Michael Roberts

I consider myself very sociable, extremely motivated, and a fun-loving individual. Meeting new people and helping them achieve their goals is my biggest reward within Real Estate. I don’t consider the people I work with to be just “clients”; I strive to create a level of friendship, and mutual respect, from everyone I work with. In the modern world, having both a strong online presence and marketing plan is one of the most important parts of selling and buying a home. My Business Communications & Marketing Degree from Brock University has equipped me with the knowledge and innovation to properly market and promote listings to the correct audience and locations. It has also played a large role in helping me build, maintain, and manage relationships with individuals both in person and online. I am always available for my clients and consistently keep an open line for communication. I pride myself on delivering a world class service experience for my clients - putting their needs above anything else. I consider myself a specialist when dealing with high-pressure situations, negotiations, and milestone events. I have always had an entrepreneurial outlook on life focused on the customer experience. My work ethic, grit, and passion shines through with every interaction I have. In my spare time you can catch me spending time with my family & friends, training for marathons/ triathlons, and researching - staying sharp on all things real estate!

Buying a house? Leave it to Stever!

Buying a house is no longer as simple as it once was!   With the super-heated markets that we have seen for the last few years, there is an added skill in making sure you come out on top in multiple offers.  A salesperson can’t be in two places at once and this why a team advantage works best for you.  We review new listings several times throughout the day so that you will be the first to know and to offer on any properties of interest. We have a unique approach to under listed homes and multiple offer scenarios. We will guide you through them to make sure you have the strongest offer without over-paying.   We even pay for the home inspector of your choosing!   We are looking forward to sitting at the table with you and winning your new home.

For the past 12 years, I've worked as a medic for the Canadian Military, and more recently, I've begun to work as a Firefighter in the GTA. This has given me endless experience working in high stress situations, and helped me to develop a very strong attention to detail. These are very important qualities in today's real estate market where the optimal strategies for buying and selling have the potential to change on a weekly basis. The real estate industry is dynamic and constantly evolving, and just like with my time in emergency services, I constantly strive to stay on top of the current best practices and need to know information. I pride myself on my strong listening ability, and my natural talent to discover client's wants and needs. I'm a naturally curious guy, and I genuinely enjoy meeting and getting to know new people as they reach life's big milestones!

Being raised in the Durham Region, and spending my professional career working it, I have a tremendous knowledge of the area. Attending university, I specialized in entrepreneurship and finance, which has helped me generate a competitive edge when it comes to value and investment strategies. Throughout my career I have always been involved with sales surrounding people’s homes! At just sixteen years old I started, ran, and sold a property maintenance company. From there I sold swimming pools to homeowners in the region for almost eight years, which transitioned into residential HVAC sales. My most recent role, as a Branch Manager of a publicly traded company in the construction business, has allowed me to truly understand and deepen my construction knowledge being involved in major projects inside our community. It was also this recent role that reminded me of the joy I get out of meeting new people whilst being a professional resource! I continue to reside in the Durham Region with my wife and two children. I enjoy pursuing my own health and fitness through running, soccer, and going to the gym any opportunity I get. I also enjoy outdoor activities with my family and watching my children play soccer!

Shannon Darroch

I was born in raised in Scotland, but I moved to Ontario shortly before starting my first year of high school. Starting all over again in a foreign country, I took a major interest in learning about the Canadian people, their interpersonal and intrapersonal relationships, as well as the different cultures, traditions and religions that form Canada as a multicultural society. This interest led me to Durham College where I graduated from the Marketing and Advertising Communications program in 2016. To further my studies, I attended the University of Ottawa and graduated in 2021 with a BA in Communication. I specialize in media studies, where I design graphics or advertisements using Photoshop, Illustrator and Premiere. A combination of my nine years of retail experience and post-secondary education provided me with the opportunity to learn about people, their values, and the necessary skills to build long-term, meaningful relationships where client needs are always the primary priority.
