About Me


Since youre looking at profiles you must be considering making a change. Maybe youre a first time buyer, or youre a pro in the acquisition of buying and selling properties. Either way its your hard earned equity that were talking about. Buying and selling decisions are not to be taken lightly as you decide who to partner with.  Let me help you in your decision.  

Im in my 17th year of award winning real estate sales.  Ive sold everything from a $5,000 rural lot, to the highest sale price in the Fredericton Real Estate Board area for a residential property. Well over a million dollars.

My background includes business development consulting, marketing, human resource development, rehab consulting, and the world of radio and television. Why would I ever want to get into the complex world of 24 x 7 real estate sales?  Good question.

I wanted to be the skipper of my own ship. Real estate takes creativity, commitment, organization, and a lot of listening and negotiating ability. I had those skills, so it was time to create my own path.

In terms of understanding the stresses of relocation, Ive survived 23 moves across North America and abroad.  I grew up in a Navy family and married into the Army. Occasionally I still find Allied Van Lines stickers on old boxes.

However, 26 years ago we returned to my favourite City, Fredericton, where I had attended University at STU and UNB. Such a beautiful City with almost endless walking trails and many cultural gifts.

I love to sail on our incredible river whenever I get a chance.  An abundance of wildlife awaits as you wind your way to Saint John and into the Bay of Fundy. There is nothing like the Bay of Fundy!

I really know this City and much of this part of the Province big and small communities, lakes, rivers, and the wonderful people who live there.

My husband recently asked (jokingly) if I knew everyone in Fredericton; as I greeted yet another person at the Saturday farmers market. Knowing a lot of people makes it easier when things need to be done.  I dont want my clients to be stressed when its time to add others to our team such as lawyers, inspectors, etc. Life is tough enough as it is.

Ive worked with Boomers who are coming home to the Maritimes, buyers who want to come here for a less frantic lifestyle, overseas buyers who have come to Fredericton looking for a safe haven, military buyers who have turned buying and selling into an art form, local buyers who are moving across the street or to a winterized cottage, buyers who have horses (Im one of those) and need a barn and pastures, and commercial investors who are looking to expand their real estate investment portfolio.  First time buyers are very dear to my heart and my focus involves teaching you how to buy the right home as we start the search.

So whats the bottom line here. In this highly competitive world of sales I have 17 years of award winning service to my clients. My business is mostly referral or repeat.  I take upgrading courses every year, and I use the many technological tools that make our job more effective and efficient.  (I could do without more passwords. Im sure you feel the same way).  And I like my job.

If youd like to talk about your next investment, give me a call. I love it when someone asks, Hows the market?

In the interim, look after yourself as our world struggles for equilibrium.  Better days ahead.

'Be strong, be fearless. And believe that anything is possible when you have the right people there to support you'.
