Meet Martin Elder

Ottawa Real Estate Agent

Hi! Let me introduce myself: I’m Martin Elder, and my journey into the world of real estate is deeply intertwined with my personal story. It all started during my time studying architecture in France, where I found myself captivated by the intricate dance between space and light. Little did I know, this fascination would shape my future in profound ways. Returning to my home town of Ottawa after my studies, I was struck by how powerful the idea of ‘home’ is for all of us, sparking my drive to carve out my place in the world with a career I was passionate about and a community that I could feel rooted to. 


As I ventured into my real estate career in Fredericton, New Brunswick, back in 1973, I embarked on a journey marked by historic properties and ambitious renovations. From my very first property investment—an old home destined to become a riverside inn—I was drawn to the challenge of preserving history while creating spaces that felt truly alive. Over the years, I’ve had the privilege of working on everything from historic landmarks to modern city homes, each project fueling my passion for finding the perfect match between client and property.


Throughout my career, I’ve been honored to receive recognition for my dedication and expertise in the field of real estate. From designing and renovating newer city homes to creating a property management service for rental properties, I’ve always strived to push the boundaries of what’s possible in this ever-evolving industry. My commitment to client satisfaction has earned me the trust of the diplomatic community, business professionals, and first-time buyers alike.


But for me, success isn’t just about accolades, it’s about the relationships I build with my clients along the way. I believe that real estate is about more than just buying and selling properties; it’s about helping people find their place in the world – like I did so long ago. That’s why I take a personalized approach to every transaction, guiding my clients through every step of the process with care and expertise.


So if you’re ready to embark on your own real estate journey, I’m here to help! From finding your dream home to navigating the intricacies of the buying and selling process, I’ll be by your side every step of the way. 


Together, let’s turn your real estate dreams into reality!
