I have lived in Kitimat almost my entire life and have come to realized the true benefit of living in a small community. I started my working career at Eurocan's pulp and paper which gave me 10 years of industrial experience, locally and in the Alberta, oil fields and eventually in Burnaby at Chevron's (now Parkland's) refinery. I then realized it was time for a change. My wife and I decided that we prefer the outdoor lifestyle Kitimat has to offer and in 2014 we packed up our 2 adorable little girls, 2 dogs and decided to move back to Kitimat and change my career. Real Estate had always been a passion as I had experience buying and renovating homes in Kitimat and saw the potential for improvement to our community in doing so. Summer of 2015, I became a Realtor. Since then, my knowledge of the market has expanded and brought to light all the opportunities available that only a small town has to offer. Seeing a first time Buyer get the keys to their new home, or a long-time resident sell their family home and move on to bigger and better thing is fantastic to be part of. Every home that changes hands has a large impact on someone's life!! Buying or Selling a home is usually the largest transactions any homeowner will ever make, and my experience and knowledge of Kitimat's market is invaluable in helping navigate all the in's and out's of doing so. As a repeated MLS award winner, and one of the top producing Realtor's in Kitimat, I can help you through these transactions as quickly and smoothly as possible to give you the best experience available.

After living in Kitimat for over 45 years and working in automotive and industrial sales for over 33 years serving customers in the industry I took a career change and decided to pursue my career in Real Estate. Having raised my two boys in this community alongside my wife the new career choice was more of a challenge to me. After starting my new path in 2012 I have gained knowledge in both residential and multi-family sales as well as commercial leases. Over my new career I have earned the Re/Max "100% Club" award multiple times. I am committed to work hard and listen to my client's needs and follow through even after the transaction is complete. Striving daily to build relationships with clients and most importantly nurture those relationships and make new friends along the way. I have always said the transaction doesn't end with the sale.

My journey in real estate began on my maternity leave after giving birth to our son Sean in 2011. I always worked retail and my husband Paul, who is my biggest fan, suggested I try real estate and working for myself. I worried about fitting it into a schedule where he worked out of town and having a young family. Little did I know what I thought would be my biggest struggle would become my biggest strength and quality people would admire.
Since 2014 I’ve spent my time building my brand on quality service, genuine authenticity, information, education, transparency. Qualities I know are valued with clients. Fast forward, with our daughter Harper thrown into the mix 4 years ago; my business has continued to be built on quality relationships, trust and education.
In my experience, Real Estate is more than just selling and buying houses. It’s a personalized approach to ensure the best service, the best price and the best value is delivered in every transaction, every step of the way. In my experience I have learned that Real Estate needs trust to be built over time to make long lasting relationships.
It is my belief that clients come FIRST and that client care systems are established to ensure communication is clear. I find value in ensuring you have the most information and education BEFORE we get started and discussing marketing plans. This will ensure your home is exposed in the best way possible to attract our target demographic. As they say, “fail to plan and you plan to fail”, so let’s connect about your personalized strategy whether you're buying or selling.
Being from Edmonton and still licensed in the greater Edmonton area, I am able to collaborate with a larger network of professionals from both local markets and Edmonton markets to help get your home sold.
My take on Real Estate comes with clarity, creativity and passion to get the job done. I believe in coaching clients through the buying and selling process as a trusted advisor."
