Heather Whyte, Co-founder & BROKER
My name is Heather Whyte. I was born and raised in the East Galt area Cambridge. I graduated from the University of Western Ontario with an honours specialization in Spanish and Linguistics. After spending a year abroad studying in Spain, my plan was to be a translator. Having no idea what that would truly entail, I graduated and started working to save for grad school, and never went back.
I’ve worked in a variety of industries and for companies like BlackBerry and the University of Waterloo, only to find that although I had good jobs with great companies, something wasn’t right. I was striving for more.
Looking back on it now, I realize I’ve always loved real estate and design, and being a business owner is really where I thrive. I used to attend home tours with my mother and her friends when I was young and I loved it! I was the only kid that went on those tours that wasn’t dragged there by a parent who couldn’t find a babysitter. After building a home, starting to invest in rental properties and stalking realtor.ca 24/7, it finally occurred to me that real estate may be the path for me. I got my license and I haven’t looked back.
Being an investor myself, I love helping investors grow their portfolio. I also love educating first time home buyers and helping them get into the market. It’s always satisfying to help clients get into their ‘forever’ home as well. Helping clients achieve their goals, whatever they may be, while providing superior service is what I aim for with each and every transaction.
