Q&A With Vicki:
WHY DID YOU BECOME A REALTOR®?
I became a Realtor, because after about 10 years of running in and out of Open Houses for fun, I thought I should make this my living. It was clear that I had an ongoing interest in Real Estate, but needed the sun, moon and starts to align to make it happen. When my husband and I decided to leave St Catharines and move closer to Toyota to reduce his commute, I took that as my sign to get things started. It was time for my new and exciting adventure to begin. Instead of finding a job; I followed my dream.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PART OF SELLING REAL ESTATE?
My favourite part of Selling Real Estate, where do I begin......I love working with First Time Home Buyers. Seeing how much they learn, and watching them grow during their home buying journey gives me a sense of pride like a parent watching their child graduate or getting married. I love the excitement they have once the right property is acquired, especially if it was a long and winding road for them. I also love how my day can change in the matter of a phone call, text or email. The fact I can honestly say "I don't know what tomorrow will bring" is exciting to me.
WHERE DO YOU LIKE TO TRAVEL?
My husband and I love to travel. It's a new thing for us over the last few years. We love the Beach, Cuba and Punta Cana are our favourite places to spend our time relaxing at this point. We try to get away just the two of us once a year, we also travel with our best friends yearly to a Beach destination in the winter. We call it the Fly and Flop vacation..... #beachhairdontcare
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE BOOKS, MOVIES, SHOWS, BANDS?
Don't laugh at me, but I love the Twilight Series; books and movies. When it comes to movies and TV shows, I like something where I can be entertained and escape for a while. My guilty pleasure are those Real Housewives "Reality" shows. I think I like watching the stupid drama involved between the ladies, reason being; I like to lead a drama free life of my own. When it comes to Bands or music, I like a mixture; including the 80's. I love Maroon 5, Imagine Dragons, Bon Jovi and Neyo to name a few, if I can sit at my desk and still dance; I'm happy.
WHAT'S ONE THING MOST PEOPLE DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU?
I don't know what people don't know about me, lol. I feel I'm an open book. I am a happy go lucky and honest person, believing that it is up to ourselves to make us happy. Who we spend time with and what we do, affect us deeply; and more than we may ever realize. For me, it’s the quality of life I'm looking for; and I can’t imagine life being any better than this. If I could add one more element to my life, I would have a horse again. I was an equestrienne when I was a teenager, owning 2 horses (one at a time), I still love horses to this day. My dad and I still have a daddy daughter date once a year, we go to the main Equestrienne event at the Royal Winter Fair.
