My interest in real estate started at a young age with my father Steve being in the business since i was only 4 years old. Listening to and understanding the ins and outs of the business when i was growing up peaked my interest and i knew one day i would be a Realtor myself.
Out of high school i went straight to college to get my Business Administration diploma from Kwantlen College. Then after a year of travelling the world i decided to get a real job.
My time with HSBC was valuable in gaining a banking background. Working there for just over 5 years I managed a portfolio of clients doing everything from opening accounts for new customers, to setting up loans, mortgages, lines of credit, also taking my Canadian Securities course so that i could advise on investments, mutual funds and savings. This experience now allows me to assist you with real estate budgeting, discussing mortgage trends, or other finance related questions.
Realizing this wasn't the career for me i then took my real estate exam in 2010 and passed with flying colours. Actually i even beat my father's score which is always something to brag about.
Living and working in White Rock my entire life, it was a no brainer to join RE/MAX Colonial to be beside my father / mentor and I have never looked back. Joining him and being able to hit the ground running right away with his portfolio of satisfied clients really helped in my very fast development over the years as a competant realtor myself. Now both of us are working hard and forever "going that extra mile" for each and every one of our clients. Referrals are the framework of our business so we strive to be the best we can on every purchase and sale so that everyone walks away happy, in turn passing along the good word about the Merkals.
