When you love your job it is really not a real job. Real Estate has been my profession for over 30 years and have helped many people sell or buy their home. So many different personalities, so many different reasons why they are moving. It's the people that make my job so interesting. I help make the biggest decision in their lives. It doesn't get any better than that in my opinion.
My family has certainly supported me throughout my career. It has taken a lot. It is a balancing act between career , family, and personal time. When I'm not with my family, I'm at the barn with my horse, doing a little volunteer work, or out golfing a round with my friends. All my clients seem to understand and I'm certainly not too far away from my phone at anytime.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of St. Thomas/Elgin has been the agency that my family and I have spent most of our volunteer time supporting. Over 28 years helping the children in this area, hoping to make a difference in their lives. Each year I give a helping hand with our local "Soups On" and the "Big Bike" for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Our Real Estate Board every January puts on a "Curling Funspiel" donating funds to "Mission Services" and I'm on that committee. And lastly "Violence Against Women" certainly is also in my heart. They know I am only a phone call away if they need help. Certainly giving back to your own community is important. If everybody with just do a little!
St.Thomas has been my home town since I was 17 years old. Raised my family here. St. Thomas is such a unique town. Sorry it is a "City". We are just 15 minutes from London so if you need a little extra night life or extra shopping thearapy just head north if you have tried everything here and just need to get a away. Need a little relaxation then head to the beach in Port Stanley just 15 minutes south. Detroit is only 2 hours away and Toronto is just 2 hours away. Because St. Thomas is so close to the lake we don't get the snow that just minutes north get :). St. Thomas is such a unique location. Our little Secret. Yours to discover.
