Real Estate Broker
Coldwell Banker Seal
How long have you worked in Real Estate?
What is your specialty?
Buyers and sellers.
What is one tip you have for someone looking to buy or sell a home?
Always consult with a broker first.
What is the most unusual thing you’ve encountered while working in real estate?
I moved to Vancouver three years ago. I bought my first house “for sale by owner” without a broker. Later on I found out it is only for a 55+ community and cannot be used as a rental. I had to list it with a broker to sell it and lost 13K. This is why I encourage buyers to consult a broker for better understanding of the process and regulation of the property.
What is the most challenging/gratifying aspect of what you do?
It can be a challenge to discuss and negotiate, and can also challenge your patience too.
What do you see in the future for real estate sales/prices?
The population is growing here and there is lots of opportunity. This is a very nice and peaceful area so I think the prices will still keep going up.
What do you enjoy doing when you are not working? Hobbies, volunteering, family, fun?
I own a dance studio (Meiya Arts Edu) and on weekends teach dance and ballet. I volunteer my time to my local school and local Chinese community. I enjoy sharing my 20 years of experience in stage performing. I like hunting and painting also.
What do you like about living in this area?
I enjoy the peace and quiet of this area!
