Real estate is not a job for me, it is a passion! Being a realtor has allowed me to merge my experience as a seasoned negotiator with my love of homes and building loyal relationships. As someone who was born into a family of renovators, including construction and kitchen/bath design, I've taken on my share of renovations, with the most recent being a complete gut and remodel of a 110-year-old home. Having a vision of what a home could look like, and making that vision come to life is immensely rewarding. Similarly, I find great reward in helping people with what is generally the largest investment they will make in their lifetime. Most of my clients end up as friends! Whether you’re looking for a starter home, a forever home, or an investment property, I promise to bring integrity, expertise, and honesty to make your home search a seamless process.
Most of who I am as a person comes from having spent fifteen years as a competitive swimmer. I was fortunate enough to represent Canada on the National swim team, and ultimately attended UCLA on an athletic scholarship. Competing in sport at the highest level has provided me with many of the qualities I would hope to find in a realtor: work ethic, passion, and honesty with myself and others. No matter who you choose to work with, make sure you choose someone who cares as much about your home search or sale as you do - if not more so!
Working together with my sister, Lisa Bartello, has been an incredible ride. We both bring different strengths to the table, but if there is one strength we both share, it is our ability to negotiate. With many record-setting sales under our belts, you can rest assured that our team has you covered!
Outside of being a realtor, I am also a real estate investor, an avid writer and a proud mom of two. Both Lisa and I are International Bestselling Authors, having co-authored in the book Empowering Women To Succeed, From Burnout To Victory. When I'm not helping clients or writing, you will likely find me spending time with husband and two young children, enjoying the outdoors or restaurants in the Greater Toronto Area.
