Working in the real estate industry since 2003 including 2 years with Lasso CRM, the worlds' leading cloud based real estate marketing system for new residential developments, project sales teams and new home builders.
In 2005, I renewed my real estate focus as a licensed realtor in Greater Vancouver's residential market.
My Approach to Working as a Realtor
When you hire Bob, you get Bob - all the time. You do not get a team of inexperienced junior Realtors.
I do not care about being the number 1 Realtor and I don't give a hoot about breaking sales records. Why would I? This does nothing to help you.
When selling a listing, I do give a hoot about selling for the highest possible price and when buying I do care about buying for the best price. But I care most about getting the job done right for you. I'm an experienced negotiator and I'm very good at my job.
What I enjoy the most from my clients are the total looks of satisfaction I see on their faces and the referrals that I receive!
Before Real Estate
18 years sales and business mangement in the IT and computer industries including AT&T, Computerland, Everex Systems Inc where I acheived much success in managing fast growth companies in quick changing emerging markets. I reported into Silicon Valley, where as company officer, I learned how to work with and negotiate with Chinese buyers/sellers long before that ever mattered in the Vancouver real estate scene.
Early 20's Work Adventure
3 years working as a deep sea commercial diver on offshore oil rigs for Dome Petroleum, Can Dive Services in the Canadian Arctic, Beafort Sea on the Camar Explorers I, II and Explorer III and the Sir John A. MacDonald Icebreaker.
Happily married, one step teenager, love baseball, tennis, track & field. I live in Kitsilano and I am a Vancouver area resident since 1980.
I've met many interesting people and have made a lot of good friends through real estate. I'm very fortunate but that's what happens when a Realtor looks after their clients best interests.
I've travelled the world. Favourite city is Vancouver of course. Favourite countries are Canada, Italy, Nepal, Thailand.
