the team



Jeff Hooper is one of Ottawa’s most experienced real estate brokers. He made his mark on the real estate industry in Ottawa and in Canada when he introduced another real estate franchise brokerage model to Ottawa in 2001. The brokerage grew from a small office to the largest single real estate office in Ottawa and the largest office in Canada of that franchise. After officially “partnering” with RE/MAX Hallmark Realty Ltd. in 2016, the brokerage became a part of RE/MAX Hallmark Realty Group. Today, Jeff is proud to be building a legacy in RE/MAX Hallmark Hooper Group Realty with his family.

He is a seasoned negotiator and applies a “Win-Win or No Deal” approach when representing his clients. Prior to starting his career, Jeff earned a Bachelor of Commerce, with Honours, from Carleton University. Having been immersed in the real estate industry for more than 30 years, Jeff is known for his integrity, honesty, and fair approach to business.

Heavily invested in the community he serves, Jeff personally supports numerous local and international charities including CHEO, The Ottawa Hospital, Help Lesotho, Boys & Girls Club and Bruce House.

As an involved, long-time resident of the Glebe and parent of four children, Jeff has developed an unparalleled understanding of the needs of urban families.
