Silvia grew up in the South-western part of Germany, in the region of Baden, between the river Rhine and the Blackforest. Good wine, good food and an abundance of history have taught her to cherish good times.
3 years of Restaurant Management training in Baden-Baden have instilled never-ending customer service skills. Silvia has been in Canada since 1992 and called Miramichi City in New Brunswick, Victoria and Prince George in British Columbia as well as Angus in Ontario her home before settling more local in the Ottawa Valley.
Silvia now lives on a small farm near North Gower, where she keeps rescued horses, a dog and cats. Riding her motorcycle, playing hockey , as well as experimenting growing her own produce are just some of the hobbies she enjoys. Silvia is fluent in German and English.
"Silvia was so helpful and understanding of our stressful situation, we never hesitated to call, text or email with any concerns or questions.
After all the paperwork was finalized, Silvia suggested the name of a lawyer, a home inspector and others as we had no such contacts in the Smiths Falls area. We can’t express how appreciative we were of all the extra help and information Silvia gave us leading up to our move."
The day of our move on July 23rd , on one of the hottest days of this hot summer of 2018, we arrived at our new home a little later than expected. Silvia was waiting with a smile and some cold beverages in the refrigerator.
We have kept in touch, and Silvia is a person we would not hesitate to call or recommend to any potential home buyers. Uprooting and moving can potentially be one of the most upsetting and stressful experience for anyone, but with the professional guidance, patience and constant reassurance from Silvia Blanchard, our transition to our new home could not have been easier

“I just wanted to take a few moments to thank you for helping me find my home. You were so very patient and understanding especially since I was out of province at the time. Your patients with me looking at houses online many hours and on the phone Finally led to several viewings to where I found the one I wanted.
You have been an excellent Real Estate person,
- So I thank you from the bottom of my heart
“We met Sylvia in the summer of 2018 through an open house and found her to be quite personable and knowledgeable. We contacted her to come to our house to do a market analysis and give us some options as we were selling a home that would appeal only to certain buyers, (a 1 bedroom hobby farm).
She was very confident and encouraging throughout the whole process of selling our home and then purchasing a new home. She brought in professionals for photographs and aerials which looked awesome. Not only did she sell our home in less than a week, it also sold for much higher than what a previous realtor assessed the house for only 6 months prior. She then found us a new home that was everything we were looking for.
She made sure that everything went smoothly for both transactions and even helped us with such things as obtaining a lawyer and inspections and rehoming farm animals.
She always kept in contact with us to make sure we were up to date with any new information and to offer help and support. On moving day, she showed up to help us move and we were more than grateful. We began the journey with a great realtor and ended with wonderful friends. Sylvia went out of her way to make both transactions as seamless as possible and we would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor who will go above and beyond for her clients.
"We are so thankful for your professionalism and support in helping us buy our first home. It has been such a great experience, especially because we were newcomers to Canada at that time. We really appreciated your thoughtful and personal touch. We appreciate the level of honesty, integrity and professionalism.

“Silvia was able to sell my property within a very short time of listing while others before her weren’t. She found me many homes to look at, visit and compare and eventually purchase. I have since sold a second property with Silvia’s help. The very first showing produced an offer with a higher sales price than I expected to get.
- I find Silvia pleasant and very helpful.
