“Trust me to take care of your real estate needs.”

I’ve been a self-employed real estate professional now for over a decade, helping my clients buy and sell hundreds of homes all across the GTA and points beyond.  For many of my clients, I helped them rent their first apartment, buy and sell their starter home, and buy their dream home. 

My clients describe me as knowledgeable, determined and very good at helping them achieve great results – I take their trust very seriously.

As a wife and mother of two small children, I know how important the right home is to the fabric of the family, and it thrills me to work with my clients to find them just the right home. 

The GTA is one of the world’s hottest real estate markets, which brings exciting opportunities as well as unique risks - I have surrounded myself with industry experts, including legal and financial, I stay up-to-date on the relevant issues and regularly take industry courses in order to best serve my clients.  Real estate is a business I take very seriously. 

I’m a good listener – it's important we work together to clearly identify your unique goals - whether it is a single property purchase or for investors working in larger buying pools. 


"I believe that with hard work, comes great rewards. I am steadfastly there for my clients and know that my efforts will lead them to a successful transaction. Whether it is the nuances of residential sales, pre-construction condominium sales, or the specialized field of condo assignments, I'm on top of the development. Don't allow a chance to be part of your buying strategy. Let's work together and achieve the unachievable!"
