My name is Roxanne Osicki and I am a Realtor® with eXp Realty, servicing the Battlefords. I pride myself in being Saskatchewan born and raised but prairie invested! I grew up in Yorkton, Saskatchewan. As a child, I was in music - piano lessons, voice lessons, Royal Conservatory of music examinations, I played clarinet and bass clarinet in concert band and clarinet in marching band and was lucky enough to play the bagpipes in the Yorkton and District pipe band. I grew up playing sports, being actively involved in extracurricular groups and school, and being a member of the community that helped raise me.
The paths of life took me on a few adventures - the most important...meeting my husband and creating our amazing family! We have three fabulous boys who have a zest and curiosity for life like no other. And I am very proud to be able to call myself their mom. (can you tell!!??!! haha!) We have not always called the Battlefords home, we have lived in Yorkton, Saskatchewan, Peace River, Alberta, and Shaunavon, Saskatchewan. Our family relocated to the Battlefords in the summer of 2015, and are so very proud to call the Battlefords home.
I started what I call my "adult" career with Citifinancial Canada, in Yorkton. I worked as a customer service representative for them for a few months and based on a few factors was promoted into their accelerated management training program. At the branch level, I worked in lending(personal loans, Home Equity loans, Mortgages) and collecting, soliciting and sales. From there I was promoted into a manager at large, working directly within my region. I traveled to a variety of branches throughout Northern Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Northern Alberta. I was very involved in the establishment and opening of a branch in one of the territories(where we as a company had never done business), Yellowknife. I decided that traveling within the company was not conducive to raising a family, so decided to settle as a Branch manager in Peace River, Alberta. I worked in that branch for a couple of years and then decided to try my hand(literally) in a career as a massage therapist. Massage therapy had always been near and dear to my heart, as it was the only thing that after being in a car accident got me through pregnancy with my oldest child. I started my career in massage therapy and enjoyed practicing in a spa I co-owned with a dear friend.
My husband worked for a company in Peace River that was expanding, so we were fortunate enough to take a transfer to bring us back home to Saskatchewan in Shaunavon, and I was able to run a successful massage therapy clinic and wellness retail space. After two years of being in the south, we were offered another transfer to the beautiful Battlefords.
Since the summer of 2015, we are proud to now call the Battlefords home. We alike many people moving to the area had preconceived notions of what we were getting into, where we were going, what life was going to look like. Honestly, when we started house hunting I'm sure we looking at close to one hundred properties. We counted on a realtor to provide us with some basic information about the area. My family and I have lived in different centers and experienced many different walks of life...THIS makes us unique. We have created memories and have watched our children's firsts in DIFFERENT houses...this makes us unique. We have had to uproot our children and ourselves from everything we knew...to create new space...to find a new place to call home...THIS DOESN'T MAKE US UNIQUE. We are all looking for that special place where we can bring house to home.
