Looking for an agent.png

Unmatched Local and International Knowledge

I’ve traveled the world for 35 years as a Hall of Fame snowboarder, professional photographer, filmmaker, entrepreneur and owner of the Camp of Champions. While traveling to almost every ski resort that matters, I compared their real estate values and offerings.  This lifetime of experience has given me a skill set, point of view and a depth of knowledge of the Sea To Sky market that is unmatched. I combine that with my 35 years of sales, marketing, social media, tech, photography and video experience to sell your property for as much as possible, as quickly as possible.  My goal is to work hard for you and over-deliver, while creating a transparent, enjoyable, stress-free experience for everyone. I’ll treat you with respect and listen to your needs while I keep you informed and involved every step of the way. Selling or buying, I’m looking forward to helping you with your real estate needs. Feel free to call me or email me anytime.

As your agent it's my job to achieve the maximum price for your property. To do that your home needs to have a memorable presence - in real life and on the web. A presence that creates an emotional connection with the buyer, so that it's YOUR home the buyer thinks of when they are deciding which house to buy. Sea to Sky home buyers come from all over the world so the first thing I do is create a custom website for your house. I create a digital open house. Everyone comparison shops houses online so I make yours stand out from the crowd. Below is what I create when you list with me.

Everything a buyer could want to know. in one place

I make it easy for the buyer to get stoked on your property. The custom website for your house is optimized for phone and tablet and contains everything a potential buyer could want to know - all in one place. Without having to phone or search and most importantly without getting distracted by another house, with one click they have everything they need to know.  This allows them the freedom to imagine and to discover instantly whether or not your house is "The One". Scroll down to see what a custom website I create for your house consists of.

Digital Open House - From any Phone, Tablet or Computer

Buyers can tour your house from anywhere using their phone, tablet or desktop.  Click anywhere on the photo below and use your mouse or touch pad to digitally walk through the property. There is no better way for a potential buyer to fall in love with your house than this. They can feel what it's like to inhabit their future home. Love this 4 bedroom home? Rent it on Airbnb.

The future is here and I use it to sell your house. As Sea to Sky home buyers come from all over the world, I use the awe inspiring Matterport 3D VR camera to create a virtual reality version of your house so buyers can roam through your entire house in virtual reality using VR goggles or Google Cardboard viewers.  It’s  a truly immersive, engaging experience that amazes everyone... and makes your house sell faster.

Interactive Floor Plans and Photo Gallery.png

You fell in love when you saw your house. It's why you bought it. To make it easy for the next owner of the house to fall in love with your house like you did, digital floor plans are created with linked hotspots to take you to a 360º photograph of that location in the house. Interactive digital floor plans are another way I showcase the design and specs of your house in a more interesting and engaging form to create for potential buyers the needed emotional connection with your house.

The Digital Open House isn't just about buyers being inside the house, it's about them discovering the street they will be living one after their purchase. The neighborhood sells the house as much as any other feature. I make it just as easy for potential buyers to fall in love with your street as I do for your house.

Tax and Strata.png

Part of potential buyers knowing whether you can afford your house or not is having access to all the tax and if in a strata, strata documents so they can see exactly what their costs will be as the homeowner.

Correct pricing is all about the stats. I do a complete in depth market analysis so that together we can price your house correctly and get it sold as quickly as possible. I also include the CMA on the website so that potential buyers can see how and why we priced the house as we did so they see the same things you did when you priced it. It makes for better negotiations on the final selling price. 

Not just the unusual.png

In addition to all the “unusual”  things I do to sell your house faster, I also do all the “usual” things a realtor does to promote and sell your house.

  • Ads in the Pique Newsmagazine, Whistler Homes, Squamish Homes,
  • Open Houses
  •  Social Media
  • Brochures etc.
  • I leave no promotional stone un-turned.

The whole idea behind bringing all these features into play on your property is to create the memorable home presence that creates that emotional connection that achieves a sale for the most amount in the shortest time. Give me a shout or drop me a line and let's discover how we can work together to sell your property.
