Richelle has a deep-rooted background in real estate that dates back to her childhood. Having both her parents as Realtors, Richelle grew to love the business from a young age.

Together they form The West Team and focus on residential real estate in the city of Ottawa and surrounding areas.

Richelle strongly believes in finding the right home or investment for her clients. Her ultimate goal with every client is to create a client for life.

Her ability to effectively communicate, work under pressure and deal tactfully with difficult situations has amounted to her early success as a Realtor.
