Although I grew up in a wartime bungalow in Oakville, I spent every summer in a northern Ontario shack without plumbing- by choice. This dichotomy provided me with an open mind, a deep appreciation for nature (and real estate) and the ability to see the positive in everything. Tirelessly optimistic and always thinking outside the box, I bring with me a fresh perspective, creative solutions and an adoration of Guelph.
I chose to attend the University of Guelph on a gut feeling without visiting campus. Fortunately, my gut was correct and this resulted in countless friendships, an honours degree in Biological Science with a minor in Microbiology- and a successful 7 year career in the sciences. After my first year of university I chose to make Guelph my permanent home- to leave the flash of Oakville for a true community experience. Renting in Guelph has given me the good fortune of living in 5 different Guelph neighborhoods and navigating them all via public transit. My love of nature enabled me to explore each and every green space in every neighbourhood- I’m happy to share with you the best walking/cycling trails and relaxing places to enjoy a book.
One of the things I really love about Guelph, (aside from the greenspaces, walking trails, rivers, campus) is the success enjoyed by hardworking business owners. Living in Guelph for over 10 years, it is thrilling to watch your favourite businesses grow and thrive over the years- and ultimately, give back to the community. Many Guelph businesses have their owners working behind the cash, running the classes, providing the services. Coming from the ‘big box’ life of Oakville it is amazing how positivity and community involvement can influence those around you and consistently make Guelph one of the best places to live year after year.
With extensive experience in research, report writing and statistical analysis, I am able to truly assess Guelph’s neighborhoods and provide clients with succinct, useful statistically significant data to help you understand what’s happening in the Guelph market real-time. Today’s home buyers and sellers are educated- let my data speak for itself and assure you that listing your home with me is the gimmick-free, fact-based solution to an unpredictable market. I chose a degree in science because I wanted a challenge. That desire for hard results has followed me to real estate. I am dedicated to working HARD for my clients and will prove this to you time and time again.
Flexibility and Adaptability
That town and country dual life, paired with a Regional Arts high school diploma majoring in Drama, helps me fit into all kinds of situations with people from all walks of life. I can find common ground with just about anybody, which helps me to diffuse intense situations and tactfully re-direct focus to the big picture. I am organized and attentive with razor-sharp attention to detail. I truly enjoy being one step ahead- being thoroughly prepared helps satisfy my drive to be your favourite realtor experience.
My goal is to get to know you as a client so I can best understand your needs. That’s why I call myself your friend in real estate- all clients are treated with the dignity, respect and attentiveness of a true friend. Although I am a newer agent, I am bound and determined to be the best Realtor® experience you’ve had. My personal drive to find the perfect pairing of home and buyer is what drove me to real estate. I truly believe your perfect home in your budget is out there, and I intend to help you find it. I also seek to change the cultural stigma around Realtors®- which is why choosing TW was a no-brainer. The #TWDifference is readily apparent from the moment you step in the door. TW is driven by ethics, morals, and a sincere respect for our legal obligations to our clients. In an unpredictable market where it seems like ‘anything goes’, we Realtors® at TW hold ourselves to an even higher standard.
