Our homes are one of our major investments, often linked with strong personal ties. Buying or selling a home ranks amongst my client’s most important and often stressful experiences. I therefore approach my task with sensitivity, concern, personal and professional competence. I strive to give you celebration, not aggravation with the process of buying a home.
To you as a Buyer it is important to be confident with the representative you hire to help you find the “right” home. I believe it is very important to not just shop around for the right home – but the right REALTOR®!
I have enclosed a brief summary outlining some of the important differences in both myself and my company, for your perusal.
RE/MAX LifeStyles Realty has shown a strong presence in the Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows, and now Langley community since its’ opening in 1996. RE/MAX LifeStyles REALTORS® specialize in residential and commercial Real Estate, as well as Property Management. We have over 75 FULL TIME, PROFESSIONAL, SUCCESSFUL sales associates working in the community, constantly matching qualified buyers with serious sellers – the result of which are shown on the attached graph. Our office adheres to a pledge of higher standards in all real estate dealings and demonstrates a strong commitment to the community. RE/MAX LifeStyles Realty, in its commitment to the community supports Children’s Miracle Network, B.C. Children’s Hospital, and Maple Ridge Hospital plus a numerous amount of various other charity events throughout the community.
I have been a full-time licensed REALTOR® since January of 1991. I am a past Director and Treasurer of our local Real Estate Division and Vice Chair of The Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows Division. I was also recently appointed by The Board of Directors to Chair The “Professional Conduct Committee” at The Greater Vancouver Real Estate Board and it is my 15th year on this panel. I have qualified as a member of the “Elite” Master Medallion Club for fifteen years and have recently become a Diamond Master Medallion Member. This membership only takes the top 7% to 10% of over 15,000 REALTORS® of The Greater Vancouver Real Estate Board. I have also achieved 100% Club Status with RE/MAX since 1991. I hold the designation of R.R.S (Registered Relocation Specialist), A.B.R. (Accredited Buyer Representative) , C.N.E. (Certified Negotiation Expert), and am presently working on my Masters in Negotiations. I am extremely passionate about my business and the quality of service I can provide to my clients.
Some personal information about myself is as follows; I am married to Greg, have three adult children, Dalyn, Brent (Chantelle), and Kristi (Richard) and am a proud grandma to Jayden and Riley. I have been a resident of Pitt Meadows since 1986. My family has been involved in hockey, boating, horses, tennis, dog 4H club and gymnastics. In my personal spare time I enjoy playing slo-pitch, golf (or as I call it – I enjoy walking acreage and holding a club), and walking on our dykes, with my Portuguese water dog “Fenway”. (Yes, I’m a proud Red Sox fan too!)
I believe it is important to give back to my community and I like to participate or assist in various events, such as chairing a committee for our Ridge Meadows Summer Games or being a committee member for Pitt Meadows Day, or a term as Pitt Meadows Commissioner for Parks and Recreation. I have also enjoyed being a Director for the Asante Centre, which is dedicated to diagnosis, education and support of those affected by F.A.S.D. (Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder). I also enjoyed volunteering at our 2010 Olympics and participating in that once in a lifetime event! I am presently giving back to my Community by being a Mentor in our local Youth Diversion Program and am a Director for The Pitt Meadows Day Society and organizing this year’s famous Salmon and Chicken BBQ.
With our ever changing Real Estate, legal and technological Industry I am consistently upgrading my education in order to stay “Ahead of the Crowd!” Therefore able to be creative and cutting edge with my marketing and negotiation skills. You can be assured that I will be providing you with the “Real Estate Service You Deserve!”
I enjoy very much specializing in the buying and selling of Real Estate and having the opportunity to work from “sign” up to “sign” down with you!
I look forward to working for and with you!
