Q&A With Michelle:
WHY DID YOU BECOME A REALTOR®?
I’ve been in the customer service industry since my early teens, forming amazing relationships with hundreds of people.
After many years in the restaurant industry, I aspired for a greater challenge and transitioned into the financial sector. Years in banking provided me with a great foundation and knowledge base forming the stepping stone that sparked my interest in real estate.
I realized I wanted to have my own business where I could build relationships with people while working hard to find them one of the most important purchases of their life.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PART OF SELLING REAL ESTATE?
My favourite part of selling real estate would be hosting open houses where I can put a unique spin on my presentations. I’ve been a big fan of hosting events for friends and family in the past and I feel I bring that experience to my real estate career.
Another favourite part of selling real estate is the marketing of a home, I like to utilize a variety of social marketing tools to reach the vast amount of perspective buyers.
WHERE DO YOU LIKE TO TRAVEL?
My favourite vacation was my cross Canada road trip from Ontario to Vancouver Island. We stopped in each province and made sure we got to experience it with multiple adventures planned along the way. As we chased the sun and changed time zones, we were amazed at the true beauty Canada has to offer. I became more proud to be Canadian after witnessing all the sites, sounds and uniqueness each province has to offer. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE BOOKS, MOVIES, SHOWS, BANDS?
Favourite books are mostly about motivation. I'm a big fan of Tony Robbins and Gabby Bernstein as I like their outlook on life, “Positive mind, positive thoughts, positive outcome”. I Truly believe in the power of positivity and what you project out to the world will come right back around to you.
Movies… I'm a big fan of comedy as well as documentaries I'm also a huge fan of Podcasts, mainly motivation and True crime.I have a wide variety of music that I listen to, but I have to admit I am a huge country fan.
WHAT'S ONE THING MOST PEOPLE DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU?
Most people don’t know my career began as a freelance graphic designer after completing the graphic design program at Mohawk college. What steered me away from that career was the lack of a face to face connection with people.
The greatest part about real estate is incorporating the artistic flare of my marketing, balancing it with client interaction, building great relationships and having successful outcomes for everyone involved.
