What would you want to do for living if you were not a real estate agent?
I started my first career as a Registered Nurse. It was an amazing profession and my goal was to make a much needed contribution to my community first in Hamilton, and then Toronto. In the latter part of my work as a Nurse, I spent time working as a case manager in the homes of Toronto, where I learned the most about people, and their relationships w their families and their communities. It was a powerful learning experience. I often worked w Seniors which was more often than not educational and great fun. I was privy to many great stories and lots of laughs. It really helped me in preparing for my current focus in Real Estate, that is working w the Transitioning or sometimes called the Downsizing population. Downsizers, those who find it time to move to smaller spaces like condos or perhaps homes in smaller cities like St. Catharines amongst the many many others to choose from. We have so many great referral partners all over Canada we can introduce our moving clients to. We help clients as well w their parents transitions from their long held family homes, to condos or retirement homes. So I would say that Nursing as a career would be rewarding. I'm sure there is much to learn after 22 years. I have been fortunate to have enjoyed both of my professions. I have brought so much from my first profession as a nurse into my profession now as a Real Estate Agent.
