My Background
I have spent most of my career as an intermediary. Starting out of college in the insurance industry, it was common in the 70's and 80's for Brokerages to be in the Insurance / Real Estate / Mortgage and Investment Businesses. Growing up in this environment has given me a vast knowledge of all the elements necessary to provide unequaled service to my clients. As a result of this background I provide direct Real Estate and Mortgage services to my clients through Century 21 Explorer Realty and Partners Financial Services.

Marketing Grad from Algonquin College. Holds a C.I.P. designation (Chartered Insurance Professional) with Insurance Institute of Canada. Area of concentration is Risk Management. Holds a C.I.P.S. designation (Certified International Property Specialist)

In addition to operating Century 21 Explorer Realty Franchise and the Partners Financial Services, Mortgage Brokerage, I am still very active in the Commercial / Industrial & Agricultural real estate markets in Eastern Ontario.
