I am not here to judge......I am here to help!" Gisèle is proud to have a team of 10 employees that allow her to assist more and more families every year, even during a pandemic. The past 2 years required a great deal of PPE, out-of-the-box thinking and ever-changing processes to keep everyone safe all while meeting our clients' needs and timelines. every project is customized, from home sale preparation, staging, floor plans, relocation management, clear-outs, and auction sales and more. Gisèle is very understanding of the challenges and feelings that everyone faces. Experiencing her own parents downsizing, home sale and relocation to Senior Community has allowed her to experience the process on a personal level. She is Winnipeg born and has lived in Ottawa since 2005. Her husband Kevin is a retired RCMP officer. They have 4 children, 6 grandchildren and Cocker Spaniel. Gisèle has had many volunteer experiences throughout her life. She has given back to her community and cities that she has lived in by volunteering her time, holding director positions at local community centres, cooking & feeding seniors in time of local disasters, Habitat for Humanity house builds and assisting newcomers to Ottawa and supporting the Barrhaven Food Cupboard.
