Jess Poland
Phone: 226-780-0202

Jess grew up in a family of Realtors in the small town of Dunnville, Ontario. She moved to the city of Guelph over a decade ago to attend university, where she met her husband, Scott.  After working in Public Relations and Marketing in Toronto, and spending too much time in front of a computer screen, Jess decided it was time for a change. She and Scott took off to travel the world for two incredible years. Shortly after returning to her hometown, Jess earned her real estate license and was ready to sell. The question was – where? The moment Jess and Scott drove back to Guelph, they knew that they were home.

Jess understands the commitment needed to be successful in this business. While traveling the world, at times under challenging conditions, Jess had to overcome obstacles and easily adapt to change. She regularly employs these skills as she guides sellers and buyers through the real estate process, providing professional advice and alleviating any concerns along the way with her calm, easy manner. A mom herself, Jess understands the unique needs of families and helps to put their plans into action with patience and attention to detail.

Seeing the look on her clients faces when they realize that “this is the one” or telling them that they “got the house” are such special moments that Jess is honoured to be a part of. The best part of Real Estate for Jess is the friendship that she forms with her clients. Many of her clients are repeat or referral, which is a testament to her commitment to always providing the highest level of service.



Scott Poland
Phone: 519-837-5975

A small town guy at heart, Scott grew up in nearby St. Mary's and has proudly called Guelph his home for over 10 years.An early career in Robotics, in which he led jobs all over Europe and North America, ignited a love of travel that brought Scott all over the world for two years of backpacking with his wife, Jess. On his return, Scott pursued a life-long dream of owning his own business, opening a company that helped to reduce waste and operating costs in the hospitality industry. Scott set out to improve his client's environmental footprint while helping them stand out from the crowd, and two short years later he helped build a company with over 150 clients. Watching his wife grow her own business in real estate ultimately piqued Scott's interest and, after selling his company, he decided a career change was in order.

No matter what stage of life you're at, buying or selling a home is a huge decision with a world of factors to consider. Scott fully understands the challenges - and the opportunities - that Buyers and Sellers face in the Guelph market. He'll be there when you need him to make sure that your decisions are fully informed, that you get the best results, and that your transaction is seamless. He also has a knack for confronting obstacles in a composed, laid-back way - something you learn when you live out of a backpack, start your own business and become a father. Whatever your goal, Scott's here to guide you through the process to make sure that your choice is the right one.
