My family arrived in Alberta in the late 70’s as refugees when the economy was in a recession. We moved to Vancouver when I was just three years old, and it took my parents 11 years to save up for a down-payment to purchase a house in North Delta. We all made many sacrifices. My parents worked hard and were frugal. All my clothes were hand-me downs from my older sister, and I remember receiving my first pair of runners really late at 12 years old, which was a huge deal for me as I was an athlete and part of the track and field team. My parents saved up every penny for that house, and this left me a deep impression.
Now in my career, I help clients buy and sell their houses, some of whom remind me of my parents, the kind of people who made sacrifices. I always feel honored when I can work with people like that.
I have sold over a hundred houses and every experience is unique. That’s why I enjoy my job. It is stimulating and social, and many of my clients and colleagues have become my friends. I am not just a Realtor, I am also an Associate Broker with HomeLife Benchmark Realty, and one of the founding partners of Plenty Real Estate Group. I am also a member of the Fraser Valley Real Estate Association, British Columbia Real Estate Association and the Canadian Real Estate Association.
I volunteer for Big Sisters and am a director at White Rock Farmers’ Market during my spare time.
