Meet Christine Smith your Collingwood REALTOR®
Buying and selling real estate depends not just upon the technical expertise and skills of a REALTOR®, but also trust and camaraderie. Christine Smith would like to share more about herself and what she can do for you.
As a full-time REALTOR® registered with the Southern Georgian Bay Association of REALTORS®, Christine offers a background in customer service and online marketing which she finds to be great tools in helping clients with buying and selling Real Estate throughout Collingwood, Thornbury and Meaford as well as other communities across Southern Georgian Bay.
Christine was born and raised in Southampton, England and left there at the age of nineteen to explore the world. This journey started in Toronto, Ontario where she planned to stay for one year before moving on. But she stayed and had a successful career with Via Rail Canada in Safety and Security.
After VIA Rail, Christine backpacked for a couple of years across countries such as Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, Vietnam and India, where she was fortunate enough to meet Mother Theresa, before moving back home to England to look after her parents.
Upon returning to Canada, Christine decided to leave the City of Toronto and was looking for somewhere with a lake (for her dog Tanglefoot). She looked at many areas in Ontario but could not find the right place, she wanted a four seasons community that also had nice shopping and restaurants, a small town with a city feel. A friend from Toronto suggested she look at the Town of Collingwood. She came up to the area bought a house that day and moved within thirty days. Christine considers this to be her wisest move ever and although moving here on her own and knowing no one -- Christine knew it would not be hard making new friends and having a great lifestyle here.
One of the most exciting experiences in her life was buying that first home, which she now keeps and maintains as her current property. Christine now looks forward to passing on her knowledge of the area and real estate onto others to help them achieve these same goals of home ownership.
