1. What do you like the most about living in Southern Georgian Bay?

It is a wonderful place to raise a family! The opportunity to raise your kids with an appreciation for nature, for growing your own food or supporting your local farmers is just fantastic. This is also a very active community, with endless opportunities to bike, hike, paddleboard, ski, etc.

2. What makes you tick?

Coffee, ha! That and my two small kids, so sometimes that is what keeps me awake during the day! It may sound corny but I LOVE to help people find a home. Especially families like myself – it is just such a wonderful feeling to know they will enjoy that home in this wonderful community for years to come.

3. What are you most looking forward to this spring?

Personally – getting outside with the kids, getting my vegetable garden up and running for the season, and the start of my tennis season. Professionally – LISTINGS! Our market is so low on inventory we don’t have anything to sell buyers looking for property! I hope we see a good volume of properties come on the market this Spring/Summer, so I can help more of families find their new homes.

4. Why did you choose to work in Real Estate?

I like working with people. I have worked in marketing & hospitality throughout my career and always enjoy meeting new people, hearing about their experiences and ultimately, helping them reach their goals, whatever they may be. Real estate is a great way to do that. Of course there is also the family connection – my dad has been enjoying a career in real estate the past dozen years and it was a great opportunity to join his business and have the team support I need to have this career while raising my kids.

5. How would you describe your personality in 3 words?

I am terrible at those types of questions! (Team Take: Smart, Funny, Thoughtful)

6. Why should someone work with you?

Because I am honest, I work hard, I like to have fun while I work, and I will make their real estate goals my priority.

7. What is your spirit animal? / celebrity doppleganger

I don’t know! (Team Take: Giraffe. Because she WILL stick her neck out for you!)

8. What is your decor style?

I am all over the place – southern homes with big wrap around porches and rocking chairs, to ranch bungalows in a mid-century modern style.

9.Homeowner tip?

Keep up with general maintenance. It’s so easy to let it slip and say you’ll get to it later, but it makes a huge difference when Buyers look at your home to see a track record of the home being well maintained.

10. Market Advice – why should you put your home on the market RIGHT NOW?

Inventory is at an all-time low. It is a Seller’s Market – this is your opportunity to sell your home for top dollar! Find out what your home is worth by completing this home value request form and we can help you find out if now is the right time for you to put your home on the market.
