We are Elm and Oak Real Estate, three sisters, Elizabeth, Loretta, and Michelle, with a story to tell.
Coming from a family with immigrant parents we saw the struggles, sacrifices, and hard work that our parents put in to create the life that we had. We vividly remember a real estate agent telling our parents that they would not be able to afford their dream home in a prestigious neighbourhood in Mississauga. What we thought was devastating news, ended up having little effect because only three months later we were moving into that very home.
Our mother always taught us to never let our race, gender, or current circumstance hold us back in life. We watched as our mom worked two jobs so that she could build the life that she dreamed of for herself and her family. As little girls we saw a strong woman who would not let life give her a ‘no’ for an answer.
Our parents learned to use real estate to create wealth and are now enjoying the fruits of their labour in their retirement. We have been robustly blessed by this as well!
All grown up now, as mothers and wives ourselves we strive to leave an equally impactful legacy, not only to our children, but to all women. Through our experience, we’ve learned strategies and skills that we now proudly bring into our business for our clients’ benefit.
Each of us has their own story about what makes us passionate about real estate. We strive to support and guide women and families use real estate to create memories and good times, and to create wealth for generations to come.
Combined we are a powerhouse of knowledge, skill, and passion for seeing other women and families excel to their greatest potential.
Having worked in the corporate world as a credit manager for over 15 years, Elizabeth saw there was so much more she wanted to accomplish. Not just on her own, as a family. She joined forces with her sister to make an impact for women and other minorities. Using her experience from the finance world. she is able to help clients understand what to look for, what to avoid to get their mortgage application approved.
Loretta also brings financial experience from her mortgage background. Loretta has a keen eye and a love of numbers. Loretta has helped clients to understand their equity and help them reach their goals. Helping single women is close to Loretta's heart. She is committed to see single women buy their first home and grow generational wealth.
Michelle has been in the real estate industry over 15 years. Michelle's experience working as a real estate administrator, and a real estate and wills and estate law clerk gives Michelle an edge many realtors don't have. She shines as she negotiates on the behalf of her clients bringing them to their real estate goals. Michelle has a passion to see women have financial freedom and has pursued her financial coach license to do just that.
