After many years living on the west coast, Genelle recently moved back to her hometown in the prairies because something major was missing from her life: the supportive and tight-knit community of people that Edmonton is known for. With a background in hospitality and customer service, combined with a 200RYT yoga certification, taking care of people has always proven to be her top priority… it’s a no-brainer she immediately felt right at home with the service-oriented group at Schmidt!
Making the switch to residential real estate was a natural progression for Genelle as she recalls her days as a child cycling around her west end neighbourhood, ringing the doors of her favourite houses, and asking for a peek inside. Genelle is proud to be a part of the growing downtown community, where she resides with her partner James and their golden retriever Karl.
When she’s not working, walking in the river valley with her family, or trying new restaurants downtown, Genelle expresses her creativity and passion for sustainable design through her upcycled clothing company called cu+ up cotton. Genelle looks forward to sharing her love of architecture, design and the city of Edmonton!
GENELLE’S FAVORITE THINGS…
James and my 4-day-turned-10-day Los Angeles trip to see a band that involved driving a rental car through the Mojave Desert, 1 A.M. fine dining in Las Vegas, and house-hunting Palm Springs’ finest mid-century modern masterpieces.
Ben & Jerry’s Non-Dairy Netflix & Chill’d. However, there are days when pain is gain and any buttery delight from La Boule Bakery is worth it (must try: kouign amann)
An americano misto with oat milk
I love my Toyota 4Runner but when I win the lottery she’s getting traded for a Ferrari GTC4Lusso
David Bowie – possibly the coolest birthday gift a dad could give his teenage daughter. More recent 2nd favourites: Alt-J, Elton John, Kanye West & Jay-Z, Tool
Stella McCartney. I love her style and that her brand is cruelty-free.
FAVORITE ACTIVITY OUTSIDE OF WORK:
Activity outside of work: eating at new restaurants with James, yoga, painting & screenprinting, road trips & travelling.
