My name is Lucais Shepherd. I am the Broker of Record of LUCAIS CORPORATION BROKERAGE.
I was born into a family already in the real estate business. Going back three generations now our family has been providing honest and professional real estate and brokerage expertise in Ontario.
Starting with my grandparents, including my father's mother and my mother's father both had real estate licenses in Ontario. More than 70 years later our family are still busy with careers in real estate brokerage and real estate law closing thousands of real estate transactions for families in Ontario. I worked with my father as a house flipper since I was a teenager. My dad flipped dozens of homes everywhere...everywhere!
And counting....I have an two uncles, two aunts and two cousins running a Real Estate Brokerage and Real Estate Law offices in Ontario. You could say we thrive on the real estate business! Combined we have well over a century of real estate experience in Ontario alone. We often share experiences on our weekly closing deals! In addition to real estate I finished Civil Engineering over 20 years ago and worked in construction, design, procurement and project management with the Federal Goverment (Pulic Works Canada and Parks Canada) and large municipal governments in Ontario's GTA, managing civil infrastructure, bridge, roads, and various civil engineering and construction surveying in site planning projects. I worked in the private sector with civil engineering consulting firms in Ontario and with an International NGO. I worked as an expatriate in a number of countries internationally from the mid-1990s for nearly a decade. After that I finished additional university studies in Faculty of Education and pedagogical studies in Ontario to become an Ontario Certified Teacher (OCT).
Currently, I own my own real estate Brokerage that specializes in residential sales of homes in the entire Great Toronto Area (GTA) and Eastern Ontario. I also specialize in sales of waterfront and recreational properties. I have sold numerous homes and condominiums in downtown Toronto, York Region, Mississauga, Barrie and Durham region. I have sold waterfront properties and recreational homes on the shores of Lake Simcoe in Keswick, Barrie, Innisfil and Orillia. I have sold mulitple Muskoka waterfront properties near Port Carling, Bala, Rosseau and MacTier. I have extensive knowledge of Eastern Ontario cities and towns, lakes, waterways and real estate angles. Our Shepherd family roots go back two generations in Toronto. My great aunt Pearl Shepherd was one of the earliest women to graduate in Psychology at the University of Toronto in the 1900s. She became a social worker downtown Toronto. Living in Yorkville, she used to walk across the street from her home to the Windsor Arms Hotel for Canada Dry ginger ale. She was the first person to move into the historic Yorkville building that's still existing. I remember visiting her in Yorkville many times as a kid. She got my dad a job at the ROM.
Today, I also make Toronto and York Region my home. I enjoy it's variety of amenities, shopping, entertainment and of course surrounding lakes for recreation. I enjoy hiking, skiing, biking, and boating locally and meeting the great variety of diverse people iliving in Ontario. My passion is beautiful homes, architecture, design and helping people and families make that move to where they want to live in life!
I look forward to helping you!
