“Every time I’m meet with a new client, it’s the start of a whole new project. You’re starting a new show every time. For me that’s a big part of why I love my job so much.”
Having been adopted it is important to me to have a safe and secure environment, not only for myself but also for my family.
As a young child, my parents were looking for a home for 5 years, they decided to make a move to Oakville and I was involved going through every open house, meeting every agent, some of them really knew a lot about what they were pitching in terms of home, when I list a property it’s very important to learn every detail about that project.
You have to have a lot of dedication and a lot of passion as well for what you do, which I feel I do bring to my work here at Sotheby’s International Realty Canada as an agent. I have been in real estate for many years and I really felt that Sotheby’s was a company that really matched well with my criteria and what I want to bring to the table as an agent.
In Oakville, you have the lakefront to enjoy, there’s a lot of great park land, it’s really quite a special place with a very spirited community. It’s a beautiful beautiful place to raise your family.
I left home at the age of 11 after auditioning for the National Ballet School and being accepted in to move to Toronto, where I was enrolled in the professional dance and academic training program. It’s been great to be able to have so many neighbourhoods I know about in Toronto, but then also in my home town of Oakville.
I got to know every single alley and every perspective of the city, and all of the different neighbourhoods and also all of the different architecture that goes along with that. I love architecture and design, interior and exterior.
I do see mounting a listing a little bit like a theatrical production, your pre-production that’s sort of where you’re in your preparation mode, you’re staging the property, you’re preparing. Then when you unveil and reveal the home the show is on and you’re waiting for the critics to come and then you get a great review then you’re probably going to get some offers.
Every time I’m meet with a new client, it’s the start of a whole new project. You’re starting a new show every time. For me that’s a big part of why I love my job so much.
