Choosing a Pet Friendly REALTOR®

Helping your whole family be happy in their new home!Choosing a realtor is an important decision. And when you have pets this decision becomes even more important.

There are factors that a pet owner needs to take into account when looking to purchase a new home. Such factors range from the proximity to dog parks to whether the home has a fenced yard or the ability to fence a yard. Also of importance is the type of flooring in a home – is it pet friendly or will you need to spend a lot of money updating to meet your pets needs. And of course a big factor to consider is whether the neighbourhood is pet friendly?   


Choosing a Sales Representative that is pet friendly is especially important when house hunters are looking to purchase a condominium (either a townhome or apartment). These properties often restrict outright or have restrictions as to the type/size of pets that they allow on the premises. If you looking to purchase a condo and have a pet, please contact me and I will provide you with a list of the pet-friendly condominium complexes in your target neighbourhoods.


Selling a home where a pet resides presents its own challenges, which a pet-friendly REALTOR®, such as myself, can overcome. I know how to properly ready a home with pets for showings, which can add valuable dollars to your bottom line. I know that the selling process can be stressful for pets as well as owners. So I do my best to manage showings and minimize stress for all members of the family.


If you own a pet than choosing a Sales Representative who understands the special needs of pet owners is of paramount importance. I love pets and I know houses.  I have been selling Real Estate since 1997 and have sold hundreds of homes to hundreds of satisfied pet owners!  Let me help you find your family and your pets the perfect new home!
