About Judy McKechnie

Real Estate Broker - Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist - Certified International Property Specialist

As a full time Real Estate Professional, and Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist, I pride myself on providing my Clients with the highest quality of service possible. My personal knowledge of the local real estate market comes from 18 years of experience. I have handled many dealings in the high end waterfront community as well as the luxury market in my area. To compliment and enhance my experience in the luxury market I have become a member of the Institute of Luxury Home Marketing Guild. Earning this designation has provided me with the education and tools required to effectively market your exclusive property to the right Buyers or find that perfect home that you are looking for.  Luxury comes in all sizes, and no matter what your preference is, I treat ALL my Clients with equal respect.  
I know the importance of staying current in my industry so I am committed to ongoing education and hold several designations that have contributed to my success as a Real Estate Professional.  My 22 years of experience as the Director of Marketing at one of the largest telecommunication companies in Canada has given me a strong foundation in marketing and business acumen.  I have approached my real estate career with the same vigor and commitment that I approached my corporate career.  I pride myself on my caring attitude and business savvy.
It thrills me when I have the opportunity to work with a new client.  I work tirelessly to ensure they know that they have chosen the right professional to help them with their journey.  It is also a true honour when past Clients call me again or refer me to their family, friends or business acquaintances.  There is no better feeling in the world!  I am committed to exceeding expectations for my clients!
I love what I do and nothing is more satisfying than knowing my Clients are thrilled with their real estate decisions.  I am committed to engaging in honest and ethical business practices. 
If you’re buying, I can enhance your search process by helping you uncover things you will want to consider in each area like schools, neighbourhood, demographics and the all-important return on investment. Using our property search tools, I will be able to find the home that best meets your needs. Finally, with my knowledge of the market, real estate expertise and negotiation skills, I’ll help you get the best possible price and handle all of the critical details.

If you’re selling, I will educate you on all market factors that may influence price, preparation and the promotion of your property in order to ensure success. I will then present you with a customized marketing plan using state-of-the-art technology and networking tools that will be designed to reach buyers both locally and internationally. I am also a Certified International Property Specialist. This places me amongst 4,000 elite real estate professionals in over 45 countries.   The designation was awarded to me by the National Association of REALTORS® for completing rigorous coursework devoted to learning international real estate practices and demonstrating proficiency in international business.
The CIPS designation is synonymous with advanced expertise, a global perspective, and a distinct understanding of a global buyer. As a designee, I have the knowledge and resources to efficiently work with international buyers, including Canadian residents looking to invest overseas, foreign buyers purchasing in Canada, as well as newcomers to Canada who might be unfamiliar with real estate transaction practices in Canada.  The network created within this community of CIPS designees has proven to be invaluable.  We get many overseas Buyers looking for vacation properties and investment opportunities.  It is yet another platform to advertise unique property opportunities.  I have access to colleagues that speak French, Mandarin, Russian and Arabic.  These realtors really help me when I need a translator.
Whether you are selling or looking to buy your dream home, your family cottage, or an investment property, I am dedicated to getting results.
