I'm passionate about a few things:
But I'm even more passionate about helping my clients find the home that is right for them.
I specialize in helping families who have outgrown their current home, usually with the arrival of a wee one. Who knew someone so small could take up so much space? With the arrival of a baby, you start to think about things that you hadn't before. I love guiding clients through the process of finding the neighbourhood that they want to raise their children in.
I also love helping first time home buyers through the excitement and nervousness of buying their first property. It doesn't have to be scary!
Where I live
Before we had kids, my husband and I lived in a condo in Kits, which we adored. After our first son was born, our one bedroom and den condo suddenly became too small (sound familiar?!) so we bought a house near Commercial Drive in East Vancouver.
If you live in the area and have kids, you've probably seen me around the playground, the ice rink or Community Centre at Trout Lake. If you live in the area and don't have kids, you've probably seen me shopping at Donald's Market, running around Trout Lake, sipping a coffee at The Prado cafe or enjoying a chocolate chip zucchini muffin at JJ Bean.
Which neighborhoods do I specialize in?
I work in all areas of Vancouver (including outside of Vancouver proper like North Van, Burnaby and Port Moody). I specialize in East Van because it's my 'hood and I know the schools, parks, restaurants, community centres and ammenities like the back of my hand.
A portion of every one of my sales go to the Children's Miracle Network as well as Backpack Buddies.
The children's hospitals supported by the Children's Miracle Network provide comfort, treatment and hope to millions of sick kids each year. In Vancouver, our donations go directly to the BC Children’s Hospital and last year, our RE/MAX office raised more than $24,105.
Backpack Buddies is a unique program that addresses a very real need in Vancouver that most of us don't think about. There are many kids that attend inner city schools that rely on lunch programs throughout the school week. When the weekend rolls around, many of these kids will remain hungry until they return to school on Monday. Backpack Buddies provides a backpack filled with food for these kids to take home, because hunger doesn't take the weekend off.
In 2002, I was a part of Joints in Motion, raising over $4,000 for the Arthritis Society of Canada and running my first marathon in Honolulu. In 2003 & 2005, I joined Team in Training, raising over $10,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada.
I also volunteer every year with the Vancouver Heritage Foundation and the Vancouver International Wine Festival (formerly the Playhouse International Wine Festival). I love heritage houses and wine!
