"She has been around the block” is an understatement when it comes to her work and life experience. Her passion for people, relationship building, and helping others has taken her on a journey that has lead to real estate. Starting out in the Banking industry, Velvet moved to B.C. in 1972 to work with a steel and metal company. This expanded to a multi-million dollar company from only three employees to Velvet managing sixty employees in a short time frame. Her love for real estate began in BC when her and her husband owned many rental properties. She then moved to Ontario growing a business nationally and selling it in 1999 as one of the most interesting deals in Ontario. She then developed her business skills even further in the corporate world when she entered the Insurance industry, obtaining her health, OTL license, plus certifications in commercial, farm and home, plus investments funds. She then moved into the design world helping families pull their houses into the homes of their dreams. Her skills have always led her to real estate, so becoming a real estate sales representative to help with her client’s lifestyle real estate changes came to her naturally. The years spent at her home in Hockley Valley and with a home in the City allows her to have the knowledge of country properties, from weekend to full time vacation homes to condo and city living.
