Following in the footsteps of his father Chris, who has owned Henderson Williams LLP since the 1970s, Wade had been a lawyer at that firm since 2006. A significant portion of his work has been working on real estate transactions, which inspired him to want to open his own brokerage. Initially it was to help his own law clients with their closings, but later to cater to discriminating buyers and sellers throughout the Bay of Quinte region and beyond. With a sincere desire to provide the best service possible to his real estate clients, and the best value for the dollar, Wade chose an innovative and client-focused approach the brokerage. He has created a model which is more efficient, flexible and responsive. Since opening the real estate brokerage, Wade has gone on to earn his broker’s licence, so he can participate more fully, and offer expert, detailed and timely legal advice on transactions coming into the company.

She understands the appeal of the Bay of Quinte/County whether it be as a secondary home or as a full-time resident. Ann’s clients often describe her as detail-oriented, proactive and someone who really listens to their wants and needs and guides them through the process of buying or selling from start to finish.

She also enjoys volunteering with Habitat for Humanity where she most recently participated in a build in Honduras.
