Getting to know your Realtor
Whether you are buying or selling a home, it's one of the biggest investments of your life. Choosing a Realtor that is right for you has never been more important.
Heres a little about me, Colleen:
Hi, my names Colleen Caruso. I was born and raised in North Bay, Ontario so I have immense knowledge of the city and surrounding areas. I have been in the business for over 10 years but actively trading since May of 2014. I can honestly say that I have found my dream job. For as long as I could remember I had wanted to be a teacher. I remember standing up at my grade six graduation and telling the auditorium that I was going to be a teacher one day. Well, things changed when I was hired as a part-time receptionist at a busy real estate office in North Bay. Working part time while finishing my Bachelor of Arts (4 years honours) was when I began questioning my future. Real Estate seemed so interesting to me but it was hard to imagine myself as anything other than an elementary school teacher. So, pushing though, I went on to get my Bachelor of Education degree. When I finished school and it was time for me to go out in the real world, I was honest with myself and decided to persue my education to become a Real Estate Sales Representative. Well here I am! Over 7 years into the business and I wouldn't change it for anything. Real Estate is my passion, it is my calling.
"I think its so important to get to know your Realtor on a personal as well as a professional level. The best part about finding a Realtor for life, is also finding a friend for life as well."
I have two children. Stella who is a sassyy little 3 year old, and a beautiful baby boy, Giovanni (We call him Gio for short) who is just over 1 year old. It's safe to say life is nothing less than chaotic but I wouldn't change it for the world. I am still working full-time in my career all while raising two tiny humans.
My passion is Real Estate. Not just selling it, but buying and selling it myself. In 2017 I bought a foreclosure home and completely renovated it top to bottom. In the summer of 2019 I sold it and built a brand new home in a gorgeous subdivision. I've been here just over a year and am already wondering what my next move will be. Someday I hope to start flipping properties and also dipping into the rental market!
