1. What made you choose a career in real estate?
Real Estate was a really easy career choice for me when I moved back home. Being apart of one of the single largest transaction someone will make in their lifetime is not only important but one of greatest ways to serve the public sphere. As a kid, one of my favourite things to do was walk through show homes with my parents. It doesn't feel like work to me. "Chose a career you enjoy and you'll never work a day in your life"
2. What’s the most rewarding part of the job for you?
Showing a home to a client and going through ideas of interior design and potential renovation! Literally, the BEST!!
3. Who are your role models – personally and professionally?
My Mom and Dad, Jim Rohn, Napoleon Hill, Oprah and my Sister!! Those Six all for varying reasons.
Professionally, my mom and dad have owned businesses in their life and are the definition of what it means to do right by others and obligations, be true to you word and go the extra mile.
Personally, my sister because I've never known a more kind, selfless and understanding human being in my life, ever!
4. What keeps you busy away from real estate?
Family, friends, table tennis, volleyball, poker, yoga, the spa, meditation, animals!!
5. Who or what motivates you?
My family is what motivates me! Plain and simple.
6. Describe yourself in 3 words.
Intense, Fun, Loyal
7. What’s the most challenging aspect of your career?
Honestly; I would say the most challenging aspect of being a Realtor is trying to get to the bottom of what a client actually wants. When you really start digging and ask deep questions about someones wants and needs in a home... you realize, not everyone knows what they want. Life generally happens in the fours where we reside, so assisting someone explore what they want out of their life can be challenging but is also hugely rewarding! So the "challenge" can also be the most rewarding part of my career!
8. What’s your favourite spot in Calgary?
I've been a vegetarian since 2013 for a personal reason (ask me about it if you want... it might not be why you think). So my favorite spot in Calgary is The Coup on 17th ave. The food there is so creative and so so so delicious!!!!
9. What’s the best part about being a Calgarian?
I'm a rare breed... I'm a 4th generation Calgarian; so the best part of being a Calgarian is everything!! Alas, if I had to chose only one thing, I would say the best thing about Calgary is our distinct weather and season changes. I love it!! We get the best of the world in one city! The death and rebirth of nature is an amazing thing to experience and never gets old. What a wonderful metaphor for existing in this world, Calgary weather is a constant reminder to appreciate the seasons of life. PS. My favorite season is the changes between them.
10. What’s the best part about the Western Elite Real Estate Group?
The "team atmosphere" is definitely the best part of WE!! It's having a cheer squad behind all of our successes and support when things aren't going perfect. We take the strengths of each other and it helps us translate that our clients for the absolute best experience; whether it's a simple transaction or a really complex real estate transaction. As the saying goes, 5 brains are better than one and there's nothing better than a 5 part harmony. Because I'm really humble... "WE" are awsome!! lol
