Victoria grew up in Burlington and moved, briefly, to Waterloo after the birth of her first child. Burlington always felt like home – a great place to raise a family – so she returned to Burlington, and has lived in the city for the past 11 years. Devoted to her three children, Victoria was a stay-at-home mom for many years and returned to the workforce when her youngest child started school.
Before entering the real estate industry, Victoria worked as an administrator at other companies. It was when she started working in real estate two years ago, that Victoria knew she had found her fit. Working in a real estate environment gives Victoria a sense of helping the team to help families find the perfect home.
Although she works behind the scenes, Victoria loves learning all there is to know. She enjoys performing all the background work freeing up the agents to spend their time focusing on and working tirelessly to ensure the best for their clients. Victoria feels the agents she reports to “make me feel valued and part of the team.”
