A little bit about myself. I was born in 1971 in Toronto and my heritage is both Greek and Italian.
My mother (Bianca Furfaro-Ghikas} became a Real Estate sales representative in the eighties, I never realized that would end up being my career as well.
After graduating from high school, I worked at the airport and really had no direction in life. At 23 I had my first child and I knew I needed to do something with my life in order to take care of her. So at 25 I joined the Canadian Armed Forces and became a tank driver. I stayed in Army for the better part of 6 years. At this point, I knew I want more in life plus I was pregnant again. So while I was on maternity leave I started and finished my real estate courses. By the time my daughter turned 1 years old, I was an active and successful real estate sales representative (February 2004).
In 2007 I was divorcing my husband and I hit an all-time low: raising 2 children on my own it was a difficult task, therefore, I knew that I would have to really do well in Real Estate in order to survive.
AND I DID!
My clients became friends and family and because of them I did and do well.
At 39 years old, 2010 I met my new husband, the love of my life, and had started boxing. I became an amateur boxer for ONTARIO and at my first fight (which I WON at the age of 40 (2011) (my counterpart was 15 years younger with 10 year's experience), the day of that fight my girls and family, met my future husband.
In 2013 we moved to my beautiful home in Caledon and in 2014 the love of my life and I got married. All of this while doing well in Real Estate Sales.
Real Estate and my Life have been a Roller Coaster. I Love my life and my career, I would not change a thing. It has made me the person I am today and I like that person!
My life has helped to understand people and that is what makes me the Realtor I am today!
