Meet Jenny Maycock, Broker
My Life Before Real Estate
Right before I made the “jump” to real estate I was working in client service at a marketing and communications agency. And before that… I was a server at Earls, and a Production Assistant for CBC Sports — which is a more resume-proper way to say that I brought Ron and Don their coffee on Saturday nights during Hockey Night in Canada. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been obsessed with houses. I used to browse real estate listings for fun in high school. Yes, high school. I always wanted to be a REALTOR (but my mom thought it was probably a good idea that I go to university first). Fast forward a few years…after a business degree from Laurier, pursuing further education in Public Relations, and working in PR for some pretty high-profile clients like Netflix…it was still a career dream lingering in the back of my mind. And, as it turns out… Mom was right. All that schooling and work experience set me up pretty perfectly for a successful career in real estate.
Real estate is a lot of people’s plan B, but it’s always been the dream job for me.
What I Love About Being a REALTOR
Being so extremely fortunate to wake up in the morning and be excited about what I do for a living. It’s a career where every day is different, there are endless opportunities for skills advancement and you get out of it what you put into it. Plus, I get to work with some pretty amazing people along the way.
Why I Love Helping Buyers
I have so many interests that revolve around homes: interior design, architecture, renovating, home organization, green living, cooking… I could keep going here. So naturally, touring homes online and in-person EVERY DAY is at the top of my list for favourite job perk. Also and most importantly, I feel helping people make better decisions about where they live is a HUGE, if not the greatest contribution to their quality of life. I feel honoured to be a part of that process.
Favourite Buyer Story
Just recently helping my buyers score their dream home in their dream neighbourhood for quite a dreamy price (significantly under asking)! Negotiations were tough and spanned a couple days but they came out on top in the end and I couldn’t be more happy for them!
Why I Love helping Sellers
My previous career in marketing and communications has really primed me well to represent sellers. I feel in my element when planning marketing angles, strategizing on price and consulting on how to best prep and stage homes before they hit the market.
Favourite Seller Story
A little nutty to manage at the time… but on the offer day for one of my listings I received about 100 phone calls before 2 pm from agents with interested buyers. Worth it in the end as it translated to 10 offers and an amazing sale price for my client!
My Life Outside of Real Estate
Outside of real estate… I spend most of my time at parks walking the dog and taking care of my 1 year old. They keep me busy, on my feet and bring me endless joy!
You’ll Enjoy Working with Me If…
…you appreciate knowing the details, having a thorough analysis and someone on your side who is 100% invested in achieving your goals. I can be known to spend hours poring over the numbers, chatting through strategies and making a game plan to get my clients to where they want to go.

Too many I love to choose from but top of mind are…
Dream neighbourhood — The Kingsway: love the old English architechure & winding streets. I like to drive around the hood and peep all the Christmas decorations during the holidays.
Roncesvalle: maybe it is my Polish roots and always wanting to have lunch at Cafe Polonez, but overall this laid back community feels very welcoming!
High Park: Anything within walking distance to High Park (the actual park). Love the off leash dog trails here.
Riverdale: lovely family homes and the view of downtown Toronto from the top of Riverdale Park never gets old. Bonus: yummy Greek food is close by!
