Helping you buy a home – not just a house.

Your Needs Are Important to Me

Before we look at homes, we will meet to discuss your homeownership goals and desires, preferred neighbourhoods, price range and timeline. I will help you prioritize which features are most important to you and your family, whether it is schools, parks, restaurants or overall lifestyle.  I will explain what you can expect during the entire home buying process, answer any of your questions and address your concerns about buying a home in Calgary.

Calgary Neighbourhood Expertise

When it comes to finding the right community, I will help you choose the area that is best suited for you and your family. Having lived and worked in Calgary and Okotoks my entire life, I truly know the neighbourhoods, features and amenities each area offers.


I have a wealth of knowledge which will educate you on all aspects of buying a home in Calgary. In addition,  I will guide you through the viewing process to show you features you may not have noticed plus issues you may not have spotted.

Expert Real Estate Negotiation

When the time comes to make an offer, I construct an offer to ensure you have the best possibility of the seller accepting your offer. In addition, I will explain the purpose for each of the clauses in the Offer to Purchase to include the best outcome for you in terms of payment arrangements and conditions. I have helped many buyers select their preferred options regarding closing dates and conditions that work best for them. I personally handle the dozens of transactional details and I will help you in your home transitioning process if you are upsizing or downsizing.

My Real Estate Network

Over the years, I have developed relationships with a large network of professionals who are experts in their fields and will be able to assist you with necessary services when buying a home in Calgary. From qualified home inspectors, mortgage appraisers, lawyers, cleaners, movers and more, my connections can help you through every step. I can also recommend trusted tradespeople so you can start receiving quotes for any renovations you may wish to carry out once you take possession of the home.

Stress Free Closing

I will guide you through the closing process. Whether it is arranging  visits to your new home for quotes or measurements, or just to remind you to make a lawyers appointment I check in with you on a regular basis to make sure everything is on track.

Dedicated Follow-up

Just because the boxes are unpacked my service does not end here. .Please know that I am still just a phone call or email away to help you with any questions, concerns, or outstanding issues you may have with your new property.
