Monica approaches all aspects of her life with doing her best which is how her real estate career began in 1993. She was Rookie of the Year and then number one agent for the South Shore on several occasions. She is a consistent top producer and her many past clients in Chester, Mahone Bay and along the South Shore are proof of her commitment to honesty and hard work. Her clients are her biggest fans.

Monica's success with the public comes naturally after managing a successful chain of retail shops, teaching flower design at Conestoga College and owning and operating a successful restaurant for eight years in Southern Ontario with her life partner, Bill. Under their ownership, The SunRoom Restaurant was written up in "Where To Eat in Canada" as one of Canada's best restaurants.

Monica's love of Nova Scotia began on a visit in 1990. After selling their restaurant, she and her life partner moved to "Chester Cottage" in Chester where they lived for several years and have since settled in Marriott's Cove. Bill has recently renovated a fish store on the water just outside of Mahone Bay into a cottage and a satellite office for Monica. "The Farside" cottage is where Stratford's legendary chef will occasionally hang up his fishing cap and treat friends and clients to culinary delights.

Monica is a delight to work with. Her enthusiasm and knowledge has helped many buyers find the homes they were looking for and helped sellers through a process that can sometimes be stressful.


  • "Agent extraordinaire! Monica Sontrop came highly recommended by associates in the South Shore area; however, not only did she prove her mettle, Monica, stunningly transcended all bounds of what 'Real Estate Agent' encompasses. Am resident in the US; and, was thrilled to find such a knowledgeable, responsive and adept property sale professional. Moreover, a full-service party of one property manager, home service coordinator, trouble-shooter, accounts payable and neighborhood liaison, not to mention psychologist and communications expert. Simply put, Monica's work ethic and acumen are incomparable! And her spirit, indefatigable. Further, Monica is more than highly capable and diligent - she also happens to be conversant in diplomacy and is a strong negotiator. Wow! Will use Monica for all future real estate matters."
