Getting to Know Giovanna!

Why did you get into Real Estate?
I really enjoy working with people and have worked with guests, customers, and clients all my adult life. When the time was right for a career change, my then REALTOR® talked to me about becoming a REALTOR®, it’s pro’s and con’s, the number of hours and dedication required, and yet a somewhat flexible work schedule. My background in sales was certainly an asset so I decided to take the opportunity and I have loved being a REALTOR® ever since.

Why do you love being a REALTOR®?
It is very rewarding to have the privilege to find that perfect property for first-time buyers, watching their family grow, and find a more suitable home to accommodate their changing needs. Helping buyers at any stage of their lives to find the right property for them fills me with pride and joy. Of course, the same goes for sellers. I enjoy meeting new customers and clients and nothing makes me happier than satisfied buyers and sellers and getting referrals from previous clients and customers. I love helping people make life-changing decisions.

Why do you like living in Pictou County? Why are you proud to call it home?
Pictou County became my home many years ago. I love the community spirit, friendliness, and helpfulness of Pictou County residents. The beautiful beaches of Pictou County are my happy place.
