WHAT IS THE VISION FOR YOUR BUSINESS IN THE NEXT 5 YEARS?
I would like to have a larger team of professionals all working for the common goal of serving our clients better. I would like to develop small residential projects in the city. My biggest goal is to have a property that houses single moms for approx 3-5 years, a space for them to finish school and start their careers without the barriers of raising children. I want to subsidize these women in order for them to realize their potential...this is going to need lots of love and funding.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR FIRST EXPERIENCE AT A MANYATTA EVENT
My very first experience at Manyatta was a year ago. and it was one of the best networking events I had attended, seriously! They gave out a name tag sticker that said “ask me about” and it prompted people to ask about the topic they listed. Everyone was warm and welcoming, I remember feeling that sense of belonging and none of the usual anxiety that plagues me when in a room of all strangers. I Loved, Loved Loved that there was great talent in the room and I remember posting on my social media platforms that this was the best networking event I had attended! Since then I don't believe I have missed an event and look forward to the next one!
YOUR NETWORKING PHILOSOPHY
My networking philosophy involves fact finding, ask questions, looking for commonalities and building relationships. I don't need to make it about what I do, that will come up by default. I had dinner with someone I met a a networking event recently. We connected the following weekend and had a wonderful time while conducting business. To me, this is what networking is about, finding and connecting with people you have similarities with and building your personal and professional network!
WHAT SHOULD WE KNOW ABOUT YOU PERSONALLY
She loves to travel the world and is convinced that if more people travel, they would have the opportunity to see that all people are more similar than they are different.
She is the soul parent of her daughter Kaila, who is her heart, everything she does is for her. Juggling the world of a soul parent with real estate is no easy task… like a boot camp for business. She has learned time management, the art of multi tasking and how to retain a sense of humour through it all.
Through this all, Natalie rely's on the Christian beliefs that to those much is given, much is expected. She is a proud supporter of students and communities that have financial needs, whether it is providing university students with scholarships, grade school kids with bikes and opportunities to go to camp, Natalie firmly believes in giving back to the wider community and raises Kaila to do the same.
WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST ACCOMPLISHMENT?
To date this is my favourite story. This client, single mom with two girls from Cameroon, was looking for a condo in Mississauga about 3 years ago. We found a beautiful condo, older build, fit their family perfectly. Sophie was all excited to put in an offer, there were 3 or 4 of them at the time. Close to the time we had to have the offer signed, Sophie pretty much disappeared. She was suppose to meet me and she was nowhere to be found. With minutes before closing, she reappeared. A little flustered I probed her to find out what was wrong and was she having cold feet... we had a little heart to heart and THEN...she started to bawl, tears flooded her face...my first thought was she was a single mom and this is a very nerve wracking process when you are doing it alone and with two little ones dependent on you but I wasn't convinced that that was the situation...Sophie shared with me that a few years before this she was living in a shelter with her girls, she didn't have a car and was not educated...She since got her teaching degree and became a teacher and saved her money, she bought a car and now a condo....I started to cry. I was over the moon proud of her and honoured that she put her trust in me to help her make the biggest purchase of her life and to start a new chapter with her girls. That was the lowest financial sale I had done in years but the most impactful one to date.
