About Eric Manherz – Realtor with EXP Realty – Ottawa
I’m Eric Manherz – As an Ottawa Realtor currently with EXP Realty, it has been a great pleasure and honour to assist so many wonderful people get what they want!
If you’re dreaming of a new home or looking to sell yours we’ll be delighted to do the same for you.
Our expertise and procedures and delight in helping have resulted in our sellers consistently putting more dollars in their pockets and in less time that the average Ottawa Realtor.
I was born just outside of Montreal, moved to Ontario in primary school years and finished high school in Niagara Falls. I came to Ottawa in 1974 to get a degree from Carleton University and never left. Got two fun jobs not in my field right out of university, one on a local comedy show and one as a waiter at the Marble Works restaurant which I thoroughly enjoyed, then spent many years working in high tech before making the jump to Real Estate, and haven’t looked back.
My partner Steve Langlois and I have been together since 1979. Steve also worked in high tech field for years and in our spare time we liked to buy places and renovate them. With our high tech background, we also ended up developing real estate web software for realtors.
Because I’ve always had lots of interest in Architecture and the Real Estate field, I decided to get my real estate license in 2005 and was fortunate enough to join a wonderful Ottawa Real Estate firm right out of the gate – Royal Lepage Performance Realty. Within the first year I was doing it full time and quit the high tech business to enjoy it full out. Steve got his license and joined me in 2007.
We’ve been working together ever since and loving it.
Our tech knowledge has proven very useful for creating and managing our own websites to ensure that the properties we sell for clients appear prominently in the search engines. I also continue to manage several other websites for friends and non-profits as a hobby, including a website I created years ago when my senior mother moved to town – www.ottawaseniors.com.
Being involved with the seniors site has also given me the means to build up a great network of complementary services that I can direct to those who need them, particularly when it comes to downsizing.
My work as a realtor has been very rewarding and fun, and in addition to being awarded the Royal LePage Lifetime Award of Excellence, this year (2021), I also received the Royal LePage Red Diamond Award, for ranking in the top 2% of Royal Lepage realtors across Canada.
I am a member of many professional organizations including the Ottawa Real Estate Board (OREB), the Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA) and the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA), plus the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and NAGLREP, the National Association of Gay and Lesbian Real Estate Professionals.
The contacts, ideas, and resources are invaluable for me to help people get what they want and realize their dreams!
Making new connections and getting to know people and their families is the most rewarding part of this business. If I can be of any assistance to you in planning your next real estate transaction, or answer any questions for you, please give me a call today at 613-601-6404! We always have time for one or two more so each month so if you have friends or family that would appreciate our help – let us know.
