I have two passions. Real Estate and photography. Real Estate pays the bills. Photography keeps me sane. I enjoy going for hikes with my dog Lola and driving around rural Ontario looking for photo opportunities. I live in Oakville, Ontario,have 4 grown children and also enjoy volunteering and genealogy. I am a broker with RE/MAX Aboutowne Realty Corp. Brokerage and I have been selling homes since 1989. I am a Past President of the Oakville, Milton & District Real Estate Board and currently sit on the Board of Directors for the Realtors Care Foundation Ontario. In 2010 I was honoured to be awarded the Volunteer of the Year Award by the Ontario Real Estate Association..I love Oakville and enjoy the many trails and ravines. Photography became a hobby when I started blogging for real estate a few years ago and needed photos since I didn't want to worry about copyright issues from using internet photos. I want photography to be fun and not work so I don't plan to take any lessons.
