I grew up in Langley, aside from a four-year stint as a commercial pilot I’ve been selling real estate my entire adult life. Real estate is in my blood by now and I’m enjoying the work more than ever now that I’m a little grayer. I have sold over 700 homes. I’ve got the industry awards listed below and I’m proud of them but I don’t put too much stock in those things, trophies and plaques don’t get me work, they only communicate experience.
Experience is huge for the person looking to buy and sell their largest investment but what good is hiring a person with experience if you’re treated like a number? Just another listing in the realtor’s inventory. I take a personal interest in my clients moving plans; my clients know exactly how to get a hold of me when they need to talk.
As we launch their home onto MLS or begin the house hunting search, we’ll know exactly where we are on any given day with respect to the plan we’ve laid out. I’m getting close to 20 years in the business I’m lucky that I’m supported by repeat and referral business as the mainstay of my work. As I embark on my veteran years as a realtor I’ve adopted a few axioms:
Professional rules to live by:
- Don’t take on more work than I need. I want to enjoy what I do
- My clients deal with me. My assistant handles support and administration
- Be creative, an artistic realtor is more effective and has fun
- Be a resource to my clients
- What you put out is what you get back
- Be in the present most of the time
- Life is inherently meaningless- It’s up to me to give it meaning
My awards and credentials:
- RE/MAX Lifetime Achievement Award
- RE/MAX Hall of Fame
- RE/MAX Platinum Club
- MLS Master Medallion
My interests go far beyond real estate. I’m an avid dirt-biker, My passion is art, I enjoy painting small studies on location or large works in the studio. You can see my work in a couple fine art galleries locally.
