Buying or selling a home can be one of the most significant life events people will ever experience…it represents big lifestyle changes, and has large financial implications too. It can be fun and exciting, and also a bit overwhelming and stressful at the same time! However, having an experienced and trusted advisor in your corner to help you navigate your way through the process can make all the difference.
I have been a full-time licensed Realtor® with RE/MAX Kelowna since 2006. Over the years, I’ve had the privilege of helping guide clients through over 700 successful real estate sales or purchases. Despite the constantly changing marketing conditions, in a continuously evolving industry, I never lose sight of the fact that people’s lives can be considerably disrupted and impacted in so many different ways during the time we are working through this process. My top goal through all of this, is to remove as much of the stress as possible by providing you with sincere and genuine advice, so you can focus on making smart decisions.
In fact, over 80% of my business is coming from past clients and referrals year after year, which is a testament to my “relationships over transactions” approach, which is a key reason I maintain my position as one of the top producing agents in the Central Okanagan. At the end of the day, I know that I help enough people get what they want, my business will continue to grow.
On a personal note, I moved to Kelowna in 1990 from the small farming community of Arborfield, Saskatchewan. My wife Erin, and my young kids Ava, Benson and Madison love the Okanagan lifestyle – it’s no wonder so many people love to call this great city home!
In my free time, I love spending time with my family, camping, playing guitar, travelling, golfing (poorly!) and snowboarding.
Prior to selling real estate, I lived in Vancouver for 6 years, in hopes of pursuing a career in music, playing in a band called Run The Red Light. And while our dreams of stardom never quite came true, we had a lot of fun, recorded several albums we are still very proud of, and enjoyed touring Canada over a dozen times. We had the pleasure of sharing the stage and touring with so many great artists including Stone Temple Pilots, Big Wreck, Default, Theory of a Deadman, Nickelback, Bif Naked, Tea Party, and many more! We’ve had our music featured on numerous TV shows, and even got to perform during the Vancouver Olympics in 2010. While music is still very much a passion of mine, marketing and selling real estate, and spending my spare time with my family is my main focus!
