rennie team tuesday - Mandy Olexson

Meet Mandy, a new member of our growing advisor team. Learn 13 fun things about Mandy including what led her to a passionate career in real estate, a special collection her family has grown over years, and a stand-out travel destination.

What inspired you to join rennie
rennie has always been a well known and respected real estate company. When VPG Realty made the move to merge with rennie, it was a no-brainer for me to join the brokerage.

What led you to a career in the real estate industry
Concord Pacific gave me a sneak peek of the real estate industry. I had thought about doing it as a career for a long time but it wasn't until I met Eric Langhjelm at VPG Realty that I decided to go for it. It's never too late to chase your dreams.

What’s one thing most people don’t know about you
I'm good at sports and people never expect that from me. I can play golf, pool, darts, and basketball. My husband has never beat me in a game of 21. 

Song you can sing word for word
I can actually sing a lot of songs word for word. My friends are always amazed by that! 

What brings you the most joy
Seeing my children happy and smiling. 

Your favorite thing to splurge on
A great bottle of wine or a special meal out!

A collection you've amassed
We collect vinyl records as a family. Music is always on in our house. My son is very interested in the early 1900s so we have a record player and a gramophone too. 

Best outdoor space in the city
Whytecliff Park is a hidden treasure in West Vancouver. I got married there and my mom grew up there. It holds a lot of meaning for me.

A personal mantra to live by
"Don't be afraid to give up the good to go for the great." - John D. Rockefeller

A stand-out travel memory
Malaysia was a very unique travel experience for me. I really enjoyed the food and the heat. We went to a butterfly park, visited caves, I met the King and Queen. It was very memorable!

A charity you feel passionate about
I feel very passionate about animal charities. We adopted our cat from Action for Animals and he lives like a king in our house.

Most memorable job prior to real estate
My first job was working for Vera herself at Vera's Burger Shack in Dundarave before it became a chain. 

A decompress method for stress
Listening to music and dancing.
