Angela Markusic, mother of two and award-winning realtor.
Q. When you first started your career, how did you know you were ready and what made you start?
I fell into my real estate career by chance. I already had my real estate license but was not working in real estate. My children were small at the time, and I saw an ad for a hostess at a building site. I applied and was hired immediately. From there, I went from site administrator of the entire project to licensed assistant to a full-time sales representative in both resale and pre-construction.
Q. Who or what has been your greatest influence?
My greatest influence was my mother. While I was working on getting my economics degree at McMaster University, my mother came up with a “brilliant idea.” She suggested that I get my real estate license. So, during the summers after my 2nd and 3rd year of university, I took the courses to obtain my real estate license.
My mother was a successful entrepreneur who ran her own business well into her 80s. And, while my early business life was always more traditional as I initially began working for the federal government. Her modelling has helped me to become the successful businesswoman that I am today.
Q. What is your favourite thing about what you do and why?
My favourite thing in my career is helping people find their perfect property and at the same time cultivating relationships and friendships.
