I’m originally from Kelowna, but I was a golf professional at the time in Southern California when I decided to move to Whistler. Big Sky Golf and Country Club opened and I brought my golf schools there and was their head instructor.
I got into real estate 36 years ago, before becoming a golf professional for a number of years, then got back into the real estate business 15 years ago here in Whistler.
It’s very relaxed. Whistler is a small community but is very vibrant and healthy with incredibly positive minded people.
I would tell them to review their lifestyle requirements and if Whistler and the surrounding area fit with that then there’s no better place in the world to be.
It’s important to be very realistic and knowledgeable about what’s going on in the market. You must also be clear in your own mind about what your expectations are about selling your property.
Always the people. Helping them find the ideal home for themselves and their families, along with helping those who want to sell, whether they’re leaving the area or moving up or down in the market.
I look at our job as being here to assist people with the knowledge we have and expertise.
They’re all pretty special because there is always something to do in each one. For me, I love winter, but golf is a summer sport and that’s my sport so I would have to say summer.
Just watching people walk into their new homes and realize that they’re actually going to be a part of Whistler.
I spend a lot of time with my golden retriever, I go for walks and hikes and just being with him is my decompression.
There’s no better place than Whistler and Pemberton to raise a family. I travel extensively throughout the year and there’s nothing better than coming home.
I would have to say my children.
Because they have realised how important their lifestyle is and how short life is, so they might as well enjoy it!
