Nancy Benson Sales Representative
After finishing her university degree, Nancy began working for the federal government in Ottawa, designing exhibits and trade Fairs.

With a background in urban planning, construction and renovation, her vast experience and knowledge has allowed her to assist clients in envisioning potential renovations in their future home. When it comes to visualizing, Nancy has always had a knack for helping clients see the potential in their new space, whether it is a condominium, apartment or older home in one of the established neighborhoods throughout the city.
As a realtor with 30 years of experience, Nancy operates a full service office at RE/MAX Hallmark Realty Ottawa – “the largest single Realty office in the Ottawa-Carleton area.”
Nancy deals with a wide range of properties, and attributes her success to her ability for matching buyers with just the right property.

Nancy and her associates pride themselves on their marketing skills, using digital images for both print and web advertising.
