I started my real estate career in 1981, shortly after I graduated from the Commerce and Business Administration program at the University of British Columbia. From 1981 until July of 1986 I worked for Block Bros. Realty (which years later became NRS) in the Cambie area of Vancouver. Those were interesting times in the housing industry, when interest rates climbed into the 20% range and sales were few and far between. But they were also an excellent time to learn and develop strong business habits.
In 1986 my wife, myself and our one year old son moved to Nelson, back to the Kootenays where my wife and I had both been raised. We’ve since raised another son and a daughter.
I’ve now spent more than 32 years living and working in the Nelson area, including three years in the early 1990’s when I managed a branch office in Castlegar at a time when I was a partner in the company. I’ve since sold off my share and concentrate my efforts solely on the business of assisting buyers and sellers with their real estate needs.
I am a full time Realtor and I take a great deal pride in my work. This includes; the ability to help you locate that perfect new property just made for your dreams or the listing, marketing and selling of your property. As a licensed property manager, I am also able to manage your rental property for you.
Moving back to the Kootenays has allowed me to renew my passion for the outdoors. When the opportunity arises I enjoying fishing, skiing and touring the mountains around the Whitewater Ski Resort and hiking in the summer and fall. And we always make an effort to do a little camping at some point in the summer.
In addition to a 31 year membership in the Nelson Rotary Club, I am also the current President of the Kootenay Real Estate Board.
