Stephanie Maye CCIM, FEA
Co-Founder & Broker of Record
Stephanie was born and raised on a Dairy/Chicken farm in Cookstown and sat with interest learning the concept of payback period at the kitchen table when her folks were talking about what crops and livestock to invest in. When most girls at 17 were reading Seventeen magazine, Stephanie subscribed to her own monthly stream of Forbes magazine! Investing in rental property began at 20 and she and her husband bought their first industrial property at 25, so after that it was pretty clear that God planted within her an innate love of big business and high finance which has since led to serving the business community with their real estate needs! Stephanie and her husband, with their 2 children call Barrie their launching pad where they also enjoy a large family circle that has been in the Simcoe County community for over 7 generations.
Stephanie now specializes in Investment Analysis and Asset management in how to best position your investment holding portfolio through real estate cycles and maximize profits.
