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. 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.
I enjoy playing recreational volleyball, am a foodie and during my spare time, like being active outdoors, working away at house projects or visiting my family and choring on the home farm. I am fluent in Swiss German and have been slowly learning to speak Spanish, am a sub-mediocre salsa & bachata dancer and enjoy riding motorcycles.
What is an experience that has made you a stronger person?
Confronting my fear of heights (or of falling) by doing my first "Via Ferrata" in Banff; I now seek them out when I travel and feel that, overall, the first one made me more spontaneous and open to trying things that initially sound intimidating.
What is your favourite place you have travelled to?
Anywhere I've travelled that has had mountains. Switzerland, Patagonia, western Canada, specifically. It never gets old and in a perfect world, I would love to see parts of every mountain range in the world.
What do you love about being a REALTOR®?
The fact that my day never transpires and ends the way I thought it would in the morning.

Our experience with Collette was excellent. I was a first time home buyer and Collette took the time to explain all aspects of buying your first home. She came to countless house showings and was very flexible in working with my schedule. Collette was very personable and knowledgeable throughout the whole process. I will definitely use her in the future and would recommend her to all!
With-out a doubt I would strongly recommend Collette Aeschlimann as your real estate agent. It was Collette that truly gave us the feeling of a good personality fit. Her warmth and honesty was hands down the selling factor of why we chose her. She worked with us for one year of looking and bidding on many houses. The 3 of us found and my wife and I finally found and bought a great house in a great neighbourhood. One year of looking, over 100 homes. Collette was there and she never once faltered to provide to us her honest view of the home and if it would fit our comfort. Her patience, by far, is only one of many attributes she possesses. Attention to detail and great advice on what to look for, and of course to not get caught up in the craziness the Guelph market is. Thanks, Collette – you truly are a star above the rest.

Our first experience with Collette was amazing! She genuinely cares about you as a person and finding you a home that suits your specific needs. We must have gone through 20-25 homes before we found the perfect fit. My favourite part of the experience was Collette’s honesty. She would let you know if the home was overpriced or if there were problems with the home…. which certainly was appreciated. I would recommend Collette to everyone!
