Colleen has a unique mix of skills and experience. Her natural interest in staging and organizing began when she was a young girl. Colleen grew up in south-west Toronto, and has lived in Weston, Lakeview, Cooksville (Mississauga), Burlington, York, and now resides in St. Catharines. She was a middle child in a family of 8 children. Her father, besides working full-time shift work to support 8 children, purchased and sold fixer upper homes – formerly referred to as handyman specials! Colleen frequently helped her parents to clean, paint, and repair, the handyman specials. Her parents would rent out the houses and when the time was right, flip them for a profit. Colleen was intrigued and fascinated with the entire purchasing, repairing, and re-selling process. She learned that real estate is possibly the biggest and best investment most people make in their lifetimes. Equipped with incredible life experience and real estate expertise she purchased her 1st home at only 21 years old. Since then she has bought and sold 7 other homes, making substantial improvements prior to selling - such as kitchen, bathroom, and basement upgrades, roof repairs, flooring, windows, doors, etc… In every instance investment equity increased!
Real estate also helped her through when times were tough, particularly when she was a single mom supporting 4 kids and struggling to make ends meet. Home renovating, selling and relocating kept her and her kids afloat.
A life lesson learned by Colleen is that when a home is well maintained and sold at the right time, the investment will be profitable!
In 2011 Colleen suffered a devastating life changing event that altered her life forever. That event was a turning point, and she knew it was time for a major life change. In 2013 after many years in the corporate world she launched her own business and began living her passion.
Colleen is a creative, passionate entrepreneur with compassion, enthusiasm, integrity and an intense desire to help others succeed while building her own successful and profitable business.
