Originally from the east coast of Canada, I moved west in 1996 to enjoy the mountain lifestyle. After a mountain bike trip to Whistler in 2002 with my partner Roland, I knew I had to live within the Sea to Sky Corridor where I could thoroughly take advantage of the Outdoor Recreation Capital of Canada. I recently purchased my first home in Squamish in 2007 and can therefore relate to the excitement and anxiety that often accompanies a home purchase.
Prior to becoming a Mortgage Professional, I was an assistant to one of the top producing real estate agents in Whistler. From this experience I have gained a vast understanding of the entire home buying process; from the minute one initially views a property to the day the keys are handed over, I ensured that every step was properly taken.
I also hold invaluable knowledge of the Canadian income tax system gained through years of working, studying and teaching under Canada's leading tax service company. Through preparing various types of income tax returns, I have acquired a special knack for making the complicated uncomplicated.
I know that finding the best interest rate is only one step in what can be a much larger and complicated process. I understand that open communication and efficient service are key to making the mortgage process enjoyable to all parties involved. Whether you are purchasing a home or investment property, refinancing or renewing your current mortgage or simply inquiring, I will ensure that you understand every step. I want to make this process as enjoyable and stress free as possible. It should be exciting and it can be!
Most importantly, I truly enjoy what I do. I firmly believe that purchasing a home should also be about strengthening your community. I know that a few dollars in the right hands can go a long way and this is so prevalent with local organizations and charities. Therefore, when your mortgage funds, I give back to a local organization or charity of your choice. So let’s begin strengthening your community together. Please do not hesitate to contact me and get started!
I am a proud member of the following organizations; Canadian Association of Accredited Mortgage Professionals (CAAMP), Mortgage Brokers Association of BC (MBABC) and the Squamish Chamber of Commerce. As well, I am also an active Big Sister through Big Brothers Big Sisters Sea to Sky, the XC Toonie Director for the Squamish Off-Road Cycling Association (SORCA), and the founder and race director for Hot On Your Heels, a women's only mountain bike race held in Squamish, BC.
