Andrée Carbonneau

Residential Real Estate Broker

I grew up in the Mauricie region, studied in Quebec City and Sherbrooke, before moving to Montreal. I love Montreal for its neighborhood life. I live in Villeray and I appreciate its conviviality. There are people of all ages and backgrounds, quality shops nearby, magnificent green spaces (my favorite; Jarry Park, in all seasons), the ease of travel and the richness of the cultural offer.

My initial training led me to translate for various government departments in Ottawa and then in Montreal as a freelancer for private companies in the manufacturing and banking sectors. After moving to Europe, I became a French teacher for new families who were seeking integration. What I loved above all was helping people feel good about themselves in their new environment. Meeting clients is therefore my favorite part of the job: defining needs and implementing a strategy for success.

In 1997, we took an opportunity in my spouse’s career and moved with the children to live abroad. Switzerland, Luxembourg, Turkey, all of which have been extraordinary and incredibly rewarding experiences. The frequent moves made me appreciate the cultural diversity, of course, but also the diversity of the houses and the architecture. From this emerged a genuine passion for homes and people from all horizons. In preparation for our return to Montreal, it seemed obvious to me to follow a real estate brooking course to put my passions to good use and thus accompany buyers and sellers in the realization of their real estate project. I am a person who listens closely to the needs of my clients, honest and hardworking. It is essential that a good broker be attentive to his clients, that he is honest and have a lot of expertise.

In my spare time, I like to go for a walk in one of Montreal’s magnificent parks or neighborhoods with my spouse or my dog. I also simply enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends over a good meal.
