I am proud to say that I was born and raised here on Southern Vancouver Island. Over the years I have had the opportunity to live in almost every lower island neighborhood, and am currently residing in the West Shore with my wifeand 4 children. While I could be considered a “local expert” in all corners of Victoria – I am currently based out of, (and have extensive knowledge of) the West Shore Area.
My passion for this Island continues to grow stronger over the years, and to be making a living helping people to buy and sell real estate on this gorgeous rock we call home is a dream come true!
I absolutely love helping people with one of the biggest and most important transactions of their life. I feel that the deep roots I have here (combined with my extensive knowledge and expertise of the local real estate market) make me a very useful tool for my clients.
I have grown up and spent most of my adult life living in beautiful Victoria, BC. I absolutely love everything this amazing city has to offer! I graduated Parkland Secondary School in Sidney, BC and completed the Professional Golf Management Program at Camosun College. Since graduating, I have had a very successful career in retail management. I have managed a variety of businesses in the jewelry, electronics, and clothing industries.
A dream of running my own business, and a passion for real estate, has made becoming a REALTOR® an ideal career choice for me. Growing up in Victoria has given me extensive knowledge of all the communities in the Greater Victoria area. My local background, combined with my relentless desire to provide the highest standard of service to my clients, makes me an ideal choice for any of your real estate needs.
As is often said, real estate is about location, location, location. I have extensive knowledge of the Victoria, BC area and can help you find the right home for you or the right buyer for your home.
