Originally hailing from the West Coast, Cynthia stepped into Real Estate nearly 30 years ago, and hasn’t looked back since. Cynthia dove deep into her career and discovered a true passion for helping people realize their real estate goals. She has served on multiple Real Estate boards from arbitration to MLS rules & regulations. Her journey eastward brought her great accomplishment as a full-time agent as well as a certified coach & trainer, with her eye on her clients’ success and the knowledge of the power of homeownership – especially for women. Cynthia appreciates & understands the relationships with her clients and holds their successes among her greatest accomplishments.
Cynthia’s method involves open and honest communication. Her insatiable love of research combined with her many years in the industry give her the kind of intuition that homebuyers can lean on for top tier advice when it comes to location, timing, and budget. This has led to a strong ongoing list of generations of clients. Having lived in the East and West ends of Ottawa, Cynthia has her finger on the pulse of the many different neighbourhoods, and knows what these areas have to offer.
The McGiverin lineage in Ottawa stems back to the early 1800’s, with family members serving as Members of Parliament, members of the Rideau Club, and were integral in launching the CNE in Toronto and the now disbanded Ottawa SuperEx. Perhaps Cynthia’s passion for giving back is in her DNA!
In her spare time Cynthia spends time with her husband and two dogs, savours every moment of summer, and carefully plans out her social media strategies.
Real Estate was suggested to me at a young age, and in it I found my freedom – financial freedom. It’s responsibility. It’s life. It’s given me everything I have, and I hold it very dear to my heart. I’m very committed to what I’m doing, and my clients can sleep soundly at night because they know I’m doing all the hard work for them.
I have two ways of answering that question: I worked really hard at my career as a self-employed woman in this industry and being able to buy my first home on my own. And also the people that I’ve had the opportunity to walk alongside in their journey. My clients are very much the highlight reel of my last 30 years
Food is my passion! If I have to pick one thing, it would be anything served to me at a restaurant in Mexico.
I’ve lived in Orleans, Alta Vista, Crystal Beach, and now in Kanata. I love the shopping, the parks, the trees and greenery.
My superpower is believing.
There is a woman from Rwanda, Immaculée Ilibagiza, who led her family out of the genocide there. I’ve read her book (Left to Tell: One Woman’s Story of Surviving the Rwandan Genocide) and watched her speak.
