Uptown Mug #70 . Litsa Daeres

A true ambassador and ambitious lady with a genuine passion for our uptown community, Litsa Daeres is the driving force behind many of the developments and upgrades uptown.  A lifelong resident, and active in community, she always has a beautiful smile on her face and a good word to share about urban living and the fun it can be.  She is a prime example of a millennial, loving life in Uptown Saint John!  Keep your eyes on Germain Street – new, mod, high end apartments are in the works, thanks to Litsa!

 

Let’s get to know Litsa,

Where were you born/Where are you from?

Born and raised in Saint John, lived on Germain Street for 26years. My parents are actually going on 50 years there.

 

How long have you been a part of the uptown scene?

I’ve been apart of the uptown scene my entire life 🙂 born, raised and worked uptown.

 

Who do you look to for inspiration?

I would have to say my father inspires me, I’ve never seen anybody work harder than him. He landed here from Greece when he was 23 without knowing the language and  couple of dollars, everything he has he’s done himself by working day and night. 
What is your favourite season?
Summer…I love all the flowers.
What is your Uptown Insider Tip? 
 I love when the cruise ships are in. There’s nothing better than seeing all the people walking the streets, eating at our restaurants and shopping at our local stores. It Makes our city seem so alive and vibrant, I would love to see our city like that all the time. Sometimes I drive down the streets and think to myself…”why don’t more people live here? It’s so pretty.”
