Chairman’s Trip – Cabo San Lucas

I just got back from the annual Chairman’s trip, this year it was in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. It was great to be in one place with the other Chairman’s Club members to talk about what what got us there in the first place. Most of the people who were on this trip I haven’t met before so I really made a point to try and talk to everyone and I made some great connections.

Desert Dune Buggy day trip with John Lawler

The highlight of the trip was definitely going whale watching! We were able to see Humpback Whales breaching on this tour. It was incredible! Happy to cross that off my bucket-list.

 

 

 

Waterloo Region 2017 Kickoff

I was invited to be on the panel and speak to over 200 agents from the Kitchener/Waterloo area at their Waterloo Region 2017 Kickoff. It was a great experience to answer some questions for agents there and learn some new ideas myself.

I was happy to see my friend Melissa there because I’m not going to lie I was a wee bit nervous. She is a natural at public speaking and was the perfect person to be up there with. I am thankful for this opportunity and I hope I helped give some fresh ideas for the Waterloo Region.

Chairman’s Club

We made Chairman’s again! In the real estate world the Chairman’s Club is a great accomplishment – it’s a national ranking of sales in all of Royal LePage and I couldn’t be more ecstatic about being in the top 1% of Canada for the second year in a row.

Becoming a member of the Chairman’s Club has been one of my biggest goals as a real estate agent and I’m thrilled we were able to accomplish it in both 2015 and 2016. The top 1% in the country isn’t an easy goal to reach, especially in the crazy market we’ve seen this past year and I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the help and dedication of my team as well as each and every client who’s helped me get this far! Just a few years ago I was a “one-man-show” and now I work with a team of phenomenal, hard-working women who are as driven to make great things happen as I am.

Heading into 2017 we’ve set new goals and intend to work hard until we reach them. We can’t wait to see what the new year has in store and appreciate everyone who’s along for this crazy ride with us. Everyday is a new adventure in this industry and that’s what has us always coming back for more!
