Since 1999, I have sold homes in just about every Calgary neighborhood, surrounding town, and worked with almost every nationality. I started out working as a buyer's agent. Working solely with buyers I quickly gained a strong understanding as to how buyers think, which in turn has give me better skills in regards to preparing sellers. After 3 years of consistent hard work I was fortunate to quickly rise to one of the top agents in my office and won numerous awards. With these accomplishments I was asked by the Calgary Real Estate Board to sit on various committees and offer my feedback on how to improve the quality of agents entering the industry. I have a strong belief in education so I'm always looking for better ways to improve my level of service. In my 4th year I decided to obtain my Brokers license and perform the duties of an Associate Broker. With a better understanding of The Real Estate Act, Rules, Regulations, By Laws, and The Code of Conduct, I can better protect my clients. One of my strong beliefs is not only investing in oneself but also in Real Estate for retirement. I own property in Calgary and Canmore. We have to be our own client and do the things we are asking our clients to do. I am always amazed at how few of our industry members actually invest in Real Estate. I have a passion for helping others succeed which is why I decided to get involved with the Alberta Real Estate Association and become a part time instructor teaching new Realtors entering the industry. Seven years ago I opened my own regional franchise which then led to my Global Franchise, Coldwell Banker Mountain Central.
