It is sometimes helpful to know why someone chooses a certain profession. For me, I love what I do. Let me share some reasons why:

  • I enjoy helping other achieve the long-term financial benefits that come with owing a home or investing in income property. Right now might be the best time to buy.
  • I have an engineering background, I love the design of homes. I especially like to explore the potential of a property. Many people have trouble seeing the intrinsic value of a property.
  • I love meeting new people and forging lasting relationships. 
  • I like sharing the things I've learned with people on all aspects of the Real Estate industry.
  • I like connecting people to people through my networking.
  • I love learning; and there is always something new and surprising in real estate.
