About Derek Ladouceur
A LITTLE ABOUT ME
I am born and raised in the east end of this beautiful city. For the past 12 years, my family and I have called The Upper Beaches our home.
I have been selling real estate here in the city for the past 8 years and honestly, I cannot imagine doing anything else. I truly love what I do.
Helping people navigate their way through the buying and selling process of their dream homes truly is a blessing I do not take lightly.
I realized though that a lot of people do not know a lot about me, so let me share a few details about myself.
I am happily married to an amazing woman (Fiona) have a beautiful daughter named Addison and a very energetic Irish Setter that we named Irish (of course)
I went to school for Child and Youth Worker many years ago and spent the first part of my career working in youth and family shelters where I helped women with children coming out of abusive situations.
I also worked for the Toronto District School Board with youth at risk and spent a few years working in a home for children with autism. That part of my life was both incredibly rewarding and emotionally taxing.
For a long period of time, I was the Canadian amateur Muay Thai Champion. I held that title for a few years until I turned pro. I fought for both the North American Title and the World Kickboxing title as well.
Why do I tell you all this? Well…
1. it gives you some clarity as to who I am and where I come from.
2. It lets you know that I fight. I do not give up. I know adversity, and I deal with it. I do not let things get in the way of the task at hand. If I do? Well, there are consequences. When I was fighting if I let things get in the way, I could either lose the fight or worse get knocked out. When I was working with families or youth at risk my attention needed to be on them to better serve them and make sure their needs were met and came first.
I have taken those life lessons and brought it with me to the world of real estate. Working with my team I can promise you that you will not have a better ally. I have taken my life lessons and work experience and molded it into my business. My previous experiences have shaped the way I help people with their real estate needs. Past clients will say it has been a great experience.
I hope you are interested in finding out for yourself. If you are thinking of buying or selling and you want to ensure you have the right person for the job, please give me a call and let’s have a chat. I guarantee it will be the right move!
