In December of 1989 I left my position of running the mortgage division of a Scotiabank Home Branch and from then until 1994 I worked in the mortgage brokerage business which included running my own company. I was proud to create a business that was built on 100% referrals.
In 1993 while still running my mortgage business and a family of 3, I decided to take on another challenge and obtain my real estate license…… and never looked back!
After starting in real estate, I started learning my trade from my husband Thomas who had been working in the business for 15 years by that time.
We grew very quickly from a team of Tom, myself and an assistant to having 13 Buyer Specialists and 3 full time assistants.
We have been honoured for many years by RE/MAX of being in the Top 10 Teams in Canada and in the Top 100 Teams internationally.
Recently, Tom and I have been called upon to share our knowledge with other Realtors. We’ve travelled to Vienna-Austria, Istanbul-Turkey, Madrid-Spain and London-England for RE/MAX and to several cities and towns across the province for the Ontario Real Estate Association.
In 2013 our son Rylie finished up at the University of British Columbia, got his real estate licence and joined our Team.
Since Tom and I joined in business together, along with our Team, we’ve contributed on behalf of our buyers and sellers just OVER $100,000 to the Children’s Miracle Network which helps conquer childhood diseases and treat our kids at Toronto’s Sick Kids Hospital when they need it. Our goal is to bring that total contribution up to $130,000 by the end of 2015!
Twenty years later, with many successful negotiations under my belt, I still get up every day loving the real estate business and thinking … “Who is going to benefit from my help today”
Maybe it will be you
