My family is my everything, as you can see we are a bunch of dorks that love to have fun.
My philosophy on helping my clients buy and sell real estate is that things don’t have to be serious all the time, the journey can be fun and we have to remember the destination…..your new home.
No matter if you are buying or selling a home, I have you covered on every aspect of the transaction from inspectors to lawyers to mortgage brokers to stagers and handypeople (I am pretty sure I just made that word up).
I have been selling real estate for 13 years, I am a HUGE Green Bay Packers fan, I love to play golf (poorly), camp, hike and spend time on vacation in either Hawaii or Fairmont, BC.
