Meet the Team


Jessica Hellard, Real Estate Broker & Team Leader


Why did I pursue real estate as a career? It’s simple. I love helping people! While buying and selling often feels overwhelming and all about the numbers, I know it’s incredibly personal for my clients – and that makes it incredibly personal to me.

Helping clients realize their individual goals – whatever they may be – is one of the most rewarding aspects of my job. I genuinely enjoy working with people, being an encouraging presence, lessening the stress and anxiety of the process, and having a bit of fun along the way. I build lifelong relationships with my clients, striving to be a reassuring resource for them whenever they need real estate support.

I promise that engaging me as your representative will be enjoyable and productive. I studied economics at Queen’s University, am a registered real estate broker, and have worked in real estate for 15 years. I have a deep understanding of the industry driven by my insatiable appetite for learning. Being a tech geek, I seriously love figuring out ways to make things easier and more profitable, and so enjoy watching my clients benefit.

I truly understand all facets of the real estate industry. I have owned and managed several rental units with my husband, who works in property management, and partnering with RE/MAX provides me with a wonderful network, resources, and development opportunities. I leverage all of this to market my clients’ properties, employing social, digital and traditional marketing for remarkable results.   

My natural curiosity also means I know a great deal about the city of Kingston and its surrounding areas. The city is distinct for its vibrant downtown, historic architecture, lakeside locale, tight-knit community, unique neighbourhoods, and the beauty of the surrounding region. One of the greatest pleasures of my job is helping clients discover the charm of the greater Kingston area and the quality of life it affords.

That quality of life is the reason my husband and I chose to make Kingston home for our family, which includes our son and a menagerie of cats and rabbits, and a happy-go-lucky dog. Supporting this community is very important to me. I give back both personally and professionally, including co-founding Kingston Animal Rescue, a volunteer-run registered charity.

When you work with me you can expect integrity, authenticity, and passion. I will fight for your best interest, help you realize your goals, and provide an exceptional, 5-star real estate experience.  🙂
