I have been selling real estate in the Halifax-Dartmouth area for more than 22 years. I bring knowledge, experience and passion to everything I do and to the people I work with.

As part of Keller Williams Realty, I offer the value and reach of one of the most recognized names in real estate in a boutique real estate environment. I take pride in offering my clients personalized service – no job is too big or too small. I get the big picture but never overlook the small details.I take the time to listen to my clients and understand your needs. Whether you are buying a new home, want to sell your existing home, looking at building a home or looking for an investment, I can help!

With the power of Keller Williams systems my reach is local, national and international. We utilize technology to streamline and expedite routine things allowing me to provide hands-on and personal service. The team environment of Keller Williams Realty ensures that there is always someone available to assist you.

Professionally Speaking…

In addition to selling real estate in Halifax, Dartmouth and the surrounding areas, I am also an Owner with my husband, Andrew in Whitestone Developments, a new home construction and renovation company. We also own and operate Safe and Sound Storage and other buildings both residential and commercial.

Through Whitestone Developments, we build houses and communities that people want to live in, looking out for both the clients needs and the needs of the environment. We like to think of “Build Smart” as a way to meet the needs of the homeowner while providing added comfort, energy efficiency and lessening the impact on the environment at the same time. While “Green” building looks at how a home will lessen impact on the world, “Build Smart” looks at that and how the people within those homes will be affected.

We are very proud of the fact that Whitestone Developments has won many awards in the building industry and was named Consumer Choice Builder of the year in 2011. Being part of this great company I get to help lots of clients achieve their real estate dreams by providing a high quality, custom built home for them to enjoy. I also get to work on the establishment of new developments in the area with a focus on building and providing a quality lifestyle within HRM.

As part of the building industry I am currently serving as the Chair of the Marketing Committee of the Nova Scotia Home Builders Association and I am a past-president of the NSHBA.

I have been honored to be included in the PROFIT W100 ranking of Canada’s Top Female Entrepreneurs for the past six years.

A Little About Me Personally

I come from a small town in Newfoundland where I learned my work ethic from both my mother and father. I attended St Mary’s University and have lived in Halifax a good portion of my life.

I am the very proud mother of two great children who have grown up involved in both the real estate and construction businesses. They know the importance of being involved and often help in the business with whatever needs to be done, even cleaning up a job site!

It is important to me to have a good work-life balance. Andrew and I take the time to be involved with the kids, to make time for family vacations and to have our children be part of what we do. I believe it is a big part of our success.

Giving Back

I believe in giving back to the community that we live and work in and to the people who support us. Andrew and I support various charities and community events through the Nova Scotia Home Builders Care Program.

New Home Construction

New Home Construction is a specialty that I have developed through my ownership in Whitestone Developments. I take pride in helping clients find the right home that fits their lifestyle – from where the house is located to the design and finishes that make it their own.
