Shannon Unger
Broker of Record

I have lived in North Bay all of my life, I love the area, we have so much to offer. When I started selling real estate about 20 years ago, I found a home for my passion. Helping people. Real Estate allows me to do this in many ways, by helping you find a home or an investment. As well, by realizing that investment one day. My passion for Real Estate and the opportunity for personal and professional growth will help you and our community Service that puts you first.
