Q&A With Melody:

WHY DID YOU BECOME A REALTOR®?

I have always had a passion for all things Real Estate.  To be an integral part of a clients journey as they search for their starter home or forever home; It humbles me beyond words. 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PART OF SELLING REAL ESTATE?

My favourite part of selling real estate is the thrill of the hunt.  From the early onset of gathering what each client is looking for in a home, to putting dreams to pavement, and finally to paper.  It is helping them paint the picture of their new beginnings in their new home. 

WHERE DO YOU LIKE TO TRAVEL?

My husband and I love to travel south!  We have most recently been to Cuba and  St. Maarten. Everything about exploring the culture of new countries is something we hope to continue to do throughout our marriage.  We also enjoy travelling with the kids to Lake Erie to spend time at the beach and to go out on the boat!

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE BOOKS, MOVIES, SHOWS, BANDS?

I enjoy many genres of fiction books; and spend as much time as possible in my evenings reading.  I love watching all things comedy! A good laugh is always in order while raising 4 children. Although finding time to watch TV is limiting, I always find time to force my husband to watch the bachelor each week.

WHAT'S ONE THING MOST PEOPLE DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU?

I love animals and am very passionate about doing my part to help give my time and money to great causes such as the SPCA to ensure all animals are cared for properly.  I do the SPCA walk-a-thon, and sell “pet baskets” at Christmas to raise funds for the shelter.
