Do you know the story of Sylvester Stallone? He had next to nothing and created an endearing story of the underdog, better known as Rocky. The rest for Sylvester has been history.

I think everyone has a Rocky story, overcoming adversity, and accomplishing the remarkable in their own way. Buying and selling a home can be challenging, scary, and frustrating. Having a good agent can be the difference between having enjoyable success, or painstakingly stressful failure, or somewhere in mediocrity in-between.

I once thought that being a real estate agent was the equivalent of a used car salesman. This coming
from a guy who once worked his way through University as a janitor, I was inclined to pass on the first opportunity to have anything to do with the profession. As it turns out, some agents are remarkable at what they do, their tenure, experience, emotional maturity, work ethic, and attitude make them invaluable, and the people they serve love the results they get from their agent’s success. Thanks to a little luck and the influence of my peers in the business, this has been my experience.

Growing up in Oil Alberta, in a blue-collar family, I learned how to work on the site of a service rig. Luckily, for me and the oil industry, after five years I found myself back in school, where I was a bit more at home and ready to put in the work required to succeed academically.

Academics forced me to change my thinking from hours, position, and income, to learning. Learning turned into a love, and having thrived in two very different worlds, I learned that success comes from serving others, in whatever capacity, and an attitude of service is the earmark of human accomplishment.

I overheard a lecturer once say: “When a door opens, I walk through it, and hence I have experienced a wonderful life,” and it sums up the way I look at life. This takes guts! For the past several years, Real Estate has been in front of me, from academics, to commercial valuation, to residential negotiation. It provides me with a fulfilling career in which I can serve others and create value for my family. 

How I Liv

What would you do if you won the lottery?
I would spend some of my free time trying odd jobs! Maybe six months at a casino, and then a year as a development superintendent assistant so I could learn some basics of building my own home with my own hands.

Favorite Restaurant in the City?
Our family favourite is The Lingnan. The Peach Shrimp and Lemon Chicken Canton are amazing! It helps they do much of their menu Gluten Free as well as my partner is Celiac.

Do you like sports?
I'm an Oilers fan from childhood, and an Eskimos fan by association (my partner is a nut). I Dragon Boat in the summers (I imagine reading this is like a Jamaican telling his peers he is a bobsledder!).

Testimonials


Buying our first house brought lots of questions, anxiety and concerns. We tried looking ourselves, tried talking to few realtors, but it’s not until we met Don the dream house has been found and purchased. Stereotypical myths of typical realtors kept us away from fully working with one, until Don proved us wrong. Since day 1 to the day of possession and few days after, Don has been supporting us every step of the way – from every day’s viewings, step-by-step process to countless phone calls and questions that we had, Don responded to each single one, Sunday to Sunday. Being so professional he made process easy and enjoyable. His patience has no limit and for this and many more reasons, we’ve recommended Don to our family member, who has purchased a home at the same time. We truly appreciate all the help in this important purchase and definitely will be selling and buying with Don again!

Don was extremely accommodating of our "moving targets" wishes. He would listen for understanding, then proceed to offer options based on that. Our final decision was based on a unique perspective which he brought forward. We were very impressed with his knowledge and insights. He has been an easy, wise and smart realtor to work with.

My partner and I went into the house hunt unsure of what we wanted, which meant that we had to see a whole bunch places to figure it out. Don was great, patient, and always happy to show us what was available!
