In 1998 I moved to Secret Cove -- just north of Sechelt and south of Pender Harbour – on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, B.C., and have never looked back. The combination of spectacular scenery, mild climate, outdoor activities, fresh air, sunshine and small town ambiance have captivated me. If you already live here you know exactly what I mean. If you are contemplating moving here, you are in for a treat.
But let me tell you a little about myself. After achieving the position of marketing manager for a Fortune 500 firm I became restless and became an entrepreneur, starting a very successful home renovation business. After moving to the Sunshine Coast in 1998 I started a high-end tile setting company here that brought me into contact with many beautiful homes and interesting people. A career in real estate was the next logical step in 2003, and it has worked out very well both for myself and my clients.
In the meantime I also achieved my helicopter pilot's license, commercial airplane license and floatplane ticket. I built our new house. I am an intrepid sailor, and love to play golf.
Giving back to the Sunshine Coast community that is my home is very important to me, and my volunteer efforts reflect that. I am a crew-member and chandler of the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue (RCM-SAR) unit based in Halfmoon Bay, and regularly go out on training and search-and-rescue missions. I am also Vice-Chairman of the Board of the Pender Harbour Seniors Housing Society, which is building an affordable seniors housing complex in Pender Harbour.
As well, I have volunteered my time and excavator at the Sunshine Coast Botanical Garden to move a lot of earth around!
As you can see, I have a wide range of interests, which gives me a broad perspective on life and people. All these skills and aptitudes come into play when I am helping you buy or sell your Sunshine Coast home or real estate. I know how houses should be constructed, how to market them, and I can even fly you to those secluded island properties!
