    My Perspective on Real Estate

    The built environment industry is one that excites me every day. With years of academic and work experience in this field, I feel very fortunate to say I love what I do.

    My interest in the built environment industry began at an early age. I was especially drawn to the business of real estate and the creative aspect of architectural design. To be an expert consultant in Real Estate, I have always believed that one requires experience within the entire scope of the Built Environment field. In order to represent an individual in the purchase or sale of land/buildings, the representative should be able to comprehend the conditions of the land and understand how building structures are assembled.
    A student of building design. A student of property development. A practitioner of building design. A practitioner of real estate development. A practitioner of real estate purchase and sales. I am very proud to say I embody all of these credentials.

    My intention is always to deliver expert service. Real estate is not a simple commodity exchange and should not be approached in such a way. To buy and sell real estate is life changing. My desire is to assist you, offer you my expertise and be part of your journey. All I ask is for you to put your trust in me and I will deliver!

    Proud to be Living the Okanagan Life

    I believe my family and I live in the most beautiful part of the world, the South Okanagan, BC, Canada. Everyday we wake up feeling blessed to live in a community of people who genuinely love where they live as much as we do. With incredible weather in the fall, spring and summer, and the serene landscapes of the Okanagan Valley year round, there is no better place to call home.

    I moved to the South Okanagan from Vancouver at the beginning of 2013. I had enjoyed what the South Okanagan had to offer part-time in 2012, and I made the decision to move permanently with the intent of pursuing love and happiness. My dreams were soon realized after finding my soul mate and wife, Zara, and shortly after, having our daughter Lilya Karma.

    It feels so rewarding to know that my family and I will grow and make our memories in the beautiful South Okanagan. We have so far made the most treasured friends and we look forward to making many more.

    For existing South Okanagan residents, I can not wait to meet you! For those of you interested in moving to the South Okanagan, please do not hesitate... I promise it will be worth it.
