Professionally, I started my career at Macdonald Realty in the early 1990s and have always specialized in the Westside/Downtown condominium and townhouse market. I have also worked in Asia for industry-related companies allowing additional understanding of Vancouver's diverse customer base. In 2006, In order to provide better service to my clients - I joined forces with Lynne Pement. This is allowed both of us more opportunity to schedule viewings, properly research sales data, and provide me access to her vast knowledge of the "House Market". Recently, we have teamed with Steven Toth to maintain our strong presence in the Yaletown and the Kitsilano condominium community. The mutual benefits have exceeded all expectations as the over-all conditions change daily and a second or third opinion has proven to be invaluable in every aspect.
The Vancouver market has evolved greatly over my career with new construction techniques, retrofitting of defective designs, and complex changes to governing legislation. Through this time, I am known to have maintained expert product knowledge, dedication, and my sense of humour. I had the rare occasion to be hired as a Rookie at Vancouver's oldest and most prestigious Agency. They offered me an absolutely outstanding training package and they still excel at support and innovation. Today, my higher production volumes have been acknowledged with ELEVEN Macdonald Realty Sales Achievement Awards and I am considered to be a consistent Top Producer. I am equally proud and certainly appreciative that 90% of all recent sales have been made by past clients or as a result of recommendations made by past clients.
On the personal side, I grew up in Nova Scotia but fell in love with the vibrancy of Vancouver and the beauty of the West Coast. I still have strong family ties back there and that helps me recharge a "some-what" relaxed East Coast attitude. Travel has always been my number one diversion and I have been around the world satisfying that. Five years ago, I discovered boating and am happily exploring the wonders of the local waters. Otherwise, my downtime is very grounding: landscape design, upgrading the townhouse, and endeavouring for a proper level of fitness - like running in Pacific Sprit Park (weather permitting). I also truly enjoy fine-tuning this website and trying to come up with creative ideas to keep it unique from all the others. Frankly, a well balanced lifestyle makes for a great work attitude and allows for natural diplomacy for those rare occassions when the Buyers and the Sellers don't quite agree.
