This is one of the biggest and most exciting purchases in your life, why not use a professional?

I will work for you every step of the way! With my combination of skills, experience, and technology I can sell your home for the highest possible price and in the shortest period of time. Here are some of the many tools I have to meet the demands of a highly competitive, modern market.

A Unique, Automated Internet Marketing System Online Presence:
Available 24 Hours a Day!

Our online marketing system allows me to make information accessible 24-hours a day, and to respond immediately and directly to each and every prospective buyer. From my website, prospective buyers can get information immediately about your home. They can access my site 24 hours a day and view your property listing!

Traditional Marketing

Pricing Your Home

When you think about it, there are several other homes for sale competing with your home. I will help you price your home competitively to attract qualified buyers. The way I do this is by generating a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) report, which will show you a range of prices being paid for homes in your area. Simply contact me and I will do the rest!

Every Step Of The Way...

Remember, I will be working for you every step of the way to make sure that you get the highest possible price for your home in the shortest period of time.

I was born and raised in Chicago and received a Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Illinois in Economics and Accounting.  After graduating from University, I packed up and moved myself to San Francisco and New Mexico for work, and finally settled on Vancouver Island in 1995 where I now enjoy my life in tranquil Maple Bay.  It was in my early 40s that I decided to pursue my love of real estate, and haven’t looked back since!


I have always been actively involved in the communities I’ve lived in, as well as in the schools and sports of my two children.  I enjoy boating, travelling, good food and meeting people from all over the world while managing my vacation rental property in Maple Bay.


I have worked in the accounting and business administration fields and bring my experience together with my love for people and real estate to the Cowichan Valley where I am a Realtor with Pemberton Holmes Ltd.  I have been featured in the Top 10% of the Company, and I enjoy my career as a Realtor because every day brings a new challenge and I get to meet so many great people along the way.
