When it comes to buying or selling a home, we understand the importance of getting to know your REALTOR® as more than just a professional. Our “Meet A REALTOR®” series introduces the hard-working people of the Century 21 Bachman & Associates, and provides a personal look at each of us as residents of our community. For this installment, we spoke with Susan Belanger about what it means to live and work as a REALTOR® in Winnipeg & the surrounding area.
1) How long have you lived in Winnipeg?
I am a life long resident
2) Why did you choose to settle here?
My family and most of my childhood friends are here. I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else
3) What is your favorite thing about living in Manitoba?
The Affordable Living in Manitoba makes it easier to afford a lifestyle – Dinners out, Movies, Travel and of course Home Ownership
4) What makes Manitoba different than any other province to live?
The friendly people, the summers here are outstanding. We are so close to lakes that a quick getaway is only an hour away! Winnipeg has big city amenities (NHL, Shopping, Dining out, Theatre, Music) but a small town atmosphere; I love it!
5) Tell us a few of your favorite activities to do or places to visit in the area?
I love food and trying out new restaurants with friends. The arts & cultural scene is amazing. As well as our proximity to Lakes and Beaches, Cross-Country Skiing in the winter. I can ski right out my backdoor!
6) Tell us one thing you love about working in the real estate industry and why?
The people I meet and the joy of making their dreams of home ownership a reality.
7) Describe your favorite sale in real estate:
Wow, this is difficult to say. Every sale is special and unique. It’s the clients that really stand out not the property.
8) How has technology helped you as a REALTOR®?
Technology has allowed me to respond to people in real time. Everything you need is in the palm of your hand.
9) Describe one quality about yourself, which has helped you develop the necessary skills to be a successful REALTOR® with Century 21 Bachman & Associates?
My passion to help people. I am a great listener with intuitive skills. I want the best for all people whether they are my clients or not.
