My family goes way back in Milton. Both my father and grandfather were born in Milton and lived on Snowbrook Farms, which has been my family’s land since my grandparents moved from the north side of Milton to the south side in 1922. My father was born on the farm in 1930 and took over running it at the young age of 16 and is still cultivating it today. Doing everything that needs to be done, including driving combines through the elds.
Just like the oak tree that takes generations to grow, I've learned the patience and perseverance from my father and grandfather and I was able to call on those values during a trip to Mount Everest. While attempting to reach a summit, my guides warned me to turn back, but I dug deep and even though it took me hours in freezing temperatures I reached my goal. Once I made it, the sense of achievement I felt made it all worthwhile.
That’s what I try to do for my clients every day, I show them the steps they need to take in order to make their dreams come true. One couple I worked with were hoping to buy their dream country property. I knew the couple would be stretched financially thin trying to maintain the home they wanted. Because of my background in construction, I was able to tell them how much work the property needed. I showed them the benefit of buying a lovely little home in town to help them get ready to afford their dream country home later on. Then, when the time was right, they came back to me and I helped them find the perfect country property, which is where they live today.
I'm not focused on selling to my clients. I want to educate them so they can make the best decisions that are right for them, not just now, but down the road as well. I do what needs to be done, from replacing carpet to clearing an overgrown property with equipment borrowed from my family’s farm.
Once I help my clients sell their home or find the perfect new home, I have a team in place that can turn their dream into reality, from home inspectors to lawyers to getting financing in place. Because I am also a mortgage broker, I can make sure that you get the best rates and terms on the mortgage for your new property.
