Wally’s passion for farming and his understanding of farm operators – their challenges, opportunities and sensibilities – comes directly from experience. He was raised on a farm in Carp, Ontario, which he subsequently purchased in 2000, and continued to operate as a cash crop and cow/calf beef business until 2007.
After several years in construction and engineering, Wally entered real estate in 1986. By 1996 he had earned his real estate broker’s license and by 2000 had built and was managing a 30-person real estate office.
An active member in his community, Wally has worked on many local committees and associations and for 20 years has enjoyed coaching minor hockey with the Ottawa Valley Titans and the West Carleton Minor Hockey Associations.
Wally enjoys time with his family, old-timers hockey, travel, and gardening, and will freely offer tips to colleagues trying to nurture their city garden plots.
