My vision is to provide the very best service while focusing on each client’s unique needs. My strength is knowing the market and its unique characteristics.

I believe my clients have had a positive experience with my services, as many of them have bought and sold with me, numerous times over the years. Referrals are a cornerstone of my business and without the help of you, and your continued support in sending me your family and friends, my business would not prosper. I am passionate about what I do.


I will simplify your buying and selling process leaving you with a satisfied experience.
By using the latest technology and market research, I will minimize the time needed when searching for a new property. I am noted for my strong negotiating and effective listening skills as well as my attention to details.


As a member of the Canadian Professional Sales Association, I will draw on the experience from a group of 30,000 marketing and sales professionals. As a member of the Canadian Real Estate Association and Vancouver Island Real Estate Board, I will draw from a vast array resources to market your home.


I was born and raised in Vancouver attending John Oliver High School, UBC and BCIT. I met Eloise Dunbar, a native Nanaimoite and thought Nanaimo would be the perfect spot to raise their family. I was right. My wife and I have two great children, Christy and John. They attended Seaview Elementary in Lantzville and then Dover Bay Secondary in Nanaimo.


I am an active member of the community being involved in a number of volunteer organizations, service clubs and local politics. I know Mid Vancouver Island well having worked on several official community plans and a third term councillor in Lantzville.
I am a Charter member of the Lanztville Rotary Club, Chamber of Commerce, Nanaimo Squash club, Nanaimo Yacht Club, Nanaimo Curling Club, Vancouver Island Regional Library board and executive committee, past member of the Lantzville volunteer fire department, past trustee and chairman of the Lantzville Improvement District.


I believe in supporting local charities such as Dragon Boating, Childrens Miracle Network, Nanaimo Silly Boat Races, Cancer Run for Cure, Lantzville Rotary golf for a cure, Parksville Beach Festival and numerous minor sports organizations including the Nanaimo Pirates Baseball program.
I am guided by 5 principles:

  • Focus on customer

  • Commitment to excellence

  • Strong sense of ethics

  • Shared accountability and transparency

  • Belief in people

  • Good realtors will always protect and put their client’s interest first
