothest transaction possible so they can feel:

  • Confident,
  • Supported, and
  • Ecstatic with the results.

​In other words, my job is about providing expert guidance with your best interests at heart.

So let’s get started

If you are looking to sell or buy a residential property in Alta Vista, Old Ottawa South, Elmvale or the Glebe, contact me—and let’s talk about how I can get you the results you want.

I look forward to hearing from you!
