Melissa Francis Executive Assistant Extraordinaire!
Originally from Toronto, I was always a BC girl at heart and a die-hard Vancouver Canucks fan (sorry Toronto). Since watching the Canucks on my little black and white television, I was inspired to move across the country to Vancouver in 2007 and I have never looked back. Being a military spouse led to my relocation to Victoria in 2015. I love the transition from the busy Lower Mainland to Island life!
I bring my many strengths of organization, project management, communication, customer service, computer skills and prioritization (to name a few) to the role of executive assistant to ensure the best satisfaction and care is given to every client.
More than just an Executive Assistant, I am a loving spouse and Mum to an amazing daughter and many furbabies. I love experimenting behind the lens of a camera and enjoy the creativity that photography inspires. I have always been fascinated by the vastness of space and the mysteries the universe contains. I relished playing hockey as a goalie for many years and cherished the opportunity to defend my net.
I look forward to assisting you in the process of finding your dream home.
I was connected to Elysia through my daughter who worked with her in the past. I have purchased a number of homes and Elysia is by far the most competent and pleasant person I have worked with. Always ready to help whenever I needed information, any phone call or email was answered promptly and the problem attended to directly. I thank you Elysia for making this purchase quick and easy.
Good day Elysia,
Firstly I would like to send my big appreciation to thank you for your patience, time consuming, recommend, referral, and assistance to help me getting a place to call home. I have been in touch with few realtors from many open houses I visited but I was still in renting for more than a year since the date I moved to Victoria. I thank you for listening to my story at work as well as my expectations for an ideal home. I thank you for guiding me with mortgage, home inspection, and necessary steps to complete the purchase within 3 months since I start telling you. I thank you for taking me to see any potential listing anywhere anytime regardless the weather and special date in your family. I finally find my dream home. It’s super wonderful to work with you, have you as a personal realtor, and especially get a good care of everything to find a right home. You’re the right person I need to introduce widely to my family and friends.
