Maureen Sullivan

I was born at East General Hospital in the heart of East York and have lived, worked and raised my daughter and son there for the greater part of their lives.

As a child I grew up in Riverdale and East York and have lived in West Scarborough and North York in my adult years. My real estate career started out somewhat as a hobby. In the 90′s my husband and I purchased investment and recreational properties in the GTA and Ontario and found that with a little bit of renovation and time, real estate appreciated in value…who knew?

This “hobby” turned into a full time career when I realized that I had an eye for houses in locations that were on the verge of popularity and desirability. Since 2006 I’ve earned many awards including Executive Club and the 100% Club, a great honour in our industry.

I currently serve on:

The City of Toronto’s Property Standards Committee

The Ontario Real Estate Association’s Communications Committee

The Toronto Real Estate Board’s Government Relations Committee and, Arbitration and Mediation Committee

I’ve been a Meals on Wheels volunteer and have contributed to the Children’s Breakfast Program, the Children’s Miracle Network and Habitat For Humanity. I’ve also sponsored my son’s East York soccer and baseball teams. I’m a big fan of most sports and love to watch my son play hockey, baseball and football.

I enjoy reading biographies and motivational books, black and white photography, a variety of music (except country…sorry fans!) and comedy films. I take great delight in food and wine. I very much enjoy having friends and family over to share in my many attempts at trying to match the perfect wine with the perfect dish. I’m beginning to appreciate that the fun is in the trying…

I also have a passion for travel that has lead me to visit many places in Canada, the USA & the Caribbean.

Truth be told, I’m not a winter person who enjoys cold, snowy activities and therefore my travels have taken me mostly south during the winter and summer breaks. My favourite places are Aruba, Barbados and Turks & Caicos are my top three. For scuba diving and snorkelling, Cozumel and Turks are extraordinary.

I think the most important thing that I realize every time I come home however, is how lucky I am to live in such an amazing city. The cultural diversity that we have here is second-to-none. I love Toronto and am truly blessed to have a career that enables me to share my passion for this city with people who want to find their piece of paradise here in terrific T.O.!
