Born and raised just off Main Street, I have been crisscrossing the streets of Vancouver my entire life and know the unique advantages and hidden jewels of each of the city’s many neighbourhoods.
My passion for real estate began at the age of 10 when I first learned about the power of leverage and rental to make money by owning land. I am now a Vancouver property owner myself and am passionate about helping others enjoy the social, economic and environmental benefits of home ownership.
My understanding of real estate, economics and Vancouver’s neighbourhood-specific market, in combination with in-depth knowledge of socially and environmentally sustainable living practices, great customer service skills and the ability to understand the specific needs of my clients, makes me an ideal Realtor who can think outside the box and will find you the right home or buyer at the right price.
Beyond my traditional real estate work with home owners and investors, for the past 3 years I have been involved in the promotion of co-ownership as a viable housing model, and co-fouded CoHo BC, www.cohobc.com, an initiative to support and encourage real estate co-ownership across the region.
Before real estate, my professional experience included over 15 years as a consultant and educator helping to inspire sustainable living practices for individuals and institutions across Canada, the United States, Europe and the Middle East. I have published numerous internationally distributed educational curricula on green living and environmental ethics, and authored Canada Line Adventures, a guide to transit and sustainable recreation in Vancouver and Richmond, BC. I have been featured on radio and television locally and internationally including CBC’s “On the Coast” and “On the Island” and CKNW radio’s “Christy Clark show”, as well as in numerous newspapers and magazines.
My passion for real estate as a means to financial and social wealth makes me the ideal realtor to tirelessly search for a property or buyer that suits your needs. Contact me to begin a conversation about your housing needs.
I understand the challenges of home ownership in Vancouver as well as the opportunities for community building and wealth acquisition that real estate can bring. I am committed to helping my clients find homes that meet their needs.
