Born and raised in Ancaster, and having lived in several local communities, I have deep roots in the Greater Hamilton Area. After graduating from McMaster University, I have worked in the Real Estate Law, Administration and Human Resources fields, affording me the solid analytical and communication skills required to negotiate an ever-changing real estate world. Over the last decade my husband and I have successfully bought, renovated and sold homes, working towards our dream of country living. Our country dream is now reality, and it was a natural progression for me to turn my zest for real estate into my career.
My lifelong dedication to helping others has perfectly matched me with the real estate world. Nothing drives me more than my desire to help someone find their dream home – whether it’s a starter home, a fixer-upper, a quiet countryside property, or an urban condo downtown – I will not rest until I have secured the ideal property for you! To me, it’s more than real estate. It’s about helping my clients change their lives and fulfill their dreams. My ability to match people with their perfect home is unparalleled, due to my familiarity with the area’s markets and trends, coupled with my aptitude to understand clients’ needs.
Real estate transactions can be emotionally-charged, stressful situations, and I've made it my mission to alleviate uncertainty and worry for my clients wherever possible. A value-added service that I offer is access to my hand-picked list of trusted professionals who are available to assist you with any of your home buying, selling or renovation needs. From cleaners, packers and mortgage agents to lawyers, landscapers and home inspectors – whatever the task, I have someone who can deliver positive results!
When I am not out working for you, I enjoy spending time with my husband at our country home, wood-working, hiking, and looking after our growing family of animals including dogs, cats and chickens. I have a keen interest in interior designing and decorating, and can assist clients to get their home "list ready" to maximize impact for prospective buyers. I am also an avid horseback rider, and possess a breadth of knowledge about the equestrian world to aid you in your search for hobby farm or equestrian property.
“Home” is about that feeling you get when you walk through the door of “the one”, instantly envisioning your life unfolding there. Let me help you write the next chapter of your story – to sell your house, purchase your dream home, or secure an investment to grow your real estate portfolio.
