A seasoned Real Estate professional with more than 35 years of experience in real estate brokerage, executive management, start ups, residential/commercial property sales and rental/strata property management.
A Certified Professional Residential Property Manager (C.P.R.P.M.), Registered Condominium Manager (R.C.M.) and licensed through the Real Estate Council of B.C. for Strata Property Management, Rental Property Management, Trading Services (Sales) as well as holding a Managing Broker designation to oversee other licensees.
Professional working life commenced as a radio broadcaster and news reporter with various radio and television stations across B.C., including CKLG-FM Vancouver, CKOK Penticton, CHNL Kamloops, CFJC Kamloops and CFUN Vancouver.
A career change after 8 years on-air transformed into qualification as a licensed Insurance Broker/Nominee for insurance sales, including commercial, homeowner, life and auto insurance. A competitor's insurance brokerage specialized in strata property; however it also provided strata property management services through a subsidiary company. Strata property management seemed to be a new and emerging industry in the mid 70's and it seemed to be a natural transition to leave insurance and enter into the business of managing strata title multi-family residential property which has been a main focus over the majority of my working years.
Acquisition of significant knowledge and experience in building construction and building repair/maintenance through the management industry resulted in a short term contract to assist long-term friends with the rapid growth and re-structuring their building envelope restoration business. The short term mandate has now extended past four years and most recently with me serving as CEO for the company. Columbus Construction & Restoration Ltd. provides services to multi-family residential building owners, commercial property owners and the professional property management industry.
