create and prioritize your list.

1. Anything that squeaks or creaks.

Is there something in your home that makes a noise it shouldn’t be
making? Perhaps it’s a rattling closet door or a creaking floor board?
You may be so used to it you no longer notice the sound. But buyers

are unsightly will likely get buyers’ attention. You want them to focus
on the terrific features of your property, not the scuff on the wall.

Take a walk through your property, including the yard. Pretend you’re
the buyer. Do you notice anything that doesn’t look good? If...

Huge CONGRATS to my RE/MAX Westcoast office for being awarded the #1 RE/MAX office in the WORLD for sales volume in 2016! Thanks to Richard, Cory & Allison for being the BEST managing brokers! 


I started my real estate career about 4.5 years ago with another brokerage. As a new agent, I was feeling a bit lost and wasn't getting the support I needed to help grow my business until an opportunity arose with RE/MAX a few months later. After switching, I noticed a difference as I received training and guidance from other RE/MAX agents. I feel so fortunate to be part of such as reputable brand and thankful that I was welcomed in as part of their family!

While home sales are not happening at the pace we experienced last year, home seller supply is still struggling to keep up with today’s demand - this is the lowest number of new listings registered in February since 2003. This is why we’ve seen little downward pressure on home prices, particularly in the condominium and townhome markets

Please let me know if you have any questions, I look forward to helping you!
