Your Neighborhood Expert
I am a local Realtor living and working in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Originally from Montreal, I moved to Vancouver in search of a more temperate climate than Montreal had to offer. I have lived here since 1990 and I LOVE IT!
The Ocean, the Mountains and the mild temperatures make living here a dream. I admit that the heavy winter rains can make it seem a nightmare at times, but you get used to it. Personally I prefer an umbrella to shoveling the driveway or scraping the frost off of your windshield on freezing cold mornings.
Before Real Estate, My background was in the Hospitality Industry as Co-Owner of two successful restaurants in Quebec City, just two hours outside of Montreal. Although I loved the business, I was looking for a change and as I mentioned, I prefer rain to snow.
I have a passion for dogs as well, and the beautiful Dalmatian you see in the picture is Tasha, and her spotted coat gave me the idea for the name of my website. I had her for many, many wonderful years, but time runs more quickly for our canine companions, and she has since passed away. She enjoyed a great life playing in the cold waters of English Bay and was surrounded at the end by the people who loved and cared for her.
I was licensed as a salesperson in 1999 and immediately joined Re/Max and enjoyed a busy and productive career helping many satisfied clients find or sell thier "spots". My sales achievements have been recognized over the years with memberships in The Medallion Club of The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver, as well as the Re/Max 100% Club, Executive Club, and RE/MAX Hall of Fame.
In 2006 I continued my Real Estate education and enrolled in the Broker's Licensing Course at the University of British Columbia, and am now licensed at the Broker's level. In addition, I have earned my Certified Luxury Home Marketing and International Real Estate Specialist designations so that I can continue to my clients who are looking for help in these specialized areas of real estate.
Since beginning in Real Estate, I have helped many satisfied clients and I would be happy to help you as well.
