Owner Spotlight: Janice Macaulay
I’m Janice Macaulay, a realtor in Brantford, Ontario. I look forward to sharing my story. I hope that you will enjoy getting to know me better.
Right from a young age, I was an entrepreneur at heart. As an adult, I moved to Ontario from Saskatchewan in 1986, began my career with Blue Bird Bus Sales, Canada, and stayed with the company until they moved back to the U.S in 2001.
Having worked with the same sales firm for fifteen years, I was initially concerned I would be laid off. That’s when my family suggested real estate, and the rest, as they say, is history.
I got my license in 2001, became a registered realtor in the spring of 2002, and have only seen my business go from strength to strength. For about ten years, I have also been a certified fitness instructor, personal trainer and was privileged to be hired by Pat Hickey to train the Bantam 99er’s.
In the nearly twenty years I have been selling houses, things have changed considerably. I used to have a printed catalog with my listings. Now, it’s so much easier with access to MLS (multiple listing service) and other technology advancements.
The part of my business that I most enjoy is the chances I get to meet new people. I’ve lost count of the number of clients who, after successful real estate transactions, are now my life-long friends. This is possible thanks to my philosophy of being honest even when it’s not what my customers want to hear. Similarly, ensuring they do what’s suitable for themselves and their families has helped me come a long way as a professional.
As an individual, I believe what sets me apart from the others is my belief in hard work and the fact I make selling or buying homes or property an experience that is smooth, fun, and exciting.
I attribute my success to encouragement from friends and family, along with gratitude for the clients who recommend my services.
Every time someone finds their dream home, or I sell their home so they can move to their next home, and they see that sold sign, I do feel a sense of accomplishment, and the experience has given me immense satisfaction over the years.
When I am not at work, I enjoy being outdoors and staying fit. Fortunately, I have two dogs that need a lot of exercise to keep me on my toes and active. I also like cooking and baking.
I have enjoyed sharing my story about the things that matter to me and how they influence my business.
