RE/MAX real estate sales representative Catherine Gordon (pictured, left) is well known in the West Queen West area. Having nurtured a prominent practice in Toronto’s west end since 1989, she smiles confidently from a billboard at the corner of Dundas Street West and Dovercourt Street. Her team is named Three Strong Women, “because that’s what we are,” says Gordon. Working closely with a designer and an expert stager, Gordon is well equipped for any real estate adventure.
As an arts enthusiast (and former professional jazz singer!), Catherine is enthusiastic about Artscape and its role in the vibrant West Queen West area. Those of you who attended 100 Years of Creativity at Artscape Youngplace in September will remember her as the event’s community sponsor. “I had a wonderful time at that event—and those puppies!” said Gordon. “I love being out in the community with people and kids, but the adorable bulldogs in the Artscape Youngplace photo booth stole the show.” Her generous contribution is also making it possible to launch a new initiative, the Artscape Youngplace Community Fund. This fund will be used to support community events and programs Artscape Youngplace, and we will be announcing how to apply later this fall. We are grateful to Catherine for her eagerness to support the local community, and helping more people realize their ideas for building community at Artscape Youngplace.
“What I love the most about this neighbourhood is its diversity,” Gordon told us at a recent interview. “I mean, West Queen West is so incredible and vibrant. It’s got everything: restaurants, galleries, schools, services, a community cultural hub…for people who want to live in the city, it’s a fantastic neighbourhood that offers practically everything you’d want.”
For Catherine, the most important part of her practice is trust. “Making sure I follow through on my promises is essential to my business.” We’re glad that Catherine decided to make this commitment to benefit the Artscape community.
