30 years of serving homeowners and real estate professionals in Eastern Ontario.
After working together as real estate appraisers at a real estate firm in Ottawa, Leonard Carty and Christopher Gwilym co-founded Carty Gwilym in downtown Ottawa in 1989. They decided to strike out on their own after receiving considerable encouragement from their families, colleagues and customers.
Meeting the needs of homeowners and the local real estate market.
Len and Chris saw a real need for a professional real estate appraisal firm that could deliver comprehensive services and meet the needs of homeowners, financial institutions and professional service firms. From day one they were both committed to operating Carty Gwilym with honesty, integrity and a genuine desire to help people in the residential and small commercial real estate market. Len and Chris also committed to creating a company that invested in technology as well as its people and, supported its community.
In the years since its founding, Carty Gwilym has helped thousands of home and property owners and become a trusted supplier to professional service and financial firms in the commercial and residential real estate markets in Ottawa and Eastern Ontario. Carty Gwilym has also seen its fair share of change and in some cases, challenges. In 1997, Christopher Gwilym had to step away from the day-to-day operations of Carty Gwilym because of severe health issues.
Tragedy strikes Carty Gwilym and a community responds with support.
In 2000, an arsonist set fire to Carty Gwilym’s west-end office building over the long weekend in August while staff were spending time with friends and families. While having their office and all its contents completely destroyed in the blaze was devastating, there was an unexpected upside. When he returned home from viewing the havoc wreaked by the fire, Len Carty started receiving phone calls from friends, customers and other people in the industry. All were stepping forward with offers of support that included computer equipment, supplies and temporary office space. Within days and with the generous support offered, Carty Gwilym was back in business. Today, a melted keyboard is framed in the Carty Gwilym offices as a reminder that from tragedy can come inspiration and that community matters.
Carty Gwilym believes in supporting their community.
Always a long-held tenet of Carty Gwilym, community support remains a strong focus today. Both the company and members of the Carty Gwilym team have donated their time, talents and funds to causes such as Habitat for Humanity and Abbeyfield Housing. Whenever asked, Carty Gwilym is happy to support community causes, particularly those who help vulnerable people find a place to call home.
