The People Behind Bridgeway
Owner and Property Manager
In my life before full-time property management, I was a full-time elementary school teacher, managing investment properties on the side with my husband, Howard Buckley. For close to 15 years, I managed and inspired the creative minds of four to nine-year-olds, as well as co-managed and proudly represented several residential rental properties from one end of Toronto to the other.
With the support of my family, friends and coworkers, I made the jump into full-time property management, allowing me to keenly focus all my energies into Bridgeway PM. Over the past decade, I have honed the essential skill of multi-task management; one of the many skills I bring to the table as a property manager. From keeping on top of the endless array of responsibilities as a school teacher to managing our Toronto rental property investments, all the while being a wife and a Mom. I have proven myself capable of successfully handling an assortment of tasks that come my way, both expected and unexpected.
I take great pride in my role as a property owner and manager, and that is evident in the positive relationships I have established with tenants, the trusting partnerships I have made with property owners and tradespeople, and the great deal of TLC I put into managing our properties. I am now excited to offer my experience and services to property investors within the GTA who aspire to a high level of management related to all aspects of taking care of their property.
Born and raised in Toronto, I know this city like the back of my hand and love all it has to offer. After graduating from the University of Western Ontario with a degree in mechanical engineering, I purchased my first investment property, a student rooming house in Guelph, Ontario. This was the beginning of my journey into the world of real estate investment and property management.
Since then, I joined forces with my business partner, life companion and wife, Shirley Steele. Together we have successfully purchased, sold, owned, and operated various residential investment properties, in addition to undertaking many real estate projects, from major renovations to a complete condo conversion project.
I later went on to complete my Masters degree in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Toronto, but my passion for Toronto real estate investment and management has remained strong. Coming from a scientific and mathematical background makes me perfectly suited to the roles at Bridgeway PM of accounting manager and book keeper extraordinaire.
