A Bit About Me In Real Estate...
I have lived in Calgary for over 14 years now and have been investing in Real Estate locally since 2004. I have purchased and sold in the downturn as well as the peak of the market, so I am very familiar with our price cycles and how they work. I have also sat on the condo board (as President) on most of my condo purchases so I am very well versed on condos and what to look for as a primary residence and/or investment.
In 2009 after 7 years in Sales and Management at TELUS I left the comfort of the corporate world and decided to start my own business in the Real Estate Industry. My initial step was to become a Mortgage Broker. This gave me a great opportunity to interact with buyers and Realtors in order to get a thorough understanding of what works well and what doesn’t.
I always felt I had a really good grasp on the lending side of things, having successfully purchased two homes in Calgary, so I undertook to complete my Real Estate Licences while doing mortgages full time to pay the bills.
Upon completing the Licence and Certificate process, I transitioned into a fulltime career in Real Estate. I have since consistently been a Top Producer in our Calgary brokerage (Century 21 Power Realty) and in the top 5% Nationally as Centurion (the Century 21 top producer award) year over year and have sold over 60 million dollars in volume of Real Estate transactions. I feel very lucky to have found a career that provides enjoyment every day and allows me to meet awesome new faces along the way.
I know there is always a choice in this business. With that said, I understand the key components of working both sides of this business. Knowing the market, being accountable to your client, answering your phone and being a tough negotiator on both sides of the deal are Key. I am a firm believer in pricing properties properly and will use multiple avenues to source out market comparables to ensure I can defend pricing once an offer is made. I believe in tough negotiations for my clients and will push to make sure no money is left on the table in the end.
My commitment to all of my clients is the same and communication is the key to any successful transaction.
I look forward to working with you soon!!
