About Us

Bob Bunker,

My Experience“While my name might indicate I have been selling real estate for 50+ years (or hosting a morning game show), the truth is that I have been selling real estate in the Kitchener-Waterloo-Cambridge area now for over a decade. I have been involved in almost all aspects of real estate during this time: residential resale, condos, new builds, commercial real estate and working with first-time home buyers, seasoned investors and everyone in between.”
My Approach“Real estate done differently. I don’t believe in shortcuts. I believe in working hard, focusing on the big and the small details and investing in long-term relationships. I believe in a strong marketing approach for all my sellers to expose their homes to the most number of buyers and I believe in finding the homes that meet the needs and wants of any buyer.”
My Difference“My difference stems from my experience. My previous experience has become complementary to helping my clients in all of their real estate purchases. My experience in finance at John Hancock Financial helped with investors, my time as a border officer provided me insight to reading people during negotiations and growing up on a farm taught me the value of hard work and putting in long hours.
I am also a strong supporter of everything local and an advocate for the Waterloo region. Watching it grow over the past ten years and knowing what’s in store for the next ten makes it an exciting time to help others move into the community and invest in the region.”

Jacquie Bunker,
CFA, HBA, Realtor®

My Experience“With a background in finance, I spent a number of years working on Bay Street in Investment Banking and then Mergers & Acquisitions for a large, international company, where I helped negotiate multi-million dollar transactions. I graduated from Richard Ivey School of Business at Western University and went on to obtain my CFA® designation. I take pride in being able to bring my business and financial background to real estate, advising clients in a professional manner on one of the biggest purchases they will likely ever make.
From the moment I moved to KW, I knew the Region was special. From the friendly faces at the grocery store, to people actually letting you in when you’re driving, to the incredibly talented pool of individuals, I see Waterloo Region as one of the best places to live and I’m so excited to see it continue to flourish.”
My Approach“It’s simple. Real estate is a long term game. We all remember the incredible service we had at a restaurant, our favourite store and the cafe down the street. That person either went the extra mile to make your experience truly enjoyable, they followed up in a timely manner on a request you had, they were knowledgeable and competent at what they were doing and they were pleasant, honest and trustworthy. I strive to provide a similar experience to all of my clients.”
My Difference“Whether it be listening closely to your wish lists and deal breakers, pointing out the pros and cons of a particular property, helping you ensure your home is showing its best features, drafting and negotiating offers and getting you the best terms and conditions, I believe it’s all in the detail. I care about providing you with the best possible experience.I truly believe that knowledge is key which is why I work tirelessly to know the ins and outs about the different markets within the Waterloo Region: what’s happening where, which building is going up when, which neighbourhoods have the best schools, where the best places are to invest, etc. I read papers, speak with industry experts and analyze the market, all so you don’t have to (unless you really want to!).
I love numbers! I love analyzing numbers, creating models and helping investors choose between Investment A and Investment B. Investing in real estate can require large amounts of capital and I take that very seriously. I genuinely enjoy helping clients understand returns, leverage, risks and rewards.”

Alexandra Bunker,

My Experience“After completing an undergraduate degree in 2011, I began working at a start-up import company in Toronto. My primary role was to manage the supply chain. However, as the only full-time employee, I was working on quality control one day, procurement the next, writing content for the website the next, and so on. Every day was different. I worked on million-dollar accounts in North America, travelled to Central and South America, and certified the company with a coveted U.S. Customs and Border Protection program. It was an extremely rewarding experience to be part of a flourishing company.
Eventually, I decided to go back to school to revisit a childhood dream of a career in healthcare. In 2014, I attended the University of Toronto for a professional Master’s degree. I gained valuable experience in areas of women’s mental health, inpatient burn and trauma care, alternative communication, hospital administration, and research. Although I learned a lot, I wondered whether it was ultimately the right career choice for me.
I went on to start a family and move to Kitchener-Waterloo. I fell in love with the way people smiled at each other on the streets and trails, the movement to support local businesses, and the strong sense of community. I knew instantly that this was a great place to call home.
I did some freelance work and eventually some part-time administrative work with Bob Bunker Homes. Real estate stuck with me. It is a perfect balance of everything I love – research, planning, creativity, and, most of all, client care. I am grateful that I found my way here and to this community. I am so excited to be a part of the TrilliumWest team and to support clients during one of the most rewarding experiences of their lives.”
My ApproachRepresenting my clients’ best interests is at the core of my approach. I believe this is achieved by active listening, communicating quickly and effectively, providing thoughtful advice, and being thorough and accountable. Having worked in some form of customer service role since the age of sixteen, I have an ingrained sense of service to others and the drive to see my clients happy.
My DifferenceOrganization: My endeavours – from running my own dog and house sitting business in undergrad to wearing multiple hats at a startup – have demanded strong organizational skills. I have a lot of practice at being organized; but mostly, I just love it.
Loyalty: When someone puts their trust in me, I take it seriously. I will do everything I can to act on their behalf to achieve their goals.
Discipline: I grew up on a farm in rural Ontario, so early morning chores were the norm. Although I did not appreciate this back then, I do now, as this discipline has undoubtedly helped me to achieve what I have today.”
