When you work with The Jody McDonnell Team, you not only get experience and professionalism, you also get humour and personality! We will help steer you through the buying or selling process, and make it as enjoyable as possible for you!

Jody McDonnell grew up north of Toronto in Caledon Village, and spent a great deal of her time in other west-end areas like Orangeville, Brampton, and Mississauga, where she bought her first home. Jody worked for many years as Associate Director of IT at Bell Mobility, but always wanted to be her own boss. In 2004 she chucked corporate life to follow her dream of working as a Realtor, and met her wife Ali while showing her houses in 2008! Jody went on to earn her Real Estate Broker’s license in 2014, and consistently achieved top-tier status in her profession. Despite her busy work life, she has always found time to give back to her community, volunteering for several years with Meals on Wheels, and other charities such as Habitat for Humanity. In her spare time, Jody can either be found at a Blue Jays game, or on a trail with Ali walking their three dogs (leaving the cat at home).

Allyson (also known as Ali) Scott grew up in Winnipeg and Regina before settling in Markham. She earned a degree in photography, and spent 18 years working in both Sales and Artist Services at a stock photography agency, while also running her own freelance photography business. This east-end girl lived in the Village and Rosedale areas for many years, and got her first taste of the real estate world by managing an apartment building with 60 tenants for a few years. Like Jody, Ali has an affinity for seniors, and volunteered as a musical performer at a nursing home for 12 years, before joining Jody on her Meals on Wheels route for another couple of years. She left the corporate world in 2013 to help Jody with the marketing side of her business, and in 2016 she earned her real estate license. The Jody McDonnell Team was officially born!

Together we achieved the Royal LePage Diamond Award in 2017 and 2018 (top 3% of Toronto Royal LePage agents), and the Red Diamond Award in 2019 (top 2% of Royal LePage agents across Canada). With our business growing at a steady pace, we decided to expand our team in 2020, and were lucky enough to find our new partner, Crystal Daley.

 

Crystal was born and raised in the Don Mills community of Toronto, where she enjoyed balancing a fast-paced city life with her love of the outdoors. She honed her skills in sales, customer service, and negotiation while working as a Financial Services Manager with the Bank of Montreal. Despite a full schedule with work and raising three children (and one Bernese Mountain Dog), Crystal decided to pursue her dream of a career in real estate, and earned her license in 2019. She recently moved to the Alliston area with her family to fully embrace the tranquility of country living.
