Collette Aeschlimann

Sales Representative


In 1998, my family and I moved here from Switzerland to pursue dairy farming in Perth County. Growing up in the country set a precedent for me – I knew I could never live in a big city. The University of Guelph is what brought me to the Royal City in 2009. Being an agricultural “town” with the Ontario Veterinary College, various agricultural businesses and research facilities, OMAFRA, etc., it felt like home from the beginning. After four years, I graduated with honours from the Bachelor of Commerce program, having majored in Real Estate and Housing. The program exposed me to various facets of real estate, including property valuation and real estate finance, development, law and management. As well, it provided me with comprehensive business knowledge as it pertains to economics and accounting, valuable assets in this industry. In 2012, I completed my real estate license, and have been able to apply this knowledge and develop my expertise since. 

During my spare time I enjoy being active outdoors, working away at house projects, cooking and baking, or visiting my family on the home farm. I have taken on gardening as a hobby, and enjoy running, hiking and motorcycling. I am passionate about nature, farmland preservation and conservation, and have been acting as a board member with the Ontario Farmland Trust since 2020. I also volunteer on the Land Committee with said organization, and at Immigrant Services Guelph-Wellington. I am currently enrolled in a Masters program at the University of Guelph as a part time learner, and am enjoying it greatly. Continued learning with regards to rural planning and development are something I believe will not only advance my knowledge base, but keep me proficient and well-rounded with information – what I believe to be an asset for clients. “The more you know”. I enjoy supporting causes like the Big Bike for Heart and Stroke, Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowling for Kids’ Sake, as well as efforts and events by the Guelph General Hospital, the Movember Foundation, St. Joseph’s Health Centre, Canadian Mental Health Association, Kidsability and the Children’s Foundation.
