Desirée Alarie has been a REALTOR® since 2005. In 2003 while completing her degree at The University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario she was offered a small career development project at a local Century 21 office. With a keen interest in real estate from a young age this provided the classic "start in the mail room" opportunity. She soon fell in love with real estate sales and decided to pursue this as her career. After becoming licensed in 2005, at the age of 22, she worked with Sam Meddaoui, one of the nations foremost Century 21 agents. Here she worked extensively in New Homes and Residential Resale and began to hone her knowledge and passions for negotiating and customer service.
From 2007 to 2010 Desirée worked with Winnipeg RE/MAX agent Larry Kimacovich. In 2010 she became an independent agent within the RE/MAX system. In 2015 she left RE/MAX and spent a year with Royal LePage. She then made a move to a smaller brokerage, Cornerstone Properties Inc.. In 2017 she was surprised to learn that Cornerstone would be merging with Century 21. Rather then returning to the major-brokerage system she chose to continue working with a boutique style company and signed on with Powell Property Group. By teaming with Powell Property Group Desirée has counsel from one of the Provinces most knowledgeable and experienced real estate brokers, David Powell, who has aided her in ensuring that her services are industry compliant, client-centric and cutting edge.
For the duration of her career Desirée has maintained a curious, creative and inventive mindset. She actively trains in business and real estate sales and participates in programs with numerous real estate trainers. She was chairperson of the RE/MAX Group Advertising Fund, has sat on numerous committees at the Winnipeg Real Estate board, including Co-Chair of the Sales Division Executive Council and was a Director on Winnipeg REALTORS® Board of Directors. She attended Harvard Law School's Program on Negotiation for an intensive negotiation summit with some of the most illustrious negotiators in the world.
