Marilyn Wilson Dream Properties: Philanthropy through the Dreamproperties Foundation


Marilyn Wilson is a well-known residential realtor and entrepreneur whose passion and enthusiasm for the Ottawa community extends well beyond the world of real estate.

Born in Toronto, Wilson has been in the business for more than 29 years and owns her own brokerage, Marilyn Wilson Dream Properties Inc. / Christie’s International Real Estate, which caters to buyers and sellers of luxury residential real estate in the National Capital Region. Not only does she rank among the top real estate agents in Canada, but she is also a huge supporter of the community.

Dream Properties Foundation

In addition to her record-breaking sales across the City, Wilson has contributed to Ottawa through founding and giving via the Dream Properties Foundation, which she created in 2010. The Foundation focuses on education, health initiatives and the arts.

“We’ve chosen causes that resonate with us,” says Reba Wilson, Director of Marketing and Strategic Development and Sales Representative at Marilyn Wilson Dream Properties® Inc. “We really believe in the quality of amenities in Ottawa and we want to lend a hand in improving our community.”

Marilyn Wilson believes that as a business owner, she has a responsibility to be a community leader. That means her philanthropy goes beyond sponsorship. She and Reba volunteer their time and energy with various charities and philanthropic causes such as Dining with the Ambassadors (Marilyn) and The Ottawa Viennese Ball and the Art Gallery of Ontario (Reba). Marilyn has always been a champion of philanthropic causes and was the pioneer real estate sponsor for Ashbury College and Elmwood School.
