Tania is a local. Her family moved to the Hudson and St Lazare area when she was just 3 years old. Her mother, Janet, started in real estate in 1972, so it’s not surprising that she grew up hearing about real estate daily! Tania’s first open house was when she was five years old as when the babysitter was a no show! Tania spent her youth on the back of a horse, showing competitively through Eastern Canada. She didn’t realize it at the time but the experience gained on her parent’s farm would give Tania the background to successfully assist buyers and sellers in Equestrian properties.
However, Tania made her own way in the business world before returning to her roots and real estate. After finishing her studies at college in Ontario and university in Lyon France, she went on to live in Australia for a brief period. When she returned to Canada she opened a sales and marketing company that promoted sports teams and restaurants. She then successfully expanded her company into Belgium and France where she opened 5 locations. Ten years later life changed with the birth of her son. Wanting him to grow up in her home town, Tania returned to Canada. She took the Real Estate Brokers course then teamed up with her mother and has been an award-winning broker ever since. Several times the team was in the top 1% of Royal LePage brokers in Canada.
Tania later continued her education to become a Chartered Real Estate Broker allowing her to run an agency. In 2009 Tania teamed up with another agent to sell a luxury home by tender auction. Intrigued with auctions, Tania went to Indiana, USA to be trained as an auctioneer. She has since sold many homes by auction in Quebec and has used her auctioneering talents to help out at many of the local charity auctions.
Tania is fortunate to have Janet, a 44-year veteran as her mentor in real estate. She learned many valuable lessons from Janet and can often be heard repeating one of her mother’s many real estate lessons, ‘my mother always told me…’ The sales and marketing experience gained in her previous business has been a strong assets to her real estate career. Always looking for new ways to market, Tania utilizes the latest innovations in technology and social media to ensure the best possible promotion of her client’s homes.
Tania’s local knowledge of the area helps her assist her clients with choosing the right home and neighbourhood for them. She often jokes that being a local in a small town means that she treats her clients like she would her best friend because she is going to see her clients weekly at the grocery store! Tania prides herself in her integrity and on developing long term relationships. She is proud of that fact that one couple she sold a house to in her early career lead to them to referring her to over twenty-five more transactions to their family members. Referrals are the greatest compliment a broker can receive!
Whether it’s a first-time client looking for a family home, horse property, or luxury home Tania will work hard to ensure her clients get the best possible deal and to be with them to advise them through every step of the process.
