In Real Estate, every day is a new day and never boring. I am fortunate to have this opportunity to meet and count as friends so many people from all walks of life, both as clients and associates in the real estate world.

There is a synergy in working in a team such as this. The combined experience and knowledge is invaluable. I also have access to suppliers, builders, photographers and support staff that I can trust. These are the people who assist us in doing our job.



Buying and selling can be a stressful and emotional time. I endeavour to provide qualified advice and service from start to finish and support my clients so that they have an informed, and hopefully stressless experience.


Gillian recently acted as my realtor when I made the tough decision to sell a house I had lived in for nearly 20 years. I can’t say enough about how easy Gillian made the entire experience. Her professionalism is unquestionable and her many years in the industry have given her insights to issues I wouldn’t have otherwise considered. She’s down to earth, funny and responded to my emails, even when she was out of the country.

The house sold quickly and without any complications . Thank you Gillian for absolutely everything you did. ~ Mary McKinney

Gillian successfully closed the sale after arduous skillful, honest negotiation, resulting in a fair deal for all. Gillian, demonstrates she is dedicated to meeting her clients needs through intense efforts in identifying and understanding all aspects of your real estate requirements, intellectual and emotional. (All achieved in a most professional manner) She is very focused on detail and provides excellent market analysis on listings prior to showings. Her knowledge of the real estate market coupled with her skill set and experience is invaluable, and I saw this from both the sellers and buyers perspective. I would not hesitate to recommend her services. ~ Meg Folan (nee Edgar)
