I was born in Essex England and moved to Canada when I was 23, looking for adventure. I wanted to be a Realtor⊙  but with no family to lean on I had to wait. Four children, a divorce, elderly parents needing care and finally it was time for me. The result of these life lessons is that I have compassion, empathy and see the world from many perspectives. The job of a good Realtor⊙ is to find out about you and how I may best help you. I learned this from the sale of my very first home, it made me feel special and now I pass it on to my clients.
