Residential real estate is something I have been extremely passionate about for as long as I can remember. I have many friends and family in various roles within the industry and have always found all aspects of real estate so exciting. It was an amazing feeling when we built our first house that we owned something that we could start our family in. As our family grew and career opportunities changed and evolved so did our real estate requirements and my interest in real estate grew. I had been told by many people I need to get my license because it was clearly what I was passionate about. So, I did. I want to help people find the same joy and satisfaction I feel knowing we have made a great decision for our family about the properties we own.
I draw more from personal experience when I answer this question because residential real estate is personal. There are so many experiences and memories attached to your property. I have bought 10 properties over the last 20 years and the process of finding the right property for the need has been so interesting. I have learned so much over the years of what works and what needs to be adjusted to achieve the goal. I love researching different communities and what they have to offer the residents of that area and how they fit into the need and wants of the buyer. Calgary and the surrounding areas have so many amazing communities and so many options that fit with all types of requirements. Marketing for sellers and highlighting what they have to offer is so critical because everyone wants to sell with confidence. Having a whole team of people who have the same goals and work together to get the seller the best price for their product so they can move forward to the next chapter of their lives. I love helping people with first homes, new builds, quick turn overs, vacation properties, investment properties, and their personal residence. It is so satisfying knowing people are confident they have made the right decision for them.
We have a property in Montana and our family enjoys spending time with family and friends there. The Oregon Coast is one of my favorite places we have travelled. Cannon Beach is a pretty little town right on the ocean that has gorgeous views of the ocean and Haystack Rock. I would love to visit Spain and Portugal so that is next on my list of places to see.
I enjoy all different genres of music. Bruce Springsteen, Chris Stapleton, Kings of Leon, Eminem, I cannot pin it down to one band. The same goes for movies and books – Gone with the Wind, The Outsiders, The Shawshank Redemption, Life is Beautiful, So I Married and Axe Murderer, The Princess Bride. Too many to list.
I love baseball. More specifically watching live baseball games. I try and plan travel around an opportunity to go to an MLB game and love going to the Dawgs games in Okotoks.
