Originally from Montreal, Quebec, Rachel moved to Ottawa and received an honours degree in Criminology and Psychology from the University of Ottawa. After several successful and rewarding years in the field of social work, fate played its card.
Rachel’s first home purchase impacted her so much, she was recruited by one of the most successful Real estate teams in the luxury market to join the world of real estate. By 2005, Rachel was accredited as a Sales Representative, and in 2010 as a Broker by the Ontario Real Estate Association. Currently designated as Broker of Record for her sub-franchise brokerage – Royal LePage Team Realty, Hammer & Associates, Rachel heads up the rachelhammer.com real estate team, a highly technology based real estate team which employs a client centred approach to its services.
Over the years, Rachel has been appointed as Chair of the Disciplinary Committee, Professional Standards, Realtors Care Foundation and a Board of Director for the Ottawa Real Estate Board. Rachel and her team have successfully achieved top 1% in Canada for the Ottawa market area and have built an entire business on the principle of being realtors you could trust in the Nation’s Capital. Rachel and her team are passionate about helping people through life’s many challenges and transitions, approaching each purchase and sale with the kindness and compassion everyone deserves as they navigate through the process of their personal wants vs. their real estate needs.
When she is not running her business, you will find Rachel either enjoying time with her two wonderful children or you can find her enjoying yoga, reading books and learning to meditate.
