After spending 12 years in the Hospitality Industry, I wanted a rewarding career working with people achieving their goals- whether finding the home of their dreams or an investment property.
2. What’s the most rewarding part of the job for you?
The most rewarding part of my job is successfully guiding clients through the process of buying and selling their home. The purchase or sale of a home is one of the biggest assets a person will have. This can be an overwhelming process and I take pride in making that as stress-free and profitable as possible.
3. Who are your role models – personally and professionally?
A personal role model for me is my wife; after graduating University she took on the challenge of starting her own business, which she has turned into a very successful and respected operation. She is the one who motivates me to do my very best every day. A professional role model of mine is the late Pat Tillman, who is a great example of dedication and selflessness. Another role model is Elon Musk for his technological advances and success in the business world.s have been helped me to shape the life I aspire to live.
4. What keeps you busy away from real estate?
Our 4-year-old Shorkie ( Shih-Tzu Yorkie cross) Miley gets a lot of my attention, you can usually find us out for a walk in our community or down in Fish Creek Park. In the summer you can often find me trying to get that perfect swing on the links, maybe I should spend more time on the putting green!!
5. Who or what motivates you?
My family is what motivates me most of all, from the start of the day till the end. As well as my amazing clients, I wouldn’t have a career if it wasn’t for them!
6. Describe yourself in 3 words.
7. What’s the most challenging aspect of your career?
That every day is completely different, as well as the ups and downs that come with Real Estate. Makes this career both challenging and rewarding
8. What’s your favourite spot in Calgary?
I love going for walks in Fish Creek Park, its a unique place to go into the wilderness right in the middle of the city. I also really enjoy going to the Zoo with my niece and nephews.
9. What’s the best part about being a Calgarian?
Being a born and raised Calgarian, I can say we have some of the friendliest most forward-thinking people in our country- not everywhere can you engage in a conversation walking down the street. I also enjoy the 10 amazing days in July where I can dust off the boots and hat.
10. What’s the best part about the Tonkinson Team?
The best part about working with the Tonkinson Team is working with people who share the same morals and values as I do. Everyone's attention to details and enthusiasm are contagious and addicting to be around. I couldn’t ask for a better team of people to work with.
