I became a Realtor in the summer of 1995, having spent the previous fourteen years of my work life as an assembler on the line at General Motors - wow, what a switch!
It was the purchase of my first home in 1993 that caused me to change careers and become a Realtor. Since then, I've met literally thousands of people in various ways and guided hundreds of people who I've had the pleasure of representing in some aspect of their property transaction during a buy or sell. Today, the majority of my sales are from very satisfied past clients or their friends and relatives who know they can trust the advice they receive.
I live in Oshawa and own investment properties here as well. In the summer during my off time I like to golf, mountain bike, take on home renovations - and travel! For the past few years, the biggest buzz and source of excitement has been to race my go-kart at Mosport Kartways. To win at a sport like motor racing is the result of a focused effort in many disciplines, juggling many factors, and putting it all together on the track to reach the glory of the podium.
During the winter, I'm a big curling fan and play on a couple of teams at the Whitby Curling Club. Five years ago in a flash of inspiration I got back to playing recreational hockey thus ending a 30 year retirement after high school! It's great for fitness and an excellent way to contribute to the team dynamic. I play in both winter and summer leagues. So you see, I just can't get enough!
Competitive person you ask? Yes I am!
In 2016 I am in my 22nd year of full-time sales. I've seen many people come and go in this business, and I have seen the rise and fall of many fads and trends, the latest being the internet. Obviously this one tool has truly aided the consumer like no other and is here to stay. Technology and fancy apps aside, the bottom line is that you simply cannot beat having an experienced advocate with hundreds of transactions under his belt when it comes to handling the details and strategies of your transaction - why not let my twenty-two years of experience make the difference for you?
