A little about myself: I have called Victoria home since 1996, when I moved to the island from a small town called Terrace, B.C. Shortly after I moved here, my late father (a Realtor) introduced me to real estate, and in 2008 I decided to pursue it as a career. Unfortunately my timing was poor - I got my license just before the real estate market crash! Although it was a challenging time to be starting out my career, I think it has helped me better understand market trends and how to work effectively in both buyer and seller markets.
Before becoming a Realtor, I ran my own painting company (Prestige Painting) for 5+ years. During this time, I had the opportunity to meet with, and work for, a variety of clients all over Greater Victoria. I found that I really enjoyed the process of meeting with new people to discuss their homes, and finding out what they were hoping to achieve with a new look for their home. I got a great sense of accomplishment tackling big projects and turning weathered homes into stunning results. This experience taught me how to work with people in such a way that they were excited to pass my name along.
Now in 2018 I'm celebrating over 10 years as a Realtor in this great city. Working with sellers to market their homes to achieve top dollar feels great, and handing keys to buyers (especially first timers!) is a thrill that never gets old. I have experience helping clients buy and sell all types of properties (from trailers to mansions) in all areas of Greater Victoria (from Sidney to Sooke to Shawnigan lake and everywhere in between). I specialize in residential real estate, including detached, semi-detached, strata, rural, foreclosure sales, and leasehold properties.
My business practice as a Realtor is simple and effective - always be available, answer questions thoroughly and promptly, give advice that is in my clients best interest, and most of all do a good job! My clients have described me as friendly and easy going, professional and punctual - references are available upon request. If this sounds like the type of Realtor you are looking for, please call me or email me and we can get started. Thanks for taking the time to read my bio!
