Having grown up in the suburbs of the GTA, our friends and family all thought we were crazy when my wife and I bought a hobby farm with a 154 year old farmhouse in an unknown (to them) town called Tamworth, Ontario. Fast forward a few years, countless renovations, various pets, livestock with endless adventures and life in the country is something we continue to love.
After working in several different sales and marketing roles, selling everything from travel to cars, the draw and challenge of a career in real estate was one I knew was right for me and my family.
This love of rural living is something I am lucky translate into a career and share with my clients as they search for their first country home, cottage or farm. From exploring the acreage of a potential new property to boat rides on a new lake or simply getting lost on the backroads when GPS doesn’t work are all a part of the adventure I’m proud to enjoy with those who enjoy this different pace of living.
As a REALTOR®, my first priority is to make my clients happy, plain and simple. I value the trust my clients place in me and I strive every day to exceed their expectations. I listen to my clients wants and needs to achieve the best outcome in every transaction and I strive to ensure that the home buying or selling process is fun, easy and stress-free. My clients can count on me at any time of any day.
A little about myself; I live in the West end of Kingston with my husband, 2 dogs and cat. We relocated here a few years years ago on a Military posting and have stayed here ever since. I fell in love with Kingston the moment I moved here and that passion for this area inspired me to help others call Kingston and area home. Prior to entering into real estate, I was a Court Officer with the Ontario Provincial Police for over a decade. The skills I obtained during that time including; strong and effective verbal and written communication skills, negotiating strategies and the ability to be tactful, patient and courteous while providing a high level of customer service have proven to be invaluable and have contributed to my continued success. When I am not assisting my clients I can be found spending time with my family, hiking or enjoying a cold glass of wine with friends on a patio downtown.
So whether you’re planning your house hunting trip (I am a certified Brookfield relocation specialist), looking to purchase your dream home, cottage or investment property, or sell one of your own, I am here for you. With award-winning service you can trust, I promise to help you reach your real estate goals!
