Interview by Distinctive Women Magazine.


I was interviewed by Ashley Robson from Distinctive Women Magazine and it was fabulous!

As an boutique real estate broker in Toronto's Yorkville area with Sotheby's International Realty Canada, Vivien is a proud member of Distinctive Women, a national publication and online community, which  showcases Canada's female professionals, leaders and entrepreneurs. She also has specialty training and education as a Pivotal-Master ASA (trademark) and helps Boomers and their Senior parents not only with the real estate transaction and but also offers full transitioning services for older adults.

While specializing in city condos and urban homes, her passion is helping boomers and empty-nesters prepare the family home for sale and determine what are the best choices for them when it is time to move. Vivien comes from experience having downsized from a larger suburban Toronto home years ago to a Yorkville condo to embrace a city lifestyle.

In this video, she discusses the three demographic streams that downsizing addresses: those in their 30's and 40's who have Boomer parents; Boomers who are 55 to 71 years; and Boomers who have Senior parents in their 80's and 90's. She discusses the various reasons why downsizing is beneficial and the choices that families have, whether buying a condo, renting, living multi-generationally with their family under one roof, downsizing to a smaller home, or in the case of Seniors needing care, to assisted living.

This transition should be a positive experience. Working with a network of exceptional specialists makes the process far smoother and comforting for the entire family involved.


Last year's Distinctive Women Magazine party.

I have personally enjoyed every aspect of the residential real estate lifecycle from renting, buying, selling, and investing and I am passionate about helping people find their new beginnings also.

As a niche specialist in the mid-Toronto condo market and helping Boomers downsize from their large home to a deluxe condominium in the city, I thrive on helping my clients.

I am honoured, thrilled and humbled by this exclusive inclusion. Special thanks to all of my clients and the sage advice of my peers for making this happen.
