Community Involvement

I enjoy serving on the board of the Kamloops Street Rod Association, and the DQ Team is proud to sponsor KSRA's premier annual event, Chrome on the Grass.

As well, I and my family are active members, serving in the Greater Kamloops ATV Association.

Professional Interests

As a member of Kamloops & District Real Estate Association (KADREA), I am also a member of the BC Real Estate Association (BCREA).

Personal Background

I spent my childhood years in the Toronto area, moving to Vancouver Island for my highschool years, forging friendships that have endured for over 45 years. 

After a successful career in cooking, culminating as senior Chef at Barnaby's Roadhouse near Duncan, BC I left the restaurant industry in the early '80's and spent 20 years building a successful construction/renovation business, Smart Homes.

In the early 2000, I was forced to retire my construction business when my wife and I created the popular Eagle Lodge catering to the eco tourism industry in BC's Great Bear Rainforest. It was here that I met Doren Quinton who was pursuing his passion - salmon fishing - sparking the business relationship that would become the DQ Team. 

In 2012 Doren & I forged our industry expertise into the dynamic DQ Team.

Personal Interests

My passion for anything Mopar comes out quickly in conversation - especially when I pick clients up in my 1965 Barracuda. When I'm not tinkering under the hood, or attending car shows around the Okanagan, My family and I may be found exploring the back country on our ATVs most any fine weekend from late spring right up until the snow falls.

Professional Background

In 2010, I obtained my Real Estate license. In addition to owning several long term residential rental properties, I bring extensive building knowledge to the team.

As a CENTURY 21® Real Estate professional, I bring personal knowledge of the local Real Estate market combined with the power of the CENTURY 21 brand – the most recognized name in Real Estate today.

Education

I graduated from the Cowichan Senior Secondary School, obtaining my Real Estate Trading Services from Sauder School of Business at UBC. I have gone on to gain specialized training in, among other things, Multi Family Property Valuation and Selling Tenant Occupied Properties.
