Maggie McDermott, Sales Representative, ABR®, SRS
I got hooked on real estate with the first home I ever bought in 1988. I chose a career in real estate because I simply enjoy meeting people, and love the whole process of buying and selling a home! I still recall the utter fear when buying my first home and the great experience I had when working with my Realtor®.
I specialize in Residential real estate working with Buyers, Sellers and Investors. I am a Landlord and have enjoyed the whole process of tending to my tenants and mentoring my investors in all areas of real estate investment. I am skilled in working with divorcing couples, as well as Seniors looking to downsize. .
Prior to starting my career in Real Estate, I stayed home to raise my children, volunteered on the school Parent Council, and ran my own small business. .
I am currently a volunteer at Meals on Wheels through Community Support Services and my local church.
Dan Porlier, Sales Representative, ABR®, SRS
To ensure that I am able to give my clients the fullest and most satisfying buying or selling experience, I continually hone my skills. I have acquired my ABR (accredited buyer representative) and my SRES (senior real estate specialist). I have lived in the Waterloo region for years and plan to stay here permanently. In my free time I love to golf, travel, and take in an occasional play. I am passionate about what I do and my clients benefit greatly from that.

Marge Di Blasio, Sales Representative
I worked in Information Technology for years and customer service has always been part of my professional life before transitioning to real estate. .
“Customer service” is more than a catchphrase to me — it’s a way of doing business. I strive to exceed my clients’ expectations in all aspects of the real estate process, and to “wow” them with my service-oriented approach.
Whether you are buying or selling, I will give you my best to work with you and promote your primary interests, wants and needs. I understand that buying or selling real estate can be very stressful. I will work hard to lower your stress level and make your experience as smooth as possible.
When I’m not helping my clients I enjoy reading, travelling, and spending time with my loving husband and 2 beautiful daughters. I also speak fluent Filipino. If you have any questions about my real estate services, or what I can do to help you, please don’t hesitate to ask. I look forward to hearing from you!
Jennie Fisher, Sales Representative
One of my greatest joys in life is helping people turn their dreams into reality. I had a very rewarding career working in the social service sector for more than 20 years and had the privilege of assisting people to achieve more than they thought possible.
Throughout my years of being a team leader with Community Living Guelph-Wellington, volunteering at my church and helping others with their home decorating needs, I became aware of how important developing and fostering relationships is to me. Also, I realized how much personal satisfaction I feel when I help others achieve their goals. After a very fulling career of over 20 years, I felt that it was time for a change. With an educational background as a Real Estate Law Clerk, experience building two homes for my family and recently purchasing and renovating investment properties, acquiring my Realtor registration seemed like the natural choice.
My number one priority is my clients needs and concerns. I will be available to them and work with their best interests in mind in every situation. I take pride in helping friends and families find the homes of their dreams. As your Realtor, I will go the extra mile and truly develop long lasting relationships where clients become friends. I will make your buying or selling experience less stressful and guide you through the process every step of the way.
It would be my pleasure to help you turn your dreams into reality!
