Jayne Canning - Salesperson/REALTOR®
I grew up just on the outskirts of Kitchener, Ontario. I was raised to work for what I want and to always treat people the way I want to be treated. My Dad was a salesman for Hostess Frito Lay Food Company for over 40 years. I never heard him complain about a days work. I started out with the paper route, did my route for years and kept it even when I started working at Tim Horton's. One summer I took a job wrapping meat for a butcher in Elmira, Ontario. I always made the best of every job I had. I pumped gas for a summer, that was a great job! I had the best tan and met some of the greatest people. Through upselling car washes and oil changes I built a network of customers who always wanted to come and see me for their gas, oil check and car wash ticket! I had so many job offers through that job. I spent the next few summers trying them all!
It was Dad's friend Joe who inspired me into Real Estate. Joe was so much fun every time he was over! He was full of information and always had a good joke! I eventually took the courses, wrote the exams and joined Royal LePage.
I love the real estate business because it affords me the opportunity to meet and work with a wide variety of people. I never have the same day twice and I never see the same things twice. It is an honor helping people with their dreams whether it is at the beginning, middle or retirement leg of their journey. I enjoy the time spent with the people the most! I do enjoy seeing all the different home styles, decorations, learning about structure, roofing, building material, what to look for, well water testing, septic knowledge. There is an endless amount of things to learn about and to me, that is the best way to live! Everyone needs a place where they feel comfortable enough to celebrate their personal victories of the day, unload the good and bad events and recharge for the next day. I became a realtor to help people find that perfect place! The journey is different for everyone. My goal is to make all journey’s seamless!
