Coldwell Banker has been in Guelph since the early 1970s, but found its roots ‘in the ashes of the Great San Francisco Earthquake’ of 1906. In 1981 the Coldwell Banker brand became part of Sears, Roebuck & Co. and in 1996 it became part of Cendant and opened its first international office in Toronto. In January 2006, things really picked up… I joined Coldwell Banker Neumann – a company that has had its family and real estate roots in Guelph since 1973.

 
 
Each family has their own unique story – threads that bind us together and make us what we are. A community.

A Unique Real Estate Perspective

When I was a child on the small island of Tobago, I remember keenly watching my mother working on land transactions, affidavits, deeds and titles. I followed in her footsteps and have been involved in hundreds of transactions since 2006. I hold a Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) designation which allows me to facilitate both residential and commercial development transactions around the world. My focus is on real estate in Guelph and surrounding areas, with expertise in the downtown core. I pride myself in understanding the intricacies involved in finding that perfect home in the right neighbourhood across the city.  


Linked to the Community

I’m a local through and through. I attended the University of Guelph, played varsity sports and regularly sponsor community events, such as the Guelph Jazz Festival, the Hillside Festival, the Gospel Festival and Guelph Pride. I’m also proud to be one of the co-founders of the Guelph Black History Society.

 
 

Giving Back

Over the last 8 years, I have been a member of Guelph’s Downtown Advisory Committee, assisting City Council and Staff on issues impacting the economic, social, cultural, environmental, physical and educational conditions of Downtown Guelph. The result is readily evident: Guelph’s downtown core is vibrant and continues to develop with $300M+ in new residential and infrastructure development over the last few years.
