“I’d like to help my clients understand their needs and what is possible. With my understanding of urban planning, I can help them gain an understanding of what the potential is for the property.”
You need to know your area, you need to know your neighbourhoods, you have to have an understanding of what clicks in that community. I’ve lived in Toronto my entire life, my family’s been in Toronto since the turn of the last century. I guess there’s something nice about the stability of being in that same area all of the time. To have a connection to that area, to watch how it changes and how it grows. I have always found that fascinating.
My interest in geography and history began in my 2nd year of university, I took a course in the history of cities and urbanization, it was just the most fascinating course. That’s when I decided that urban planning was the field that I wanted to go into and real estate was something that I was very interested in. Ultimately I joined Sotheby’s International Realty Canada.
Sotheby’s felt the right fit because I found people that I could relate to, that had the same work ethic that I have, who were just as committed to a certain level of professionalism that I strive to achieve.
I’d like to help my clients understand their needs and what is possible. With my understanding of urban planning, I can help them gain an understanding of what the potential is for the property. For me it’s all about the client, and it’s about satisfying their needs and making sure that their needs are met but completely met throughout the whole process.
When you have a good client it becomes a lifetime relationship, and that part is the best part of this job.
