About Me & My Approach to Real Estate

My name is Catherine Swift, and I’m a full-time Realtor® that services the greater Ottawa area. From city homes to country estates and everything in between, I know the Ottawa real estate market inside and out. I love providing my clients with attentive, caring service while I use creative and modern solutions to help them achieve their Ottawa real estate ambitions.

Whether you’re interested in buying, selling, or investing in Ottawa real estate, you can rely on my experience, local expertise, and innovative practices to guide you through our real estate relationship together.


“Making the decision to move was difficult for us but deciding to have Catherine help us was not. From our first meeting, Catherine made us feel at ease. We were extremely impressed with her professionalism and her honest and caring attitude. In the end, our house sold in 7 days, and we couldn’t have dreamed of having a better experience.”

- Brenda & Bill Bretzloff

A Brief Background on Catherine Swift

While I’m originally from Toronto, I moved to Ottawa over 25 years ago for a full lifestyle change. Ever since then, I’ve been in love with all of Ottawa’s unique communities and especially appreciate the natural beauty Ottawa has to offer.

I’ve been a full-time Realtor® here since 2005, following my 20-year career as a private consultant for Canada’s provincial and federal governments. I studied French language and literature at the University of Toronto and l’université de Montréal, primarily because of my love of the language and culture, but it has also stood me in good stead while working for the government and in my day-to-day Realtor® life. I’m fluent in both English and French and hold an E/E/E French language level — the highest French-language rating from the federal government.

After leaving the federal government and fuelled by my volunteer work, I knew I wanted to work closely with the many wonderful communities in Ottawa. I was guided towards a career in real estate because of my love for all things construction, renovation, and remodelling, as well as my deep knowledge of the local communities.

In fact, I have established a reputation for myself within the Ottawa real estate community for my knowledge of home systems and construction and am pretty handy around the house myself. You might be surprised by what I have in my purse!

What I love most about what I do is the unpredictability of the job — no two days are alike for me, which is why I’m always trying to expand my knowledge and skillset and improve my real estate practices.
