Meet the Team
Leaving a successful career in the fitness industry, Shirley took a leap of faith on the advice of a mentor and jumped into Real Estate with both feet. New to Mississauga and not really knowing anyone, she began learning the neighbourhoods and meeting people. Her favorite activity was hosting open houses. Learning about the great Real Estate diversity and local amenities helped her fast track her knowledge of the local neighbourhoods. Quickly identifying the needs and wants of consumers she was tireless in finding that right fit. “There really isn’t a better feeling than when your clients feel that you were able to help them find their dream home”.
Shifting gears when it was time to raise her two boys, she was always in the loop helping Stephen with their growing business. With the boys in school full time she rejoined Stephen, really focusing in on clients that really wanted to buy “Their Dream Home”. Having developed a large network of contacts and being engaged in the community allowed her to bring a whole other level of expertise to the table. Clients often talk about her patience, listening skills and her commitment to getting the job done as her biggest assets.
Having participated in various triathlons and half marathons, her passion remains playing hockey, participating in several leagues in Mississauga & Oakville. A proud supporter of KW Cares, she is also a co-sponsor of the annual Streetsville Bread & Honey Road race. She also volunteers her time helping kids stay active with the Sun Rype TRiKiDS Triathlon Series. She assists children ages 3-15 as they participate in fun filled swim, bike & run events all over Canada.
Watching Shirley hit the ground running, Stephen also got licensed in 1988. New to Mississauga, he quickly drew on his knowledge of the condo market having bought and sold several while working in the fitness industry. Times were tough in the early 90’s. Rates were high, prices were falling and the economy wasn’t the best. His Broker told him that this was the best market to learn in. “Once you understood how things work in a down cycle you are prepared for anything”.
Adding his Broker designation in 1993, he was fortunate to speak on several “Top Producer” panels. Happy to share his success with his peers he was able to learn from some of the very best in the business. “Over time the number of homes you sell becomes a distant second to how well you can service your clients needs”. Those satisfied clients are the life blood of any long term success. A referral from a past client remains the highest compliment you can get. Clients, friends & neighbours that pass along our name are trusting you to deliver results. Over the past 5 years 93% of our business comes from past and referred clients.
But life is not all about Real Estate for Stephen. A cancer survivor, he knows full well that being in and enjoying the moment are oh so important. Coaching minor hockey for various ages and organizations over the past two decades allow him the opportunity to help others enjoy Canada’s great game. Having run the Boston Marathon and completed Ironman Florida along with dozens of other road races and triathlons, he understands about setting goals and reaching out of your comfort zone to make things happen. As the voice of Sun Rype TRiKiDS triathlon series, he cherishes his role as the race announcer for thousands of kids 3-15 year of age. “Calling out their names as they complete their swim, bike and run and hit the finish line feeling like a champ ...well all I can say is you have got to be there. I promise you goose bumps.” A proud supporter of KW Cares and happy to be sponsoring, yet again, his favorite local race the Streetsville Bread and Honey 15K,5K & 1K runs.
