Real Estate? How does that fit? Well, my experience comes mostly from a 30 year career in Real Estate where I was an agent, a Manager and the Owner of a large office. This experience shows how difficult it can be to be successful and lead a balanced life so some of my posts will be geared specifically to REALTORS and how they can be better.
- These ideas come from my personal experience, inspiring movies, Books and other blog posts that I read.
- You can expect at least two posts per week.

During my journey I have learned how important it is to help others along the way. For you to become a better and more fulfilled person is the sole reason and purpose for this blog.
- I am a former Broker Owner of a RE/MAX Real Estate Franchise. Ray and I grew our office to three locations and about 100 REALTOR’s from 30 when we took over the office. We recognized the value in training our team and the importance of having them work in areas of their strengths.
- This philosophy led us to participate in many training opportunities and eventually to become a certified trainer and coach under the umbrella of John Maxwell. The John Maxwell Team was founded in 2011 and I am a Founding Partner.
- The Training material offered by the JMT are very beneficial in establishing our personal growth plan.
- Sonya and I have been happily married for over 40 years. Wow! Time flies when you are having fun and every year with her has been an adventure. We have three adult children and are blessed with 8 grandchildren.
- It is true what they say. Grandchildren make having children worthwhile!
- As a Follower of Jesus Christ I believe we have not only been created with incredible potential but the best way to discover this potential is through our relationship with Him. He promised that he came to bring us an abundant life. When I observe His incredible creation I see but a glimpse of what abundance should be about. So the focus of the journey.
- I love watching football. Almost as much as when I was younger and able to play it. Hockey and baseball are pretty good too. That might sound like blasphemy for a Canadian to put football before hockey but what can I say.
- Computers and gadgets have a way of holding my interest as well and I am continually trying to figure better ways of doing things.
- Having grown up in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia, we get spoiled by being in close proximity to the majestic mountains as well as within an hours drive to the fathomless Pacific Ocean.
