I grew up in Vancouver and happily moved to Victoria on Vancouver Island. I was drawn by the incredible natural beauty that surrounds us. Our mild weather, beaches, hiking, boating, golfing, skiing and gorgeous parks make Victoria a desirable place to call home. Victoria has a natural environment close by and all the amenities of a large center including our university, medical facillities, theatres, music festivals and restaurants.
I have been successfully selling real estate since 1994 and continue to have a passion for it. My Mother was a Real Estate Broker in Vancouver and her enthusiam was passed on to me. I have enjoyed owning and redecorating several different types of homes throughout Greater Victoria. Although the real estate market has it's ups and downs, one thing always remains the same, people need somewhere to live and want a home they love and can be proud of!
EXPERIENCE IS KEY TO A SUCCESSFUL SALE
I specialize in Residential and Commercial Properties and have been involved in hundreds of sales. As a result, I have developed a high level of expertise in marketing, contract negotiation and helping to put buyers and sellers together. I pride myself on a professional and honest approach to real estate sales. My dilgence and reliability have earned me the respect of my clients and fellow Realtors alike. I have been recognized with many MLS and Company Awards for production and service.
I have earned many Real Estate designations including my Broker's License which has allowed me to be a Past Manager of Sutton West Coast Realty, Canada's #1 Brokerage. I also have the Rental Management and Strata Management designations from the Sauder School of Business at UBC. My studies also included the Real Estate Appraisal Program and many computer, home staging and photography courses. Throughout the year I attend many real estate seminars to keep current with industry changes. My education and practical knowledge allow me to be a resource to my clients and my fellow Realtors.
