Ottawa is one of Canada’s fastest growing cities. As Realtors, it is increasingly difficult to be an expert in all the neighbourhoods of the city. As a result, many agents choose to specialize in specific communities where they feel connected, often where they live. The benefits of this specialization to any client is that the agent usually develops lasting relationships with community members and maintains an ongoing knowledge of the political, social, physical and economic features that affect this territory, including sales trends and potential listings.

To this end, Natalie and her team concentrate on working with buyers and sellers in Ottawa’s urban core. Having grown up in Old Ottawa South, attended Glebe High School, lived in Sandy Hill as well as having built two infill developments in the Golden Triangle and Centertown, Natalie knows her way around the inner City and has always been a fan and advocate of it.

We understand the schools and their programs, the community amenities and the fabric of each of these special places to live. Contact us to discuss YOUR community of choice!

Manor Park

A quaint east end neighbourhood, Manor Park has the luck of being isolated from its closest of neighbours, offering a rural feel in this city.

View Properties sold in this community!

This mature neighbourhood development dates back to the 1940s and is separated from its closest west-side neighbours, Rockcliffe Park, by McKay Lake and the National Cemetery of Canada, Beechwood Cemetery, separates Manor Park from its neighbours to the south, Vanier. At the edge of the community is the Ottawa River.

Living in Manor Park, you quickly will see this is a community that cares. An active community association advocates to the city for homeowners and the community council runs daily, weekly and monthly programs out of the local public school and field house. Programs include day care, after-school activities, summer camps, sports programing and exercise classes for the young and old.

Local shops and convenience stores are on the nearby street, St. Laurent Boulevard; as well as the Beechwood Avenue shopping district is only moments down the road.


Hot summer nights in this neighbourhood can be enjoyed with an ice cream from the local Dairy Queen and a walk over to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Rockcliffe Stables, where Canadian heritage and history is honored annually with the RCMP Musical Ride Centre’s parade and festivities.  

Baseball diamonds, soccer fields, the Canada Aviation and Space Museum and the Rockcliffe Boathouse Marina all offer up plenty to do in this community.

The Rockcliffe Parkway provides hiking, cycling and walking trails.

Although living here may give homeowners the feeling they are miles away from an urban core, accessibility to downtown for drivers is no problem with the Vanier Parkway and Highway 417 both easy options.

OC Transpo also serves Manor Park for easy service to wider destinations. Visit for more information about this neighbourhood.

The heart of the city’s francophone community, Quartier Vanier has been undergoing tremendous change and development in the last few years. Having become known as one of the Ottawa area’s least desirable places to live, the community organized and took the lead to promote itself, improve its streets, support its businesses and be proud of its neighbourhood, thus dispelling the “label”. You are invited to visit the website of the Quartier Vanier Merchants Association BIA.
