Why do I love my job?

I am obsessed with houses – I always have been. Helping people find the right one for them never gets old.

What do I like best about the Toronto real estate market?

I love the predictable unpredictability. It keeps me on my toes, but I wouldn’t choose to live or work anywhere else.

What neighbourhood do I live in? What makes it groovy?

The Beach – Love the houses. Love the vibe. Love the people. It’s always been home for me.

When I’m not working, you can find me….

Hanging out with my daughter, running on the beach or cooking!!!

The kind of clients I tend to work with…

I generally work with clients who need a REALTOR and a hand to hold. I’m not sure how that happened… maybe for my next career I will be a therapist (ha)!

What neighbourhoods do I often work in?

I’m most often working to find people homes, or sell homes, in: Scarborough, East York, the Beach, the Upper Beach, and the downtown core of ‘the six’.

What type of properties do I love selling?

I love selling the kinds of houses I’d love to buy. I look for character, good bones, and homes that look like they could tell a good story.

Why am I the right agent to guide you in buying a new home?

I’m the right agent for you, if you want someone who cares about finding the perfect home for you. I’m going to make sure you don’t just buy ‘a house’ – but that you buy YOUR house. And I’m pretty good at telling the difference.

Why am I the right agent to sell your home with!?

Probably because I get that selling a house also means leaving a home. I’m there to help with all the joyful and messy details involved in selling a home (for top dollar). Having been through the process, I understand that this isn’t just a transaction for you and I’m here to help make the transition as seamless as possible.
