Guelph is more than just home, Guelph is me. My family has a long history of trades, from plumbers to barbers, and even a great uncle who painted the reformatory when it was built- he travelled by bicycle, carrying his tools of the trade balanced on his ladder. So, I guess that you could say that Guelph is in my blood. I love everything about Guelph and chose to raise my family here as well. I love this city and welcome the chance to talk to anyone about why it is a great idea to move to Guelph. While becoming a Realtor® was not a straight path, buying and selling real estate has been something that I was doing long before making it a career. But the passion for real estate started with our first flip years ago...
Being somewhat of a chronic renovator (with my husband) over the past 15 years has given me an appreciation for older homes. It also taught our daughter what a square, and various other tools are. There isn’t too much that I have not seen. The knowledge that I have accumulated over the years puts me in a position to help others with the same goals. I absolutely adore the old neighbourhoods. It is more than the tree lined streets, and fantastic front porches. It is the architecture and history that lives there. Whether it is Downtown, Exhibition Park, St. George’s Park, Sunny Acres or Riverside Park, and The Ward- these neighbourhoods have stories to tell!
I have years of experience in investment properties as well. Building a nice portfolio of properties over the years has given me insight to the investment market in Guelph. This city has plenty of opportunities for people to invest, you just have to know where to look- I can definitely help you there.
Whether it is a house to call home, or an investment property for your future, you can never go wrong with real estate.
My main intention is to understand client’s needs. Being assertive, as well as being compassionate, always friendly with a dash of humour makes me an effective advocate for my clients. Understanding their needs, putting them in the driver’s seat, while I guide and educate. Delivering all you deserve and more than you expect, helps me build relationships that last the course of time. I do not consider myself a ‘salesperson’, but more of a real estate matchmaker.
Always give more than you receive, people will notice, and respect you for it.
Although we have purchased many homes over the years, this was our first experience buying a condominium. We appreciate that Yancy took the time to listen to our concerns and answer our questions. She was warm, professional and knowledgeable. Even when we expanded our search from Guelph to Kitchener, she didn’t try to push us into anything, but gave us the time, space and information needed to explore our options. It was a pleasure working with her and we can recommend Yancy without hesitation.
