One of the happiest fellows you will ever meet, Don was born in this west coast paradise we call Victoria, and loves it. He knows all the neighbourhoods inside-out and can help you select the best one for your family's needs. With a loving wife and two energetic young children, he is very familiar with the schools, parks and beaches and all the places you enjoy with family and friends.
A natural driven entrepreneur with a fondness for business and finance, at the young age of 18 he created and grew a wildly nationally successful computer chain in the 90's, expanding to seven national stores by 2003, making it a multi-million dollar grossing company within it's first four years which financed his entry into real estate and investment properties. As a result Don is very technically inclined and uses this knowledge to implement many original and unique aspects into his real estate career.
Recognized by his peers for his high impact advertising, branding creativity and innovative marketing practices have had him featured in many national publications including Profit Magazine, Macleans and the Real Estate Magazine, the premier business publication for Canada's real estate industry.
He is a member of Profit Magazine's Top 100 fastest growing companies, and has been honoured to win scores of awards including Young Entrepreneur of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year (twice), Top 40 Under 40 (at age 30), and dozens more.
Don invests an enormous amount of time and money creating and employing marketing tools to expose your property to the widest range of qualified buyers. With an array of hundreds of premium internet domain websites, he drives traffic from Victoria and beyond right to your property. He also uses traditional tried and true methods of advertising, such as radio, postcards, brochures, magazines and newspapers to ensure the largest possible audience.
Within Don's first full year of real estate, he was awarded by the Victoria Real Estate Board as a superior performer at the annual MLS awards, and has been a proud recipient every year since.
Don focuses on his clients rather than his commissions, one of the primary reasons for his success. The selling and buying process should be an very exciting and enjoyable process, a belief that Don holds true.
"Receiving thank you cards and kind words from clients, and knowing their real estate experience was a sensational and positive part of their life, is what drives me. I don't need an alarm clock, passion for my work and the new challenges the day brings wakes me up early every morning!"
Don is always working extremely hard for his clients and their best interests. His work ethic is top notch, and he genuinely listens to his clients, ensuring their success and happiness.
