I have been a resident of Guelph for over 45 years and am proud to call Guelph my home. I was born and raised on the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland to Canadian parents with Guelph roots. When it came time to choose a post secondary education, the University of Guelph is where I landed to study science and then returned to the U.S. to pursue Veterinary Technology. While studying at the U. of G., I enjoyed the attributes of Guelph’s diverse community and moved back to the Royal City to start a family and career. I am committed to supporting local businesses and charities.
I worked in the not-for-profit sector for over 25 years as an Executive Director and received the Guelph Police Service Award and Commemorative Medal of Canada for my service and contribution to the citizens of Guelph and animal welfare. Currently, I serve as a Director of the Westminster Woods Lambeth Way condominium board, and a Director of CanFel Foundation which is a public foundation that supports animal welfare initiatives in Canada.
Since I became a REALTOR® in 2003, I have been a proud recipient of yearly Royal LePage awards. These awards recognize consistency in sales excellence and achievement.
My goals as a REALTOR® is to help clients achieve their real estate dreams and make informed choices by providing personalized service, market updates, knowledge of the area, and attention to detail. I respect the importance of building relationships with clients, listening to their needs, and communicating results. A little humour goes a long way, too!
If you are looking to buy or sell real estate, I am here to help you with your move and would love to hear from you!

“I’ve worked with many realtors over the years and I would say Lorna Ronald has been the most personable, professional and attentive of any that I’ve worked with. She’s able to connect and establish a working relationship with clients immediately and quickly understand their needs. Whether we were buying or selling I have found Lorna to be exceptionally attentive and her many years of experience in real estate made the process and paperwork seem effortless. Through her extensive professional network she has also been able to provide referral and support for my commercial/business needs. Lorna is an all-round excellent realtor – experienced, community connected, professional, reliable and personable. I couldn’t recommend her more.”
In the last 5 years, I have bought several homes with Lorna. She is one of the most honest and ethical people I have ever met. What a great combination to find in an agent! She has the experience and support staff needed in this highly competitive market. I have and will continue to recommend Lorna!
Lorna was a very pleasant and friendly person to deal with. She was enthusiastic about selling our place. She took the time to explain everything to us before we listed with her and she was always patient when answering our questions. She had a clear marketing plan for selling our house based on her proven success record. She showcased our house in multiple medias and after just one active week we had three offers from which we could choose a buyer.
Lorna was a pleasure to deal with and we would gladly recommend her to family and friends. We would give her a 5-star rating.
“My husband and I were making a huge move from Toronto to Guelph, and we didn’t know the city all that well when we started our hunt. Lorna and her team (Collette and Owen in particular) were so patient with us as we explored many different neighbourhoods and properties, and were honest with us when something we saw didn’t really fit our needs or wants. Lorna genuinely cared about our family and understood our stress about finding a new home to love. We trusted her implicitly to take care of our needs and support us throughout the process.”
“Moving houses can be a trying and befuddling process, full of stresses and strains. In the midst of that process, what you most long for is a guide, someone who can allay your fears, demystify the complexities, and help gently to set you upon the smoothest path, the one that’s right for you. Lorna Ronald is such a person; and she has been extraordinarily kind and helpful to us, a wise guide through the thorns and thickets of moving house. Her understanding of the terrain is complete, she communicates with clarity and a sense of fun, and she makes one feel secure in the midst of a process that can otherwise be quite unsettling.
I’m deeply grateful to Lorna for her help and guidance. And I recommend her in the very highest terms.”
Lorna was the perfect agent for my fiancée and I. She had worked with my fiancée in the past (long ago) and he knew she would be the right fit for us. Lorna has a keen sense about her clients. Is able to quickly determine what is right or not right for her clients and even offers suggestions that we didn’t think of without compromising our needs. Lorna is highly motivated and to the point — which was perfect for us. She is very familiar with the Guelph neighbourhoods and is able to pinpoint homes that fit our needs.
Her knowledge of the industry is very apparent and we appreciated her expertise. She walked us through each step of the process with patience and kindness. In turn it made this experience easy and dare I say fun. I highly recommend Lorna if you are looking for an agent that will be honest, motivated and dedicated to finding the right home….not just any home!
