Agency Director, HP & Associés
Born in Alberta, Heidy had the opportunity to experience life in a number of places, having grown-up in Germany, Ontario and Quebec. After many years in the hospitality sector, she went on to study business administration at UQAM. She then merged her passion for people, and her skills in business to become a licensed real estate broker.
Equipped with a mind to transform a rather cut and dry industry, Heidy developed her own concept of real estate concierge, and founded her own agency; HP & Associés. Her dedication towards building lasting relationships is weaved into her agency through her clients, partners, and team.
Undoubtedly, Heidy is the soul of the agency, infusing her energy, determination and her vision within all components of the business. In sustaining such optimism and strong core values, she surrounds herself with like-minded professionals. Together they merge their efforts to create a lasting, and impactful experience for clients. It is through these efforts that HP & Associés can unearth the hidden gem that you would only dream about!
For Heidy, her treasure is found in seeing the happiness created through her and her teams work, then returning home to the laugher, and joy of her four spirited boys.

Our team is fortunate to have Luc, holding a PhD in economics, with extensive business experience in Canada and France and a sharp eye for figures. His knowledge is particularly helpful to foreign entrepreneurs as he guides them in the ‘how to’ of doing business in Quebec, negotiating an agreement and signing a contract. He is also very knowledgeable in tax laws within Quebec and educates clients regarding them. Questions clients often ask him are: Should I buy or rent? Is it a worthwhile investment or not? What type of returns can I expect? Etc. While anyone can offer an answer at HP & Associés, we understand that true value will come in responding to these questions based on your specific situation. As such, Luc will focus on your relevant needs and resources, while considering all the facts and figures available. He is eager in helping clients and is diligent in answering their questions through analyzing data, studying cost-benefits, and uncovering the invisible, keeping you well informed about the real estate you have your eye on.
