Thanks for visiting our website! My name is Ally, and I’m a Real Estate Sales Representative as well as part of the Administrative brains behind the business! I work as the Office Manager together with Carolyn to keep the Team organized with appointments, showings, offers, and all of the other components that keep us running smoothly. I’ve worked “behind the scenes” on over 400 deals since beginning my administrative career with the Team 2 years ago, which is more paperwork than some Agents see in a lifetime!
I want to share a little bit about myself so I’m not just the person on the other end of the phone! I’m married to my best friend and high school sweetheart, Jeff VanderHarst, whom I’ve been with for 13 years! Jeff co-owns his own business, a local company called Elements Contracting. We have a “fur baby” together, our fun loving golden retriever, River, who probably gets more love than any dog I’ve ever met. I am the only daughter to my loving parents, Janet and Jim Burns, who provided me with the support to be the strong, independent woman that I am today. Being an only child, I was happy to inherit my Husband’s siblings as if they were my own; Jimmy, Jason, and Shawna and their better halves Renee, Amanda, and Greg.
I graduated from Laurier University here in Brantford with a Honours Bachelor Degree in Organizational Leadership and Business Administration. Since then I’ve worked in various administrative roles within the customer service industry for over 6 years. I’ve had an eye for Real Estate since my parents sold our family home in 2009 but I never considered it as a career until Jeff & I were looking to purchase our second home. We happened to meet Kate Broddick at an open house and after working together we maintained a relationship which blossomed into a fantastic friendship and an opportunity to get my foot in the door with a career that really interested me!
I’m very excited to work with families in our community in their search to find somewhere to call “home”. With our Team’s “family first” approach, we ensure that we treat you and your loved ones just how we would our very own. This means putting you in a home that you can feel safe and proud of for years to come! If you’re looking for honesty and awesome customer service, please feel free to call with any questions, I’d love to hear from you!
