The Art of Real Estate
The road to Real Estate was not an obvious one for Elizabeth, who started out as a successful visual and scenic artist, was at one time declared a top emerging female painter in Australia and Canada, worked in theatre and film and developed a love of nature, and all things natural. But if you know Elizabeth, you’ll also know that her innate ability to connect with people, her ability to visualise, her capacity to understand and, most importantly, her way of telling a story are what makes her successful in what she calls “the art of Real Estate”.
Elizabeth grew up in Ottawa in a home rich in conversation and cultural awareness. Elizabeth’s parents migrated to Canada after World War II to start a new life and raise a new family. Her father was an anthropologist and her mother an artist and homemaker. Both of them passed on to Elizabeth an appreciation of life, not just in an intellectual sense, but also to look at life’s situations and to understand the motivations of what we each do.
The road to Real Estate did not reveal itself until Elizabeth had returned home from over 10 years living in Australia, where the Australian outback informed her art and, its communities her passion for people. Her travels had taught her skills in adapting, getting by on a small budget and learning how to get what she needed in the most direct way possible.
Back in Toronto, Elizabeth saw a chance to work in corporate relocation as a natural opportunity to carve out a new career, one that would allow her to make the most of her skills. Real Estate is a natural companion to relocation, and Elizabeth has been able to merge those people moving branches into a full service package.
14 years later, Elizabeth has won numerous awards including being recognized as one of the top team 1% of Royal LePage Realtors across Canada, as well as regularly appearing in the top ten at Royal LePage Realty Plus.
