Agent Bio:


I love it here!

After a business career in my hometown of Toronto, Perth (Christie Lake) became home in June 2005 after cottaging at Christie Lake “forever”.  My husband’s family has owned property on the lake for over 100 years and my kids consider Christie Lake and Perth area their root – their real home.  We chose to move here because we love the area and its convenience to major centres – only one hour to Ottawa, just over 3 hours to Toronto and Montreal, one hour to Kingston – an historical and beautiful gem of a town with super amenities – theatres, unique shops, parks, golf courses, yummy restaurants, beautiful stone buildings, friendly people, and one of the best hospitals in the country. Yes, it is fun to show off this wonderful part of Canada.  As our local radio station promotes – “100 lakes within a 50 mile radius of Perth” – amazing!  Plus, Canadian shield, gorgeous inland lakes, and the famous Rideau Lakes and Rideau Canal System, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


  • The Right Experience

30 years of corporate sales and marketing experience in publishing and advertising – listening and working with people to creatively meet needs –  has well equipped me to help you research and find the right property to buy, and professionally market your property to sell.

  • Knowledge and Drive

When I first came to Perth and joined Coldwell Banker I spent time gaining concentrated market knowledge to better serve my clients.  I was determined to compact 5 years of experience into a couple of months.  Well, it paid off – knowledge, a personal, positive and responsive approach, strong work ethic – makes for award winning success – one of the top realtors in our office – and happy buyers and sellers.

  • Success!

I have helped people buy and sell homes and properties “just like yours” –  subdivision homes, grand Victorians, smaller first time buyer and empty nester homes, new homes, condos, businesses, investment properties, vacant building lots, farms, cottages and waterfront homes, country homes.  I will help you, too.

Let’s talk – I look forward to working with you…
