Planting roots in Niagara

By Kerry Ould on Nov 30, 2020 5:00:55 PM

Recent events have created an opportunity for many people to re-examine where they choose to call home.  With the increase in our ability to work remotely, no longer are we tied to the big cities - so suddenly the world is our oyster.  Combine this with a desire to slow down and rethink what's truly important to us, and you have the perfect motivation to pack up the kids and find your utopia.  

For me, this also included packing up a horse and a couple of cats and moving to Niagara to enjoy the country life. I couldn't be happier I did it. 

I recently shared my story with my marketing colleagues from Duliban Insurance Brokers who also proudly call Niagara home.  A special thank you to the team at Duliban for capturing my story and allowing us to share it with you here.

Planting roots in Niagara

The Niagara Region’s bountiful agriculture is not the only thing rooting in this developing region. Newcomers to Niagara are quickly planting roots in this community. Whether you are in pursuit of waterfront property in charming Niagara-on-the-Lake or desire close access to the Bruce Trail along the Niagara Escarpment in Beamsville, Niagara has it all. Twelve municipalities complete Niagara, each equipped with their charm, there is an abundance of recreational activities available to Niagara residents. With an extremely competitive real estate market, it is no surprise Real Estate professionals are seeing a diverse range of individuals moving to the Niagara Region.

When Kerry accepted an opportunity to take the next step in her career as Chief Marketing Officer with PenFinancial Credit Union, a life further away from the city and closer to the country seemed like a perfect fit. Before taking on the new role, she did not consider settling in Niagara but always enjoyed visiting well-known wineries and tourist attractions in the region. We asked Kerry to explain what it is like to find a home in Niagara.
