Understanding how to “build” is at the foundation of Gillian’s natural repertoire of dynamic qualities. From building a reputation as a nationally ranked competitive figure skater in her youth; to building a multi-million-dollar PR firm with offices in Los Angeles and San Francisco in her 30’s; to designing and building custom homes upon her return to Toronto; Gillian knows that to build anything successful in life you need an unlimited amount of determination and unwavering dedication. It should come as no surprise that when Gillian entered the real estate industry, in one of the most competitive markets in North America, she brought this same passionate philosophy and stamina to quickly become ranked in the Top 100 Agents out of 40,000+ in just five short years.
Her lifelong passion for design is an invaluable asset as she styles and stages sellers’ homes through her impeccably trained eye and then just as deftly navigates her buyers through the process of understanding what features to look for, which to avoid, and the effort and expense required to transform a property to its full potential. Or sometimes, more importantly, how to appreciate the quality of a well done new build or renovation which can be daunting to those without the knowledge of having built their own home - quite literally - from the ground up.
Demonstrating leadership in the field and a strong sense of collegiality, she frequently receives calls from other agents asking for her advice and recommendations on listings for their buyers. Gillian’s strong intuition and ability to identify and understand her client’s needs allows her to respond quickly – sometimes anticipating client needs even before they have been articulated.
When she is not spending time with her family and two amazing dogs – Argo & Leo - Gillian can still be found at the skating rink doing a spin or two, skiing or playing tennis or enjoying all that Toronto has to offer from the fabulous art galleries to the amazing restaurants and the city life.
