About Kathy Kontogiannis, BBA, REALTOR®, RYT

Born in Montreal to Greek immigrant parents, I have called Ottawa home since 1995. Over the years, my experience with customer service, negotiating and sales; covered several areas including retail management, banking, political liason and business owner. My parents taught me the value of working hard, never giving up on my dreams, and that anything is possible. With that entrepreneurial spirit, I started and operated 2 successful businesses in the health and wellness sector. It was during this time as a business owner that I realized how much I enjoyed being able to make a real and positive impact on people’s lives, whether it was my staff or my clients.

This passion for helping people is what led me to a career in Real Estate where my life and work experience compliment my desire to assist people in realizing their dreams of property ownership. I believe strongly that the acquisition of real estate, whether it’s buying or selling a home or investment property is truly life changing. A lot of people find it overwhelming to buy or sell a home, and this is where I come in. I am committed to making, what can be a stressful process, as seamless as possible for my clients. I enjoy working with different clientele, but I have a knack for and get great joy from helping first time home buyers.

I am married with three children and family is very important to me. I also believe strongly in paying it forward and have supported various charities including, Heart and Stroke, CHEO, CIBC Run for the Cure and The Ottawa Food Bank. I do aim to strike a work life balance as much as possible, so when not with clients, I have a passion for travelling, doing anything creative, and I am a certified Yoga Teacher. Life is simply too short, to not be doing what you love!
