Relocating to or from another location or province is stressful in itself, and more so if
you have an entire family to move. Having personally been relocated several times
during my and my spouse’s service with the Canadian Military, I truly understand how
much is involved and the challenges faced when relocating. Now, with over 20 years of
helping individuals and families relocate to and from Cold Lake, I have mastered simple
and effective ways of making the move as easy and stress-free as possible.
I am experienced, knowledgeable and well versed with BGRS IRP. From the first contact,
to closing day, I will take care of all the important details, provide lawyer and home
inspector contacts, and keep you informed at every stage. Navigating an HHT is my specialty.
Finding “The House” within the short timeframe is my specialty! I look forward to
helping you with your relocation to our AMAZING little city!

Knowing first-hand the concerns and needs that come with "pulling up stakes", I work extremely hard to ensure that every detail is considered to make both our new and established Cold Lake residents feel right at home.I am also a Designated Senior Real Estate Specialist® who has received extensive training in helping mature home buyers and sellers. I understand the decision to move can be difficult, and I can navigate your choices and serve as a resource and guide to make your transition as seamless as possible.
