What can I say in a biography that is designed to encourage you to select me as their Realtor? What best shows how I can help you to buy or sell your most valuable financial asset? What's most important and believable? How about if I will tell you what I’ve done, my proudest achievements, what has been said about me, and how I see my service.
I’ve always done well at what I've taken on—earning academic scholarships throughout school and university, winning athletic awards including a university hockey scholarship; and being recognized within my career--one of Alberta’s best school superintendents and Century 21 Canada every year after year one.
As a teacher I’m proud that my students liked me, and my fellow teachers accepted my leadership as vice-principal, principal, deputy superintendent, and superintendent. I still can’t shake the teacher label--I'm often "Mr. Boddy" to many Realtor colleagues. I hope that means I'm seen as a fair and trustworthy. But pride in a job or reputation is not the same as family pride and that’s first for me. I’ve been married to Joanne, my college sweetheart, since 1970. She still finds me “interesting.” We have two children, both adults and both doing well. Jodi is a university professor and Cory is an investment portfolio manager. Today our proudest accomplishment is our little granddaughter and slightly younger grandson. And we’re expecting again—well not us but our family.
So what do my customers say about me? “Extraordinary Services!” “Best *@<# realtor I have ever had.” “Hard Work!” “I work with realtors across the US and Canada, and it is a real joy to see someone offer exemplary service in a kind, personal way.”
My goal is simple; I want my clients to find me professional, competent, caring, and oh yes, “interesting.” May I help you?
Served as Justice of the Peace--not the marrying kind but the "Get out of Jail or go to Jail" kind. I did this in Fox Creek and Provost. the system is changed now, they do it all by phone.
Was a member of Lions clubs in Sangudo, Provost, and Red Deer. In Red Deer I served as club president and was Lion of the Year. Now my time is taken up in individual pursuits like exercise, reading, politics, family.
Joanne and I have lived in numerous small towns in Northern and East Central Alberta--Spruce Grove, Valleyview, Fox Creek, Rochefort Bridge, Sanguado, and Provost. We have also lived in Edmonton and dropped in for numerous summers at Eugene, Oregon and Spokane, Washinton. While we didn't live as a couple in Saskatoon, we met there and had a great time. Joanne grew up in Saskatchewan attending school in Buchanan and Yorkton. I spent my childhood in Ponoka and never really wanted to leave. But I did. In 1995. we moved to Red Deer. I've forgiven Red Deer for being so good at the sports I played--hockey, swimming, baseball, football--and really enjoy it now.
Played hockey for various teams in Ponoka before leaving for the University of Calgary Dinosaurs, 1966-67, Saskatoon Macs 1967-68, Spruce Grove Mercury's 1970-71, Enoch Tomahawks 1971-73, Valleyview Jets 1973-76, Fox Creek 1977-80. Provost Old Timers 1984-95. Played football in high school and was a league all-star as offensive and defensive half-back in 1965. Swam competively as a youngster in Ponoka.
Coached hockey for my children in Sanguado and Provost. It was fun and I could help a few players. Several went on to play in the Western Hockey League. But our children didn't have the same passion and that was okay. Our daughter quit hockey after Mites, and my son after Bantams. Our son left for a sport I didn't play. He needed some space and he excelled as a curler and is still doing so. It all works out!
Nowadays, our highlights are our families. Jodi is in Vancouver. Cory is in Edmonton. Both have young families. Grandma loves garage sales and other boying opportunites for her grandchildren. We both live Rebels hockey games. While I usually cheer for the Rebels, sometimes I remember playing the BIG BAD CITY as a youngster from Ponoka. Ouch! And I enjoy lane swimming in the winter and riding my bicycle in the summer.
Did I mention that I was raised to be a farmer. In the end, my father said no but I had a farm in Sangudo--briefly. Darn!
