Going Above and Beyond Your Expectations!
I love real estate, my true joy comes from helping my clients.
Today: Helping you get the most out of the biggest investment in your life is what I live for. Doing things right, being there every step of the way, and having great relationships are what I work towards every day.
My perfect day is made by helping clients get every dollar out of their current home, finding the right home after a great shopping adventure, and advising on renovation, energy saving, and financial strategies.
Nerd Alert: Prepare to go paperless, prepare for on-the-spot data, and most of all prepare to have a lot of fun. Yes, I get genuinely excited about the quirks of character homes, walkable neighborhoods (dare you to say coffee or bakery and I will happily share my favorites), and ooooh yes green home improvements.
Seriously try me, there is very little real estate related I don't like talking about or delving into.
My Style: Real, direct, personal. I work quickly, speak bluntly, and most of all have fun. I work with new school technology and old school people-first customer service. I get extreme satisfaction from: 1) the "after" look of a beautifully staged home, 2) selling the staged home for more than other agents thought it was worth, 3) that "aha" moment when we find the perfect home. Also horseback riding, going for walks with my family, and eating delicious pastries, but those aren't really what you're here for now are they!
Yesterday: After graduating with a classical music performance degree (yes, really!), I started in real estate as a home staging consultant and client care specialist. My company helped hundreds of sellers prepare their homes for sale with my specialized value-added home staging, professional photography and top-of-the-line marketing.
My services grew a reputation in Edmonton, and often sellers would list their homes just based on my photographs and marketing skills. After four years, much hard work and dedication, my family and friends kept asking me if I could help them buy or sell a home.
I decided it was time to provide the level of service I had grown a reputation for to my friends, family and clients; and hopefully, to you. I have been a licensed REALTOR since 2008, and love every day as a REALTOR.
Forever: Born and raised in Edmonton, I am one of Edmonton's biggest fans. I grew up in the University area where I still live today with my family.
I have a great appreciation for the diversity of communities in Edmonton, and have helped clients in every area of the City, plus Leduc, Sherwood Park, Beaumont, Stony Plain, Spruce Grove and Fort Saskatchewan. I have a passion for green housing, sustainable living and building strong communities.
Jad Kalke, organizational genius: Jad has an extensive background as an administrative professional, being very well esteemed after decades of keeping important people organized. Now you're the important people, and Jad is here to make sure all goes smoothly. I am honored to have such a great colleague to help me provide you with only the very best service.
Joanna Dawyd, paperwork whiz: with a background in copyediting, Joanna absolutely loves paper. She is the perfect person to take care of all of the paperwork for you, as well as set up showings and co-ordinate the many behind the scenes tasks that happen in real estate. You will love working with Joanna as much as I do.
FM Photo Studios, Ferdinand Maingat, photographer: Professional photography is vital in today's demanding real estate atmosphere, so all of my listings feature professional photographs of your staged home. FM Photo Studios also does weddings, family sessions and commercial work.
Zoë, daughter & Effrey, Mini & Tucker, critters: Zoë is the reason for getting up in the morning, and the fact that she will undoubtedly want a pony motivates me to sell as many houses as I can! Effrey & Mini are my welsh terriers and office entertainment, and Tucker is my quarter horse, aka relaxation specialist.
