More than just a move

Seniors’ real estate needs are unique.

You've decided to sell the family home, on your terms, making a proactive versus a reactive decision. Whether due to necessity, financially or health-related or simply because you want a smaller or more social place to live in, this can be an exciting time of transition. It also can be overwhelming, emotional, and even complicated.

Where to start? With a casual conversation! In my experience with clients who are downsizing (prefer words, rightsizing, or resizing) I often hear, "We have to declutter first before we move. What do we do with the boxes full of old photos and stuff we have collected over the years? My kids don't want my antique table or china, I don't want to throw it away!"  My commitment to providing "more than just a move" experience includes making the process of rightsizing run as smoothly and simply as possible by helping with tasks, sharing resources for my clients including a decluttering guide, what companies work with to get trusted advice regarding selling antiques, coins, and art as well as lawyers and companies that specialize in Canadian and provincial tax laws, estate planning, wills and trusts, related to seniors. Moving at any age can be overwhelming, having a guide to help navigate the move and the real estate transaction with knowledge and compassion is a responsibility I take seriously and am grateful for.

With over 20 years' business experience, an alumna of Business in Vancouver's “40 under 40” I bring my award-winning attitude, sales and marketing, negotiating skills, and distinct collaborative approach to the real estate industry. My strategy for pricing your home right from the start to marketing your home with traditional and online campaigns ensure your home has maximum exposure and stands out from the competition. 

Are you ready for a conversation about making a proactive move on your terms, and would value a trusted guide? Just ask!
