About Me

I'm passionate about real estate and ensuring my clients real estate needs are met! My point of differentiation is my extensive business background, an MBA from Simon Fraser University and my total commitment to providing exemplary service and in-depth knowledge to my clients in every real estate transaction.


An active participant in all things Vancouver, I have served on the Advisory Board of the Vancouver International Sculpture Biennale, the Board of the Endeavour Society, as a Director of the Arts Club Theatre, the Stanley Theatre, Simon Fraser University’s Executive MBA Alumni Board and Director of the BC Chapter of the American Marketing Association.


My membership at the Vancouver Art Gallery allows me to indulge one of my other passions - art and sculpture. Not only does the Gallery present some exciting international exhibits, I'm also able to see some of the best private collections in the City and out of the City. During my past tenure as the travel chair for the Art Associates, I have been involved in private tours in Washington DC, Seattle for tours of exhibits at the Seattle Art Museum, the Chihuly design studio and glass garden as well as numerous other galleries. Most recently, I travelled with the Art Associates to Chicago for an amazing tour of art, sculpture and architecture - Chicago is a most amazing city!!!

I love Vancouver and one of my greatest pleasures is showcasing this great city to people from around the world! Vancouver has so much to offer in terms of beauty, culture and community!


My mission is to provide the essential information, relevant facts, up-to-the-minute real estate market statistics and knowledgeable guidance that give my clients the competitive edge...every time in every real estate transaction.


My proven marketing systems deliver outstanding results and my step-by-step information kits ensure that each client has a comprehensive understanding of the real estate process.
