Jessica England - Sales Representative
Hailing from London, Ontario, I initially came to Toronto to obtain my undergraduate degree from the University of Toronto. Upon graduation, I was one of the first employees hired by the National Hockey League after the 2004-2005 season Lock Out. My time spent at the NHL was devoted to working with player personnel on contracts and the rules of the Collecting Bargaining Agreement. As such, I became familiar with the art of negotiation and I believe that this experience prepared me for the obstacles that require added creativity when collaborating within the world of real estate! Part of the strength that comes from an agent is their ability to negotiate on behalf of their clients while holding their best interests at heart. As such, my client's piece of mind remains the focus of every real estate transaction that I'm a part of.A lot of people have asked me why I left the League, and while I loved my time there, since making the switch into real estate at the start of 2010, I haven’t looked back. I guess the transition for me, was motivated by my love for unique homes available within the city of Toronto. By unique I'm referring to location and style. In addition to this, my parents both have a strong passion for real estate and decorating, so I guess you could say that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree!I not only love finding properties for my clients, but also for myself! Since moving to the city, I've found my personal living style to be constantly evolving. From student to professional, I've had the opportunity to study, live and work in a variety of areas around the city such as The Annex, Little Italy, Yorkville, The Entertainment District, Summerhill and now Riverdale. My knowledge of these neighbourhoods from both a personal and professional standpoint enables a unique perspective that I'm able to share with my clients.Whether you're looking to buy, sell or rent I'm confident that I can provide my clients with the tools and services they'll need to make an educated decision. Through my personal and professional experience, I understand that choosing a home is in fact the biggest decision that most of us will make and that it requires a great deal of patience and the right balance of current and future needs. I make sure that my clients weigh all of their options accordingly and promote open and honest communication. Buying or selling your home can be stressful, but I strive to make the transition as smooth as possible with every deal I work on.
