Katie Mills grew up in Toronto and attended high school at Branksome Hall. She continued her studies at the University of Western Ontario where she graduated in Honours Sociology.
Like her sister Sue, when she was very young, Katie knew that she wanted to follow in her father’s footsteps. She loved hearing his clients recount stories of him convincing them not to buy properties that he knew were not right for them. He would always follow up by finding them a better alternative. Witnessing his integrity instilled in her his honest long-term approach to service.
In 1992, Katie joined the family real estate business. She loves the camaraderie and support of working within a team and takes great pride in continuing the family’s tradition of excellence.
Katie and her husband Dr. David O’Connor live in Leaside balancing the delights of engaging careers and three busy young children Mason, Davis and Dawson.
Spending time at her cottage with family and friends and indulging in her lifelong passion for water skiing, are two of Katie’s favourite pastimes. She also enjoys a wide variety of other athletic pursuits and loves being involved with her children’s school and sports activities.
