Meet Christine Smith your Collingwood REALTOR®

Buying and selling real estate depends not just upon the technical expertise and skills of a REALTOR®, but also trust and camaraderie. Christine Smith would like to share more about herself and what she can do for you.
I was born in Southampton England and left there when I was 19 years old to explore the world. I went to Toronto Ontario for one year and stayed for nearly twenty. After a career with Via Rail in the Safety and Security department I decided to carry on with my travels that had been put on hold.

I then went to the Greek Island of Ios, where I worked on a beach for 2 seasons and then back packed throughout Europe. I then traveled to Australia, where I thought I would settle, however, after arriving in Melbourne and traveling around the country I realized, Canada was the best place in the world to live.

From Australia, I back packed through, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, Vietnam and India where I was fortunate enough to meet Mother Theresa. I worked for a time in the homes established by Mother Theresa to look after the sick.

After traveling for two and half years I went home to England to look after my parents for seven years. Upon returning to Canada, I decided to leave Toronto and move to Collingwood. I chose the Collingwood area because of the Bay and the ski hills and the abundance of nice restaurants, shops and culture which I could not find in any other small town across Ontario. I know this has been my wisest move ever and although moving here on my own and knowing no one I have made many good friends and have had a great life here.

I wanted to be a REALTOR® for many years but did not have the opportunity while advancing my career with VIA. Once settled here, I got my REALTORS® and Brokers License and have been selling real estate in Collingwood since 2005. I have to say it is, “the best job ever”, I love meeting new people and feel that this career is the most rewarding career I have chosen.

Living and working in the Southern Georgian Triangle is for me the best place in the world to be, I love the area and am delighted when I meet new people who want to move here. It is so much fun showing people the area and finding the perfect home for them, whether it is a full time residence or a recreational weekend home in Collingwood or Thornbury. I look forward to meeting and working with you in the future, thank you for taking the time to read my bio and visit my web page.
