I became a licensed realtor in 1988 and I have enjoyed an active and successful career. Prior to this I wanted to be a professional student and I finished studies in, Business Administration Management Diplomas at Okanagan College, then Marketing and Real Estate Studies at B.C.I.T. and finally Urban Land Economics at U.B.C. Thus, letting me collect a number of diploma’s and degrees and finally settling on everything leading to an outstanding real estate career.
Early on, in 1996, I completed the Agent’s Course allowing me to manage my own real estate office and allowing me, Associate Broker designation. In 2016 I completed the coveted CCIM (Certified Commercial Investment Member) Accreditation which less than 1% of Commercial Brokers hold in North America.
For 2 years, besides selling real estate, I also managed the Coldwell Banker Real Estate Auction company where we sold millions of dollars of condominium development properties, making both the developers and the buyers very happy in those tough years.
Top Sales Awards I achieved along the way are too numerous to include still, for recognition, the Medallion Club for the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver, a Chairman Circle Office Internationally and also Coldwell Banker Presidents Elite Status offering me Top 1% Internationally, to name a few.
I am an instructor at the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver teaching our members, Strata Wind-Up.
In all my years in Real Estate I have taken the direct approach to selling. I have found the truth works much better than any other sales technique taught to me. My clients appreciate my candor and straight forward approach, and this has offered me a long career in repeat and referral clients. This is how I came upon the phrase “Your Friend in the Business.”
