While a teenager, my parents, and my brothers invested in rental properties. Before I turned 18 years old, I considered a career as a real estate agent. However, having yet neither bought, sold nor moved into my own property, I thought I would have no credibility to provide advice in such areas. So, I decided to pursue a military career. However, I always kept real estate in mind.
In 2013, thinking it would be useful for my investments in real estate, I decided to take all the Realtor courses. In 2014, realizing then I could provide a real and significant insight into relocation, and the buying/selling process of real estate assets, I made the decision: Realtor would be my second career! I completed the required courses and I obtained my license in the same year. One of the best decisions I have ever made.
Living in Ottawa for more than 17 years, I volunteered at the Orléans-Cumberland Food Bank for 12 years.
I am a member of the Royal Canadian Legion and a proud donor to the Support Our Troops Fund, the Soldier On Fund, and the Ontario Realtors Care® Foundation.
