the key to happiness
With a Master’s degree from the Conservatoire de musique du Québec in organ performance and a BAC in musical composition from the University of Ottawa, I approach my work as a real estate broker with as much thoroughness and discipline as music in demanded of me.
To master an instrument as monumental as the organ, I had to be very picky and extremely disciplined, I didn’t have to be afraid of work. So I naturally transpose these qualities into the real estate world that music has demanded of me for over 50 years.
I play the part of the sale of your house that you entrust to me with my usual passion and my absolute dedication! When I made the leap from classical music to real estate, I approached this exciting new challenge with the firm intention of making my working relationship with you as harmonious and easy to hum as our childhood songs!
ZIGGY, FANTÔME, SIMONE, COLETTE AND JÉSUS
I love dogs, and I adore mine ! I am the owner of 5 tea-cup Schnauzers who weight less than 8 pounds each ! But since I am far from being an expert in dog training and dog behavior, I suscribed at a dog school with my most active dog : Jésus. Before you wonder about that choice of name let me tell you that my boy-dogs have opera related names : Ziggy is taken from « Starmania and from David Bowie’s song», Fantôme is taken from « The Phantom of the Opera » (and he is all white !) and Jésus is taken from « Jesus Christ Super Star », and that my girls have famous female French writer’s names : Simone de Beauvoir and Colette ! So, every week, Jésus and I we go to the dog school.
It is amazing to realize what a difference it makes in my life and in the life of my dogs. I learn to understand how they think and how to react towards them so they can become excellent « canine citizens » ! I know that experts in their field have a lot to teach me. I only have expertises in music and in real estate, and besides that, I have to trust other experts knowing that the best of them keep learning and take vocational training to keep at the top of their art. That is why I take regular vocational training in real estate. As a broker it is mandatory that I keep learning and I am lucky, it is easy for me since I love learning and I love school ! So ask me if I miss my classes with Jesus or my training in real estate ? Not at all ! My dogs and real estate are my 2 passions so I stay up to date in my field, I learn every day so I can become better at serving you. I must say that I am not sure that Jésus has the same motivation than me since I suspect he loves his dog school because there is a beautiful black labrador female named Piper waiting for him impatiently every week !

When we say “open a door” we do not always talk about the door of a house but we often mean an opportunity, a new adventure, a new world. I love taking pictures of the doors of the houses that I sold, they are all different and all have been opened on new lives for my clients. The diversity of all these adventures always surprises me, my true HAPPINESS: to knock at your door and take part of your projects and your dreams!
WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY?
I sponsored a contest on 104,7 FM’s radio station. I was asking the listeners to tell me what is making them HAPPY. I received hundred of marvelous answers : the cottage zero services-zero stress, watching tv under a warm blanket with purring kitty cat, family snow shoe trips in the forest, helping an handicap neighbour, skidoo with hubby, watching the wife cook, fill the bird feeders, a rhum & coke at 5, being able to have lunch with a daughter, being woke up by a happy dog, etc ! Yes ! HAPPINESS is simple and it belongs to the person who sees it since it is often pretty small and invisible to others! So where is yours ? Mine is in the smile of my HAPPY clients!
