Read the interview questions below to learn more about this great agent.
What is your favorite part about being a real estate agent?
My Favourite part of being an agent is thinking on your feet. I like the challenge of negotiating and coming up with a solution that will make my clients proud to complete the transaction. Another favourite part of being an agent is hearing the feedback from clients for a job well done. I love helping people and knowing that I have positively influenced someone’s day is a great feeling and makes me proud to be a real estate agent.
What is a goal that you have for yourself for the next year of your career? What do you want to work on the most and why?
The goal I have for the next year of my career is to do more commercial transactions. I have a passion for business, being in a position where I can help someone else’s business grow exponentially motivates and aspires me to work hard for them. What I’d also like to work on is securing more listings. I have a talent for marketing and would like more opportunities to showcase that talent.
What kind of coaching programs and seminars have you taken over the years and what is your favorite topic?
One program that came to mind is the New Home Sales Course. I enjoyed taking this course because it helped sharpen some of my skills when it comes to home construction. It allowed me to eliminate some of the surprises that may arise when new owners take possession.
What do you look forward to in bringing a Keller Williams to the Winnipeg market?
I look forward to bringing Keller Williams to the Winnipeg market, not only being a great brand, but the training and education is far superior to any other of its kind. One of the things I’ve noticed about Keller Williams is that it thrives on the success of all the individual agents, not just the owners of the company. It keeps everyone involved; no decision is made without the consulting of all the agents. It’s an open book when it comes to operating costs, as a numbers guy, I can appreciate that.
Charity and volunteer work is a big part of our philosophy. What kind of volunteer work have you done in the past and how did it make you feel?
I’ve done a number of volunteer positions in my past. I admire all the programs out there designed to target different populace and fulfill their individual needs. Two demographics that I have personally helped out with are children with behavioural issues no longer under the care of their paternal parents and adults living with disabilities. As mentioned before, I like challenges. I like situations that allow me to think on my feet…these programs do just that. There is no other feeling in the world than the satisfaction of helping someone in need, which is what I enjoy most about volunteering.
So, when you have some time to yourself what do you like to do?
In my spare time, I enjoy spending it with family and friends. I’m an outdoorsman at heart and enjoy taking off to the lake, doing some fishing, hiking, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, camping, etc. I’m an avid gym goer and enjoy challenging myself at Shapes. I’m a movie buff, I like all kinds of movies, but superhero movies are one of my favourites. Technology is a desire of mine too; I like to keep up to date with the latest gizmos and gadgets
