About Cleo J. DeCoppel, Broker

I offer exceptional representation in all aspects of real estate investment and development. I insist on providing first class service to my clients, from initial consultation to closing. I strongly believe that understanding my client’s needs is essential to the organization of any real estate acquisition or sale.

Hi! I am Cleo J. DeCoppel and I am currently a Broker for RE/MAX Land Exchange Ltd. Brokerage in Port Elgin, ON. The spirit of Bruce County runs through my veins; I am a true PortElginite and Real Estate is my
passion in life.

If you want to know a bit more about who I am, professionally and personally, here is a little glimpse:

The Realtor®

Having lived in Port Elgin for the last 49 years, my love of this area is greatly reflected in the enthusiasm I have for my job. I am currently in my 19th year of selling real estate!

I enjoy my job very much; the people that I meet through my work is the aspect I most enjoy. One of my favourite parts of being a Realtor® is helping people to realize their real estate wants, needs and dreams. I
have a special fondness for first-time home buyers because of the excitement they bring to the process as a whole.

To me, clients are always #1! I strive to provide my patrons with more service than they would expect and, more importantly, the service they rightly deserve. I take pride in my reliability, accountability and

From the start of the business relationship, I will explain to my clients the different processes required in order to secure the sale, whether from the buying or selling end; I am there every step of the


Aside from Port Elgin, I can help you with buying and selling properties in a number of surrounding areas including Southampton, Saugeen Township, Paisley, Kincardine and Bruce Township; I cover both town and
rural areas, which lends to a unique blend of lifestyles.

One Half of Team DeCoppel

I am very happy to have had my oldest daughter, Jeryn, join me recently as a Sales Representative; we now work as partners- Team DeCoppel. Of course, my contributions to the team are heavily focused on the
mechanics of the business while guiding my daughter through the different processes and educating her on the various scenarios that she may encounter.

The Fab Factor

A few of my other passions include reading and travelling the world, specifically on cruise ships! I hope to make it to India in the future, and to also explore a few more areas of Canada. As well, my husband and I are presently addicted to Downton Abbey while we await the new season of Game of Thrones. I also like cake and my favourite colour is yellow.

The Person

Although my job requires complete dedication and entails odd hours, I AM a person; a wife, a mother & step-mother, a grandmother, a great aunt… the list goes on. I have been married for 30 years, with two daughters
aged 24 & 27. I am quite lucky to have their 100% support in my career venture as they have always accepted “stopping at the office” as a normal part of our family routine. They put up with my abnormal hours. And I can’t forget to mention the two little doggies we have at home, Trixie (a shih tzu) and Bella (a shih poo), who make coming home from the office that much more enjoyable.

Many years ago I left Port Elgin to attend Fanshawe College in London, ON. From there, I attempted to settle in Calgary, AB for about two years. However, I always returned to Port Elgin as I believe it is the best place to raise a family!

I owned and operated a clothing store, The Exquisite Touch, for 7 years before taking time off to spend with my children prior to their start in school. Later on, I helped out my family in their business of running the Queen’s Hotel at the corner of Goderich Street and Gustavus Street. Once I found my way into real estate, I was hooked; I knew I had found my true calling!
