Where I Live and Work

Hi there! I'm Elaine Bauer, KW Real Estate Broker

Hello! I first came to KW in 1999 to join the engineering program at the University of Waterloo.  I quickly fell in love with the vibrant community and the quality of life here. However, life’s journey took me and my family to the US in 2011. I left with hopes of returning. In 2018, I had the opportunity to return, and it has been a joy raising my 4 wonderful children in this dynamic community. While my engineering career was fulfilling, my heart has always been drawn to Real Estate. Now, immersed in my true passion, I’ve never been happier! I’ve found my dream job, helping clients find their dream homes in the community I adore.

Taking the Leap to Do What I LOVE

Embarking on the journey from structural engineer to stay-at-home mom to Real Estate Broker has been fueled by my love of houses. Our family has moved 3 times so I know the importance of space and meeting the needs of a family. My passion for real estate is also connected with a love for my community and a desire to help people. It’s more than a profession; it’s helping families discover places they can call home, spaces where they can grow, laugh, and create everlasting memories. 

“The only way to do great work is to love what you do.”

My Real Estate

Crush

I’m a sucker for modern farm house, black & white homes. Cedar shakes, board & batten siding & shiplap walls make me swoon.

After Hours

Hangout

When I’m not working you’ll find me sipping tea on my porch, taking care of my lawn or trying to herd my 4 children to rugby, football, hockey or swim lessons.

My Happy

Place

There’s no place that helps me unwind better than spending time at home with family & friends. Second best place is in the stands cheering on my amazing kids. Third, but not least, is being in St. Mary’s with my parents helping them or just catching up.
