Meet Sherry Rioux
As your Collingwood and Blue Mountain REALTOR®, my goal is to earn your confidence and represent you on the purchase or sale on your next home by getting to know a little more about me.
I was born in Fredericton, N.B. After graduating from the University of New Brunswick with a 4 yr. Bachelor of Education I moved to Toronto where I began my teaching career in 1981. Working exclusively for independent private schools, I progressed up the ranks and moved from teacher to administrator. The last 14 years of my teaching career were spent at Holy Trinity School (HTS), an exclusive independent school in Richmond Hill as Director of the Junior School and then the school’s first Director of Development. In my capacity as Development Director I was responsible for raising over $6 million dollars for the school’s capital campaign, all special events, alumni relations and marketing.
My husband Stephen and I purchased our first condo in Collingwood in 1992 at Lighthouse Point. For 12 years we were weekenders, fleeing the city every Friday night and dreading the return every Sunday evening! In August of 2004, we decided to make the leap and sell our home in Unionville and move permanently to Collingwood.
Upon hearing the announcement by the Headmaster at HTS, one of the parents approached me and asked if I would be interested in working for him at project he was starting in Collingwood of high end, luxury waterfront condos called Admirals Gate. Always up for a challenge, I jumped at the chance and a real estate career was born.
Organization, attention to detail, a love of people, sense of humour and hard work ethic are just a few words that describe me. When choosing a REALTOR®, I can help you buy or sell the perfect place to call home!
