Her alarm, at 5 a.m. Why sleep? There’s a new day ahead!
Do what you love, the rest will come.
Every home has a tale to tell. And there’s nothing Sindy Jabuka loves more than to listen.
Sindy grew up helping her parents run their B&B on the coast of Croatia. When the family moved to Montreal when Sindy was 20, she began a career in the hotel industry. She opened a popular pastry shop when her three children were small. Then, in 2003, she got her real estate license.
Being of service is something Sindy has loved about every job she’s had, but real estate changed her life. “I was helping people in a completely new way,” she says. “I was invited into their homes and into their lives. People move for many reasons. They’re getting married, having a baby, their spouse has died, they’re separating, they’re starting a new job. I became more aware of the cycle of life and, with that, the cycle of every home.”
For buyers, Sindy helps provide perspective, set priorities and see potential. For sellers, it’s about showing a home in the best possible light while honouring years of memories. Both buyers and sellers appreciate Sindy’s can-do attitude.
Sindy is Trust Realty’s neighbourhood specialist for Rockwood Village, a well-established community in east Mississauga that’s only a few bus stops from Toronto and a quick hop to highways. She loves to walk along the trails to Sheridan Nurseries, shop at the “Polish Plaza” and Cordi Bakery, and listen to her neighbours’ stories. “So many of them are the original owners of their homes,” she says. “They enjoy talking about the neighbourhood and reminiscing about when their homes were built.” Sindy considers it part of her job to know everything that’s going on in the neighbourhood. “When someone asks me a question, I know the answer right away,” she says, “because I live here.”
