consider myself lucky to have been born and raised in such a beautiful city as
Vancouver. I have traveled
the world extensively, and each time I return to Vancouver I realize that it is
truly one of the most amazing cities in the world to live. I
have a diverse background including marketing, sales and service, business administration,
project management and IT (information technology). This combination of skills
and experience enables me to service my clients in a unique and successful manner.
I am proud to be part of the Dexter Associates Realty team. Dexter Associates
Realty has been a strong force in the Vancouver Real Estate market since 1982.
Dexter is a unique company in the importance it puts on customer service and satisfaction.
Creating a sense of trust and loyalty with its clients is of utmost importance.

been honoured with being a member of the Medallion Club. The Real Estate Board
of Greater Vancouver recognizes the accomplishments of top producers every year
through the Medallion Club. These achievers are in the top 10% and excel in combined
MLS® listings & sales. For the past 4 years I have been ranked in the
top 1.5% of all Real Estate Agents in the Lower Mainland (approx.10,000) and I
have my clients to thank for this success, as they continue to trust me with referring
friends & family to me. I was also ranked this past year as the top 3 at Dexter
Realty (out of 130 Real Estate Agents)
am also passionate about heritage homes. My first renovation project was a 1910
craftsman styled home, then followed by a grand 1907 Edwardian house. I love to
pass on my experiences with tradespeople, as well as my varied resources and tips
on doing such a renovation project. One of my my favourite parts of Real Estate
is matching up a heritage home with the right new owner who will continue on conserving
Vancouver's history. Dozens of my clients have bought, restored and conserved
heritage homes all over Vancouver.

I have extensive experience in marketing, communication, teaching and human resources;

Growing up in Europe

about cultures and customs, to be humble when not at home, to seek out alternative
solutions and to rely on my intuitive ability. All great skills I use when negotiating
for my clients.
Along with my proven negotiating skills, I offer my clients
the most updated information as I am committed to investing my time in attending
professional courses and training on a regular basis. These courses include all
facets of real estate, including Contract Law, Strata Property Act, Land Title
Act and many others. Attending weekly information sessions offered through Dexter
