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) begun her Real Estate Sales career in the eighties, I never realized that it would end up being my career as well. After graduating from highschool 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.
Therefore, 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 wanted more in life and to top it all off 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 practicing real estate sales (February 2004). In 2007 I was divorced my then husband; at that point I had hit an all time low and raising 2 children on my own.
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 new husband, the love of my life, at about that time I started boxing. I became an amateur boxer for ONTARIO and at my first fight (which I WON at the age of 40(2011) (my counter part was 15 years younger with 10 years experience). It was during this fight that my girls and family, met my future husband.
In 2013 my girls, husband and I moved to my beautiful home in Caledon , and in 2014 the love of my life and got married. All the while practicing and doing well in Real Estate. 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!
I have always been in the 100% Club but 2019 was an awesome year and achieved PLATINUM!!!
