A: My family was living in Smithers, B.C. when we started getting the 7 year itch to move! At that point my brother and I were getting heavily into ski racing and wanted to be where the action was.
A: High school and ski racing.
A: I hung up the boards in 2005 after 9 years on the Canadian National Ski Team, spent a year and a half coaching at the local ski club and then started selling real estate in October 2007. Time flies!
A: I love the fact that we’re a small town with big city amenities.
A: Whistler is not an inexpensive place to buy. There’s a good chance people will need to make a few smart moves in the real estate market to get to their dream home.
A: I love figuring out how to work effectively with different individuals. Everyone seems to come at their purchase or sale from a different angle, depending on their occupation or personality.
A: Hard to say, they all have their advantages. A stormy winter is great for skiing. Spring is always welcome to defrost. Summers are amazing here. And fall means it’s time to do it all again.
A: An NFL quarterback! Watch out Russell Wilson!!!
A: My wife and two boys.
A: My ideal day would have to include a helicopter dropping me and some friends off at some amazing, steep terrain right after a 50cm dump of cold, light snow. Fast forward a decade or so and my boys would be with me.
A: I’m in the thick of it with a 1 and 4 year old! It’s absolutely amazing!
A: I’ve always been proud of my smooth transition from sport to business. It’s not easy to go from having one clear goal to reach throughout your childhood (sport) to being in an, often overwhelming, position where you can go in any direction you want. I was lucky enough to be able to lean on many friends and family members who helped me stay away from distractions and focus my energy in the right direction.
A: There is a work/life balance here like no other – that’s why the Hume’s have 4 generations living here!
