This Is Us... By Melissa Verspeeten

I’m going to use my very first blog post to introduce you to my family. My why. The reason I’ve chosen this career is because it affords me the flexibility to arrange my schedule around being there for them when they need me.

My little family started in Tillsonburg but is now so lucky to call the beautiful city of Stratford home. With it’s great schools, fabulous restaurants, world-class theatre and manicured parks and trails we are beyond blessed to be here.

Now for my MVP’s…

First up, my husband Colin. He’s my rock, my other half and the one who encouraged me to get into real estate in the first place and stood by me through all the good times and more importantly all the challenges. Colin is a probation officer and takes such pride in helping people try to get their lives back on track. He coaches our son’s hockey teams, helps with homework, reads bedtime stories, I really don’t know what I’d do without him. He’s serious when he needs to be, sometimes silly, makes us laugh and is our family’s foundation as far as I’m concerned. He’s a keeper!

Thing 1…

This boy changed my life, my sweet angel, Daxton Robert. He’s got a heart of pure gold, loves to help people, will spark up a conversation with absolutely anyone and always tries to make everyone feel included. This one loves his sports (hockey most of all, in true Canadian fashion), crafts, cooking and playing with his friends. He’s the best big brother, a peacekeeper and my snuggle buddy for family movie nights.

Thing 2…

My firecracker of a boy, Sawyer Brian. This child will test your patience by pushing every button you’ve got, then follow it up with a perfectly timed joke or dance or a look that will just melt you to the core. He’s bursting with personality and persistence. Also a hockey lover, like his big brother, and most recently into karate and ninja training :) This boy will move mountains <3

Our Fur Baby…

Lastly, our Schnoodle, Oliver. The boys wanted “a real dog” so we completed our family with this Schnauzer/Poodle cross 2 years ago and he’s completely stolen our hearts.

And that’s a wrap! This is my tribe, the people I spend my days and nights loving and supporting. Can’t wait for all of you to learn more of my deep dark secrets :p
