“With your market knowledge, I was happy to refer.”

August 18th, 2019

An appreciative thank you to my client Karen for her recent recommendation. Karen recommended me to a colleague earlier this summer. I’ve since sold Chris’s home — with multiple offers and for over asking — and look forward to continuing this new relationship.

Much of my business comes from personal referrals, from both long-term clients as well as those fairly new. Referrals are always appr ...

August 8th, 2019

Summer get-aways often include trips to our wonderful BC Islands. The Gulf Islands, Gabriola, Bowen, and even further north, to Hornby and Quadra. These idyllic islands invariably tempt at least of few of us to ponder the possibilities of our own island retreat. But purchasing may not be quite that simple. Following are some things to consider.* And many of these are applicable to a get-away ...

Sometimes homes featured online are so well executed, or unique enough to really jumpstart one's imagination. Every so often I like to post a few that have caught my attention. Here’s the latest batch. See links to previous posts in the series here.

Another fine example of one-level living. I particularly like the horizontal aspect of the living-dining-kitchen layout. More pics here.

“Optimistic but realistic. That’s what I value.”

April 17th, 2019

Much of my business is repeat clients. And many clients refer me to their friends, family and colleagues. I take immense satisfaction from these close, ongoing relationships. 

Thanks very much to my client Peter E. for these kind words. See my Recent Testimonials page for additional insight. 

“Robert has assisted me with the sale of a couple of properties. Robert provides guidance that's opt ...

Staging and prepping needn’t be overwhelming

April 2nd, 2019

This infographic is one of the best I've seen to help get your home ready to sell. It's logical and easy to follow, and goes a long way to minimize the stress associated with sales prep. One of my clients who followed this mentioned that she actually enjoyed the process. Not that she’d want to have to prep to move too often, mind you. 

And of course, if you'd rather leave the details to some ...

If you have small children or a newborn, you're already intimately familiar with just how much "stuff" can be generated — and how quickly it can become scattered about the house. While that's not normally an issue, de ...
