Born in Toronto, Kirsten moved at a young age from the big city to a remote Scottish Highland Glen where her formative years were spent exploring this rural setting with her friends and neighbours. From this early age, relationships were important due to the remoteness of the location and the small school she attended.
After 2 years in South Africa, her family arrived in Victoria where she had the privileged experience of graduating from St. Michael’s University School.
She attended McGill University for two years where she studied English literature and political science and then returned to the West Coast where she transitioned from her part-time summer job to working full-time as a legal assistant for a successful local law firm.
Following that, two years as an assistant to Glynis made her realize that she had a keen interest in real estate. With an avid eye for statistical data, analyzing the market and communicating with friends and clients, this had become a passion.
Newly minted as a realtor she is now a vital member of the team working in close tandem with Glynis.
“I was raised on the principle that you should always work harder than those around you. Go the extra mile and do it with passion, integrity, positivity and empathy for others. Don’t be pigeon-holed by your job description. Anyone can do a good job and meet expectations, but people will remember you for the times you go above and beyond.”
