Real Estate Agent - One Percent Realty Ltd
The outside of your house is just as important as the inside....if not more important!  The curb appeal of your house can give buyers motivation to get out of the car to look inside or keep on driving!  Additionally, the comfort of the backyard can help "seal the deal".  If buyers can picture the...
I have absolutely no fashion sense.  When I became a real estate agent, I knew my appearance would be a challenge.  It is a professional, optics driven business.  While I have the professional part down pat, the optics part is more of an issue.  I prefer comfort over discomfort, fleece over non-f...

Pacific Spirit Regional Park One of my favourite places to visit in Vancouver is Pacific Spirit Regional Park. The park is on the west side of Vancouver (UBC / Point Grey neighbourhoods) and is over 54 km of walking/hiking/mountain biking trails.  I take my dog there often and we walk amongst the...
I love living in this city!  It is gorgeous....and fun....and full of interesting people, places and things.  In my wanderings as a resident (and as a real estate agent), I am constantly stumbling across people, places and things that make me exclaim, "Wow!!!  This is soooo fabulous!!"  My blogs ...
