Certified Real Estate Broker Chartered AEO

Over the course of her stellar career in Montreal real estate, since 1996 Katia has successfully closed over 1,800 transactions and, in the process, gained top value for her clients’ assets while helping buyers access their dream home.

Despite natural changes and occasional volatility to the market, Katia keeps a finger on the pulse of real estate trends in order to best guide consumers on one of the most important transactions of their life.

Proactive and solution-oriented, Katia has an outstanding talent for getting things done quickly and smoothly, while her deep sense of empathy makes her the ideal negotiator to sell your house or condo.

Katia has her clients’ interests at heart, and this translates in every step of the real estate transaction. Whether in English or French, her clients can rest assured they will be well taken care of.

In 2019, after more than 25 years of being associated with a big banner, Katia decided to launch Katia Samson Real Estate Group, her own boutique real estate agency serving Montreal’s Sud-Ouest and adjacent neighbourhoods.

Given the pressures of a busy real estate career, Katia makes the extra effort to maintain a balanced and healthy lifestyle. She is a sports enthusiast who enjoys hitting the ski slopes when not surfing the waves at a sun-drenched destination. When in town, she can often be spotted exploring new restaurants around St-Henri and the Lachine Canal with her beloved pooch Sofia.

Real Estate Broker

When it comes to the world of real estate, Alex is a natural. He loves nothing better than the feeling he gets when clients “swipe right” on a new home he is showing. He came to the business from the construction industry, where he gained experience as a manager.

His interest for interior design and cool, modern décor translates well when working with clients who need to declutter their space and make it appeal to as many potential buyers as possible.

Since they have similar lifestyles, younger clients looking to buy their first property naturally connect with Alex. But demographics are no obstacle; he resonates with people of all ages and can quickly adapt to their needs. He is all in when it comes to helping his clients achieve their housing goals.

Tireless in aiming to achieve complete client satisfaction, he shoulders the weight of a transaction throughout the process, lessening the load for buyers and sellers. From home staging to inspection to signing the deed of sale, clients are in the very best of hands with Alex. His motto: “No stress.”

In his downtime, Alex plays in softball and hockey leagues. And he loves to man the stove in his Sud-Ouest condo, where friends and family sample the new dishes he cooks up.


Residential and Commercial Real Estate Broker

Katsiaryna was brought up in Eastern Europe, where she developed a refined sense of style and a natural aptitude for creating living spaces that are both functional and beautiful.

She launched her first career in interior design by buying, repairing and remodelling residential and commercial properties.

A passion for sustainability has led her to explore design solutions that aim to lower our environmental footprint. She is formally educated in LEED certification building methods.

Katsiaryna’s love of and respect for nature carries over into her downtime activities, which include furniture making and adventure travel.

Clients love working with her because she treats their concerns, no matter how minor, as both genuine and important. Her considerate and calm personality has proved an invaluable asset during high-stress negotiations.

She has a solid track record of successful real estate investments. Having managed such a diverse range of projects, Katsiaryna can offer reliable advice backed up by ample experience during any real estate transaction.


Office Coordinator

Passionate about seeing others around her succeed, Lianne is the executive administrative assistant most brokers wish they had on their team!

Meticulous, compassionate, and ultra-organized, she brings to Katia Samson Real Estate Group many years of experience in luxury real estate together with a bachelor’s degree in English education, the stamina required to work in an industry that’s constantly evolving at a fast pace, and the temperament to always do it with kindness.  

Marketing is one of Lianne’s favourite aspects of the business, since that’s where everything comes together for prospective clients to see their future property online and the offers to start coming in. 

“I like to work with people who are caring, and here at Katia Samson every broker is always very attentive to our clients’ unique needs. It makes my day at work very rewarding when I’m able to take care of people and help make their dreams come true,” she says.

TAMARA MARSH  BSc., DEP Professional Photography

Office Coordinator

Driven by the desire to help her teammates succeed, coupled with her experience in working in local service companies, Tamara is responsible for keeping everything running smoothly at the Katia Samson Real Estate Group. 

As such, she manages the day-to-day operations of the office and plays a significant role in making sure every presentation and transaction is seamless. 

Her experience as an entrepreneur and her natural ability to balance a demanding workload, makes Tamara the ideal person to manage a busy real estate group and assist successful brokers in achieving their goals to offer clients the best service in the business. 

Katia’s relationship with Tamara goes back a long way. They met when Tamara was Operations Manager at Moksha Yoga studio in 2009 and continued when she launched Mason & Co., her pet services company. “I feel Tamara is a huge asset to the team because she’s reliable and trustworthy,” says Katia.


Administrative Assistant

Deeply passionate about the real estate industry, Nicolas is the youngest recruit of Katia Samson Real Estate Group. But don’t let his age fool you! This enthusiastic and very friendly young man embodies the true character and motivation of a seasoned real estate professional.

A highly organized and meticulous administrative assistant, Nicolas can easily switch from publishing new sales listings on the Katia Samson Real Estate Group website, to cold-calling prospective clients, to drafting contracts.

“I love a busy, dynamic office like Katia’s, where every day brings many new things, and challenges me to take a deep dive into the business,” says Nicolas, who expects to receive his brokerage licence in the very near future and work for Katia’s group full time. “I love everything about real estate; whether it has to do with brokerage or investments.”

If some people that say that “time is money,” Nicolas is primed for his upcoming career with another one of his passions: collector’s watches!
