WHAT THREE THINGS DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT BEING A REALTOR?
I get to be a part of most people’s biggest life’s purchase. Helping find dream homes and first homes are absolutely amazing.
I love all the relationships I made, both with clients and with team members.
I love all the interesting and beautiful properties I get to see. Watching them transform from our staging, photography and video is absolutely amazing.
WHO OR WHAT HAS BEEN THE BIGGEST INFLUENCE ON YOUR LIFE?
My parents. I’m sure most people would say this, but my parents are special. Watching my mom and dad working on their hands and knees in the field day and night really demonstrated what hard work is all about. They brought me into the fields with them when I was as a small child which taught me to never take them for granted. They did all that they could to give me the life that I have today and in turn I work hard for my family to give them the same.
WHAT’S SOMETHING YOU’D LIKE TO LEARN?
I love touring waterfront homes, and I would like to dig deeper and learn even more about the waterfront in Georgian Bay. Georgian Bay has some of the best boating in the world and I’m hoping to experience that soon.
WHO OR WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
Mark has inspired me from the moment we first met. I remember sitting in my interview and he told me he was going to sell 75 homes that year (back in 2008). He was newer to the industry then, but I believed him. That first year working together, Faris Team ended up selling over 100 homes. His motivation, drive and determination has inspired me every day since.
WHAT MAKES YOU LAUGH?
My husband Adam. He is the funniest person I know. He can turn any serious moment into a joke and always makes me and the kids laugh.
