Why Real Estate?

I started at about 12 when my parents were too busy working & we needed to find a bigger house so I got the job of finding one.  I've always been interested in architecture & design but real estate is about relationships.

Fortunately I've spent a lot of time in sales & marketing which is figuring out what people need & want-good preparation for being a Realtor!

What's the part of real estate I like most, other than the people?

Negotiating.  Why?  To me, it's the challenge of creating common ground so that it's a win/win.  1 party wants to sell & the other wants to buy so it's finding that path to agreement.

What's a quality I use most in real estate?

I'm pretty calm.  Real estate is stressful for Buyers & Sellers-who needs a stressed out Realtor??  Organization, preparation, & knowledge take a lot of the stress out of the process.

What's something I say to my clients most often?

You can only control what you can control so focus on that.  ...and of course...Let me take care of that!

Skills or training that I have found useful?

I completed the CTI professional coaching program in 2019 & find that training invaluable working with people.

What do I do to recharge-real estate can be stressful?

Regular escapes with my husband & rescue dogs & daily trail & beach walks in Pt Grey rain or shine.  Family & friends-always.

I've been volunteering forever-School PACs, VSO Symphony Ball, & rescue dogs.. Giving back pays big dividends.  It doesn't take a lot to make someone else's life better!
