I sell detached homes, townhomes and condos. I also handle property estate sales and foreclosures.

My market evaluations for properties are always free and without obligation.

I am very personable and easy going and I am a good listener. I treat every sale as if it were my own home.

For 10 plus years, I was in the medallion club which is achieved by being in the top 10% in sales for all Vancouver agents. That designation of Medallion Club is for all agents regardless of Company based on the number sales achieved each year.

Many of these sales occurred in Maple Ridge, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Langley

My advertising has been on the internet, the local Real Estate Weekly, The Yellow Pages and on the back of buses. I have even been on CKNW's radio talk show to discuss the real estate market and the benefits of selling properties with myself and One Percent Realty Ltd.

Co founder of the Langley 'AAA' atom hockey tournament. Former minor league hockey & baseball coach. I have an in-depth knowledge of the current housing market in the Coquitlam, Maple Ridge, Port Coquitlam, Pitt Meadows, Langley and Port Moody areas.


  1. The real estate market tends to be fluid and subject to change.
    The statistics I am seeing at this moment are that the current real estate market has more Buyers than Sellers. Many properties are being sold in days or weeks rather than in months. This is putting pressure on property prices.
  2. Today, it is much easier to give a home greater exposure at less cost to the home owner.
    The internet provides a way of marketing your home to potential buyers across Canada almost immediately. An example is the MLS® web site at: www.realtor.ca
  3. More and more Buyers and Sellers are computer savvy and do a lot of the looking on their own computer.
    Those that do, then may now tend to tell the real estate agent which properties they want to see.
  4. I have had full price offers on several properties from out of province sight unseen based totally on the virtual 360 picture tour.

If you are buying or selling real estate or just curious,.... 'test my knowledge'
