What is your approach?

Full service. I work with you throughout every step of the process and keep you informed at every opportunity.

For Sellers, this means I come prepared with a custom, comprehensive plan to actively market your property. I believe that each property is unique and deserves its own tailored approach.

I incorporate traditional marketing and the latest technologies in order to maximize exposure to your property and get you the highest price possible in the shortest period of time.

For Buyers, this means I exhaust the possibilities to find you the right property. Expect a lot of property tours and Open Houses!

I use effective research programs that allow you to save time and see properties about 2-3 days before they hit Realtor.ca. This ensures that you see properties first and there are no missed opportunities. You are also given unlimited access to Realtor information and are updated with sold prices in real-time.

I spend a lot of time with my clients to understand their needs and to facilitate buying and selling. To better serve my clients, I have an administration and marketing staff to handle all the incidentals, so I can focus directly on client care.

Education and professional background?

I completed an undergraduate degree (BA Honours) before completing my Masters Degree at the University of British Columbia.

Upon completing my education, I worked in Marketing/Market Research for a leading Market Research Firm. I then went on to work as a Litigation Analyst for a Vancouver-based company, focusing on land claims and boundary disputes.

I’m good at research, planning, and structuring arguments. These are helpful skills to have in real estate. I can better interpret stats and data, develop strategies that work, and negotiate on a solid foundation.

He was generous with his time, diligent in all aspects of his work and, generally, a great guy to be around… His local knowledge is deep and his strategies work. He navigated through the price negotiation phase with confidence and with a plan.
