Family Real Estate Business Ottawa

People often ask me, what's it like to be in a family business, especially in real estate.

My name is Greg Hamre from RE/MAX Affiliates in Ottawa and the Hamre Real Estate Team. My last name is Hamre. It's a Norwegian background, but very few of us in Ottawa. In fact, if you meet any Hamre in Ottawa, it's very likely that they are REALTORS® three generations of REALTORS® here selling real estate in Ottawa for over 40 years.

But when the question comes up, how do you deal with working with family? I simply say this, I make it clear that there's a difference between the kitchen table and a boardroom table going into the holiday season. We'll want to shut it off, especially during that precious moments of the holiday season. Work won't come up. We won't talk about interactions in the holidays or transactions or deals or upcoming listings. We'll be simply focused on the kitchen table and that's the family moment. It's precious to me.

And number one thing I want to be is called that after the New Year, we'll back into the swing of things and we'll be, I'll be the team leader and we'll, we'll be pushing on to create a wonderful experiences for our clients in 2024. But during the holiday season and at the kitchen table, I want to be called dad and it's a kitchen table, not a boardroom table.

Lots of people have family businesses. I hope if this is a tip for an inspiration to you, I hope you take it to your kitchen table this holiday season.

My name is Greg Hamre from RE/MAX Affiliates in Ottawa and the Hamre Real Estate Team. Hope to see you soon. Take care
