I have lived on Bowen Island since 1988. Since April 2005 I have been a Realtor® working full-time exclusively on Bowen under the auspices of Macdonald Realty.
In 2009 I attained Bowen Island’s Top Producer status and have held that position ever since. In 2015 and 2016 I was the Top Producing Realtor in the West Vancouver office and in 2017 and 2018 the Top Producing Realtor out of the Downtown Vancouver office.
Also, for the last 11 years I have qualified for Medallion Club – being in the top 10% of sales for all Realtors throughout the Lower Mainland in the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV). Finally, taking this one step further, in 2015, 2017 and 2018 I achieved the prestigious President’s Club status – the top of 15,000+ realtors with Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver.
My past work experience has been diverse and has given me an excellent foundation for entering the real estate field. I was a pharmaceutical sales representative for 8 years, which provided a good education in sales and marketing. For 12 years I was the BC Regional Administrator of a national Guide Dog school. In the 7 years prior to obtaining my real estate license I owned and operated Elliott Gardening Services, catering to over 150 clients on Bowen Island. I sold the business in 2004. At the same time, I was a part-time Animal Control Officer, which evolved into a Bylaw Officer position.
I spent most of my years growing up on the North Shore. Like many others I felt the lure of Bowen Island and moved here in 1988 when my two boys were 10 months and 2 years old. This has been a wonderful community in which to bring them up in, and now at ages 31 and 33 they value Bowen Island as much as I do.
My kids attended Bowen Island Community School, Rockridge Middle School and West Vancouver High School before heading off to University. Frazer has since returned to Bowen Island with his wife and young son. Bryn lives on the North Shore with his wife and hopes to return to Bowen soon.
I have been active in many ways on Bowen over the years, most recently as past President of the Tunstall Bay Community Association and Board Member of the Bowen Island Community Foundation.
For the foreseeable future I am dedicated to life as a Realtor®, and will work hard to improve and act honourably, with integrity, and in the best interests of our clients – either Buyers or Sellers.
