having completed BCIT’s three-year Diploma Program in Building Technology with a specialization in Land Economics.

Growing up, I’ve worked in every aspect of real estate development: land acquisition, working on construction sites, managing construction sites, contract negotiation, project design, permitting, show home construction, show home sales team management, and marketing, where I ultimately became Vice President of United Properties. Eventually, my passion for working directly with clients led me to becoming a Realtor and my personal favourite aspect, sales. My goal is to empower my clients with knowledge.

Home Staging

I know what sells a home. As a residential developer, I have helped to create many show homes. Whether a client needs to de-clutter, landscape, renovate, or simply dress up a home, my construction and design experience serves my clients in maximizing their sales value and return on investment.

Professional Photography

In this competitive marketplace, professional photography and videos make sure my clients’ properties have improved appeal and will get noticed more easily. These images evoke an emotional response before a single word in a listing description is read and actively engage potential buyers. As a result, the buyer pool and sales value both increase.

Professional Marketing

Image is crucial in a competitive real estate market. This is why I align myself with Vancouver’s most innovative branding and marketing companies. Together, we produce professional marketing materials to project the right image for a property.

More Marketing Channels

Unlike other Realtors who simply rely on standard Multiple Listing Service (MLS) listings, I also bring attention to my clients’ properties through brochures emailed to my Realtor database, my website, RealtyLink, Just Listed postcards, periodicals, Craigslist, and Open Houses marketed to both agents and the public.

Connection to the Real Estate Community

I strongly believe in building relationships not only with my clients but also with my fellow Realtors. My listings get shown to every agent within TRG Realty, BC’s fastest growing brokerage, providing a high level of exposure to Realtors with buyer clients. This gets more exposure for your property, creates a positive interaction with prospective buyers, and often results in a higher sales figure.

Knowledge and Passion

My clients often remark on my enthusiasm and I am willing to bet that I put more heart and soul into my work than most Realtors. I have considerable knowledge of land and home values through my background as both a Residential Developer and Realtor, and I’m constantly reviewing the market to distinguish asking versus sales prices.

My market understanding reinforces my strong negotiation skills, and helped me close complex land deals for properties valued in excess of 40 million dollars. I realize that money is a great motivator, so I offer a large commission to Buyer’s Agents in order to attract more agents to my clients’ homes.

Shady Realtors

Things they Say

Now that I have your attention. Some Realtors will say anything to secure a listing and earn a commission.  It is important when a realtor approaches you to really understand where a realtors loyalty lies.  Is it to the you, as the seller, or is it to the buyer? As your agent you want to make sure that there is not a conflict of interest.

Marketing

Does it Make it Difference?

I was holding an open house recently and a seasoned real estate agent approached me and said, “Why are you spending all of this money on brochures and photography? The home is going to sell anyway.” As Realtors, it is our job to maximize the selling price of a home through proper marketing. It is not enough to just throw it up on the MLS system.
