A west coast realtor specializing in recreational resort property in Ucluelet and Tofino on the west coast of Vancouver Island near Long Beach.
I was born and have lived all of my life on the West Coast of Canada. I have combined a love of nature and the outdoors with a University of British Columbia education in Site Planning and Urban Land Economics and 35 years industry experience to develop my pragmatic approach to real estate consulting. As a consultant, I know the value of knowledge and experience as it applies to your real estate investments, which will likely be the most important financial decisions you make in your life.
In our spare time my wife and I love to travel, particulary to China. We have more trips planned and I am studying Mandarin to make the trips more enjoyable.
If the weather is good, I like to get out on my Harley Davidson. The road to the west coast of Vancouver Island has seen much upgrading in recent years and it is a great ride. If you haven't been to Long Beach in a few years, the road is now much better. With one million visitors each year, it is about time that the road saw some maintenance.
I also love fishing the west coast and from April through September you will find my friends and I out on my 28 foot Bertram going for Salmon and Halibut. If you enjoy fishing, you should give me a call - there is plenty of room on board.
I am a bit of a techno geek. I bought my first computer in 1982. I have developed and sold software over the years and I use that experience and knowledge to create and maintain my web site and its prominence in the search engine world. My wife tells me this doesn't qualify as spare time but it interests me and I rather enjoy it.
Education and Experience
Education and Experience:
- Diploma in Urban Land Economics from the University of British Columbia - Certificate in Site Planning from the University of British Columbia - Former Operations Manager of a large survey/engineering firm - Multiple RE/MAX 100% club winner - Owner of a residential construction company - Owner of a west coast resort
I am a firm believer in lifelong education and maintain memberships in the following organizations:
- Real Estate Institute of BC (professional member) - Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver - British Columbia Real Estate Association - Canadian Real Estate Association - Planning Institute of BC (associate member) - Wild Pacific Trail Society (former president) - Ucluelet Chamber of Commerce - Tourism Ucluelet ( director)
Thanks again for everything. We are very grateful for the advice you gave us on how to price the house so it would sell quickly. We are very happy with not only the price we got for the house but the prompt sale. We would gladly recommend your services to anyone. Terri Silverthorn and Gerald Murphy
During a brief visit to Ucluelet - we bought a property! We had the good fortune to deal with Cliff McCool, who helped us arrive at an acceptable deal for all parties, provided us with excellent long-distance service and advice, and has continued to keep us in contact with events in the local market. We recommend him without reservation to anyone considering real estate in the area. Amy and George Robinson
Cliff, I just wanted to thank you for all of your help in my Tofino town-home purchase. I can honestly say that it wouldn't have been as smooth as it was had you not acted in the professional manner that you did. In particular, you were always timely in responding to my questions / concerns and always worked in good faith ensuring that my interests were always well represented. This was made all the more difficult (and therefore all the more commendable) given the logistics of me being in Vancouver. In the future, if I do purchase / sell in the area again I will be sure to look you up. Further, if I have any other friends / family looking to buy, I will be sure to recommend you. Chris Allegretto, Vancouver
Just wanted to say thanks for everything you did for us, especially dropping of the keys on Wednesday and covering the hotel room. I have dealt with a lot of real estate agents and must say that you are far and away superior. Thanks again. Clark Deutscher Branch Manager Coastal Communtiry Credit Union, Ucluelet
