Dan Porlier, Team Leader, Broker, ABR®, SRS

I have been in Sales my whole life. A large portion of that has been in the corporate world of automotive manufacturing. Negotiating with large car companies all over the world allowed me to gain great negotiating skills. I fell in love with real estate when I bought my first income property and became a landlord years ago. I have a large family and totally understand the changing needs of home ownership. My life experiences allow me to coach all of my clients; from first time buyers to seniors looking to downsize.

To ensure that I am able to give my clients the fullest and most satisfying buying or selling experience, I continually hone my skills. I have acquired my ABR (accredited buyer representative) and my SRES (senior real estate specialist). I have lived in the Waterloo region for years and plan to stay here permanently. In my free time I love to golf, travel, and take in an occasional play. I am passionate about what I do and my clients benefit greatly from that.

My name is Madeline Compton, and I am the Administrative Coordinator for the KW Real Estate Team.

I enjoy and take pleasure in helping my colleagues stay organized, updating and maintaining their CRM, scheduling events, and helping you with the purchase or sale of your home.

If there is anything that I can do to assist you, please reach out to me. It would be my pleasure to help.

Jennie Fisher, Sales Representative

One of my greatest joys in life is helping people turn their dreams into reality. I had a very rewarding career working in the social service sector for more than 20 years and had the privilege of assisting people to achieve more than they thought possible.

Throughout my years of being a team leader with Community Living Guelph-Wellington, volunteering at my church and helping others with their home decorating needs, I became aware of how important developing and fostering relationships is to me. Also, I realized how much personal satisfaction I feel when I help others achieve their goals. After a very fulling career of over 20 years, I felt that it was time for a change. With an educational background as a Real Estate Law Clerk, experience building two homes for my family and recently purchasing and renovating investment properties, acquiring my Realtor registration seemed like the natural choice.

My number one priority is my clients needs and concerns. I will be available to them and work with their best interests in mind in every situation. I take pride in helping friends and families find the homes of their dreams. As your Realtor, I will go the extra mile and truly develop long lasting relationships where clients become friends. I will make your buying or selling experience less stressful and guide you through the process every step of the way.

It would be my pleasure to help you turn your dreams into reality!

Dawson Porlier, Sales Representative, SRES®

Having a background in sales and finance really allowed me to become customer oriented. Going the extra mile to ensure clients are satisfied is a must. I take pride in acting with confidence, sincerity and integrity to ensure that my clients are aware of what real service means. My passion for sales started years ago when doing door to door sales. Since then, those skills were further enhanced while working at a financial institution. Thus, bringing me where I am today. I am grateful for a career that allows me to support others in their endeavor to achieve their dream home. This career allows me to tailor and personalize that experience in order to create a long-lasting relationship.

Mariska Vergeer, Sales Representative

After immigrating from the Netherlands, my husband and I settled in Waterloo Region in 1986, and we still live here. I have been passionate about real estate from the first time we bought our little bungalow to the house we currently live in. For many years my priority was raising our family and supporting my husband in building our company in the food industry. Now that our children have ventured out on their own, I am excited to commit to the flexibility and dedication needed to focus on my clients and their endeavors in real estate.
