Get to Know Corinne in Ten Questions:
1.What made you decide to get into real estate?
I worked for an investment firm and started researching the real estate side more and started to obtain an interest for it. I then started to work for a Toronto condo developer where I began to study for my Real Estate Exams & once they were completed I made the transition full time. I also love meeting and working with new people so I needed a career that allowed for this – plus I love interior design so it all made sense .

Dinners and drinks with friends – either out or one of us hosting…or me cuddling my puppy pretending to be to busy to go out.

My client wanted me to bring my new puppy to showings and my puppy peed on his lap (second time meeting him)…luckily he thought it was funny and I was still able to get 3 transactions out of it
4. Who stands out to you / do you most admire in the business world right now?
A special someone in my life who helps me pushes me to grow everyday

Power – Duke Dumont
7. Describe your dream home in three words.
Modern, Bright and Big
8. Where do you see yourself in five years?
Growing my business so that I can have the ability to work more remotely while traveling
9. When you’re not wheeling + dealing real estate, what can we find you doing?
Cooking and putting together new recipes, long walks/runs with my dog Pedro & visiting friends/family
