Sell Your Home From $10,000



Comprehensive Services. Award Winning Results. Why Pay More?


I believe I am the SMART CHOICE when it comes to buying and selling a home in Greater Vancouver and the Fraser Valley. As a local resident, with a 24 years experience and approximately 1,000 successfully closed transactions, I’ve got the tools to get the job done. I am a fully licensed, full-service agent with 2% Realty in Maple Ridge, BC, happily serving my local communities.

Here’s the thing: recent years have brought about significant changes to the real estate industry, making new commission models viable. What makes me different and so successful? I don’t fight the changes in our industry – I embrace them. I offer a unique combination of an efficient business model, a full-service approach, and comprehensive marketing, to ensure my clients get great results and save money. I don’t cut corners, and I don’t promise you the world, but I do promise to act with honesty and integrity and to sell your home for all it’s worth! Bottom line: it’s your equity – keep more of it.

Ultimately, success in the real estate industry is about consistently ensuring that the client’s needs are met and goals are achieved.  Delivering results is what counts. Year after year, I take pride knowing that the bulk of our business comes from past clients who have been happy enough with the results I have helped them to achieve to recommend me to their friends and family, and to use me again. It is because of this network of happy clients that I have been able to consistently rank among the top agents in the business, both at our company, and in the Real Estate Board rankings overall.

  • I am within the top 1-2% of all REALTORS® in the REBGV for several years running
  • I am consistently in the MLS® Medallion Club, which recognizes the top 10% of all member agents
  • I have well over 1000 combined career sales

My aim is always to ensure that my clients get the best value possible in a smooth, stress-free transaction.

It’s Simple

A property that shows well, that is priced right, and that is marketed professionally, will sell, regardless of who is listing it, and regardless of how much commission the seller has agreed to pay. Buyers don’t care whose name is on the lawn sign, or whose smiling face is beside the listing. Buyers only care about whether the property they are considering purchasing fits their criteria and their budget. This is intuitively obvious.

That is why, when I list your property, you can count on your property being sold within a reasonable amount of time, for a great price. Your property will be advertised in places everyone is looking, including MLS®, other websites, and newsprint. Your property will be marketed to the world to its maximum potential using leading marketing techniques. Buyers’ agents from other local brokerages will show your property. You will get advice from two of the top agents in the business.  You will sell, and you will get the best price you can get. You will simply walk away with more money in your pocket and that is what I strive to do as your Maple Ridge 2 Percent Realty expert.
