About Your Port Elgin and Southampton Real Estate Agent
Having grown up on the shores of Lake Huron in Southampton, I am happy to be living and working in the area again and helping people realize their dreams, whether you are settling here permanently, retiring, or buying your second home or cottage. Saugeen Shores and area is a great community offering a unique lifestyle to both the young and old, and I have seen that over the 50+ years that I have been living and visiting this area.
My family has been here since the 1940’s when my grandparents first settled here and bought the Southampton Hotel (now the Outlaw Brew Co.) and later the Breaker’s Lodge. I have become very involved in the local community since returning in 2010; first joining the local Rotary and the CFUW club, as well as my involvement in the District School Board committee. My main focus is now with the Saugeen Shores Chamber of Commerce where I am now serving as their Past President after finishing up my eighth year on the Board of Directors. I not only enjoy being involved with the local businesses but am usually one of the first to know what is happening within our community and I can bring this knowledge to help my clients whether deciding where to live or even what business to invest in.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of Guelph and have been in Sales almost my entire career. Prior to Real Estate, I was in Sales at CTV in Kitchener. I have an extensive marketing and advertising background which I am able to bring to my Real Estate career. Customer Service has been the key to my success. My husband, who is my business partner, brings with him extensive knowledge as well and is part of our unique services. We want to help showcase your home to make it the best it can be and help sell it faster for top dollar. Ray spent 25 years at CTV and helps me manage all of the online marketing for your home.
I have also achieved my ABR®(Accredited Buyer’s Representative) designation as I feel with the Industry changing constantly it is important that I remain relevant and able to manage any transaction that my client’s require. I was recently named into the RE/MAX Hall of Fame. I promise you will not be disappointed if you are looking for someone that knows the area, can market your property and has excellent negotiating skills.
New for 2020, for every transaction, I will be donating to the Saugeen Memorial Hospital Foundation as another added bonus. The RE/MAX Children’s Miracle Network is a great initiative which I also participate in but I wanted to also give directly to our local community, and every dollar goes directly towards equipment for the Southampton Hospital.
If you have a question about our community or about real estate don’t hesitate to call me anytime, I look forward to talking to you!
