Broker of Record
I unsuspectingly began my career in Real Estate at the age of 21 with purchase of my first student housing income property. This quickly grew into the management of multiple properties and inevitably the purchase of more properties in Waterloo Region and Centre Wellington. Possessing a strong mechanical background I graduated from Conestoga College in the Industrial Maintenance Mechanic/Millwright program. A Property Manager was born.
Less than 10 years later I decided (with the help of contributing factors) to obtain my license to practice the ‘clean side’ of Real Estate as a full time career. There were certainly some bumps and challenges along the way but staying the course was what I focused on. In 2008 I had the absolute pleasure of becoming partners with one of the industry’s most respected and successful Brokers, Glen Kelley.
Working for a large national franchise at the time, we began branding our marketing as Your Hometown Realtors. We felt our community minded hands on approach was better illustrated through this. We were right. Because of the support of our community and loyal clientele we were able to create Your Hometown Realty, a boutique Brokerage that services locally and markets globally.
Since beginning my journey in organized Real Estate, I have had the pleasure of serving on many committees and task forces, being a proud supporter and contributor to local events and organizations. I have had and continue to have a large presence within the Guelph and District Association of Realtors as well as our Provincial association, rising through the ranks and possessing the title of Past President. Sales awards are nice and certainly highlight successes in productivity however my most coveted awards are knowing I’ve done my best to improve as a person, improve where I live and improve my industry.
I look forward to what the next ten years hold and assisting any way I can
