Brenda MacDonald-Rowe, Broker

I LOVE MY JOB!! Hello, I'm Brenda MacDonald-Rowe, a Broker with Century 21 Explorer Realty in Carleton Place, Ontario. I moved to this quaint town in 1995 with my husband Ernie from the west end of Ottawa and have loved every minute of being part of this community. The small town living with easy access to the big city amenities is perfect for us.

I believe that feeling part of a community is achieved by giving back and the Lanark County offers many opportunities to volunteer through organizations and service clubs. I personally belong to the Rotary Club of Carleton Place and Mississippi Mills and I’m the president elect for the 2015 - 2016 term. We meet at Slackoni's Restaurant on Mill St. in Carleton Place every Monday night at 6 pm. Come check us out.

Along with Family, Work and Rotary I enjoy traveling - Belize is my favourite destination and Princess Cruises are my favourite mode of transportation. My hobbies (when I have the time) are reading, playing Scrabble & Maj Jong, dining with friends and watching movies.

I got my Real Estate license in 2000 and a few years later passed the Real Estate Brokers exam. Did I mention I LOVE MY JOB!! I truly enjoy helping the 1st time buyers to find that perfect starter home. Or the family that's grown and needs to a step-up to a house with more rooms and a bigger yard. Or that transfer that'€™s came through and it's time to move away. Or maybe a summer cottage fits into the budget. Or maybe it's time to get an investment property in the retirement portfolio. But wait, the kids are all grown and it's time to downsize and travel. That'€™s why I LOVE MY JOB!! Every situation is different and no two stories are the same. I get to help facilitate peoples wants, needs and dreams.

So if you or any of your family and friends are looking for an experienced Realtor® who gives value added service by listening to your story, advising on your direction, negotiating your path and facilitating your dream then I would love to be your referral source for real estate in Lanark County - Carleton Place, Perth, Smiths Falls, Lanark, Beckwith and West Ottawa.
