Real estate is about experience.
“I don't rest until my clients are happy in the home of their dreams.”
I love working in real estate because it combines my passion for helping people with my life-long interest in where we live, and why. As a child was enthralled with real estate ads and thought everyone appeared to love what they were doing. Little did I know that I would have the privilege of working in this industry and love going to work every day.
I work with buyers to find the right home for their needs, and also help our sellers achieve mass appeal based on what buyers are currently looking for. I use my in-depth knowledge of Ottawa’s neighborhoods, communities, and real estate market to help my clients achieve their goals.
I would be happy to help you find the home of your dreams and guide you through the home buying process from start to finish.

Buying a house can be stressful. In our case it was extremely difficult. Our child was in the hospital fighting a battle with cancer, we had 26 days to find a new home in a new city 5 hours away. We will forever be grateful to have made the choice to use Christina as our real estate agent. She went above and beyond what we needed. She drove across town looking at houses for us when we were unable to. She listened to us, truly seemed to understand what we wanted, and helped us find a home that suited our needs. I don’t think you can find a more genuine, kind, trustworthy, knowledgeable real estate agent.
Rachel, Christina and the entire team are the best hands down. Want a true professional, compassionate and caring team? Do not call anyone else but Rachel Hammer! They deliver beyond expectations!
It was rather serendipitous finding the Rachel Hammer Team. They were the listing agents on a property I was interested in. From that first contact I had nothing but caring and professional service. Would definitely recommend Rachel Hammer and her team. Christina Colton was excellent.
