I look forward to the opportunity of working for you!
I was born in Grimsby, Ontario and my family moved to Brampton, Ontario when I was 4 years old. As you can probably guess, I was raised in Brampton and do consider myself a true "Bramptonian". I am currently a proud home owner in Brampton where I, along side my husband, have decided to raise our two sons. We are a typical Canadian "Hockey" family!
- Strong Negotiator - As your REALTOR® , I will negotiate in a manner that is mutually acceptable to all parties involved. In order to be a great negotiator, I possess strong "people skills" and genuinely enjoy working and dealing with various types of people.
- Knowledge- I am familiar with the Greater Toronto Area including Brampton, Caledon, Mississauga, Georgetown and surrounding areas. I will be able to assist you in finding out local school information, city demographics and more.
- Trustworthiness, Diligence & Helpfulness - As a Buyer or Seller, you can trust me implicitly and know that I have a passion for the business and will be helpful during the process and not intrusive.
I'm proud to be involved in the CENTURY 21® Millennium Inc. 'Caring for Kids' program. Each year we liaison with local schools so we can provide a magical Christmas for needy children and their families. In 2008 we were able to help 15 families and 48 precious children.
I am a member of the Canadian Real Estate Association, the Ontario Real Estate Association and the Brampton Real Estate Board. I am continually upgrading my skills through continuing education and professional development.
Tips to sell your house
When you are ready to sell your house you'll want to make your home as marketable as possible. Here are a few tips:
- Clean everything in and out of sight - With clipboard in hand, take a tour of your home. Take note of every opportunity to remove clutter and dirt. Rooms, closets and cupboards will appear larger and more inviting when you get rid of unnecessary stuff and tidy up what's left. Remove bulky or unused furniture and rearrange the rest to make the best use of space. Pay particular attention to the two most important rooms in a buyer's mind: bathrooms and kitchens.
- Repair as much as you can - During your home tour identify the things that are broken, cracked, stuck or just plain don't work anymore. These can include: leaky faucets, holes in window screens, stuck or broken windows, lights that don't work, doors that squeak or don't close properly, missing or broken cupboard handles, cracks in the walls and ceilings, and dozens of other "little things" you've been meaning to do for years. Now is the time.
- De-personalize your home - Your house reflects you. It is decorated with your taste and your sense of style. Grit your teeth and store all personal items (framed family photos, trophies, etc.) out of the way. Also, if you have brightly coloured accent walls or heavily patterned wallpaper, consider repainting or wallpapering these areas with light, neutral colours that enhance a room's size and make it more flexible to receive any kind of furniture. Remove area rugs, light fixtures and other items that buyers might find too difficult to imagine in "their" home, even if you were not intending to include these in the sale.
- Beautify the house and yard - Peeling, dry paint is relatively easy to fix or replace and can make all the difference in your home's appearance. If your carpet or other floor covering is in really bad shape, consider replacing it. The same holds true for badly tattered window coverings such as drapes and blinds. Outside the house, weed the flower beds, remove dead tree branches, keep your lawn well-mowed and edged, trim the hedges, rake the leaves, sweep the sidewalks, fix and paint the deck or fence, plant a few flowers and do anything else you can think of to enhance your home's curb appeal. It may sound like a lot of effort, but these tips, and the assistance of a REALTOR®, will help you sell your current home quickly so you can move on to your next dream house.
