At least that's what my customers say about me. Maybe it's the fact that I was raised by Dutch immigrants who survived the war and then moved to Canada with two small children and a few bucks in their pocket and went on to build a successful Dairy Farm operation and raise a brood of eight. As the youngest, I grew up learning to work hard.
After years as a farm girl, I made the move to the city, living in both Toronto and Montreal much of my young adult life,
making me a bit of a city and a country mouse.
I got my degree in journalism and communications in Montreal and, after years of working as a freelance writer and relationship advice columnist, my and my husband Daniel -- a professional photographer -- moved from Toronto to our cottage on Paudash Lake, trading in our urban lifestyle for a life in the country.
The decision to move from freelance journalism to real estate made perfect sense as it demands the same self-discipline and dedicated work ethic. My excellent research and problem solving skills get put to use every day in real estate. If you have a question, I'll find the answer. I also happen to think I'm a pretty good “people person” and can get along with just about anyone, I work hard on making my relationships with my clients both comfortable and easy. I try to focus on getting to know you and your needs, not trying to “sell” you something. After two decades as an advise columnist, I think I've developed a keen ability to read people and to address your wants and concerns. I use these skills to match people with their perfect home or their home with the perfect buyer. I would love the chance to find your perfect match!
