Throughout my 9+ years as a REALTOR® selling homes across Metro Vancouver, I have had the privilage to help many families and individuals buy and sell property, whether they were first time home buyers, seasoned investors or growing families needing more room.

Meeting new clients is always exciting, whether they are referred to me from past clients, trusted professionals, friends and family or expired listings that failed to sell with a previous agent. Every individual is different and requires a tailored approach. It is important to me that the client feels completely comfortable and confident in the process as well as my ability to get the job done.

As a result of my amazing past and current clients putting their trust in me, I have received several awards for sales performance, including the Sutton Platinum Award and several Medallion Club Team Awards (2012, 2013, 2017, 2018 for top 10% of all REALTORS® in the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver).

In 2017, we averaged selling for 106.5% of our list price. In 2018, my clients averaged 101.2%.

Working with those clients needing to sell or buy their home or investment property is a responsibility I take seriously, as they are literally handing me the keys to get the job done. My mother and father who both came to Metro Vancouver in 1981 from Singapore, had taught me the importance of trust, and treating everybody with respect. I see it as not only my business, but my mission to uphold that standard everyday.

Putting deals together always came natural to me. At the age of 8, I was collecting print advertisements from local car dealerships, cutting out vehicles that were interesting and would paste them in a scrap book. Weekly, I would watch the prices, and which cars would sell. That stemmed into buying my own cars, and selling them when it was time to upgrade. The hunt for the right buyer, through internet advertising, car lots and word of mouth, was an excitment that captured me. In 2007, I joined one of Canada's largest telecommunications companies, in sales. Having a limited capability to fully serve customers, and exercise creativity, I sought a career elsewhere. In 2010, I became a licensed REALTOR®.

Living in here in British Columbia, one of the most beautiful places on earth, is something I never take for granted. Whenever possible, you will find my wife and I touring wineries in the Okanagan, experiencing some of the best wine produced in Canada. In 2016, my interest in wine lead me achieve the WSET (Wine and Spirits Education Trust) Level II Award.

Since January of 2014, I have been with TRG - The Residential Group Realty based out of Kitsilano in Vancouver, serving clients as far east as Langley and south as Tsawwassen. It is a boutique brokerage where we pride ourselves on honesty, service and commitment.

Get in touch if you are wanting to discuss buying or selling a home or investment property, or have any questions for me that I can assist with.
