Real Estate Investing in & around Winnipeg

One of the best investments available to everyone is Real Estate! There is no more land being made and there are no two properties alike. Determining what your Real Estate investment goals are is your first step. Are you looking at real estate as a rental property, maybe a single detached home or a multi unit property? Can you professionally refurbish an unliveable property to a liveable property? Your next step to ask yourself is, who’s on your team to help you achieve these goals? The professionals that I would recommend when forming your team are as follows: Realtor, Mortgage Specialist, Handyman, Accountant/Tax Specialist and Lawyer.  I recommend thinking through your goals and following these steps: be specific with your goals, goals must be measurable, put you goals in writing, your goals must be realistic and with a time frame.

A Bit About Me

Moving has been my thing, subconsciously I must love packing, unpacking, painting and decorating. Why else would I have moved 21 times in the past 28 years? My early years were spent growing up  on a grain farm west of Elie, Manitoba. Once I graduated from high school, I made the big venture to Winnipeg and started my retail management career, living in several great communities: St James, West End and Downtown. Through a promotion at work, I left Winnipeg for approximately three years, living in both Ontario and Alberta. When the chance came up for me to move back to Winnipeg, I took it! Winnipeg is definitely one great city to live in and I knew that I would eventually get back home. Returning to Winnipeg has given me the chance to experience even more of this city's great communities: Wolseley, West Kildonan, River Heights and presently, Waverley Heights.

Married to an incredible man named Jeff, I have a wonderful daughter named Chloe, and we have a Lab mix dog named Lily. My family is of great importance to me. I love being involved with my daughter's school and all of her activities...kids definitely need their familiy's involvement to help them grow into strong positive young adults. Family favourites include: cycling, spending time at Brereton Lake cottage, water skiing, concerts, and musicals...the list goes on!
