Kitchener has always been my home. Having grown up and spent most of my 39 years in the city, I know these streets and the area intimately and love helping people develop a better understanding of the neighbourhoods and their charms so that they can make informed decisions in their real estate transactions. I love this area so much, I have made it my permanent home with my wife and have chosen to raise my two young daughters here. Service is in my blood. Son of a firefighter and a strong woman who worked for women’s crisis services, I have been in sales and customer service my whole life. I truly enjoy this career where my love of social gatherings and getting to know new people is required!
Over the last decade, I have perfected the art of consulting with real estate clients to ensure they are fully informed and prepared to make all their real estate decisions. I’ve developed contacts for dependable local contractors, have renovation experience and understanding, and am a Certified Accredited Home Stager so that I can ensure you get the best value in the quickest amount of time, with the least hassle. I love sports and being active, especially hockey, soccer, and skiing, and can help you find a home that is close to all your leisure needs. I’ve travelled to over 25 countries and enjoy learning about other cultures. Give me a call and find out how I can help you!
I believe in a people-oriented approach. I’m in this business for the long term, not for short-term results or goals. I want you to be happy, well-informed, and comfortable during the entire process. My hope is that you then feel confident enough in me afterwards to refer my services to your friends, colleagues, and family. To me, this means being hands-on when needed and responding to your messages in a timely fashion; giving you all the facts and realities involved in your decision so that there are no surprises along the way, and bringing some fun and excitement into these experiences. I enjoy maintaining connections with past clients and seeing them so satisfied with their decisions, that they come back again when they are ready for their next move. I like to keep myself informed on what's happening in the Region and up to date on real estate trends, neighbourhoods, new local social scenes and leisure activities so that I can ensure you are comfortable and confident with your decisions, and get the best price, in the quickest amount of time.
Principles and Ethics
I believe in and practice the principles of HIT (Honesty, Integrity, and Trust). My word is my bond, my character is what defines me. Being an Ethically sound person is not my decision, it's my responsibility.
It is important for me to give back and show my appreciation to others, whether that be through annual charity events (like Hockey Helps the Homeless, Easter Seals, etc.), donations, helping family and friends when I can, finding the best deals for my neighbours and clients, or connecting people with honest and fair professionals.
First Class Communication
My communication is above average. I am always connected. My number is public and available. I can be reached by my clients, agents or anyone looking to connect with me. I have a great response time and can be reached via text, email, phone and social media. Reach out today, to see for yourself!
