Having bought, renovated and sold over a dozen homes in Victoria, I understand the process:
from creating a strategy, choosing a Realtor, staging a property, and understanding contracts
through to negotiating a successful Purchase or Sale. It can be quite daunting!
As a MLS Award Winning Realtor, I work with people who are "Rightsizing":
making decisions that affect both lifestyle changes and long-term economic security.
I hold my SRES (Seniors Real Estate Specialist) and CNE (Certified Negotiation Expert)
Designations as well as an Interior Design Diploma.
On a personal note, I was born on Saltspring Island, in the same room as my father
and grandfather before me. Raised in Victoria, I first attended Norfolk House School then
became one of the first 35 girls to attend SMU (St. Michael's University School) for grades 11-12.
My University years took me to Vancouver, Los Angeles and finally Halifax,
where I majored in Political Science and Economics.
I was licensed as a Realtor in 2001, Royal Lepage. After 3 years I decided to
take a leave of absence while my two children were middle teenagers, happy
to be fully involved in their busy schedules. I was not far from real estate however,
taking my AutoCad courses at Camosun College by night while renovating and selling
my own real estate projects by day.
I have been happily re-licensed since 2011.
I am the very proud Mother to Kel (32) and Mika (28) and recently became a grandmother
to Freya (11 months). When I am not working I can be found on the squash or tennis court,
golf course, cycling, or navigating along our magnificent west coast.
