Hi, I’m Wendy Elzner a team leader for TheWayHomeTeam. I moved to Barrie in 1978 when it was a small city of only about 45,000 we are now at 150,000 and growing every day. Many people drive by Barrie on their way north, but never truly see what we have to offer. We sit on the shores of Kempenfelt Bay in Lake Simcoe which was formed by glacial meltwater and is southern Ontario's largest interior lake at 48 km long and 29 km wide. The Barrie waterfront is truly a hidden gem with beautiful beaches, parkland, board walks, playgrounds, walking paths and home to a multitude of festivals all year long. But enough about why I still live here!
After moving to Barrie 40 years ago, I spent 4 years in the City and then moved to Oro/Medonte from 1982-1987, then we built a home in 1987 in Springwater and was there until 2004. I have be back living in the City of Barrie since 2004.
I have 3 children, who are now grown and married, Ryan and his wife Julie and their 2 children Miles and Finn, Justin, Amber and her husband Scott and their sons Lincoln and Vincent and a daughter due Dec, 2018 , my partner Elmer also has 2 children Matt and his wife Stephanie and 2 year old Aubrey and Kim and her husband Frank and 2 year old Jakob, As you can see I am very blessed with a great extended family and lots of grandchildren close by, I also have my Mom who just turned 94 and moved to Barrie and is enjoying a wonderful life style at the Waterford Retirement Residence.
I became a Realtor® in 1997 so that I could help other families move to this wonderful area. I have built my business on a repeat and referral model by giving my clients personal service and by being available when they call, and now with being part of a team of 6, I feel that I can bring my service to my clients to the next level. When I am not working full time in Real Estate, I love spending time with our family, travelling and we recently purchased a 31’ trailer and go camping with the kids. We’ll maybe it’s more like clamping, were not exactly roughing it.
