As a REALTOR®, I pride myself on being a hands-on guy. When you work with me, you get me. What that means is you get my full time, attention and expertise on call seven days a week. Response time is crucial to me, so I make myself available to my clients. As a client, you will also receive constant feedback to ensure you are always aware of and up-to-date with the progress being made.
Having been in the business for 30 years, my training and experience make me feel comfortable with every kind of transaction, although I have particular expertise in:
- First-time home buyers and sellers
- Downsizing (Clients have complimented my handling of this emotionally charged process)
- Estate sales and other family matters
- Court order sales (In which I have over 25 years of experience)
- New construction (I spent years working in the construction industry before becoming a REALTOR®)
- Buying and selling of tenanted properties
- Multi-family developments
Whatever the situation, I take the time to explain the process to my clients and they trust me to act in their best interest. Over my 30 years as a REALTOR®, I have built up a long list of useful skills, tools and tactics. However, I also recognise the need to keep adding to that. I am not adverse to learning and utilising new technologies in my work.
One tool I have developed over the years and which offers a strong benefit to my clients is my “right-price analysis.” This is a two-step evaluation of your home which pulls together a lot of research and different factors. This lengthy process allows me to arrive at a proper, explained valuation of your property.
To further serve my clients’ needs when selling their home, I offer a personal guarantee of service. Be sure to ask me for the details.
I am also a strong believer in community and have called the Lower Mainland home for my whole life. I am deeply rooted in my local community, having raised three biological and numerous foster children here. To this day, I remain active with my church charities and with several local charities. Although I live in the Tri-Cities, I feel just as at home working across the region in locations such as Maple Ridge or Surrey.
Of course, it’s not all work. I unwind by running the inlet trails around Rocky Point or by watching live music. I’ve been going to shows since my teens and still manage roughly 20 shows a year. I’m a big believer in enjoying life, and for me, part of that is going outside my comfort zone. With that in mind, I recently started ballroom dancing and learning to play the guitar.
