4. We care about you.

My team and I are experts in commercial real estate as well as Business transactions. I bring more than 25 years of sales related experience to the table. My expertise encompasses many fields over several industries. As I have owned businesses, managed businesses, and been on both sides of franchising. I work in the development, commercial and construction industry.

As a board member of the Downtown Kelowna Association I advocate on behalf of downtown business owners and landlords. Strong leadership and the ability to negotiate successfully for others have earned my title as “The Dealmaker.” I want to positively impact the community. Helping business owners overcome obstacles and show growth is something I do for a living, day in and day out.

I am also the board president of the Okanagan Entrepreneurs Organization, the world’s leading peer-to-peer network of successful business owners. For entrepreneurs and founders of businesses making more than US$1 million in annual revenue, there is no better opportunity to learn and grow than the one that is provided to you through membership in EO. https://www.eonetwork.org/
