Welcome to my website

With so many new Realtors® in the industry today, buyers and sellers of property feel helpless in knowing who to chose to represent them. That's where I come in! Your Real Estate Referral Expert.

As a long time licensed real estate professional I am truly enthusiastic about being involved in either having your property sold or if you are a buyer of a property being involved in finding the right home for you.

My philosophy: Have your home sell for the highest possible price in the shortest period of time and have the happiest customers in the industry.

Acquiring a home is the largest financial transaction most people will make in their lives. My job is to help guide you through this difficult and often stressful decision.

Operating my Real Estate Referral Business

Hope, Harrison Hot Springs, Agassiz, Chilliwack, Abbotsford, Mission, Victoria, Central Vancouver Island, and Kamloops are markets I am concentrating on. I have many connections in the Real Estate industry such as Realtor® colleagues, lawyers, accountants, government employees etc. I have many happy and satisfied past and present clients. As a Real Estate Referral expert, as a buyer/seller of property you will get in touch with me if you live in any of the aforementioned areas. I will then refer you to a trustworthy, talented, hard working and passionate real estate agent from your home area.

The Realtor® I will recommend to work with you will have been meticulously matched by myself to you, the buyer/seller. He/she will have integrity, professionalism, friendliness, sympathetic character and last but not least a proven performance ability of selling homes or finding property for buyers. The real estate agent I will recommend to work with you would have a character which is compatible with you, the client's/principal's character. The ability of the chosen Realtor® to communicate with you is of utmost importance. Eventually I will arrange an interview date between you and the real estate agent I have chosen for you. If, in the rare occurrence the match is not suitable, I will re-evaluate the relationship and recommend a second choice. If you would prefer at this time to choose your own realtor,you are free to do so. There is never any cost to you for my services.

Professional background

I graduated in Munich/Germany with an engineering degree in cellulose chemistry. I worked in Germany, Switzerland and Canada in the pulp and paper industry as a Process Engineer and in Research and Development.

In 1979 I obtained my real estate license, and later I acquired the Managing Broker designation at UBC. I lived in and sold homes in Kamloops and Victoria before moving to beautiful Harrison Hot Springs in the Fraser Valley in 2016.

My mission is to have happy clients who will enthusiastically refer me to their family and friends for all their real estate needs.
