Thanks for taking a moment to get to know me, I hope I get the opportunity to do the same with you!
As a new arrival to Canada in 1978 I was excited to be in a country where anything was possible! My passion for helping others grew out of this gratitude coupled with a strong commitment to a community that welcomed us.
I graduated from the University of Guelph in 1991 with a major in Psychology, I became a Caseworker with the Region of Waterloo. My role involved meeting the needs of people in the most vulnerable of situations which taught me how easily circumstances could change and the power of financial stability.
Considering my own financial stability, I purchased my first investment property in 1993 – a duplex. It was this path that led me to become a Real Estate Agent in 2003, then on to becoming a Broker. Since then, I have expanded my portfolio not only to provide that financial stability for my family, but to provide safe and clean homes for other families.
In my personal life, I’m a proud husband and father of 3 children. I love nothing more than spending time with my family, friends and those in my community. Always trying to reach new heights, I obtained my private pilots license in 2014 and enjoy the pleasure of flying in my free time.
All my years of investing in Real Estate have provided me with a wealth of knowledge and many investment strategies tailored to every type of Investor and Homebuyer. My passion for Real Estate is my edge but my commitment to giving back to my clients is my drive.

Looking for a Real Estate Agent who puts you first?
If you’re planning to buy or sell a home, you want the process to go successfully. If you’re selling, success means getting your property sold quickly and for the highest price possible. If you’re buying, it means finding your next dream home and getting into it, affordably. On top of that, if you’re like most of my satisfied customers, you also want everything to go smoothly, with as little stress as possible.
How can you ensure all that happens? By working with a real estate agent who truly puts you first.
I’m proud to be the real estate agent of choice for those who want a great experience buying or selling a home. My “clients-first” approach means that you’ll be working with a professional who listens to you, provides expert advice, and works hard on your behalf.
The Expert by Your Side
When you’re selling: My track record of success means I know how to showcase your house effectively, market and promote it so that it attracts qualified buyers and get it SOLD for the highest price. Throughout the process, I’m with you every step of the way, making sure your questions are answered, all the details are handled expertly, and the entire experience is a positive one.
When you’re buying: My expertise in the local market means I can introduce you to homes that meet your criteria – and notify you immediately of brand new listings. I can advise you on what to look for when viewing a home, so you don’t make a catastrophic mistake, and I can arm you with in-depth details on every property you see. When you find a home you fall in love with, I know how to negotiate effectively so you get that property, at the best possible price. In fact, nothing pleases me more than saying, “The home is yours.”
The Right Real Estate Agent for You
Whether you’re buying or selling, it’s ultimately about realizing a dream. I understand how much the decision will mean to you. In fact, that’s one of the reasons I became a real estate agent – to help people buy or sell a home, while making the process easy and trouble-free. Clients often tell me how much they appreciate my expertise, my willingness to be there with them every step of the way, and my determination to get them the best deal. They also tell me I’m friendly and a pleasure to work with – which is quite a compliment!
