I have lived and worked in the Service Industry in Ucluelet for over a decade. During this time I managed a small, very successful Restaurant. I have been highlighting the surrounding attractions to visitors in the evenings and in turn, I have been listening to their experiences on their daily excursions. From travellers' impressions of the area it became quite apparent to me that there is a strong desire for many visitors to acquire a spot of their own here on the west coast.
My involvement in the tourist industry left me with a great respect for our local community and their welcoming attitude during the busy summer season. My involvement in a small business for ten plus years has enabled me to witness the market fluctuations and the effect that it had on our local community. I saw the areas resilience from the economic downswing and then the following growth and recovery back to a healthy vigor.
My partner and I purchased land and built our own home in Ucluelet. I am familiar with all the intracicies involved with this type of venture. I will continue to learn and study the planning and building process from zoning to building codes and budgeting. I am heavily influenced by my partner who is co-owner of a respected construction company here in town. It is advantagous in this industry to understand the quality of build that is required in order to survive our unique climate. BC housing is continuing to evolve to meet energy efficient demands and the building codes are following suit. These influences are important to consider in any future property or construction project that buyers are considering.
On a personal note, I am easy to approach and have good communication skills. I am open-minded and adaptable to different people’s requests. And I think that my ability to multi-task and work under pressure is a definite strength when working for my clients in any transaction. I believe in paying great attention to detail while also being productive, and will always aspire to consistently bring knowledge to the table to support my client’s decisions and assist in their real estate endeavors.
