Some career paths follow a simple trajectory. Then, there’s mine. I was a creative junkie from day one. After achieving considerable success as a published writer and fine art photographer, I transitioned into an executive role in the publishing industry. I spent a number of years in the print and online media industry before venturing into the world of real estate.
I’m a Guelph native, but life has taken me on a few twists and turns. I lived in the United States for nearly 10 years, and have travelled quite extensively. Some years ago, I returned home to plant roots and I have no regrets.
I try very carefully to listen more than I speak. I work hard at being patient and making no assumptions. And I always – and I mean always – put my clients’ interests ahead of my own.
I like to think that I bring a heightened level of organization and preparedness to the profession. And, believing in the importance of continuing education, I have sought advanced accreditations for buyer representation, as well as a commitment to better understanding green building aspects, as they relate to buyers and sellers.
On the personal side, I’m a risk taker. I’m a rider of motorcycles. I’m a champion for animal welfare. (Granted, I’m also a champion for wine and cheese.) I’m a mother. I’m committed to always giving more than I take. And that last bit, that’s the bit that really matters. #abundance
Knowledge is power and
I love to educate my clients.
Buying a rural property was a dream of ours, but we were new to the process. Kelly’s ability to guide us through the steps and help us conduct due diligence was so valuable. Thank you!
As a property investor, I turned to Kelly for guidance on selecting the right home. Her knowledge of leasing agreements, the Residential Tenancies Act, and the investor market in Guelph was truly impressive.
Kelly’s approach to listing my Guelph home for sale was very thoughtful and organized. Her communication during the process was outstanding and she fought hard to get us top dollar!
