I’ve called Wellington County home for over 15 years… from country living in Eramosa , a ‘southy’ near our university.. (before there was a ‘way’ southy) to now residing in the downtown area. I know Guelph and all of its little pockets, and there are a lot of them. Our pockets have pockets. I’ve most likely been up and down every street in Guelph while running my own business in the home renovation industry for over 10 years. I built that business on hard work, trust and an attention to detail…. I now bring that everyday as a realtor. I know houses, I love houses. Half of my business was getting homes ready for market to maximize the investment on a variety of budgets.
Instinctively I don’t like being ‘sold’ on anything. It bothers me the amount of useless junk we are bombarded with on a daily basis - I can’t stand commercials, I have trouble at the drive thru… No I don’t need a donut with that… but I will take one, sour cream glazed thanks. So when I was approached about becoming a realtor I wasn’t sure it would be for me, the suits, the SUV- I kept my truck, and own a suit now, but prefer boardies and flip flops- but I knew I loved houses, buying, selling, fixing them up for myself and my clients and it's actually been an easy transition that’s brought a new spark into my life and lit a fire of motivation and dedication. I’ve bought and sold for years prior to becoming a Realtor®.. fixer uppers, rental properties sometimes with and sometimes without a Realtor®. I’ve learned what I like, what I don’t like, what works and what doesn’t. I've also learned that in today’s market you need an inside guy that actually is looking out for your best interests. Through these experiences my new career was being waved in front of my face and I knew the realtor I wanted to become.
I love calling Guelph and Wellington county area home, it really only needs an ocean… and I’m working on that. If you're leaving, let's use the strategies that will get you top dollar- but know that most likely, you’ll be back. If you are joining us or just moving around, you’ll learn it has a great heart with a community that’s full of surprises… the music, food, Hillside festival!
