I’ve been involved in the Real Estate industry in a multitude of ways since I was young. The Zwick family owns one of the largest architectural model shops in the world, located right here in Vancouver. Having the opportunity to work there as a teenager, it allowed me to work with large, worldwide development firms including Trump, Intrawest, NBBJ, Stantec, etc. This began my interest in local development, so I started work for a predominant development company in Vancouver.
A desire to build my own business came about, so I ventured into Real Estate Marketing, and co-founded a magazine called The Real Estate Book. Through hard work, marketing & real estate knowledge and perseverance, the magazine became a success. After 5 years I decided to pursue a career in Real Estate so I could working with people on a daily basis and use my knowledge and skills to help people successfully buy and sell homes. Embracing my interest in photography, I like to take my own photos and make my own video tours so I can market your home to its fullest potential.
Right now, my family and I are happy residents of East Vancouver (a block from Main Street), and have been for years. I bought a Vancouver Special and fully renovated it with modern finishings. If you’re looking for a new home in East Van, want to take on a renovation project, or want to jump into the Real Estate market in the most vibrant part of town, give me a call. I’m happy to help.

I’m a true BC resident – born and raised on the Westcoast, I’ve settled in Vancouver and won’t be leaving the greatest city in the world. I’ve been helping other residents buy and sell homes in this vibrant city for years.
As a successful Vancouver Realtor, my passion and customer service, along with my marketing, neighbourhood and real estate knowledge have been my keys to success in this dynamic market place. My commitment to clients shows a level of service that will exceed your expectations and current industry standards.
I’ve also taken on many renovations in the pas few years – everything from small condos to completely gutting large townhouses. I’ve taken on renovation projects for myself, and also as the project coordinator for many clients. This gives me fantastic knowledge of the entire process: building systems, permits, design and more. I never shy away from a home that needs a little bit of work to become great!
In this ever changing market place, I’ve embraced the latest technology and marketing innovations, including high quality photos, video tours and social media. As a real estate professional, I am happy to adapt to and embrace new technologies and strategies that can help enhance your real estate experience. That means getting you more information, getting it to you faster and streamlining the process as much as possible to make the buying or selling process a pleasant one for you.

I was born in London, England, but have called Vancouver – and now East Van – home for years. After studying Business and Marketing at Langara, I decided to combine that knowledge with my love of Real Estate, and have been working hard ever since. I set myself apart with my up to date knowledge of the market, including new listings, recent sales and what every neighbourhood in the city has to offer. Tell me what you’re looking for and I will make sure you’re one of the first to know about it.
I strive to stay in-tune with today’s constantly changing technology and social media advances. I believe this is necessary to stay on top of the market if you’re a Buyer and successfully market your home if you’re a Seller. As a Vancouver Realtor, your satisfaction is most important, and I will ensure you experience a happy and successful real estate transaction.

I migrated to Vancouver from Edmonton in 1994 after spending countless summers as a child at Ambleside Beach, Stanley Park, Lynn Canyon and English Bay.

I pride myself on great communication with clients to ensure an open and honest relationship while we search for their new home. I like to stay organized so the buying or selling process is a smooth transition for my clients. I naturally gravitate to good design and I have an eye for detail, so I thrive on helping my clients create a warm space when selling their home, or a comfortable home for clients who move into a new space.
