About the Van Isle Real Estate Team:
Our clients come first, we represent and support them through all stages of the sales, negotiation, legal and completion cycle.
Buyers can count on us to work with them to define their needs, walk them through the buying process, explain and prepare the required documents, research and show them properties that best suit their needs and then negotiate a price that works for them. Once we have handed them the keys to their new home we continue to be available to resolve any issues.
Sellers can be assured that when we list a property we will find and bring out the unique and key features of their homes and find buyers by using traditional and high tech tools. From feature ads and lawn signs to social media postings, we reach people directly and thousands more through our social media marketing on our websites and Facebook.
The West Coast has been my home all of my life including 35 years on Vancouver Island. I come to the table with my network of contacts and my years of experience in construction, proposal and contract writing, strategic planning and negotiation. My goal is to leave the communities where I live and work better than when I when I arrived, by participating in community service and sustainable economic development. I am an active Rotarian and Past President of the Ladysmith Club. I am a board member of the Ladysmith Maritime Society and one of the coordinators involved in the Ladysmith Maritime Festival.
Previously I worked in the field of Strategic Planning, Community Development and Organizational Learning and Training Systems. I am a past-president and board member of the Delta Chamber of Commerce and sat on several committees for the BC Chamber of Commerce. I earned my Master of Arts in Leadership and Training at Royal Roads University in 2004.
My wife Eileen and I have four adult children and four grandchildren. Aside from my family, my interests include photography, building things and boating. My way of winding down is getting out as much as possible on our sailboat.
