Experience is the perhaps the most essential attribute of any successful realtor. Consistently ranking in the TOP 10% of realtors in the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV), I have sold hundreds of homes in a real estate career that first began in 1980. The best way to gain experience is through hard work so I'm a full-time realtor . . . and then some!
While my qualifications help open doors, my people skills keep me there. I honestly love working with people and this natural ability to make and maintain strong client relationships has allowed me to base my success on the best type of advertising of all - "Word Of Mouth". Really listening to the needs of my clients and constantly striving to make the whole process as enjoyable as possible is fundamental to building these relationships. Being versatile, I work equally well with both buyers and sellers striving to give each the personal service and attention that I have built my success upon.
I service the region from Coquitlam to Mission, BC, specializing in areas of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. My expertise is in residential real estate including: single-family homes, homes on acreage, town-homes, apartments and new home construction and I really thrive on the variety these different fields have to offer. In addition I was a director of the REBGV for two years, and a director of our local division for six years.
On a personal note, traveling is a big passion of mine and over the years I have visited many continents. I've enjoyed the challenge of trekking in Nepal, white water rafting in Africa, parachuting in Matsqui, scuba diving in Israel and learning to fly an airplane in Pitt Meadows. Now, I'm experiencing the greatest and most rewarding challenge of my life... parenting my son!
So know that I welcome the challenge of putting your dreams into reality. I've sold hundreds of homes, let me help you with your next move.
