I have extensive and successful background in sales and marketing and for many years I traveled throughout Canada and the US speaking professionally on business and personal development. All that changed and I found myself the single mom of 3 beautiful young children. I stopped jet setting the globe and decided to pursue my love of music. What had once been a professional hobby became a successful country music recording career. As an independent recording artist I recorded with super star Martina McBride, did a Christmas duet with Jason McCoy and performed as an opening act and headliner across Ontario at fairs, festivals and events. I had some success at Canadian country radio and was nominated for several CCMA’s but this still meant travelling more than I was willing to do. I started looking for a career that could combine my life experience and my love of being with people but would allow me to be with my kids. I also wanted something that would challenge and excite me but allow me to making a difference in peoples lives…and I wanted to pay for my kids university when they got there! That is how I started in real estate many years ago and from my very first year, I have loved it!
Creativity, motivation, loyalty, excellence, compassion, understanding, dedication, persistence and thorough knowledge are the hallmarks of my business. Your home purchase or sale is not just a transaction to me, it is an event that has a great affect on your life and I treat it that way. I believe that LUXURY IS A FEELING, NOT A PRICE POINT and I treat every client, regardless of what they are buying or selling, as the VIP that they are!
I constantly add to my qualifications with continuing education and certifications, earning several accreditations and awards. I study the markets in real time to maintain a deep understanding of what is really going on in the real estate world. When I am not helping clients buy or sell homes, I am probably hanging out with my 3 young grand children, my now grown children, travelling with my husband, boating, camping, snow mobiling or loving on every dog I come across!
I am passionate about my family, fitness and real estate. My approach to all 3 of these things is the same basic principle, a total commitment to doing my very best at all times.
I’ve had a front row seat to watch Cathy work for many years and I’ve learned a lot about what it means to have an unrelenting work ethic and integrity in all you do. As a result, I am excited to partner with her and her team and I bring my commitment to the highest level of personal service and continued learning.
When I am not working with clients, I am either with my family, friends or in the gym working out. Fitness is a way of life for me and I am proud to also be a fitness mentor and all natural body builder. In my first year of body building I entered my first competition and placed in the top 3 of my group qualifying for nationals. Unfortunately covid prevented that national competition from happening in 2020, however, it was a fantastic experience because I set out to do something with a singular focus in a very short time and I made it happen.
As my business is growing, I'm approaching it with the same focus. Helping more people have a successful and stress reduced real estate experience is a primary focus for me.
