MARY JO BRAID - A LONGSTANDING CAREER OF EXCELLENCE IN SALES AND MARKETING
As a born high achiever, I have been passionate about sales and marketing for over 33 years. As a professional sales and marketing executive I have demonstrated a sustained and enduring track record of being a “Top Sales Producer” in every position I have held. As a professional real estate agent, I take pride in upholding that same degree of excellence.
I love taking on new challenges and working with teams to achieve shared goals. My introduction to the world of real estate sales was in working for a large development in Edmonton, Alberta where I was charged with condo unit pre-sales. Making the move from being an industry sales representative to selling real estate was the best career decision I have ever made!
I am committed to life-long learning and to honing my craft. My strong commitment to personal and professional growth resulted in exemplary performance as a Project Manager responsible for the sales and marketing of over 700 units. Upon completion of the first project, I once again successfully led a similar-sized condo project in Grande Prairie, Alberta. After the close of these projects, I moved to North Vancouver where in January 2010, I obtained my Realtor's license through the Greater Vancouver Real Estate Board. In 2011, I was nominated for "Rookie of the Year" with the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver.
My professional real estate sales record is solid. While working for Sutton West Coast Realty - North Shore, my sales topped the charts in 2011 and 2012. Moreover, I held my position as one of their Top Ten Agents. I am a longstanding recipient of the "Diamond Award" from 2011 through 2016 for exemplary performance in sales.
I value family, community, and building strong relationships. In 2017, I moved back to Victoria, B.C. with my partner to be closer to our five children. I am a proud mother of two handsome sons and stepmother to three beautiful young ladies, ranging in ages from 25 – 28 years - each are now independent adults with bright futures on the horizon.
I believe in fostering a spirit of wellbeing through daily practices that strengthen the mind, body, and spirit. I am an avid runner and try to run every day. This affords me the opportunity to
really get to know and enjoy Victoria - a magnificent city that has so much to offer. In this way, I am able to share intimate knowledge of this great city with my clients.
I value professional integrity and my reputation is of utmost importance to me. My dedication to my clients and developers, is a priority. You can consistently count on my honesty, commitment, and follow each and every day.
Sincerely, Mary Jo Braid
