Kevin founded www.sweethomevictoria.com in 2008 and developed this further into the Sweet Home Victoria Real Estate Team in 2013. The name is reflective of Kevin's passion for the vibrant coastal city. "Victoria is the only city I have ever fallen in love with! I came here for a one month vacation in 2003 and couldn't leave." Kevin blogs about his passion for Victoria in his "I Love Victoria" blog and also maintains a fan site on Facebook, www.facebook.com/welovevictoria. Kevin brings a strong professional background to the real estate industry. For 13 years before entering realty, Kevin worked as a respiratory therapist and anesthetic assistant at BC Children's Hospital. His years in critical care have provided him with excellent ethics, impeccable documenting skills, and the ability to maintain a calm demeanor in the most stressful situations. "I've been taking care of people for most of my adult life. Now I take care of them in real estate, instead of in the hospital." Kevin has a strong work ethic and realizes that each property sale is different. Some properties will sell quickly and others will take more time. Presentation and marketing require a lot of attention to detail and he ensures the team's sweet homes always look their best. Time is of the essence in all aspect of the real estate business and his clients can rest assured that all calls, emails, and queries from his clients, other agents, and members of the public will be attended to as quickly as possible.
