My Clients are the most important priority in my business.
I take the time to listen and spend 95% of my time, energetically assisting my clients with my personal unprecedented service. As their trusted Real Estate Consultant, I view my relationship with my clients as one for life, long after the transaction of their home.
Since word of mouth is the strongest endorsement, I am honoured when my clients refer me to their family and friends.
My vision is a refreshing and honest way of doing business, ... one customer at a time, ...and it starts here with you.

Having sold Real Estate since 1997, I believe Hard work, Honesty & Market Knowledge are keys to success. I've lived in the Tri-Cities for 25 years, and I've seen a lot of Realtors come and go. I think if you truly put your clients best interest first it doesn't go unnoticed. Once you prove yourself and do a good job, this business gets easier.
Negotiation tips: Every negotiation and every client is different. It's very important to be respectful and considerate at all times. People are inviting us into their homes and it is usually a very stressful time for all parties involved. There is so much more to an offer than price (although a very important part). I find that often when I break an offer down to it's smaller parts, and take the time to listen to the client's needs and wants, I can come to a mutually beneficial agreement. Negotiation is honestly one fo the most enjoyable aspects of this profession and it can make or break a transaction.
Words of Wisdom:Remember to put yourself in other people's shoes. Always listen to what your clients have to say and find out what is most important to them. Always look out for their best interests and treat your clients fairly. Tell your clients what they need to hear (not necessarily what they want to hear). Remember you are building clients for life, so do right by them and watch your business grow.

Home Inspection Services
Here is a sample list of Registered Home Inspectors that do a lot of work in the Lower Mainland.
It's recommended that you phone a couple of different companies, and make sure that you feel comfortable with what services they will and will not provide in the inspection report. Pricing can also vary between Inspection Companies. Please note that this is simply a small list of qualified home inspectors that work in the area. Inspector's now require a license to operate in BC.
Please go to http://www.cahpi.bc.ca for more information on Inspection services and always ask to see your inspector's license. It is also beneficial to have an inspector who has at least one trade ticket, as he/she would then be well trained in the systems of the home. Please feel free to ask the inspectors if they hold any tickets
