To me, real estate isn’t about finding or selling houses, it’s about providing opportunities to people, whether that be helping them find their dream home, an investment property that can help them reach financial freedom, or even jumpstart a career in real estate.
My story starts where I grew up, in the northside of Edmonton. Here, you get to experience rural living with wide open fields on one side and access to a bustling city on the other. This unique side of the city helped me learn to appreciate everything Edmonton has to offer.
My interest in helping people started young and I have my family to thank for that. My mom was a hairstylist, and my dad was a Real Estate Agent here in Edmonton. Watching how they made people so happy with a new hairstyle or with their dream home inspired me to be just like them, and that’s been my driving force ever since.
Following in my mother’s footsteps, I was a hairstylist for 20 years. I opened up a hair salon called Harrow Hair Company and it soon became a thriving retail business. During this time, I learned a lot about what it takes to run a business and how to deeply connect with people. I cherished every connection I made with everyone who walked through my doors and every story they trusted me with.
I recall often hearing stories from women about how hard it was for them to find a decent home they could afford and feel safe in. Then one day, one client asked if me I wanted to flip a house with him. I excitedly said yes, not knowing this one decision would lead me to where I am today.
We successfully flipped the house and sold it to a single mother in need of a good place to call home. I immediately knew this was something I wanted to keep doing so I continued to teach myself construction skills and I eventually obtained my real estate license.
With over 10 years of experience flipping homes and being with a Brokerage that prides itself on their expert level knowledge of real state and building strong client relationships that last, I am able to help my clients in a very special way; I know how to find my clients the perfect home, how to turn forgotten properties into modern gems, how to prepare for a city inspection, and how to really be there for them in any way they need me to be.
I believe this is knowledge that all agents should have to truly serve their clients, which is why I take the time to mentor up-and-coming agents who want to be a positive light for those looking for their dream home.
