A Realtor® who’s done his homework.

I believe it is important to listen to the needs of my clients and to act in their best interest, while educating them about the process that is the real estate transaction. It’s your money that is being spent, and I am honoured to hold your trust in this process.

Purchasing a home can be a very stressful event and process. For first time buyers or those from out of the area, it can be even more so because of the element of being a new experience. I help in this by striving to be approachable through listening, educating, communicating, and sometimes using a bit of humour. My background as a teacher and writer assists me in helping you find the information you need to lower the stress of not knowing what is going to happen next in the process. Also, clarity in a transaction helps us all to make sure the greater goal you seek is achieved. I believe your goal should be my goal in the transaction: to allow you the opportunity to find the home that you want with all of the conditions fulfilled in a way that you can live with comfortably.

After 14 years in real estate, I have the experience to guide you not only through the process, but also to anticipate situations with which you will need assistance and by providing services – setting up a correct internet auto search, organizing showings, suggesting financing professionals, finding the right inspector, knowing what municipal office to call, or putting you in touch with a professional who can give you the correct legal advice on a question. I look at the big picture as well, and can offer a different perspective about whether the home you are considering may in fact have issues or be in the right kind of neighbourhood for your needs, have the services you need, and be within a reasonable distance from the other places that are a part of your busy life. These are just a few of the things I do to assist you, the buyer.

In short, I will not only provide the professional knowledge you need to act in an informed manner, but I will act as an advocate for you in this competitive and fast paced market.
