Biography

I have a total of over 15 years in the real estate business in downtown Vancouver and the surrounding areas of the Greater Lower Mainland such as False Creek, Fairview Slopes, West Vancouver, North Vancouver, East Vancouver, Kitsilano or Point Grey.  All of those years have been spent in the areas surrounding th eDowntown Peninsula. I know the market area! I have lived in the West End/Downtown area almost 20 years and work there and in the surrounding communities.

Being a graduate Civil Engineering Technologist, I have taken a strong interest in learning why buildings leak and which buildings leak or could have problems. I spend a great deal of  time with clients educating them with respect to the process of buying Vancouver real estate and selling Vancouver real estate as well as the issues and problems to be concerned about when buying a condominium. 

I have put together a Home Marketing Plan and a Home Buyer Plan that is second to none. In addition, I work with very few clients at one time in order that I can provide a high degree of service and attention to detail for each. I personally attend all showings on any properties I list for sale. Because of this and other reasons, I have many repeat real estate customers, some going back all 15 years.

If you are contemplating buying a home or investment in Vancouver, I strongly recommend that you avail yourself of the services of a competent Realtor. What many people don't understand is that, as a buyer,  it costs you nothing! In real estate, the Seller pays all of the Realtors costs for both parties!

With changes in technology, you can now let your Realtor do most of the legwork and keep you fully informed at the same time. I have all the latest equipment, and even if you are out of the country, but have access to the Internet, it's almost the same as being here. As your Realtors you receive the from us the following benefits:

  • Personalized service, prompt return of all phone calls and e-mails.
  • A binder containing all the real estate information you will need to understand the costs of purchasing your property or investment.
  • Referal agents for you if you require assistance in getting a mortgage, require a Building Inspector, or need the services of a Lawyer or a Notary Public.
  • Home tours will be arranged for you of properties in your area and price range.
  • New properties coming available in your area and price range, will result in your being called or emailed the same day, and showings will be arranged immediately.
  • You will be forwarded the full listing information on any new properties you might be interested in, via the Internet.
  • If you are buying or selling th ehome you live in (Principal Residence), I will provide you with Tranquilli-T INsurance at no cost to you.  This Insurance will cover you in the event of many problems which can occur after a real estate transaction has been completed. 

In other words, I will be there for you!, before you buy, during the home buying process and after you've made your home purchase, and remember there is no charge for these services!

REAL ESTATE .......IT'S ABOUT SERVICE!!!
