Welcome to my Website

Buying or selling a property is probably one of the biggest decisions we make in our lifetime. There are so many things to consider: neighborhood, type of property, timing, trading up or down etc...  As well it is crucial that one considers their short term and long term needs before commiting to a real-estate transaction. This is why discussing the situation with a professional real estate broker is key. As a CENTURY 21® Real Estate broker, I am dedicated to providing you with the highest quality service possible. My personal knowledge of the local Real Estate market is combined with the power of the CENTURY 21 brand - the most recognized name in Real Estate today.

It would be a pleasure for me to assist you in finding your dream home, in a neighbourhood that is right for you, and in the price range you want. Or if you are interested in selling a property, I also have the expertise to help you get the fastest sale possible and at the best price.

Professional Interests

Being a real estate broker allows me to help people at different stages of their lives: young couples just starting out and looking for their first condo, growing families in search of a bigger home, empty nesters who have decided it's time to move into a condo and seniors contemplating their next move, whether to a condo or to a retirement home. In Montreal, there is an aging population and many seniors have children who have moved away. When the decision is made to sell a property, out-of-towners will often entrust me with the sale of their parents' property. They know they can rely on me to get job done tactfully and efficiently. I take care of every detail from ordering the certificate of location, to accompanying the vendors to the notary, while keeping the children up to date on everything that is happening, providing peace of mind to everyone involved. Please feel free to ask for references.

Professional Background

I joined the family business at 17. We had a non-woven textile plant in Ville St-Laurent. After work, I would go to Vanier College for night classes. It made for some very long and tiring days but it taught me a great deal of discipline.  

I did that for about 7 years, graduating from McGill University in 1995. In the business, I started as a receptionist and then gradually took on more challenging positions: accounts payable, accounts receivable, human resources. After a few years I started sourcing for raw materials and negotiating with local and overseas suppliers. Later on I switched to sales and marketing. During those years I acquired some invaluable skills: organization,  negotiation and perseverence. The various jobs also helped improve my analytical skills and taught me to be meticulous about details. I learned a lot about the business world and about working hard in order to achieve your goals.

From an early age, I developped a very strong work ethic: integrity and dedication have always played an important role in my life and I am only satisfied when I know that I've given 100 percent. I try to apply this philosophy to everything I do. 

  

Protecting your interests

As a homeowner myself, I understand that buying or selling a property can be an emotional and stressful experience. I can help you see things in an objective manner and guide you through the process. With me there is no added pressure to sell fast or to buy quickly: whether I represent you as a buyer or as a seller, you can rest assured that I will always put your interests first.

Personal Background

Real estate has been a big part of my life ever since I was a little girl.

I grew up in a home where my father and brothers were very handy. A couple of years after we immigrated to Canada, my parents purchased a duplex on De LaPeltrie street. It was a "fixer-upper". We renovated it and after a few years, sold it for a little profit. From then on, we picked up a few investment properties and the rest, as they say, is history.

From my personal experience, real estate has always been a sound investment and I enjoy helping others achieve their own real estate goals. When it's time to sell your property, as a licensed real estate broker I will use my expertise to get you TOP DOLLAR for your investment.

If you're looking to buy a property and don't know where to start, I will help you figure it out and get you the most VALUE for your money.

Whether you are looking to buy or sell, please give me a call at (514)884-4222 and we can set up an appointment to discuss your real estate needs.
