WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT BEING A REALTOR®?

  • Telling my clients that their house is sold and/or they got the house.
  • Helping people.
  • Hearing people’s stories.

WHAT DID YOU DO PRIOR TO REAL ESTATE?

I was a radio personality!  I began my radio career in 2002 at 102.1 The Edge in Toronto and eventually ended up in Barrie where I was a morning show host on B101 FM.

WHERE IS YOUR FAVOURITE SPACE AT HOME?

My basement.  As a teenager, I spent a lot of time in the basement and it continues as an adult.  It’s such a comfortable space and it also helps that I have surround sound and a big TV.

WHAT SONG MOTIVATES YOU?

Anything by the Foo Fighters. They are by far my favourite band and I’ve actually had the chance to meet them.

WHAT’S THE MOST CHALLENGING THING YOU HAVE EVER DONE?

Become a parent. Being a dad is the greatest thing I’ve ever done, but there is so much that you just can’t prepare yourself for. Anyone who is a parent knows that you would do anything for your child to ensure they have the best upbringing and that they are always safe.
