Welcome to my website!

The vivid memories of my childhood are still with me today when I am walking by houses in the neighborhood. I still remember how fascinated I was every time I visited a new house. Although I was always interested in the design and architecture of the buildings, I knew what made them meaningful was the people who lived in them. Years passed and I carried on this passion without knowing that I can also be part of this fascinating world.

In my 25-year career as a nurse and holistic practitioner I never thought what nursing and real estate have in common. I’ve been serving my clients, caring for them, and supporting them until they are back to being healthy again. I learned to focus on my clients’ needs before thinking about mine. I learned to be a good listener, a loyal advocate, and a creative problem solver. Now I can see how these capabilities can serve my clients in real estate. They can have someone by their side, who understands their needs, their worries, and their fears, someone who cares for them and guides them until they reach their goals. Someone who can help them find joy in the process, and experience as little stress as possible while supporting them to make informed decisions.

Living and working in GTA for the past 20 years, I am well aware of the unique challenges of real estate in this area, and I am confident that this knowledge would serve my clients well in fulfilling their needs. I also bring my personal real estate investment experience to better serve and understand the unique needs of my investor clients.

Having Century 21 Atria staff by my side, I feel confident that my clients will be satisfied with their outcomes. I am very fortunate to be part of a team of professional and experienced agents who are willing to share their knowledge and provide guidance and support as needed. With their help and my commitment to excellence, I can guarantee my clients’ satisfaction.

Whether you’re dreaming of finding a house to call home, or selling your home and moving on, I’ll be honored to help you make your dream come true.

10 Secrets Every New Home Buyer Should Know
Get FREE Instant Access!!!
Although most homes for sale are resales, one out of four homebuyers purchases a new home. Which is better: existing or new?

The right answer, of course, is up to you. Both resales and new homes offer advantages. Existing homes are less expensive on average, and are generally closer to, and enjoy the warmth and surroundings of, established neighbourhoods. New homes, on the other hand, offer innovative use of space, modern energy efficiency, and choices of options and upgrades. What's more, everything is new - even the neighbours.

The choice that's right for you depends on many things: your finances, your family composition and your taste. The fact of the matter is, most buyers consider both new and resale homes before they decide.

A new special report has just been released which identifies 10 secrets every new home buyer should know, including little-known buyer advantages that most builders won't divulge unless pressed.

Order this FREE report NOW to find out what issues should impact your decision about whether to buy new or resale.

HOW TO STOP PAYING RENT And Own Your Own Home Don’t Pay Another Cent in Rent to Your Landlord… It’s a dream we all have—to own our own home and stop paying rent. But if you’re like most renters, you feel trapped within the walls of a house or apartment that doesn’t feel like yours. How could it when you’re not even permitted to bang in a nail or two without a hassle. You feel like you’re stuck in the renter’s rut with no way of rising up out of it and owning your own home. Don’t Feel Trapped Anymore It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been renting, or how insurmountable your financial situation may seem. The truth is, there are some little known facts that can help you get over the hump, and transfer your status from renter to homeowner. With this information, you will begin to see how you really can: • save for a downpayment • stop lining your landlord’s pockets and • stop wasting thousands of dollars on rent There are many important issues you should be aware of that affect you as a renter. Why on earth would you continue to lose thousands by throwing it away on rent when, with your agent, you could take a few minutes to discuss your specific needs so that you can stop renting and start owning. This conversation costs you nothing. And, of course, you shouldn’t have to feel obligated to buy a home at the time you review this. But by taking the time to explore your options, and learn about the ways you can afford to buy a home, think how prepared and relaxed you’ll be when you are ready to make this important step. 6 Little Known Facts That Can Help You Buy Your First Home The problem that most renters face isn’t their ability to meet a monthly payment. Goodness knows that you must meet this monthly obligation every 30 days already. The problem is accumulating enough capital to make a downpayment on something more permanent But saving for this lump sum doesn’t have to be as difficult as you might think. Consider the following 6 important points: 1. You can buy a home with much less down than you think. There are some government programs (such asthe first time buyer programs) to help people getinto the housing market. You can qualify as a first time buyer even if your spouse has owned a home before as long as your name was not registered. Ensure your real estate agent is informed and knowledgeable in this important area and can offer programs to help you with your options. 2. You may be able to get your lender to help you with your down-payment and closing costs. Even if you do not have enough cash for a down-payment, if you are debt-free, and own an asset free and clear (such as a car), your lending institution may be able to lend you the down-payment for your home by securing it against this asset. 3. You may be able to find a seller to help you buy and finance your home. Some sellers may be willing to hold a second mortgage for you as a “seller take-back”. In this case, the seller becomes your lending institution. Instead of paying this seller a lump-sum full amount for his or her home, you would pay monthly mortgage installments. 4. You may be able to create a cash down-payment without actually going into debt By borrowing money for certain investments to a specified level, you may be able to generate a significant tax refund for yourself that you can use as a down-payment. While the money borrowed for these investments is technically a loan, the monthly amount paid can be small, and the money invested in both home and investment will be yours in the end. 5. You can buy a home even if you have problems with your credit rating. If you can come up with more than the minimum down-payment, or can secure the loan with other equity, many lending institutions will consider you for a mortgage. Alternatively, a seller take-back mortgage could also help you in this situation. 6. You can, and should, get preapproved for a home loan before you go looking for a home. Preapproval is easy, and can give you complete peace-of-mind when shopping for your home. Mortgage experts can obtain written preapproval for you at no cost and no obligation, and it can all be done quite easily over the phone. More than just a verbal approval from your lending institution, a written preapproval is as good as money in the bank. It entails a completed credit application and a certificate which guarantees you a mortgage to the specified level when you find the home you’re looking for. Consider dealing only with a professional who specializes in mortgages. Enlisting their services can make the difference between obtaining a mortgage and being stuck in the renter’s rut forever. Typically, there is no cost or obligation to enquire. Not intended to solicit property currently listed for sale. Copyright © Craig Proctor Productions 2017

  1. The 9 Step System To Get Your Home SOLD FAST And For TOP DOLLAR!

    The Real Estate Market Has Changed…
    Remember not so long ago, when you could make your fortune in real estate. It was nothing then to buy a home, wait a short while, and then sell it at a tidy profit. And then do it all over again. Well, as you probably know, times have changed. As good as the market is right now, home prices are still below what they were at their peak. Buyers are far more discriminating, and a large percentage of the homes listed for sale never sell. It’s more critical than ever to learn what you need to know to avoid costly seller mistakes in order to sell
    your home fast and for the most amount of money.
    The 7 Deadly Mistakes Most Home sellers Make
    1. Failing to analyze why they are selling.
    2. Not preparing their home for the buyer’s eye.
    3. Pricing their homes incorrectly.
    4. Selling too hard during showings.
    5. Signing a long-term listing agreement without a written performance guarantee.
    6. Making it difficult for buyers to get information on their homes.
    7. Failing to obtain a pre-approved mortgage for one’s next home.
    The 9 Step System to Get Your Home Sold Fast and For Top Dollar Selling your home is one of the most important steps in your life.This 9 step system will give you the tools you need to maximize your profits, maintain control, and reduce the stress that comes with the home-selling process:
    1. Know why you’re selling, and keep it to yourself.
    The reasons behind your decision to sell affect everything from setting a price to deciding how much time and money to invest in getting your home ready for sale. What’s more important to you: the money you walk away with, the length of time your property is on the market or both? Different goals will dictate different strategies.
    However, don’t reveal your motivation to anyone else or they may use it against you at the negotiating table. When asked, simply say that your housing needs have changed.
    2. Do your homework before setting a price.Settling on an offering price shouldn’t be done lightly. Once you’ve set your price, you’ve told buyers the absolute maximum they have to pay for your home, but pricing too high is as dangerous as pricing too low. Remember that the average buyer is looking at 15-20 homes at the same time they are considering yours. This means that they have a basis of comparison, and if your home doesn’t compare favorably with others in the price
    range you’ve set, you won’t be taken seriously by prospects or agents. As a result, your home will sit on the market for a long time and, knowing this, new buyers on the market
    will think there must be something wrong with your home.
    3. More homework. (In fact, your agent should do this for you). Find out what homes in your own and similar
    neighborhoods have sold for in the past 6-12 months, and research what current homes are listed for. That’s certainly how prospective buyers will assess the worth of your home.
    4. Find a good real estate agent to represent your needs.
    Nearly three-quarters of homeowners claim that they wouldn’t use the same realtor who sold their last home. Dissatisfaction boils down to poor communication which results in not
    enough feedback, lower pricing and strained relations.
    5. Maximize your home’s sales potential.
    Each year, corporate North America spends billions on product and packaging design. Appearance is critical, and it would be foolish to ignore this when selling your home. You may not be able to change your home’s location or floor plan, but you can do a lot to improve its appearance. The look and feel of your home generates a greater emotional response
    than any other factor. Before showings clean like you’ve never cleaned before. Pick up, straighten, unclutter, scrub, scour and dust. Fix everything, no matter how insignificant it
    may appear. Present your home to get a “WOW” response from prospective buyers.
    Allow the buyers to imagine themselves living in your home The decision to buy a home is based on emotion, not logic. Prospective buyers want to try on your home just like
    they would a new suit of clothes. If you follow them around pointing out improvements or if your decor is so different that it’s difficult for a buyer to strip it away in his or her
    mind, you make it difficult for them to feel comfortable enough to imagine themselves an owner.
    6. Make it easy for prospects to get information on your home.
    You may be surprised to know that some marketing tools that most agents use to sell homes (eg. traditional open houses) are actually not very effective. In fact only 1% of
    homes are sold at an open house.
    Furthermore, the prospects calling for information on your home value their time as much as you do. The last thing they want to be subjected to is either a game of telephone tag with an agent, or an unwanted sales pitch. Make sure the ads your agent places for your home are attached to a 24 hour prerecorded hotline with a specific ID#
    for your home which gives buyers access to detailed information about your property
    day or night, 7 days a week, without having to talk to anyone. It’s been proven that 3 times as many buyers call for information on your home under this system. And remember, the more buyers you have competing for your home the better, because it sets up an auction-like atmosphere that puts you in the driver’s seat.
    7. Know your buyer.
    In the negotiation process, your objective is to control the pace and set the duration.
    What is your buyer’s motivation? Does s/he need to move quickly? Does s/he have enough money to pay you your asking price? Knowing this information gives you the
    upper hand in the negotiation because you know how far you can push to get what you want.
    8. Make sure the contract is complete.
    For your part as a seller, make sure you disclose everything. Smart sellers proactively go above and beyond legal requirements to disclose all known defects to their buyers
    in writing. If the buyer knows about a problem, s/he can’t come back with a lawsuit later on. Make sure all terms, costs and responsibilities are spelled out in the contract of
    sale, and resist the temptation to diverge from the contract. For example, if the buyer requests a move-in prior to closing, just say no. Now is not the time to take any chances
    of the deal falling through.
    9. Don’t move out before you sell.
    Studies have shown that it is more difficult to sell a home that is vacant because it looks forlorn, forgotten, simply not appealing. It could even cost you thousands. If you move,
    you’re also telling buyers that you have a new home and are probably highly motivated to sell fast. This, of course, will give them the advantage at the negotiating table.

How to Avoid Costly Housing Mistakes Before and After a Divorce

Richmond Hill, Aurora, Newmarket - Divorce is rarely easy and often means a lot of difficult decisions. One of the most important decisions is what to do about the house.

In the midst of the heavy emotional and financial turmoil, what you need most is some non-emotional, straightforward, specific information and answers. Once you know how a divorce affects your home, your mortgage and taxes, critical decisions are easier. Neutral, third party information can help you make logical, rather than emotional, decisions.

Probably the first decision is whether you want to continue living in the house. Will the familiar surroundings bring you comfort and emotional security, or unpleasant memories? Do you want to minimize change by staying where you are, or sell your home and move to a new place that offers a new start? Only you can answer those questions, but there will almost certainly be some financial repercussions to your decision process. What can you afford? Can you manage the old house on your new budget? Is refinancing possible? Or is it better to sell and buy? How much house can you buy on your new budget?

To help you know what questions you should ask and how to arrive at the right answer for your specific situation, a FREE special report has been prepared by industry experts entitled "Divorce: What You Need to Know About Your House, Your Mortgage and Taxes".

  • …shopping for the best financing should start long beforeyou start shopping for a home.”

Best Financing
When you’re looking to buy a home, the first
thing most homebuyers do is start the process of househunting. However, experience
proves that this is one of the last steps you
should be taking if you want to get the most
home for the least amount of money. In fact,
shopping for the best financing should start
long before you start shopping for a home.
This report outlines 3 important steps you
should take to obtain the best financing
rates when you buy a home. Read on to find
out where you can enquire, what questions
you should ask, and how to manage the process to your personal advantage.

3-Point Plan
3 Critical Questions to Ask
When you’re looking for an agent to assist
you in finding a home, make sure you find out
the answers to these important questions:
1. Can you get me quick, easy and FREE
mortgage preapproval?
2. Can I get preferred access to special low
down payments, monthly payments and
interest rates?
3. Can I get special advance notice of listings that computer-match my homebuying criteria?
You owe it to yourself to benefit from these
cost saving benefits.

1. Get Preapproved for a Mortgage . . .
Getting preapproved for a mortgage will give
you a number of important benefits including emotional security in the house-hunting
process, and insurance against rising interest rates in the market place. Preapproval is
easy, and can give you complete peace-ofmind when shopping for your home. Mortgage brokers can obtain written preapproval for you at no cost and no obligation. More
than just a verbal approval from your lending
institution, a written preapproval is as good
as money in the bank. It entails a completed credit application, and a certificate which
guarantees you a mortgage to the specified
level when you find the home you’re looking for. Preapproval means no last minute
shopping around for money and rates. With
a preapproved mortgage, if rates go up, you
still get the preapproved rate, but if rates go
down, you receive the lower rate.
2. Receive Preferred Access to
Special Low Financing . . .
Agents that conduct hundreds of real estate
transactions every year may be able to offer you certain negotiating advantages with
lending institutions. These lenders are often
anxious to do business with such agents
and their clients, and may be willing to extend better than average rates.

This can make purchasing a home much
easier and more affordable for many buyers to qualify for a minimum down payment,
and low monthly payments. Therefore many
more buyers can own the home of their
dreams much sooner than they ever thought
possible.
3. Househunting Service…
Most agents offer a house-hunting service
to make it easier for you to find the home
you want. Through these programs you can
find out in advance which homes on the
market match your homebuying criteria. To
do this you simply provide your agent with a
brief description of the type of home you’re
looking for, for example, number of bedrooms, price range, neighborhood and so
on. Then you should receive advance notice
(including pictures) of all the homes for sale
that match your requirements. This will give
you the competitive edge to find out before
other buyers which homes that are likely to
be of interest to you. Because you are there
before most other buyers, perhaps you can
even negotiate a better price. You can then
drive by these homes, without the assistance of an agent, to see which ones you
want to view. Then it’s simply a matter of you
advising your agent about which homes you
like and want to see.
