Why trust the biggest purchase and investment of your life to working with me?

Because I am The Realtor That Works.

I love helping my clients sell or find new homes with as little stress as possible - and that means going the extra mile to help in any way I can. Throughout my nine years as a Realtor, you may have seen me painting the doors of my clients’ kitchen cabinets or jumping in to lend a hand moving furniture. I have a very strong work ethic and that translates into doing what I can for you! That’s why I’m The Realtor That Works and that’s why you can trust me with your buying or selling process.

I feel that my strongest value-added strength comes from the staging process I have developed for selling homes. I have a strong background and particular skill in home staging, thanks to my experience in the arts and design. Plus, I really enjoy it and have a certain affinity for it!

Step 1

I start off with a decluttering consultation to help you get sorted; I will even actively participate if you need me to! My downsizing clients tend to find this particularly helpful, as I assist with managing and facilitating the decluttering.

Step 2

As I previously mentioned, I then help out with all the little things that need to be done to sell the home, from small repairs, to painting, to moving furniture. I am happy to arrange for larger repairs as needed.

Step 3

Once we’re all set, I help with the staging. I tend to use the clients’ own furniture, edited and augmented with my own objects if needed, and I generally stage up to two bedrooms.

It’s really an enjoyable process for me and I love seeing how happy my clients are with our preparations for showing.

With my first-time homebuyers, I like to bring a sense of calm and patience to their buying process. Things are busy enough, so I like to help them through the whole procedure. I walk them through what it means to go on open house tours, what offers look like, what subjects mean, and how a sale is completed. And I am with them every step of the way throughout this process. Not only do I like to clearly and patiently explain everything, I help them manage their expectations. This effort helps reduce the stress of buying a home, especially when it’s so new and potentially overwhelming to first-time buyers.

Although I mainly work in and around Vancouver, I also love to work in White Rock, Richmond, and Coquitlam/Port Moody. I am particularly skilled at working with families at all levels of schooling, and I’m familiar with catchments for both English and French schools, specifically in Vancouver.

I have a superior team of professionals with whom I am affiliated, from house inspectors, to mortgage brokers, to notaries, to my long-time photographer, bOB Homer of Lethologica. I even work with downsizing professionals and have all kinds of professional colleagues to call on when we have additional tasks to manage.
