Hi, my name is Charlene De Silva and I’m a Realtor in the GTA specializing in Residential, Condominium and Green Living. After spending nearly a decade exposed to the industry with a father who designs and builds custom homes in Mississauga and Oakville, I decided to enter the exciting world of Real Estate myself. From foundation to shingles and everything in between, I’ve gained a great understanding and appreciation for what it takes to build a home. However, even a house built with the finest finishings, is just a house until the right family comes along to make it a home. This is where I decided that I could make a difference.
As a NAR’s Green designated Realtor, I am knowledgable in helping those clients who would like to buy, sell and convert their existing homes into energy efficient sustainable properties. I am also committed to conducting my business as paperless as possible. I am a member of local Green organizations in Mississauga & Oakville and am always looking for further opportunities to take part in city initiatives and government boards focused on a sustainable future.
In addition to my passion for Real Estate, I bring 8+ years experience in various forms of Marketing. I began my journey in Public Relations with Subaru Canada where I planned Auto Shows and maintained relationships with automotive journalists across Canada. Later, I found myself in a Project Management role for a Media Consultancy company running Sales Training and Revenue Generating programs with Radio and TV stations across Canada. And finally, before deciding to pursue my true passion, I let my creative side fly while in a Studio Manager role at Labatt Breweries of Canada. All this great experience has given me confidence in being able to transfer these skills to the marketing of my clients homes. Being a Realtor requires me to wear many different hats; a salesperson, a strategic thinker, a relationship builder and what I would argue most important and the hat I’ve worn the longest, a Marketer.
Whether it’s your first home or your fifth – the feeling of buying a new home and selling a house filled with so many memories, can be overwhelming and often scary. I’m dedicated to be there for my clients every step of the way, making the process as simple and stress free as possible. Not a day goes by that I am not excited and honored to be part of such a memorable and momentous occasion in my clients life… I hope that you will give me the chance to share in these memories with you as well.
