Linda (r) with 1985 SOLD home with client Linda Smith (l).

My GOAL is your SUCCESS!

Linda (r) with first successful SOLD for homeowner Linda Smith (l), 1985.

Are you looking to buy or sell your home? As your full-time Royal LePage sales representative, I'm committed to professionally guide you every step of the way. 

Whether marketing your property or helping you look for a new home, I'll work diligently to ensure your best interests are met and you achieve optimum results. I know how stressful this all can be, and I'll work hard to make the process as smooth as possible for you. 

A bit about my background. I've chosen Barrie as my home since 2003, growing up in Toronto and then Richmond Hill and Newmarket. I started as a residential sales representative with Royal LePage in Richmond Hill helping clients from 1984-1990. After the birth of our third child, I worked part-time evenings and weekends as a Personal Loans & Mortgage Manager while completing university.

My career then moved into the charitable sector where I held leadership positions raising more than $170 million through major and planned gifts (including gifts of real estate) in healthcare, international development, and the arts.

I've dedicated myself to community causes, having volunteered on Boards and Committees in the philanthropic sector (10 years at Georgian College), and have worked with legal and financial advisors in the GTA as well as locally through the Planned Giving Council of Simcoe County. I proudly attained the CFRE (Certified Fund Raising Executive) international designation in 1998, and have enjoyed being a mentor to many in the field.

In 2018, I retired from the sector to follow my life career plan - a return to real estate - once again completing the real estate courses and landing at Royal LePage on my birthday in May 2019. Best gift ever! 

Happily married forever with 3 terrific grown children and one much-loved little grandson. Walking the trails on Kempenfelt Bay makes me smile, and I'm a member of the Barrie Garden Club and Barrie Curling Club. While I love to travel, I love returning home even more. We live in the most beautiful place imaginable.
