Hello! If you are looking for a qualified, knowledgeable Realtor with a proven track record in Sales, then I am your guy!
Raised in a small town, I learned the values of community involvement and treating people with respect. After High School, I pursued an interest in Culinary Arts, and achieved my Red Seal in Cooking. After a few years of working in the industry, my wife and I started our own restaurant in Maidstone, SK. Together, we operated this business for almost 5 years, and lived in the community for 12. We now reside in Lloydminster, and have three active children that make for a very busy household.
In 2005, I started my Real Estate Career, and I believe that 10 years of work and operating my own business gave me the jumpstart to a well rounded business. I have grown my business every year through competent advice, quality service, and the ability to achieve results in your Real Estate Transaction. Give me a call and we’ll be on the road to your next home!
