About Me:Hello and congratulations on your decision to buy or sell a home. I moved to Squamish in 2008 from Fiji and since then, the conclusion is that I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else in the lower mainland with my young family. Squamish has a fantastic sense of community which continues to grow every year. With grade school age children, you will find me actively volunteering at our Mamquam Elementary School heading popcorn days, Christmas Craft fairs and much more. As an active member of the local community, my knowledge about the neighborhoods within Squamish and each area has something unique to offer. I would welcome the opportunity to show you around or if you are needing to sell, highlight what makes your neighborhood a place to call home. Working in the corporate world prior to my real estate business has equipped me with a vast knowledge needed to bring two parties together to a common ground. I believe and strive to make every clients’ real estate journey a wonderful experience. I work with your timeline and pace to ensure your decisions are made from a knowledge first approach. Equipped with the latest technology, we can also make deals happen even if we are not able to drive and meet up. As I always tell my clients “timing is very important”, please reach out today and we could formulate a real estate goal customized to your needs. Let my 8 years of local real estate knowledge assist you in taking the next step.

About Me:As a resident of Squamish for almost a decade, I am committed to providing my clients with the highest standard of service backed up by my extensive knowledge of this beautiful place we call home. I understand that buying and selling a home are the biggest decisions most people will ever make and I believe that such a large investment deserves the highest standard of integrity and professionalism. My background and experience in construction and renovations gives me a unique perspective when it comes to real estate. Not only can I help you to identify and cost deficiencies and future possible issues, whether they be structural, integral or simply visual; but, the knowledge I have gained over the years is an invaluable asset when it comes to discussing alterations that will make a space work better for your lifestyle or looking at changes that can be made to increase your property value. I love Squamish and can often be found promoting the community and enjoying everything that the Sea-to-Sky Corridor has to offer. When I am not in the office or on the road working with my clients, I can most commonly be found mountain biking, rock climbing, or backcountry touring/snowboarding. I immigrated from Poland to Canada with my family when I was three and grew up between Montreal and Toronto until I finally made the move to the mountains. Thanks to all the moving my family did, I can proudly serve my clients in three languages: Polish, French and English. Showing off this beautiful town to my family, friends, and clients is one of my favourite things. Squamish is a place that offers a fulfilling life for families and individuals of all ages and interests. It is a tight knit community that has a warm and neighbourly feel. There is an incredible network of inspiring people living and sharing the unique Squamish lifestyle and I am passionate about helping my clients experience it. My priority is to ensure that you are completely happy with your real estate decisions and to make the processing of buying or selling property in Squamish as easy and straightforward as possible. If you have any questions or are interested in learning more about real estate in Squamish, I am always available.

About Me:I grew up living off the land in a small community in Northern British Columbia where I learned the value of a hard days work and where I gained a huge appreciation for small town living and the importance of getting to know your neighbours. After obtaining my Commercial Pilot licence at the age of 21, I went on to explore the world on numerous adventures including marrying my husband in a tiny village near Mt.Everest, Nepal. I came back from traveling with an even larger zest for the outdoors and immersed myself in numerous technical courses that would one day help me to pursue a career as an Outdoor Adventure Guide. Working as a Guide, throughout the Canadian Rockies, Vancouver Island and the Sea to Sky Corridor, is what ultimately led me to discover Squamish in 2001 while leading a multi-day adventure trips in the area with my co-guide, and husband, Buzz. Seeing all that Squamish had to offer we knew immediately that this was the place we would call home. Over the years I have immersed myself in all that Squamish has to offer: From the world class outdoor recreation activities and the numerous community events to the many volunteer opportunities and, of course, the truly wonderful people that live here. I have many years of experience volunteering for ‘Emergency Services’ such as Nelson Search & Rescue and the Squamish Red Cross Disaster Management Team. I have also served as a Volunteer Firefighter and as a Professional Firefighter. I am well respected in the business community in Squamish. I spent a number of years on the Squamish Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, as well as, held the role as President. I enjoy being involved in a vast networking community in Squamish and the Lower Mainland. I have offered my expertise as a business consultant to new and growing businesses in the area. I have sat on the Board of Variance with the District of Squamish, was asked to sit on one of the District of Squamish Bylaw Committees and find great satisfaction in being active and participating with their many open forums for discussion on potential growth and change in the area. In the past, I have facilitated and held meetings on heated topics such as, dubbed “Oceanfront 101” and “Garibaldi at Squamish 101.” Keeping my finger on the pulse of Squamish is integral to my success and yours. In my industry they say the “cream rises to the top.” I have been in Real Estate since 2006 and for years I have been known in my community as an experienced, highly successful, honest, and reliable Realtor. I do so by being well informed on the area, the market and the most current marketing tools. My attention to detail and work ethic are top notch. Most importantly, you will find that I am easy going and of good character, I keep my ego in check. First and foremost, I want to ensure the buying and selling process goes as smoothly as possible for you and that your goals are met. My family is very important to me. I have a fantastic husband and a Lakeland Terrier named Max! My husband, Buzz, has been at my side since 1999. We have guided clients to the top of peaks together, we have travelled the world together, we have sat side by side on the big red fire engine (he is also a Firefighter) and we have an exciting ‘bucket list’ that we continue to strive towards. Our goals are lofty and our list of ‘things to do’ is long but we have the perfect basecamp to achieve our healthy, happy lifestyle. After having travelled the world over I am confident that, with its friendly people and countless lifestyle and business opportunities, there is no better place in the world to call home than Squamish.
