Collette Aeschlimann

Sales Representative


In 1998, my family and I immigrated to Canada 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 “homey”. After four years, I graduated 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 2011, prior to obtaining my real estate license, I began working as an administrative assistant for the RC Team. I began to feel that a real estate sales career could present an opportunity for me to apply my knowledge, which would also give me credence within the industry. Thus, I obtained my license in 2012.

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 and conservation, and have been acting as a board member with the Ontario Farmland Trust since Spring 2020. I also volunteer on the Land Committee with said organization, and at Immigrant Services Guelph-Wellington. I recently completed a Masters in Planning. A broadened understanding of rural planning and development is something I believe not only enhances my knowledge base, but gives me some level of proficiency within the subject matter – 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.
