I've lived in the Kootenays for 39 years, and in the Creston area for 15 of those years. During that time, I have always served the public. As past President of Creston GoGo Grannies - a fundraising group for the Stephen Lewis Foundation, assisting children in Africa who have been orphaned by the HIV virus. I was able to enjoy the teamwork and comraderie of all involved in this worthwhile cause. I have also worked with seniors for the past 25 years in the capacity of caregiver and more recently as advocate, which I continue to do on a volunteer level. As a member of the RE/MAX team I offer you Real Estate trading services and Property Management Services, both of which you will find helpful when purchasing and listing your property with me. I am known for my straight forward, no nonsense approach to the Real Estate Services I offer.
I know the properties here, and have a deep pride of ownership in my own home. Now I want to take these qualities into the active market. I want to ask you for your trust and confidence in important real estate matters.

Having moved many times throughout my life, I know just how stressful things can get. My wife Diane and I chose Creston for the size and location of this community, community spirit, quality of life, ideal place to raise a family and abundant recreational opportunities. Volunteering as Deputy Chief of the Canyon-Lister Fire Department and as a youth soccer coach are just some of the ways I've become involved in the community. My goal is to help make the entire process of buying and selling as stress-free as possible by clearly communicating with you everything you need to know concerning the transaction. I will help identify potential issues so they can be dealt with before they become problems. I will do everything I can to make sure that the transaction happens smoothly with no surprises. I want to make sure that you walk into your new home with a smile on your face!
My Services: No matter if you are looking for: - your first home; - a home for your expanding family; - a recreational (second) home; - a home for your retirement; - a home for your business; I can help you find the property you are looking for.
As a daughter of a contractor, my passion for real estate started at a young age. After studying Interior Decorating, that passion turned into a career in 2004. My early real estate experience ranges from selling pre-sale homes for a Vancouver project marketing company to working as a licensed assistant to one of the city's top Realtors. In 2007, my husband and I decided to get back to our childhood roots of small town living, and chose the Creston Valley as our new home. We purchased a local B&B, left the Big City behind, and as I like to say "The rest is history". Moving to a new town and a market I was not familiar with, I continued working in real estate as a licensed assistant to a local realtor. While I was gaining valuable experience in the local market, 2009 marked the year I decided to take what turned into a 7-year break devoting my time to my growing family and operating what by then was turning into one of Creston Valley's top rated B&Bs. After years of helping guests at the B&B fall in love with all our valley has to offer, returning to real estate in 2016 is an absolute joy for me. This is what I love to do, and what better place to do it in.
Between the Tourism and Real Estate industries I offer you almost 20 years of customer service experience and unique insight. Whether you are wanting to relocate to the Creston Valley or are a current resident ready for a change, if you are looking for the highest level of customer service, someone who puts your individual needs first and strives to make the experience of buying or selling a home a positive one, "I'm your Realtor. Welcome home."
My husband and I found this beautiful valley in 2011 when we were looking for a place to escape the long and cold Northern Alberta winters. We instantly fell in love with the warm and welcoming community and all the bounty this valley has to offer, from fruit trees and vegetables to a myriad of flowers, artists, outdoor recreation and much more. We have 2 grown daughters who also moved to BC and I hope one day they will join us in Creston. Should you also wish to re-located to this paradise, I will do my best to make buying a home a painless and pleasant experience for you.
I worked for 21 years as an ecologist for a forest company in Northern Alberta and it taught me skills in negotiations, being prepared and knowledgeable, attention to details and thoroughness. All these skills can be used in the real estate business and I will employ them with great energy helping you selling or buying a home. I am a member of the Canadian Real Estate Association, BC Real Estate Association and the Kootenay Real Estate Board. I promise to pursue your dreams with passion and professionalism to a successful conclusion. I can also speak German with you if you prefer. Ich kann auch mit Ihnen Deutsch sprechen wenn Sie das vorziehen.
