The way in which real estate transactions occur is undergoing a fundamental shift and my philosophy and systems reflect the reality of that shift…the business is about relationships, not transactions. I work very hard to develop strong relationships with everyone I work with and to maintain those relationships over the years.
I have a deep connection to the community and its citizens. Primarily due to the active lifestyle I lead, I tend to participate in groups that reflect this focus. I was a member of the Collingwood Parks, Recreation and Culture Advisory Group for many years and was a board member, and Chair-Person of the Collingwood Information Centre. More recently I am a founding Director of the Collingwood Dragon Boat and Canoe Club and continue to this day as the Paddle Camp Director.
I love to take clients on tours through the countryside to show them all that we have to offer. I truly believe that Collingwood and the Blue Mountains is the best place in Ontario to live!
What did you do before real estate?
Prior to being a Realtor I spent my entire career working for various social service organizations, primarily in the field of employment counselling. It culminated in a company I founded where we provided counselling services on behalf of the Federal Government.
What is your favourite place you have travelled to?
Killarney Provincial Park for solitude, incredible canoeing and fishing. Costa Rica for amazing white water kayaking. Limoges, France to visit my brother and take in the local culture. Ecuador to explore the rainforest. The Pyranees in Spain and France for some of the best cycling in the world.
What do you love about being a REALTOR®?
Call me crazy but I love the fact that every day in my business is different! Every person’s situation presents a unique set of challenges and every real estate transaction is different from the last. It requires flexibility and resilience and I thrive on it!
