Real estate was the obvious career choice after growing up with both parents in the business since I was young. I started selling in 1986 and by 1987 had my real estate broker’s license. While working in real estate it was easy to continue to be involved in the community to help make my home area the best it could be. I have been involved with coaching minor fastball, the Aylmer Aces Jr B hockey club, the arena steering committee and as part of the initial board member of our successful Aylmer and Area Chamber of Commerce. In 1995, after being successful working for other companies, 5 co-workers and I opened Showcase East Elgin Realty Inc, brokerage in order to best serve our clients, customers and community. We are pleased to continue providing our services and thank you for helping us continue our great success in selling real estate in our area. In 2012 I obtained the Senior Real Estate Specialist designation (SRES) to be prepared for the increased number of people looking to change their living arrangements as they approach or reach retirement and beyond as needs change.
In addition to my Real Estate Broker’s license, I have also attained my Certified Staging Professional designation. The CSP training has helped me to better serve my selling clients by suggesting ways to make their home stand out from the rest, often through as simple and inexpensive techniques such as furniture arrangement, painting and decluttering (pre-packing). For buyers, I’m able to make suggestions on how they can make dramatic improvements to a home they might be interested in purchasing and bring out the best in their new home.
Repeat customers and referrals have been the key to my success and I ask that you have me “put my proven experience to work” for you.
