Ben_Headshot_2015_WEBsmallBen pretty much epitomizes Kits living and, after spending the last 13 years in the neighbourhood, he can’t imagine calling anywhere else home. His favourite part of living in Kitsilano is leaving his car at home. The regular circuit of Market Meats, New Apple Farms, Whole Foods and Kitsilano Wine Cellar with everyone on a first name basis is something he just can’t give up. Morning coffee at Viva Cafe and a stroll along Kits beach is also a daily must.

As a Realtor, he is passionate about what he does and brings a wealth of experience to the table. Ben has extensive knowledge of most buildings in Kits and has the added insight of doing several renovation projects in the neighbourhood. He also has a bit of a technology affliction and will do everything he can to bring the latest and greatest into the real estate world to get you up to date info and simplify the buying and selling process.

Ben is one of the leading experts in Kitsilano real estate, with a proven track record and impeccable sales history. With a keen eye for value in the market place and the unique ability to market homes to their fullest potential, you are in good hands.

Having worked with Ben and Rob for years, I’ve learned all things Real Estate from the best of the best. Focusing my attention on vibrant Kitsilano, I know the ins and outs of each neighbourhood, and am happy to help Buyers find their first home or move up to something that works for their growing family.

As a Realtor, my job is to do whatever it takes to make the buying and selling process run smoothly, including arranging property viewings and Buyer’s tours, providing professional real estate advice on the neighbourhood, building and market and ensuring that you’re as comfortable as possible. I also handle the business administration, marketing, social media and website content for our team so I strive to stay on top of the latest technologies to market your home to its fullest potential.

From the University of Waterloo, I earned a Bachelor of Mathematics in Combinatorics and Optimization, focusing on theories regarding optimization and logistics. These theoretical concepts carry great practical application in the real estate world when it comes to pricing strategies and market statistics.

My biggest passions are homes and design, and along with my market knowledge, I will help you find and embrace your perfect Vancouver home.
