If you’re in the process of a military relocation, corporate relocation or simply relocating to Ottawa, you’ve come to the right place.
Transferring to a new location is never easy no matter how many times you’ve done it and I should know. Growing up in a military family I have lived through the multiple moves and the stress it causes a family. My goal is to help you and your family deal with all aspects of your move, in order to make it a smooth and easy transition. As a member of the Integrated Relocation Program (IRP), I work with certified Brookfield Relocation specialists which include lawyers, financial lenders and home inspectors that are familiar with the program.
Brookfield Global Relocation Services (BGRS)
The Integrated Relocation Program (IRP) is administered by Brookfield Global Relocation Services (BGRS). It’s a unique program that provides government entities, which include the Government of Canada, the Canadian Forces and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police with increased flexibility and assistance to relocate their employees to their new work locations.
As a registered service supplier with BGRS my objective is to provide you with the best service and a successful house-hunting trip!
The House Hunting Trip
Once you have received your posting, you will be entitled to a House Hunting Trip (HHT). This usually includes up to 5 days and nights in the location you’re moving to, for both you and your spouse. You will be expected to use only approved suppliers for services such as real estate agents, lawyers, house inspectors etc. as these expenses are billed directly to the relocation company. There may be circumstances where you may have to pay for some inspections yourself like water testing, well and septic systems and then put in a request for reimbursement.
There will be a minimum amount of time to house search so getting prepared early is critical. You will need to contact me with all the information of what you and your family are looking for to start the process. Together we will view a list of homes and when you’ve decided I’ll help you negotiate the offer of Purchase and Sale and assist you until closing.
