It is said the luckiest people in the world are those who go to work every day with passion. That's why I love meeting new people with differant ideals and challanges. It energizes me to work hard to achieve those goals and deliver the desired outcome.
Licensed in 1984, I am one of the longest serving Realtors with a thorough knowledge of Real Estate in Barrie today. Of my 36+ years as a Realtor, 28 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, I have been featured in the Toronto Star and 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, meeting at the client's house, listening carefully, and being responsive to client's needs, questions, and concerns. This tried and true approach is the reason every client has my cell number. As a CNE (certified negotiating expert) I have a long history and experience to negotiate the toughest deals along with advocacy skills when representing my clients. My first loyalty is always to my clients, who frequently testify to my dependable service and reliable, sincere attitude.
I am a past President of BDAR (Barrie District Association of Realtors), and Board Director. I am a member of RECO, OREA and CREA. Recognized many times over by Re/Max Atlantic and Re/Max International for my achovements, include the Lifetime Achievement Award, Hall of Fame, President's Club, 100% Club, Platinum Club and Chairmans Club (top 1% across Canada).
In adddition to my Certified Negotiation Expert designation designation (CNE), the growth in the boomer market for people downsizing motivated me to seek my Senior Real Estate Specialist SRES® designation 10 years ago. This designation has provided me with a unique education for the needs of seniors 60+ wishing to make lifestyle changes. Born and raised in Dublin Ireland I have lived in Canada since 1976.
