I am Canadian, French and Swiss, how is that for an eclectic mix? I had a very fun career as a radio host at Radio-Canada, then as a TV writer, host, director and producer at TVOntario. But Real Estate is my full time passion now. With my husband Frédéric, we have bought, renovated and sold several houses. We also transformed an ugly little building into one of the most beautiful, authentically Parisian bistro in North America, first on Queen Street west and now at 432 Wellington Street West (www.leselect.com).

I lived in High Park, Riverdale, Cabbagetown and now in Moore Park. I truly believe my passé as a daily, live radio host, interviewing artists, writers, politicians, philosophers and villains has been a fantastic training ground. I know how to listen, I understand people’s needs. I have sold numerous houses and condos all over the city, and helped many clients to find and buy their dream home. I fought many multiple offers and won many wars (they say my French accent is an asset?)

My clients say I am endlessly patient, how could I not be? The decision to buy or sell a house is one of the most important in someone’s life. It needs time, education, information. And honestly, I enjoy going around, discovering neighbourhoods, secrets back alleys or dead-ends, charming houses, authentic lofts, stunning condos.
