It's said that the luckiest people in the world are those who love to go to work every day. Because I never tire of meeting new people and problem solving unique challanges, it makes me one of the luckiest people around.
Licensed in 1983, I am one of the longest serving Realtors with a thorough knowledge of real estate in Barrie today. Of my 30+ years as a Realtor, 23 of them have been spent in Barrie and the surrounding area. My experience includes residential sales, condos and detached homes, land development, new home construction and property investment throughout southern Ontario.
An early adapter of technology, My early internet marketing was featured in the Toronto Star. I also appeared on the TV show MONEYSENSE with host Ken Reid. While embracing technology as a tool to help communicate with clients and market listings, I also believe in old-fashioned activities like answering my phone, listening carefully, and being responsive to a client's wants, needs, questions, and concerns. This tried and true approach is the reason every client has my cell number - so I can be reached at any time. I can negotiate any deal and my advocacy skills when representing my clients is second to none. My first loyalty is always to my client, who frequently testify to my dependable, reliable and sincere attitude.
In 2000, I was President of the Barrie District Association of Realtors, and served on the Board of Directors for five years. I am a member of RECO, OREA and CREA. My sales achievements have been recognized by Re/Max Atlantic and Re/Max International, and include the Lifetime Achievement Award, Hall of Fame, President's Club, 100% Club, Platinum Club and Chairmans Club (top 1% across Canada).
The growth in the boomer market for people downsizing motivated me to seek my Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES®) designation in 2009. This designation has provided me with a unique education for the needs of seniors and junior seniors who wish to make lifestyle changes. I was born and raised in Ireland and have lived in Canada since 1976.
