This August will be my 22nd anniversary of selling Real Estate! How exciting....! Its always interesting when people ask you what your area of expertise is? Its interesting how when you're passionate about something, something is close to your heart, or relevant to your own life experience - how easy it is to become an expert in that field or area!
I first began my Real Estate Career on The Sunshine Coast - in British Columbia.......Sechelt to be exact..........a beautiful seaside community, both rural and quaint, artsy and worldly all in one..........but primariliy a vacation home away from home location.......I've also worked in Sunshine Valley - in the mountains, next door to Manning Park Ski resort............so would that make me a recreational area home Expert? Possibly!.......:-)
I remember working in Langley almost 20 years ago when the first townhome complex EVER was being built in Walnut Grove - and we were wondering if it would take.......? I mean really - it was not the city core, primarily rural acreages...........Today you only have to drive through this phenomena of townhome development ..........hmmm I'm thinking it 'took'! For 11 years that was my specialty - 'townhomes' and 'apartments' an affordable, viable, lifestyle alternative to renting or owning higher maintenance homes.
Segway? Perfect ! Townhomes and condos became the perfect opportunity for first time buyers - or re-buyers - with the growth of single parent/ and single again parent families...empty nesters........paralleling my own personal life - this became the natural niche and a speciality. People I could identify with or that were close to my heart, people struggling with starting over, downscaling........or just overcoming hurdles...I could hold their hand - walk by their side and help them with their new beginnings.....
So when asked about specializing? At different times in my career there have been different areas that I've specialized it.......but really the bottom line is - People - I specialize in people - caring about listening to them, hearing where they're at, what their hopes and dreams are - and being a partner in helping them realize their goals... For This Chilliwack Realtor there is nothing more fulfilling then helping people find their homes, and helping them realize some of their dreams!
With over 23 years of Real Estate sales experience & a heart for our Immigrant and Newcomer community, my desire is to make your home buying experience Chilliwack and the Valley an awesome one!
