Welcome to my favourite niche, where we talk about homes, homes, and more homes!
My name is Shelly, and I am here to help you find and create your dream home. Growing up with two amazing realtors/designers, my parents, I have always had an interest in creating beautiful spaces to live and interact in. My earliest memory is seeing my mom decorate our house with seasonal accents to create a cozy, fresh and beautiful home to come back to at the end of a long day. Soon after, my dad entered the real estate industry and since then, all we can talk about as a family, is homes, and that’s where I found my interest spark even deeper!
I grew up in Brampton, Ontario, where I spent most of my lazy Saturday afternoons watching HGTV and imagined sharing my vast knowledge and interest in the field of design, architecture, and real estate to a greater audience, some day. And, here I am today, doing just that. My undergraduate background in Urban and Regional Planning raised my interest in the North American housing market along with policy and site planning. From there, my parents suggested me getting my real estate license – which is exactly what I did to make those long four month summer breaks a bit more productive and hands on. Before I knew it, I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in one hand and a Realtor license in the other the same year! Since then, I navigated different options from commercial real estate to vacant land sales, and ultimately landed to a place which gave me my “right at home” moment (literally), and joined the family business focusing in residential real estate.
Meeting new people and talking about their interests has always been something I have enjoyed. I thoroughly enjoy both listing a property as well as finding the right property to meet my client’s requirements. I believe that a house is truly a reflection of the lifestyle you have, and thus needs to be accommodating to your day to day business. As much as I like searching and listing properties, I also love the process of staging and creating neutral spaces. It’s my way to bring out the hidden designer and organizer in me.
When I’m not yapping my way through about houses, clients and MLS, I enjoy talking about food, reading, working out, online window shopping, binging on my favourite TV shows (special shoutout to Fixer Upper, Property Brothers, House Hunters International, & Love it or List it!) and most importantly connecting with people virtually and sharing my knowledge and interest through social media platforms and my website.
I hope you find my content informative as well as inspirational and helpful! I look forward to our first meeting where I give you a free house valuation and help you find your dream home.
