think of luxury and when only the best will do, who better to create a grand design for none other than the artist Prince himself? Falbo renovated the singer’s 16,000 square foot bungalow in Toronto’s Bridal Path area. She also just completed renovations for two other homes in the same community: one of which was complete with an indoor basketball court and indoor pool. Falbo’s work can also be seen in Toronto’s Avenue Road and Lawrence area. Today you’ll find Falbo creating grand homes in Oakville with her husband as they develop three lakeside homes in West Oakville on Westdale Drive. She says they’ll be built in 2015-2016 and are currently for sale. “They’ll have panoramic views of Toronto Skyline and Lake Ontario,” she describes. “These

The exteriors of Grand Estate Homes are always constructed with the best materials, says Falbo. “We use Indiana cut stone all hand carved with Indiana custom molding. These homes are solid built; they will be there for many generations.” Working in a field where changes can happen at any given time, what has surprised Falbo the most? “One must be able to overcome obstacles and make quick decisions without any delays,” she says. Obstacles and challenges come with rewards too. “I enjoy everyday challenges; they become ongoing learning experiences and growth in personal development with my company.” Just like Falbo had a chance to admire French architecture up close and personal while travelling, she enjoys knowing that the homes she has built with quality and detail will be around for generations to come here in the GTA and adds that “one day my grandchildren and great grandchildren will drive by and say ‘my grandmother built that’!”
Falbo isn’t afraid to don a hardhat and work boots and be on site six days a week if she needs to. When evening comes she can be found creating floor plans and project designs. She is an adept multi-tasker who strives for quality, innovation and creativity on and offsite. Quality time spent with friends and family is also a priority. “I have four children and four grandsons that I’m proud of and I hope one day they’ll want to build with their grandmother,” she says, adding that she loves to cook, entertain and always find the time to help friends and family. “I never say ‘no’ to anything,” she admits. “I always say if there’s a will I will find a way.” And given the opportunity to create stunning homes with equally impressive interiors for her clients, she definitely will. What does Falbo do when she’s not working or spending time with family? She puts her hardworking, focused and project-driven energy into staying on top and ahead of the next trend alongside fueling her passion for the beauty of architecture worldwide and loves living in Oakville. Oh, and another thing she does when she's not working, travelling or entertaining? Buying real estate, of course. What else?
