Since I was a little girl, I have always admired the architecture of homes with ornate arches, etched doors, beautifully landscaped yards, and pebbled driveways. I often imagined myself one day building my own dream home.
When I was 25, I was given the opportunity to finally build my vision, all while expecting my first child. My husband and I were in need of a bigger home for our growing family, but there was one catch; my husband told me that if I wanted a new home, I would have to build it myself under a certain budget. I have never been one to back down from a challenge and was determined to finish this house before my beautiful daughter arrived.
For the next few months, I poured over every design book, met with a draftsman, interviewed and hired all of the tradespeople, picked up and dropped off building materials, and spent hours at the City of Edmonton Planning Department gathering permits. Almost my entire pregnancy was spent on-site.
I finished the home just days before my daughter was born (the entire story I’ll share over coffee as it wasn’t that smooth or easy), and as I sat in the beauty of motherhood, I finally felt at home within my own etched doors and arches. This entire creative process soon turned into a passion for real estate. Since that day, my love for real estate has only grown during other home builds, which inspired my ambition to invest in properties and grow my own portfolio.
After raising my two children, I decided to take my passion for real estate one step further by obtaining my real estate licence — which is honestly my dream job! I now get to show other people the potential of every home in the hopes that they find one that fits perfectly in their own lives.
As a Realtor, I am passionate about helping new home buyers and first-time sellers understand the entire process of buying and selling a home. I explain every step of this process, from the day we list the home, to the momentous and celebratory day we sell or buy a home.
I want my clients to feel as though they are a valid part of the entire selling or buying process by offering professional advice on how to seek the most value out of their experience. I have a reputation for my keen negotiating skills, gained from remaining open and honest throughout any conversation and by offering expert advice to suit the needs of my clients over the need to push or sell a property.
I still remember the day I opened the doors to my first home and that feeling of excitement, knowing all the memories I would one day share with my family. The joy of being a part of these memories for others as well as creating a sense of excitement and anticipation for them is what keeps my passion alive in this business every day.
If you are thinking about buying or selling a home, or if you have a real estate inquiry that you would love to ask, don’t hesitate to contact me and I would be happy to see how I can best help you.
