“Helping my clients live an Exceptional Life”


As a real estate Broker with SOTHEBY’S INTERNATIONAL REALTY CANADA, l welcome you to my personal real estate website.

As a real estate Professional in today’s changing market, I am keenly aware of the market dynamics that will best allow me to inform and counsel the needs of my valued clients.   

  With over 20 years experience as Broker & Market Value Appraiser for residential properties I have extensive knowledge of the Southern Georgian Bay area, the local real estate market and the selling and buying process for all types of properties.  Whether you are buying or selling, as my client you will receive my undivided, personal attention and expertise at every stage of the process.  Quite simply: “I believe the best way for me to achieve my life’s objectives is to first assist you in achieving yours.” 

The global pandemic in 2020 and 2021 had a profound impact on the real estate market across Canada overall.  The demand for properties outside cities such as the Greater Toronto Area reached new heights including here in Southern Georgian Bay.

In early 2022 market conditions started to shift and this has continued into 2023 driven by significantly higher mortgage rates.  As a result, we have returned to a “balanced market” for both Sellers and Buyers.
