Our Beginning


Catherine E. Harvey

1926 – 2019

Catherine E. Harvey, founding president, recognized the need for a licensed real estate broker in Victoria County, Cape Breton, and established her company before 1970. Through the years, Harvey Realties Ltd. has continued to provide well-informed, reliable service to a network of local, American and European clients. We are proud to be part of our Cape Breton communities, their growth and prosperity.

Elizabeth Anne Menzies

When Betty joined Harvey Realties Ltd. in 2005, she was no stranger to the company. Betty watched her mother Catherine E. Harvey and sister Cathy enjoy their professional growth in the real estate industry while she concentrated on raising her family and pursuing a career in public education. Betty acquired her license as a REALTOR®, and was a very valued and productive member of our team for eighteen years!  Betty’s hard work continued to maintain the solid reputation for professionalism and dedication to clients that is the trademark of Harvey Realties Ltd.  We thank Betty very much, and wish her all the very best in her now official retirement!
