“I am very fortunate to be in a business that I love and get energized from it every day. Each deal is different, and offers unique opportunities. The bigger the challenge the more I enjoy the process.
In my business the first priority is to protect my client’s interest and having seen it all I know how to do this. I have been through some of real estate’s most challenging periods, from high interest rates to plummeting home values, and through this I have learned invaluable lessons. I bring those years of experience and skills to every project I encounter. And as market trends continue to shift I find new ways to pursue business and open up new opportunities for my clients.
My interest in architecture, history and design has been invaluable to my business. Being able to visualize the potential for a property has provided many clients opportunities that otherwise could get overlooked. With my established relationship with all trades of the home business I offer my clients the best, most cost effective means of readying their home for the market. Through my services I also assist my client’s in making their new home their own.
The North Shore is a great community and it’s a pleasure working here. The homes and investment properties have their own unique stories and qualities. I learn all I can about each property and its history so that I can share this with prospective clients as it is an integral part of the sale process. Information on the surrounding community is just as important so one can appreciate the community offerings in deciding where to live or invest.
The most enjoyable aspect of my work however is the clients I have had the privilege to work with over the years. I have worked with wonderful and interesting people who all have unique interests and experiences. They have provided me with new insights and perspective that have helped me become a better broker over time. Many long term relationships have resulted as well which I continue to appreciate and enjoy.”
