Work hard. Play harder.
I am extremely happy to be living an working here in the Fraser Valley. In my heart Abbotsford has always been my home. Real Estate has been a part of my life almost as long as I can remember. My father, Hank Van Nes, sold real estate in the Fraser Valley from 1989 until his passing in November 2005.
Raised on a raspberry farm in Abbotsford and playing rugby in Vancouver for several years during high school and university I experienced the best of both the country and city life. Chosen for regional & provincial rugby teams including Vancouver, Fraser Valley, BC Under 19, BC Senior Women's and CCSD (a Canadian development squad) it was clear my enthusiasm for the sport had no end and led me overseas to New Zealand to play rugby for Wellington and Wellington's NPC team.
Living in New Zealand I was exposed to a wide range of culture and diversity. During the nearly eight years I lived there I gained knowledge and experience in advertising, sales & marketing as well as property & finance. My family and I moved back to Abbotsford in 2005. It was later the next year when I began selling new home construction for E. Schmidt Construction in Auguston and more recently for DKT Homes at The Pines. I am committed to the growth and development of the city of Abbotsford. It is also my commitment to you that I grow and develop my business in an ethical and respectful manner.
Ask me about what we can do to reduce the carbon footprint of the average realtor!
