I moved to Owen Sound 32 years ago, and have raised by 3 children here. My oldest son has his own Wood Fired Pizza Business, my daughter is multi talented a Doula, Yogi, and is our Marketing Assistant, my youngest is going to run the world someday. I also have 2 grandchildren. I love real estate, and I love renovating. When I am done renovating part of my house, I start again. I have two sisters that live within two blocks and I have 2 big dogs that I hike on my beloved Bruce Trail every day. (weather permitting) One of my favourite things to do in the summer is zip out and take a quick dip in the lake, WOW this makes me happy.

Well ... My wife and I have two young children Finlay and Sophia and our dog Lola. We live on a 100 acre farm in the Municipality of Meaford. As a hobby we have 30 sheep, 5 chickens and 3 miniature donkeys ! I grew up in Grey County and my previous career was an aircraft maintenance engineer (AME) Its amazing how many skills transferred into real estate. Who would have thought !! Moving back to the area after years away was something we always knew we wanted to do and in 2010 we made the move. I truly love serving and all things real estate and focus on rural and farm sales across Grey and Bruce County.

In one way or another, homes have played a big part in my life so the shift to real estate was a natural one. My varied but related experiences have benefited my clients as I guide them through the buying and selling process. It is a journey I thoroughly enjoy. While I happily collaborate with a wide range of clients, I am particularly interested in representing women in transition and, now designated as a Seniors Real Estate Specialist, in assisting seniors selling or seeking new homes. I would be delighted to work with you!

Not sure too many people know this but I originally came to Owen Sound in 1973 or 1974(Jury still out on Year) after I was drafted by the Owen Sound North Star Senior Lacrosse team. I enjoyed Owen Sound so much that I decided to stay and work in Owen Sound. For a time at the ripe age of 22 I ran a small boutique retail operation called the Jean Jungle. I met my wife Marylee after I decided to stay so that worked out pretty well. Still together and coming up on our 42 year anniversary. I loved the Owen Sound area. People on the Street actually said hello to each other. We moved away in 1984 for business reasons.
Spent 20 years plus in the London area working and raising our two Daughters Amy and Laura. We came back to the area by choice in 2006. I retired for a time but found retirement wasn't for me. I need to be in motion. I am certainly in motion now between the Real Estate and out 2 year old Grandson. He's awesome. I still spend some time at the Horse farm our daughter runs close to Markdale.

I'm Natalie and I am the head of marketing for the Advantage Royal Group. I have two wee babes at home: a little lady who is 3-years-old and a man-cub little boy who is just five months old. I am currently on maternity leave and loving every moment. Before the transition to Advantage Royal Group I worked alongside my mama (Wanda). I was her unlicensed assistant, but I like to say I scheduled her every move! It was a funny transition going from talking about real estate with my mom every day to now working alongside her, meeting her clients and really being involved in her every day routine and promoting the business. Some people may call me crazy for choosing to work with family, but for us it works beautifully. For those who know me already in the community, you will know that scheduling my mom's life is not my only passion; I am also a certified prenatal yoga instructor, as well as a Doula for a local maternal support group called Mountain Momma Collective. Supporting women and families while they welcome new little babes earthside has brought a lot of peace and joy to my life. I am excited to jump back in the game with the group come August, but for now am enjoying playgroups, swim dates, baby snuggles, and a lot of diaper changing."
