Interview with a Realtor | Cait Banks

Welcome to Bryant Realty’s Blog Interview Series, an inside look at the incredible community of Bryant Realty. Read on to learn about this week’s guest and Bryant Realty’s Agent, Cait Banks| Licensed Executive Assistant to Sandra Bryant + REALTOR®.


What advice would you give to first time home buyers?

To work with a realtor you trust because the steps are complicated – you have to be honest when it comes to looking at a potential home.

Just because the bank approves you for a certain borrowing amount does not mean it should be the max budget for your home. You don’t want to find yourself house poor – its about finding the right balance between affordability and standard of living”

What is your earliest HRM memory?

Going to Mic Mac Mall when I was little with my uncle, and I remember holding onto the back of his shift because I was so afraid of all the people, and it was during Christmas time too, so it was crazy! We were going to see Woody the Christmas Tree and remember it being such an enjoyable experience once I finally got to see him!

What are your hobbies?

Long drives, off-grid living on Pictou Island off the North Shore of Nova Scotia, lobster fishing, cooking, and enjoying everything Nova Scotia has to offer.

What do you consider your most significant achievement so far?

Completing my Masters in Social Anthropology within the fishing industry. It is a male-dominated environment so still gaining respect as a worker and as a professional in that industry was a great achievement for me.

Within a short time within the Real Estate Industry, having my skill set recognized by Sandra Bryant and having moved into the role as her Licensed Executive Assistant has been absolutely incredible!

What is your favourite property we currently have listed at

23 Bayview Cresent, Prospect Bay for sure!

What’s your greatest extravagance?

I like to keep things very simple but eating out would be it if I had to pick, some of my favourite restaurants in the city would be The Mic Mac Tavern, Chaba Thai, and Misu Sushi.
