An Introduction

By Robert Hof

Welcome to my blog!

I intend to use this space to publish articles and items of interests concerning real estate, primarily, but not exclusively, focussing on condominiums in Ottawa. I invite you to check in from time to time to see what’s new and relevant in the fast-paced and ever-changing world of real estate.

After almost 40 years selling homes in Ottawa, I have seen enormous changes in the real estate market itself and the process of buying and selling a home has changed radically too with many more safeguards for the public. The city has changed greatly and I can remember when condominiums were a foreign concept to the Ottawa buyer, regarded almost with suspicion. Now condos represent a significant segment of the market as a whole, attracting both first-time buyers, professionals and empty-nesters. There is a condo for every budget and although many new condominiums are in the works, there is no slackening in demand.

If you wish to know more about new condos that are planned or under construction, visit my macro-website at
