I started my real estate career as a property manager not by plan but through necessity. While in design school I told my incompetent landlord that he either hires me to run the building or I was moving out. Following that introduction to real estate I have accumulated considerable experience in the acquisition & disposition of personal real estate assets & as development manager analyzing many properties and the development of pro-forma for new construction.
Prior to becoming a Realtor I studied Applied Mathematics at The University of Western Ontario & Fashion Design/Apparel Management at Ryerson University. I worked as an Account Executive for a high-end menswear manufacturer before starting my own technical apparel company. In addition to designing, marketing & manufacturing apparel for the outdoor lifestyle market I outfitted expeditions to the South Pole and Mount Everest & developed technical apparel for The Canadian Military.
As a Realtor I bring to my clients a unique set of skills and talents combined with business acumen. I am considered an 'outside of the box' thinker. 3M named me one of Canada's 'Movers & Shakers'. I make things happen! To me the word 'NO' is just the beginning towards achieving a satisfactory outcome.
I am a 33-year Beacher though I have lived in a number of Toronto neighbourhoods. I volunteer as a guest critic at Ryerson University School of Fashion & together with my husband, whom is an architect & our son’s members of the Antique & Classic Boat Society and improving golfers at Windermere Golf and Country Club in Muskoka. I am also actively mentoring young women entrepreneurs to assist them in navigating the often-daunting world of business.
Through the various facets of my working career I meet extraordinary and talented people that I count amongst my friends. I truly enjoy working with people to achieve a common goal.
