“Be the reason someone smiles. Be the reason someone feels loved and believes in the goodness in people.” – Roy T. Bennett
“The best investment on earth is Real Estate.”
I have called Edmonton Home since 2007; a place that I am so proud to live in, grow with, and invest in, with my family. One of the first things that I had to learn upon arriving in Edmonton, was how to stay warm and safe in colder weather. Edmonton; despite being a big city, is still small in comparison to where I come from. I was born and raised in Punjab and New Delhi, India; a City of over 20 million people. I have travelled to almost every part of India and have learned a lot about different cultures through my vast travels.
Growing up in India, I developed my passion for cooking with my family and friends. I inherited my cooking skills from my Mom, as I used to help her extensively in the kitchen. Upon completing my higher education in the culinary field; I officially started my cooking career with Singapore Airlines.
Later I moved to work on Carnival Cruise Lines in Miami, USA, where I had the pleasure to work with about 150 Nationalities and we cooked for about 3000 to 5000 Cruisers each day. While working aboard Carnival Cruise Lines I also enjoyed visiting 45 Mexican and American Ports and by osmosis learning more about their foods and culture at each stop.
After working for almost 4 years on the Cruise Lines, I decided to move to Canada in 2007 to work for a few restaurant chains. My vast experience on the Cruise Ship assisted me in opening large-scale restaurant projects in Edmonton, such as “The Rec Room” as their Executive chef. Simultaneously, I was also doing chef consultancy for new restaurants. I am so proud to say that I attained my Red Seal and Certified Chef De Cuisine Certification in Edmonton. My crowning culinary achievement is when I was hired as the Executive Chef for Rogers Place Arena; home of the Edmonton Oilers Hockey Team. I spent 3 very happy years at the culinary helm of Rogers Place, all while slowly building my Real Estate portfolio.
I love sharing my knowledge and life experience; which is why I have mentored a few culinary leaders to succeed in the Hospitality Industry. Lately, I have also successfully assisted new Real Estate Investors in building their Real Estate Portfolio.
Purchasing Real Estate is one of the most crucial decisions that you can make in life. My thirst for knowledge and learning only continues to grow. I am living proof of what a little bit of time, knowledge and focus can achieve. I look forward to assisting you and your family build a more secure future.
When I am not following my Real Estate passions, I am working out and listening to my favourite music playlist while doing small projects in my garage.
I love camping, it is my stress buster and I love walking in the cold water lakes.

My husband and I really loved to work with Liv Real Estate®, specially with Beverley Hasinoff. She was so candid, looking out for what we wanted, diligent and so helpful in helping us understand all the process as first homeowners.
