MEET THE TEAM
I was born and raised in the small rural community of Falher, Ab, which is approximately 2 hours northeast of Grande Prairie. Growing up I often worked for the construction company my parents owned and operated, which led to an early introduction into construction. This is how I was first introduced to residential real estate, and these early work experiences have contributed immensely to my current career as a REALTOR®.
In 2004, I made the move to Grande Prairie to attend GPRC where I completed a business diploma. Immediately following, I completed correspondence courses through UBC in order to begin a career as a real estate appraiser. I then did real estate appraisal for 3 years at Biegel & Perra Appraisals where I was able to utilize and expand on my construction knowledge, as well as obtain a solid understanding of market values and trends.
I began selling real estate in 2009 and have not looked back since. Within the last 5 years, I have been able to substantiate myself as one of the top producing and leading realtors in Grande Prairie, as well as all of Alberta. I am proud of the fact that more than 80% of the homes I sell are the result of repeat clients and/or referrals.
Away from work, I am a proud husband and father and with my family, enjoy staying active and involved in the community. If you are in need of a Realtor, you can count on me to protect your investment and to guide you through the process with dedication and professionalism.
