Nathalie Lalonde Goldhar
I have lived in Chaplin Estates for the last 25 years with my husband, our two children, and Ally, our Nova Scotia Duck Toller. Our children attended Toronto French School (TFS) where they completed the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program. They went on to pursue degrees at Western and at the University of Guelph (Business and International Development) and are now working for start-up companies in Central Toronto.
Originally from Montreal and fluent in French, I lived in London, England before returning to Canada. I have an MBA from the Richard Ivey School of Business and have previously worked in marketing and communications for J. Walter Thompson and Communiqué on various packaged goods accounts.
My family makes helping others a part of our daily lives. Over the years, we have been actively involved with Israel Cancer Research Fund (ICRF), an organization focused on finding treatments and cures for cancer for the benefit of patients throughout the world. We also support several local charities and believe that partaking in various fundraising initiatives allows us to make a real difference in our community.
I bring many skills to the real estate profession including an uncompromising attention to detail and a strong ability to negotiate on behalf of my clients. Importantly, I understand how to listen to my clients’ needs and provide the service and value they expect.
My family has lived in North Leaside for over 25 years and our three children are graduates of Northlea and Leaside High School. We love living near Bayview Avenue and value having so many parks and trails nearby for walking and biking.
In our community, I am a member of the Board of Management which operates North Toronto Memorial Arena, a sports facility which is an important part of my family’s sense of neighbourhood. I have held executive positions including President and Membership at CFUW Leaside-East York (Canadian Federation of University Women) where I also support and help to coordinate an annual holiday fundraiser for our local women’s shelter and operate the club Facebook page.
A graduate of the U of I at Champaign, Illinois, I worked in Texas before meeting my husband and relocating to Toronto, which wasn’t too much of an adjustment as I grew up in Chicago, another great city on a Great Lake. I am very proudly a new Canadian Citizen.
Professionally I worked in Construction Management before entering Real Estate, which gave me a strong background in materials, costs and building methods and experience with contractors, estimating and project schedules.
During the Covid-19 lockdown, I completed courses to attain the Real Estate Broker designation, signed on to many real estate industry-led webinars and learned (over Zoom) a new exercise form called Animal Flow.
