What is Lifestyle Real Estate?

Buyers of today are very sophisticated. It’s much more than having a roof over your head, its about the education your children will receive, the access to parks & recreation, proximity to culture & community, as well as who your neighbours are and the curb appeal & quality of your neighbourhood. The priority list goes far beyond a 3 bed, 3 bath house. 

Enter The Village Guru:. I employ a proven buying system to really understand both what you want and how you want to live. I will help you filter your choices & give you options you might not have known about. All of my work is based on your needs and goals, because tailoring an experience around you is what the Village Guru is all about. Because it’s not just about a house, it’s about your lifestyle.
