Chantal Gobeil

Real Estate Broker

I am a native of the beautiful Abitibi region and more precisely of the city of Amos. I left this region young enough to study (Quebec City and Ottawa). I came to Montreal to accompany my then spouse who had a position in the city. My studies in criminology led me to work for a few years in a transitional environment before returning to university to study law and then my real estate broker course.

I had dreamed of working in the real estate industry since I was a child, but it seemed inconceivable to my parents who have always highly valued university studies. In the 2000s, I finally decided to dive in and devote myself fully to working in the real estate sector. I thought that if this job wasn’t for me, my cats and I would still eat and at least I would know for sure. I’ve been in the business for 18 years now and I love it!

Over the years, I have also been very involved in various committees set up by the Greater Montréal Real Estate Board (GMREB), always with the desire to improve the professionalism of my peers and help change people’s perception of our profession. For me, a good broker stands out for its skills and reliability. No wrong promises, the broker must be efficient and meet the needs of his clients.

What I like about my work is my freedom of action. Even though I often work 7 days a week, I really appreciate being able to free myself for meals with friends and keep some time to relax and recharge my batteries. My neighbourhood, the Shop Angus, is in the heart of the big city, but it reminds me a lot of the suburbs. I am within walking distance of the Joliette, Pie IX and Préfontaine subways, as well as Masson Street with its restaurants, bars and other service businesses, not to mention the many parks and green spaces, which are worth gold in Montreal. A walk of about 15 minutes also allows me to find myself at Parc Maisonneuve or the sublime Botanical Garden.
