Q&A With Jodi:
WHY DID YOU BECOME A REALTOR®?
I didn’t choose real estate, real estate chose me. It’s been my career for my entire adult life, in all areas of the field. My career in real estate began in 1997 (21 years ago) when I was hired as an evening office administrator at a local real estate office. I quickly and efficiently learned the paperwork side of real estate. I was offered a full time position as an unlicensed assistant with one of Brantford’s top realtors at the time, a position that I held for many years. When I was on maternity leave with my daughter Haley, I decided that I would start taking the real estate courses. It was the logical next step. In 2005 I became a full time licensed realtor and I have been loving it ever since.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PART OF SELLING REAL ESTATE?
My favourite part of selling real estate is helping people find the place they call home. Home is where the heart is, and I love that my family, friends and clients feel that they can entrust me with this task. I enjoy hunting down the house that they describe to me as what they want in a home. Whether my clients are upsizing, downsizing, first time homebuyers, looking for a condo or investment property, I am happy to share my knowledge with them , answer all their questions, and I absolutely love when it all comes together! I also enjoy the relationships that I have created with many new clients, who I now call friends.
WHERE DO YOU LIKE TO TRAVEL?
My husband and I have travelled to Dominican Republic, Cuba, Florida and many other kid friendly places, Darien Lake in Buffalo, Cedar Point in Ohio, and lots of trips to Niagara falls! We enjoy spending some of our free time camping with family in St. Williams, and other parks throughout Ontario.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE BOOKS, MOVIES, SHOWS, BANDS?
Favorite Movies: Pretty Woman, Ghost, Mama Mia, Twighlight Saga, The NoteBook, Pitch Perfect to name a few! Chick Flicks for sure, my friends and I have” girl only” movie nights out whenever there is a good one!
Favorite Music: I love any kind of music! I am an avid concert goer. My first concert was Tom Cochrane in the early 90’s. Followed by many years of Edgefest concerts. Most recently I have been to see Tragically Hip, Hedley, Our Lady Peace, I Mother Earth, USS, Marianna’s Trench, Carey Underwood, Garth Brooks, Justin Bieber, One Direction, Maroon 5, Def Leppard, and soon Ed Sheeran.
WHAT'S ONE THING MOST PEOPLE DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU?
Only my close friends and family know that I love to cook and bake! And I’m pretty darn good at it! Who knows, maybe one day I will open my own restaurant/bakery somewhere!
