A little something about us
How long have you been a REALTOR® and what other career experience do you have?
I have been a REALTOR® since 1990, and experienced great success in various types of markets. My experience includes ownership, management and finances. I was a Broker/Owner of four real estate offices with approximately 200 realtors. Throughout my career I held various positions such as Recruiting and Retention Manager, Coaching & Mentoring Manager, Operations Manager and Training Facilitator. I currently manage several rental properties, fund second mortgages to help homeowners with debt consolidation, and I am the Team Leader for LeRoy Warden & Associates.
Why did you seek out a career in real estate?
After attending the University of Alberta, I realized that I had a strong interest in being self-employed. I wanted to be my own boss and in control of my own destiny. During my University years, I owned a company that designed and distributed flyers for REALTORS® and small businesses. This experience triggered my interest in real estate and being self-employed. I was also strongly influenced to join the world of real estate by a number of successful individuals that built wealth through the ownership of real estate. I too someday wanted to own real estate.
What excites you most about being a REALTOR®?
The single most thrilling aspect about being a REALTOR® is the ability to customize and execute the process of buying and selling a home for each of my clients. It feels amazing to elevate to such an exceptional level and deliver world class service that makes my clients say ”wow”.
What sets you apart from other REALTORS®?
One of the remarkable qualities that I possess is my ability to listen. I hear what my client’s needs are, and use my experience to help them discover and clarify their overall objectives. I am also very detailed oriented; therefore I fully explore the minute details of my client’s plans to avoid any future surprises. Lastly, I am the father of three beautiful children and I understand how challenging it can be to manoeuvre through the selling and buying process for families. We work closely together to address all aspects of their transition for each individual in the family to make the move as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
What are your hobbies and what are you most passionate about?
My hobbies are working-out, yoga, hiking, spin exercise, long walks in the Edmonton river valley trail system, cooking, travelling, reading (mostly audiobooks) and recently started to golf. It is very challenging for me to choose which I am most passionate about because they are all an intricate part of my lifestyle. They all bring great happiness and positive energy into my world, which then allows me to share that feeling and energy with others.
