I have enjoyed the pleasure of growing up on the prairies. Where else can you find wide open spaces, endless wheat fields and beautiful sunsets?
I was born in Scotland and immigrated to Canada at seven years old with my family. I grew up on the family dairy farm near Forrest, then spent a year in Prince Edward Island where my family moved in 1996, before returning to the Brandon area by myself and settling near Rapid City.
Much of my life has been spent riding and showing hunter/jumper horses and ponies. Once an Equine Canada judge, I am now giving back as a volunteer for the Canadian Pony Club and Little Saskatchewan River Pony Club recently formed by myself and two neighbours.
After completing the Rural Development and Applied Counselling programs at Assiniboine Community College, I was employed as the Outreach & Marketing Coordinator for a private treatment centre for 12 years. In 2010 I joined Sutton-Harrison Realty and have juggled a busy career as an award winning REALTOR® Ever Since.
My days are filled with helping my clients with their real estate investments, viewing homes, reviewing home inspections, negotiating contracts, putting up sold signs or handing over keys to new homeowners. As a primarily rural REALTOR®, I’m often on the road traveling to different towns, acreages and farms.
At the end of the day I come home to my supportive husband Mike and our beautiful daughters Laney and Libby on our own piece of prairie paradise where our girls are sharing my love for horses.
Looking for a Real Estate Agent who puts you first?
If you’re planning to buy or sell a home, you want the process to go successfully. If you’re selling, success means getting your property sold quickly and for the highest price possible. If you’re buying, it means finding your next dream home and getting into it, affordably. On top of that, if you’re like most of my satisfied customers, you also want everything to go smoothly, with as little stress as possible.
How can you ensure all that happens? By working with a real estate agent who truly puts you first.
I’m proud to be the real estate agent of choice for those who want a great experience buying or selling a home. My “clients-first” approach means that you’ll be working with a professional who listens to you, provides expert advice, and works hard on your behalf.
The Expert by Your Side
When you’re selling: My track record of success means I know how to showcase your house effectively, market and promote it so that it attracts qualified buyers and get it SOLD for the highest price. Throughout the process, I’m with you every step of the way, making sure your questions are answered, all the details are handled expertly, and the entire experience is a positive one.
When you’re buying: My expertise in the local market means I can introduce you to homes that meet your criteria – and notify you immediately of brand new listings. I can advise you on what to look for when viewing a home, so you don’t make a catastrophic mistake, and I can arm you with in-depth details on every property you see. When you find a home you fall in love with, I know how to negotiate effectively so you get that property, at the best possible price. In fact, nothing pleases me more than saying, “The home is yours.”
The Right Real Estate Agent for You
Whether you’re buying or selling, it’s ultimately about realizing a dream. I understand how much the decision will mean to you. In fact, that’s one of the reasons I became a real estate agent – to help people buy or sell a home, while making the process easy and trouble-free. Clients often tell me how much they appreciate my expertise, my willingness to be there with them every step of the way, and my determination to get them the best deal. They also tell me I’m friendly and a pleasure to work with – which is quite a compliment!
If you’re looking for a real estate agent, it’s important that you find someone who is a good fit for you. So let’s talk. Whether you’re selling or buying, I’d like to learn more about you and your needs and goals. You can count on me to “tell it like it is” and give you a realistic picture of what is possible.
