Despina is on a mission to connect female buyers with the home of their dreams. Having run a successful digital marketing company for 15 years, Despina is excited to bring everything she’s learned as a female entrepreneur to the table. She uses her background in marketing and design, her passion for networking and business, and her extensive knowledge of the city and the real estate market to serve her clients better.
“Real estate is in my blood.”
Despina flipped a home (and made a profit) when she was only 16. She’s lived in condos and co-ops, apartments and houses. In addition, she has spent years studying colour theory, texture and light. She’s a sought-after thought leader in the design industry and is also a multiple award winner—most notably for the IABC international Gold Quill Award of Excellence.
Despina understands that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. A design which one person loves for its simplicity and minimalism, another may think is cold and uninviting. That’s why Despina makes it a priority to understand what ‘home sweet home’ means to you, by asking the right questions and actively listening to what you have to say.
From understanding what constitutes your dream home, to viewing a shortlist of possibilities together, to finally finding ‘the one,’ the process continues to inspire and excite her.
“Finding (and falling in love with) a new home is a true passion of mine.”
As the co-founder of Lean In Canada, Despina grew the network to 6,000 members in only 5 years, and has worked with a multitude of amazing women as a result. In addition, she is a strong advocate for the empowerment of women, whether through career progression or home ownership.
Despina has been featured on CBC Radio, Flare Magazine, the National Post, and Sun News Network.
“Over the years, I’ve worked with a multitude of amazing women. I’d love to help you too!”
