I grew up on a farm in Saskatchewan and moved to Vancouver Island in 1989. Boating and gardening are two of my passions – here I can enjoy both almost year ‘round.

I love real estate! I have renovated several homes and developed rural properties. Most recently I am “recycling” a house built in 1951. I am moving it from Oak Bay (in Victoria B.C.) to my acreage in Yellowpoint where I live with my partner Rob, my 17 year old daughter Sierra, and our black lab Bubba.

I have worked in the real estate industry for the past 17 years holding various positions. I began my career as a realtor and appraiser on Gabriola Island followed by lending and commercial property management and leasing. I hold the Appraisal Institute of Canada’s CRA designation and the RI designation from the Real Estate Institute of BC. I have a diploma in Urban Land Economics from UBC.

I missed selling real estate and was looking for an opportunity to work with a team. Deirdre and Marie sold my house in South Nanaimo and I was so impressed with their work ethic, knowledge and professionalism that I asked them if they wanted a partner and to my delight they did. I’m very excited to be a part of the team!
