Ann is a real estate professional proudly serving the Ridge Meadows community. She and her family moved from Vancouver just over 7 years ago and prior to that, they were living in the Dominican Republic where her 3 children were born. It was not the first time Ann lived in the Caribbean as she had spent her childhood in Martinique before moving to Vancouver in her teen years with her parents.
Prior to entering the world of real estate professionally, Ann has had an extensive and diversified professional experience in sales, marketing, public relations and customer service in the tourism/travel/hospitality and telecommunications industries, both locally and internationally. Throughout Ann’s career, she has always believed in the importance of client satisfaction through stellar service and this has been a true motivator as a real estate professional as well. Even from her student years at the Hotel management School in Lausanne, Switzerland where she obtained her degree, she knew that was going to do just that - thrive to surpass expectations.
Ann has travelled numerous times, both personally and professionally, to Europe, S. and N. America, the Caribbean, N. and S. Africa. Ann is trilingual (English, French and Spanish; with good knowledge of Italian and some in German).Before having a family, her language skills came in handy when she worked as an international tour guide living abroad most of the year during the period of 3 years; this particular experience was very thrilling as Ann could be one day at the end of a tour with clients visiting the Uffizi Gallery in Florence and then less than 24 hours later arrive in Windhoek, Namibia, to start a safari tour with a new group of clients!
Through Ann’s work, at Macdonald Realty, she is an active participant in charity events; for instance, the yearly Golf Tournament to raise funds for the BC Cancer foundation and office fundraisings for the Arthritis Research Canada. Ann is also involved in the yearly participation to providing complimentary shuttle services at the Ridge Meadows Home Show and office fundraisings for the Make A Wish Foundation of BC. Currently, Ann is a parent volunteer for her daughter and son's volleyball teams and during the period of 5 years, was parent volunteer for the Westcoast Soccer when her kids were playing in the soccer league.
Ann is fortunate to have found her true vocation in real estate and looks forward to continue having the privilege to serve the local community.
