I have lived in the Comox Valley since 1993. Born and raised in the far north of British Columbia, I was lucky to be able to finish my high school years on Vancouver Island. After marrying my husband, Christopher, we moved to his hometown of Kingston, Ontario.I started my career as a realtor there in the 1980’s when I had two small boys, Graham and Andrew. After 5 successful years, our family was growing again and we decided to move back to Vancouver Island. We spent one year in Victoria awaiting the birth of my daughter, Catherine, and used the time to take trips all over British Columbia searching for the perfect community to settle, raise a family, and eventually retire. We easily chose the Comox Valley for its affordability, clean air, friendly community, great recreation, and good employment opportunities. I took many years off as a realtor in order to devote my time to my growing family and, when my youngest was in high school, I became licensed again.
I am now the mother of three, grandmother of three, and proud to be working in the career I love. I am truly living the good life and I look forward to helping others do the same!
Being a realtor in the 21st century is very different from being a realtor in the 1980’s! There were no personal computers, cell phones, or even lock boxes back then! I remember how thrilled we were when our office got our first fax machine! Technological advances make some parts of my job easier now but many parts are more complicated. The legal responsibility and accountability of a realtor is much greater now, which is why we are required to constantly upgrade our education. I am a life-long learner and have many extra courses on specific areas of real estate, such as selling income producing properties, strata properties, etc.
I love to help people find their dream property, whether it be young people buying their first home, growing families moving up, elderly people downsizing after retirement, or a disciplined saver who invests in an income producing property.
