As a child, I grew up on a farm located just over an hour north of Kitchener-Waterloo, where I was lucky enough to watch and be a part of the growth of my parent’s business. This really pushed me from a young age to look at things from a high-level perspective. To gain further valuable knowledge in the business field, I pursued post-secondary education and received my Bachelor of Commerce in Management. During my time in school, I had the opportunity to do many things including an exchange to a University in Spain where I focused on international business. However, one of the most impactful opportunities I had at school was taking an elective in real estate. This program really cemented the idea in my head that real estate was the path for me. I had always thought about becoming a Realtor®, as a lot of my childhood was “property hunting” with my father on weekends where I was exposed to a lot of the ins and outs of the trade. Since that time, I have been able to be a part of a lot of real estate transactions including severances, rezoning, and building permit applications at a hands-on level. This is all knowledge that I will be able to bring forward into my career. With my business-driven mindset and passion for real estate, I look forward to helping people find their dream homes.
With any decision in my life, I always found it much easier when I had all the information needed to make an informed decision. As a Realtor®, I want to bring that same feeling to all my clients. As buying a home can be one of the biggest purchases in someone’s life, they need to have a Realtor® they can depend on to not only do their due diligence but also to help them make the best decision for their situation. I want to take the stress out of purchasing a property by being fully transparent about every transaction, all while ensuring the needs of my clients are the highest priority. Your experience is incredibly important to me, as I hope to build relationships with my clients that will last a lifetime.
My whole life I have found that no matter what the situation is, going in with a positive attitude can make all the difference. With a positive mindset, I find it much easier to overcome obstacles and find the best option that works for everyone involved.
I think in many situations people would rather bend the truth or say nothing than give someone negative news or admit a mistake. I am a strong believer that doing this only prolongs the inevitable. For this reason, I prioritize honesty as it allows you to get ahead of any negative situation so that we can deal with the problem and keep moving forward.
Determination & Hard Work
Growing up on a farm, working hard until the job was finished was normal and has been the way that I have operated my whole life. Whether it be staying up throughout the night to close a deal or putting on the work boots and clearing out the basement, I will always go the extra mile for clients and never shy away from work.

Three Things to Know About Me
Explorer and Outdoor Enthusiast
I have always loved exploring; this is true whether I am on an isolated lake in northern Ontario or in the downtown core of a foreign country. The idea of experiencing and seeing something new keeps pushing me forward.
Built for Speed
From the time I could walk my dad started teaching me to drive. This started with a small ATV at the age of 3 and continued throughout my life. Anything from mountain biking, boating, snowmobiling, ATV’s, white-water kayaking, if it’s got wheels or an engine count me in.
It's Game Time
Two things you will always find in my car are a deck of cards and a spike ball. I am a person who loves to get a game going, no matter what the game. I think it is the best way to meet people as nothing brings people together like a little “friendly” competition.
