We’re taking our winning formula, and continue to make significant investments in technology to help our clients to buy and sell real estate. 


James Bostwick Equity One

Meet Jim Bostwick.

In his many years as a licensed real estate broker, there isn't much Jim hasn't seen in this business. From his days as a salesperson, to his years as a branch manager for one of the largest real estate franchises in Canada, Jim has witnessed tremendous change to an industry that continuously adapts. He's seen first hand how access to information has essentially reshaped how people buy and sell homes - and he's seen the shift from the traditional model to a growing number of alternatives.

Jim co-founded Equity One, and is the Broker of Record for the company. Jim is married to Wendy, and together they are the proud parents of Dr. Joanna Bostwick, a local Ottawa Physician. As well as performing his daily duties overseeing the brokerage, Jim is a genius on the piano. He volunteers his piano-playing talent at many of the local hospitals and retirement homes.
