You'll fall in love with this elegant 4bd/3ba character home the moment you step inside. Standing in the entrance, you'll be charmed by the heritage details including high beamed ceilings, moldings, wainscoting & a built-in bench in the foyer. The bright living room continues to impress w/leaded glass & decorative detail & a special, working tiled fireplace for cozy evenings. Walk through to the former dining room, now den, & appreciate another fp, more leaded glass, a built-in sideboard & floor to ceiling shelving. The dining room off the kitchen speaks of possibilities of being opened up to create a larger kitchen-the sunroom a possible eating area? Head upstairs to find 3 good-sized bdrms. Downstairs has another bedroom/study & family room plus unfinished workshop area. Lovely landscaped lot with private backyard and patio. The home is a 1909 gem, yet with new wiring, drainage and newer roof & HWT, you can simply move in & enjoy the charm

    Choosing to work with me as your Realtor® means working together in a relationship where trust, care, professionalism, and service are the starting point for buying or selling your home. 

    I always strive to cultivate a no-nonsense, no pressure, no worry approach to my work, aiming to create a smooth transaction for clients with a minimum of stress, and a providence of helpful information when needed.  I am collaborative by nature and pride myself on bringing people together to get the deal done.  Client interactions are about communication, friendliness, sincerity, and a commitment to exceeding your expectations of service in real estate, by handling every aspect of each transaction conscientiously and thoroughly.  Personal integrity is at the core of my dealings, as I remain active in my faith community and city for positive change.

    I grew up in Victoria, attended Camosun College and UVic, and enjoyed a successful career in the service industry with one of the country’s top hotel chains before coming to real estate.  Over time, I became a celebrated and awarded hospitality professional, being named “Best in the Pacific Northwest” by EAT Magazine’s judges at the 2010 Art of the Cocktail Challenge.   A number of other ventures into graphic design, new media and marketing, photography, public service, and even the music industry gave me a diverse and well-rounded skill set.  Shortly after my wife and I were married over a decade ago, we entered the real estate market, and as we sought opportunities there, I found myself amassing the knowledge and experience as buyer, seller, investor, renovation contractor, and landlord that would later inform my expertise as a real estate agent.  I pride myself on being a life-long learner, and always keep abreast of trade and market changes.  

    I live happily with my wife and three children in Fairfield, where we enjoy all that Victoria has to offer.  I love my hometown, and can’t wait to help get you a piece of it.
