Welcome to my world!! I have lived and worked as a REALTOR® in Parksville-Qualicum area since 2005, enjoying the fantastic location of Vancouver Island, Living in Coombs and working with clients buying and selling homes, I travel as far as Deep Bay to the North, and Ladysmith to the south, mostly in the 3 main centres of Parksville, Qualicum Beach and Nanaimo. I have been in sales since I was 16, and love finding "The Perfect Fit" for my clients, and I am happy that so many of my clients become friends, as well as referring me to their family and friends. Since I was always involved in sales all my life - "Selling refrigerators to the Eskimos" as my Dad would always say,- my other interests in life range from playing guitar and singing, sculpting masks and claywork in my studio, making "fun" jewellery, starting to travel a bit more with my husband and my dog, DD (that stands for Dales Dog, by the way) and just enjoying the wonderful life we live here on Vancouver Island.
I have enjoyed selling different products & services. In the 80's, I moved from Yorkton, Sask to Manitoba where I got my Realtor license. No one told me that 22 1/2% interest rates made a bad market, so I signed up with Block brothers in Garden City. Rookie of the Year and Top Sales for the Office started me down the road of Real Estate. In 1985, I moved to Vancouver, and worked as a sales manager for Polygon Properties> After selling the subdivision, I couldn't seem to get excited about the market (Wow, if I could go back to then!!) and worked in other sales jobs until moving to the Island in 1992. I started a cabin/campground park on 13 acres, and when that was sold, Real Estate called my name again in 2005. I joined Coast Realty and attained the Top 10 for 12 years, until it got taken over. I now have settled in with a smaller company of about 130 agents across BC. I feel this allows me the freedom of when and with who I would like to work with, and focus strongly on their needs until they are satisfied with their Real Estate experience. My slogan means a lot to me as that is the basis of how I work! - No Pressure, No Obligation, No Cost -. Information is power, so I do my best to give you all the information you need, so you can make the best decision for your family.
