About Judy Manherz

Judy Manherz Ottawa Realtor with Royal Lepage Performance Realty


I am very excited to be joining Eric and Steve to help people buy and sell real estate, whether for investment or a place to call home.  Over the years, I observed them enthusiastically and tirelessly help many clients, family and friends in this area.

Career:  In 2019, I retired from a wonderful career as a professor in the Police Foundations Program at Algonquin College, teaching and learning from amazing students from a variety of backgrounds, with varying goals, strengths and motivation.  I owe my career at Algonquin College to my previous profession as a police officer with the Ottawa Police Service and a secondment to the Canadian Police College as a police instructor.

Family:  I am super proud of my 3 sons and my stepson.  They have provided wonder, laughter, love and excitement and helped to shape the person I am today.  Each of them has brought a unique and genuine piece to our puzzle and blessed us with the addition of their partners.   In June, 2019, Ken and I got married after being together for several years.  What an amazing time with family and friends who helped us celebrate!!! This expanded my family with the loving addition of Ken’s two amazing sons and their families.  I am very grateful!

The Asides:  Fitness, Art and Dogs!

Raised in Niagara Falls, Ontario, I attended the University of Waterloo to complete a Bachelor of Science (Kinesiology).  Following that, I moved to Ottawa and have remained here. I started out working in the fitness industry and have remained involved in various aspects throughout my life to date, leading classes in fitness, yoga, FRC and ball therapy.

I am an artist, painting animals, pets, people and more, capturing life on canvas.

Dogs have been an important part of my entire life.  I have owned and trained many over the years along with teaching and/or helping others to train their own dogs.  Most rewarding of all was spending the previous 4 years training Service Dogs for first responders and military persons with PTSD.  I had never imagined the incredible impact of this on the master, the dog and on myself in the coaching role.  It changed my life. 

Finally, In the spirit of helping others, I look forward continuing this through real estate.  Let the adventure begin!
